As the year continues its journey, the days already seems to fly by and the dark cold winter nights seems to give way to the anticipation, that the warmth of spring is not too far away.  The hope of optimism is ever eternal and present in one’s thoughts and one’s feelings as one faces the unknown expectations and experiences that are about to unfold.  Our faith and trust in promises and the ideology without action, whether they are ours or others, are on shaky grounds.  Our need and necessity to think and feel out of the box and the norm is not only knocking on our door, but is about to break it open.  In this atmosphere the 7 Leo 24 Full Moon on January 26th 2013 at 8:30 pm PST begins to beam its light implying our need to seek and define one’s sacred purpose in life.  The fixed stars in conjunction with Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto with their aspect with one another are reminding us to take a giant step forward into the unknown and the uncharted areas in understanding our destiny and our feelings and the way we see it.  That to create and to heal comes out of our wisdom and our courage in our sacred beliefs, in which we really are and were we are meant to be.

 

“The Sabian symbol for the Moon in 8th degrees of Leo and for the Sun in 8th degrees of Aquarius is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

 

Leo 8  A Bolshevik propagandist  This is a symbol of the indomitable expectation of the human spirit as it gathers strength from the innermost reaches of man’s own or enduring nature, here emphasized by the recurrent battles over social and political concepts.  The exceptional dynamic involved is seen in the selfless energy developed to an extreme by the revolutionists of each new age.  Implicit in the reversed symbolism is the need of the human community for worthy cause to which to rally in every aspect of its potentials.  The keyword is leaven.  When positive, the degree is a determination to share the soul’s vision and to make a permanent impact on history, and when negative, futile ranting against a multitude of superficial ills.

 

Aquarius 8  Beautifully gowned wax figures  This is a symbol of the ineradicable vanity of the human spirit as it gathers strength not only from the finery it wears but from a superficial display of woman’s form and man’s reputation, here emphasized  through personal idealizations.  A strong psychological dynamic for individual effort comes from the direct influence of outstanding and even notorious people, and implicit in the static symbolism of the waxworks is a necessity to recognize and identify the values worthy of emulation.  The keyword is impact.  When positive, the degree is achievement through the effective dramatization of human character on some level of everyday understanding, and when negative, futile effort to recapture outworn experience.

 

This symbol speaks to us about the fire of passion and the intense hope that rises in our souls when we support a cause we truly believe in.  The emphasis here is the selfless dedication to an ideology, especially when it includes the welfare of all.  The greatest advantage lies in aligning oneself with the most worthy causes, in seeking the greatest good for all concerned.  Implicit in this image is being a positive role model by demonstrating the highest virtues in practical every day living.  Emulation is the first step in achieving the qualities one is seeking to bring about in oneself and the second is the determination to dramatize one’s beneficial qualities by taking a fresh look at oneself and to be able to improvise, rearrange, and experiment until one arrives at the image that truly represents who we are.  Once we come to terms with our self, the direction and the reason for our sojourn in this life will become clear.  As the picture of the real us is established during this full moon period, the energies will unfold and help us to define our sacred purpose in life.
