As the Sagittarius lunation cycle culminates in the Cancer Full Moon at 5:21 am EST together with the impulse seeded at the time of the Cancer New Moon back in mid July, the self-containment associated with the Chinese laundry (Sabian Symbol for the Sagittarius New Moon) has become fulfilled in a parade of dressed up rabbits (Sabian Symbol for the Cancer Full Moon), who imitate higher life forms, whereas the violent storm that raged through a canyon filled with expensive homes (Sabian Symboll for the Cancer New Moon in July) has made these homes lit by the Sun, where domesticated birds sing joyously (Sabian Symbol for the Sun in Capricorn). This speaks of developments in form of learning processes (keyword of the Sabian Symbol for the Cancer Full Moon) that brought awareness or enlightenment and have led to a spiritual awakening that is demonstrated in an evolution of consciousness (most clearly exemplified in the school shooting in Newtown, Ct.).
The Sabian Symbol for the Moon at 7:05 Cancer states:
“A group of rabbits dressed in human clothes walk as if on parade. Keynote: The tendency in all forms of life to imitate higher forms as a stimulus to growth – LEARNING PROCESSES.”
The Sabian Symbol for the Sun at 7:05 Capricorn states:
“In a sun-lit home domesticated birds sing joyously. Keynote: The wholesome happiness which subservience to the ideals and patterns of a well-established culture brings to those who accept them unreservedly – ENJOYMENT.”

Accordingly, Mercury in Sagittarius’ semi-sextile to the North Node in Scorpio (quincunx South Node
inTaurus) indicates a mental adjustment born from a growing understanding directed toward influencing our future prospects in order to prevent the same experiences from happening over and over again. As retrograde Ceres in Gemini perfects her tense sesqui-quadrate to Saturn in Scorpio, it is critical that we empower our position or stand as we rethink how to successfully adapt or apply the maternal principle to our life and circumstances and thus how to feel safe, supported and protected in our close environment.
Tarot card of the day is “The Tower”, signifying inevitable change that can bring liberation and freedom. Our present lifestyle, attitude or people in our environment are changing. There might be shock due to the suddenness of the events as well as upheaval, but if we’ve been stuck in a rut this will help us to climb out of it. Thus, we might receive revelations or insights that help us to see solutions to our problem(s).
