Astro-Notes on October 18, 2013 – Aries Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse 2013

The semi-sextiles between Venus in Sagittarius and Saturn in Scorpio and between Pallas in Leo and Jupiter in Cancer show the adjustments we made yesterday and keep making today control- and direction-wise to be able to renew our sense of structure and also to sustain our growth and prosperity (I, per example, talked to my current landlord yesterday evening about ‘a slightly extended stay’, by which I mean 1-2 days into November due to circumstances I can’t influence or control and then I sorted through all my banking statements from the time I had gotten my accounts back – today is my last day at the Goderich store). As the Libra lunation cycle climaxes in a Lunar Appulse Eclipse with the Aries Full Moon at 7:37 pm EDT, the things the miners brought to light (Sabian Symbol for the Libra New Moon) have resulted in the interaction of the spiritual will and the love principle (keynote of the Sabian Symbol for the Libra Sun) and at the same time does the impulse that sounded forth with the Aries New Moon on April 10 culminate and the pugilist, overwhelmed by his power(Sabian Symbol and keynote for the Aries New Moon), becomes obsessed by this potentiality(keynote of the Sabian Symbol for the Aries Full Moon).

Aries Full Moon-Lunar Eclipse 2013

The Sabian Symbol for the Moon at 25:45 Aries states:
“A man possessed of more gifts than he can hold. Keynote: Obsession by potentiality – WARNING against undertaking more as is as yet safe and sound to attempt.”
The Sabian Symbol for the Sun at 25:45 Libra states:
“An eagle and a large white dove change into each other. Keynote: The interaction of the spiritual will and of the love principle when critical needs arise – ADEPTNESS.”
(Dane Rudhyar, “An Astrological Mandala: The Cycle of Transformations and its 360 Symbolic Phases”, Pages 68 and 188-189, respectively)

Implied by these symbolical pictures is a new sense of Beingness that requires a balancing act from us, whereby we have to constantly juggle, compare and negotiate different aspects and terms of a situation and reconcile conflicts, while assessing and evaluating or weighing conditions in order to keep things in a state of dynamic equilibrium and also in proportion until everything fits and matches.

Tarot card of the day is the “7 of Swords”, emphasizing a need to remain focused, keep distractions at a minimum, sustain an effort and pour energy into our projects. We could be working in an unstable way, using evasive tactics or escaping from the situation somehow. Awareness of an irritated, distracted, restless or bored mentality is imperative. In order to succeed we must accept that we might require regular stimulus and change or our efforts might be futile. If something doesn’t work out as planned or expected, we need to stretch our mind and look for an alternative. In addition, we could be facing serious relationship issues, where it is best to avoid any confrontation, but to employ tact and diplomacy instead. Moreover, we need to be honest and upfront in all our dealings and at the same time be cautious and wary as to who we trust.
