Keeping our mind open and watching our attitude is particularly important today, because we could encounter challenges in relationship situations that require from us to think about our self-preservation and personal needs before we make bigger commitments and agree to something that wouldn’t be in our best interest. Therefore, we want to use the chance we have to review the developments, which have brought us to this point and what we were supposed to learn from them so that we can make better choices in the future, instead of repeating the same mistake.
The Sabian Symbol for the New Moon at 28:25 Aries states:
“The music of the spheres. Keynote: Attunement to cosmic order – LISTEN TO THE INNER VOICE.”
(Dane Rudhyar, “An Astrological Mandala: The Cycle of Transformations and its 360 Symbolical Phases”, Page 70)
This symbolical message implies that we need to focus on the larger cycles and thus look at the bigger picture or long-term outlook and also on what our individual experience has taught us to be able to predict future trends and see the pattern woven into the fabric of our lives. Therefore, the question we have to ask ourselves as we start over is do we really want to carry on in the same way or are we ready to release the ‘burden’?
Tarot card of the day is “The Chariot”, suggesting that we take control and move forward with care. There is a need to remain focused and to keep the emotions in check. We need to harness our energy and apply it wisely. Self-discipline is important to be able to balance the light and shadow aspects of our personality.
