As promised at the onset of this lunation cycle, the adjustment we’re making is culminating in the Full Moon and so is the impulse seeded with the Sagittarius New Moon from November 22. Thus, we finally know what course of action to take in a situation, where we feel compelled to influence a specific set of circumstances we’ve been struggling with and have reviewed our approach in this matter, going back and forth over this issue. Consequently, we’re ready and determined to take action in our own best interest. “The old Indian woman, who is selling artifacts of her tribe to passers-by” (Sabian Symbol for the Taurus New Moon) has become “a negro girl, who is fighting for her independence in the city” (Sabian Symbol for the Gemini Sun) and the “retired army veterans” (Sabian Symbol for the Sagittarius New Moon on Nov. 22) have “turned the flag into an eagle” (Sabian Symbol for the Sagittarius Full Moon).
The Sabian Symbol for the Full Moon at 11:49 Sag states:
“A flag turns into an eagle, the eagle into a chanticleer saluting the dawn. Keynote: The spiritualization and promotion of great symbols of a New Age by minds sensitive to its precursory manifestations – ANNUNCIATION.”
The Sabian Symbol for the Sun at 11:49 Gem states:
“A negro girl fights for her independence in the city. Keynote: Liberation from the ghosts of the past – LIQUIDATION of the past.”

Implied by these symbolical pictures is that we are ‘coming out’ with our truth in a rather convincing performance, because we are honest and authentic. We show our true nature.
Tarot card of the day is the “7 of Cups”, a card that represents a multiplicity of possibilities and choices, which need to be looked at for their potential – real or imagined – as well as for their basis in reality, whereby we need to be aware that not all that glisters is gold and that less enticing options might turn out to be great opportunities. Therefore, it’s important now to narrow our focus. A reality check is in order.
A great example in the news is Bruce Jenner’s transformation into Caitlyn Jenner. His new ‘Self’ is captured in stunning pictures in the magazine ‘Vanity Fair’.
