A total lunar eclipse occurs when the Sun, Earth and Moon align in close proximity to the Moon’s Nodes and the Moon passes through the deeper shadow cast by the Earth, the umbra, where no direct light from the Sun can reach her. However, the Earth’s atmosphere refracts light, while at the same time filtering it, which illuminates the Moon with a series of varying red colors, depending on the prevailing conditions. This particular lunar eclipse is a Blood Moon and the fourth and final in an ongoing tetrad and the word is that ‘something is going to change’ to which the Sabian Symbol for the lunar eclipse is a testament. Lunar eclipses are felt internally and can trigger unconscious and psychic issues, which constitute our shadow material that is thus being brought ‘into the light of awareness’. Because this particular Lunar eclipse is conjunct the South Node of the Moon, we can expect a release of accumulated emotions and insights. A point has been reached that tips the scales for us. Moreover, we just started a new relationship cycle, during which we have a chance to balance, reconcile and harmonize conditions in our life we struggled with for some time. This readjustment reconnects us with our ‘audience’ or to the social scene and helps us with our chosen mission. It is necessary though that we rekindle our inner flame, stoke the fire that burns within us and rouse our passion for the causes we’ve invested our energy in in the past. Pluto, who has been moving in retrograde motion since April 17, has turned direct 2 days ago. Time to rise from the ashes and to bring those projects we hold sacred back to life. As the impulse that sounded forth with the Virgo New Moon on September 13 culminates, the one that was seeded back in April with the Aries New Moon, is bearing fruits as well. Thus, ‘the girl’s basketball ball team’ (Sabian Symbol for the Virgo NM) has grown ‘a wing’ (Sabian Symbol for the Aries FM) – ‘the physical training for group integration’ (keynote of the Sabian Symbol for the Virgo NM) has resulted in the ‘capacity for self-transcending’ and opened us up for ‘a new dimension of Being’ (keynote of the Sabian Symbol for the Aries FM), while ‘the music of the spheres’ (Sabian Symbol for the Aries NM) is being ‘transmitted in form of seed ideas or solid and illuminating truths’ (keynote of the Sabian Symbol for the Libra Sun). Or in other words, ‘a new world can be built based on these teachings that are being transmitted to us’ (Sabian Symbol for the Libra Sun) for which the Pope’s (who is the ‘highest representative of God’ on Earth) message to the world is an excellent example.
The Sabian Symbol for the Full Moon at 4:40 Aries states:
“A triangle with wings. Keynote: The capacity for self-transcending – a NEW DIMENSION of Being.”
The Sabian Symbol for the Sun at 4:40 Libra states:
“A man revealing to his students the foundation of an inner knowledge upon which a ‘new world’ could be built. Keynote: The necessity for the youthful spirits to learn from a teacher, who through his long experience has been able to reach solid and illuminating truths, i.e. ‘seed ideas’ – TRANSMISSION.”
(Dane Rudhyar, “An Astrological Mandala: The Cycle of Transformations and its 360 Symbolical Phases”, Pages 53 and 175, respectively)
This reminds us of the famous Buddhist proverb: “When the student is ready the teacher will appear.” Therefore, we can say that truths or teachings we will hear or spread will fall on fertile grounds. So, listen to the ideas and suggestions experienced people have to offer and start over.
Tarot card of the day is the “Queen of Wands”, suggesting that we’re renewing ourselves as we’re summoning our creative energy and approach our life’s situations energetically and confident. We are not afraid of challenges and use our tremendous energy constructively as well as within the scope of our capabilities, which means we’re equipped to be successful and to effectively multi-task.
