- Sabian Symbols Showing the Light of
Clairaudience Expressed As An Inner Rebirth -
This Full Moon is the fourteenth since the December 2020 Solstice conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn at 1 Aquarius which launched new 20 and 200 year eras. We’re headed into the future!
I’ll speak more about the bigger picture after the Sabian Symbol. For now, let’s take a closer look at this purifying, transformative, and accelerating Full Moon.
As the Full Moon fulfills the themes of the previous New Moon, we can use the self-transcending, innovative and reorganizing energies we launched two weeks ago and demonstrate our individuality in the larger group effort. We can now “see the Light” of the larger invisible transformative Plutonic presence in the collective field and express it by nurturing some things and eliminating others.
The Sun in Earth and the Moon in Water shows a time of the Cardinal Earth (practical initiatives) of Capricorn expressing its need for organized effective action through the Cardinal Water (active feelings) of Cancer. As all the planets are beginning maximum compression, this is still a tremendously Earthy chart which must find forms of expression through caring, nurturing, and/or decisions which further security and realignment with a larger sense of caring.
In this chart, 2 planets are in the first third of their signs, 3 planets are in the second third of their signs, and 5 planets are in the last third of their signs. This indicates a heavy emphasis on the individual, mental, and spiritual levels, and a relatively balanced distribution between the actional-material levels of life and the social/emotional levels. This will be an extraordinarily spiritualizing next two weeks!
Why Are Full Moons So Important?
At a Full Moon, that which has opened since the previous New Moon surfaces in a public form, and heads toward the culmination and fruition symbolized by the second half of any cycle. First half, birth into form and field. Second half, culmination and completion of the purpose of that cycle.
That’s why it’s important to regard the New and Full Moon charts as “God’s Footprints in Time,” since one follows the other in an unending sequence of births of newer and newer seeds. The New Moons show us the seeds that will flourish under the reflected light of the Full Moon.
Full Moons heighten feelings, due to the opposition of the Moon and the Sun. All the inner planets are now done with their run of oppositions to the outer planets. This chart has only two oppositions both in the same signs creating one powerful axis of “the Tension of Opposites.” We have the Moon opposed Sun conjunct Pluto generating awareness around 26-30 of Capricorn/Cancer, making them the drivers of our “awareness generator” for the coming two weeks.
Dispositors - What's the Backdrop to the Energies?
The Sun is in Capricorn, making Saturn its worldly ruler and Uranus its spiritual ruler. The Moon is in Cancer, ruling itself. Saturn is in Aquarius, its home sign, showing that Saturn continues its dominance of Lunations at this time of the year. At this time we have four final dispositors affecting all the other planets.
The Moon is ruled by itself; Mercury, Venus, the Sun, Uranus, and Pluto are all ruled by Saturn. Mars in Sag is ruled by Jupiter, which rules itself from its home sign of Pisces. Neptune, as usual, is a “standalone” planet, ruling itself.
By looking at how “chains of dispositors,” “final dispositors,” and “mutual reception” are in play between the planets, we get a clear picture of the backdrop for how each planet operates. You can find out more about dispositors in general, chains of dispositors, and mutual reception by going to Astrology Class – What Is A Dispositor and What Is Mutual Reception Between Two Planets?
The Sabian Symbols for the Full Moon
This Full Moon falls at 28 Capricorn and 28 Cancer. It is said that the last third (decan) of any sign deals with the individual, mental, and spiritual levels of life, and as the Lunation is in the third decan of those signs, invokes a sub-influence of Virgo and Pisces.
Since the Moon always focuses the light of the Sun in specific forms, the degree symbols for both are important. The Sun degree is the illumination or enlightenment of the Lunation, whereas the Moon shows us the potential forms that enlightenment will take. Though I’ve given you a sense of what this is about up to now, here’s where we go into detail.
The Solar Sabian symbol for the 28th degree of Capricorn is “A large aviary." In the original notes from the Marc Jones class on the symbols published in The Astrology of Personality, Rudhyar says this degree is one of “enhancement of personality by familiarity with spiritual values” and “Joying in the significance of things; or mental confusion.”
In his Astrological Mandala, he offers that this degree is one of “the enjoyment of spiritual values by the soul able to familiarize itself with their implication.” He states that birds symbolize spiritual forces which bring “joy and harmony to the consciousness,” and here there is “a picture of familiarity with inspiring experiences,” which may lack spontaneity.
He goes on to say this is a “complex state of inspiration,” which can bring confusion due to too many voices talking at the same time. He states this is a symbol of “clairvoyance” and the ability to tune into the inner voice. Rudhyar says it falls in the Span of Dependence, and is the synthesizing degree in the Individual-Mental level of the Scene of Group Performance in the Act of Capitalization.
Dr. Jones says this degree symbolizes a "differentiation of interests” and our gift for bringing any line of effort to serve any other effort we may be doing. Here our “wide spread of aspiration is encompassed in the over-all realization” of how we have organized our life, and our breadth of resources can solve our “everyday problems.” He states how we administer our potential socially is our “self-fulfillment.”
He offers us the keyword COMMUNITY. We are told that when positive, the degree is "exceptional success in making all personal concerns a matter of common welfare.”
The Lunar Sabian Symbol for the 28th degree of Cancer is "A modern Pocahontas.” According to Rudhyar’s notes from the Marc Jones class, this degree symbolizes the “human soul as intercessor between primordial natural forces and the intellectual order,” “self-integration,” and “linkage.”
In the Astrological Mandala, he states the keynote is "inner rebirth through a total acceptance of the primordial values manifest in the human body and its natural functions.” He notes that this symbol is one of the mind being led to a more natural way of viewing life so that we can “again operate in tune with the vast process of the biosphere and recover the simplicity and inner peace which city life and business deny.”
He says this symbol is one of “the possibility of dramatic transformation.” He speaks of a “return to nature” which can change our view of alternatives. He says it falls in the span of Ingenuousness, and it’s the synthesizing degree of the individual and spiritual level of the Scene of Consolidation in the Act of Stabilization.
Dr. Marc E. Jones, creator of the Sabian Symbols, states that this is a symbol of “effective cooperation between various phases of human culture, such as those which have become crystallized in a faithfulness to the special values they have held intact and those which provide the new potentials of a genuine frontier spirit.” This phase brings the differences to unity, and “are a stimulus to a greater differentiation of the self in its own illimitable capacity for expanded relationships.”
He offers us the keyword COMPATIBILITY. He says that when operating in a positive manner, this degree is "high skill in bringing older or neglected reality to the service of fresher and more vital self-fulfillments.”
From these symbols it seems we can see the Light of learning to see opportunity, truth, and group work using spiritual energies we’re familiar with that “enhance our personality” expressed in forms of rebirth, becoming more natural, and expanded relationships which show how well we’re integrated and attuned to the natural order.
Any confusion we may have should be a spur to see the Light of how to reorganize our lives and solve our problems using the spiritual values we have at our disposal to care for the “common welfare.” This can find significant form through sacrificing all which is lesser for that which helps us consolidate our personality to become a better vehicle to express our Higher Self.
Of note is the Sun is the same degree as the 2020 Jupiter SRX degree, and the Moon is the same degree it occupied at the December 2021 Solstice. So the next two weeks should illuminate the 2020 Jupiter retrograde theme, while giving more sensitivity to the personal experience of this Northern Hemisphere Winter.
Entering A New Era Blending Capricorn and Aquarius Cycles
As you know by now, we had numerous important long wave conjunctions in January 2020 which were set into motion in March 2020, including a 12 year cycle and a 33 year cycle! Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto all made conjunctions in Capricorn in January and March which were activated by Mars in March 2020. Mars completed its run at its conjunction with Saturn at 1 Aquarius which also set long wave preliminary Aquarian structures into play which are expanding and currently taking shape.
That “Great Compression” of planets in early 2020 created a very crowded house in a very narrow span of degrees, impacting where we have late Capricorn for many years to come. Add the three conjunctions of Jupiter with Pluto as it transited back and forth over the January and March degree points, and we’ve had a lot of long wave Pluto energies expanded which will show effects over the next decade! If you’re wondering how this Great Compression and those to come will impact us, please check out the linked articles on the bottom of Part 1 of this series published yesterday.
The wave that began last April and was given wings in December has taken clearer shape during the time Saturn has occupied 7-14 Aquarius this year. Last year we were “galvanized into action” and “liberated from adverse conditions.” This year Jupiter gave us an expansive view of all of Aquarius between January and mid-May. It passed through the Transfiguration Zone in late April and early May, again in early August when retrograde, and a final time in December, giving us three different experiences of “graduation into a new realm of Being” transforming our lives so we can see how we are related to other Light Beings in the collective field.
TransPluto, Divine Mother, and the Tests of Human Redemption
I’ve included this section for many years to keep you all aware of the workings of Divine Mother on our Earth in this Age in Transition. Rather than simply reprint it each month, I created this material as a separate article unto itself a while back which I’ve just updated. If you want to know more about the vast spiritual field coaxing us toward a great redemption of the promise of Life itself, please take a new look at TransPluto, Divine Mother, and the Spiritual Lessons of 2021. We have now entered a long period of getting over our prejudices and preconceptions, and approaching others from an angle of “the fellowship of humanity.”
At the 2020 World Teacher Full Moon of Sun in Gemini and Moon in Sagittarius I gave you a universal prayer/meditation offered to us by the Tibetan Master D.K. in April 1945 at the end of the war. Tens of millions around the world do this prayer every Full Moon, tuning into the Whole which we ALL are together. I said it every day for many years, and still say it every Full Moon. (It was a real trip to see eyes suddenly open and/or lightbulbs go on over people’s heads when I did it countless times riding the NYC subways when I lived there in the early 80s!)
In 1976 I changed a few words to make it more universal. For your consideration,
The Great Invocation
From the point of Light within the mind of God
Let Light stream forth into the minds of All,
Let Light descend on Earth
From the point of Love within the heart of God
Let Love stream forth into the hearts of All
May Christ return to Earth
From the center where the Will of God is known
Let Purpose guide the little Wills of All
The Purpose which the Masters know and serve
From the center which we call the Human Race
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.
Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.
Again, as I’ve offered you many times before, when you see the title "The Christ" if you are so inclined please substitute "World Teacher," "Bodhisattva," "Imam Madhi," "Krishna," “Kristos,” "Avalokiteshvara," "Maitreya," "Messiah," or any other term used to describe this Great Being. And if you substitute “Enlightened Ones” or “Wise Ones” for “Masters” I doubt it would offend anyone.
See you soon with part 3 covering aspects, planetary sequencing, and other important factors in this Full Moon.
