- Sabian Symbols Showing the Light of
Foresight Expressed As A Creative Adventure-
This Full Moon is the fifteenth 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 visionary, adventurous, inhibition-shedding and electrifying Full Moon.
As the Full Moon fulfills the themes of the previous New Moon, we can use the “going within to know what’s coming” energies we launched two weeks ago and demonstrate our individuality in the larger group effort. We can now “see the Light” of how to manage our spiritual expression with an eye to what’s coming in the future.
The Sun in Air and the Moon in Fire shows a time of the Fixed Air (stable associative interactivity) of Aquarius expressing its synthesized vision of a greater ideal through the Fixed Fire (stable active inspiration) of Leo. As all the planets are in maximum compression, we continue to be squeezed in many ways, with everything converging in the part of our chart between late Capricorn and early Taurus. This is still a tremendously Cap and Aquarius focused chart which must find forms of expression through an individual, mental, and spiritual release and/or heartfelt activity.
In this chart, 1 planet is in the first third of their signs, 5 planets are in the second third of their signs, and 4 planets are in the last third of their signs. This indicates a heavy emphasis on the emotional and social levels of life, almost as much emphasis on the individual, mental, and spiritual levels, and not much in the way of the actional-material levels of life. This will be an extraordinarily social-spiritual focus for 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 one opposition creating one axis of “the Tension of Opposites.” We have the Moon opposed Sun generating awareness around 26-30 of Aquarius/Leo, 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 Aquarius, making Saturn its worldly ruler and Uranus its spiritual ruler. The Moon is in Leo, making the Sun its ruler. 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 three final dispositors affecting all the other planets.
The Moon is ruled by the Sun; Mercury, Venus, the Sun, Uranus, and Pluto are all ruled by Saturn. Jupiter 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 Aquarius and 28 Leo. 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 Libra and Aries.
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 Aquarius is “A tree felled and sawed.” 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 “Rich contribution of nature to all who work with foresight,” “intelligent preparation,” and “Calm yet potent faith in Providence.”
In the Astrological Mandala he goes on to say this is a degree of “knowledge and skill used in its natural surroundings for the satisfaction of vital basic needs.” This combines “natural living” with our ability to prepare for the future, using power and ingenuity, as well as efficiency and intelligence, in a harmonic beauty of acting.
He states it’s about “the efficient use of natural resources for insuring (our) well-being,” using “intelligent foresight.” This degree falls in the Span of Perspective, and is the third, or synthesizing degree, of the Act of Capitalization in the Scene of Management on the individual-mental level.
Dr. Marc E Jones, creator of the Sabian Symbols, says this is a degree of employing “a lesser reality for the development and sustainment of a greater,” and our ability “in a crisis to center (our) attention on the pressing functions and necessities” of our best interests. He states this is about “the human spirit’s joy in energy expended and satisfaction in the efficient use of skills and materials, with its experience poised in the fluidity of its self-expression.”
We are told the keyword is IMMEDIACY. He states that when operating in a positive manner, this degree is our “uninhibited and enthusiastic desire to be at work or to mobilize everything around (us) in (our) own interests.”
The Lunar Sabian Symbol for the 28th degree of Leo is “Many Little Birds on the Limb of a Large Tree.” According to Rudhyar’s notes from the Marc Jones class, this degree symbolizes the “social nature of experience as man finds sustainment in a larger whole of being” and “normal, collective self-expression.”
In the Astrological Mandala, he states the keynote is “a wide, and perhaps confusing, openness to a multiplicity of inspiring potentialities.” He says this can represent a stage of “the consciousness, aspiring to greater realizations or more impressive forms of self-expression, feels itself flooded with new ideas and new possibilities,” which can be both exciting and confusing.
He continues “it becomes necessary to focus oneself by limiting one’s field of vision and activity,” where “we should try not to be overwhelmed with potentialities” and enjoy “the wonderful lightness of feeling this may bring” after months or years. He says it falls in the span of Interpretation, and it’s the synthesizing degree of the individual and spiritual level of the Scene of Release in the Act of Stabilization.
Dr. Marc E. Jones, creator of the Sabian Symbols, states that this is a symbol of “the transcendence of the lesser things in life by a continual expansion of higher considerations, or of the individual’s ability in a crisis to center his attention on the enduring orientations through which (we) gain self-assurance.” He says “here is a happy lightness of the human spirit as it rejoices in its infinitely varying relations with the beautiful and the good, or as its experience is poised at a point of highest satisfaction.”
He offers us the keyword RAMIFICATION. He says that when operating in a positive manner, this degree is "effective mobilization of all the unrealized possibilities of our destiny.”
From these symbols it seems we can see the Light of learning to see how to use the lesser to build the greater, with joy of energy expended in a great work. This will be expressed through a mobilization of our unrealized possibilities in an enjoyable form. We will see a path to the future illuminated through our foresight which helps us know what needs to be managed to anticipate a future condition. This will be given form by us knowing “a normal expression” of our hearts.
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 April 2020 and was given wings in December has taken clearer shape during the time Saturn occupied 7-14 Aquarius in 2021. During early 2021, Jupiter gave us an expansive view of all of Aquarius, and then 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. That’s being activated over the next few weeks.
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 2022 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.
