New Moon June. 2012

New Moon June. 2012

This month's New Moon occurs on June 20, 2012, 0:02 JST (all the timing in this article is to be calculated in JST) at the 29th degree of Gemini. By the way, it is my birthday, too! I remember that I was spoken to by a certain lady in a lecture room at the UAC, and she said she reads this blog! I am very pleased, and it becomes my energy to keep on writing those articles. Since January, we are thinking about degree meanings with Sabian symbols as hints. The symbol is "The first mockingbird of spring". I have explained that to think about degree meaning, we have to geometrically divide sign into smaller units until the width reduces to 1 degree. I am taking up the way in which a sign is divided first into 3 sections of 10 degrees. Then this 10 degree is further divided into 2 sections of 5 degrees. Finally, this 5 degree section is divided into 5 of each degree. With each dividing operation, we are adding a bit of meaning assigning a role signified by the number within the small section as a whole. So the 29th degree of Gemini belongs to the third 1/3 of the sign, second half of the 10 degree and 4st of the 5 degree section. Let us code this as "3-2-4" in this article.

Now let's think about what is the meaning of dividing up to a certain number of parts. Zodiac it self is divided into 12 signs as parts. I think the number 12 symbolize "organizational confinement". So division of 12 implies 12 steps toward growing into organizationally confined whole. In the same way, if we divide something into 3, we are analyzing 3 steps to become grown and characterized (which the number 3 symbolizes). The same image of dividing 12 signs into 3 "perspectives(as termed in Glenn Perry's text)", personal-interpersonal-transpersonal applys to this, too. So we are talking about generalization of the function of Gimini's developing personal intelligence and communications theme. Divide by 2 means analyzing 2 steps to become aware of the theme of the region (which the number 2 symbolizes). So we are developing objective awareness rather than subjective of the first half.

Then we finally divide the 5 degree area into 5 parts of 1 degree. 5 signifies expression of creativity. So we are thinking about 5 steps to creatively express the theme of the whole 5 degrees area. The first step of those 5 steps (with the latter half of the third section of Gimini, this is the symbol "Winter frost in the woods"), is to simply observe the theme of the area. The Geminian intellectual function freezes the forest(bunched togetherness of the third section is felt) and enables to describe various conditions of existence. The second step is to sense the reaction to the first movement. "A gypsy coming out of the forest." is thinking about how his observation could be utilized or produce a certain result. Then the third step is accumulation of the observations and their understandings. The symbol "A man declared bankrupt" implies that observations grows into a certain whole condition in conclusion, which leads to some understandings on value of culture or society. When on 4th step, one tries to utilize the knowledge to be of service in a community culture. "The first mockingbird of spring" is the necessary parts to establish atmosphere of spring newly arrived. The fifth step is the creative output of this five degree area. "Bathing beauties" image in this context is the will to affect knowledge in the community by spreading words that the spring has come. This process of five steps are around every degree we analyze with Sabian symbol, so being aware of the context helps focusing the meaning of the symbol.

Aspects to the Sun

A week before the New Moon, the Sun has touched Saturn and leader came up in the scene to churn out a direction after some power struggle in communications(Mercury translation of Uranus-Pluto). After the New Moon, the Sun enters into Cancer and makes contact with Neptune on 6/24 and then with Pluto-Uranus on 6/29-30, which suggests the leader tries to affect the general atmosphere and feeling of the country and the culture and induce big change.

Then on 7/15, the Sun will be in contact with Saturn with Mercury and Uranus turns its direction. There will be an effort on the leader's part to put his idealism into actuality.

Aspects among the rest of the planets

There are two important exact aspect of note among outer planets for this Moon month, one is the square between Uranus and Pluto on 6/24, and the other is the square between Jupiter and Neptune on 6/25. It is the mixture of idealistic vision and deep urge of reformation. Those energy could be utilized constructively as advocation of the ideal vision support the firm purpose of reform to proceed steadily, or disorganizedly as anxiety caused by the unclearness feeds the upheaval and turn it into the state of panic.

The first inner planet to track is Mercury which is very active this month, and turns to retrograde at the end of this Moon month. Mercury makes contact with Saturn and Mars soon after the New Moon on 6/21 so there should be some projects or plans to put into action, which could be related to the power struggle mentioned above. But it seems to lead to a larger power struggle in which the leader has to face with big decision as the Sun goes into the aspect with Uranus-Pluto. Meanwhile, Mercury will ingress into Leo for dramatic communications and touches Jupiter(6/30), Venus(7/4) and Uranus(7/5). Idealism will be dramatically expressed and sought after. Enthusiastic addressing of opinion and some formation of cooperation might be seen around this period.

Next let's look at what Venus is up to. Venus is now retrograding, and we have talked last month about its reconstructing of basic influence which will become fundamental for some 100 years from now. Due to its turning to direct and Mercury's turning retrograde, Venus and Mercury forms sextile three times this Moon month. And Venus also touches Uranus which squares Pluto throwing the importance of individuation into the theme of ongoing cultural and structural transformation. This theme should be added to the contents of idealism.

Next, let us talk about Mars, the action department. First, still in Virgo of pointing out sheer details, Mars touches Mercury on 6/21 as we talked about in the above Mercury section. Then after going into the balancing sign of Libra, Mars touches Jupiter, Pluto and Uranus towards the end of this Moon month. It might be expressed as radical protesting movement for reforming.

Planets which change direction or sign

Planets other than Sun and Moon sometimes change their direction of apparent movement seen from the earth. When a planet changes its direction, it moves slowly and may leave its mark on various social events in the world. Within this Moon month, the planets changing its direction are Saturn, Venus, Uranus and Mercury. Saturn is a planet which establishes social structure and order and take responsibility accordingly. When retrograding, people tends to look at those structure and rules from personal point of view. It is important to reflect those personal point of view to social rules in order for people to follow the rules from 6/25. Venus has been retrograding since 5/15 and priotizing advocation of each individual value. On returning to direct, normal Venusian function of seeking cooperation and making peace comes back from 6/27. Uranus will turn retrograde on 7/13, from then on,, the purpose of reform and improvement tends to become more personal. And Mercury will go retrograde from 7/15, so we had better be careful about communication, whether intentions are understood correctly.improvement tends to become more personal. And Mercury will go retrograde from 7/15, so we had better be careful about communication, whether intentions are understood correctly.

And planets, especially those that move slowly, change their signs in sync with shifts in corresponding profile of social or collective psychology. Within this Moon month, the planet among the planets which travel slower than the earth changes its sign is Mars. Mars changes its sign from Virgo to Libra on 7/3. While in Virgo, we tend to assert or act on account of making ends meet and details correct. When Mars goes into Libra, people tend to take action in order to cooperate and make peace.

During this Moon month, keeping the points I have raised above, let's try to use our Gemini Sun's energy of personal ability to spread words to let people realize that the new season has just arrived. It should be interesting to observe those symbols reflected in the real socio-situations in the world.
