New Moon Nov. 2012

This month's New Moon occurs on Nov. 14, 2012, 7:08 JST (all the timing in this article is to be calculated in JST) at the 22nd degree of Scorpio. Since January, we are thinking about degree meanings with Sabian symbols as hints. The symbol is "Hunters starting out for ducks". I have explained that in order to think about degree meaning, we have to geometrically divide a sign into smaller units until the width reduces to 1 degree. I am using the method in which a sign is divided first into 3 sections of 10 degrees(decans). 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 22nd degree of Scopio, where the New Moon this month is, belongs to the third decan of the sign, first half of the decan and 2nd of the 5 degree section. Let us code this as "Scorpio 3-1-2" 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 (or trans-personalization) of the function of Scorpio's developing personal sense of beauty, fairness and socializing 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 subjective awareness rather than objective of the second half, which will be developed afterward based on the experience here.

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 former half of the third section of Scorpio, this is the symbol "A soldier derelict in duty"), is to simply observe the theme of the area. The Scorpio's function of digging deeper insight and sympathizing with others(other emotional or cultural background), working collectively here in the 3rd decan, is now actually experienced as the situation in which one is trying to understand the opponent's feelings and cultural background. The second step is to sense the reaction to the first movement. "Hunters starting out for ducks", which is the theme degree for this month, is symbolic of what happens when one gets too sympathetic to others i.e. the duck (or the soldier, for that matter) becomes a target to the hunters and thus interaction is induced. Then the third step is accumulation of the observations and their understandings. The symbol "A bunny metamorphoses into a fairy" tells the interaction leads to metamorphoses of the emotion, an experience of feeling completely changed. When on 4th step, one tries to utilize the expressive ability to be of service in a community culture with decipline and refinement. "Crowds coming down the mountain to listen to one man" is describing that the metamorphosed man shares his experience in a community to make the effect long standing. The fifth step is the creative output of this five degree area. The image of "An X ray" in this context is that if we utilize our ability to understand things unseen with naked eye properly, we are able to learn the existence of hidden illness (intention to utilize our ability to explore the hidden underworld). 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

The New Moon is also an eclipse. So the effect will last longer than usual. This New Moon is on the midpoint of Uranus and Pluto, and oppose the Mercury in the chart of the last eclipse in May, it might relate to a drastic movement leadership might take. On 11/18, the Sun touches Mercury which is strengthening its idealistic view born last month and buffered by contacts with Neptune. The image of leader listening to his idealistic brain and proceeds to enter risk-taking Sagittarius, and touching Neptune and Uranus (11/22-26) to make some change of course. The last aspect the Sun makes this Moon month is with Jupiter on 12/3. Leadership may express important vision around this timing.

Aspects among the rest of the planets

There are no important exact aspect of note among outer planets for this Moon month, but as mentioned above, the Sun in this eclipse chart is at the midpoint of ongoing Uranus-Pluto square, this symbolism might come to the front in various events for a few month.

The first inner planet to track is Mercury which has just changed its direction and touched Neptune second time in these sequence. Then on 11/18, as mentioned above, the brain allures leader to take the idealistic vision, which might lead to drastic change in leader's course of action. After going direct and ingressing back into Sagittarius, Mercury touches Neptune again.

Next let's look at what Venus is up to. As we have tracked last month, Venus takes part in the formation of idealism with Mercury, and forming various cooperation under the idealism. The last aspect before this eclipse is with Jupiter and this stimulated some formation of cooperation under a certain vision or philosophy. Then Venus will make contact with Neptune, Saturn and Pluto-Mars from 11/22 to 11/30 so we hope there be some formation of cooperating group to make ideal real with some influence and practical ability.

Next, let us talk about Mars, the action department. After going into practical sign of Capricorn, Mars will touch Neptune on 11/17 and then Uranus on 11/23. Then Mars will touch Saturn on 11/25, Pluto on 11/28 and Venus on 11/30! A lot of activities! As I am writing this article, it seems prime minister Noda has expressed his will to dissolve the lower house on 11/16. So in this period, those politicians will be busy reorganizing their stanses and start movement for the election.

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, only Mercury change their directions (Uranus will turn direct right after the next New Moon). Mercury has been retrograding since 11/7, and people now have tendency to think about themselves first which might lead to misunderstanding or miscommunication. Mercury then goes direct on 11/27 and the tendency becomes back to normal. While the Mercury retrograding period, people thought a lot about what each person needs him/herself, why don't we incorporate those points in order to make society a real sharing place for people ourselves when Mercury is direct.

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 that changes its sign is Mars. Mars were traveling through the sign of Sagittarius and people tended to assert their vision and philosophy in the period. As Mars goes into Capricorn from 11/17, people will tend to assert practical way to get things done.

During this Moon month, keeping the points I have raised above, let's try to use our Scorpio Sun's energy of voluntarily making sacrificial movement to induce metamorphoses in the collective society and establish a place in the society. It should be interesting to observe those symbols reflected in the real socio-situations in the world.
