New Moon June 2013

This month's New Moon occurs on June 9, 2013, 0:56 JST (all the timing in this article is to be calculated in JST) at the 19th degree of Gemini. Since last year, we are thinking about degree meanings with Sabian symbols as hints. The symbol of the New Moon degree is "A large archaic volume". 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 19th degree of Gemini, where the New Moon this month is, belongs to the second decan of the sign, second half of the decan and 4th of the 5 degree section. Let us code this as "Gemini 2-2-4" in this article.


Now let's think about what is the meaning of dividing up to a certain number of parts. Zodiac itself 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. This New Moon is located in the second decan, so we are talking about interaction between people (or inter-personal dimension) of the function of Gemini's developing ability of experiencing what's important to people when interacting. 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, building onto the basis learned in the first half for the experience here in the later 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 second section of Gemini, this is the symbol "A woman suffragist haranguing"), is to simply observe the theme of the area. The Gemini's function of refinement of personal intelligence and communications ability is tried earnestly to be expressed and understood by people around. Point here is that the focus is the response of the audiences who receives the message put forward by the suffragist, symbolized by the LATTER HALF (response) of the 2nd decan of the sign Gemini. The second step is what happens inside of the suffragist when faced with the theme of first movement (or response to her opinion). Be aware of the object the first step is running after. "The head of health dissolved into the head of mentality" is what is happening inside the suffragist's mind in order to convey her points to other people. Then the third step is accumulation of the observations and their understandings. The symbol "Two Chinese men talking Chinese" implies the importance of being aware of the container (or language as a culture) in which the message is kept, in terms of conveying meaning to other people. When on 4th step, with the image of "A large archaic volume", which is the theme degree for this month, we are witnessing the container talked above is built firmly in large scale. The theme of the 5 degree area thus refined with discipline. The fifth step is the creative output of this five degree area. The image of "A cafeteria" in this context is that we control the container (or environment) in which we communicate our information between people. We became aware of meaning of creatively using our will to establish environment necessary to express our points and to be understood. 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

Last aspect to the Sun before the New Moon was on 6/2 when the Sun touched Uranus. We have talked about "would continue to proceed firmly and to express his/her vision in the reforming direction". Since it is around the day to celebrate the constitution, there are some expression of opinions about amendment of the constitution. After the New Moon, on 6/20 the Sun will touch Jupiter, and leaders might come up with new vision for better future. After ingressing into Cancer on 6/21, the Sun will make contact with Saturn and Neptune on 6/26-27 establishing so called grand trine. Leadership would be trapped emotionally within the old structure and idealistic image to hold on to. Then on 7/2-4, the Sun touches Pluto and Uranus, the major theme for these few years. There might be a breakthrough or unexpected turn of events which might shake the leader's vision for the future.

Aspects among the rest of the planets

There is an important exact aspect of note among outer planets for this Moon month, trine between Saturn and Neptune. It might coincides with gradual emotional shift in organizational structure which supports new and improved way and undermine old persistent established form. In the next Moon month, Jupiter will join with these two making grand trine on 7/18-19. The influence of the square between Uranus and Pluto, exact on 5/21, will be felt strongly as the Sun translates those energy into consciousness around 7/2-4. Power of individual should be more respected in the organizational operation, and ways to reflect those points in the system would be sought after earnestly.

The first inner planet to track is Venus, which touched Neptune and Saturn before the New Moon on 6/7-8. We have talked about "the effort to make the idealistic value real is to be made, and cooperation for that purpose will be formed". After the New Moon, it touches Pluto and Uranus on 6/12-13 and the cooperation or the newly acquired value is challenged to express its uniqueness. Idealism will be formed around 6/21 when Venus touches Mercury. It is interesting to note that around that time, the Sun conjoins with Jupiter which has mediated the two planets at the end of the last month. Venus goes on to ingress into Leo on 6/28, and then touches Saturn on 7/2. Venus might enthusiastically attracts partner for new cooperation after entering Leo, which leads to meeting with responsibility (incidentally, this coincides with leader's facing unexpected turn of events talked above). Then Venus will touch Uranus on 7/8, new way to proceed partnership might be found.

Next let's look at what Mercury is up to. Before the New Moon, Mercury is busy coordinating between outer social planets right up to the timing of the New Moon. Mercury touched Neptune, Saturn and Pluto and right after the New Moon, it touches Uranus to complete the series of errands. Then on 6/21, as talked above, Mercury touches with Venus, second time in about a month to remind the idealism formed one month ago, before turning retrograde on 6/26. So these might become a re-checking of idealism conceived around the end of May. Since it leads to retrograde, re-checking might find some points to ponder during the retrograde period. After that, Mercury is inactive until the next New Moon.

Next, let us talk about Mars, the action department. Right before the New Moon on 6/8 Mars touched Neptune, after a long period of not touching other planets. We described this as "seeking and seeking and finally Mars finds some phantom target". After the New Moon, Mars touches Uranus on 6/18, which is the only major aspect Mars makes within this month except for with Moon. Let's not become too anxious about various ways to get things done. Although it is good thing to think about feelings of other people, thinking too much might thwart the energy itself. A reasonable blend might be found when Mars touches Uranus.

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, Mercury and Saturn change its direction. Mercury starts its retrograde motion on 6/26. Mercury has the theme of intelligence and communication, so while it is retrograding, it tends to become difficult to share ideas causing misunderstanding. But it is good for people to utilize intelligence for their own sake reflecting the past, etc., and when Mercury restored let us share what has come up during the retrograde period, which continues until 7/21. Saturn starts its retrograde on 7/8. Saturn is the sense of structure people share in common, rules or organizational goal. So around the date which Saturn changes its direction, those theme will be emphasized in society or course of life events. While Saturn is retrograding, people will tend to think about themselves first concerning Saturn's themes which might lead to misunderstanding or mis-regarding of sense of structure or order with each other. But it is nice period to reflect and reorganize what's necessary in society in terms of the individual.

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 only planet among the planets which travel slower than the earth that changes its sign is Jupiter. Jupiter changes its sign from Gemini to Cancer on 6/26. While in Gemini people tend to feel rewarded through being experimental, curious to look around and find possibilities. After coming into Cancer, people start to look more for collective safety and mutual understanding of feelings.

During this Moon month, keeping the points I have raised above, let's try to utilize our Gemini Sun's energy to diversify and communicate with specific opponents. It should be interesting to observe those symbols reflected in the real socio-situations in the world.
