New Moon November 2013

This month's New Moon occurs on November 3, 2013, 21:49 JST (all the timing in this carticle is to be calculated in JST) at the 12th degree of Scorpio. Since last year, we are thinking about degree meanings with Sabian symbols as hints. The symbol of the New Moon degree is "an embassy ball". 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 12th degree of Scorpio, where the New Moon this month is, belongs to the second decan of the sign, first half of the decan and 2nd of the 5 degree section. Let us code this as "Scorpio 2-1-2" 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 Libra's developing ability of developing objectivity. 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, establishing the basis of what is learned in the first half onto which we continue to build the experience in j 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 former half of the second section of Scorpio, this is the symbol "a drowning man rescued"), is to simply observe the theme of the area. The Scorpio's function of digging into deep water in order to gain insight is symbolized by the rescued man who after all had to depend on rescuer's ability and strong emotion to save life. Point here is that the focus is the proactiveness of the rescued man, or his after the fact awareness of rescuer's special ability/emotion to be agitated, symbolized by the FORMER HALF (action) of the 2nd decan of the sign Scorpio. The second step is what happens inside of the rescuer when received the energy of first movement. Be aware of the object the first step is running after. "an embassy ball", which is the theme degree for this month, is what is happening inside the rescuer's mind whose energy is drawn out by the man who needs rescue, becoming important people who are invited to the event ready to offer his/her insight to who needs it. Then the third step is accumulation of the observations and their understandings. The symbol "an inventor experimenting" implies the importance of being aware of the container of the energy (in this case, laboratory) in which the inventor keeps trying his insight to serve some purpose. When on 4th step, with the image of "telephone linemen at work" we are focusing on the container (in this case, pile of inventions in the laboratory) talked above is endeavored to be grown and function as a practical environment in which insight is shared and communicated. The theme of the 5 degree area thus refined with discipline here on this 4th degree. The fifth step is the creative output of this five degree area. The image of "children playing around five mounds of sand" in this context is that we dramatize the container in which we utilize our insight to help living a life easier. We became aware of meaning of insight we have acquired in order to improve the society, which grows within children's mind while we let children play around the sand. 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, which is an eclipse, by the way, was on 11/2-3 when the Sun touched Pluto, Mercury and Mars. This Pluto which the Sun has touched has just had exact aspect with Uranus on 11/1 and has become the focus of the period. Since the retrograding Mercury has already touched Saturn and brought its theme to the eclipse, the cluster suggests re-organizing the long range plan or ideas with the insight deepen with Scorpio motive. Interesting phenomena in the same line is that there seems to be many talks about poor but satisfying life style under the keyword "Pua-ju". After the New Moon, the Sun will touch Saturn on 11/6 and then Jupiter on 11/13, the leadership trying to establish a structure will meet with various visions. After touching Jupiter, the Sun ingresses into Sagittarius (11/22) and get in touch with Neptune on 11/25. In this period, multiple visions will be fused into ideal image. Then the Sun will touch Uranus on 12/1, and leaders might pick a hint to put those ideals into practical usage which is one step beyond norm.

Aspects among the rest of the planets

There are no important exact aspect of note among outer planets for this Moon month, but the impact of square between Uranus and Pluto on 11/1 will be kept on being felt. The two planets have been square for some time and the aspect is the fourth of the seven series of contact(the last will occur in March 2015). Collective perspective of expression of each individuality has been changing gradually. Cultural norm which works against Individual growth is reflected and become subject of improvement.

The first inner planet to track is Mars, the action department, which has already touched Pluto, Mercury and the Sun right before the New Moon. Long range plans are reorganized and renewed, and freshly put into action. And with Pluto influence of long term perspective, Mars has unrelenting attitude when putting those plans into action. Mars then touches Saturn on 11/9 and Jupiter on 11/19. Action will be shared with organization, at first by structure and then philosophy-wise.

Next let's look at what Mercury is up to. Right before the New Moon, retrograding Mercury has touched Saturn, Mars, Sun and Pluto and become the main force to reorganize the long range plans (we have talked about the last month that this eclipse occurs with Mercury right on the node! This might make the plan of long term importance.). After the New Moon Mercury will touch Venus and Neptune on 11/8 to 11/12. Actually, Mercury will turn direct on 11/11, so it touches Neptune twice around that day. These days are colored with idealism, pink glasses! Then Mercury will go back to Pluto on 11/21, final confirmation of long term direction, and touches Saturn, Venus and Jupiter from 11/26 to 28 to reflect and share the points with organizational activity.

Next, let us talk about Venus. After the New Moon, Venus will go into Capricorn and touch Mercury and Neptune on 11/8 to dream about perfect cooperation for the plan. Then it touches Uranus and Pluto on 11/15 to 16, and fresh and deeply committed cooperation could be formed and some attractive sensitivity or sense of beauty might be expressed and emitted to society. On 11/24, Venus will touch Saturn and cooperation takes on seriousness. And then on 11/28, Venus touches Mercury and Jupiter and cooperation spirit will be spread and communicated well.

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, three planets change their direction namely, Jupiter, Mercury and Neptune. Jupiter is associated with large scale communication, function of mind which grasp situation as a whole or things in general, vision for the future, etc. So around the time Jupiter changes its direction, 11/7, those things might be felt strongly and come up to front. Mercury is associated with communication, function of mind which track information or movement, etc. So around the time Mercury changes its direction, 11/11, those things might be felt strongly and come up to front. While Mercury is retrograding, awareness of people tend to direct toward inside which causes miscommunication to occur. But this is nice time to reflect on each own thoughts. Neptune will go direct on 11/14, and idealism, dream, imagery, those things related with Neptune will be emphasized around that day.

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, no planet among the planets which travel slower than the earth changes its sign.

During this Moon month, keeping the points I have raised above, let's try to utilize our Scorpio Sun's energy to dig into selected subjects to get insight to improve individual relationships which leads to revitalizing the society. It should be interesting to observe those symbols reflected in the real socio-situations in the world.
