* SAG New Moon (Dec 11) with ‘Entourage’ – OpportUnity in the Turbulence, and a New Way of Living *

11 Dec

Lots of transitions, movements, charged energy – can you feel it?

How have you been navigating in the currents, since the last Full Moon, and SATURN – NEPTUNE square (exact on Nov 26, one of the main influences at the end of 2015, and we’ll see more of it in Spring and Summer 2016)?

Let’s acknowledge that the old ways and beliefs (SATURN in SAG) aren’t a reliable compass or planning tool anymore, in a world that is so fluid and interconnected (NEPTUNE in PI). The SAG SUN has passed SATURN (a yearly event) on Nov 29, and since then a lot could have opened up and released into a wider perspective.
Breaking News:

MARS in LIBRA opposite URANUS in ARIES today Dec 10 links into the T-Square with PLUTO in CAP which we will see until end of Jan 2016 (with LILITH replacing MARS by then – Nature IS about balance).

Maybe you have experienced a dilemma between autonomy / responding to the call of the moment (AR), and honouring agreements (LI)?

Maybe  you were reminded of traumatic events from 2012 – Spring 2015 (when URANUS and PLUTO squared up 7 times)?

Maybe you literally had disruptive sleep recently?

In any case, this combo is a wake-up call to pursue balance and harmony, fairness and right relationship.

Maybe something in your life has gotten out of proportion, and very imbalanced? Maybe your body shows you which side (right – masculine, left – feminine) is ‘overstretched’.


Earth & Moon

Globally, this is a huge wake-up call (together with MARS square PLUTO on Dec 6), to do something urgent and important of long term impact together NOW.

Naturally, COP 21 in Paris which comes to a conclusion today is linked into this alignment.

While the negotiators in session discuss agreements (MARS in LI) people in the street stand up for more radical solutions – UR in AR (with police interventions… more PLU in CAP).

May MARS in LI (followed and backed-up by LILITH!) kick the negotiators at the COP negotiations into right action, to find not only agreement, but win-win synergies and partnership in implementing what will be decided – which isn’t an easy job yet should be a mandatory priority (CAP), in my opinion.

Powerful images from Space http://www.cop21.gouv.fr/en/message-de-la-station-spatiale-internationale-ne-laissez-pas-passer-cette-occasion/ – Astronauts send an urging message to the COP negotiators, not to let this opportunity (which could be our last) pass, to do everything to protect our fragile Earth atmosphere, and help Planet Earth to support life. One Earth, One Chance…


Quite a lot  going on in the AstroSphere, that the upcoming SAG New Moon catalyzes:

– Cardinal T-Square to PLUTO in CAP – will continue throughout January.

– Mutable T-Square from the Lunar Nodes to SAG NEW MOON as Apex!

– SAG SUN and MOON in Fire Trine with URANUS in AR.

– VENUS in SCO trine NEPTUNE in PI.

What a ‘turbulent’ New Moon energy (and literally storm after storm here on the West Coast) – what a World-in-Change!

If you follow my FB page posts, came to our groups, or looked up the alignments yourself, you would have noticed the Cardinal T-Square that has been in action over the last week, with MARS in LI, first squaring PLUTO in CAP on Dec 6, and then opposing URANUS retro / stationary in AR today Dec 10.
MARS in LI re-charges the epochal URANUS – PLUTO Square that we experienced from 2012 – 2015 (7 exact alignments). We all need to BE the warriors of Peace, Balance, Fairness. These themes get our mojo going, and shall motivate us to make responsible new choices and new alliances with others, for the greater good of All.

What could bring more balance and harmony into your life – that would likely benefit everyone around you too?

The destructive, unsustainable ways of how the colonial, industrial world and life style have been treating resources (intensely brought to light during the PLUTO in CAP years, 2008 – 2023) has to radically change. Innovative, revolutionary new beginnings (UR in AR, since 2011, until 2018) are pressing up against the outdated, oppressive, abusive old ‘operating systems’.

A video gift came from my friend M. after our Pluto Biography meeting (a group of us has been meeting every 2 – 3 weeks, to explore the process with Pluto in our lives) on Monday. I feel compelled to share with you – well worth watching. I learned a lot about indigenous culture and the notion for decolonization.

M. says, “I am attaching a video of a presentation by Mohawk leader Taiake Alfred. Taiake is a professor at UVic. When Melanie spoke of decolonization, I recalled this powerful video and how, when I watched it, I realized that the collective decolonization process of an oppressed community or nation is the same as the internal process of an individual’s awakening and becoming whole (individuation).

The cardinal T-square to PLUTO that brings now the URANUS – PLUTO square (from 2012 – Spring 2015) back will continue throughout January 2016!
Why? It will get activated by MERCURY which will meet PLUTO 3 times, plus LILITH in LI will also step in.

Here is the SAG New Moon chart, with this cardinal T-square to PLUTO, and all else that shows up with the New Moon.

The SAG New Moon will be exact on Fri Dec 11 at 2:29 am PST.

SAG NM 2015 

  • Mutable T-Square forming on Dec 9, 11, and 18, with SAG NEW MOON as Apex!

Yep, the SAG New Moon also serves as an outlet for the tension between JUPITER / North Node in VI, and CHIRON / South Node in PI.

The Nodal axis calls for an energetic ‘outbreath’ of used-up, low grade PI / CHIRON energy:
‘Going under’ in the ‘ocean of overwhelm’, feeling energetically too open and sensitive, picking a lot up (without being able to release it), weak and victimized, using addiction as escapism…

And an ‘in breath’ from VI with JUPITER: Clearing, discerning, organizing, cleaning up the mess, offering service where one could otherwise be overwhelmed through passive empathy.

The New Moon in SAG asks: Where can this go? What makes most sense here? Accessing the heart of wisdom.
More about it below, in the discussion of the Sabian Symbol…

The Mutable T-Square affects you strongly if your birthday is this or next week, or mid-March, June, or Sept., or if you have the Moon or planets in mid to late GEM, VI, SAG, or PI.


  • SAG SUN and MOON in Fire Trine with URANUS in AR (exact Dec 8 & 10).

Well, yeah, the SAG New Moon also receives support from UR in fiery ARIES. UR is presently a focal point also, since it’s getting ready for its ‘U-Turn’ from retro to direct, on Christmas Day(!). Let’s try out something new altogether, come from innocent courage, and shoot from the heart! Which might mean: change course to stay authentic. Be in the NOW.
I’ve been experiencing lots of those refreshing impulses yesterday already, since the MOON entered SAG.


  • VENUS in SCO trine NEPTUNE in PI – exact today, Dec 10.

A beautiful opportunity, to dive into deeper spaces that are usually hidden, covered, repressed, or maybe too painful and shameful to face, to find the love in those ‘ugly places’, and discover the unifying force that is… all that is.



* Sabian Symbol: A New Way of Living

The New Moon will fall on 19°02 SAG – so let’s look at the Sabian ‘oracle’ for 19° (rather than at the next degree, as usually done):



Pelican with Young (Spot Billed)

Spot-billed Pelican with Chicks (from Wiki)



The need for people concerned with the future to discover a new way of living and more wholesome surroundings.

The evident reason for using ‘pelicans’ at this stage of the cyclic process is that tradition tells us that these birds are so concerned with their young that they give their own blood and flesh to feed their progeny. Whether this is fact or symbol, the meaning of this picture refers to a situation  that lately has acquired great urgency. Our technological society is polluting not only our global environment, but the mind and feeling-responses of new generations as well. The search for a new way of life is seen by many people to be imperative.

In this … symbol we are told that humanity’s survival has become a matter of extreme importance. Whole animal species may be destroyed by our civilization; mankind itself is in danger. Going to distant planets is hardly the answer. A generation may have to sacrifice itself for the sake of its descendants.”


Wow – this interpretation of the Sabian Symbols, written by Dane Rudhyar, was published in 1973 – 42 years ago!
Very prophetic and oh so relevant now, esp. with the refugee crisis, and the timeliness of the New Moon at the conclusion of the Climate Conference in Paris (COP). The symbol actually shows us how the refugees fleeing from a war zone, and the notion for the industrialized world to get out of a destructive obsession have things in common.

Indeed, we need to discover (SAG) and (since alternatives are already available) even more so, implement (CAP):
A New Way of Living.
