New Moon – March 6th 2019

March 4th – 5th saw the reaching of the center of the middle column in Dreamspell. This year, the energy of the center and the portal days that follow are in alignment with the newmoon – full moon – and the equinox.

Therefore I like to take a look on the energies in kind of blending them together.

On March 6th the new moon takes place between 15 – 16 degrees Pisces. The horoscope also  shows a Uranus at 0 degree Taurus. Uranus entered Taurus in the past days and it is there to stay. Pluto and the southern node start to approach each other, slowly joined by Saturn.  All of them are in an orb of 4 degree, with Pluto in half—sum of the distance Saturn-Node. So it starts to act as a Transfer of light aspect,  as a stellium of planets with a wider range, but close together therefore connected through one or more planets on the “inner” is called in astrology.

The New Moon is on Kin 132, the yellow lunar human. The lunar tone, in the middle of the Dreamspell, refers to the polarity and of the duality of opposing forces, a human may find itself in, while being in the middle of the cosmic in- and outbreath of energies.
 This human itself in the middle of this flow  is the focus of the Sabian Symbol of this new moon:

PHASE 346 (PISCES 16°):IN THE QUIET OF HIS STUDY A CREATIVE INDIVIDUAL EXPERIENCES A FLOW OF INSPIRATION.

KEYNOTE: Reliance upon one’s inner source of inspiration or guidance.

In this last scene of the great ritual of cyclic existence we are dealing with various aspects of the process that enables man to „con-firm,“ formulate and perpetuate the original creative impulse which has become self-actualized in a myriad of ways throughout the cycle, short or long as the cycle may be. This first symbol strikes the keynote of truly significant creative processes: their source is above, beyond, but also around the individual creator. The inspiration, original and individual though it may be, is given a form which is conditioned by the cultural, social and religious background of the creative person. In a sense, every genius merely records an answer to the needs of his time. The hands that write, play an instrument, or mold a plastic material are his own; the urge or drive back of the flow of inspiration has arisen in the vast collective mind of Man.


The individual aspect of the creative process is emphasized as is the individual’s need for concentration and at least inner quiet. He must have faith in his own SUBJECTIVE STRENGTH.

The task is set, as this creative flow from the cosmic center pours into the collective and the individual.  Yet, how it can be set into motion on this collective and individual level can be seen through the horoscope.

The New moon is calculated for Europe in Universal Time / GMT.

The collective view:
Europe sees this New moon in the 7th house of partners, close to sunset. Neptun and retrograde Mercury are joining as well as Chiron, that entered the Aries sign. For Europe this may mean, that right now may be the right time to evaluate negotiations and decisions, it may even be a good time to turn all negotiations around in making other decisions. With Neptun as the ruler of the oceans, it may also indicate illusions or veiled issues regarding the oceans or the borders that are around the countries. Some issues may dissolve into nothing, while others may need really be taken care of. My inner raises the question of Trade (mercury) tax boundaries, shipping agreements, ferry regulations, so the issues regarding “meeting each other and getting in contact with each other through trade”  not really worked through. Also, even if it was not mentioned in the public or tabloid papers, I guess that crude oil and gaz is a  remaining unsolved issue.

Also on the collective we see now Uranus in Taurus. Taurus, in short, is a symbol for self worth, abundance and ressources. Values and Value systems. The Bull itself as a symbol rules the stock markets all over the world. Taurus is fix earth, so rock solid. Uranus entering Taurus means, that the rock solid earth is shaken, literally as well as symbolically. Uranus in Taurus to this moon may indicate, that the individual has to find the ressources (Taurus) that are lying in the individual creataivity (Uranus). For the whole 7 years of Uranus in Taurus, it may mean, that the Kundalini rising process in the body now has to  emerge in a cleansed throat chakra (Taurus) – in a new sound therefore as well as a new expression ofcreativity, while the rock solid soil that used to carry the self worth may be challenged.

With Pluto in Capricorn, this “rock shaking” aspect is exponentiated, as the hidden longing of Capricorn of loss of control is met with a transformation up to the very core of the issue. Pluto is shaving through each onion layer structure an individual as well as earth has erected.

Where Uranus is challenging the layers of abundance and ressources, we may experience a re-evaluation of ressources one Earth as a whole as well as our creative abilities in the individual.

with Pluto in Capricorn we may see the shredding of the structure, a collective has given itself. Shredding the structure while at the same time there is a loss of control ( value) of ressources may turn societies and economies upside down. This may come to a deeper layer after  Saturn faced the southern nodes and joins Pluto (January 2020).

This is at its best an incredible chance for new technologies (Uranus) that are life sustaining, while at the same time old ressources like crude oil may no longer be of value. Old forms to create electricity (Pluto – Atomic power – Uranus – Electricity) have to be overcome in order to make it through this necessary loss of value / loss of ressources. this re-evaluation also takes place in the individual, from the energy level an individual body is adapting to as well as the self-value and the expression of each of the inner flows of abilities. If the structure of the own life is not fitting this flow of inspiration, leading to the expression of the creativity, it will be crushed on the inner as well as on the outer. The shells will be cracked.

For Europe, all planets are on the right side of the Horoscope, this indicates a harvesting time. What is emerging now is the outcome of various processes that took place in other times.

This is to nation and individual  a time, where the “flow of inspiration” may lead to rich fruits if placed well in alignment with the needs of Earth, and the needs of life itself.

Full Moon 19-02-19 / 19th February 2019

On 19th February, 15.53 GMT, a full moon occurs.

If you remember the energy of the new moon( two weeks ago (my article: ) , the Sabian Symbol was “a businessman at his desk”… referring to our culture and that whatever we are gaining should also contribute Earth. Since that, there were remarkable two weeks, starting from a a Starbucks CEO billionaire, saying he is rather a person of means, to an Amazon CEO blackmailed, to Amazon withdrawing – or forced to withdraw – from New York. From a tantrum(p)ing US President (businessman) declaring national emergency for not being able to organize money to build a wall around the country he lives in.  If you remember the eclipse energies (http://blog.sternenfarben.de/2019/01/20/the-energies-of-the-total-lunar-eclipse-from-20-21st-january-2019/) , you may remember, that it was about ego-driven people, men which the blood rushes to their head. With this in mind, one may see that a lot of challenging aspects still active, in fact increasing in tension and expression.

The last Sabian symbol spoke about the need to do something for Earth, not to just do business, while at the same time the spiritual world is not necessarily about the glamor it is spreading, but on a life lived by a greater purpose for the common, higher ood.
So we saw also another rising of a climate change activity, this time from children – or newcomers, like the women freshly elected into the US Congress.

This time the full moon’s Sabian Symbol is between 0-1 degree Virgo – and the Sabian Symbols  (quoted at the end of the article) refers again to markets, merchandising, commerce, to social interaction – and spiritual awareness of our interconnectedness. The symbols speak of portraying one self in a current situation but also in the interaction with others, harvesting what one has sewn (or standing on an empty field of misharvest). With the energy of the eclipse still so present, I think it is quite obvious, that the challenging aspects, of what may happen to groups or markets, are at the focus therefore.

It is a strange impulse that the energy of the moons are setting here. The eclipse in January setting an emphasis on the American presidency with a man having a blood-rush to this head, then the “business man”, now to another situation of “trade”. Whatever we started in this energy, it seems that the cosmos wants us to look deeply behind the scenes of what we call business. And to be prepared that interconnectedness may mean all situations of life on Earth.
Therefore I would like to do again what I started in the last article,  to look at three different charts in a matter of World-Trade and with an economic view.

I calculated the horoscope of the full moon for New York, London and for Hongkong, in order to show three aspects in the financial and business world of today, and the differences visible.

New York

The full moon occurs around noon local time, with Sun and Lilith at the highest place in the sky. Saturn and Venus are located in the 8th house, which shows an emphasis on debt, on money from other sources than the own. Money (Venus) that has to do with hardship or walls (Saturn),with a structure (Saturn). But in the 8th house, the house of death, it is not the own resource. The second house of own ressoures shows Gemini as ruler, but an empty house  The ruler of the 2nd house of the own talents and ressources is in the 10th/11th housecusp, with neptun. Oil and Gaz are the ressources that would be available, the ocean is a resource, the water in itself too. The ruler of the 8th house, Jupiter (for Sagittarious) is in the 7th – it has to do with loyalty, friendship, partnership – or –to be precise as it shows in the world, of the breaking of friendships, loyalties and partnerships due to it (Jupiter in a wide square to Mercury Neptun). The natural ruler of the second house, Taurus, is closed in the 12th. Uranus and Mars in it. They rather talk on war technology, media, wars than on the abundance of a green meadow. It is a deeply energized chart, that has a lot of “hidden” or veiled attributes. Mercury to Neptun is rather hidden communication, veiled words, Saturn and Venus in th e8th with a strong Saturn in the own sign of Capricorn, and a venus that shall follow that in manifesting money. Yet what my eyes are also fascinated by is Pluto southern  node. Fate plays a part in here, Atomic power (Pluto) also. The past is present. What seems to be a power play of the current day is in fact an old game, coming from an other era. or refreshing the dangers of an other era (broken contracts – INF nuclear treaty).

All planets are above the horizon, no matter how hidden or veiled, all is conscious and aware.

Hongkong:

If you look at the chart calculated for Hongkong, you may notice, it is just the other way round as in New York. As above (new York) so below (China) Whatever New York and therefore the USA tries to accomplish, china has it. Saturn and Venus are in the 2nd house, also Jupiter.  So the Planets that have to do with the urgency of the USA issues reside here more or less relaxed. With Scorpio rising, even the Pluto question is answered, as a power quest from ancient times. At the Munic Security Conference this weekend, Angela Merkel told the audience, that china was 1700 years the ruler of the world trade. it was only the past 300 years that this rulership was taken by Europe, America and then America and Europe. But they are rising just to their old place. Which can be seen here. There is no planet in the 8th house, no need for other currency. They have all the ressources for themselves (2nd house). If a partner or someone that tries to engage, approaches, they react with Taurus – Venus in the 2nd house in a strong connection to Saturn in its own sign. It seems, that whatever America is struggling, all is settled here.  Whatever was above the horizon in New York, here it is below the horizon, it is an inner abundance, but also a kind of unconsciousness about it. An inner sleep of the themes so far.

London:

… has very different themes like New York and Hongong. Here we see a Leo Ascendent with the sun in the 7th house, joined by Lilith. The fight for independence visible as Lilith may represdeent the Brexit – no deal exit from EU. the 8th house is ful, it is also about the ressources of others, or a lot of hidden aspects tht are bringing debt (other peoples money). Veils, unclarity (neptun) in Contracts (mercury). Spoken word may not be trusted. Chiron joins, displaying that this theme may be a real wound emerging. the 2nd house is as empty as it is in the US, the ruler Mercury is in the Neptun conjunction in the 8th house. At the MC one sees the maars/Uranus conjunction- the fight or independence, the firght in the media, the war for freedom, even maybe a lurking trade war visible.
The ressources, seeked by USA, available in China, can only be seen as a possibility through everyday hard work (6th house) or as possible health threats-Saturn may give a long life, or an illness that is rigid in nature, stiffening body or emotions. it will be a lost power on work (southern node – Pluto). Britain wants to remember long forgotten power it once had in its worker mentality. but Pluto shows, it is the past, not the here and now. One of the main news of the past days was the insolvence claim of a British airline, that just stopped to facilitate its flights due to Brexit uncertainty. The fight for independence shows rather in an inability to work (hard) in the way one once knew. E


Summary:
The focus the cosmos is setting, is only on the surface just regarding trade and economy. The symbols show rather that both sides of the story belong to spirituality, and at this time, there could be real spiritual life on Earth, with spiritual economy as well as a grounded spirituality in every day action. Thus both showing in coooperation and in a life-sustaining trade of pruducts harvested together.
Yet with the eclipse energy showing so clearly in the past days, there is a deep concern for Earth, and the emphasis lies on cooperation, which humanity lacks at this point in time. The emphasis on the surface is on the portrait of a man, or on the business leader, on role or on image, while the symbols themselves urge for fulfilling the promise lying in these roles – a life lifed for the wellbeing of alland in coopertion.
It will be an interesting time coming.

The Sabian Symbols of this full moon:

Moon:
PHASE 151 (VIRGO 1°):
IN A PORTRAIT, THE SIGNIFICANT FEATURES OF A MAN’S HEAD ARE ARTISTICALLY EMPHASIZED.

KEYNOTE: The capacity to picture to oneself clearly the salient features and the overall meaning of any life situation.

During the two preceding Scenes the „feel“ of energy at work has been the dominant feature of a consciousness still strongly ego-centered yet at times eagerly and devotionally reaching up to a realization of divine or cosmic order. Now we have come in the seasonal cycle of the year to the sign Virgo. It is in a sense the symbol of harvesting, but it is also that of the Path of discipleship, and of all strongly determined processes of training, or retraining. Flooded with and having enjoyed and released energy, the personalized consciousness now has to learn the lesson of significant form. It must be able to see life situations as wholes of experience, and to discover their meaning by distinguishing their most characteristic features.

This is the first stage of the thirty-first five-fold sequence of symbols and its Keyword is DISCRIMINATION. Implied in discrimination is both analysis and intuition. The mind separates and identifies — and unfortunately often exaggerates — what makes a person or a situation different from another; but the intuitive responses of the whole person to what confronts him or her is also essential, for what matters is not only my or your „difference,“ but the place and function this difference occupies in the organic pattern of the evolution of „humanity as a whole,“ i.e. of Man.

Sun:
PHASE 331 (PISCES 0-1°): IN A CROWDED MARKETPLACE FARMERS AND MIDDLEMEN DISPLAY A GREAT VARIETY OF PRODUCTS.

KEYNOTE: The process of commingling and interchange which at all levels demonstrates the health of a community.

In any twelve-fold division of a complete cycle (for instance the 12 zodiacal signs and the 12 Houses of a birth chart) the twelfth section often has been given a negative significance. It can refer to oppressive conditions as it represents a „closing of accounts,“ a final evaluation of the harvest of the cycle. A very bad harvest may lead to bankruptcy; a premature revolt may bring the rebel to jail; the dissolute may end in a hospital. In this section of the cycle a man reaps what he has sown. But it may also be honors, social prestige, the interests of well-managed wealth. In this twenty-fourth scene what is stressed is the coming together, in a final experience of community, of all factors previously experienced; this means constructive interaction and an interchange of the products of social activity. In a practical sense, the symbol, whenever it is found, emphasizes that the time has come to take full advantage of the social opportunities to bargain and to trade.

This is the first stage of the process related to the sixty-seventh five-fold sequence of symbols. It refers to all that can be gained from social interplay and especially, in the broadest sense of the word, from COMMERCE.
