The meeting of Sun and Moon occurs at 9:47 AM PST of the 11th at precisely 19 degrees Scorpio, trine Chiron, widely conjunct Mercury, and sextile Jupiter, along with the latter forming the base of a Finger of God with apex Uranus. When we consider the New Moon location in Scorpio, conjoined Mercury and contacting Chiron, we may conclude this Moon will bring change, a process of dissolution, a transformation (that is, energies taken from one distinct state to another), or resurrection that either represents a healing itself or that offers healing to some related matter, with emotional and mental effects as well (Merc + the Water placements). When we add the Finger, we see that a factor of knowledge or belief (Jupiter) may spark the new start or new way of thinking (the ‘newness’ that is part of any New Moon) and result in something both personal, ‘I’ directed (Aries) and radical, unusual, or original (Uranus), at least in terms of the usual for each individual. In many cases, it may be that acquiring new information sets some inevitable decay or Scorpionic process in motion, and the only response we can have is to ‘be ourselves’, or, possibly, to find shelter within some like-minded group (Uranus in Aries).

The Sabian Symbol for this Sun-Moon must be read with care; as it falls exactly on the degree, we read that degree, not the next one as we usually would with a degree + minutes placement. This is in keeping with the practice described by Dane Rudhyar in ‘The Astrology of Personality’, where he says, “Any fraction of a degree is to be considered as a whole degree. Aries 15 deg 0′ is to be read as Aries 15; but Aries 15 deg 1′, as well as Aries 15 deg 59′, represent Aries 16. The symbols are the expression of a span of activity, a cycle, the significance of which is released at once, the moment it begins.”

This time it’s, ‘A Parrot Repeats The Conversation He Has Overheard’. Again, this brings forward that Jupiterian idea of information, knowledge revealed, with the idea that it may be repeated without real understanding–and this suggests that the way in which we get this knowledge, or the bringer or broadcaster of the info, will not be aware of just what is being passed on, what is being revealed. Whatever that is, it is instrumental in initiating the Scorpionic change that offers healing, and to which we react in a very particular, highly individual way. Through the agency of passed on information, belief, or knowledge we see change put in motion, change that rests on a kind of discovery we make that causes us to react very much in character, with responses rising from that most unique part of ourselves.
