April 19th, 2013
Scorpio is the sign of the Zodiac where we relate to others on a deeper level. All the people we meet and deal with on a daily basis are not necessarily long term commitments. What happens is we get manipulated or we manipulate and get caught up in obligations that we didn't expect. In Scorpio we need to set good boundaries or we will find ourselves in situations that we do not want. Saturn in Scorpio now, for the first time since 1983 through 1986, is holding us accountable for what we have allowed to happen over the years. Where have you lacked good boundaries? If you have set good boundaries, honored your commitments to others, paid your bills on time Saturn will be giving you rewards now. It is a good time to look over your assets and your debts and make adjustments if necessary. This is not only with money it is also emotional assets and debts.
A Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse will occur on April 25th at 3:57 pm EDT at 5 degrees Scorpio 46 minutes.
The fixed signs Taurus and Scorpio are dominating this Lunar Eclipse. It is all about power, money, and the economy. Mars and Pluto are the rulers of Scorpio, Mars is in Taurus joined with the Sun. It is time to build something tangible into our lives. Mars and the Sun are trine (favorable) to Pluto in Capricorn. This gives Mars the cooperation and support for taking care of what we have. This Full Moon is joined with Saturn and Saturn is in opposition to Mars and the Sun in Taurus. Everything we are taking on now requires patience. Saturn is in Scorpio in mutual reception with Pluto in Capricorn. There is cooperation but you must have good credit. This lunation is holding us accountable. It is time to have your feet on the ground. Mercury is in Aries giving you a proactive attitude to what you are trying to get in control.
The Sign Scorpio is one of the most powerful signs, because people with this sign have a strong will and determination to accomplish whatever they attempt to do. Their analytical minds, strong intuition, reasoning powers, perception, and long range planning ability, magnetism, and energy are assurances of success. Where you have this sign in your chart is where you need to merge with others. This sign has the power to control and has a need to delve deeply. Eruption of repressed emotions causes healing and cleansing. Scorpio rules credit cards and borrowed money. This month will emphasize our finances. Are we in control of our money, or does it control us? Are we a slave to our bills?
A dwad is a 2 ½ degree section of a sign. Each sign is divided into twelve sections. Each section takes on the nature of one of the twelve signs. This Lunar Eclipse at 5 degrees 46 minutes of Scorpio is the Capricorn dwad. This brings the qualities of Capricorn into play and also Saturn as a co-ruler. Saturn is in Scorpio influencing this Lunar Eclipse. Capricorn is the sign of social responsibility. It is where you build your foundations in the outside world. What mark will you make? What will you contribute? Capricorn describes the need to define your social territory and to find security. Its house describes where you are territory-conscious and where you need to feel secure. Here, you need respect, recognition, and approval from the outside world. The responsibilities and limitations encountered in this area of your life involve finding a responsible social place and establishing security. The challenge for this house in your chart is perseverance and hard work. While things may not come easily here, efforts will be rewarded, if your energies are channeled constructively. Patience is necessary.
This Lunar Eclipse at 5 degrees Scorpio joined with Saturn and opposing Mars and the Sun in Taurus is bringing to our attention the need for discipline. What you need to do and what you want to accomplish requires patience, discipline, focus and work. Anything that comes up now is an opportunity to show what you can do. Even if it is something that needs cleaning up before you can move forward and accomplish new things. Discipline pays off now. In some cases it may be a reversal of roles. Where you have been in control you may have to let go. Where you haven't been in control you may be put into control. It is all about awareness and what kind of cooperation you need to get to accomplish things now. It is important. Basic survival skills may be emphasized down to how you take care of yourself. How do you sabotage yourself by giving into weaknesses? It is time to take control over your desires and direct them in a positive way.
THE SABIAN SYMBOL: A GOLD RUSH.
This is a symbol of the exploitation of natural resources through personal initiative or intelligence, and of every individual's essential independence of commonplace limitations or superficial inadequacies of life. There are always high rewards awaiting any genuine enterprise, and as a man dramatizes the opportunities of the world at large he is able to improve his own immediate condition in all possible directions. Human skills are forever challenged to their own good fortune. The keyword is AMBITION. When positive, the degree is instinctive self-dedication to the unseen potentials of everyday existence, and when negative, a lack of practical discrimination and an irresistible desire for easy money. “Sabian Symbols” Marc Edmund Jones.
