CHART OF THE NEW
Late Sunday morning the New Moon occurs at 17 Sagittarius 16. It will be
exact at 12:39 PM EST, 11:39 PM CST, 10:39 PM MST and 9:39 PM PST.
Sagittarius is a sign of far reaching implications. It is a time when
opportunities may be milked, when contracts can be finalized, when
finances may be paid. This can be a time of travel, of great wisdom or
insight. A path to the future is about to unfold. This is a time during
which the door is opened, when the stepping stones are there; but this
opportunity will not last forever. Like the arrow, the fame or
advantages of the Sagittarian are fleeting. like the gallop of the
centaurs across the frosty grasses on a late fall morning. It can all
happen quickly, and we can miss it if you're not paying attention. Last
September, Rosh Hashanna was a time to 'get ourselves right' in relation
to each other in society. During Sagittarius it is a time for us to get
right before God. What are you doing here with your time, with your
life? What are your aspirations? What plans are you now making for how
you propose to get there?
Inquiring minds want to know.
From Anne Wright's marvelous site 'Fixed Stars' on the WEB we learn:
Zeta 2 Scorpii

This is not the Grafias listed in Vivian Robson's book. The
Grafias referred to in Robson's book and other texts is said to be
misnamed and should be called
(Beta Scorpio, now at 03SAG12, in the Head of the Scorpion). This small
star (Zeta Scorpius) is situated in the third joint of the tail of the
the helio planetary South Node of Venus; 15SAG45 in 1900 - 16SAG41 in
of the constellation:
The Scorpion is associated with the Hebrew letter Oin and the 16th Tarot
Trump "The Lightning-Struck Tower".
The Fixed Stars and Constellations in Astrology,
Vivian E. Robson 1923
By virtue of his tail armed with its powerful sting, wherewith, when
conducting the Sun's chariot through his sign, he cleaves the soil and
sows seed in the furrow, the Scorpion creates natures ardent for war and
active service, and a spirit which rejoices in plenteous bloodshed and
in carnage more than in plunder. Why, these men spend even peace under
arms: they fill the glades and scour the woods; they wage fierce warfare
now against man, now against beast, and now they sell their persons to
provide the spectacle of death and to perish in the arena, when, warfare
in abeyance, they each find themselves foes to attack. There are those,
too, who enjoy mock-fights and jousts in arms (such is their love of
fighting) and devote their leisure to the study of war and every pursuit
which arises from the art of war.

OF THE NEW MOON
There are several patterns being set off by the New Moon this
month. The first is that this is a New Moon in Sagittarius, the
second is that Jupiter, the ruler of Sag, will be conjuncting Pluto on
Tuesday morning/afternoon, depending on your time zone. Major wheels are
turning now, especially for those of you with planets at 28 degrees of
the fire signs, but the same degrees of the air signs are feeling the
warming effects as well. If you have planets are either 17 or 28 degrees
of Earth (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn) or Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio
or Pisces) at these degrees, the transition will be somewhat tougher,
and being careful not to over-spend (or otherwise over-indulge) is
heaven's message for you. Once again, the New Moon is at 17 degrees of
Sag, the Jupiter/Pluto conjunction at 28 degrees of Sag. These are the
generic themes and many people will respond to them strongly, but you
really need to know just what these alignments are doing to YOUR chart
to figure out whether you should crank up the gas (Sag loves to crank up
the gas), or whether you should play your cards more conservatively. We
can now make major changes, throwing out old deadwood, taping some
available resource that has been made available to us, or simply looking
at the bigger picture. We are better able to foresee the future,
determine trends in our surrounding social and political settings and
there's a stellar reason why. Like the seasonal chorus of the season,
this is a wonderful time to access your spiritual counselor and take
stock to the events that are about to unfold, not only for the month,
but for the year.
We have a rare Star of David being formed over the next 72 hours
following the New Moon. You can see the Grand Water Trine closing in the
New Moon chart. Venus is trining the asteroid Pallas at 4 Scorpio and 4
Pisces. Mars is at 8 Cancer and dropping, since it is retrograde. By
Tuesday their orbs will have tightened, and Venus and Mars will trine
each other exactly.
The other piece is the Grand Earth Trine. A Star of David is either a
Grand Water Trine superimposed on a Grand Earth Trine OR it is a Grand
Fire Trine superimposed on a Grand Air Trine. This month we have the
first of these two in effect. In the New Moon chart Saturn is trining
Ceres at 8 Virgo and 10 Taurus. The Moon runs through the degrees of
Capricorn later Monday and Tuesday, filling in the missing leg of the
Star of David. In antiquity this was a much rarer combination, as they
were only working with the seven visible planets, but now we have
Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, not to mention the asteroids, Ceres, Pallas,
Vesta and Juno, and Chiron (not an asteroid). It's a little easier to
see them now as we have many more 'players' involved in the mix, but
they still weave together some of the celestial forces in a marvelous
There's going to need to be some tough work under difficult
conditions, and we must be willing to discipline ourselves to the pace.
The Moon is in Capricorn, Saturn's in Virgo. It's going to take time,
and we may not receive a lot of thanks for the efforts which are needed.
Be sure to take care of your own health, especially around diet (Ceres)
during these days and month.
With Venus and Mars moving into a trine in the water signs, however,
this can also be a passionate or very creative time. Sensuality may be
deeply stirred. We could find ourselves giving into our pleasures, or
the food may be particularly good, but whatever it is, it seems to work
and work well. Family, romance, and personal down time all bode well,
especially after the main work has been accomplished (Earth trine).
On Monday morning, around 10 AM, the Moon will conjunct and activate
the Jupiter Pluto alignment. On Monday afternoon the Moon then enters
Capricorn, and between about 3 AM and 8 PM on Tuesday (Eastern times) it
begins to make all the alignments which really set off the Star of David
more tightly. Taking care of the elderly, taking care of business,
taking care of your responsibilities are all a part of what is being
What will you do?
As a part of this month's seasonal gifts, I will knock

I see becoming the witness, stepping out of the world or
waking up from a dream as the same thing, just different words and
senerios to explain the part of seperating one self from the identiy/belief
one has bought into.
To me it was a process. I first looked to find Love, Peace and Joy
within my self. I did this by counteracting all thoughts with I am
spirit and spirit is perfect. I counteracted not only negative, limited
thoughts but also positive thoughts. I also counteracted things people
would bring to my attention negative as well as positive. I no longer
seeked to feel good about myself...I just acepted myself as I was.
At times I found myself feeling Joyful without any "reason/cause" then
peaceful and loving...without anything causing this feeling. These
feelings came from within. They were me.
Then one day while fighting with partner, I realized that it was not "I"
that was fighting....but Vivian. I found myself, my true self apart from
Vivian. I had become one with Vivian believing I am Vivian. I knew at
that time that I could stop fighting or continue and it would not affect
me either way. It never happened to me.
I would be driving down the street in oneness with all and see a car in
front of me turning and Vivian acting upon what she saw. I saw Vivian,
the car and everything around me, yet fully aware of me. I know
it sounds crazy, but it was/is marvelous. No longer am I affected by
outer circumstances. It does not change who I am. An appearance no
longer pulls me out of being one. I stay within myself, no matter what
happens on the outside.
I have a completely "normal" life. With kids, partner and many animals.
I cook and clean and go about my day and life as everyone else but
without fear and worry. In spite of an appearance I remain who I
am....one with my father.

A little story I would like to share with you:
On my way to my car today, to pick up my daughter from
school, I saw my neighbors were outside working in the yard. Their daughter
is in the same school as my daughter and so I asked if they want me to pick
up their daughter too. They said yes and I went over to their house to pick
up the car sign with the daughters name and class on it. Over at their house
(they are from Puerto Rico) the smell of delicious food caught my attention.
I thought: I wish they would cook for us, but went without saying a word and
picked up the kids from school. I drove back home and dropped off the
neighbors child. As soon as I enter my house the phone rang. It was my
neighbor. She said: "Vivian, I will cook for you today". Ten minutes later
she stood in front of my door with rice, beans and meat for all of us.
We are connected through spirit. There is no need to say or do anything : )
