Tomorrow morning at 10:37 am edt, a New Moon reaches perfection @ 2Ari22, and its 3 twos emphasize the principle of '2'--others, partnerships, money, dualism, and so on.
Checking the Sabian Symbols for both '2Ari' and '3Ari', let's see what themes this new cycle may entail over the next two weeks until the Full Moon brings fulfillment of something begun, or the blossoming of seeds planted, in the dark of tomorrow's New Moon especially since first zodiacal sign, Aries, is all about new starts, and the principle of I AM.
Actually, the principle is much like The Fool card in the Tarot deck as he takes a first step on a mysterious journey with its green for new growth and vistas implications. Now I can think of many fools infesting Washington DC politics at the moment, can't you? Wish they'd take a first step out of town and leave decent folk alone.
Plus, the Moon in Mundane Astrology signifies The People and The Public who are so often made fools of by political and financial liars, cheats, speculators, and crooks. But that's another post...however, do see a note about the Sabian Symbol for the *2nd cusp, below, when tomorrow's New Moon horoscope is set for Washington, DC.
Included are Illumination Points for each degree (opposite) which denote unconscious or shadow material for when viewing Politics, we must always lift the rock of (supposed) reality to reveal what's hidden underneath; some additional italics are used to emphasize current events:
'2Ari' = "A Comedian Entertaining the Group"...RELEASE.
positive expression: the power of personality through a full and completely uninhibited self-expression;
negative: a neglect of common responsibility through idle diversion of interest.
Illumination Point: '2Lib' = "The Light of the Sixth Race Transmuted to the Seventh"...THRESHOLD.
pos: the imaginative sweep of of man's vision and an eagerness to execute its promise;
neg: a loss of reality in an infinitely regressive otherworldliness or a total lack of all practicality.
(Since it's only a mere "man's vision" it is obviously shortsighted--like Paul Ryan's 'budget plan' meant to rip apart our social safety net and cause even greater suffering across the land. Quite an austere jackassian vision they intend to force upon the populace--jc)
'3Ari' = "A Cameo Profile of a Man in the Outline of His Country"...EXPLOITATION.
pos: man's capacity for giving full play to every ramification of the reality he has created for himself (or of the false reality some, including the corporate media, have created for the rest of us to be fooled by--jc);
neg: an unimaginative conventionality which leaves him in bondage to every current stereotype of human relations (oh, that one's too easy! jc.)
Illumination Point '3Lib' = "The Dawn of a New Day, Everything Changed"...INNOVATION.
pos: man's insatiable appetite for experiment and continuing self-discovery in every possible area of human experience;
neg: inability to catch the challenge of living in even the most trviasl matters.
Of course you know that references to 'dawn' and a 'new day' tend to remind me of the globalists' coldhearted, oh-so-rational vision of a 'New World Order' full of chaos, want, and a return to serfdom for the masses, don't you?
*2nd cusp has '6 Cancer' upon it when the March 22, 2012 New Moon chart is set for DC which is America's natal Jupiter degree..."Game Birds Feathering Their Nests", and a Moon-ruled house may bring fluctuations and changes.
As often happens, whenever I need to take a break from grousing on the political varmints and fraudsters I describe within my Common Good, We-the-People viewpoint using the lens of Political Astrology, I turn to artwork...especially my first love, drawing.
And since we're speaking of the Moon in this post, you may wish to see what I've been up to today over at Secret Moon Art for Art Breaks from tiresome things like Politics and scoundrels are restful and can be rather rejuvenating for both mind and eye! jc
On-topic reading: Paul Ryan releases new GOP budget plan: What's in it? At 10:30 am edt in DC this morning, Ryan released the plan with America's natal Uranus 8Gem55 rising and with our natal Mars soon to follow--therefore a few potentials formed in a midpoint picture:
N Mars/tr ASC = n Uranus: an agitated fighter; a love of quarreling; violence; threatening or intimidating others; a sudden event; injury (Ebertin); ego aggrandizement; testiness; picking a fight (Tyl.)
