Nov 9: Scorpio New Moon and the Lost Peonies

Abandoned Garden with Peonies

UPDATE Oct 28, 2008: the following post is from a Scorpio New Moon in Nov, 2007. You’ll find a few details on the Scorpio New Moon of Oct 28, 2008 at my other blog, Stars Over Washington:

~Original 2007 post begins here:

This Friday’s New Moon, the beginning of a new cycle, falls at 17Sco10 so I’d like use both the ’rounding up’ and the exact degree for Sabian Symbol details.

Paraphrasing from Lynda Hill’s “360 Degrees of Wisdom” (Lynda’s link is found in the Sidebar under ‘Astrology’) we find that…

“17Sco” = “A woman, filled with her own spirit, is the father of her own child.”

This symbol relates to a sense of capability and self-sufficiency and the feeling of being able to accomplish almost anything; coping with being on one’s own, and with looking after the details of life without anyone’s help.

There may be a sense of being “left with the baby”; single parenthood, or the loss of males in one’s life; creative projects being birthed (New Moon) more fully with an infinite and total connection to what one wants to produce; in vitro fertilization; the complications of adoption; facing the world feeling whole; having the right to determine one’s future; the story of Jesus’ conception.

Lynda always includes a Caution for each degree:

Uncompromising feminism or chauvinism; unrealistic dependence; feeling one must be responsible for everything; being abandoned; having no one to turn to for support; being an adult before one’s time.

“18Sco” = “A quiet path through the woods brilliant in autumn coloring.”

The path one must take in order to finish something or accomplish a mission; ‘autumn leaves’ are syymbols of change–the energy of recent growth is returned to the earth in preparation for the next growing season; transition; quiet walks reconnect us with nature.

Fruitful success is now behind; harvest time; all is changing; winter comes with its need for recuperation; let the past go and make new plans; the opportunity and need to take time to quietly appreciate this shift of energy; rewards; overcoming disappointments; gardens, sometimes off the beaten path; memories; reverence and respect; rich colors; overcoming through positive attitudes; warm responses; having a “been there done that” attitude.

Caution: being too late for the harvest; being oblivious to nature’s beauty; dwelling on the past; feeling that winter is upon you with no way out; issues of growing old; being alone in one’s ‘autumn years.’

Panacea’s Pink Fringe

Panacea’s Pink Fringe 

Here’s Panacea as icon, but earlier this evening I published the full view of Panacea’s Pink Fringe, here:

http://cosmicpersonadesigns.blogspot.com/2007/11/panaceas-pink-fringe.html

where you’ll also find a few notes on this Greek goddess and her kin.

Panacea was known for cures and remedies–things that are sadly in short supply in this old world. Do ever get the feeling as I do that world ‘leaders’ don’t WANT things to go any better? That chaos is the point? Me, too.

And drop by http://starsoverwashington.blogspot.com

if you will, for today I splashed up John Quincey Adams’ natal chart with a few details, including a timely quote from our 6th president concerning America and war.

Oh! and you are invited to mosey over to my Gather Pages at:

http://judecowell.gather.com

for a variety of stuff to read and view. And join Gather, if you haven’t, so we can schmooze!
