Formulate the Plans of a Believer
Full Moon | November 23, 2018 | 0 Gemini '52
I found myself wondering what it would have been like for me if I were a Jewish woman about my age living alone in Warsaw when the air was sprayed with ideas of lies and hatred that led to the disappearance of my neighbors, family, and friends. What if I was an undocumented parent living in the United States today who had to carry on working and carry on the dream that made me leave the life I knew. Would my family have a plan in the event we might be separated? If I were in these shoes, would I believe, or would I doubt?
I would believe and I would formulate the plans of a believer.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of misinformed men and women, I believe no evil for Thou art with me. Every good man, woman, child and creature is with me and with them I will dwell well always.
The New Moon is 0 Gemini 52’ and full. Let us remember that the Moon reflects the Sun in Sagittarius. The key words for Sagittarius are, “I perceive.” The key words for Gemini are “I think.” Our task is to think perceptively. First, we zero out, clear the deck, and wipe the slate. Before we start this two-day plus course of responsive, reactive, thinking, we would benefit from approaching subjects with open minds.
Nothing is concluded except “now,” and now keeps rolling like the tide. My job is to show you that there is a correlation between the planets and your experience and let you perceive that you can shape the experience and the story of your life.
There is order in the universe and that being aware of this helps you to operate more consciously. When you operate more consciously you create your future better.
In many ways, the sign Sagittarius representsforward movement, expansion and progress. Sagittarius represents the fiery ideal, the inspiration for more and better, a target over the rainbow. The Sun in this chart is conjunct Jupiter in the sign of Sagittarius, which it rules, and Mercury the thinker is in Sagittarius also. These Sagittarius planets square both Mars (anger, assertion, threat) and Neptune (sublime idealism) in Pisces. Sagittarius square Pisces can be big dreams challenged by disbelief and the disbelief is in the self. Encourage yourself to carry on with courage. Feed yourself encouraging words such as these of William Ernest Henly:
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.
Lift up your eyes to the hills. Aim for the epic, the great and the new. Aim your arrow of Sagittarius at a life far beyond that of complaining desperation.
Some believe that because there is pain, suffering and darkness in the world, you should put aside your optimism and gruel in line with despair. Some say, “It’s the dream afraid of waking that never takes a chance.” – Bette Midler
Practicum Clean the slate of your potential and reach for the stars. Expect the best. Stand guard at the doorway of your mind. Let not doubt have a foothold. The Moon is at the height of illumination, but the degree is an egg of zero degrees. Full at zero speaks of clean slates, open minds and fresh hearts.
Sun, Jupiter and Mercury in Sagittarius opposes the Moon and both square Mars and Neptune in Pisces. Hope in Sagittarius meets doubt or faith in Pisces.
