Are you ready for the next Full Moon on Tuesday, December 17th @ 1:28 AM Pacific or 4:28 AM Eastern?
This lunation was called the "Full Cold Moon or the Full Long Nights Moon" by Native Americans for excellent reasons. This is always a time when the icy grip of winter clamps down.
Also as we move toward the Winter Solstice (Dec. 21st) the Moon hangs above the horizon for a longer duration. This midwinter full Moon has a high trajectory across the sky because it is opposite a low Sun and as we will see mutability and restlessness of this lunation with the Gemini/Sagittarius axis good for amping up the excitement level with cosmic and mundane data/information overload.
Severe weather is the real story of the day with a dangerous 1000 mile snowstorm is blasting the East Coast of the USA. It is cold everywhere in the Northern Hemisphere as the Cardinal Cross continues to roll ahead with Mars opposing Uranus for sudden freezes and cold snaps from Israel to Alexandria and Cairo. Snow in Cairo, first time in 112 years!
Israel got clobbered to by snow too as the Middle East is also swimming in a Black Swan Event.
'Historic' Israeli Snowstorm; Power Outage In Jerusalem
In fact the Moon is @ 26 degrees Gemini - Sabian Symbol: A winter frost in the woods.
This symbol can reflect the struggle to survive cold and heartless conditions during barren times.
Also there is feeling of some of being "frozen out" or lost and neglected like those who may lose their unemployment benefits due to the new budget.
In the chart set for Washington, DC on Dec. 17th. @ 4:28 AM EST, the Moon resides in the 8th house or natural house of Scorpio and the ascendant we should be aware of those correspondences In other words the 8th. relates to debt, taxes, death, probate, inheritance, losses, international finance, multi-national corporations and social security.
Of course with the Sun @ 26 degrees Sagittarius and in the another financial house, the 2nd. The 2nd house relates to money markets, banks and financial institutions, investments, national wealth and values. .the Sabian - "A Flag Bearer in Battle."
A symbol of convictions mixed with fanaticism and leadership weighed down by responsibilities and with Mercury near by in Sagittarius keeping an optimistic and brave face mounting troubles (notice Saturn, Lord of Karma right on the rising). Looking further at the chart below set for Washington, DC we notice that Saturn is almost exactly conjunct the ascendant which implies restrictions, control and passion in Scorpio. This Scorpio mash-up reveals more debt trending and secrets which have kept our country in check for a long time.
Mars is the co-ruler of this chart since it is the ancient ruler of Scorpio. Pluto is the modern ruler of this chart and as we see Mars is in powerful cardinal cross involving Uranus/Pluto and Jupiter.
Right after the Full Moon, the planet of eccentric shifts, Uranus stations (@ 9:39 AM PST) to move direct to really shake things up. This could all add up to an unprecedented, unexpected and shocking Black Swan Event. In my next report, I will go into more detail using fixed stars, but for now enjoy the surf
. Some history... The term Black Swan originates from the (Western) belief that all swans are white because these were the only ones accounted for. However, in 1697 the Dutch explorer Willem de Vlamingh discovered black swans in Australia. This was an unexpected event in (scientific) history and profoundly changed zoology. After the black swan were discovered, it seemed obvious that black swans had to exist just as other animals with varying colors were known to exist as well.
Mars is traveling in justice-oriented Libra is posited in the 11th. house representing the legislature, Congress, Senate, allies of the country, local government and national purpose. Mars, the warrior rules the military, the police, aggressiveness but in Libra opts for negotiations but there is resistance. Mars in this chart is applying towards an opposition with Uranus in the 5th. house connected to all things Leo. The reason I mentioned the Black Swan idea is that this occurs on the 5/11 house axis when shocking things occur. In this mundane chart, the 5th. represents places of entertainment, sports, fashion, leisure, children, games of chance, speculative interests, linked to Stock Exchanges. We could a sudden upswing with the Dow over 16,000 followed by a precipitous drop!
Uranus is stationing direct @ 9 degrees Aries. Aries the symbolic Pioneer, Adversary and at times the raging Bersker! The Sabian Symbol for 9 degrees Aries: "A seer gazes into a crystal ball in front of him." This reflects that this moon will bring flashes of intuition, clear sight and the ability to penetrate hidden mysteries for some. While others may get confused by the literal meaning of symbolic messages. ONE thing for sure don't get lost in the supposed, BIG PICTURE since Mercury now in Sagittarius has just entered an "Out of Bounds" position by declination and is moving towards the Sun in overly optimistic Sagittarius! Again there is a tendency toward the irrational exuberance fueled by the mainstream media trying to paint over the reality of what is coming. From Matthew 24:36: "However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows"
Consider that Uranus moving direct connects with the unexpected, revolutions, anarchy, innovations, technology, and earthquakes. In Lunation charts (New Moon and Full Moon events) an afflicted Uranus can trigger upheavals, revolution, plane crashes, train derailments, explosions, large accidents, severe weather earthquakes, tornadoes With Comet ISON's fragments in an erratic orbit, more CME's delivering rapid fire blows to the Earth's magnetic fields and an upswing in meteors/fireballs lightning storms watch for crazy weather. This Uranian station offers the real possibility of larger and continued protests, strikes and riots for real and perceived freedoms.
Saturn is transiting @ 19 degrees Scorpio with this Sabian Symbol "A parrot listening then talking repeats a conversation he has overheard."
This Sabian has obvious references to the NSA Surveillance scandal, the idea of channeling information, translating languages, talking heads and yes brainwashing. Expect more push back from the collective against this type of invasive activity now being implemented by social media .
