Full Moon in Scorpio May 9, 2009

In Washington, DC at 1 minute 22 seconds after Midnight edt, May 9, 2009 will perfect a Scorpio Full Moon 18Sco41 in 10th house.

Since images of charts display more clearly at my Stars Over Washington blog, I’ve placed it and quite a few notes there if you wish to peruse.

May 9’s Sun Taurus-Moon Scorpio blend details have been plopped sassily upon my new blog Two Hours You’ll Never Get Back if you’d like to check it out (sassiness appreciated but not required.)

And what of the Full Moon’s Sabian Symbol? I hear you say rather crossly.

Let’s consider ’19Sco’ and the Sun’s position opposite ’19Tau’ which is the Illumination Point.

Usually I check out the opposite degree, the Illumination Point, to gather unconscious information, but since the Sun is considered conscious and the Moon unconscious, we’ll simply check them both as illuminators of one another, if it’s okay by you.

It’s part of the highlighting a Full Moon is famous for when hidden things, often begun at the previous New Moon and the dark (Balsamic) phase for the 3 days prior, may come to full light.

The following will be a blend of Sabian Symbol interpretations from Marc Edmund Jones and Dane Rudhyar.

Moon ’19Sco’ (MEJ): “A Parrot Listening and Then Talking.’ CONVENTIONALITY.

positive expression: exceptional skill in bring the whole tenor of transient circumstances to the service of a personal aspiration;

neg/unconscious/shadow side: idle mimicry and self-gratifying pretense.

’19Sco’ (DR): ‘A Parrot Repeats the Conversation He Has Overheard.’


Keynote: The capacity to transmit transcendental knowledge.

Sun ’19Tau’ (MEJ): ‘A Newly Formed Continent.’ ORIGINALITY.

pos: a revolutionary potentiality by which each individual is enabled to remodel the entire face of the universe;

neg/unconscious/shadow side: a genius for futile turmoil and persistent upset.

’19Tau’ (DR): ‘A New Continent Rising Out of the Ocean.’

Keynote: The surge of new potentiality after a crisis. SPONTANEITY. #

The DR version above for ’19Tau’ describes reaching ‘a state in which the conscious, rational ego is no longer a controlling factor’ but for me it conjures the power elite’s striving for world domination. Ex: America as Francis Bacon’s ‘New Atlantis’ and Thomas More’s ‘Utopia.’

(Perhaps it’s simply a case of too much Political Astrology on my brain. Tiresome? Yes, I KNOW.)

Considering that the unconscous mind is always stronger than the conscious mind, it sounds to me as if the Scorpio Full Moon is in control here especially since Rudhyar explains the Moon’s ’19Sco’ degree as ‘a hint as to man’s capacity to attune himself to sources of higher wisdom if he can be sufficiently attentive and careful in channeling a “Higher Voice.”

The Symbol’s stress on unintelligent repetition in its word picture ‘is to use only one’s intellect. All birds in symbolism suggest spiritual faculties or forces. What is evoked is the possibility of learning from higher Intelligences.”

Well, to me it seems that higher thoughts and information from On High would improve this troubled world, yet I doubt Mr. Rudhar was speaking of going to see the new Star Trek film for “higher Intelligences.”

Or was he? ;p

Update May 19: just got a much-needed heads-up from Crystal Pomeroy at Daykeeper Journal concerning the lunation of May 9 and its esoteric clues to the current flu pandemic so you may wish to check out Crystal’s clear writing and her thoughts on the subject!

  2. Since we hear what we need to know, I learned today that it is important to let others stand on their own, to not usurp or enable irresponsible behavior.
    The cost was a full-body rush of absorbing another’s upset.

    Glad to be home.
