Full Moon January 2019 – Sabian Symbols
Whenever the Moon is full its Sabian Symbol is at the opposite degree of the Sun’s. This month the Sun is in the 1st degree of Aquarius and its Sabian image is ‘An old adobe mission in California’.
The Symbol for the Moon’s position is ‘Blood rushes to a man’s head as his vital energies are mobilised under the spur of ambition’.
Taking the Sun and Moon together as a combined reading we can see that, whenever we stoke up our power to achieve great tasks, this necessarily generates a high level of energy to overcome obstacles. When this energy is blocked or thwarted it can lead to such extreme frustration that our wellbeing may be threatened. Apoplexy, a stroke in other words, is a life-threatening condition.
Metaphor and Literal Meanings
Perhaps we can add some depth to understanding of what this might mean for us by considering a few other factors.
The opportunity and warning contained within these Sabian Mysteries is this: At this time, we can find our mission and clearly express how it balances both the worldly and spiritual aspects of our life goals, as self-serving and community-serving, yet without both exercise and careful balance, we put ourselves at risk of serious health issues that could frustrate our life purpose.
