Explore Your Dreams: Sagittarius New Moon Solar Eclipse



by Cathy Pagano November 23, 2011 03:03 PM EST

        It is the North and South Nodes of the Moon which determine where our yearly eclipses fall.  The North Node points out what we have to integrate into our collective vision; the South Node delineates what we have to leave behind. This year we are called by Sagittarius to stand in our Truth and leave behind the false dichotomies of the Gemini Rational Mind which has controlled our society since the Age of Enlightenment.  This is the year we get to really shift our Minds – time to start using all sides of the brain. Since Gemini’s ruler Mercury goes retrograde in Sagittarius a few hours before this Thursday’s solar eclipse, we can count on spending the next few months contemplating what we believe and how we use our minds – or not!
        Sometimes you just ‘gotta have faith’!
        This Sagittarius new Moon partial solar eclipse occurs on November 24 at 10:10pm PST and on November 25 at 1:10am EST/ 6:10am GMT.  It will be seen at the bottom of the world in Antarctica, South Africa and New Zealand. 
      The Sabian symbol for the New Moon solar eclipse at 3* Sagittarius is: Two men playing chess.  The two opposing sides in the game must use strategy and cunning to conquer their opponent.  Chess trains us to be more objective and aware of the big picture.  It images for us the interplay of light and dark, good and evil, male and female, yin and yang.  We all need to understand the big picture and create accordingly. Our Chess board sharpens the mind as it presses towards its goal. 
        If I had to pick a story to go along with this month’s Sagittarius New Moon, it would be the story of Harry Potter.  Harry is asked to stretch his mind around the fact that he is a Wizard – he has magic in his blood.  But because he has to confront the evil Voldemorte, he must confront the question of what he values.  Before Voldemort becomes embodied again, he tries to entice Harry to side with him and take up Power.  But Harry values Love and loyalty and friendship and rejects the call to Power.  It is this grand mythic story of the struggle within one boy to decide if he will stand for Love or give over to Power that has captured our collective imagination.  This is especially true for men – it is up to men to make this choice for Love, for men still control much of the world’s wealth and power. 
       It is not the power of the rational mind itself which is good or evil – it is what we each chose to do with ours that matters. Objective rationality can be death-dealing if it is cut off from heart values just as subjective emotionality can be delusional if we can’t discriminate between good and evil. We have to achieve a balance of letting the heart lead the way while strengthening our ability to focus our minds on what is important.   The proper balance is the Mind supporting the Heart.
      Ancient wisdom says that magical powers – which include the focused power of Intention - are not meant to be used for personal gain – no matter what The Secret says.  Our beliefs give rise to our reality.  If we believe that we can use our ‘magical power’ of intention to make money and have power over other people, we are siding with Voldemort and his Death Eaters.  We have to decide if we are here to use our creative powers to serve the greater good or our own personal good.
      Have a blessed Thanksgiving!
