Greetings from Listener Karen
Hello April. That is Karen. I’m a longtime listener of the Large Sky Astrology Podcast. I discovered you a couple of years in the past, truly via your weblog on Mooncircles. I needed to know extra about this astrologer that simply stored getting all the things proper in my life. So I clicked via and found that you simply had a podcast, which was pleasant.
You’ve turn out to be part of each week and even the weeks the place I miss the episode, once I catch up and take heed to it the next week, I simply sort of nod alongside going, yep, that was proper. Yep. That occurred. Yep, yep, yep. So thanks a lot for all you do and I’m trying ahead to a different nice yr of listening to you inform me the occasions of the celebs. Thanks a lot. Energy out!
April: And now for right now’s episode!
Right this moment’s Moon
Like I mentioned, Podathon is the week once I may give the Moon a bit of extra consideration as a result of there are some days which might be fairly quiet apart from the moon’s signal modifications and elements. And because it occurs, that is such a day. The Solar is approaching its trine to Jupiter, however that technically takes place on Friday. So I’ll be protecting that on tomorrow’s episode. However in case you really feel a way of rising wanderlust right now, or a want for journey, I feel you’re already tuning into that Jupiter frequency.
So let’s get into the Moon report for right now. The Moon is in Gemini and squares Neptune at 3:21 PM. It goes Void-of-Course till 9:59 PM, when it enters Most cancers.
The moon’s month-to-month keep in Gemini is basically good for studying, finding out, socializing, and getting a change of surroundings. Due to the reference to Mercury right now – the Moon is in a Mercury-ruled signal – it’s an additional busy day for the Moon. Our minds need to be engaged. Multitasking is favored over getting actually intensely centered on one factor.
However we do must be just a bit cautious about overdoing it. The Moon, when it’s in Gemini or Virgo, can are likely to get a bit of scattered and a bit of overcommitted, and it will possibly exhaust us. The Moon squares Neptune right now as effectively, and that’s a side about reconciling mind with instinct. This can be a six-and-a-half-hour Void-of-Course Moon interval that we’ve right now after that sq..
So it truly is a extra necessary message than normal, this Moon sq. to Neptune, and it says, “Hey, it’s nice to be busy. It’s nice to your thoughts to be stimulated, however it’s important to be a bit of bit cautious about overdoing it.”
Thursday is Jupiter’s Day
And once more, this week I’m speaking in regards to the days of the week and their connections with the seven seen planets. Thursday is related to Jupiter. Now it’s named for the Norse God, Thor. However there are quite a lot of similarities between Thor and Jupiter. They’re each gods of thunder, for instance. Within the romance languages, we’ll see that the names for at the present time of the week extra explicitly reference Jupiter.
Jupiter compels us to share our ideas and beliefs, educating, lecturing, writing for publication. These are all good issues to be doing on at the present time. Jupiter additionally represents unfamiliar folks, locations, and issues. Right this moment is the day to strive a brand new sort of restaurant or go to a category or a membership assembly the place you’re prone to meet new folks.
Jupiter enjoys the outside, so attempt to schedule a while in nature. Take a stroll or a bicycle journey on Thursday. Failing that, perhaps you’ll be able to simply eat your lunch open air.
Within the conventional house, Thursday was advertising day. And that sort of is sensible. Jupiter likes to share its prosperity, so right now is the day to get out and store to your family wants.
And Jupiter’s colours are purple and turquoise, so attempt to incorporate these into your wardrobe right now. The thought behind that is that on an unconscious stage, folks may be inclined to reply favorably to those sorts of colours on Jupiter’s Day, so not a nasty concept to include a bit of little bit of that in case you can.
Jupiter’s gem stones are turquoise, topaz, and lapis lazuli. So if in case you have any jewellery with these gem stones, make sure to put on them right now to honor our buddy Jupiter. After all, right now is a particular Thursday as a result of as I mentioned, we’re constructing as much as tomorrow’s Solar-Jupiter facet, so we’re all feeling the pull towards Jupiter a bit of greater than normal.
Greetings from Listener Shellie
Hello, my identify is Shellie, and I’ve been listening to the Large Sky Astro podcast for the reason that starting. It’s been a part of my Monday rituals. April, you might be an unimaginable trainer and I’m so grateful for you deepening my training in astrology via your writings and thru your fantastic podcast. I want you a really blissful podcast week. I hope it’s most profitable. And please know your listeners, together with myself, in fact, love you, and we’re so grateful to your presence in our lives by way of the wonders of podcasting.
A Nearer Have a look at the Sabian Symbols
This week, I’m taking the chance to dig a bit of bit deeper into a few of the ideas that seem fairly typically in my weekly episodes. Right this moment I need to discuss in regards to the Sabian symbols, as a result of I seek advice from them quite a bit.
The Sabian symbols are 360 symbolic photos and phrases. There’s one for every diploma of the zodiac. They had been channeled by psychic Elsie Wheeler and recorded by astrologer Mark Edmund Jones in 1925, right here in my truthful metropolis of San Diego. So they are going to rejoice their centennial in a few years.
The Sabian symbols are utilized in a wide range of methods. Astrologers use them typically as a instrument of divination, to make use of the symbols as factors of focus for meditation or as writing prompts, and so they can take us right into a beginning chart in a bit of extra imaginative approach.
The Sabian symbols start at one Aries, however the Zodiac in astrology begins at zero levels Aries. So subsequently, planetary placements are rounded as much as the following entire diploma, and the Sabian image for that diploma is the one which’s interpreted. For instance, if the Solar in your chart is at 24º25’ Libra, you’d learn the Sabian image for 25 levels Libra, Info within the image of an autumn leaf. One thing that’s positioned at 29 levels and a few variety of minutes in an indication would then be rounded as much as 30. So in case you had the Solar at 29º45’ Virgo, you’d spherical it as much as 30 Virgo for the Sabian image.
I had a query from listener Josh about my use of the symbols, and he wrote, “I’m simply actually beginning to get into astrology and I’m slowly accumulating a vocabulary across the indicators, planets, homes, and transits. I’m listening to quite a lot of totally different podcasts proper now, many from totally different views.” Which, by the best way, I feel is a superb concept. “You discuss in regards to the Sabian symbols quite a bit, and I’ve achieved some Googling about them, however I’m questioning what led you to make use of the symbols in your readings personally versus another methodology of divination, tarot, the I Ching, ox entrails….”
He truly wrote that. I like that!
Josh, it’s a actually good query. I truly didn’t at all times use the symbols, and actually, once I first encountered them a few years in the past, I simply didn’t resonate with them in any respect. That modified some years in the past once I hosted astrologer Lynda Hill at my house. Lynda is an knowledgeable within the Sabian symbols. She’s devoted quite a lot of her profession to getting the phrase out about them, and her guide 360 Levels of Knowledge, is only a terrific reference guide on the topic. So I spent some evenings with Lynda over glasses of wine, speaking in regards to the symbols. And the best way she spoke about them was actually intriguing to me, and it opened up the best way I checked out them.
I feel I didn’t like them at first as a result of I attempted to learn them actually, and so they’re actually much more like poetry. There are occasions if you get this literal connection between a logo and one thing that occurs that may be fairly hanging, however more often than not they’re extra imaginative. And what I’ve realized to do over time is simply take my first impression of a logo and concentrate on what spoke to me about it in a specific state of affairs, as an alternative of making an attempt to determine it out phrase for phrase.
I actually like utilizing them on the podcast as a result of I really feel they create attention-grabbing shading to the planetary elements and lunations and all of the issues that I cowl on every episode. They summon my creativeness, and that may be helpful if you’re an astrologer who spends quite a lot of time writing and talking. The symbols awaken the identical a part of my mind, actually, because the digital collage work that I do, and people photos are featured in my web site and on social media. Anyway, I do actually love them and I invite listeners to search for all of their very own Sabian symbols. Bear in mind, spherical up. And if in case you have a planet that’s precisely at a level of an indication, so say 14 levels Taurus, no minutes, then you definately would learn 14 levels Taurus.
However learn all of yours and I feel you’ll discover they’re sort of fascinating. And in the event that they don’t make sense to you initially, simply set them apart, see how they could connect with your favourite film, your favourite guide, specific issues that come up typically in your life as a theme. However in fact, now Josh has me interested by studying oxen trails.
So not likely. Ew!
