Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear. Ambrose Redmoon
Dangers bring fears, and fears more dangers bring. Richard Baxter
Who sees all beings in his own Self, and his own Self in all beings, loses all fear. Upanishad
I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain. Frank Herbert
The only thing we have to fear is fear itself. Franklin D. Roosevelt
I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment while I was hoeing in a village garden, and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance than I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn. Henry Thoreau
Do not speak of a rhinoceros if there is no tree nearby. African Proverb
The Capricorn full Moon happens on July 1 in the United States and July 2 in Australia. (For those who don't realise, the full Moon happens at the exact same moment all across the world, however, Australia is almost a day ahead of the US - I mention this as some people think we, in Australia, have the new and full Moons after the US - not so! It happens everywhere at the same moment in time - it's just that time measurements have Australia, and New Zealand, ahead of the UK and the US).
It seems that there's so much going on right now - like the energies have been ramped right up. We have the vote for marriage equality in the US, with some people threatening to set fire to themselves, or, as we saw in Australia, a conservative Christian couple threatening to divorce if the rights to gay marriage were enacted. It's been like a circus. It is always like a circus, but it feels like it's been ramped up. We have the situation in Greece, that will be interesting to watch. I wonder if they will leave the Eurozone and what that will mean in the long run. Of course, we have many, many other things happening. The TPP being introduced, for example. So many laws being introduced, most of which will have a detrimental effect on the people. Chiron on the 'Ten Commandments' degree is very telling, I feel :)
There are brilliant things going on now, though. Absolutely wonderful. We have the Venus/Jupiter conjunction trining Uranus AND we have the Moon's north node traversing the Super Galactic Center (SGC), which adds to the magic and mystery of this amazing time. More on this below...
The full Moon is on Capricorn 10: AN ALBATROSS FEEDING FROM THE HAND OF A SAILOR - the following is from my book The Sabian Oracle: 360 Degrees Of Wisdom -
'An Albatross Feeding From the Hand of a Sailor' is an image that implies the necessity of
being able to overcome the perceived separation between humans and other living beings. Feelings of separation are usually the case when we don't really understand or trust each other in some way. The 'Albatross' has to overcome the fear it experiences from being in such close contact with a human and the 'Sailor' has to fight his superstitions that surround the 'Albatross'. In "The Ancient Mariner", a sailor is condemned to eternally sail the world, after killing an albatross that had helped rescue his ship.
This degree shows the overcoming of fears, superstitions or limiting thoughts. One of the ways of overcoming fears is through gentleness and a readiness to let down your guard and interact with people or animals without feeling afraid or vulnerable. Putting up a wall between you and other living things can cause alienation or the loss of the rewards that can come from truly relating. Even seemingly natural ‘enemies’ can realize the possibility of interaction and letting go of fear may be necessary. You may feel that you can deal with someone with whom you have usually kept your distance – possibly even help each other.
Keywords: Feeding one's higher nature with good nourishment. Banishing worries, so that one can fly ever higher. Overcoming superstitions or beliefs. Travelers who put themselves at risk in foreign lands or cultures. Talking to anybody anywhere. Sharing one's bounty. Sailors, boats. Birds. Empathy and sympathy for others. Restoring trust and hope.
The Caution: Manipulating events or people with false nourishment. Having alternative motives for wanting to draw others close. Being afraid of strangers or strange situations. The loss of independence. Fear of intimacy.
Moon symbolizes: Emotions, moods, mother, family, clan, domestic issues, relationship to home and country. Feelings, sentiments, nourishment, emotional nurturing, monkey chatter mind, lunar and menstrual cycles, clarity of emotions or lunacy. Female energy - yours and others.
Further, on The Albatross. We are being asked to let go of those things - memories, ideas that didn't work out, relationships that have gone south or sour, opportunities missed, difficult attitudes towards oneself or others, etc, we have to let them go. These things can hang around our neck like the albatross, dead and rotting, and we can be condemned to sailing the seven seas for the rest of our lives, not finding base, not touching down, not coming to a more authentic and rewarding sense of self.
What is hanging around your neck? Is it a memory, a thought? A busted relationship? An attitude towards life, perhaps? Sometimes, letting go is as simple as that; we just decide to move on, to drop the story. Pluto was on this degree for a very long time at the end of 2012 and, at times, on this degree throughout 2013. We have had a good chance to take a long look at what holds us back and keeps us stuck in some story that we may need to outgrow. Of course, there are many people who will read this and notice that this is an issue in the lives of some people around them.
The Sun is on Cancer 10: A LARGE DIAMOND IN THE FIRST STAGES OF THE CUTTING PROCESS
'A Large Diamond in the First Stages of the Cutting Process' implies a person or situation that has the potential for perfection, talent, beauty and considerable wealth. Whatever one is wanting to shape, build or become, the process of cutting, grinding and shaping a 'Diamond' takes skill, care and time. As one continues to polish and grind away, a more refined and beautiful object emerges. The facets of the gem become more and more beautiful as the "old bits of rock" are chipped off.
This Symbol implies the beginning stages of things that are becoming something wonderful, useful and worthwhile. Things are always growing and perfecting and it seems that some things are just beginning to take shape and the potential is enormous, but there needs to be care and accuracy taken or all the work to date could be lost or spoilt. This situation has probably taken a long time to develop and comes from a deep organic essence. Keep cutting away the unnecessary and the flawed and you'll emerge with a wonderful gem as this Symbol implies riches and talent and beauty.
Keywords: Coming to terms with inner worth. Emerging perfection. Beauty that is still a bit "rough around the edges". Naivety. Beauty that is within, even if it has flaws. Potential. Chopping and grinding away to get to the essential. Being almost, but not completely, perfect. Reserving judgment. Self-development courses. Knowing where to start or finish. Craftsmanship. Finding the best in everything.
The Caution: Leaving an important job unfinished. Seeing the flaws not the inherent beauty. Being afraid to take the first stab at something. Being overwhelmed by importance and value. Being overprotective or insecure. Not seeing the whole picture. Things unformed and incomplete. A "diamond in the rough", someone lacking social polish.
The Sun symbolizes: One’s core center, spirit, heart, issues to do with father, men, self, ego, your male side. How you radiate your sense of being. What others see, how you are recognized or remembered, sense of identity and connection with male energy - yours and others.
Mercury is on Gemini 20: A CAFETERIA WITH AN ABUNDANCE OF CHOICES
This Symbol shows the wide range of nourishment, opportunity and the ability to have things in our modern world. There are so many choices but each has its price, so be careful what you choose. Each will nourish you, but some things are far more nourishing and sustaining than others. However, there is so much on display and available that if you don't like your first choice you can get something else - that is if you can afford it. Take what you need, enjoy it and realize the abundance that's happening in your life. Make sure that what you get is good quality as many things may not be.
Keywords: Overwhelming alternatives in modern society. Satiation. Everything provided for. Self- service. Issues of indulgence and one's needs satisfied. Salivating over what's on display. The incredible number of "choices" in a technological society. Too many choices (food, lovers, jobs, opportunities) – so little time. Instant gratification. Takeaway food. Buffet-style meals. Obesity. Chef's surprises. The need to be discerning. Mechanized systems that don't require much thought.
The Caution: Taking everything you can simply because it is available, regardless of needs. The inability to make life's decisions. Things so near, yet so far. The inability to satisfy no matter how much one has. Feeling that one has to eat because it's there. Indulgence beyond reason. Indigestion. Waste. Obsession with food. Using up people one by one.
Mercury symbolizes: Mind, thought, communication, memory, expression, intelligence. News, exchanges, chatting, conversations, short journeys, connections with others, telephones, emails, siblings, neighbors, the reasoning mind. Day-to-day activities. Cars, keys, small animals.
Venus is on Leo 23: A BAREBACK RIDER IN A CIRCUS DISPLAYS HER DANGEROUS SKILL
This Symbol shows situations of showing one’s talent, training, skills and bravery to others. The ‘Bareback Rider' has trained and practiced for the performance and is up and ready to show what they can do. A sense of balance combined with timing is vitally important otherwise you could be thrown mid-way through your performance. Although you may believe passionately in what you are doing, you may put yourself at risk to present your abilities, skills and emotions boldly and skillfully. Done correctly, this will not doubt impress others most of the time, but be wary of running into the ring unrehearsed. Being well trained and fit and ready helps.
Of course, this Symbol can imply feeling like life is a circus and the performances can seem somewhat unhinged - particularly when looking at the media or politics. People sometimes see an opening and rush into to fill it, especially in the media, and, if they haven't got what it takes, they can look foolish and draw the wrong kind of attention.
Keywords: Defying gravity. Controlling one's animal instincts. Courage and mastery over one's energies. Shows of strength. Situations where one might get "bucked". Rushing in where angels fear to tread. Being shown in the media. The allure of drama and danger. Life as a circus or carnival. Amazing displays of skill. Superheroes. Comic book characters. Impressing people with well-rehearsed skills.
The Caution: "Showing off", losing control and falling. Demanding attention. Looking for applause. Fooling with nature's energies. Arousing or controlling animal passions. Acting wildly and not thinking about the consequences.
Venus symbolizes: Relatedness, cooperation, what attracts you. The experience of sweetness, beauty or delight. Social interactions, love, friends, how you reach out to people. Feminine persona, relationship with mother and females. Money, possessions, sense of values.
Mars is on Cancer 6: IN SPRING GAME BIRDS ARE FEATHERING THEIR NESTS
The 'Game Birds' in this Symbol can picture the desire for security, sometimes in the midst of rather unstable situations. 'Birds Feather Their Nests' in readiness for a new life and new beginnings. This Symbol speaks of building or decorating a 'Nest' somewhere that is safe and comfortable. It is a beautiful Symbol that can speak of falling into the right living space and feeling like you've made it home. Beautifying the home, even with some new color, or, moving the furniture around, hanging drapes, etc, these kinds of things are inherent in this Symbol.
Although there is a good feeling about the future and a new life coming, perhaps there is a feeling that you will not have somewhere to nest or that you could actually be somewhat expendable. Be careful not to become either too complacent or to react in fright at any sudden surprises. You could jeopardize your situation as others may judge whether you are qualified to stay where you are, or, are able to maintain your situation. This is a beautiful Symbol, but with Mars on it, it won't be domestic bliss for everyone.
Having said that, it can also show people finding a safe, beautiful, comfortable place to live and thrive.
Keywords: Homes, houses, flats, living arrangements. Instinctive dedication. Laying the groundwork for those to come. Creating a base to feel safe. Nurturing. Endangered habitat. Raising money. Making yourself or someone else comfortable. Interior decoration. Preparation. Home building. Landlords and tenants. Noisy or nosy neighbors. Renting vs. owning. Watching for danger. The nesting instinct. Renovations. Babies' rooms. Working to pay the mortgage or rent.
The Caution: Being unnecessarily afraid to venture out on "one's own". Taking over other people's territory. Feeling unwanted. Danger. Fussing over small details. Over-preparation. Not knowing how long one can hold out in a situation. Being vulnerable to change. Being at the mercy of others. Endless housework.
Mars symbolizes: Drive, determination or agenda, how you get to your goals. How you express and handle anger, ambition, assertion of self and ability to step forward. The male principle, sexuality, the ability to step up to the plate when one needs to. Fight or flight.
The Karmic Condition (the degree before) of Mars is Cancer 5: AT A RAILROAD CROSSING, A CAR RACES WITH A TRAIN. I feel to mention this Symbol as many of us may have witnessed upsetting things, or, felt a little like we've been hit by a train. Over the last several days, Mars has gone over some rather difficult Sabian Symbols and I feel that, on many levels, things will lighten up from now on - at least to some extent.
This Symbol implies the desire, or the ability, to compete with or take on society as if life were a race or something to be conquered. The ‘Car’ is a vehicle for the individual and the ‘Train’ a vehicle for the masses. There is often a need for caution; the individual will not always survive a collision with the more powerful collective. It may not work to be insisting bravely that your individual needs should be considered. The collective has too much momentum. If someone pits themselves and their energies continually against society, sooner or later they are likely to lose. Not looking to the consequences of one's actions. Running against the grain of others. Cars, trains. Individual rights. Rebelling. Split second timing. Taking one’s chances.
Jupiter is on Leo 22: A CARRIER PIGEON FULFILLING ITS MISSION
This Symbol implies a clear sense of purpose and direction, even a sense of divine guidance. The ‘Carrier Pigeon’ may have to go through hardships and obstacles in order to deliver the message it is carrying or to complete the mission. This can be about bridging communications between people or conveying something that someone needs to hear or know. Pigeons were trained to deliver very important messages and some won honors and medals. Be sure that the end is in sight and there is a prize to be won in bringing a message to those who need it. Whatever this Symbol is speaking about, someone has a “Mission” that needs to be fulfilled.
What is your 'Mission'. Are you ready for it?
Venus is conjunct Jupiter, which is wonderful as it can bring all kinds of good news, good outcomes, good vibes, new relationships, new love, a new sense of being, flashes of good luck, etc, etc. Venus is soon to go retrograde (more on that in another newsletter), and Venus and Jupiter will be playing around together for some time. The conjunction is a wonderful omen of good things coming. This is a sign of not only good luck, but kindness and goodwill to others. Many good things may be brewing for you :)
Keywords: Bringer of good tidings and news. Creating lines of communication. Completing tasks. Feeling like one is on a mission. Finding out what's truly going on. Having a sense of destiny. Receiving orders from a higher authority. Being magnetically aligned. Pigeons, doves. Not being put off the track no matter what. Mail. Flying home.
The Caution: Gossip. Messages that are not useful to anyone or are outworn and old. Needing recognition and applause for doing simple things. Useless information. Putting a lot of effort into something that is not worth it. "Stool pigeons". Working until one drops from exhaustion. Being so one-pointed that you forget other parts of your life.
Jupiter symbolizes: The big picture, expansion, exploration, aspirations, religious and philosophical ideals, issues to do with traveling, foreign lands, people and traditions, culture, education, generosity, luck, abundance, support, optimism. Insight through knowledge and wisdom.
Saturn is on Scorpio 30: CHILDREN IN HALLOWEEN COSTUMES INDULGING IN VARIOUS PRANKS
'Children in Halloween Costumes' are seen 'Indulging In Various Pranks'. They are most likely having a wonderful time, playing around in the streets, going door to door and watching the reactions of the people they encounter. Sometimes they wear lots of makeup and masks in their endeavor to win people over or to convince them that they deserve their treats. If they don't receive a treat, or reward, sometimes they get very mischievous and play 'Pranks' on people. This Symbol can show the 'Prankster' in all of us, in some measure. 'Halloween' is said to be a time when the veil between the living and the dead becomes an illusion, nebulous or very thin.
This Symbol implies that society needs to have an outlet for disruptive energies, and to have periodic displays of fun, even indulging in somewhat disruptive pranks. You may feel that the trickster in you needs to be let out every now and then, or you may be the focus of tricks by others. Whichever, it should be acknowledged that there needs to be an occasional outlet for immature or fun loving energies, as long as there's no harm done. This Symbol can refer to somebody who does not take anything too seriously. The time of Halloween is the time when the veil between the living and the dead becomes very thin.
This can also point to things getting a little out of hand. How can your organise your life better so you are not at the 'mercy' of the trickster?
Keywords: The madman inside all of us. Astro-drama. The lifting of the veil between the living and the dead. Unintegrated energies playing tricks on the unwary. Tricksters. Creative surprises. Halloween. Trick or treat. Practical jokes played on the unwary. Roaming the streets. Dressing up. Ghouls and ghosts.
The Caution: Being unable to connect with real and immediate emotions. Contempt for the establishment. 'Mucking around' and not getting to the core of things. Evading one's responsibilities through being silly or madcap. Not respecting other people's boundaries.
Saturn symbolizes: Authority, rules, discipline and obligation The heavy stuff. What we fear, loss, karma, aging, the establishment, orthodoxy, tradition, status, the concept of time, walls, boundaries, limits, older people, restrictions, patience, conquering difficulties.
Uranus is on Aries 21: A BOXER IS ENTERING THE RING. Uranus is trining the Venus/Jupiter conjunction. This speaks of all kinds of good things coming about and we may be feeling very optimistic and like celebrating. Obstructions that you may have been feeling are likely to melt away - this is a fabulous line-up of planets.
'A Boxer' shows someone with the ability to stand up, fight or take on a challenge. This person is seen 'Entering the Ring'—a place where they need to stand up for something, tackle an issue or a person; to prove themselves strong in some measure. Fighting can take many forms, it can be done obviously or subversively. One can throw punches on every level of consciousness: physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally.
This Symbol shows that there may be a temptation to take on issues, even to fight, but it needs to be with dignity and regulation. You may feel a need, or the urge, to step up to the plate and take something or someone on. There are rules to follow and often others will be end up being the judge of the final outcome. Make sure you possess the skills and training to defend what you believe. Remember that sometimes you need to back off if you're not winning a contest. Question: are you more on the attack or on the defense?
Keywords: Physical or psychological self - assertion and determination. Attack or defense? Fighting for emotional, psychological or physical space. Being seen as a person of strength. Throwing punches. Fighting on any level. Being prepared to take a swing at someone or something. Stepping up to the plate. Throwing down the gauntlet. Going after the title. Big vs. small egos.

Neptune is on Pisces 10: AN AVIATOR IN THE CLOUDS
This shows being able to stay on course, not allowing distractions or difficult or confusing issues to deter you from your destination. Perhaps you need to rise above and transcend the more nitty-gritty realities of earthly existence and its difficulties, just be aware that you may not be seeing the complete picture very clearly sometimes. If you take special notice, you may be able to see through illusions, seeing past the surface appearances to things that others miss. You may be able to rely on your spiritual, creative or intellectual skills to take you above and beyond those things that others have to deal with. However, you may also be evading the real truth.
Keywords: Elevated views. Always seeing the best in people and things. Peace and tranquility. The longing for transcendence. Not seeing limitations. Being in a refined "head space". Mastery. Flight, planes, pilots. Avoidance of time constraints. Pollyanna attitudes. Free flights of fantasy and escapism. The need for accurate navigation. Being in charge of the controls. Seeking higher truths. Maps. Compasses. Global satellite positioning. Clouds. Mist and fog. Hang-gliding. Don't "over-control" like a novice pilot. Stay loose enough from the flow that you can observe it, modify, and improve it. Donald Rumsfeld

Isolating oneself. Completely missing the point. Feeling high and mighty and above everyone else, particularly with intellectual skills. Wrong turns. Missing the signs. Feeling like you're living in a fog. Disconnecting from others, leading to isolation. Losing the plot. Taking huge risks. One's head being separate from the body. No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings. William Blake Flying might not be all plain sailing, but the fun of it is worth the price. Amelia Earhart

Pluto is on Capricorn 15: IN A HOSPITAL, THE CHILDREN'S WARD IS FILLED WITH TOYS
This Symbol shows the need to heal, calm, soothe and repair the lives of those who need help, comfort and shelter. In times of healing there can be simple pleasures to raise the spirits, whether it’s of “Children” or people of any age. The “Toys” in the “Hospital” can be healing tools of any kind – it does not matter what type or modality; if they bring relief and joy to someone’s life, they fill a need. There is also a need for caring shows of affectionate concern. Simple things done in times of healing can bring great relief to all. Sometimes it’s a smile, a special treat or soothing words of encouragement these are more healing than one can imagine.
With Pluto here, issues such as Health Care being enacted come up. There can also be a sense of control and manipulation around issues of health. We have been seeing this with concerns about disease, and some of these got a little out of hand with the measles 'scare'.

'Laws' relate to the culture of the time and will vary as technology and society changes, but the 'Prophet' is able to manifest 'Laws' that will apply not just for his time, but also for times to come.
This shows being able to live life by a set of “New Laws”, or, to make a new set of laws that better suits your life and place in the scheme of things. This pictures revelations of spirit and truth. It is important to manifest these truths and laws and to integrate them into your everyday life. Codifying the ways of humankind can help us understand the limitations of our earthly existence.

The Moon's North Node is on Libra 6: A MAN WATCHES HIS IDEALS TAKING A CONCRETE FORM BEFORE HIS INNER VISION
'A Man Watches His Ideals Taking a Concrete Form Before His Inner Vision'. This person has had the knowledge or insight to know what he wants, or what he wishes to accomplish, and it is now materializing in front of him—it is 'Taking a Concrete Form Before His Inner Vision'. As the 'Vision' unfolds, so do the things that he's wanted. He will see, realize and understand that dreaming of and working on future possibilities often does indeed, in time, bring them into current realities.
The node is traversing over the Super Galactic Center over the next six months. This is wonderful as it gives us the ability to strike out for those things we truly want. I have written more about this. Click here to read my article about this fabulous transit. It only happens for a few months every nine years, so it's another opportunity to really connect in with the Law Of Attraction.

Making things happen. Seeing things take shape and form. Clairvoyance. Film making. Writing and getting published. The power of manifestation. Solidification. Builders. Sculptures. Dreams.

The Moon's South Node is on Aries 6: A SQUARE BRIGHTLY LIGHTED ON ONE SIDE
'A Square Brightly Lighted on One Side' is a Symbol of containment, walls and boundaries. A four-sided structure can lead to feeling contained, boxed in, trapped or claustrophobic in a place or situation. However, the 'Square' of this Symbol is not completely walled in; it is being lit up 'On One Side', which shows there are solutions and a way out. It indicates creative solutions are at hand, if one will turn their attention to that possibility.
Keywords: Illuminated solutions that provide ways out of tight situations. Having to put up walls to protect or defend versus taking down the barriers. Putting all your eggs in one basket. Feeling fully contained. Walls and fences. Boxes. Understanding the borders of one's activities. Looking for stabilization. Lighting up dark corners. Sunshine. Stepping outside the square or feeling there is no square. Moving out. Windows and doors. Rubik's Cube.
The Caution: Surrendering, feeling trapped. Seeing only one side. Bouncing around, feeling like there's no way out. Internal struggles that prevent seeing solutions. Not acknowledging or expressing true feelings. Desperately wanting to escape tight situations. Fear of ambush. Fear of attack from behind. Claustrophobia. Padded cells.
