“There was an owl
who lived in an oak.
The more he heard,
the less he spoke;
the less he spoke,
the more he heard-
We all should be
like that wise old bird.” English nursey rhyme
The Moon waxes full Sunday March 12th at 22 degrees of Virgo. The Sun will be conjunct both Chiron and Pallas Athena at this time. In mythology Pallas Athena- the goddess of justice and wisdom- was known for her strategic approach to conflict and for her invincibility in battle. The City of Athens was named after her and she brought a civilizing influence to humanity by teaching how to peacefully resolve disputes and uphold the law with compassionate justice and wisdom.
Owls are known for their acute vision in the darkness and Pallas Athene is often depicted with an owl on her shoulder. This served as a reminder of what she could not see or what she might have overlooked.
The veils are thin at the time of the Full Moon and Chiron, the asteroid associated with the journey towards wholeness through a process of wounding and healing is powerful at this time. It provides a good opportunity to look at your personal journey towards wholeness and to get a glimpse of some information about a missing piece or fragment that may shed the light on the path forward – particularly information related to the emotional life, creativity or spirituality. Saturn the taskmaster is nearby so it is likely any new initiatives related to this will soon encounter challenges. It is wise to take concrete steps and strengthen your resolve.
The Sabian symbol associated with this time is, ” A lion tamer rushes fearlessly into the arena.”
