“The hardest thing in the world to understand is the income tax.” Albert Einstein
Albert Einstein was born under the unworldly or otherworldly sign of Pisces and could often be seen wandering -seemingly confused or lost- on the streets of Philadelphia. The unworldliness of the sign can often indicate imaginative, creative or spiritual brilliance although it sometimes does not interface well with mundane affairs. Einstein wrote,”Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited whereas imagination embraces the whole world, stimulating progress and giving birth to evolution.”
He deeply regretted that his discoveries led to the invention of the atomic bomb.
The Sabian symbol for Monday’s Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius is, “A big business man at his desk, ” indicating it is a good time to get organized and take action in areas of your life or your work you might normally tend to resist.
Saturn has been trining the North Node for awhile now indicating that taking a step by step approach to long term goals will pay off in the long term. Best to break things down to the nuts and bolts level. There is a lot of fiery, passionate energy now which can lead to highly charged actions but avoiding impulsiveness and taking a more moderate approach is likely to result in success.
In general this eclipse in the sign of Aquarius indicates a good time for bridge building and collaboration given appropriate boundaries are in place. It can be a more sensitive time with Venus in Cancer. The Sabian symbol for Venus is, “A small naked girl bends over a sparkling pond, trying to catch a small fish.” It speaks of innocence as the young girl tries to contain something of a fleeting or elusive nature. It is a reminder that although you might not fully understand some events in your life it is wise to keep a sense of play or mystery as events unfold. But a young girl obviously can also be naive and inexperienced about what life might bring so it is wise to keep appropriate boundaries in appropriate settings – not unnecessarily walling yourself off of by being paranoid, but protecting yourself in a savvy way given the circumstances.
Another symbol for this time is,”Children on a swing in the safety of an old oak tree.”
