Ophiuchus and Luna


March 21st the waning moon is in the sign of Libra with Saturn dictating some ridiculous cosmic rules. Instead I am focused on the weekend, the 22 through the 24th of March. Here the moon will move from Scorpius into Sagittarius.

Wait a minute don’t forget between these two signs, there is Ophiuchus also known as the unpopular 13th sign of the zodiac. He has come to my attention this weekend so I am giving him some time of day.

Mythology tells us he is a man holding on to a snake. He is also known as Serpentarius, the serpent bearer. He may be holding the Rod of Asclepius which is also known as the great Caduceus. All this comes to us from way back when, from those ancient Sumerian Gods.

I read recently that astrophysics is based on the language of math and astrology on years of knowledge. We learn and listen to science and to the myths that blend from culture to culture, but no matter what theory or myth you may be studying it always moves on, off to another path or breaks off into the overwhelming cosmos altogether.

Regardless, this weekend may be very auspicious for us. The moon is turning her back to Saturn and listening to the whispering of the mystic’s power. Good medicine and intuition will rule this weekend, as well as some marvelous time for healing.
