[4:34] Greetings from Listener Karen!
[5:26 Moon Report! The Mercury-ruled Gemini Moon squares Neptune today (3:21 PM PDT) at 26°35’ Gemini-Pisces. It’s Void-of-Course for 6 ½ hours before it enters Cancer (9:59 PM PDT). Multitasking is favored over getting really intensely focused on one thing, but be careful about overdoing it.
[7:44] Thursday is Jupiter’s Day. Its name is derived from the Norse God, Thor, often associated with Jupiter.
[8:15] Jupiter compels us to share our thoughts and beliefs, teaching, lecturing, writing for publication. Jupiter also supports adventures to unfamiliar territory. In the traditional home, Thursday was marketing day, so spread your wealth around!
[9:16] Consider honoring Jupiter by wearing Jupiterian colors of turquoise and purple and/or his gemstones which are turquoise, topaz and lapis lazuli.
[10:20] Greetings from Listener Shellie!
[11:09] A closer look at the Sabian symbols. The Sabian symbols are 360 symbolic images and phrases, one for each degree of the zodiac. They were channeled by psychic Elsie Wheeler and recorded by astrologer Marc Edmund Jones in 1925 in San Diego, California.
[11:55] Astrologers use the symbols as a tool of divination, as points of focus for meditation, even as writing prompts, and they can take us into a birth chart in a little more imaginative way.
[13:22] Josh’s question about using the Sabian symbols (and…ox entrails?). Check out Lynda Hill’s book, 360 Degrees of Wisdom, for more information about Sabian symbols.
[17:10] And that’s a wrap for the fourth day of The Fourth Annual Podcast! Make your donation at BigSkyAstropod.com, and join April again tomorrow morning for another episode!
