can we say that the new phase is Aries however the new phase semi sextile is associated with Taurus?
because the crescent phase is a Taurus-like phase, even though most of it correlates to the Gemini part of the zodiac.
here is how Jeffrey described what you are asking about:
What we want to keep in mind here is that the new phase evolves through time. This is now how we start measuring aspects. If you have two planets in a semi-sextile relationship, 30 degrees, yet still in the new phase, this symbolism clearly suggests that the individual, prior to this life, has already had a couple of experiences - maybe a couple of lives, who knows - involving this new phase process. In other words it is not utterly new. Because it suggests that there has been something before, the semi-sextile tends to have the effect of checking the pure instinctual process of the new phase. Prior to the semi-sextile, there is the instinct for unchecked action, random-like, but through a process of action/reaction prior to this life, the individual has already begun to become somewhat aware instinctually, of course, but aware of what this new purpose is evolutionarily speaking and thus the knowledge implied allows the semi-sextile to have a checking action or narrowing of experience.
There is still the need to initiate action. There is still the action/reaction process. There is still much which is unformulated and yet the person has more of a sense of undefined direction, i.e. to narrow the randomness. The person may have unconscious memories of coming through the conjunction because in any life 80% of your thoughts, beliefs, values, interpretation and perception patterns, self-relatedness patterns are determined by subconscious memories. This is itself, based on that which has come before. The memory is in the Soul and is the sum-total of all that which has come before.
If I have had two planets in a new phase condition prior to this life and I now find them in a semi-sextile
relationship, this constitutes subconscious memories. This, of itself, narrows the experience field , not happily so, however because new phase wants to be instinctive. So the tension of the semi-sextile is a tension based on feeling checked or constrained. It is the tension, for example, between Aries/Taurus. That is a natural semi-sextile and I think most of us would agree that Aries of itself wants absolute freedom and the instinct in Taurus is to consolidate. This new phase condition creates an irritant. It is like the competing archetypes of water/fire. Water tends to have the effect of dampening the spirit of fire. So the semi-sextile is going to narrow, to focus, to stabilize and to begin the process of forethought prior to action. This is going to have a natural polarization in the full phase inconjunct. One of the meanings of the full phase inconjunct is to understand the meaning of the personal limitations as measured against the social environment. What you can and cannot be, what you can and cannot become, what you are and are not. This can correlate to a social function. You can see how this is mirrored in this new phase semi-sextile. It is the very first aspect to begin the checking of excessively willful egocentric expression - to begin the initial experience and, yes, humiliation, of limitation. When a baby is born, it knows no limitations, it demands all. The biological instinct in the parents is to provide all - it is utterly catered to. However, there does come a time in which that baby learns, semi-sextile, new phase.
So you see, there is a Taurus quality to the last 15 degrees of the new phase. And yet that Taurus plays out within the Aries nature of the New Phase, not a straight Taurus archetype at all. Whereas the Taurus urge to consolidate comes to fruition in the Crescent phase. And that Crescent phase, correlated to the zodiac, contains all 30 degrees of Gemini. Yet the whole thing is Taurus-like. Then the New Phase, which correlates by degrees to Cancer in the zodiac, is described as Gemini-like - Crisis in Action - many choices/possibilities present themselves, and the person is at a loss to know which one to take, which one is the right one. You cab see from this that the correlations to the zodiac are not exact by degree in the cycle of phases and aspects. It is a different system, Ari. You have to accept this and stop letting your brain try to make what seem like logical correlations when you are being told that they just are not there, not in the specific ways you want them to be.
