Astrology October 28, 2014: Sun Trines Neptune

“I am realistic – I expect miracles.” Wayne Dyer

COSMIC WATCH:

Today’s “Sun trine Neptune” aspect can truly be very “inspiring” for us, if we let it. The word “inspiration” literally means to be in spirit. Neptune symbolizes “Spirit” or our connection with “The Infinite.” Ideally, Sun-Neptune makes us feel very much on purpose (Sun) with our Divine Roots (Neptune). Or, as Esther Hicks would say – speaking for Abraham – we are now aligned with “the Real You (Neptune) behind the you.” Granted, this is a short-term aspect that only lasts, a couple of days; but sometimes, it only takes one thought or idea, or a chance encounter, to turn a life around. Too, the Sun is in “transformative” Scorpio, in its trine to Neptune.

Wayne Dyer, who has perhaps written more books on self-development and spiritual growth than anyone else on the planet, including 20 New York Times bestsellers, fittingly, has his natal Sun in a very close trine to his natal Neptune,  suggesting that he is naturally more attuned to being “plugged into” Source Energy, or whatever you wish to call, our Higher Nature. In The Power of Intention, Wayne writes that one of his secrets for success and inner peace is to “treat yourself as if you already are what you’d like to become.” In other words, to begin with the end in mind.

The Sun-Neptune energy, today, also potentially helps all of us, at least temporarily, with this envisioning process, since Neptune governs our imagination and creativity, our inner artist. Sculptor and painter Michelangelo is another person who had his natal Sun closely trining Neptune. Also, remember what he said about the angel: “I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” Today would be an excellent time to put together a “vision board,” or a collage of images, words, phrases that represents our self and our future. Also, highly recommended would be prayer or meditation, as a way of helping us to tune inward.

Possibly a “shadow side” to the Sun-Neptune influence, if there is one, might be to “over-imagine” or fall prey (Neptune) to worst case scenarios, especially with the Sun passing through “dark” Scorpio, the sign of extremes and crisis points. Specifically, what comes to mind here is the present-day concern over the ebola virus (Scorpio). Too, while there may be some fear (and ignorance) around this illness, a growing awareness of how best to deal with this issue, is evolving every day, and that is a very good thing. By the way, Scorpio is also the sign of medical research and breakthroughs.

Question for Today: What do you see for yourself when you begin with “the end” in mind?

Astrology October 27, 2014: Venus Trines Neptune

“Oh! that gentleness! how far more potent is it than force!” Charlotte Bronte

COSMIC WEATHER: 

“Relationship” Venus is trining “magical” Neptune in Pisces, today (2:48 pm EDT), the planet of illusion and imagination. Also, spirituality. And, because Venus and the Sun are still close together to each other, in “regenerative” Scorpio, the “purposeful” Sun will also be trining Neptune, early tomorrow (5:49 am EDT). The 120-degree trine aspect means that the energies are flowing smoothly or harmoniously between these planets – kind of like they’re doing a slow, graceful, shimmering dance with each other.

Because Neptune’s “transcendent” ray is so prominent now, we may want to focus more of our attention on the human “being” part of our nature – and less on our “doing” side. Or, as the late spiritual teacher Osho once put it: ”Be – don’t try to become.”

The “Venus-Neptune” and “Sun-Neptune” aspects also help to inspire our idealism and romanticism. Instead of division now, we are longing to see the underlying unity. We are also inclined to look for the very best in others, which is something that is more possible to do when we opt to suspend our judgment of how others should behave or act.

Today, and tomorrow, are also excellent for any kind of creative outlets, including photography, dance, painting, writing. Also, for volunteering, engaging in random acts of kindness, and philanthropic pursuits. Too, with Neptune governing dreams, it’s a time when we may want to pay closer attention to the content of our dreams, perhaps scrutinizing them for special messages or inspiration. I remember reading about Keith Richards, a while back, and learning that he got the melody for Satisfaction during a dream.

Question for Today: What makes you feel really connected to the world around you?

Astrology October 26, 2014: Mars Enters Capricorn

, , , , ,

If people knew how hard I had to work to gain my mastery, it would not seem so wonderful at all.“ Michelangelo

COSMIC WATCH:

Today, Mars, the planet of action and desire, moves into “practical” and “ambitious” Capricorn (6:43 am EDT), the last of the “grounded” Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) and the last of the “initiating” Cardinal Signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn).

Mars is in its “exaltation” in Saturn-ruled Capricorn, meaning that it matures, or comes “fully into its own” here. Mars in Capricorn is great news for all of us, as it can really motivate and inspire us to get “down to business,” with respect to making our goals and dreams a reality. Mars in Capricorn is highly disciplined, persistent, resourceful, and realistic. A perfect archetype for Mars, in this sign, would be that of a marathon runner. And, no doubt about it: we’re prepared to “go the distance” now!

“If you have built castles in the air (Mars in Sagittarius), your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations (Mars in Capricorn) under them.” Henry David Thoreau

Mars stays in Capricorn until December 5.

Too, as a matter of full disclosure: I have my natal Mars in Capricorn, in my 10th house, at 7 degrees. It’s also conjunct my Capricorn Midheaven and the ruling planet of my birth chart.

Question for Today: Actually, today’s question is a “fill in the blank.” I know I would be way ahead of the game, if only I could get myself to __________.

Famous October 26 Birthdays: Hillary Clinton, Keith Urban, Sasha Cohen, Francois Mitterrand

“Fail to plan, plan to fail.” Hillary Clinton.

By the way, Hillary has her natal Mars in “authoritative” and “self-confident” Leo the Lion, ideally endowing her with great leadership and executive ability. Mars is also exactly conjunct “strategic” Pluto, in her chart, suggesting that she has a real talent for “sizing things up.” Also, for “turning things around.” Too, it suggests that she ALWAYS does her homework, in advance, before she ever makes a move. A good archetype for her might be “the alchemist.” Mars-Pluto also poises her to fight to the bitter end. Would definitely not want to get on her bad side! Just sayin’. :)

Enjoy your Sunday! It’s a beautiful fall day where I am. So grateful to be alive.

Astrology October 25, 2014: Mercury Stations Direct

Tags

, , , , , ,

“Truly successful decision-making relies on a balance between deliberate and instinctive thinking.” Malcolm Gladwell

COSMIC WATCH:

Mercury, the thinker, stations direct today in “relationship” Libra (3:17 pm EDT). When a planet “stations,” it appears “motionless” in the sky – behaving kind of like a stalled car, alongside the roadway. It is also thought that only when Mercury finally moves beyond its “shadow phase” on November 9 – or the original degree in which it turned retrograde – will “clarity” finally return to our thought processes and decision-making, as only then will Mercury have completed the “full retro trek” of the landscape.

Lovable Venus, the ruler of Libra, is also, again, a major player today, in the cosmic scheme of things, seemingly enjoying official “rock star” status with her exact conjunction with the sultry Scorpio Sun (3:31 am EDT). Hopefully, this alignment aids us in our “power of attraction.”

Assertive Mars is also at the urgent “anaretic” degree of Sagittarius, shifting into “ambitious” Capricorn, tomorrow. Mars at the end of Sadge, which represents our beliefs and convictions, can poise us to take some kind of “last minute action” in order to show others exactly what it is that we hold in high regard, or what is, perhaps, most meaningful to us. It could be, too, that we feel extra pressure to take a stand on things. One thing that we do want to avoid, though, is fanaticism, or a “holier-than-thou” stance, which could backfire – especially with Mercury stationing direct, some of our ideas could be misconstrued.

Question for Today: What is your overriding belief about the world?

Astrology October 24, 2014: Moon Continues in “Passionate” Scorpio

Tags

, , , , , , ,

“Better pass boldly into that other world, in the full glory of some passion, than fade and wither dismally with age.” James Joyce

COSMIC WATCH:

Recent studies show that when we have a passion for an activity, be it a sport or a hobby, we will not only engage in that activity on a regular basis – and perceive that outlet as something that we highly value – the activity will also become an inherent part of how we define our self.

Also, when we have what is described as a “harmonious passion” for something, we are more likely to be able to regulate this passion, internally, and hence, add to our feeling of well-being, which can positively impact other areas of our life. Too, a flip side here: when we have an “obsessive passion,” or a passion that starts to control us, then any positivity that we may get from engaging in this activity, tends to quickly evaporate – and this passion can actually end up creating “ill-being,” and interfere with our other life activities.

I mention this here today because we are still very much in the range of the “bull’s-eye” of yesterday’s “intense” Scorpio Eclipse, the astrological sign that is the prototype or template for “passion.” It is in fixed, water-sign Scorpio where our emotions can quickly morph into, seemingly, almost an almighty, indomitable force – for good or bad – and, right along with this, our passions. Especially, our romantic passions! And, perhaps, especially now, with Venus, the Goddess of Love, also swimming through the seductive waters of Scorpio, alongside the Sun.

The Moon remains in Scorpio, all day, today, and becomes especially REVVED UP, this afternoon (2:16 pm EDT), when it sextiles “regenerative, redemptive” Pluto, the modern-day Ruler of Scorpio. Moon-Pluto aspects often show us how to resuscitate something; how to breathe life back into what was once, perhaps, perceived of as dead, bust, or simply a lost cause. Moon-Pluto can be very healing, at its best. Also, this type of energy can help us to locate lost, hidden, buried, or missing items. It is thought to be excellent for any kind of investigative work – including espionage or spying! Maybe we need to retrieve the binoculars and that old sixties trench coat from storage! :)

Question for Today: What are you most passionate about and how does that passion affect your everyday life?

Astrology October 23, 2014: New Moon Solar Eclipse in Scorpio

Tags

, , , , ,

“It is not death that a man should fear, but he should fear never beginning to live.” Marcus Aurelius

COSMIC WATCH:      

We experience a big “cosmic shift” today as the Sun, Venus, and Moon cascade into “emotionally-deep” Scorpio, with a “Partial Solar Eclipse” also occurring at “0 degrees” of Scorpio (5:56 pm EDT). Solar Eclipses are generally regarded as “amped up” New Moons, heralding changes and new beginnings. Some astrologers also view eclipses as times when we’re more apt to receive “consciousness downloads.”

Scorpio, the eighth sign of the zodiac, is basically where we learn to make “serious eyeball contact” with our fears. Scorpio is associated with self-mastery and empowerment. It also rules such things as intimacy, shared resources, the values of others, death and rebirth, purging and recycling efforts, taxes, surgery, and insurance matters.

Today’s Eclipse has an “endearing” or “supportive” quality to it because Venus, the Goddess of Love and Beauty, is sitting right alongside, or is conjunct, the Scorpio Sun and Moon. Venus hopefully helps us to embrace the shadow side of ourselves, while also maybe inspiring us to get along better with each other. The Venus conjunction also does likely mean that love and relationship issues are going to be front and center now. Relationship transformations or renewals, are also very possible, in keeping with the regenerative nature of Scorpio.

Spiritual Neptune, the higher octave of Venus, and the ruler of our imagination, is also forming a harmonious trine to the Eclipse. This otherworldly influence not only helps to make us more compassionate, it can also assist us with envisioning the life ahead that we want for ourselves. Too, with Neptune governing our nocturnal dreams, we may want to pay closer attention to what our dreams are saying to us now, especially over these next few days.

Question for Today: What might you say to someone to encourage them to get past their fears?

Famous October 23 Birthdays: Johnny Carson, Sarah Bernhardt, Weird Al Yankovic

“Just be yourself — it’s the only way it can work.” Johnny Carson

Happy Eclipse blessings!

Astrology October 22, 2014 – Last Call for Libra

Tags

, , ,

“I unconsciously decided that, even if it wasn’t an ideal world, it should be so and painted only the ideal aspects of it – pictures in which there are no drunken slatterns or self-centered mothers . . . only foxy grandpas who played baseball with kids and boys who fished from logs and got up circuses in the back yard.” Norman Rockwell

COSMIC WATCH:

This is the final full day of the stellium of four planets (Sun, Moon, Venus, and Mercury) and the North Node in “idealistic” Libra. Perhaps a good time to carefully reflect upon or evaluate precisely where we’re positioned, right now, along the continuum landscape, with respect to manifesting our hopes and dreams in the real world – as well as discerning what kind of gaps or loopholes remain for us to serendipitously conquer or fill in as we journey forward with our soul’s grand gig.

I also think a potential challenge for us here, today, with all this “idealizing” Libra energy, is that there is a risk that we become a bit too overwhelmed by some of the aspects of the all “too perfect picture” that we may have wistfully concocted or sketched out for ourselves in our head – i.e. sort of like falling victim to the sanguine “Norman Rockwell portrait” for our lives. Too, we do have the Sun and Venus in Libra, today, sesquiquadrate to “wounded healer” Chiron, which may also simultaneously make us more aware of our perceived shortcomings, wounds, fears, etc.

Of course, all of this energy pattern changes, big time, tomorrow, with the arrival of the New Moon Eclipse in “cleansing, transformative” Scorpio.

Question For Today: What dream is “closest to your heart” that you will you never let die?

Astrology October 21, 2014: Moon Enters Cooperative Libra

Tags

, , , , , ,

“Nothing truly valuable can be achieved except by the unselfish cooperation of many individuals.” Albert Einstein

COSMIC WATCH:

The Moon’s entrance into Venus-ruled, “cooperative” Libra (7:12 am EDT) encourages us to collaborate our efforts with others toward a common goal versus “going it alone,” a scenario that usually more naturally unfolds when we make a sincere effort to let others know that we value and respect their input and ideas. Philanthropist Jon M. Huntsman Sr. also wisely reminds us here that, “Life is not a game of Solitaire; people depend on one another.”

In addition to the Moon, we also have the Sun, Mercury, and Venus in “other-oriented” Libra, with the Sun and Venus getting ready to close in on the “anaretic” or 29th degree of Libra, within the next 24 hours. When planets are nearing the end of a sign, they are thought to have more of an “urgent” quality about them. Also, it’s often a time when we feel compelled to take “sudden action” on a matter – with the action, in keeping, with the nature of the planet at the anaretic degree.

The “Sun” symbolizes power, status, and the ego; “Venus” rules relationships, beauty, fashion, values, and money. Libra is represented by the “scales of balance” (justice) and governs the courts, marriage, and partnerships, and symbolizes, among other things, diplomats, judges, and counselors.

It could be that with the Sun and Venus, anaretic in Libra, some last-minute efforts are made to appease or placate others now; or sudden action is taken to enlist the support of others toward a cause; or overtures may be undertaken to preserve or restore the peace and balance in a relationship or delicate situation.

Too, on a collective level, with Venus and the Sun nearing the anaretic degree, there is the very sad news that Oscar De La Renta, the iconic fashion designer – a “Libra” profession – has died at the age of 82.  De La Renta recently designed George Clooney’s bride Amal Alamuddin’s wedding gown and has dressed every first lady since Jackie Kennedy. De La Renta had his natal Sun in Cancer, at the anaretic “29 degree” mark, with the Sun in an “out-of-sign” conjunction to “stylistic” Venus in “glamorous” Leo. Sun-Venus aspects denote artistry and creativity, in general. De La Renta was also, reportedly, a huge supporter and patron of the arts.

Question for Today: Do you think clothes “make a person?”

Astrology September 26, 2014: Libra Moon Conjuncts Mercury

Tags

, , , , , , ,

“A beautiful thing happens when we start paying attention to each other. It is by participating more in your relationship that you breathe life into it.” Steve Maraboli

COSMIC WATCH:

The “sentimental” Moon wraps up her stay in “social” Libra, this morning, with a conjunction to communicator Mercury. This may be a positive time to share or discuss our feelings with our mate or partner, or fellow comrades – especially if we’re also willing to hear what they have to say, as well. Too, this influence can be great for doing any personal journaling, or for writing creative copy that emotionally moves (Moon) others. Also, since this conjunction is occurring in balanced and fair-minded Libra, this Moon-Mercury energy may favor diplomatic efforts. It’s also important to note that Mercury is now at the end of Libra – at the anaretic degree – suggesting more of an “urgent nature” to communications or negotiations.

The Moon’s shift into “passionate” Scorpio (10:29 am EDT) also potentially adds a healthy dose of resolve or determination to whatever we choose to focus on today, with the Scorpio Moon characteristically known for its “staying power.” Late writer and renown management consultant Peter Drucker once noted that “commitment” is the catalyst for making our goals or intentions take shape. He said, “Unless commitment is made, there are only promises and hopes; but no plans.”  I also think that, sometimes, we shy away from committing our self to something because we’re unsure or unclear of its value to us.

Some celebrities born with the Moon in Scorpio: Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce Knowles, Lady Gaga, Mariah Carey, Miley Cyrus, Charlie Chaplin, Bruce Lee, Elizabeth Taylor.

Question for Today: What are you most committed to achieving?

Also, I wanted to extend congratulations to retiring Yankee Shortstop Derek Jeter for giving baseball fans a truly electrifying and historic “Jupiter trine Uranus” moment at Yankee Stadium, last night.

Astrology September 25, 2014: Expansive Jupiter Trines Innovative Uranus

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

“If you do not see light at the end of the tunnel, consider it an opportunity to create an opening yourself, wherever you want.” Ashok Kallarakkal

COSMIC WATCH:

Yesterday, we had the New Moon in Libra, giving us a chance to reset things on the relationship front. Today, the Moon continues in “relational” Libra and it is joined by a dynamic fire trine from “expansive” Jupiter in Leo to “innovative” Uranus in Aries (2:19 pm EDT). This 120-degree trine aspect is the first of three official meet-ups between Jupiter and Uranus that will be concluding in June of next year, as Jupiter soon begins to move retrograde, back through Leo. The present Jupiter-Uranus influence will continue to be felt, for the next few days.

Whenever Jupiter and Uranus align there’s always the bright prospect that nearly anything is possible, as “optimistic” Jupiter, governing our beliefs and personal philosophy, enlarges whatever it touches, and when it’s aligned with “out of the box” thinker Uranus, the planet of change, technology, genius, and intuition, we will often experience or witness sudden breakthroughs in consciousness, that serve to upend or supplant our limited belief systems and fears. Also, events can occur, both individually and collectively, that end up radically changing or altering our way of life, along with our views or ideas of what’s possible for us to achieve, as a people.

For example, when the Apollo 11 spacecraft landed the first humans – Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin – on the Moon, on July 20, 1969, Jupiter and Uranus were exactly conjunct at 0 degrees of Libra! Neil Armstrong would later become the first person to step on the Moon, a few hours later, on July 21 – an electrifying and memorable experience for everyone watching it on their TV. Mars also happened to be in the long-distance travel sign of Sagittarius then, where it is today. Too, for those of us who were alive, back then, the Moon landing was not only a spectacular breakthrough in space travel – it was also a huge game-changer in our overall perceptions of “outer space,” as a realistic, doable new frontier for humans to gallantly explore.

Also, when entrepreneur and inventor Steve Jobs was born, Jupiter and Uranus were in a close conjunction in the sign of Cancer. In retrospect, a potent marker in the development of the new “information age,” with the internet also poised to become yet another great frontier for curious earthlings to investigate. Many, of course, regard Steve Jobs as the greatest inventor of our age – with “inventing” a Uranus-ruled profession. He is reportedly listed on Google Patents as the primary or co-inventor of over 240 patents – perhaps a testament, also, to the “prolific” nature of Jupiter’s influence here. The following quote by Steve Jobs also seems to really sum up the potential “paradigm-shifting” sentiment of the present “Jupiter-Uranus” energy: “Everyone here has the sense that right now is one of those moments when we are influencing the future.”

On a practical level, Jupiter-Uranus is excellent, creative energy for helping us to break out of our ruts, with the idea of change (Uranus), seeming far less daunting to us now. We are also potentially more willing and receptive to imagining and crafting new possibilities (Jupiter) for ourselves. Also, fresh, new intuitive (Uranus) insights can inspire us to make great big leaps of faith (Jupiter) forward now. American surgeon and author of Psycho-Cybernetics (1960), Maxwell Maltz, once observed that “moving forward” is a way for all us to consolidate or strengthen our lives. He said, “Man maintains his balance, poise, and sense of security only as he is moving forward.”

Question for Today: Where in your life do you really need a “breakthrough” – and how might that breakthrough “turn your life around?”
