(Today’s Planetary Aspects: Moon conjunct Pluto, 5:55 am; Mercury sextile Uranus, 2:50 pm; Moon square Uranus, 3:58 pm; Moon quinqunx Mercury, 4:07 pm; Moon sextile Chiron, 6:04 pm; Moon quinqunx Venus, 8:06 pm. All times EDT.) 

Cosmic Quote of the Day: “Begin challenging your own assumptions. Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in a while, or the light won’t come in.” Alan Alda

Each of us excels in storytelling, particularly the stories that we tell ourselves about ourselves, and what’s possible for our lives. Often, too, we readily accept these personal accounts as the gospel truth when, in reality, they may be closer to fiction.

Today’s Energy:

Moon conjunct Pluto, 5:55 am: Even though it’s early morning, we awake with a desire to get to the bottom of things.

Mercury sextile Uranus, 2:50 pm: Here is B-R-E-A-K-T-H-R-O-U-G-H relief fast on its way to us to confront some of those storylines in our head. This is perfect energy for precipitating mental shifts as our curiosity is more fully engaged. We naturally are more oriented toward questioning our assumptions, at this time, including questioning the unquestioned answers!

Also a great influence for meeting and conversing with new people who harbor very different views from our own, which can also serve to subtly rock our world. This aspect additionally favors dealing with any technology-related matter. This alignment will linger around for the next day or so.

Moon square Uranus, 3:58 pm: Departing from our routine, for a while, helps to recharge our batteries and makes us better appreciate what we have going on.

Moon quinqunx Mercury, 4:07 pm: Our heart and head may be at a temporary impasse. Best to think before we speak, and formulate our words clearly. Also, avoid prejudging things.

Moon sextile Chiron, 6:04 pm: There’s more finesse and sensitivity in knowing how to assuage pain or handle emotional issues.

Moon quinqunx Venus, 8:06 pm: Letting go our expectations of how others should behave, or how a situation should be, makes the present moment richer and more enjoyable.

Famous July 2 Birthdays: Lindsay Lohan, Thurgood Marshall, Richard Petty, Pierre Cardin, Jerry Hall, Herman Hesse, Imelda Marcos

“We are sun and moon, dear friend; we are sea and land. It is not our purpose to become each other; it is to recognize each other, to learn to see the other and honor him for what he is: each the other’s opposite and complement.” Herman Hesse, Narcissus and Goldman

Enjoy your Thursday!

Astrology July 1, 2015: Full Moon in Capricorn, Cosmic Quote of the Day

Full Moon

(Today’s Planetary Aspects: Venus conjunct Jupiter, 3:51 am; Moon opposite Mars, 1:32 pm; Sun trine Neptune, 5:10 pm; Moon sextile Neptune, 9:59 pm; Moon opposite Sun, 10:20 pm. Moon is in Sagittarius until 5:11 am, when it enters Capricorn; All times EDT.)

Cosmic Quote of the Day: “If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.” Henry Ford

Isn’t it interesting that when we each focus on becoming more of what we already are, success is something that becomes almost a non-issue for us?

Today’s Energy:

A Full Moon in “ambitious” Capricorn occurs at 10:20 pm tonight. Full Moons bring heightened awareness, thereby allowing us to cop new perspectives. The Full Moon in Capricorn specifically affords us a chance to focus on creating more of a work/life balance – never an easy task! This is an excellent time to revisit those goals that we eagerly set, at the start of the year, and evaluate how we are faring with them. Are we still wanting to tow the line, or do we maybe need to make a course correction? Or, possibly we have gotten sidetracked, the last few months, and need to get back on track now with the personal vision that we hold for ourselves. A Capricorn Full Moon also puts the spotlight on those traditional elements that accompany our public image such as reputation, leadership ability, organizational skills, and career success.

Lovable Venus also exactly conjuncts benefic Jupiter today (3:51 am), an influence that has been building in strength, for the last few days. This is regarded as one of the most fortuitous, pleasurable, and romantic influences of all as expansive Jupiter, the purveyor of opportunity, magnifies all the best qualities of the charming Venusian energy. This conjunction also helps to re-set the socially reforming, albeit seemingly magical, Jupiter Uranus trine, which is still within a one degree orb from being exact. We tend to see the best in others now and want to do what is in our power to make others happy. Our mood is very warm, friendly and gregarious, although we could get a little carried away with self-indulgent behavior, especially since this influence tends to favor or court lavish celebrations or overtures. Of course, we could also counteract or neutralize this tendency, if we wanted to, by intentionally engaging in random acts of kindness, in an effort to spread the wealth and gaiety around. This aspect remains in effect for a couple of days.

Moon opposite Mars, 1:32 pm. We are poised to meet or achieve our goals, but may need to possibly counteract a tendency toward hypersensitivity, even bullying. Avoiding those who know how to push our buttons, too, is probably a smart strategy now.

Sun trine Neptune, 9:59 pm. This is a highly creative and imaginative aspect that kindles our humanitarian instincts and compassion. We are more willing to take a back seat to others now as our ego needs subside, although we may still need to be vigilant or discerning as to the sincerity of other people’s intentions. In general, this is excellent energy for dissolving differences, implementing peacekeeping measures or truces, both on an individual and a collective level.  Also, quite fittingly here, President Obama is reportedly set to unveil, today, a deal between the U.S. and Cuba that would reopen embassies and restore diplomatic ties that were broken more than 50 years ago (from AOL.com).

Also, Sun trine Neptune is an ideal influence for immersion in spiritual studies, meditation, partaking in retreats, taking trips by the sea, or any type of visioning work. Those who are artistically gifted may also find this energy great for doing photography, painting, sculpting, or watercolor.  This alignment is also, of course, a very nice complement to the loving, very generous in nature, Venus-Jupiter aspect, as they both potentially carry a lot of healing energy within them.  This influence will remain in effect for two or three days.

Famous July 1 Birthdays: Princess Diana, Pamela Anderson, Dan Aykroyd, Deborah Harry, Olivia de Havilland

“Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.” Princess Diana

Full Moon Blessings to you!

Bleeding Heart Flower

(Today’s Planetary Aspects: Moon opposite Mercury, 6:20 am; Moon trine Uranus, 12:01 pm; Moon trine Venus, 1:47 pm; Moon trine Jupiter, 2:18 pm; Moon in Sagittarius goes v/c at 2:18 pm and stays void-of-course until 5:11 am on Wednesday, when it enters Capricorn. All times EDT.)

Cosmic Quote of the Day: “Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

We always have it within us the ability to change the way we look at things, and when we do, the world around us changes accordingly. It is with our perceptions where our real power lies.

Today’s Energy: 

The Moon in inspired Sagittarius is involved in an exciting grand fire trine with liberating Uranus, lovable Venus, and optimistic Jupiter. Generally, this influence can bring about an easing of our circumstances, or a situation in which we have more of a feeling of natural flow in our life. The element of fire makes us feel more alive.

The Moon’s opposition to Mercury, 6:20 am. This is an excellent hour for personal journaling as our we are hearing from both our heart and our head. Also, good for making out our to-do list.

Moon trine Uranus, 12:01 pm. We are ready to venture down the road less traveled. Anything wacky or different appeals to us. New approaches get us unstuck.

Moon trine Venus, 1:47 pm. This is the personification of cooperative energy with a capital C. Also, excellent for any social mingling, romantic encounters or getaways, beautifying projects. A tendency toward lavish expenditures is possible.

Moon trine Jupiter, 2:18 pm. We can envision that mountaintop and are pretty confident we are headed there. Anything we can do to grow our personal world has our attention. This energy also strengthens our convictions and inspires us to spread cheer and goodwill.

Famous June 30 Birthdays: Mike Tyson, Michael Phelps, Lena Horne, Susan Haywood.

“You can’t put a limit on anything. The more you dream, the farther you get.” Michael Phelps

(Today’s Planetary Aspects: Venus trine Uranus; Moon square Neptune; Moon in Sagittarius.)

Cosmic Quote of the Day: “Sometimes we have to meet people where they are, Ollie. Honor their desires, regardless of our own.” Tess Hilmo, With a Name like Love 

It can be a very freeing experience, for all of us, when we find a way to suspend our expectations and judgments of others, and just allow them to gracefully be who they are. One thing that can also help out here is to try to really understand where another person is coming from before forming an opinion of them.

Today’s Energy:

The Moon is in adventurous Sagittarius all day.

The Sagittarius Moon squares idealistic Neptune at 5:12 pm. It may be hard to come down from the clouds now.

Venus trines Uranus, 2:26 am. Uranus has a freeing impact on the Goddess of Love. We seek out novelty or newness in our relationships, and in our leisure activities. This influence also favors creativity and group expression. It will remain in effect for a couple of days.

* All times EDT.

Famous June 29 Birthdays: Gary Busey, Slim Pickens, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.

Stars

(Today’s Planetary Aspects: Moon square Jupiter; Moon conjunct Saturn; Mercury quinqunx Pluto; Moon in Scorpio v/c at 9:50 pm; Moon enters Sagittarius, 11:21 pm. All times EDT.) 

Cosmic Quote of the Day: “To be without some of the things you want is an indispensable part of happiness.”  Bertrand Russell

Much of the time in our culture, we equate happiness and contentment with having more of what we want. Yet, sometimes, an empty cup can be a good thing because it gives us a chance to brew up something new and wildly different.

Today’s Energy:

The Moon’s square to expansive Jupiter in Leo (6:41 am) could possibly hijack our sense of reality and get us caught up in our dreams. Any “over the top” behavior is a real possibility now.

The Moon’s annual monthly conjunction to serious Saturn (9:50 pm) does act as an effective antidote to the Moon Jupiter square, bringing us back swiftly to the steady drumbeat of reality. But, it could also work to blot out our perspective if we focus too much on what is missing in our life, and forget to focus on all the positives that we have going on. With this last aspect, the Moon also goes void-of-course in mysterious Scorpio until 11:21 pm when it enters upbeat Sagittarius.

Intellectual Mercury quinqunx controlling Pluto can get us a little too preoccupied with our thoughts. If we recognize that we are obsessing about something, that should be a clear signal to us to take a time out and regroup.

To Say Goodbye

(Today’s Planetary Aspects: Moon trines Neptune, 9:01 am; Moon sextiles Pluto, 6:06 pm; The Moon is in releasing Scorpio all day; Mercury finishes its shadow period today at 13 degrees of Gemini. All times are EDT.)  

Cosmic Quote of the Day: “Thank God I found the GOOD in goodbye” Beyonce Knowles

Finding the GOOD in goodbye is both an enlightening and uplifting concept because, on the one hand, it propels us to examine the upside aspects of a parting (Scorpio) – something that we might, otherwise, be tempted to forego. Secondly, it blesses or attaches a positive vibration or sentiment to whomever or whatever we are saying goodbye to.

About Today’s Energy: The Moon in Scorpio adds an element of depth and complexity to our perceptions and interactions. An early morning trine to intuitive Neptune (9:01 am) also helps us to adeptly tune into other people’s feelings and desires. Later, the Moon’s sextile to influential Pluto (6:06 pm) can positively re-acquaint us with a sense of our own power and capability, which can, in turn, motivate us to tackle more challenging tasks.  Too, ideally included in this itinerary will be finding some time to partake in de-cluttering or refurbishing projects, which Scorpio energy is so characteristically famous for. This is also an excellent period for sharing intimacy with another, channeling our inner detective, going antiquing, or having a past life reading.

The Ship

(Today’s Planetary Aspects: The Moon is void-or-course in balancing Libra until 1:57 pm when it enters transforming Scorpio; Moon trines initiating Mars in protective Cancer at 5:01 pm. All times posted are for EDT.) 

Cosmic Quote of the Day: “Don’t wait for your ship to come in, swim out to it.” Cathy Hopkins

When we seize the moment, or are otherwise engaged with life, we tend to feel better about ourselves. The mere act of taking action also signals to the subconscious that we interested in our lives, and our future. Taking initiative is also a marvelous way for us to bolster our self-esteem and confidence.

Today, the Moon is void-of-course in Libra until 1:57pm, so for the first half of the day, it is best to continue with or finish projects that we already have in the works, or to use this time period for pausing or reflection. Once the Moon enters investigative Scorpio at 1:57 pm, we have the green light to go ahead with new endeavors. The Scorpio Moon imparts a strong desire to get at the truth. We are also more poised to be led by our passions at this time.

At 5:01 pm, the waxing Scorpio Moon forms a flowing trine to energizing Mars, which is newly installed in security-oriented Cancer. This harmonious aspect may motivate us to take swift, determined action toward our goals. This invigorating influence also gives us a wonderful chance to show off or display our leadership ability. On a personal level, this energy is excellent for building emotional rapport with others as well as for mending or reconciling our relational ties.

Famous June 26 Birthdays: Derek Jeter, Michael Vick, Gretchen Wilson, Eleanor Parker, Pearl S. Buck.

(Today’s Planetary Aspects: The Moon in social Libra trines curious Mercury, squares controlling Pluto, sextiles lovable Venus, opposes rules breaker Uranus, and sextiles philosophical Jupiter. The Moon is Void of Course at 7:22 pm until 1:57 pm on Friday when it enters investigative Scorpio. All times posted are for EDT.)

Cosmic Quote of the Day: “Nothing is ever lost by courtesy. It is the cheapest of pleasures, costs nothing, and conveys much.” Erastus Wiman

Polite behavior is something that most of us appreciate. It is a universal way to quickly convey respect for a person. Studies have also shown that politeness helps to put people at ease, which can go a long way in fostering strong relationships. Today’s gracious Moon in Libra naturally affords us a chance to put on our goodwill ambassador hat, although we may still face a couple diplomatic hurdles along the way via Luna’s square to intense Pluto (7:07 am), which can bring sudden urges to the forefront. Also, the Moon opposes erratic Uranus around the dinner hour (6:20 pm), a time when it might be wise to cut others more slack to do their own thing.

The Moon’s last aspect of the day, a warm sextile to generous Jupiter in Leo (7:22 pm), potentially helps spawn a desire to want to attend to the welfare or betterment of others. It can also put us in a relaxing mood in which we want to seek out fun and pleasurable activities, such as going to a night club, or maybe taking in a movie. Too, it’s a positive period for dealing with women. Additionally, our ability to be persuasive with others, is also enhanced.

Famous June 25 Birthdays: George Michael, Ricky Gervais, June Lockhart, Carly Simon, Sonia Sotomayor.

“I always think it’s interesting to dig a little deeper every time you go to someplace that seems like a revelation or a strong connection to an emotional truth.” Carly Simon

Hungry Bird

(Today’s planetary action: The first quarter Moon in Libra squares the Cancer Sun; Wounded Warrior Chiron stations retrograde in Pisces at 21 degrees; Mars enters Cancer at 9:33 am EDT; Jupiter trines Uranus, ongoing.)

Cosmic Quote of the Day: “Life is not a solo act. It’s a huge collaboration, and we all need to assemble around us the people who care about us and support us in times of strife.” Tim Gunn.

Clearly, none of us can go it alone. Although some of us, at times, may think we can. Just consider, for instance, the many collaborative efforts that often go into simply putting food on our tables, i.e. the involvement by farmers, fishermen, grocers, packagers, truck drivers, food processors, etc. The list goes on. No matter what aspect of life you look at, you’ll usually find that it does take a convergence of energies by many individuals to keep everything afloat. Too, when we are able to gather around us a network of people who really care about us and support us, through thick and thin, that is something that always wondrously resonates within us at the very core of our being and provides us with one of the most endearing sources of comfort and strength we will ever know.

Today, with motivator Mars’ movement into maternal Cancer the Crab, the sign of home and family, where it links up with the life-giving Sun, extra emphasis will be placed on such issues as our roots or ancestry, our connectivity to our tribe, our need to protect or defend our home turf, our desire to care for or comfort those who are close to us, our willingness to express and embrace our emotional nature. There may also be more of a focus on matters concerning real estate, food and cooking, farming or agriculture, patriotism or allegiance to our country. Mars transiting through this sector also is a time to attend to home improvement projects.

Assertive Mars is in its “fall” in feeling-oriented, meaning that it is out of its natural element or comfort zone in this sign. For instance, instead of taking direct action on an issue, Mars in Cancer tends to take a more circuitous approach to getting what it wants, as symbolized by the sideways movement of the crab. Mars will reside in Cancer until August 8th.

Chiron stationing retrograde today also suggests this is a time of looking inward and attending to our own wounds. The first quarter Moon in balancing Libra square to the Cancer Sun signifies that those intentions that were set at the last New Moon are also starting to take shape. We have also seen, in the last few days, with the ongoing and socially reforming Jupiter trine Uranus aspect, sudden shifts among many people in this country (and retailers) regarding the symbolism of the confederate flag. While not everyone agrees fully on how the matter should be viewed, there’s suddenly, at least, an important dialogue on the subject beginning to emerge. The “whirlwind nature” of this movement is also very characteristic of what we might expect to find when expansive, philosophical Jupiter aligns with innovative, equality-minded Uranus, with Uranus always encouraging us to go beyond the safety net of the status quo to take a stand, especially doing so within the framework of a group context.

Famous June 24th Birthdays: Mick Fleetwood, Roy Disney, Jeff Beck, Jack Dempsey, Solange Knowles. Would also like to extend a warm birthday greeting to my dear friend Liz, a very important member of my own tribe, who has always been there for me when I needed her to be. Love you, Liz! Hope we’re also neighbors again soon!

“A champion is someone who gets up when he can’t.” Jack Dempsey, also known as the “Manassa Mauler”.

Enjoy your Wednesday!

Curved Path

(Today’s planetary aspects: Rational Mercury squares evasive Neptune; impatient Mars quinqunxes restraining Saturn; the Moon is in corrective Virgo; and yesterday’s reform-oriented Jupiter-Uranus trine, is still in effect. )

Cosmic Quote of the Day: “There is stability in walking an uncertain path, because you never allow yourself to be misled by what you think you know.” A. J. Darkholme

When we do presume to know the “lay of the land,” we do tend to naturally let our guard down. Or, are possibly more apt to relax our critical judgment as we figure we will probably not be encountering too many surprises or other stuff we cannot handle. However, sometimes it is that very “I got this” attitude that can end up leading us down a more precarious path.

With today’s energy, especially the trickier Mercury-Neptune connection, which can sometimes serve to distort, delete, or cloak the facts, it may be very advantageous for us to not take anything for granted now, and to be extra vigilant regarding some of the situations which we find ourselves. That vigilance may be arrived at by doing such practical things as double-checking stuff, asking for clarity when in doubt, making sure others understand what we’re trying to communicate to them, refraining from automatically accepting things at face value. Fortunately, the Moon deposited in logical Virgo, all day, can serve as a healthy filter to help us wade through the obscuring Neptunian fog. Too, this can be a great day to do any creative work that calls for employing the power of our imagination.  Meanwhile, the Mars-Saturn quinqunx influence may also require us to justify our actions, especially to those who are in charge. One of my favorite astrologers, Lilly Roddy, said in her daily blog today, that we may want to just use this day as a “mental health day,” and chill out with movies and snacks, while planning for tomorrow. Also sounds like a good strategy!

On a personal note, I’ve been absent from this blog for the last three months, mainly due to my workload. Hopefully, though, I’ll be able to be around here with more regularity in the future.

Hope you enjoy your day!
