Astrology August 29, 2014: Sun Opposes Neptune

“The more I see, the less I know for sure.” John Lennon

COSMIC WATCH:

The “logical” Virgo Sun opposes “foggy” Neptune (10:33 am EDT). It may be harder for us to discern exactly what’s flitting across our radar screen today. On the one hand, this could open the door to our taking more “creative license” to explain things away. Especially since Neptune does govern our imagination and story-telling ability. A shadow-side manifestation of this configuration might be a temptation to partake in lies or deception; or to otherwise, distort the true nature of something, maybe through acts of omission.

Also, Sun-Neptune aspects are often associated with elements of surrender. Perhaps, partly because our ego energies tend to be lower now, which means we’re more likely to offer up less resistance.

On a more positive note, the Sun aligned with Neptune potentially strengthens our connection to the metaphysical realm, which Neptune also symbolizes. This might be an ideal period to go on a spiritual retreat in an effort to give our lives greater meaning and a deeper context. We may also feel more inclined to want to help others now, in a selfless way. Something that, I believe, we can all agree, is very much needed in the world today.

Question for Today: How might a “lack of clarity” actually be a good thing?

“I am living permanently in my dream, from which I make brief forays into reality.” Ingrid Bergman. What a perfect quote for this very Neptunian day!

Astrology August 26, 2014: Venus Squares Saturn

“Do not cling to a limited, disconnected, negative image of a person in the past. See that person now.” Brian L. Weiss

COSMIC WATCH:

Sweet Venus squares “detached” Saturn today (2:22 pm EDT). A time when many of us may be more than a little tempted to pull down the shade on love and relationships and just hang out with our lonesome. And, you know what – that may not be such a bad idea! Sometimes, we do need a “people-less day”, every now and then, in order to come away with a fresh, new perspective on things. Spending time alone is a great way for us to get to know our self better and find out what we really desire in life, including who we want around us.

Too, while it may be very important for us to see our relationships as they are now – what we don’t want to do, is see them “worse” than they are. Which is occasionally a trap that the Venus-Saturn can set up for us by activating our Monkey Mind fears or paranoia. Meanwhile, this same aspect can also find us taking a cold, hard look at our finances today – as Venus also rules money and possession matters.

“Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.” Anais Nin

Question for Today: What might you be failing to see about your partner, or someone else close to you?

Astrology August 23, 2014: Sun Enters Virgo, Mars and Uranus Align

“If you’re any good at all, you know you can be better.” Lindsay Buckingham

COSMIC WATCH:

Motivational coach and speaker Tony Robbins says that one trait that all highly successful people have in common is that they’re always trying to “raise their standards” – always attempting to upgrade what they bring to their game. I’m mentioning this because, overnight, the Sun shifted into “fine-tuning” Virgo (12:46 am EDT), a sign naturally oriented toward matters of self-improvement / personal development.

As the Sun journeys through resourceful Virgo, for the next thirty days, this is the best time of the year to refine our methods, raise the bar, focus on health and dietary matters, and take our skills and abilities to the next level. An archetype often associated with the sign of Virgo is that of the “apprentice” perfecting his craft.

We also have “assertive” Mars quinqunx “experimental “ Uranus today, a rather awkward aspect that was exact, very early this morning (2:32 am EDT). Whereas the organizing Virgo Sun likes to have all of its ducks in a row, this Mars-Uranus combo of free-spirited energy tends to just want to “wing it.”

Too, even though the Sun exited “playful” Leo yesterday, the Moon is still camping out there and connecting with both “expansive” Jupiter (9:47 am EDT) and “romantic” Venus (10:01 pm EDT). Hopefully, a very pleasant backdrop for partaking in some fun or leisure activities, as we attempt to decompress from the work week. By the way, ancient Greek philosopher Plato, once conjectured, that we could probably discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation. I was thinking to myself that, perhaps, one reason that he said that was because, when we are at play, we are more apt to be spontaneous and more fully engaged in the moment; our editing or self-monitoring filters are less likely to be turned up, allowing for the revelation of more our true character and personality. It’s interesting, too, how many of us – myself included – have been conditioned, most of our lives, to believe that work is a more valuable activity than play; that play is something that is mainly to be engaged in, in our spare time – when we’re not working! I think now, though, more and more of us are finally realizing that’s not necessarily true. That while work is of value – play is, likely, of equal value.

Question for Today: What is a life you could be living?

Astrology August 22, 2014: Final Day of Sun in Authoritative Leo

Tags

, , , ,

“The man who trims himself to suit everybody will soon whittle himself away.” Charles Schwab

COSMIC WATCH:

Depending on where you live, this is the Sun’s last full day in “authoritative” Leo the Lion, the sign that it rules. Tomorrow, it will be entering “service-oriented” Virgo (12:46 am EDT).

With the Sun symbolizing our ego and personal sense of power, now that it’s exiting Leo, this may be a good day for us to reflect upon how we have been using our power to achieve our own ends. Has what we’ve been doing been working for us? Are we pleased with the results that we have been getting? If not, how might we shift things around so things work out more in our favor?

Too, sometimes when a planet is at 29 degrees, the Anaretic Degree, which is also known as the Karmic Degree, we feel more of a sense of urgency to express the particular energies of that planet – especially if we have had a struggle expressing these energies in the past. It’s kind of like making “one last stand.” So with the Sun at 29 Leo, this could possibly translate into our having more of an acute need now to demonstrate our personal power in the world, to weave our sphere of influence. Too, it could be that our ego (Sun) has a burning desire for more outward recognition (Leo).

“If you start today to do the right thing, you are already a success even if it doesn’t show yet.” John Maxwell

Question for Today: When you are feeling a deep sense of your own power, what are you doing?

Astrology August 21, 2014: Mercury Trines Pluto

Tags

, , , ,

“When people will not weed their own minds, they are apt to be overrun by nettles.” Horace Walpole

COSMIC WATCH:

Clarity of mind is always potentially a big game changer for us because, when we have it, we usually spend much less time second-guessing or doubting ourselves. Which means that we automatically have more energy at our disposal to funnel toward other things in life. Especially the things that are paramount to us – like making steady traction toward our dreams.

Too, ridding ourselves of self-limiting thoughts and beliefs – which are really nothing but insidious weeds that choke out our spirit – is also an effective way to help squelch the energy leaks and get us going again in the right direction.

What is formidable about today’s cosmic energy is, intellectual Mercury, which is already strengthened by being in analytical Virgo, a sign that it rules, is giving a big shout-out to transforming Pluto, the planet of perception and transformation, via a harmonious, 120-degree trine aspect. Pluto characteristically invites us to “go deeper” with just about everything that manages to skirt across cross its path. So, it would appear that a bright hope for the day is that we will be able to make some decent headway in the clarity or insight department. For instance, maybe we will finally be able see things that we haven’t been able to see before, for whatever reason. Also, it’s perhaps worth pointing out that, sometimes even the slightest alteration in our perceptions can end up having major consequences for our lives, which I’m sure we’ve all experienced, at one time or the other.

Additionally, the greater awareness that is floating up to our consciousness now can also possibly translate into our being able to communicate with others more persuasively, albeit with more conviction, in either speech or writing. We are also more inclined to want to share or reveal our deepest secrets due to the intrinsic excavating nature of Mercury-Pluto. Too, Pluto rules spying and espionage, and hidden factions or elements.

Question for Today: Where do you think clarity has been missing in your life?

Astrology August 19, 2014: Moon in Gemini, Sun Aligns With Pluto

Tags

, , , , , , ,

“What is wanted is not the will to believe, but the will to find out, which is the exact opposite.” Bertrand Russell

COSMIC WATCH:

With the Moon remaining in inquisitive Gemini all day, cozying up to our curious side opens the door to new discoveries. Albert Einstein once remarked that curiosity is even more important than knowledge. Perhaps this is because curiosity is a forward moving energy. It is nature’s trusted way of keeping us fully engaged with our lives.

Also, the Sun is aligned (sesquiquadrate) with perceptive Pluto. This pairing may find us going deep within ourselves looking for answers. Too, Pluto, which also governs alchemy, often puts our attention on matters that are either in a state of entropy, or in need of some kind of turnaround. Since the Moon is also in its waning phase, this is an especially good time for any purging (Pluto) or refurbishing projects.

Question for Today: What one question would you most like to know the answer to?

Astrology August 18, 2014: Venus Conjuncts Jupiter, Mercury Opposes Neptune

“Love only grows by sharing. You can only have more for yourself by giving it away to others.” Brian Tracy

COSMIC WATCH:

The Moon is in “chatty” Gemini all day. Love Goddess Venus also conjuncts generous Jupiter, in royal Leo (1:21 am EDT). Ideally, this influence will open up all of our heart chakras, and poise us to want to spread plenty of joy and good cheer around. It is widely regarded as an aspect of abundance and well-being. It can also be very romantic.

Tonight, communicator Mercury opposes fantasy Neptune (11:42 pm EDT), the planet of imagination and deception. Separating fact from fiction could get a little more complicated. Misunderstandings and confusion can also abound. It is a good aspect, though, for creativity. “Oh, what a tangled web we weave…when first we practice to deceive.” Walter Scott

Question for Today: Who do you think “has it all”?

Famous August 18 Birthdays: Robert Redford, Patrick Swayze, Roberto Clemente, Roman Polanski, Shelley Winters.

“Love can sometimes be magic. But magic can sometimes…just be an illusion.” Javan

COSMIC WATCH:

With relationship Venus quinqunx dreamy Neptune today (11:08 am EDT), we are more inclined to indulge our romantic fantasies. There can also be more of a tendency to play the “savior” role with others. Too, the Moon is at its “Last Quarter phase” at 24 degrees of Taurus (8:26 am EDT), a period to begin putting the finishing touches on our July 26th New Moon intentions.

Question for Today: What is the best, single piece of romantic advice you could give someone?

Astrology August 15, 2014: Mars Sextiles Pluto, Mercury Enters Virgo

Tags

, , , , ,

“I take pleasure in my transformations. I look quiet and consistent, but few know how many women there are in me.” Anais Nin

COSMIC WATCH:

We have all seen dramatic “before” and “after” makeover shots that we marvel over. Today, we have a somewhat comparable offering in the guise of galvanizing Mars sextile rebirthing Pluto. This planetary influence is often paired with what could be described as game-shifting scenarios.

Too, on the eve of this aspect, we have heard about several noteworthy, altering type events in the collective, including Iraq’s Prime Minister Maliki announcing that he was going to step down from his post. Also yesterday, Rob Manfred was chosen as the new Major League Baseball Commissioner, one of the most powerful positions in sports. On a more sentimental note, Sir Paul McCartney entertained patrons with a concert at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, likely the last major event to be held at the 50-year-old stadium, which has been earmarked for demolition (Pluto). The Beatles also performed their last concert together in the U.S. at Candlestick, back in 1966, so it was a bit of deja vu for Paul.

Pluto’s ray is often associated with events that affect the masses. It is also linked with power and control issues. Too, sometimes what has been hidden is finally exposed or brought to light. Additionally, I would like to interject here that, often while transformational situations are occurring, we will not really know their full impact, until much later. For instance, under this Mars-Pluto influence, we could possibly meet someone who will later turn out to play a pivotal role in our lives, even though, in the present moment, we have no clue about this.

Also, the Moon has been in “pioneering” Aries, the last couple days, a fire sign that normally adds more momentum to our affairs, as it fuels our desire to take action on what we want. Today, however, Luna shifts into steady, stabilizing Taurus, and we’re more focused on preserving our resources and energy (11:58 am EDT). Intellectual Mercury also leaves proud, creative Leo for practical, analytical Virgo (12:44 pm EDT). This sign change should help to boost our problem-solving skills. Mercury remains in Virgo until September 1st.

Some celebrities with Mars-Pluto aspects in their birthcharts: Steve Jobs, Billy Idol, Paul McCartney, Oprah Winfrey, Farrah Fawcett, Kirstie Alley.

Today’s Question: If you had a magic wand at your disposal to use today, what would be the very first thing that you would do with it?

“For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.” Nelson Mandela

COSMIC WATCH:

With the Moon in “don’t fence me in” Aries today, and also conjunct “rules-breaker” Uranus (12:14 pm EDT), allowing ourselves more latitude to “draw outside the lines” may be a positive way for us to experience and cultivate a sense of our own uniqueness (or quirkiness) now. Also, with the Moon aligned with improvisational Uranus, having a “Plan B” ready to whip out, at a moment’s notice, may be a smart strategy in which to play the day. Uranus often presenting us with sudden opportunities to think on our feet.

Question for Today: How would you like to rewrite the rules?
