Astrology March 1, 2015: Mercury Sextiles Uranus, Opposes Jupiter

“Life is a series of opportunities for us to connect with who we really are and what we love.” Alan Cohen

COSMIC WATCH:

We begin the day with the Moon void-of-course in “sensitive” Cancer. The Moon enters “entertaining” Leo at 6:34 pm.

Mercury in Aquarius sextiles Uranus in Aries at 10:55 am. It opposes Jupiter in Leo at 4:15 pm.

Don’t you just love those days when, what you’ve been struggling to learn or know, all of a sudden “makes a grand appearance” in your life, and you’re no longer left “stumbling in the dark,” so to speak? Those “appearances,” commonly referred to as “light bulb moments,” are often synonymous with Mercury-Uranus alignments, with Mercury governing our reasoning and thinking abilities, and Uranus symbolizing our brilliance, genius, or intuition.

Also, the Mercury-Jupiter opposition can make us hungry for higher meaning, understanding, wanting to share our beliefs and views with others, as well as wanting to perhaps investigate such areas as religion, philosophy, and the teachings of other cultures. It is also an aspect that is linked with voluminous writing, publishing, traveling, expansive conversation (chattiness, too), public speaking, promotion or advertising.To attain knowledge, add things everyday. To attain wisdom, remove things every day.” Lao Tzu

*All times are EST.

Question for Today: What is the one question that you need to ask yourself?

Astrology February 28, 2015: Sentimental Cancer Moon Aligns with Uranus and Pluto

“That’s what people do who love you. They put their arms around you and love you when you’re not so lovable.” Deb Caletti

COSMIC WATCH:

Blackbird Chicks In Nest

The Moon remains in “nesting” Cancer, all day. Knowing that we have a “place to call home,” and people around us who “have our back,” no matter what, is especially comforting for us now. This lunar position can also invoke our patriotism, or allegiance to our tribe – the “first chakra” issues.  The Moon goes void-of-course in Cancer at 12:53 pm, and will remain so until it shifts into “self-expressive” Leo at 6:34 pm, on Sunday.

The Cancer Moon forms a square to “erratic” Uranus, late this morning, at 11:49 am. This could bring about some emotional vacillation, as well as a desire to “bust out of our routines.” We may also need to be flexible with matters on the home front, especially when things do not go as planned. Too, surrendering our expectations for how things are “supposed to be,” and going, instead, with what wants to show up in the moment, can be a very positive way to navigate this period. Uranus symbolizes the unexpected, change, taking new approaches, liberation, radical thinking, people who break or circumvent the rules, astrologers, inventors, electrical activity.

The Moon also forms an opposition to “tell it like it is” Pluto, 12:53 pm. While this more emotionally intense influence can lead us to “the truth,” we may want to refrain now from acting upon any of the burgeoning revelations, until we’ve at least had a chance to sit with them for a while. Kind of like when we take a cake out of the oven, we don’t want to cut it, while it’s still hot. Pluto symbolizes secrets, or what has been hidden, the domain of the subconscious, the basement of a house, plumbing, extremist views, obsessions, grave-diggers, miners, psychotherapists.

“Once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.” Spock, Star Trek. Rest in peace, Leonard Nimoy. (March 26, 1931 – February 27, 2015)

* All times are EST.

Question for Today: Is there anything you’ve been wanting to say to a family member, but just haven’t said it yet? (This could also include those family members who have transitioned.) If so, what exactly would you like to say?

In the News: With the Moon in “security-driven” Cancer, and forming a fluid trine to “putting aside our differences” Neptune, the U.S. Congress finally passes “Stopgap Funding for Homeland Security,” late last night (wsj.com).

Earlier in the evening, the Cancer Moon was also square to Mars in “initiating” Aries.  Squares are often synonymous with our needing to take prompt action. It is also the nature of “warrior” Mars to act swiftly on matters that are deemed necessary for our survival and well-being. Had Congress not acted on this measure by midnight, funding for Homeland Security was set to expire.

Astrology February 27, 2015: A Time to Pause? Moon enters Cancer

Tags

“Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.” C.G. Jung

COSMIC WATCH:

Footsteps 2

We’ve all heard: Three steps forward, two steps back. I believe, today, with the Moon entering its home turf of “protective” Cancer (7:50 am EST), and forming a late day trine to “reflective” Neptune (9:59 pm EST), which is still involved in the latter stages of that annual, dreamy conjunction with the Sun, in “transcendent” Pisces, we’re pretty much into that “two steps backward” phase of our journey now. Feeling a need to chew upon our latest moves, or forays into the world.

Some of us, too, may have launched a lot of “rockets of desire,” as of late, with both Mars and Venus entering “initiating” Aries. Too, anytime we put new things into motion, shortly afterwards, if not immediately, we begin to feel the consequences of that activity, and that activity almost always ends up impacting us, to some degree, on an energetic level.

For example, as you may have noticed, I’ve been trying to blog here with more regularity, and have been doing so for more than a week now (it started with Mars applying to a conjunction with my 2 degree Aries Ascendant). But, I must confess, this activity has already come at somewhat of a cost to me. While I like the notion of challenging myself to create something “out of nothing,” the downside of doing this, nearly daily, is that it also routinely requires a good chunk of both my mental and physical energy, time, etc. – yadda yadda yadda. :) So now, with the assist of the “self-nurturing” Cancer Moon, if I’m a smart cookie, I may want to take a moment out here, to weigh the “pros and cons” of this very “self-humbling” endeavor. And, likewise, you may want to do the same thing, with regard to what you’ve recently thrown up onto the canvas of life – to see if it makes sense for you to continue along this trajectory, in the same manner. Or, maybe you – as well as I – will both discover that we need to implement some immediate, corrective, generous self-care measures – a bit of tweaking of things – to stabilize or sustain our spirit, as well as preserve any remaining portion of our sanity and good humor.

Also, before the “maternal” Cancer Moon harmoniously trines Neptune, tonight, she’s going to square “assertive” Mars in Aries (7:41 pm EST) the warrior planet, suggesting that we may be a little tempted to come out of the self-imposed hibernation mode to consider flexing our muscle, for a flash. Especially if we discern the behavior’s warranted because we’re being taunted, bullied, etc by maybe the dog, the television, or our lovable in-laws. The testosterone laden Moon-Mars aspect is often associated with defensive posturing or maneuvering.

Also, “expansive” Jupiter, governing our beliefs, optimism, and personal philosophy is quinqunx “reconfigurating” Pluto, today. This rather off-kilter influence may inspire us to temporarily revisit some of our beliefs about things, especially those self-limiting beliefs that may be sabotaging or undermining our own interests, or otherwise interfering with our self-growth, in some manner. Too, isn’t it funny how we frequently can get in our own way, and never even know it at the time? Often, the only way we ever even become cognizant of this fact is that an event will occur, or we’ll get sick, etc., and then, all of a sudden, we’re gifted with this amazing, remarkable clarity of how we’ve been keeping our self small due to our convoluted thinking. “You never know how much you really believe anything until its truth or falsehood becomes a matter of life and death to you.” C.S. Lewis

Question for Today: Where do you believe that you need to hit the “Pause” button now?

Astrology February 26, 2015: Moon Continues in Gemini

“Before I can become an expert on anything, I must first become an expert on me.” Charles F. Glassman

COSMIC WATCH:

Maybe, blame it on the “playful, yet studious,” void-of-course Gemini Moon, but, for some reason, I just felt like doing something a little different here, today. So, what I’ve done is embody, what I perceive to be, the “main cosmic energy” of the day into what I feel are three, suitable archetypal figures (or patterns of identity) below, and then formulated a few questions around them. Too, there are no right or wrong answers. More, it’s simply an exercise in what happens to come up for you in the moment. Hope you enjoy!

Who would you rather be holed up with on a desert island, and why?

  1. A reporter (Moon in Gemini)
  2. A monk (Sun conjunct Neptune)
  3. An “Olympic athlete” (Mars trine Saturn)

Which of the three do you think has the hardest job? The easiest job?

Which of the three would you be the least comfortable around?

How are all three roles similar?

If you had to reincarnate as any of the three, which one would you pick?

How might any or all of these three archetypal patterns also be playing out in your life, right now? 

Of course, too, you may also want to come up with your own archetypes for today, especially if none of these resonate with you. You could also even choose archetypes that might be manifesting more of the darker side of today’s energy, simply as models of study. I also just thought of another question to ask: Assuming you believe in a Higher Power, if you were living your life purely from your Spirit or Soul today (Sun conjunct Neptune) – instead of from your “self-survival” oriented Ego – what might you be guided to do now? Any big changes you might consider making? Or, with what you currently have on the drawing board for your self, do you think you would you be following through with this agenda now – or might you be scrapping it, or possibly tweaking it, with your Soul at the wheel? Do you also see your life necessarily “as better” directed from your soul’s compass?

Astrology February 25, 2015: Mars Trine Saturn, Sun Conjunct Neptune

“Don’t wish it were easier. Wish you were better.” Jim Rohn

COSMIC WATCH:

Piatra Craiului, Romania 1

Most of us likely have heard the saying: Keep your nose to the grindstone. Meaning that we should apply our self conscientiously to our work. The Mars trine Saturn influence that we have, tonight, (10:09 pm EST) echoes that same sentiment. It’s an aspect associated with disciplined effort, steely resolve, strategic planning, knowing how and when to pace our self. Mars represents our assertive ability, Saturn our perseverance. The trine aspect signifies ease and harmony.

Too, have you ever come really close to giving up on something that you really wanted, but then decided, at perhaps the last minute, that you were going to hang in there with the matter, until you were victorious – and later, you were victorious? Remember, how good you felt about that success, that accomplishment? Mars trine Saturn periods are often times when we do also have occasion in the world to finally “reap our reward,” for applying our self. At the very least, we’re often able to win over our adversaries, opponents, or those persons who have authority over us, like our bosses, because they’re impressed with how we’ve managed to step up our game, or that we’ve diligently done our homework.

While the Mars-Saturn influence is exact, tonight, it will be lingering around for a few more days, so it may behoove us now to really go after what we want, leaving no stone unturned. Also, in case we’re somewhat unsure of what direction to take, or what to do, we should at least try to challenge our self to put something up on the drawing board, even if it’s only a plan, as that’s a beginning. Taking that action step also signals to the subconscious a willingness to be engaged with our life, and that opens the pathway for greater things to come.

Shortly after the Mars-Saturn trine, tonight, the “empowering” Sun is also having its annual meet-up (conjunction) with “transcendent” Neptune in Pisces (11:55 pm EST), an influence that, by contrast, tends to make us less concerned about achievement in the outer world and more interested in what’s going on within our interior world. This period is an excellent time for journaling, meditation, retreats, dream work, showing others kindness. Also for creative endeavors that allow us to use our imagination and visioning abilities. The Sun-Neptune influence will be around for the next day or two. “Inside us there is something that has no name, that something is what we are.” Jose Saramago

The Moon is also in “adaptable” Gemini, the entire day.

Question for Today: Would you rather have worldly success, or inner peace?

Famous February 25 Birthdays: George Harrison, Rudolf Steiner, Jim Backus

 “If we do not believe within ourselves this deeply rooted feeling that there is something higher than ourselves, we shall never find the strength to evolve into something higher.” Rudolf Steiner

“Security in a relationship lies neither in looking back to what it was, nor forward to what it might be, but living in the present and accepting it as it is now.” Anne Morrow Lindbergh

COSMIC WATCH:

With “social” Venus trining “anchoring” Saturn, today (9:58 am EST), shoring up our support systems may be more on our radar now, especially, perhaps, in the two big areas that are ruled by Venus: money and relationships. Too, we all know how these two realms often are closely intertwined with each other, with “money issues” frequently cited as the main reason many couples divorce, or split up. I know, too, in the past, I’ve often heard money guru Suze Orman say that, once we get our finances in order, everything else will fall into place. On a financial level, Venus trine Saturn favors budgeting, investment analysis, buying long-term possessions, obtaining backing. Relationship-wise, it tends to coincide with fostering commitments, spelling out duties in partnerships.

On another level, Venus in “pioneering” Aries may also inspire us to put something creative into the ether that we personally identify with, with the Saturn trine, ideally, helping us to be successful in this area.

The Moon is void-of-course in “material” Taurus all day, until 11:54 pm EST, when it shifts into “curious” Gemini.

Astrology February 23, 2015: Sun Squares Saturn

“Success is not a function of the size of your title but the richness of your contribution.” Robin S. Sharma

COSMIC WATCH:

Saturn

Sun squaring “serious” Saturn (8:56 am EST) is generally a one or two day period when we’re encouraged to take stock of our situation to see how we’re faring with respect to our long-term goals, making adjustments where we see fit. Of course, it’s often the nature of “teacher” Saturn to also toss in a few “challenges” along our path so that we can stretch our capabilities a bit – sort of akin to having us do a little barbell lifting, I suppose – something deemed to be good for us in the long run, but, in the short term, it may appear otherwise.

A big thing here, however, in all of this, is not to become overly critical or judgmental of our self, our performance, and maybe what we’ve failed or neglected to do, or to become preoccupied with our fears, but rather to see what steps we can take going forward to be more on track with what we truly want to manifest for our self. Also, it’s a good time to evaluate whether what we’re wanting to achieve is really a derivative of our own stuff, our own dreams – or are we simply carrying out, perhaps unconsciously, the directives of what other people want for us, like our parents, partners, etc. The shadow side of the Sun-Saturn can be feelings of guilt, regret, withdrawal. Feeling that we’re not good enough.

The Moon is also in “practical, determined” Taurus, all day, hopefully, providing us with the wherewithal to plow through any bumpy patches. The Moon’s trine to Pluto (9:01 pm EST) also potentially helps us put everything in perspective, in a transformative way. Moon-Pluto can also motivate us to probe deeper into our emotional nature. “Not enough people in this world, I think, carry a cosmic perspective with them. It could be life-changing.” Neil deGrasse Tyson

Question for Today: What is the key to unleashing your greatness?

Astrology February 22, 2015: Wrapping Things Up With The Aries Moon

Tags

, , , , , , ,

“No one has a problem with the first mile of a journey. Even an infant could do fine for a while. But it isn’t the start that matters. It’s the finish line.” Julien Smith

COSMIC WATCH:

Marathon 1

Generally speaking, do you think we’re more wired for starting things, or for finishing things? It seems from my personal observation, at least, that most of us get quite excited about beginning something new, especially when it’s something that we’re really looking forward to. But, once the newness of the endeavor wears off, as it inevitably will, completing what we’ve started can quickly become an almost Herculean-sized task for us, in many instances. However, does it necessarily have to be this way, all the time? Or, maybe even, part of the time?  Probably, not. At least I would like to think that this is, indeed the case, as the other reality or scenario seems far too draining to me, way too rigid or limiting for the way that I perceive our inherent natures to be, which is ever-expansive and evolving.

Of course, in the end, it may all very well depend upon our own individual frame of mind about a matter, as well as our initial reason or motivation for undertaking a particular activity in the first place. I also think that it can appreciably help out our cause if we’re able to keep our end goal firmly in mind, for the entire duration of an activity, with that single-minded focus acting as a powerful glue that seals all our efforts together until we reach the finish line.

For instance, I’m trying to lower my cholesterol, so each morning I have a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast, which has been shown to reduce cholesterol levels in the body (I’ve also had good success with this strategy in the past). There are some mornings, of course, when I’m tempted to “fall off the wagon” and maybe have a sausage biscuit or a bagel with cream cheese, especially when I’m out and about. But, most of the time I’m able to pass these things up simply by keeping my attention on my objective for eating the oatmeal, in the first place: to have a lower cholesterol reading when I have my annual physical checkup, next August.

I’m mentioning all of this to you, today, because the Moon is now “void-of-course” in “pioneering” Aries, a time period when the traditional astrological wisdom would suggest is ideal for staying the course, tying up loose ends, finishing what we’ve started – versus initiating anything new. Then, once the Moon enters “practical” Taurus, later this evening (7:28 pm EST), it will have completed its V-O-C phase, and we then have the green light again to move forward with new endeavors.

It may also be kind of fun to casually observe ourselves, today, as we’re completing our projects, to see what’s coming up for us in the process. See what’s taking place with our energy levels. Are they going up, or down, as we finish things off? I have a sneaking suspicion that our energy levels will likely rise because we’re feeling a sense of accomplishment by bringing matters to a completion. Unfinished tasks, whether we’re aware of it or not, tend to weigh us down, or rob of us our energy, suggesting to me that completing things is really in our best interests, from a survival standpoint, because it’s a way for us to maximize or preserve our physical life force. Maybe that’s also why many of us feel guilty when we don’t finish things – we intuitively know that we’re sabotaging ourselves and putting our life force potentially at risk.

With that said, we probably don’t need to complete every single thing that we start, as that could very well be counterproductive, and highly impractical, as in the case of not wanting to finish something because we no longer have interest in it, or it no longer serves a worthy purpose for us. But things that are key to us, we should really make an effort to complete. Too, this not only helps us to live in integrity with ourselves, it also signals to our subconscious that we’re able to follow through with things, which is an important element if we’re asking the Universe to supply us with more abundance or prosperity, or better health, etc. in our lives. If we show the Powers That Be that we can be effective stewards of our resources, and wise in the allocation of our time and talent, it would seem that we would have a greater likelihood of having positive things flow to us, as there would be less resistance in our energy field to stem the flow of the incoming good.

Getting back to the astrology: We still also have the playful, romantic, highly creative “Venus-Mars” conjunction in effect, in Aries, which was exact, early this morning, so we may definitely want to save some time for pleasurable or fun pursuits, as well, today. This is a great influence for socializing, parties, shopping, fashion, or taking in the arts. Also, a perfect backdrop for the Oscars in Hollywood, tonight. This Venus-Mars influence actually sort of lingers around until mid-March, as these two planet will be staying in fairly close range with each other, until then. We may also want to check to see what house in our personal charts this configuration is occurring in as that will be the area in our lives where conditions may be easing off a bit, or where we may be seeing new opportunities for expressing our passion, or for enlisting the cooperation and support of others, as Mars-Venus energy can help us in strengthening our power of attraction for whatever it is that we desire. It can also help us connect more effortlessly (Venus) with other people.

Question for Today:  What do you think would be a real “game-changer” for you to complete or finish?

The emotional Moon also hooks up with this energetic, dynamic duo in Aries, later this evening. Ideally, this supercharged lineup inspires us to seek out newness, freshness in our lives now, perhaps in some marvelous, impromptu way, with Aries the official sign of new beginnings. How we individually decide to go about this, of course, is entirely up to us. It may also depend on how eager we are for things to be different, or changed around us.

Too, it could be that Venus in Aries primes us to be more direct or assertive in our relationships, for the next few weeks. More willing to take chances with our pulsating, tender heart, which might simply translate into our being more flirty, more daring to make the first move with someone we’ve perhaps just met. That kind of forward behavior, in itself, can also be akin to an act of courage for some of us not accustomed to acting in such an outgoing manner. Or, for those of us in existing relationships, we may want to do something out of the ordinary, that will basically spice them up a bit. Of course, I’m sure we all have our own cache of intriguing ideas on how this could all ravenously play out!

Venus in Aries is also equated with the concept of self-love, which, at its finest, allows us to care for our self as we would a good friend, with unconditional support and only the noblest of intentions for their welfare. Even in the Bible, with the ten commandments, we are commanded to “love your neighbor as yourself.” Done right, self-love can be a powerful game-changer, in the best possible way.

One more thing, on the general topic of Aries. I think that there’s always been something very alluring, very appealing to us about living life in the fast lane (i.e. the “Aries” lane). Maybe it’s something primal inside of us that craves, gets rejuvenated, by the notion of speed, movement. The flirt with danger. I also think that we all share a common fear or worry of coming to the end of our lives and regretting that we did not take enough risks or chances with them, even though intuitively we may have known all along, or at least have strongly suspected, that we were made or wired for greatness, which normally precludes an ample amount of risk-taking on our part. The stellium in “self-made” Aries now is a good time to nudge ourselves forward, along that risk continuum. We also need to pay really close attention to what comes up for us in the process. Too, what I often find most interesting about moving beyond our comfort zone is that things often don’t pan out quite the way that we thought they would in our head, especially regarding the scary things that we thought might happen to us, if we took certain actions. It seems that a lot of our fears are in vain, and a real drain on our brain. The super cool thing about Aries energy, though, is that it challenges us to go eye to eye with whatever is holding us down. And that challenge intrigues us, although at the same time, it may be equally as daunting. Part of the paradox of life, I guess. :)

Astrology February 19, 2015: Mars Enters Aries, Mercury Sextiles Saturn

COSMIC WATCH:

Fire_planet 2

Mars, the energy planet, that inspires us to take action in the real world, enters “pioneering” Aries tonight (7:12 pm EST), the zodiacal sign that it rules, where it will stay until March 31st. Ideally, this placement will supply us with a full tank of “high-octane motivation,” in the coming days and weeks ahead, especially to tackle some of those highly personal projects that we may have had on the back burner, for a while now. Included here, might be a few of those endearing New Year’s resolutions – remember those? – that for, whatever reason, haven’t been allowed to gain much traction in our busy lives.

Also, Aries is the “sign of the self,” so the self-promotion, self-development, self-focus is perfectly acceptable and fully expected now, with Mars moving through this sector of the zodiac. One of my favorite quotes is by Wayne Dyer: “Don’t die with your music still inside you.” Too, unless we make the conscious effort to self-actualize – which Mars in Aries will be encouraging all of us to do now – no one else is going to do it for us. Getting our music “out into the world” is, and always has been, an inside job. And, if we’re lucky, we may catch a break or two, along the way.

Of course, too, it often takes a commitment of real physical energy – actual muscle and sweat – to bring our precious dreams and goals into manifestation, and with Mars holed up in watery, mutable Pisces, since mid-January, for some of us, that actual energetic component may have been sorely lacking, as of late. Mars in “transcendent” Pisces, though, hopefully has been great for nurturing our inner vision, or inner awareness, so now we readily know and recognize the work before us in the outer world that we have to do, must do, if we are going to cultivate and realize our life’s potential, or purpose.

Mars in Aries is, potentially, a grand opportunity for us to really develop and display our courage and leadership abilities. Symbolically, it can act as a strong ally for us in helping us to face down our fears or doubts. On an archetypal level, Mars in Aries awakens our inner “brigadier general,” challenging us to take full command of our lives and our destinies – as much as is humanly possible, of course. Granted, we don’t always hold “all the strings,” but we are in control of the choices that we make and, at the end of the day, that’s pretty heady stuff to command, don’t you think? Author Caroline Myss says “our thoughts and our attitudes” are our true power. Yet, so many of us fail to realize this, until it’s often too late.

Meanwhile, intellectual Mercury in “observational” Aquarius is also sextiling “wise old owl” Saturn, today, in “positive” Sagittarius. This influence is excellent for mentoring others, or for taking someone under our wing to encourage them. It’s also a good time to come up with practical solutions to our problems, culled, of course, from years of our impressive, voluminous experience in the school of hard knocks. :) This aspect also favors concentration and attention to detail. Might also be a good time to look up old friends, or acquaintances.
