Astrology May 10, 2017: Mercury Conjuncts Uranus, Scorpio Full Moon

“Most people are slow to champion love because they fear the transformation it brings into their lives. And make no mistake about it: love does take over and transform the schemes and operations of our egos in a very mighty way.” AberJhani

Cosmic Weather: Mercury conjuncts Uranus in spontaneous Aries (1:19 am). This quickening influence speeds up our thought processes! It’s associated with sudden decision-making. There’s more of a tendency to seek out-of-the-ordinary solutions to problems now. It can be a highly creative or inventive time for us, intellectually, as we are more willing to entertain different viewpoints and perspectives. We are also less concerned now with what other people think about us. Anytime Mercury and Uranus conjoin, there’s also a potential for surprising or startling twists in communications (Mercury) due to the more erratic and experimental nature of Uranus (President Trump’s firing of James Comey FBI Director!). On the shadow side, this configuration can make us mentally restless and rebellious and more rash and impulsive in our decisions.

Full Moon in Passionate Scorpio (5:42 pm). We are seeking to balance our need for security or stability (Sun in Taurus) with our desire for shared intimacy with others (Moon in opposing Scorpio). Because of the illuminating nature of a Full Moon, we may also discover what it is that may be preventing us from reaching this objective, and what to do about it. The Moon’s sextile to perceptive Pluto, the modern-day ruler of Scorpio, can also offers us deeper insights into the emotional needs of others. On another level, the Scorpio Full Moon can trigger sweeping shifts in power, partly because we are not afraid to act on our desires and go after what it is that we want.

Ideally, we’re also transmuting old fears and hurts into breakthroughs and possibilities. We’re taking back our power! Arising from the ashes like the Phoenix bird! Sun-Pluto energy supports any kind of rehabilitative or refurbishing projects, purge or detox efforts, investigation, solving mysteries, and research. Strong, more complex emotions rise to the surface.

New Moon in Taurus – Astrology April 26, 2017

“Tell me what you pay attention to and I will tell you who you are.” Jose Ortega y Gasset

Cosmic Weather: 

There is a New Moon in deliberate Taurus the Bull this morning (8:16 am EDT), the first of the earth signs. Venus-ruled Taurus governs money, possessions, values, and the things we love. The practical Taurus New Moon helps us to formulate some realistic plans for ourselves, over the course of the next month. It is also excellent energy for helping us to slow down the pace of our lives and be in the moment, which is something that we are learning more and more is foundational to achieving and preserving good health.

It is also a perfect time to really think about, and become more clear about, what it is that we value, and why. Our values, along with our beliefs, are ultimately what help to inspire and shape our day-to-day actions, which are essentially the building blocks of our lives. Many of us are perennially seeking answers outside of ourselves, about the nature of our future, when in reality, all we really need to do is take a close look at our daily activities. See what we are routinely investing our time and energy in, and that should give us a pretty good idea as to where we are heading. Taurus, archetypally, also represents the builder.

This New Moon does form harmonious aspects with Neptune and the North Node in Virgo, potentially allowing us to more easily connect with our vision, imagination, and sense of purpose.

“If you have a strong purpose in life, you don’t have to be pushed. Your passion will drive you there.” Roy T. Bennett

Question for Today: When you are feeling “on purpose with your life,” what action(s) are you taking? What activities are you engaged in?

This Date in History: On April 26, 1514 Copernicus made his first observations of Saturn.

Famous April 26 Birthdays: John James Audobon, Carol Burnett, Bernard Malamud.

“Without heroes we’re all plain people and don’t know how far we can go.” Bernard Malamud

Happy New Moon Blessings!

“The field of consciousness is tiny. It accepts only one problem at a time.” Antoine De Saint-Exupery

Cosmic Watch: Intellectual Mercury trines disciplined Saturn (4:15 am EDT). Our thinking caps are on today! Mercury-Saturn is an excellent aspect for concentration, planning, budgeting, organization and research. It favors serious discussions and presentations that call for relaying detailed information. Our words are parceled out more sparingly now and we also want to see proof or tangible results before we commit our resources, or sign on the dotted line. Keep in mind, though, that Mercury is still in its retrograde phase until May 3rd, which can mean decisions made now can later be reversed. Still this can be a productive time for conscientiously reviewing matters, cultivating sound judgment, as well as seeking wise counsel from those whose opinions and insights we value and respect. On another level, it may be a positive day to go for, or schedule, a hearing (audiological) test, or be fitted for a hearing aid. Saturn governs our hearing.

“Tell people there’s an invisible man in the sky who created the universe, and the vast majority will believe you. Tell them the paint is wet, and they have to touch it to be sure.” George Carlin 🙂

Mercury trine Saturn Archetypes: The Judge, the Scientist, the Architect

This Date in History: Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger was inaugurated as the 265th Pope of the Roman Catholic Church on April 24, 2005, taking the name Pope Benedict XVI.  In the sky, initiating Mars, in humanistic Aquarius, was exactly sextile to rejuvenating Pluto in philosophical Sagittarius, a sign which rules, among other things, organized religion and our higher beliefs. Mars-Pluto aspects tend to usher in transforming scenarios in our lives, including situations involving changes of power. There can also be a strong feeling or sense that we are experiencing a pivotal “rendezvous with destiny” when these two heavenly bodies intersect.

Astrology April 20, 2017: Pluto Stations Retrograde

Tags

, , , , , ,

“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.” Alice Walker

Pluto Stations Retrograde (8:46 am EDT): Pluto, which archetypally symbolizes the principle of power itself as well as themes of evolution and transformation, is stationing retrograde today at 19 degrees of Capricorn. It will be retrograde until September 28. Pluto retrograde, among other things, invites us to explore the whole concept of personal power: What does power mean to us? How do we generally wield our power? What makes us feel empowered? Also, we may want to consider what characteristically drains our energy or effectiveness, or puts us on the defensive. Pluto retrograde can also create greater awareness of what is broken or outworn in our lives. The house in our natal chart that Pluto is retrograding in will also be energized now and the areas of life ruled by that house may be up for renewal or some kind of overhaul.

This Date in History: On April 20, 1993 Uranu,s passes Neptune (happens once every 171 years)

Famous April i20 Birthdays: George Takei, Ryan O’Neal, Carmen Electra, Luther Vandross, Adolph Hitler, Jessica Lange, Leah Whitehorse

“I appreciate failure. Failure means that an attempt was made, and a lesson can be learned. As long as we’re alive after the effort, there is a chance for success the next time around.” George Takei

Astrology April 19, 2017: Sun Enters Taurus

“Flying starts from the ground. The more grounded you are, the higher you fly.” J.R. Rim

Sun Enters Taurus: The Sun, the key principle of vital energy that signifies the conscious ego and self-directedness, shifts out of pioneering Aries into sustaining Taurus today (5:27 pm EDT), where it will hang out patiently for the next thirty days. While the Sun is deposited in earthy Taurus we anchor and narrow our range of interests and focus on making our lives more safe and secure. Venus-ruled Taurus governs money, possessions, and our values. The keywords for this sign are “I have.”

Among the things that we may want to reflect upon now is how our personal identity is often closely intertwined with what we have or own. For instance, a question that we might want to ask of ourselves is, “Who are we really, apart from all our stuff?” We may also want to consider how we characteristically manage our resources, and how that style of stewardship may be helping or hurting us.

“Money is an amazing teacher: What you choose to do with your money shows whether you are truly powerful or powerless.” Suze Orman

“We can say what we need to say. We can gently, but assertively, speak our mind. We do not need to be judgmental, tactless, blaming or cruel when we speak our truths.” Melody Beattie

Venus Square Saturn: This aspect is in effect now through April 21st, when it becomes exact. Venus, the Goddess of Love and Beauty, archetypally represents how we give and receive love and affection. It also symbolizes what we value as well as our artistic or creative sensibilities. When Venus is aligned with Saturn, we may take a more practical or mature view of our relationships as Saturn denotes the realm of tried-and-true experience. It is the reality principle. Optimally, we may want to use this Venus-Saturn time to be deeply honest with ourselves about matters of the heart, and to not be afraid to set appropriate boundaries. One of the gifts of Saturn is that it teaches us to stand on our own. A shadow manifestation of this Venus-Saturn influence is to feel blocked or cut off from others.

This Date in History: On April 18, 1975 John Lennon releases “Stand by Me.”

Astrology April 17, 2017: Sun Trines Saturn

“And a step backward, after making a wrong turn, is a step in the right direction.” Kurt Vonnegut

Sun trines Saturn (8:44 am EDT). This is a good day to check in with ourselves and eye our accomplishments. See what we’ve done and what we still need to do. Perhaps we’ve gotten sidetracked and now need to make a few course corrections.  When we are being guided by a clear vision and are also able to view our actions in their totality, it is often easier for us to stay on track. As an inventor, Edison made 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb. When a reporter asked, “How did it feel to fail 1,000 times?” Edison replied, “I didn’t fail 1,000 times. The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.” Sun trine Saturn inspires us to take a more mature or responsible approach to matters. It is associated with self-discipline and sustained effort.

This date in history: On April 17, 1964 the Ford Mustang was formally introduced ($2,368 base).

Famous April 17 Birthdays: William Holden, Harry Reasoner, Boomer Esiason

“Aging is an inevitable (Saturnian) process. I surely wouldn’t want to grow younger. The older you become, the more you know; your bank account of knowledge is much richer.” William Holden

Astrology for February 6, 2016: Sun Sextiles Uranus, Mercury Trines Jupiter

“There are times when I am so unlike myself that I might be taken for someone else of an entirely opposite character.” Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Movies, Black And White, Stars, White

COSMIC WEATHER:

In wake of Monday’s New Moon in “experimental” Aquarius, today is an excellent time to kind of take a “test run” of things with the Aquarian Sun forming an exact sextile to Uranus, the modern-day ruler of Aquarius. This vibrant and quickening influence potentially poises us to be more flexible or open-minded in situations, as well as inspires us to embrace the changes that we know are needed in our lives in order to hopefully have them flow more effortlessly and authentically from our true center. Albert Einstein once quipped that the measure of intelligence “is the ability to change.”

With that said, it might be a great day to hang out with people or types we normally would not associate with to broaden our outlook, especially since we also have relationship Venus squaring Uranus today as well, an aspect which can coincide with a desire for more freedom or newness in our connections. Sun-Uranus also favors involvement in group activities or humanitarian causes.

Mercury trine Jupiter additionally helps us to look at the big picture, today. It may also be important for us now to discuss topics that are more meaningful to us, or that reflect our core beliefs and values. Mercury-Jupiter is also associated with public speaking and publishing.

The “utilitarian” and waning Capricorn Moon is also very busy, today, forming six aspects, all this morning, before going void of course at 10:54 am. It will enter Aquarius at 12:59 am, Sunday morning, and will no longer be void.

“Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.” Andre Gide

Sunset, Island, Ship, Sea, Landscape

COSMIC WEATHER:

Today is one of those days when our propensity for “leaving the shoreline” is generously accentuated (Moon square Jupiter), particularly with the waning Moon still inhabiting “exploratory” Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius, until mid-evening (7:44 pm). The Sagittarius Moon is excellent for expanding our paradigms or worldviews. Then, when the Moon shifts into “cautious, Saturnian” Capricorn, we are ready, once again, to seek out safe harbor. The Moon is also “void-of-course” after its aspect to Jupiter (5:04 am).

This Date in History: Jefferson Davis is elected President of the Confederacy on February 4, 1861 (US Civil War). Also, on February 4, 1974, Patricia Hearst (19), daughter of publisher Randolph Hearst, is kidnapped by the Symbionese Liberation Army
