“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

Enjoy your day!

“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.

“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.

Some Famous People with Venus square Saturn in their Natal Chart: Oprah Winfrey, Lisa Marie Presley, Julia Child, Merv Griffin

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

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

Astrology for February 2, 2016: Moon Shifts into Adventurous Sagittarius

“Life is a blank canvas, and you need to throw all the paint on it you can.” Danny Kaye

Canvas, Paint, Stroke, Fractal, Math

COSMIC WEATHER:

The waning Moon remains in “probing” Scorpio until mid-morning (10:50 am), when it shifts into enthusiastic, “adventurous” Sagittarius, a lunar placement that naturally poises us for more outward action and risk-taking. While the Moon is “void-of-course” in Scorpio, we may want to concentrate our energy on finishing up old projects or tasks. Then, when it enters Sadge, we can embark upon new activities.

While the Moon is devoid of major aspects today. a highly noteworthy sextile from “initiating” Mars in Scorpio to “transforming” Pluto in Capricorn, which is exact tomorrow morning, is already beginning to exert its influence. Even though this is a short-term aspect, lasting only a few days, it can, on occasion, alter the landscape of our lives in rather profound or remarkable ways. Too, this may particularly be the case now because motivator Mars is very, very strong in Scorpio, a sign that it co-rules with Pluto. Also, we may feel a heightened sense of our own destiny now, or what it is that we were put on this earth to do.

COSMIC WEATHER:

The Moon will be residing in “intimate” Scorpio for the entire day. This lunar placement allows us to feel things more deeply, to peel back the layers. It also motivates us to act on our feelings or convictions in a determined manner that could transform our world in a palpable way, especially since the Moon is making planetary aspects to Mars (initiative), Pluto (renewal), Mercury (ideas), and Jupiter (opportunity).

Astrology for January 31, 2016: Mercury Squares Uranus

Tags

“It is a narrow mind which cannot look at a subject from various points of view.” George Eliot

Moon, Dream, Fantasy, Surreal, Night

COSMIC WEATHER:

The Moon in intense Scorpio today inspires us to seek out more passionate experiences that fully engage our emotions or senses. A flowing trine to “spiritual” Neptune (3:58 pm) also potentially enhances our empathy and psychic sensitivity. Too, an agreeable sextile to “collaborative” Venus (7:08 pm) works to stimulate our social, romantic, or artistic side. This might be a wonderful afternoon or evening for an outing to an art gallery, or to the theater. Or, to be involved in healing projects. The Moon is also in its Last Quarter phase, late tonight (at 10:28 pm). This could generate more of an impetus within us to sort out what’s working and what’s not, in preparation for the upcoming New Moon, next week

Intellectual Mercury is also forming a square to “restless” Uranus, tonight (10:41 pm). This dynamic and inventive energy can open our eyes to alternate ways of looking at issues. It can also trigger sudden inspirations or “light-bulb” moments in which we finally “get something” even if the matter has been explained to us several times before. On the shadow side, Mercury square Uranus can sometimes be a bit disruptive for us mentally. For instance, we are perhaps more apt to blurt out stuff now without really thinking about the consequences of our speech. Still, often embedded in the seeming disruption of a Mercury-Uranus transit is a hidden opportunity for us to get unstuck, as we temporarily feel less wedded to convention, or the “status quo.”

This Date in History: On January 31, 1865, Congress passes 13th Amendment, abolishing slavery in America (121-24). 

On January 31, 1876, the United States orders all Native Americans to move into reservations.

Astrology January 29th – 30th: Venus Sextiles Neptune

“You don’t have to go looking for love when it’s where you come from.” ~Werner Erhard

Flamingo, Valentine, Heart

COSMIC WEATHER:

The Moon continues in “relationship” Libra all of today and most of tomorrow (until 10:50 pm). Also, shortly after midnight on Saturday (12:52 am), the Mercury and Pluto “truth-seeking” conjunction, that has been around all week, finally becomes exact.

Late Saturday morning (11:45 am), Venus, the planetary ruler of Libra, is also forming a dreamy sextile aspect to “transcendent” Neptune, the higher octave of Venus. Venus symbolizes, among other things, the notion of “romantic love,” while Neptune goes one step further to archetypally epitomize “unconditional love,” or what some regard as “divine love,” or an “infinite love.”

Accordingly, when Venus and Neptune are paired together, there can be a tendency or desire to want to idealize our mates or partners, or to place them on the proverbial pedestal. Author Robert Brault once said that, “Love is the greatest touch-up artist of all.” 

This Venus-Neptune period can also be a time when our creativity crests.

*All times EST.

This Date in History: Adolf Hitler was named the German Chancellor on January 30, 1933. Interestingly, “rebellious” Uranus was also in Aries, as it is today, at 19 degrees, and also square to “transforming” Pluto, which was at 21 degrees of Cancer then. Also, the Sun (leadership) was conjunct (judgmental, restrictive) Saturn, and Uranus was quinqunx to a Mars-Jupiter conjunction in “purifying” Virgo. Jupiter was also at 22 degrees of Virgo, exactly the same degree where it is today. On the shadow side, when Mars and Jupiter align, we often seen a rise in fanaticism.

Also, that very same day in America, the “Lone Ranger” was heard on radio for the first time. The program ran for 2,956 episodes and ended in 1955.
