“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

We start out our ‘oh so jolly’ Monday with a waning trine between the Moon in adventurous Sagittarius and the Sun in initiating Aries (10:30 am), an ideal time, perhaps, for broadening the scope of our lives, stretching our limits. Maybe also for doing a little preaching, teaching, or possibly even performing a few, full-scale conversions, if we’re up to it, that is, depending upon our personal opportunities, inclinations, and or schedules. Keeping in mind, too, of course, that logical, analytical Mercury is still a bit fuzzy around the eyeballs because of its continuing hookup with nebulous, intoxicated Neptune. In other words, it seems we possibly may have the big picture covered, for today, at least, with the visionary Sadge Moon. But, it’s those annoying little details that could possibly mess us up, along the way. What do they say, too, that the devil’s in the details? Yup.

Too, with Mercury covering speech, we may want to be very discreet with respect to what we say in the confessional, and to whom, as we could be easily misunderstood and possibly end up with having to do more penance than is called for or deserved. Just sayin’…Trying to keep all the purgatorial sentences light around here. 🙂

On This Day in History: On March 25, 1969, John Lennon and Yoko Ono stage their first ‘bed-in for peace’ in Amersterdam. Astrologically, in the sky, that day, the Aries Sun was separating from a conjunction with Chiron in pioneering Aries, which is something that we also just had, a few days ago. The Sun and Chiron were also opposite both philosophical Jupiter and radical, anti-establishment Uranus. Both Jupiter and Uranus were conjunct in Libra, the sign of peace, harmony, and relationships. Fascinatingly, lovable Venus (retrograde) and manifesting Saturn were also both exactly conjunct in bold, spirited Aries, that day. The Moon was also waxing in playful, communicative Gemini. John Lennon (b. 10/9/40) also had, in his chart, the transiting Chiron in Aries exactly opposite his natal, assertive, sexual Mars in matrimonial Libra. The transiting Aries Sun was also exactly trine Lennon’s natal, transformational Pluto in theatrical, exhibitionist Leo.

“If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there’d be peace.” John Lennon

Today’s Astrology March 24, 2019: Mercury Retrograde Conjunct Neptune

Cosmic Weather:

“And then there are days of being lost in the woods, not knowing the fate, but just being a wanderer. That’s life.” Anonymous

When you really think about it, being lost, in itself, isn’t something that’s necessarily good or bad. It’s when you’re lost, and you know that you’re lost – that’s when life can get way more complicated! And, fast! Because in the latter scenario, instead of simply enjoying being clueless, being a so-called wanderer, being lost in space, or in the woods, whatever, you’re now spending nearly all your dang time and energy trying to figure out where the heck you are! And, how to get back! 🙂

Okay…

So it’s round two of the Mercury (thoughts, reasoning, ideas) Neptune (idealism, fantasy, deception) meetup today. First time they hooked up was on February 19 at the time of the Virgo Full Moon. Now we have Mercury in its retrograde phrase, at this second meetup. April 2nd will be when Mercury and Neptune have their final warm embrace, with Mercury stationing direct on March 28, and still at 16 degrees of Pisces. The same degree where it is now, and will remain, until April 1st, or April Fool’s Day. Which should, right away, raise another big red flag! 🙂

So, essentially, we have mental Mercury conjunct blank screen Neptune in fishy Pisces for really the next several days. During this time, some of us may be lost, literally and or symbolically, and not know it. Others of us may know that we’re lost, but don’t yet know how to get unlost or found. (For astrology newbies, Mercury conjunct Neptune, on the shadow side, is associated with confusion, misinformation, things being up in the air, scandals, cover-ups, innuendos.)  To top it off, we have the newly-released Mueller report supposedly getting ready to float around the halls of Capitol Hill. Ad nauseum, no doubt. Probably for decades!

Plus, here’s a fact that nobody in the media is reporting: Russia’s Vladimir Putin (b. 10/7/52) also has, in his own natal horoscope, Mercury conjunct Neptune (in of the sign Libra)! And, it’s a close, two-degree conjunction! Yet, President Trump still insists “there’s been absolutely no Russian collusion…” Hey, buddy, we all know otherwise. All we have to do is look up in the frickin’ sky! Mercury and Neptune are colluding! Right this very minute. Boy oh boy… the guy must be blind or something. Plus Putin’s own natal horoscope confirms what we’re seeing and shows his own planetary involvement in the situation! Gee wiz! It’s a late March slam dunk, if you ask me! 🙂

Then there’s poor Robert Mueller (b. 8/7/44). He also has the transiting Mercury-Neptune conjunction today exactly opposite his natal Mars and Chiron conjunction at 16 degrees of Virgo. So, he’s, no doubt, also in a foggy state (and will be for a while), and probably feels that a lot of the work (Virgo) that he’s been putting into the investigation, over the last two years, will probably end up being either misunderstood or misrepresented. A lot of the time, Mars-Neptune aspects can be not only ego-denying, but also exhaustive – mentally, emotionally, and physically. He’s probably so happy to finally be able kick this baby to the curb!

Famous March 24 Birthdays: Dorothy Height, Steve McQueen, Peyton Manning, Harry Houdini

“All you need to do is organize your butterflies.” Dorothy Height.

Born in Virginia in 1912, Dorothy Height was a leader in addressing the rights of both women and African Americans as the president of the National Council of Negro Women. In the 1990s, she drew young people into her cause in the war against drugs, illiteracy and unemployment. The numerous honors bestowed upon her include the Presidential Medal of Freedom (1994) and the Congressional Gold Medal (2004). She died on April 20, 2010, in Washington, D.C. (biography.com)

In Height’s horoscope, among other things, she had Venus (women) in empathetic Pisces (the sign ruling civil rights) in a tight conjunction with wounded healer Chiron. Intellectual Mercury was also in trailblazing Aries and exactly square to idealistic Neptune in Cancer, no doubt, supplying her with plenty of vision and imagination in reaching for her goals. Her Mercury was also sextile to Mars and Pluto, which were tightly conjunct in information-minded, communicative Gemini (Height was also an administrator, educator, and author). People with Mars and Pluto conjunct tend to be strong transformational figures and with this conjunction occurring in articulate Gemini she would likely be very persuasive in her speech and communication of her ideas.

Anyway, hope you enjoy your Sunday!…Remember, too,… if you’re feeling a little lost, all you need to do is take three steps forward. Then two steps back. Then take another four steps forward. Or, you may want to try, just going backwards with all your steps, since Mercury is in retrograde motion. It’s really all up to you. Whatever you decide. I can only advise you, at this point, as your lowly, humble, clueless astrologer.

Today’s Astrology March 23, 2019: Sun in Aries, Moon in Scorpio

Cosmic Weather:

“Your mind is like a gold mine, if you dig deep, you will find something golden.” Gift Gugu Mona

With the Sun still deposited in the early degrees of fast-forwarding Aries, there’s plenty of desire now to see it all, do it all, to make it all happen. At the same time, however, the Moon’s passage through tunneling Scorpio also gives us the inclination to scale deeper with things, to probe, to investigate (for maybe combing through the newly-completed Mueller report? The report was released with the Aries Sun exactly conjunct wounded healer Chiron!).

Additionally, the Scorpio Moon can serve to awaken our passions. It’s often said that uncovering what we’re passionate about in life, and engaging in those passions on a regular basis, often goes a long way in determining the quality of our life. In other words, there’s seemingly a lot of power in passion. In having something to do that fills us with joy. That makes us lose track of time. I enjoy blogging here because it gives me a sense of purpose. Makes me feel more alive in the morning, which at my age, is quite an accomplishment! 🙂 What often trips me up with the blogging, though, and maybe you can relate, is when I inject the self-critical or judgmental piece into the equation. I’ll write something that I think is okay at the time, but a few minutes later, when I re-read it, I’ll suddenly hate it, and will want to strike the darn thing from the face of the earth! Probably part of the whole dark, sick Scorpio birth, death, rebirth thing! But hey, it’s all good! It’s how we presumably learn and grow. 

On this Day in History: On March 23, 1945, the Battle of Okinawa occurred. US Navy ships bomb the Japanese island of Okinawa in preparation for the Allied invasion. It would become the largest battle of the Pacific War during World War II. In the sky on that fateful day, the Sun was in confrontational Aries, the sign of the military, and exactly opposite the Chiron and Neptune midpoint in Libra. The Sun was also applying to a square to Saturn in Cancer; Saturn was also squaring both Chiron and Neptune. Mars, the ruler of war, was also at 29 degrees of Aquarius, a critical degree.

Cosmic Weather:

“Real dishes break. That’s how you know they’re real.” Marty Rubin

With the empowering Sun conjunct Chiron in motivated Aries today, there’s an opportunity to become more aware of parts of our personality, or, perhaps, elements of our life, that we normally may not pay much attention to: the vulnerabilities or sensitivities; the hidden wounds. Generally, Sun-Chiron tends to promote self-honesty. Even though, initially, we could be a little wigged out by some of what may be coming up for us now, internally. Kind of like when we get the initial estimate of costs to repair our car when we bring it into the dealership. “Holey moley!” But then, after the preliminary shock wears off, we somehow manage to settle ourselves down. We then go ahead and get the ole’ clunker repaired and get it back on the road again. Sometimes, too, just asking ourselves ‘Is this a productive thought? Is it getting me closer to where I want to be?’ can often help to move us beyond our difficulties, beyond the stranglehold of the past, and propel us to take positive action toward our future.

“Worn old shoes need a good cobbler to be repaired; but worn old thoughts, only a rubbish bin!” Mehmet Murat Ildan

“Know that the people who live the longest and the richest lives are looking ahead and not behind.” William Shatner

On this day in history: On March 22, 1957 “All Shook Up” single was released by Elvis Presley (b. 1/8/35). The song was also later named Billboard’s Year End number one song for 1957 (Wikipedia).

Astrologically, in his natal chart the day of its release, transiting Jupiter (the Santa Claus archetype) was retrograde at 26 degrees of Virgo or exactly conjunct his Midheaven (career house). Traditionally interpreted as a very propitious or lucky time for a person, professionally. Jupiter was also applying to a one-degree sextile to transforming Pluto in Cancer in his 8th house of shared resources, an influence favorable for augmenting finances as well as for potentially receiving material backing or other kinds of support from influential individuals.

Today’s Astrology March 9, 2019: Aries Moon Squares Pluto

Cosmic Weather:

“Never complain of that of which it is at all times in your power to rid yourself.” Adam Smith

The Moon spends another full day in active Aries, this Saturday, so anything that has a physical element to it gets a nod, if you’re up to it, that is. Also, this morning is an excellent time for any decluttering or refurbishing projects, especially on the homefront, as the Aries Moon is forming a square to eliminating and rebirthing Pluto (11:56 am).

On a personal note, the other day while I was cleaning out a small storage cabinet that I hadn’t looked inside for ages, I found several brand new items that I had no memory of ever buying. It was a little bit like embarking upon the thrill of the hunt! Unfortunately, though, I didn’t locate any misplaced, winning lotto tickets. 🙂 You sometimes hear about people doing that. Finding a ticket worth millions of dollars underneath an old girdle in a drawer. Or maybe under a pair of holey socks. You also gotta’ wonder, if you’re into astrology, what in the world did they have in their horoscope at the time they discovered the ticket? Maybe an aspect to Pluto? Pluto is associated with hidden treasure and excavation. Then, too, when you pair Pluto with Jupiter, that’s often when you stumble upon real mega-wealth!

Now, as fate would have it, would you believe that the Moon’s last major aspect in Aries today, before going void, is actually a trine to lucky Jupiter in Sagittarius ( 12:14 pm)? Could it be that we’re all on the edge of victory here??? That all we need to do is summon our inner Sherlock Holmes and, instead of heading for the hills, head for the drawers? As corny as that sounds.

The darn thing has gotta’ be around here somewhere! … 🙂

*All times EST

This Day in History: On March 9, 1776, the influential economics book “The Wealth of Nations” by Scottish economist and moral philosopher, Adam Smith, was published. This classic book offers, among other things, one of the world’s first collected descriptions of what builds nations’ wealth (Wikipedia).

In the sky on the date of the book’s publication, analytical Mercury was retrograde in creative Pisces (just like it is now) and had just separated from an exact square to philosophical Jupiter in information-oriented Gemini, a sign which is also ruled by Mercury. Mercury and Jupiter, of course, both govern our writing, thoughts, and ideas. Too, when these two planets are paired together is when you often will find more voluminous or comprehensive types of writing on a subject. Additionally, Jupiter is also the “wealth” planet and rules the world’s financial systems.

“Man is an animal that makes bargains: no other animal does this – no dog exchanges bones with another.”  Adam Smith

Astrology March 8, 2019: Moon in Aries, Sun Sextile Saturn

Cosmic Weather:

“Action may not always bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action. ” William James

The Moon in enterprising, self-focused Aries, all day, motivates us to take direct action on matters, especially action on our own behalf, as well as inspiring us to want to birth something new. We’re also more comfortable with some measure of constraint or discipline placed upon our energy now, especially as the day develops, due to a sextile forming between the Sun in Pisces and perfecting Saturn in Capricorn, which will be exact early tomorrow morning (2:10 am). The Sun-Saturn aspect helps us to cut through the fog and build upon our previous successes. It can potentially offer us some clear guidance or insight into our strengths and weaknesses and how to wield our power in such a way that we’re able to make the best use of our available time and resources. This is also an excellent time to establish or re-establish our priorities. Keeping in mind, too, that Mercury is now retrograde in Pisces so we may be able to presently perceive some things that we might have missed, earlier. Or, we may see things, now, in a new light. Additionally, the Sun-Saturn influence is positive for interactions with authority figures, employers, and those who may act as our mentors. It’s also favorable for retirement planning, or for dealing with issues that affect older individuals. By the way, according to recent statistics, age 62 is the most common age to retire in the U.S. 

“Retire from work, but not from life.” – M.K. Soni

*All times ET.

This Day in History: On March 8, 1973, the Eisenhower Tunnel, the world’s highest and US longest, opens 60 miles west of Denver, Colorado. The tunnel was considered an engineering feat, at the time. In the sky that day, expansive Jupiter was in innovative Aquarius, the sign that also governs engineering, and forming almost an exact trine (less than one degree) to transforming Pluto in connecting Libra. Jupiter, along with Mercury, rule travel, and Pluto governs tunnels. On a collective level, Jupiter-Pluto energy often allows us to reshape or transform our world on a large-scale level. It is also an aspect that is associated with mining the riches of the earth. By the way, the Moon was also in earthy Taurus, that day, the sign of its exaltation.

Hope you enjoy your day! Unfortunately, I’m still not able to be back with you on a regular basis, but hopefully, that will change soon.

Astrology February 24, 2019: Revisiting an Old New Moon in Pisces

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

Happy Sunday! The Moon in rejuvenating Scorpio today invigorates our passions! We’re feeling things very deeply now. And, also wanting some alone time. There are moments of transcendence (2:30 pm ET Moon trine Neptune) and periods of tangible success (5:21 pm ET Moon sextile Saturn).

Down below, is also another look at a blog I wrote back on February 21, 2012, about the New Moon in Pisces, that day. At the time, the New Moon was also conjunct the planet Neptune, which will also be the case with the upcoming Pisces New Moon on March 6, 2019.  I also talk about Pope Benedict and Whitney Houston in it. I always like to write about what’s going on in the collective, in my blogs, because I think the outer, often reflects the inner. It’s also good, in my opinion, to have the past as a point of reference for today. To sort of check out the overlap, if any.  Anyway, hope you enjoy it!

On a personal note, I’m in the middle of a big move now, so my life is a bit topsy-turvy. Don’t have much time for blogging. Barely have time to breath! But, will be back with you soon! I also want you to know that I, very much, appreciate all of you reading my blog. 

Blessings,

Patrice Thompson

COSMIC WATCH:

A New Moon in “compassionate” Pisces is taking place today (5:35 pm EST). We have a chance to align ourselves with the more “soulful” vibrations of this sign, as a way of renewal now. Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, a space in which we put aside our ego and earthly ambitions to focus on nurturing our “inner world,” the domain of our feelings, dreams, imagination, creativity and intuition. In The Power of IntentionWayne Dyer writes that our imagination is “God within us.”

Today’s New Moon is also conjunct “transcendent” Neptune in Pisces, something that has not happened in 165 years. Neptune is the modern day ruler of Pisces. It is also the planet that formally governs our imagination. Neptune is linked with prophecy, scripture, clerics, mystics, saints, angels, artists, poets, musicians, and healers. Neptune and Pisces also preside over those persons who could be described as “downtrodden,” or down on their luck. Also, they both govern disenfranchised elements, minority groups, civil rights’ matters, and individuals with addiction issues.

Interestingly, on the eve of the Sun’s conjunction with Neptune, last weekend, Pope Benedict announced seven new saints and also appointed 22 new Cardinals. Too, we had the high-profile funeral or “going home” ceremony for singer Whitney Houston, someone who also publicly struggled with substance abuse issues. On another level, Neptune rules oil, and headlines about rising gas prices have been dominating the news, the last few days.

We will want to note “the house” in our personal horoscopes that the New Moon is falling in, as that is the area of our life where we may be feeling more of a need for reflection now. It is also where we have a chance to be more creative, and where we can set powerful new intentions for ourselves. Too, it may be where we may be called upon to give back to others now. “The value of a man resides in what he gives and not in what he is capable of receiving.” Albert Einstein

“Some New Moon in Pisces activities: going on spiritual retreats; meditation; yoga and breath work; house blessings; photography; film-making; acting; painting; dancing and choreography; singing and songwriting; swimming; fishing; boating; spa treatments; costume-design; beauty-makeovers; purchasing cosmetics; volunteering; pet rescue and adoption; going to plays, movies; psychic development; séances; random acts of kindness; visiting shut-ins or others who are confined; tithing; pardoning, and other acts of forgiveness.

Happy New Moon Blessings!

Today’s Astrology February 22, 2019: Not Quite Ready For Prime Time

Tags

, , , , , , , , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

“It is always the novice who exaggerates.” C.S. Lewis

Mercury in Pisces squares Jupiter in Sagittarius (3:40 pm)

While we may be very jazzed up about our ideas, beliefs, and points of view today, including, perhaps, very eager and ready to perform full-fledged Jupiterian proselytizations on anyone who will give us just five minutes, chances are that we’re not quite ready for prime time yet! At least, that is, our ideas, etc. might not be fully ready for their big Broadway stage debuts. Had to clarify that! Of course, we’re ready! We’re always ready! 🙂

Often with Mercury square Jupiter in play, there’s a tendency for us to overpromise, overexaggerate, and bloviate, in general. We’re also more prone to overlooking key details because we’re less inclined to want to concentrate our attention now. Still, though, today can be a fun, stimulating time for conversation, or for writing. Especially in the first half of the day, as this energy is applying.  That’s because, again, there’s a certain largeness to our thinking now that feels very positive. Our mental faculties are also being s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d. Mercury in Pisces is also already in its shadow phase, getting ready to turn retrograde on March 5, so we’re going to have this Mercury-Jupiter square, two more times, before it’s all over. Hopefully, we’ll get to see more of this evolving picture, each time it occurs. Eventually knowing exactly what to do! Anyway, hope always springs eternal here!

Venus Conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn (10:49 pm)

“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

As we move more into the second half of the day, we’re likely going to be feeling more of the emotional intensity of the Venus-Pluto conjunction. This aspect can make us especially want to go deeper with our relationships, and to look at things that we may have not wanted to face before. But, now, we’re likely wanting to get to the bottom of things, maybe about ourselves, another person, or a situation, possibly because we no longer want to be living a lie, or an illusion. Or, things may have also reached a critical point now, where there’s no longer even an option of our turning back.

Additionally, we may also want to be healed now from whatever has been weighing us down, or holding us back. There’s definitely a lot of raw emotion out there now. And, ideally, it can be used for transformational purposes. But, first, we must scale to the depths and be willing to look at, unflinchingly, the true nature of things. See what comes up for us from below, and then release it, or try let it go.

It’s also interesting now that, with this Venus-Pluto conjunction taking place in authoritative Capricorn, Pope Francis is hosting a historic summit on combatting clergy sex abuse in the Catholic Church. On the shadow side, Venus-Pluto is sometimes associated with sexual abuse. Pluto specifically governing such things as sexually deviant or hidden or clandestine forms of behavior, violating sexual taboos, fetishes, obsessions, and even hate crimes. It can also translate into our wanting to be on a power trip of sorts. Wanting to, perhaps, exert maximum control over others for our own selfish purposes or gratification. Or, on the flip side, we may encounter or hear about individuals now who behave in this manner. Today, Pope Francis (b. 12/17/36) also has, in his natal chart, transiting Mars exactly conjunct his Uranus in Taurus in his tenth house of career and public standing. Mars-Uranus often signifying a powerful period when a person is called upon to initiate (Mars) radical reforms (Uranus). Uranus right now, too, is at 29 degrees of pioneering Aries, a critical degree in which we often feel compelled to take last-minute or final action on something that has been building for a while. What’s more, Pope Francis has his natal midheaven at 0 degrees of Taurus! So Uranus is getting ready to cross over it, in a few days. It’s likely that today’s summit is just the beginning, or a sampling, of what is probably going to be unfolding, in the future, around the Pope, and with the church, for a long time to come.

On another level, this can also be a time when we get more reality-focused about our finances, including possibly wanting to take measures to turn things around for the positive. 

UPDATED: More Venus-Pluto high-profile type stories in the headlines today! This afternoon, singer R. Kelly was reportedly charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, some involving underage victims, according to US media reports.  Also, Patriots owner Robert Kraft was, the billionaire owner of the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots, was charged today with two counts of soliciting sex as part of a wide-ranging investigation into prostitution and suspected human trafficking in South Florida (New York Times).

Astrology February 21, 2019: Venus Conjuncts Passionate Pluto in Capricorn

“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs are people who have come alive.” Howard Thurman

COSMIC WEATHER:

Connection queen Venus, symbolizing the urge for love and beauty in our lives, is conjunct Pluto in Capricorn on Feb. 22 (at 10:49 pm EST). With this aspect, relationships can potently transform us now. We may also have more of a need for intense emotional experiences. What has been buried and hidden in our subconscious (Pluto), our deepest desires and feelings, could also rise to the surface now. Too, Venus-Pluto can, on occasion, bring us our “soul mates,” or important alliances from our past. Even new, short-term relationships are more likely to impact us now on a deeper emotional level. On the shadow side, because Pluto also symbolizes our urge for power and control, this energy sometimes finds us acting manipulatively or being too possessive, especially if we feel that our relationships are being threatened or undermined in any way.

On a professional level, this influence can also be excellent for networking as we are likely to be much more persuasive.

Enjoy your day!

Today’s Astrology February 20, 2019: Virgo Moon, Sun Semi-square Saturn

Cosmic Weather:

“Our abilities to understand, adjust, and change make us wise.” – Debashish Mridha M.D.

Moon in Virgo:

Don’t you just love to hear the phrase, “May I help who’s next?” when you’re the one who’s next in line? Especially if you’ve been waiting seemingly forever to be waited on? Anyway, today has this same kind of feel to it. Sort of like we’re having to stand in line, conduct our official business, do some revisions or rewrites with respect to our projects or plans before we’re allowed to bust out of the gate. Even then, we’re likely not going to be busting out of anything now, but rather moving ahead at more of a slow, cautious pace. The Moon is still in perfecting Virgo, and Mama Virgo is doing her thing! Committed to continuing her heroic efforts to whip us into shape! Plus, with Luna’s trine to transforming Pluto in Capricorn, later today (8:51 pm), it could be she may actually be able to work a miracle or two for us!

Moon trine Pluto favors restorations or refurbishings, decluttering, detox efforts, succession-planning, and panning for gold (both internally and externally).

Sun in Pisces semi-square Saturn in Capricorn:

This aspect kind of plays right into the hands of the corrective Virgo Moon energy to the extent that it can make us feel, on the shadow side, that we’re not good enough as we are. That we should possibly strive, instead, to conform to some kind of hallowed cultural yardstick of what is uniformly exemplary or acceptable. Of course, we don’t need to buy into this type of self-limiting or self-abnegating doctrine. Better to focus our efforts on building affirmatively upon how we already are, or how we want to be, and taking empowering action to move into that direction. “It is not as much about who you used to be, as it is about who you choose to be.” Sanhita Baruah. On another level, sometimes this planetary aspect can coincide with our having to shift course, or needing to cut our losses with something.

Sun semi-square Saturn also favors, among other things, taking preventive health measures to possibly shore up our bones or dental health. May also be a time when we re-consider or revise some of our plans for retirement.

On This Day in History: On February 20, 1962, John Glenn becomes the first American to orbit the Earth, aboard Friendship 7. Mars (pioneering) and Jupiter (expansion) were both in Aquarius, the sign which governs space travel. Analytical Mercury had also just stationed direct in research-oriented Virgo, the sign of its rulership, and was getting ready to conjunct transformative Pluto. Mercury-Pluto aspects, especially the conjunction, are often associated with deep or intense life-altering experiences that can drastically change our perceptions or consciousness about something.

*All time EST.

Enjoy your day!
