“You’ll see it when you believe it.” – Wayne W. Dyer

Our sense of confidence, optimism, and personal power could all be on the rise now as the authoritative Sun in renewing Scorpio trines expansive Jupiter Rx in imaginative, caring Pisces (11:07 pm). This influence is commonly thought to be a very propitious time to take important steps toward our goals or vision.

Jupiter serves as the official philosopher of the zodiac and also epitomizes or symbolizes positive thinking or a can-do spirit as well as fostering a deeper understanding, which can also occasionally lead to such things as the emergence of some cool aha moments or possibly experiencing amazing synchronicities (meaningful coincidences), which may help to steer us further along on our Soul’s special path. 

At the least, it is a good day to do something fun – maybe travel or sightseeing? – or engage in an activity that fills our hearts with joy or positivity.  It is also an excellent time to reach out to others – especially, perhaps, those persons who may be down on their luck for whatever reason – to show them some bighearted compassion and generosity; Sun trine Jupiter, archetypally, can also denote “channeling our inner Santa.”

“Courage. Kindness. Friendship. Character. These are the qualities that define us as human beings and propel us, on occasion, to greatness.” – R.J. Palacio

*All times EST

On This Day in History: On November 20, 1947, Princess Elizabeth marries Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten (who becomes the Duke of Edinburgh) at Westminster Abbey in London. Elizabeth and Philip were married for 73 years until Philip’s death in April 2021 at 99 years old. Their lifelong love story actually began when they were teenagers.

Astrologically, when Elizabeth and Philip tied the knot, romantic Venus was in playful Sagittarius and harmoniously trine to Mars (passion), Saturn (longevity), and Pluto (transformational), with the latter three planets all conjunct in the regal sign of Leo. Too, Venus was sextile to fantasy Neptune – in the matrimonial sign of Libra – no doubt, injecting an element of a storybook romance into the cosmic equation.

Hope it’s a good one! Please be safe and well.

Astrology October 9, 2022: Full Moon in Aries

“I found power in accepting the truth of who I am. It may not be a truth that others can accept, but I cannot live any other way. How would it be to live a lie every minute of your life?” – Alison Goodman

Nice enough quote. But unfortunately, for those of us who may still be a little or a lot baffled navigating through the hazy, never-ending, much-ballyhooed ‘self-discovery process,’ today’s revelatory Full Moon in “I Am” Aries may feel enormously intimidating and frustrating as it boldly prompts us to make ourselves a priority, to take chances, and to live out our whole truth on an impromptu stack of bibles or coloring books or whatever is available or handy at the moment. Yet, where is the official, step-by-step instruction manual on precisely how to do all this? There has got to be one lurking about somewhere. After all, it is 2022! We did not just arrive here by boat yesterday. Too, not everyone is interested in reinventing the wheel. Maybe that is because we are not yet that desperate!

Also, what if we fall off a cliff in the process of flying by the seat of our pants? – a common Aries practice. Who is going to be there to rescue us toting a big bowl of hot chicken soup? Chances are nobody! – except maybe a plaintiff’s attorney born under the sign of Cancer. But that is how the fearless Full Moon in Aries rolls: We are pretty much on our own – and that’s that – and we are supposed to revel and delight in this awful, woeful Libra-denying reality.

But isn’t it also natural – and actually very healthy and maybe admirable – to declare that we may have cold feet or serious doubts about all the supposed ultimate payoffs of giving ourselves full rein to be exactly who we are? Meaning we would perhaps rather just wait it out until the final verdict is in.

Plus, today’s Full Moon conjuncts wounded warrior Chiron – which likely means we will be shamed big time if we even think for a moment about comparing ourselves to others. Even worse if we find ourselves lacking in the comparison – which no doubt would ostracize us for life from participating in nearly everything under both the Sun and Moon combined. Cannot even imagine a much worse fate – except maybe also being banned for life from Twitter. Think I am already feeling Wednesday’s “out-of-body” Mars-Neptune square. 🙂

“I refuse to join any club that would have me as a member.” – Groucho Marx

If it were only that easy.

Born On This Day: Beatle John Lennon in 1940 in Liverpool, England (d. 1980):

“When you do something noble and beautiful and nobody notices, do not be sad. For the sun every morning is a beautiful spectacle and yet most of the audience still sleeps.”

Happy Full Moon blessings! Hope it’s fun! Please be safe and well.

Astrology October 6, 2022: Mercury Trine Pluto

Cosmic Weather:

“The best vision is insight.” – Malcolm Forbes

Perhaps the third time will be a charm as intellectual Mercury – now moving direct in solutions-oriented Virgo – forms a flowing trine to penetrating, transformational Pluto (11:56 pm), with the latter planet also stationing direct, just two days from now, on October 8th at 26 degrees of Capricorn; Mercury and Pluto were also trined earlier on August 22nd and September 27th as part of the Winged Messenger’s retrograde cycle.

Accordingly, now may be a propitious period to finally figure out what may have eluded us before as elements that may have been blocking or obscuring our view or progress are cleared away or begin to retreat at the moment.

Astrologers often compare Mercury-Pluto alignments to having X-ray vision. The harmonious trine aspect also tends to operate or unfold with relative ease – although anytime Mercury and Pluto are paired there does also potentially tend to be more of an obsessive component at play with our thoughts or thinking as we may feel more gripped by various factors now, that possibly keep propelling us to want to go deeper and deeper into matters. It can be an excellent time for research.

With Mercury also governing communication it is possible that words can be used in a more riveting or persuasive way now to achieve our goals or objectives. (Mystery writer Agatha Christie had her natal Mercury in Libra trine to her Pluto in Gemini.)

“Whatever words we utter should be chosen with care for people will hear them and be influenced by them for good or evil.” – Buddha

Meanwhile, the Waxing Moon also shifts from detached Aquarius to sensitive Pisces (8:47 am), a lunar period often associated with release or healing.

Hope it’s a good one! Please be safe and well.

Astrology September 5, 2022: Venus Enters Virgo

Cosmic Weather:

“There is no excellence without labor. One cannot dream oneself into either usefulness or happiness.” – Liberty Hyde Bailey

Overnight, Venus – the planet of love, pleasure, finances, and values – joined the Sun in earthy, refining Virgo (12:05 am) where it will reside until September 29th. This transit potentially ups our desire to be of service or utility to others in practical ways that not only impart our love or appreciation for those we care about but also aim to improve the natural order of things around us.

Self-improvement endeavors may also gain traction now with Virgo being the sign of health and wellness; there may also be more of an affinity or fondness now for formally charting our results or progress in these areas. Organizing our finances may also be something else that we are now more concerned about.

(I actually dreamt last night of marking down all my daily activities and checking how much time I spent on each endeavor which, I’ve read and know, is a great way to hold ourselves accountable for what we do – or fail to do each day. Too – at least in my case – it can often be very humbling to see how long it sometimes takes me to perform even the simplest of tasks.)

Since Virgo also governs work and job skills Venus’s passage through this sign may result in our taking more pleasure at this time in our work or in perfecting our craft. It is also an excellent time to take measures to improve the workplace.

On the shadow side, Venus in Virgo tends to worry about relationships. Being overly critical of others can also be a turn-off.

“Watch out for the joy-stealers: gossip, criticism, complaining, faultfinding, and a negative, judgmental attitude.” – Joyce Meyer

The Waxing Moon is also in ambitious, methodical Capricorn today, boding well for follow-through with tasks. The Moon’s trine to the Virgo Sun (8:25 pm) also helps to promote a greater sense of inner and outer well-being.

Born On This Day: Late British rock star and lead vocalist of Queen, Freddie Mercury (1946-1991):

Hope it’s a good one. Please be safe and well!

Astrology September 4, 2022: Moon Squares Nebulous Neptune

Cosmic Weather:

“We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.” – Iris Murdoch

The Waxing Moon in truth-seeking Sagittarius squares shape-shifter Neptune Rx in Pisces (12:32 pm EDT) – For a myriad of reasons, it seems that we often tend to see mainly what we want to see in a situation and, more or less, pitch the rest. Unless we are maybe prodded or challenged to do a deeper dive into a matter, at which time, we may then discover – much to our chagrin or horror – that we have been laboring under an illusion – and a very persistent one at that! Of course, too, there are probably some of us, no doubt, who are much more talented or gifted than others with respect to being able to view or perceive things in a chronically “off-the-mark” manner. 🙂

Luna square fantasy Neptune does seem to exaggerate this perceived vulnerability in our perceptions as Neptune is thought to represent/depict, among other things, actual foggy conditions in nature – which can, accordingly, make it that much more difficult for us to see the underlying/surrounding reality of something. Neptune is also similarly associated with costume parties that hide/distort true identities.

So with Neptune’s alignment with the Sagittarius Moon – which archetypally reigns over our personal collection of beliefs, ideologies, convictions, and aspirations – it would appear that a possible challenge for us now may be to figure out or devise some kind of “low-beam” strategy that allows us to cut through some of the haze that may be shrouding or clouding our understanding of the bigger picture now.

Perhaps one way to do this may be to ask ourselves questions, such as: What might I be failing to see here? What might I be leaving out? How might it benefit me to purge, or let go of, or at least temporarily suspend, some of the storylines or narratives that I may have been telling myself, that may be suspect? Too, often when we pose questions to ourselves, it is akin to doing a Google search yielding a plethora of results. Another alternative here may be to do a Tarot reading and shuffle our questions into the cards.

“Without reflection, we go blindly on our way, creating more unintended consequences, and failing to achieve anything useful.” – Margaret J. Wheatley

Additionally, the Moon-Neptune influence may offer up a period of dreaminess; a longing for escape; immersion into activities such as meditation or yoga that provide us with a feeling of peace or transcendence.

*All times EDT

Born On This Day: Liz Green, American-British professional astrologer, author, Jungian analyst, and lecturer; one of the most highly respected astrologers of the 20th century. Liz is turning 76 today:

“Sometimes “inner work” requires an act of loyalty rather than an effort at transformation. Knowing what makes us happy (Venus), expressing this to others (Mercury), and standing firm in the face of opposition (Mars) may seem very petty against the more profound concerns of the outer world. Yet in their own way, these things are equally profound, for it is these small acts of self-affirmation that define the ego and ultimately the capacity to mediate the heavy planets with their destructive and transformative potentials.”

Hope it’s a good one. Please be safe and well!

Astrology September 3, 2022: First Quarter Moon in Sagittarius

Cosmic Weather:

“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit at home and think about it. Go out and get busy.” – Dale Carnegie

The Moon in Sagittarius Squares Sun in Virgo (2:08 pm) – This more restless First Quarter Moon signals that it is time for us to get down to business, putting our ideals, aspirations, and intentions into practice. While Luna in the sign of the archer may inspire us to pursue riskier or more daring targets/pursuits, ideally the Sun in synthesizing Virgo helps to shield or pad our actions with protective doses of precision and care so our efforts are hopefully able to gain traction.

Too, we may be provided today with ample opportunity to find creative ways to better manage/subdue/immobilize our inner critic (e.g. inner quality control specialist) so it knows to leave us alone – at least for the time being! 🙂

“Criticism, like rain, should be gentle enough to nourish a man’s growth without destroying his roots.” – Writer Frank A. Clark

Astrology for August 21, 2022: Mercury Opposes Neptune Rx

Tags

, , , , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

Some thick fog is on the horizon today, so we may wish to proceed with caution…

Intellectual Mercury in Virgo opposes fantasy planet Neptune Rx in Pisces (3:40 am):

This short-term annual occurrence tends to veil our senses, rebuffs logic, and may fuel untenable or highly speculative claims e.g. conspiracy theories. Needless to say, the communications sphere may be a bit twisted/confusing now as what we say, mean, or do might be misunderstood. Or what others say/reveal to us may not be the whole truth or enchilada even though they swear on a stack of bibles that it is!

Too, it’s possible someone may think they’re telling us the truth now but – unbeknownst to them – their perspective may be a bit warped or off target at the moment. Also on the shadow side, Mercury-Neptune may rachet up our emotional sensitivities perhaps leaving us more vulnerable to the harmful impact of harsher words or gestures. Likewise, we may want to avoid or sidestep certain persons now who tend to push our buttons.

On the positive side, this planetary configuration can be a real boon for our creativity as Neptune governs our imagination and it may be much easier for us now to conjure up or envision various scenarios or possibilities. We also may take more pleasure now in partaking in cultural or artistic outings.

On a practical level, perhaps one of the best ways to manage this sometimes trickier aspect, communication-wise, is to simply ask for more clarification, when in doubt, instead of assuming anything. We may also want to make sure that others understand the points that we are trying to convey. Fortunately, Luna is in articulate Gemini today until later this evening, so we may have more of a built-in readiness/capacity for dealing with all this back-and-forth type stuff. That said, it may also be best to hold off on any contractual signings/agreements/commitments for the time being as it still may be too easy to miss things.

On another level, we may find ourselves interested in pursuing more transcendental or spiritual matters today with Neptune signifying the non-material realm. Too, with Mercury governing the news, it’s possible that we may hear about more non-secular topics making headlines.

For instance, when Mercury in Virgo opposed Neptune in Pisces on September 2, 2012 (which was right after Neptune first entered its current transit of Pisces) there was the news of the death of self-proclaimed messiah Sun Myung Moon, at the age of 92, the founder of the Unification Church, a movement that is well-known for its “Blessing” or mass weddings ceremonies. The followers of Sun Myung Moon are commonly referred to as “Moonies.” (Wikipedia)

Some other things Neptune rules or is associated with: liquids, gases and chemicals, oil and gasoline, drugs and medication, addiction, and all visual forms of communication.

“Ultimately you want to have the entire world’s knowledge connected directly to your mind.” – Sergey Brin

On This Day in History: On August 21, 1987, the film “Dirty Dancing” directed by Emile Ardolino, and starring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey, opens in the US. The movie became an instant sensation and went on to become one of the highest-grossing films of 1987, also making Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey into bona fide stars. The film contains some of the greatest romantic one-liners of all time along with some amazing dance sequences.

The cosmic lineup was also pretty stellar on the day of the film’s release, with a stellium of planets in entertainment Leo – including the sexy duo Mars and Venus, exactly conjunct in playful Leo and exactly trine to expansive Jupiter in trail-blazing Aries.

“Nobody puts Baby in a corner.”

Hope it’s a good one! Please be safe and well.

Astrology for August 16, 2022: Mercury Trines Uranus

Tags

, , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

The Winged Messenger’s pairing with innovative Uranus gets top billing today!

Mercury in Virgo trines Uranus in Taurus at 1:46 pm – 

Keeping my fingers crossed here, but it seems that if we somehow manage to hold our heads up the right way today, we may just find that our thinking caps fit more snuggly now, which hopefully bodes better for our being able to put the cryptic puzzle pieces of our lives together in a more coherent – or at least semi-coherent fashion – so that the world around us appears a little less baffling or intimidating to us. In fact, it could be that we may even be able to score some extra bonus points for our ingenuity or cleverness at this time.

Intellectual Mercury, when it’s in its home sign of analytical, logical Virgo, is already on a fast track to Ph.D. status, in many instances, and aligned with genius-ruling Uranus -even though Uranus is deposited in slow-moving, deliberate Taurus – ups the ante that the E=mc2 sky is a limit that is definitely within our reach!

Another cool thing about the Mercury trine Uranus aspect is that it tends to naturally channel our quirkier or off-the-wall side, which can also help to jazz up our day. included here, conversations could easily wade into a wackier or more irreverent territory if permitted to do so. At the least, it can allow us to look at things from all sorts of weird or unusual angles that we may not normally consider.

Since this trine is also occurring in practical earth signs, it may be that we find ourselves coming up with, considering, or adopting fresh new approaches/strategies pertaining to security-related issues or financial matters now – including maybe having some “come to Jesus” moments about our money situation. It may also be a fruitful time to brainstorm new ways to make a buck.

The Waning Moon in Aries is also trining the Sun in Leo, at 10:48 am –

This very nice flowing aspect allows us to display a more united front personally, as our inner and outer energies are potentially now more in sync or on the same page. The natural Aries enthusiasm is generously supported by Leo’s confidence.

“Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit.” – E.E. Cummings

Too, with the Waning Moon deposited in more restless Aries, we tend to do best now involving ourselves in ongoing projects that we can likely bring to a conclusion fairly quickly.

*All times EDT

Born On This Day: American singer Madonna (original name Madonna Louise Ciccone) in Bay City, Michigan. The Material Girl turns 64 today.

Astrology August 11, 2022: Sun Squares Uranus, Aquarius Full Moon

Tags

, , , , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

Colossal traffic on the cosmic superhighway today! 🙂

The Leo Sun squares Uranus in Taurus (8:53 am) – It’s possible that we might be thrown a few curveballs with this aspect now. This influence tends to test our ability/willingness to make or accept sudden changes in our lives, including such things as tolerating simple disruptions to our daily routines or schedules.

On another level, we may find ourselves wanting to change things up in such a way that is typically uncharacteristic for us – stemming perhaps from feelings of boredom or seemingly a pervasive need for more stimulation or excitement in our lives.

Generally, Uranian energy is more roguish and rebellious by nature and often operates with lightning speed. Too, because the Sun also symbolizes, among other things, authority figures, we may find ourselves more at odds now with directives/policies issued by higher-ups or those in charge.

On a collective level, this Sun-Uranus influence also sometimes correlates with a greater chance for open rebellion, strikes, walkouts, etc. as those being ruled/employed weigh in to voice or offer up their opposition/input to things.

Additionally, on another level, some astrologers often liken Uranus’s activated ray to a period when we are privy to consciousness downloads that can raise our vibration. This is largely because Uranus is also considered the higher octave to intellectual Mercury and governs intuition.

We also have the Full Moon in (Uranus-ruled) Aquarius tonight (9:36 pm), which occurs when the Leo Sun forms an exact opposition with Luna. Overall, with this configuration, we are seeking to integrate the urge for individual expression and group expression. This may coincide with a desire for such things as social activism or involvement in humanitarian concerns.

Full Moons also deliver results, culminations, and revelations. They are also a time when our New Moon intentions are brought into manifestation.

Luna also conjuncts cautious Saturn in Aquarius shortly after this Full Moon (exact tomorrow at 1:58 am). This conjunction also re-emphasizes the ongoing Saturn-Uranus square, which symbolizes, among other things, a changing of the guard, so to speak, pitting the old established way of doing things up against the new or cutting-edge.

On another level, the more concentrated Moon-Saturn aspect also favors such things as data collection, organizing database systems, and evaluating various technologies and information.

Too, sandwiched between the Sun-Uranus square and Full Moon today,  lovable Venus will shift into playful, warmhearted Leo (2:30 pm) for a three-week stay, while initiating Mars, in soothing Taurus, will sextile transcendental Neptune in Pisces (5:44 pm), with the latter aspect, perhaps, possibly making us feel a bit like we are being taken on a magic carpet ride of sorts, with Mars-Neptune often introducing the chance for some “out of this world” or otherwise unusual type of experiences our way. We may also want to pay closer attention to any synchronicities occurring now as they might impart very special meaning to us.

Astrology August 9, 2022: Venus Opposes Pluto

Cosmic Weather:

On this second Tuesday of August, we may want to consider holding an impromptu seance to see if Sigmund Freud is possibly available for a quick consult regarding the latest perplexities of our ever-entangled love life..:)

Venus in Cancer opposes Pluto Rx in Capricorn (1:18 am) – While this more intense aspect may arouse our passions, it can also ignite power and control issues within relationships as well as conjure up our jealousies and suspicions. By nature, Venus in Cancer tends to feel or take things very personally; it can also be very clingy or smothering. Paired with forceful, obsessive Pluto, there’s a possibility now that all this neediness goes into overdrive! This tendency to hold on too tightly can also expand beyond people to include things or situations.

“If you love something, let it go. If it comes back to you, it is yours forever. If it doesn’t, then it was never meant to be.” – Unknown author

On the positive or redemptive side, this transit may tip us off to some hidden or submerged shadow stuff inside ourselves that we are able to, upon reflection, deftly transmute into shiny nuggets of gold.

On This Day in History: On August 9, 1974, Richard Nixon resigns as President of the United States – in wake of the Watergate scandal – and Vice President Gerald Ford swears the oath of office to take his place as the 38th US President.

Among the astrological aspects that day: activator Mars in censoring, corrective Virgo was separating one degree from an exact square to dissolving Neptune – the planet that also rules scandals and deception. (Squares bring about action.) The authoritative Leo Sun (which symbolizes leaders or rulers) was also exactly quincunx to Jupiter in surrendering Pisces, suggesting an adjustment in power.
