Today’s Astrology September 13, 2019: Mercury-Venus, Sun-Pluto

Tags

, , , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

Today, it appears, we may be able to smooth out some wrinkles on the relationship front, and play nice with each other, for at least a while, as communicator Mercury forms a soothing conjunction to charmer Venus in conscientious Virgo (11:10 am). Mercury-Venus aspects tend to inspire us to seek out more points of agreement, or to find ways to be diplomatic. It’s also usually an excellent time to articulate our feelings, something that’s not often easy for many of us to do. This aspect can also inspire us to want to be surrounded by beauty, in all its many splendid shapes, forms, or guises. It’s fascinating, too, how when we put ourself in a more agreeable or pleasant environment how our mood will often almost immediately change for the better. Kind of like how stepping outside on a sunny day gives us a lift.

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a
listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all
of which have the potential to turn a life around.” Leo Buscaglia

The empowering Sun in self-improvement Virgo is also trining transformational Pluto Rx, in ambitious Capricorn (3:42 pm). This is potentially a very super cool influence for being able to help take us “to the next level,” in our ongoing, often mystifying evolutionary journey on the dense earth plane. Too, the Sun-Pluto energy is often sometimes a bit like a “treasure hunt,” in the sense that we may be able to finally locate/spot/identify now something that has previously managed to elude us. It’s like, suddenly, we’re ready to know more about the matter and, we also sense, that this new knowledge or awareness, may have important ramifications for us, down the road. Also, this is an aspect that can help us to “step into our power.”

Favored activities for today: catching up on correspondence; writing love letters, poetry; studying geology; doing excavation work; detox efforts; incorporating healthier foods or exercise into our diet; making improvements in the workplace; talking to recruiters, updating our resumes, or doing job searches; engaging in negotiations; creating succession plans; handling insurance or tax matters.

*All times EDT

Hope it’s a good one!

Today’s Astrology for September 12, 2019: Mars Squares Jupiter

Tags

, , , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

Today there’s a tendency to enthusiastically/optimistically take on more (Jup in Sag) than we can effectively handle, manage, or digest (Mars in Vir) so we need to be careful. Too, depending upon our level of zeal or passion for something, we may also be more inclined to make bold, sweeping changes, moves, or statements now, likely in a bid to assertively advance our cause(s). Our personal beliefs and/or personal philosophy of life might also be areas that we feel we must protect, defend, or explain now. That said, we can still probably get a lot accomplished today especially if we’re strategic, have a plan at hand, and remain mindful about what we’re committing to.

Meanwhile, the Moon also shifts into dreamy, transcendent Pisces, this morning, (5:51 am), in preparation for the upcoming Full Moon in Pisces on Saturday.

Today’s Astrology for September 10, 2019: Virgo Sun Opposes Disappearing Neptune

Tags

, , , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

The illuminating, ego-conscious Sun in fastidious, bow-tied Virgo is forming its annual opposition to the grandest of all planetary disappearing acts: the visionary, trident-bearing Neptune, otherwise known as ‘the Great Dissolver,’ in selfless, oceanic Pisces (3:23 am), where the million-dollar views are, at best, blurred or obscured, and leaving virtually everything up to the imagination.

Suffice it to say, today may not be the best time to launch a full-scale fishing expedition for the facts or truth, unless we have plenty of time, perhaps, to play hide and seek. No, today we may be better off focusing our efforts on reeling in a whale of fantasy instead of channeling our inner Joe Friday. On the plus side, Sun-Neptune can be a very creative or inspired period.

On another level, the idealizing Sun-Neptune energy can also enjoin us with situations, people, or circumstances in which our caring or compassion is invoked; a time when our sense of oneness or communion, with what surrounds us, begins to seep through and delicately show itself.

“They both listened silently to the water, which to them was not just water, but the voice of life, the voice of Being, the voice of perpetual Becoming.” Herman Hesse, Sidhartha

Additionally today, the Moon is in progressive Aquarius so there can also be a yen for whatever is novel or new.

Favored activities today: Hiding our ego under a bushel basket; going fishing for our soul; paying it forward or performing acts of kindness; resting, relaxing, meditating; dancing; following our dreams; paying attention to synchronicities; deciphering the hidden meaning of cloud formatiions.

*All times EDT

On This Day in History: On September 10, 1953, Swanson’s sell its first “TV dinner.” Astrologically, in the sky, that day, newsmaker Mercury in digesting Virgo was forming a waxing sextile to technology wiz kid Uranus in foodie Cancer. (Uranus also rules TV!)

Hope it’s a good one!

Today’s Astrology for September 7, 2019: Mercury Opposes Fishy Neptune

Tags

, , , , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

Precise, logical Mercury in Virgo meets up with foggy, dissolving Neptune in Pisces today (3:18 am), the ruler of the fishy sea, and the planet of our imagination and phantom representations (or misrepresentations, including deception), so our thinking, reasoning, communications, and overall mental alertness may be a bit askew now. Or, significantly askew! – depending upon our own individual make-up, inclinations, or factory-type settings, and how we may choose to ride out this tricky, elusive, illusionary energy. (Mercury-Neptune is often associated with half-truths, missing or erroneous information.)

Suffice it to say, today may not be the best time for attending to the highly-detailed type of work and exacting calculations that Mercury in Virgo so inherently relishes; however, it is likely a very inspiring time to unleash the power of our own creativity and see how many dots we can, perhaps, lusciously disconnect. 🙂

It’s highly doubtful, though, that our brain stem and the rest of us will actually “float away” and vanish into thin air, this Saturday, as waxing, prescient Luna has already seemed to have adeptly planned for this cosmic event and has, thereby, chosen to deftly extricate herself from “adventurous” Sagittarius, for the remainder of the weekend, and instead, has securely deposited her sleek, form-fitting derriere into “doubting naysayer” Capricorn (6:37 am) where skepticism is king.

Favored activities today: Reading or writing fiction/poetry; acting, dancing, singing, painting, photography; water therapy/water massage; dream interpretation; studying mysticism or religion; developing our intuition; engaging in outlets that sensitize us to the feelings or needs of others or that allows us to show our compassionate side.

*All times EDT

Born on This Day: Grandma Moses (Anna Mary Robertson Moses) in 1860 in Greenwich, New York. An American folk artist, she began painting in earnest at the age of 78 and is often cited as an example of an individual who successfully began a career in the arts at an advanced age. She died in 1961 at 101. (Wikipedia)

In her birthchart, Moses had Mercury and Saturn almost exactly conjunct (one degree) in detail-oriented Virgo, which is typically excellent for deep yet highly pragmatic thinking as well as keen concentration or focus. She also had her artistic Venus in dynamic Leo and in a two-degree trine to imaginative Neptune Rx in the last degree of Pisces, suggesting a real, natural flow of artistic energy. Her Moon (emotions) was also in endlessly curious and youthful Gemini and conjunct progressive, inventive Uranus.

“If I hadn’t started painting, I would have raised chickens. Grandma Moses

Today’s Astrology for September 5, 2019: Mercury Trines Saturn

Tags

, , , , , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

Today (especially the first half) is excellent for putting on our stylish thinking caps and doing some serious planning, especially engaging in long-term planning for our future. This is because Mercury, in precise Virgo (the planet that shows how we think, reason or make sense of things), is forming a flowing trine to structuring Saturn Rx in utilitarian Capricorn (Saturn is the planet that provides us with a reality check; it also represents our limits and capabilities).

In general, Mercury trining Saturn helps foster practical, more efficient ways of thinking, communicating, and relating. Also, due to the more cautious nature of Saturn, we are more likely now to want to stick with the tried-and-true, or what has, otherwise, already been tested and shown to be reliable.

Later in the day, meanwhile, the First Quarter Moon in “adventurous” Sagittarius  (11:10 pm), can find us more than a little willing, again, to experiment, or to throw caution to the wind, which is something that can potentially cause us a bit of inner angst or discord as the transiting Virgo planetary stellium now would much prefer that everything be neatly tied up and packaged with a nice bow on top. 🙂 On the other hand, the positive side to this lunar phase is that it’s showing us that we’re continually wanting to grow and become more of who we are, and that’s always a good thing!

“Without leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.” Gloria Steinem

Activities favored today: Studying more serious disciplines such as math, science, architecture, or engineering; having serious, practical discussions with established authority figures or persons in power; organizing one’s workspace or work duties; having or scheduling a hearing test or a bone-density test; retirement planning; budget planning.

*All times EDT

Born on This Day: American comedian and stand-up actor, Bob Newhart, known for his deadpan humor, turns 90 years old today.

(Newhart, a Virgo Sun, has Mercury exactly conjunct Mars in pleasing, diplomatic Libra. Mercury conjunct Mars generally produces a great deal of mental energy and mental alertness or quickness. Both of these planets in Newhart’s chart are also opposite spontaneous, irreverent Uranus, the planet of genius and inventiveness, in pioneering Aries.) 

“I don’t like country music, but I don’t mean to denigrate those who do. And for the people who like country music, denigrate means ‘put down’.” Bob Newhart 🙂

Hope it’s a good one!

Today’s Astrology September 3, 2019: Mercury Conjuncts Mars and Sun

Tags

Cosmic Weather:

In case Oprah calls us up today and inquisitively asks her trademark question, “What do you know for sure?”, it appears that we’re well-poised to be able to respond to her with greater specificity or clarity now as articulator Mercury in “exacting” Virgo is forming a conjunction to both motivating Mars and the ego-conscious Sun.  These planetary aspects potentially tend to increase our overall mental lucidity regarding our perceptions of life and the meaning or integrating of our individual life experiences.

“What I know for sure is that what you give comes back to you.” Oprah Winfrey

There can also be a more passionate desire now to want to communicate or act upon our thoughts, ideas, and musings in a very enterprising and determined way. There’s also likely an enhanced drive to get things done and to solve problems.

Additionally, the reflective Moon is in transformational Scorpio, and well-aspected, suggesting a natural proclivity for scaling deeper, particularly on a psychological level. On the shadow side, there’s possibly more potential for heated arguments, sarcastic remarks, and impulsive decision-making.

“Don’t raise your voice, improve your argument.” Desmond Tutu

Favored activities today: Intellectual debates, writing, journaling, editing, reading, learning new things, research, scuba diving, health checkups, antiquing, psychotherapy, tax work, lab work, investigations or detective work.

On This Day in History: On September 3, 1977,  the final CBS repeat of the last episode of “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” is aired on the network.

Astrologically, in the sky that evening (when the episode was shown), the grounding Moon in Taurus was exactly square to retiring Saturn in entertainment Leo (Moon-Saturn aspects often time endings or partings). Broadcaster Mercury was also in chronicling Virgo and exactly square to dissolving Neptune, the planetary ruler of film and TV, which was deposited in inspirational Sagittarius.

“My grandfather once said, having watched me one entire afternoon, prancing and leaping and cavorting, ‘This child will either end up on stage or in jail.’ Fortunately, I took the easy route.” Mary Tyler Moore

Hope it’s a good one!

Today’s Astrology September 1, 2019: Mercury Trines Uranus, Venus Trines Saturn

Cosmic Weather:

“A point of view can be a dangerous luxury when substituted for insight and understanding.” Marshall McLuhan

With intellectual Mercury, in logical Virgo, and in a flowing, waxing trine to innovative Uranus (our inner Einstein), in pragmatic Taurus (10:10 am), it’s possible today that we will get a chance to see the sudden sprouting of some very cool ideas or insights that can help to shift things around for us in a very useful way (Virgo). Overall, this is an excellent day for brainstorming, in general, including evaluating/rethinking anything related to technology (Uranus) or quality control. Optimally, our ability to absorb anything more of a technical nature is also enhanced.

This may also be a very good time to look at or deal with our personal financial or career fitness (Uranus in Taurus) with an eye on how to shore it up, or improve it, over the long haul, as balancing Venus in organizing Virgo (the planetary ruler of materially-minded Taurus), is also forming a waning, harmonizing trine to Saturn in professionally-minded Capricorn (2:48 pm), with Saturn symbolizing the solidifying structure or foundation in our lives (Saturn also governs old age and retirement). Too, taking care of “unfinished business” first (such as paying off old debts) may be one of the best ways to forge ahead now.

“We tend to focus on assets and forget about debts. Financial security requires facing up to the big picture: assets minus debts.” Suze Orman

Additionally, the Venus-Saturn energy can also make us more mindful of our duties and responsibilities to others. Occasionally, Venus-Saturn is also associated with the formation of “May-December” romances.

Favored Activities Today: Engaging in mentoring relationships; financial and/or retirement planning; joining clubs or organizations to enhance our professional standing or our standing in the community; redecorating to achieve more of a “minimalist effect.”

Born on September 1st: Comedian Lily Tomlin in Detroit, Michigan. Tomlin turns 80 years old today.

Today’s Astrology for August 30, 2019: A New Moon in Tweaking Virgo

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

“There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.”  Ernest Hemingway

With a potent New Moon taking place today in “tweaking” Virgo (6:37 am), the sign of health, work, and service, there’s likely a growing momentum occurring now to roll out the “new and improved” versions of things (including ourselves!), in the days ahead. In general, this is always an excellent lunation period for any kind of problem-solving, for practical negotiations, for DIY projects, for decluttering, detoxifying, editing, for implementing new health regimes, adding new habits, for perfecting our skills.

This New Moon also finds a total of five planets (a stellium) in corrective Virgo (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars), which suggests a strong ability to focus or concentrate on the extraneous details (or the infrastructure) of our daily lives to discern how everything is – or isn’t – working. Also, for those of us who seem to have more difficulty focusing on the small stuff, just the sheer act of getting more organized – a Virgo trait – is often a very good way to become more aware of all the pivotal minutiae circulating around.

Both Mars (assertion) and Venus (wants) are also conjunct the Sun and the Moon now, with Mercury (communication) not very far away, so there’s a great deal of single-minded motivation, determination, and energy to actively pursue our desires, or whatever it is that we want to attract (including love and romance). There may also be a heightened ability to work in a very precise, orderly, and methodical manner, and to communicate with others on more of a factual (or reality-based) level.

The Mars conjunction (to the Sun and Moon) can also indicate a potential for displaying real courage or bravery, depending upon the situation, as well as possibly a good amount of competitiveness and wanting to do things our own way. The Mars-Sun energy will also be exact, for the next few days, and in health and research-minded Virgo, there’s a possibility that some notable discoveries or advances will be made (perhaps in healing or medicine). Mars-Sun aspects, particularly the conjunction, have a marked trailblazing quality to them, which can be very invigorating to experience. Perhaps, too, if there’s been something you’ve wanted to try but have been hesitant to do so, for whatever reason, now might be a good time give it a whirl, or to at least take a first baby step, in that direction.

Altogether, too, there are eight planets in the grounding earth signs, which strongly suggests that there’s special finesse or talent now in dealing with the tangible affairs of the world (especially money, security, and career). It’s also an excellent period for strategically planning the use or allocation of our resources.

Sometimes, too, a concentration of planets in “shrinking” Virgo is associated with having more of a myopic vision as far as the bigger picture is concerned. However, today’s lunation also has all of the Virgo planets trining Uranus (the planet of innovation and technology), in pragmatic Taurus, suggesting that there’s a real receptivity or fascination now for whatever’s progressive, cutting-edge, or apart from the norm, thereby making it also potentially easier for us to embrace the idea of change or newness.

“Habits also make change possible by freeing us from decision-making and from using self-control.” Gretchen Rubin (author of “Better Than Before”)

Numerologically, today (8-30-2019) also reduces down to both a 3 (Jupiter) and a 5 (Mercury), so there’s some optimism, desire for sociability, and a feeling of expansion (the 3 side) as well as a good measure of nimbleness and curiosity at play (5).

*All times EDT

On This Day in History: Mary Shelley, the author of Frankenstein, was born on August 30, 1797, in London, England. (Frankenstein was an instant bestseller on publication in 1818 and has long been regarded as a masterpiece of suspense, a classic of nineteenth-century Romanticism and Gothic horror, and the prototype of the science fiction novel. From Wikipedia)

Astrologically, in the sky that day (and in Shelley’s birth-chart), there was a stellium in “tinkering” Virgo (like today), with adventurous, initiator Mars newly-deposited at 0 degrees of Virgo and in a near-exact opposition to darkhorse Pluto, Lord of the Underworld. (Mars-Pluto energy can also give a fascination with the macabre.) The life-giving Sun was also deposited in analytical Virgo and conjunct inventive, ingenious Uranus (possibly helpful for writing science fiction; Sci-Fi writer, Ray Bradbury, also had a Sun-Uranus opposition aspect in his chart).

“Beware; for I am fearless, and therefore powerful.” Mary Shelley, Frankenstein

Today’s Astrology August 16, 2019: Mercury Squares Brilliant Uranus

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

Just because something is “new” doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s better; however, birthing new ideas can often be something that can be pretty cool for us to experience because new ideas (just by their very nature of being “fresh off the mental press”) can tend to make us feel more alive inside, more rejuvenated, more hopeful. They can also even, sometimes, radically turn our lives around when we do decide to act upon them (depending, of course, on what they are).

Anyway, with “thinker” Mercury in creative Leo squaring “our inner Einstein” Uranus (the planet of genius and geekiness), in solidifying Taurus today (1:07 pm), there’s hopefully a better than average chance that the charitable muses will be paying each of us a cordial visit and doling out to us at least a few, original, powerhouse thoughts, ideas, or perceptions that we can then add or incorporate into our nifty toolkits to hopefully take us places that we’ve always wanted to go but were never quite sure how to get there. (Uranus is considered to denote the superconscious mind and is also thought to be the “higher octave” of Mercury, while Mercury represents “the conscious mind, conscious awareness.” Uranus is also associated with flashes of intuition or sudden knowing.)

Of course, just like with everything else in life, there’s also potentially a rogue element or shadow side to today’s Mercury-Uranus square. Some manifestations of this might include: displaying rebellious or cantankerous behavior (throwing temper tantrums), experiencing increased mental restlessness, engaging in impulsive decision making. Uranus also symbolizes dissent or protest, challenges to the status quo. It may be a time when we’re more inclined to speak up (Mercury) about issues that appear to affect our sense of personal freedom or liberty (Uranus).

On another level, on Mercury-Uranus days we often hear things (Mercury) that really take us by surprise because they’re so unexpected (Uranus). Too, with Uranus in material Taurus, it’s possible that there could be some surprises or twists on the financial front, or regarding things that sustain us or make us feel more secure (including our values).

Action planet Mars is also at 29 degrees of authoritative Leo (a critical degree), today and tomorrow (entering Virgo, early Sunday morning). When Mars is at the end of the sign, there’s often a strong motivating desire to give something a “final push” to bring it about, especially if we’re already (perceived to be) close to the finish line. With Mars in proud Leo we may also feel a potent desire to exercise our personal power now.

Meanwhile, the Moon is also now in meditative Pisces, suggesting we make some time, along the way, for inner reflection or prayer. Numerologically, too, today (8-16-2019) reduces down to both a (dreamy) 7 and (self-mastery) 9, sort of re-iterating this Piscean theme for turning inward as a way to renewal now.

“I think making mistakes and discovering them for yourself is of great value, but to have someone else to point out your mistakes is a shortcut of the process.” Shelby Foote

*All times EDT

On This Day in History: On August 16, 1977, Elvis Presley (“the King”) died at Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee.

Astrologically then (just two days earlier), there had been a New Moon in “kingly” Leo, (the sign of entertainment), with both the Sun and Moon in Leo in a tight conjunction to sobering Saturn, the Lord of Karma. (I remember reading a book about Elvis, several years ago, and in it there was mention that Elvis always kept a copy of Kahlil Gibran’s “The Prophet” by his bed. He was also, reportedly, interested in numerology.)

“Some people tap their feet, some people snap their fingers, and some people sway back and forth. I just sorta do ’em all together, I guess.” Elvis Presley

Today’s Astrology August 14, 2019: Sun Conjunct Venus, Quinqunx Pluto

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

A warm, amiable Sun-Venus conjunction in creative Leo (ideally) magnifies our wants and desires, our popularity, our artistic expression, our orientation towards cooperation, love, harmony, and celebration. This is a very lovely influence that can really make us want to beautify our life, our appearance, our surroundings. Natally, when people have Sun conjunct Venus in their charts, they’re usually very adept at being able to smooth things over, to make connections with others. Occurring in Leo, too, there can be quite a bit of flair for fashion, for drama or the theatrical, for attracting attention to ourselves in a potent, charming, or charismatic way.

On the flip side, however, this same Sun-Venus conjunction also forms an awkward quinqunx to investigative Pluto in “no-frills” (Saturn-ruled) Capricorn, which could potentially serve to temporarily arouse our suspicions or find us probing deeper into the shadows, looking for what may be broken, disturbed, or, seemingly, just “not quite right,” below the surface. This is not necessarily a bad thing – maybe more like performing a maintenance check or a diagnostic on our system after sensing something might be a bit off.

The waxing Moon is also in emotionally detached Aquarius today, which can help us to see things in a more intellectual light. This position for Luna can also incline us to be more experimental or non-conforming in our approach to matters. Sometimes, too, with Luna here we’re more willing to espouse or rally behind social or humanitarian causes.

Too, since we have a Full Moon in Aquarius tomorrow, we may really be getting a strong sense of things building up or culminating now. Full Moons tend to supply us with more illumination, or greater awareness. Occurring in Aquarius, too, perhaps we’re trying to figure out now our unique, special place in the world (Sun in Leo), where we can really shine but also, at the same time, give back something meaningful to the collective (Moon in Aquarius).

Numerologically, the day (8-14-2019) reduces down to a 5 (Mercury-ruled) and 7 (Neptune-ruled), so we do have a pronounced “changeability” or “back and forth” vibe going on, and a boost of mental stimulation. But, also a strong desire for dreams and inspiration.

“And I am all the things I have ever loved: scuppernong wine, cool baptisms in silent water, dream books and number playing.” Toni Morrison

On This Day in History: On August 14, 1965, Sonny and Cher’s “I Got You Babe” hits #1.
