Astrology December 9, 2019: Mercury Enters Sagittarius

Tags

, , , , , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

We have some very promising, hopeful energy around to jumpstart our Monday!

One biggie: Winged Messenger Mercury flits into optimistic Sagittarius today (4:41 am), an enthusiastic fire sign, where it will stay until December 28th.

This upbeat placement for Mercury is excellent for expanding our perspectives, for helping us take a more global view of things, for igniting our curiosity.

We also tend to gravitate now towards conversations, or other forms of communication, in which we are able to freely express our beliefs or personal philosophy. We are also more interested in searching for the truth now, as we see or understand it.

Overall, Mercury in Sagittarius is excellent for teaching, learning new things, taking motivational courses or perhaps even doing some motivational speaking, if we’re so inclined. It might also be a fun time to start a blog or get involved with publishing or marketing, as Mercury in this sign is quite a promoter.

On the shadow side, Mercury in Sadge tends to minimize details in favor of the big picture or helicopter view (intellectual Mercury is in its detriment in Sagittarius, which is opposite Gemini, the sign that it rules). It is also sometimes associated with narrow-mindedness, even extremism, in the sense we can believe we have a monopoly on the truth.

“The truth does not change according to our ability to stomach it.” Flannery O’Connor.

Anyway… after having thinker Mercury in emotionally intense, darker-in-orientation Scorpio for the last two months, in which there was also a focus on understanding and healing from the past, Mercury’s ingress into brighter, futuristic Sadge should be a very nice, welcome change for us and a perfect tie in for the more hopeful spirit of the holidays.

We also have the waxing Moon in grounded Taurus, all day, the sign of its exaltation. When Luna is here we are wanting to create more of a feeling of abundance or sense of permanence in our life. Archetypally, the Taurus Moon symbolizes The Builder.

It is also a great time to engage in activities that indulge our senses, or that brings us into our bodies.

The Moon is also forming several positive aspects today to Neptune (imagination), Venus (love), Saturn (structure), and Pluto (rejuvenation). So the energy is really excellent now for our being able to act in a steadfast, agreeable manner to further our goals.

It is also a great sign for building new habits or daily practices, especially in its waxing phase. The Taurus Moon also favors taking care of business or material concerns.

Numerologically, the 9th day of the month is associated with wisdom and responsibility. It can also inspire humanitarian efforts.

Astrology December 8, 2019: Sun Squares Neptune

Tags

, , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

Beware! The “illuminating” Sun in archer Sagittarius is squaring “deceptive” Neptune in fishy Pisces today (3:59 am)! 🙂

As it is, most days are already crazy complicated enough to wade through. Don’t you agree? Why in the world we need to add psychedelic, hallucinatory Neptune to the cosmic setup now is beyond me. No doubt, it’s probably got something to do with inebriated gods up to no good at closing time!

Yet, on the other hand, we can probably all take pride and comfort in knowing that, today, it is likely a perfect time for attempting to walk across drought-stricken seas without fear of drowning. Or better yet, without fear of being swallowed up by an oversized minnow!

And on an even cheerier note, we do also have sweet, romantic Venus in “marrying for money” Capricorn sextile wishful-thinking Neptune (4:48 pm). So, at least there’s a shadow of hope that by the close of the day, some of us will probably end up being rescued by a wealthy prince or princess on a galactic-sized yacht so we can, hopefully, hang up our fishing poles for good! 🙂

Seriously, Venus sextile Neptune can, on occasion, match us up with our karmic soulmates. So that’s pretty cool. Or, at least pair us with acceptable substitutes. A comforting thought – especially since George Clooney is no longer an option, thanks to Amal!

“Romance is the glamour which turns the dust of everyday life into a golden haze.” Elinor Glyn.

Numerologically, today is also an “8” day often associated with money and power, and the ability to rein it in.

Born On This Day: American humorist James Thurber, in 1894, who once said: “One martini is all right. Two are too many, and three are not enough.”

Hope it’s a good one!

Astrology December 6, 2019: Aries Moon Trines The Sagittarius Sun

Tags

, , , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

Good news! We’re closing out the workweek (or play week) with the “wind at our back” via the enterprising, self-confident Moon in Aries’ waxing trine to the visionary Sun in Sagittarius (8:04 pm). This is very motivating and inspiring energy that can compel us to take whatever action is necessary to turn a dream into reality.

Ideally, the Moon trining the Sun generates a feeling of ease or natural harmony between our body and spirit.

“A good way to think of your physical body is that it is the result of your energy, your emotions, your mind and your soul.” Catherine Carrigan

Numerologically, it’s also “6” day, which is associated with a desire for peace, love, and harmony, and wanting to be of service to others. Too, the shadow side to this number can make us act a bit like a “mother hen,” in the sense that we can become too meddling or intrusive in other people’s lives. So we may have to dial it back some, especially if people start giving us strange looks. 🙂

Astrology December 5, 2019: Moon Enters Aries, Squares Jupiter

Tags

, , , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

We have a big costume change midway through the day, today! 🙂

First Half: We start out our Thursday with the waxing Moon still in sensitive, go with the flow Pisces. So granting ourselves perhaps a few moments of blissful solitude can be a perfect way for us to get gently centered in the rhythm of the day. The Pisces Moon is also void-of-course for over 7 hours today (from 3:15 am until 2:44 pm, when it ingresses into Aries), meaning it’s probably best to put off starting new projects until this void period is over.

Second Half: Once Luna rockets into fiery Aries, this afternoon, we’re once again cleared for taking direct action and generating exciting new beginnings.

With the reflective Moon also governing our emotional responses, in Aries the ram we tend to react quickly and impatiently to things, which can result in our potentially being more confrontational. Too, engaging in physical activity, such as working out at the gym, is often a great way to diffuse any tension we may be feeling now.

Shortly after the Moon enters Aries it also forms a waxing square to expansive Jupiter, still newly installed in ambitious, authoritarian Capricorn (4:09 pm). Luna squaring Jupiter tends to inflate our self-confidence or sense of self-importance. Nothing wrong with this unless we perhaps end up taking on, or committing to, more than we can handle. We are also possibly more apt to having philosophical differences with others now. On the plus side, this aspect can teach us how to become more tolerant, but only if we’re willing to entertain different points of view. Sometimes, too, when Jupiter is afflicted by aspect, it takes on a very zealous quality which, on the shadow side, can make us more narrow-minded, arrogant, or self-righteous in our beliefs.

“Once you create a self-justifying storyline, your emotional entrapment within it quadruples.” Pema Chodron

Numerologically, it’s a “five” day which can also be very energetic and mentally restless. The challenge is to find a way to contain the energy in a productive way. There’s also somewhat of a rebel or non-conforming vibe to the number 5.

Astrology December 4, 2019: First Quarter Moon in Pisces

Tags

, , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

A First Quarter Moon occurs in reflective Pisces today (1:59 am). This phase of the Moon (when Luna squares the Sun) normally requires us to take some sort of action in order to solidify or strengthen our New Moon vision or intentions. However, with the Moon also conjunct ethereal Neptune this morning (10:18 am), the modern-day ruler of Pisces, there could be a bit of inner uncertainty or confusion on how best to proceed. This also brings to mind what Benjamin Franklin once said: When in doubt, don’t!

Meanwhile, we could also come to a new awareness today that what we’ve been believing or assuming is the truth (Sun in Sagittarius) may be much more nuanced (Moon in Pisces) than we originally thought.

Numerologically, today is also a “four” day, suggesting a keen desire to lay down a foundation (such as the First Quarter Moon also implies). Guess we just need to be careful that we’re not building “castles in the air!” 🙂

Astrology December 3, 2019: Venus Sextiles Mars, Mercury Sextiles Pluto

Tags

, , , , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

It seems we’ve been officially cleared by the “powers-that-be” to formally spread some love around! 🙂

Venus and Mars, the Cosmic Lovers, are sextile to each other today. A more pleasant and pleasurable astrological aspect that bodes well not only for romantic encounters but also sets up a nice give and take in our relationships in general. We’re potentially more willing and wanting now to express our love (Venus) through the actions (Mars) that we take. This is also a very creative influence that can especially inspire us to want to create more beauty not only around us but also out in the world.

Communicator Mercury is also sextile Pluto today, the ruler of the subconscious. This energy can take conversations to a deeper level. We may also hear, see, or read something today that really resonates with our inner truth and also generates a lot of clarity for us. Due to Mercury’s retrograde dance in Scorpio, we’ve also already had this same aspect twice before (on Oct. 19 and Nov. 9) so today’s the last meetup of this cosmic duo, which could also bring final resolution to a matter.

The waxing Moon also shifted out of inventive Aquarius and into compassionate Pisces, early this morning (2:11 am). This is a really nice emotionally sensitizing aspect that can also inspire us to want to just go with the flow, to not make any waves, to simply honor that peaceful place of stillness inside ourselves. “Be still. Stillness reveals the secrets of eternity.” Lao-Tzu

The more charitably-minded Pisces Moon is also a perfect backdrop for “Giving Tuesday” today, an annual day that encourages people around the world to do good.

Numerologically, today is also a “3” day which is considered excellent for creative ventures. This also has a nice vibe to it for fun or lighter relationships.

*All times EST.

Astrology December 2, 2019: Jupiter Enters Capricorn

Tags

, , , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

It’s moving day, today! 🙂

Jupiter, symbolizing the urge for growth or expansion, optimism, and our higher beliefs, exits enthusiastic, visionary Sagittarius (the sign that it rules) and moves into more serious, Saturn-ruled Capricorn (1:20 pm), the sign of the “traditional” or “tried-and-true,” where it will reside until December of next year.

Ideally, Jupiter in earthy, mature Capricorn (the sign of career, reputation, and status) will help us to grow in 2020 by showing us myriad ways to better manage, conserve, or recycle our resources. The keywords for Capricorn are “I Use” – and there’s a distinctly utilitarian flair or approach to this sign.

Jupiter in Saturn’s “restricted” space may also make us more aware of the “power of focus” as a way of realizing our dreams. Again, this plays into the whole idea or philosophy of setting a reasonable limit or boundary (Saturn) on what we hope to accomplish or achieve (Jupiter) so we don’t get too overwhelmed or ahead of ourselves.

Too, often when we make the actual overtures of turning a dream or two into reality we soon realize that it’s usually much harder than we first thought it would be. Which is also another good reason to take small baby steps, in the beginning.

On another level, Jupiter’s passage through Capricorn may also be positive for “organizing-type” businesses and for businesses, studies, or research related to aging. Also, Jupiter here may possibly be more advantageous for conservation efforts regarding the environment. (On a collective level, Jupiter’s ingress into Capricorn today is also coinciding with the start of a two-week United Nations Conference on climate change in Madrid, Spain.)

Jupiter in Capricorn may also bring some advancements or improvements in the agriculture industry, which falls under Capricorn’s domain. (Saturn, the planet, was named after the Roman God of Agriculture.)

Numerologically, it’s a “2” day, representing union, and the Divine Feminine. “Two” days are normally positive for seeking out cooperation or integrating opposing energies.

Astrology November 29, 2019: Mercury Sextiles Saturn

Tags

, , , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

Today’s excellent for doing what needs to get done as the Moon is in focused, structured Capricorn, all day, the zodiacal sign associated with work, business, and responsibilities. This lunar position can also make us more aware of the importance of conserving our resources, including how we spend both our time and money.

Intellectual Mercury in perceptive Scorpio is also forming a waning sextile to Saturn, the ruler of the Capricorn Moon, an aspect which will be exact, early tomorrow morning (1:13 am). Due to Mercury’s retrograde phase, this is actually the third – and final time – that we’re having this aspect.

Mercury sextile Saturn is a great grounding influence for seeing the true nature of things, for any long-term planning, for serious discussions, for working with details, and for concentration. 

Numerologically, the 29th day of the month is generally positive for teamwork. There may also be more of an interest in philanthropic activities.

Astrology November 28, 2019: Mercury Trines Neptune, Venus Trines Uranus

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

Two, very nice, harmonizing trine aspects are occurring today as those of us, in the US, get ready to celebrate Thanksgiving Day:

Mercury in Scorpio trines Neptune in Pisces (4:50 am) – This lovely, more inspirational-type aspect potentially helps us to become more empathic or heart-centered in our conversations or communications. It’s excellent energy for generating overall psychic awareness or for tapping into our intuition. Ideally, we’re feeling more connected with our own inner sense of divinity. Possibly more willing to seeing unifying threads among us all. It’s also an excellent aspect for doing any kind of creative work, or for listening to music, or for maybe relaxing by the sea.

Venus in Capricorn trining Uranus RX in Taurus (1:27 pm): This exciting aspect can motivate us to want to partake in some stimulating or out-of-the-norm social or romantic activities. It can also bring people into our orbit who we might not normally interact with but now find very engaging or even liberating to be around. This galvanizing energy may also present us with sudden opportunities or outlets for financial or professional growth, including the chance to take fresh new approaches to these areas.

The waxing Moon also enters traditionally-minded Capricorn, this morning (7:32 am), where it will remain for the next couple days. This lunar placement helps us to appreciate or draw upon our past experiences, in a positive way.

Numerologically, with it being the 28th day of the month, there’s also greater potential for being able to express leadership qualities, as well as for taking initiative.

Astrology November 25, 2019: Venus in Capricorn, Balsamic Moon in Scorpio

Tags

, , , , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

The big cosmic headline for today is Venus’s shift from “footloose and fancy-free” Sagittarius to “I take great pride in balancing my checkbook” Capricorn, which officially occurs, this evening (7:28 pm).

Venus, named after the Roman goddess of love and beauty, symbolically governs our relationships, our social life, and our values. Venus sheds light on what we enjoy or look forward to. Also, Venus’s placement by sign is thought to reflect or shape our attitudes towards money and possessions.

Too, it used to be that Venus was the brightest planet in the night sky. But all that likely changes, as of tonight, as probably the first thing she’ll do when she flits into frugal Capricorn will be to turn on the dimmer switch! 🙂

Generally, Venus in Saturn-ruled Cappie is all about conserving or using our resources wisely. Abiding by the traditional or the time-tested.

Because Capricorn also rules career, status, and reputation, there’s also potentially a greater appreciation or affinity now for those persons who can help us to ascend the corporate ladder.

Venus will remain in Capricorn until December 20th.

The Moon is also in its Balsamic phase in eliminating Scorpio, all day, in preparation for tomorrow’s New Moon in Sagittarius. So today is excellent for releasing or letting go. It’s also a great time for reflecting upon the past and for setting our New Moon intentions.

“The past is never where you think you left it.” Katherine Anne Porter

Numerologically, today is also a “7” day (the 25th reduces down to 2+5, which equals 7). The number seven is thought to have a more intuitive or mystical orientation to it. Too, the Holy Spirit is supposedly quoted 25 times in the Gospels.

*All times EST

Hope it’s a good one!
