Today’s Astrology May 18, 2019: Full Moon in Mysterious Scorpio

Cosmic Weather:

“Every single cell in the human body replaces itself over a period of seven years. That means there’s not even the smallest part of you now that was part of you seven years ago.” Steven Hall

It is a perplexing mystery how we often feel that we are basically the same person, day after day. Yet, in reality, for all practical purposes, we are in a continuous state of death and renewal while we are breathing, hanging out on the earth plane. At least, this is the case from the standpoint of our physical being. On the other hand, it is the persistent sense of our own seemingly unchanging, individual ‘inner essence’ which most likely provides us with the notion that we are more of an immutable force to be reckoned with! But even then, the idea of an enduring ‘inner essence’ is also a bit weird and baffling, when you think about it, because how does this ‘inner essence’ manage to keep itself glued together, in one piece, to begin with, when everything around it keeps wanting to turn into mush and or wither away? Maybe even more importantly, how does it manage to keep its hair perfectly coiffed, in all instances? That is the real 64-thousand dollar question! 🙂

Anyway… Today’s Full Moon in ‘life and death’ Scorpio, at 27 degrees of the sign, seemingly invites us to humbly bask in the full awareness of the infinite, deeper mysteries of life that perennially surround us, engulf us, maybe even haunt us, at times. So many things can potentially ‘spook us out’ on a daily basis, if we let them, especially in this age of 24/7 news coverage. Although, with the Full Moon in investigative Scorpio it could be that we possess the proper amount of emotional fortitude, unflappable courage, and perceptual curiosity now to want to willingly visit those dicey places/areas/dramas that tend to otherwise make us want to naturally recoil out of fear or trepidation. It is like we know now that we must move through, or go beyond, all the scary stuff to get to the ‘other side.’ The seemingly ‘safe side’ where all the monsters are benevolently slewed, our spouses are fairly subdued and obedient – for the most part – and all is right (healed) with the world! At least, for a little while. Till the next domino falls…

Scorpio is also the sign in which we take the trash or garbage out, both literally and symbolically. In the body, it is associated with the rectum and bladder, the two workhorses of elimination. What goes in (Sun in Taurus), must come out (Moon in Scorpio), at the risk of sounding crude. Interesting, too, isn’t it, how there is often so much shame, embarrassment, including yes, even mystery, associated with this particular, and much-needed body function. So hopefully Luna now, deposited in her full-figure form in seductive Scorpio, the premier snakeskin shedding energy, will inspire those of us, who are so inclined, to pitch/purge/recycle whatever is redundant/outworn in our lives, in order to make room for the new/nurturing/tantalizing ingredients that will, ideally, keep us standing upright and moving vigorously forward, a while longer.

As luck would have it, too, the passionate, intense Scorpio Moon is also occurring on the same day that lovable Venus is conjunct wild and wacky Uranus in hedonistic Taurus, an astrologically rebellious/liberating influence that poises us/tempts us to want to temporarily break with convention/tradition/our mates in order to pursue out of the ordinary worldly pleasures/values. To decadently indulge in new sensations/social/romantic experiences that likely move us outside of our rigid/stuffy comfort zones and straight into the dog house!

Thinker and orator Mercury is also exactly trining insightful, dark horse Pluto today, Scorpio’s modern-day ruler. So we are also possibly able to seduce/influence/persuade others now with our power thoughts, ideas, and spoken/written words in a non-threatening, yet formidable manner. This is also an excellent intellectual aspect for solving puzzles, riddles.

“I always dream of a pen that would be a syringe.” Jacques Derrida

On This Day in History: On May 18, 1897 “Dracula” by Irish author Bram Stoker is published by Archibald Constable and Company in London.

The astrology that day: The illuminating Sun in sensual, neck-ruling Taurus was exactly opposite maverick Uranus and authoritative Saturn. Both of these planets were also exactly conjunct in ‘mistress/master of the night’ Scorpio!

Today’s Astrology May 17, 2019: Mercury Quinqunx Jupiter

, , , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

“He who thinks little errs much…” Leonardo da Vinci

Thinker Mercury in practical Taurus is forming an awkward aspect (quinqunx) to philosophical Jupiter (retrograde) in enthusiastic Sagittarius today (5:48 pm EDT) so there may be a tendency to gloss over pivotal details in a bid to view things from a larger, big-picture lens. While this aspect can help put us in touch with our revered hopes or dreams for the future, we are also potentially more likely to discount or override good old-fashioned common-sense now. Since Jupiter is also retrograde, it could be that we are revisiting a tantalizing situation from the past now. Still trying to ‘bring it down from the clouds.’ However, it’s probably not going to be happening, just yet, again, as, more than likely, more flesh still needs to be applied to the demanding Saturnian bones for this delicate thing to fly on its own. A good question, maybe, to ask ourselves today, is, “What am I not seeing here that could be a game changer?”

Famous May 17 Birthdays: Dennis Hopper, Sugar Ray Leonard

On This Day in History: On May 17, 1900, “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” is first published by L. Frank Baum with illustrations by William Wallace Denslow in Chicago. The astrology that day: Jupiter, Uranus, and the North Node were conjunct in story-telling Sagittarius and initiating Mars had just entered 0 degrees of manifesting Taurus. Communicator Mercury was also in Taurus and separating from a sextile to artistic Venus in “there’s no place like home” Cancer.

Hope you enjoy your Friday!

Cosmic Weather:

“The most confused you will ever get is when you try to convince your heart and spirit of something your mind knows is a lie.” Shannon L. Alder

There are more questions than answers today. And, even the answers we’re getting from ourselves, others, and the world at large may be highly suspect or confusing! With animator Mars in Gemini squaring evader Neptune in Pisces (9:04 am), it could be that the more we try to ‘push the envelope’ now (Mars), the greater the chance that that delicate paper receptacle will just flat out vanish into thin air (Neptune)! On the shadow side, Mars-Neptune energy is associated with passive-aggressive/deceptive/scattered actions. Accordingly, it may be best to postpone acting on any major issues today until the view/the facts/our perspective become clearer. Too, behaving aboveboard with integrity can be an empowering way to circumvent some of the bumps in the road before us now.

On another level, Mars square Neptune can be excellent for involvement in any creative activities, especially art, music, and photography. This energy can also invoke our more compassionate or charitable side and can be a time when we are much more capable of self-sacrifice.

“The most sublime act is to set another before you.” William Blake

Today’s Astrology April 25, 2019: Moon Conjuncts Saturn and Pluto

Cosmic Weather:

“It’s not always that we need to do more but rather that we need to focus on less.” Nathan W. Morris

With the Waning Moon in productive Capricorn, this is an excellent day to finish up projects centered around our real-world ambitions. The Moon’s conjunction, mid-morning (10:33 am), with conservationist Saturn, also, ideally, adds to our ability to focus on exactly what’s in front of us, while at the same time allowing us to rally or gather our unique reservoir of wisdom, experience, and know-how and configure all these elements together to our advantage in a positive way. Kind of like a Master Chef at work in a kitchen carefully concocting a sublime dish by knowing exactly what to put in it, how to cook it, serve it, etc. Later, the Moon’s conjunction with intense, excavating Pluto (3:48 pm) poises us to want to feel things on a deeper level, emotionally. This aspect can also connect us with elements of our more distant past.

“Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.” Soren Kierkegaard

Famous April 25 Birthdays: Oliver Cromwell, Guglielmo Marconi, Ella Fitzgerald, Al Pacino

“He who stops being better stops being good.” Oliver Cromwell

On This Day in History: On April 25, 1953, Francis Crick’s and James Watson’s discovery of the double helix structure of DNA is published in “Nature” magazine.

Astrologically, on that day, pioneering Mars was exactly conjunct expansive Jupiter in matter-ruling Taurus at 26 degrees. (Jupiter also governs publishing.)

Whenever Mars and Jupiter pair up there is characteristically an abundance of enthusiasm, hope, and optimism in the air. Accordingly, we are not only much more excited about our future prospects then, but we can also make notable strides or advances towards it.

Hope you enjoy your Thursday!

Today’s Astrology April 24, 2019: Pluto Stations Retrograde

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

“Some people believe holding on and hanging in there are signs of great strength. However, there are times when it takes much more strength to know when to let go and then do it.” Ann Landers

We live in a culture in which ‘having more’ is often automatically deemed better than ‘having less.’ So virtually anytime there’s a perceived chance that what we have or possess is thought to be at possible risk of loss our immediate response is normally to do whatever it takes to keep what we have firmly in our clutches. No matter that what we might be clinging to may be long expired!

That’s why, perhaps, in a left-handed way, we should maybe all be kind of ‘jumping for joy’ today because Pluto, the planet of exit doors and elimination, is stationing retrograde at 23 degrees of utilitarian Capricorn (2:45 pm). Whenever a planet stations, its energy is thought to be more potent that day. Meaning, we could possibly be getting clearer signs now of what should be pitched or trashed in our lives, for our own good.

Okay, in some cases, we may be able to get clearance to perform salvage operations or just do some creative refurbishing/reworking of existing elements and call it a day. In other words, not have to go through the heartbreak of experiencing a total wipeout or implosion! 🙂 Pluto is, after all, also a great ‘turnaround genius’ or ‘re-birthing agent.’

Too, on another level, it may be worthwhile or interesting now to simply study or observe the vast trail of waste that we are characteristically generating/leaving behind. What might that cryptic wagon train say or reveal about us? About how we are maybe managing/mismanaging our daily operations/resources? Where we may also possibly be overextended, as Pluto governs debt and indebtedness.

Transformational Pluto will be retrograde in Capricorn until October 3, when it will be turning direct at 20 degrees of the sign. Since Capricorn is also the sign that specifically governs career, government, and big business, there’s a chance now, and for the next few months, that we’ll be experiencing a type of ‘crisis of consciousness’ in those areas in particular. Perhaps becoming more aware of the ‘bugs in the systems’ that we’ve built – and what to do about them.

“In the oddity or maybe the miracle of life, the roots of something new frequently lie in the decaying husks of something old.” Craig D. Lounsbrough

Famous April 24 Birthdays: Vincent De Paul, Shirley MacLaine, Jill Ireland, Barbra Streisand, Kelly Clarkson

“I arrived in Hollywood without having my nose fixed, my teeth capped, or my name changed. That is very gratifying to me.” Barbra Streisand

On This Day in History: On April 24, 1888, Eastman Kodak was founded by George Eastman. Astrologically, at the time, the planet Neptune, which rules photography, was nearing 29 degrees of artistic, yet financially-minded Taurus, a critical degree. Often when a planet is at 29 degrees, there’s an extra push or urgency to get things done. There’s also a summation, of sorts, of what has gone before while the planet has been in the sign.

Neptune was also forming a waxing, one-degree sextile to consolidating, organizing Saturn, newly-installed at 0 degrees of Leo, the sign of entertainment and the motion picture industry.

Lest we forget, we also currently have an ongoing sextile now, this year, between Saturn in Capricorn and Neptune in Pisces. This influence is also thought to be very good for creativity and realizing our dreams, with structuring Saturn providing a floor or foundation for Neptune’s bountiful imagination and visions.

Hope you enjoy your Wednesday!

Cosmic Weather:

“Most people come to know only one corner of their room, one spot near the window, one narrow strip on which they keep walking back and forth.” Rainer Maria Rilke

We start out our Monday with the empowering Sun making its annual conjunction with Uranus, the awakener, in security-minded Taurus (7:05 pm). This electrifying influence helps to make us more aware of where we have, perhaps, settled in too much, in our lives, where we have possibly become too rooted, and where we may need almost a jolt, of some kind, to bring us back to a seemingly more creative and interactive way of being and operating in the world.

This aspect can especially reveal to us where we may have forfeited some of our personal freedom, our authenticity, and individual self-expression in a bid to simply survive or make a go of things. Now, we may be feeling that we need to get back on track and cut loose some of those ‘ties that bind’ in order to free our soul.

Uranus also tends to make us more enthralled with whatever is cutting-edge, modernistic, and non-conforming.

Cosmic Weather:

“The time we lose is not in overdoing what we are about, but in doing nothing.” William Hazlitt

With fun-loving Venus in boundaryless Pisces forming a square to over-sizing Jupiter in enthusiastic Sagittarius today, it’s easy to get swept away in the current of whatever it is that we’re pursuing for pleasure or enjoyment now (relationships/love/money/dreams/beliefs). Not that that’s necessarily a bad thing, by any means…

Of course, on the other hand, as many of us know, too much of a good thing can quickly morph into something that is ‘not-so-good’ for us, depending on what we’re doing or what’s at stake. In other words, it’s always wise to put things into their proper context.

Anyway, discerning when and where to draw that merry little line or distinction with respect to the parameters of our behavior, is, seemingly, part of our captivating cosmic assignment for this Monday, April 15th. Tax Day in the U.S.

“Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work your judgment will be surer. Go some distance away because then the work appears smaller and more of it can be taken in at a glance and a lack of harmony and proportion is more readily seen.” Leonardo da Vinci

On This Day in History: On April 15, 1912, the Titanic sank off the Newfoundland coast as the band played on. More than 1,500 people lost their lives in the world’s most tragic and infamous maritime tragedy.

Astrologically, in the sky that day, Neptune, the ruler of the sea, was in the water sign of Cancer and exactly square to the Lunar Nodes (NN in Aries, SN in Libra).

“In April, God speaks to us in the seas whose rhythmic murmuring fills our ears from a long way off. It was in April that the Titanic went down into the deep to lie like a slasher’s victim, bleeding the ‘debris field’ – its’ passengers personal possessions, the everyday things of every man and every woman – across the ocean’s floor.” Eugene Kennedy

Cosmic Weather:

“We live in a culture of secrecy, where hiding and lying are accepted as natural, even though we don’t like it. We want honesty, transparency, and authenticity in our loved ones, our groups and organizations, and in our own self so we can reach the heights of our capacity. By clinging to the opaque reality we stall our evolution.” Penney Peirce

We are poised for positive, transformative new beginnings today but the portal to get there requires that we first must do some serious digging/heavy lifting through the valley of our fears, worries, insecurities to see how they have been covertly or secretly impacting/blocking/shaping our utilization of power in the world (Sun square Pluto). Pluto is associated with purging or eliminating whatever is decaying or putrefying inside of us so that we can lighten our load, and move on.

Additionally, on the shadow side, with the Sun in conquest-oriented Aries, there can be a tendency now for power struggles to ensue, or more of a willingness to engage in manipulative behaviors, in a bid to hold onto what is feared may be passing away (Pluto).

Cosmic Weather:

“It is not the failure that holds us back but the reluctance to begin over again that causes us to stagnate.” Clarissa Pinkola Estes

We have a New Moon in ‘initiating’ Aries today (4:50 am). It’s also the first New Moon of the astrological new year, which occurred when the Sun entered the sign of Aries at the Spring (Northern) equinox.

The New Moon in Aries is always a time for us to embark on personal new beginnings. The keywords for Aries are: I am. So we’re recognizing or affirming our very existence now by putting things into motion. By taking action. By creating. We’ll also want to pay attention to the house in our natal chart in which this New Moon is occurring as that is the area of our life in which these new activities will be getting underway.

This is also an excellent time for us to incorporate some of the qualities of Aries, such as independence, adventurousness, and fearlessness. Also, for learning how to take the initiative in matters as well as for developing a strong belief in ourselves.

Aspect-wise, today’s New Moon is square to Saturn, Pluto, and the South Node in Capricorn. Suggesting that it’s very important now to be very focused and grounded (Saturn) in our actions; assertive, but not pushy (Pluto); and responsive, instead of reactive (South Node).

“When it’s obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.” Confucius

*All times EDT

On This Day in History: On April 5, 1923 Firestone Tire and Rubber Company starts producing inflatable tires.

Astrologically, that day, there was a grand fire trine involving the Sun, Mercury, and Chiron in pioneering Aries; visionary Neptune in leadership Leo; and the Moon in futuristic Sagittarius. Jupiter was also retrograde in resourceful, transformative Scorpio and trining Uranus, the planet of invention and technology, in imaginative Pisces.

Famous April 5 Birthdays: Booker T. Washington, Spencer Tracy, Bette Davis, Gregory Peck, Colin Powell, Pharrel Williams

“Success is not to be measured so much by the status one has attained in life but rather by the obstacles one has overcome while trying to succeed.” Booker T. Washington.

Booker T. Washington, an American educator who was born into slavery (b. 4/5/1856), was also born right after a New Moon in Aries, just like we have today. He had his Sun and Moon conjunct in pioneering Aries, along with four planets conjunct in compassionate Pisces – Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, and Neptune. (Today we also have Mercury, Venus, and Neptune conjunct in Pisces!)  His Pisces planets were also all square to teacher, obstacle-ruler Saturn in thinker, information imparter Gemini.

Today’s Astrology April 4, 2019: Pluto Conjunct South Node in Capricorn

Tags

, , , , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

Transformational Pluto conjunct the South Node in ambitious Capricorn today is potentially a chance for us to gain deeper insight (Pluto) into how we have perhaps been (South Node) wielding or managing our power, control, or authority in the world (Pluto) in order to attain outward success (Capricorn).

The South Node represents our habits or ingrained behaviors, while Pluto symbolizes, among other things, penetrating awareness, the urge for power itself, and also governs the principle of death and rebirth.

This conjunction, ideally, gives us a chance to let go of, or purge, ways of being that are no longer reflective of who we are, or no longer appropriate for us, so that we can move forward. Moving forward, too, in this case, also suggests moving toward the more feelings-oriented North Node in Cancer, as the North Node signifies our future growth, or where we are heading. In other words, we are allowing ourselves, with this aspect, the freedom now to express more of what is in our heart (Cancer), while, at the same time, retreating from a position of feeling that we must always be in charge or control of everything and everyone (Capricorn). Capricorn can also expose our previous cultural conditioning that orients us to do, perhaps, what is socially acceptable rather than what is totally honest for us.

Since Pluto also symbolizes what is below the surface, or at our core, including the realm of the unconscious, it’s possible that we may also experience now elements, situations, or relationships that unite us with our buried or more distant past. Again, too, the purpose of this re-emergence of the past is not to haunt us or to lay a guilt trip on us, but rather, to free us from whatever has been trapped inside.

“Be not the slave of your own past – plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep, and swim far, so you shall come back with new self-respect, with new power, and with an advanced experience that shall explain and overlook the old.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

On a non-personal level, Pluto conjunct the South Node can also shed light on tangible things or structures that are broken down around us that need to be either fixed, repaired, or replaced. This could include, for instance, discovering hidden foundational issues in a house or building. Or maybe finding out about hard-to-detect plumbing or sewage leaks. Isn’t it interesting, too, how the outer structures of our lives will often symbolically mirror or reflect what is going on with us on an internal level?

On This Day in History: On April 4, 1968, US Civil Rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. is assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

Famous April 4 Birthdays: Arthur Murray, Muddy Waters, Maya Angelou, Anthony Perkins, Clive Davis, Kitty Kelley, Robert Downey Jr.
