“Life is a blank canvas, and you need to throw all the paint on it you can.” Danny Kaye

COSMIC WEATHER:

The waning Moon remains in “probing” Scorpio until mid-morning (10:50 am), when it shifts into enthusiastic, “adventurous” Sagittarius, a lunar placement that naturally poises us for more outward action and risk-taking. While the Moon is “void-of-course” in Scorpio, we may want to concentrate our energy on finishing up old projects or tasks. Then, when it enters Sadge, we can embark upon new activities.

While the Moon is devoid of major aspects today. a highly noteworthy sextile from “initiating” Mars in Scorpio to “transforming” Pluto in Capricorn, which is exact tomorrow morning, is already beginning to exert its influence. Even though this is a short-term aspect, lasting only a few days, it can, on occasion, alter the landscape of our lives in rather profound or remarkable ways. Too, this may particularly be the case now because motivator Mars is very, very strong in Scorpio, a sign that it co-rules with Pluto. Also, we may feel a heightened sense of our own destiny now, or what it is that we were put on this earth to do.

COSMIC WEATHER:

The Moon will be residing in “intimate” Scorpio for the entire day. This lunar placement allows us to feel things more deeply, to peel back the layers. It also motivates us to act on our feelings or convictions in a determined manner that could transform our world in a palpable way, especially since the Moon is making planetary aspects to Mars (initiative), Pluto (renewal), Mercury (ideas), and Jupiter (opportunity).

Astrology for January 31, 2016: Mercury Squares Uranus

“It is a narrow mind which cannot look at a subject from various points of view.” George Eliot

Moon, Dream, Fantasy, Surreal, Night

COSMIC WEATHER:

The Moon in intense Scorpio today inspires us to seek out more passionate experiences that fully engage our emotions or senses. A flowing trine to “spiritual” Neptune (3:58 pm) also potentially enhances our empathy and psychic sensitivity. Too, an agreeable sextile to “collaborative” Venus (7:08 pm) works to stimulate our social, romantic, or artistic side. This might be a wonderful afternoon or evening for an outing to an art gallery, or to the theater. Or, to be involved in healing projects. The Moon is also in its Last Quarter phase, late tonight (at 10:28 pm). This could generate more of an impetus within us to sort out what’s working and what’s not, in preparation for the upcoming New Moon, next week

Intellectual Mercury is also forming a square to “restless” Uranus, tonight (10:41 pm). This dynamic and inventive energy can open our eyes to alternate ways of looking at issues. It can also trigger sudden inspirations or “light-bulb” moments in which we finally “get something” even if the matter has been explained to us several times before. On the shadow side, Mercury square Uranus can sometimes be a bit disruptive for us mentally. For instance, we are perhaps more apt to blurt out stuff now without really thinking about the consequences of our speech. Still, often embedded in the seeming disruption of a Mercury-Uranus transit is a hidden opportunity for us to get unstuck, as we temporarily feel less wedded to convention, or the “status quo.”

This Date in History: On January 31, 1865, Congress passes 13th Amendment, abolishing slavery in America (121-24). 

On January 31, 1876, the United States orders all Native Americans to move into reservations.

Astrology January 29th – 30th: Venus Sextiles Neptune

“You don’t have to go looking for love when it’s where you come from.” ~Werner Erhard

Flamingo, Valentine, Heart

COSMIC WEATHER:

The Moon continues in “relationship” Libra all of today and most of tomorrow (until 10:50 pm). Also, shortly after midnight on Saturday (12:52 am), the Mercury and Pluto “truth-seeking” conjunction, that has been around all week, finally becomes exact.

Late Saturday morning (11:45 am), Venus, the planetary ruler of Libra, is also forming a dreamy sextile aspect to “transcendent” Neptune, the higher octave of Venus. Venus symbolizes, among other things, the notion of “romantic love,” while Neptune goes one step further to archetypally epitomize “unconditional love,” or what some regard as “divine love,” or an “infinite love.”

Accordingly, when Venus and Neptune are paired together, there can be a tendency or desire to want to idealize our mates or partners, or to place them on the proverbial pedestal. Author Robert Brault once said that, “Love is the greatest touch-up artist of all.” 

This Venus-Neptune period can also be a time when our creativity crests.

*All times EST.

This Date in History: Adolf Hitler was named the German Chancellor on January 30, 1933. Interestingly, “rebellious” Uranus was also in Aries, as it is today, at 19 degrees, and also square to “transforming” Pluto, which was at 21 degrees of Cancer then. Also, the Sun (leadership) was conjunct (judgmental, restrictive) Saturn, and Uranus was quinqunx to a Mars-Jupiter conjunction in “purifying” Virgo. Jupiter was also at 22 degrees of Virgo, exactly the same degree where it is today. On the shadow side, when Mars and Jupiter align, we often seen a rise in fanaticism.

Also, that very same day in America, the “Lone Ranger” was heard on radio for the first time. The program ran for 2,956 episodes and ended in 1955.

Astrology for January 28, 2016: Moon Leaves Virgo for Libra

“No one has a problem with the first mile of a journey. Even an infant could do fine for a while. But it isn’t the start that matters. It’s the finish line.” Julien Smith

Road, Sky, Mountains, Clouds, Black

COSMIC WEATHER:

We are officially wrapping up the “first Virgo Moon period” of the new year, this morning. The Moon leaves “problem-solving” Virgo for “diplomatic” Libra, at 9:59 am. The Virgo Moon is also “void-of-course” today, so it is perhaps best to attend to, or finish up, any ongoing tasks while the Moon is still deposited in this sign. Then, when it cascades into “graceful” Libra, we are cosmically cleared to undertake new endeavors. Libra, the sign of the other, centers our attention on the relationship realm, and balancing the needs of self with the needs of others.

The Libra Moon’s only aspect today is a square, late tonight, to Venus, its planetary ruler (11:12 pm), which is presently in “traditional” Capricorn. Saturn, the ruler of Capricorn, is exalted in Libra, so really there is quite a bit of agreement or natural flow between Venus in Capricorn and the Moon in Libra, even though the square aspect can sometimes coincide with some friction, inner restlessness, or feelings of awkwardness. Generally, Moon-Venus aspects tend to bring out our social side, so if we’re still up, at this hour, we may want to be around people we like, doing things we enjoy. It may also be a time when we seriously ponder, journal, or discuss the nature of our relationships and how they are fitting in with our long-term plans or goals for our self.

“We have to recognise that there cannot be relationships unless there is commitment, unless there is loyalty, unless there is love, patience, persistence.” Cornel West

*All times are EST.

This Date in History: On January 28, 1754 Horace Walpole reportedly coined the word “serendipity.” Also, thirty years ago today the American Shuttle Orbiter “Challenger” blew up 73 seconds after liftoff with seven astronauts on board (history.com).

Astrology for January 27, 2016: Seeking Self-Betterment

Tags

, , , ,

“Have you realized that today is the tomorrow you talked about yesterday? It is your responsibility to change your life for the better.” Jaachynma N.E. Agu

Star Clusters, Galaxy, Star, Ngc 602

COSMIC WEATHER:

The Moon continues another day in “corrective” Virgo, ideally encouraging us to embrace a path of self-betterment. Also, it is spotlighting – via two early morning trine aspects – the ongoing “Mercury-Pluto conjunction,” a dialogue that is taking place in “serious,” Saturn-ruled Capricorn. This is, no doubt, giving way to a lot of DEEP, DEEP STUFF going on inside many of us. Mercury-Pluto, characteristically, helps us to get at the truth, on many levels.

Also, the Virgo Moon’s last aspect of the day, before turning void-of-course, is a supportive conjunction to expansive Jupiter, “the planet of abundance” (7:11 pm EST). Jupiter is also presently conjunct the “futuristic” North Node of the Moon. Possibly suggesting that this is a grand chance for us to experience a special “rendezvous with destiny!”

“Order and simplification are the first steps towards mastery of a subject.” Thomas Mann

Blossom, Bloom, Pink, Macro, Garden

COSMIC WEATHER:

The Moon in “organizing” Virgo, today, helps us to get our affairs in order. It is also a very good time to be proactive about things, or to anticipate what may lie ahead. Virgo’s ruler, Mercury, is also conjunct “eliminating” Pluto, which is a green light for our ability to effectively phase out or discern what is no longer needed.

Astrology for January 25, 2016: Mercury Stations Direct in Capricorn

Tags

, , , , , , ,

“When people will not weed their own minds, they are apt to be overrun by nettles.” Horace Walpole

Planet, Symbols, Mercury, Astronomical

COSMIC WEATHER:

Ideally, while “intellectual” Mercury has been retrograde for the last three weeks or so, we have been busy mulling over our recent decisions or ideas on things – including probably doing some “mental de-weeding.” Now, we are just about ready to move forward with our worldly agendas, as Mercury stations direct in “professionally ambitious” Capricorn this afternoon (4:50 pm EST). We may want to wait, though, for a few more days, before taking any important action, allowing Mercury a chance to pick up some speed. It will also be in its “shadow period” until close to Valentine’s Day, which also happens to be Michael Bloomberg’s 74th birthday. Bloomberg announced, this weekend, that he may run for U.S. President as an independent candidate.

Mercury is also stationing direct conjunct “investigative” Pluto. This intense aspect can deliver to us greater clarity, as well as incline us to want to ponder the “hidden nature of things.” It is also a time when secrets may be revealed. On the shadow side, we may need to, however, be on the lookout for obsessive type thinking now. Mercury and Pluto will be aligned, all this week, forming an exact conjunction on January 30.

Of course, in the Eastern portion of the U.S., many of us have also been dealing with incredible traffic snarls due to the extreme (Pluto) winter weather. Thousands of airline flights have been canceled from the historic snowfalls. Mercury also governs travel and transportation. Too, Mercury-Pluto aspects sometimes expose us to “crisis situations” that require our immediate attention. Physicist and professor of science Alan Chalmers once remarked that crises are often a chance for us to refine our life. “In them you discover what you are.” Indian Leader Jawaharial Nehru also observed that “every little thing counts in a crisis.”

If you have your natal chart, you may also want to take note of what house (or area of life) that Mercury is transiting through now, as that is where you will likely be experiencing some positive momentum now, as well as potentially more insight into how to better manage that sector of your life.

Astrology November 26, 2015: Saturn Squares Neptune

“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. John Lennon

Water, Reflections, Mirroring, Trees

Today’s Energy:

As we count our many blessings this Thanksgiving Day, Saturn in Sagittarius is exactly squaring Neptune in Pisces, the first of three meet-ups that will be occurring over the course of the next year. This aspect has actually been building for a few weeks already. Saturn represents “form” or the “material world,” or what many describe as the “power of manifestation.” In addition, it denotes such things as discipline, experience or maturity, authority figures, achievement, and conservation. On the shadow side, it is a marker of our fears. Included here might be Saturn acting as the official scorekeeper of all that divides us, or makes us feel alone in the world.

Neptune, on the other hand, symbolizes “formlessness,” or the “dissolving of matter,” or what some might regard as the “invisible realm of spirit,” which, for many of us, can be a much more ambiguous concept to grasp or relate to. At its finest, Neptune is associated with such things as faith, hope, unity, compassion, and idealism, and as the higher octave of Venus, “divine love,” – or “unconditional love,” if you prefer. It also governs vision and the power of our imagination. Neptune can also, on the shadow side, be the face of such things as escapism, addiction, trickery, or deception.

The “square aspect” is an alignment that forces us to take action on a matter, as a way of resolving something. So, in this case, we may be deciding, among other things, on whether to be fearful, anxious, or suspicious (Saturn) – or whether to have faith or trust (Neptune). Or, maybe we conclude that it’s not an either or situation at all: that we can feel the fear, the angst, the pain, but still extend the olive branch anyway. Or, maybe if we’re unhappy with our work (Saturn), instead of walking in and quitting in haste (Neptune), we step back and see if we can evaluate the reasons for our dissatisfaction; be more structured or strategic (Saturn) in our approach.

Saturn-Neptune together tends to make us, in general, more starkly aware of our perceived limitations or drawbacks (Saturn), but the issue is whether or not we are going to let them define  who we are. And, whether or not we are going to let them hijack or ride roughshod over our dreams or vision (Neptune), or destroy our idealism.

Sometimes, too, when both of these planets pair up, we’re at a definite crossroads, in our lives, and basically unsure of which way to turn. Neptune does, after all, denote foggy conditions! So, it could be that the square energy might be a perfect time for us to just kick back and push the pause button a while, to lay low on our earthly agenda (Saturn), to grant ourselves a well-deserved time out (Neptune), until we’re better able to see our way ahead.  It’s possible that some of the visions that we’ve had for ourselves, some of the big dreams, are no longer really a go for us, no longer a viable option, and we have to face the music and quit kicking the can down the road. Or, we may decide instead that some dreams are salvageable, but that we need to maybe, at least for the time being, narrow the scope of them (Saturn), or do some creative re-configuring (Neptune), so as to not feel overwhelmed by our present situation. Kind of like when you have a cluttered house, if you at least restore order to part of it, you normally immediately feel better.

Happy Thanksgiving! Wishing you many blessings your way.

Astrology November 25, 2015: Full Moon in Gemini

Tags

, , , , , , ,

“In the age of technology there is constant access to vast amounts of information. The basket overflows; people get overwhelmed; the eye of the storm is not so much what goes on in the world, it is the confusion of how to think, feel, digest, and react to what goes on.” Criss Jami

Moon, Full Moon, Moonlight

Today’s Energy:

A Full Moon in restless “Gemini the Messenger” (5:44 pm EST) revs up our thought processes and curiosity, potentially resulting in “information overload,” if we’re not careful. Since Gemini is the official sign of communication, there can also be a strong desire now to want to share what we find out with others, kind of like a cub reporter with a red hot news scoop. Gemini also formally governs news organizations and the media.

In general, Mercury-ruled Gemini symbolizes our logical thinking, our sense of wonderment, our interaction with our immediate environment, including our relationships with our neighbors or siblings. This sign is also associated with mass transit and travel.

Full Moons represent culmination points and can bring matters to a head, including what was undertaken – the intentions that were set – during the previous New Moon, which in this case, would have been the New Moon in the “transformational” sign of Scorpio, on November 11th.

Full Moons are also often revelatory, so it’s possible that new information will filter out to us now that causes us to have a fresh takeaway or a new slant on things. It’s also a good time to possibly even reflect upon the particular way that we individually process or sort out our daily experiences, or how we get to know things for ourselves. This could also include assessing our personal style of learning. For example, I recently concluded that I learn best when I take in information via audio versus more passive book reading. At least my level of retention seems to be better with the audio, even though I love to read.

With this Full Moon in Gemini, the Sun is in opposing Sagittarius, the sign of higher understanding, which suggests that, during this lunation, we are also attempting to attach meaning or significance (Sagittarius) to the information that we are receiving or gathering (Gemini). Or, as Criss Jami alludes to in the opening quote of this blog, we are trying to sort everything out in such a way that we know “how to think, feel, digest, and react to what goes on.”

This Gemini Full Moon is also opposing Mercury and Saturn in Sagittarius – which are both conjunct the Sun – as well as squaring Neptune in Pisces, so we may also be grappling with how our beliefs (Sagittarius) pertaining to safety or security issues (Saturn) impact or shape our willingness to be open, loving, and compassionate (Neptune) with others. Or, how our fears, guilt, or past conditioning (Saturn) may serve to keep us separated from each other – instead of unified (Neptune) – and what to do about it.

Questions for Today:  What are you most curious about? What is something that you feel compelled to share with the world? How do you go about sifting through news reports for accuracy? How do you feel about trusting strangers?
