Cosmic Weather:

“It is easier to believe in the ideal than it is to achieve it, but it is impossible to achieve the ideal if one does not believe in it.” Josh Steimie

With motivating Mars conjunct idealistic Neptune in Pisces (at 10:13 am) our actions may be guided now more by our dreams, fantasies, or illusions than perhaps by tangible reality. This can also be an especially creative time for artistic endeavors that rely largely on imagination or inspiration. Others of us may also feel a strong pull toward the spiritual or transcendent realm, as well as maybe feel more singularly directed by a sense of selflessness or compassion or unconditional love. Too, in some cases, Mars-Neptune can give rise to elements of martyrdom in which we can feel compelled to give ourselves over to a larger cause.

On the shadow side, Mars-Neptune alignments can also occasionally be very ego-denying, which can sometimes result in second-guessing or even doubting ourselves as firm backing from others may be harder or more elusive for us to obtain now. Or, it’s also possible that we may simply be feeling more misunderstood or misrepresented at this time. In some instances, Mars-Neptune aspects are also linked with actual retreat or surrender on matters, as Mars rules the urge for assertion and merged with dissolving, diffusive Neptune there can be an erosion or subjugation of that urge. It may also be the case that there’s simply not enough physical energy available to power our moves now or to want to deal with or take on any opposition.

Generally, Mars-Neptune aspects are often a good time to just chill out or relax, go with the flow, regroup our energies, turn inward and reflect until a clearer perspective re-emerges on the horizon – which it will – and we feel, once again, on more solid footing, more confident of what the next right step should be.

Astrology Past: The last time we had Mars conjunct Neptune in Pisces (December 6, 2018), U.S. President George H.W. Bush was laid to rest next to his wife and daughter at his presidential library in College Station, Texas. Five living presidents, family, friends, and dignitaries from around the country and the world filled Washington National Cathedral for his funeral.

“We are a nation of communities…a brilliant diversity spread like stars, like a thousand points of light in a broad and peaceful sky.” George H.W. Bush

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

Cosmic Weather:

“When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.” Audre Lorde

The cosmic traffic is lighter today as we head into tomorrow’s Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse. Luna, which sets the emotional tone or tenor, shifts around midday (1:17 pm) from deeper, darker Scorpio – an orientation focused more on the less obvious or subterranean root causes of things – to adventurous, aspirational Sagittarius (1:17 pm).

With the Waxing Moon deposited in fire-sign Sadge, we are more apt to want to directly act out our emotions. Our actions, at this time, also tend to be fueled more by our ideals, personal beliefs, or convictions. Shortly after Luna enters Sagittarius, it also sextiles responsibility-oriented Saturn Rx in innovative, more progressive Aquarius (at 3:43 pm). This may direct us to focus our attention on taking more practical steps that have a higher probability of yielding tangible results in the real world.

“The youth gets together his materials to build a bridge to the moon, or, perchance, a palace or temple on the earth, and, at length, the middle-aged man concludes to build a woodshed with them.” Henry David Thoreau

Astrology June 3, 2020: Sun Conjunct Venus Retrograde

Tags

Cosmic Weather:

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

Retrograde Venus (the goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and money) is in inferior conjunction with the Sun in Gemini today (at 1:44 pm), denoting the midpoint cycle of Venus’s current retrograde cycle as well as a symbolizing a new beginning in the Sun and Venus relationship. This conjunction also marks the transition from Venus as an evening star to a morning star.

Archetypally, sweet Venus tends to work as a harmonizer or balancer and retrograde in the communication sign of Gemini, there is potentially more promise now for soothing words or gestures to be able to work their special healing magic to fill what was perhaps an earlier void or lack of connection. This Sun-Venus alignment generally rallies us to put more energy into such things as being friendly or outgoing as the relationship realm is something that becomes much more vital or important now to who we are and how we see ourselves.

Too, with Venus retrograde, it could be that we have important new insights about the overall nature of our relationship or social or material needs as well as maybe glean a better understanding or perspective of what it is that we genuinely value or require in our lives order for us to feel truly happy or at least more emotionally content.

On another level, Sun-Venus aspects often help to generate more ease or flow in financial matters and may coincide with an increased desire to be surrounded by things of beauty, luxury, or objects of art.

The Waxing Moon is also in probing Scorpio, all day, suggesting our emotions are more intense at this time and our perceptions are potentially sharper. Often when Luna is here we are looking to become more fully engaged with or impassioned by our experiences. There can also be more ability or readiness for transformation. On a higher level, Scorpio represents a phoenix rising from the ashes.

“Scared and sacred are spelled with the same letters. Awful proceeds from the same root word as awesome. Terrify and terrific. Every negative experience holds the seed of transformation.” Alan Cohen

*All times EDT.

On This Day in History: On June 3, 1965, astronaut Edward H. White became the first American to “walk” in space during the flight of Gemini 4. White floated free outside the spacecraft, tethered to it, for approximately 20 minutes. Gemini 4 would also be the first multi-day (four-day) space flight by the United States, designed to show that it was possible for humans to remain in Outer space for extended lengths of time.  (Wikipedia)

Astrologically, that day, expansive Jupiter, the empowering Sun, and the future-oriented North Node were conjunct in mobile, environmentally-curious Gemini and all were square to breakthrough Uranus, the planetary ruler of space travel and technology. Revolutionizing Uranus was also conjunct transformational Pluto in perfecting Virgo, the zodiacal sign which is associated with tangibly improving our skill set or expertise. 

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

Cosmic Weather:

“Liberation means you don’t have to be silenced.” Toni Morrison

Something unexpected or novel could be a catalyst, or serve as fodder, for sending us off in a potentially stimulating or liberating new direction that we maybe had not consciously anticipated. This is also a good time to perhaps fashion fresh approaches to old problems or stalemate situations as the innovative Mars-Uranus energy tends to awaken both our “inner tinkerer” and “inner reformer.”

Intellectual Mercury is also quinqunx Pluto Rx supplying us with, among other things, plenty of curiosity regarding what lies below the surface of matters. Archetypally, intense Mercury-Pluto energy can often operate a bit like a dog with a bone in that once it grabs ahold of an idea or a strategy, it doesn’t let go.

Waxing Luna is also in her home sign of nurturing Cancer, all day, so we are naturally attracted to outlets now that draw out or play to our emotions.

(Mars in Pisces sextile Uranus in Taurus, at 2:48 am; Mercury in Gemini quinqux Pluto Rx in Capricorn, 12:26 am.)

*All times EDT.

On This Day in History: On May 25, 1927, Henry Ford announces that he is ending production of the Model T Ford, a car that’s credited with “putting the world on wheels.” Reportedly, the vehicle was discontinued because it had become technologically obsolete.

In the astrology, that day, the empowering Sun was in “transportation-ruling” Gemini and applying to a one-degree opposition to “curtailing” Saturn in futuristic Sagittarius. Sun-Saturn aspects, particularly the opposition, are often associated with phasing out what is no longer working or essential for us.

Meanwhile, on the very next day, May 26th, when the Sun-Saturn opposition was exact, Henry Ford and the Ford Motor Company produced the last – and 15th million – Model T Ford / Tin Lizzie.

Remember and Honor this Memorial Day. Please be safe and well!

Astrology May 18, 2020: The Waning Moon is in Enterprising Aries

Tags

Cosmic Weather:

“Do whatever you do intensely. The artist is the man who leaves the crowd and goes pioneering. With him there is an idea which is his life.” Robert Henri

We get a nice ‘pop’ to start out our Monday with Luna in trailblazing Aries, characteristically a potent catalyst for summoning forth our inner pioneer. The Aries Moon is associated with such personal qualities as boldness, bravery, and enthusiasm. It always encourages us to get off the sidelines and take more independent-type action. Of course, with Luna also moving into its Waning Crescent Phase this afternoon (12:16 pm), what we mainly want to be focusing on now is finishing up old projects versus undertaking anything new. (We will once again be cosmically cleared for new endeavors with the New Moon in Gemini on the 22nd.)

Luna in Aries will also be forming a sextile to communicator Mercury today (at 1:17 pm), which is excellent for getting our thoughts and ideas across to others in a very enthusiastic and direct manner. This is also very good for listening and learning. Plus, Mercury is deposited in its home sign of curious Gemini, so it’s theoretically operating at optimum intellectual capacity!

Too, we still have an expansive Sun trine Jupiter Rx aspect hovering around us today (which was exact yesterday afternoon), which can also beneficially serve to rachet up our optimism and can-do spirit. This can also be positive for business or commerce, especially with the empowering Sun still in materially-minded Taurus and Jupiter Rx in corporate/government-ruling Capricorn. Also, on a collective level, of course, we are seeing many businesses and other enterprises finally re-opening or resuming many of their activities or operations now as governments formally give the go-ahead to do so, which is the sort of growth or moving forward that is typically associated or expected with Jupiter, which archetypally represents abundance and wanting to do things on a grand scale as well as our personal or global vision of the future. Sun-Jupiter energy can also help us to adapt to change as it naturally inspires us to have more trust and faith in ourselves which then enables us to move beyond our fears.

“The reason birds can fly and we can’t is simply because they have perfect faith, for to have faith is to have wings.” J.M. Barrie

Astrology May 10, 2020: Mercury Trine Jupiter, Sun Sextile Neptune

Cosmic Weather:

“Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in a while, or the light won’t come in.” Isaac Asimov

Intellectual Mercury trining optimistic Jupiter today (at 10:36 am) can ideally serve to broaden our perspectives as we are potentially more receptive at this time to sampling new information or at least toying around with new ideas, as expansive Jupiter symbolizes our ongoing search for higher meaning and purpose. Too, with Mercury still deposited in down-to-earth Taurus and Jupiter ensconced in professionally ambitious Capricorn, we may be particularly interested now in scoping out fresh ways to solidify our footing in the material world. Generally, Mercury-Jupiter is also excellent for all types of discussions or for drafting agreements or contracts, especially since there is normally more of a willingness now to bend or give a little in order to make things work.

The illuminating Sun in Taurus is also sextiling transcendent Neptune in Pisces, this afternoon (at 12:16 pm). This is a more subtle aspect that can nudge us to move beyond the realm of our everyday ego concerns or the mundane, to seek out something that speaks to the needs of our Soul or Spirit. It is an energy associated with such things as compassion, acts of kindness, and charitable giving. Archetypally, Neptune, known as the Great Dissolver, aims to unify or to remove the perceived boundaries or barriers that exist between us. Also, perhaps, a real-world example of Neptune’s influence: Two days ago, on May 8th, was the 75th anniversary of V-E Day, marking the unconditional surrender of Nazi Germany to the Allied forces, ending World War II in Europe. Now, if we go back in time to see what was occurring astrologically on May 8, 1945, we find that assertive Mars in Aries (which rules war and the military) was exactly opposite Neptune, which was also in the diplomatic sign of Libra. Neptune here presumably helping to dissolve/defuse/dismantle the Martian aggression urge, ultimately paving the way for the prospect of peace again. Neptune is often a dominant factor in peace agreements or acts of surrender.

“Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything – anger, anxiety, or possessions – we cannot be free.” Thich Nhat Hanh

Astrology May 9, 2020: Mercury Trine Pluto

Tags

Cosmic Weather:

“The world is full of magical things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.” W. B. Yeats

Today is a great time to go deeper with our thinking as intellectual Mercury forms a harmonious, waxing trine to investigative Pluto Rx (at 9:17 am), an aspect that naturally poises us to trek below the surface to get to the core of a matter or to uncover what may be buried or hidden in the depths. It’s also kind of like we may sense in our gut now that there’s more to something than what’s being presented. With Mercury also deposited in grounded Taurus we are likely more apt to come away now with some practical insights or ideas that are very useful for our daily lives, especially if we do decide to do a little poking around. Also, reflecting on what it is that we really value (Taurus) might be very instructive for us now, especially in possibly helping to order or re-order our priorities or maybe in determining how we should be spending our time or investing our resources.

Another thing to possibly muse about now: It was on January 12th of this year that Saturn and Pluto were exactly conjunct in Capricorn (an aspect that was also a long time in the making). Also in the mix then was messenger Mercury, which individually conjuncted both Saturn and Pluto, shortly beforehand, that day. It could be that today’s Mercury-Pluto trine aspect imparts some follow-up news or messages or offers up a few valuable insights or takeaways pertaining to that period.

Some famous people born with Mercury trine Pluto: Carrie Underwood, Elizabeth Montgomery, Johnny Carson, Jerry Seinfeld, Flip Wilson, Stephen Spielberg.

Astrology May 7, 2020: Full Moon in Scorpio

Tags

, , , , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

“The causes of every human action, Tolstoy thought, were so manifold, so complex, and so deeply hidden in unconscious motivations that it is impossible to know why anything ever happened.” Mortimer J. Adler and Charles Van Doren

There’s a Full Moon in transformational Scorpio, this morning (at 6:45 am). It’s also the last Supermoon of 2020 (the other two were in March and April). Meaning that it’s occurring at the closest point to Earth during its orbit, making it appear larger and brighter.

Today’s Full Moon is also referred to in the Old Farmer’s Almanac as the “Full Flower Moon,” a name that originated with the Native Americans. Obviously echoing Mother Nature’s return to abundance in the Northern hemisphere when so much is abloom and full of life.

With today’s lunation, we are basically seeking to balance our need for physical comfort, safety, and security (Sun in Taurus) with an opposing desire for fulfillment or renewal in the spiritual/non-physical/inner realm (Moon in Scorpio). Whenever Luna is deposited in Pluto-ruled Scorpio (the sign of life, death, and rebirth), we are made more keenly aware of the profound mysteries of our existence, with Scorpio intently focusing on what’s hidden or below the surface.

So having a powerful, revelatory Full Moon occurring in Scorpio now we potentially have, among other things, a very potent opportunity for ferreting out the truth, as we know it or understand it. Especially since this Full Moon is forming an opposition to information-minded Mercury, which only three days ago formed an exact superior conjunction with the Sun. Normally a time (again) when we are presented with clear data or findings or experience sudden epiphanies. It could also be that today’s Full Moon opposition to that same Mercury-Sun meetup point takes those discoveries or results, one step further. Too, generally with a culminating Full Moon, we can have abrupt endings or receive final outcomes or are able to come to some pretty accurate conclusions or assessments about various elements of our lives, including possibly getting a good handle now on how we are coming along with the intentions that we may have set, or the actions that were taken, during the New Moon in Taurus, two weeks ago. 

Additionally, the Full Moon in passionate Scorpio may find our emotions at peak intensity, especially since Scorpio is a fixed water sign which tends to always feel things very deeply. There can also be more of an emphasis now on such issues as intimacy and trust, shared resources, and purging or refurbishing.

Also today, mental Mercury, in pragmatic Taurus, is forming a sextile to mystical Neptune in Pisces. This more subtle influence may help to bring our dreams into sharper focus. It can also supply us with a greater ability to express on an intellectual level what we are sensing more intuitively. Accordingly, today might also be a fun time to throw a few Tarot cards and see what comes up for us. It’s also an excellent time to investigate our nocturnal dreams. We may be experiencing more vivid dreams than usual now.

*All times EDT.

Happy Full Moon Blessings! Hope it’s a good one! Be safe and well.

Astrology May 5, 2020: The Lunar Nodes Change Signs

Tags

Cosmic Weather:

“Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.” John Adams

The North Node (symbolizing the future) moves into Gemini today and the South Node (representing the past) moves into opposing Sagittarius, signs they will occupy for the next 18 months. (The last time we had this same setup was from October of 2001 to April of 2003.)

In general, during this ingress, we are learning to be more curious, to do more questioning to learn how others think, and to examine facts more closely before rendering our decisions. Simultaneously, we are seeking to move away from wholesale rejection of others’ ideas or belief systems simply because they are in conflict with our own. We are also wanting to back up or reinforce our faith now with facts.

*All times EDT.

On This Day in History: John Scopes was arrested by Tennesse authorities on May 5, 1925, for teaching evolution in his high school science class. They charged him with having violated a newly enacted law (The Butler Act) that criminalized the teaching of human evolution in the state’s public schools. The famous “Scopes Trial” (also known as the “Scopes Monkey Trial”) pitted advocates of creationism against those who believed in evolution.

(Astrologically, when Scopes was arrested on May 5, information-minded Mercury, in trail-blazing Aries, was exactly square to philosophical Jupiter in traditionally-minded Capricorn. With Mercury-Jupiter aspects we generally aim to broaden our understanding or widen our perspectives and there is also often marked enthusiasm for sharing what it is that we have learned or studied. Jupiter, the planet which symbolizes the search for higher meaning, also formally governs both teaching and religion. On the shadow side, especially with the square, there can be arrogance, narrow-mindedness, self-righteousness, as well as a tendency towards proselytizing others towards our own point of view.)

“If today you can take a thing like evolution and make it a crime to teach it in the public school, tomorrow you can make it a crime to teach it in the private schools, and the next year you can make it a crime to teach it to the hustings or in the church. At the next session, you may ban books and the newspapers.”  – Clarence Darrow (the famed trial lawyer who represented John Scopes at his trial.)

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Hope it’s a good one! Be safe and well.

Cosmic Weather:

“If one is master of one thing and understands one thing well, one has at the same time, insight into and understanding of many things.” Vincent Van Gogh

Intellectual Mercury is in superior conjunction with the purposeful Sun in grounded Taurus today (5:41 pm), which, in particular, could provide us with some epiphanies or aha moments pertaining to those things represented by Taurus, such as our values, money, personal possessions, and basic physical needs. Since the superior conjunction acts like a Full Moon, we may also see some of our ideas or plans coming to fruition now that were seeded during the inferior conjunction of Mercury and the Sun in dreamy Pisces, which occurred back on February 25th, when Mercury was retrograde. (The superior conjunction occurs when Mercury and the Sun are about halfway between the previous and next retrograde cycle.)

Waxing Luna also exited meticulous Virgo for balancing Libra, early this morning (at 3:09 am), which is always positive for putting us in a more cooperative spirit as well as inspiring us to seek out justice and fairness.

“The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.” Theodore Parker.

On This Day in History: On May 4, 1979, Margaret Thatcher (born 10/13/25) becomes the first woman to be elected Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

(In the sky, that day, Mercury, Venus, and Mars were all conjunct in pioneering Aries and trine to idealistic Neptune in Sagittarius (the sign which rules politicians). This same trio of planets was also opposing transformational Pluto in equality-minded Libra.)

Thatcher served as Prime Minister from 1979 to 1990 and leader of the Conservative Party from 1975 to 1990. (Wikipedia)
