Astrology February 23, 2022: Mars Sextiles Neptune, Last Quarter Moon

Cosmic Weather:

“Look at everything always as though you were seeing it either for the first or last time: Thus is your time on earth filled with glory.” – Betty Smith, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.

On this glorious “hump day,” we are treated to a waning Luna entering philosophical, freedom-loving Sagittarius (8:29 am).

Energizing Mars in Capricorn is also forming a waning sextile to dreamy Neptune in Pisces (2:12 pm). There is an infusion of practical wherewithal and yearning to pursue our dreams in a more creative or imaginative way. Our actions may also be guided more by compassion or caring for the underdog. We are also possibly more tempted to overlook or forgive grievances/transgressions in a bid to foster or usher in healing. One shadow side here: We may be more prone to engaging in delusional or too fanciful behavior now, which is why we may want to wait for certain things to gel before going all in on something that is relatively new or untested. It is also probably a good thing that Mars is deposited in “show-me-the-money” Capricorn, as it may help us remain more tethered to the ground.

Finally, we have the Last Quarter Moon occurring this afternoon (5:32 pm). With Luna decreasing in light, this is generally not the time for embarking on new beginnings; rather, it is a period for applying finishing touches as well as for re-assessing or updating what we have recently learned or been made aware of. Our understanding of what we deem to be the truth could also be shifting.

*All Times EST

Born On This Day: Naruhito, Emperor of Japan, in 1960, in Tokyo, Japan. He succeeded to the Chrysanthemum Throne on May 1, 2019, following the abdication of his father, Akihito, the day before, beginning the Reiwa period. According to Japan’s traditional order of succession, he is the 126th member of the dynasty.

(Naruhito ascended to the throne in the midst of his second Saturn return in Capricorn. Transiting Saturn was also exactly conjunct his natal sixth house, governing work or duties, often a time of new responsibilities as well as a period when our day-to-day life can become more entangled.

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

Astrology for Twosday 2-22-2022: Luna in Scorpio Squares Saturn

Cosmic Weather:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.” Marianne Williamson

Waning Luna, in strategic Scorpio, is still holed up in her Gibbous phase dugout and throwing a “square-ball” to utilitarian Saturn in detached Aquarius (11:53 am). The atmosphere may feel a little tense now as both of these cosmic players are going at each other in fixed signs. That said, this may be a good time to take stock of our resources, including eliminating any redundancies or deadweight. We also may choose now to stick with what we know has worked for us in the past as well as collaborate closely with those who have already managed to earn our respect and trust. As the day progresses, flowing lunar aspects to relationship Venus (4:55 pm), assertive Mars (5:58 pm), and imaginative Neptune (7:00 pm) help to create more of a renewing sense of rich possibilities around us. “It’s the possibility that keeps me going, not the guarantee.” – Nicholas Sparks.

Numerologically, the fact that it’s “2-22-2022” is also all the buzz today – this Twosday – with Tuesday also being the 2nd day of the week! The “number 22” is considered to be a Master Number and represents the Master Builder/Master Architect. It’s the number that is said to bring grand visions to life in the material world. The Chinese people also view the “number two” as very auspicious, believing good things come in pairs. With that said, today we may want to consider setting an intention (or maybe two intentions!) for ourselves around something that is more meaningful or consequential to us. Something that perhaps feels very much a part of our own special destiny. Author J.K. Rowling once quipped that destiny “is a name often given in retrospect to choices that had dramatic consequences.”

*All times EST

Born On This Day: George Washington, in 1732, an American soldier, statesman, and Founding Father who served as the first president of the United States from 1789 to 1797. Although several universities and other educational institutions bear his name, Washington did not attend college. He is the only major Founding Father without a college education. George Washington once stated: “Perseverance and spirit have done wonders in all ages.”

Hope “Twosday” is a good one for you! Please be safe and well.

Astrology February 21, 2022: Scorpio Moon Trines Pisces Sun

Tags

, , , ,

“Never apologize for showing your feelings. When you do, you are apologizing for the truth.” – Jose N. Harris

We start out our Monday catching a nice break from the Waning Moon in Scorpio trining the Sun in Pisces (9:27 am EST), an influence that hopefully allows us to feel more emotionally at ease with ourselves, and more inclined to show or reveal more of our intimate side, depending on the situation around us. Luna in Scorpio, by nature, generally tends to be more circumspect or guarded regarding who she lets into her inner circle; the Sun in Pisces intrinsically promotes more of a willingness to dissolve or blur the boundaries in a bid to foster a sense of oneness or immersion.

Intellectual Mercury in Aquarius is also semi-square Neptune in Pisces (10:13 am EST), suggesting some muddled communications or messages to wade through. In any case, if the facts don’t add up or we intuitively sense that something is missing or incomplete, we may want to victoriously hit the pause button, until more is known.

Born on This Day: French writer Anais Nin, in 1903. She once wrote: “We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect.” 

Hope it’s a good one! Please be safe and well. I’ve missed you!

Astrology November 23, 2021: Sun Conjuncts The South Node

Tags

, , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

Luna is spending a second full day in sentimental Cancer. Meaning we prefer to be surrounded by what is familiar or comfortable. The Sun is also having its annual conjunction with the South Node of the Moon (the past) in the philosophical sign of Sagittarius (2:03 pm). It could be that we conclude now, for whatever reason, that some of our beliefs or convictions may no longer be serving us, and we need to move on. Also, maybe examining or questioning those areas where we “need to be right” or “tend to prejudge” might also be very instructive now in helping us get to the core of what may be shaping our behavior or making us think or act as we do. 

“Examine your beliefs and break free.” – Maria Erving

*All times EST

Born on this Day: William Henry Pratt, in 1887, in Camberwell, London (d. 1969), better known by his stage name Boris Karloff, an English actor, who starred as Frankenstein’s monster in the horror film Frankenstein, which established him as a horror icon. He reprised the role in Bride of Frankenstein and Son of Frankenstein. (Wikipedia)

“The monster was the best friend I ever had.” Boris Karloff

Astrology November 22, 2021: Moon is in Nesting Cancer

Tags

, , ,

Cosmic Weather:

We start out our Monday with Luna in nesting Cancer spotlighting our nurturing or protective side. Making time for those who matter most to us can be very important now to our sense of well-being.

The Moon is also in her Waning Gibbous (or Disseminating) phase, a favorable period for sharing what we have learned.

While today’s lunar square to wounded healer Chiron (4:19 pm) may spawn some moodiness, a Moon-Uranus sextile, later tonight (10:59 pm), helps to inspire flashes of insight that could make us feel freer. It also fosters taking new approaches, or changing up our routine.

*All times EST

Born On This Day: Abigail Adams, the second US First Lady, in Weymouth, Massachusetts in 1744 (d. 1818), although this title was not used at the time. Abigail Adams was one of only two women to have been both wife and mother to two U.S. presidents (the other being Barbara Bush). Hailed for her now-famous admonition that the Founding Fathers “remember the ladies” in their new laws, Abigail Adams was not only an early advocate for women’s rights, she was a vital confidant and advisor to her husband John Adams. She opposed slavery and supported women’s education. (womenshistory.org). Adams once wrote on the topic of learning:

“Learning is not attained by chance, it must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence.”

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

Astrology November 21, 2021: Mercury Sextiles Pluto

Tags

, , ,

Cosmic Weather:

Winged messenger Mercury in Scorpio forms a waning sextile to Pluto in Capricorn, the great revealer (4:14 am):

A delicious opportunity for us to get “up close and personal” with our very own subconscious cache of hermetically sealed ideas, thoughts, perceptions, realities that, most likely, haven’t seen the light of day since Adam reportedly met Eve in that precarious, slippery, obscure “garden spot,” long ago.

Overall, Mercury-Pluto is excellent for discussing deeper topics, purging ourselves of erroneous assumptions, speaking our truth. It is also a good time to attend to such mundane things as will preparation, estate or succession planning, or dealing with insurance and tax matters.

***

The curious, ambidextrous Gemini Moon will also be right by our side, for most of the day, deftly assisting us with any of the requisite psychological rock turning, the transcription of therapists’ notes, puzzle-solving, the masterful execution of all the extraneous, perfunctory, neighborly chit-chat that perennially helps to make all of our everyday lives so totally memorable and meaningful. 🙂

“The only reason why we ask other people how their weekend was is so we can tell them about our own weekend.” Chuck Palahniuk

Late tonight (10:33 pm), Luna will enter homebody Cancer.

***

Too, in between the Moon sign changes, the Sun will undergo a radical costume change of its own leaving dark, foreboding Scorpio for rambling, gambling Sagittarius (9:34 pm), where it will joyously speculate and cajole until the cows come home. The Sun will remain in Sadge until December 21st.

“Sagittarius has the extraordinary ability to transform even the most mundane pursuit (say, a quick trip to the corner store) into a full-blown adventure.” – Aliza Kelly at Cosmopolitan.com

*All times EST.

This Day in History: On November 21, 1989, President George H.W. Bush signs into law legislation banning smoking on most domestic flights in the US.

Astrologically, that day, powerhouses Mars and Pluto were conjunct in transformational Scorpio and sextile to rules-enforcer Saturn, the disciplinarian, in hard-nosed Capricorn (the sign of its rulership). The Moon was also in health-conscious, abstemious Virgo. 

Born On This Day: French writer, philosopher, and playwright Voltaire, in 1694, in Paris (d. 1778). He once mused:

“God is a comedian playing to an audience that is too afraid to laugh.”

(Wow! I think he hit the ball out of the park, with that one! How about you?)

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

Astrology November 18, 2021: Mercury Trines Neptune Rx

Tags

, , ,

Cosmic Weather:

Delicately sandwiched between yesterday’s high-voltage Mars-Uranus opposition and tomorrow’s potent Lunar Eclipse in Taurus is today’s subtle, flowing trine from probing Mercury in Scorpio to fantasy-weaving Neptune Retrograde in Pisces (10:38 am). Ideally, this affords us a chance to catch our breath, a bit, and immerse ourselves in the gentle, rejuvenating waters of our imagination and intuition. Too, it’s not that we have to totally turn off our ‘secret-busting radar’ now; it’s just that we can perhaps go about the inquisitive voyage in a more nuanced, seemingly effortless manner, honing in on what wants to naturally appear when we opt to put our impressive selves on autopilot for a spell, giving our left brains a much-deserved break.

“When you reach the end of what you should know, you will be at the beginning of what you should sense.” Kahlil Gibran.

Mercury-Neptune can also heighten our compassion or sensitivity toward others, translating into a cool opportunity for us to pay it forward.

*All times EST.

Born On This Day: Wilma Mankiller, in 1945, in Tahlequah, Oklahoma (d. 2010). She is honored and recognized as the first female Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation. She is also the first woman elected as chief of a major Native tribe. She spent her life fighting for the rights of American Indians.

“In Iroquois society, leaders are encouraged to remember seven generations in the past and consider seven generations in the future when making decisions that affect the people.”

Astrology November 17, 2021: Mars Opposes Uranus Rx

Tags

, , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

The cosmic atmosphere is highly-charged today! Action-planet Mars, in Scorpio, is in opposition to erratic, freedom-loving Uranus (12:23 pm), the awakener, which is retrograde in the sign of Taurus the bull. While there can be sudden, liberating breakthroughs that can help us to leapfrog over obstacles or stalemates, there’s also the possibility that the results that come in now may be quite different than what we may have been expecting. This may especially be the case when we are operating reactively or largely on impulse. That is why it’s very important that we remain true to ourselves now, and our core values and goals, and not allow ourselves or our actions to be hijacked by the intensity or volatility of the moment. Remember, brakes are there for a reason: to use them! Typically, too, when these two highly-combustible planets pair up we usually want to exercise more caution for our physical safety or welfare, particularly when we are working around mechanical objects, operating equipment, or driving.

“Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.” Alexander Pope

*All times EST

Born On This Day: American film director, producer, and screenwriter Martin Scorsese in 1942. His many highly-acclaimed films include Goodfellas, Raging Bull, and Taxi Driver.

“Movies touch our hearts and awaken our vision, and change the way we see things. They take us to other places, they open doors and minds. Movies are the memories of our lifetime, we need to keep them alive.” – Martin Scorsese.

Astrology November 16, 2021: Sun Sextiles Pluto

, , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

The Moon is still in enterprising Aries and in her Waxing Gibbous phase, for most of the day, with 93% illumination. Luna will enter slow, deliberate Taurus, later tonight (at 9:18 pm). We also have an extended eclipse in Taurus on Friday. Fascinatingly, the Beaver Full Moon Lunar Eclipse then will be the longest of the century! (It will last 3 hours, 28 minutes, and 23 seconds.) Native Americans reportedly named the first Full Moon of November the Beaver Moon because this is the time beavers would be most active in the preparation for winter. It was also the time to set traps before the swamps froze to ensure a good supply of furs for the winter.

The probing Scorpio Sun’s sextile to transformational Pluto (4:01 pm) today is thought to be an excellent influence for deepening our perspective, often offering us more insight into our own inner workings and the motivations of others. It’s also compatible with renovation projects. It can additionally be a boon for research matters or investigations, including helping to solve or crack old mysteries. Kind of an interesting tie-in here, too, with this aspect, is a story on Alzheimer’s that is trending on Twitter this morning. The Telegraph is reporting: “A vaccine against Alzheimer’s disease could be on the horizon after scientists carried out successful trials in animals. Researchers from the US and Germany were able to reverse memory loss in mice and are keen to move quickly to human trials.” It is estimated that 1 in 9 people age 65 and older have the disease.

*All times EST

Born On This Day: African-American musician, teacher, and bandleader W.C. Handy, in 1873, in Florence, Alabama. He referred to himself as “Father of the Blues.” Handy was one of the most influential songwriters in the United States. He did not create the blues genre but was the first to publish music in the blues form (Delta blues), thereby taking the blues from a regional music style with a limited audience to a new level of popularity. (Wikipedia) Handy once mused: “Life is like a trumpet. If you don’t put anything into it, you don’t get anything out.”

Astrology November 15, 2021: Venus Squares Chiron Rx, Sun Squares Jupiter

Tags

, , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

Kind of a schizophrenic Monday:

The Venus in Capricorn square to Chiron retrograde in Aries (3:07 am) could foment some sense of inner discontent, insecurity, feelings of unworthiness with our relationships, status/position, or money situation. Also, comparing ourselves to others now can be a very prickly path that we don’t really need to embark upon. Better to set our sights on what is achievable and why we deserve to have what we want.

The transformative Sun in Scorpio and expansive Jupiter in innovative Aquarius – the two biggest heavenly bodies in our solar system – are also squaring off today (2:58 pm). Grand gestures, colossal or bigger than expected outcomes/results, gargantuan opportunities/circumstances are all possibly part of the eclectic mix now, along with, no doubt, an over-abundance of bloated egos. While it’s easier to go overboard with things now, there may very well be some reason for celebration as new ways to get ahead may emerge on the titillating horizon. Just remember: moderation is key and that more doesn’t always translate into our being merrier or more satisfied (unless, of course, it has something to do with George Clooney!) Sometimes having more of something can actually translate into greater constraints on our time or our freedom, which can end up leaving us feeling worn out or depleted. So, the bottom line here today is to know and respect our limits. Or put another way, leave something in the buffet bar for others!

Interestingly, President Biden and President Xi of China are also planning on meeting virtually today on this splashy Sun-Jupiter day. Biden is also supposed to sign his $1 trillion infrastructure package into law at a ceremony at the White House.

*All times EST

Born On This Day: German-born British astronomer Sir William Herschel in 1738 (d. in 1822). In his spare time, Herschel discovered the planet Uranus (the first planet discovered since antiquity), hypothesized that nebulae are composed of stars, and developed a theory of stellar evolution. He also was the founder of sidereal astronomy for the systematic observation of the stars and nebulae beyond the solar system. He was knighted in 1816. Needless to say, he set a sky-high bar for all of us!

“I have looked further into space than ever human being did before me. I have observed stars of which the light, it can be proved, must take two million years to reach the earth.” 

Back down to earth, hope it’s a good one! Please be safe and well.
