Daily Cosmic Calendar for March 19th

The Moon entering the fixed, water sign of Scorpio (2:14AM) each month points you in the direction of becoming an amateur detective. Don your Sherlock Holmes disguise and solve personal mysteries while ferreting out family secrets. Getting to the bottom of things is a key trait of this segment of the zodiac. Mother Nature beckons in one fashion or another as the Moon embraces the largest asteroid Ceres (3:06AM). Take a good look at your dietary and nutritional needs. Strive to be highly productive in your main fields of expertise.  While much of today reveals a favorable vibration, the insurance, safety, security and investment fronts take a drubbing around the time when the Sun forms an off-kilter, 150-degree tie with Vesta (4:10AM). The good news picks up the pace shortly thereafter as a grand triangle in water signs lifts your spirits. The Moon in Scorpio first trines Mercury and Neptune in Pisces (5:42AM and 1:11PM, respectively) and then moves on to trine Jupiter in Cancer (9:58PM). Tune into the deeper levels of your spiritual awareness by utilizing the electro-magnetic qualities of this potent geometrical form in the heavens.  It is also appropriate to reflect on the last month — as well as the last 12 months — of your life, with the gains and losses, opportunities received and challenges met, as tomorrow sees the Sun entering Aries, a sacred turning point of the calendar year and the first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, February 19th

We try to keep negative feelings to ourselves today, but we may still express them anyhow. The diplomatic Libra Moon reminds us that some things are better left unsaid. Meanwhile, communicator Mercury squares restrictive Saturn, further frustrating our efforts to say what we want. But the Moon hooks up with fiery Mars, pushing us to fight for our needs. The emotional intensity deepens when the Moon slips into passionate Scorpio at 10:32 pm EST.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You are in your power zone, but you might unconsciously try to impose your will onto someone else. Remember that the Moon bumps into your key planet Mars today, sending your emotions into orbit. You’re running on overdrive now, yet those around you may not be as ready for action as you are. Avoid unnecessary arguments by taking the needs of others into consideration before going on the attack. Channel your energy in a positive direction.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

Someone might inadvertently stir up uncomfortable emotions today, perhaps reviving old feelings of unresolved anger. You’re typically a down-to-earth person with a common sense attitude toward life. But you could be mixing up memories from your childhood with current circumstances, making it more difficult now to fix the present situation. Examine your past and then use the lessons learned to positively impact your future.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Others envy the ease with which clever thoughts roll off your tongue. You often can say what you want and be done with it. However, it might be more complicated now to separate your ideas and opinions from your identity. The problem is that if you are fully invested in your perspective, you may have to be more aggressive in your own defense. Just remember that everyone else has valid input to give as well. Keeping your mind open is more important than having the last word.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

It might be tempting to convey your annoyance today by not saying or doing anything at all. Unfortunately, once you choose this passive-aggressive tactic, you may retreat so far back into your shell that no one can establish communication with you. Fight against the tendency to withdraw if you are feeling hurt or resentful. Instead, nurse your wounds by gently expressing your feelings without creating a drama. Others can’t make things right if they don’t know what’s wrong.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

A new wave of restlessness sweeps through your life today, but you may not know how to put your feelings out on the table without upsetting an emotional applecart. Although you respect other people’s perspectives, you might secretly believe that yours is more important. Instead of jumping up on your soapbox to fight your cause, it’s healthier to find more productive ways to burn off your excess energy. Save your sermons for another day.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

There are serious issues stewing in your immediate environment now and it’s to your advantage to minimize the negative energy. You might grow irritated with a friend or family member — and your harsh criticism could make matters worse. Put your ego aside today and everyone will feel better all the way around. Choose your battles wisely; you can catch more flies with honey than vinegar if you try.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Your world is rocking, yet the chaos begins to settle down later in the day. Nevertheless, you might feel one last kick of adrenaline today, so make the most of this frenetic energy. Setting your ideas into motion is essential now. You are drawing power from deep reserves but you must be willing to do the work in order to reap the rewards.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Your personal motivation is very strong now, driving you to accomplish more than expected. Unfortunately, your unspoken need to excel can pose a danger, for you may inadvertently create conflict with others in your singular quest to achieve your current objectives. Keep in mind that your success doesn’t have to come at the expense of anyone else. Even if your ego is telling you otherwise, there is always room for multiple winners.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You’re riding an energetic high even if today’s cosmic weather clouds your ability to clearly convey your feelings. You might believe you can accomplish whatever is necessary; your optimism is waving like a flag in the breeze. Unfortunately, you can’t shake a lingering suspicion that there’s something you’re forgetting now. Give yourself permission to keep turning over recent events, one by one, until you find what you are missing.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

One of your ongoing concerns these days is how you can propel yourself toward your goals without pushing others too hard. Unfortunately, if you’re overly bossy, even your allies tend to back away from you. You are riding an adrenaline rush now, but don’t try to put out this internal fire. Use your moral compass to keep yourself on track while searching for a constructive outlet for your abundant energy.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Your focus is shifting as you become more practical about your long-term goals and your career path. Partnerships at work can deepen, offering you the support you need to make a crucial decision. However, tensions may be stirred if there is discord lurking beneath the surface in a developing relationship. Nevertheless, it helps to get everyone’s feelings out in the open. Compromise isn’t the simplest path to follow, but it is the fastest route to peace and harmony at this time.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

It may not be so easy to just let go of a bad feeling since your emotions run very deep. Don’t look for the fast fix today. Sometimes the real magic in a relationship stems from those differences that make each person unique. Respecting each other’s belief systems sets the stage for building common ground instead of fighting over that which cannot be resolved. When all else fails, let love guide the way.

The Gift and Curse of Natal Astrology

The Gift and Curse of Natal Astrology

Jeff Jawer    Jeff Jawer on the topics of blogs, astrology
 
 
 

There is nothing like a natal chart to describe one’s personality. One calculated for the time, date and place of birth is a deeply rich and textured picture of psyche, soul, potential and problem areas. The great gift of having your personal Astrology Birth Chart done is the way in which the various drives, needs and desires are expressed so beautifully by the Sun, Moon, planets, zodiac signs, houses and aspects. It’s liberating to recognize individual characteristics as appropriate when they differ from family or cultural models. At its best, a natal chart is a passport to oneself and a source of individual freedom.

Yet a birth chart analysis is, like any other system, a double-edged sword. While it provides self-understanding that can be liberating, it also may have the opposite effect of boxing us in a limiting set of beliefs about ourselves. The key to making the most of Astrology is in how you apply this uniquely perceptive tool.

For example, I was born with the Moon in Scorpio, which represents emotional intensity and going to extremes. Learning this helped me put the powerful feelings I’ve always experienced into a meaningful context. It’s the need of a Scorpio Moon person to dive into the depths of him or herself to discover underlying desires and motivations. What previously simply seemed like a character weakness or neurosis finally had a name and a purpose. I’m supposed to be intense and complex, sometimes pushing emotional buttons, my own and others’.

Breaking free from expectations

Names give things power. “Scorpio Moon” gave a name to my feelings, which made sense out of them. Yet it also became a limiting factor, because I wasn’t supposed to have access to the lightness of a Moon in Gemini or the spontaneity of a Moon in Aries. The gift of self-identification, especially an accurate one, must be handled carefully. It is a tool that can be applied constructively and destructively. This is the risk of astrological analysis: that it describes us so well that we may be stuck with that description. There are, fortunately, some remedies for this.

One is to recognize that we all have a Moon and that we all have feelings. This is the primary truth of our human experience. The shades of difference accorded to each Moon sign are meaningful, but they are not the whole story. Rather than stopping with the symbol, whether it’s the Moon in Scorpio, Mars in Libra or any planetary placement, think of these as starting points. The birth chart represents default behavior; the unconscious responses to life that operate when we don’t pay attention or take responsibility for ourselves. Learning that my Moon is in Scorpio is not an excuse for resentment, jealousy or emotional extremism, but a warning signal. I need intensity, yet part of growing as a person is to express it in healthy ways. The zodiac sign that any planet is in is a gateway to its essence, yet beyond that opening lies a much wider range of expression.

Another remedy is to step away from the restrictive self-identification of the birth chart when it’s not serving a useful purpose. Instead of justifying my stubborn thinking because I was born with cerebral Mercury in fixed sign Taurus, I can recognize when I’m caught in a mental rut and make appropriate adjustments. Instead of reinforcing the behavior astrologically, the awareness a birth chart provides can show us how we’re limited by old patterns and habits and need to change them.

Your Astrology is not absolute

Astrology is a brilliant technology that can be used to reinforce negative traits, which makes it less than helpful. However, when we recognize the chart as a model rather than an absolute rule, we have the freedom to choose how we work with it. This is no different than the ways we use traumas to assess our lives. The child of an alcoholic parent can explain certain behavior because of that experience, but the goal is to use this understanding to move beyond, rather than to reinforce the pattern. When self-identification with Astrology or with any other system empowers us, it’s worth using, but when it becomes a barrier to growth, it’s better to let it go until we can apply it in a more constructive way.

Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, February 5th

Life seems a bit tamer after the past few high-energy days, but we quickly relax into the new emotional terrain once the Moon enters laid-back Taurus at 4:46 am EST. We may even be more peaceful with pleasure stemming from simple activities like walking in nature, reading a book or just spending time with friends and family. However, talking about our feelings might lead nowhere as messenger Mercury grinds to a halt and turns retrograde tomorrow.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Although you wish your life was less complicated today, you might have more work to do before you can separate yourself from the noise you have created. Your path may seem clear now, but it still could take quite a bit of determination on your part to reach your destination. Be careful not to slip into denial and fall back into complacency. There are changes that need to be made, so don’t give up the good fight. Your passionate persistence is your secret weapon.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

No matter how much you might want to focus on your feelings, it’s challenging to stop your mind from spinning around in circles today. You are thinking about so many different things and the thoughts continue to fly by, just out of your grasp. Frustration arises if you attempt to make use of your fantastic ideas, but there’s no reason to be overly concerned about productivity for now. Instead, just sit back and enjoy the show.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You don’t want to wait quietly on the sidelines and let something important happen without adding your two cents. In fact, you may be so sure of your convictions today that you are driven to speak your mind whether or not others want to hear your opinion. Keep in mind that you will be better off in the long run if you limit your comments to only the most critical issues. Your words will have more impact if you choose your battles wisely.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Your flexible attitude allows you to temporarily minimize an unresolved issue today. You can easily let go of emotions that were bothering you in return for a bit of spiritual refreshment and social enjoyment. However, you might not be ready to relinquish all your feelings, but at least set them aside for a while without judging anyone too harshly. Spending some quality time with your friends or family is more restorative if your heart is fully open to the experience.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You may be lost in contemplation today, as you Lions drift off into a rather complex dreamscape. However, ignoring the interpersonal dynamics at work is not a wise move since the current situation could be complicated by someone’s unexpressed feelings. As much as you want to escape into your inner world now, you must meet your professional obligations before slipping away to explore your imagination.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You might have already scheduled some fun for yourself today, only to discover that nothing is going to happen quite as you thought. You can still enjoy yourself, but it won’t be without a bit of confusion creeping into your life. Bring yourself back to your center and shrug off the minor inconveniences or you could inadvertently make things worse. Remember the best way to minimize stress and impress others is to keep your sense of humor intact.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You can get all wrapped up in mental gymnastics now, even though your stoicism may prevent you from talking about your worries with others. You feel like you should be more lighthearted today, but there are serious issues that just won’t go away until you deal with them. Even with singular focus, resolution probably won’t come quickly. In the meantime, do something creative with your irritation instead of spreading it to others.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Ironically, you are aware of life’s simplicity and its many complications at the very same time. With the evocative Moon moving through sensible Taurus today, your primary drive is toward experiencing pleasure. Yet, as a Scorpio, you always enjoy delving into a good mystery. Be careful if it appears that someone else can ameliorate your need for complexity, for this is just an illusion. Like it or not, your fate is completely in your own hands.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Returning to the basics isn’t what normally motivates you, but simplification just may be the most critical theme in your life now. You are at a significant intersection today, and taking the on-ramp to the busy freeway might not be your best choice. You could have a very positive influence on your environment, but you must step out of the fast lane and onto the road less traveled so you can create the type of connections you want.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Rethinking your core assumptions or reinventing your image offers the best chances for success today. Since this transformational process may continue for a while yet, it’s wise to review and reevaluate last year’s accomplishments while they are still fresh in your mind. Strive to put closure on as many loose ends as possible over the next few weeks to make plenty of room for your future exciting endeavors.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Inner conflict may stress you out as you begin to reconsider a logical decision you recently made. Unfortunately, your feelings might not fall in line with your rational analysis today as you expected. Thankfully, your dilemma isn’t all that obvious to anyone else; nevertheless, a special person could come to your rescue now. Remain open to receiving good news from a friend or family member, for it can provide just enough hope to settle your angst and nudge you in the right direction.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Your current indecision gets in the way of finalizing your plans. Naturally, you want to do what is best, but your good intentions may go awry today, especially if your expectations are unrealistic. It’s difficult to say no to anything that sounds like fun, even if it isn’t very practical. Instead of needlessly complicating matters even more, rely on a second opinion from someone you trust before making any commitments now that you will later regret.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for February 5th

At 12:00AM — as this day begins — Juno merges with Chiron at 12 degrees of Pisces. Put an emphasis on healing and uplifting primary partnerships that need sustenance and support right now. This may be easier said than done as the Moon parallels Saturn (12:28AM) while Mercury piles on by squaring Saturn (3:57AM) and the Moon then also forms the monthly conjunction with Saturn (5:44AM). Pushing the business envelope in any form is taboo.  The Moon in Scorpio is in void mode starting at 5:56AM and lasting over 13 hours until 7:14PM when the lunar orb enters upbeat, goal-oriented Sagittarius. Anticipate some stormy psychic weather and stubborn human emotions blocking forward progress during the void-of-course lunar cycle.  Once Sagittarius Moon materializes at 7:14PM, focus your gaze on reaching long-sought goals — particularly on the literary, educational and publishing fronts.
