February 16

Celebration of Victoria

Victory, called Victoria by the Romans and Nice (Nike) by the Greeks, was a Goddess who was the personification of success or victory. According to her legend she was the daughter of Pallas and Styx and became the patroness of heroes, guiding them to greatness. Revered by the Roman people, she was given an altar in the Senate. This sacred monument became one of the most important symbols of organized Paganism in the Roman Empire and a point of bitter confrontation between the pagans and the Christians in the fourth century A.D. when it was ordered destroyed. The altar was finally abolished

Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for May 14th

The last four New Moons — before the one last night — have all occurred under duress, caused by the conflicts associated with unruly planets. Monday’s Taurus New Moon happened just after Mercury and Mars conducted another skirmish while Saturn attempted to add a dour note to Mercury’s harmony of the spheres. There are at least four sour sky tones that can make today’s melodies sound off-key as Juno forms a frictional, 45-degree tie with Chiron (12:56AM), Pallas makes the same kind of abrasive, 45-degree aspect with Mars (4:01PM), Venus contacts Pallas via an off-kilter, 150-degree liaison (8:31PM), and then the Moon in Taurus makes its monthly opposition to Saturn in Scorpio (8:58PM). While this quartet of naysayers is not nearly as contentious as other four-fold discordant aspects on other days, it could interfere with your ability to utilize the potency of the New Moon to take several giant leaps ahead. Neutralizing the apparent obstacles to forward progress are the monthly Moon-Mercury union in Taurus (7:08AM), the Moon forming a supportive, 60-degree sextile with expansive, optimistic Jupiter (9:57AM), and a splendid, research-promoting trine of 120-degrees between Mercury and Pluto in earth signs (10:31AM). Therefore, despite some of the disagreeable sky patterns occurring throughout the day, you should be able to be a winner when it counts the most and when people are depending on your wise judgment.

Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for Friday, April 4th

Today is not nearly as intense and uncomfortable as any of the last three days, but it is also no pushover and cake walk. The celestial bodies are still messing around and acting uncouth as Mercury forms a contra-parallel with Uranus (2:41AM), Venus forms a frictional, 45-degree tie with Pluto (4:41AM), Mercury makes an off-kilter, 150-degree connection with Pallas (9:27AM) while Mercury makes the same kind of 150-degree connection with Vesta (5:13PM). Mercury,  Pallas, and Vesta are in cahoots — creating what is known as a Finger of God or Yod triangle in the heavens. These kinds of geometric formations always carry a certain amount of unknown energy — although the realms of communication, transportation, and health appear to be involved in the equation. Because Pallas and Vesta are in the mix, problem-solving — especially related to investment planning and safety-security measures — may be uneven or extra difficult. A supportive, 60-degree sextile from the Moon in Gemini to the Sun in Aries (8:58AM) — along with a research-activating, 72-degree contact between Mercury and Pluto (4:58PM) — are the universe’s way of trying to be Mr. Nice Guy for a change of pace. It is to your advantage to look ahead to this weekend when Venus will enter the sign of its exaltation, Pisces, on Saturday while the Moon cozies up to high-minded, King of the Gods Jupiter in their monthly rendezvous on Sunday.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for Monday, Feb. 10th

The dark-of-the-moon phase happens every month just before the lunar orb reunites with its solar companion. There is usually a strong need to complete odds and ends that have been percolating for the last few weeks, but which require an extra oomph to reach the finish line.  From the realm of partnerships comes one solid boost as Venus — even though still retrograde until tomorrow — forms a supportive sextile of 60-degrees to Juno (2:18AM). Don’t allow mental fatigue to interfere with your skillful modes of problem-solving and strategic thinking as the Sun makes a 150-degree tie with Pallas (8:06AM). Be tuned into high-technology and the multi-media during a 60-degree connection from the Moon to Uranus (11:17AM).  The New Moon — energizing 11 degrees of Aquarius — arrives at 1:40PM. Think of this dynamic conjunction as a leaping off point for reaching important creative, business and professional goals. Mercury trine to productivity-enhancing Ceres (4:09PM) and Pallas making an inspirational, 72-degree link with task-oriented Saturn (10:17PM) should be feathers in your cap.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for January 6th

Tune into a mentor’s wise teachings as Mercury makes a constructive sextile to Saturn (12:52AM). The Moon in Pisces enters a void twilight zone at 1:45AM that continues until 11:46AM when the lunar orb arrives in Aries territory.  Pallas at 14 degrees of Virgo makes a station (2:21AM) and shifts from direct to retrograde. All Pallas themes — knowledge and wisdom, problem-solving, strategy sessions, genius, father-daughter relationships, arts like pottery, weaving and needlepoint, city planning, computer programming, mastery in chess and word games, seeing normally invisible patterns and bringing them to life — are emphasized throughout the day. [Pallas remains retrograde until April 8, 2014 when it will once again turn direct at 25 degrees of Leo.]  Expect surprises and unsettled conditions around the time-period when the Moon parallels Uranus (12:49PM). On the other hand, this Moon-Uranus connection can lead to revelations about the future.  Strive to keep your productivity strong later on when Venus squares Ceres (7:43PM). Stop worrying about things you cannot control. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Standard Time.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for December 11th

Solving problems is a special keynote of the early hours — courtesy of a trine between Pallas and Pluto in earth signs (6:09AM). Research projects and strategy sessions receive a green light under this harmonious sky pattern. However, later on, avoid mental fatigue since Mercury moves into a 90-degree square with Pallas (4:43PM).  Developing your leadership credentials is a central theme of the current transit of Aries Moon — a theme that began yesterday when the lunar orb entered the first sign of the zodiac. The evening vibes appear promising as the Moon trines the Sun in fire signs (6:15PM) while Mercury forms a supportive, 60-degree liaison with Vesta (10:01PM). While any harmonious tie between the solar and lunar orbs can be a vitality booster, the Mercury-Vesta link-up points you in the direction of increasing the value of your assets and investments.
