Daily Cosmic Calendar for Friday, February 21

Mysteries, secrets, the odd and unusual are all seemingly up for grabs on this strange day in February. From the straightforward and easy-to-understand department, primary partnerships gain an early advantage — courtesy of Juno forming an inspirational, 72-degree rapport with Pluto (9:14AM) followed by a supportive, 60-degree sextile between the Moon in Scorpio and Venus in Capricorn (10:05AM). It is shortly thereafter that feathers begin being ruffled as the Moon parallels Saturn (11:08AM) and Venus (2:09PM) while the monthly Moon-Saturn conjunction happens just two minutes later (2:11PM). The lunar orb making a double-contact with Saturn indicates the need to slow down in business and professional matters.  Further caution is recommended because the Moon-Saturn union at 2:11PM begins a 12-hour void lunar twilight zone that lasts until 2:13AM on Saturday when the Moon enters fiery Sagittarius. Of course — as mentioned in this calendar over many decades — it is much better to be finishing old projects during a void-of-course Moon cycle than launching new ventures.  In addition, the Sun parallels Neptune (3:34PM) — a prelude to their zodiacal rendezvous coming up on Sunday. A Sun-Neptune parallel can be just as powerful as a conjunction — placing an emphasis on working imaginatively in the realms of film, photography, the graphic arts, music and dance. It is wise to be in synch with your spiritual studies. The shadow side of this celestial encounter can mean a temporary rise in confusion and chaos — especially on emotional levels.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for October 25th

The good cosmic news that arrived on terra firma yesterday still carries a positive wallop today. The Grand Triangle in water signs that aided your emotional and psychic sensitivity on Thursday remains strong this morning due to the Moon in Cancer forming a flowing trine of 120-degrees to Mercury in Scorpio (7:18AM). Enjoy literary and educational adventures to the hilt — particularly as the monthly Moon-Jupiter union in Cancer (1:32PM) acts as a sturdy backup to the harmonious tie between the Moon and Mercury.  Tune into your confident and optimistic mind-set to gain a decisive edge over erstwhile competitors in business or professional affairs. However, the Moon-Jupiter conjunction (1:32PM) begins a 19+ hour void-of-course lunar limbo time-span that lasts until 9:13AM tomorrow.  Even though the Moon’s energy is hampered somewhat, your creative imagination is activated as one of two, annual Sun-Neptune trines clocks in at 3:42PM. Improvise in a favorite artistic medium for a change of pace. Show off your burgeoning skills on the photography, film or music fronts. Learn more about the merits of affirmations, visualization exercises, yoga, sacred dance and meditation. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for October 22nd

Just after the potent Full Moon of October 18 — with the Sun and Moon on opposite sides of the Earth — Mars in Virgo and Neptune in Pisces also made their first polarity across the zodiac in about 2 years. Strong, challenging aspects between the red planet and the planet of dreams and visions can equate with a rising tide of confusion and chaos within humanity.  It may have seemed as through the fracas between Mars and Neptune was a done deal a couple of days ago, but now the Sun intervenes by forming a parallel to Neptune (12:51AM) and a contra-parallel to Mars (10:58AM). Because the Sun is not just the largest celestial body in our solar system, but the only radiant, light-emitting celestial source, today’s Sun-Neptune and Sun-Mars encounters can re-energize the psychic tensions that pervaded global societies and cultures worldwide. Trying to force decisions, sign papers or deal with legal matters under the aegis of Sun-Mars-Neptune discord, along with the start of the recent Mercury retrograde cycle, is taboo.  Adding more uncertainty to the mix is the monthly Moon-Venus opposition from Gemini to Sagittarius (5:36PM) — beginning a 27-hour void-of-course Moon cycle that lasts until 8:37PM tomorrow night. Plus, the Sun shifts from airy Libra to watery Scorpio (11:11PM) while — waiting in the wings — is a Mars-Neptune contra-parallel (3:37AM tomorrow) that is similar to a polarity in the zodiac. Under these illusory and provocative circumstances, it is wise to keep a low profile across the board. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for August 26

[All times are calculated for the Pacific Daylight Zone. If you are living in a different time zone, add or subtract the necessary hours so that any timed alignment will be exact where you live.]  This day is as puzzling and disturbing as yesterday. Juno square to Saturn (5:32AM) is not a friend when it comes to creating harmonious, respectful relationships. You may want to slow down regarding holistic healing matters as Venus makes an off-kilter, 150-degree link to Chiron (9:14AM).  If shocks and surprises suddenly show up in the midst of one or more key partnerships, then you are responding to the annual Venus-Uranus opposition (10:57AM). Be pragmatic and sensible when it comes to dealing with loved ones and important friendships.  In the meantime, the cosmic confusion machine is deftly at work later on during the annual Sun-Neptune opposition (8:44PM) and a Mercury-Neptune contra-parallel (11:14PM). If you remember, it was only yesterday that Mercury opposed Neptune. Now the Sun is adding to the potential haziness and psychic cloud cover.  Of course, it is always possible to tweak these aspects in the direction of creating psychic sensitivity and utilizing your higher, creative imagination. Nevertheless, most people become more ensnared by the deceptions and illusions woven by fascinating, addiction-generating Neptune than by the enlightenment that this planet also emanates if you are living on a more exalted level of human spirituality.  Try to utilize a frictional, 45-degree tie between Mercury and Pallas (7:08PM) toward solving some of your current problems.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for November 21

Some Scorpio trickery is at play today as the Sun leaves this potent eighth sign of the zodiac for fiery Sagittarius (1:51PM PST) while Venus changes affiliation from airy Libra to watery Scorpio (5:21PM PST). It is due to the earlier six-week retrograde cycle by Venus in May-June of 2012 that Venus is still lingering some 30 degrees behind the Sun in the zodiac. That 30-degree distance right now creates the strange phenomenon of the Sun leaving Scorpio while Venus receives the red-carpet treatment by the same sign.  All this cosmic horse-trading happens under the sensitive, emotional and psychic environment provided by Pisces Moon. If your moods are swinging wildly more today than recently, chalk it up to the Solar and Venusian shifts — amplified by the start of a new, lengthy void lunar cycle at 10:33PM PST that lasts until 5:13PM PST tomorrow.  Plus — to add insult to injury, the Sun squares Neptune (11:12PM PST) during the void limbo cycle. Only two Sun-Neptune face-offs like this happen in a calendar year and both of them have shadow dimensions that can spread confusion and chaos like a virus.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for August 23

Hold Everything! The first main aspect today is excellent as the Moon in Scorpio makes a flowing trine of 120-degrees to Venus in Cancer (2:35AM PDT). In the couple of hours just before this alignment becomes precise, you can move ahead on the romantic front. But when the aspect becomes exact, it also starts a void lunar uncertainty zone that continues until 3:51AM PDT tomorrow. Finishing odd and ends is one way to accomplish several tasks today, but don’t be in haste to launch bold, new objectives.  Mars entering Scorpio (8:25AM PDT) is certainly going to act like a prod to push you into being a better detective, researcher and investigator. However, the old saying of look before you leap is remarkably apt right now. Strive to empower your key partnerships this evening when the Moon makes its monthly union with Juno (7:21PM PDT). Be more fashion-conscious and consider new decorating schemes for a favorite room at your residence. Let your productivity quotient rise in earnest — thanks to a Venus-Ceres parallel (8:43PM PDT).  Take it easy in affairs of the heart in the shift from Thursday night to Friday morning since the Moon is contra-parallel to Venus (11:59PM PDT) while the annual Sun-Neptune opposition is on the verge of manifesting tomorrow morning at 5:33AM PDT. This is the wrong evening to throw your weight around with a loved one when you should be more accommodating, tender and sincere.
