voidmoonToday, we get an astrological day off because the Moon will spend most of the day void of course in Aquarius.

The void of course Moon is a little tricky because it reflects a period when any activity performed will result to nothing.

Zilch.

Nada.

Nothing comes of the matter.

During this the void of course Moon it is not recommended to sign documents, make firm plans or agreements, or start anything new.

The void of course Moon is a great time to do something where the results are non-consequential.  For example, it is a great time to send in your tax returns because the chances of you being audited is minimized.  This is an opportune time to have difficult conversations where you would like the reaction to be minimal or non-existent. So, if you want to avoid arguments, now would be the time to do so because regardless of the reactions, minimal lasting results will occur.

Be amazing.

Astrology of Valentines DayAstrological Aspects for Valentine’s Day – February 14, 2014

It’s Valentine’s Day – you know, the day that lovers get together and validate the feelings they have in their relationship.  It’s accompanied (often) with boxes of chocolate, flowers, and kisses that begin with “Kay” (as in the jeweler).  Let’s face it, Valentine’s Day is one of the feel good days of the year and even some of the most somber individuals perk up to the magical elixirs of love.

The astrological aspects for Valentine’s Day are rather interesting.  First, we have a Full Moon in the sign of Leo.  Then, later in the evening, a lovely aspect between the life giving Sun and determined and energetic Mars.  Under normal circumstances, this is a lovely set of aspects; however, on Valentine’s Day, we may need to tweak this energy to get the most out of it.

I am sure you wonder why such lovely aspects need modification.  After all, trines are good aren’t they?  Well, the difficulty with the aspects, have to do with their prime motivation rather than the aspect.  These are not aspects of relationship, they are self-oriented aspects which may need to be worked with in order to achieve the lovely V-day results you desire.

So, how do we work with them?

After doing astrological and psychic readings for the past 25 years, I have realized that one of the biggest obstacles to living is complacency.  Slowly, the challenges of living life erode our vision of the future, and we begin to settle with living life the way it is rather than living life the way it can be.  For many (not all), life begins to lose its magic.  This can eventually lead to depression and other health problems later in life.  Since both of the aspects that occur on V-day are aspects of “self”, it is possibly time for us to begin to try to relight the magic that may have faded for our lives, and once again strive to be all we can be.

As you go through your day on Valentine’s Day, pay careful attention to areas of your life that are not completed.  Do you have areas of your life where you want to accomplish things?   Do you want to bring your career to the next level?  Do you want to feel like you have lived a fulfilled life?  Since Mars is involved in this aspect, he gives us the power and ability to create an action plan to accomplish our goals and ambitions.  Through the process of ‘being all you can be’, you will be able to offer a special ingredient to your relationship – yourself.

sun-saturnSun in Aquarius will square Saturn in Scorpio at 2:57 PM EST / 11:57 AM PST

Grab your charts.  If you need a copy of yours, you can get one for free on my website.   If you have any planets around 20-24 degrees of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio or Aquarius then this astrological energy will be of increased significance to you.

Are you feeling discouraged?  Held back?  Denied the life that you want to live?  If so, you are not alone!  We all go through periods of restrictions, obstacles, discouragement, and we feel that we are beating ourselves against the wall hoping that we can get through to the other side.  We all go through it.

Three years ago, I was at a turning point in my life.  The world around me had changed in a way that I could no longer manage myself or my business the way that I had managed it up to that point.  I was at a breaking point, and although I had achieved a lot in my 40 years on the planet, I fell into a despair that ultimately changed my life.  My fears got me to where I was, but I was not going to let them rule me forever.  In the process of this change, I had to get busy with the art of living.

On Tuesday, we have an extremely frustrating aspect — The Sun in Aquarius will square Saturn in Scorpio.  This aspect can be depressive, very difficult to handle, and can lead to enormous frustrations.  You may feel held back by others, by life, or even by your lack of taking personal responsibility.  Your energy may be low and you may fall into the depths of despair.  I am going to be blunt – this aspect is not easy.   However, this energy is necessary for our personal soul growth and evolution.

Rob Hand writes the following in his book, “Planets in Transit”:

“The purpose of discouragement is to reveal weaknesses in your conception of yourself and show where you must work to gain greater confidence in yourself.” (Hand pg. 76)

I found this sentence to be very enlightening.  I have read Hand’s book numerous times as an astrologer or astrological student, it is one of the cornerstone textbooks that any practicing or student astrologer should have on their shelves.  However, I had never looked at discouragement (possibly because I was not ready) in this manner.

Today, we have an opportunity to look at our personal conception of ourselves.  How do you see yourself on the most basic level?  Are you where you want to be in life?  Are your beliefs about yourself accurate or are they based on fears that may be limiting you?  In order to work with Saturn, we must get deep and often get our hands dirty in the darkest corners of our psyche.  In many ways, we are required under this transit to refine ourselves and become more real in order to achieve personal fulfillment.  By going through this inner process we will find our personal authenticity and reclaim our dignity.

Mercury in Aquarius square Saturn in TaurusMercury in Aquarius will square Saturn in Scorpio at 6:56 AM EST / 3:56 AM PST

Grab your charts.  If you need a copy of yours, you can get one for free at my website.   If you have any planets around 18-22 degrees of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio or Aquarius then this astrological energy will be of increased significance to you.

This week, Kabbalistically, we are in the portion of the Torah called ‘mishpatim’.  This is one of the most predominant weekly portions amongst Kabbalistic scholars because the lesson is about slavery and the laws of cause and effect.   The word ‘mishpatim’ means ordinances.  In essence, it is about the laws that govern the universe.  The insight of this particular portion is the realization that there are two realities – one reality being slavery to the material world and our emotions and the other reality being spirituality and our connection to the light.  So, we are given an opportunity this week to choose whether we are slaves or spiritually free.

Yesterday, I wrote at length about aspects weaving into one another. Our current set of aspects began with the Venus – Mars square that occurred earlier in the month and has continued until we finally arrived at today’s aspect which is Mercury square Saturn.  Venus – Mars brought to the surface problem areas in our relationships, Mercury sextile Uranus and Mercury trine Mars provided us with the insight to change our situation combined with the action to resolve our difficulties. However, Mercury square Saturn can often lead us to slipping back into our old behavioral patterns (often without realizing it) because they are familiar and easy.

How many times have you begun a new course or decided to behave in a different way or decided that a particular way someone was behaving was unacceptable?  How many times have you created boundaries in your life only to slip back into old patterns a few days later?  Although it may feel easier at the time, usually we feel guilty when the same problems begin to occur again in our lives.  Mercury square Saturn is a test of whether or not we have the courage of our convictions.  This is a very challenging aspect because Mercury rules the mind and Saturn rules limitations, and when the two get together one can often feel depressed, at odds with themselves, deeply conflicted, and can have great difficulty expressing themselves to others.  This can lead us to seek solace of our past behavior patterns.  This can be extremely problematic and can often lead us from a place of “freedom” back into the fettered clutches of slavery.
