The Daily Astro for February 1, 2012
Mercury in a stress aspect to Mars early in the day can fire us up, triggering aggressive verbal ballet and entangling us in possibly heated arguments. The Moon in stressful aspect to Saturn and Neptune in the early afternoon casts a foggy pall; we can feel somewhat fearful or restricted by partners or by the groups or associations we’re involved with. The Moon zooms into Gemini at 2:14 PM EST and sextiles Uranus, lightening the mood (and maybe our tongue as well, which as you may have noted could really get us into some scrapes today). This evening, Venus in Pisces square Mars in Virgo and the Moon in Gemini square Chiron in Pisces can make it all too easy for people to face off, pick each other apart, or spend too much time unearthing hurtful memories and deliberately pushing their partner’s buttons. People can be oversensitive and prone to teary-eyed declarations; if you see this happening, take a time out–back off and save the discussion for another day.
Sabian Symbol for today’s Sun: “ A barometer.”
Kozminsky Symbol for today’s Sun: “A veiled figure, seated on a rock, pointing to a radiated human eye in mid-air.”
Both of these symbols point to the idea of prediction, prophecy and sensing the future. Both focus on the idea of knowing what is to come. For the Kozminsky Symbols, the key word is “Discernment” and for the Sabian Symbols it is “ Indication”. Both focus on the idea of being able to read the signs and portents and act accordingly, and of being so in tune with the environment that you pick up on things before they happen and you have the ability to know what is important, what is a sign, and what is merely temporary static in the airwaves.
