The Daily Astro for February 2, 2012
Happy Groundhog Day! With the Moon in Gemini in stress aspect to Pluto in Capricorn, the little critter may be somewhat twitchy and suffer from a bout of “performance anxiety” early in the day– just poking his snout out of his den may be a big brave move for him. But once he makes that move, his (and our) day unwinds nicely, as Moon trines Mercury in Aquarius at 9:41am EST, then moves into a trine with the Sun at 5:10 pm EST. With all the emphasis on the Air element (Gemini and Aquarius), it’s a good day for writing, emailing, reading, or just communicating with others, discussing world events, thinking about the future and opening yourself to a broader view of things. Try to avoid overthinking or getting distracted by all those bright shiny objects people may wave in front of you!
Sabian Symbol for today’s Sun: “ A train entering a tunnel.”
Kozminsky Symbol for today’s Sun: “Man writing, with a quill pen in each hand, in front of a flickering oil-lamp. His face betrays anxiety.”
Both of these symbols reflect a need to overcome obstacles in order to attain a goal. The key word for the Sabian Symbol is “Courtesy” and for the Kozminsky Symbol, it’s reflective of “Difficulties”. Both symbols indicate a need to narrow our focus to achieve the task at hand; don’t try to be everywhere at once–diluting your energies at this time will not help and will just make things more complicated and increase the difficulty of achieving our goals.
