The Daily Astro for February 7, 2012
There’s a lot going on today! The Sun joins Mercury in Aquarius, Saturn stations in Libra and starts to move retrograde, Venus makes a stress aspect to ol’ Saturn, Venus nears the end of its stay in Pisces and gets ready to dash into Aries, the Moon aspects Jupiter, and of course today is also the day of the Full Moon at 4:54 PM EST– which highlights 19 degrees of Leo and Aquarius. The key today is to keep the big picture in mind and broaden our perspective. Relationships may be tested or strained (with Saturn involved, it’s Karma Time), and people may be too emotional or self-absorbed to listen or respond appropriately-just don’t take things personally. The Leo Full Moon can shine a light on our ability to open our hearts, to be brave and stand up for ourselves and others and to be a spokesperson for those who need our assistance. Whenever we’re dealing with opposing signs (Sun in Aquarius, Moon in Leo), the key is to find a balance between the two–it may take some adjusting, as we can overdo it in one direction or the other at first. We need to incorporate both sides of the equation and then synthesize the two to make things work properly.
Sabian Symbol for today’s Sun: “A forest fire quenched.”
Kozminsky Symbol for today’s Sun: “Setting sun shining on a waterfall, giving it the appearance of golden water.”
The Sabian Symbol keyword is “Concern” and the Kozminsky Symbol keyword is “Proclaiming”.
Both symbols feature or imply water–in the Sabian Symbol, a forest fire is quenched with water, and the Kozminsky Symbol highlights a golden waterfall. If we see water as symbolic of the flowing nature of the emotions and our unconscious, we can visualize both of these as knowing what to do on an instinctive level to improve or “save” a situation or being able to touch or reach others with speech that highlights the emotional content held within the words.
