The Daily Astro for February 13, 2012
The Moon in Scorpio connects with Chiron, Venus and Pluto, so any relationship problems aren’t apt to be swept under the rug—maybe a bit of pre-Valentine’s Day squirmliness breaks out today? Work on transforming your relationships and put effort into really connecting with others on more than a superficial or “me first” level. Mercury trines Saturn—time for serious thought and level-headedness, at least until Mercury enters Pisces at 8:38 PM, which can give us a case of the wild-and-wooly “fuzzies”. Mercury also connects with Neptune in Pisces early AM so all you tarot readers, psychics and intuitive types will be plucking symbols and signs from the either right and left; while others may have vivid dreams or find their sensitivity to the unseen realms is heightened.
Sabian Symbol for today’s Sun: “A butterfly with the right wing more perfectly formed.”
Kozminsky Symbol for today’s Sun: “A victor in a duel with a look of agony breaking his sword over his knee.”
Both symbols emphasize metamorphosis as a key to growth and development and an awareness of our own special abilities and how they should be used. The butterfly in the Kozminsky Symbol has one wing slightly different from the other (the process of change and refinement continues to evolve), while in the Sabian Symbol, the “victor” of a violent act realizes the need to change his motivation and grow past the need for revenge, and destroys the instrument of destruction after realizing the ramifications of his actions.
The Sabian Symbol keyword is “Uniqueness” and the Kozminsky Symbol keyword is “Reaction”.

Enhancer/Antidote: 4 of Swords/7 of Pentacles (This combination made a song title flash into my head: “Lay Down Your Arms” by Marshall Crenshaw.) It’s time to change direction, take a breather from the daily drama, lay down our defenses and get ready for the next opportunity, which will be unexpected and take us in a surprising new direction.
