The Daily Astro for February 21, 2012
Yesterday was Presidents’ Day, so I took a day off from The Daily Astro.
Today features the New Moon at 3 degrees of Pisces. There are also a slew of aspects today, so we may feel ourselves pulled in many different directions. This New Moon in Pisces aligns with Neptune (ruler of Pisces) and Chiron, so we may feel as though our “dark side” is being activated, or we’re purging ourselves of the past as the Moon moves into its New Moon phase. The last aspect before midnight (EST) aligns the Moon with Jupiter, providing inspiration and spiritual support, and the Moon’s trine to Saturn can help ground some of today’s swirling energy. It’s a good day if you don’t push too hard–take a break, take a nap, sit and daydream a bit, meditate, work on healing, see a movie, create something, just BE. After you do that, think about ways to incorporate what you’ve felt and learned into your daily life and work from today forward.
Sabian Symbol for today’s Sun: “ A petrified forest .”
Kozminsky Symbol for today’s Sun: “ The deck of a trawler on which are quantities of fish. It is night, a small cottage is on fire on the land, and this, with the shore lights, is reflected in the water.”
Both Symbols allude to what is deep, dark, hidden, and elemental. The path to understanding and to spiritual progress may present some challenges (petrified trees as frozen attitudes; the fire as a warning symbol of being consumed); it’s up to us to be observant, find a way to access the secrets (the trees are ancient and hold keys to the past; the fishing boat finds its path from reflections in the fire that illuminates the depths of the water.)
“The Sabian Symbol keyword is “Survival” and the Kozminsky Symbol keyword is “Secretiveness”.
