The Daily Astro for February 26, 2012
The Moon moseys on over into Taurus at 9:29 AM EST so things may slow down, especially since the Moon also opposes Saturn. We might find ourselves or others being obstinate or refusing to budge due to fear or long-standing habit patterns. The Moon also contacts Neptune and Chiron in Pisces, so it could just be that we’re being hit on our sore spots and don’t want to delve deeper, but there’s support if we take the plunge. A Moon/Jupiter connection can buoy our spirits late this evening, and Venus parallel Mars up heats up the relationship axis, if we don’t fall prey to discord and bitchiness (Venus conjunct the asteroid Eris). With these aspects, I wonder if “big” stories about people overcoming huge hurdles, and obstacles ( romantic and otherwise), will be major winners at tonight’s Academy Awards ceremony. I’m betting on “The Help” to win many awards tonight! (Take a gander at the Sabian and Kozminsky Symbols–the theme of being in bondage with an urge towards freedom is associated with the degree of today’s Sun placement.)
Sabian Symbol for today’s Sun: “A girl blowing a bugle .”
Kozminsky Symbol for today’s Sun: “ A slave-merchant selling a beautiful woman in an Eastern market-place.”
The Keyword for today’s Sabian Symbol is “ Practice ” and for the Kozminsky Symbol the Keyword is “Responsibilities ”.
Merging these two Symbols, brings to mind the idea that we’ve just been summoned loud and clear to break through from bondage, from whatever keeps us chained and bound. It’s a call from the soul (the figure in each Symbol is a girl or woman) to move beyond restrictions towards our destiny. It’s also a clue that it’s time to be ready to make “the big escape. We have to take responsibility for our own lives and not forfeit ourselves to the control of others–we have to blaze our own trail and set ourselves free.

We probably don’t want to hear something that might wake us up from our pretty reveries or romantic illusions/delusions, but forces are stirring; decisions need to be made.
