The Daily Astro for March 1, 2012
The Moon remains in Gemini but squares Mars in Virgo very early this morning. Mercury forms a stress aspect to Saturn today, so people may be a little on the quarrelsome, grumpy side. Sidestep turf wars and petty arguments if you can. Mercury’s getting ready to zoom into Aries but is also preparing for its retrograde, so don’t be surprised if things don’t move as fast as you want them to. Mercury parallels Uranus so we might be on the receiving end of some surprising news or information today. Our minds may be running at warp speed and some will be very inventive. Look to the future.
Sabian Symbol for today’s Sun: “ An examination of initiates.”
Kozminsky Symbol for today’s Sun: “An author with his head in his hands, a rejected manuscript and a lady’s photograph on a table before him. ”
The Keyword for the Sabian Symbol is “Qualification” and for the for the Kozminsky Symbol is “Intricacy”.
Both of these Symbols carry the idea of skills being tested, honed or judged. There’s also an element of learning how to focus our talents and of a judicious use of skills. We may be judged on what we’ve learned or on the products of our learning. We’re being told to get ready, to hone in on what’s important and to express our essential natures. In the Kozminsky Symbol, competing forces may vie for our time and attention and divert our attention in more than one direction. But it’s not a time to give up or give in to despair.

Magician/Sun: Innate skills/talents allow us to express what’s deep in our hearts. We can be known for our abilities and the way we “shine”. Healing from within. The start of a period where we express who we really are. The mind and heart joined together holistically. Creating magic or taking people to a magical place through our vision.
