The Daily Astro for March 5, 2012
Venus leaves Aries for Taurus at 5:25 AM EST, where she’s more at home and feels like settling down with some chocolates on a nice velvet divan. The Moon is in another fixed sign, Leo, so today is a day to feel luxurious in whatever we do,and by that I mean being comfortable in our own skin and feeling confident that we have what it takes to do what we need to get done. Take time to enjoy the pleasures of the senses and the natural world. Mercury in Aries joins Uranus at 6:35 AM EST, shaking things up and speeding our thought processes along. Moon parallels to Jupiter and Venus buoy our spirits and make us feel we can accomplish just about anything. Take a break after 10:30 PM EST: watch a movie,meditate, soak in the tub; let yourself relax and unwind.
Sabian Symbol for today’s Sun: “The flow of inspiration .”
Kozminsky Symbol for today’s Sun: “ A hawk with outspread wings standing on a trumpet. ”
The Keyword for the Sabian Symbol is “Ingenuity” and for the for the Kozminsky Symbol is“Renown”.
Both Symbols invoke the idea of the higher self, of “announcing yourself”, of using inspiration to open up to the larger world. Both also convey the image of soaring high into the abstract realms of thought and spirituality (the “bird’s eye view”) and the necessity to use that spark of energy to jumpstart things into motion. It’s about seeing the broader picture and taking that initial leap of faith.

Tarot Enhancer/Antidote: 10 of Wands/Temperance
Both of these cards are very Sagittarian in nature. Finding balance; knowing what to put down when we’ve taken on too much; not getting lost in details but seeing the overarching plan; reaching forward to the future with hope after being “tempered” in a trial by fire.
