The Daily Astro for May 14, 2012
I woke up with a headache this morning, maybe I was just anticipating today’s aspects! Early AM EDT, while most were asleep, the Moon, currently in Pisces, made some congenial aspects, and at 4:09 AM EDT Mercury formed a trine with Pluto, sharpening and deepening our mental processes and making us natural detectives. However, later in the day the Sun in Pisces forms stress aspects to both Saturn and Pluto, two of the heavy hitters of the zodiac. Avoid getting into status contests or power/control games with others. We may feel a bit overwhelmed or overloaded and begin to doubt ourselves and our relationships with others (Venus is preparing to go retrograde tomorrow). Remain flexible and don’t box yourself into a corner.
Sabian Symbol for today’s Sun: “A large well-kept public park .”
Kozminsky Symbol for today’s Sun:“A dense column of smoke from which issue flashes of lightning “.
The Keyword for the Sabian Symbol is “Recreation ”, and for the Kozminsky Symbol it’s “Premeditation ”.
The Kozminsky Symbol looks like Pluto and Uranus are throwing a party at the Tower–from destruction, inspiration and new ideas arise. Inherent in the key word, “premeditation” is the idea of planning, that things happen for a reason, and that change is necessary for the world to function in a healthy way. Stasis leads to stagnation. The Sabian Symbol emphasizes the importance of the group in acting together to create things many people can enjoy (public parks). There’s a feel of democracy in action here, of hard work for a common goal, and of adding a touch of beauty and relaxation to the day-to-day environment. (Just read the astrology section above: today’s a day we might need to escape into a relaxing environment for an hour or two!)

Tarot Enhancer/Antidote: Ace of Swords/High Priestess
Two types of intelligence combine! The uniting of the spirit and all things mystical (the Moon is in Pisces today, after all) and the higher mind. New energy is available to refresh the spirit and enlighten the mind. Sudden changes and cutting away of the mist of illusion to reveal the truth. This process isn’t always easy, but is necessary. Be careful not to be overwhelmed by the “chattering mind” and images that are not real yet haunt with nameless fears.
