The Daily Astro for May 29, 2012
The Moon is in Virgo today, and squares Venus in Gemini at 1:44 pm EDT, so we may find our minds racing as we try to accommodate everyone and see things from every angle. It may be hard to coordinate things today. Later, the Sun makes stress aspects with heavy-duty planets Saturn and Pluto. These aspects add a serious cast to the day and we may find ourselves in situations where we need to confront issues of self-worth and the need for transformation of beliefs that have been holding us back. But it may also make us squirmly and uncomfortable and can lead to collisions with others who have their own agendas–this is one of those “unstoppable force meets immovable object” days. You’re also going to see people acting out from their shadow side. Focus on building and maintaining your most important relationships and get some work done–the period after 1:44 PM EDT is a good time for putting major effort into a job or project.
Sabian Symbol for today’s Sun: “A quiver filled with arrows. ”
Kozminsky Symbol for today’s Sun: “A hand holding a document on which is a crown and royal seal. ”
The Keyword for the Sabian Symbol is “Preparation”.
The Keyword for the Kozminsky Symbol is “Jurisdiction ”.
Here’s a real Gemini/Sagittarius combo! The Sabian Symbol image of a quiver full of arrows reminds us of Sagittarius the Archer, while the dexterity and skill needed in order to reach the mark falls under Gemini. The “hand with document” image from the Kozminsky Symbols reflects higher powers, specifically a Judge (falling under Jupiter’s dominion–Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius). The two together point to training and effort established in order to meet a goal or continue a quest, which ultimately leads to the establishment of order. In keeping with today’s astrological aspects, the skill, training, and sharp eye (The Sun and Moon today are both in Mercury-ruled signs) find their mark and begin the path to a future goal, while the Sun in aspect with both Saturn and Pluto illustrates the adage “heavy is the head that wears the crown”.

Tarot Enhancer/Antidote: 7 of Wands/6 of Swords
“Riding Off into the Sunset”. We’ve been through a battle, taken the risk, fought the demon(s), and have risen to the challenge (think of the archer from the Sabian Symbol at alert, with bow and arrow close at hand), and now it’s time to move on. We might feel that some outside force is pushing us to move (the Sun in aspect to Pluto and Saturn), but in reality we know deep inside that the hour has arrived. This combination can indicate ending relationships, or removing yourself from situations where you feel besieged. We may leave with sadness, but we know it’s the right thing to do at this time. Higher powers (see the Kozminsky Symbol) are at work and the forces of time, change, and karma move us inexorably forward.
