The Daily Astro for June 13, 2012
The Moon remains in Aries today, as an early-day Sun/Saturn trine helps us focus our thoughts and make some progress. Don’t forget to apply that Moon in Aries enthusiasm to your daily routine or projects and you’ll have made a good start. The Moon/Saturn opposition later this evening means the day opens and closes with Saturn aspects, so this may be a day for serious tasks or enterprises, so use the energy to build towards something rather than falling into gloom-‘n-doom, and you’ll be fine.. After noon (EDT) and through about 11:00 PM, a series of aspects can bring out latent anger, insecurity or finger-pointing behavior; keep focused and try not to take things personally if you confront weird behavior or acting out. A Sun/Moon sextile at 11:09PM EST ends the day’s aspects: take a break, talk with friends or loved ones; watch a cheerful show or movie and ease pleasantly into the night.
Sabian Symbol for today’s Sun: “Three fledglings in a nest high in a tree.”
Kozminsky Symbol for today’s Sun: “A triangular-shaped hill. On one side the sun is shining on pleasant paths and beautiful foliage—the other side is dark and gloomy.”
The Sabian Symbol keyword is “Elevation”.
The Kozminsky Symbol keyword is “Trial”.
Today’s Kozminsky Symbol reflects the double Sun/Saturn and Moon/Saturn aspects today. We can use energy in a variety of ways, seeing things as positive or negative, choosing the dark path or the light one, or realizing that we must experience all things in life and continue along the way to reach the hill (triangular, like the three fledglings in the next, bringing in the theme of introducing a “third way” or possible solution to seeing things in either/or terms). The young birds have a panoramic view of things, and they’re all potential, getting ready to fly, even if they have to try many times before they’re airborne. Use today’s Moon in Aries and its aspects to be brave and prepare for lift-off!

Tarot Enhancer/Antidote: 3 of Wands/Page of Pentacles
“Pre-flight”. Today’s cards speak of beginning phases, of realizing our ‘mission’ and getting ready to take our show on the road. The 3 of Wands reminds me of the Kozminsky Symbol’s trio of fledglings gathering courage to take that first, exhilarating flight. Spring has sprung; everything is new. They’re birds, it’s in their DNA to fly; it’s their birthright. What’s yours?
