The Daily Astro for June 15, 2012
The Moon remains in Taurus today and aspects Venus, Chiron and Mercury as the day progresses. It’s an excellent day to focus on practical matters, finances or investments, creative and artistic enterprises, and tying up loose ends. It’s a great day for gardening, DIY projects, chatting with the neighbors, and taking care of routine tasks. People may be feeling friendly and in a mood to open up about themselves today; conversations could be interesting. The last major aspect today, the Moon in Taurus sextile Mercury in Cancer, may incline us towards an evening out at an arts event (especially one featuring a wine and cheese reception before or after)! If that’s not on the agenda, staying home and communing with family and friends will also prove fulfilling. Enjoy, relax, and make the most of this relatively quiet day.
Sabian Symbol for today’s Sun: “A Man Trimming Palms. ”
Kozminsky Symbol for today’s Sun: “A hand issuing from the heavens holding a great scroll on which is shining a pentagram.”
The Keyword for the Sabian Symbol is “Enhancement ”.
The Keyword for the Kozminsky Symbol is “ Etherealism ”.
Both Symbols relate to today’s Moon in Taurus placement. The man shaping palm trees is engaged in a Venus/Taurus activity–gardening and plant maintenance–which makes the tree look better and also ensures its continued health and vitality. This is a Symbol of knowing what to cut away in order to achieve optimum results and to understand what has value and what can be discarded. It’s a very valuable skill in many areas of life. The Kozminsky Symbol brings a pentagram, which is found on most of the Pentacles cards in the tarot, the suit that relates to manifestation or bringing things into being. The Symbol shows someone with a mission, who will not be diverted–the scroll withe pentagram issues a divine directive. What are we here to do, what are we meant to bring into being? How can we use what we have, marshal our resources (Taurus) to be who we are meant to be?

Tarot Enhancer/Antidote: The Hermit/Judgment
“The Eternal Return”.
Examine deep-rooted tendencies and look for patterns of thought and behavior that influence your life. This is a “karma combo” and can indicate situations and recurrences that relate strongly to past lives and the elder male members of the family. It can also indicate all things “inherited” and whatever deeply-rooted memories and thoughts colonize your mind. Consider how things have played out in your life and what attitudes you might need to let go of in order to move forward. Spend some time alone to get to the root of the matter. Be honest and willing to acknowledge the role you’ve played and what you’ve brought in through your own actions. Major breakthroughs are possible if we’re honest, and like the palm tree pruner in the Kozminsky Symbol, are willing to cut away the dross to retain the essential.
