The Daily Astro for June 26, 2012
The Moon enters Libra at 1:15 PM EDT. Themes of cooperation, creativity/artistry, and partnership/relating are highlighted. The Moon sextiles Mercury at 2:40 PM EDT, “greasing the wheels” of communication, enabling us to express ourselves with drama and flair. It’s a special plus if we’re writing or speaking with larger groups or audiences or involved in mass media in any way. Next, the Moon forms an uneasy aspect to Neptune in Pisces (6:31 PM EDT), tossing the veil of confusion over our heads for a bit as we move toward the Moon’s “larger than life” trine with Jupiter (7:10 PM EDT). Using diplomacy and tact, we can deal with a variety of people and situations in a graceful manner and make a positive impression. At 11:30 PM EDT, the Moon squares the Sun in Cancer. This is a First Quarter Square, with a theme of “crisis”, so navigate emotional minefields with the same care you’ve shown today and this day will end on an upbeat note. Very late tonight (2:16 AM EDT), the Moon/Venus trine comes to our emotional rescue–pleasant dreams to all!
Sabian Symbol for today’s Sun: “Game birds feathering their nests .”
Kozminsky Symbol for today’s Sun: “A man spending money lavishly entertaining his friends, a clown hidden behind a curtain laughing at him .”
The Keyword for the Sabian Symbol is “ Meticulousness”.
The Keyword for the Kozminsky Symbol is “Wastefulness”.
The Sabian Symbol coordinates well with the Sun in Cancer (the birds are making themselves a home) and the Moon in Libra (this Symbol signifies group spirit and cooperation/give and take). By working together the birds strengthen their position by dividing the labor and building something useful to take care of their offspring (Cancer). The Kozminsky Symbol shows the negative side of The Sun in Cancer/Moon in Libra combination–the man, wishing to impress his friends, is profligate and isn’t taking proper care of his resources. His fair-weather friends will desert him when the money runs out (even the clown is laughing at him). “Behind the curtain” relates to the Moon/Neptune aspect–he’s not aware of what’s going on around him and may be deceived. By trying so hard to please, he may go overboard (Moon trine Jupiter on the “down side” = excess) and overextend himself.

Tarot Enhancer/Antidote: Ace of Cups/9 of Cups
The Ace of Cups can relate to our home or feeling “at home” (Cancer Sun), and to the beginning of a relationship, the discovery of the ‘other’ (Moon in Libra). With the 9 of Cups, we’re feeling fulfilled and are willing to commit and accept our partners whole-heartedly in the spirit of openness and generosity. There’s a magnanimous feeling to this combination (Moon trine Jupiter) but also a warning not to overindulge. There’s more than a hint of the “too much ain’t enough” philosophy here, so be careful not to waste your love, energy, or resources (as the man in the Kozminsky Symbol is so intent upon doing) and take care not to become obsessed with anyone or anything to the point where it becomes an addiction.
