The Daily Astro for July 27, 2012
The Moon is in Scorpio today. The Moon is also void all day (it enters Sagittarius at 1:18 AM tomorrow). There aren’t any major aspects today, so be a Voidoid and use this void-Scorpio-Moon energy to “disappear” for a while or go deep and explore interior terrain, rather than trying to make a big noise in the outer world. You might be surprised at the revelations you unearth in this “out of time/out of sync” period. Minor aspects today indicate we’re not sure it’s really worth it to extend ourselves, anyway. We’d like people to respect our feelings but they may not be on the same wavelength. Moon/Pluto aspects reinforce the Scorpio theme (Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio) so we may need to learn to deal with our intense reactions or channel that energy towards transformation rather than letting it consume us. There’s a lot bubbling under the surface today! Things may not go as expected in the afternoon, so be ready to change plans quickly if needed.
Sabian Symbol for today’s Sun: “ Rock formations at the edge of a precipice. ”
Kozminsky Symbol for today’s Sun: “A lawyer placing a document before a client, who signs it. His eyes are bandaged.”
The Keyword for the Sabian Symbol is “Endurance ”.
The Keyword for the Kozminsky Symbol is “Complications ”.
The Kozminsky Symbol certainly reflects the Scorpio/Pluto themes today. There’s a need to look under the surface to see what’s really going on. There’s something we might not see (or maybe we don’t want to see it–the bandaged eyes could reflect either of these meanings), and it’s not wise to enter into contracts without being fully informed. There are issues related to trust and who we can trust. We can unnecessarily complicate our lives by poor preparation and inattention to details or by giving over our power to unscrupulous types. The Sabian shows a person in a potentially hazardous situation, on a precipice. Care must be taken to get out of the situation. It’s a challenge which can take us to a new level of competence if we act wisely, or lead to disaster if we’re not careful. We may have to stop and reassess before moving on, to take some time to reflect (as noted above, it’s that kind of day today). After contemplating the astrological aspects and the Symbols, it seems that today is a real “choice point” kind of day. We’re in the eye of a hurricane, a time of quiet in the midst of furious activity. We know the storm will resume, but right now everything’s perfectly still and in a kind of “holding pattern”, enabling us to reflect and determine our next move.

Tarot Enhancer/Antidote: King of Wands/Star
“Healing Guide”. This combination tells us that we’ve been through the worst, and if we’re open to guidance, we can heal our past. It feels to me like a Guide spirit coming through to offer hope and inspiration. This fire/air combination can clear out the cobwebs that have gathered around us and pushes us forward into the future. The Star is associated with Aquarius, whose ruler is Uranus. Uranus is currently in the fire sign Aries (Wands are fire cards), so we’re urged to step up and assert ourselves, to claim our turf as unique and inspired beings and let the creative ingenuity flow! Channel that restless feeling –it may lead you to a future beyond your wildest imaginings.
