Astrological Almanac for Wednesday, February 10, 2021

See yesterday for details on this morning’s Mercury-Mars square, exact at 7:15 am. Its influence will continue to be felt strongly through at least the rest of today. The Moon makes a series of aspects today: conjoining Saturn while squaring Uranus this morning; conjoining Venus and Jupiter this evening, and then conjoining Mercury while squaring Mars overnight. The morning then is a bit of a struggle between keeping control over impulses and making rational decisions, on the one hand, while on the other, being challenged (perhaps by others) on issues of impulsivity, rebellion, and freedom. The afternoon softens considerably with Read more…

Astrological Almanac for Tuesday, February 9, 2021

Tomorrow morning’s exact Mercury retrograde square to Mars is already felt, and will grow stronger through the day. Those with planets in mid-fixed signs (Aquarius, Taurus, Scorpio, Leo) will likely experience (even more than others) challenges in communication and even arguments and confrontation. This could be a couple of days of impulsivity, and energy is prone to “leak” everywhere. Discerning the truth (even perhaps, in yourself) could be difficult right now. It’s also likely to be a couple of the most challenging days in this Mercury retrograde cycle, and beyond relational issues, give yourself extra time for technology problems and Read more…

Astrological Almanac for Monday, February 8, 2021

Mercury retrogrades back across the Sun today, exact at mid-morning. The light of the Sun blots out any influence that poor Mercury may have at this point, and it may be extra challenging for those with planets in fixed signs (Aquarius, and to a lesser extent Leo, Scorpio, and Taurus). Tonight the Moon works with Mars to boost our energy levels in the second half of the day. But given Mars’ placement in Taurus and the Mercury-Sun conjunction, beware accidents, and double check before taking any physical risks. #dailystars #dailyastro #astrology #wheresthemoon

Astrological Almanac for Sunday, February 7, 2021

It’s a bit of a quieter day, as the Moon makes no exact aspects. She enters Capricorn at 3:51pm, bringing our gaze inward and perhaps inviting us to judge how we fit in with society. In Capricorn, she can be judgmental though, so don’t delve too deeply right now. Overnight, she’ll trine Uranus, inspiring some ways in which we might break out of the societal expectations that may be keeping us down. The retrograde Mercury will conjoin the Sun tomorrow morning, and for much of the day, it may be the most challenging part of the retrograde, since any ability Read more…

Astrological Almanac for Saturday, February 6, 2021

Tonight Venus changes her tune from yesterday and squares Uranus, bringing a lot of social excitement and possible reversal of relationship issues that aren’t nailed down by solid commitment and loyalty. We may see unusual displays of emotion, and out-of-the-box artistic activity. The Moon works well with Jupiter this morning to provide a positive matrix for most things. And then she flows nicely with the Sun this evening. Luna will square Neptune tonight though, bringing some discomfort about how we see ourselves fitting in and how we feel about that. #dailystars #dailyastro #astrology #wheresthemoon
