Astrology of February 6th, 2017: Luck and Limitations

In the early morning hours today the Moon in Gemini trined the Sun in Aquarius, creating a state of flow and harmony between our unconscious and conscious awareness to start the day, increasing our desire for knowledge and our interest in the world around us, as well as heightening our social awareness.  A few hours later the Moon in Gemini sextiled Uranus in Aries, likely adding to the quick pace of the morning for those of us on diurnal schedules.  Since this was a harmonious aspect, it’s not likely to have rushed beyond our capabilities to enjoyable handle, and definitely gave those who could take advantage of the increased emphasis on self-direction an opportunity to shine.  

The Moon in Gemini squared Chiron in Pisces toward mid-day, which may have ended up making some of us feel a bit abraded and frustrated or hurt, typically as a result of communication missteps resulting from failed attempts at connection, and those of us with ongoing health problems could have found ourselves on the wrong end of the Moon in Gemini’s frenetic pace, feeling burnt out and exhausted, and unable to keep up.

This is followed by the Moon in Gemini trine Jupiter in Libra, giving our emotions an expansive, social tone, so for those of us who managed to successfully navigate through that patch of burn out, this aspect likely has helped us to carry forward the active tone of the morning.  Even for those to whom the Moon/Chiron square proved to be more of a stumbling block, the Moon/Jupiter trine is likely to have been a blessing in getting us back on the horse for the afternoon, helping us to understand instinctively how our thoughts and communication enhance or detract from our good fortune in life, and giving us an opportunity to magnify our own optimism and with it our statistical probability of having a better life.  People who are “lucky” typically don’t have more good experiences than others – they just have more experiences, period.  They get out and try more, are more curious and interested in life (qualities that Gemini exercises in spades), and Jupiter today was happy to help encourage us in that direction.

This was followed by Mercury in Capricorn sextiling Black Moon Lilith in Scorpio in the early afternoon, helping us to extend our communication to normally hidden or taboo subjects without incurring negative consequences to our goals and reputations in the process, and potentially even enhancing them.  This made this afternoon a great time for ferreting out secrets that could be useful to us, though given the continuing proximity of Pluto in Capricorn it would be best if the use we make of this knowledge benefits more people than just ourselves.

The Moon in Gemini opposing Saturn in Sagittarius this afternoon may put a damper on things, increasing our feelings of limitation and insecurity, giving heightened prominence to the obstacles in our way, particularly when it comes to communication, learning, and social interactions.  Of course, we may also take these things more seriously and apply more discipline in these areas, and if we do, we will become aware of the need to balance our desire to learn and communicate with the need to pace ourselves and exercise caution in what we do with the information we obtain.  Since this aspect begins a lunar void-of-course period, it makes sense to fall back on our routines this afternoon and evening, and not begin any bold new ventures at this time.  This can also be a good time to have a few friends over, especially the kind who don’t mind a little seriousness and can help us ease our frustrations with some good camaraderie.

Later tonight the Moon enters watery Cancer, encouraging us to cozy up at home with family and friends, and give ourselves the time and space that we need to process our changing moods.  The Moon rules Cancer, so our emotions, instincts, and unconscious awareness are in their place of power tonight.  This is a good night for dreaming, so those of us who like to work with dream knowledge should be sure to keep something by our beds to write down what we remember in the morning.  This lunar placement makes house and home priorities tonight and over the next couple of days, and hones our business sense and intuitions, so being conscious of questions relating to these areas before going to bed tonight is likely to yield new insights.

(All aspect times are calculated for Pacific Standard Time.  I tend to speak in broad terms when I reference time on this blog, referring to time-frames like “morning” or “afternoon” rather than specific times, since I still have a lot of friends on the East Coast who read these posts and I’d like them to be pertinent to those friends as well as folks here on the West Coast.  Readers from further abroad will need to adjust time-frames accordingly.)
