Happy Birthday to me! One of the really cool things you can do with astrology is generate a chart known as a Solar Return. This could be called your Birthday Chart! It is a snapshot of the sky at the moment the sun returns to the exact spot it was at the moment of your birth, hence the name Solar Return. Solar Returns are used as a forecasting tool to take a look at the year head. What's in store this year? The Solar Return will help us see what the main themes you are dealing with this year will be!
In honor of my own Solar Return I am giving away 3 short readings. These can be your choice of a natal chart reading, a solar return reading, or a current transit reading. The readings will be about a half hour in length and can be done by skype, phone or email, your choice. To be entered in the contest please put a comment in either my blog or on my Facebook post containing this contest. Good luck! I am looking forward to this! I will choose the winners at random once I have the entries. Winners to be announced on Friday, February 17!
As far is the astrology for today … there is not a lot that is remarkable in the daily chart … which is not the same case as in my solar return chart, as we look at daily energy different than in a solar return chart. Today is actually a good day for star gazing. We have Venus and Mars in the western sky after sunset. Venus is by far the brightest thing in the sky right now, at least until the moon rises which is after Venus sets. Mars is must less bright but recognizable from it's red color and it's current proximity to Venus. Find Venus and the look a little up and to the left to find Mars. The other thing to see tonight is much later, in the early morning hours before sunrise. At this time we can see the moon conjunct Jupiter, with the fixed star Spica nearby. If you astrology sometimes it is nice to change things up and look at the actual planets, moon and stars in the sky instead of just consider them conceptually. This aids up in getting back to our roots, so to speak. And the preponderance of highly visible phenomena can be interpreted to mean that this is a very strong time we are living in, the time being now.
