First Quarter Moon Phase: step out, take action

Moon in Aries/Taurus (11:37 am ET/4:37 pm UT)

Ruling Wisdom Goddess: Matangi

Skill: take a new perspective

Negative Imprint: arrogance, disregard of intuition, conformity, refusing to listen to others, judgmental, missing things, blocking changes

Positive Imprint:  progress, initiation, adjustments, building confidence, originality, self-expression, awakening, support, observing patterns

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: "an old adobe mission" (setting foundations and intentions for the future, inner spiritual retreat)

Today's energy brings in details that enable us to see a bigger picture.  With this, we come into fuller participation with life.

As the details and events of your day unfold, do-overs, interruptions, errors, dropped calls, electronic malfunctions, and loss of data could be encountered.  But these things happen today to help us pick up, process, or re-think important things - things that help us see a bigger picture of ourselves, our lives, our world, our future.  So while these sorts of things seem to set us back or put us behind schedule, they are really advancing a greater cause.  Just having to stop something midstream will re-direct the course of your thinking.  The course of your thinking may have nothing to do with the actual situation that is being halted.  If you experience this today, take a break and let Spirit infuse and guide you.  What wisdom is trying to be revealed to you?

An undercurrent or hint in the energetic today leans toward us finding new ways and doing new things that are a truer representation of who we are.  Things are quite reflective today; there is a linking between the inner and the outer.  How is the inner and outer matching up for you?  Is there something that has been latent, dormant, or altogether forgotten that is trying to return?  What did you love to do in the past that you have not done in a very long time?  What did you love to do (or want to do) as a child?  Would doing it make you happier?

If you do not know the answer to this today, you may know it by Sunday.  Tomorrow begins what I am calling Astrological Beauty Week with Venus moving into Pisces to meet up with Neptune.  Venus and Neptune bring the heights of beauty, but when they converge in Pisces, we have an explosion of creativity!  The most beautiful forms for the future can be envisioned under this energetic.  Any efforts put toward your own personal "adobe mission" - your outreach into your future - will multiply a hundred fold and will fully bloom and yield by October 17, 2015.  (Remember, it's a big picture kind of day, so we are seeing far ahead.)  Beauty Week is good.  The best of it is found in nature.

That's the official end of today's report, but here's more for consideration:

The little element that is not so little with Venus' entry into Pisces tomorrow is that it will begin transiting in opposition to the Black Moon in Virgo.  The Black Moon is transiting Virgo through August 25, 2015.  During this time, we are coming to new understanding about our fear of failure and our fear of being vulnerable.  Some do better with these things than others, and this is indicated through one's astrology chart.  But as Venus transits Pisces through February 20, 2015, we come to a new understanding of how we want to measure up to ourselves.  The measure of who we are is self-determined.

Just what you want to be, you will be in the end.  - Moody Blues, Nights in White Satin
