Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: "a crowded public marketplace" (human interchange and exchange; self-expression)
It's a windy day today in the crowded public marketplace of humanity, but we find our way around for exactly what we need.
It helps to start by looking around and counting our blessings. This is easier said than done right now, due to astrological aspects. But it is precisely when we cannot see our blessings that we must look harder.
Themes of dependence and independence are also in the air. There is a tendency for people to intrude upon or attempt to dominate others, especially what they think. It's "power grab" energy, and power and control issues are rampant at this time. We enclose ourselves in our own power like a nurturing embrace.
Nurturance is another key theme today. Venus moves into Taurus, disseminating the energy of the Sabian symbol for the first degree of Taurus: "a clear mountain stream." This directs us to refresh ourselves from our Source. It also emphasizes the need for hydration. Things take proper course or direction in our lives under this dynamic. We can nurture this by opening to change, moving on, or moving forward - whichever the case need be. Connecting with our heart's desires also helps.
Your help may be called upon today, with Mars moving to the degree of the Sabian symbol "a young girl feeding birds in winter." The above themes of independence/dependence and nurturance combine together here to reveal how our energy is fed/fed upon. We help ourselves or others see this is when this symbol is in action. There is no self-judgment here, only self-insight. The objective is self-empowerment. Look at how you can do things a different way.
So, even though it's a windy day (with all kinds of things blowing in the air), we find that it serves to direct our course. As mentioned in the opening paragraph, what we find or experience is what we need today. Look around. Count your blessings. See what needs to change. Open to that course.
(Note for astrologers/wise owls who follow it: Mars will make conjunction with the Eris Point tomorrow at 10:30 pm ET/2:30 am UT. Mars and the Eris Point was the subject of discussion when I was a guest on Phoenix's radio show, Phoenix Rising Radio on Truth Frequency Radio last month. I will be Phoenix's guest again tomorrow night, and I hope you can join us.)
