Venus in early Taurus makes two conjunctions today: one to 1992 QB1, and one to the centaur Pelion. QB1 is considered the guardian of a threshold, in a liminal sense; Pelion might be seen as representing the home. It’s as if there is an opportunity for a mystical experience or inspired moment that in some way leads you back to yourself.
One benefit of being as organized as possible is that when an inspiration appears, you’re ready to make the most of it. The Moon and Sedna, each related to instinct and the expression of the subconscious — though one zips round the zodiac every 29 days and the other takes 11,000 years — both aspect the lunar nodes today.
Today’s astrology, along with the momentous Full Moon tomorrow, suggests that you focus your devotional energy. You don’t need one specific, lifelong vocation to do this. All that matters is what you’re passionate about, what you enjoy doing and where you want to go, at this particular moment. Make your plans, then set the wheels in motion.
Grasping how things came to be as they are is an intellectual form of understanding. Yet sometimes we feel a more intuitive sense of ‘rightness’ when connecting ‘back then’ with ‘now’. Often, that understanding feels supportive; other times, it creates a sense of tension within us that compels us to act on what we’ve learned.
Certain inner planet aspects today suggest that you might encounter a scenario or figure that prompts a specific emotional response. Remember that you’re human, not a robot, and that total control over your feelings is neither possible nor necessary. Indeed, instinct can be a handy guide to truths not easily found through analysis.
Synchronicity is surprising in the moment. Yet it often leads to unanticipated developments of the kind that make perfect sense when you look back on them in hindsight. Openness sets the stage for synchronicity; a willingness to step into the unknown — to follow the synchronicity — is what creates the unexpected path that later makes sense.
With a beautiful pattern forming in the mutable signs, you might ask yourself what you’re itching to change or shift. Do you need to reclaim your creativity? Balance your beliefs with some action, or balance your mind and mouth with some soul? Focus your physical and creative energy on healing something?
Chiron’s long square to Pholus is one of the defining aspects of this year. Eric has previously suggested that any event with centaurs involved is going to relate to healing past difficulties in some way, because this is the broad theme of the centaur mythology. This particular iteration speaks of habits, and how to break patterns that make us feel stuck.
