Daily Astrology 8/20/2019


“Our lives really do seem strange and mysterious when you look back on them. Filled with unbelievably bizarre coincidences and unpredictable, zigzagging developments. While they are unfolding, it’s hard to see anything weird about them, no matter how closely you pay attention to your surroundings. In the midst of the everyday, these things may strike you as simply ordinary things, a matter of course. They might not be logical, but time has to pass before you can see if something is logical.”

Haruki Murakami, Killing Commendatore

There’s a strange energy to the day from the moment we open our eyes to it. We may feel like wandering aimlessly, like strangers reluctant to be introduced. Sun and Pluto are pulling away from one another which triggers enigmatic events replete with odd but intriguing little details you feel compelled to investigate.

Venus brings forth disagreements we’ve had in the past so that we can drag them into the light and discuss them thoroughly and gain closure.

We’re coming to the end of weeks of energy that may have had us seeking approval from those around us rather than from ourselves. Most energy is a spectrum, so this unhealthy need has ebbed and flowed like the tides. We want to be who we truly are but use outside input to gauge where we are and how we’re doing. The thing is, others can only tell you from their perspective, which is filtered through their past, and their present, which is nothing like yours. So why have someone without knowledge of who you are offer input? Earn your own self-approval by trusting in yourself and your intuition.

Also consider that the Sun has been bombarding Earth with geomagnetic bursts like we’ve not seen in this generation. That incredibly powerful energy culminates today as well.

So our dreams are deeply impacted, as are animals that have been displaying odd behavior. People might also seem overly sensitive and on edge now.

Mercury and Saturn are squabbling overhead, bringing today’s challenges to a head, though Mercury trine Jupiter offers us the space we need to broaden our perspectives and identify pain points. Self-confidence helps tremendously today. When we understand that the need for outside approval is not helpful, we might also learn that self-assurance is the ultimate goal. Go for it.

Tomorrow is another story.
