Daily Astrological Currents Archives

This page is offered as away to look back at the Daily Astrological Currents Archives for a particular day going back to December of 2013.

Wednesday October 21, 2020

We may make more progress today than we can recognize. Even if we have little to point to or we fail to clearly communicate our perspective, there is a dawning awareness of common purpose. This is a quiet recognition of the truth that we are all connected, despite our personal squabbles and disagreements. Even divergent goals and conflicting belief structures can find some common ground with a broad enough perspective. Today offers extra room to see our similarities and accept our differences. This is more than simply 'agreeing to disagree'. We may not find any route to tangible communication today but at least we there is some room for compassionate understanding. With just a touch of inspiration, creative strategies may be initiated that will (eventually) lead to satisfying results.

Weekly Summary


"Creativity comes from a conflict of ideas."

— Donatella Versace

There may be more progress made this week than we recognize while we are slogging our way through it. The expanding energy and initiative of last Friday's New Moon (12:30 PM PDT 23° Libra) is encouraging us to expand our reach and build new alliances. However, with Venus still in skeptical Virgo, we seem rather disinclined to trust others or follow their lead. The importance of our personal goals and principles is still front and center, encouraging many of us to take a stand in the face of all odds and despite any conflicting agendas. The trines, this week, of Venus to Jupiter, then Pluto, and then Saturn, are encouraging us to find some way to share our ideas with enthusiasm, in order to garner the support of others and build new alliances. Even so, Venus in Virgo is generally rather skeptical and the impulses could easily be overshadowed by the crisis-driven atmosphere that is more likely to find us standing on principle than forging compromise. Nonetheless, with Mercury retrograding in 'truth-seeking' Scorpio, we are being guided through a process of reexamination of our most deeply held beliefs, goals and principles. There is a growing awareness this week that we are, in fact, all connected despite our personal squabbles and disagreements. When we are able to muster some detachment and compassionate understanding, we can begin to recognize the value of common purpose. Despite the tendency towards defensiveness and, aggressive disagreement, we are guided to expand our perspective and begin to foster creative alliances that allow us to integrate our ideas without abandoning our principles. Ultimately, this week is an important turning point in our awareness — an awakening to the value of common effort towards a greater good. The Sun arrives in Scorpio on Thursday, increasing our determination to find lasting solutions to long standing challenges.

Our confidence is a diminished on Sunday. We aren't terribly interested in sharing our inner processing with others. We may find ourselves creating complications. Monday's optimism is a two-edged sword bringing a more open approach to sharing insights with others but also impulsive action and sharp-tongued defenses. Steady effort is required on Tuesday, in order to build the foundation for new initiatives. We may turn a corner on long-standing disputes. Even if we don't make tangible progress on Wednesday, we seem to find extra room for compassionate understanding of the positions that others take — even if they stand in direct opposition to our own. The Sun arrives in Scorpio on Thursday. We are more inclined to look for routes to new lines of communication in order to ease tension. There is a more practical approach taken on Friday, as we begin to let go of finding perfect solutions. Detachment eases the tension. There is quite a bit of enthusiasm and energy on Saturday but also a significant amount of impulsiveness. Too many questions bring defensiveness.
