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.

Monday October 25, 2021

The Moon's trine to Mars this morning may stir a great deal of self-confidence but information is quickly muddled as the Moon goes VOC until this afternoon at 1:59 PM. Although the early part of the day may have us 'spinning our wheels', with the Moon's arrival in Cancer we gain some traction this afternoon that helps us to turn 'stumbling blocks into stepping stones'. Essentially, we need to keep our minds on what we ultimately want and solidify our plans. There are temptations here that may briefly take us off course. Disillusionment is probably the most significant temptation but by staying 'in the driver's seat' we will find our way through and see our confidence restored by the end of the day.

Weekly Summary


" I used to pray for answers, but now I'm praying for strength. I used to believe that prayer changes things, but now I know that prayer changes us and we change things."

— Mother Teresa

Last week's pressure and intensity dissipates this week. We find important opportunities to stabilize our confidence and turn our attention to new planning. Our progress may feel halting or unsteady at times as we deal with occasional waves of suspicion, overconfidence, or unrealistic idealism. Essentially, what is required this week is moderation that will help us to stay on track to solidify our positions, realign our beliefs with the facts on the ground, and shore up our alliances. The dissipation of pressure may leave room for us to individually push too hard. Alternatively, we may find ourselves tempted to take the 'line of least resistance' after becoming disillusioned when the pace of progress is not quick enough to suit us. Under this week's waning Moon, we should not expect to make extraordinary progress beyond regaining our balance and developing or refining our 'plan of action'. The protectiveness that we feel at the beginning of the week encourages us withdraw to a safe place in order to nurture our creativity but we need to be aware of the need to keep lines of communications open and continue to explore opportunities for collaboration. The overarching influence of this year is the Saturn-Uranus square which continues to slow us down enough to verify the solidity of our foundation before we make tangible changes. The third and final exact square won't occur until December 24th 2021. With Saturn now direct, that final interaction is now directly in front of us. We are beginning to solidify our positions and stabilize our long term goals. By the end of this week, Mars arrives in determined and persistent Scorpio, where it is especially strong — producing something like a Bulldozer effect. Under this waning lunar cycle, the decks are cleared and any unimportant debris is washed away. We may be prone to some bouts of stubbornness that does not allow for compromise. We may also be tempted to make unnecessary sacrifices in order to try to make progress towards our ultimate goals. The need for balance and moderation will remain crucial, especially as we head into next Thursday's Scorpio New Moon (214 PM PDT 12° Scorpio), which opposes Uranus — a harbinger of dramatic, surprising, and sudden shifts. This week provides us the opportunity to stabilize ourselves ahead of that new round of surprising developments.

Sensitivity breeds protectiveness on Sunday. There is some tendency to see only negative potential, holding us back from productive planning. Our wheels may spin a bit during the early part of the day on Monday but our confidence is eventually restored if we can stay focused. We need to use the stubborn holding power of Tuesday's atmosphere to stand our ground with quiet stability. We shouldn't discount our individual capacity. Patience and experience pay off on Wednesday. Exposure is sudden and disorderly so we need to stay balanced and alert. Thursday offers energy, encouragement, and clarity. A strong sense of independence encourages us to 'cut our own path'. We may find ourselves becoming a bit regimented in our approach on Friday. Overconfidence and unrealistic expectations need to be moderated to keep us from pushing too hard. Mars arrives in Scorpio on Saturday, bringing confidence and certainty. We need to be sure that our certainty is tempered by an honest assessment of the 'facts on the ground'.
