I could already feel the Mercury-Ceres sextile approaching yesterday later in the evening when
I ‘shared a piece of my mind’ or two on Facebook and got ‘nurturing’ responses from close others. So, if we take our chances today we can make the most of our day and deepen the bond with important others by letting them know how we feel and showing some love. This leads us straight into the ‘crisis in consciousness’, marked by the Third Quarter Moon, which tests our love principle and thus our ability to enjoy ourselves and everything that life has to offer. Therefore, an adjustment on the heart level is required for us to be able to meet certain ideals, promises and longings, which have remained unfulfilled so far. We literally have to take heart and sacrifice some of our core values or personal preferences (especially when they lean toward selfishness or snobbism and other inner demons that lurk in the shadow) and ‘burn them in the fire’ so that we can commit us entirely and wholeheartedly to shared values and causes and then we’ll have fun and good times together. Consequently, we’re starting a new sub-cycle that combines attachments and worth or validation with life-concepts and expansion in the self-loving, playful, grand-gesture, sunny-disposition sign Leo. From this a lot of personal greatness can ensue and attract benefits, good luck, prosperity, creative opportunities and general wellbeing. There is furthermore potential to boost our confidence, magnetism and joie de vivre and at the same time could we feel more inclined toward generosity, self-indulgence or spoiling our inner child or getting more involved with children and admiration of Self and others, while displaying our talents, showcasing our ability for charm and grace and expressing sensitivity and sensuality in big ways and large gestures. Later in the evening will we feel more flexible and communicative and seek to connect and socialize.
Tarot card of the day is the “3 of Wands”, suggesting opportunities to expand our horizons as everything is progressing steadily and we’re motivated to make changes and explore options. There is a creative blending of energy as we’ve reached the point where action is now taking place and others are willing to help us make things happen. Consequently, we need to become aware of more potential that exists outside of our current environment and think big. It’s a card of vision and foresight and looking for greater possibilities. Therefore, we need to remain open-minded and adopt a longer-term view.
Happy Birthday to my dear friend Diane, spirit guide and angel reader.
