Astro-Notes for December 13 and 14, 2014

Daily aspects for December 13:
– Mercury in Sagittarius semi-sextile Pallas in Scorpio
– Sun in Sagittaris trine Eris Rx in Aries, semi-square Mars in Aquarius and trine Jupiter Rx in Leo

So, yesterday we’ve made the necessary adjustments in our plans or schedule to complement our approach

or strategies we’ve devised in regard to personal or business affairs. I, per example, had joined forces with a beautiful young Lady, who was selling scents in a combined party, where I did the Tarot readings. With the enterprising Sagittarius Sun moving into a fire Grand Trine with his dispositor, retrograde Jupiter in Leo, and retrograde Eris in Aries, it was a successful, enjoyable event, where we had a lot of fun in a nice social setting that not only connected us closer or allowed us to reach out to more people, but also served our business interests and self-promotion. With the Uranus-Pluto square tightening in the background from house 5 (self-expression, creativity) to house 8 (shared values, business matters) in my chart, this was an important ‘setup’ in this context, which will hopefully help me to get my astrology/tarot business established in this area. It was also the first time for me that I had a party of this kind and did several readings at once and in quick succession (Sun in Sagittarius semi-square Mars in Aquarius). Drawing the High Priestess as card for the day was also very appropriate. I even took my selenite crystal ball with me (it was really warm after all these sessions) together with my crystal cards. Each participant chose a card from that deck to find out which would be the best crystal to acquire for them to help them on their individual journey.

Tarot card of the day was the The High Priestess”, suggesting that we’re aware of a larger reality and see the potential or understand the possibilities as we open us to what could be. We’re looking beyond the obvious and being receptive to all kinds of subtle and hidden influences, which include our inner voice we need to listen to and trust. Also, we need to look for areas of our life, which are out of balance and therefore require greater foresight and wisdom. Our life is changing. Things that once seemed certain can no longer be taken for granted.

Daily aspects for December 14:
– Sun in Sagittarius trine Eris Rx in Aries, semi-square Mars in Aquarius and trine Jupiter Rx in Leo
– Third Quarter Moon at 22:26 Virgo/Sagittarius at 7:50 am EST
– Venus in Capricorn sextile Neptune in Pisces
– Moon ingress to Libra at 11:04 pm EST

Thus, we were and still are being challenged to put things into perspective in sync with the ‘crisis in consciousness’ that accompanies the Third Quarter Moon. As a consequence, we have to reorient ourselves in accordance with the new facts or information we gathered and after an analysis of these experiences. There is a chance for us to meet certain expectations or ideals if we work on the realization of our values and get better organized or prepared. Once the Moon will make ingress to Libra late in the night will we seek to stabilize our emotions and achieve inner peace, while our focus is on relationships and other matters of value.

Tarot card of the day is the 6 of Pentacles”, indicating a turn for the better and that we’re heading into a positive cycle. We can tap the flow of abundance into our lives by placing ourselves purposefully in positions that stimulate a response from our environment. However, the element of balance is emphasized. As we give so shall we receive and dispense charity in our own lives.

On the world stage we have been seeing many examples of police brutality that caused people to unite and march/demonstrate for their individual rights and lives as the Uranus-Pluto square tightens once again.

Astro-Notes on December 12, 2014

Daily aspects:
– Venus in Capricorn sesqui Juno in Leo
– Mercury in Sagittarius trine Jupiter Rx in Leo
– Moon ingress to Virgo at 10:18 am EST
– Vesta in Capricorn sextile Neptune in Pisces

We feel the pressure of personal or creative commitments we made and for which we need to prepare or

even in regard to Christmas gifts and other purchases, inclusive decorations, we still have to acquire or finish or priorities and preferences concerning the approaching holidays we still have to tackle. In any case, there’s a lot on our mind and time is running out. So, we might get a bit frustrated or depressed. However, there’s a good chance we can work this out – just not all at once, but one step at a time. Later this morning will things improve, while we seek to get them under control and also to find resolutions for our problems.

Tarot card of the day is the 3 of Pentacles”, a card that refers to encouragement due to cooperation and collaboration. Teamwork and planning are the essential ingredients toward the achievement of our goals. We’re taking the next step toward becoming established. Improvement of our situation and success are possible if we apply the necessary effort and show persistence.

“The true sign of strength is gentleness.” ~ A.D. Williams
This phrase caught my eye this morning and I found it quite fitting for the astro-weather. A fire Grand Trine has been ‘hanging’ over us in the sky that could’ve brought out the best or the worst in us, depending on our attitude and the state of our ego. Consequently, for some, pride, self-righteousness and self-importance could’ve run the show if they weren’t mindful of what they believe are their entitlements, whereas others could have showed greater understanding and more generosity or open-mindedness toward others. In any case, the force of our convictions could have created high spiritedness or high drama with tolerance levels either up or down. I had a better day, but because I also had to attend the Health and Safety meeting and conduct an inspection, I fell far behind again. However, my workshop flyer and several other ads are out, which means I performed better in matters of self-promotion. In this sense, I’d like to add here too that you can purchase a reading with me, which always makes a good gift. And please donate to my blog (donation button is on the right sidebar) if you enjoy my posts so that I can justify investing my time and energy into this endeavor.

Tarot card of the day is the King of Cups”, suggesting that we feel emotionally balanced and in control, because we’re drawing on emotional maturity to navigate life’s challenges. We’re approachable and can be relied upon, while being responsive instead of reactive and thus capable of managing strong emotions that may surface. Moreover, there is a focus on business matters. Consequently, a wide range of artistic and cultural activities are emphasized.

Astro-Notes on December 10, 2014

Daily aspects:
– Juno in Leo sextile NN in Libra/trine SN in Aries
– Mars in Aquarius semi-sextile Neptune in Pisces
– Venus ingress to Capricorn at 11:41 am EST (until Jan. 3)

This was not a good day for me. Although I had some of my co-workers helping me with my merchandise, it

seemed as though I was not able to coordinate our efforts and then there was one misunderstanding after another. Only after Venus’ ingress to Capricorn did things settle down a bit and people were more reasonable. This started a period during which we have a chance to ground and stabilize our feelings or emotional nature, strengthen our values and relationships, organize our assets and work on our self-worth and wellbeing.

Tarot card of the day is The Fool”, referring to unlimited potential, new beginnings, a sense of innocence and naivety. Anything can happen as we start on this journey. We could be taken into unchartered territory and thus need to be aware of the risks and dangers we could encounter, but also need to be ready to take on the opportunities presented to us. This card encourages us to have faith and calls upon us to trust, believe in our spirit and to follow our heart.

Astro-Notes on December 9, 2014

Daily aspects:
– Mercury conjunct Ceres in Sagittarius and semi-square Mars in Aquarius
– Juno in Leo sextile NN in Libra/trine SN in Aries
– Sun in Sagittarius trine Juno in Leo, sextile NN in Libra/trine SN in Aries and conjunct Ceres
– Pallas in Scorpio square Jupiter Rx in Leo
– Moon ingress to Leo at 10:14 pm EST

Today again, we had a lot on our plate, to chew on and to deal with. Although we may have been quite challenged strategy-wise, we were game and got the show on the road, knowing that we can still rearrange or smooth things over in the next few days as long as we keep the flow going. New sub-cycles involving our maternal and nurturing principle have started with great potential for better understanding and communicating of issues and also for more support. Therefore, it’s easier for us to shine in our role, to fulfill our mission and perform better, which allows us to be proud of ourselves. We also feel more confident and self-assured in regard to our future prospects. Once the Moon has made ingress to Leo we’ll be more inclined toward drama, while seeking to express ourselves and our creativity.

Tarot card of the day is Strength”, suggesting that we draw upon our inner strength and the power of our spirit and will. With compassion and understanding can we handle the most difficult situation and also tame the beast within. We have the ability to be tolerant, forgiving and accepting and thus can gently influence our environment. Furthermore, we can be assured that we have enough endurance to see things through to their end and get a lot accomplished.

Astro-Notes on December 8, 2014

Daily aspects:
– Mars in Aquarius semi-sextile Vesta in Capricorn
– Sun-Mercury superior conjunction in Sagittarius
– Jupiter stations retrograde at 22:37 Leo at 3:41 pm EST (until April 8 at 12:35 Leo)

Another cycle climaxes, building upon and continuing with the Full Moon revelation. This one started on

October 16 and the ideas or inspiration conceived of then can now be seen in the full light of meaning as minds are meeting and expanding upon those matters, while trying to agree on the best course of action that would eventually lead to success in the future. Consequently, an extended period of reviewing our personal and creative options and possibilities begins, during which we have a chance to take advantage of greater opportunities coming our way or opening up now and also to connect to more people. Therefore, we have to be open-minded and enterprising and adjust our approach and ‘business’ politics accordingly if we want to ‘get the party started’ or see our plans taking off.

Tarot card of the day is the 2 of Swords”, representing a delicate balance. We may feel as though we have reached an impasse or even a stalemate. What is needed is a truce so that the problems we’re dealing with can be resolved using logic and the intellect, especially if we don’t know how to proceed. It’s a card of choice that could require from us to make a split decision. There is a sense of being caught between a rock and a hard place, which could make decision-making difficult or, on the other hand, could have us torn by indecision or opposing choices. Awareness of the consequences of our decisions is therefore imperative. However, resolutions will be found and a new beginning is arising out of this.

Astro-Notes on December 7, 2014

Daily aspects:
– Moon ingress to Cancer at 12:34 pm EST
– Juno in Leo trine Ceres in Sagittarius
– Mars in Aquarius semi-sextile Vesta in Capricorn
– Ceres in Sagittarius sextile NN in Libra/trine NN in Aries

Support for us and our personal role or purpose we have to fulfill in the grander scheme of things has been growing as the result of more outreaching and teaching and also better connections to or relations with others. As a consequence, cooperation and assistance are more readily available. We feel closer and understood and also acknowledge that we have to take better care of ourselves. Consequently, we’re adjusting our group or social activities accordingly to be able to manage our causes and investments and to strengthen ‘our community’ together with our body, recognizing that it is the temple of our soul. Around noon time after the Moon’s ingress to Cancer will we seek to nurture and pamper ourselves and to bond with others.

Tarot card of the day is The Hermit”, symbolizing a taskmaster, who leads with purpose and wisdom gathered from years of experience. He furthermore represents completion. Thus, we may well have progressed to a new stage of life, but need to remove any difficulties from a current situation in order to truly advance. Therefore, we begin to re-evaluate our goals and might change our overall direction. In recognizing that each of our thoughts and actions is a brick we use to build our lives, we partake in the creation of our own reality. We have to find the light within and allow ourselves to be touched and illuminated by it as well as help to light the way for others. Moreover, there is an emphasis on peace and patience as well as on accepting the limitations of time and age.
