Daily aspects:
– Venus in Leo quincunx Pluto Rx in Capricorn
– Mercury in Virgo trine Pluto Rx in Capricorn and semi-sextile Venus in Leo

By reining in our personal preferences and feelings of pride or entitlement we can resist temptations of

a lower nature and respond to reorganized affairs with more objectivity, which allows us to be more reasonable and use better judgment. Thus, we honor those values, which are more in line with our idea of practicality and efficiency.

Tarot card of the day is the Page of Pentacles”, a card that encourages us to begin putting those plans and actions in place that will ultimately lead us toward the fulfillment of our goals and dreams. It is time to start acting on all those grand ideas and concepts that have been brewing in our imagination. No matter what’ll take, we need to see the project through and work on the realization of our vision.

– Pallas in Libra semi-sextile Ceres in Scorpio

We felt nourished and supported this morning and sought to hold onto that now that our hopes or wishes in a relationship situation have been fulfilled and we reconnected or re-established a bond that’s been a source of nurturance. However, we need to assess our approach in those cases where our expectations have been too high or idealistic and try to be more cooperative or conciliatory so that we can reach our common goals.

Tarot card of the day is The Lovers”, indicating choices where moral values are questioned, especially in relationship situations. A decision must be made about which we feel divided. We may be struggling with temptations and need to remember that the most attractive option is not always the best one. Problems can be overcome via reconciliation, through harmony and cooperation.

Daily aspects:
– Sun in Leo sesqui Pluto Rx in Capricorn
= Mercury in Virgo semi-sextile Jupiter in Leo, sextile Vesta in Scorpio and sesqui Eris Rx in Aries

It is critical today to reclaim control over our affairs and reorganize things in such a way that we can

feel proud about ourselves again. Therefore, we would benefit from adjusting our plans or schedule accordingly and come up with ideas how to deal with projects and causes we’re passionate about more effectively, while trying not to fret or stress out about it too much.

Tarot card of the day is the Hanged Man”, demanding from us to let go and surrender to the experience, end the struggle, accept what is and hang in there for now. We are in an in-between state and also at a cross-roads, where decisions are postponed, even though there’s a sense of urgency to act. Therefore, we may simply just want to wait for better opportunities. There is a chance that we could see a situation from a new angle and consequently, overturn our priorities or upend the old order. This card also represents someone who has chosen the path of sacrifice and forsaken instant gratification in order to accomplish a higher goal.

– Juno in Cancer trine Neptune Rx in Pisces
– Vesta in Scorpio square Jupiter in Leo (aspect perfection)

We have an opportunity to help others by showing them that we care, especially after we reflected on the higher ideals we want to integrate into our relationship principle. This will shape our role in these dynamics together with our way of committing so that we can make plans and arrangements for the future, which include those higher values. In this regard, we had to confront illusions or projections to become aware of our interpretation of reality and where we might misjudge or are being too easily offended, instead of simply opening a dialogue or conversation with others and making up or resolving interpersonal problems when needed.

Tarot card of the day is The Star”, suggesting we’re reaching for our highest potential as we let ourselves be guided by our inner shining light and also try to bring people together in a fair and ‘brotherly or sisterly’ way, while appealing to the group consciousness or common cause and setting an example how each of us can help and assist the other. We need to keep listening to this inner voice and also to our heart – we are guided by higher values and thus have the universe on our side.

Daily aspects:
– Mercury in Virgo sextile Ceres in Scorpio
– Third Quarter Moon at 24:31 Taurus/Leo at 8:25 am EDT
– Venus in Leo quincunx Neptune Rx in Pisces, square Vesta in Scorpio and conjunct Jupiter
– Moon ingress to Gemini at 6:41 pm EDT

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.

Daily aspects:

It is critical today that we keep our cool, while reviewing the newest trends or changes. Although we may feel annoyed at first, there’s no need to let things over which we have no control provoke us. We have to distance ourselves from the issues and reason them out, thereby bringing order to chaos and fixing things once again. This of course is part of the larger pattern, which is playing out in the background and forcing us to sacrifice our personal mission and core principles for the common cause.

Tarot card of the day is the 5 of Wands”, depicting a day of struggles, restlessness and also playfulness when a lot of ideas are floating around and we could encounter conflicts or quarrels – inside and outside. We might be bothered by trivialities as well as overwhelmed by the pressure and demands on us. It is important to not lose sight of the bigger picture and let these minor vexations deplete our energies. Therefore, we need to get a grasp on these fluctuating energies and whims and carefully assess our attitude, while opening us to the changes they bring into our life.

After the last couple of days’ rushing and running the pace slows down to a rather leisurely beat

around noon time and as a consequence, we might get a bit complacent as we settle into a more steady rhythm. Then another shift happens – this one on the mental plane – which starts a period when we seek to improve the way we communicate, connect and associate, when we also try to make the most of our plans and schedules and when we train our mind and practice our learnt skills more routinely. This is particularly important now that the latest revelations enlightened us for better or for worse. Therefore, self-preservation together with our self-interests take center stage, while we’re evaluating the pros and cons of the problems or situation we’re presented with and keep working things out with others, knowing that this shall pass too and that we’ll endure it no matter how impossible it seems at this point.

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.
