Astro-Notes on September 17, 2014

Daily aspects:
– Juno in Cancer sesqui Neptune Rx in Pisces
– Mercury in Libra sesqui Neptune Rx in Pisces, square Juno in Cancer and semi-sextile Vesta in Scorpio
– Venus in Virgo opposite Chiron Rx in Aries and quincunx Uranus Rx in Aries
– Ceres in Scorpio trine Chiron Rx in Pisces

While certain relationship dynamics might just feel so familiar, reminding us of seemingly never-ending

struggles we’ve been through time and again to the beat of ‘same old story’, it is important that we don’t lose our faith or give up hope, but focus on our higher values and ideals. We’re in this together and therefore, we need to join forces. Others might even come to our rescue. Although we may feel cheated or that our wants and preferences have been ignored, we need to bridge our differences and adjust our attachments accordingly as we react to new trends or groups, thus combining resources to achieve our common goal. Examples of this astro-weather are found all over the news: the U.S. is coming to the rescue as the Ebola outbreak is spiraling out of control in the same sense as Canadian Prime Minister Harper sent advisers to Iraq and as British Columbia was able to strike a deal with the teachers

Tarot card of the day is the 3 of Cups”, representing wonderful connections and the celebration of friendship and harmonious relationships in general. It heralds a sociable day when we spend quality time with friends and loved ones and experience camaraderie as well as a feeling of oneness. We could be bursting with energy and overflowing with high spirits. Things should be going well.

Daily aspects:
– Pallas in Libra opposite Uranus Rx in Aries
– Mercury in Libra semi-sextile Saturn in Scorpio and conjunct NN/opposite SN in Aries
– Venus in Virgo semi-sextile Jupiter in Leo and sextile Ceres in Scorpio
– Moon ingress to Cancer at 11:24 am EDT

With our future prospects on our mind, we’re keen to make progress in this regard. However, matters are more complex and complicated than we like and therefore we have to adjust our priorities accordingly, which means we have to select which of our wants are more important to our personal mission and if we choose from that practical standpoint there’s a chance we can increase our productivity. Moreover, we need to trust in our capabilities, knowing that we can do this. Around noon will we feel more supported and seek to bond and be nurtured.

Tarot card of the day is the 8 of Swords”, suggesting that we need to look at a difficult situation from a new angle and with a different perspective. Because our thinking is limited and we’re struggling to see a way out of our dilemma, it is imperative that we open our eyes to the options that lay in front of us. There are choices available, but in order to recognize them, we have to get into the right mindset first.

Astro-Notes on September 15, 2014

Daily aspects:
– Juno in Cancer square nodal axis
– Pallas in Libra quincunx Chiron Rx in Pisces and opposite Uranus Rx in Aries
– Sun in Virgo quincunx Eris Rx in Aries
– Third Quarter Moon at 23:08 Gemini/Virgo at 10:04 pm EDT

The turning point we’ve reached in regard to our relationship principle is accompanied by the Third

Quarter Moon, which is termed the ‘crisis in consciousness’ or ‘crisis of significance’, a stage at which we need to put things pertaining to matters developed through the unfolding of this cycle into perspective. Consequently, we’re dealing with challenges, which force us to figure out how to communicate our message effectively, and thus, which relationship politics we need to employ in order to solve this problem and to end the conflict and also how to react properly in this situation in order to serve our self-interests.

Tarot card of the day is The Moon”, suggesting that some things are hidden from conscious view, making it necessary to look well below the surface in order to find clarity or truth. On the other hand, invisible things could be brought to the surface and unforeseen perils could be experienced. This card has moreover the potential to project fears into the present and future based on past ordeals. Repressed thoughts, images and feelings could cause overwhelming disturbances. We might be longing for sleep. It is important to remedy this for which we need to go through a purging process, thereby releasing deep memories. The Moon is a card of illusion and deception, and therefore often suggests a time when something is not as it appears, causing errors in our judgment. It is also possible that we may have lost our way and are now left to walk in the dark, guided only by our inner light and intuition. Nonetheless, we need to go on without a clear picture of where we are or where we are going. It is true that things are vague and illusive, neither clear nor certain or definitive in any way and that therefore we may be torn between many influences, which could distract us from following our core path. The more important is it to reflect upon our life and to use our intuitive abilities or listen to our inner voice to get in touch with our vision. Renewal is possible and secrets may be revealed as we’re walking these dreamscapes. The Moon is moreover a symbol of the turning tides and can refer to healing abilities and other psychic or intuitive work.

Daily aspects:
– Juno in Cancer trine Saturn in Scorpio and square nodal axis
– Moon ingress to Gemini at 2:26 am EDT
– Mars in Sagittarius sesqui Uranus Rx in Aries
– Venus in Virgo trine Pluto Rx in Capricorn
– Vesta in Scorpio semi-sextile NN in Libra/quincunx SN in Aries
– Mercury shadow period begins

This morning we might wake with a plan in our mind or a schedule filled with errands, all of which could keep us pretty busy. Moreover, we feel a sense of excitement and anticipation that keeps us spinning our wheels as we hurry to get everything done in time for whatever we have arranged for later on. And we will manage perfectly, because we are well prepared and have everything worked out and at the same time, we feel relaxed and rested enough or comfortable and well situated to deal with our circumstances. Relationship-wise, we have reached a cross-roads now that we cannot depend on certain others for support anymore or due to the ending of traditional, habitual and familiar relationship patterns and roles. Therefore, it’s time to move on from the past and to evaluate our future prospects in this regard, which requires that we have to integrate the new trends and make the best of it all. With Mercury entering his shadow period today, these matters will come up for review and reassessment.

Tarot card of the day is the 8 of Wands”, representing a very focused kind of motion and activity and a time when we need to strike while the iron is hot as the path is cleared now. It encourages us to move quickly to pursue the best opportunities available right now and thus to reach for our goals enthusiastically in order to make fast progress.

Personally, I’m busy doing laundry and household chores. Chatted with my daughter all morning on Skype, which was lots of fun and it felt as if she was just sitting right here on the table with me (8 of Wands).

Astro-Notes on September 13, 2014

Daily aspects:
– Mercury in Libra quincunx Chiron Rx in Pisces and opposite Uranus Rx in Aries
– Vesta conjunct Saturn in Scorpio
– Juno in Cancer trine Saturn in Scorpio
– Mars ingress to Sagittarius at 5:56 pm EDT (until Oct. 26)
– Ceres in Scorpio square Jupiter in Leo

Today, we have to confront the changed situation by focusing on progress and evaluating how new trends

may affect our plans. This includes that we may have to rearrange or reschedule. In any case, we’re tapping into our inner reservoirs of strength and utilize our resourcefulness, stamina and renewed drive to master our own world. We know we have to turn a corner and get ahead of the game if we want to feel a sense of completion, accomplishment, contentment or pride at the end of the day. Mars’ ingress to Sagittarius in the evening brings a period of increased activity during which we seek to boost our initiatives and drive and to expand our reach, when we have many intentions and desires we want to pursue and when our approach is optimistic, adventurous and enterprising.

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.

Daily aspects:

– Mercury in Libra quincunx Chiron Rx in Pisces and opposite Uranus Rx in Aries
– Ceres in Scorpio square Jupiter in Leo
– Vesta conjunct Saturn in Scorpio
– Juno in Cancer trine Saturn in Scorpio

So, now that we’ve set all these things in motion and adjusted our life and purpose to arrange for our future prospects, especially in regard to relating and interacting, we’re hoping and waiting with anticipation, not knowing if things will turn out as we expected or even change for the better or if it was all in vain once again. In any case, the game is on and we’re challenged to overcome self-defeating personal convictions and principles at the onset of this new cycle during which we will have a chance to dedicate us wholeheartedly and passionately to a sense of structure and authority through the relentless pursuit of our ambitions and goals. The choices we made and the actions we took to influence our situation have resulted in more control over our life and thus, ultimately in our own empowerment. We’ve outgrown old relationship dynamics and past roles, which kept us dependent on others and also on the defensive. Synchronistically, yesterday it felt like winter is just around the corner – the change of season has been so tangible – down to the ‘bare bones’. Yes, we’re experiencing a change in the seasons of our life and it is a profound one with lots of transformational potential.

Tarot card of the day is the Page of Swords”, a card that is also called “The Renewer” and is all about communication, information and ideas and indicates the ability to rise above emotional confusion. The Page or Princess of Swords represents commitment to a new way of life, because of the settling and cutting away of past inner conflicts, the regaining of mental clarity and a victory over emotional moods. Manifestation of our dreams can actually happen in the not so distant future as she delivers messages of change and news of official matters.

Things are set in motion irrevocably. We do what is necessary to accommodate our future prospects. Therefore, later at night, could we feel more comfortable and rest assured that our security needs have been taken care of.

Tarot card of the day is the 7 of Cups”, representing a multiplicity of possibilities and choices that need to be looked at for their potential – real or imagined – as well as for their basis in reality, whereby we need to be aware that not all that glisters is gold and that less enticing options might turn out to be great opportunities. Therefore, it’s important now to narrow our focus.
