Today’s crisis in consciousness is a test of character or personality, in particular in the way we seek to express ourselves or draw attention to us. This could range from being overseen or ignored to overdramatizing or over-exposing ourselves. Therefore, it is important to be aware of our attitude and the role we identify with, especially when we want to impress others (Kim Kardashian, per example, showed us her ass, whatever that means :) ). Consequently, we are showing a more authentic version of ourselves, even more confidence and pride, in order to feel important, accepted or validated, whereby we reveal of which kind of mind we truly are. Thus, it is critical to review our choices together with the ‘liberties’ we take and our individual rights before we act and promote our self-interests, but also to make sure that shared values are being met. At work we’re having a bit of a Christmas Party for which the lounge has been decorated nicely and the management team has volunteered to cook for us. Meanwhile, we got our first load of snow, which forced the snow plows out and me into dressing warmer and turning the heat on in my apartment. My Solar Return will happen tonight when I’ll be riding the bus home after late shift and the Sun-Jupiter square will be a major feature of it.

Tarot card of the day is the 7 of Wands”, suggesting that we’re coming out on top of a situation as things are going well and projects move right along. Thus, we seize the opportunity, are firm and act resolutely as we’re going after what we want. We stand our ground and show determination, even in the face of adversity. Our inner strength and tenacity give us the ability to meet all challenges head-on.

Astro-Notes on November 13, 2014

Daily aspects:
- Mercury in Scorpio semi-sextile Ceres in Sagittarius
- Sun in Scorpio square Jupiter in Leo
- Venus in Scorpio semi-square Pluto in Capricorn
- Juno in Leo trine Uranus Rx in Aries and quincunx Chiron Rx in Pisces
- Pallas in Scorpio sextile Pluto in Capricorn

Well, for me personally the Mercury-Ceres semi-sextile moved the blog to the evening, because I

had ‘knitted away’ on a project yesterday after I had returned home (yeah, I’m trying to get my Christmas gifts together). Thus, something had to give and we also had to summon the courage of our convictions as we were challenged to inquire about our personal options or the state of affairs in situations where we feel powerless or abused. We had enough of it and won’t accept these circumstances any longer, but used the opportunity to address our problems, issues or concerns and if we employed the right approach we might have gotten some answers or responses already, even confirmation of things being in progress and getting worked out soon.

Tarot card of the day is once again the 10 of Pentacles”, suggesting that we seek out permanence and are looking for a solution that will last. Therefore, we are working on the creation of a lasting foundation by moving beyond makeshift arrangements and through a consensus of vision. This card refers to a climax in our foundational life, a culmination, completion or achievement we’ve reached that is the result of our material and tangible efforts and allows us to make a commitment to a sustainable future. We’re now investing in long-term benefits, knowing that we need a consistent approach in order to achieve success that will stand the test of time.

An excellent example of the astro-weather is Kim Kardashian’s photo-shoot of her bare bust (gigantic ass is a better word). Showing off her greatest asset in this ‘extreme’ way of self-exposure/over-exposure (coupled with a good portion of narcissism I might add), using her celebrity status, contains all the elements of the current energies (great emphasis on the Scorpio-Leo-Jupiter combination). So, what have you been showing off? :)

Astro-Notes on November 12, 2014

Daily aspects:
- Mars in Capricorn quincunx Juno in Leo, sextile Chiron Rx in Pisces and square Uranus Rx in Aries
- Vesta in Sagittarius sextile NN in Libra/trine SN in Aries
- Moon ingress to Leo at 1:44 pm EST
= Venus conjunct Saturn in Scorpio

Today we have an opportunity to tackle or even work out a problematic issue or situation, which has

caused us much frustration, if we use a constructive approach. Consequently, we’re challenged to review our choices to be able to take the right course of action in this regard. A new sub-cycle begins during which we have a chance to overhaul our value system and renew our material conditions and relationship structures with the use of in-depth assessment and through the sharing of responsibilities together with intensified commitment to our common cause. In the afternoon will we feel more validated and self-expressive , while seeking to nurture our inner child.

Daily aspects:

- Mars in Capricorn quincunx Juno in Leo
- Vesta in Sagittarius sextile NN in Libra/trine SN in Aries

Quite appropriate for Remembrance Day we have a Mercury-Neptune trine as we remember and honor those who sacrificed their lives for us in the war. We observed a minute of silence at work too. Other than that it was rather stressful with an increased workload, several meetings scheduled and assistance at the frontend called for every half hour. Also, we could have finally received news we’ve been awaiting or hoping for, but this could have come too late or been rather disappointing. Therefore, we could’ve already moved on from this or still struggle to make peace, knowing that life is not fair. However, we have a chance to be fair and do the right thing and this requires that we invest our faith in the future and concentrate on our role in personal relationship situations.

Tarot card of the day is the 3 of Swords”, suggesting heartache, separation or quarrels caused by disharmony and an inability to reconcile differing needs. Therefore, we need to let our feelings wash over us and release any anguish, sadness or sorrow, going beyond it, while refusing to harbor any negative thoughts. One way or another, we will get to the heart of the matter from which clarity and mental resolution will emerge.

Happy 17th Birthday to my niece Michelle!

Daily aspects:
- Moon ingress to Cancer at 3:37 am EST
- Venus in Scorpio quincunx Eris Rx in Aries
- Mars conjunct Pluto in Capricorn
- Mercury in Scorpio semi-square Vesta in Sagittarius
- Sun in Scorpio semi-sextile NN in Libra/quincunx SN in Aries

We wake up this morning feeling more nurtured or pampered, but also moody and sentimental. However, with

the start of this new sub-cycle we have a chance to work on the realization of our intentions and to accomplish activities or initiatives we’re tackling through the strengthening of our influence, the use of a constructive approach together with well-organized efforts and by utilizing and mobilizing our power and resources. Of course, the combination of these energies could also lead to stronger resentment and resistance, to extreme harshness, violence, dominance and cruelty, as well as serious struggling and heavy fighting in order to gain the upper hand or maintain the status quo. In any case, a review of our attitude, combativeness and self-interests requires that we adjust our values and priorities accordingly. It is moreover important today to arrange for our future prospects and to focus on the greater cause or investments to be able to deal with deadlines and complex and complicated matters and also to finally move on from a personal situation, where we need to get on top of our affairs.

Astro-Notes for November 8 and 9, 2014

Daily aspects for November 8:
- Mars in Capricorn semi-square Saturn in Scorpio
- Juno in Leo quincunx Pluto in Capricorn
- Ceres in Sagittarius square Neptune Rx in Pisces
- Mercury ingress to Scorpio at 6:08 pm EST (until Nov. 27)

Daily aspects for November 9:

- Sun in Scorpio semi-sextile Vesta in Sagittarius

Yesterday evening did Mercury return to Scorpio, the sign he first entered on September 27 before he retrograded to Libra. He also set off the eclipse degree. This means, the story that began in relation to these events continues and a period of intensified planning and scheduling might be starting soon. Many matters could get more complex or complicated as ideas, plans, friendships, associations and projects evolve and we’re taking inventory of data and even our thought process, whereby we could uncover hidden information or which could prompt us to research these issues in depth. In fact, our perception is undergoing a transformation with the potential to change some of our views and interpretations of our reality picture. Therefore, we are challenged to overcome personal beliefs, truths or concepts, which prevent us from overhauling our value system and experiencing greater satisfaction, validation and wellbeing. Consequently, we have to make the necessary adjustments to be able to increase our dedication in this regard.

Accordingly, yesterday’s Tarot card The Devil” is succeeded by The Lovers”, suggesting that if we untie the binds that keep us chained to our complexes, fear, shadow or psychic compulsions, we can free ourselves and make the right moral and ethical choices. We also have to remember in this context that the most attractive option is not always the best one and that we have the power to resist temptations if we exert control over our mind or attitude.

This is an interesting ‘setup’ in the event of the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, which not only changed the ‘face of Europe’, but also the power distribution in the world. Personally, I once again arrived at the understanding or conclusion that in some instances you cannot rely or wait on others if you want your plans or projects to take off/be completed and you can arrange for this on your own, while in other instances you have to (Mercury in the last degree of Libra), because your hands might be bound. I also connected with my daughter yesterday after work. We had a long chat that touched on many Scorpio-related topics – whether it concerned personal desires, shared values and resources or intimate aspects of our lives.

Astro-Notes on November 7, 2014

Daily aspects:
- Mercury in Libra sesqui Chiron Rx in Pisces
- Moon ingress to Gemini at 8:44 pm EST
- Venus in Scorpio semi-sextile NN in Libra/quincunx SN in Aries
- Mars in Capricorn semi-square Saturn in Scorpio
- Juno in Leo quincunx Pluto in Capricorn
- Ceres in Sagittarius square Neptune Rx in Pisces

It is particularly important today to be aware of our projections and the messages we send across or the

impression we give off, because we can’t have it both ways or only see our side of the issue. Also, vacillating or flip-flopping will only lead to confusion, while hoping for our expectations to be met or some kind of ‘closure’ could be rather disappointing. As much as we want to see results, we might just have to wait it out due to further delays. Therefore, we have to adjust our priorities and preferences and take the one-step-at-a-time approach in order to be able to arrange for our future prospects, instead of obsessing about immediate reactions or responses. Although we know there’s lots to do or to be planned and organized and this could feel rather overwhelming, we have to understand that ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day’ and that stressing out about it won’t help us. In fact, we might have to walk a fine line, relax or chill out and show more tolerance if we want to accomplish our goals and establish our influence or gain control over these affairs. Later at night will we feel more at ease and seek to adapt to the situation, knowing it’s gonna be a busy weekend and thus, we getter go with the flow.

Tarot card of the day is the Ace of Swords”, indicating a new way of thinking or the conception of an idea or the start of a new project. Our mental powers have been awakened and we’re seeing through illusions, cutting through the confusion, dispelling doubts, finding out the facts, thinking our way through or championing a cause. It’s a time of great insight and mental clarity, which could result in a break-through or aha-moment as well as a greater understanding.
