The Sun made ingress to Leo yesterday at 7:26 am PDT, which ushered in a period, during which we seek to shine in the way we express ourselves and perform, draw attention to ourselves, seek admiration, drama and glamour, put ourselves in the limelight or center stage and are more involved with children as well as more creative, confident, self-centered and expressive. In general, we will be more inclined toward warm-heartedness, exuberance, theatrics, playfulness, childishness, having fun, showing off and wanting recreation. However, as the Cancer lunation cycle climaxes tonight at 7:36 pm PDT in the Aquarius Full Moon, issues concerning our individuality, uniqueness or difference (including our eccentricity, idiosyncrasies), our non-conformity or unconventionality and our group involvement and social circle are coming to a head.
The Sabian Symbol for the Full Moon at 1:26 Aquarius states:
“An unexpected thunderstorm. Keynote: The need to develop the inner security, which will enable us to meet unexpected crises – NATURE’S CHALLENGE.”
The Sabian Symbol for the Sun at 1:26 Leo states:
“An epidemic of mumps. Keynote: The spreading power of individual crises through a collectivity – THE INFECTIOUS SPREAD OF INDIVIDUAL EXPERIENCES.”
(Dane Rudhyar, “An Astrological Mandala: The Cycle of Transformations and its 360 Symbolical Phases”, Pages 249 – 250 and 132 – 133, respectively)
Implied by this symbolical imagery is a shocking event we didn’t see coming, catching us by surprise and causing upset and/or an outbreak of emotions the event stirred up within us. Our reaction(s) or response will show our character (especially our selfishness) and integrity (in a crisis situation).
Tarot card of the day is the “5 of Swords”, suggesting that we’re dealing with mixed feelings about life in general and experiencing conflict or discord – inner as well as outer. The more important is it to pick our battles wisely and think before we act. There are boundaries and limitations in life situations we must accept, even though they could make us feel powerless. In this regard, we must overcome ourselves and focus on our needs in order to regain our composure. Breakdown of communication and non-negotiable, self-serving behavior or open hostility, violence, crime and theft could lead to no-win scenarios, defeat and loss.
