A semi-square from Juno in Scorpio to her dispositor, retrograde Pluto in Capricorn, urges us to strengthen our resistance toward powerful temptations of the dark kind and try to control compulsive and subconscious tendencies in our interactions with others in order to be able to evolve our relationship principle and commit us to shared values. After the Moon’s ingress to Aries at 4:58 pm EDT will we feel more animated and action-orientated, though less considerate or patient.
Tarot card of the day is the “9 of Swords”, suggesting that negative thoughts, worries and concerns are overwhelming. We could be experiencing inner conflicts or mental anguish and consequently find ourselves in a dark place, full of fear and suffering, or might have a tendency to put ourselves down without justification or generally feel low and angry. This may be the sum total of an extremely difficult time, when we are dealing with an accumulation of stress and worry. In any case, the situation is complex, but our misery can be overcome through introspection and the maintaining of faith and trust and that fate will run its course. Inner reflection is necessary in order to overcome debilitating emotions.
Personal Note: The long-awaited storms are finally here and will hopefully bring some relief from the almost unbearable heat and humidity of the last couple of days. It is indeed remarkable how the ‘outer’ world reflects the inner – “As without so within.” Personally, I’m feeling low in energy this morning. Although my fan has been running all night and the windows are wide open here in my apartment, the air in here is still ‘sticky’.
