As the Sun in Virgo perfects his t-square with the nodal axis in Sagittarius/Gemini, which has aligned with the Solar Eclipse degree (from May 20), we’ve reached a cross-roads destiny-wise, where we have to make a decision in regard to our long-term future prospects and be selective about our life’s direction in order to be able to move away from the past and on with our life. With Venus in Cancer engaged in tense octile aspects to the nodal axis in addition to a semi-sextile to Vesta in Gemini, this crisis situation is necessary for our emotional and material growth, whereby it is important to leave familiar and habitual thinking patterns behind and learn from past experiences to be wiser and smarter in the future and also to expand our future options. Thus, we’re making an adjustment in the way we use to take care of our values and desires by adapting our commitment to recent developments, especially because retrograde Pallas in Aries’ sesqui-quadrate to Juno in Scorpio presses us to re-enact personal strategies in what could be described as a last attempt (Pallas’ dispositor Mars is in the process of changing signs) toward influencing relationship and power dynamics. After Mars’ ingress to Scorpio at 11:24 am EDT, where he will be traversing until October 7, intentions and motivation will intensify. This is a period when our actions have more influence and when we assert ourselves more powerfully, while transforming or renewing our approach.
Tarot card of the day is the “2 of Wands”, representing the urge to move on, be bold and daring as well as original and proactive. This card indicates that we have come to a time of decision, where we must decide whether we want to build on what we have or perhaps expand in a new direction. It also suggests that we might be in the planning stages of developing a business. Therefore, it is imperative that we bring forward the patience and focus of our intent and maximize on these opportunities, which are coming our way now. We need to confront the situation head-on, leave familiar grounds behind, step out into a new world and explore our options. Moreover, this card can also refer to the productive meeting of minds, from which partnerships can prosper and be successful.

Personal Notes: I had another discussion with my landlord regarding the unwanted buzzing on my door by my neighbor and his companions. Although he’s taking more powerful measures, I’ve made up my mind to move on and have already requested a transfer to another store. It’s just a first step in a new direction about which I have no way of knowing where it will lead toward or if I will have any success in this regard, but I had to take the initiative in order to be able to gain more influence over my personal circumstances.
