An opposition from Mercury in Libra to retrograde Eris in Aries confronts us with inner discord we need to face up to and deal with to be able to arrange for peace of mind. As Ceres in Cancer perfects her trine to retrograde Neptune in Pisces in addition to engaging in a square with retrograde Pallas in Aries, a phase of supporting projections in regard to dependency and of nurturing ideals, which belong to the past, has come to an end, challenging us to begin anew with reviewed strategies in order to take care of our Self-development and foster our growth. With Venus in Leo at the apex position of a square to the nodal axis, we’ve reached a turning point in our personal evaluation and validation of things or matters and thus in our relationship to ourselves, where we’re urged to transform and evolve our love principle to prevent us from getting stuck in repetitive patterns that stand in the way of our happiness and fulfillment.
Tarot card of the day is “The Fool”, referring to unlimited potential, new beginnings, a sense of innocence and naivety. Anything can happen as we start on this journey. We could be taken into unchartered territory and thus need to be aware of the risks and dangers we could encounter, but also need to be ready to take on the opportunities presented to us. This card encourages us to have faith and calls upon us to trust, believe in our spirit and to follow our heart. – The card of The Fool following the 10 of Swords yesterday perfectly describes the transition and reorientation, or ending and new beginning, that is now happening in our lives. Full Moon’s are times of revelation and illumination. Wherever it fell in your chart, in this area will you experience some sort of harvest.
Personal Notes: To my shame as an astrologer I must admit that I thought I’d manage my time perfectly on the day of the Full Moon. Think again. First of all, I slept in and while I was having my breakfast coffee I got a call from work, asking me to come in 2 hours earlier. Since I had planned among others things to do 2 loads of laundry, I had to skip my fitness routine. The moment I grabbed the laundry basket my phone rang again. This time it was my dear friend Sharon – just to get in touch with me and to let me know that they’d include me in their circle anyway, even though I wouldn’t be present for the Full Moon celebration. As happy and touched as I was by this gesture, I had to cut her off to be able to start the laundry, about which I felt really guilty. Meanwhile, my mailbox filled up and I haven’t even started yet to respond to those mails – just to a few on Facebook, because my shift ended later in the evening and after that I took care of my weekly grocery shopping and then I had to get up early this morning for a short shift after which I went to my daughter’s place to join the celebration of her partner’s birthday. Consequently, I’ve been late with the posting of my blog entries and everything else that has accumulated. Typical for the ‘astro-weather’ I also came “under attack” from 2 of my so-called friends on Facebook in the lead-up to the Aries Full Moon, people who consider themselves ‘spiritual persons’, but were trying to force their truths on me by preaching to me in a self-righteous manner. Their comments were based on projections and personal judgments, which revealed how highly they think of themselves, unaware of the ‘flaws in their holiness’.
Sorry, but as you can see WordPress features are not working for me anymore and I have no tech assistance close by. So, we’ve gotta do without the beautiful images and charts. 😦
