As the second in a series of Uranus-Pluto squares perfects (the first perfection was on June 24 with Uranus in direct
motion and Pluto retrograde), Pluto has just turned direct in Capricorn, whereas Uranus is still in retrograde motion in Aries, the urge to break free of any limitations and to re-invent ourselves intensifies under the pressure of challenging outer conditions beyond our control we need to overcome and master. Consequently, successful management of our personal affairs and politics is a goal we are gradually working toward and that calls for originality and unconventionality on our part so that we can reform aspects of our lives and personality, which are counterproductive toward this process. With Mercury in Libra in opposition to retrograde Pallas in Aries, we’re confronted with a personal conflict that involves the way we think and enact our ideas or plans, whereby we need to become aware of tendencies toward procrastination, hesitation, indecisiveness, mental instability or being of two minds for that matter, especially when all the things on our agenda or we’re about to take on don’t fit neatly into our schedule and we cannot cope and begin to struggle. A sextile from Vesta in Gemini, who is disposited by Mercury, to retrograde Eris in Aries provides us with a chance to deal objectively and quickly with any form of inner discord, straighten out our commitment and focus on our Self-interests.
Tarot card of the day is the “Ace of Pentacles”, indicating a new beginning that involves the material aspect of our lives. New investments and business ventures are becoming available. We can proceed with trust and take advantage of what works for us, while focusing on concrete results and on the manifestation of our goals. We can make a real-world impact; we’re experiencing growth, a feeling of prosperity and abundance, we flourish and draw to us what we need. Moreover, we operate from a known position, have a support system and can achieve tangible results.
