Astro-Notes on October 9, 2012 – a new understanding

The Sun in Libra’s trine to retrograde Jupiter in Gemini signals the ending of a short chapter in our lives during

which we learnt to see a situation in a new light and judge it adequately, which resulted in renewed understanding that is now pushing us to act in accordance with this perspective we’ve arrived at as the Libra Sun follows up with a semi-square to Jupiter-ruled Mars in Sagittarius. Meanwhile, a trine is forming between Juno in Sagittarius and retrograde Uranus in Aries, to which Mercury in Scorpio contributes with a quincunx and semi-sextile, respectively, after he left a trine with retrograde Chiron in Pisces. This indicates that problems pertaining to matters of shared interests have been addressed and the necessary adjustments are being made to reach an understanding, initiate change and make progress in our interactions with others. With Venus in Virgo involved in another trine to Pluto in Capricorn together with a tense sesqui-quadrate to retrograde Eris in Aries, the practical, matter-of-fact evaluation of these limiting or oppressing circumstances has resulted in empowerment, because we’re working on resolutions and consequently feel capable of managing our affairs in a way that serves our best interests. Therefore, after the Moon made ingress to Leo at 7:54 am EDT, we’re concentrating on ourselves, seeking validation through children, creative pursuits and the spoiling of our inner child.

Tarot card of the day is “The Hanged Man”, urging us to let go and surrender to the experience, ending the struggle, accepting what is and hanging in there for now. We may want to suspend any decision-making and simply just wait for better opportunities. There is a chance that we could see a situation from a new angle and consequently, overturn our priorities or upend the old order. This card also represents someone who has chosen the path of sacrifice and forsaken instant gratification in order to accomplish a higher goal.
