Astro-Notes on October 23, 2012 – finality

The aspect links established yesterday between the Sun in Scorpio, Neptune Rx in Pisces and Jupiter Rx in Gemini are reaching perfection today, while the Pallas-Vesta square (with both asteroids in retrograde motion) is still lingering around. Thus, any remaining strategic challenges that keep us in denial need to be overcome now that we can ‘bury’ certain hopes or expectations we’ve been holding onto and which were never meant to come true. The finality of the outcome of this situation requires that we have to surrender and accept the alternative, even though the disillusionment might seem too overwhelming. Nonetheless, we have to reorient ourselves.

Tarot card of the day is the “8 of Cups”, suggesting that we’re leaving a situation that is no longer working for us. It is important to know though that good times lie ahead. By realizing that the current cycle is over, we’re disentangling ourselves and moving on. We’re starting on a journey of discovery and seek deeper meaning.  This is a card of change and transition.

In the news: The body found in N.J. in the U.S. is likely that of the missing girl. – 2 members of the Russian punk group Pussy Riot have been sent to prisons far from Moscow (gulags) despite their request to serve out their terms in the capital. – The final presidential debate in the U.S. has left presidential candidate Romney ridiculed. –  Cycling champion Lance Armstrong was stripped of his titles, causing another ex-teammate of his to admit to doping. – Also, when I drew this Tarot card back in July, Japan had returned to nuclear energy and now the instable reactor 4 in Fukushima is leaking again (or worse). Unfortunately, no news about this unresolved disaster are being released.

Personal News: I finally called up my ex mother-in-law yesterday evening. Considering the circumstances, her age and ‘fragility’ and the responsibility she has for the 2 handicapped persons in her care, she’s still looking for support, but apparently in the wrong places. She needs to realize that her own family has to make the necessary sacrifices. I’m not a part of it anymore. Her son, whom I divorced, has a new family and the other one has 5 grown kids. So, it’s time that they sit together and work something out.
