After the Moon’s ingress to Cancer at 3:43 am EDT and instant trine to retrograde Neptune in Pisces we’ve been seeking
out warmth, safety and nurturing, which our sleeping arrangements might have provided at the onset of this transit. With Mercury in Sagittarius engaged in a semi-sextile to Saturn in Scorpio and a quincunx to retrograde Ceres in Cancer, we have to adjust our long-term plans to shared responsibilities to take care of certain traditions together with our support system and thus to be able to deepen our bonds and to reconnect, while feeling and nurturing a sense of camaraderie and belonging. As Venus in Libra squares Pluto in Capricorn we’re challenged to overcome limiting circumstances and toughened conditions in order to accommodate our as well as social values.
Tarot card of the day is the “Knight of Swords”, indicating that we’re embarking on a new project or idea and there’s no stopping us. We’re headstrong and outspoken as we know what we are talking about and let others know where we or they stand, thereby going straight to the point. Certain things can no longer be avoided – the confrontation will come and commence. Yet, there is great ambition, determination and strength as our physical, emotional and spiritual energy is at a peak. Group discussions with like-minded people are best suited to inspire and motivate one another.
In the news: Presidential candidate Mitt Romney starts final push with mass rally, all the while the death toll after hurricane Sandy is climbing.
Personal Notes: Due to hurricane Sandy we had to cancel our Full Moon circle and therefore will meet tonight at Dyana’s place, which is quite a drive from my location. In the meantime, temperatures have dropped, causing my car to freeze over night, very much to my disliking, because this is forcing me to adjust to those hated wintery conditions I’d rather not have to deal with. On the positive side – clocks will be readjusted early in the morning tomorrow (Mercury in aspect to Saturn, the ruler over time), which gives us an additional hour to sleep.
