Neptune, who has been in retrograde motion since June 4, stationed direct this morning at 2:52 am EST at 00:21
Pisces, which has the potential to bring about a shift in awareness (how appropriate for 11-11), especially in the area of our chart where Neptune is transiting. After we reviewed our ideals and re-dreamt dreams or re-imagined visions, wishes and hopes during the time of the retrogradation, we can now release uncertainties and end a period of disorientation or seeming helplessness, while revealing our inner light or receiving enlightenment. As retrograde Mercury in Sagittarius engages in a tense semi-square to Venus in Libra and the Sun in Scorpio in a harsh sesqui-quadrate to retrograde Uranus in Aries, it is critical that we assess our values appropriately to be able to be more tolerant and open-minded in our perception in order to reinvent ourselves amidst re-emerging trends for progress and Self-advancement. With Mars in Sagittarius in semi-sextile aspect to the North Node in Scorpio (quincunx South Node in Taurus), a motivational adjustment toward our future prospects is necessary and requires that we act accordingly by moving on from repetitive patterns that keep us stuck in the past.
Tarot card of the day is the “8 of Wands”, representing a very focused kind of motion and activity and a time when we need to strike while the iron is hot as the path is cleared now. It encourages us to move quickly to pursue the best opportunities available right now and thus to reach for our goals enthusiastically in order to make fast progress.
Happy 15. Birthday to my grown-up niece Michelle (Michi)!
