This morning at 2:42 am EST did Mercury egress to Scorpio, where he will be traversing until December 11 and which corresponds to a phase of regenerating our mind through the ‘recycling’ of ideas and the renewing of or re-investing into plans. After the Moon’s ingress to Sagittarius at 5:51 am EST and instant square to Neptune in Pisces did we have to overcome an emotional state that might have overwhelmed us somehow and could have resulted in hypersensitivity. However, once this lay behind us, we might have been feeling more upbeat, enthusiastic and enterprising since. The Sun in Scorpio’s trine to retrograde Pallas in Pisces on which he follows up with a tense semi-square to his dispositor, Pluto in Capricorn, is suggesting that the shedding of an outdated Self-image (which would have most likely been expressed in a ‘self-pity-drama’ otherwise) results in our ‘resurrection’ and thus in the necessary empowerment to gain control over our circumstances. As Chiron, who has been traveling in retrograde motion since June 12, stations direct at 4:58 Pisces at 3:35 pm EST, the inner healing (or hurting) process (as the case may be, depending to which ‘inner voice’ we’re listening) we underwent may have led to wholesomeness and sanity (if successful), which can now be revealed outwardly through the awareness of and attunement to higher ideals (or, on the other hand, in illusive, desolate idolization – if we embrace ‘lesser’, ego-attached ideals).
Tarot card of the day is “The Lovers”, indicating choices where moral values are questioned, especially in relationship situations. A decision must be made about which we feel divided. We may be struggling with temptations and need to remember that the most attractive option is not always the best one. Problems can be overcome via reconciliation, through harmony and cooperation.
