A semi-square from the Sun in Capricorn to the North Node in Scorpio (sesqui-quadrate South Node in Taurus) urges us to prepare ourselves to meet our future prospects with a sense of responsibility and maturity instead of resisting influences over which we have no control and struggling with the same problems over and over again. As the old year comes to an end and we’re readying ourselves for a new beginning, we might finally realize that things only get worse when we don’t take control over our life and do something about this situation. We cannot persevere if we don’t leave the baggage behind and “shed a skin”. Its time to get “unstuck” and thus, to set our will on achieving this end. Mercury’s ingress to Capricorn at 9:02 am EST, where he will be traversing until January 19, 2013, introduces a time when we focus on the realization of our ideas and plans, strengthen or break connections, organize our agenda and surroundings and work on managing matters of communication and mobility. With Venus in Sagittarius involved in a semi-square aspect to Mars in Aquarius, who also receives a semi-sextile from Juno in Capricorn and forms a sextile to Uranus in Aries, while Juno and Uranus square off, we’re challenged to master problems and trials encountered through changes in established relationship dynamics, where it is critical that we act or react differently, but in accordance with higher values and by reaching out, now that we have a chance to bring about progress and a choice to do something unconventional or reformistic that allows us to adjust our intentions to relationship ambitions.
Tarot card of the day is the “2 of Swords”, representing a delicate balance. We may feel as though we have reached an impasse or even a stalemate. What is needed is a truce so that the problems we’re dealing with can be resolved using logic and the intellect, especially if we don’t know how to proceed. It’s a card of choice. There is a sense of being caught between a rock and a hard place, which could make decision-making difficult or, on the other hand, could have us torn by indecision. Awareness of the consequences of our decisions is therefore imperative. However, a new beginning is arising out of the solutions found.
Personal Note: I can’t believe that this year is over. The older I get the more time is speeding away from me. LOL. Yes, things cannot go on as they are. This has been clear to me for a long time. What is unclear though is how to meet my needs and achieve my goals when so many attempts toward this end literally led nowhere. Well, one thing is for sure – we cannot force our way, yet we also cannot give up, but have to keep trying and working on resolutions. Eventually, we might succeed.
A HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOU! MAY IT BRING MUCH JOY AND SUCCESS AND MORE GOOD TIMES!
