A quincunx from Mercury in Scorpio to retrograde Eris in Aries indicates an adjustment in our thinking, especially what compulsive, subconscious and negative reactions to the inevitable concerns or other situations that involve surrender and acceptance of what we can’t control, where we start to focus on winning and set our mind accordingly and thus bring forth self-determination and –motivation. As Venus in Scorpio casts a tense sesqui-quadrate to retrograde Ceres in Cancer, it is critical to foster our own growth and take care of the things that nurture us through an assessment of our true needs and desires, which may have been buried because we pursued patterns of growth or supported developments that left us deeply dissatisfied. Reviewing these issues aids us in renewing our values.
Tarot card of the day is the “7 of Pentacles”, suggesting slow growth. The seeds have been sown, but there is no sign yet that they have germinated. Some things are moving along well and we feel hopeful about the future, while others seem to be pointless. Consequently, we are applying a long-term view and focus on sustainability of results. It’s time now to assess which of our energy investments are worth it and where we might have to change direction. Thus, we are taking stock, reflecting on our progress, questioning our choices and find out where we stand.
