Since the Moon’s ingress to Gemini at 2:13 am EST and instant square to Neptune in Pisces we’ve been feeling more easy-going, chatty and social, but needed some time for sleep and rest first. Mars makes ingress to Aquarius at 7:48 pm EST, where he will be traversing until February 2, 2013, which corresponds to a period when we change, upgrade or reform our modus operanti and when inspiration together with genius stimulate our intentions, while we mobilize our will to work for progress and individualization. As Mars in Aquarius is approaching a semi-sextile to Neptune in Pisces right away, our action urge has to be adjusted to higher ideals, at least for these next few days when we all come together in the ‘spirit’ of the season and should be motivated accordingly, which is even more important now that Mars is in mutual reception with Uranus in Aries. The latter receives a square from the Sun in Capricorn, which is testing us to the core, demanding self-discipline and control from us to be able to behave and obey the rules, instead of bringing forth our rebellious or nonconformistic streak and other inappropriate tendencies. Rather, in order to stand out and show what we are made of, should we demonstrate that we’re well-organized and self-sufficient as well as capable of managing the “chaos”, because we could also encounter new trends or changes and surprises we aren’t prepared for. With Mercury in Sagittarius engaged in a trine to retrograde Eris in Aries we have the right attitude to excel at whatever we set our mind on and thus can ‘score high’.
Tarot card of the day is “The Emperor”, symbolizing the masculine principle, the animus within us and the patriarchy. This card is representative of structure and stability and thus implies that we’re creating order out of chaos by mapping out what needs to be done, sticking with the plan and seeing it through to its completion. We have to be highly organized and coordinated in our approach and must maintain our concentration and focus. Moreover, we need to become or bring forth our own authority and know that we can master our world.
Personal Note: Interesting that I drew this card for today as I’m on my way to work where we have to create order out of chaos and prepare the store for tomorrow’s big Boxing Day event. After that I’ll be stopping by at my daughter’s place for the Christmas dinner and to exchange the gifts and then call it an early night, because I’ll have to be there, “where the action is”, tomorrow morning right at the opening. Enjoy the festivities and Merry Christmas!
