Retrograde Mercury in Pisces squares Vesta in Gemini before he meets up with the Sun in inferior conjunction and
the Sun in Pisces squares Vesta afterwards. Venus in Pisces also forms a square with Jupiter in Gemini and another square aspect is happening between the waning Moon in Sagittarius and the Sun in Pisces as they mark the Third Quarter Moon event at 4:52 pm EST. Consequently, as our mental faculties are receiving new vistas of inspiration and are getting impressed with a new quality of will and purpose regarding our dreams and ideals, we’re challenged to gain clarity about the things we hold sacred, especially what our commitments, causes and energy investments concerns we might have to evaluate from different angles. For a long time now have we been trying to adapt to the seemingly never ending stream of possibilities, caught in the flux and flow, which could have caused us to scatter or waste our energy and lose our path. Therefore, in order to be able to put things into perspective and acquire a sense of direction, we need to overcome the uncertainty and confusion that has led to disorientation and even dissolution of certain conditions and structures, thereby trapping us or making us into victims of our circumstances. Thus, this crisis in consciousness is asking us to reconnect with the ‘source’ within and without to become whole again (Vesta is a symbol of the spiritual flame, the ‘divine’, creative spark of life and fire that resides within us and which we need to access together with the ‘god principle’ – our spirituality, beliefs/religion or attunement to higher spheres/guides we need to pray to).
Tarot card of the day is “The Moon”, suggesting that some things are hidden from conscious view, making it necessary to look well below the surface in order to find clarity or truth. On the other hand, invisible things could be brought to the surface and unforeseen perils could be experienced. This card has moreover the potential to project fears into the present and future based on past ordeals. Repressed thoughts, images and feelings could cause overwhelming disturbances. We might be longing for sleep. It is important to remedy this for which we need to go through a purging process, thereby releasing deep memories. The Moon is a card of illusion and deception, and therefore often suggests a time when something is not as it appears, causing errors in our judgment. It is also possible that we may have lost our way and are now left to walk in the dark, guided only by our inner light and intuition. Nonetheless, we need to go on without a clear picture of where we are or where we are going.
