Mars in Aries perfects his sextile to Jupiter in Gemini and his semi-sextile to Chiron in Pisces and moves on to square Pluto in Capricorn, providing us with an opportunity to address possibilities and options with which we have to deal from a point of understanding and therefore need to approach with sensitivity to be able to propose an alternative and circumvent the problems preventing us from enacting our intentions. Therefore, even though our motivation to overcome the complications we’re presented with and to remove the blocks in our way is strong, we cannot push our head through the wall. This is a struggle in which we can only succeed if we don’t force the issue, but organize or manage it from a place of inner strength and resolve. After the Moon’s ingress to Libra at 5:31 pm EDT will we feel more inclined toward negotiating, compromising and accommodating as we seek to interact and reach agreements.
Tarot card of the day is the “5 of Swords”, suggesting that we’re dealing with mixed feelings about life in general and experiencing conflict or discord – inner as well as outer. The more important is it to pick our battles wisely and think before we act. There are boundaries and limitations in life situations we must accept, even though they could make us feel powerless. In this regard, we must overcome ourselves and focus on our needs in order to regain our composure. On the other hand, this card can indicate victory or achievement, which has been well-deserved and long-awaited, but only if we don’t give in to defeat.
