Mercury forms his third conjunction with Chiron in Pisces (1st conjunction was on February 10th during direct motion, 2nd
conjunction was on March 8 during retrograde motion) and then moves into the perfecting Jupiter-Pluto quincunx with a square and a sextile, respectively. This marks the starting over of a new synodic cycle, which beginnings have been delayed or ‘circumvented’ due to a reviewing phase during which we reflected on impressions and perceptions we received related to the wounding and healing principle in our life. These might have been wrong, deceiving, misguiding or premature or we might just have been missing a piece of information, input or feedback. Now that we’ve come back to this point, we have to make a decision regarding conflicting options and possibilities we have, neither of which might seem an ideal solution, but in order to be able to manage our affairs and reach common ground we have to sacrifice some aspects of our grand plan and go with the flow, setting an end to a situation that has been a source of pain and problems. Therefore, as this new cycle will unfold, we might come to the understanding that nothing has to be final, because things will always shape and shift again. In fact, when one door closes another one opens. Consequently, we just have to adapt and adjust accordingly, knowing that it is in our power to succeed anyway – one way or another – depending on we deal with it, while learning to work with these conditions.
Tarot card of the day is the “Ace of Swords”, indicating a new way of thinking or the conception of an idea or the start of a new project. Our mental powers have been awakened and we’re seeing through illusions, cutting through the confusion, dispelling doubts, finding out the facts, thinking our way through or championing a cause. It’s a time of great insight and mental clarity, which could result in a break-through or aha-moment as well as a greater understanding.
