The Sun in Taurus’ opposition to retrograde Saturn in Scorpio confronts us with an inner conflict as situations are getting
more complex and complicated, which provides the necessary trigger that compels us out of a state of complacency. With Venus in Taurus engaged in a semi-square to Vesta in Cancer, then passing over the South Node (opposition to North Node in Scorpio) and moving in a semi-sextile aspect with Jupiter in Gemini, we feel the pressure of personal causes that need to be taken care of, of destiny as yet unfulfilled, though within grasp and of new possibilities and options we’re sensing in this regard, all of which requires an effort on our part to be able to ensure and secure our values and assets.
Tarot card of the day is the “Page of Wands”, suggesting news related to business or otherwise and a positive awareness of the future or ‘to expect the unexpected’. There are new possibilities, which demand from us to be courageous and daring as we rediscover purpose. This card represents ‘a new dawn’ that is a new beginning of a phase in which the creative spark must be developed and given a new lease on life, calling upon us to express ourselves from our heart. It’s a day to be positive and spontaneous as well as lively and energetic, when we should pursue our creative vision with enthusiasm.
Personal Notes: Things have indeed taken on a life of their own since the Lunar Eclipse, causing me to feel a bit ‘burdened’ by all the obligations and tasks I have to fulfill. Even worse, now that we finally have nice, warm weather, I couldn’t go outside on a walk as my maternal family connections kept me busy on the phone. So, I might have to take pen and paper with me should I find the time to stroll through the area this afternoon.
