A new sub-cycle begins with the perfection of the Sun-Pallas conjunction in Taurus, during which we pursue a strategy aimed
at cultivating the lifestyle we want and crave, while building up practical, earthy, crafty skills or relying on ‘Earth wisdom’. One of my friends, per example, is becoming a beekeeper – she helped the man, from whom she’s learning the ‘art and science’ to separate the hives yesterday – another one has begun planting trees and learnt to build protective ‘cages’ around them. Thus, politics or tactics we used for the purpose of self-realization come to fruition. A semi-sextile from Mercury in Taurus to Jupiter in Gemini shows an adjustment of plans and schedules to a new direction or possibility based on these latest news. For instance, Bangladesh rescuers found a woman alive under the rubble of the collapsed factory after 17 days. Consequently, after the Moon’s ingress to Gemini at 5:20 pm EDT will we feel more social, bubbly and chatty.
Tarot card of the day is the “Page of Wands”, suggesting news related to business or otherwise and a positive awareness of the future, especially in regard to what the eclipse revealed, 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.
