A semi-sextile between Mercury in Taurus and Eris in Aries shows that we have to deal with the issue of competition, even
with poor or selfish attitudes, and therefore need to adjust our mentality accordingly. With Ceres in Cancer in trine aspect to Chiron in Pisces, we not only celebrate Mother’s Day, when we are reminded of the nurturing and supporting qualities the maternal principle provides, but also reached a point in our development, where we can find it within us to empathize with the human condition and contribute to healing by bridging difficult situations with caring and compassion.
Tarot card of the day is the “5 of Pentacles”, which comes with the message ‘it is darkest before dawn’. As we’re experiencing a time of hardship, of feeling less than secure, left out and impoverished – either material or spiritual – we need to understand that there is hope of better days ahead. We’re on a pilgrimage or a long journey, which can be taken as an act of faith or devotion and all we need is to find the inner fortitude to persist in our quest and bolster ourselves, while resisting the temptation to succumb to spiritual poverty. No matter how bleak or destitute the situation seems to us, we have to maintain our faith and don’t give up. It is time to move on and to let us be guided by our soul’s light or inner shining star.
