Today, Pallas in Taurus perfects her semi-sextile to Eris in Aries, whereas Venus in Gemini forms a quincunx to retrograde Saturn in Scorpio and a semi-square to Eris. This shows a strategic adjustment away from our usual way of approaching and participating in the competitive world out there toward a more self-determined and involved manner by being proactively engaged in the promotion of our self-interests. As we’re rising over the situation due to a strengthened position, we feel compelled to bring our authentic Self to the fore, while at the same time emulating proven and successful tactics that appeal to us in order to have our objectives met. Mercury in Taurus forms a semi-square to Ceres in Cancer before he makes ingress to his home sign of Gemini at 4:41 pm EDT, where he will be traversing until May 31. We’re undergoing a critical phase in our mental development, where we need to rely on our support system and foster commitment at the beginning of a period that calls for flexibility and adaptability, as well as mental dexterity and versatility, when we deal with a greater variety of people and even make new connections, are more verbal about our thoughts and ideas and also more inclined to see both sides or several angles of an issue. Information flow and exchange is usually quick during this time and should keep us busy as well as mobile. After the Moon’s ingress to Leo at 6:37 pm EDT will we feel more confident, centered and proud of our role or performance.
Tarot card of the day is “The Hierophant”, representing traditional values and moral development. This card is suggesting that we stay within conventional bounds and follow established social structures and traditions. There is a need to conform to rules or fixed situations and to go along with the program. We are working as part of a team and are doing the right thing. This concerns especially the bridging of the earthly and divine, which can be achieved by using our situation or particular circumstances to transcend as yet unevolved aspects of ourselves. A gateway to higher consciousness is open for us today that allows us to access the sacred as we try to understand the inner world.
