The Sun in Gemini’s square to Chiron in Pisces challenges us to become aware of the role we play in regard to the wounding
and healing principle that’s operating in our life and thus how our self-image or perception of Self together with our ‘self-undoing’ (when we tend to shoot ourselves in the foot) is shaping and informing these themes or issues. Per example, as this aspect was forming yesterday night, I chatted briefly with my girlfriend on skype, sharing the incident with my flattened tire with her, thereby admitting that I felt like ‘being caught in the act’ when a police car stopped to help me. This is based on a feeling of guilt, stemming from my self-image as a lousy and inexperienced driver, who shouldn’t have a license in the first place, coupled with a deeply ingrained ‘inferiority complex’, which feeds into a ‘victim consciousness’, resulting in me thinking in this case that I was to blame for what had happened and might get fined (punished) as a consequence. This came to light when we talked about it (it was addressed) and my girlfriend gave me a different perspective as she of course couldn’t relate to this (my) way of thinking. With Venus in Cancer engaged in a tense sesqui-quadrate aspect to the North Node in Scorpio (semi-square South Node in Taurus), it is critical that we closely examine these complex issues as we seek to influence our future prospects and gain control over our circumstances. Therefore, we need to nurture and foster a sense of self-worth with the help of our inherited and accumulated assets, talents and resources. After the Moon’s ingress to Taurus at 11:53 am EDT will we feel more in touch with our personal security needs, our sensibilities and physical senses.
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 day 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.
