A quincunx from the Sun in Gemini to the North Node in Scorpio (semi-sextile South Node in Taurus) shows a
choice or personal adjustment we made in regard to our future prospects now that we’re seeing our situation in a different light, based on our evaluation of new information we received. Neptune stationed retrograde at 5:22 Pisces at 4:24 am EDT this morning and will retrace his steps to 2:34 Pisces, where he will turn direct on November 13. This corresponds to a period when we reflect upon our ideals and review our vision and expectations. As Venus in Cancer takes the place of Mercury to complete another Grand Trine configuration in water with Neptune Rx in Pisces and Saturn Rx in Scorpio, Mars and Pallas perfect their conjunction in Gemini and square off with retrograde Neptune and thus form a quincunx to retrograde Saturn. Meanwhile, Mercury in Cancer has moved into an opposition with retrograde Pluto in Capricorn. Consequently, while we’re awaiting an end to all this shaping and shifting, uncertainties remain and the assessment of our private base – whether this concerns our home, family, country or our sense of belonging – is not very promising or hopeful, even though we can rely on certain sources for support. Things are far from being perfect or ideal. We just have to take them in strides or shift gear entirely. As intentions and politics come together, we need to become aware of all the different sides to a story and our own projections into the reality picture. Perception is tricky. Even if it seems that there’s nothing we can do but to surrender under these circumstances, we need to realize this is only a momentary and fleeting impression. In fact, things change all the time and life goes on. Therefore, we have to confront our inner demons, be resilient and resourceful and remember those times in the past when we were less afraid and more determined and thus, were able to master our circumstances.
Tarot card of the day is the “9 of Pentacles”, suggesting that we’re exercising self-control and reining in impulses. We’re pursuing refinement, remembering to be gracious and enjoying ourselves. Self-sufficiency is indicated. In fact, we might be falling back on our own resources. Continuing success will come through foresight and good planning as we focus on our very specific aims.
