Mercury in Cancer, who enters his shadow period today, forms a trine with Chiron in Pisces, bringing some realizations in regard to a trouble- and worrisome situation. As a consequence, we might be able to pour our heart out or release some of our hurt feelings by connecting with others who can stand in our shoes and on whom we can count for support. However, we might have to return to this theme time and again during this period until we’ve learnt to deal with it on our own and can move past it. The perfection of Vesta in Cancer’s quincunx to Juno in Aquarius shows an adjustment in our relationship principle as a result. Our relationships are changing and so does our role in these dynamics. We can’t rely any longer on commitments made in the past or depend on others in the way we used to or have become accustomed to. It is important that we understand our life is our responsibility and therefore renew our sense of structure. Indicated by the Sun in Gemini’s sesqui-quadrate to retrograde Saturn in Scorpio is the necessity for review of our personal circumstances, which includes the removal of inner blocks, such as fears and phobias, to be able to face the outer obstacles.
Tarot card of the day is “The Chariot”, suggesting that we take control and move forward with care. There is a need to remain focused and to keep the emotions in check. We need to harness our energy and apply it wisely. Self-discipline is important to be able to balance the light and shadow aspects of our personality.
