Since the Moon’s ingress to Scorpio at 2:38 am EDT have we been undergoing a process of emotional renewal through the
‘cleansing’ of our psyche and the recharging of our batteries. As the Sun meets Jupiter in Gemini and then moves on to form a semi-sextile with Ceres in Cancer, who is also engaged in a sesqui-quadrate with retrograde Chiron in Pisces, path and purpose come together in new ways as we see our life in a different light and view our role in long-term perspective in this context. Therefore, we start a new sub-cycle that contains the potential of greater self-realization and –extension for us through optimization of our options and more variety in life experiences. This requires that we support our growth by coming to terms with our sense of Self and traits we need to develop in this regard. It is particularly important that we take care of our unfinished business and get past issues that keep us trapped in closed circuits or confined in victimizing circumstances from which we cannot seem to escape. With Mars in Gemini square retrograde Chiron in Pisces, we are challenged to leave our “cave” behind and do something about our situation. Consequently, we have to walk our talk, instead of waiting for things to happen and suffering when they do not. We have to stop dreaming and get moving or going. Venus in Cancer’s sesqui-quadrate to retrograde Neptune in Pisces urges us to overcome an overwhelming sense of disappointment, lack or loss through the nurturing of and caring for our values, bonds and desires.
Tarot card of the day is the “6 of Swords”, which indicates a slight reduction in stress and strain. Things will be better than they were in the recent past, all of which is helpful to get our head above water. The bottom has been reached and the process of healing has begun. There is finality in this journey. The future is not yet visible, but the past is definitely over. We’re moving away from turbulence toward calmer times and will need to make a transition that is better for us in the long-term.
