The Sun in Cancer’s sesqui-quadrate to the North Node in Scorpio (semi-square South Node in Taurus) urges us to take care of our evolving future prospects instead of side-stepping fundamental aspects, which would lead to our empowerment. Therefore, we need to be able to depend ourselves and finalize these last steps we’ve been putting off, before it is too late or else we keep trapped in unproductive patterns. It is critical that we become more self-reliant as well as resourceful than we were in the past if we want to support and help ourselves. Ceres made ingress to Leo, where she will be traversing until August 28, at 8:10 am EDT this morning. This energy shift corresponds to a period of personal or self-focused ‘mothering’, when we express the maternal principle in creative, self-centered or self-affirming ways and are self-supportive as well as committed to our self-development and growth. As Venus meets Vesta in Cancer, desires and dedication come together in a nurturing manner and a new sub-cycle begins during which we have a chance to devote us to our values, talents, possessions and relationships, sustain, cultivate and foster them, while providing for our material and emotional security needs and pouring our heart into our personal causes.
