Mercury made ingress to Leo at 8:12 am EDT this morning, where he will be traversing until August 23. This corresponds to a time when we focus our attention and concentrate on our creativity, self-expression and performance, and also on enjoyment, play and personal plans, communication and connections. With Venus in Virgo engaged in a tense semi-square to Saturn in Scorpio, it is critical that we intensify our sense of structure, authority and control and influence conditions so that they serve our wants and needs. Therefore, a quincunx between Pallas in Cancer and retrograde Juno in Aquarius requires from us to adjust our habits and traditional approach to changed relationship dynamics.
Tarot card of the day is the Queen of Cups, symbolizing a seeker of inner transformation who possesses a strong perspective and perceptive nature. Suggested is furthermore that we are acknowledging our emotions and feelings and validating our moods. We trust our intuition and listen our inner voice as well as the sensations and impressions we’re getting from our environment. In our interactions with others we need to empathize and show true compassion, helping people along their chosen pathway. This is a day when we’ll be following the lead of our heart.
