The Third Quarter Moon
of the Leo lunation cycle transpired this morning at 5:34 am EDT
. As the waning Gemini Moon squared the Virgo Sun, the accompanying crisis in consciousness
tested our objectivity amidst controversy and diversity to choose from, thereby challenging us to demonstrate our stuff, in particular what our ideas and perception of facts and statements concerns (demonstration was the keyword of the Sabian Symbol for the Leo New Moon). Ceres
made ingress to Virgo at 6:18 am EDT
, where she will be traversing until November 3, which corresponds to a period when we seek to improve and perfect the maternal principle in our life, or at least to make it more effective and better functioning or working out for us. With Vesta in Leo
involved in a sesqui-quadrate
to retrograde Pluto in Capricorn
, who also receives a trine
from Mercury in Virgo
, it is critical that we access our inner power and potential and show resourcefulness together with competence while handling our affairs. Moreover, we need to commit us wholeheartedly to the things we hold sacred and keep this fire burning now that we finally established a platform for our ideas and plans. A sextile
from Mercury in Virgo
to the North Node in Scorpio
(trine South Node in Taurus)
suggests that we can continue using this for future projects.
Tarot card of the day is the “Ace of Swords”, indicating a new way of thinking or the conception of an idea or the start of a new project. Our mental powers have been awakened and we’re seeing through illusions, cutting through the confusion, dispelling doubts, finding out the facts, thinking our way through or championing a cause. It’s a time of great insight and mental clarity, which could result in a break-through or aha-moment as well as a greater understanding.
Personal Notes: Yesterday evening I started recording a short video to share my experiences and impressions of the day with you. Since I’ve been on the computer for most of the day I thought I might as well give this a shot. However, in the middle of it I got interrupted by somebody I’m connected with on Facebook, who kept constantly mailing me and then I heard from yet more people. So, I had to leave it at that as I wasn’t able anymore to concentrate my thoughts and focus on what I was trying to convey. It was such a typical Third Quarter Moon experience – all the attempts to put things into perspective and context and at first it seemed as though the whole undertaking was futile and just a waste of my time, but now it looks as though we’re getting closer to our goals and that things are on an upward swing.
