With the Moon’s ingress into Virgo at 6:43 am EDT did we roll up our sleeves and readied ourselves to tackle our tasks, knowing that we have our work cut out for us. Mercury in Virgo’s semi-square to Saturn in Scorpio on which he follows up with a quincunx to retrograde Eris in Aries and a semi-sextile to Venus in Libra, who in turn faces off with the former, together with another opposition between Mars in Leo and retrograde Juno in Aquarius, urge us to intensify our sense of structure and authority in order to be able to keep up with our schedule and carry out our plans. Therefore and for the sake of our self-interests, we have to adjust our daily routine in such a way that it complements our priorities. This requires that we reconcile conflicts we encounter and restore our inner peace, especially in relationship situations where we could experience confrontation and indifference or feel divided in regard to how to react and proceed.
Tarot card of the day is “The Emperor”, symbolizing the masculine principle, the animus within us and the patriarchy. This card is representative of structure and stability and thus implies that we’re creating order out of chaos by mapping out what needs to be done, sticking with the plan and seeing it through to its completion. We have to be highly organized and coordinated in our approach and must maintain our concentration and focus. Moreover, we need to become or bring forth our own authority and know that we can master our world.
