As 2 approaching aspects from yesterday reach perfection today – Ceres in Virgo’ssesqui-quadrate to retrograde Eris in Aries and Mars in Leo’s quincunx to retrograde Chiron in Pisces, the additional aspects, which are transpiring, are completing the picture. Venus in Scorpio forms a trine to retrograde Neptune in Pisces and a square to retrograde Juno in Aquarius. Mars in Leo trines retrograde Uranus in Aries, while Mercury in Libra semi-sextiles the Saturn-North Node conjunction in Scorpio (quincunx South Node in Taurus) and squares retrograde Pluto in Capricorn. Thus, as we are feeling the pressure to work something out for the sake of our self-interests, we adjust our approach in such a way that we can move past certain difficulties we’ve been struggling with and which have been hurting our confidence. Therefore, after we reviewed our ideals and expectations in complex and complicated material and relationship affairs, we succeeded with reversing a trend, where the odds were against us, and are now challenged to reform our relationship principle based on this, rearranging and reformulating terms and conditions to suit shared values, while putting up a united front in order to have more control and influence in these matters in the future.
Tarot card of the day is the “7 of Swords”, emphasizing a need to remain focused, keep distractions at a minimum, sustain an effort and pour energy into our projects. We could be working in an unstable way, using evasive tactics or escaping from the situation somehow. Awareness of an irritated, distracted, restless or bored mentality is imperative. In order to succeed we must accept that we might require regular stimulus and change or our efforts might be futile. If something doesn’t work out as planned or expected, we need to stretch our mind and look for an alternative. In addition, we could be facing serious relationship issues, where it is best to avoid any confrontation, but to employ tact and diplomacy instead. Moreover, we need to be honest and upfront in all our dealings and at the same time be cautious and wary as to who we trust.
