Astro-Notes on September 15, 2013 – keeping our cool

A quincunx from the Sun in Virgo to retrograde Eris in Aries together with another one from Mercury in Libra to retrograde Chiron in Pisces show adjustments we made today in the way we express ourselves routinely and seek Self-realization through service and in the manner we respond to and deal with antagonism and the wounding and healing principle in general. Ceres in Virgo’s sextile to the Saturn-North Node conjunction in Scorpio (trine South Node in Taurus) offers us opportunities for improvement, empowerment and gain if we take advantage of the situation and support efficient and practical solutions now that we finally can put a worrying issue behind us. Since the Moon’s ingress to Aquarius this morning at 8:05 am EDT has the pace accelerated for us and we’ve been undergoing chaotic, irritating and distressing experiences. The more important is it under these circumstances to apply foresight, remain emotionally detached and keep our cool.

Tarot card of the day was “The Hermit”, suggesting that we’ve entered a stage of introspection, where we needed to look for the answers within, thereby engaging in soul searching. It’s a solitary quest, because the truths we’re seeking do not lie in the external world, but within us. Therefore, we begin to re-evaluate our goals and might change our overall direction. In recognizing that each of our thoughts and actions is a brick we use to build our lives, we partake in the creation of our own reality. We have to find the light within and allow ourselves to be touched and illuminated by it as well as help to light the way for others. Alas, all the darkness that seems to surround us cannot blot out the light. Moreover, there is an emphasis on peace and patience as well as on accepting the limitations of time and age. The Hermit also symbolizes a taskmaster, who leads with purpose and wisdom gathered from years of experience. He furthermore represents completion. Thus, we may well be progressing to a new stage of life, but need to remove any difficulties from a current situation in order to make progress.
