With the Sun in Sagittarius in semi-sextile aspect to Pluto in Capricorn and Vesta in Libra in semi-sextile aspect to the North Node in Scorpio, we’re making the necessary adjustments to be able to manage our affairs with an increased and growing understanding of our role in the larger scheme of things and thus, dedicate us toward our transformed life direction and evolving future prospects. The Moon made ingress to Sagittarius early this morning at 1:31 am EST and is now heading toward conjunction with the Sun to ‘usher in’ a new lunar cycle in the sign of the archer.
The Sabian Symbol for the New Moon at 10:59 Sagittarius that will transpire at 7:22 pm EST states:
“In the left section of an archaic temple a lamp burns in a container shaped like a human body. Keynote: The value of the ‘return to the body’ advocated by modern thinkers in order to balance the stress on intellectuality and objective consciousness – RELYING UPON ORGANISMIC RESPONSES.”
(Dane Rudhyar, “An Astrological Mandala: The Cycle of Transformations and its 360 Symbolical Phases”, Page 216)
Implied by this symbolical picture is the hidden influence of subconscious patterns we’re ‘worshipping’ – or in other words conditioned patterns of thinking and evaluating – in our decision-making process, which is re-emphasized in Mercury in Scorpio’s semi-square to Ceres in Libra that shows a times of crisis in regard to our ability to properly assess our nurturing needs based on psychic factors that keep us vacillating and manipulated by unresolved inner conflicts. Therefore, it is important that we become aware of our dilemma and strive for concord and reconciliation of these contradictions.
Tarot card of the day is the “2 of Swords”, representing a delicate balance. We may feel as though we have reached an impasse or even a stalemate. What is needed is a truce so that the problems we’re dealing with can be resolved using logic and the intellect, especially if we don’t know how to proceed. It’s a card of choice that could require from us to make a split decision. There is a sense of being caught between a rock and a hard place, which could make decision-making difficult or, on the other hand, could have us torn by indecision or opposing choices. Awareness of the consequences of our decisions is therefore imperative. However, resolutions will be found and a new beginning is arising out of this.
