Writing a delayed blog post yesterday evening was the challenge I encountered when retrogradeMercury in Aquarius squared Saturn in Scorpio. In my personal horoscope, he moved on – or rather back – to square my natal Sun in Scorpio from house 6 (health, work) to house 3 (meeting, communication) today and I not only felt tired and unfocused since I had to get up in the morning, but I got also ‘scolded’ for a compliance issue we discussed at the Health and Safety meeting at work – however, my co-workers and team members appealed “to not have me thrown under the bus” for ‘having pulled my weight’ in the backroom last Friday (Mercury Rx). After this has been addressed I might be able to count on some help next time. In any case, it has been made clear to others that there’s zero tolerance in this regard and that non compliance will lead to immediate termination. With Vesta conjunct the North Node in the last degree of Libra, we’re ‘ueber’ dedicated to get on the same page and having things run smoothly. For some, it might feel like a last chance to get it right. As Venus in Capricorn engaged in tense octile aspects with retrograde Pallas in Virgo (sesqui-quadrate) and Neptune in Pisces (semi-square), these reviewed politics and policies could have come across as harsh and undeserving and could have caught us unprepared and defenseless (there could have also been rude comments) with the effect that we might have our guard up now. After the Moon’s ingress to Scorpio at 10:32 pm EST will we seek to regenerate and replenish.
Tarot card of the day is the “Queen of Pentacles”, representing an aspect of ourselves or others that is concerned about economic security and the promotion of physical wellbeing. We’re not only tending for ourselves, but also for our possessions. This involves being practical and capable in business affairs, in particular what effective management concerns, where we need to employ down-to-earth common sense and help things to flourish. Putting duty first, we use our resourcefulness to provide stability, to safeguard and to preserve.
