Mercury in Aquarius engages in a tense semi-square with Pluto in Capricorn and a trine with the North Node – (sextile South Node in Aries) Vesta (Rx) conjunction in Libra, urging us to keep our focus on our immediate affairs instead of allowing our mind to be distracted by all kinds of vibes buzzing around us or irritated by controversial information. Anticipating a certain set of circumstances, we have to get organized and prepare our surroundings and moves accordingly. Also, it is important to resist temptations to just throw the towel in the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles. If we remain open to fresh input and inspiration, we will eventually succeed. Thus, we align our attitude together with our schedule or daily plans with our destined life’s direction, making sure we covered all our bases in regard to our future prospects and reassume relationship rituals, which celebrate our special connections and ties, while giving us a chance to bring the past back to life, one way or another, with new determination and rekindled dedication. This leads us into the Virgo Full Moon at 1:08 pm EDT that is in semi-sextile (quincunx from Pisces Sun) aspect to retrograde Mars in Libra, indicating that this climax requires an adjustment in motivation and drive so that our reassessed actions and re-evaluated initiatives complement the occasion and moment of revelation that could present us with a solution to a mystery (Virgo-Pisces opposition) or at least with a method or a clue in regard to a matter of uncertainty and unknowing or even desperation. As the impulse that sounded forth with the Pisces New Moon on March 1 culminates together with the one seeded back at the time of the Virgo New Moon on September 5, 2013, ‘the men traveling a narrow path, seeking illumination’ (Sabian Symbol of the Pisces New Moon) are now seeing ‘the light of fulfillment’, reflected by the illuminated harvest moon’ (Sabian Symbol of the Pisces Sun), whereas the ‘aristocratic family tree’ (Sabian Symbol of the Virgo New Moon) is perpetuated by ‘a group of aristocratic Ladies’ (Sabian Symbol of the Virgo Full Moon).
The Sabian Symbol for the Full Moon at 26:01 Virgo states:
“A group of aristocratic Ladies meet ceremonially at a court’s function. Keynote: The ability to carry on a revered tradition in order to perpetuate cultural standards of excellence – REFINEMENT.”
The Sabian Symbol for the Sun at 26:01 Pisces states:
“The harvest moon illuminates a clear autumnal sky. Keynote: The light of fulfillment that blesses work well done – CONSUMMATION.”

Implied by these symbolical pictures is the need to carry on (or ‘walk on’ – keyword of the Sabian Symbol for the Pisces New Moon) in spite of having exhausted all venues or so it seems to us. However, an opposition is a confrontation and in this case we have to face up to the question ‘have we really done everything in our might or power’(aristocracy)? The Sabian Symbol for the Pisces New Moon stated that we ‘are traveling a narrow path’ (seeking illumination) that might have led us ‘nowhere’. Are we going to turn around and give up (Pisces) or are we going to try harder and do a better job (‘refinement‘) until we’ve figured it out (Virgo)?
An excellent example of this situation/experience is the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH 370
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.
