together with her sesqui-quadrate

challenge us to overcome habitual patterns underlying our personal beliefs, concepts and principles, we’ve been struggling with in the past in our interactions with others, which would require that we review the strategies we employ to serve our own ends and also the excuses we use to justify selfish tendencies and single-minded approaches or attitudes.

Tarot card of the day is the “6 of Swords”, which indicates a slight reduction in stress and strain.

There is finality in this journey. The future is not yet visible, but the past is definitely over. We’re moving away from turbulence toward calmer times and will need to make a transition that is better for us in the long-term.
