Mercury in Taurus casts a quincunx to retrograde Vesta inLibra on which he follows up with an opposition to retrograde Saturn in Scorpio. As a consequence, we adjust our routine or usual schedule to relationship commitments or social causes, which came up again for re-evaluation and this requires from us to review conflicting timetables and shared responsibilities so that we can balance our energy investments without depleting ourselves of those sources. Instead, we want to be able to have a certain lifestyle or quality of life and that’s what we need to focus on as we reconsider these matters. Venus will make ingress to Aries at 9:21 pm EDT, where she will be traversing until May 28, which corresponds to a period when we take action and start initiatives in matters that concern our personal values and attachments together with our assets, resources, talents, wellbeing and sense of self-worth. Therefore, we will be more determined in regard to our priorities and preferences and respond with strong feelings and more self-love.
Tarot card of the day is the “10 of Swords”, suggesting that we may feel victimized and powerless or just ‘dead tired’ and exhausted, wishing for a clean break from a stressful issue. However, this is the final ordeal, presenting us with a confrontation of the sum total of our thoughts and outcome of mental processes. Thus, a reorientation or gaining of perspective might ensue and things might get better from now on. It is important though to let go off negative attitudes and to accept our current circumstances. Something is coming to end and change is impending. The worst is over and the only way is up.
