Astro-Notes on June 23, 2014 – finding middle ground

Venus made ingress to Gemini this morning at 8:33 am EDT, where she will be traversing until July 18, which corresponds to a period when we are more flexible and adaptable in regard to our values, priorities, preferences and attachments. During this time, we could also be dealing with mixed feelings, voice or communicate our needs and wants more clearly, learn more or educate ourselves about finances and the material aspect of life in general and think or inform and concern ourselves more with beauty, worth and self-worth issues, validation, lifestyle and the things that brings us happiness and contentment. With the Sun in Cancer engaged in a sesqui-quadrate aspect to retrograde Saturn in Scorpio, we’re undergoing a time of crisis support-wise, when inevitable conditions necessitate that we take care of ourselves, our past and close family as we’re trying to cope with consequences, limitations and shared responsibilities and resources. While Pallas in Virgo forms a semi-square to the North Node in Libra (sesqui-quadrate South Node in Aries), retrograde Mercury in Gemini casts a trine to this point (sextile SN in Aries). Therefore, we know we have to be of service and help out as good as we can or as far as this is possible, find solutions for these problems and come up with workable strategies to be able to accommodate our future prospects, instead of struggling with politics or circumstances over which we have no control anyways. Reviewing the latest facts, data and communications we had will assist us in making the right decisions and arrangements.

Tarot card of the day is Temperance”, suggesting a need for emotional stability, which can be achieved through moderation and a commitment to sobriety. We need to find middle ground, avoid excess, foster cooperation, cleanse our body and mind, heal ourselves and recognize the flow in our life. As we observe the nature of energy, we learn how to mix the right ingredients in our own life to maintain equilibrium and see all imbalances drifting away. Instead of sweeping changes subtle shifts need to take place. With renewed energy and vigor comes the promise of new growth.

In the news:

With Venus in the last degree of Taurus and the Moon in Taurus I used the opportunity of being off work and having nice, warm weather yesterday to recover from a cold I had caught when t Venus was squaring my natal Saturn. No major aspects were formed yesterday anyway. With the ‘Knight of Swords’ as Tarot card of the day, we had a Blues- and Rib-Festival downtown, which I visited later in the afternoon once I felt better. Since my daughter stayed overnight, we went grocery shopping in the morning (here the Prince of Swords helped me to get my stuff home easily and quickly) and discussed our future plans and strategies. While out on my balcony, enjoying the Sun, I read a book – so, mental or air energy was at its peak for me. 🙂
