Astro-Notes on July 1, 2014 – Happy Canada Day!

Juno in Gemini’s semi-square to Eris in Aries indicates that our nerves are stretched tight in a relationship situation where we encounter competition, rudeness or discord. Therefore, it is important to identify the stressors and don’t let things get out of hand if we want to ‘win’ (it’s storming here and I have to run back and forth to open and close the windows because of the way the wind is blowing). As Mercury, who has been in retrograde motion since June 7, stationed direct at 24:22 Gemini at 8:49 am EDT, ideas, plans, information and other matters of communication we reviewed can now be seen with new ‘eyes’ or from the other side/end of the matter and dealt with differently, especially what the things concerned we learnt during this period. Mercury’s shadow will extend until July 16. Venus in Gemini, who has been traveling in semi-sextile aspect with the Sun in Cancer these last few days, engages in a sesqui-quadrate to the North Node in Libra (semi-square South Node in Aries). Thus, we’re being touched by our personal sensibilities and this could trigger our anger or survival instinct and lead to quick reactions, even defensiveness. Instead of going down that road, we need to relax and take things easy to be able to enjoy this day and arrange for our future prospects. It’s Canada Day here, a holiday that should be filled with celebrations, socializing and get-togethers. So, people will show and display their version of patriotism – whether we like/enjoy it or not. In any case, we would be well advised to adapt our preferences and remain flexible, objective and light-hearted. After the Moon’s ingress to Virgo at 5:23 pm EDT will we feel ready to withdraw and prepare for the work week.

Tarot card of the day is the 6 of Cups”, suggesting that past efforts are being rewarded and pleasant or nostalgic memories are resurfacing. Past connections can serve some useful purpose. However, we need to look toward the future now and lay solid foundations in this regard. It’s important to be keenly aware of the blessings in our lives and to take some time out to enjoy the good moments, for they are special.
