Together with the Sagittarius lunation cycle culminates the impulse that sounded forth with the Gemini New Moon on May 28. Consequently, ‘perpetuation’ will be achieved through ‘objectivity’, not insistence on personal truth, as the ‘revolt against privileges’ brings out the ‘shadow’ and thus reveals the ‘prospective’ of the future if we continue this way. Therefore, a channel for communication has to be opened so that things can be talked out and evaluated or assessed from different angles. It is critical that folks come down to earth from their trip or high horse and that we seek to expand our nurturing principle and also our connectedness to our larger or social circle by showing respect and tolerance instead of ignorance and righteousness.
The Sabian Symbol for the Full Moon at 14:17 Gemini states:
“Two Dutch children talking to each other, exchanging their knowledge. Keynote: The need to clarify one’s experiences through actual contacts with like-minded individuals – OBJECTIVITY.”
The Sabian Symbol for the Sun at 14:17 Sagittarius states:
“The ground hog looking for its shadow on Groundhog Day, February 2. Keynote: The value of anticipating new turns of events and ascertaining future prospects – PROSPECTIVE.”

Tarot card of the day is the “5 of Cups”, a card that is associated with loss, suffering and sadness. There is a lack of attainment or non-fulfillment of expected results. Thus, today is a day of emotional up and downs when we could feel disappointed, cry over spilled milk or letting go of a hope. We might be feeling regret, only seeing the negative in a situation and generally have a pessimistic outlook on things. The more important is it to focus on our higher potential and the things are still left for us to work with. Forgiveness and the ability to recover are necessary.
