The mood has shifted overnight. Thus, with the Moon now in Cancer we’re seeking out nurturance and thewarmth and safety of our homes. However, before we could sit down and enjoy ourselves, we had some errands to run, took care of still outstanding obligations, covered our bases and prepared our environment for the event or weekend, which required from us to review and alter our plans. Consequently, a new sub-cycle began today during which we have a chance to get more in tune with the flow of things as well as inspired toward bridging our difficulties and differences, especially when we react to problematic and unresolved issues. Ideally, we’re also motivated to work things out and help each other. On the other hand, we could be more inclined to try avoiding conflict or any action at all or could be continuing to sacrifice hostages and innocents in acts of violence and ignorance to inflict hurt and pain upon others, such as the beheadings carried out by ISIS.
Tarot card of the day is the “4 of Pentacles”, emphasizing a need for practicality and solid foundations, which requires that we learn to control our environment and take command over our life. We want to be in charge over our circumstances, build up our life, hold onto what we achieved so far and also reach for our goals. Therefore, we have to set limits and rules, don’t give in to any weaknesses and create order where it is needed. This card moreover urges us to let go off anxiety and count our blessings. Our situation is not as bad as we fear.
