Determined to push our agenda, we show attitude and competitiveness. Therefore, it is important to beaware of our expectations and projections. After Venus’ ingress to Gemini a sub-period begins during which we feel more inclined to think about and communicate our values and worth and be more flexible, adaptable and easy-going in our interactions with others, with the handling of our possessions and talents and also what our priorities and preferences concerns. Consequently, we make an adjustment in regard to how we approach our affairs in order to be able to gain more influence in these matters. This is the lead-up to the ‘crisis in consciousness’ that challenges us to control our impulses, especially the rather instinctive ones, if we want to achieve our ends.
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.
