With Mercury’s tense aspects to the nodal axis today, the annual fire inspection for our building here is scheduled for this morning. This task has to be carried out to ensure our safety and wellbeing (Taurus) and also because we recently had 2 fire alarms (SN in Aries). I will also fill out a maintenance request to have my window screen in the bedroom replaced to keep insects out now that I can finally open my windows, because it’s getting warmer outside. In addition to that, I have my usual household chores to do – baking, cooking, cleaning and laundry. Later tonight, I will meet with my daughter on Skype for our weekly chat we had to postpone, because she worked on Saturday and had other plans for Sunday. After the Moon’s ingress to Virgo will I prepare myself mentally and emotionally for my work week. So, it’s just one of these days filled with a regular schedule intended to have everything ready and arranged for the week ahead for me (Merc in Taurus in aspect to the nodal axis), which means I will stay at home all day and take care of the household (6 of Cups). And indeed, the weather is not nice enough to change my mind about my agenda – it’s overcast and cold here. Meanwhile, on the world stage, the death toll after the Nepalese earthquake is still rising and the royal baby is still not delivered.
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.
