The last couple of days have been crazy busy at work. I could really feel the built-up to the Aquarius Full Moon. Things have been chaotic and routines got interrupted constantly, leaving everybody exhausted and on edge. At the peak of the heatwave I had to set up my airconditioner, realizing that they didn’t cool the building this summer. And then I came home yesterday afternoon to a broken fridge. The maintenance guy provided me with a new one. However, it doesn’t’ fit in the corner. So, this story isn’t over yet and the same is true for the situation at work. With Juno in Virgo holding a square to retrograde Pallas in Sagittarius we are strategically challenged, having to review our approach until we can work things out in our dealings with others. This means we’ll have to keep trying in spite of the problems and setbacks and we have to figure out how to best handle everything and be efficient so that we can get the job done. Therefore, it is necessary that we focus on cooperation and are fair during this time of crisis, even if we have to compromise our own agenda. The needs of the many outweigh our personal dramas; the greater good takes priority. Consequently, once Venus will be moving back into Leo, where she will be traversing until October 8, we have a chance to review our personal values, finances and relationships and also the way we validate and love ourselves, in particular in the manner we express our personal needs, wants and desires. As the Cancer New Moon culminates, the impulses that sounded forth with the Aquarian New Moons on January 20 and February 18 have also reached their full potential. Thus, ‘the woman and the two men cast away on a small island of the South Sea’ (Sabian Symbol for the Cancer New Moon) have become ‘beautifully gowned wax figures on display’ (Sabian Symbol for the Aquarius Full Moon) – ‘interdependence as the focalization of complex inner potentialities in harmonic and concrete relationships’ (keynote of the Sabian Symbol for the Cancer New Moon) finds expression in people or personages who are the ‘exemplars of a new culture’ (keynote of the Sabian Symbol for the Aquarius Full Moon), ‘concretizing an ideal’ (keynote of the Sabian Symbol for the Aqua NM from Jan. 20) that is ‘revolutionary’ as well as ‘community-oriented’ (Sabian Symbol and keynote for the Leo Sun). ‘Totality of Being’ (keynote of the Sabian Symbol for the Aqua NM from Feb. 18) is achieved through ‘catabolic action as a prelude to a new type of order’ (keynote of the Sabian Symbol for the Leo Sun).
The Sabian Symbol for the Full Moon at 7:55 Aqua states:
“Beautifully gowned wax figures on display. Keynote: The inspiration one may derive from the appearance of exemplars who represent to us the archetypes of a new culture – PREFORMATION.”
The Sabian Symbol for the Sun at 7:55 Leo states:
“A communist activist spreading his revolutionary ideals. Keynote: The emotional and ideological attempt to return to a state of non-differentiation and chaos as a prelude to a new type of order – CATABOLIC ACTION.”

Tarot card of the day is the “8 of Wands”, representing a very focused kind of motion and activity, a time when we need to strike while the iron is hot. It encourages us to move quickly to pursue the best opportunities available right now. The notion is to MOVE ON as things are proceeding quickly.
