Jupiter in Virgo’s trine to Pluto in Capricorn indicates that control over our circumstances has been achieved after we carried out options aimed at down-sizing, minimizing or other measures of better efficiency to manage our resources. With Jupiter’s dispositor Mercury passing over the North Node once again this is the result of a new lease, agreement or contract we entered that has the potential to turn things around, courtesy of retro Uranus in Aries to which the Libra Sun formed an opposition prior to the New Moon and Venus in Virgo a sesqui-quadrate, forcing us to make up our mind as time is running out and we have no choice but to instigate progress. Because the Sun also engaged in a quincunx to retro Chiron in Pisces and Venus in another one to retro Vesta in Aries, we experience doubts and even setbacks now after having found out a few disconcerting truths or details we missed in our evaluation of the conditions that were presented to us and this could have led to inner conflicts and struggles, which are clouding our judgment of the situation and also affecting our capability to properly handle this matter. Thus, our initial enthusiasm, excitement or joy received a damper, causing us to reassess the situation or contacting other sources for their input and change arrangements if we have to. This is the leadup to the Libra New Moon that will transpire tonight at 8:05 pm EDT and is in semi-sextile aspect to the preceding Solar Eclipse, for which the keyword was “group integration”. Therefore, the Sabian Symbol for the New Moon at 19:20 Libra states:
“A rabbi performing his duties. Keynote: The ability to draw on the power of an ancestral tradition in order to serve and inspire one’s fellow men – INHERITED WISDOM.”
(Dane Rudhyar, “An Astrological Mandala: The Cycle of Transformations and its 360 Symbolical Phases”, Page 185)
We do what is necessary and expected from us in our role and function as a member of our community, group or team in a final push or effort. In my case this means that although today is Thanksgiving here in Canada, I signed up for working a shift today so that we can get caught up with all the freight and inventory preparations, getting the store set up for business and inventory. Once this ordeal is behind us, we can turn things around and start anew, knowing where we are standing. As Mercury in Libra is approaching a sextile to Saturn and an opposition to Vesta, we have a chance to succeed with our plans if we remain dedicated to our cause. Moreover, we could receive the advice or reassurance we need to regain our inner peace.
Tarot card of the day is the “Page of Cups”, representing some sort of beginning or renewal, which could herald a positive message we respond to in an emotional manner. Our intuition is sharp today and creative energy is trying to burst forth into our consciousness. Therefore, we need to be open to receive, express our emotions and let our heart lead the way. This card encourages us to take a fresh perspective on a difficult issue and to allow our creative Self to come to the fore so that a sense of freedom may reappear in our life.
