– Venus conjunct Juno in Libra and semi-sextile NN in Virgo/quincunx SN in Pisces
– Third Quarter Moon at 10:48 Virgo/Sagittarius at 2:40 am EST
– Vesta ingress to Aries at 12:45 pm EST (until March 8)
Early this morning Venus met up with Juno in Libra and then, over the course of the day, both engaged in a semi- sextile aspect to the North Node in Virgo (quincunx SN in Pisces), while the “crisis in consciousness” – the Third
Quarter Moon of the Scorpio lunation cycle – transpired. This is the phase in the cycle when we need to put things into the larger perspective and in this case it concerns the same discussions or issues we’re having over and over again (the Sabian Symbol for the Scorpio lunation cycle is “A parrot repeats the conversation he has overheard”), because we didn’t do anything about the situation or learned from our mistakes. The latest mass shooting in California serves as a testament of the present climate in our worldly affairs. “We have a pattern now of mass shootings in this country that has no parallel anywhere else in the world, and there’s some steps we could take, not to eliminate every one of these mass shootings, but to improve the odds that they don’t happen as frequently, common-sense gun safety laws, stronger background checks”, American President Obama said during an interview. This statement expresses the astrological archetypes at play perfectly. Therefore, with Vesta re-entering the sign Aries (first ingress was on June 6 of this year) and crossing over the Aries Point, where the ‘personal becomes political’, we have to make the necessary adjustments and take action or start initiatives to save lives in the future or to survive and also to get our life or “mojo” (drive) back. We need to stoke and rekindle the inner flame and devote us to the ‘sacredness of life’. Also, we have to work out how to co-exist peacefully, how to relate to others in a civil and cultured manner and strive for fairness, impartiality and social grace.
Tarot card of the day is the “2 of Wands”, representing the urge to move on, be bold and daring as well as original and proactive. This card indicates that we have come to a time of decision, where we must decide whether we want to build on what we have or perhaps expand in a new direction. Therefore, it is imperative that we bring forward the patience and focus of our intent and maximize on these opportunities, which are coming our way now. We need to confront the situation head-on, leave familiar grounds behind, step out into a new world and explore our options. Moreover, this card can also refer to the productive meeting of minds, from which partnerships can prosper and be successful.
