Now that we initiated a course of action on behalf of our self-interests and it seems as though we could actually succeed with whatever we proposed or requested, applied for or offered, we’re ready to enter the competition or are at least excited for ourselves. Moreover, our motivation has been rising due to the encouragement we received. However, it is critical not to overextend ourselves, rush into action or push too much. This is not just about us and our personal preferences or desires, but about an adjustment that has to be made in regard to our shared values or business affairs. Therefore, the ‘crisis in action’ that accompanies the First Quarter Moon of the Aries lunation cycle challenges us to treat carefully when we proclaim our intentions, because we don’t want to come across as selfish and lose the support or good rapport we established so far.
Tarot card of the day is “The Moon”, suggesting that some things are hidden from conscious view, making it necessary to look well below the surface in order to find clarity or truth. On the other hand, invisible things could be brought to the surface and unforeseen perils could be experienced. This card has moreover the potential to project fears into the present and future based on past ordeals. Repressed thoughts, images and feelings could cause overwhelming disturbances. We might be longing for sleep. It is important to remedy this for which we need to go through a purging process, thereby releasing deep memories. The Moon is a card of illusion and deception, and therefore often suggests a time when something is not as it appears, causing errors in our judgment. It is also possible that we may have lost our way and are now left to walk in the dark, guided only by our inner light and intuition. Nonetheless, we need to go on without a clear picture of where we are or where we are going. It is true that things are vague and illusive, neither clear nor certain or definitive in any way and that therefore we may be torn between many influences, which could distract us from following our core path. The more important is it to reflect upon our life and to use our intuitive abilities or listen to our inner voice to get in touch with our vision. Renewal is possible and secrets may be revealed as we’re walking these dreamscapes. The Moon is moreover a symbol of the turning tides and can refer to healing abilities and other psychic or intuitive work.
