Yesterday, Vesta, a symbol of our dedication, made ingress to Cancer, where she will be traversing until October 20. During this period will we seek to nurture and support our causes and take care of the things we hold sacred or are committed to, especially what matters of home, family, roots, tradition, bonding and belonging concerns. With the Leo Sun in quincunx aspect to retrograde Pallas in Pisces, we’re asked to reconsider our strategies or politics and make sacrifices if necessary in order to get what we long or wish for. A trine from Mercury in Leo to retrograde Eris in Aries indicates that we succeeded with a personal plan or the promotion of our self-interests. The ‘crisis in consciousness’ however, that accompanies the Third Quarter Moon, tests our persistence in this regard in the way we seek to realize and validate ourselves.
Tarot card of the day is “Strength”, suggesting that we draw upon our inner strength and the power of our spirit and will. With compassion and understanding can we handle the most difficult situation and also tame the beast within. We have the ability to be tolerant, forgiving and accepting and thus can gently influence our environment. Furthermore, we can be assured that we have enough endurance to see things through to their end and get a lot accomplished.
