The Cancer Sun comes out of a square to Eris in Aries before he engages with the waning Aries Moon in the Third Quarter Square on which he follows up with adjusting aspects to the nodal axis.
This means that yesterday’s energies could have challenged us in a nurturing role, where we had to take action to either take care of our own needs or care for and help someone else for the sake of our self-interests. However, we had to overcome our own subjectivity in this matter and not react defensively or mindless or being unsupportive, because that could have resulted in discord or strife.

With this scenario leading into the ‘crisis of consciousness’ that accompanies this particular phase in the lunation cycle, we might realize how important it is to focus on caring and nurturing, especially in a family setting or home environment so that we can create the life we want in the near future. Therefore, instead of thinking only of our own agenda, we have to get our stuff together and concentrate on the circumstances we need to manage.

With both, Venus and Mars, involved in tense aspects to Uranus, we feel the pressure to make progress with our personal priorities and long to move ahead with our intentions, yet we struggle with defeat, unproductive habits we’ve developed and familiar reactions, which have their roots in the past and are not helpful. Thus, it is critical at this point that we break out of these patterns and turn a corner by changing our value system and start putting energy into activities or initiatives that will support us in this process.

Tarot card of the day is the “Knight of Swords”, indicating that we’re embarking on a new project or idea and there’s no stopping us. We’re headstrong and outspoken as we know what we are talking about and let others know where we or they stand, thereby going straight to the point. Certain things can no longer be avoided – the confrontation will come and commence. Determined and energetic, we’re charging ahead, focused on our goal. However, hasty and impulsive moves can get us into trouble or too far ahead of ourselves. Therefore, we need to be ready to make adjustments as we go along, including jumping in and out of a situation. Moreover, our impatience with problems we encounter could leave us stressed and overly concerned with our own issues, resulting in a single-minded attitude.
