The Leo Sun is heading from a tense sesqui-quadrate aspect to retrograde Saturn in Sagittarius into the First Quarter Moon square with the waxing Scorpio Moon and Mars in Leo is following the Sun’s lead, while Venus in Gemini is casting a square to retrograde Chiron in Pisces and a sextile to Uranus in Aries and Mercury in Virgo forms a trine to retrograde Juno in Capricorn.
So, this is quite a complex and dynamic aspect setup for the ‘crisis in action’ that accompanies this stage in the lunation cycle. What started a few days ago with the Sun-Mars conjunction in fiery, self-expressive Leo is now putting us under considerable stress, because we’re experiencing performance or identity pressure and could feel potentially overwhelmed and insecure as a consequence.
The ‘conflagration’ (keyword of the Sabian Symbol for the Leo New Moon) is testing our personal power and resolve as the drama unfolds. Therefore, it is critical that we overcome ourselves and begin to trust in our abilities, which means we need to convince ourselves that we can do this.
Although we may have mixed feelings about it due to greater responsibilities, increased limitations or lack of expertise, we have to remind ourselves that this is what we have been waiting and longing for – it is our show and also our choice. If we want to make progress we have to take heart and go along with the opportunities we’re presented with. A relationship we have established provides the foundation for our ideas and plans.
Tarot card of the day is the “2 of Cups”, suggesting that there is a mutual understanding between the people involved in a relationship and that interactions are balanced and harmonious, because of an awareness of the expectations each person has, which allows for growth and very special relationships. Our focus is on win-win situations as we show kindness and thoughtfulness.
