In sync with yesterday’s Third Quarter Moon energies I wasn’t able to post a blog entry about this event.
This stage in the lunation cycle is termed the ‘crisis in consciousness or perception’, because it is the last quarter square and quite significant in regard to our current activities, which need to be seen in the broadest perspective now. So, what has been planted or started at the time of the Libra New Moon (beginning of this cycle) 3 weeks ago and reached a climax with the Taurus Full Moon (one week ago) challenges us now to put things into perspective.
In this case, it is the waning Leo Moon’s square to the Scorpio Sun that is testing our resilience and resourcefulness (Scorpio) now that life has gotten more complicated (Sun in Scorpio) and this could have seen us struggling with matters of personal creativity, self-expression, performance and recognition (Leo).
Saturn’s trine to Uranus marks the end of an extended period or process, during which we have been trying to reform long-standing conditions and make progress on several fronts and now that we’re finally seeing a result or a change, we’re also experiencing an increased sense of structure or limitation that comes with more authority or responsibility or obligations (Saturn) and therefore also alters our daily routine as we have less time or freedom or liberties (Uranus).
A quincunx from Mars in Libra, Uranus’s dispositor, together with a semi-sextile from Mercury to Jupiter, indicate that we have to adjust our actions, intentions, plans and schedules accordingly and this might even require certain sacrifices (Neptune) if we cannot juggle or coordinate our activities (Mars in Libra) or if we lack the necessary energy (Mars). In any case, our options are rather complex in the sense that they aren’t so ‘obvious’ or ‘simple’ with Jupiter in Scorpio, which means we have to be ‘ruthless’, obsessive, passionate and resourceful about these matters. Moreover, the Scorpio Sun is squaring the nodal axis and his ruler Pluto is meeting Juno in Capricorn in conjunction.
Thus, we reached a turning point destiny-wise, where we have to overcome the drawback from the past in order to be able to create the life or future we want for us by breaking with old patterns, which are self-sabotaging and detrimental to our self-development now that things are coming together for us and we feel more empowered in our role and interactions with others as well as in charge or control of our affairs and circumstances.
So, the story that has unfolded for me personally during this particular cycle is as follows: For several months now I have been applying and interviewing for different office jobs and with the Libra New Moon I had another interview about which I felt really positive. On the day of the Taurus Full Moon I got a job offer from this company, which I accepted. I started working there the following week, but I still have to get used to that new routine and the long commute. Therefore, I wasn’t able to prepare a blog post in time or to continue with my dailies on Facebook. However, this forces me to come up with some changes, which are long overdue. 🙂
These are the Tarot cards for the last couple of days (yesterday and today):
Tarot card of the day is the “Page of Cups”, representing some sort of beginning or renewal, which could herald a positive message we respond to in an emotional manner. Our intuition is sharp today and creative energy is trying to burst forth into our consciousness. Therefore, we need to be open to receive, express our emotions and let our heart lead the way. This card encourages us to take a fresh perspective on a difficult issue and to allow our creative Self to come to the fore so that a sense of freedom may reappear in our life.
Tarot card of the day is the “Hanged Man”, demanding from us to let go and surrender to the experience, end the struggle, accept what is and hang in there for now. We are in an in-between state and also at a cross-roads, where decisions are postponed, even though there’s a sense of urgency to act. Therefore, we may simply just want to wait for better opportunities. There is a chance that we could see a situation from a new angle and consequently, overturn our priorities or upend the old order. This card also represents someone who has chosen the path of sacrifice and forsaken instant gratification in order to accomplish a higher goal.
