Astro-Notes on February 27, 2015

Daily aspects:
– Moon ingress to Cancer at 7:49 am EST
– Pallas in Sagittarius trine Eris in Aries
– Jupiter Rx in Leo quincunx Pluto in Capricorn

We start the day seeking warmth, safety, to bond and to be nurtured. Now that our strategies have proved to be successful, our attitude is getting better. We’re over ourselves and picking ourselves up again. This battle has been won – whether we’ve fought it within or without – and therefore, we make the necessary adjustment conviction-wise in order to be able to manage our circumstances.

Tarot card of the day is the King of Wands”, a card that represents increasing belief in ourselves and rising self-confidence. We’re focusing our intent and learn to act in the moment. Strongly motivated and engaged, we know we will succeed. This is a day to be courageous, entrepreneurial and to reach for our goals. Moreover, we have the ability to control our environment and live our life with intent and vision. It’s important to remain focused on our long-term goals. Opportunities coming our way today have to be navigated with a clear sense of direction and the understanding that we’re the determining factor in this situation and can tackle any challenge.

Daily aspects:
– Sun in Pisces semi-square Eris in Aries
– Neptune in Pisces semi-square Eris in Aries
– Vesta in Aquarius semi-sextile Pluto in Capricorn and opposite Jupiter Rx in Leo
– Venus in Aries semi-sextile Neptune in Pisces
– Pallas in Sagittarius trine Eris in Aries
– Juno Rx in Leo trine Saturn in Sagittarius
– Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn

Truth is we aren’t happy campers at the moment. We feel let down and disappointed, well aware of

the ‘big bully in the room’. The vibe of discord that’s poisoning the atmosphere around us has reached a critical point, pushing all the right buttons to put us on the defensive and we are quick to pass judgment under these conditions. Although, we may experience another low or ‘blow’ to our sense of Self, we won’t throw the towel. Instead, either the competitive spirit or the inner rebel awakens within us and starts a fight for the sake of our self-interests and ‘survival’. We have no choice, but to manage these distressing circumstances and turn a no-win situation into a winning one. Therefore, we’re blowing our horn and setting ourselves up for success, just in time to come to our own rescue.

Tarot card of the day is the King of Pentacles, suggesting that we put quality over quantity and are good stewards of our life and energy. We pursue self-sufficiency and self-reliance, gain progress one step at a time and work toward a goal with firm resolve. Moreover, we handle any situation competently, meet commitment and promises and can be counted on. Our enterprising spirit comes forward as we turn this day into a successful day. This is a card of worldly success, ultimate fulfillment and material satisfaction that comes with the promise of financial stability and continuing prosperity.

Daily aspects:
– Vesta in Aquarius sextile Uranus in Aries and semi-sextile Pluto in Capricorn
– Mars in Aries trine Juno Rx in Leo and trine Saturn in Sagittarius
– First Quarter Moon at 6:46 Gem/Pisces at 12:13 pm EST
– Mercury in Aquarius trine NN in Libra/sextile SN in Aries
– Sun conjunct Neptune in Pisces

So, now that our major initiative and choice we made led to success and we know what our future prospects look like, we’re dealing with mixed feelings, in some cases even with an identity crisis – the ‘crisis in action’ that accompanies the First Quarter Moon challenges the “totality of being” (key-phrase of the Sabian Symbol for the late Aquarius New Moon). There is no turning back – this door has closed for us – we have to proceed with the course that has been set, following through all the way, no matter what the circumstances will be. As one episode of our life ends, another begins during which we have the chance to shape our self-image according to higher values or ideals we’re inspired by, to give up our own light or popularity for the greater good or to become a beacon of light and hope and to follow a path of uncertainty or faith or of self-undoing and sacrifice.

Tarot card of the day is the Page of Swords”, a card that is also called “The Renewer” and is all about communication, information and ideas and indicates the ability to rise above emotional confusion. The Page or Princess of Swords represents commitment to a new way of life, because of the settling and cutting away of past inner conflicts, the regaining of mental clarity and a victory over emotional moods. Manifestation of our dreams can actually happen in the not so distant future as she delivers messages of change and news of official matters.

– Juno Rx in Leo trine Saturn in Sagittarius
– Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn
– Moon ingress to Gemini at 11:53 pm EST

Now that we’ve learnt our lesson in regard to self-preservation or found out about our social duties and

responsibilities we reached a better understanding about our role in the larger scheme of things and the purpose we’re meant to fulfill to validate our worth and prove ourselves. Therefore, we carried out our mission to contribute to these causes we hold sacred and acted on our beliefs, principles and convictions (an excellent example are the 3 missing school girls from the UK who just crossed into Syria to join IS). A new wind is blowing, so to speak, and as things are changing once again, we can take advantage of the situation and make a difference or progress with specific commitments we’ve chosen to pursue (another great example is Obama’s veto of the keystone bill). After the Moon’s ingress to Gemini will we feel lighter and also more flexible, while seeking to adapt to the new trends.

Tarot card of the day is the 4 of Swords”, signifying a break from normal life and a time when we avoid overexertion. We seek to relax body and soul, because we want to gain a better perspective by standing back from the situation and coming to terms with what is. For the moment, there is a truce, which gives us a chance to stabilize ourselves, recover, center our thoughts, stop worrying, put down our defenses and take a breather from the chaos and stress around us. In a practical sense, this card is an indicator that we need to have some time out from our current circumstances, to reflect and review your progress so far to be able to re-evaluate and re-assess our priorities.

Larger obligations or tasks we have to attend to force us out of “oblivion or hiding”, or in other words ‘self-undoing’ and considering the conditions we’re presented with, this means we may want to reach out to others to help us along the way. There is a good chance that we will be successful in our pursuit, because we initiated this ‘setup’ and others agreed to it. Some of our duties have been delayed for too long and although it is still winter, we’re getting a head start on our ‘spring cleaning activities’. It’s about time that we wake up from our ‘slumber’ and concentrate on our exchanges with others, especially in regard to the role we’re playing within these dynamics and then evaluate whether we’ve lived up to our purpose or not and also whether we did everything we could to deserve more recognition of our deeds and talents or worth.

Tarot card of the day is The Chariot”, suggesting that we take control and move forward with care. There is a need to remain focused and to keep the emotions in check. We need to harness our energy and apply it wisely. Self-discipline is important to be able to balance the light and shadow aspects of our personality.

Daily aspects:
– Venus conjunct Mars in Aries
– Mercury in Aquarius semi-sextile Neptune in Pisces
– Juno Rx in Leo trine Saturn in Sagittarius
– Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn
– Moon ingress to Taurus at 7:28 pm EST

Although we’ve just started a new sub-cycle of determined activity and ‘urgent’ pursuit of our most burning desires, we have to meet certain expectations or promises we made first and make some time for that. Others might call in favors they extended toward us or wait for us to take on more obligations or responsibilities. In any case, it is our turn to sacrifice and come to their rescue or at least to show some solidarity and help out. Only later tonight, after the Moon’s ingress to Taurus, will we feel more comfortable in our skin as well as appreciated and seek to get cozy, while indulging our physical appetites.

Tarot card of the day is the 5 of Swords”, suggesting that we’re dealing with mixed feelings about life in general and experiencing conflict or discord – inner as well as outer. The more important is it to pick our battles wisely and think before we act. There are boundaries and limitations in life situations we must accept, even though they could make us feel powerless. In this regard, we must overcome ourselves and focus on our needs in order to regain our composure. On the other hand, this card can indicate victory or achievement, which has been well-deserved and long-awaited, but only if we don’t give in to defeat.

It has been critical at the beginning of this new sub-cycle that we reviewed our personal and creative

options before we even engage in new commitments or arrangements. We’re starting over, motivated by what we want, desire and strive for. Freshly energized, we feel our drive and determination emerging. Spurred by the urge to act, we seek to move ahead with things or situations, but our fire could burn out quickly in circumstances, where we are stuck and have to struggle with bad luck or injustice. Therefore, only ‘gentle pushes’ have to do at this time.
