– Mercury in Aries semi-square Venus in Taurus
– Venus in Taurus sextile Chiron in Pisces
– Sun in Aries trine Jupiter Rx in Leo
– Juno in Leo trine Saturn Rx in Sagittarius

It is critical today to make sure our personal values and priorities are met, which requires that we have an action plan and keep our focus on our objectives, especially since we can take advantage of the situation and pursue our as yet unfulfilled needs. As a result, our self-confidence is rising and so is our conviction that we will succeed with our mission now that we reaffirmed our role and purpose in the larger scheme of things.

Tarot card of the day is the 6 of Wands” again, suggesting that things are changing in a positive way. There is the possibility of acclaim and acknowledgment. It could be our day to shine or we could be coming out on top. We strive to be successful and seek to promote ourselves more frequently in order to gain the recognition we desire. However, it is important that we keep the ego in check.

Daily aspects:
– Mars ingress to Taurus at 12:26 pm EDT (until May 12)
– Moon ingress to Virgo at 2:12 pm EDT
– Mercury in Aries semi-sextile Vesta in Pisces
– Juno in Leo trine Saturn Rx in Sagittarius

Our role in a relationship situation has led to results and a better understanding of our life’s

conditions. Therefore, today begins a period during which we will steadily build up motivation, stamina and strength as well as productivity, cultivate courage and persistence and carry out activities and intentions in a consistent and repetitive manner. This requires that we adjust our personal plans or agenda to be able to sacrifice for our common cause. After the Moon’s ingress to Virgo will we feel more helpful and ready to fix and improve.

Daily aspects:
– Mars in Aries trine Pallas in Sagittarius
– Venus in Taurus trine Pluto in Capricorn and semi-sextile Uranus in Aries

Now that we succeeded with our approach, we feel more accomplished as well as prepared to take the next steps toward the realization of our plans. However, we could have too much on our plate and therefore need to keep moving, tackling one thing at a time and believing that we will eventually get there if we apply the necessary effort and diligence, while coordinating our activities in a way that allows us to meet our objectives. As the Sun shines a light on patterns and actions of the past, we have to confront our future prospects and weigh our options in this regard so that we can reach agreements or make arrangements, which help us on our path. A period starts during which we focus on living, competing and surviving, while thinking about new beginnings and initiatives. Moreover, we will enact plans and agendas and initiate contacts and conversations, thereby communicating our intentions and will with directness and courage.
Meanwhile, the spring storms are here, pounding us with the ferocious force of a beast and bringing snow and rain.

Tarot card of the day is Death”, marking an ending and the completion of a chapter or the concluding of unfinished business. We have a chance to put the past behind as we’re going through that which cannot be avoided, while accepting the inevitable and riding our fate.

Astro-Notes on March 28 and 29, 2015

Daily aspects:
– Vesta ingress to Pisces at 1:50 pm EDT (until June 6)
– Vesta in Pisces semi-square Pluto in Capricorn and semi-square Uranus in Aries,
– Venus in Taurus sesqui Pallas in Sagittarius
– Sun in Aries semi-sextile Neptune in Pisces
– Mars in Aries square Ceres in Capricorn
– Moon ingress to Leo at 1:47 am EDT
– Mercury in Pisces sesqui Jupiter Rx in Leo
– Venus in Taurus trine Pluto in Capricorn and semi-sextile Uranus in Aries
– Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn

Early yesterday afternoon did Vesta make ingress to Pisces and moved right into the Uranus-Pluto square

with semi-squares to both planetary bodies. This started a period during which we will be focusing on as well as dedicate us to our dreams or vision with intensified commitment and energy investment in order to be able to make progress, whereby it is essential that we evaluate our needs in regard to the long-term or bigger picture and overcome the developmental blocks, which are still holding us back from moving forward and reaching out or making things happen.
After the Moon’s ingress to Leo at the beginning of this new day have we been feeling more self-centered and self-expressive, putting our desires and wants first and seeking to accomplish our tasks or goals. In the same sense as the Sun is coming out strongly, warming up the environment, and spring is in the ‘air’, even though we had to struggle with another bout of winter the last couple of days, do we emerge from our ‘prison’ or ‘hibernation’ and get ready for our ‘resurrection’.

Tarot card of the day is the Page of Pentacles”, a card that encourages us to begin putting those plans and actions in place that will ultimately lead us toward the fulfillment of our goals and dreams. It is time to start acting on all those grand ideas and concepts that have been brewing in our imagination. No matter what’ll take, we need to see the project through and work on the realization of our vision.

Astro-Notes on March 27, 2015

Daily aspects:
– First Quarter Moon at 6:19 Cancer/Aries at 3:42 am EDT
– Venus in Taurus square Jupiter Rx in Leo
– Pallas in Sagittarius semi-sextile Ceres in Capricorn
– Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn

The First Quarter Moon transpired early this morning, marking the midpoint between our current eclipses and being accompanied by a ‘crisis in action’, which means the ‘seed planted’ at the beginning of this lunation cycle, ushered in by a Total Solar Eclipse in the very last degree of the zodiac, the omega point, has reached a critical stage after the ‘occultation event’ has brought something long hidden into our conscious awareness or the light of day. The Sabian Symbol for this particular degree of the zodiac states: “A majestic rock formation resembling a face is idealized by a boy who takes it as his ideal of greatness and as he grows up begins to look like it. Keynote: The power of clearly visualized ideals to mold the life of the visualizer – ARCHETYPALIZATION.”
On Tuesday, the day of the Mercury-Chiron conjunction in Pisces, did a young German co-pilot (a boy) deliberately crash an airbus with 150 passengers and crew on board into the French alps, which are ‘a majestic rock formation’. Meanwhile, it has been discovered that this young man had a history of mental illness (Mercury-Chiron), for which he was treated in a psychiatric care facility a few years ago and it has been assumed by his employer that he had fully recovered. However, documents found indicate that he in fact had an existing illness and was still medicated and in treatment, but hid (Pisces) this from his employer. So, now that these initiatives and investigations helped us to find the truth (or so it seems) and answer these pressing questions, the authorities have been challenged to react to this disaster in order to protect lives and prevent something like this from happening again (First Quarter Moon coupled with Venus-Jupiter square, with Jupiter being disposited by the Aries Sun) and with Pallas in Sagittarius in semi-sextile aspect to Ceres in Capricorn cockpit regulations are being changed or extended, calling for more personnel in there. Moreover, the liability of the company comes into play. They are facing a compensation bill in the hundreds of thousands of euros, of which they offered the families of the victims $50.000 euros each already to cover their immediate costs.

Tarot card of the day is for the third time in short succession the 2 of Wands”, representing the urge to move on, be bold and daring as well as original and proactive. This card indicates that we have come to a time of decision, where we must decide whether we want to build on what we have or perhaps expand in a new direction. Therefore, it is imperative that we bring forward the patience and focus of our intent and maximize on these opportunities, which are coming our way now. We need to confront the situation head-on, leave familiar grounds behind, step out into a new world and explore our options. Moreover, this card can also refer to the productive meeting of minds, from which partnerships can prosper and be successful.

Astro-Notes on March 26, 2015

Daily aspects:
– Moon ingress to Cancer at 3:45 pm EDT
– Mercury in Pisces semi-sextile Eris in Aries
– Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn

We have to adjust our plans and schedule in such way that we can meet our self-interests, knowing that we can’t delay certain things any longer. Once the Moon will make ingress to Cancer will we be striving for nurturance, while seeking to bond and to get the support we need.

Tarot card of the day is The Fool”, referring to unlimited potential, new beginnings, a sense of innocence and naivety. Anything can happen as we start on this journey. We could be taken into unchartered territory and thus need to be aware of the risks and dangers we could encounter, but also need to be ready to take on the opportunities presented to us. This card encourages us to have faith and calls upon us to trust, believe in our spirit and to follow our heart.
