A quincunx between Ceres in Taurus and retrograde Saturn in Libra together with a semi-sextile between
the Sun in Gemini and Vesta in Taurus and another semi-sextile between Mercury in Gemini and Jupiter in Taurus indicate an adjustment concerning things and causes we usually and regularly support toward unresolved social and relationship situations in order to be able to restore control, which requires that we invest our energy in worthy causes and focus on the pursuit of growth and prosperity.
Tarot card of the day is the “6 of Swords”, which indicates a slight reduction in stress and strain. Things will be better than they were in the recent past. There is the possibility of travel or of a changing scenery – literally or figuratively, all of which is helpful to get our head above water. The bottom has been reached and the process of healing has begun. A sense of finality is felt on this journey. The future is not yet visible, but the past is definitely over. We’re moving away from turbulence toward calmer times and will need to make a transition that is better for us in the long-term.
In news that seem to me personally inconceivable, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) survived a furious campaign seeking his recall, emerging as the victor in a bitter fight over state budgets and collective bargaining rights (6 of Swords). However, I can definitely see the connection to 6-6 here. Big money won this round (the Taurus energies complementing the Gemini energies or votes). Apparently, the reductions haven’t affected too many people in this country yet. The ones who cannot look farther than to their own door step might get their awakening once the series of Uranus-Pluto squares will hit ‘home’.
2 Vancouver schools received packages containing body parts. This might be connected to the killing and dismemberment of a Chinese student by a porn star, who is also suspected to have eaten of the body (Taurus-Gemini connection). The good news is that he’s being arrested and awaiting extradition (6 of Swords). – These are 2 great examples of how twisted our world is.
Personal Note: With Venus passing over the Sun yesterday, it’s been a talkative day for me. In the morning I chatted with my girlfriend on Skype and in the late afternoon I got a call from a male friend, who needed to talk and inquired about this phenomenon, while I had begun to write letters to my old aunt and my mom. Unfortunately, I couldn’t see the spectacle in the sky, because it was too cloudy. After that my neighbor knocked on my door to apologize for all the troubles I’ve experienced lately because of him and he just kept talking and talking and also inquiring about the Venus transit. Meanwhile, the pot of tea I had brewed was cold and I had tired. So, I couldn’t focus on any texts anymore. Since this was a seed moment, I wonder if these were ‘signs’ of times to come?
