Astro-Notes on March 22, 2015

Daily astrology:
– Moon ingress to Taurus at 6:40 am EDT
– Mars in Aries semi-square Neptune in Pisces
– Mercury in Pisces sextile Pluto in Capricorn and semi-sextile Uranus in Aries
– Pallas in Sagittarius sesqui Jupiter Rx in Leo and sextile Vesta in Aquarius
– Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn

We are having a slow start in the day and we’re also a bit laid back and spaced out, because we need the rest and some pampering. However, once we feel better, we have to snap out of it and move out of our comfort zone or get ready and going in order to be able to make our dreams come true. In fact, we can gain some influence or control over our affairs if we choose so, bring forth the necessary initiative and motivation and work on our progress. Therefore, it is important that we review our personal options in order to come up with the right approach and then dedicate us to our causes or projects convinced that we can make big strides if we only apply our mind to them.

Tarot card of the day is 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.

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.

Astro-Notes on January 26, 2015

Daily aspects:
– Sun in Aquarius semi-sextile Neptune in Pisces
– Mercury Rx in Aquarius semi-sextile Chiron in Pisces
– Moon ingress to Taurus at 11:37 am EST
– Venus in Aquarius semi-sextile Vesta in Capricorn and semi-square Pluto in Capricorn
– First Quarter Moon at 6:54 Taurus/Aquarius at 11:48 pm EST

We’re reviewing our latest choices and inspirations today on which we will base our decisions and plans for the day and hopefully finish up where we left off and meet those remaining expectations and goals for which we have to make the necessary adjustments and time. In particular since the ‘crisis in action’ challenges us to remain persistent amidst the twists and turns over which we have no control so that we can continue with our mission or whatever we set out to do, even if the proceedings are tough or too many things/issues have accumulated and we don’t know what to expect in the near future from these latest revelations. In any case, we could be struggling if we haven’t covered our bases, prepared ourselves for these circumstances or forgot some matters we have to take care of, especially after the Moon’s ingress to Taurus when we seek to get into our usual routine and feel a bit more complacent. Also, we have to accept that values and people can change and that we might have to manage without certain resources or things we used to enjoy as a result.

Tarot card of the day is The Hierophant”, representing traditional values and moral development. This card is suggesting that we stay within conventional bounds and follow established social structures and traditions. There is a need to conform to rules or fixed situations and to go along with the program. We are working as part of a team and are doing the right thing. This concerns especially the bridging of the earthly and divine, which can be achieved by using our situation or particular circumstances to transcend as yet unevolved aspects of ourselves. A gateway to higher consciousness is open for us today that allows us to access the sacred as we try to understand the inner world.

Astro-Notes on December 30, 2014

Daily aspects:
– Moon ingress to Taurus at 5:55 am EST
– Mercury in Capricorn quincunx Jupiter Rx in Leo and square Eris Rx in Aries

We start the day slowly, feeling rather mellow and complacent, while trying to settle into our routines. However, we have to adjust our work plans or the ways we use to organize and manage our surroundings to personal or creative options, which have been reviewed and this is causing us to struggle with ourselves, thereby challenging us to bring forth our competitive edge or spirit. Once we overcome our negativity, we will be able to realize that we will succeed with that mission if we only set our mind to it.

Tarot card of the day is the Ace of Pentacles”, indicating a new beginning that involves the material aspect of our lives. New investments and business ventures are becoming available. We can proceed with trust and take advantage of what works for us, while focusing on concrete results and on the manifestation of our goals. We can make a real-world impact; we’re experiencing growth, a feeling of prosperity and abundance, we flourish and draw to us what we need. Moreover, we operate from a known position, have a support system and can achieve tangible results.

Daily aspects:
– Moon ingress to Taurus at 00:14 am EST
– Saturn in Scorpio sesqui Uranus Rx in Aries
– Vesta ingress to Capricorn at 6:45 am EST (until Jan. 28)

We start this day feeling more comfortable in our skin, while settling into a steady and slow pace.

However, the pressure isn’t off us yet. We want to get back into our routine and this requires that we need to restore order after the craze and buzz of the weekend. It doesn’t help though to get interrupted or called away from our tasks every now and then, but the circumstances are more difficult and stressful at the moment or at least until we got this phase over with and we will pull through it. We won’t give in or up – not at this point, where there is finally some hope for things to change in the near future. Consequently, a period begins during which we have a chance to organize our causes and manage our energy more constructively, to strengthen our dedication or commitment and to make achievements in regard to the things we hold sacred.

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.

Daily aspects:

– Sun in Scorpio trine Chiron Rx in Pisces and qx Uranus Rx in Aries
– Moon ingress to Taurus at 4:32 pm EST

By using our strategic advantages to get our tasks done, we could still be very productive in spite of complicated setups and conditions. However, we won’t take the blame for unresolved problems; neither can we work miracles or meet unrealistic expectations, yet we will have to accept or surrender to certain inevitable circumstances and see where the flow of events is going to take us. We won’t be selling our soul though. After all we’ve been through, we’re empowered enough to not take any abuse or dominance anymore. Therefore, we have to review our choices and adjust accordingly. Later in the afternoon will we feel more comforted and seek to satisfy our cravings.

Tarot card of the day is the 9 of Swords”, suggesting that is important to maintain trust and faith instead of letting negative thoughts, worries and concerns are getting the best of us. We need to be patient as better things or opportunities might come along soon. There is no need to put ourselves down or get overwhelmed or anxious. Circumstances are just unfortunate momentarily and the overall situation is rather complex.

Daily aspects:
– Moon ingress to Taurus at 7:43 am EDT
– Mercury Rx in Scorpio square Juno in Leo
– Ceres in Scorpio quincunx Eris Rx in Aries
– Sun in Libra semi-square Vesta in Sagittarius

After the Moon’s ingress to Taurus will we feel rather mellow, even a bit complacent, and seek out

comfort and gratification. However, we cannot afford to lay back and indulge in our fancies, because of personal and creative commitments we made and the deadlines or expiration dates, which are approaching. Therefore, we have to get our stuff together, seize the day and pursue our causes enthusiastically and with the conviction that we will succeed with whatever we set our mind to.

Tarot card of the day is Strength”, suggesting that we draw upon our inner strength and the power of our spirit and will. With compassion and understanding can we handle the most difficult situation and also tame the beast within. We have the ability to be tolerant, forgiving and accepting and thus can gently influence our environment. Furthermore, we can be assured that we have enough endurance to see things through to their end and get a lot accomplished.
