In addition to the perfection of yesterday’s aspects are we dealing with a sesqui-quadrate between Mars in Cancer
and retrograde Juno in Aquarius and the First Quarter Moon, which will transpire at 11:18 pm EDT. Not to mention that Jupiter in Cancer has moved in the position of the third leg of the water Grand Trine and indeed, we’re under the spell of a heat wave that is not enjoyable anymore, but just feels sickening, because it is just too much to bear. The Pow Wow festival was awe-inspiring with its colorful dancers, the powerful drumming and the immense variety of native goods to choose from. However, due to the extreme heat, everybody was exhausted with dancers quickly approaching a breaking point and removing their customs as soon as they left the circle. People had to remain in the shades of the forest on the camping ground. Hanging around the vendor stands seemed to be impossible or one would pass out. My girlfriend and I hit the beach later in the afternoon to get some much needed relief. It was packed there, which is unusual for Ipperwash. Meanwhile, the oil companies used the opportunity to send gas prices sky high, yet lines were long everywhere. I stayed overnight at my friend’s place and met her beautiful, funny kids for the first time. Unfortunately, they both caught a bug, which forced her to stay at home today and consequently, the store she manages in Grand Bend will remain closed for the day – unless she finds some help somehow. Well, this is what the astrology for today suggests – due to changes in relationship situations or dynamics we have to become inventive and use other sources of support as traditional approaches won’t do. Moreover, we’re challenged to accommodate others, while trying to take care of our own needs. Per example, I watched Lee Ann’s kids as she went out to get some groceries and she drove in front of me to show me the way out of town from her house. Since I have a shift today, I couldn’t stay though to babysit. As soon as I arrived at my home, I packed the gifts for my sister I had purchased yesterday and send them away finally. Her birthday is in a week. After that I went to bed to get some more sleep, instead of writing my blog post or answering mail.
Tarot card of the day is the “Ace of Swords”, indicating a new way of thinking or the conception of an idea or the start of a new project. Our mental powers have been awakened and we’re seeing through illusions, cutting through the confusion, dispelling doubts, finding out the facts, thinking our way through or championing a cause. It’s a time of great insight and mental clarity, which could result in a breakthrough or aha-moment as well as a greater understanding.
