* Today’s energy enables you to rapidly shift your perspective.
But your conceptual breakthrough won’t just arrive out of the blue.
You have thought long and hard about your direction in life and when you learn something new, you try to integrate it into your core beliefs.
Even if you feel extra pressure to take your current ideas public,
remember to listen to your own instincts before you just do what you’re told.
Following your heart is the only solution that makes sense.
* We need to separate ourselves from the pack today by expressing a unique point of view.
Paradoxically, we still dream of belonging to a group, tribe or community of like-minded people.
Today’s eccentric Aquarius Moon encourages us to do things differently,
making it easier to break free from the status quo.
However, the Moon’s uneasy aspects to passionate Pluto, radical Uranus, and combative Mars
tempt us to take our rebellion a step too far.
* If you feel pressure,
following your heart keeps you on the right path.
* Time away from the hubbub of civic life,
to relax the ego in communion with Nature.
* Be sure to guard against a lack of self-discipline.
* Don’t bury your feelings now — take a risk and reveal your insecurities to someone you trust.
* We are torn between rational thoughts and irrational emotions today as the quirky Aquarius Moon forms aspects with seven planets.
Paradoxically, Aquarius the Water Bearer is an intellectual air sign yet the Moon symbolizes our feelings.
We can easily conceptualize the future now, even while nostalgically clinging to the past.
Thankfully, our moods are dynamic enough that we shouldn’t have a problem responding to the changing circumstances.
* We may be clinging to something from our romantic pasts right now, even as we consider the future of our love lives.
Luckily, we can still adapt to changes in real time today.
* Be careful not to procrastinate or make promises you can’t keep.
* Containment of Potential
In a current situation you have considerable reserves of energy and support to draw upon.
This is the right time to channel creativity by collecting and organizing good ideas and plans.
In this way, even large or extremely challenging undertakings can be successful.
A hidden source of power for the great is the study of the past.
The lives of wise and successful men and women are like buried treasures of wisdom.
Great good fortune comes to those who unearth these valuable treasures by applying the lessons of the ages to current events.
Traditionally, the card known as the Hanged Man usually indicates a lack of ability to help oneself through independent action.
This energy is arrested and awaiting judgment. With this card, there is no avenue for the will to regain control until the situation has passed.
This represents a good time to be philosophical, to study and meditate upon the position you find yourself in, and form resolutions for the moment you become free again.
Only those who possess wisdom, patience and optimism will be able to see through limitations, including possible humiliation, to grasp the inspiring lesson one can gain from such an experience.
What is traditionally known as the Temperance card is a reference to the Soul.
Classically female, she is mixing up a blend of subtle energies for the evolution of the personality.
One key to interpreting this card can be found in its title, a play on the process of tempering metals in a forge.
Metals must undergo extremes of temperature, folding and pounding, but the end product is infinitely superior to impure ore mined from the earth.
In this image, the soul volunteers the ego for a cleansing and healing experience
which may turn the personality inside-out,
but which brings out the gold hidden within the heart.
