The core dynamic for today is wanting to get what we want, but not knowing what we are going to get. It is wise to remember this before getting ahead of oneself today.
The Sun is discharging the energetic of " a quiver filled with arrows." At varying levels, this motivates us toward obtaining, achieving, catching, seeking, or experiencing something we desire. This is stronger for some than others today (depending on how one's astrological chart is being aspected).
What actually results from what we achieve, catch, seek, or experience is more unknown than it normally would be. This is because Venus is discharging the energetic of "workmen drilling for oil." With this dynamic, what we find is uncertain, possibly even risky.
The combination of two energetics tells us to be fully prepared, consider all potential consequences, and make sure their is a point to it before engaging it. The aim should be true.
Instead of launching into or toward something impulsively, we can follow the energetic of the Earth today, as it disseminates the energetic of "a mother leads her small child step by step up the stair." We understand that when this Sabian symbol degree is activated, it is best to take one thing at a time.
This solar-lunar year is like a magic carpet ride, and today is natural for things that interest us to cross our flight path. Wanting to learn somethingis a strong influence. Past interests or hobbies may "return" for us to resume. All of this relates to what is meaningful to us.
Yesterday I discussed Mars' re-entry into Scorpio (joining the Black Moon in Scorpio). Scorpio has a pointer - a stinger. With the Sun at "a quiver of arrows," pointed conversations, sharp stabs, and piercing emotions all too easily ensue. Again, we want to think twice. These energetics bring anger to the surface quickly, especially until the Moon moves into Pisces. Then, that energy tends to turn inward, and can become gloomy and defeatist. When Scorpio and Pisces energies intermingle, emotions become tidal waves from which people seek escape. Overconsumption of alcohol would tend to exacerbate this effect. This is a holiday weekend in the US, when alcohol consumption is already higher.
Love arrows of consciousness fills our quivers. Let's launch a volley of them today, wise owls!
(P.S. I will be back tomorrow for the shift to the Third Quarter phase.)
