Monday, January 6, 2014 – A Soldier with Deep Faith

20140105-205424.jpg

Mid-day on Monday, the Moon moves into Aries, joining Uranus in Aries in the Cardinal Grand Cross.

We also have Four of Swords.

This card is usually about resting, but with Moon in Aries in the sky, the interpretation is different. It relates to the first half of the day with Moon in Pisces.

I remember reading somewhere that knights used to contemplate as pictured above before they went to battle. Notice the stained glass window in the background. The knight is in a church.

Half the day will be spent in contemplation… preparation for the battle. Deep faith (Pisces) is involved. Once the Moon crosses into Aries, one’s will will be consolidated, and it’s off to the battlefield.

The Aries energy does not exactly harmonize but joins the team. Aries is cardinal. Moon in Aries matches the energy of the Cardinal Grand Cross and works as part of it.

With energy like this in the sky today, there’s a lot of potential.

You have a soldier who’s decisive, focused, and committed, fighting for something they’ve contemplated deeply and have deep faith in.

Do you see yourself using this energy to your benefit?

Sunday, January 5, 2014 – Day for Cardinal signs and Doers

20140104-205530.jpg
Sunday, we have the Eight of Pentacles.

Unfortunately, it may be a day that bores you to tears.

If you like what you have to do on your to-do list, then you’ll fair better than the rest. You’ll probably be excited and invigorated to be productive and get things done. This is Cardinal energy. Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) start things, do things, and take control.

If not, the day may feel like you’re plugging away at something you’d rather not do. You want to go shopping, you want to have fun, you want sleep — you want to do something else!

You want to escape. (The Pisces Moon is still there in the sky.) Anything but this!

Well, I’m sorry. I truly am. It’s not one of those days. I’d chock the tense weekend up to the Cardinal Grand Cross. A person can feel like they’re caught up in a trap.

If you like to work, like the work you have to do, or have a positive outlook on the work that needs to get done, then this will be a good, productive day.

But if you want to slack, you may feel like you’re being dragged out of bed to do your chores.

In the first case, you’re aligning with the Cardinal energy. You’re initiating and doing what needs to get done of your own volition.

In the latter case, the Cardinal energy feels like it’s coming from outside of you and is expressed on to you. Like your mother telling you to get out of bed and clean your room.

Which scenario do you see yourself in? How well do you handle Cardinal energy?
