Venus in Cancer squares off with healing centaur Chiron in Aries today. Fears of abandonment might trigger us to act out in relationships or try to control the financial activity of others.
In order to overcome such sentiments, we’ll have to be real with ourselves about emotions and personal triggers. Healing takes time and requires a lot of effort. It isn’t something that can happen overnight. If we accept the fact that we’re all a work in progress and give ourselves the acceptance we give others, then we can start the process of mending our hearts.
Instead of arguing and fighting with those you love—and even yourself—it’s essential to look deep within for the understanding and compassion you require. You can heal your heart and spirit if you are gentle and less judgmental with yourself. No one is perfect, and we have to accept the fact that everyone has flaws. Some people are just better at hiding them than others.
We all have our own insecurities, but that doesn’t mean we have to take them out on others and project past trauma into our relationships. Learning how to deal with this energy is a lifelong lesson, and today you are able to take the first steps in healing and mending your heart.
The stakes have been raised on our need to fully, clearly, and directly express our individual perspective. Personal relationships are especially troublesome today but our need to make connections is intense. There is some potential for crisis here but also extraordinary opportunities to find our way to the other side of the challenge and emerge with much more satisfactory connections. The Sun is approaching a square to Neptune, pointing to continuing challenges with clarity. Our ability to discriminate facts from fantasy is hampered, intuition and faith are the only guideposts we have. Most troubling is the potential to believe a wrong must be corrected when the wrong is actually a misunderstanding.

As the 9 of wand talks of courage in facing an external threat, the Strength card talks about developing that courage from within. This is not battling yourself per se, though the need to overcome some personal addiction or trait you decide is unfavourable definitely falls into the realm of this card, today you are being asked to take stock of how you deal with life and then internalise the results. They don’t all serve you well and oftentimes leading to crushing insecurities.
Today you are being asked to dig deep and face a fear, or fears, that is holding you back. Don’t want to make that call to the debt collecting agency? Do it. Can’t face that awful woman at work? Face her. You can do it. The Strength card says you can and it says you can do it elegantly like a lion.
