Today brings some sudden and unexpected surprises that might require a lot of patience. As Venus in Virgo squares the moon, there is a give-and-take between what you want and what is actually occurring. If you feel the need to stand in your truth, this is when you could meet some opposition. This competing energy doesn’t want to budge for anyone’s preconceived expectations. However, Mars is going to kick you right out of your comfort zone whether you’re ready or not.
The Gemini moon helps bring things around by allowing a more analytical approach to everything. Maybe these are the actual changes you need to really step into a more authentic version of yourself after all. Even if you feel a little scattered right now, it doesn’t mean that there isn’t light at the end of the tunnel.
There’s a generous amount of earth energy in the sky as well. This helps on the financial end of matters and deepens your commitment and maturity in this realm of your life. You have to stick with the vision and allow the rest to unfold. Trust your process.
Today’s Sun-Neptune opposition may lead to some significant deceptions or distortions but intuition is stirred in ways that may also help to guide us out of danger. There may be a great deal of interpersonal chaos — frustrations can spill out through shaming, blaming, or harsh recriminations. Today’s chaos and confusion does actually carry with it the opportunity for remarkable resolutions in the coming days. This can bring promising realignments and adjustments to relationships that will serve us very well going forward. However, it may feel quite uncomfortable while we are making these changes. By not taking the chaos personally, we will see the opportunity for resolutions much more quickly.

DAILY ANIMAL SPIRIT CARD
38 | Lizard Spirit | Dream the world into being.
When was the last time you basked in the sun and allowed yourself to daydream, to imagine what might be and who you might become? Lizard Spirit appears when you are called to let your imagination flow and dream something new.
Inspiration is available to you now if you are willing to slow down and let your eyes close a little, allowing ideas to dance in your head. What might come into being if you were to pursue your dream? How might you grow and expand if you allowed yourself to dare to believe in the impossible, making it possible first in your dreaming mind and then in the world as you co-create with Spirit?
Give in to the power of imagination and soon your dream will become clearer, the steps will reveal themselves, and what was ephemeral will begin to coalesce into form. Dream it and be it—Spirit asks you to dare to dream big.
IX | THE HERMIT
Hermit is ruled by Virgo. Virgo is ruled by Mercury. Mercury represents non-emotional and objective thought. It rules perception, language, writing, editing, research, speaking, and all kinds of learning experiences and learning styles. It also rules the assessment of data, telecommunications, computing, software, electronic gadgets, the postal service, shipping, and all forms of transportation. Psychologically the Hermit indicates heightened sensitivities and needs to prove our worth through service and hard work.
The Hermit tarot card represents spending time alone, being a lone wolf, soul-searching, seeking spiritual guidance, introspection. The Hermit lets us know that the answers we seek are already within us. Other people will be drawn to you to get your advice. The Hermit tarot card can also represent a teacher or being a teacher to others. You might find yourself in a situation where you are both being the teacher and the student. By sharing your knowledge, wisdom, and advice you are guiding the way. The Hermit says that you are your own best teacher. If you quiet your mind you will hear the voice of God speaking to you. This takes practice. Meditation in solitude is the key to master this. You are the shining light in someone’s life, but to keep doing this, you also need time to yourself; to reflect, gather your thoughts, and connect to your centre. You can’t be everything for everyone. Take time for you.
