Greetings, Astro friends! Today, on the third day of Virgo season, the Moon is nestled in the adventurous and optimistic sign of Sagittarius, forming a trine aspect with Venus, the planet of love and beauty. This powerful alignment encourages us to embrace new experiences, take risks, and savor the sweetness of life. Meanwhile, Mercury, the planet of communication and intellect, is also forming a trine aspect with Uranus, the planet of innovation and change. This cosmic duo bestows upon us a period of fresh ideas, creative thinking, and intellectual pursuits. Additionally, Mars, the planet of action and passion, is trine Pluto, the planet of transformation and power. This fosters a sense of determination and inner strength, making it an ideal time to pursue our goals with gusto.
Moon 14º Sagittarius - Nine of Wands
Venus 14º Leo - 5 of Wands
Mercury 21º Virgo - 10 of Pentacles
Uranus 23º Taurus - 7 of Pentacles
Mars 28º Virgo - 10 of Pentacles
Pluto 28º Capricorn 4 of Pentacles
The cosmic forces are aligning! With unifying planetary energies, we are encouraged to seek new ideas, innovate our frequencies, take risks in new endeavors, and create a true transformation in our lives.
However, the Sun opposes Saturn, the planet of restriction and discipline, which may present some challenges or obstacles to overcome in order to achieve our objectives. Nevertheless, this astrological configuration signifies a time of growth, exploration, and transformation, with opportunities and challenges that can lead to personal development and achievement.
Sun 2º Virgo - 8 of Pentacles
Saturn 3º Pisces - 8 of Cups
This is interesting because the 8 of Pentacles represents the daily grind, while the 8 of Cups suggests a desire to leave everything behind and embark on a spiritual journey. The fact that these two cards, both numbered eight, correspond to different suits - Pentacles representing the Earth, and material matters, and Cups representing emotions, feelings, and the subconscious realm - The opposition between these two cards suggests that there is a need to balance the mundane and spiritual aspects of our lives. Given the overwhelming energy of the Earth in the chart, the placement of Saturn is very important. Perhaps suggesting to pay attention to our intuition, dreams, and divine intentions.
To honor Saturn in Pisces, let’s seek a guidance from trusted Tarot or Oracle cards! They can offer a unique perspective on our situation, helping us to identify potential obstacles and opportunities we may not have considered before. By taking time to consult them, we can gain a deeper understanding of our circumstances and make more informed decisions about how to move forward.

Here's a sample reading I did for myself;
Card 1: The Present Situation - Eight of Swords
The Eight of Swords is a card that represents the feeling of mentally trapped or stuck in a situation. It can indicate a sense of powerlessness, fear, and anxiety. The challenges that one may be facing can take different forms. For instance, it could be a toxic work environment, a difficult romantic relationship, a health issue, or a financial struggle. In my case, it is the overwhelming feeling of undertaking the reorganization of my workspace.
Card 2: The Obstacle - Nine of Pentacles
Nine of Pentacles speaks to the idea of self-sufficiency and being able to achieve your goals independently, without the need for external support or validation. However, this card may imply that self-reliance is the cause of obstacles that want to do everything myself, and seeking help when necessary can be beneficial in achieving my goal.
Card 3: The Hidden Influences - Knight of Pentacles
In this position, the Knight of Pentacles appears to me in the form of my husband, whom I have already asked for help. However, I now feel that the timing of starting this process is entirely at my husband's mercy, and I may need to bribe him to make him willing. The Knight of Pentacles is the slowest of the four knights, but he will surely get the job done with excellence, so I will wait!
Card 4: The Guidance - Eight of Pentacles Rx
The Eight of Pentacles reversed suggests the need to take a closer look at one's work or career path. This could mean reevaluating one's current approach to their professional life and considering whether it aligns with their long-term goals and priorities. It may be a signal to step back from the daily grind and reflect on what they truly want out of their career.
As per the prior card, I should have some time before taking action to organize (aka, waiting for my husband). This provides an opportunity for me to develop a clearer vision for my future and plan the organizing process accordingly. Additionally, it may be an excellent time to consider acquiring new skills and knowledge, such as taking courses or attending seminars, to enhance my professional development.
Card 5: The Outcome - Justice
The fifth card I drew is Justice, which suggests that the outcome of the situation will be fair and just, with all parties receiving what they are due. This is a very positive omen, as it indicates that the resolution of the situation will be a just one.
The sequence of cards, from the Eight of Swords to Justice, is particularly encouraging. The overwhelming feeling of being surrounded by swords stuck in the ground has shifted to a single sword held upright with conviction, which seems to suggest a successful outcome.
With this in mind, it is important to remain patient and maintain a positive attitude, as the cards indicate that things will work out in a divine timing. Speaking of the timing, as Justice card correspondent to astrological sign of Libra, may indicating the process will be completed by Libra season.
