With Mercury squaring Chiron today you may feel as if you are a bit off balance. On top of this there is also a full moon in Gemini which gives you new thoughts and experiences.
Looks like it’s time to contemplate where you have come from and where you are going. Not to mention the small twist of where you are now.
If life has not been going your way lately take heart that today looks to be quite cathartic for you in finding a path that suits you better.
Others may be looking to you to lead them or show them the way in what is possible and while you are finding your own feet you may have some trouble with this. Nevertheless you have been given wings to fly and fly you will even if it is a small step.
As you look around you today you may find the past, present and future colliding as well as laid out before you and clearly being seen for what it is. What will you do next?
You may feel as if the ground has been knocked out from under you which is disorientating but rest assured you will soon pick yourself up in a different way to the past which also gives you new ideas on what you will do next.
You may not be ready to take a leap of faith and launch yourself forward but you will certainly be feeling as if you have been given a helping hand in finding what it is you want and who you are.
Like a caterpillar emerging from its cocoon you will find this metamorphosis not only working in your favour but also a chance to show off your skills to others who may be following your path.

Today you may have to step up and approach your responsibilities from a more serious and authoritative standpoint.
The Emperor card is all about power, success, reputation and public standing. But these are all relative terms and are not necessarily related to profession. They’re just as likely tied to responsibilities around the home or within a group of peers.
In this version of the card, the Emperor is a polar bear looking off into the distance as he keeps protective watch over a young changeling child. The ground is frozen solid, what little brush there is is sparse and snowflakes are falling all around them.
As fierce a guardian as this papa bear may be, there’s a gentle element to the way he protects the child. This is very fitting of the Emperor archetype, which is also quite fatherly and paternal.
Although there are masculine elements to the Emperor card, the references don’t only apply to men. It can refer to a single mother, a career-woman, or a woman with important responsibilities as well. It can also refer to a man in your life (or someone new coming in) who embodies these qualities.

The Hanged Man
Today you may have to reconcile yourself to the fact that good things come to those who wait. You may be frustrated over something that’s taken longer than expected to materialize — such as a job, promotion, relationship, financial security, etc.
The Hanged Man refers to delays and obstacles, but often these are necessary — even if you don’t yet understand why.
In this version of the card we see an old tree with a human face and twisted branches that appear to be taking on a human form. Moss grows on the tree’s roots and acorns grow from its limbs. Vines are also wending their way up the trunk from one of the tree’s “hands,” while a bird’s nest rests in the other.
This tree has become “home” to a number of woodland creatures. In addition to the family of birds, there’s a squirrel scampering down one side and a spider and web on the other.
The Hanged Man refers to sacrifices as well as delays. Most often this is necessary and is for the greater good. We can see that this is the case with our tree.
