Today’s I Ching Hexagram for May 28th is 8:Holding Together

8: Holding Together


Hexagram 8

General Meaning: Holding together brings success. But high-level teamwork is achieved only when the right players on the right team share a clear goal at the right time. A team forms its relationships in a delicate manner; chemistry is brewed in the vat of shared experiences. Latecomers cannot share the same depth of union as earlier members. Whole-hearted commitment is required for team success.

All successful teams have a shared vision and a leader. If a team’s leadership is up to the challenge, the team will prosper. In personal and business affairs, just as in basketball, it is hard to win without a strong center.

Accept the structure of the team or partnership if you wish to receive its benefits — otherwise go off on your own. In holding together with others, cling to your own principles, but be willing to subordinate your personal desires for the good of the group. Perhaps you are contemplating becoming a leader of some group; remember that to become the center of influence binding people together is not only a considerable challenge but a serious responsibility. Assess yourself carefully first to see if you are up to the task. If not, it would be better not to commit rather than to go forward without proper preparation.


Today’s Tarot Card for May 28th is The Chariot

The Chariot

This Tarot Deck: Art Nouveau

General Meaning: Traditionally, the card usually entitled the Chariot points to a triumphal feeling of freedom, as if the charioteer is being paraded through the streets as a hero (or heroine). The card reflects congratulations for high achievement, and serves as a sign of empowerment.

Huge wheels and frisky steeds speed the rate at which the driver’s willpower can be realized. This kind of charge makes more of the world accessible to anyone ambitious enough to seize the Chariot’s reins. But there is danger in this feeling of freedom, because of the increased rate of change and its power to magnify mistakes in judgment. As a seasoned warrior, the Charioteer is called upon to be extra attentive to the way ahead.

Your Daily Horoscopes for May 28th

The courageous Aries Moon empowers us to express our feelings without thinking about the effect we have on others. Often spontaneity works in our favor, but today’s whimsical Gemini Sun runs into uncompromising Pluto. Revealing our emotions haphazardly can spark an intense reaction from someone who may be threatened by our words. Fortunately, assertive Mars forms a creative quintile with compassionate Neptune, turning us into spiritual warriors.


Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You must be on guard against your tendency to respond too quickly when interacting with others today. Someone might mistake your intensity for anger, or it’s possible that you’re really mad and don’t even realize it. Either way, it’s healthyto take a few relaxing breaths to check in with your emotions before losing your temper and dumping unresolved feelings onto those closest to you.



Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

You may have a very vivid dream that doesn’t make any sense to you, no matter how you try to interpret it. Oddly enough, you could be reminded of the nonsensical images when something happens during the day to bring the entire fantasy back to consciousness. There’s no need to force rational meaning onto a mysterious message from your unconscious. Simply remembering dreams is sufficient for them to work their magic.



Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

It’s challenging to know how hard to push now because others may take offense with your insistence. But your actions come in bursts today; you’re enthusiastic one moment and then feeling spaced out the next. Nevertheless, your uneven energetic flow will likely be confusing to others, so take the time to explain yourself instead of talking in clever riddles that leave too much room for misinterpretation.


Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

Your friends and family may think that you are being too much of a mother hen who smothers them with love today. But you know what needs to be done and are quickly irritated when no one else seems to have a clue. Even if you’re eager to jump in and fix what’s wrong, it’s smart to see if anyone even wants your help. If you feel compelled to assist, your deeds will probably be perceived as meddling. However, if you come from a place of love, your simple presence can be a healing force.



Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You may need to handle an unresolved relationship issue today. Your friends might think that you have been exerting too much control, but you don’t see it that way at all. Instead of allowing yourself to become irritated because others don’t really understand you, take this as an opportunity to show your true colors. Just keep in mind that being more flexible will help you overcome your petty annoyances and enable others to see the real you.


Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You have a certain idea about how your day should go and you want to put things back on track when it begins to deviate from your plan. You would like to show a more easygoing side of yourself today, but it’s challenging to let go of control when you believe that you are holding it all together. Unfortunately, your priorities may be bent out of shape. Consider this situation as an opportunity to develop trust. Sure, you could engineer more perfection into your world now, but the cost may be higher than you realize.


Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You would prefer it if your friends were more cooperative today, but instead they seem to be acting contrary to your wishes just to agitate you. However, they actually just want to do as they wish and be free of judgment. Examine your unspoken expectations before criticizing someone else. You may be wiser now to dig into your shadow and look at your own motives before coming down hard on others.



Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

The Moon in hotheaded Aries suggests that you might have to lose your temper today to establish an important boundary. Unfortunately, it may be impossible to know how you’re doing because your subjectivity allows you to see things the way you want them to be, rather than how they actually are. Nevertheless, trusting your intuition is a good idea now as long as you don’t let fear overrule love.


Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You are often inspired by hope, but today it’s more important to let practicality be your guide, because the present moment is more significant than any future possibility. Still, your dreams don’t need to be shelved; they just have to be relocated into the here and now. Focusing on your immediate concerns is your best strategy to keep your life from growing even more complicated.



Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You may believe that you don’t have to follow every rule to the letter today since it feels as if you are responsible to a higher spiritual authority. Be careful, for this is a tricky rationalization and you don’t have cosmic permission to be destructive or reckless. You can, however, be imaginative and original. Just remember that intelligence is wasted unless you’re also acting with compassion. It’s more important to be caring than to be clever.



Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You have been zapped recently by Uranus the Awakener and it’s time to finish your joyride and ease yourself back to reality. However, there’s no need to worry if you don’t have anything to show from your exciting little junket; your altered perspective is enough. But even if you think you know the truth now, remember that things are still in flux. Although the pace of your life is slower today, stay flexible and remain open to change.



Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

It’s difficult to make choices today because your reality is littered with ideas that have leaked through from your imagination. Unfortunately, you might be challenged to distinguish fact from fiction. Fortunately, the overflow from your dreams can make your life more interesting. Don’t try to establish the truth yet; just enjoy the show and wait until tomorrow to decipher the meaning of it all.
