ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF APR 12-18 2021




MON APR 12.

This morning begins with the Moon in late Aries, conjunct the Sun and Venus, trine Juno with the Sun and Moon both squaring up to Pluto. This can see an inner spark of intensity, but with a drive and determination to push through the residual funk of the Mars/Neptune square that perfected last week that may have seen our motivation or confidence a bit weakened or energy and will power sapped.  Although the energy of the New Moon has prompted new starts, it may have been accompanied by a bit of a slog in motivation or a few slip ups that may have meandered us slightly off track, but nonetheless, there is a decisive push forward, onward, and upward. This week will see Venus change signs into the steady, earthy and sensual Taurus, which will bring some practicality and focus to all Venus ruled matters. The Moon enters Taurus at 10:44 AM this morning, to conjoin Uranus while still holding a conjunction to Venus in the later degrees of Aries which suggests a push forward and a desire to shake things up in the name of progress. With The focus on Pluto via the solar, lunar and Venus squares there is an intense drive for reform and transformation, and to overcome weakening influences and get a foothold on to breaking new ground and making headway. The Pluto squares have a curious chemistry of anxiousness and great power behind them, and the Sun highlights drive and willpower to really get things going and get on with things. Later a lunar semi square to Neptune can highlight some unknowns that can perhaps cause a feeling of slight uneasiness combined with the erratic nature of Uranus, but there is also a penchant here for great innovation and resourcefulness and the ability to dig deep to access reserves. Tomorrow might see some unexpected challenges but also the discipline to see them through and improvise solutions. 


TUES APR 13. 

Today see’s the Moon in slow and tactile Taurus conjunct Uranus while squaring up to Saturn. This can bring forth the need of resilience and to put in the work and discipline into something. With Venus in the final and most urgent degree of Aries there can be a certain feistiness and a need for patience and determination around something, as there can be a strong desire to “get to the point already,” or take action to see tangible progress and evidence of change. The lunar square to Saturn necessitates patience and perseverance. Venus square Pluto can see an intense desire around something and around getting results YESTERDAY. The further away Mars get’s in degree from Neptune, the easier it will become to direct the will, harness energy, and feel more confidence again around initiatives or actions we may want to take. It’s been a somewhat draining and demoralizing influence that may have made staying on track in certain areas more difficult.  Thankfully Mars will move out of this constellation next Friday, but this will bring with it it’s own set of issues. For now it’s a matter of keeping the motivation and focus going to continue making leaps in progress, without losing faith or hope along the way. Late evening see’s the Moon sextile Neptune which can see the evening end on a note of visualizing the results we’d like to see make happen, and giving ourselves some time to dream without dropping the ball on our chosen trajectory. 


WED APR 14.

Today begins with the Moon in Taurus squaring up to Jupiter, sextile Neptune, and trine Pluto. Combined with the Sun’s aspects to Mercury, Venus, Mars and Jupiter, this can see some pushes forward on some big dreams. There can be a decent combination here of practicality and imagination/vision, and the planets in Aries want to get things going and take action. Venus enters money bags Taurus at 11:22 AM PST, and this increases the desire to see real results. It also increases the practicality and steadiness with which to achieve them. This can see a more steady rhythm established that was previously operating in fevered bursts, and because of this, big results and transformations can begin to unfold. There can be a lot of energy to make things manifest today with the practical lunation, but there may also be a need to fight a tendency towards laziness or indulgence in order to get the most out of these configurations. If you’re enjoying what you’re doing, you can get the best of both worlds and get a lot of pleasure out of an otherwise pragmatic process. The Moon shifts the emphasis on to communication and enters Gemini at 11:35 PM PST, which can see the wee hours take on a curious but serious vibe.


THUR APR 15.

Today see’s the Moon in Gemini trine Saturn and sextile Chiron. Mercury in Aries also conjoins Venus in early Taurus and sextiles Mars and Jupiter, which can see a curious (but serious) enthusiasm in the air, and there can be a drive towards communication, gathering intelligence, and taking action to make things happen either in the local environment or in regards to networking or even social media endeavors. A lunar semi square to Mercury can see a bit of squirreliness, and there may be a need to temper the responses or get grounded first before taking off in particular directions or going off on a tangent, but the lunar/Saturn trine helps keep things sensible and realistic, and minimize distractions. There can actually be some encouraging signs of stability or that our efforts in regards to something have promise and long term potential. The possibility for fortunate contacts isn’t entirely out of the question, but staying realistic in our assessment of situations and other people will be extra important under the Gemini lunation. 


THE WEEKEND.


FRI APR 16.

Today can see a lot of communications and a lot of busyness with the Moon in Gemini conjunct Mars, trine Saturn and square Neptune. There may be a lot to do or to get done, or a lot of conversations to have or loose ends to ties up. But the lunar square to Neptune can make for a loopy, somewhat draining and perhaps easily distracted atmosphere in spite of all the drive and energy available. The Moon goes on to trine Jupiter as well, and there can be a lot happening at once or a lot to consider, and there’s also a lot of optimism and idealism to balance out with practicality. Venus conjunct Uranus now can see a lot of changes going on interpersonally or financially, and it can be a somewhat unpredictable and experimental atmosphere in relation to Venus ruled themes. The amount of inspiration and enthusiasm available can be refreshing, but we should take care we’re seeing things clearly or reading all the fine print around something, or make sure we have all the facts or are seeing things clearly as opposed to running impetuously with the first thing we’re told, or worse, being manipulated or deceived. Later the Moon sextiles Mercury and this can bring certain things to light or place an emphasis on talks, written and spoken word, news, conversations, etc,… some of which can be very surprising or motivating. With the Mars/Neptune square no longer holding such a grip, we can be really motivated around communications or exchanging or gathering information, or having spirited but playful exchanges, kicking the weekend off on a curious, spirited, and inquisitive note. 


SAT APR 17.

This morning see’s the Gemini Moon carrying out it’s sextile to the Sun, conjunction to Mars, and trine to Jupiter,  throwing in a sextile to Venus when the Moon enters Cancer in the afternoon. This can see the morning begin with the playful curiosity and a desire to seek out enjoyment, stimulation, simple pleasures, as well as a sense of adventure to liven up routines that yesterday left off on. The afternoon see’s a comfy, sort of homey and cuddly vibe, and by evening there can be a bit of sensitivity in the air with a lunar square to Chiron while sextile Venus. This can see some interpersonal sensitivity or perhaps just a feeling of vulnerability or protectiveness, even though the emphasis is clearly on pleasure and creature comforts. Perhaps there’s some need for some self nurturing or for some sympathetic company or something that makes us feel more secure. 


SUN APR 18. 

Today see’s the Moon in emotive and comfort seeking Cancer make a sextile to Uranus while squaring Chiron, and later going on to form a reflective and compassionate trine to Neptune. This can see some surprising emotional experiences or perhaps something jarring that get’s us focused on our security somehow. Is there a slight disturbance in the force? Or does something have us somewhat on edge and needing to seek peace, reprieve, relief, release, or sanctuary in the early part of the day? Nonetheless, the lunar/Neptune trine places emphasis on cultivating inner peace. This can see the weekend wind down on a reflective, perhaps somewhat sensitive, dreamy, emo note. Rest while you can, as tomorrow and Tuesday/wed can see the potential for some intensity to navigate, and perhaps much that is unexpected. Hopefully it’s nothing whack and is just a lot of positive changes or breakthroughs.

ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF APR 5-11 2021




MON APR 5.

The Moon enters unconventional and detached Aquarius this morning at 6:04 AM PST, to sextile Mercury, now freshly in Aries, and square unpredictable Uranus while conjunct Saturn. There can be some surprising communications or news, and with Mercury now in Aries things are clearly set to head in fresh, new directions for the long term. There can be a lot of nervous excitement to today’s mathscape, but the lunar conjunction to Saturn that grows in strength as the day advances has a steadying influence. The New Moon in Aries at the very end of the week marks the planting of a new seed and a new era, and this week see’s an advancing in this direction, completing a process that we saw the glimpses of at the Libra Full Moon. Things are set to go in a very healing direction, and the Aries stellium provides courage to pioneer into new territory and take decisive actions. News or communications received today can increase courage and confidence or simply affirm that we are on the right track. There’s a compassion here for the underdog as well, and Saturn’s square to Uranus suggests authoritarian pushback is here to stay.  The Sun and Venus both sextile to Mars see’s a lot of passion, drive and enthusiasm, while the Mars square to Neptune is a test of faith (and wits). Lunar contacts to the nodes indicate things are steering in a fated direction, and this can involve new people coming into the fray or already established partnerships taking a new tack. Today’s configurations have a very independent energy about them and there can be excitement building around new initiatives, new conversations, new arrangements, and new interactions getting off the ground. Tomorrow can see a lot of action and enthusiasm, and perhaps some surprises as well. 


TUES APR 6.

Today see’s the Moon in Aquarius sextile the Sun and Venus in Aries, trine Mars in Gemini, and conjunct Saturn and Jupiter. This can see a lot of passion and enthusiasm around communication initiatives and in regards to things going on in the local environment, neighborhood, social networking and the like. Today looks surprisingly pleasant and exciting, and although there is a lot of independence, there is also a lot of inspiration around partnerships, friendships, and social networks, and the lunar contact to Juno can bring us into contact with others who encourage our self empowerment and inspire us to learn and grow.  Today is rife with passion and motivation, although things can feel undermined by the Mars/Neptune square causing lags, glitches, confusion, or disappointments. In spite of this it can be easy to find things to be optimistic and excited about. The Aquarius lunation remains a bit detached, which can be helpful in the face of so much giddiness and enthusiasm. There’s a focus today on enjoyment, pleasure, relationships, perhaps even spontaneous get togethers or engagement in sports or other things that get the body moving. Over all, today looks packed with energy and enthusiasm and a desire to seek out pleasant experiences that get the endorphins and positive vibes flowing. There’s a lot of curiosity, courage, and a sense of adventure in today’s configurations. A good day for an outing.


WED APR 7.

Today begins with the Moon void of course in Aquarius, to enter reflective Pisces at 1:30 PM PST. Perhaps yesterdays dynamic romps and excited, action oriented energy prompts a more dreamy and reflective frame today. There’s definitely been much that’s has optimism levels up, and the Pisces lunation can see the imagination and capacity for fantasy fully engaged and having visions of all the future possibilities. Today can see a lot of dreaming and fantasizing, perhaps around creative projects, love, relationships, beauty/aesthetics. With Venus sextile both Mars and Jupiter, while squaring Pluto, there is a very driven, passionate and enthusiastic energy around all of these things, and the Pisces lunation can bring out our idealism and capacity for creative visualization. It’s a more private, reflective, sensitive and retiring energy than the previous day, but the Aries stellium doesn’t let the beat drop. This lunation can just see us taking things in and perhaps there’s a bit of a preparatory feeling around it, seeing as how there is a New Moon in Aries on Sunday. All the other configurations involved here show that there is definitely an emphasis on passion, enthusiasm, partnerships, creative projects, and things that get our motivation going and make us feel more alive and excited. 


THURS APR 8.

This morning see’s the Moon in Pisces sextile innovative Uranus, and this can see creativity and the imagination highly stimulated. Visions of the future, and other various fantasies can be all over the map. There can be some interesting psychic downloads, curious synchronicities, intuitive hunches, ESP experiences, or inspiration and strokes of creative genius from out of the blue. Also possible are some emotional revelations or realizations. Noon see’s the Moon go on to conjunct Neptune which adds even more serendipity and fantasy to this dreamy mathscape. Later on, the Moon squares Mars, and this can sap energy a bit, or see some confusion, disappointment, or irritability with wishy washiness, deception, or a lack of clarity, resolve, or clear direction around something or someone. Perhaps it’s just impatience around a dream or something we’ve got high ideals around, but this influence could also be excellent for creative activities or projects. Today also sees the perfection of the Mars/Neptune square, an influence which has created confusion, lack of clarity, or undermined confidence. This now peaks, and working through any weakening, disappointing, or undermining influences that may be sapping resolve or creating self doubts will be key to getting through the muck. We might worry we're being too hopeful or idealistic about something or if it's too good to be true. The evening hours can be wistful, and there can be a slight edginess around a desire to make something happen, but there can also be a need to gather more energy, clarity or confidence in execution. There can be something we feel really driven around, but simultaneously we may not be 100 percent confident around some rainbow we're chasing, and may even wonder if we're going crazy, being mislead, or overly idealistic. This weekend can see a culmination of sorts. The Aries stellium wants to bravely trudge ahead where angels fear to tread. Just be careful not to be mislead. 


THE WEEKEND. 


FRI APR 9.

Today see’s the Moon in late Pisces conjunct Neptune, squaring up to Mars, and building a sextile to Pluto. There’s something confusing and compelling about these configurations, and the stellium in Aries see’s a passionate and compelling drive around something, while the Mars/Neptune conjunction makes us wonder if it's all just a beautiful mirage, a trick, fantasy or a delusion, making us doubt or question whatever we're doing or feeling. The Sun is now conjunct both Mercury and Venus, highlighting partnerships and communications, and the desire to get certain conversations started. This can see a more assertive, courageous and confrontational atmosphere building, but for now, under the Pisces lunation, much is still being thought about, dreamed about or prepared for energetically. The lunar square to Mars along with the Mars/Neptune perfection suggests confused drives or perhaps there’s something undermining a more direct or confident approach to something for the time being. It can create a lack of certainty or sure footedness, as these aspects are a bit drunk at the wheel, and we may wonder if we're being over optimistic or overly idealistic about something, but the lunar sextile to Pluto has an undeniable power, resilience, compulsion, and strong will to mould things in the manner of our choosing. It may just be a matter of faith in the face of doubt, uncertainty, or vulnerability in the face of compelling pulls. Nonetheless, there’s a potent drive to manifest ideals into reality. The Moon enters Aries at 11:11 PM PST, conjunct Chiron, suggesting courage in the face of fear, confusion, weakness, or lingering doubts. 


SAT APR 10.

Today see’s the Moon in Aries conjunct Chiron and Mercury, going on to sextile Saturn in Aquarius in the early evening. This places a focus on communications and conversations, and the courage and/or radicality required to initiate them. There can be some healing talks as well, and news or ideas exchanged can boost confidence or morale, and set a new precedent or establish a new foundation socially, interpersonally, or commercially. The Sun in Aries also sextiles Jupiter today, joining Mars. With the Sun aspecting Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Pluto now, there can be a lot transforming and also a lot to smile about, a lot of motivation, optimism, drive, intensity, and determination to change things for the better and open a whole new chapter that is more authentic, gratifying, -and self empowering. It’s possible that talks had or agreements made today can get something more firmly established or taken more seriously. Whatever it is that transpires, it looks set to leave us feeling optimistic, enthusiastic, and excited. Perhaps even a little obsessed. Look to the house in your whole house natal chart ruled by Aries to see where this fresh, revitalizing, intense, empowering and healing energy will be touching your life. 


SUN APR 11.

This evening we see the much awaited New Moon in Aries culminate at 7:31 PM PST. Today the Moon conjuncts the Sun, Mercury, and Venus in Aries, sextile Mars and Jupiter, trine Juno, and square Pluto. Wow. There is most certainly something coming to a head here, coming to a culmination. In spite of the fact that Aries is about independence, this new Moon can see pre-existing partnerships (business or personal) entering into a new, healing and promising phase that is mutually empowering. It can also see the arrival of positive new relationships that increase our sense of self empowerment. Regardless of whether you’re alone or not, this New Moon is totally feelin’ itself, and there can be a push for a major positive transformation. It’s like some kind of glow up or intense clearing away of negative forces or a tapping in to deep reserves of energy. There’s a lot to feel excited and positive about here, and there’s a sort of jubilance and vitality to these configurations, but also a lot of power behind it, as if a sort of compelling force is at work that is bringing about some sort of life affirming changes that were just inevitable and bound to happen. People coming into your life now will help push you further into your own self actualization, and it can feel good to bask in the warmth of mutual self empowerment, and to invite people in who’s energy can be motivating and good for us. Or this can be all going down solo. Regardless, the Pluto involvement here can also see a reflective intensity and a purging quality to this New Moon.
