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.
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.
