MON APR 26.
The Moon enters intense and emo Scorpio at 9:18 AM PST, to trine Mars in Cancer, oppose the Sun and Uranus in Taurus. Having these aspects riding off of a lunar square to Pluto and trine to Jupiter, it’s possible for the morning to start out with some compelling yet very odd/unconventional emotional pulls and/or interpersonal dynamics. There could be some odd rumination’s or preoccupations, and perhaps memories from the past are a driving force in some way. Simultaneously there can be an impatience around the future that’s driving this, but regardless there can be some insatiable curiosities and a compelling desire to plummet certain psychological and emotional depths and poke and prod around at what is buried or submerged, exploring our most authentic and instinctual desires. There’s an odd detachment and objectivity here with so many planetary aspects to Uranus, and this can also see some surprising or unexpected feelings or even memories come up that can see odd cravings or meanderings into the heart and dark corners of the psyche. The Moon trine Mars is driven, energized, and assertive, and emotions and instincts can take on a momentum all their own. There’s a certain emotional restlessness to these configurations, but the energy can be harnessed into an almost obsessive productivity or desire to make some kind of radical breakthroughs, changes, or new approaches-even if only modest ones. The Moon goes on to oppose Venus as well as square Saturn and it’s possible these aspects can make us a little uncomfortable with the intensity and/or unpredictability of our own feelings, instincts, and drives, perhaps because we know they’re out of step with those of others, or outside of some established norms, rules, or what is considered “normal” or conventional. The Full Moon occurs at 8:32 PM PST. Venus, Mercury, the Sun and Moon all square Saturn now, while conjunct Uranus, and we can feel inhibited, blocked, or curtailed in some way from surrendering to the compelling pulls of various instincts and drives, or doing or saying something that could really shake something up, particularly interpersonally. This is a quirky and bizarre energy that seems to be seeking some emotionally transformative or even cathartic experience that satiate’s the cravings of the soul, body, heart, and psyche, but it could seem one has to go to0 far out on a limb to scratch that itch than is comfortable (or permissible for the time being perhaps.) It could see us seek comfort and connection, or transformative experiences, in unusual or surprising ways. Needless to say, this Full Moon could result in some interesting alchemical processes, radical transformations, and there could be some shocks, downloads, upgrades, and surprises unfolding that can see some new and exciting things becoming more established, even though there’s an element of instability, challenge, experimentation, and a need for discipline to it all. There’s a need to find consistency within unpredictability here.
TUES APR 27.
Today see’s the Moon in investigative and probing Scorpio opposing Venus and Mercury in Taurus and forming a trine to Neptune in Pisces in the afternoon. The Neptune trine can help disinhibit people a little bit around tense or polarizing issues, charged dynamics, or things, situations or people that are outside our usual comfort zones or established norms. Neptune promotes tolerance, understanding, compassion and receptivity. This can also make us a bit shy and reflective, as the Moon in Scorpio is a bit introverted and highly sensitive to stimuli and even just the oscillating waves of our own internal landscapes. Pluto, ruler of Scorpio , also stations retrograde today, which can see a prolonged reflection on power, and power dynamics, collectively as well as personally. The Moon goes on to square Jupiter in unorthodox Aquarius in the early evening, and this can see a lot of idealism and some larger than life feelings, some of which are perhaps very surprising. There could be some surprising news or reveals, or in the very least an element of suspense or a build up. It’s possible something is reaching a pinnacle phase and breaking new ground. Late evening see’s a lunar sextile to Pluto, which can see an intense, almost investigative focus and high idealism around something. We can be in completely new territory in some area, and this can really see the imaginative and emotive faculties engaged. The lunar trine to Neptune combined with the link to Pluto can see a very impressionable atmosphere where things can touch us deeply and pique our curiosity and desire to learn, grow, and expand. Tomorrow will see a more outgoing and encouraging atmosphere.
WED APR 28.
This morning see’s the Moon enter happy go lucky Sagittarius, to trine Chiron in Aries. This can see a boost in morale and perhaps some feelings of restraint or holding back can begin to feel a bit easier to challenge, whether these inclinations have been internally or externally generated, or both, there can be more courage and optimism. Saturn has loosened it’s grip on Mercury, and this can see certain boundaries around communications begin to dissolve as well. Mercury now makes a sextile to Neptune and a trine to Pluto, and this can encourage more communication in direct and indirect ways. These configurations can provide opportunities to connect mentally and spiritually. The Sun and Venus still square Saturn, so the breaks are still pressed a bit in regards to interpersonal exchanges, but Mercury creates an opening for relating and connecting in friendly and impactful ways that can even be healing and beneficial. There can be some synchronicities under these aspects that make an impact, and also the possibility for some unusual insights, instinctual hunches, good intuition, or simply some “uncommon common sense” that’s perhaps been sorely needed or even previously tuned out. Perhaps it’s been there all along but is only just now being recognized as having merit. Needless to say, Mercury can begin to build connections, and Saturn soon loosens it’s grip on Venus as well, which can see things warm up interpersonally rather nicely in the coming days. Perhaps fear or inhibitions or other challenges or responsibilities have hampered things. Mercury makes a compelling case to follow a hunch, instinct, or compelling curiosity towards something or someone unusual to it’s natural conclusion. The lunar link to Chiron can see more courage and confidence as well, which can bring us into some unusual territory.
THURS APR 29.
Today see’s the Moon in Sagittarius square Neptune which can see some unusual situations or vague uncertainties, unknowns, confusion and mystery. Venus is released by Saturn from it’s tense square, so perhaps we too are beginning to feel a little less apprehensive, but this brings up unknowns that inhibitions or blockages prevented us from having to think (or feel) about. What kind of rabbit hole is this? We may wrestle with conflicting instincts to restrain and hold back or lunge forward bravely into unknowns. Mars in Cancer trine Jupiter craves security, comfort, and connection as much as Venus in Taurus does, and this can be harder to deny as restraining influences let up. Venus joins Mercury in a sextile to Neptune, so this doubly emphasizes a lowering of guards and a desire to seek understanding, compassion and connectivity. The Mercury/Pluto link emphasizes authenticity as well. The Moon links up with the asteroid Juno which can see beneficial and supportive connections between others that can be uplifting, even though perhaps unusual, confusing, or bemusing with the lunar square to Neptune. Regardless, there can be something about whatever is happening that can boost optimism, faith, and a feeling of resolve as we head into the weekend.
FRI APR 30.
The Moon enters Capricorn at 9:16 AM, getting the end of the week off to an earthy, practical, and very physical start. There can be a lot of energy today, or at least, a lot demanded of us in some way, with the Moon opposite Mars in Cancer, square Chiron, and trine the Sun and Uranus. There can be a sort of anticipatory electricity and tension in the air that can see some nervous excitement, but also some sensitivity, weakness or vulnerability. Perhaps we feel ill prepared. Maybe there’s something positive to look forward to and prepare for that has caught us by surprise. There can be changes and shifts happening that create tension and excitement, and a need to exert ourselves to get things done or meet the demands of the day. The weekend get’s off to a surprising start and can see some interesting exchanges that can actually be really refreshing, pleasant, energizing but also easy going. There’s a bit of sensitivity or vulnerability present with the Moon square Chiron, but enough resolution and backbone towards positive risk taking to overcome it.
SAT MAY 1.
Today see’s some pleasant and surprising maths, that could see us willing to risk some vulnerability in the name of connecting in new ways or taking a risk socially or interpersonally. It can be easy going but also somewhat exhilarating to try something new or take a new approach to something (or someone) already established. This can see some pleasant surprises interpersonally, socially, or financially, but it does require lowering the defenses, which self protective Mars in Cancer now squaring up to Chiron may find hard to do, as old wounds could be triggered. But it seems the desire to shake things up in a positive way might be too compelling to resist. The desire for personal connection socially or otherwise can be strong under these configurations. Pleasant times can be had and warm connections can be formed if these impulses are heeded. Something or someone can make quite an impact on us at this time. The Moon in down to earth Capricorn may not be the most demonstrative, but with trines to the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Uranus in easy going Taurus, and a conjunction to Pluto in Cap, with a sextile to Neptune thrown in later, breaking the ice can feel as natural as dirt. The Sun’s square to Saturn while conjunct Uranus can see some deliberating or slight inhibition, but the link to Uranus combined with all the other configurations can’t resist pushing the envelope just a little bit in order to satisfy curiosity or add a new dimension to exchanges that can make the day more enjoyable. This can see some revealing talks, or surprising interpersonal insights. Something about today can significantly shift certain dynamics going forward in a positive and surprising way.
SUN MAY 2.
This morning see’s the Moon enter unorthodox Aquarius at 12:31 PM PST. Preceding that, we see the Moon in the final and most urgent degree of Capricorn conjunct Pluto, so if we deliberated yesterday about doing or saying something, today we may just cave into the instinct to go ahead and go with the flow of it. This can see some decisive moves socially and interpersonally that change the game significantly. This can result in some surprising conversations, and perhaps even some deals and handshakes. With Pluto involved, and now retrograde, we could even be getting a second shot at something, or a chance to reflect, go within, and do some shadow work. Maybe get honest with ourselves about what we really actually want and why. The Moon in Aquarius creates some emotional detachment after what were perhaps some peak moments, in the very least, internally/psychologically. On the one hand we can feel more settled about something or committed to a particular direction, group, situation, project or person, (Moon conjunct Saturn), on the other hand, something has shifted significantly in a way that can feel “fated” (Moon square Uranus and trine the North Node). There could be something kind of wild about whatever’s happening now, whether personally or collectively at large (probably all of the above…as above so below as the saying goes.) What’s been said has been said, what’s been done, and put out there has been done and put out there. The Moon conjunct Saturn binds us and reminds us that now we’re committed to a change in direction, and it can actually be a really healing and exciting direction even if it was really unexpected.
