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.
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.
