The week of April 25, 2022, the Moon moves into watery Pisces then into fiery Aries on Wednesday and into earthy Taurus on Thursday. Saturday 4:28pm EDT THE BIG EVENT!!! WELCOME TO ECLIPSE SEASON!!!!
The Lunar aspects
Monday the Moon sextiles the Sun and conjuncts Mars. Not only will our emotions be highlighted but drive and aggression is a prominent and direct aspect heading our way.
Tuesday the Moon sextiles Uranus, a good day for out of the blue “news” or shocking news. Also good for a leveled-up kind of idea! You should be thinking of your technology today as we will begin a Mercury shadow period tomorrow on Wednesday, so make plans to back up your technology and other things that may need to be protected as we enter the Mercury ‘shadow’ retrograde period.
Wednesday looks to be the busiest day when the Moon conjuncts Venus and then Neptune and Jupiter. Then will sextile Mercury and Pluto. Venus the planet of beauty and the desire for inclusiveness, paired with Neptune could give energy for party planning, that dreaminess and with Jupiter around the planet of expansiveness? Lets just say if you’re the father of the bride I would be flexing your wallet! A perfect time to plan a wedding but could get bigger than you planned! The Moons sextiles to Mercury and Pluto could very well lend energy for the entire event to move quickly and be transformational. Or you have decided to invest in art!
Friday the Moon sextiles Saturn and squares Pluto, we know the Moon is what triggers things and with the nice aspect to Saturn we can find stability or longevity (what Saturn is known for) but we may feel tension with Pluto. As Pluto’s function is to change what no longer serves us, even though we find that comfortable! Well life moves on and so must we, after all life means change!
Saturday the Moon conjuncts the Sun at 4:28pm edt for a partial Solar eclipse a 10° 28” of Taurus! According to Bernadette Brady this eclipse will associate with: Father figures, responsibility, and control. As well as accept commitments which could occur due to the inability of another person. Part of the Saros Cycle 6 North started May 15, 850CE and ends June 15, 2094. That first eclipse and Ethiopian Goat hearder noticed his goats acting funny after chewing coffee beans and voila’ we have COFFEE! I wonder how that will change up in 2094? The Moon sextiling Mars can either bring drive or aggression to the day! It can as well bring accidents, don’t take chances with falls and knives.
Sunday the Moon conjuncts Uranus and squares Saturn and sextiles Neptune. The Moon is giving Saturn and Neptune the ability to shock and awe and bring new ideas in this area of your life.
Wednesday Mercury sextiles Jupiter, without blinkin an eye it screams fast and big! The other aspect is Venus conjunct Neptune. I have to laugh cause the only thing popping into my mind is I know someone who is trying to open a bar and these aspects would certainly be beneficial with Venus wanting to bring people together with Neptune the planet the rules addictions, or dreamy states. Mercury the planet that speaks to commerce as well as news and then Jupiter the planet of expansive or something growing. Or for the average person a quick newsworthy large, inclusive get together with friends can be the energy! Back up your tech, back up, back up, back up… Mercury starts its retrograde “shadow” period today. Things may need to be done twice starting now, or soon when Mercury does go retrograde about May 10th.
Thursday Mercury trines Pluto, these two planets seem to go unnoticed but do pack a powerful energy. Commerce and transformation are the signifying words these planets bring to the table. And the Moon doesn’t make any aspects either, hmmm a quiet day?!
Friday Pluto goes retrograde at 2:38pm and Mercury moves into Gemini at 6:23pm. Pluto is an outer Planet and when it stations retrograde its impact isn’t really felt sharply here, unless it has an aspect to one of your planets in your natal chart. Mercury will be feeling strong as it will be at home in this sign.
Saturday Venus conjuncts Jupiter, this is good on top of good! Both of these are benefic planets, and we should expect good things to come from this planet aspect. This is just about 45 min after the eclipse which happens at 4:28 pm. My friend Lynda and I did an episode on eclipses be sure to check it out at Solar Eclipses and Astrology on Astro_babble you tube channel. This is a solar eclipse so make sure you have your viewing protection, as this luminary exhibit can be harmful to your eyes. It is unsafe to look at it without proper eye protection.
Sunday Venus sextiles Pluto, which I’m sure has something to do with the theme that will be playing out in the next few months when Pluto stations direct October 8, 2022.
These are very good times considering the benefics will be aspecting each other, and in their domicile and exaltation! A lot of planetary action and for sure there will be something this week to journal about! Keep a pen handy!
The week of April 18, 2022, the Moon moves from watery Scorpio into fiery Sagittarius Monday evening, then into earthy Capricorn Wednesday. She will move into airy Aquarius Saturday early morning.
The Lunar aspects
Monday not the busiest Lunar day, but with all of the planetary aspects, I feel you will find Monday to be particularly busy. The Moon squares Saturn, then trines Neptune and Jupiter and finally sextiles Pluto. The Moon in Scorpio is looking for hidden things, or the emotions that drive the structure. The trine to Neptune and Jupiter can give us a chance to think big. Can also be the planets responsible for making really big bad or uniformed decisions too!
Tuesday the Moon squares Mars. Emotions can either get heated and aggressive or acting impulsively can be the energy you’re trying to deal with, or on the other hand you may use your Mars (drive) in Pisces to create a water space.
Wednesday the Moon in Sagittarius squares Venus, sextiles Saturn then will square Neptune and Jupiter before she moves into Capricorn. Both planets Venus and the Moon are ruled by Jupiter and on Wednesday Jupiter is very strong. This should create a nice transit although may require work, a benefic event can be the achieved. Venus will bring a beautifying project while Saturn will help make sure the rules are followed. Then again, the Neptune and Jupiter aspecting the Moon with a hard aspect should produce action, and with Neptune in the mix make sure you know all the details.
Thursday the Moon trines the Sun sextiles Mars and then trines Uranus. May need to prepare for an abrupt situation. Or an out-of-control urge if you let Mars call the shots. Freedom and the urge to fight for it may be another way we will feel this energy.
Friday the Moon sextiles Venus trines Mercury sextiles Neptune and Jupiter and the will conjunct Pluto. This is the busiest Lunar day so a lot of emotions may surface. The Moon will trigger Venus themes beauty, love and inclusiveness or at least talking about them with Mercury in the mix. With Neptune and Jupiter in the mix as well could give you a false feeling everything will work out without proper planning. The Moon conjunct Pluto the strongest aspect could lead to a change or may have brought something out in the open that was hidden.
Saturday the Moon squares the Taurus Sun could bring feelings of concern and security of others. Usually, a square signifies tension or can produce action.
Sunday the Moon squares Uranus conjuncts Saturn and squares Mercury. This aspect can produce great shock, but can as well offer a stable out of the box solution. Tension is one of the aspects so pick your battles wisely.
The Planetary aspects
Monday Mercury conjuncts Uranus then Venus will sextile Uranus and the Sun will square Pluto. Sudden and shocking news can be expected as well as an urge for independence in a relationship. Power struggles can be at the forefront. A quick mind, inventiveness, breakthroughs, may be the energy felt. Social restlessness, stubbornness and overstimulation may be the negative manifestations of these planet aspects.
Tuesday the Sun moves into Taurus giving us a heightened thoughts around security and survival. The more tangible things we have in our lives.
Sunday Uranus squares Saturn and then Mercury sextiles Neptune. Setting rules or looking at a new way to structure and form a foundation may help your situation. On the negative side a difference of opinion or an unwillingness to get on board with a new way of doing things may prove tough. Impractical thinking and misunderstandings can lead to errors. Monday, Tuesday and Sunday have the planetary movements, but do not discount the Moon as she typically has her hand in the mix to get the ball rolling. Keep journaling and enjoy the week!
The week of April 11, 2022, the Moon starts out in Fiery Leo today, moves into earthy Virgo Tuesday. A busy Lunar day will be on Thursday when she moves into airy Libra, and not to be outdone the second busy Lunar day will be on Saturday when the Moon moves into fiery Scorpio, right after the Libran Full Moon at 5:57 pm on Saturday.
The Lunar aspects
Monday the Moon squares Uranus, trines the Sun and then opposes Saturn. That Leo Moon may shine a light on something that can be shocking, or out of the ordinary. With the hard aspect with Saturn could give us a sense of being isolated or cut off. The Lunar Nodes are directly squaring Saturn in Aquarius, giving us an opportunity to make a choice, best on how we want to serve our ‘soul’.
Tuesday the Moon opposes Mars and then trines Mercury. Mars known to bring around his aggressive or possibly abrasive flair to the mix can potentially create THAT kind of flavor to communication, what Mercury is known for. With the Moon moving into Virgo that day it would be good to keep the details in mind.
Wednesday the Moon opposes Venus and trines Uranus. This is great energy for developing your creativity. Financial speculation may have a bit of a drive here, so be sure to have all your facts and research done, particularly with Neptune so very close to Venus.
Thursday the Moon opposes Neptune and Jupiter and then trines Pluto. We can feel the expansive fogginess this aspect brings paired with the intense feelings Pluto will bring. A great time to day dream, maybe even problem solve, with the intense or transformational power Pluto brings, may just give way to the abrupt shift needed for that change to occur.
Friday the Moon makes 3 very minor aspects with Mercury, Venus and Uranus, all leading to unrealized energy spent.
Saturday the Moon trines Saturn before we get the Full Moon happening at 2:55 pm edt. Then squares Pluto and trines Mars. The stable Saturnian energy can stabilize change we’re looking to make, supporting that effort is Mars, our planet of drive. Of course we all have free will and this energy can go sideways as well.
Tuesday Jupiter Conjuncts Neptune and the Sun sextiles Saturn. The Jupiter and Neptune finally in their own domicile only happens every 165 years! This won’t last for long as Jupiter is running super fast and will exit Pisces in May.
Thursday Mars Moves into Pisces, he will join Jupiter, Venus & Neptune. He’ll have to play by Venus and Jupiter’s rules for a bit, so will be hopefully nicer, but still doing Marsy things such as water problems, lack of clarity or hidden issues, as well as wanting to be inclusive with that Venus energy. For sure a day to be notable in your journal. Sunday Mercury sextiles Venus, of all the aspects this is one of the most inclusive energies for the week. Great conversation and exchange of ideas! Technology can receive a boost with Uranus adding in its own powers. It feels like the energies are a bit free-er and therefore a bit busier as the Moon basically is opposing all of the planets this week engaging with their energies. Keep journaling & Happy Easter!!
The week of April 4, 2022, the Moon starts out in earthy Taurus and moves into airy Gemini. By Thursday she moves into watery Cancer and then into fiery Leo on Sunday.
The Lunar aspects
Monday tied for being the busiest Lunar day with Wednesday, the Moon is in Taurus making a square to Mars and Saturn a sextile to Jupiter and Neptune, then a trine to Pluto, finally a square to Venus will happen just before she moves into Gemini late night. That energy is sure to shake things up as a square aspect produces tension, while the sextiles and trines tend to offer easier energy to work with. That trine to Pluto speaks of a change as Pluto is known for its transformational energy.
Tuesday the Moon won’t aspect any planets today on the Mundane transit level. How it hits your chart (Moon in Gemini) will be where the energy is focused on today!
Wednesday the Moon sextiles the Sun, Mercury and will trine Saturn and Mars and find itself in a square to Jupiter and Neptune. Sextiles and trines are easy energy so the Sun, Mercury, Saturn and Mars will be easily able to express themselves. The Sun and Mercury may try to create a new idea as they sit in the cardinal sign of Aries. A good idea to be watchful as the Moon trines Saturn and Mars as those two are the malefics, we could see malefic actions taking place as the Moon is in an air sign, trine the malefics in the air sign of Aquarius. Toss in the challenging aspect of a square between the Moon and Jupiter and Neptune could indicate an expansive challenge, where the boundaries are not quite clear. OR simply a great opportunity to create (Jupiter/Neptune) a lasting project (Saturn/Mars) with the clear ability to express the idea (Mercury/Sun) to others.
Thursday the Moon trines Venus. After her besiegement between Saturn and Mars she is finally free and will be able to express herself from her exhalated house of Pisces. Finding herself in the same house as the other benefic, hopefully we have better luck bringing in the good things these two planets offer.
Friday the Moon sextiles Uranus, a planet so far this week staying a bit quiet, may raise its voice to be heard! As Uranus typically feeds us the shocking and unusual, may even offer a unique idea!
Saturday seems to be a busy Lunar day! She starts off with a square to the Sun and then later to Mercury. The easy energy for today will be the trine to Jupiter and Neptune. Jupiter a benefic can give us an expanse of things we like, with the energy of Neptune allowing for expansive thought! The Moon square the Sun and then Mercury can lead to conflict of what you ‘think’ you need to do sparing with what you ‘feel’ you need to do. The opposition of the Moon and Pluto brings in a change, the opposition is the second hardest aspect (a conjunct is the strongest) to go through, so challenging energy may be lurking.
Sunday the Moon simply moves into Leo, get ready to shine!
Monday Mars conjuncts Saturn, if ever there will be heavy energy today will be it. As these two are the two most malefic planets, this type of energy probably won’t feel good to most. Unless you have planned for it and ready to work with this energy, these planets typically set out to harm. Not a day to take chances and risks. However, the positive energy this combo holds can be a strong drive and stability to erect a building or something that can be long lasting! In the sign of Aquarius an endeavor to help the community may be realized.
Thursday Mercury in Aries will sextile Saturn. This type of energy can lead you to hearing a firm NO on a project you’re inquiring about. On the other hand, this would be great energy to work out those details as Mercury likes to do and create a firm plan, in which will appease Saturn.
Friday Mercury sextiles Mars, remember those plans yesterday? This is the energy to get things moving! With the detail-oriented Mercury and the drive of Mars, you have the planetary energy to really make a move! Sunday Mercury squares Pluto, we should expect news of change, albeit may be uncomfortable or unfamiliar! Venus and Mars were dancing in this house a while back causing tension. That area of your life can easily see a change coming soon! Finally at the end of the night Mercury changes signs and moves into Taurus, as I’ve said before if you have been reading my blogs from the get-go, always pay attention to when planets move into a new sign! This is energy where you could very easily see a shift in energy or planetary power. Keeping track of these shifts will help you to identify how these planets show up in your life, in case you ever want to get a natal reading, this information can help answer questions that may arise during a reading! How will these planets show up when they get activated!
