Moonday Monday, Your Weekly Forecast 4/22-4/28

Happy Earth Day!

I love that we are starting this week off with celebrating Mother Earth in all her glory. In astrology I feel like the Earth often does not get discussed enough, as we tend to focus more on the planets influencing us down here, rather than how the Earth herself is influencing us all of the time. We benefit from finding ways to honor our divine mother who gives herself to all of us regardless of how she has been treated over the centuries. This is a time to acknowledge how our own environmental awareness impacts her in our corner of the world, and ask ourselves what we can do to align ourselves with honoring her and all of the creatures we share this space with.

Our physical bodies are an extension of her and we benefit from also evaluating what our relationship is to our bodies and whether we are honoring ourselves positively during this time.

Tarot Cards for the week:

The Empress, The Hierophant, The Devil, The Star, Death, The Tower, The Fool, The World.

Monday 4/22

Earth Day

Moon in Sagittarius

The Moon in Sagittarius has us longing for more out of life, and we may feel a need to expand and break free from structures or mundane routines today. It is positive, since it is Earth day, to take some time to spend outside and in nature, whether its on your lunch break, or after work.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Moon Opposition Mars in Gemini 11:35 AM

We may feel a lot of intense energy around our mental and internal process. We could feel impulsive or reactive during the hours of this transit and it is important that we try to be self aware about what we are putting out into our energy sphere at this time. Try moving heat through the body in a healthy way to get some of the tension worked through.

Sun in Taurus Conjunct Uranus in Taurus 4:05 PM

As if our Moon in Sagittarius and Opposition to Mars wasn't enough energy to have you feeling impulsive and spontaneous, the Sun meeting up with Uranus today could have us longing for change more than ever. On a personal level we are experiencing changes already, like the Tower card in the Tarot, a lot of these changes may be out of our control, and we may feel like it is hard keeping up with ourselves and our own lives right now. It is important that we embrace these changes and try to see this time as a large learning process. Resistance to change will only make things harder, and we benefit from being open to where we are being guided to listen to what is trying to break through. This energy will influence our sphere for the rest of the week.

Moon Square Neptune in Pisces 5:04 PM

We are inclined to feeling ungrounded in the evening. We also could feel a large need for escapism from reality the whole day today. So many of these transits have us needing something new out of life, or feeling like we need more. It is a dangerous territory to be in when we fall into the illusion that more will complete us in some way. The lesson here is to learn to move with the winds of change, while also feeding the need for spontaneity without losing yourself in the illusion that more or change is what is going to make you happy. It may help lead you to happiness, but happiness is a state of mind not something we find outside of ourselves. This transit could have us over indulging in some way or not seeing things clearly.

Tuesday 4/23

Moon Void of Course 4:43 AM

Moon enters Capricorn 3:50 PM

The Moons detriment is in Capricorn, and this can feel like we are putting a cork in our feelings for the time being, or shutting the door on some emotional work we are doing, so that we can focus more on getting grounded and pragmatic in our approach to things. This might be positive if we feel we have been living a little too much in fantasy land, or if it has been hard to keep our emotions contained. Use this energy as a way to focus on getting things done in the mundane and try to find healthy ways to stay grounded.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Moon Trine Uranus in Taurus 8:46 PM

This is a potentially positive time for social interactions and making progress towards goals we have in the physical world around our work and finances. We may feel empowered to begin planning steps towards something in the future and we could spend the evening discussing it out with friends.

Moon Trine Sun in Taurus 11:02 PM

This is a positive time for evaluating our goals and what grounds us in the physical. We may have a strong connection to our homes and families in the evening hours and we benefit from connecting to our physical world and bodies in a healthy way at this time. I think of the Empress card representing the feeling of this transit.

Wednesday 4/24

Moon in Capricorn

We have some tension causing transits with our Moon in Capricorn today that cause us to feel restricted in some way around our freedom to express ourselves. We could have a hard time articulating emotions today and we benefit from taking breaks and time outs from things we are working on. This might be a positive time to do the bare minimum and avoid having any serious conversations about any emotional processes as it is likely to not go over so well.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Moon Square Venus in Aries 12:02 AM

Tension and problems within our emotional process around relationships with others and to ourselves is enhanced. We may feel insecure or unaccepting of ourselves during the morning hours. We need to soften where we can and try to focus on self love during the day. It isn't positive to pick ourselves apart or our relationships for all the reasons why we are potentially unsatisfied at this time. There is a heightened possibility for disagreements and conflict between lovers, partners, and our families.

Moon Square Mercury in Aries 11:14 AM

This transit enhances tension around expression and communication of oneself. We may not be relating to ourselves well at this time, and we run the risk of coming off too assertive or aggressive today. We need to find a way to release tension without exploding on someone in our lives. This is a positive day for spending time alone and potentially exercising or going for a hike to get your blood working through you in a healthy way.

Pluto Stations Retrograde in Capricorn 11:45 AM

Pluto will station retrograde and be in retrograde motion until October 3rd of this year. This energy will have us in a deep transformative period for the following months around our physical world. Use this time as a time for evaluating what has been working and what needs to change. We may be asked to let go of living situations, jobs, or both during this time. This could also be an intense time for some in regard to their health. We need to make sure we are being attentive to what our bodies are telling us during this time and that we are listening and making the changes that will help us heal or take care of how we are ageing/changing during this time.

Thursday 4/25

Moon in Capricorn

Moon Void of Course 12:48 PM

We benefit from not trying to control the day too much and focusing on what we can manage within the scope of our day. Being realistic and pragmatic as much as possible about what we can really prioritize is important. We might be overly concerned or focused with our physical/financial success at this time and it is not helpful to get into a state of comparing ourselves to others at this time.

Strong Aspects During the Day PDT

Moon Conjunct Saturn in Capricorn 7:33 AM

We could feel depressed and sluggish during this transit in the morning hours and it may require us to meditate on gratitude for what IS going well rather than the areas of our lives we wish to improve. We could be overly concerned with our financial situation at this time.

Moon Conjunct Pluto RX in Capricorn 12:48 PM

Our need for transformation in the physical is enhanced during the day. We are also more sensitive than usual and we could find ourselves feeling depressed in our environment if its is not matching who we are at this time. We benefit from potentially getting rid of clutter or things in our space that are not offering anything to us at this time.

Friday 4/26

Moon enters Aquarius 2:27 AM

Last Quarter Moon in Aquarius 3:18 PM

The Last Quarter Moon allows for us to release any left over energy from our Full Moon intentions that is not serving us at this time. There is an ending of a cycle and we benefit from evaluating what beliefs or ideas are not serving us. With Aquarius being the energy, we could be thinking a lot about our group associations, friendship circles, or political beliefs and whether we are happy with them and what needs changing at this time.

Strong Aspects During the Day PDT

Moon Square Uranus in Taurus 7:57 AM

Unexpected changes in the morning could potentially offset us in a negative way today. We also are prone to feeling erratic or unstable in the morning hours and we may need to slow down and focus on find our center and not getting caught up in things not going the way we had expected. We also could have negative interactions with family or friends during this time. It may not be the best day to be social and we benefit from spending time focusing on our own lives right now rather than getting too caught up in worldly issues or the lives/belief systems of others.

Moon Square Sun in Taurus 3:18 PM

Tension around feeling grounded in ourselves is enhanced and we may feel a lot of mental conflict with how we are relating to our physical world. This is a challenging energy but it is through challenges that we grow. Things are shifting and changing within our physical world, and we do best to see the silver lining in the challenges rather than getting caught up in what is hard about them.

Moon Sextile Venus in Aries 5:58 PM

This is a harmonious energy where we may feel more loving towards ourselves in the evening hours. We benefit from doing some sort of meditation practice around self love and healing our relationship to others. We could also feel a lot of love for the arts and it is beneficial for us to focus on expression of ourselves through artistic practices.

Saturday 4/27

Moon in Aquarius

We may feel incredibly social over the course of the day and we benefit from spending time with friends that get us chatting and stimulated in positive ways. We may have a lot of insights towards our awareness of the world and others at this time and we benefit from sharing ideas and bouncing things off one another. On the flip side we could be overly chatty on the internet and it could cause for us to troll or get caught up in discussions with others that may have us getting into heated discussions.

Strong Aspects During the Day PDT

Mars in Gemini Square Neptune in Pisces 6:04 AM

This is a tension causing transit that we feel for the next few days. It effects our assertion and perception of the world in a negative way. We are ungrounded mentally and our intentions are not clear during this time. It is not positive to start new projects with others without having a clear sense of what you are doing. Anxiety could be heightened over the next few days, stress dreams could be more frequent. I think of the 9 of Swords card for this transit, where we are having a hard time sleeping and our mind feels like it can't be calmed or contained. My advice for this energy would be to exercise the body and do breath work through pranayama yoga meditations to ground and calm the mind. Dream journaling is positive during this time, and getting the perspective of someone else rather than trusting your own intuition may be beneficial, as we are not likely to see things for what they really are during this time. It will be easy to get caught up in worries and what ifs and we may need to rely on someone we trust as an anchor.

Moon Sextile Mercury in Aries 7:35 AM

This is a harmonious energy for asserting who we are, what we need, and what we want during this time. We may feel like we are able to communicate who we are more clearly and we benefit from being honest with others and ourselves about what we can and can't take on during this time.

Moon Trine Mars in Gemini 3:11 PM

Our mental process may be working faster than usual and this also can be ungrounded for us during this time. We may have a lot of random insights that we are not sure why or where they are coming from, but we benefit from being mindful with what insights are presenting themselves at this time. We also will feel a large need for socializing or discussing our ideas and insights with others during this time.

Sunday 4/28

Moon Void of Course 2:44 AM

Moon enters Pisces 3:11 PM

With our Moon Void of Course for the first part of the day, and the Moon moving into Pisces for the rest of the evening, we benefit from taking a time out and focusing on self care. Emotional sensitivity is enhanced and we need to nurture our hearts in healthy ways today.

Strong Aspects During the Day PDT

Moon Sextile Uranus in Taurus 9:02 PM

There is potential for unexpected changes within our homes, jobs, or families during the hours of this transit.

On a personal level we benefit from honoring our hearts and bodies in ways that break us out of any tension causing habits we may have. There is a need for physical and emotional release.
