Monday 4/29

Moon in Pisces

With the Moon in Pisces starting out the week, we may feel ungrounded and overly sensitive. This isn’t the best energy for feeling motivated and ready to tackle work. We feel more like we want to cocoon ourselves and sleep the day away and it can be hard to use our minds in a rational way.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Moon Sextile Sun in Taurus 9:34 AM

Nurturing our hearts and our bodies at this time is important and we benefit from fueling ourselves in comforting ways. It will be important that we move slow and not push anything too much. We are likely to feel very dreamy and connected to more fantastical realms of expression. It is important that we find a way to feed our hearts without getting lost in illusions.

Saturn stations retrograde 5:55 PM

Saturn will be retrograde until September 2019 and because it is in conjunction to our South Node in Capricorn, we as a collective will be experiencing a massive upheaval within our physical world and how it’s related to our family and our past. Our ancestral lineage and how it ties into who we are is a large theme here and we may find ourselves unpacking heavy issues we didn't know we had. However we were taught to cope with survival, success, and accomplishment in this life will be challenged during this time and we will be asked to reflect on that relationship to ourselves and the outside world. This work is being asked of us at this time so that we can finally release and let go of any karmic debt that is still binding us to the earth in unhealthy ways. Ask yourself during this retrograde, “what is holding you back from believing in your ability to develop healthy ideas around success in your life.”

Tuesday 4/30

Moon in Pisces

Moon Void of Course 2:57 PM

We continue to feel ungrounded and illusive during the day getting caught up in fantasies of what “could be.” We may be romanticizing an aspect of our lives or what we wish our lives would be like at this time. With the Moon void of course the last half of the day, it is important that we do not make any critical or important decisions at this time as we are not grounded in what is best for us during this time.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Moon Square Mars in Gemini 7:22 AM

We might have difficulty grounding our minds in the morning hours. There is potential for anxiety and deceptive thoughts to come into our consciousness and we benefit from not giving these thoughts any real attention or weight. We run the risk of being overly emotional or erratic in our behavior and we need to be mindful with how we express our feelings at this time.

Moon Sextile Saturn RX in Capricorn 8:34 AM

This transit allows for deep insights around our past and present physical world to come to the forefront of our minds and we may have insights to where we need to take care of more mundane and practical tasks that will put our minds at ease. It's best to try and clean your house, pay your bills, and get in front of any money or potential work that could have you stressed later. Try to avoid procrastinating on work that needs to be done today. Because Saturn is RX we might not have things go the way we had hoped, but it's best to be open to working on chipping away at the goals rather than avoiding them altogether.

Moon Sextile Pluto RX in Capricorn 1:48 PM

This transit allows for us to be more open to changes that are coming around our physical world. We may have deep insights around what parts of our routine or reality we need to let go of that are not positively influencing the direction we are going in. This is a positive time for brainstorming some new systems to put into place around our physical goals and seeing what patterns of behavior may not be in line with what we wish to do moving forward.

Moon Square Jupiter in Sagittarius 2:57 PM

Challenges around escapism and overindulgence characterize this transit and it may be harder for us that we anticipated to stick to a responsible game plan during the hours of this transit. We are likely to seek comfort in not sticking to a routine or our responsibilities and we need to be mindful with the way we indulge our need for freedom as we do not want to fall into old patterns of destructive behavior. With both Pluto and Saturn retrograde in Capricorn, the karmic consequences will be faster than they usually are if we indulge behavior we are being asked to stop at this time.

Mercury in Aries Sextile Mars in Gemini 11:38 PM

This transit allows for us to assert ourselves in a positive way during this time. This can be positive for communication dynamics in business or pushing projects forward during this time. We may enjoy debating with others on our points of view, and we will likely be more impulsive when it comes to jumping in and sharing our opinion or thought process. We are quick to initiate and assert ourselves in the days of this transit.

Wednesday 5/1

Beltane

Moon enters Aries 3:24 AM

The Moon in Aries can cause us to feel emotionally impulsive and short tempered. We may need to find a way to get heat moving through our bodies through a workout, some kundalini yoga or breath work. It is important that we are mindful with how aggressive we try to assert ourselves during this time. For some this could be a positive energy for having the boost to initiate projects or ideas that we had been feeling stuck on in prior days.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Mercury in Aries Square Saturn RX in Capricorn 1:50 AM

Tension over the next couple days around communication and our physical world is enhanced. This could be a challenging few days around work where projects don't really seem to go according to plan and we might be misunderstanding or misunderstood quite a bit. There is a potential for us to feel angry and resentful towards our work during this time and it is important that we find a healthy way of expelling this anger. Move slow, don't overreact, as it is likely to not go over so well.

Thursday 5/2

Moon in Aries

With so many tension and challenge inducing transits this week, we may feel like the tension within is beginning to boil over. We need a healthy way to express our emotions by not suppressing everything and bottling it in, with the Moon in Aries it is likely to come out one way or another. We benefit from going for a hike to get grounded, going to the gym, or doing hot yoga to work heat through the body. Also writing or journaling your feelings at this time is beneficial.

Strong Aspects During the Day PDT

Moon Conjunct Venus in Aries 7:39 AM

We may feel a deep need to connect to ourselves in a very personal way. Self love is extremely important today and practicing gratitude for who we are in the moment rather than picking ourselves apart is important. It is likely we could be a little overly self focused today and we need to be mindful with not projecting our personal needs onto others in a selfish or aloof way. Take yourself on a date and focus on giving yourself the love you deserve rather than seeing it out of another.

Mercury in Aries Square Pluto RX in Capricorn 2:49 PM

This transit causes a lot of self doubt and mistrust around others and our own mental process. We could be in a power struggle with ourselves or something in our lives that feels oppressive. Our need to assert could blow up in some way and we may have to reevaluate our relationship to how we have been doing things in our lives. This is not a good time for signing any long term agreements or contracts. More time needs to be given to any problems at hand and we benefit from waiting rather than being impulsive towards any large decision making during this time.

Moon Square Saturn RX in Capricorn 7:16 PM

Potential for depression and feeling overly sluggish is enhanced during this time. We may not feel very successful within our lives and there is a lot of potential for insecurities around what we are doing with ourselves in the physical. We may be overly critical over how much money we make or do not make during this time or our status at work. Issues from our past and our family dynamics around how we were raised to perceive the world are enhanced.

Mercury in Aries Trine Jupiter in Sagittarius 8:59 PM

This energy enhances our need for education and new experiences that stimulate growth. We could find ourselves seeking new opportunities to learn abroad, or teach something to someone else.We benefit from feeding our minds with new information during this transit and it is a positive time for taking a class in something that we are interested in over the next few days.

Moon Sextile Mars in Gemini 9:22 PM

This is a harmonious transit for our assertion of feelings and ideas that have been culminating. We may be ready to look forward to things in our lives that we need to prioritize in new ways.
