retrograde juno in libra opposes mean black moon lilith in aries at 5:01pm, creating tension between the asteroid Goddess of partnership and marriage in the sign of relationship and the Dark Goddess in the sign of the warrior. the aries/libra axis is one that illuminates the duality of me and we, self and other, assertiveness and surrender, fighting and peace. this can bring up some intense shadowy energies in relationship but it can also reveal what we have swept underneath the surface. since november 2019 juno has been in the midst of intense aspects and she will be until september 2020. relationships are being rocked and what is not on the surface is coming up to be addressed. look to the libra part of your chart to see where this is unfolding (and listen to the weekly/monthly horoscopes).
at 11:59pm the sun in taurus squares saturn in aquarius, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. the sun in taurus wants sensuality, embodiment, pleasure and enjoyment. saturn is restrictive in nature and demands we get real and not overspend, overeat, overdo, be lazy or flabby. this is a time to reign it in and align with our Great values not just our creature comforts and resistance to change. if you feel blah, depressed, low energy today- know that this, too shall, pass. and BE with what arises.
tuesday april 21st-
the sun in taurus sextiles the mean north node in cancer at 4:31pm, aligning the conscious self and ego with the node of destiny and evolution (the sun also trines the karmic south node). with the sun linking with both nodes we have amazing opportunities for insight and illumination around what blocks us and keeps us stuck in the past and what we need to do in order to grow, evolve and move forward. pay attention to insights, aha moments, connections made today!
wednesday april 22nd-
mercury in aries semisextiles neptune in pisces at 10:11am, linking the mind and intellect with the Higher Heart. mercury/neptune is great for intuition, dreams, inspiration and artistic expression. mercury is the first sign and neptune is in the last sign- linking alpha and omega, beginning and end, outer and inner. this is a great aspect to take our visions, dreams and intuitions and act on them with the fire, agency and directed will.
the new moon at 3’24 taurus is exact at 7:26pm PDT, commencing a new lunar cycle that is focused on embodiment, earth, the environment, physical life, vitality and well being. this new moon is conjunct uranus- which is bringing in change to our value structures, financial reality, physical reality and more. if you did not see the blog i wrote about the 7 year transit of uranus in taurus – entitled ‘the embodiment revolution’- you can read that here https://divineharmony.com/astrology-blog/uranus-in-taurus-the-embodiment-revolution/.
this new moon is square saturn bringing reality checks and get real moments in time. we need to see WHAT IS and DEAL WITH WHAT IS ARISING. we cannot stay stuck in old ways of being and doing- focused on luxury, hoarding, me-mine mentality. we need to wake up to what really matters right now. this new moon is sextile the north node in cancer- reminding us of our evolutionary path forward and what it is asking of us. we need to listen! for more information on this new moon check the lunar insight posted a few days before the new moon as well as the lunar gate call and lunar horoscopes posted for members. if you are not a member you can sign up to be one here- https://divineharmony.com/become-a-member/
thursday april 23rd-
at 1:17pm ceres moves out of aquarius and into pisces, shifting the Great Mother asteroid Goddess from air to water, intellect to emotion, mind to heart. ceres in pisces is the ultimate Unconditionally Loving Mother. she sacrifices herself for others and her altruism, genuine care, depth of love and empathy are second to none. this is a time to think of the collective and to go beyond personal needs so that we are attuned to greater need. just watch out for the shadow of ceres in pisces- playing the victim, martyr or savior, giving until you have nothing more to give and confusing enabling and codependence with Unconditional Love. Unconditional Love requires love for self which expresses with clear and healthy boundaries <3
friday april 24th-
at 6:07am mars in aquarius sesquiquadrates the north node in cancer, creating tension between the will and drive and the node of destiny and evolution. mars in aquarius is detached, comes from the mind and takes action devoid of feeling or emotion. the north node in cancer is all about emotion and feeling and honoring the feminine. an honest self check in about where we find ourselves coming from head as a means to avoid the heart is key right now.
the sun in taurus semisquares neptune in pisces at 11:54am, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the planet that dissolves ego boundaries. sun/neptune can be dreamy, magical, idealistic, spiritual and compassionate. but neptune can also wear down the boundaries of self and make one too wide open or too out to lunch to see or deal with reality. finding balance between body (sun in embodied taurus) and spirit/soul (neptune in pisces) so that one foot is in both worlds is key.
at 12:22pm mercury cojoins eris at 23’59 aries, aligning the mind and intellect and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos in powerful ways! eris reveals the shadow- she shines a Light on that which others do not want to see or look at. communication or information incoming can be revealing but also disarming and destabilizing. being willing to see beyond the surface and get to the Truth is a must- personally and collectively. mercury is triggering the pluto/eris square today through tomorrow and with pluto stationary and about to go retrograde there are some pretty big (intense) energies afoot. navigate wisely!
saturday april 25th-
at 12:36am mercury in aries squares a STATIONARY pluto in capricorn, creating tension and friction between the conscious self and ego and the planet of transformation, death and rebirth and power. mercury square pluto is an aspect of a depth psychologist, researcher or investigator- someone who is willing to dig deep and go way beyond the surface to get to the Truth. communications and thoughts can be intense and probing today- but they can also get to the root of things if we stay with the process. just watch out for the shadow side of mercury/pluto- being jaded, cynical, paranoid and only seeing the shadow without the capacity to also see the Light. also steer clear of power/control dynamics in communication with others.
pluto stations retrograde at 24’59 capricorn at 11:54am, bringing the Lord of the Underworld to a standstill in the sky. there’s a call right now to relate to our will, power, drive and ego energies from a different place. pluto stationary can confront us with areas of life that feel out of control- and if we clamp down and try to control them even more it can get even more intense. using this energy to dive down and into our psyches and confront shadow dynamics around power and control (do we give away, do we lord it over others) is the best use of the excavation energy right now. steer clear of power/control dynamics with others and instead focus on being empowered and having control over your lower self! we currently have mercury triggering the pluto/eris square and with pluto at a standstill there can be a lot coming up and out in information, communication, media and interactions with others. there is much intensity present but also deep opportunities for transformation and evolution. surrender your ego self to your Higher Self for best results!
venus in gemini sesquiquadrates saturn in aquarius at 8:53pm, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. venus/saturn is about getting real and seeing/dealing with reality. Love and money situations require detached thought and observation right now. are we sticking with things long beyond their expiration date? are we bound in mind but disconnected in heart and emotion? seeing self and other clearly is key.
at 8:31pm mercury in aries squares jupiter in capricorn, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the planet of expansion and excess. mercury triggered the pluto/eris square yesterday to today and today he triggers the jupiter/pluto conjunction. speak up, speak Truth, take a stand! but also be willing to listen and see with depth perception. not all is as it seems. there’s much going on beneath the surface and you need owl eyes to see it (meaning you must be at home in the dark).
sunday april 26th-
at 2:01am the sun cojoins uranus at 6’35 taurus, aligning the conscious self and ego with the rebel, revolutionary and Great Awakener. uranus in taurus is a 7 year transit helping to wake us up to new values, to change our understanding of abundance and money and to wake up to deeper and more expansive self worth and self Love. sun/uranus can make for an exciting day- depending on how attached we are to control and having things all figured out. stay open to change and doing something new today! just watch out for being restless, impulsive and reactive. don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater!
the sun in taurus semisextiles chiron in aries at 5:01pm, linking the conscious self and ego with the Wounded Healer planetoid. sun/chiron is great for bringing more awareness to our sense of selves, egos, wounds and pain. with the sun in earthy taurus the wounds illuminated could be physical, sexual or around money and material reality. chiron shines the Light of awareness and the sun can receive that and use it as information for healing today.
