Wednesday April 17, 2019

Things have changed. PAY ATTENTION! The time for looking to the past for answers has ended with Mercury's arrival in Aries — finally leaving the retrograde shadow. Impatience is punctuated by sharp words. Confidence and clever repartee has suddenly become the new 'coin of the realm'. We should also recognize that our connection to our intuition has changed. We are more likely to access new insights mid-sentence, producing some particularly interesting conversations! There is less flexibility but a strong desire to see quick action demonstrated by a somewhat chatty propensity to say exactly what we're thinking.



Weekly Summary

APRIL 14 - APRIL 20

"Oh light the sky and hold on tight"

This week begins with a highly energizing Grand Fire Trine that is full of passionate intensity but short on focus. The approach of Friday's early morning Full Moon (4:12 AM PDT 29° Libra/Aries) keeps us aware that the stakes are rising. Mercury leaves the shadow of the last retrograde phase and arrives in Aries on Wednesday, establishing a mutual reception with Mars in Gemini that will offer more direct communication. If we are paying attention, we will immediately recognize that things have changed. We leave the period (of the last retrograde Mercury) where we are looking to our past for answers and insights. Sharp tongues are emboldened and intuitive flashes come mid-sentence. Instead of wading through the foggy visions of Pisces, we suddenly begin to open up and recognize we have a voice!. The building imperatives that come along with the Full Moon keep flexibility and adaptability to a minimum but there are still important reasons to keep communication lines open. The more that we can remain detached from the apparent standoff of opposing perspectives, the more effective we will be. Even though there seems to be little flexibility we should remember that 'words have power'. By the end of the week, the Sun leaves Aries for determined Taurus. However, Venus — ruling Taurus — arrives in Aries. The Aries independence is funneled through Taurean determination. The shifts we see this week will continue to play out through the waning lunar cycle and be especially apparent when the Sun conjuncts Uranus next Monday (April 22nd).

Sunday's free-flowing, high energy Grand Fire Trine seems full of excitement and promise. Passions are high. However, focus is questionable at best. Monday's Virgo Moon helps with focus and organization and hopefully helps to channel the available energy. We'll do better by staying on the 'beaten path' on Tuesday. The shift in atmosphere comes on Wednesday with Mercury's entrance into Aries. Impatience is punctuated by sharp words and we're increasingly emboldened to say exactly what's on our minds. There are building imperatives on Thursday but less and less willingness to adapt to changing circumstances. Communication is rather circumspect on Friday. While we may curiously pursue some kind of investigation, we're unlikely to be prepared to share our results. The Sun arrives in Taurus on Saturday just before Venus moves into Aries. The lack of flexibility may produce a standoff of some kind. Detachment and dynamic balance is more productive that direct assaults on opposing positions.

Thursday April 18, 2019

Activity increases here but today's atmosphere brings the recognition that the stakes have increased significantly. There is little inclination to back off. Rather, perseverance is demonstrated by covering an 'iron fist' with a 'velvet glove'. The continuing concern over appearances only brings an obligatory observance of protocol adorned with smooth talk. The building imperatives from tomorrow morning's Libra Full Moon (4:12 AM PDT 29° Libra/Aries) are likely to keep us attentive — on the edge of our seats — and looking for advancement opportunities wherever they can be found. However, we should be prepared for surprising shifts tomorrow, when things are likely to suddenly fall into place in unexpected ways. It is important to maintain a clear-eyed and objective perspective and avoid focusing too much on what is missing.

Friday April 19, 2019

This morning's especially FULL Full Moon (4:12 AM PDT 29° Libra/Aries) signals numerous turning points which we will see play out through the weekend and beyond. We have begun to move away from an extended series of 'cusp' Full Moons (landing at 0° of a sign). Nevertheless, the cusp influence is still at work today. There may be a (wise) inclination to lay low today and maintain a somewhat circumspect attitude. That is not to say that conversation ebbs, only that we are less likely to fully articulate what we're thinking. There is a strong urge to delve deeply into investigative pursuits — on our own own and away from the prying eyes of others. Even so, today's investigations are prone to uncover fascinating information — "More will be revealed".
