APRIL 27 —- A rare day when competing cosmic forces create a very positive direction. The slow, steady drumbeat of realistic activity with the opportunity for creativity as the Moon in Taurus sextiles Venus in Pisces provides a balance for a high energy, fast paced mental focus where ideas are moving at warp speed as Mercury conjuncts Uranus in Aries. Caution in the face of volatility comes naturally today so take advantage of it to do some impressive work. Another good garden day.
APRIL 26 —- The Taurus New Moon at 8:16am launches a month of focusing on real life activities. This is traditional planting time and a good day to work in the garden. Mercury remaining retrograde in Aries until May 3 delays starting big projects like buying or selling real estate but you can begin to set up the process to be ready to act once Mercury moves direct. Work done today is solid and has the opportunity to be highly creative especially any artistic activity as the Moon sextiles Neptune in Pisces. You won’t be moving fast but you will show tremendous endurance. Don’t let persistence devolve into blind stubbornness. It is not a weakness to change your mind in the face of solid new evidence.
APRIL 25 —- High energy all day. Unfortunately, the brakes don’t work in lots of situations and unexpected events are everywhere until early afternoon as the Moon in Aries conjuncts Uranus. Then harsh and thoughtless words — even if they are true — spill out as the Moon conjuncts Mercury. The best thing that happens at the end of the day is a great leap forward on many fronts as the Moon trines Saturn in Sagittarius. Then it’s void of course from 5:53pm through 9:56pm and the world will seem overcaffinated — all energy and no direction. Be cautious. Try to exercise a moment of thought before steaming ahead. A solid and grounded New Moon in Taurus appears at 8:16am tomorrow promising stability.
APRIL 24 —- Fast paced, action packed day with a penchant for mowing people down as you race forward as the Moon in Aries opposes Jupiter in Libra. Try to be nice.
APRIL 23 —- A good day for unleashing creative force as well as love and compassion. There is a strong purpose and mental focus on detail to the day as Mercury in Aries trines Saturn in Sagittarius and the Moon in Pisces squares Saturn in Sagittarius in spite of its overall squishy nature and that helps bring practical accomplishment. Work in your garden. Late afternoon is a love fest as the Moon conjuncts Venus in Pisces followed by a couple hours of void of course feelings from 5:34 to 8:32pm. By tonight, driving action takes over as the Moon enters Aries and there is the opportunity for quick, pragmatic conversations with high impact as the Moon sextiles Mars in Gemini.
APRIL 22 —- No sharp edges today. Everything is vague, fuzzy and blending into everything and everyone else as the Moon conjuncts Neptune in Pisces. By this evening, there is an opportunity to turn the creativity of the energy into something real but keep your expectations low as the Moon sextiles Pluto in Capricorn. Drift.
APRIL 21 —- Your head will be buzzing with brilliant and occasionally bizarre ideas and notions today up until mid afternoon as the Moon in Aquarius sextiles Saturn in Sagittarius and Mercury in Aries. There’s lots happening. Too much in fact. The biggest problem is being scattered, jumping from idea to idea as Mars enters Gemini for the next six weeks. There’s a brief void of course period from 2:23-3:43pm and then emotion is introduced and that mental activity gets challenged as the Moon in Pisces squares Mars. Appreciate it as a way of introducing creativity and compassion into the mix as the Moon sextiles the Sun in Taurus. Have a designated driver tonight.
APRIL 20 —- Lots of shifting cosmic energy over the next couple days so try to keep your balance. Today the intense transformative energy of Pluto stationing and retrograding in Capricorn begins to ease off and your brain starts moving more quickly. Mercury is still retrograde but it’s just not so slow to function as it moves back into Aries. Focus mental energy on these shifts and figure out what to do with them. Work with your friends on this through mid afternoon as the Moon in Aquarius trines Jupiter in Libra and then retreat to work alone as Venus in Pisces squares Saturn in Sagittarius. Inspiration hits late afternoon through the night as the Moon sextiles Uranus in Aries and by dawn tomorrow there is a driving force to tell the world what’s happening as Mars enters Gemini.
APRIL 19 —- Wait for dawn to start your day as the Moon is void of course until 6:2am when it enters Aquarius. Focus on mental activity and your electronics even if they seem to be mired in sticky stuff that slows them down as the Moon squares Mercury in Taurus. Earthbound and traditional is the force as the day proceeds peaking tonight when the Sun leaves fast and furious Aries to enter slow and steady Taurus for the next month and then quickly conjuncts Mercury. Frustration is high especially since the impact of all that happens is formidable and potentially life changing with Pluto stationing and movng retrograde in Capricorn just after dawn tomorrow. Putting a stop to forward movement may turn out to be good thing keeping us from plunging over the edge.
APRIL 18 —- Grind out the work early this morning as the Moon conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn. The rest of the day is also serious and work-oriented but with a constant challenge of upheaval and rebellion as the Moon squares Uranus in Aries. It keeps the effort creative. Late night and after midnight are active times if you can keep up your efforts. There are opportunities for personal touches in the overall corporate world as the Moon sextiles Venus in Pisces, trines Mars in Taurus and squares the Sun in Aries. Tension continues to build in the effort to transform traditional patterns as Pluto stands still in Capricorn then retrogrades. Let old stuff go in your life, resistance is futile.
APRIL 17 —- Organize, plan and arrange your affairs accordingly. It’s a day of hard work with discipline.

Tensions are building to possible dramatic and thorough change both in personal lives and on a global scale later in the week when Pluto stations then turns retrograde on Thursday.
APRIL 16 —- A lively, fun-filled day that favors love, friendship and creativity as Venus in Pisces sextiles Mars in Taurus . It starts with fun surprises … find all those eggs — and continues with a drive to adventure and aspiration or higher thoughts as the Moon in Sagittarius trines Uranus in Aries squares Venus and conjuncts Saturn. Let the tradition of Easter take over. The action is steady and purposeful until 2:26pm when the Moon goes void of course and energy drops its intensity although it remains adventuresome. Take a hike or a nap — both work fine. At 7:05pm, the Moon enters Capricorn and you start sorting through the times to come and make plans. Write them down as the Moon trines Mercury in Taurus. You are disciplined and ready to work hard as the Sun in Aries trines Saturn tomorrow morning.
APRIL 15 —- The morning starts a little spacy as the Moon in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces, lost in the ocean of love as Venus is stationing then moving direct in Pisces.

The night is filled with pleasant surprises as the Moon trines Uranus in Aries just after dawn tomorrow.
APRIL 14 —- The stars seem consonant with the Christian calendar today and Good Friday. There are no aspects through the day and evening but an ocean of compassion and universal love as Venus stations then moves forward in Pisces at dawn tomorrow. With the Moon in Sagittarius there is also appreciation for ritual and a turning toward the future. It can be a day of adventure, good luck and excellent companions.
APRIL 13 —- The element of liveliness dominates the day as the Sun conjuncts Uranus in Aries just after midnight tomorrow.

APRIL 12 —- Deep and powerful emotions dominate the day although much may be kept hidden inside as the Moon in Scorpio trines Neptune in Pisces. Creative force is also high.

APRIL 11 —- Productive meetings that come from a group working harmoniously together are the hallmark of the day as the Moon in Libra sextiles Saturn in Sagittarius. Get the heavy lifting done before the Moon goes void of course at 2:19pm then just slide on good feelings. The flow of the day returns at 6:42pm when the Moon enters Scorpio but it’s deeper, more covert and makes for a sexy night. Or you could just enjoy a good mystery and dark secrets as the Moon opposes Mercury in Taurus. The Aries Full Moon marks Passover and it is exact at 2:08am today with a little boost of unexpected insights or events just afterwards as the Moon opposes Uranus in Aries.
APRIL 10 —- A smooth, balanced and easy day. Spend it with groups and individuals who bring harmony into your life as the Moon in Libra conjuncts Jupiter. Talk about beauty. Enjoy spring flowers. By tonight, the road gets challenging with stress from the outside world as the Moon squares Pluto in Capricorn and the disruption and tension of the Full Moon which is exact at 2:08am on Tuesday as the Moon opposes the Sun and Uranus in Aries.
APRIL 9 —- A world class slow day. The Virgo Moon is void of course until 8:34am so no leaping out of bed all energized. And even once the flow begins as the Moon moves into Libra it’s simply a general good feeling — not that there’s anything wrong with that. And then at 7:15pm Mercury stands still exactly in Taurus and begins to move backwards. All day you will feel nothing is going anywhere except getting confused, lost, misunderstood and all those other happy Mercury retrograde actions. Stay calm. It begins moving forward again on 5/3. These first couple of weeks while Mercury is retrogarding back through Taurus are particularly hard on real estate — no deals, deals fall through, etc. As if that’s not enough for today, we’re less than 48 hours from the powerful Aries Full Moon so there’s plenty of force pushing against the obstacles. Save your boulder pushing for another time. Go for peace and harmony even if it’s all about standing still.
APRIL 8 —- Another day of working at tasks and duties, mostly small but still cleaning up your list. Get lots done before late afternoon as the Moon in Virgo trines Pluto in Capricorn and Mars in Taurus. Because of several factors that make you highly critical it’s probably best to work alone. Ponder your relationships but give it a day or two before taking action. You can expect to remove people and parts of your life that are not working. A good day for introspection and reflection as long as you keep your critical side in check and don’t go too far as Venus in Pisces squares Saturn in Sagittarius. Watch out for challenges from persons in authority especially tonight as the Sun in Aries squares Pluto. And expect breakdowns in machinery. Mercury goes retrograde in Taurus tomorrow, be prepared.
APRIL 7 —- Keep your head down, work hard on all your duties and their details and no overreach or you will meet tremendous resistance as the Moon is in Virgo. With this modest attitude the day can be positive, optimistic and successful as the Sun in Aries opposes Jupiter in Libra. Be courageous but not arrogant. Things are coming to a head and now is the time to tie off loose ends and finish them. The next two days promise to be particularly challenging: Saturn remains stationary and Mercury turns retrograde on Sunday.
APRIL 6 —- In spite of the general feeling of confidence and strength, the fact that the planet Saturn stations and retrogrades today puts the brakes on any forward movement on plans and actions. There is a heaviness and depression that comes from this force. Have patience. Unexpected occurrences make break through this morning. Keep being directed towards your plans. It’s void of course this evening so settle in with a book or movie and ignore the frustrations. Don’t forget to back up your data before Mercury retrogrades on April 9.
APRIL 5 —- A day of great strength, confidence and power as the Moon in Leo trines the Sun in Aries. You can be highly effective in changing both yourself and the world but success requires that you keep in mind the needs of the greater society. This cannot be purely selfish action. Your energy today allows a sustained effort in the future as Mars in Taurus trines Pluto in Capricorn. However, the planetary forces of the next several days introduce obstacles and barriers to forward motion causing great frustration as both Saturn and Mercury station then retrograde. Plant the seed today, infuse it with forward looking energy and have patience. The change will manifest by summer.
APRIL 4 — These next few days are potent for evaluating positions and considering changes to be more effective. Forward movement is stopped in several areas as both Saturn in Sagittarius and Mercury in Taurus slow to retrograde so use the time to reflect. You can formulate long range plans but they will not start unfolding for the next month or so. Today is about checking your feelings, looking into your past, especially family influences. Your discoveries are mostly positive and pleasant so don’t hold back as the Moon in Cancer trines Venus in Pisces. There’s a brief period of no-flow void of course energy from 4:45 to 6:15pm and then it’s drive forward full of confidence about changing the world as the Moon moves into Leo. Don’t be discouraged that the change is mostly theoretical right now — it will happen later. And on other matters — a good day to plant in the garden and to cook.
APRIL 3 —- An emotion-laden day where everything gets taken personally — for good or for not. The morning is easy and you feel comfortable as the Moon in Cancer trines Neptune in Pisces, things get sketchy on and off for the rest of the day. The best opportunity for accomplishment is from mid-afternoon through late evening asthe Moon sextiles Mars in Taurus. Before and after that hard reality smacks up against sensitive feelings as the Moon squares the Sun in Aries. Nighttime is particularly hard as the Moon squares Jupiter in Libra and opposes Pluto in Capricorn.. Now for a look ahead. The second Mercury retrograde period is coming up later this week. Start doing your data back-ups, close deals and contracts and generally prepare yourself to be completed by Friday. Things don’t start moving ahead again until May 5.
APRIL 2 —- Two different feels to the day with a blank space in the middle. Be all chatty and making plans as the Gemini Moon opposes Saturn in Sagittarius until 10:43am when the Moon goes void of course then just talk and move around mindlessly until 2:27pm when the Moon enters Cancer. This afternoon, and building more intensely this evening, it’s all about emotion and less about conversation as the Moon squares Venus in Aries and sextiles Mercury in Taurus. Focus on family. By evening we enter a monthlong period where compassion replaces the warrior queen attitude of the past month as Venus retrogrades back into Pisces.

MARCH 31 —- The long void of course Moon began at 7:12pm yesterday and doesn’t conclude until 12:40pm today. Don’t expect much of this morning as the Moon continues void in Taurus. Finish tasks from yesterday or do heavy lifting on various other activities already underway. The rest of the day provides the opportunity for fun, connections with friends and one last burst of creative communications just after lunch as the Moon enters Gemini and sextiles Venus and the Sun in Aries. Mental energy then shifts this afternoon from the high speed Mercury in Aries of the past three weeks to the next three weeks of slow, steady and conservative Mercury in Taurus. No new ideas. March will indeed go out like a lamb — or more accurately, a sheep.
MARCH 30 —- A solid, traditional day with plenty of endurance and not a little stubbornness as the Moon is in Taurus. Much can be accomplished as the Moon sextiles Neptune in Pisces, conjuncts Mars and trines Pluto in Capricorn. In fact, the most challenging force overshadowing the day is excess ambition, trying to do too many great things. Success is possible but avoid any questionable dealings and people as Jupiter in Libra squares Pluto. This is an ideal day for garden work or renovation projects.

MARCH 29 —- After a restless night, the Aries Moon goes void of course at 8:05am until it enters Taurus at 11:48am so start anything you need to do early then take a break.

Spend time with yourself while the Moon is void of course from 6:19am until 10:11am pondering your life and its direction then make any adjustments based on the insights you achieve as the Moon conjuncts Venus and Mars in Taurus sextiles Neptune in Pisces. Just make it all happen quickly — there is nothing slow about today.
