Monday: Virgo Moon, Venus trine Saturn
Mars is now retrograde. Grand openings and elective surgeries are two things to schedule outside this time period, through June 29th. Things don't tend to have the desired results, the aura of success and excitement, and the precision when Mars appears to retrace his path. Any kind of launch is better timed with Mars direct. Mars is in Sagittarius, so I think world travel may be restricted or full of challenge too, through June. Mercury retrograde begins on April 28th and adds to the delays and other effects. Pluto retrograde starts today, but has a less intense personal impact.
May is a month to schedule around rather than in.
Virgo Moon aligns with Pluto in Capricorn and Mercury in Taurus. At 8:29 am the Moon is void of course until 7:24 am EDT Tuesday. A relaxed and simple day is called for. Take care of usual tasks and follow routines. Venus in Aries aligns with Saturn in Sagittarius. This is like a young woman befriending a grandfatherly man, where youth meets wisdom or a free spirit appreciates an ancient text and the laws of nature. These are symbolic examples of how very different forces can come together for best case outcomes today. Venus is quite active in Aries this week and status changes will become noticeable. Do you want more freedom or a bit more structure in your relationship? Both are possible and easier to come by today. Have a relationship conversation or interaction even with void of course Moon, which also can relax the circumstances. It's a good day to find forgiveness, but maybe with terms of agreement to live by. Today's color is pink.
Tuesday: Sun in Taurus, Libra Moon
The middle of spring comes as Sun moves to Taurus at 11:29 am. The Moon is in Libra as of 7:24 am. Both signs are ruled by Venus, planet of love, harmony, and beauty. Venus squares Pluto for confronting fears around love and relationship. Trust issues come up. Pluto is in heavy, earthy Capricorn, emotionally reserved, and Venus in enthusiastic, bold Aries. These traits may be in conflict, looking for middle ground, either between two of you or within yourself. Squares create the kind of tension that leads to progress or breakthrough. Work through a relationship perception or reality today. New love may suffer from some fear of going forward. Libra Moon has no special aspects and encourages compromise, sense of beauty, and friendly meetings. Today's color is blue.
Wednesday: Libra Moon
Libra Moon opposes Venus, squares Pluto, and is in harmony with Saturn and Mars in Sagittarius. You may find yourself thinking and re-thinking situations today. The tendency to over-analyze can get in the way of any action. If the pros and cons are clear, buy or do before Mercury retrograde. Air sign Libra is intellect. Negotiate skillfully with logical reasoning. Make time to dance and hear music. Full Moon warmup is ever present, so conclusions, finalities, and the last word could come now. Today's color is lavender.
Thursday: Libra Moon opposite Uranus
Wild ideas happen overnight into morning as the opposition of Moon and Uranus occurs at 2:13 am EDT. Sometimes a spontaneous burst of energy or thought is worth following up, yet other times it turns out to be too impulsive and not a good plan at all. Give yourself a bit of think time before acting overnight and through the day. Uranus in Aries is both ingenious and volatile. Air feeds fire, so watch out where flames or electricity are involved. The Moon is (near) Full today, so many things will be exaggerated, amplified and at peak point. With a void of course Moon from 2:13 am to 8:17 pm EDT, take no unnecessary chances. Scorpio Moon moves in tonight at 8:17 and is full at 1:24 am EDT. Today's color is white.
Friday: Full Moon in Scorpio
The Full Moon of all that's secret, hidden, mysterious and potent, Scorpio Full Moon brings out issues that are tough to tackle, sometimes difficult to express or discuss, and emotionally based.
What we became aware of and immersed in during last month's lunar eclipse may reach another level of completion too. Also, on this day, Venus and Uranus meet in Aries. Flashes of inspiration lead to brand new things, including relationships. This could prompt love at first sight. Quick developments and changes in partnerships are likely. This mini Full Moon looks small from earth, but don't let that mislead you. It will draw out innermost feelings, concerns, and potentially self expression. The Moon is Full at 1:24 am EDT. Today's color is indigo.
Saturday: Scorpio Moon
Scorpio Moon opposes Mercury in Taurus and aligns with Pluto. A continuation of Full Moon realizations, unraveling of mysteries, and strong statements ensues. Things we'd rather not face or make public come up at times like this. Protect your privacy. Keep promises, and commit fully or not at all. Void of course Moon starts at 5:46 pm. Today's color is maroon.
Sunday: Sagittarius Moon
At 8:46 am EDT, the Moon moves to Sagittarius, sign of free thinking and philosophy. The next significant aspect of the Moon is a meeting with Mars retrograde on Monday morning. Enjoy travels and good books while the Moon stimulates ideas, knowledge and different perspectives. Clear your schedule of unnecessary appointments. Philosophical conversations are likely, but watch out for spontaneous arguments as the Moon approaches Mars. Old problems are best handled another time.
Today's color is purple.
