Thursday: Saturn retrograde starts at 1:06 am EST. Certain life matters, reflection on aging and the wisdom of experience require processing time now. Educational decisions and plans may be harder than you'd expect and we could experience travel restrictions on a global level. Sagittarius is the sign of philosophy, freedom, global travel and higher education. Patience could be wise and necessary during this period, especially when Mercury is also retrograde starting Sunday. Leo Moon void of course from 8:16 pm to Friday 12:20 am EST. Many aspects of the Moon include themes of longevity, loyalty, promises and commitments. Be true to your word. With Mars trine Pluto, determination comes from deep inside. Be authentic and honorable with your motivation and motives. Today's color is Indigo.
Friday: Virgo Moon 12:20 am EST, trine to Mercury on the brink of retrograde. Temporary problem solving and versatile thinking will help until more permanent plans can be made. The Sun opposes Jupiter, emphasizing self interests vs partnership, individuality vs compromise, and equality and harmony in the processes. Are you overdoing or going too far or pressuring someone? Determine what needs to be done now and what can wait, in terms of both actions and discussions. Taking a step back may be helpful. Today's color is Brown.
Saturday: Virgo Moon with multiple aspects. Be practical as much as possible. Stay close to the earth and grounded in tasks or creations. Venus squares Saturn retrograde. As we move toward Libra Full Moon, love, partnership, and one on one relationships where there's (supposed to be) interdependence and co-ownership come strongly into focus. If there's imbalance and disharmony, situations will peak and feel the stress required to break them down or push to change. The Sun squares Pluto. Conflicting ideas, matters of who's in charge and power plays come up with that square. Be wary of manipulative actions and behavior during this period of time (all week). It might feel like you're just spinning the wheels and going nowhere, in which case it makes more sense to pause and conserve your energy. Black is today's color.
Sunday: Mercury retrograde starts, lasting until May 3rd. Use extra care with schedules, details, and choice of words. Matters of stability and security are likely to create anxiety or stress of another kind. Uncertainty is a challenge, and temporary plans are more advised than permanent decisions. It's not the best time for final word on anything. Libra Moon starts at 8:34 am EST after about 4 hours void of course. The Virgo Moon prior is opposite Venus and square to Saturn (both are retrograde), challenging us in relationship matters. Full Moon warmup is on too. The intensity level is peaking all the way around. Today's color is Lavender.
Monday: Full Moon will be exact on Tuesday EST at 2:08 am (so for Pacific time it's technically on Monday). It's in Libra, sign of justice, balance and partners. Today the Moon meets Jupiter in Libra. This Full Moon has a theme of growth in love and partnership, also whether you can grow together or not. All relationship matters, concerns, or collaborations are spotlighted during this Full Moon. Aim for realism, fair outcomes, and mutual respect as well as maximum potential. What is your relationship concern or message? The first thing that comes to mind is probably the area to contemplate. remember all this retrograde activity makes it a better time to explore and experiment rather than make a long term change. Can you sit with your feelings during this Full Moon? Can you avoid reacting too recklessly or impulsively? In some cases you've done that and it's time. But give yourself a 'minute' in intense situations. There's a good deal of change in the air. take it slow. Today's color is White.
Tuesday: Full Moon in Libra opposes the Sun and Uranus and is sextile to Saturn. Some news will seems to come from out of the blue, and there could be impulsive moves (though that's not recommended.) If you find yourself in a surprising situation or conversation, stop, observe, and use your finest judgement before responding. The Moon is void at 2:19 pm EST, and moves to Scorpio at 8:42 pm EST. Major decisions are not recommended today. Do meet a deadline and try not to stir up emotional matters. Quiet, reflective or relaxed time is a plus. This Full Moon is about relationship, but it's not very romantic. Problem solving together could bring you closer though. Today's color is Blue.
Wednesday: Scorpio Moon, just beyond Full, opposes Mercury retrograde in Taurus. Stubbornness and stuck points seem to dominate. Try not to give all your energy to something unchanging and unmoving now. Determine how energy is most effectively spent, including on rest, personal priorities and creative process as the Moon and Neptune align. You may need to shut the world out for a while. Privacy is valued today. Wear dark red, like Maroon.
