Cosmic Weather:

“The time we lose is not in overdoing what we are about, but in doing nothing.” William Hazlitt

With fun-loving Venus in boundaryless Pisces forming a square to over-sizing Jupiter in enthusiastic Sagittarius today, it’s easy to get swept away in the current of whatever it is that we’re pursuing for pleasure or enjoyment now (relationships/love/money/dreams/beliefs). Not that that’s necessarily a bad thing, by any means…

Of course, on the other hand, as many of us know, too much of a good thing can quickly morph into something that is ‘not-so-good’ for us, depending on what we’re doing or what’s at stake. In other words, it’s always wise to put things into their proper context.

Anyway, discerning when and where to draw that merry little line or distinction with respect to the parameters of our behavior, is, seemingly, part of our captivating cosmic assignment for this Monday, April 15th. Tax Day in the U.S.

Famous April 15 Birthdays: Leonardo da Vinci, Nikita Khrushchev, Elizabeth Montgomery, Emma Thompson

“Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work your judgment will be surer. Go some distance away because then the work appears smaller and more of it can be taken in at a glance and a lack of harmony and proportion is more readily seen.” Leonardo da Vinci

On This Day in History: On April 15, 1912, the Titanic sank off the Newfoundland coast as the band played on. More than 1,500 people lost their lives in the world’s most tragic and infamous maritime tragedy.

Astrologically, in the sky that day, Neptune, the ruler of the sea, was in the water sign of Cancer and exactly square to the Lunar Nodes (NN in Aries, SN in Libra).

“In April, God speaks to us in the seas whose rhythmic murmuring fills our ears from a long way off. It was in April that the Titanic went down into the deep to lie like a slasher’s victim, bleeding the ‘debris field’ – its’ passengers personal possessions, the everyday things of every man and every woman – across the ocean’s floor.” Eugene Kennedy

Cosmic Weather:

“We live in a culture of secrecy, where hiding and lying are accepted as natural, even though we don’t like it. We want honesty, transparency, and authenticity in our loved ones, our groups and organizations, and in our own self so we can reach the heights of our capacity. By clinging to the opaque reality we stall our evolution.” Penney Peirce

We are poised for positive, transformative new beginnings today but the portal to get there requires that we first must do some serious digging/heavy lifting through the valley of our fears, worries, insecurities to see how they have been covertly or secretly impacting/blocking/shaping our utilization of power in the world (Sun square Pluto). Pluto is associated with purging or eliminating whatever is decaying or putrefying inside of us so that we can lighten our load, and move on.

Additionally, on the shadow side, with the Sun in conquest-oriented Aries, there can be a tendency now for power struggles to ensue, or more of a willingness to engage in manipulative behaviors, in a bid to hold onto what is feared may be passing away (Pluto).

“You can change your world by changing your words…Remember, death and life are in the power of the tongue.” Joel Osteen

On This Day in History: On April 13, 1870, the Metropolitan Museum of Art forms in New York City.

Today’s Astrology April 5, 2019: New Moon in Aries

Cosmic Weather:

“It is not the failure that holds us back but the reluctance to begin over again that causes us to stagnate.” Clarissa Pinkola Estes

We have a New Moon in ‘initiating’ Aries today (4:50 am). It’s also the first New Moon of the astrological new year, which occurred when the Sun entered the sign of Aries at the Spring (Northern) equinox.

The New Moon in Aries is always a time for us to embark on personal new beginnings. The keywords for Aries are: I am. So we’re recognizing or affirming our very existence now by putting things into motion. By taking action. By creating. We’ll also want to pay attention to the house in our natal chart in which this New Moon is occurring as that is the area of our life in which these new activities will be getting underway.

This is also an excellent time for us to incorporate some of the qualities of Aries, such as independence, adventurousness, and fearlessness. Also, for learning how to take the initiative in matters as well as for developing a strong belief in ourselves.

Aspect-wise, today’s New Moon is square to Saturn, Pluto, and the South Node in Capricorn. Suggesting that it’s very important now to be very focused and grounded (Saturn) in our actions; assertive, but not pushy (Pluto); and responsive, instead of reactive (South Node).

“When it’s obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.” Confucius

On This Day in History: On April 5, 1923 Firestone Tire and Rubber Company starts producing inflatable tires.

Astrologically, that day, there was a grand fire trine involving the Sun, Mercury, and Chiron in pioneering Aries; visionary Neptune in leadership Leo; and the Moon in futuristic Sagittarius. Jupiter was also retrograde in resourceful, transformative Scorpio and trining Uranus, the planet of invention and technology, in imaginative Pisces.

Famous April 5 Birthdays: Booker T. Washington, Spencer Tracy, Bette Davis, Gregory Peck, Colin Powell, Pharrel Williams

“Success is not to be measured so much by the status one has attained in life but rather by the obstacles one has overcome while trying to succeed.” Booker T. Washington.

Booker T. Washington, an American educator who was born into slavery (b. 4/5/1856), was also born right after a New Moon in Aries, just like we have today. He had his Sun and Moon conjunct in pioneering Aries, along with four planets conjunct in compassionate Pisces – Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, and Neptune. (Today we also have Mercury, Venus, and Neptune conjunct in Pisces!)  His Pisces planets were also all square to teacher, obstacle-ruler Saturn in thinker, information imparter Gemini.

Happy New Moon Blessings!

Today’s Astrology April 4, 2019: Pluto Conjunct South Node in Capricorn

Tags

, , , , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

Transformational Pluto conjunct the South Node in ambitious Capricorn today is potentially a chance for us to gain deeper insight (Pluto) into how we have perhaps been (South Node) wielding or managing our power, control, or authority in the world (Pluto) in order to attain outward success (Capricorn).

The South Node represents our habits or ingrained behaviors, while Pluto symbolizes, among other things, penetrating awareness, the urge for power itself, and also governs the principle of death and rebirth.

This conjunction, ideally, gives us a chance to let go of, or purge, ways of being that are no longer reflective of who we are, or no longer appropriate for us, so that we can move forward. Moving forward, too, in this case, also suggests moving toward the more feelings-oriented North Node in Cancer, as the North Node signifies our future growth, or where we are heading. In other words, we are allowing ourselves, with this aspect, the freedom now to express more of what is in our heart (Cancer), while, at the same time, retreating from a position of feeling that we must always be in charge or control of everything and everyone (Capricorn). Capricorn can also expose our previous cultural conditioning that orients us to do, perhaps, what is socially acceptable rather than what is totally honest for us.

Since Pluto also symbolizes what is below the surface, or at our core, including the realm of the unconscious, it’s possible that we may also experience now elements, situations, or relationships that unite us with our buried or more distant past. Again, too, the purpose of this re-emergence of the past is not to haunt us or to lay a guilt trip on us, but rather, to free us from whatever has been trapped inside.

“Be not the slave of your own past – plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep, and swim far, so you shall come back with new self-respect, with new power, and with an advanced experience that shall explain and overlook the old.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

On a non-personal level, Pluto conjunct the South Node can also shed light on tangible things or structures that are broken down around us that need to be either fixed, repaired, or replaced. This could include, for instance, discovering hidden foundational issues in a house or building. Or maybe finding out about hard-to-detect plumbing or sewage leaks. Isn’t it interesting, too, how the outer structures of our lives will often symbolically mirror or reflect what is going on with us on an internal level?

On This Day in History: On April 4, 1968, US Civil Rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. is assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

Cosmic Weather:

“Within ourselves, there are voices that provide us with all the answers that we need to heal our deepest wounds, to transcend our limitations, to overcome our obstacles or challenges, and see where our soul is longing to go.” Debby Ford

The nature of our thoughts or thinking can impact our ability for self-healing in a positive, liberating way today as Mars in cerebral Gemini forms a waxing sextile to Chiron in self-focused Aries (11:39 pm).

This opportunity aspect can motivate us, or inspire us, to look at old issues or vulnerabilities with fresh eyes, new strategies, new spins. Included here, in the process, might be the active gathering/sharing of information, opinions, and viewpoints; a non-tangible arsenal that serves to fortify us, stimulate us, and get us ready and eager for the next step of our journey. Mars in Gemini often finds it much easier to change or alter its course as new information is made available.

Changing, modifying, or tweaking the physical world around us, including visiting new sites or locations, can also be quite cathartic now. Kind of like when we’ve been holed up in the house, for a couple days, maybe during a snowstorm or something, and then when we’re finally able to get out, we feel like a brand new person, with a much better attitude.

Today’s Astrology April 2, 2019: Mercury Conjunct Neptune

Cosmic Weather:

“If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is – infinite.” William Blake

With the Moon ensconced in imaginative Pisces, all day, the astrological sign symbolizing transcendence or the domain of the infinite, and logical Mercury exactly conjunct Neptune, the ruler of Pisces (for the third and final time), today decidedly has an otherworldly or more mystical vibe to it!

Meaning, in part, that our more practical day-to-day concerns also tend to be glossed over or subjugated now in favor of reeling in our dreams, visions, or fantasies. In other words, this is an excellent time for crafting the big picture view of how we would like our future to be. Perhaps not as good, though, for penciling in all the logistical details regarding how we’re specifically going to be running our exquisite kingdoms or queendoms. 🙂 Additionally, the Pisces energy is also positive for dissolving differences, or for working more in unison with others. 

Of course, since this is also the conclusion of the three-part Mercury and Neptune meetup – which also sort of feels like some kind of TV docudrama, at this point! – we should be receiving some parting insight, or guidance, or clarity now regarding the meaning or purpose of this particular planetary aspect in our lives. It’s like the Neptunian veil is finally lifting and we’re able to peek and see what’s behind it! It could be an illusion or delusion is revealed. Or maybe a cryptic message or communication becomes clearer. Or, perhaps, something that has been withheld by us, or from us, possibly out of fear, comes out of the shadows and dances into the light.

Today’s Astrology April 1, 2019: Pisces Moon Squares Mars

Cosmic Weather:

“Faith does not need to push the river because faith is able to trust that there is a river. The river is flowing. We are in it.” Richard Rohr

The waning Moon exits detached Aquarius and shifts into transcendent Pisces (10:48 am), potentially creating more of a desire now for inner peace, disengagement, and, perhaps, relying more on our faith, over the next couple days.

However, about midday, today, the Moon also forms a square to assertive Mars, newly-deposited in quickening Gemini (12:44 pm). At this time, we may temporarily feel compelled to want to push or force matters along. It could maybe be due to a perceived need for defensive posturing. Or, perhaps, we’re simply exhibiting an overreaction to something cropping up in the moment that leaves us feeling a little unsettled. It’s possible, too, that an expectation that we had for something is also not being met. Or, it may be none of the above! 🙂

Anyway, in order to get back into the composure groove, we might find it best to just take a momentary pause, if possible. Try to get away from whatever is possibly pulling our trigger. Fortunately, too, a lunar sextile to ‘change strategist’ Uranus, in grounded Taurus (1:29 pm), can help us to suddenly gain a fresh, new perspective on matters so we no longer feel that we have to be in control mode. We’re also creatively practical with this aspect.

*All times EDT

On This Day in History: On April 1, 1976, Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs found Apple Computer in the garage of Jobs’ parent’s house in Cupertino, California.

Among the planetary aspects in the sky that day, pioneering Mars, in tenacious Cancer, was exactly forming a waning trine to Uranus, the ruler of technology, in the transforming sign of Scorpio. Mars-Uranus energy is perfect for putting into motion items or projects that are cutting-edge, original, or unique.

On a lighter note, thought it was kind of cool, too, that Mars was in home and family ruling Cancer, that day, and Apple was started in Jobs’ parent’s garage! Gotta’ love the synchronicity!

Today’s Astrology March 31, 2019: Mars Enters Gemini

Cosmic Weather:

“You are not the victim of the world, but rather the master of your own destiny. It is your choices and decisions that determine your destiny.” Roy T. Bennett

Animating Mars enters the information gathering/sharing sign of Gemini today (2:12 am), where it will stay until May 15. Mars in curious, communicative Gemini serves to expand the general awareness of our environment as well as steps up our daily interactions with it.

We’re also seeking to enlarge the playing field of our options now as Mars in Gemini motivates us to ferret out greater variety in our lives. Accordingly, the choices that we make, or the decision-making process, also potentially becomes more complicated as we sort through a plethora of possibilities.

Too, we’ll likely be needing more flexibility or wiggle room with respect to how we execute what we undertake now, over the next six weeks, as Gemini doesn’t like to be pinned down. Of course, there’s always a danger, with Mars in the sign of the twins, that we’ll scatter our energy or spread ourselves around, too thin, going in too many different directions. Our natural orientation now more akin to that of a busy bumblebee, going around, from flower to flower, gathering nectar. In mutable Gemini, Mars function is to first gather or collect, and then to disseminate, the bounty it has accumulated.

On This Day in History: On March 31, 1889, the Eiffel Tower officially opens in Paris. The structure was built for the Exposition Universelle, or World’s Fair, and was the main symbol of the event.

Cosmic Weather:

“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to reform (or pause and reflect).” Mark Twain

There’s a nice release in the energy today in that we have the Moon, all day, in detached, futuristic Aquarius, the sign of the observer and reformer. No doubt, a welcoming counterpoint to some of the emotionalism and fogginess suggested by the lingering Mercury-Neptune conjunction in impressionable Pisces.

The waning Moon in Aquarius also harmoniously sextiles the pioneering Sun in Aries, this afternoon (5:53 pm). Adding, perhaps, to our sense of self-confidence and leadership ability, and potentially bestowing more of a feeling of inner balance.

The Aries-Aquarian energy is ideal for immersion in any type activities that make us feel, individually, that we’re powering ourselves forward (Aries) while at the same time doing something that we perceive will also possibly be beneficial or meaningful for the collective (Aquarius). We’re also more turned on now by things that are cutting-edge, innovative, wacky, maybe even shocking!

*All times EDT

On This Day in History: On March 30, 1981, President Ronald Reagan is shot and wounded in an assassination attempt by John Hinckley, Jr.; three others are also wounded.

Astrologically, in the sky that day, warrior Mars was separating (one-degree) from an exact conjunction to the Sun in initiating Aries. The Sun symbolizes authority figures or persons in power.

Today’s Astrology March 29, 2019: Mars 29 Degrees and a Waning Capricorn Moon

Cosmic Weather:

“Starting is not most people’s problem, staying, continuing and finishing is.” Darren Hardy

With the Sun in enterprising (fiery) Aries today and the waning Moon in ambitious (earthy) Capricorn, both action-oriented cardinal signs, there’s excellent energy at our disposal now for finishing up our ‘to-do’ or ‘should-do’ lists (Moon conjunct Saturn), for clearing out (Moon conjunct Pluto), for doing whatever is practical or grounding for us (Moon trine Mars). Moon trining Mars also serves to enliven our emotions (8:05 pm). Plus, with energizing Mars, the ruler of Aries, at 29 degrees of manifesting Taurus, today and tomorrow (anaretic or critical degree), we may feel propelled to take some key, last minute-actions now, on matters that we’ve maybe had on the back burner for a while. In other words, there’s possibly some desperation to our actions now. Kind of like: “I’m going to get this sucker done, if it’s the last thing I do!”

“Feeling lost, crazy and desperate belongs to a good life as much as optimism, certainty and reason.” – Alain de Botton

On This Day in History: On March 29, 1973, the last U.S. troops withdraw from South Vietnam. Astrologically, on that day, intellectual Mercury in sensitizing Pisces was exactly square to restrictive Saturn in cerebral Gemini, an aspect that, on the shadow side, potentially makes us much more serious-minded and more painfully aware of the various hardships in life, the limitations, the losses. It’s, needless to say, a very sobering energy. But, also one that often pushes us to make more difficult and final decisions. It’s also a time when we sometimes say goodbye. Additionally, Mars and Jupiter were conjunct in change-oriented, liberating Aquarius, and both applying to a sextile to Neptune in philosophical Sagittarius. Neptune’s dissolving ray is often prominent with respect to crafting peace treaties, ending wars, discord, or violence.

“It is not enough to win a war; it is more important to organize the peace.” – Aristotle

Famous March 29 Birthdays: Eugene McCarthy, Sam Walton, Billy Carter, John Major, Karen Ann Quinlan
