“The day the power of love overrules the love of power, the world will know peace.” Mahatma Gandi
The Sun in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn (9:27 am). This more intense, complicated aspect can often find us pushing too hard to control the scheme of things; we may possibly perceive ourselves to be under attack so we won’t let go. However, holding on too tightly now can also boomerang and work against us, in some instances, particularly by depleting (or exhausting) our energy. Included here, we may also become more aware of specific behaviors that are no longer serving us and should be purged or moved to the curb.
On the other hand, this is not necessarily a time when we need to give up on our goals, especially those that are a central part of our basic self-expression, our personal identity, and or reflect our deeply-held beliefs, values, or viewpoints; instead, we may just need to retool things; to fashion some new creative responses or strategies that allow us to express our personal power and purpose in a more unifying way on an energetic level; that plays to our strengths or hopes (and not to our weaknesses or fears).
The Waxing Crescent Moon also remains in versatile Gemini all day. Imploring us to make connections, seek out alternatives, verbalize our feelings.

On This Day in History: On April 16, 1943, Swiss scientist Dr. Albert Hofmann discovers the psychedelic effects of LSD.
Astrologically, that day, pioneering Mars was at 29 degrees of experimental, innovative Aquarius and applying to an exact quincunx to hallucinogenic Neptune (which rules psychedelic drugs). Neptune was also Rx at 0 degrees and 1 minute of Libra, getting ready to re-enter the health-sign of Virgo. Neptune was an especially important “point-of-focus” in the sky then with its shift back into Virgo; Mars was also a key cosmic player at the critical “29-degree mark” – and getting ready to dive into Neptune-ruled Pisces. Mars-Neptune influences are often associated with seeking out activities that give rise to a “feeling of transcendence” or wanting to experience somehow “otherworldly” connections.
“By observing natural scientific discoveries through a perception deepened by meditation, we can develop a new awareness of reality.” Albert Hofmann
