and for the weekend—moving to the cerebral—april 10th – 12th

edward-burne-jones-4-the-golden-stairsWell, today, Mercury exacts his conjunction with the Aries Sun at 20° and then skadaddles right on past.

This lends a purity to the overall vibe of the weekend.  Our minds and conscious will are one and the same. No conflict, no divergent agendas—just straight up Aries!!!

Couple the above Cardinal Fire with the Moon traveling almost extensively through Cardinal Earth Capricorn for the next 3 days and just cold hard decisive action will characterize the atmosphere.

Saturday, lovely Venus moves from Taurus to Gemini. This marks a shift from lazy luxury to a desire for mental stimulation. Our Earthy senses relinquish control and the Airy workings of the intellect take over.

Fire Mercury and Air Venus—great for conversation and social mingling!

Then, Taurus Mars and Pisces Neptune sextile on Sunday for a pleasant boost to all the work the Warrior has been steady at the last week and a half. Water aids Earth with insights into imagination and emotional know-how. Duty won’t feel so heavy, as Neptune’s fog dissolves a bit of the burden for the day.

By and large, the weekend is one of the mind with a thrust toward getting tangible results.

week ahead—buoyant recovery after the eclipse—april 6th – 9th

Ok, for our lovely Spring week ahead there is quite a bit of Jupterian activity to help us bounce back from the intense Eclipse/Full Moon over the past weekend.

edward-burne-jones-45-the-pilgrim-at-the-gate-of-idlenessThe waning Moon is now sailing through Scorpio, zinging Neptune and Pluto, and will end up in Sagittarius by week’s end—paying visit to Saturn, Jupiter and Uranus. Intensity of emotion and looming questions of ‘why?’ spice the atmosphere all week.

Pisces Chiron has moved out of tight sextile with Capricorn Pluto leaving us to experience the full strength of the Uranus/Pluto square at 15°/16°.  This points to an edgier demonstration of the revolution/evolution bite of the two. Sadly, gentle compassion during this tumultuous time will be harder to access.

The Aries Sun and Mercury exact their conjunctions with Uranus during the week, while Taurus Mars inconjuncts Sagittarius Saturn Rx in their first I/O/Q meeting. There are brilliantly brave ideas burning their way into reality nowadays and, if recognized, then given the proper structure, can take hold into something riotously vital.

Our minds not only get electrified by the genius of Uranus, but also smash into Pluto, God of the Underworld. The trick is to guard against unfounded suspicion and cynicism. These will only get in the way.

Instead, demand to see the positive in the most dire of situations, which will be aided my Mercury trining Leo Jupiter Rx for the King of Planet’s last interaction with a celestial body (other than the Moon) before turning direct on Wednesday. He revisits 12° – 22°—if you have points or planets here you get an extra boost to the joy and good fortune!!

The multitude of Spring Aries Fire combined with Jupiter’s about face signals a collective shift from contently navel gazing to a more pronounced need to interact with the outside world—conquer and leave your mark!

Ample, encouraging energy is available to bolster the work of Venus and Mars in Fixed Earth, while they labor to shore up the projects of Cardinal Fire.

Again, the Universe provides the building blocks for success.

honing your craft—mars in taurus—march 31 – may 11

Mars has left the sign he rules, Aries.

Burne-Jones-Third-Day-of-CreationMany have been running amok—going here and there—just moving to move, shedding old Winter skins for a lighter, shinier outfit.

Battle ready but desperate for purpose. All this energy and these ideas—ughhhh, no place to go!

Unfocused Mars Aries.

Well, the Warrior has now moved into Taurus.

Taurus is the Bull—the Fixed Earth sign—things now will become far more practical and “focus” for focus’ sake will be a sight bit easier to embody.

With his ingress to the second sign, the Warrior joins Venus in her own sign, her own realm. He mutates himself to her function and form. He champions the ideals she holds supreme—this means our modus operandi will become thankfully a lot more easy going, too.

The wildfire of Aries becomes the hearth fire of Taurus.
