Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: April 8, 2019, through April 14, 2019

When applied to the life experience of an individual, astrology is a means of recognizing and actualizing one’s potential as a fully realized human. Astological study can and should affect a profound transformation in the consciousness of the person who studies it.
Are you ready for this deep transformation in your own life?
My life purpose involves expanding astrological understanding for powerful human growth. I do this one conversation at a time. Contact me TODAY for a FREE 20-minute conversation to discuss the next steps on your path studying astrology.
Monday, April 8, 2019:
You may wonder why even with Mercury now moving forward and the Sun well into Aries, you still have the feeling of wandering through a fog. Don’t worry, it won’t last too much longer. For now, relax into it. Rely a bit more on intuition than you normally would. Venus, the planet of love and Mercury, the planet of communication are still floating within the mists of Neptune, the planet of elusive dreams. Don’t be disturbed if reality seems a bit challenging to grasp and those around you seem oversensitive or even bewildered. The best way to use this energy is to welcome the rest, focus on spiritual growth, develop compassion, write poetry, and spend time in prayer and meditation.
The Moon in Taurus, making no aspect throughout the day supports a day focused on rest and comfort.
At 5:16 PM EDT the Moon enters Gemini, you may suddenly find yourself ready to enjoy a cheerful evening in the company of dynamic enthusiastic friends.
The Taurus Moon is void-of-course from 4:28 AM EDT until she enters the Gemini at 5:16 PM EDT. This condition merely suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have a significant future impact.
Tuesday, April 9, 2019:
With the Moon in Gemini conjunct Mars in the early morning hours, your mind and your voice want to move quickly. There may be little concern for others, leaving them easily caught in the crossfire and left feeling hurt or offended.
Slow down a bit and don’t say everything that comes to mind. Didn’t your parents tell you to count to ten before speaking your mind? This is a good day to practice that type of restraint.
Later in the day as Venus approaches Neptune we have a few more days of increased sensitivity and dreaminess. Your intimate relationships may reach great heights of devotion as you are able to tap into powerful compassion, inspiration, and even transcendence through Love connections. Your imagination is strong and reality doesn’t have a very firm hold on you regarding love. Below the surface, things may be very different than they seem. Please do enjoy the rose-colored glasses AND understand that reality will land you on more solid stable ground.
Wednesday, April 10, 2019:
Such a complex day may have you wondering which end is up and exactly how to proceed. The Moon is (appropriately) in Gemini, offering the ability to move quickly between emotional realities.
Venus conjunct Neptune suggests that you are able to experience open compassionate connections and a deep awareness of Oneness with all of life. However, the Sun squaring Saturn will not let you rest in that easy space but brings serious challenges that must be faced. Reality and dreamy fantasy wrangle against one another. Are your responsibilities pushing against the beautiful inspiration you long for? You must give space to both the realities and the dreams, both must be honored with patience and self-kindness.
Look for an opportunity in the evening to engage in deep powerful conversations, study, and/or research. Your mind is able to probe deeply into corners that are not often available for exploration.
Jupiter turns retrograde in Sagittarius and will stay in this condition until August 11th. Look to the house that holds Sagittarius in your chart. Something that has been expanding in this area of your life is now due for a rest. Stop pushing and allow the process to continue on a more internal level. Trust that the work goes on and that there will be a renewed increase later in the year.
Just before sleep the Moon enters Cancer. Sleep will nurture you at the end of this active challenging day.
The Gemini Moon is void-of-course from 1:27 PM EDT until she enters Cancer at 11:31 PM EDT. This condition merely suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have a significant future impact.

Thursday, April 11, 2019:
As you regain your bearings you can anticipate more rest and ease with very little astrological activity throughout the day. The Moon moves through sensitive Cancer encouraging you to settle into the safety net of family, close friends, and comfort food. If your life is more complicated than to allow for such simplicity you may find yourself feeling nostalgic and consumed with memories and thoughts of the past.
If your thoughts of the past all seem rosy and bright, question yourself. On a day like this, your memory is probably playing a few tricks on you. Rather than spending time on the past, create comfort for yourself and your family now. Engage in domestic chores and routines, bring food to your loved ones, offer comfort and solace. Yes, you may be quite moody but think how deeply you can impact others by bringing warmth, love, and chocolate cake to those you love.
Spend the day creating loving memories rather than dwelling in the past.
Friday, April 12, 2019:
Mid-morning (11:07 AM EDT) brings a sextile aspect between Venus and Saturn, suggesting that you are able to develop a warm sense of connection with your coworkers. You probably also feel positive regard for the projects and plans you are working on and the accomplishments of the day. The Moon is still in Cancer encouraging you to relate to others on a deeply personal level.
However, by mid-afternoon, you may wonder why you wanted that level of familiarity with your coworkers as the First Quarter Square of the Moon (a square aspect between the Cancer Moon and the Aries Sun at 3:06 PM EDT) challenges that connection. The First Quarter Moon brings with it challenges and opportunities. Do not question your kindness and your willingness to allow others to see your vulnerabilities. That takes courage! It may feel difficult at the moment but in the long run, remember that within our vulnerabilities lay our strengths.
The Cancer Moon is void-of-course after 7:33 PM EDT. This condition merely suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have a significant future impact.
Saturday, April 13, 2019:
Anticipate a powerful weekend and one you may remember long after it has passed. By the time the day begins the Moon is in dramatic, expressive Leo and the Sun has formed a square aspect to powerful Pluto. You may feel an edge of fear or determination in everything you try to do. You may struggle with the need to be in control as you encounter folks who may challenge you on your efforts, understanding, or authority. You will do well to step aside and release your egos’ position unless you think it is a good idea to push hard to defend that position. Do your best to channel and surrender the intensity you feel into a project, accomplishment, or hard work.
Spend time with creative activities. Hold love and kindness to the light. When the challenges have passed, play as though it were your job. Allow all difficulties and challenges to pass without holding on tightly. Bring affection, fondness, and radiance to all that you do.
The Cancer Moon is void-of-course until she enters Leo at 3:51 AM EDT. This condition merely suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have a significant future impact.

Sunday, April 14, 2019:
What a difference a day makes, and in this case, I expect you will experience it as a delightful difference. Gone are the power dynamics from yesterday. Perhaps you made great decisions and are now reaping the benefits. At 9:40 AM EDT the Sun trine expansive Jupiter, both in Fire Signs, offering a flow of enthusiasm, warmth, and joyful celebration. Make this a special day. Gather with friends for fun and play. If you have children in your life, spend time with them. Build fairy houses in the woods, put on a play, or fly a kite! Don’t be afraid of looking foolish, we can all use a day of active creativity and play. Allow your warmth, generosity, and open-hearted acceptance to rule the day.
At 7:51 PM EDT Venus forms a supportive sextile aspect to Pluto deepening your love relationships and increasing your desire for close companionship. This brings you to a great evening for romance or deep connections with friends. Relationships and romances may begin at this time so if you are looking for love or closer friendships don’t stay home alone tonight. Get out into the world where you can meet and mingle with others.
The Leo Moon is void-of-course after 9:39 PM EDT. This condition merely suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have a significant future impact.

“We use astrology most constructively and creatively when we gain from it a sense of what is possible for us at the highest levels of our potentialities. Seeing that, the challenges is then to keep our eyes open to life itself, to be able to respond appropriately when some event or change of circumstances…”
~ Dane Rudhyar “Astrological Aspects – a Process-Oriented Approach” 1980

* In these weekly reports, I am exploring the major aspects formed by transit between the planets. I do not consider every aspect that the Moon makes each day as they can be numerous and are often fleeting moods. I will consider the final major aspect formed by the Moon prior to its VOC* time, as that aspect holds its influence throughout the VOC*.
The aspects under consideration: conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.
The planets I work with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.
