Monday, April 29, 2019:
You may want nothing more than to continue hitting the snooze button as a new week calls you back, unwillingly to the real world. If only you could spend the day immersed in dreamland. The Moon in dreamy Pisces is certainly a mixed blessing. If you have to get yourself out the door to a job or have significant responsibilities this may be a rough morning. If you are an artist, a philosopher, or a mystic with time to explore imagination and inspiration, you will enjoy the morning tremendously. Regardless of the trajectory of your day, take a bit of time for meditation or prayer before pushing forth any other agenda.
Saturn turns retrograde this evening. The slow-moving planets are retrograde for long periods of time and do not impact us on an intimate level the way the personal planets Mercury, Venus, and Mars tend to.
However with Saturn now turning retrograde consider the house that holds Capricorn in your chart. This is an area that has required a great deal of effort and learning over the past 16 months. Saturn will remain retrograde here until September 18, 2019. If you have planets between 17 and 21 degrees of any Cardinal sign (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) you will be particularly affected by this movement.
Consider the effort you have expended and agenda you have been pushing forward in this area of your life. For now, reverse your focus, go inward, recommit, and make sure the bedrock is firm. Are there things in this area of your life that you need to take responsibility for? Face your responsibilities directly and do some internal work that will help build strength and stability in this area of your life.

Tuesday, April 30, 2019:
I am going to repeat what I said yesterday because it is at least as applicable today: regardless of the trajectory of your day, take a bit of time for meditation or prayer before pushing forth other agendas.
The day begins with the Moon still moving through mystical, imaginative Pisces. Pisces is a Mutable Water sign offering passive, adaptable, but deeply emotional energies. This is a great day to spend time with water, head to the ocean, a river, a lake, or just take a long hot soak in the tub! Allow yourself to be engrossed in imagination, watch movies, write or read poetry, create music.
Make it a point to look directly at every person you encounter today, remember that like you, they are seeking a pleasant life of love and ease. Show kindness, they are each more like you than you know. Show compassion and find a connection in the eyes of the young man behind the cash register at the grocery store or the waitstaff at your favorite restaurant.
Go ahead and enjoy an extra glass of wine before bed, tomorrow you will have much more energy for accomplishment.
The Pisces Moon is void-of-course after 5:58 PM EDT. This condition merely suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have a significant future impact.
Wednesday, May 1, 2019:
Don’t be surprised if you wake up early with lots of energy and lots to say! Mercury, the planet of communication has formed aspects to both Mars and Saturn while you slept. There is a strong pull to say something that seems suddenly important and at the same time, you may be concerned about how well this communication with be received. If you say what you need to say, there will likely be pushback. Perhaps it will go the other way. Someone will deliver communication to you and you will push back. That back and forth is necessary in order to come to a consensus. However with the Moon entering assertive forcefull Aries at 6:24 AM EDT this may not be the best time to push too hard for that direct conversation in intimate relationships. In work or project-based relationships you could get a great deal done with this energy as long as everyone involved is committed to equality and respect.
Watch for impulsivness and hastely made decisions. It will not be easy but do practice patience.
The Pisces Moon is void-of-course until she enters Aries at 6:24 AM EDT. This condition merely suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have a significant future impact.

Thursday, May 2, 2019:
The theme of something that needs to be said continues from yesterday. Were you able to exercise patience? The conversation that you hesitated with yesterday may just burst free now, changing the entire structure of the project you are working on or even the landscape of the relationship itself. Trust that everyone involved can handle significant change. Believe that each of you requires a transformation of the very bedrock that you are standing on. Go ahead and say what needs to be said. Patience was so yesterday! Today, seek empowerment and courage. Where you practiced patience yesterday, now you need to practice diplomatic skills and just plain kindness. Allow what you say to open a window into a new world view for the person you are talking to. Be clear about what you are offering and make sure you are able to deliver on that promise. Integrity, deep compassion, and even passionate love are all required today.
With Mercury forming a trine aspect to Jupiter at 11:58 PM EDT you will fall asleep with a renewed purpose and deep understanding.
Friday, May 3, 2019:
Even though there is an edge of impulsive impatience under the surface, not much is likely to happen for the bulk of the day. The Moon is considered to be void-of-course between the time she makes her final direct major aspect in one sign until she enters the next sign. During these times, not much of significance is likely to occur. At 4:48 AM the Moon conjunct Mercury and forms no other aspects until entering Taurus at 4:18 PM EDT. Spend the day managing your impatience, if you feel that you are spinning your wheels, stop and give yourself time to rest. We are also at the darkest point of the Moon as we await the Taurus New Moon tomorrow.
When the Moon enters Taurus it will come as a relief as the edginess dissipates and you can settle into an evening focused on comfort and pleasure. This would be a great evening to schedule a massage for yourself, head home to cook a nice meal or go for an extended walk in nature.
As the sensual Taurus Moon conjuncts with Uranus at bedtime, prepare ahead with beautiful flowers by your bedside, clean sheets on the bed and plan to indulge in the excitement of body pleasures before sleep.
The Aries Moon is void-of-course from 4:48 AM EDT until she enters Taurus at 4:18 PM EDT. This condition merely suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have a significant future impact.

“Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.” ~ Og Mandino

Saturday, May 4, 2019:
Because the New Moon is not exact until 6:46 PM EDT wait to do the New Moon ritual until tomorrow or even Monday. The New Moon occurs when the Sun and Moon hold the same position, the ritual is most powerful if they are given time to create a bit of distance between them.
This is a day to take your time with everything that you do.
When the Moon is in sensual slow moving Taurus, you are able to experience life more fully through all of your senses. Slow down, be quiet and still. There is no need to push yourself toward any accomplishment. This is a day for self-indulgence and indulging the senses of those around you. Your senses seek arousal with good food, good sex, good music, perhaps a massage. Get outdoors in nature, prepare the soil in your garden, and walk barefoot on the earth. Listen to the trees sing and pay attention to the messages the earth brings forth to those who listen.
~~New Moon Ritual ~~
Take a moment to write down the changes you wish to begin, create, or increase in this Moon Cycle. The Taurus New Moon suggests that you plant a seed of sensuality, patience, and comfort.
Have two candles available. Light a candle to represent yourself, as you are at the moment. Light another candle as inspiration for what you intend to create. Take a moment to focus on yourself as you light the first candle. Then, light the second candle. Imagining drawing toward you that which you want to create as you physically bring the two candles closer together.
Do this each day for two weeks until the Scorpio Full Moon on May 18th when you will bring the candles fully together and acknowledge the result of what you have created.
Sunday, May 5, 2019:
The most significant planetary activity comes at 5:56 PM EDT when Mars, the planet of determination and direct action forms an opposition to Jupiter the planet of expansion and growth. Where in your life are you pushing yourself toward personal growth? What began at the start of their cycle in January of 2018? Look back now and you can see how far you have come on that path in the past 16 months. If you need to make adjustments, now is the time to do so. Use the power of your will and available courage to continue on the path toward increased philosophical understanding.
With the Moon still in Taurus keep close to home. Your desire for loyalty, security, and comfort motivate you. Slow down and enjoy a day of relaxation as you consider those bigger issues of personal growth. This is a day of quiet and stillness. If possible get outdoors, listen to the trees sing and pay attention to the messages the earth offers.
The Taurus Moon is void-of-course from 11:10 AM EST until she enters Gemini at 11:39 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 circumstance.” ~ Dane Rudhyar

* 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.
