I’ll be on the coast of Main all this week looking for a new home. Wish me good fortune and serendipity. The housing market is not very forgiving and this may not be an easy task. If you happen to live in the vicinity of Belfast Maine, reach out if you know of available rentals or have other advice about living in the area.
A STEADY STEP FORWARD
Monday, April 4, 2022
The week begins with the Moon in steadfast Taurus as she begins her cycle of growth (waxing moon). This is the time of the month to set things in motion, to push forward for tangible results. While the Moon is in Taurus the tangible results involve physical pleasures and emotional devotion. We are motivated by a need for material security, loyalty, peace, comfort, and pleasure.
At 9:51 PM Eastern time, Mars conjuncts Saturn. This begins a 2-year cycle of showing you the necessity to take action on a difficult long-term task or project. If you feel frustrated or angry about something, this is the thing that you must take action on. Don’t move forward quickly or try to take on a huge part of the project at once. Small, slow, steady steps forward are the way to get anything done that will sustain you in the future.
Pay attention to your obligations and responsibilities. This is not a time for rest or fun. You may not like it, you may even be bored but you need to manage yourself and your expectations with maturity. Slow and steady wins the race.
AT 11:04 PM Eastern time the Moon enters Gemini. The next few days will bring more lighthearted conversations and curiosity about how others live and think.
THE SWEET SPOT OF PISCES
Tuesday, April 5, 2022
With the Moon in Gemini, the most important thing is to use your intellect and your voice. Your mind is busy and you want to explore and share ideas and conversations with others. You want to cover a variety of topics with a rather light hand. The Gemini Moon is light-hearted and is not interested in deep, profound, or difficult topics.
At 11:17 AM Eastern time, Venus enters Pisces. This is a joyful time for Venus, the planet of love and values. In Pisces Venus is exalted. She also joins Neptune and Jupiter who are in their domicile (their happy place) here. This is a happy little gathering of planets in Pisces. Find Pisces in your chart, this is a sweet spot for you over the coming days. It will be sweet to be at the ocean at this time!
GYMNASTICS OF THE MIND SETTLE THE HEART
Wednesday, April 6, 2022
We are all adjusting to Venus newly in Pisces. Notice how your imagination, compassion, and intuition are heightened. The adjustment period may feel confusing, let yourself hold a space of dreaminess, and don’t insist that everything makes perfect sense.
The Moon is in Gemini all day suggesting a pull toward social gatherings, interesting conversations of curious and youthful concerns.
Notice how stimulating conversations and mental gymnastics can help your emotions stabilize while the Moon is in this quick-moving mutable Air sign. Without mental stimulation, it is easy to become irritable or anxious. Keep your mind occupied with a variety of light-hearted tasks.
PRACTICAL SKILLS FOR THE FUTURE
Thursday, April 7, 2022
The Gemini Moon has kept us restless and mentally activated for the past few days. Restlessness may continue this morning but will give way when the Moon enters Cancer at 11:30 AM Eastern time. to
When the Moon is in Cancer, we long to feel a sense of safety, protection and belonging. Consider taking quiet action to build an emotional connection with family and loved ones. We are able, at this time to find meaning in simple domestic activities that are supportive of a loving family and home.
At 8:37 AM Eastern time, Mercury forms a sextile aspect to Saturn clarifying a level of clear thinking and practical judgment. This is a good day for study, research, and catching up on paperwork and business dealings. Long-range plans are seen in a practical light and are likely to be approached with common sense. Serious conversations support the development of practical skills and understanding for the future.

SPEAK UP ON YOUR BEHALF
Friday, April 8, 2022
The Moon is happy in its home sign of Cancer today. This keeps issues of sensitivity, tenderness, and affection on display throughout the day. Prepare yourself to offer this level of kindness to others. Everyone is in need of affection, understanding, protection, and security. These needs are quite prominent while the Moon moves through this sign.
When you encounter folks who are moody and sad, offer them an ear, a warm embrace, and a cup of tea. Consider your own needs as well. Do you need tea, patience, self-kindness, and self-protection? Let others know what you need. They may well be ready to help.
At 2:18 PM Eastern Mercury sextiles Mars speeds up your mind and your desire to assertively express yourself. If there is a project that you have been trying to get off the ground today is a good time to push that project forward. Go after what you want and speak up in support of your desires. If there are things that you have hesitated to speak up for on your own behalf, now is the time to push that conversation forward.
ACTION AND ADJUSTMENT
Saturday, April 9, 2022
The First Quarter phase of the Moon occurs when the Sun and Moon are ninety degrees apart. This happens a week after the New Moon and a week before the Full Moon. This is a time of action and adjustment as you push the intention of the New Moon forward and reach for the Full Moon.
The Moon remains in Cancer all-day focusing attention on nurturing and comforting ourselves and others. Tenderness and loving attention are easier to get and receive at this time. Cancer is the Cardinal Water sign asking that we take action for the good of emotional security.
The Moon forms lovely supportive trine aspects to Jupiter and Neptune this morning suggesting a strong connection to compassion for others, deep intuition, and an increase in imagination. Allow yourself to dream. Just before bedtime as the Moon opposes Pluto something powerful and potentially uncomfortable may raise its head. Get to sleep and it will be long gone by morning.
BEWARE OF RABBIT HOLES
Sunday, April 10, 2022
When you wake this morning you realize that the emotional sensitivity of the past few days has passed. Now that the Moon is in Leo your attention turns to a very different type of emotional need.
Now you want to authentically express yourself with warmth and generosity. We all want a stage from which to shine our brightest light. We want others to see us for the qualities that make us special.
At 4:45 AM Eastern time, Mercury squares Pluto. This is the last aspect Mercury makes while in Aquarius, the sign of innovation and revolutionary change. A bold, extreme, or intense conversation could ensue. Please don’t fall down any rabbit holes of extreme conspiracy theories. You may find yourself or others becoming defensive or feeling backed into a corner. Secrets may be revealed and you may come to understand something previously hidden from view.
At 10:09 PM whatever seemed so extreme closes down as Mercury releases its hold on aggressive thinking and heads into the calm arena of Taurus. At this point, your thoughts should settle down finding solid ground and stability. Common sense comes to the fore and we are more deliberate and less triggered. Your mind may turn to stubbornly fixed positions but it will hold fast to practicality and release the intrigue of extreme ideas.
The Changing Moon this Week
The Moon sets the emotional tone as she moves through the Zodiac day-to-day. It takes approximately 28 days to traverse the entire Zodiac.
