“Magenta Star” by Lyn Dalebout
No matter the form of how you celebrated this recent season of Passover/Easter/Ostara, rebirth and resurrection are at hand. This week, the long anticipated Grand Cross or Square arrives. This aspect holds the geometry of four, which is the number symbolizing building solid creations in this physical dimension. Think of this week as building a new foundation for the home of YOU, be that internally or externally or both. Both fear and excitation can be present within you and around you. Emotional waves may move through your body like chills. As always , some of you will experience these aspects prior to exact alignment, while others shortly after.

Big news as the next catalytic square of Uranus to Pluto (the next one will be December 2014) becomes exact today. This astrological cycle mirrors the radical, violent and exciting shifts we Earthlings are navigating at this time. Last week and in the coming week, further clarity arises about what you need to do to change up your life to survive and thrive amidst the great uncertainty. Also you may get even more motivated in regards to some cause near to your heart and values. Also, we are learning to live in time, out of time in a whole new way. That’s my experience anyway. Also around midnight a more localized aspect arises as the Capricorn Moon makes the monthly last quarter square to the Sun in Aries, indicating it’s time to bring to completion the last wave of shifts in preparation for what’s to come with the next New Moon a week from today. With the Sun currently in initiatory Aries and the Moon in organizational Capricorn, today and tomorrow are days to focus on logistics that will support your next projects. The Moon also squares the wonderful Juno/Mercury conjunction. Communicate with caring partners and collaborative friends. New partnerships are coming or going in your life and new mindsets need to be embedded via meditation and intention to help you succeed in the future. Stale moldy ideas of self or how you see the world can to be discarded and fast. What once took a year to clear, now takes a mere few hours.

It’s Earth Day, the day I celebrate my favorite leader and celebrity ~ EARTH ~ without whom we simply wouldn’t exist. This will one day be an international shared holiday, mark my words. But back to the details of today’s forecast. You might wake up with a bit of tension, immediate crisis or just a feeling of being cornered as the last quarter Moon greets you upon awakening. This aspect arrives like clock work once a month and reminds us it is time to take some necessary action in regards to some arising conflict or completion of a project. And as Mercury in Aries ~ planetary ruler of our minds, ideas, thoughts ~ crosses the South Node ~ leaving behind the past or a feeling of needing to go it alone. If you have worked diligently towards some end, chances are you can breathe a sigh of relief today about a job well done.

Mars opposes Uranus as this day begins. This makes for a volatile day so move cautiously and carefully so as to avoid accidents, breathe before you decide to erupt in someone’s face. Also major breakthroughs can happen. This Grand Cross is taking place in what are called the mutable signs in the true sidereal galactic constellations. Be willing to drop everything fast, and act a moment’s notice to shift in a new direction. Living in the unfolding moment of NOW is NOW truly the key to surviving and thriving. Today’s challenging square of Moon in Capricorn to Saturn in Libra means changes in our institutions and old power structures are experiencing the great dismantling necessary to precede reinvention.
Thu April 24
Today’s emotional Moon conjunct compassionate Neptune helps absorb the shocks and awakenings of recent days. Reach out to a good friend or to someone you feel spiritually or creatively in alignment with and share stories. The supportive trine of Venus in Aquarius to Saturn in Libra conveys a similar message, occurring near midnight and carrying over influence tomorrow. You are not alone and many others you know are in the same boat of transition as you. We are making this shift together friends, and in that there is unending solace and gratitude. It is what is sustaining me. Reach out and move beyond any sense of isolation which will only further your struggle. Be supported or support another.
Fri April 25
A brilliant day of both illumination of heart and mind. A sky alignment linked to mental genius, the annual Sun/Mercury conjunction occurs. Also a heart portal opens as the ruler of our emotions, the Moon, is sandwiched between Chiron ~ vulnerability/healing ~ and Venus ~ love/art. Both these dynamics support surprising creativity and new relationships erupting.
Sat April 26
It’s a Pisces Moon weekend, great for resting, daydreaming, water related activities, slowing down. Read some poetry, pick up your guitar, write some poetry. Feel this divine energy of just Being.
Sun April 27
Pisces Moon continues and today is joined by a positive sextile of Neptune ~ ruler of Pisces, creativity, spirituality ~ to our brightest solar system’s star, the Sun. May you continue to receive divine downloads and uploads from the place of your deep soul longings.
