The Cancer Moon trines Neptune around sunrise and intuition takes the lead over logic. What did your morning dreams tell you? Domestic concerns are highlighted today and we would be wise to note that this protective, emotionally-sensitive Cancer Moon will form a bridge to Pluto (7:35 PM) and a stepping stone square to Uranus at 9:43 PM. Personal or professional power struggles could emerge based on old wounds, so watch your reactions and allow others their space as the ‘still in effect’ Pluto/Uranus square… still resonates.
Mars has a retrograde cycle that happens every 2 and 1/2 years. This year it will retrograde mostly in Scorpio and today is the beginning of the shadow, the point that Mars will return to during its backwards and retrospective journey. The actual retrogrades lasts from April 17th to June 29th.
I mention this now, because the actions and choices that are paramount at this time are ones we will return to in the spring for review and we will reinitiate them this summer and fall. Mars signifies our will power, it’s how we take action, how we find the courage to act and create our lives. With Mars in Scorpio, this is a time to align your inner will power with the Big Divine Picture and transform any blocks that are in the way. Scorpio is powerful, tenacious and digs deep to uncover what is hidden. Yes, we will be clearing more stuff, and we will be more energized as a result and certainly more free.
The Sun leaves the air sign of Aquarius and enters the water sign of Pisces tonight at 11:34 PM. Consciousness moves from air to water, from intellect to emotion and from Uranus (ruler of Aquarius) to Neptune (ruler of Pisces). Pisces, in it’s higher vibration, is all about compassion, kindness, intuition and Universal Love, while reaching for new states of conciousness with Source. In it’s lower vibration, Pisces can express escapism, victimhood and excessive use of substances to alter reality. Pisces is the time of year for heightened intuition and creative imagination and compassionate acts. With the Sun in Pisces, staying grounded and setting appropriate boundaries for balance, will help us to resonate with the higher frequency.
My perspective: Planetary cycles do not control us… they are currents of energy that we can ride with greater ease by releasing resistance and going with the flow. Everything is moving.
