The Moon in Pisces passes over Venus in Pisces at 5:34pm EST, then enters Aries at 8:32pm EST. Its entrance into Aries will interrupt the watery comfort of a conjunction with Venus in Pisces where Venus is in exaltation. You may feel this energy shift as somewhat frantic or tense. The Moon sextiles Mars in Gemini at 11:34pm EST, adding extra charge and fuel to the fiery Aries energy. Since Mars rules Aries, it is currently dispositing the Moon, or guiding it, so to speak. You may feel confident or justified in your reactions to your emotional hunches.

Mercury in Aries trines Saturn rx in Sagittarius at 4:15am EST. Your inspirations and inventions may feel challenged today due to Saturn’s retrograde movement, but take this challenge as an opportunity for refinement. Saturn wants us to put ourselves out there only when we’ve made all crosschecks and tweaks. Mercury in Aries will tempt you to act impulsively, so just make sure that you’ve gone through everything with a second set of eyes before putting it out on display.

The Moon passes over Uranus in Aries at 2:04pm EST, Mercury in Aries at 4:29pm EST, and then enters Taurus at 9:56pm EST. The conjunctions with Uranus and Mercury bring us flashes of insight and inspiration, perhaps even motivating conversation, that at first glance might seem improbable or unadvised; however, once the Moon moves into Taurus, the stability it provides may shed light on how those ideas are more easily conquered or achieved.
Wednesday, April 26th
A New Moon in Taurus takes place at 8:16am EST. A New Moon occurs approximately once a month when the Moon and the Sun meet up at the same degree in the same sign, in this case at 6°27’ Taurus. When any planet is within 17’ (minutes) of the Sun, it is said to be cazimi, and is therefore amplified in expression by the Sun. The cazimi New Moon is an increased opportunity period that is best used about 30 minutes before and after the exact New Moon. If you have something important to accomplish, this time period is the most fruitful of the entire day.

The Moon in Taurus trines Pluto in Capricorn at 4:50am EST. This earth trine provides us with the instinct and motivation to complete the task at hand, but perhaps in an unexpected or seemingly impossible way. If your ideas are challenged today, look for a resolution in the place you feel least likely to find it. With Pluto in the mix, you want control of the outcome, but you must be willing to let go of being attached to the ways in which the outcome is accomplished. You may experience extreme emotional reserve or outbursts in response to today’s creative energy. The Moon moves into Gemini at 9:39pm EST, adding a intellectualized spin to your projects.
Friday, April 28th
Venus enters Aries for her second spin in the fiery, Mars-ruled sign at 9:13am EST today. In general, it has been a challenging year so far for Venus, with a retrograde period sending her back and forth through Aries (where she is in detriment and least able to fully function) and several meetups with Saturn throughout the year. This might result in feeling creatively spent or romantically challenged, or perhaps both. With Mercury and Uranus also in Aries, there is a lot of impulsive and reactive energy surrounding the concepts that Venus represents, including love, relationships, artistic expression, and money.
Saturday, April 29th
The Moon enters Cancer today at 9:48pm EST and shortly thereafter squares Venus in Aries at 10:59pm EST. The Moon/Venus square continues to compromise Venus in her transit through Aries. This square can result in feeling as though your self-esteem and comfort zone are being disrupted in the most abrupt way. If you can grow from any resulting conflict, whether internal or external (but most likely internal), you will be one step closer to managing the Venus in Aries transit which lasts until June 6th.
