Star Signposts: Last Quarter Moon ~ April 8 – 14

Are any of you feeling sudden tidal waves of emotion moving through you and throughout your day, vascillating between tears and a churning rage or passion? Or waves of astounding energy then needing to crash and rest? If so, it’s all part of the sky tension that is enveloping our planetary field. This dynamic was brilliantly, consciously expressed by the young leaders last weekend in the March for our Lives events all over the globe. Out of their grief, it is astonishing how quickly and forcefully these courageous, evolved avatars, unafraid to take on the old authority figures and organizations, have mobilized and literally shifted the world.

At the tail end of this SolLunar Cycle, just before the next New Moon we are gifted the second of three of the Jupiter/Pluto sextiles. Read on!

I am so grateful to post my friend Lucinda Abbe’s calming water paintings in this month of water Pisces accompanied by the ferocity of the fiery Mars/Saturn in Sagittarius offering a soothing visual portal for the readers to visit. Thank you, Lucinda. Check out these links for Lucinda’s meditation teaching and for Lucinda’s art.

MINI-READINGS: Consider a sidereal mini-reading with me for $44 (the number of living your Mastery on Earth). I will discuss where last year’s historic Total Solar Eclipse is still taking place in your chart, along with other personal transits for 2018. You will get a whole lot of information! Please send me an email if that is of interest to you. Thank you!

I post twice a month, on the New Moon (which includes the two weeks of New Moon and First Quarter Moon) and on the Full Moon (which includes the two weeks of Full Moon and Last Quarter Moon). As you work with and within the natural flow of time and supportive cosmic energies of each unique SolLunar Cycle, life will flow with more ease and grace. My interpretations and predictions are based on the true sidereal astronomical alignments. You can read about my unique way of interpreting astrology at this link: EarthWord SkyWord sidereal readings. Even NASA is onboard now with the sidereal zodiac!

Last Quarter Moon

Here is a description of the qualities of the Last Quarter Moon phase compliments of my friend and sidereal colleague, Nick Anthony Fiorenza at Lunar Planner:

“This phase completes with our Inner Needs surfacing to consciousness, to become aware of what is important to self and what is not. Knowing now what our Truth is, it is time to consciously live it. Doing so provides a choice for others to also live theirs. Changing allows us to spiral to a new octave of experience—one that will eventually sprout in the next lunar cycle to come.”

 

Sun April 8

Last Quarter Moon: Moon/Pluto in Sagittarius square Sun in Pisces sextile Jupiter in Libra: We are almost through this ferocious cycle that merged the power of our emotions (Pisces) with the will to take action and succeed (Sagittarius). Not surprising this Last Quarter turning point packs a punch, too, as the emotive Moon makes a monthly rendezvous with death-to-the-old, birth-to-the-new Pluto, with an additional upbeat sextile to optimistic Jupiter. If Sunday is usually your day of rest, it probably won’t be that restful today. Appreciate the fire in your belly, move with it, especially in forms of physical activity, and know and claim your power transform your world.

Mon April 9

Moon in Capricorn opposite Ceres in Cancer: Capricorn takes pride in one’s responsibilities, wanting to be successful in all accomplishments. Ceres in Cancer takes joy in nurturing others and lending a helping hand. It’s a perfect day to reach out to the elders and children in your lives, finding out what they love, and finding pride and joy in serving them. And with the helping hand of compassionate Mercury, tender conversations emerge. It’s also an excellent house-cleaning energy, too.

Juno in Aquarius sextile Pluto in Sagittarius: Both these astrological signs are linked more to our future selves rather than our past lives. Morphing into new forms within our current relationships or morphing into new relationships altogether are part of this lovely sextile.

Tue April 10

Moon/South Lunar Node in Capricorn: Since this aspect happens in the wee hours of the morning, it might manifest as haunting dreams about your past and what you have lived through, or show you what you need to let go of and how to proceed. Be open

Venus in Aries trine Mars in Sagittarius: Babies born today will be extraordinary athletes and visionary activists with this aspect, which balances heart-based listening (Venus) with a courageous spirit that must act upon one’s truth (Mars). You, too, can be that person today, and everyday!

Wed April 11

Sun in Pisces square Pluto in Sagittarius: This annual first-quarter square of Sun to Pluto marks a turning point to be sure. Sometimes Pluto appears as dark and challenging events or as a deep-seated drive to move forward, despite objections. Pluto is the great Composter and in that role, serves as a key support in pressuring us to release what no longer serves our higher Good. Change or die, Pluto’s motto. I love Pluto. I trust Pluto. No need to fear Pluto (that’s old school astrology).

Sun in Pisces quincunx Jupiter in Libra: The aspect of the quincunx shows up as the need to make a subtle adjustment in your plans or relationships. Both these signs are peace-seeking and caring so the necessary shift (linked into the intense above aspect) might be more gentle and opening.

Moon in Aquarius sextile Uranus in Aries: Make a spontaneous date or try a new activity with a friend or partner today as Uranus likes to experiment and break free of past constraints.

Thu April 12

Moon/Neptune conjunction in Aquarius: Friendly, cooperative, creative, original, futuristic are all aspects of lovely monthly reunion. Seek out those who are true friends or make a new friend today.

Fri April 13

Moon/Juno conjunction in Aquarius: This aspect is similar to yesterday’s, continuing the interesting conversations that emerged. With Juno involved (asteroid of covenant partnerships and soul colleagues) you might take a personal or collaborative relationship to the next level.

Moon/Chiron conjunction in Pisces: This monthly alignment can bring on a feeling of emotional vulnerability. Visit healing hot springs or luxuriate in a bath within your home. This combo is non-verbal, magical, deeply healing, and part of the completion phase of the Balsamic Moon (the end of a SolLunar Cycle) in which resting more, doing less, are always good activities.

Sat April 14

Jupiter in Libra sextile Pluto in Sagittarius: This marks the middle of three transits of optimistic Jupiter with transformational Pluto, bringing good news concering justice being served and the truth coming forward despite attempts for concealment. The first one was in early January and the finale will be mid-September. As these are both slow moving planets, this isn’t a one day event, but more of a background energy guiding the larger global events in our world. Jupiter brings renewed faith and confidence, and Pluto encourages you to trust your own power even in the face of other’s power abuses. It can mean you are asked to take a calculated risk you have thought through and that will be amply supported if you stay optimistic and focused on your goals.

Moon/Mercury retrograde conjunction in Pisces: It’s cosmically wonderful that Mercury will turn direct tomorrow, the same day as a New Moon linked to shocker, catalytic Uranus. What perfect divine timing. Thank you, Mercury in sidereal Pisces, for all you are teaching us about how to live more intuitively, trusting our inner guidance above all else, and to come from a place of compassion, forgiveness, open-heartedness, loving kindness.

Happy New Moon tomorrow!
