2020-04-17 Moon into Pisces; Mercury opposite Juno; Kite; Square Key

Summary

Today is mostly a quiet day for most people with important opportunities that are easily missed.  This forecast is being written during the Moon v/c in Aquarius after Moon perfects a conjunction to Ceres (food and prosperity, and arguably supply chains).  The opportunity involves conversations and short trips revolving about issues of trust.  with Chiron four (4) degrees away from Mercury, some of these conversations may be “painful” but the healing that results can be cathartic.  (India and Pakistan: are you listening to this?  Important conversations about issues of trust!)

Key aspects and patterns for Friday April 17, 2020

  • After a void in Aquarius, Moon moves into Pisces at 1329 CDT (1:29 PM Central Time)
  • Mercury (Aries) opposes Juno (Libra)
  • A kite (opportunity, or possibly opportunities) is present: Juno (Libra) is part of a grand air trine including (a) Vesta at 10 Gemini (along with Venus at 11, Hygeia at 12) and (b) Mars at 12 Aquarius; Mercury opposing Vesta completes the kite
  • A “Square Key” (two interlaced Huber Learning Triangles that share a common quincunx)
  • Sun perfects a square to Pallas Athena (the armored warrior goddess), the third of a series of three square the Sun (Aries) makes to planets (and an asteroid) in Capricorn (Pluto, Jupiter, and Pallas Athena).  Early next week the Sun (in Taurus) will make one of its annual squares to Saturn (now in early Aquarius) to be followed later by squares to Mars and Ceres.
  • Maps: (1) USA Map shows heavy activation in Western Mississippi and region that includes both Memphis and Jackson (to be expected after recent tornadoes and (2) crossings and a descendant line show activation along the India / Pakistan border.  Events at these regions could be “unstable” today.

Forecast

Today is mostly a quiet day for most people with important opportunities that are easily missed.  This forecast is being written during the Moon v/c in Aquarius after Moon perfects a conjunction to Ceres (food and prosperity, and arguably supply chains).  The opportunity involves conversations and short trips revolving about issues of trust.  with Chiron four (4) degrees away from Mercury, some of these conversations may be “painful” but the healing that results can be cathartic.  (India and Pakistan: are you listening to this?  Important conversations about issues of trust!)

The message here is clear: lance the boilClear away the anger and debris now or you will find it far more challenging at some later date, likely during a Mercury retrograde (when Mercury, and others, will force the issue you are avoiding).  Get it done, now, and move forward.

With Venus and Hygeia (health and healthcare) so close, we have further confirmation that this focuses on some kind of healing: emotional for some, physical for others, and both for still yet others.

The Huber Learning Triangles confirm that this is a day about lessons learned.  Clearing the decks now may even “seem” like a bad idea.  But, later, you will find out that  you did the right thing if you took care of business today.

And, this particular configuration of Huber Learning Triangles tells us that lawsuits can emerge from wrong turns today.  Uranus (upsets and surprises) with the South Node (“how we have always done things” and the “done fix it if it ain’t broke” mentality) forms one of the two trines in the Square Key while Astraea (law, legal, and lawsuits) forms the other trine with Chiron, the Wounded Healer.  Best to “fix” things today if at all possible.

We offer the Sunout daypage without explanation beyond the summary in the previous paragraphs EXCEPT to note that Venus is sesquiquadrate Jupiter, amplifying the urgency of clearing away this matter, or matters, today.

April 26, 2017 (Julian 116) New Moon in Taurus

April 26, 2017 (Julian 116) New Moon in Taurus

First: you may wish to check our blog: “New Moons Only.”  At NMO, we collect posts that strictly relate to New Moons.  Most are specifically addressed to the NM, but a few might be “day of” forecasts.  This blog such provide a significant number of different viewpoints and forecasts that you can find one that best fits your needs and perspective.

According to Cafe Astrology, “The NEW MOON occurs on Wednesday, April 26, 2017, at 8:16 AM EDT.,” which is 7:16 AM CDT.  (Adjust according to your time zone.)  Since a number of in-depth analyses can be found at New Moons Only, we will only say that this NM provides an opportunity to examine matters of health, beauty, finances, or similar related topics.

Cafe Astrology also says this: “It’s time to “stop and smell the roses” and to become more aware of what makes us feel comfortable and secure. This is an excellent cycle under which to re-evaluate our relationship to money and possessions, as well as to discover what truly makes us happy and fulfilled.”  We agree and offer the classic rock music video below (“Grazing the the Grass”).  (If you are clicking the link some time after this week in 2017, keep in mind that Cafe Astrology updates this particular part of their site with whatever are the current forecasts.)

With a number of planets retrograde, a smart strategy is to look at old projects in these areasthat might be worth resurrecting.  Did you have a “New Years Resolution” that was unrealistic and failed?  Maybe you can adjust it, bring it into alignment with reality, and turn it into an important and successful personal change at this time.

We do reserve the right to do a “post hoc” (after the fact) NM analysis (though we prefer NOT to do those).

The following Full Moon (Moon in Scorpio) is May 10th, after Mercury turns direct but is still in the “shadow period” (until May 20th).  Each of these subsequent events are turning points where you can “tune” some project you have re-launched to make it better or more realistic or terminate it if it still is not working.

We note that Mercury (in Aries) is near Uranus (in Aries) and about to conjunct Uranus.  What does that mean?  It means that writing projects, news and journalism projects (and blogging), and other projects can benefit from a launch now.

We note a caveat: Venus (the ruler of Taurus, and therefore over this New Moon) is late in Pisces (29 Pisces) and void of course.  Some things that happen at this time may seem like “fate” and out of your control.  Others are not quite ready to launch and you will need to wait a few days (at least until Venus enters Aries on April 28th) or until after Mercury moves direct (after May 3rd).  Only you truly know what applies best in your situation, so use this guidance accordingly.

Mars is quite active at this time, forming sesquiquadrates with both Pluto and Jupiter.  Regular (and long-term) readers of Grandtrines will recognize this pattern: it is a Thor’s Hammer.  Mars is at the apex, and Mars with Pluto / Jupiter is one of the worst possible combinations.  The pattern is a dangerous one, associated with dangerous people, places, and things.  We recommend sticking with the safest possible alternatives at this time, avoiding dangerous people, places, and things (and avoid being one of those), and maintaining the best possible relations with others.

One last point: Mars perfects both sesquiquadrates tomorrow, which may be even more dangerous than today.  (We live in dangerous times, but you already knew that.  Sometimes astrology confirms what we already know.)  Consistently pick the safe option here!

A Grand Trine is present (Mercury / Uranus in Aries, North Node in Late Leo / Early Virgo, and Saturn in Sagittarius.  Some people, notable fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) and maybe air signs (Libra, Aquarius, Gemini) will have important opportunities at this time.

Lunar aspects are fairly ordinary, but you may feel a sense of urgency about 8 PM CDT and frustration about 10 PM CDT.  Whatever you are working on, finish it as early in the day as you can or defer it until tomorrow.

Outers are interesting.  Mars binovile Neptune can favor scammers OR it can give the “marks” a glimpse into what is “really going on” and how to handle it.  Mars novile Eris can, similarly, provide an insight into some aspect of “chaos” in our life and maybe how to handle it.  Pay attention; these messages are important.
