2020-04-04 SAT: Jupiter conjunct Pluto; Venus trine Saturn; Mercury semisquare Uranus

2020-04-04 SAT: Jupiter conjunct Pluto; Venus trine Saturn

These aspects have been discussed extensively elsewhere.  We will not provide an analysis at this time, but may reference this date and these aspects in future posts.  In this post, we specifically offer the DayPages: Marsout, Sunout, and Moonout, in that order.

Moonout Aspects for next week:

2020-04-03 FRI: Get things done in the morning then take the rest of the day off

2020-04-03 FRI: Get things done in the morning then take the rest of the day off

Summary

Friday morning is a window of opportunity to bring smart ideas to fruition or at least launch them with a plan to complete this phase by April 7th (Full Moon).  This morning is a “get ‘er done” kind of morning.  Afternoon should be “time off” and routine matters.  The evening is good for poetry or music or a movie but nothing serious.

Avoid signing contracts or making long term commitments today.

Marsout Daypage

We have no Marsout aspects perfecting on April 3, 2020. However, do note that the Moon is v/c starting at 1427 CDT (2:27 PM Central Time) and enters Virgo the next day (April 4th) at 1618 CDT (4:18 PM Central Time), staying in the “too early to tell” period until at least midnight or later of Saturday.  Again, complete critical tasks by noon on Friday and use the rest for “play time” or creative work (keeping in mind that re-dos or adjustments may be necessary later).

Worthy of Note: Jupiter conjunct Pluto perfects tomorrow evening, bringing great potential for both great benefit and great harm. Which will we choose?

Jupiter conjunct Pluto is a “large” aspect that is “felt” for at least a week before it perfects.

Mars also quincunxes the North Node early in the morning of April 4th, before midnight of the 3rd in time zones east of the UK, and it brings significant problems regarding our goals and the approach we have followed in attempting to achieve them. This is a “reckoning,” not a “final” reckoning, but the kind that tells you a “tune up” is due. Friday is a superb day to perform such as tuneup, but avoid anger or violence (unless that is your job, maybe an MMA fighter or similar).

Sunout Daypage

Sunout is simple and the kind of aspects most astrologers typically use in their analysis. Venus is void earlier in the morning (could be some banking system glitches or other financial related glitches) until it enters Gemini at 1210 CDT (12:10 PM Central Time) where it will be “too early to tell for three days.” A shakeout make occur in the equities market (more?).

Mercury joins Neptune at 2014 CDT (8:14 PM Central Time) producing a terrible day for signing contracts or attempting clarity of any kind. In all fairness, this can be an excellent “feel good” aspect as long as the pitfalls of the two planets are avoided, especially Neptune (disease and illness, excessive use of alcohol or other drugs, and delusional ideas, particularly with regard to religion). Some people will have a superb date night on this evening.

Sun is quadrinovile Jupiter at 2059 CDT and later Pluto at 2340 CDT. Today might be a poor day for signing contracts but it is an excellent day for planning and negotiations intended to produce an end result, a project of some kind. The Jupiter / Pluto conjunction of April 4th tells us to plan accordingly. Wins will be big but so will be the amplification of mis-steps. Again, plan accordingly.

Moonout Daypage

Lunar aspects are numerous today. The most important is Moon (Leo) trine Sun (Aries). If you have a Sagittarius planet or object then this creates a grand trine for you personally and possibly a kite, a sign of great opportunity. The kite requires an additional object in an air sign: Libra, Aquarius, or Gemini. Moon trine Sun perfects at 1428 CDT (2:28 PM, Central Time).

We see four (4) lunar aspects in the Quintile family, so this is a day with great potential for creative solutions. Moon / South Node (Dragon’s Tail) perfects at 0535 CDT, along with the requisite mirror image aspect, Moon decile North Node (Dragon’s Head). Moon quintile Venus perfects at 1005 CDT. Moon / Mercury binquintile perfects at 1144 CDT (note the numbers!), Moon biquintile Neptune perfects at 1232 CDT. This mix makes the morning a powerful window for “getting things done” for most people, especially fire (Aries, Leo, Sadge) and air (Libra, Aquarius, Gemini) signs.

Moon biseptile Uranus at 2042 CDT (8:42 PM, Central Time) also brings insights, but these have a Karmic quality. A smart thing to do is to do something selfless, maybe a small gift of some kind to a Uranian (person considered “unusual” or “gifted” but different or “mentally ill”). Doing something for someone who is “neurodiverse” is a good idea this evening.

Astrology Forecast for April 8, 2017 (Julian 098)

Hollywood is famous for writing movies with happy endings on the premise that they sell better.  While articles that satirize the process (like this one) might be funny, no one really likes them.

This fact really sucks when you are an astrologer writing a forecast and have a weekend like this one with the Sun/Uranus-Jupiter-Pluto T-Square (add Vesta: Grand Cross) causing “things” to go boom (along with President Trump, Putin, and sundry Middle Eastern Players).  Retrograde Venus (Pisces) squares Retrograde Saturn and it all looks rather bleak.  We wrote about it yesterday, and Clarissa (Viva Combusta) has detailed the nuances in an excellent piece, quite popular on our main blog (Grand Trines).  In a short phrase: it ain’t over yet.

What possible “happy ending” can you write with a mess like that?

Astro-Butterfly has a nice piece about this month, and we recommend it if you like to at least attempt to plan ahead.

Lunar aspects are sundry, and a mix like that is always tricky to interpret.  But we think the Moon Sesquiquadrate Mercury near Noon CDT is the most important.  To use a horrific old Southern saying (arguably “Southern Gothic“), we will all be “running around like a chicken with its head cut off.”

Shakespeare elegantly titled a play: “Much Ado about Nothing.”  (Let us be clear: the Sarin gas in Syria and missles that followed are a big thing; but chances are good that your frantic chase today is NOT despite how bad it may currently look.)

Keep in mind that you do have at least SOME choice in this matter!  (So, how to proceed?)

Moon in Virgo is great for scrubbing and cleaning, so please do use the energy that way instead of a frantic chase after something you simple cannot achieve at this time, if ever.  Windows to “get it done,” whatever “it” is, will come again next week or sometime in May after Mercury moves direct.  Postpone “it” until then and focus on what you can actually achieve to get the most out of this day.  This day CAN productive and useful (but probably NOT the best of “party days” for most people).

Outers are very nearly silent EXCEPT for the curious aspect of a perfection of Saturn BiQuintile Ceres.  This indicates a very odd kind of creativity that is ENTIRELY focused on practical matters such as reorganizing your food pantry or something similar.  Curiously, such a reorganization of basic elements of prosperity such as our pantry or our kitchen on this date can produce a MAJOR cascade of helpful events.  Ditto for review of the home budget.

The Full Moon cometh on April 10th, only two days away.  Best to be a seller now and a buyer then.  And we almost never recommend scrubbing and cleaning during a waxing moon, but today is a noteworthy exception.

And, stay away from Choctaw Ridge.
