2020-04-18 and 2020-04-19 Semisquares; Moon Conjunct Neptune; Sun moves into Taurus; Kite and Square Key continue

Summary

The Piscean Moon dampens the frustrations of the moment reminding us to take time off.  We do feel some urgency regarding certain matters, and tending to them is important, but with the Sun void until it moves into Taurus we may not be able to accomplish all of the things we desire.

The Kite and Square Key continue from yesterday, April 17th.  This means we do have opportunities (Kite) and, paradoxically, should seize certain ones.  Missteps become lessons.  Learn the lesson (Square Key) and do something different next time if that is possible.

Somewhere in here, if it is possible, have a little fun this weekend.

We include maps at the end of this post.

Daypages (Sunout only)

We present Sunout pages (only) for April 18th and April 19th because they cover most of what is important.  The lunar conjunction to Neptune early Sunday morning is covered later.

Interpretations

We have semisquares coming and going over the course of the weekend.  They nudge us into action while the Piscean Moon wants to play.  You have to decide for yourself what course of action is best, likely a carefully chosen balanced mix of the two.

April 18th: Mercury sextile Venus yields pleasant communications.  If this is “date night” for some then late night conversations are pleasant and hopeful.  Enjoy the moment.  Mars trine Hegeia affects all of us, giving us even stronger motives to take care of matters that involve health and healthcare.  Some disputes COULD break out related to this, but most people will work together to “get things done.”  Mercury BiNovile the North Node (and now out of Pisces) gives us an insight on how we might solve a nagging problem, maybe even an important one.

April 19th For others, worker bees up late, Mercury quintile Saturn yields “Aha!” moments about how to do things better.  Latch onto that, but know that you might adjust early next week after Sun has moved into Taurus and out of the “too early to tell” period.  Sun forms a Novile before moving into Taurus, giving us a good idea but it will need a little tuning.  Stick with it, adjust it, and chances are good that you will like the results.

Moon conjunct Neptune

We present the Moon conjunct Neptune chart, NOT a major chart but a milestone along the way this weekend.  We have filtered it for the Kite mentioned in our April 17th post (this past Friday).

Nothing life or death in this chart unless you do something foolish like driving or operating heavy equipment or power tools under the influence of alcohol or drugs.  PLEASE use this window for “down time,” best for sleep and dreams.  You will like yourself better that way, and many of us need the rest.

An opportunity is hidden here, the same one we mentioned Friday about talking things out with someone important to you and solving whatever problems you can together.  But the window is closing.  By early next week, “things” will be different.

April 20, 2017 (Julian 110)

April 20, 2017 (Julian 110)

Pluto stations retrograde today, and that is the headline news.  Matters involving death, taxes, investigations, homicides, and power structures bear deeper scrutiny at this time.  Certain secrets come to light.  Aries / Cancer / Libra / Capricorn (Cardinal Signs) are affected the most, but so are Taurus and Virgo.  Others tend to be bystanders or have reduced roles (unless you have a number of Cardinal planets in your natal chart).

Sun is in Taurus, Moon is in Aquarius (and Last Quarter), and (as we mentioned) Pluto stations retrograde today.  Mercury joins the Sun about 1 AM CDT.  Moon perfects semi-squares to Chiron and Venus (both in Pisces) in the early morning hours and some of us have a sense of urgency involving health, beauty, or maybe finances.  This is a great day for “home cleanup” if that is an option for you; some will find important misplaced items (or ideas about misused resources that need to be re-allocated(.  Moon also perfects a semi-square to Jupiter at this time, amplifying this sense of urgency.  (For some this may involving educational matters.)

Retrograde Mercury is void since about 1 AM CDT until it moves into Aries shortly before 1 PM CDT.  One misplaced item might be found but another lost.  It all seems to madness.

However, near 2 PM CDT Moon (Aquarius) trines Jupiter (Libra) and most people gain something of benefit, particularly air and fire signs.  This can be a good time to apply for a job or, alternatively, to obtain a good deal on an important purchase.

Jupiter binoviles Vesta, and some of us have important insights involving the traditions of home and family.
