2020-04-12 : Moon void of course most of the day then enters Capricorn; Mercury squares the Nodes

Summary for April 12, 2020

The key take-away for today is this: much of the day is spent with Moon void-of-course in Sagittarius. Even so, outers (planets, asteroids, “calculated points”) are active and have messages for us. Maybe the most important one is that Mercury squares the nodes, only a few days after leaving Pisces (NOT a good position for transiting Mercury although it can produce poets and musicians in a natal chart).
Mercury squaring the nodes tells us of a shift, a “karmic” shift, and we need pay close attention to the messages that come to us today. In the end, some information may be missing, and projects might need to be redone, but the messages are important nevertheless. Short trips and errands, and the events that happen on them, may also reveal important information to us. Keep your eyes open.

Marsout

Early morning hours (@ 0451 CDT), before Moon moves v/c, finds Pallas (and asteroid) trine Sedna (an outer planet object whose status is in question but probably is a dwarf planet). Pallas has an orbital period of 4.62 Earth years while Sedna has one of over 11,000 years. This trine is not particularly rare but also not particularly common, with two trines occurring within each 4.62 year orbit.
Pallas Athena is a warrior goddess, similar to Mars in some ways but reputed in mythology to have sprang fully formed, with armor, from her father’s head. (Zeus, also known as Jupiter, was her father.)
So, what does this mean? Sedna is a sea goddess, and Pallas a warrior goddess. No doubt they do not give up their secrets easily, but we think something important involving shipping and the security of ocean-going vessels will occur today.


Mars biquintiles the North Node shortly after (0657 CDT, 6:57 am) the Moon / Sun trine, and the beginning of the void. What does that mean? We are not certain, but we think that, for certain people, a break-through idea might present itself regarding an important problem. Action is necessary, keeping in mind that it might have to be re-done or tuned later. Proceeding carefully, take action despite the void.
Pallas trines Hygeia, (11:05 am CDT) and issues of healthcare and trust come to the forefront. My guess is that this might involve protective gear (aka “PPE”) and healthcare providers needing to be able to trust the supply chains and non-clinical managers who should be providing the protective gear.
Uranus undeciile Vesta brings a subtle upset to certain traditionalists who MIGHT can learn a lesson from the event, IF they are paying attention.
AFTER the Moon moves into Captricon, Vesta sextiles Black Moon Lillith. Per Darkstar Astrology, the “Dark Goddess archetype as a whole is associated with sex, death, obsession, addiction, transformation, resurrection, magic, the occult and the taboo.” While Vesta is primarily concerned with traditions, it also represents prostitution (or sexual favors or ?). With these two in sextile, all bets are off, but be certain that this is another hot night for “romance” for certain people.

Sunout

This day has a number of undecile family aspects in it; we will not interpret those. Other aspects were previously discussed in Marsout leaving: (1) Mercury square the Nodes and (2) Sun semisquare Vesta.

We mentioned Mercury square the Nodes previously, and it is likely the most important aspect of the day, the “mover” that activates all the other aspects.
Sun semisquare Vesta implies that certain attributes of the Lilith / Vesta sextile might have a coercive quality to it, or, at best, a sense of urgency, as in “quick, they’ll be back soon!” Alternatively, the kids might wake up at a rather inconvenient time.

Moonout + SunMoon

These are complicated and numerous; we will leave the interpretation for another. The Sun / Moon trine is a pleasant way to start the void.

Astrology Forecast for April 9, 2017 (Julian 099)

Astrology Forecast for April 9, 2017 (Julian 099)

Mercury makes the Retrograde Station now, and you already know that if you read any of our blogs or astrology blogs in general.  We will not make any attempt to add to that specifically.

But today is Julian Day 99, and I do wonder what the numer.ologists have to say about that!

Moon is v/c from about 3 AM CDT until about 7:30 AM CDT moving then from Virgo into Libra.  Today becomes more about relationships and the communications problems (Mercury) that emerge today.  Tara Greene seems to really like this weekend, an opinion that differs from almost all other prognosticators.  I actually think that this particular Sunday is mixed.  Setbacks will occur (if not already), but I see certain potentials as well.

Moon has oppositions, a square, and a quincunx, so the minor events today have a tendency to annoy us but that CAN be a motive to make a best effort to follow correct action.  You, yourself, must decide what that means in your situation.

Moon sesquiquadrate Mars may bring a late night sense of urgency.  Juno (wives, sisters, and especially “trust issues”) also forms a sesquiquadrate with the North Node and we must face karmic implications regarding who we do, or do not, trust.  An examination of relationships is the top priority today.

Mars BiQuintiles Saturn and all best are off when it comes to powerful insights and maybe genius level ideas about taking strong action regarding a practical problem.  (I hope this does not mean an elevation of the situation in Syria, but it could.)

We also feel the Full Moon building more fully at this time.  While it does perfect just an hour past midnight on April 11th, it is really in full force today.  Relationships and justice are at the forefront.  Those who plan too much will need to take proper action and eliminate paralysis by analysis.  Those who tend to take action without much thought will need to stop and do some planning.  You probably know which of those two opposite categories contain your tendencies, so adjust accordingly.

One more thing: if you love someone, today is a good day to let them know that.  And I do not mean strictly spouses or similar, I mean parents and children and anyone else that really matters.  Do that today.

Be careful out there!
