May 11, 2017 (Julian 131) Void Moon in Scorpio enters Sadge + Mars Square Neptune + Mercury trine Saturn

Void since perfection of the Full Moon yesterday, Moon continues void this morning in Scorpio until it enters Sagittarius at almost exactly Noon CDT.  Moon quincunx Uranus (Aries) then Mercury (Aries) near sunrise (CDT) leads to mistakes and miscalculations just in time for rush hour.  Be extra careful, and make absolutely certain that you do not follow too closely.  A lunar trine to Chiron about 7:30 AM CDT brings issues of healthcare, education, mentors or some mix all to the surface.  Recognize them but do not take action until at least the void is over and preferably on another day.

Why avoid action today?  Mars squares Neptune, and nothing is as it seems.  Snake oil salesmen and con-artists prosper, and unless you are one of those, chances are good you will not.  Mercury trines Saturn which leads people to check every detail, dot every “i,” and cross every “t.”  Even the snake oil salesmen may not do so well.  Maybe we should say “salesperson” because chances are the person likely to blindside you will not meet with your expectations.

Any upsides for today?  Plenty.  First, creatives continue to prosper.  This day tends to favor photographers, videographers, and other visual artists more than yesterday.  Work done this morning may require re-dos but should be done anyway.  Often the genius of a work is found in a re-do or edit.  Today is that kind of day.

Exactly the same advice applies to anyone who examines details for a living.  But if you are proofreading in the morning, make certain you give it a second look in the afternoon or evening.  Something will leap out at that time that makes a difference, maybe a pivotal change.

Moon is waning, so removal of the unnecessary leads to prosperity.  Sun is in Taurus, so sculptors prosper.  Just do not work in stone or marble this morning; model it in clay in the morning then do the final work in stone later today.

April 24, 2017 (Julian 114)

Today has a clear cut message: pay attention to details.  Retrograde Mercury tells us that as it trines Retrograde Saturn.  Despite the fact that Saturn is a malefic, this is a favorable aspect most of the time for most people IF you are willing to heed the message and do the work.  Both are in fire signs, so fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) are affected most followed by air signs (Libra, Aquarius, and Gemini).  For some people, they will find lost ojects, and this will be an important turn of events.  Everybody, regardless of sign, can benefit by “taking care of business” today.

Outers are relatively quiet again, with   Saturn quincunx Vesta is the loudest voice of the group, and that signals a conflict or misunderstanding between one side that is related to religion, higher education, or law and the other side which is focused on family traditions.  Neither side can “win” here, so walk away from any disputes of the sort.
