2016-04 W18: Forecasts for Week 18 of 2016

We are deep in the shadow of the upcoming Mercury Retrograde station on April 28th, and “things” are likely to become interesting for that reason alone.  (Clarissa has written a great piece on the Mercury Retrograde.  And you can find more about these periods for the rest of the year here.)  The Full Moon perfected early April 22nd, and we still feel the effects from this one.

The time is at hand to review old and forgotten projects, and to meticulously check every detail of ongoing projects.  Resurrection of old projects CAN go very well at this time, but new ones seem to falter.  Expect to do maintenance to vehicles (cars, planes, boats) and electronics (television, computer, and telephones).

If you are a student, we continue to recommend that you focus yourself entirely on your projects and preparing for upcoming final exams.

April 2016 (Mars Out)

Archive of Week 17 (W17)

Week 18 (w18)

Sunday April 24th

Moon enters Sagittarius circa 8:46 AM CDT and lunar aspects are quiet except a Sun / Moon quincunx a few minutes past 7 PM CDT.  Pallas makes TWO quadrinovile aspects today, so you can learn important lessons or gain valuable insights IF you are paying attention.  Quadrinoviles always work the same: you gain a fleeting but powerful image that is easily mistaken as a passing fancy but, in reality, is an important insight or skill that will prove its worth in your future.  Pay attention today; two or more of these will present themselves to those with sufficient awareness.

Monday April 25th

Today is dominated by a mutable T-Square, and we have encountered variants of this over the course of this Spring.  Moon in Sadge squares joins Mars [update: even astrologers are not immune to those nasty errors that the shadow of Mercury Retrograde brings] early (early enough to possibly affect late Sunday evening (and it DOES affect Mountain/Pacific time areas on Sunday)); squares Jupiter (Virgo) and Neptune (Pisces) in the morning hours (U.S.; UK/EU gets this in the afternooon); and finally Moon joins Saturn in Sadge.  Mutable signs achieve an effect by letting go of something.  This is a bit like having your assistant type a letter and (after your review) mailing it.  The letter cannot have effect until it is sent.

Since Mars and Pluto are retrograde (and Mercury in “shadow”), this might have to do with the launch, re-launch, or continuation of a project.  You will need to “send the letter” today to make things work.  “Holding on” will invariably be the wrong answer.

Tuesday April 26th

Today is a mix of a lunar trines, square, and quincunx before Noon (CDT) followed by Moon v/c shortly before Noon (CDT) until Moon enters Capricorn about 7:30 PM CDT.  Jim Shawvan characterizes this as an “Opportunity Period,” and we agree with his assessment that sticking with “existing projects” is best because of the ongoing retrograde season.

A fair number of you are “feeling” the retrograde station that happens Thursday, so if you cannot accomplish what you desire then try not to mistreat yourself.  Sometimes circumstances do not permit accomplishment.

Wednesday April 27th

Moon in Capricorn forms a very loose Grand Earth Trine with Sun (Taurus) and Jupiter (Virgo).  This is a very good day for accomplishing results, particularly anything involving money or financial results.  For sculptors, this is one of the best, if not the best, day of the year.  Earth and Water are favored (heavily), but everyone can benefit.  This is another one of those rare days where we say “use it wisely, they do not happen much.”

HOWEVER, Mercury stations retrograde tomorrow, so some of you may encounter so many glitches that you cannot get anything done.  Only you, individually, know which one really applies today.  Find what projects you CAN make forward progress on (particularly old projects that need to be re-launched) and avoid wasting your time and energy on something too “stuck” to do anything about.

Thursday April 28th

Today is the day of the Mercury Retrograde station, and that eclipses most other aspects.  This would be a good day to “take off” and assess your situation and your goals.  Write notes, draw pictures, and develop an idea of what directions you wish to go.  And know that, for the next few weeks, you may intensively re-write your plans as new discoveries (or often old forgotten ones) come to light.  Moon joins Pluto / squares Uranus adding elements of intensity and surprise to what may already be a tricky day.

Friday April 29th

Surprises that did not show up Wednesday or Thursday will likely visit you today.  Early morning hours see a lunar void as Moon moves into Aquarius but, more importantly, Venus is void until about 7:36 PM CDT when it then moves into Taurus and stays in the “too early to tell” period (aka “sign change boundary”) for a few days (until Monday).  Moon enters fourth quarter, and this is a good time to clean house and keep an eye out for lost objects “popping up.”  (One of the beneficial uses of Mercury Retrograde, or the first few days past the direct station, is the discovery of previously “lost” items.)

Saturday April 30th

The month of April ends today, and we will be facing the second “cross quarter day” of the day, typically celebrated as “May Day” (English speaking cultures) or “Cinco de Mayo” (Spanish speaking cultures).  The astrological origins are typically hidden as stories of other events are used for the explanation of the holiday, but the astrological celebrations long pre-date the newer variants.

Passover ends today, and today is both Beltane and Orthodox Easter.  The Moon in Aquarius is mostly benevolent except for an early morning quincunx and a late night square leading to a void.  Today can be a “fun day” (but glitches can occur due to the retrogrades), and if you are doing more serious work today stick to routine and focus on house cleaning.  We recommend you pick a suitable holiday to celebrate and have fun as much as possible, but the choice is still yours.

2016-04 W17: Forecasts for Week 17 of 2016

We are deep in the shadow of the upcoming Mercury Retrograde station on April 28th, and “things” are likely to become interesting for that reason alone.  (Clarissa has written a great piece on the Mercury Retrograde.  And you can find more about these periods for the rest of the year here.)  The Full Moon perfected early April 22nd, and we still feel the effects from this one.

The time is at hand to review old and forgotten projects, and to meticulously check every detail of ongoing projects.  Resurrection of old projects CAN go very well at this time, but new ones seem to falter.  Expect to do maintenance to vehicles (cars, planes, boats) and electronics (television, computer, and telephones).

If you are a student, we continue to recommend that you focus yourself entirely on your projects and preparing for upcoming final exams.

April 2016 (Mars Out)

Week 17 (W17)

Archive of Week 16 (W16)

Sunday April 17th

Mars stations retrograde today, and that trumps everything.  Mercury trine Pluto in early morning hours (overnight) takes SOME of the sting out of the mess, but chances are good that “it” is a mess.

Use today for downtime and reflection if you can.  This is a good day to take a long hard look at what you have been able to accomplish and what you have not.  Maybe the time has come to either delegate or drop stuck or failed projects that sucked the lifeblood out of you.  Write them off and stop sending time, money, and people after what cannot be accomplished.

Monday April 18th

Pluto turns retrograde and worsens the situation.  Again, time to drop failed projects so you can focus on what can be accomplished.  Venus trine Saturn brings the focus to accomplish something useful if you do not waste time or other resources on failed projects.

Tuesday April 19th

Sun enters Taurus today, and that can serve us well or harm us greatly.  From now past at least May 9th we need to review and adjust rather than push forward.

From now until (at least) after Jupiter stations direct on May 9th, you will need to review and adjust plans.  With some plans you may need to wait to move forward until after the Mercury Direct Station on May 22nd or the following New Moon on June 4th.  Still other plans will be on hold until after Mars Direct Station on June 29th or after the following New Moon on July 4th.  Only you, personally, will know which windows applies best to which project.  If you are not certain, you can test possibly forward most after these key dates.

Taurus can give any of us (but particularly the Earth signs) a powerful level of “strength” to accomplish “things,” but that strength can make a terrible mess of “things” also.  (The “poster child” for this in astrology was Adolf Hitler.  Don’t be a “Hitler.”  If you are making a MESS of “things” then STOP.)

Regarding today, besides the Sun entering Taurus, Venus squares Pluto which can be very good (or very bad) for sex and romance.  It typically does NOT bode well for financial markets, but wherever you have losers you have winners and vice versa.  Regarding the markets, the next thirty days “may not be entirely stable.” (As 3CPO said about that asteroid in Star Wars with Han Solo saying “Chewie, take the professor in the back.”)

Wednesday April 20th

This is a day where lunar aspects dominate.  You can “get things done” (in a minor way) if you pay attention to earlier warnings.  Get done what must be done and pay careful attention to details.  This is likely the best day this week, but some tasks or projects will have to be re-done.

Thursday April 21st

Moon is void most of the day (in Libra) and changes sign shortly before a full moon (Moon in Scorpio / Sun in Taurus).  “Getting things done” today is a bit difficult.  Use it for cleaning out and planning.  If your faith observes lunations, this is a particularly good one for ceremonies.

A Full Moon (Scorpio / Taurus) perfects in the early morning hours (CDT / MDT / PDT) and on Thursday in areas east of those time zones.  All of these time zones, most time zones, will feel this FM more on Thursday and Friday.

Friday April 22nd

Most people in PDT (West Coast of USA) and points east will awaken to the waning “just past full” moon.  (Pacific Rim citizens may awaken as it perfects or just before.)  It is Scorpio (Moon) / Taurus (Sun) and we all feel those.  All fixed signs will be stirred to action, and Leo / Aquarius will be particularly irritated (or worse) in some way.  Earth (Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo) and Water (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) signs will tend to benefit.  Fire (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) and Air (Libra, Aquarius, Gemini) may experience this FM as weakening their position in some way.  Fire and Air will gain SOME strength from the Venus / Uranus conjunction (in the form of insights) but everyone should expect surprises.

A bit like Wednesday, you might actually accomplish something today despite difficult astrological circumstances.  Again: Venus joins Uranus (both in Aries), so expect surprises and use the insights gained to accomplish something if that is possible (and to learn the lesson if not possible).

Saturday April 23rd

Use this as a playday.  A pair of lunar quincunxes bring problems to the early morning hours but you can move past them if you choose to do so.  Moon becomes void before 5 PM CDT, so use the evening as downtime especially “quiet time.”  Tonight is a good night to read the Torah (if you do that).  Passover begins.

 

Full Moon 2016-04-22 (Hard Rectangle)

Full Moon 2016-04-22 (Hard Rectangle)

For anyone who wants to check either upcoming or previous full moons or new moons, we offer pages that cover both categories of lunations for 2016. Here is a list of New Moons for 2016, and here is a list of Full Moons for 2016.

We note five patterns associated with this FM: Hard Rectangle, Thor’s Hammer, Hele, Kite(s), and T-Square(s).

We have been omitting T-Squares because they are still quite common when anything aspects the now dissolving Uranus / Pluto square (discussed extensively both elsewhere and on this site).  However, we now have continuing T-Squares involving Jupiter (Virgo), Saturn (Sagittarius), and Neptune (Pisces), and since this set involves other bodies and points (Nodes, Chiron, Hygeia, and Mars) we believe it is worth addressing this set of T-Squares as well.

This is a very “early” Moon-Scorpio/Sun-Taurus FM, and it is the day after Adolf Hitler’s birthday.  Entertainment figures Chyna and Prince died within the last 48 hours, and we would not be surprised to see another one (or more) go at this time.  To say the least, this energy is “tough.”

This period of time reminds us of the period circa January 8, 2016 with the death of David Bowie and Glenn Frey.  Bowie’s death was within 48 to 72 hours prior to the Capricorn New Moon of January 9, 2016.

[We may revise this blog post later to reflect other events that occur concurrent with the FM of 2016-04-22]

While I am not a numerologist (I am not certain how it works), I do note the following (for those time zones where the FM occurs April 22nd): (1) the day is a master number (22); (2) month + day is a higher order master number (44); and, depending on how you reduce numbers, year/month/day is also higher order (2016=7; + 04 -11; 11 + 22 = 33).  So, arguably, in different forms we have 22, 33, and 44.  (I am certain others will note this, and I expect those who claim numerology as their domain to have something to say about it.)

Let’s begin the astrological analysis of patterns with the Hard Rectangle, since it is the rarest of the patterns present (we believe “rare patterns” represent a sort of cosmic “punctuation mark”).

Here is the chart for the 2016-04-22 Full Moon, filtered for the Hard Rectangle:

2016-04-22 Full Moon (Hard Rectangle)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This pattern involves the Sun, Moon and Nodes (Rahu and Ketu to Vedic astrologers).  Many (most? all?) of the traditional astrologers do not like using the Nodes in aspects / patterns.  This is because the Nodes are points rather than actually bodies.  The Nodes are a function of the Earth’s orbital path relative to the Earth and are mathematically determined (as opposed to “heavenly bodies” which, at least in theory, can be observed).

So, whether or not you accept this pattern (or any other that uses the Nodes) depends on whether or not you believe the Nodes affect you.  If you do, then this is an unusually intense Full Moon (FM) because the Nodes (aka “Karma”) form a Hard Rectangle (a very energetic and often dangerous pattern) with the FM.  You can accomplish much at this time, despite the upcoming Mercury Retrograde (and other retrogrades) if you keep your focus by watching your temper.  Avoid dangerous people, places, and things (unless that is your job, and I expect that police, investigators, and intelligence agencies will be very busy at this time along with scientists who explore dangerous topics (venomous snakes, etc.)), and avoid BEING a dangerous person yourself.

Just in case you somehow did not get the previous message, a Thor’s Hammer pattern is also present.  This is a notoriously dangerous aspect, but, again, it can be channeled to get things done.  You know what to do: follow the prescription we just gave (stay focused; avoid temper / violence / explosions).

Here is the (same) chart, filtered for the Thor’s Hammer:

2016-04-22 Full Moon (Thor's Hammer)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

As you can see from this version of the chart, the North Node, Saturn, and the Sun form this pattern.  The early (“too early to tell”) Sun is at the Apex, with Saturn (“tests, trials, and tribulations) on one leg and the North Node (“hard karma”) on the other leg.  With so many retrogrades in play, we recommend that you avoid “banging your head” on projects that will not budge at this time and focus instead on the highest priority projects where you can make actual progress.  (You may also want to review your priorities at this time.)

We also have a Hele present, and it tells us contradictory messages!  One the one hand, with Sun/Moon in the “too early to tell” degrees, it tells us that there are some things (IMPORTANT things) that you do not yet know about the alliances you are about to form.  Are they organized crime?

And, if YOU are organized crime, then are they the undercover police that will finally seal your fate?

Yet, Scorpio-Taurus tells us that if you try to get out of this alliance “somewhere down the road,” then there will be hell to pay.  Be extremely careful with the new friends you choose at this time, and know that they may have far more power than you can possibly realize at this moment.

Here is the chart for the Hele:

2016-04-22 Full Moon (Hele)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Mercury / Vesta (together) is on one leg with the North Node (there it is again!), and Uranus and Saturn are on the other leg.  You will have to choose one or the other.

All of this sounds challenging, and it is.  But a ray of hope is present.  Kites (multiple, overlapping) are present in this chart, and for those that can see them (and harness them), powerful opportunities are present.

Here is the same chart, filtered for the kites:

2016-04-22 Full Moon (Kites)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Mercury and Pluto form this kite, along with the Nodes (again), so this opportunity will be present for one to three days, possibly longer as slow as Mercury is moving at this time.  Some time after the Mercury Retrograde station, it will open for a second “act” in the play.  But, if you really do want to seize this window of opportunity then you need to do it now.  The other variants will give you a chance to “clean up” things that result from Sun/Moon being in the “too early to tell” period.

Finally, we address the T-Squares.  They are a third pronouncement of the same kind of message that the Hard Rectangle and Thor’s Hammer bring: much energy, the potential for anger and violence, and great potential for accomplishment if the energy is properly funneled.

Here is the chart, filtered for the T-Squares:

2016-04-22 Full Moon (T-Square)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

More specifically, what is involved here are mutables (Planets in mutable signs), and long term planets are present in each sign that forms the T-Square (three of four mutable signs: Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces).

Virgo / Pisces focuses on the issues of work and play in general along with questions regarding attention to detail (does it help by identifying important issues or does cause harm by wasting time and other resources).  They also address healthcare, with Virgo focused on healthcare providers (nurses and physicians and similar) and Pisces focuses on the illness (and how to “heal” from it (including death)).

Sagittarius forms the apex of the T-Square (with the Malefics Mars and Saturn there, both retrograde), and we find that answers to these work/play isseus (or healthcare issues) are likely located in either higher education (Universities and similar) or the legal system.

The T-Squares (multiple, overlapping) provide guidance on where you should consider focusing your efforts at this time: work, play (or rest and recovery), health, healthcare, higher education, and the legal system.  Since we are dealing with mutables, we should be looking to “wrap up” current issues and move on to new ideas and new projects.

2016-04 W16: Forecasts for Week 16 of 2016

2016-04 W16: Forecasts for Week 16 of 2016

Spring is here.  We hope you get out in the sunshine and enjoy it when possible.  We are a month or less away from the Mercury Retrograde station on April 28th, and this is a relatively quiet time astrologically.  Overall, you can “get things done” and should use this window to do just that.  But life is short, so just remember to stop and smell the flowers along the way.

Weeks 15 and 16 are relatively quiet with primarily Mercury aspects bringing us our information and our need to change.  However, Mars is “slowing down” now and will station retrograde on April 17th followed by Pluto station retrograde on April 18th.  Mercury soon follows with station retrograde on April 28th.  “Things” grind to a halt during this window, and we have to review and reconsider our plans and efforts with little forward progress until after Jupiter stations direct on May 9th.

April 2016 (Mars Out)

Week 16 (W16)

Archive of Week 15

Sunday April 10th

As we mentioned yesterday, you are likely starting to “feel” (experience) the retrograde stations of Mars (April 17th) and Mercury (April 28th).  Little (and sometimes large) setbacks are making progress more difficult.

With Mercury perfecting a quincunx to Mars today, you feel this strongly.  For a number of people, today is unpleasant and may even turn dangerous.  Be careful.

Mercury will quincunx Saturn on Friday (similar to today), and Venus will quincunx Jupiter next Saturday followed by the Mars retrograde station on Sunday.  In simple terms: “Next Weekend Sucks.”  Fear not, the middle of the week has a few good aspects for you.

Monday April 11th

Lunar aspects predominate today with the Moon void near 2 PM CDT.  This is a much better day that yesterday though some of you may still feel the aftershocks.  Accomplish what you can in the morning and spend the afternoon and evening clearing out what did not work and resting.  This will be a busy week.

Tuesday April 12th

Mercury aspects Uranus in the early hours favoring writers and other communicators but bringing surprises to many of the rest of us.  Typically these should be benevolent surprises for most.  Venus trines Mars brings the ability to “get things done,” and this may be the best day this week for accomplishment.  Use it wisely.

Wednesday April 13th

Lunar aspects dominate again today.  The occasional problem surfaces, but you can push past it and you should do just that.  Tuesday’s grace continues today, and you will need it to achieve what must be done before the coming storm.

Thursday April 14th

The window closes after today.  You may feel so good by today that you come to believe that nothing can go wrong.  That is a foolish attitude to adopt; do not be lured into it.  Mercury trine Jupiter will help you accomplish today what you could not finish on Tuesday or Wednesday but, again, the window is closed after today.  Use today wisely.

Friday April 15th

Federal Income Taxes are due today for “natural persons” (not corporations or similar entities), Mercury perfects a quincunx to Saturn, and “things” begin to fall apart.  Do not be surprised at any lack of progress today but do congratulate yourself if you do accomplish something useful.  Please do realize that you may need to revisit your “accomplishment” later for some “tuning” or adjustment.

Once your taxes are done, take off today as much as possible.  If you have worked hard this week and done what needed to be done, then you will need the “down time.”

Saturday April 16th

Venus perfects quincunx to Jupiter, and today does not seem like much fun to many people.  Well planned family outings go awry, the plumbing springs a leak during your nap, and “things” simply do not go as planned.  Chances are good you will have unanticipated expenses.  If you did not feel tomorrow’s upcoming Mars retrograde station yet, then you will likely “feel” it today.

New Moon 2016-04-07 (Hele + Thor’s Hammer)

New Moon 2016-04-07 (Hele + Thor’s Hammer)

The New Moon is exact Apr 7 2016 6:23:36 AM CDT.  A number of T-Squares and two ongoing Grand Trines continue to be active, and we will not discuss those here.  Additionally, a Thor’s Hammer (using the North Node, a point rather than a planet although a particularly important point (especially to Vedic astrologers)) and a Hele are present.  (For more about other New Moons this year, click here.  For more on Full Moons, click here.)

As is true with all Thor’s Hammer (God’s Fist) patterns, a potential for violence is present.  Avoid dangerous or unstable people, places, and things, and avoid being one yourself.  Harness this energy to “get things done” (if you can) and note that this particular TH has a “karmic” quality because of North Node involvement.  A smart thing to do is to anonymously help someone, maybe several someones, who is is less fortunate than yourself.  Keep in mind that word “anonymous.”  That is an important piece of the puzzle.

Here is the chart for the New Moon, filtered for the Thor’s Hammer pattern:

2016-04-07 New Moon (Thor's Hammer)

A Hele is also present.  The Hele is a polarizing pattern.  That tells us that our alliances are important, and we need to choose wisely.  Here is the same NM chart, filtered for the Hele pattern:

2016-04-07 New Moon (Hele)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

In this case Pluto is square to Sun/Moon, so the New Moon is intricately involved in the pattern.  North Node is also involved (karma, again) as well as asteroid Astraea (law and legal system).  Do not be surprised to find yourself “going to war” with someone.

Here is a list of Aries New Moons, from 1950 to 2050:

aries warrior - smallThe first New Moon in Aries after Spring Equinox is a time to set your intention for the coming year, this year it’s on April 7. During the few days before, during and after the New Moon, it’s a good idea to write down, draw, paint, or imagine what you’d like the coming year to bring.

This forecast applies to you if you have Sun, Ascendant, or a cluster of planets in the sign, although for a full picture, you’ll need the whole individual horoscope. Here’s a link to calculate your birth chart if you don’t know your Ascendant or planet signs: www.astrolada.com/birthchart-calculator.

ARIES – If you’ve been hesitating about taking charge, now’s the time to take initiative, especially if your project involves you personally taking on a demanding challenge. This month is set to bring out your inner warrior, even if he or she’s been hiding.  If you’re…

2016-04 W15: Forecasts for Week 15 of 2016

2016-04 W15: Forecasts for Week 15 of 2016

Spring is here.  We hope you get out in the sunshine and enjoy it when possible.  We are a month or less away from the Mercury Retrograde station on April 28th, and this is a relatively quiet time astrologically.  Overall, you can “get things done” and should use this window to do just that.  But life is short, so just remember to stop and smell the flowers along the way.

Weeks 15 and 16 are relatively quiet with primarily Mercury aspects bringing us our information and our need to change.  However, Mars is “slowing down” now and will station retrograde on April 17th followed by Pluto station retrograde on April 18th.  Mercury soon follows with station retrograde on April 28th.  “Things” grind to a halt during this window, and we have to review and reconsider our plans and efforts with little forward progress until after Jupiter stations direct on May 9th.

April 2016 (Mars Out)

Week 15 (W15)

Archive of Week 14

Sunday April 3rd

The advantages of Friday and Saturday continue today until the Moon moves void (v/c) at 6:16 PM CDT.  Get done what you can today, and then rest this evening.

Monday April 4th

Moon moves into Pisces shortly before 1 AM CDT and remains there until 5:33 AM CDT Tuesday morning when it goes void again (in Pisces).  You may encounter glitches today, especially regarding the legal system (especially courts), universities (or other higher education), or long distance travel today.  (If none of these apply, then health could be an issue.)  This is true because the Sun (Aries) makes its annual quincunx to Jupiter (Virgo) today.  A very loose mutable T-Square is in play adding to the anxiety and aggravation as we try to make final plans in one of these areas and “things” do not work out as we wish.

If any of this planning involves activities beginning near April 17th through April 28th (and into the Mercury / Mars retrogrades), then iron out the bugs today.  More will likely crop up, but this is a very good time to eliminate as many as you can (especially if this is a vacation).

Tuesday April 5th

This is very much a “two steps forward, one step backwards” kind of day BUT, oddly, you can actually accomplish a FEW things if you persist.  Moon is void before 6 AM CDT but enters what Jim Shawvan (and Lee Lehman) calls an “opportunity period.”  Sun makes its annual trine to Saturn giving us the grit to “get things done.”  Venus enters Aries at almost exactly “high noon” but is void prior to that causing us to stumble some time before that, but we should get right back up and continue.  We WILL stumble again because Mercury is ALSO void until about 6 PM.

HOWEVER, do not start anything “new.”  Hold off on big purchases.

More than one re-do will be required because three planets are void (v/c) today and change signs (aka “sign change boundary”), but if we cannot accommplish something today then we can at least set the stage to get it done some time in the next few.  Illegitimi non carborundum.

Wednesday April 6th

Sun squares Pluto and you will either collapse from the energy expended yesterday or you will become even more determined to fight the fight and get things done.  At least to some degree, the choice is up to you.  Moon is very old, and will favor you if you choose to clear out the grime that has been holding you back.

Again: (1) do not start anything new but (2) you can get a “deal” today since buyers are favored over purchasers.  Just make certain it is something you need and will actually use lest it remain unopened in some corner waiting to be disposed of later, maybe when Mercury is retrograde.

Thursday April 7th

The New Moon occurs early today at 6:24 AM CDT and goes void at 9:56 AM CDT bringing a surprise or insight (or both) with it (Moon conjunct Uranus, both in Aries).  If you have “gotten things done” the past few days, especially with housecleaning and similar prepatory chores, then you might want to ease off today or even take the entire day off.

Friday April 8th

Moon enters Taurus in early morning hours (1:10 AM CDT) and this is a dynamite day to “get things done.”  We hope you rested yesterday, because you will need all the energy you can muster to accomplish “things” today.  Jim Shawvan recommends waiting until after Noon EDT (11 AM CDT / 9 AM PDT) to push forward, but we bet you can at least prepare prior to that.  Use today wisely; not many of these come along.

Saturday April 9th

Today is much like yesterday, except that Sun (Aries) makes its annual conjunction to Uranus bringing an unexpected surprise (or accident depending upon your personal karma).  Moon is void (v/c) in Taurus most of the day, so do expect some weirdness.  Nevertheless, you should still be able to accomplish a few things, especially if they deal with finances, certain kinds of art (especially sculpture), or certain aspects of health (especially involving “beauty”).

By today (Saturday) you will be encountering the occasional “glitch” or “gotcha” that precedes the upcoming Mars / Mercury retrograde stations (April 17th / April 28th respectively).

2016-04-06 Sun Square Pluto (Hele + Grand Trines + TH)

This repeats in two versions, each once a year.  The other one will be in October, and both will repeat in April and October for the next few years.  Sun Square Pluto is about power and power struggles.  On a personal basis, chances are good you will see conflict, and you may see violence (including the use of lethal force).  Police and intelligence agencies tend to be activated at this time, and death and taxes are issues, too.  This particular aspect has a Hele (issues regarding long term alliances), Grand Trines, and a Thor’s Hammer.  We present the chart filtered for the Hele:
