Moon Messages Week of April 2, 2018
Most astrology focuses on the Sun—Your Will and Purpose
But what about the Moon?
The Moon is the Embodiment of Communication, Emotion, and Spirit
What is the Moon’s Message to You?
That is the Will and Purpose of This Column
Published Every Monday, which means Moon Day
Spring has arrived—the most powerful time of the year. As the sun sheds approximately equal light to darkness upon the earth, so do seeds awaken and burst through the soil. It is absolutely necessary that you strap yourself in for the ride, metal support frames around a beanstalk that is shooting up from the ground. Planetary energies of action, ambition, and structure are exactly conjoined, and the moon, though difficultly in the sign of Scorpio, gives wisdom that you must release all that is not necessary so you may launch your journey to the mountaintop.
Aries, Born 3/21-4/19: You are the most blessed with the driving energy embodied by early spring. However, fire isn’t the only element in your arsenal, and the heavens ask that you look to the beauty of relating on earth’s time rather than fire roiling across a pile of dry wood.
Taurus, Born 4/20-5/20: Venus, planet of beauty, love, and money, has just entered your sign, a welcome turn of events. However, don’t rest on your laurels, and put all of your gifts to work for the sake of your own ambition and success.
Gemini, Born 5/21-6/20: Though you excel in the airy, communicative, flighty realms, honor your more serious side this week, especially as it relates to work, relationships, and other people’s affairs in general.
Cancer, Born 6/21-7/22: This may be an especially emotional week for you; however, value the forward seeking, dramatic motion that is sometimes contrary to your nature and you’ll pull through.
Leo, Born 7/23-8/22: Your soul wants to surge ahead but you can’t get anywhere without your home base. Home is where your heart is, so place your Eros with home, romance, and even work that you love.
Virgo, Born 8/23-9/22: You may just be the most industrious sign of the zodiac—but you deserve to love the work you do. Use the moon’s journey through dark Scorpio in your sector of communication to dispense with what isn’t working for you, and step into sustainable structure you’ve desired for so long.
Libra, Born 9/23-10/22: One of the highest, wisest signs, it’s often difficult for you because you have so many different, wonderful things, and thoughts, that come before you. The heavens are asking you to use your scales and make some critical judgments about that which you truly value, tipping your scales one way or another.
Scorpio, Born 10/23-11/21: This is an intense week for you, as the moon moves through your sign. However, as the most feeling, intense sign of the zodiac, you gain much wisdom through the moon’s emotional suggestions. Stand tall through the waves, and you win.
Sagittarius, Born 11/22-12/21: Your default mode is to charge ahead, the thighs of the centaur, but if you stop, rest, and allow your emotions to guide you, mysteriously, you’ll get to where it is you really want to go.
Capricorn, Born 12/22-1/19: This is a great time for you, with the planets aligning beautifully in your sign. However, you must heed to your home base, as it can’t always be about your ambition and success. Without a home, you are lost.
Aquarius, Born 1/20-2/18: This week is about making some much needed changes in your career and networks. Listen to your emotions, something that does not come naturally to you, and you will make the necessary adjustments.
Pisces, Born 2/19-3/20: You are the most beautifully spiritual of all the signs, but that doesn’t always mean you don’t encounter darkness. Much of your knowledge springs from mystery, so let that be your guide when you travel to other places, real or imaginary.
