Welcome To Moon Messages For Thursday 4/25

Moon Messages Thursday 4/25—As I mentioned before, this week has been on fire but advantageous manifestation of this energy comes when you dowse the fire with a little bit of water. While you’re charging ahead, breaking new ground, your stability is disrupted. How can you handle this energy? Read on below for your individual sign.

Aries: You’re ramming ahead in romance, but it’s communication that has you dancing with your love.

Taurus: This month brings you a surprise that shakes you to the core upending your perception of self. This will require adjustment in the coming weeks.

Gemini: Your mind has been on fire for the past month even more than usual. Make sure to douse this energy with some water or you will be overtaken by a metaphorical earthquake.

Leo: You yourself find good fortune, especially in romance. Enjoy it.

Virgo: You have a great chance to communicate what it is you’re dreaming about in your career but not without a little tension. Tension is the energy that builds a solid foundation for the future, so don’t be afraid to go there.

Libra: A partner is being aggressive in matters of love, but you do best to apply your balanced approach.

Scorpio: You continue to make financial gains, but make sure you factor in how you’ll handle surprises that have popped up.

Sagittarius: You’ve been expanding this year, more so than any time in the past decade, but have experienced unexpected bumps in the road. That’s ok. Stay the course.

Capricorn: You have a deep need to maintain your current, measured course, but the heavens are demanding something different. Transformation is necessary in life, and the structures that are toppling now will help you build the structures that are truly sustainable down the road.

Aquarius: The surprises at home have come to a head this week; you do best to accept these surprises and expand upon them, even if it doesn’t fit your plan.

Pisces: You make gains by asserting yourself in love, even if it’s a bit debilitating in the process.

Welcome To Moon Messages For Thursday April 4

Thursday April 4—As it’s Jupiter’s day and things are bursting into spring, you’re on fire. The only thing that’s tense about this is your mind that is still scattered from Mercury Retrograde and fear of change. But how and where can you ride the fire?

Aries: Well, you yourself are on fire so there’s no stopping you even if I told you to.

Taurus: Though you like to stay situated where you are, and for good reason, you have good fortune when you rush to a retreat be it a spiritual getaway or much needed meditation.

Gemini: You’re being driven crazy but holding too many ideas at once, so get outside yourself and connect with friends.

Cancer: This is the day to take some risks in your career.

Leo: Expand your horizons today, either by traveling or daydreaming about a vacation.

Virgo: Instead of overthinking the contracts you have set up with your partners, assert yourself and demand what is rightfully yours.

Libra: Relationships and partnerships are on fire, but you do best when you let go and let things flow from your end.

Scorpio: Usually I don’t recommend bringing out your sting, Scorpion, but some co-workers have it coming. Work your magic from behind the scenes to regulate to take care of what needs to happen.

Sagittarius: You’re also on fire, but in the area of romance. Let love burn.

Capricorn: You like the stability of all things earthy, but you’re feeling the urge to take a hammer to your home and make some changes. Do it.

Aquarius: You base driving life force is to be much more scientific and detached. But today let the fire come off your tongue and assert yourself.

Pisces: You make gains when you get out of your fluid nature and charge ahead on land.


Trumpeting Spirit

Son Trumpeting

Son Trumpeting

My father recently entered the magnanimous Philosopher King phase of his life. He is trumpeting his spirit and I had also trumpeted for many years in the medium of classical trumpet playing. What is a son but an extension of the father? Below is a brief meditation he wrote.

As a young boy I was interested in music featuring the trumpet and the shofar. I remember going to High Holiday Services looking forward to hearing the Shofar Blasts. Rabbi Kaplan always visited the youth service looking for volunteers to blow the Shofar. I always raised my hand. I wanted to blow the Shofar at the High Holiday Service, but it was a yearning I kept to myself. Coincidentally

I received an email from Rabbi Gerber saying he had heard I could blow the Shofar and our synagogue was in need this year. I had studied the trumpet and still possessed a Shofar my parents purchased when they had visited Israel. While I was interested, playing the Shofar at home and playing the Shofar on our holiest day in front of fellow congregants was a wholly different matter. I asked the Rabbi if we could meet for an audition and proceeded to tell him the background of my playing. I told him I was about to retire partly due to a successful heart operation that had me looking at the miracle of life differently. I had gone through a personal process of discovering my priorities—family, health, faith—and was trying to keep them in a positive perspective. Retiring is a scary phase in one’s life. I was also looking for a new purpose when the email from Rabbi Gerber came.

So on the second day of Rosh Hashanah I stood with our congregation and proudly blew the Shofar. My heart raced and I was extremely nervous. It felt like when I was called to the Torah in the same Synagogue in September 1969, 49 years ago. I was able to take my new found purpose and perform this time honored ritual so important to our faith. 

My brother in law Rabbi Novoseller of Beth Tovim then asked if I could play the final Shofar blast at Neilah where my family celebrates break the fast, and so I did. 

I did not realize the importance of the Shofar, until so many people came up to me saying that they thoroughly enjoyed the sound of my playing. I felt honored.

After the High Holidays I then traveled to Munich where my wife Leslie and I toured the The Central Synagogue and Jewish Museum. A part of the museum featured a Shofar to teach the Jewish Rituals. I asked our German guide if I could blow the Shofar and he immediately said “please do.” The sounds echoed through the Museum, and I can now say I am an international Shofar player.

As I finish my career I am starting to re-define my purpose which now includes playing the Shofar.

 

The Best Planetary Shift That's Happened as of Late

One of the most watched events in astrology is when a planet, especially a planet that appears to move more slowly, shifts into a new sign. Jupiter spends about a year in each sign. When a planet moves into a new sign you can look for some kind of shift, event, or change. Jupiter is the greatest of all benefics, expanding anything he touches generally bringing luck and good will. Jupiter embodies philosophy, religion, belief, spirituality, and higher learning so with Jupiter moving into his home sign of Sagittarius, look out for a big shift for the better. Astrology is only as good as what you do with it as suggested through the psychological underpinnings of the great body of work of Alan Leo. Incidentally he was friends with the composer Gustav Holst who wrote the famous piece The Planets one of the most famous movements being his Jupiter movement. Also Mozart wrote a Jupiter movement. Both pieces are upbeat, optimistic, and especially with the Holst, spiritual. Look below to see how you can think about benefitting from Jupiter this next year or so, but don’t think too much. Jupiter does not like to think; he believes.  

Aries: Expect a shift for the better with higher learning, travel, and spirituality.

Taurus:Look for an expansive succession of deeply regenerative sexual experiences and also get lucky in the area of your financial contracts with others.

Gemini: Expand in your area of partnerships, relationships, and how you intersect with the public. 

Cancer: Watch your health and daily working conditions improve this year.

Leo: You ride high on your creative, erotic, and romantic spirit. 

Virgo: Things get better for you on the home front.

Libra: You’re able to expand in the area of communications and your relationship with your siblings gets a boost.

Scorpio: You get a boost in your finances this year.

Sagittarius: You yourself are on fire so strut your stuff. 

Capricorn: You retreat to a monastic space this year and expand there.

Aquarius: You expand through your friends and social networks this year. 

Pisces: Your career jumps this year.
