The Moon's Rise as a Fall

Moon Messages Monday April 29—This week’s rise is actually a fall. You benefit by taking it easy and find a little bit of luck by taking this approach. The moon is waning and you’re able to construct some stability here. 

Aries: For the past week or so, you’ve been a driving force in matters of love, sweet love. But finding stability in love is difficult to achieve when you’re on an aggressive hunt, so loosen up a bit.

Taurus: You do well this week when you let a few friends go who have outlived their usefulness.

Gemini: You’re feeling a little unclear about the direction of your career but a headstrong, head smart friend will help you sort out the matter. 

Cancer: It’s a good day for you Cancer especially if you’ve had any legal proceedings. They resolve favorably. 

Leo: There’s a lover in a faraway land who has designs on you, but I’d pass on this one. 

Virgo: Your partner is in a dreamier state of mind than usual but this helps free you up so enjoy it a bit.

Libra: You have a fated encounter today with a partner who has the hots for you. There’s no stopping it so have fun and let him be on the pursuit. 

Scorpio: Your partner is emphasized today, but stay grounded in yourself lest you lose your footing. 

Sagittarius: Your body, heart, and mind will be on fire this week but this might pull you away from a partner who is equally aggressive. Make sure to cool it.

Capricorn: You’re serious this week, but there is an optimistic underpinning to what you’re doing. Bring this into the light and see great gains. 

Aquarius: You make gains this week financially by not being so scientific about your approach to money.

Pisces: You’ll be reviewing the trajectory of your career in the coming weeks. There will be some tension around this but it will ultimately manifest into something good.

Mourning the Seeds Who Won't Make It



Moon Messages Week of April 9, 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

The Goddess

Opposite God


What is the Moon’s Message to You?

That is the Will and Purpose of This Column

Published Every Monday, which means Moon Day

You’ve experienced the beginnings of spring with its violent burst towards brighter days, but with every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. The moon wanes back towards her invisible state, a recapitulation in the declamatory, initiating sign of Aries, but asks that you, as with every moon cycle, discard what has outlived its time here and mourn the seeds who won’t succeed. You are asked to look back as you envision the future that is not quite upon you.

Aries, Born 3/21-4/19:  The moon is shifting through your house of friends, hopes, and wishes, and the house of dreams and self-undoing. Take some time to open up amongst your various social networks this week, repairing your ship, as you can’t always be firing away at the helm.

Taurus, Born 4/20-5/20: What isn’t working for you in your career? The answer to that question is the key to a new, earthly flowering in your public status you never dreamed possible.

Gemini, Born 5/21-6/20: The heavens are asking you to think a bit more seriously about your future, as the past has led you to this point. Looking back will give you a clue to the type of career direction you want to achieve down the road.

Cancer, Born 6/21-7/22: Some dark, carnal feelings about your social life may bubble up this week. Allow yourself to feel these emotions, as you are the most feeling sign, and let them guide you to some mystical new directions amongst a variety of friends and social networks.

Leo, Born 7/23-8/22: Your karmic future looks golden, as you are the royal sign of the zodiac, but you must take care to nurture yourself, your social networks, and your partnerships or you’ll find yourself a despot alone.

Virgo, Born 8/23-9/22: Work can kill you, dear Virgo, so take a hard look at what hasn’t worked for you in the past and make sure not to repeat it in the future. If you reach out and ask for help, you shall receive instead of giving.

Libra, Born 9/23-10/22: Though you’re used to the gifts coming to weigh upon your scales, what hasn’t worked in your romantic life in the past? Though you are an air sign, there is energy to release the past and light your love life on fire this week, but only if you step down from your judge’s perch.

Scorpio, Born 10/23-11/21: You may be feeling a lack of security this week, especially with regard to your home and family life. You do best to honor these past feelings and allow them to lovingly propel you into the future.

Sagittarius, Born 11/22-12/21: Though you are the knowledgeable believer of the zodiac, you may be reconsidering this week how your beliefs have misfired in the past, especially with regard to communicating amongst others. No matter, you’ll be able to start fresh with the new moon later in the week and with Mercury moving out of retrograde next week as well.

Capricorn, Born 12/22-1/19: Some past issues with money might come up this week. You may have to turn to siblings and family, but if you’re honest with what’s gone wrong, they will help.

Aquarius, Born 1/20-2/18: It’s about you, the past, and the future this week. How can you combine different states of time? Leave it to you, Aquarius, to envision a totally new paradigm, but only if you feel it into existence. 

Pisces, Born 2/19-3/20: You have to be careful, Pisces, that the past doesn’t undo you this week. Make sure to dot all the I’s and cross all the t’s, especially those that you may have missed, and you’ll make it through.
