Welcome To Moon Message For Monday April 1

image3.png

Monday April 1— What a wonderful way to start the week. Mercury had gone direct i.e. is no longer retrograde. While you’ll still be mentally moving through murky waters, you have good fortune when you feel the sweetness of the future. This is belief stuff, and they sky gives this to you. As it’s April Fool’s Day, have a bit of fun playing the trickster, and be pleasantly surprised about where you may end up down the road. Capricorn, you make gains here as long as you allow change to occur in your sometimes conservative ways, and Aquarius you feel natural envisioning the future as it’s your natural mode. Pisces you need to be a little more scientific and rational about your future but you’re feeling the most spiritual that you have in a long time which is a good place to be; you can combine science and spirituality. Aries though you’re a very self-oriented sign, you make gains with friends and social networks, and Taurus, you do well to feel what kind of future you want for your career. Gemini you might be tempted to make travel plans, but I’d wait on that for a couple of months. Cancer you’re advised to think about how you might restructure some contacts down the road, and Leo you do best to envision what kind of future partnerships will benefit you. Virgo you naturally fret over the minutiae of your daily life but getting your head around where you want to be rather than where you are now is the way to go. Libra, you have ample energy available to create the future you want, and Scorpio, you’re envisioning how you want your home life to be. Sagittarius you’re doing great this year, and you can do even better by doubling down on the plans you have for the future.

This week, your recent drive towards the future that began abruptly in Mid-May comes to a halt. Though you believe in your vision of the future, a good, a priori future, that deserves to come into being, the heavens, as always, have something else in mind. The moon, waxing full and galloping ahead, will pass through the heart of the scorpion, Antares. This is the fixed star known for sudden, war-induced rises but also sudden falls. The great, optimistic planet Jupiter has been lending his hand to this spirit, expanding through the dark, intuitive waters of the sign Scorpio, and you do best, although not easily, to combine this ethos with your own self-expression. Hold on during this time, and protect yourself. It’s not so much about forcing your vision unto the cosmos. Instead dredge up the things that have been languishing in the dark as you assert yourself, rather than hastily demanding your worthy and considerable vision.   

Aries, Born 3/21-4/19: In the coming weeks, you’ll reevaluate the push you were forced to make towards the future that occurred this past May. Disruption is never easy, but if you can swing it, you’ll make great gains.

Taurus, Born 4/20-5/20: You’re quite dramatic on the home front, with commensurate optimism to boot. Just make sure you take care to communicate effectively, as family is about conveying nurturance and protection.

Gemini, Born 5/21-6/20: The sun has just moved into your money sector, and while this brings power to your pocketbook, it will require an adjustment and balancing of your optimism, especially around the partnerships that flow from this change.

Cancer, Born 6/21-7/22:Happy birthday! While you’re comfortable reveling in yourself this month, your true gains can be made by getting out and about, releasing the dramatist within.

Leo, Born 7/23-8/22: You’re positively brimming with your usual, gallant antics, but beware, you have to hold on and anchor yourself while you’re riding high as the star of the show. 

Virgo, Born 8/23-9/22: You may be having urges to express yourself, a hidden part of who you are, but the gains are to be made by how your relate this feeling of expression to others, connecting emotionally which can be a weakness of yours. 

Libra, Born 9/23-10/22: You have a real opportunity to pioneer and flower a new course for yourself, but you must believe. It will take you a bit to wrap your feelings around this and get over past pain, but once you do, there is not stopping you. 

Scorpio, Born 10/23-11/21: This year has been one of expansion for you, but as of late, you do best to let your dreams do the driving, not your carnal, aggressive impulses. The better angels of yourself with guide you in the direction you really want to go. 

Sagittarius, Born 11/22-12/21: You’re positively buoyant this week, but make sure to hold on as you gallop ahead. Your home base, your anchor, requires that you do as much.

Capricorn, Born 12/22-1/19: It’s been a slow go for you for some time, with a push and pull between erecting the structures you hold dear while seeing them breaking down. Underneath it all is hidden optimism and belief, but you must allow these feelings to come into the light, and then the structures you work so hard to put in place will illuminate. 

Aquarius, Born 1/20-2/18:You are so engaged with the future, and not repeating past failures, that you might be unaware of some good, old-school, down-to-earth work that needs to be done. What are the things that aren’t glamourous but that need tending to? This is your true path forward. 

Pisces, Born 2/19-3/20: Your sign naturally tends toward sweet, colorful introversion, but as far as your public persona, bluntness can take you far if you open up to pressing ahead.

The Sun's Cycles, and Opting for the Moon

Published Every Monday, which means Moon Day

As I wrote in last week’s Moon Messages column, the drive is towards the future, the future so desperately wanted. But is desire the only path towards what your soul craves? The Buddhists would say no, as it is commonly held that desire is the nature of suffering. I recently consulted for a non-profit executive who lamented the state of her employees’ morale, working hard day in and day out, year to year, pushed to exhaustion. I suggested she consider a different work cycle, that of the moon. The daily and yearly cycle is of the sun, the seasons and the day. But the moon cycle is of the month, waxing and waning. Great gains can be made on this more gradual, incremental cycle, and the heavens at this very moment suggest as much. The moon is waning in earthly Taurus, where it loves to be, building, flowering, and growing; but a waning moon seeks to dispense with what must go, dead vegetation that provides the seeds of renewal, so that new vegetation might spring forth.  Release what must go and you will find a childlike wonderment in a new start, unearthing a new, loving, homely base where you can feel your way into the future, as opposed to adjudicating the daily battles of the day and the wars of the year. 

Interpreted lunations and aspects: Mars conjoined south node squares waning, exalted moon in Taurus (moon conjoined Uranus) that moves through Gemini and waxes into Cancer. 

Aries, Born 3/21-4/19: You may be experiencing some new growing pains, as you are stepping towards an electrified and awakened state. Slow and steady wins the race, though, even if your visions dominate your spirit.

Taurus, Born 4/20-5/20: There’s disruptive energy and unavoidable questions around your self, will, and purpose. Know that these events will grow into a new, awakened self even if it’s uncomfortable at the moment.   

Gemini, Born 5/21-6/20: There is a massive amount of energy surrounding your thoughts and communication, but you must allow for a slower growth, a roast in the oven that takes time. This is critical because if you move too quickly, you will undo yourself. 

Cancer, Born 6/21-7/22:. This week is a homecoming of sorts, even if there’s a bit of disruption around your friends and social networks. Know that it’s all for the better, and that you will find a quiet homecoming where you breathe a sigh of relief, at home alone. 

Leo, Born 7/23-8/22: You’ve recently experienced disruption in your career, but it’s not one event that makes or breaks you. If you keep tending to your proverbial garden, you find a solid home in your career, even if it is hidden from you at this moment. 

Virgo, Born 8/23-9/22: As Virgo, you’re more in the air that your earthly sisters, Taurus and Capricorn, Mercury being the embodiment of your energy. Get down in the earth this week to resurface as your perfection-seeking, purifying self, and see great long term gains in travel and knowledge. 

Libra, Born 9/23-10/22: Issues with inheritances and other people’s money arise this week, and you do best to take a measured, sober stance. Even if there’s disruption, make sure to hold steady and look to the future, even if difficult past issues arise. 

Scorpio, Born 10/23-11/21: If you’ve been listening to the heavens, you been making dramatic, hard, but expansive changes over the past year. However, others can help you with the more incremental, long term game if you open up to benefical relationships and partnerships. 

Sagittarius, Born 11/22-12/21:Issues around your health and daily working conditions have been disrupted as of late. You don’t like to approach matter with conservatism, but it helps you here, along with opening yourself to the emotive line that ultimately builds your future. 

Capricorn, Born 12/22-1/19: You’re experiencing a nice expressive moment with your creative fruits, children or otherwise. Know that this will build wonderfully over time as long as you stay your normal, structured, conservative course. 

Aquarius, Born 1/20-2/18: You’re keen on the future, with the drive and verve to back it up. Yet become awakened to a building process that is gradual and adjusting rather the inspirational and fleeting to achieve your extraordinary visions.

Pisces, Born 2/19-3/20: Staying grounded in your thoughts and communication, even if they take on an eccentric quality as of late, is the key to your long term career success. It may not be as introverted and as exciting as your dreamy, colorful, creative world, but you benefit in the end.

The Most Disruptive Week Since the 30's

This is a momentous week in the heavens, as the new, invisible, moon situates herself in her favorite sign of Taurus, providing optimal conditions to build and grow the great materials that spring from the earth. Also, Uranus, the great awakener and disruptor, moves into Taurus, a grounded state he might not immediately relish but that could be beneficial. Uranus is the sky God, birthed from Gaia, the earth, but through the family lineage of the Gods has come down to unleash the fire of creativity upon humankind through Promethean spirit. You may experience massive, earthly disruption when Uranus takes on the garb of Taurus, but if you can adjust, this is one of the most powerful times for your potential as an individual. In fact, this type of configuration has not occurred since the mid-thirties. Be forewarned, however, that the disruptive power of Uranus can be catastrophic. The power of Taurus and Cancer will be required, especially through Venus as she moves into that protective sign next week. The word tenor comes to mind, meaning “to hold”, and heroic, physical acts such as a great, operatic tenor holding onto a climatic high note is the spirit of the next week. 

Aries, Born 3/21-4/19: You’re set to experience some massive changes in your money, possessions, and what you value. The key is to own this and not impulsively react to external circumstances. 

Taurus, Born 4/20-5/20: You are set to experience massive changes this week to who you are, your will, and purpose. Do what you do best and take ownership of how you will build upon this, and put your mind toward harnessing this disruptive energy.

Gemini, Born 5/21-6/20: Your normative state of being is to be curious, communicative, and aware, but the heavens will throw you some massive curves this week, manifesting through your emotions and dreams. You do best to sit back and process these quakes and then move forward in your extroverted, communicative manner.

Cancer, Born 6/21-7/22: You may experience disruption with your friends and social networks. The best way to approach this is to reboot and slowly supplant the social networks that feed your soul. 

Leo, Born 7/23-8/22: Taking ownership of your career, especially on a monthly time schedule, is the way for you to go. Though this may be a different pace for you, Leo, preferring to shine in the moment, this disruptive approach will pay dividends down the road.

Virgo, Born 8/23-9/22: Though not as obviously spiritual as your opposite, Pisces, you are the virgin who births great, pure things. There is set to be a great awakening in your belief system and knowledge base, and you are the one who will expand, cyclically, in your individual, revolutionary approach.

Libra, Born 9/23-10/22: Though you like to see all sides of an argument, you must take ownership of the carnal motivations of others. The heavens will force you to evaluate what the role of others are in your life and make some hard decisions with regard to them.

Scorpio, Born 10/23-11/21: There is a real opportunity for you to take ownership of the relationships in your life, and not in your carnal, furtive way. Yes, you can own the pleasures the world has to give without having to control or manipulate others. But this can take a little more time than you’re used to. 

Sagittarius, Born 11/22-12/21: You’re set to experience some disruption in your working conditions and even health. You do best not to charge ahead but rather sit and take ownership of your unfolding situation. 

Capricorn, Born 12/22-1/19: Though there has been a driving impulse towards your ambition and status, your normative mode, you have a real opportunity to express yourself creatively. This energy will be less driving and climbing and more emotive and internal, a welcome change for your state of mind. 

Aquarius, Born 1/20-2/18:You are set to experience disruption in your home life even though home is not necessarily your favorite place to be. Though your head is in the future, you need to have a home base, so you do best to put your mind towards defining your home space.

Pisces, Born 2/19-3/20: Being grounded, purposeful, and taking ownership in your communication will takes your far if you are open to expressing yourself this way. Your magic will take care of the rest.

Choosing Venus, and the Waning Moon

As the beautiful days of Taurus have begun their denouement, so is the moon waning. This is not necessarily an easy wane, as the moon looks toward the future while letting go of the past, starting off the week inhabiting the sign of visionary Aquarius. What are you to do? Inquire, especially with others whom you find wondrous and beautiful, about what the coming months hold for you. Your questions and curiosity take on a child-like tone as sociable Venus wears the energy of extroverted, playful Gemini, and this is a better approach than joining with war-mongering Mars. Be a child who drops the toy that no longer holds his attention, and you will move forward triumphantly. 

Aries, Born 3/21-4/19: Relating to others is not necessarily your forte, but reach out and let others do your pioneering work for you. 

Taurus, Born 4/20-5/20: Past failures don’t have to indicate future gains, especially with regard to your status and career. Become a child as you playfully envision what the future may hold.

Gemini, Born 5/21-6/20: The wonderful benefic planet Venus is in your sign, and the moon beautifully aspects her, so there’s no limit to your love and social life.

Cancer, Born 6/21-7/22: Confronting your thoughts and feelings about love and relationships may not be easy, but when you bring them to light, you become a master of the social arena. 

Leo, Born 7/23-8/22: You’re desperate to move forward but, your past seems to be holding you back with regard to your future plans. Don’t worry about the past as it’s already behind you.

Virgo, Born 8/23-9/22: You’re feeling your past especially as it relates to health and working conditions. Your future is not wedded to the past but rather your dramatic motion forwards, even if it’s a dream unbeknownst to you. 

Libra, Born 9/23-10/22: You’re feeling the past especially as it relates to your creative offspring. Even though this is where your emotions are, try to get outside of them and be curious about how the higher realms of thought and spirit can take you to your next destination. 

Scorpio, Born 10/23-11/21: Your thoughts are dedicated to how you can place the structures to support your ambition and success, but take a moment to remember the past as you move forward, lest you sting someone else and cause your own demise. 

Sagittarius, Born 11/22-12/21: Your thoughts and feelings are dominated by the past, but you’re moving towards a higher, more knowledge-driven future. This will take some dramatic expression on your part, as opposed to your usual blunt, seeking movements.

Capricorn, Born 12/22-1/19: There may be some money troubles, but money comes in the form of values. When you decide what really matters for you, your past money troubles will lead to future gains. 

Aquarius, Born 1/20-2/18:Though you desperately want to move to the future, as Aquarius is the sign of the future, you’re feeling the weight of the past. A warm, golden lover will help, if you’re open to the drama of a relationship. 

Pisces, Born 2/19-3/20: You may have some unresolved issues regarding past ideals for your future. You must honor these feelings, or they could be your undoing.

Published Every Monday—Moon Day

 

This week, in a rare synchronicity, the sun’s character, having just shifted to the futuristic sign of Aquarius, matches the moon’s message, a waxing crescent that is struggling to break with the old to make way for the new. Specifically, you are beginning to feel and see the length of days expand from the darkest of the year to greater sunlight shed. This is all good news, but remember, though you feel aggressively jubilant about your prospects, and you should, where you want to be is not where you are now. You will have your personal revolution this spring, but for the moment, hold steady.  

Aries, Born 3/21-4/19: You’re really feeling the fire this week, Aries, as the moon is shifting through you and your sign. Remember that even though you are the masthead of the zodiac, a rugged individual who leads all others, enlisting the cooperation of others, especially those whom you find beautiful and diplomatic, will help you actualize the fire in your belly.

Taurus, Born 4/20-5/20: You’re feeling a little unsettled this week, a state the you, as the fixed, sitting, bull do not enjoy. Make sure to reach out to a friend or partner who can be a sounding board to shed some light on what’s upsetting you, and in turn, move forward at your own pace.

Gemini, Born 5/21-6/20: This week is a great time to start letting your ideas catch fire, especially amongst friends, larger social groups, and organizations. If a tree falls in the forest and no one hears it, did it fall? Your ideas want to be freed, so make a wish, and let those around you do the rest.

Cancer, Born 6/21-7/22: There’s a lot of emphasis on your relationships and partnerships right now, but make sure to take care of your own career and public recognition. You’re great at nurturing and holding onto others, but hold onto the emotions that will carry you far, and reach out to those specific people who can help to this end. You’ll be surprised at the audience you can court.

Leo, Born 7/23-8/22:  You’re thinking about the future more than usual this week, a dragon breathing fire. But remember, slow and steady wins the race, and creating the ideal blend of elements, and dispensing with the difficult elements that aren’t serving you is the way you truly get to the future you desire.

Virgo, Born 8/23-9/22: This is an emotional week for you, Virgo, especially with regard to work, the area of your life which you value the most. Understand that the pain you are experiencing now, unclear and tempestuous, will lead to better results later.

Libra, Born 9/23-10/22: This is an interesting week for you, Libra, as you’re thinking much more about what you’re creating as opposed to curating that which comes before you. This applies to sexuality, relationships, work, and creativity. Though you are the blind judge, you are a creator too. Search your feelings and let them be your guide, a departure from the airy, thoughtful being that you are.

Scorpio, Born 10/23-11/21: This could potentially be a great week for you, Scorpio, as your deeply instinctual feelings, if you act on them in a healthy manner, can take you far with regard to knowledge, travel, career, and new social networks. The trick is to manage these instincts so  you don’t feel the urge to sting.

Sagittarius, Born 11/22-12/21: You might be feeling a little deflated this week, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. There’s a lot of energy for you to put some sensible checks on your finances, and even your deepest values and beliefs, so that when you do press onward, as the Centaur and archer, you can ride more easily to glory.

Capricorn, Born 12/22-1/19: There’s extra emphasis on your career this week, which is a perennial and sometimes self-sabotaging emphasis. You can’t always make it to the top alone, even if the others who help you are acquaintances along the way.

Aquarius, Born 1/20-2/18: This is quite a curious week for you, but you are the unique one of the zodiac. There’s part of you that is perpetually living in the future, yet your hidden emotional and dream world holds you back. Remember that moving forward is at once a process of negotiating with the past as you move forward. Keeping this in your extraordinary mind will help you truly move forward on your own terms.

Pisces, Born 2/19-3/20: Hang on for the ride; what is usually dreamy, formless, and fluid breaks into new life for you, Pisces. Who would have thought that your dream world could become a reality?
