Moon opposition Mars
Challenging Moon/Mars aspects instigate irritability, willfulness, anger, hurry, a competitive or contrary attitude. Cure: exercise, chop wood, take a brisk walk, acknowledge desires or frustrations, and then finesse that argument. Exercise awareness.
Moon Square Venus
Challenging Moon/Venus aspects can bring social awkwardness, hot or cold emotions, longing, questionable aesthetics. Cure: perform a random act of kindness, diplomacy, art therapy.
Moon Square Mercury:
Moon/Mercury aspects bring a tendency to get lost in the mind and inspire glitches in all things Mercurial; we can get more edgy, irritable, anxious, scattered, diffused, glib. Cure for Moon/Mercury discomfort: Reconnect mind and heart.
Waning Half Moon in Aquarius
The moon is our inward sense of self, emotions and psyche. When in airy Aquarius we focus more on community, ingenuity, collaboration and idealism. It’s time to honor the philosophy of love and the power of community.
Moon sextile Venus: Do you need to be diplomatic? Nurture romance? Create? Choose supportive Moon/Venus aspects. They warm our hearts and add sociability, cuddliness, compassion, creativity and good taste. excerpts adapted from Heather Roan Robbins‘ WM 2018 pgs 226 & 15-17 unless oterwise specified
Give relatives the room to be outrageous on Sunday, we may feel no less outspoken, but more sociable and humorous as the Moon enters upbeat Sagittarius. Easter gatherings will be the most fun they keep an element of spontaneity. On Monday the Taurus Sun conjuncts change-inducing Uranus and instigate a minor earthquake, small but substantial shift to improve our habits, our garden, our world. The Moon enters industrious Capricorn on Tuesday and encourages us to keep those pragmatic changes rolling forward.
Keep an eye out on for some Machiavellian political moves in the middle of the week under the Capricorn Moon as Pluto stations and turns retrograde, though we may not see the evidence of them for a few months. On Thursday, as the Moon conjuncts Pluto and Saturn, people may get grim but are willing to work towards advancement of dreams, ideals, plots and plans. Use this determination to make improvements.
