Greetings from Listener Lori
Hello, that is Lori from San Diego. I discovered the Large Sky Astrology Podcast by a good friend who listens to it religiously every week. I get pleasure from the way in which April presents the weekly sky happenings in an comprehensible and entertaining method. Thanks – energy out!
And now for at present’s episode!
As we speak’s Planetary Highlights
On this week’s episodes, I’ve been protecting the week’s large astrological information, together with lunar happenings and a few particular subjects. It has been a extremely gentle week for necessary transits, however at present one thing fairly large is going on. At 4:12 AM Pacific Time, the Solar in Virgo trines Jupiter in Taurus at 15º33’ Virgo and Taurus.
This can be a very large planetary mixture in two pretty all the way down to earth, unpretentious indicators. And the message I’m taking away from that is very a lot in line with the Sabian image for the Solar: 16 Virgo, An orangutan. It all the time makes me take into consideration the significance of being our true pure selves regardless of who’s watching us, and it doesn’t matter what they consider how we glance or act. Whereas the Solar is on this diploma for a few days, those that do that, I believe, will obtain optimistic discover.
And because the Solar is on this lovely trine to lucky Jupiter, the individuals who discover us will give us superb evaluations certainly. , now and again I get a free day to putter round the home somewhat bit, and it’s all the time wonderful to me how satisfying it may be to only put your pantry so as or make amends for laundry. Easy little duties, however it might probably truly be enjoyable and satisfying to do them. As we speak with the Solar in Virgo, the organizer, have a look at methods to try this sort of good organizational work and the trine to Jupiter says it would actually repay.
The Moon Report
Now for at present’s Moon report! The Moon is within the signal of Most cancers at present, and all the things associated to the Moon is heightened when it’s in its residence signal. It will get off to a great begin early within the morning with its trine facet to Saturn at 3:43 AM. However it runs into somewhat little bit of uneven emotional water because it makes a sq. to Mars at 1:33 PM.
Neither Mars nor its present signal of Libra are a really comfortable match for Most cancers. Mars’ straight-ahead nature and its tendency towards open battle is at odds with Most cancers’s oblique method. And the signal of Libra, which Mars is in, leans towards the mental moderately than the emotional. Attempt to not overreact if someone speaks to you somewhat abruptly, which is perhaps symbolized by that facet to Mars, or simply in a approach that’s geared towards rational thought – Libra – with out taking delicate emotions into consideration.
The Moon remains to be in its Final Quarter part, which is a time of the month for wanting again, reflecting, contemplating how we would have extra successfully completed issues otherwise and the sorts of corrections we would need to make shifting ahead over the following week earlier than the New Moon.
A heads-up, too, that the Most cancers Moon will likely be Void-of-Course on Sunday, September tenth, between its opposition to Pluto at 5:47 AM Pacific time, and when it enters Leo at 9:36 AM. That’s a virtually four-hour Void-of-Course Moon interval, whose tone could be very a lot set by Pluto. Unresolved emotions and hurts, and even regrets may rise to the floor. So sleep in should you can, after which possibly exit and meet some mates for a festive Leo brunch.
Greetings from Listener Teresa
Hello, April. My identify is Teresa. I discovered your podcast on-line over a 12 months in the past. I discover it fascinatingly enjoyable, and so good to listen to good astrology from a real, sincere lioness. Blessings.
Days of the Week: Friday, Saturday, and Sunday
This week I’ve additionally been sharing somewhat bit about which of the seven seen planets guidelines every day of the week, and what are the types of issues which are favored on every planet’s day. As we speak, we’ll have a look at Friday in addition to Saturday and Sunday.
Friday is Venus’ Day. Friday is known as for Freya, a Norse goddess related to love, magnificence, fertility, and intercourse. She is kind of the Norse equal of Venus, in order that’s the planet that we have fun on Fridays.
Conventional homemakers made Friday the day that they cleaned their properties, and I all the time suppose possibly this was an homage to Venus’ impulse towards magnificence and harmonious environment. However Venus additionally describes the power to draw what we would like, so why not mix the 2?
Usually, I carry out a easy little power clearing ritual on Fridays. This begins with gentle cleansing, principally clearing muddle in anticipation of a extra main cleansing on Saturday. I smudge with a sage wand, gentle some candles. Open up all of the home windows and supply a fast request of Venus to bless our residence with love, concord, prosperity, and good mates.
If courting is a part of your Friday evening routine, honor Venus, the goddess of relationship with a small altar, furnished with a flower, a candle, possibly some candy choices akin to a sweet or a cookie. Mild your candle. State your intentions for the night and visualize a heat, nice time.
Saturday is Saturn’s day, and any sort of onerous bodily labor is appropriate with Saturn’s power. If it is advisable transfer heavy objects akin to furnishings or onerous scaping in your backyard, at present is the day that you just’re extra prone to discover power for it. Clear your hearth or until the soil in your backyard and watch Saturn smile.
The standard homemaker baked on Saturday in order that contemporary bread could be obtainable for Sunday, the Sabbath, when no cooking ought to actually be completed. I like to bake when the climate is cool, nevertheless it does require extra saturnine time and group than the standard homemaker can typically spare.
Saturn rewards onerous work and it stiffens the backbone for unappealing chores. In order that’s why I’ve chosen Saturday in my family for tackling my least beloved duties, like washing the automotive or home windows or flooring, which I hate, or cleansing the fridge.
And eventually, Sunday is the Solar’s Day. This was the standard day of relaxation put aside for leisure, recreation, and worship, all of that are dominated by the Solar. In our family, Sunday tends to be the day we make amends for sleep and errands and time with one another. As we speak is the day for something that makes you’re feeling rested and revitalized. It’s a day for play, which restores bodily and inventive power for the week forward. “A change is nearly as good as a relaxation,” the previous saying goes, and Sundays are sometimes happiest after they’re fully completely different from our standard routine. So taking a visit to a museum, or the theater or the park, visiting with household, making ready a particular meal, these are all wonderful methods to honor the Solar’s day.
Effectively that’s all the things on my present sheet, so I’m gonna wrap this one up – and that’s a wrap, too, on the Fourth Annual Podathon! It’s onerous to imagine that it’s the fourth Labor Day week that we’ve spent collectively, and I actually hope that you just’ve loved these further episodes this week.
