« Hear and skim present notes

Howdy Invisible Buddy, April right here, and the date right this moment is April 1st, 2024. Welcome to Episode 228 of the Large Sky Astrology Podcast. This week, Mercury stations retrograde for a three-week backward march via Aries. Venus has a busy week, making a conjunction with Neptune, coming into Aries and sextiling Pluto. And the Capricorn Final Quarter Moon asks, how can we consider our progress? And I reply a few listener questions on composite charts and being born on a Void-of-Course Moon.

Mercury stations retrograde (April 1, 2024, 3:14 pm PDT)

The week begins with Mercury stationing retrograde on April 1st at 3:14 p.m. Pacific Time at 27º13’ Aries on the Sabian image 28 Aries, A big dissatisfied viewers. Mercury might be retrograde till April twenty fifth, and it’s most likely going to be a stereotypically aggravating Mercury retrograde interval since Aries is a really fast-moving signal, and it actually doesn’t wish to be slowed down, which regularly appears to be the case when a planet is retrograde.

When Mercury is retrograde, our ideas flip inward. And this explicit retrograde could possibly be a terrific one to contemplate your individual ideas, your individual method of taking a look at issues. I feel when Mercury is retrograde in Aries, deal with one thing that requires new concepts, new data, that appears like a problem. Aries actually likes a problem. Whereas Mercury is retrograde, it’ll make a conjunction with the Solar on April 11. It’s going to make a conjunction with Venus on April nineteenth.

And what about that Sabian image, A big, dissatisfied viewers? One thing I’m listening to from folks and seeing on social media within the final couple of weeks is a way of feeling very rushed, feeling as if we’re attempting so onerous to make a reputation for ourselves, to make ourselves observed. That is significantly in social media and this sort of factor. I feel whereas Mercury is retrograde, and particularly in a really individualistic signal like Aries, the time has come to essentially take into consideration how we’re pleasing ourselves, not the massive dissatisfied viewers – as a result of somebody’s all the time going to be dissatisfied with something we do. If we’re doing one thing inventive, if we’re attempting to make a distinction on the earth, anyone can have an opinion about it. And it’s actually vital to consider our personal opinion of ourselves, how it’s we’re doing, and what it’s that we’re doing. I feel this could possibly be a useful Mercury retrograde interval, from that standpoint.

Capricorn Final Quarter Moon (April 1, 2024, 8:15 pm PDT)

And now for the Moon Report! And it begins with the Capricorn, Final Quarter Moon, in a while April 1st at 8:15 pm Pacific Time, at 12º52’ Capricorn, with the Solar on the similar diploma of Aries. When the Final Quarter Moon part is in Capricorn, it’s roughly in its pure place. The Final Quarter has a pure feeling of Capricorn about it, about evaluating what we’ve performed thus far and desirous about how issues could possibly be performed higher subsequent time.

That is once we assess the progress of this New Moon cycle. This New Moon cycle started in Pisces on March 10th, with the impulse to discover our compassionate, inventive, and non secular sides, to ask the massive questions, to consider what does all of it imply and what’s the position that we’re taking part in. However the Final Quarter is in Capricorn, which is a really pragmatic Earth signal. And it has one query, how can we measure our progress?

To start with, we’ve to implement a plan. You already know, the New Moon in Pisces is beautiful for a lot of issues, nevertheless it doesn’t function on that sensible, “let’s make a listing” type of stage, however Capricorn Final Quarter Moon does. And it says, should you simply have a plan that you just’re working towards, let’s say you wish to make the world a greater place, what does that appear like in sensible phrases? Are you going to exit and volunteer at a meals financial institution or a homeless shelter as soon as a month? What does it really look love to do these items? After which should you’re making progress.

That stated, we’ve to be a bit bit cautious with the Capricorn Final Quarter Moon, and the Final Quarter part generally as a result of there’s a distinction between evaluating your progress and beating up on your self. And that is one thing we are able to all too simply fall into on the Final Quarter, particularly in Capricorn, which is a really robust signal. After we consider ourselves from a Capricorn standpoint, we’re a really strict instructor.

Lunar Part Household Cycle

That is the Final Quarter in a Lunar Part Household Cycle that started on January 2nd, 2022, with a New Moon at 12º20’ Capricorn.

So, we began out at first of January 2022 with a objective. At first of 2022, I keep in mind it being a troublesome time to make resolutions or intentions. I keep in mind Venus was retrograde and there may need been another issues retrograde as effectively. So, it wasn’t the best. We needed to type of anticipate all the data to return in till we may actually start to plan our yr.

Then, on the First Quarter on October 2nd, 2022, motion was taken on that plan. On July third, 2023, on the Full Moon on this lunar part household cycle, a way of seeing now the place we had been in relation to the place we began out at first of the earlier yr.

And now we’re on the Final Quarter, and I’d encourage you to take the time and assume again, if nothing else, to January 2022. Take a look at your journals, have a look at your planners, have a look at your emails. Determine what was occurring in your life at the moment. What’s the home of your chart the place 12º20’ Capricorn lies?

This explicit lunar part household had a robust attribute of creativity as a result of it started on the Sabian image 13 Capricorn, A fireplace worshipper. The hearth is a kind of a metaphor for the inventive course of. And now we’re ending up on the identical Sabian image. What’s it that you just got down to create? What was it in your inventive course of that wanted to be refined at that New Moon? And perhaps required you to make some troublesome selections as effectively. And the way are you doing now with what you got down to do for your self creatively at that New Moon?

Void-of-Course Moon Durations

Let’s have a look at the Void-of-Course Moon intervals for this week.

On April 2nd, the Moon in Capricorn sextiles Neptune at 10:40 p.m. Pacific Time. It’s Void-of-Course for about three and a half hours after which enters Aquarius on April third at 2:08 a.m. Sextiles convey a chance. And I feel that this explicit Void-of-Course Moon interval provides the chance or the invitation to work onerous and preserve to a schedule. As a result of this may give our intuitive colleges a spot to land, and on which to construct magnificence and artistry. And to create the type of boundaries that make us really feel snug to provide to others and be useful and compassionate, with out worrying that we are going to be utterly overwhelmed by another person’s wants.

On April 4th, the Moon in Aquarius sextiles Mercury in Aries at 10:40 p.m. Pacific Time. It’s Void of Course for about 5 and a half hours after which enters Pisces on April fifth at 4:13 a.m.

The chance throughout this Void-of-Course Moon interval is to alternate concepts with mates, to get or to provide a pep discuss. Moon in Aquarius is fairly indifferent from the uncooked feelings of issues, so it’s a very good Moon signal for actually pondering issues via. And the sextile to Mercury in Aries says that there are most likely folks in your circle, perhaps one good pal who’s a very good coach. Who’s actually good at pushing you ahead to make progress.

That’s a high quality I actually affiliate with Aries. They’re one of the best coaches. And should you don’t have that type of shoot-from-the-hip Aries particular person in your life, effectively, you might have to provide your self a pep discuss.

Then on April seventh, the Moon in Pisces makes a conjunction with Neptune at 1:27 a.m. Pacific Time. It’s Void-of-Course for about three hours after which enters Aries at 4:25 a.m.

Conjunctions convey what I might describe as a way of stress. The stress right here may be about letting your self really feel what you’re feeling relatively than operating away out of your emotions. As a result of Pisces is a really delicate signal, particularly when the Moon is there. And once we get overwhelmed, which might occur when the Moon connects with Neptune, which has the same high quality about it, of being very delicate to every part round us, effectively, it might get overwhelming. And the tendency typically is to only shut down emotionally as a result of it’s an excessive amount of. So this Void-of-Course Moon, I feel, provides us a time for experimentation.

Now that is in the course of the night time, right here on the west coast of america, or very early should you go additional east. However this could possibly be a message that you just give your self earlier than you go to mattress, to discover this in your desires, to discover this in your unconscious. To let your self keep in mind your desires, really feel what you’re feeling, and don’t simply get within the behavior of shutting issues down emotionally when it will get too intense.

Venus conjunct Neptune (April 3, 2024, 6:10 am PDT)

Venus makes a conjunction with Neptune on April third at 6:10 am Pacific Time at 28º Pisces, on the Sabian image, 28 Pisces, A fertile backyard underneath the Full Moon. As I began to report this a part of the podcast a bit bit earlier, my cat, Violet, began simply whining on the door outdoors my workplace. Clearly, she wished one thing, however I don’t know what.

And I feel that that is typically the case when Venus is in a conjunction with Neptune. You don’t know what you need. You yearn for one thing. Nevertheless it doesn’t take a selected kind in your thoughts. It may be a time once you’re reflecting on previous relationships, desirous about what was lovely about them, or what went mistaken, however ultimately feeling that little little bit of nostalgia.

Venus does speak about relationships and it talks about cash too, and on a purely sensible stage, I might say it’s most likely not one of the best time to exit and make a serious buy, since you’re not likely clear about what you need. So, you don’t actually know the way to consider what it’s that you just’re buying, and also you would possibly later really feel some remorse.

Solar conjunct North Node (April 4, 3:10 pm PDT)

The Solar makes a conjunction with the Moon’s North Node on April 4th at 3:10 p.m. Pacific Time, at 15º37’ Aries on the Sabian image, 16 Aries, Brownies dancing within the setting solar – so lyrical. Let’s contemplate this the preamble to the massive photo voltaic eclipse that’s approaching April eighth and never a nasty time to only watch what occurs. Eclipses occur when a New or Full Moon is in a conjunction with the lunar nodes. However that may occur inside 17º of the precise facet. So right here we’ve the Solar coming as much as make the conjunction with the North Node every week upfront of that eclipse. And I feel it’s most likely a reasonably sturdy preview of coming sights.

The place is the Solar metaphorically shining in your chart at round 15 1/2ºAries? What’s it you really need in your life transferring ahead, symbolized by the North Node, and how are you going to get there?

Venus enters Aries (April 4, 2024, 9 pm PDT)

Later that night at 9 p.m. on April 4th, Venus enters Aries. It’ll be on this signal via April twenty ninth. Now, historically talking, Venus is just not actually strongly positioned in Aries. Aries represents ideas which might be type of the alternative of what Venus is about. Venus symbolizes pleasure, togetherness, and cooperation, whereas Aries symbolizes striving, individualism, and competitors.

When Venus goes into this signal, what can we count on? Effectively, Venus is the place we’ll discover pleasure. So, discover pleasure within the expertise of your bodily physique. Get entangled in some type of train routine that’s very energetic and really dynamic. This can be a time once we really take pleasure in competitors. So, a few of these bodily actions could possibly be aggressive to make you’re feeling actually glad.

I’ve observed too that Venus in Aries or when it’s in a facet with Mars really type of enjoys competing for romantic pursuits and many vitality throughout this transit goes into incomes cash. And the entire different issues we talked about, competitors with different people who find themselves doing the identical belongings you’re doing, let’s say you’re going for some type of promotion at work and this could be a time of competitors, of getting to revise your elevator pitch about how nice you might be.

Folks don’t essentially imagine it after I say so, however Aries is a really romantic signal. And it is vitally courtly, idealistic, in terms of the article of its affection. When Venus is in Aries, it’s a very good time to make these courtly gestures to the associate in your life, in case you have one. Take them out on a date, purchase them a present, do all that type of first date stuff that we do when a relationship is new. What is going to excite Venus throughout this transit is the sensation {that a} relationship is new, even when it, in actual fact, has been occurring for years.

Venus sextile Pluto (April 6, 2024, 10:45 am PDT)

Venus sextiles Pluto on April sixth at 10:45 a.m. Pacific Time at 01°56’ Aries and Aquarius. The Sabian image for Venus is 2 Aries, a comic entertaining a gaggle, and for Pluto the image is 2 Aquarius, an sudden thunderstorm. So right here we’ve this daring Venus in Aries who’s type of up for something, and he or she’s endeavor the terrifying activity of stand-up comedy.

And we’ve to marvel right here, does she get the thrilling response that she’s looking for from the viewers? It’s all the time struck me as a very terrifying factor to do, to rise up in entrance of an viewers and attempt to… It’s one factor to entertain them with music, I’ve performed that, and also you’re there along with your instrument or your voice and you may really feel the engagement of the viewers, nevertheless it’s not such as you’re counting on them for laughter to your joke or one thing like that. However I feel that the individuals who do comedy are very brave and so they even have the sense of needing to be in management and attempting to type of management the viewers.

That’s what we’ve right here, I feel, with Venus being in Aries. And the response from Pluto in Aquarius is sudden, the sudden thunderstorm. And that may imply it’s an enormous increase of applause or laughter, or it may be that horrible second that I think about each comic fears, which is when nothing comes again. If you happen to’ve ever even simply been a bit bit humorous in a lecture or one thing like that, as I actually have, and it simply falls flat, that’s what I’m pondering of right here, the sudden thunderstorm.

So the chance inherent on this sextile between Venus and Pluto is, to claim your self to attempt to interact folks. However placing that on the market and simply seeing the type of response that you just get. And being knowledgeable by that and letting it make it easier to determine the way you wish to act with folks transferring ahead. Venus in Aries is just not partaking with others essentially by nature. This is a chance to experiment with that a bit bit and get a bit extra snug with partaking others in a method that’s extra persuasive than demanding.

Listener Questions: Composite Charts and Born on a Void-of-Course Moon

On this week’s listener query, I really had a few questions that I assumed I may reply fairly shortly, and so I’m going to share them each with you right this moment.

First, listener Kerrie, with an ie, asks, “Composite charts between companions. Please clarify why that is legitimate. Appears completely ridiculous to me. Ha ha. Synastry, sure. Composites, I don’t get it.”

Effectively, Kerrie first, I’m going to remind imaginary mates who’re listening and may not know that synastry is the time period we use once we examine one particular person’s planets of their start chart with one other particular person’s natal planets. And we do that to judge sources of friction and ease. I coated synastry in Episodes 127, 206, and 219 within the listener questions segments, so that you would possibly wish to return and hearken to these. A few them are pretty particular, however they can provide you a good suggestion of what synastry is about and perhaps the way it works.

Now, composite charts, for the good thing about anybody who doesn’t know, it is a approach that takes the start charts of two folks, you’ll be able to really do it for greater than two folks, however let’s say the charts of two folks, and makes use of these two charts to create a 3rd chart that symbolizes the connection, virtually as if the connection itself had been a separate entity and had a separate chart, which in some ways I feel is type of the case in relationships.

The best way we derive this composite chart is locate the midpoint between every planet within the two start charts, and that turns into the composite planet. So, for instance, let’s say you could have Venus at 2º Libra, and also you’re in a relationship with somebody who has Venus at 2º Sagittarius, two indicators away, then the composite Venus can be 2º Scorpio, the purpose precisely in between these two.

So, you try this with every of the planets, after which to get the wheel, the midpoint is discovered between the 2 midheavens of the chart, the tenth home cusp. That composite midpoint diploma is used to construct the remainder of the home cusps for the place the place they stay.

Now again after I did a whole lot of electional work with {couples} to search out marriage ceremony dates, I used the composite chart really quite a bit, way more than I used the start charts. With two start charts, you may need one particular person’s chart going via a bit little bit of a Pluto transit, whereas for the opposite particular person, every part’s arising Jupiter. However each of them are impacted by spending time with the opposite one that’s having a really totally different transit. It’s just like the outdated saying goes, a relationship is just as completely satisfied because the unhappiest particular person in it.

With the composite chart, you get an outline of this dynamic, how each persons are being impacted. And it may be fairly totally different than the start charts, have very totally different transits. I discovered these charts actually helpful in electional work, way more streamlined than synastry, and it simply felt extra dependable to me as a result of this was a scenario the place I’m not attempting to judge how they get alongside, however how that third entity that they create collectively is being impacted by the celestial climate.

If anybody desires a terrific useful resource about composites, do get Rob Hand’s traditional e book, Planets in Composite. And you’ll calculate your composite chart at astro.com. I favor the choice that’s “composite chart midpoint methodology.”

Now, in my subsequent query, listener Pam asks, “Does having a Void-of-Course Moon in your natal chart have impacts on you or your life?”

And I regarded into this whereas I used to be researching a lecture on the Void-of-Course Moon. I really didn’t discover loads that was written about it. However I did discover examples of well-known individuals who had been born on Void-of-Course Moons, and whose lives took actually attention-grabbing twists and turns. Folks like JFK, who was by no means meant to be president. Princess Diana, whose life took a really singular path from instructor to mom of a future king of England. Winston Churchill, he was a really poor scholar however turned out to be this sensible orator and politician. Shirley Temple Black, who went from being a baby star to a diplomat.

Every time I give this lecture on the Void-of-Course Moon, I ask whether or not anybody within the viewers was born on a Void-of-Course Moon, and each certainly one of them has associated strongly to my concept that being born on a Void-of-Course Moon takes you in unpredictable instructions. They’ve shared their very own tales with me of beginning out to be one factor and ending up someplace radically totally different.

I feel that Void-of-Course Moon instances are once we type of need to go alongside for the journey. We see that with the transiting Void-of-Course Moon. And when issues don’t essentially go the way in which we deliberate.

And I feel that may be stated of people who find themselves born through the Void-of-Course Moon as effectively. That their life goes in unpredictable instructions. Nevertheless it doesn’t imply that they’re dangerous instructions.

Kerrie and Pam, I hope that that answered your questions, and I actually respect your writing in.

And should you, Invisible Buddy, have a query you’d like me to reply on a future episode, simply go away a message of 1 minute or much less at SpeakPipe.com/bigskyastrologypodcast.
