« Hear and browse present notes

Whats up Invisible Buddy, April right here, and the date at this time is April fifteenth, 2024. Welcome to Episode 230 of the Huge Sky Astrology Podcast. This week, the First Quarter Moon in Most cancers confronts us with the necessity to rework within the face of issues past our management. The Solar enters Taurus and squares Pluto. And the long-awaited and thrilling conjunction of Jupiter and Uranus. Plus, I reply a few listener questions on household.

Most cancers First Quarter Moon (April 15, 2024, 12:13 pm PDT)

The week begins with the Moon Report and the Most cancers First Quarter Moon on April fifteenth at 12:13 pm Pacific Time at 26º18’ Most cancers. Within the chart for this First Quarter Moon, the Solar, Moon, and Pluto create a high-energy T-square side. First Quarter Moons demand motion, and this configuration within the chart says that we are going to undoubtedly really feel underneath strain to get issues shifting.

The Sabian image for the First Quarter Moon is 27 Most cancers, A storm in a canyon. James Burgess characterizes this image as describing transformation following a disaster. I feel it is a fairly good illustration of the place we’re at after final week’s huge New Moon Photo voltaic Eclipse in Aries. It is a time after we’re coping with issues which might be outdoors of our management, and when it’s time to permit ourselves to be modified by these items. I used to be really actually stunned at how exhausting that eclipse felt. In my chart, it doesn’t side very a lot, however however, I actually felt that prime vitality coming from that eclipse, and possibly it’s simply the truth that everyone was speaking about it and it was everywhere in the tv and there was no getting away from it.

Particularly, a First Quarter Moon in Most cancers talks about taking motion to guard what you’ve gotten and to nurture and create conditions the place you and the individuals near you’re feeling taken care of.  That is the time to take motion on what we envisioned or supposed at that huge April eighth New Moon Photo voltaic eclipse. Taking first motion alongside that path.

Lunar Part Household Cycle

However that is additionally the First Quarter in a Lunar Part Household Cycle that started again on July seventeenth, 2023, with a New Moon at 24º56’ Most cancers. That was a really intense New Moon. It was opposed Pluto, Venus was turning retrograde and I imagine the lunar nodes had been altering indicators as nicely.

In order that New Moon was organising a three-year cycle to discover all of these totally different themes that had been happening round that very same time. Now the First Quarter Moon at 26º18’ Most cancers. Apart from asking us to behave on what was initiated on the April eighth New Moon, we’re additionally invited to return to what it was we supposed at that New Moon on July seventeenth, 2023, and take motion in that cycle.


Now, once more, this isn’t at all times an intentional course of. Typically it simply means one thing started round that point, and a few sort of motion is named for now. It doesn’t at all times essentially come from us, however generally it does. The Full Moon on this cycle comes on January thirteenth, 2025, after which the Final Quarter is on October thirteenth, 2025.

I wished to take this chance to offer just a little reminder about this Lunar Part Household Cycle as a result of I had a pair individuals asking about this lately after I was giving a lecture on the subject. I wished to verify I gave correct credit score to Diedrich Pessin, who’s the astrologer who got here up with this technique, and it’s so good and so helpful. I simply wished to offer a fast shout-out to her, and in addition a plug for her fantastic e book Lunar Shadows III: The Predictive Energy of Moon Phases and Eclipses. I’ll put a hyperlink to that within the present notes as a result of it’s an impressive e book, and I actually would suggest it to anyone who’s within the subject. I do know that we’ve talked about her on the podcast earlier than, but it surely’s in all probability been a short while, and I believed it’s not a nasty thought.

There was additionally an episode throughout my podathon final September the place I talked in some depth about this method, and we’ll hyperlink to that within the present notes as nicely. And as at all times, a shout out to my good friend Celeste Brooks of Astrology by Celeste, who tipped me off about this cycle two or three years in the past. I hadn’t heard of it earlier than. And it’s confirmed to be a extremely helpful, actually fascinating instrument that I’m utilizing in my work.

Void-of-Course Moon Intervals

Let’s have a look at the Void-of-Course Moon durations for this week. On April fifteenth, the Moon in Most cancers trines Neptune at 4:22 pm Pacific Time. It’s Void-of-Course for nearly three hours after which enters Leo at 7:24 pm Pacific Time. When the Moon is making a trine side to a different planet at the start of Void-of-Course Moon, it suggests that there’s a reward that’s coming our manner and on this case, I feel it’s about creating new and therapeutic habits in our lives round meals, meditation, time that we spend with household.

If these are components of your life that actually haven’t been flowing too nicely for you, this is likely to be a fairly rewarding time to set your thoughts in direction of creating new habits. I feel, typically, the Void-of-Course Moon is an effective time to interrupt harmful habits and to begin new ones, and it’s very true with this one.

On April 18th, the Moon in Leo trines the Solar in Aries at 5:02 am Pacific Time. It’s Void-of-Course for just a little over two hours and enters Virgo at 7:10 am. The reward with this Void-of-Course Moon interval is that the pleasure and vanity which might be cultivated whereas the Moon is in Leo would possibly make it just a little extra potential to tackle new challenges. That is an particularly good Void-of-Course Moon interval for getting out of a rut.

And on April twentieth, the Moon in Virgo opposes Neptune at 5:19 pm Pacific Time. It’s Void-of-Course for slightly below three hours. And enters Libra at 8:08 pm Pacific Time. There’s an consciousness that comes when the Moon is opposing one other planet. And the attention right here is about discovering an excellent steadiness, which an opposition at all times factors us towards, between logic and instinct, between order and dysfunction. That is the time to attempt to break habits of compulsiveness, disorganization, procrastination and to consciously domesticate good every day habits round well being, and particularly the way in which we address stress.

The Moon is in Virgo, and Virgo, dominated by Mercury, can get very a lot in its head, and that may result in stress. So, this is a chance to attempt to provoke some good habits that will help you nonetheless your thoughts and discover peace.

Venus conjoins the North Node (April 17, 2024, 11:46 am PDT)

On April seventeenth at 11:46 am Pacific Time, Venus in Aries makes a conjunction with the Moon’s North Node. And on April nineteenth at 1:59 am Pacific Time, Mercury makes a conjunction with Venus. So, Venus making a conjunction with the North Node could be a transit for bringing vital associates or companions into your orbit. These shall be new individuals which might be coming your manner, and that is particularly so when you’ve got factors in your chart which might be near 15º Aries, Most cancers, Libra, or Capricorn.

Then Mercury, coming along with Venus. Emphasizes communication abilities in your relationships. Additionally, maybe, the flexibility to speak by arts.

In any occasion, these three days, April seventeenth by the nineteenth, are actually glorious ones for socializing, for connecting particularly with new individuals.

Solar enters Taurus (April 19, 2024, 7:00 am PDT)

The Solar enters its Taurus season on April nineteenth at 7 am Pacific Time. It’ll be in Taurus by Could twentieth, and Taurus season is the time after we relaxation and restore ourselves after the frenetic vitality of Aries season, and particularly this Aries season as a result of we had two eclipses and Mercury retrograde.

General, Taurus season is the time to take inventory of what you’ve gotten and what you want to be able to make your self secure and cozy. The peacefulness of the Solar in Taurus doesn’t final very lengthy.

A few days after it enters Taurus, the Solar squares Pluto in Aquarius on April twenty first at 10:02 am Pacific Time. Which brings the attention, possibly, of a scarcity or a hardship. Or possibly feeling pressured to offer others greater than you actually wish to. The Solar and Pluto on the sq. at 2 levels 4 minutes of Taurus and Aquarius. And the Sabian image for the Solar is Steps as much as a garden blooming with clover. A picture of nice magnificence.

However Pluto is on the diploma 3 Aquarius, A deserter from the Navy. One way or the other this makes me consider somebody who has lots and is confronted by somebody who they really feel have abandoned their duties and they also don’t have a lot. Somebody who’s left a job, did not construct their financial savings, taken on an excessive amount of debt. The stress of the sq. comes from the truth that the Solar and Pluto each have some extent. The Solar in Taurus has gone to nice lengths to make itself snug. and to offer for itself. However we’ve got to suppose just a little bit about that diploma for Pluto, a deserter from the Navy. I do know I’ve spoken about this image earlier than. On the face of it, it’s very reduce and dried. Right here’s somebody that simply ran away from their obligations.

Now we have to do not forget that we don’t at all times know the explanation that any person leaves a state of affairs. It may have been a matter of conscience. It may have been that any person of their life actually wanted them. So, I feel a part of the strain of this sq. is to not essentially really feel that we’ve got all of the solutions and that we all know the whole lot about individuals.

Solar in Taurus can fall into that lure generally, a sense they know what’s what and that there’s no potential different clarification for a state of affairs. Right here I feel we’ve got to do not forget that we don’t at all times know all of the info of the state of affairs and to maybe even see if there are methods that we might help the individuals in our lives who’re in want.

Mars sextile Jupiter (April 19, 2024, 8:28 am PDT)
Mars sextile Uranus (April 19, 2024, 4:56 pm PDT)

Additionally, on April nineteenth, Mars sextiles Jupiter at 8:28 am Pacific Time, at 21º29’ Pisces and Taurus. And at 4:56 pm on the identical day, Mars sextiles Uranus at 21º46’ Pisces and Taurus. That is the day earlier than the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction and each of these planets are receiving these sextile features from Mars.

There are thrilling prospects which might be coming with that conjunction. However these sextiles would possibly recommend that we’ll get much more from Jupiter and Uranus if we put forth just a little effort.

Jupiter conjoins Uranus (April 20, 2024, 7:27 pm PDT)

And on April twentieth at 7:27 pm Pacific Time, Jupiter makes a conjunction with Uranus at 21º49’ Taurus. The Sabian image for this conjunction is 22 Taurus, A white dove over troubled waters.

Let’s have a look at the fundamental symbolism of Jupiter and Uranus. Jupiter enlarges, expands, reveals us infinite prospects. Uranus is a planet that calls for change. We will count on Jupiter to amplify the affect of Uranus and Uranus prevents Jupiter from getting just a little too certain of itself.

It is a mixture that upsets the apple cart. However Jupiter provides success to the combination. I feel it was Steven Forrest who wrote in a current article on his web site, I’ll discover it and hyperlink to it within the present notes, that this mixture is one meaning it’s a must to shake issues up to be able to get that success from Jupiter.

Jupiter and Uranus have a 14-year synodic cycle, which implies they arrive collectively in a conjunction about each 14 years. The final Jupiter-Uranus conjunction was again in June and September 2010 and in January 2011. Was there one thing notably thrilling that you would be able to keep in mind taking place in your life round that point?

And as for this conjunction, is there a spot in your life the place you’ve been feeling caught? The clue can often be present in the home of your chart the place this diploma falls. So, search for the home of your chart that comprises 21º49’ Taurus. Right here is your probability to get unstuck and to maneuver in a optimistic new path.

You would possibly really feel this mixture most strongly if there are any factors in your chart which might be inside 3 or 4 levels both facet of 21º49 minutes Taurus, so possibly between about 18 levels and 26 levels. And particularly of the fastened indicators, so Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, or Aquarius.

It’s not at all times the case, although. Typically you possibly can have a extremely sturdy and favorable expertise of one thing coming collectively within the sky like this conjunction. And it’s not essentially activating too many planets or factors in your chart, however I might undoubtedly have a look at the home of the chart the place this mixture is coming collectively, it may undoubtedly be success, nonetheless, you outline that, however it should require the willingness to vary to be able to activate that good luck.

Listener’s Questions: Household

On this week’s Listener Questions phase, I had considerably related questions from two listeners with reference to dad and mom and household, and I believed it is likely to be worthwhile to mix them for just a little meditation on these essential relationships in our lives. Listener Kerrie requested, if an individual has a lifelong battle of wills with a mother or father, which transits will point out a shift in that dynamic?

And listener Marlene needs to know if it’s true the idea that our soul makes a contract to decide on our dad and mom and household to reincarnate, why did I select my household? I’ve solely discovered lies, deception, manipulation, verbal aggression. How might I cope with these emotions of exclusion and abandonment? Properly, Kerrie and Marlene, thanks very a lot for these questions and I’m going to start with the one which’s maybe just a little tougher.

Marlene’s query I feel is a philosophical slightly than a strictly astrological query. The situation of sure planets and homes in your start chart can definitely give us a perspective on these sorts of challenges that you just discover with the individuals in your life. And it appears affordable to ask, if we do select our households, why would we appear to decide on ones which might be hurtful?

I suppose my tackle that might be that whereas I definitely haven’t any downside believing that we make what I would name soul contracts with individuals to incarnate and work out previous points with one another for instance.  That doesn’t essentially imply that we’re selecting to be in painful and harmful households or other forms of relationships as a result of that might assume that these hurtful individuals had been destined to be that manner, and I truthfully imagine anyone has the potential to make the selection to be type and trustworthy slightly than misleading, manipulative, or verbally aggressive, which was Marlene’s expertise.

Her members of the family don’t seem to have made the loving alternative, and that could possibly be owing to numerous elements. Her dad and mom might need been proven that sort of instance by their very own dad and mom. They might have lived by terrible experiences. Now, none of that is an excuse to deal with others poorly. However in any occasion, if we’re being handled poorly by dad and mom, household, companions, bosses, whoever it’s, Then, in the end, we face a alternative of our personal to stay in an lively relationship with these individuals or to restrict our ties with them.

Which brings us, roughly, to Kerrie’s query. If in case you have a lifelong battle of wills with a mother or father, particularly, what’s the astrology that we might search for to possibly shift that dynamic right into a sort of a detente? And that is true additionally of an excessive instance like Marlene’s, when is it the correct time to face again or to in any other case shift issues?

Contemplating the astrology of this, dad and mom are symbolized within the start chart by a number of symbols. The fourth and tenth homes, the ruling planets of the indicators on these homes. The Solar, and Saturn, and the Moon. Siblings could be symbolized particularly by the third home, its ruling planet, and Mercury. So, let’s say {that a} heavy transiting planet, resembling Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, or Pluto, and even an eclipse, is connecting with the cusp of your chart’s fourth or tenth homes, Or, possibly making a sq. to that axis.

These are transits that can are inclined to carry issues to a important level, the place issues can presumably attain a brand new stage of understanding. Now to get there, there would possibly very nicely be a giant battle first. That brings issues into the open and clears the air. The identical might be true if these sorts of transits are connecting with the Solar, Moon, or Saturn in your start chart.

These might be vital in serving to you resolve how you’ll insist on being handled. That is very true with the Solar, or in the event that they’re connecting with the Moon, how a lot it is advisable to defend your self or others in your life, resembling your partner or your kids.

And likewise, very importantly, to take duty for the circumstances and create essential boundaries.  That’s the work of Saturn. And please discover that I stated duty and never blame. They’re not the identical factor. We at all times have the flexibility to reply in a state of affairs – that doesn’t imply we’re accountable for it.

In conditions the place two individuals are having an influence wrestle, I just like the analogy of a tug of struggle. To ensure that the battle to proceed, each individuals need to hold pulling actually exhausting in reverse instructions on their finish of the rope. So generally it’s so simple as simply letting go of your facet of the rope, dropping it, refusing to interact. That is likely to be seen in a transit of Neptune or Pluto, for instance, that are very efficient for serving to us give up the ego and to let go of previous patterns.

Kerrie and Marlene, I hope that that helps. These had been just a little extra philosophical than a few of my different listener questions and I loved answering them, however a few of that is simply my opinion, so be at liberty to reject no matter doesn’t suit your specific state of affairs. Now, should you, Invisible Buddy, have a query you’d like me to reply on a future episode, simply depart a message of 1 minute or much less at speakpipe.com/bigskyastrologypodcast.
