Eclipse Hangover

This week’s Most cancers First Quarter Moon (April 15, 2024, 12:13 pm PDT) alerts the “take motion” level within the lunar cycle that started with the Aries New Moon/Photo voltaic Eclipse (April 8). The large whoosh of power that got here from that eclipse could have been overwhelming on the time – however now that we’ve had per week to catch our breath, the First Quarter Moon might deliver a lift of power and a few tentative options to take care of the eclipse hangover.

It’s additionally the First Quarter in a lunar section household cycle that started on the July 17, 2023 Most cancers New Moon. On the time, I wrote, This New Moon is in Most cancers, the signal of nurturing, finds the Solar and Moon opposed control-loving Pluto. Whether or not you’re making a human or bringing a challenge to fruition, it’s important to take care of the boundaries of your management. Whether or not you’re keen on a pet, plant a backyard, or construct a house, there are a variety of issues that may go mistaken. However this New Moon gives a easy message: Nonetheless scary, futile, menacing, or hopeless it appears to take action, give start to one thing. Nourish somebody. Nurture the life pressure. Do all the pieces that’s inside your energy – and study to let go of what isn’t.”

On the Most cancers First Quarter on this lunar section household, the Most cancers Moon and Aries Solar are extensively opposed and sq. Pluto, respectively, we’re nonetheless testing the boundaries of our energy and management. And on the First Quarter Moon, we should refuse to be outlined by the boundaries of worry.

The Moon, Solar, and Pluto are constellated in a nerve-racking t-square side within the cardinal indicators of Most cancers, Aries, and Capricorn. Libra is the one cardinal signal not occupied by a planet – the one one with out a canine within the battle – so the protected haven when issues get too nerve-racking this week lies in Libran pursuits: artwork, music, having fun with our companion, and sustaining stability. 

The Empty Hammock

Venus conjoined the Moon’s North Node in Aries (April 17, 2024, 11:46 am PDT, 15.34 Aries) generally is a transit that brings necessary new associates or companions into your orbit – particularly when you have factors in your chart near 15º Aries, Most cancers, Libra, or Capricorn.

The conjunction at 15º34’ Aries is on the Sabian image 16 Aries: Brownies dancing within the setting solar. Cherish these magical folks in your life who encourage you to provoke motion, take dangers, and discover new paths; they’re the “brownies” who’re dancing you in the precise route. And Mercury’s conjunction with Venus (April 19, 2024, 1:59 am PDT, 17º32′ Aries) on the image 18 Aries: An empty hammock, is a reminder that new folks, new voices, and new concepts will maintain you from losing your days mendacity round, when there’s a lot pondering and dancing and dwelling to be performed!


The Solar enters Taurus (April 19, 2024, 7:00 am PDT) on the Sabian image 1 Taurus, A transparent mountain stream. Taurus season represents a contemporary, cleaning transition from the hectic tempo of Aries month; it’s nearly like a baptism.

After I was small, we used to journey over the river on Sundays to a park in southern Illinois, the place we’d have a picnic in the identical bucolic setting. Practically each time, there have been baptisms going down within the small stream working by the park. I keep in mind eager to wade within the stream on one in every of as of late, and asking my Taurus mom, “If I do, will I get baptized?” “No, it’s important to ask for that,” was her wise reply.

After we stroll into Taurus’ stream, will we get cleaned up or baptized? It’s a fairly down-to-earth signal, however this yr’s Taurus season brings the Solar nearly instantly right into a sq. side with Pluto (April 21, 2024, 10:02 am PDT) – that’s a planet of deep-cleaning, inside and outside. So I suppose the reply is… each? We will do our spring home cleansing, however there’s the possibility for a bit non secular sprucing up as nicely. All we now have to do is ask for it.

The Solely Flawed Factor is Nothing

The large information of this week – and to some extent, of this yr – is the conjunction of Jupiter and Uranus at 21º49’ Taurus (April 20, 2024, 7:27 pm PDT). Their final conjunction befell over three precise points, in June and September 2010, and Jan. 2011.

Did one thing significantly thrilling develop in your life round that point? Some useful piece of fine fortune that appeared to leap from nowhere? That might auger nicely on your expertise of this conjunction. It’s going down in a special a part of your chart (final time it was within the final levels of Pisces and the primary diploma of Aries), however the magic will probably be related.

Jupiter isn’t precisely Santa Claus, however it does amplify and convey an additional twist of fine luck to no matter it touches – principally the type of luck that comes from sustaining good cheer, optimism, and the willingness to take a danger. Uranus, for its half, brings unpredictability, the sudden, and generally radical modifications. Astrologer Steven Forrest’s take was – and I’m paraphrasing – that at this conjunction, Jupiter will deliver all types of fine fortune, if solely we’re keen to make the modifications that Uranus calls for.

Have you ever been feeling caught? Properly, right here’s your likelihood to get unstuck, and to maneuver in a optimistic new route. The day earlier than the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction, each of them obtain sextile points from Mars (April 19, 2024, 8:28 am and 4:56 pm PDT, respectively). This conjunction brings thrilling potentialities, however these sextiles from Mars remind us that we’ll get much more from it if we put forth a bit effort. Settle for invites, say “sure” to gives you’d usually decline, and since Mars is in Pisces, take heed to your instinct.

The conjunction of buoyant Jupiter and thrilling Uranus solely comes alongside each fourteen years. Don’t let it move you by! Beneath these distinctive situations, the one mistaken factor to do is nothing.
