An Opportunity to Grow


This week’s headline items: Pluto remains exalted all week; Mercury, now in its retrograde phase, continues its Station phase until Friday; the first Quarter Moon in Leo becomes exact on Thursday afternoon; Mercury ends its Station phase on Friday (remaining retrograde until May 14th).


There will be three Moon Void of Course (VoC) phases this week: Monday morning (for a little over 6.5 hours), Wednesday evening (for almost 7 hours), and Saturday morning (for a little over 8 hours).


Now, this week’s Forecast…


Monday, April 24th:

Monday, the Moon remains in chatty, versatile Gemini until 2:58pm EDT. Until that time, we like to learn, connect, and interact as much as possible.

“Busy” feels good: connecting online, on the phone, or sharing face-to-face, preferably multi-tasking all the way… The one thing we can do without is boredom: If our mind is not engaged in some way, we might as well curl up and play dead …

Monday morning, around 7am EDT, the Sun aligns with the North Node in 4º of TaurusWe have been feeling this alignment from last week, Friday (April 21st) on, and it will still feel quite strong until this Thursday (April 27th). It calls on us to become more aware of our personal physical reality (i.e. our body and resources) and the connection we have with our planet.

When we learn to have a healthy relationship with our body and this planet, we can experience more abundance and greater trust in our intrinsic value, and thus feel more fulfilled and satisfied with our lives. It will pay to take a practical approach, and allow ourselves to learn about alternative material resources, or gather resources that allow us to better enjoy this physical reality; the same is true of any flexible earning strategies.

Ask yourself: What simple step could I take to be more realistically connected to my body, finances, and talents? Could I allow myself to not get attached to one specific outcome? Where could I learn about “healthy” financial skills? What might be possible if I truly honored myself and my physical experience, allowing myself to see my value, every day, no matter what?

Feel free to read more about the Moon Nodes in Taurus-Scorpio in this article here.

Do you have your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo? If so, you will feel more influenced by this alignment. If you are a Taurus Sun-sign or Rising-sign, for as long as the Sun and the North Node are in your sign, you may very well feel a strong need to honor & love yourself and connect to your body and the Earth — in fact, this is about setting a healthy example for others.

Monday morning, at 8:15am EDT, we enter a Moon VoC that will last for a little over 6.5 hours, until 2:58pm EDT. Use this intuitive time to make some adjustments — you may also need to do a little stretching and growing when it comes to your inner or emotional experiences. As best as you can, be gentle with yourself and others, and seek to understand before seeking to be understood.

As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don’t start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Monday morning until the afternoon ahead of time.

Monday afternoon, at 2:58pm EDT, the Moon enters protective, nurturing Cancer, where it will journey until Thursday very early morning. With this Moon placement, we are more sensitive to what people say and therefore our feelings are more easily hurt — so be kind to yourself and others. Self-Care is key for the next two days

Emotional safety is important to us as well; we like connecting to the familiar and we enjoy nurturing ourselves and others — home and family call to us, for instance. Make sure though, that your glass is filled before letting others drink from it, otherwise you might start to feel drained and resentful.
