Writing this with the Moon void of course in information junkie Gemini, where it will likely drift aimlessly in search of idle conversation and trivia until 11:36PM ET. Chill, chill, chill! If you are new to this forecast and are unfamiliar with Moon voids, here’s an older post with thoughts on how to handle them — worth digging out of the archives.
The big astro-logical shift today is the Sun leaving airy, cerebral Libra for the watery, emotional depths of Scorpio (exact at 2:10AM ET). Theories just won’t cut it; Scorpio demands substance. Mention Scorpio to those who know just enough about astrology to be dangerous, and they may run screaming down the hall. Perhaps they find Scorpio’s natural bent for power and control intimidating. Per pioneering astrologer Linda Goodman, “Scorpios build all the way up to Heaven and all the way down to the Hell. That’s what makes them so…interesting.” Interesting, indeed. And fiercely loyal and protective of what and whom they love. Even when they’re in one of their moody bastard modes.
Please be careful in your travels today. Yesterday, two emergency airplane landings made headlines. Mercury retrograde and today’s Moon void suggests a higher than average potential for flaky people behind the wheel. Plus we’re starting to feel the dreamy influence of nebulous Neptune’s exact alignment with Sun on Friday, suggesting an urge to merge with a higher consciousness or escape into some other rarefied, intangible state (e.g., music, spirit or drug-induced fantasy). How appropriate, then, that a recent Gallup poll reveals that for the first time, a majority of Americans favor legalizing marijuana. If you’re inclined to sing about this statistic, here’s a list of “smokin’ songs about weed” that Billboard published on April 20th, a day after another planetary alignment with nebulous Neptune. Coincidence or conspiracy?
