Continue planting the seeds for your New Moon agenda, in which you declare yourself a warrior-champion for a noble cause. We’ve got another full day of Moon in Taurus, which is happy to help you organize and build the structures require to give form to your ideas. Keep chugging along, checking off tasks from your to-do list, and enjoy the rewards a Friday night with Moon in Taurus can bring. Let the material comforts abound, be they wine, good food, song, a massage or snuggle with a special sweetie.
The biggest news on Friday is Pluto, Lord of the Underworld, beginning its annual five-month retrograde trek at 3:32PM ET. This turns Pluto’s purgative, transformational and empowering potential inward. In other words, work on cleaning up your own act instead of striving for power over something — or someone — else. This applies to collective efforts as well.
Pluto turns retrograde at 11 Capricorn, and the Sabian Symbol is “A student of nature lecturing”. Blain Bovee suggests we apply this symbol by noting a “wonderful, if surprising, source of newly-perceived information; information gathered through fresh eyes.” With two exact Uranus-Pluto squares due to hit during this Pluto retrograde, we will have plenty of opportunities to change our perspective based on startling new information. You will feel Pluto’s urge to purge more personally if you have a planet or point around 11 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn….or if you were born around the 1st of April, July, October and January. Not only that, but you should seriously consider booking an appointment with your local astrologer, as you are in the cosmic hot seat for the rest of the year. I’d be very surprised if you are not experiencing major life challenges and opportunities for empowerment right about now.
Saturday is another day of light aspects. Moon goes briefly void at 8:30AM ET and enters chatty Gemini at 10:13AM. A communicative connection with mental Mercury suggests news and conversations may pull focus. At 7:26PM ET there’s a dreamy/spacey challenge between the verbally-oriented Gemini Moon and nebulous Neptune, which may result in a few crossed lines of wires, or a need for an intangible escape. Saturday’s biggest news is mental Mercury finally — and I do mean FINALLY — leaving watery Pisces, where it’s been lingering since February 6th. At 10:37PM ET, Mercury zooms into Aries, suggesting mindset and communications become more impulsive, sharp, impassioned and impatient than the dreamy, empathetic flow we’ve experienced for the past two months.
Sunday starts off with a buzz, with optimism ballooning to a climax at 2:57PM ET, courtesy of a jolly hook-up between Moon and Jupiter. Sounds entertaining and informative to me, and in fact, that is what I plan to do that day — be entertained by a clever one-man show.
Back to you in the studio….
