You’re waking up to the Moon void-of-course in Taurus — as of 8:28PM ET last night until 5:21PM ET today, suggesting a day of rest, wandering around and/or taking care of that which is routine. Yes, there was a New Moon yesterday, but I’d wait until the Moon is no longer void to launch an important initiative, make a major purchase or sign a contract. This void has not stopped many of my Facebook friends from changing their profile pictures — a perfectly suitable creative brainstorming activity for a void. Fascinating.
When the Moon does enter Gemini at 5:21PM ET, you may note the shift from a sensual, earthy, material focus to a that which is mental, airy and chatty. Got something you need to talk about? This need for information, entertainment and communication carries us through the weekend. Planetary patterns are fairly light, excluding the never-ending challenge between rebel Uranus and ruthless Pluto, which continues to shake up the status quo. In your own personal world, you’re more likely to be influenced by the lovely hook-up between Venus and the clever Moon at 8:49PM ET , which puts a pleasurable spin on your Friday night plans.
Saturday features an intense and idealistic hook-up between mental Mercury and the Sun in Taurus, exact at 5:10PM. What values, possessions and issues of self-worth and material comfort/security will you find yourself experiencing with those rose-colored glasses on, eh? Going shopping for articles of beauty, perhaps? Saturday is the day for shopping, as the Moon will be void all day on Sunday. If you’re not in a buying mood for art or beauty, chances are you’ll be wanting to experience it.
Rose is also the color of a dreamy challenge between Venus (women, social expression, art, money) and nebulous Neptune, which is exact on Monday at 4:48PM ET, but still influential over the weekend. And what a perfect aspect it is for one idealized vision of women celebrated on Sunday, otherwise known as Mothers’ Day. Go ahead and put Mom on a pedestal with the jovial enthusiasm suggested by Sunday’s 9:32AM ET hook-up between the charming Gemini Moon and jolly Jupiter, which is when the Moon goes void of course until Monday at 5:57AM ET — another day of rest.
I will fill you in on yesterday’s New Moon and eclipse when the Moon is no longer void-of-course. Chill, baby, chill.
