Astro-logical Forecast for Tuesday 4/23/2013: A Healthy Balance
One day on; one day off — that’s the pattern this week. And once the Moon gets into gear in Libra at 3:25AM ET, this day is ON. Always one for seeing both sides of a debate and fond of rational discourse, this people-pleasing Libra Moon suggests a need to focus on integrity in relationship. Expansive, generous and inspirational ideas and communication is supported by a cooperative connection between mental Mercury in Aries and jolly Jupiter in Gemini.
This all sounds lovely for seeking peace and balance, with one caveat: the Libra Moon makes contact with the disruptive Uranus-Pluto square this evening (exact at 8:37PM ET and 11:25PM ET), suggesting the peace may be challenged by a sudden shock, revelation or power play. As I have written in prior forecasts, we can expect this jolt every week for the next two years, whenever the Moon is in Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn.
How can we handle periods of stress when it may feel like things are falling apart? For sage advice on this very subject, here’s a link to a lengthy but valuable excerpt from spiritual teacher Pema Chodron‘s book, appropriately titled: When Things Fall Apart.
In other news, during yesterday’s Moon in Virgo, a sign associated with the gut and other health issues, this eye-opening article about probable cause and potential solutions showed up on my Facebock feed. The corollary to this piece would be this: a 14-year-old fast-food hamburger that’s been making the news, most recently on the TV shows, The Doctors. What’s for lunch?
