Saturday, APRIL 17
It’s an astrologically busy day. The Mars-Jupiter trine perfects early today, and later morning, the Moon aligns with Mars and forms a trine to Jupiter, effectively extending its influence a little longer. It’s energetic, can-do energy. Mercury forms a sextile to Jupiter and Mars, and we’re mentally engaged, ready to take on new ideas and share them. We’re enthusiastic.
However, it’s complicated, as Mercury forms a square to Pluto, and Mars is moving toward a quincunx to Pluto as well. While Mercury-Jupiter helps us put things into perspective, its square to Pluto can introduce some suspicious and perhaps somewhat paranoid thinking. Transits today might encourage us to reach beyond our usual boundaries. There can be some tension if we insist on trying to find the truth of a matter. These transits encourage resourcefulness, but as zealous as we may be to communicate our message, there can be difficulties getting it through flowingly. We can be especially alert and observant. We may quickly get to the point or a decision/conclusion.
With the Mars-Pluto quincunx, feelings of competitiveness or anger can be difficult to manage or understand, especially since they may be displaced or unresolved. It’s best to avoid forcing issues. The Moon continues its transit of connected Gemini until 3:26 PM, after which the Moon is in protective Cancer.
The void Moon occurs from 11:03 AM EDT, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a sextile to the Sun), until the Moon enters Cancer at 3:26 PM EDT.
