Friday, APRIL 29
Pluto turns retrograde and will remain retrograde until October 8th. This station and shift of direction tends to bring about some initial confusion, heaviness, and magnification of problems. However, Pluto’s retrograde cycle itself is an excellent period for research and gaining new insight into our self-destructive tendencies, control needs, and search for the truth by looking within. Outward pressures may ease somewhat during this period. Over the coming months, we may be reassessing how we use our power.
The Sun forms a semi-square with Neptune today, and there may be some indecision or listlessness. Our willpower may not be as strong as usual as we stray from our goals and temporarily lose focus. This aspect serves as a gentle reminder to consider our needs for downtime, fantasy, or spiritual refreshment. On this day before a New Moon Solar Eclipse, it makes sense to wind down.
As well today, Mercury moves into Gemini. This cycle lasts until May 22nd, but due to Mercury’s upcoming retrograde cycle (from May 10th to June 3rd), Mercury will later return to Gemini from June 13th to July 5th. Mercury rules Gemini and is exceptionally comfortable in the sign. This transit piques our curiosity and motivates us to reach out, learn, and share.
The void Moon occurs from 5:38 PM EDT, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a square to Pluto), until the Moon enters Taurus at 8:19 PM EDT.
