Romance & Relationship Report
The FIRST QUARTER MOON occurs on Friday, April 12, 2019, at 3:06 PM EDT.
The First Quarter Moon occurs on Friday when the Sun in Aries forms a square with the Cancer Moon. There is a crisis theme surrounding any quarter Moon phase, as we feel compelled to take action. Shortly after, we are made aware of how our actions affect those close to us, perhaps through trial and error. Whatever project or initiative we began around the New Moon last week is now off the ground, and it may face its first obstacles.
This phase of the Moon occurs at 22 degrees and 35 minutes of Cancer square the Sun at 22 degrees and 35 minutes of Aries, affecting people born with personal planets and points at approximately 21 to 25 degrees of the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) most significantly.

This week: The Sun is in Aries; Mercury is in Pisces; Venus is in Pisces; Mars is in Gemini.
The Sun is in Aries from March 20-April 20. In Aries, the Sun is enthusiastic and spontaneous. We are motivated by the desire to conquer. We are more impulsive and we want to initiate. Aries is a sign that bounces back quickly–there is little shame with Aries. There are few, if any, apologies! Aries is brave and pioneering, and somewhat innocent. We are direct and rather uncomplicated in our needs, but we can also be short-sighted and lack the desire to plan ahead.
Mercury is in Pisces from February 10-April 17. When Mercury is in Pisces, our thinking processes are more visual, intuitive, and imaginative. We are especially attuned to the world of emotion, which colors both our thoughts and our communication style. We guess well, express ourselves with imagery, and make decisions intuitively. We are more attracted to consciousness-raising information.
Venus is in Pisces from March 26-April 20. Pisces never sees the world in black-and-white terms. Rather, Pisces sees all the colors of the rainbow. With the goddess of love in Pisces, our love is all-embracing, we are able to forgive and understand, we are seducible and seductive, and we show compassion to our partners. Venus in Pisces is tender and affectionate, although hard to reach nevertheless, as there is a longing for something that is hard to define and hard to satisfy. Borders and boundaries blur under Venus in Pisces. The shadow side of this position is allowing ourselves to be victimized or deluded, as well as evasiveness.
Mars is in Gemini from March 31-May 15. In Gemini, Mars is considerably more versatile and flexible–and considerably less determined and focused! Our interests become more diversified, possibly to the point of going off on so many tangents that we are scattered and ineffective.
Saturn transits Capricorn from December 19/20, 2017, to March 21, 2020; and then finishes up its transit from July 1 to December 17, 2020. Read about Saturn’s transit through Capricorn here.
Jupiter entered Sagittarius on November 8th, 2018, and transits the sign until December 2nd, 2019. Read more about the Jupiter in Sagittarius transit.
Uranus is in Taurus. Uranus first transited Taurus from May 15, 2018, to November 6, 2018, and is now consistently in the sign (since March 6th, 2019) until 2025/6. We approach money and personal possessions in new ways and learn how to free ourselves from certain material constraints. Innovative ways to make ourselves comfortable emerge. We’re less inhibited about expressing sensuality, self-love, body love, and pampering. We’re challenging what we previously valued during this cycle. There can be abrupt changes with money, valuables, possessions, and income that lead to a reshuffling of priorities or values. Income might come from non-traditional sources or ventures. We’re bringing progressive ideas to the world of business. New ways of doing business, as well as making, viewing, and handling money are likely. Income and the energy we put into making money can be variable.
Romance & Relationships
Venus is in Pisces from March 26-April 20, 2019. Like Aquarius, Pisces love is universal. However, Pisces draws no bounds in love. With Venus in Pisces, we have compassion (and perhaps attraction) for those who are left out, overlooked, or victimized. We are self-sacrificing, and we have a hard time setting up borders. The walls go down, we have a hard time saying no (especially if our compassion is engaged), but we are also prone to avoiding all that makes us feel uncomfortable. Wishful thinking is one expression of Venus in Pisces. We can too easily believe what we want to believe. People can be hard to pin down, and love is hard to define under this influence. Pisces never sees the world in black-and-white terms. Rather, Pisces sees all the colors of the rainbow. With the goddess of love in Pisces, our love is all-embracing, we are able to forgive and understand, we are seducible and seductive, and we show compassion to our partners. Venus in Pisces is tender and affectionate, although hard to reach nevertheless, as there is a longing for something that is hard to define and hard to satisfy. Borders and boundaries blur under Venus in Pisces. The shadow side of this position is allowing ourselves to be victimized or deluded, as well as evasiveness.
This week: On Tuesday and Wednesday, our senses are engaged and we prefer to see our relationships through a happy, spiritual, or romantic lens. Even so, this occurs when the Sun forms a square to Saturn, and we may be either swinging between an overly practical or realistic outlook to an overly unrealistic perspective, or we are seeing our relationships in an especially romantic light while other areas of life require a hard look. On Thursday and Friday, however, we’re seeing things for their imperfections, and it feels just fine to do so. We value a realistic view, as well as stability and steadiness in our social or love lives.
Venus, the Goddess of Love: Highlights in the Coming Week:
Venus in Pisces March 26-April 20. A martyr complex, a love for the underdog, a search for your soul mate: such are the experiences associated with the new cycle you’re now just beginning. A yen for soul-stirring romance, a weakness for the weak, and a tendency to idealize people and relationships … very aesthetic, very other-worldly.
Venus semi-square Uranus April 9. Uncertainty about the desire to be close to someone. Freedom versus closeness. A desire to experiment in the romance department may be fleeting and ultimately unsatisfying or frustrating.
Venus conjunct Neptune April 9-10. New and fresh beginnings on romantic levels characterize this transit. Heightened sensitivity to, and awareness of, beauty and spirituality. We are easily influenced, seducible and seductive, and given to strong powers of imagination. We are more attuned to the world of beauty and romance. Gentleness with others is the best way to harness this energy. A magical time on a romantic and social level, but it could also be a confusing or illusory influence as well. Psychic openness and compassion.
Venus sextile Saturn April 11-12. Relationships are stabilized and steady, although feelings are expressed reservedly, formally, or sparingly. A new sense of realism in existing partnerships. Relationships begun under this influence possess a distinctly practical theme, almost as if the partnership is a business endeavor.
Venus sextile Pluto April 13-14. Subtly powerful and uplifting time for romantic/sexual relationships. New insights into relationships and love. Strong attractions.
Venus square Jupiter April 14-15. We experience a strong desire for more pleasure in our lives, which can be excessive. Take care not to overstate your feelings or to set up unrealistic expectations in your partnerships. As well, take what your partner says with a grain of salt. There is no malicious intent involved, but feelings of elation can cloud our judgment, and we can promise more than we can deliver.
Venus conjunct Chiron April 22-23. Healing energy is brought to love relationships, and a new cycle begins. A commitment-friendly transit. Love can heal old wounds. We are open to romantic feelings, and more willing to act upon them. This is a good time to make a resolution to repair, heal, and improve relationships.
The Moon & Timing
The Void of Course Moon is the period of time after the Moon has made its last aspect in one sign until the Moon enters a new sign. During the Void of Course Moon periods, it is generally wise to stick to routine rather than to begin new projects. The last aspect the Moon makes before changing signs is indicated here and is indicative of the “outcome” of the matter (whether that is a new project begun before the void period or the answer to a question in Horary Astrology).
Void of Course in Horary Astrology: If you were asking a question and making a chart for the answer, as you do in Horary astrology, it is said that since the Moon is not looking forward to any more aspects in this sign, you would have to say that the answer is not forthcoming; any questions asked at this time would not come to pass. The Moon being Void is one of the Strictures against Judgment in Horary Astrology. The following tables incorporate the modern planets, but some astrologers do not count Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto in void Moon calculations.
The Void-of-Course Moon this Week:
Void-of-course Moon on Monday, April 8th, from 4:29 AM EDT, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a trine to Pluto), until the Moon enters Gemini at 5:15 PM EDT.
VOC Moon on Wednesday, April 10th, from 1:27 PM EDT, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (an opposition to Jupiter), until the Moon enters Cancer at 11:31 PM EDT.
VOC Moon on Friday, April 12th, from 7:33 PM EDT, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a trine to Mercury), until the Moon enters Leo the next day, Saturday, April 13th, at 3:50 AM EDT.
Timing with the Moon – Better Periods this Week for Electing New Initiatives
This week, the Moon is waxing this week – a period that is generally considered favorable for new beginnings with exceptions. (See Best Time to Start a Business for more details).
According to principles of timing with the Moon, a window of opportunity occurs this week from Saturday, April 6th, at approximately 9:10 AM EDT, until Monday, April 8th, at approximately 4:25 AM EDT, while the Moon is in Taurus. Another window occurs on Friday, April 12th, from approximately 5:00 to 7:30 PM EDT, while the Moon is in Cancer. Another excellent period occurs from Saturday, April 13th, from approximately 8:15 AM EDT, to Sunday, April 14th, at approximately 9:35 PM EDT, while the Moon is in Leo. Note that if you start something before Sunday at 9:40 AM EDT, it’s an even better period since the Sun applies to Jupiter until then.

This Week’s Calendar
This Week’s Aspects
Mercury sextile Saturn. A good time to get organized, to do detail work, and to prepare for the future. Decisions made now tend to be practical and well thought out. Work done now will have tangible results in the future.
Mars sesquiquadrate Saturn. We are called upon to solve problems, or our plans and efforts meet with resistance. Circumstances seem to block our efforts to assert ourselves. Patience is necessary now, although frustration is very likely. It can feel like more effort than usual is required to complete tasks.
Venus semi-square Uranus. Unusual attractions (to people and things) can have us acting on a whim. We may deal with freedom versus closeness issues in our relationships. Avoid impulse buys at this time, and hold off on decision-making with regards to finances. Some instability, restlessness, and rebelliousness is probable in romantic relationships. We may not see eye to eye with a loved one, and we could be taken off guard by unexpected events. This is not a favorable aspect for beauty treatments because they could have unexpected results.
Venus conjunct Neptune. New and fresh beginnings on creative levels characterize this transit. Heightened sensitivity to, and awareness of, beauty and spirituality. We are easily influenced, seducible and seductive, and given to strong powers of imagination. We are more attuned to the world of beauty and romance today. Gentleness with others is the best way to harness this energy. A “magical” time on a romantic and social level, but it could also be a confusing or illusory influence as well. Psychic openness and compassion.
Sun square Saturn. As we face obstacles to our goals, we begin to see the tools with which we have to overcome them. A heavy dose of realism seems forced upon us under this influence, but our efforts to measure up to expectations can ultimately increase our confidence in our ability to be responsible for ourselves. This influence is a somber one.
Mercury sextile Pluto. We possess more insight and psychological understanding than usual. We are willing to look beyond the surface of things and investigate further. Perhaps more importantly, we are more patient and strategic in our decision-making.
Mercury square Jupiter. Information overload is possible today. It is all too easy to miss or neglect important details. We may exaggerate, have a hard time putting our ideas to practical use, or overstate under this influence. This is an unfavorable transit for travel. Our ideas and plans may be too grandiose just now. We could have a hard time convincing others of our point of view, and we could too easily jump to conclusions. There could be a lot of talk about nothing. Lack of clear mental focus, but we may make measurable progress if we can concentrate.
Mars sesquiquadrature Pluto. Our desires are intense and difficult to satisfy under this influence. A tendency to bully and confront may dominate. Efforts to make changes could be thwarted, or power struggles emerge. The trick is to remain flexible and to develop strategies for achieving our goals.
Venus sextile Saturn. Affections stabilize and mature. Relationships are stabilized and steady, although feelings are expressed reservedly, formally, or sparingly. A new sense of realism in existing partnerships comes now. Small advances can be made in business and in partnerships. Support from older people or authority figures may come by way of solid advice or tangible help. Renewed ties to old friends are possible, or a new sense of responsibility in existing friendships.
Sun square Pluto. Insubordination and abuse of power. Impatience with rules. Compulsiveness. The urge to get to the bottom of matters is with us, but we are too insistent. Avoid beating a dead horse and attempting to force matters that should naturally take time to unfold. Circumstances now can push us to discover our own power–power that comes from a strong sense of self rather than superficial energy derived from manipulating people into doing what we want them to do. Events may occur now that highlight the need to trust.
Note: Times given in the table/calendar above are Eastern Time (ET).

Mercury forms a sextile to Saturn this morning, grounding our thinking and expectations. This is the third and final pass after Mercury and Saturn returned to this aspect while Mercury was retrograde last month. We are mentally prepared, desiring more order and organization in our lives. Decisions made now tend to be practical and well thought out. A Mars-Saturn minor square later today suggests some stop-and-go energy nevertheless. Circumstances seem to block our efforts to assert ourselves. Patience is necessary now, as we’re drawn to solving problems, but it can be challenging to get to a solution if we rush too quickly toward it. The key will be to avoid pushing something that needs more time. The Moon spends the day in the sign of Taurus.
The Moon continues its transit of Taurus until 5:15 PM EDT, from which time it transits Gemini. The Gemini Moon stimulates our curiosity and desire to share and interact. While this may not be the most productive of days in a material sense, it can be a good time for coming to a new understanding of a problem or difficulty, and for opening ourselves up to change and healing. Unresolved feelings or issues are in focus now. This is a day for identifying what needs to be done for us to grow and improve, as well as for sharing, learning, healing, helping, and teaching. We can feel especially compelled to work on problem areas, and we’re willing to break through barriers.
The Moon is void from 4:29 AM EDT, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a trine to Pluto), until the Moon enters Gemini at 5:15 PM EDT.
The Moon spends the day in Gemini all day, aligning with Mars this morning, keeping our minds in motion. It may not be easy to concentrate today, but it can be a fine time for picking up interesting information. We suffer no shortage of ideas now, but it may be difficult to decide between them. Our thoughts might race, and we can be very quick (possibly too fast) to respond and react. Venus and Neptune are heading into alignment, exact early tomorrow and inspiring our imagination, although the Sun and Saturn are moving toward a square aspect. We have the chance to heal our personal relationships now, or at least to make a resolution to do so. Psychic openness and compassion are strong feelings in our social life. We are easily influenced, seducible and seductive, and especially compassionate. We are more attuned to the world of beauty and romance and inclined to see things we want to see. On the other hand, the Sun-Saturn square skews our perceptions to the negative or technical, and either way, we do not see things clearly now.
Jupiter stations and begins its retrograde period today (which lasts until August 11th). During this retrograde, we tend to re-think our goals and plans in the areas of life affected by Jupiter’s transit. It’s a time of questioning what we thought we already knew and developing a new perspective on events and beliefs. Recognizing areas of excess or extravagance can help us. We may need to slow down specific endeavors if they’ve been moving too quickly, or this happens organically. Some enthusiasm may wane as certain realities of time and energy set in. With Jupiter stationary today, we are inclined toward a fair amount of longing and idealism. Mercury’s sextile to Pluto today can bring new awareness to a matter that we’ve recently researched. We might arrive at valuable truths or insights, or we gain a deeper understanding of a situation. We might discover new information that gives us an edge or finally “see” the truth of a matter that we’ve been avoiding. It’s a good time to let go of something that has kept us bound or stuck in a difficult situation. The Moon spends most of the day in the sign of Gemini, only entering Cancer tonight at 11:31 PM EDT.
The Moon is void from 1:27 PM EDT, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (an opposition to Jupiter), until the Moon enters Cancer at 11:31 PM EDT.
The Moon spends the day in Cancer. We seek out familiarity, safety, and quiet with the Cancer Moon. We’re influenced by a Mercury-Jupiter square aspect that perfects shortly into the day tomorrow. We can feel rushed to make a decision when it may be better to wait. Our ideas are big, but we may jump to conclusions or speak on a matter too soon. There is a tendency to overstate, say too much, exaggerate, or latch onto wild ideas. However, if we can use this energy to stretch our minds to entertain new ideas and to wait on putting these ideas into action, this can be a helpful influence.
While a Venus-Saturn sextile today helps stabilize us and boosts the appeal of the ordinary and reliable, both Mars and the Sun are in hard aspect to Pluto, ramping up tensions. We’re likely to recognize the need for change but may be putting too much pressure on ourselves to make it happen, or instead, we’re doing whatever we can to dig in our heels and resist. Either way can be problematic now. Accumulated anger, emotional slush, and resentment may emerge in a disruptive manner. We’re inclined to feel at battle both with ourselves and others, as putting faith and trust in people and perhaps life itself can be difficult today. There can be a tendency to want to manipulate or connive to get what we want now. It’s better to draw upon self-control and wait things out to gain some perspective. The Moon spends the day in the sign of Cancer.
The Moon is void from 7:33 PM EDT, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a trine to Mercury), until the Moon enters Leo the next day, Saturday, April 13th, at 3:50 AM EDT.
The Sun-Pluto square perfects this morning, and trusting in others (or in life/the process) can be difficult. This aspect is strong for identifying areas of over-attachment, but we may find it difficult to let go and unwind while it’s active. It’s important to avoid trying to force matters that should naturally take time to unfold. As the day advances, however, we approach a Sun-Jupiter trine that encourages our desire to grow, expand, improve, and impress. In contrast, this aspect helps to build up our faith. Whether it’s a business venture, friendship, attitude, or relationship, we want to bring it to a new level. Optimism and confidence are core elements in the energy of this transit. Enthusiasm runs high, and cooperation comes readily.
The Moon continues its void period until it enters Leo today at 3:50 AM EDT.

Moon Signs This Week:
When the Moon is in Taurus
We are motivated by the desire for serenity, security, peace, and comfort. The Moon is at her most sensual and constant in Taurus. Our basic impulses are to relax, resist change, and "stop to smell the roses". Life slows down a little, and we get comfortable. We may also be inclined to stubbornness and materialism under this influence.
The Moon in Taurus generally favors the following activities: Substantial and material actions that yield solid results. Financial activities, and those involving personal possessions, applying for a loan, beginning a potentially long-term relationship, music, home decor.
When the Moon is in Gemini
Our basic instinct is to communicate, think, and learn under the influence of Moon in Gemini. We are motivated by a desire for variety and by an instinctive curiosity. The Moon in Gemini is light-hearted, breezy, and curious, but it can also be restless and fickle.
The Moon in Gemini generally favors the following activities: Mental and communicative actions, and more than one activity at once. Reading, learning, letters and emails, errands, writing, teaching, making connections, short trips.
When the Moon is in Cancer
The restlessness of the Gemini Moon gives way to an instinctive need for peace and quiet. A feeling of belonging and safety is what motivates us under this influence. The Moon feels right at home in the sign of Cancer, as it rules the sign. This Moon position has much healing potential. Although insular by nature, our feelings run deep, making it an ideal time to get in touch with what motivates us.
The Moon in Cancer generally favors the following activities: Domestic activities, those that involve awareness of personal needs. Home decor, family get-togethers.
When the Moon is in Leo
The Moon in Leo speaks to our "inner child". It's a warm, generous, whole-heartedly loving position. Pride keeps us from pettiness, but it can also prevent us from opening up and revealing how we are truly feeling. We are on stage, our feelings are grand, and we appreciate some drama in our lives. We are easily threatened by anything that seems to be impersonal. This is a time when we seek attention--when we want to stand out for our special qualities. It's a strong time for romance and any creative activity as well.
The Moon in Leo generally favors the following activities: Creative activities, activities involving children, generous undertakings, undertakings in which personal recognition is desired, and risk-taking.
Upcoming Weeks: Calendars
THIS WEEK’S PLANETARY POSITIONS BY SIGN (General Trends):
Sun in Aries A new sense of self, a more assertive personal style, a more dynamic approach to life: these are the hallmarks of the cycle that begins for you now. Doubts fade into the background, and reserve is more and more a thing of the past. It’s time for action; your destiny is in your hands, rather than set apart. Full speed ahead (“and damn the torpedoes”) is your motto now, for better or for worse!
Mercury in Pisces Knowing things without knowing how you know them is typical at a time like this. The mystical, the universal, the eternal: these are the things that stir your curiosity. Call it psychic, call it deja vu … it can be there when you call on it, whatever you call it. (Remembering the little things might become more difficult, however: it’s tough to remember if you paid the electric bill when you’re more interested in the eternal verities.)
Venus in Pisces A martyr complex, a love for the underdog, a search for your soul mate: such are the experiences associated with the new cycle you’re now just beginning. A yen for soul-stirring romance, a weakness for the weak, and a tendency to idealize people and relationships … very aesthetic, very other-worldly.
Mars in Gemini Learning, communicating, the exchange of ideas: these are the experiences you crave as a means to make your mark now, as a new phase begins in your life. You’re a person with something to say, and you realize that others have information that is essential to your goals. A time of much mental energy and initiative … perhaps with an element of conflict tossed in for good measure.
Jupiter in Sagittarius Faith, optimism, and a yearning to explore all kinds of new horizons: these are some of the focal points in your life at this time. Travel, education, and other ways to stretch your horizons open new doors of opportunity. Religious, philosophical, and cultural matters are likely to have special appeal for you now; transmitting ideas on a broader scale brings gain.
Saturn in Capricorn Responsibility, hard work, ambition, and achievement: these are the foundations you need to build on now, as a new cycle dawns in your life. And yet, there is a tendency to be a little too hard, perhaps a bit cold, in your approach to these things. Let ambition take you to the top, but don’t let it lull you into thinking that the end justifies the means.
Uranus in Taurus Practicality and ingenuity combine as powerful drives in your life now that you have begun a new cycle. Taking innovative concepts and making them real and practical is your strong suit; getting stuck in the mud is to be avoided at all costs. Financial savvy, inventiveness, worldly genius.
Neptune in Pisces Things spiritual and psychic take the driver’s seat of your imagination as you begin a new cycle. The fine arts and all manner of fantasies assume a larger-than-life importance. Surrendering to fate, karma, and other powers greater than merely mortal may be seen as the ultimate liberation. If all is Maya (illusion), what is the reality that gives rise to the world of appearances?
Pluto in Capricorn As this new phase dawns for you, the pursuit of social/political power and status has a way of seeming necessary and inevitable – and let nothing stand in its way. It starts out small but has bigger consequences than you’d think. Ambition, responsibility, a place for everyone and everyone in their place…
