Astrological Almanac for Saturday, April 10, 2021

(All times Eastern) Mercury sextiles Saturn and Venus sextiles Jupiter today. The sextile is a gentle aspect, as long as the planets are of a cooperative nature, and both of these combinations fit that. Especially after the Moon-Mars-Neptune contacts of the past couple of days, we may feel that our thinking and planning skills are clearing up and are focused more on logic than on intuition and ephemeral things. This will grow as the day goes on and the Moon moves to sextile Saturn while conjoining Mercury after midnight. Any social awkwardness from the energy drain is likely to dissipate Read more…

Lunar Mansion 28

(All times Eastern) On April 9 at 1:12 am ET the Moon enters Mansion 28 (Batn al-Hut “The Belly of the Fish”), from 17º Pisces 8′ to 0º Aries. According to the medieval grimoire Picatrix: Associated image for magic/meditation: a fish Beneficial actions: increasing merchandise, besieging cities, increasing harvets, clearing an area, destroying what you want to, traveling safely by land, causing peace between spouses, reinforcing prisons

Astrological Almanac for Friday, April 9, 2021

(All times Eastern) Mars squares Neptune today, and with the Moon also conjoining Neptune (and thereby squaring Mars) in Pisces, indecisiveness and some conflicts or waffling on ideas may arise. Mars may have his energy drained by Neptune. If you have planets around 21 degrees of mutable signs (Pisces, Gemini, and also Virgo and Sagittarius), the energy drop might be dramatic, and if you are prone to low blood pressure, be aware that this might trigger that condition. This is likely to last another day or two, until Mars clears the square. This may feel like a real energy sink Read more…

Lunar Mansion 27

(All times Eastern) On April 8 at 12:36 am ET the Moon enters Mansion 27 (Al Fargh al-Thani “The Lower Spout”), from 4º Pisces 17′ to 17º Pisces 8′. According to the medieval grimoire Picatrix: Associated image for magic/meditation: a man with wings, holding an empty, broken cup or vessel Beneficial actions: increasing merchandise, gaining profit, bringing together allies, increasing harvests, healing, foiling the actions of others

Astrological Almanac for Thursday, April 8, 2021

(All times Eastern) The Pisces Moon cooperates with Uranus in Taurus this morning to make it easier to express our individuality. But given these signs, there is a gentle feel to it, rather than one of rebellion. She makes no further aspects today. We will feel the Mars-Neptune square building (exact tomorrow), and especially with the Moon in Pisces, this could emphasize indecisiveness and some conflicts of belief or ideas. Since Mars isn’t particularly strong in Gemini, he may suffer here by having his energy drained by Neptune, and we may all feel that. For those who have planets around Read more…

Lunar Mansion 26

(All times Eastern) On April 7 at 12:24 am ET the Moon enters Mansion 26 (Al Fargh al-Awwal “The Upper Spout”), from 21º Aquarius 25′ to 4º Pisces 17′. According to the medieval grimoire Picatrix: Associated image for magic/meditation: a woman washing her hair (usually in a bucket) Beneficial actions: binding together people in love, traveling safely by land, strengthening buildings, reinforcing prisons

Astrological Almanac for Wednesday, April 7, 2021

(All times Eastern) The Moon’s conjunction to Jupiter this morning gives the day a fairly optimistic outlook, focused on ideas and building things and systems. At 4:30pm, she enters Pisces, turning from the highly intellectual to the emotional and intuitive for the rest of the work week. She makes very few aspects today and tomorrow, so she’s not interrupted in her pursuit of empathy and compassion. But we may need to be extra aware of boundaries now, both emotional and physical. #dailystars #dailyastro #astrology #wheresthemoon

Lunar Mansion 25

(All times Eastern) On April 6 at 12:38 am ET the Moon enters Mansion 25 (Sa’d al-Akhbiyah “The Lucky Star of Hidden Things”), from 8º Aquarius 34′ to 21º Aquarius 25′. According to the medieval grimoire Picatrix: Associated image for magic/meditation: a man planting Beneficial actions: nurturing, planting, growing, besieging cities, attacking enemies, taking revenge, strengthening/securing prisons

Astrological Almanac for Tuesday, April 6, 2021

(All times Eastern) Venus sextiles Mars this morning, and those with planets or sensitive points around 15-25 degrees of just about any sign may feel this. The normally balance between active and receptive energies may lean toward the more outward and active now, since Venus is in Aries, a sign ruled by Mars. This can spark our energy and increase our “spring fever” a bit, since we may be attracted to all sorts of things and have the urge to jump in with both feet. The Moon joins Saturn this morning in Aquarius, so while there is a bit of Read more…
