Astrological Almanac for Friday, April 23, 2021
(All times Eastern)
At 7:48am, Mars enters Cancer, opposite his sign of exaltation. That means that he’s “in fall” until early-to-mid June. This placement can bring about feelings of passion and protectivity for those who are near and dear to you. But it can also bring about a sense of jealousy and a desire to fight about the wrong things, or at the wrong time. I can also sometimes frustrate our ability to fight and defend, given that watery Cancer only partially supports Mars’ fiery energy.
All day long, Mercury builds toward conjoining Uranus (exact after midnight), which can make our minds especially acute and unorthodox right now, especially regarding earth-based things (food, physical structures, health, comfort, art/beauty, etc.).
The only lunar aspect occurs late tonight, but we’ll feel the Moon’s opposition to Neptune growing throughout the day. This is somewhat of an opposite aspect to the Mercury-Uranus conjunction in that it removes clarity and adds confusion.
The takeaway is that folks with planets/points in early-to-mid fixed signs (Taurus and Scorpio principally) are likely to experience the more positive effects, while those with planets/points in mid-to-late mutable signs (Virgo and Pisces principally) are likely to get the dreamy, confused, weird-dream dose of things.
