Cosmic Calendar: The Latest
TUE APR 15 Ho-hum, just another ordinary day surviving on Spaceship Earth, correct? No way. As mentioned in this calendar during the past three days, a build-up of celestial tensions is playing itself out and human souls are caught in the crossfire between heavenly aspirations and hellish skirmishes a la Dante’s Inferno. The large-scale assault on humanity from Monday is still palpable as the Full Moon (activating 26 degrees of Aries and Libra at 12:43AM) takes place. Just four minutes later, the Full Moon morphs into a Total Lunar Eclipse – heightening this month’s solar-lunar crescendo for good or ill. In some circles, this Full Moon each year is related to Shamballa – the supposed, mythical Shangri-La of Eastern legends where the Will of God is known. However, is this actually myth or a reality that most human beings simply cannot see, imagine or intuit due to the over-materialization of our species over the millennia? Philosophy aside for the moment, this Full Moon also occurs very close to the largest asteroid Ceres as the Moon embraces this planetary body in a conjunction at 12:32AM. In your individual or group meditative work, send out your healing thoughts and prayers to humanity as well as the animal, plant, and mineral kingdoms that humanity ought to be serving and protecting. The Full Moon moment (12:43AM) also begins an 8+ hour void twilight zone that lasts until 9:21AM when the lunar orb shifts its allegiance from cardinal, airy Libra to fixed, watery Scorpio. During the void time-span, Ceres forms a supportive, 60-degree rapport with Pallas (2:07AM) – possibly enhancing your overall productivity and problem-solving skills. Later on, focus attention on improving your talents in a favorite art or craft as the Sun makes a 45-degree link to Venus (1:39PM). Accentuate peaceful communications while Mercury is locked into a dicey contra-parallel with Mars (5:22PM).
WED APR 16 It is time to breathe an enormous sigh of relief. If you are reading these words and taking some comfort from them, then it means you have hopefully weathered the cosmic-psychic storm that blew in during the last few days and are looking for additional guidance. Recall that the 48 hours after any Full Moon – and especially after the large number of alignments happening on both Monday and Tuesday – represent a two-day cycle to distribute the enlightening rays of divine inspiration that have come through to human minds and hearts eager to transform the Earth into a sacred planet in our solar system. Revelations abound early – courtesy of a Mercury-Uranus parallel (2:30AM). Ingenious ideas are ripe and ready to be picked off the intuition-expanding vine. However, some of the recent turbulent celestial forces don’t know when to quit as Mercury opposes Mars (4:16AM) while the red planet also forms an off-kilter, 150-degree tie with wounded-healer Chiron (10:05AM). Despite apparent roadblocks and frustrations that may develop from these two primarily antagonistic aspects, there is a definite cause for a mini-celebration as the Moon in Scorpio, Venus in Pisces, and Jupiter in Cancer create a grand trine in water signs. This positive, life-affirming geometric design occurs as the Moon trines Venus (6:09AM) and Jupiter (8:49AM). This Moon-Venus-Jupiter cornucopia of good vibrations is also a signal that tomorrow will bring to humanity an even more beneficial Venus-Jupiter trine of 120-degrees. While the Moon in the eighth sign of the zodiac encourages research, detective work and soul-searching, this is clearly a day to avoid rash acts (due to the increase in martial power) and to count your blessings (as the Moon, Venus and Jupiter form a temporary trinity of tender loving care).
THU APR 17 Stay on target as an ambassador of goodwill since today is the second 24-hour time-span following Tuesday’s potent Full Moon. In addition, Juno in Aries opposite Ceres in Libra (12:08AM) represents a miniature version of the Full Moon and Total Lunar Eclipse that are still having ramifications throughout the kingdoms gracing our struggling planet. Yesterday’s burst of euphoria and happiness – under the aegis of a grand trine in water signs, composed of the Moon, Venus and Jupiter – may come to an early end at 12:10AM this morning during the monthly Moon-Saturn union in Scorpio. The Moon conjunct the beautiful ringed planet does have the capacity to energize wise business or professional aims. Plus, it offers you the opportunity to reflect on ways to be more successful via logic, pragmatism, and tuning into your executive management skills. However, this Moon-Saturn alliance also starts a void lunar uncertainty zone that lasts until 2:45PM when upbeat, adventurous Sagittarius Moon enters the picture. The lunar alchemy every month when fixed-watery Scorpio transforms itself into mutable-fiery Sagittarius may be the most powerful Moon change in the 27.3-day lunar cycle through the zodiac. Today’s headline-grabbing celestial event is Venus trine Jupiter (6:20PM) – building a nurturing-comforting bridge between Pisces and Cancer. Love vibrations increase in frequency and golden opportunities arise for achievements in the realms of big business, literary, publishing, and educational pursuits. Let the good times roll tonight as fun, games, and athletic contests give you a notable boost.
