In the Stars April 14-21, 2019…shining light on the astrology of the week: Full Moon

The Christian Holy week contains a potent Full Moon which is part of a dynamic Grand Cross, exact on Good Friday. The symbolism aligns with Easter themes of death and resurrection. The South Node is in a close conjunction with Pluto and Saturn, symbolizing completions, transformations, and endings and beginnings. This is a week to ponder consciously what is ready to die in your life and what is ready to be born. How will you transform your life at this Easter and Spring season of renewal?

Sunday is truly a Sabbath day. Planetary aspects are joyful and expansive. Create a fun day, kick back, and enjoy. You deserve to make the most of this day after a challenging past week.

The Moon ingresses into industrious Virgo on Monday, April 15th, Tax Day. If you still need to finish your taxes, the Virgo Moon will help you complete your filing. If your taxes are done, turn your attention to other things that need to be completed. When the Moon is in Virgo, as it is Monday and Tuesday, it is time to tidy up and get organized. A Moon-Uranus trine may deliver surprises. Even though you would like to be on task for clean-up, be open to diversions that demand your attention.

The practical Virgo Moon steadies a cosmically active Tuesday that sports numerous aspects, both benefic and challenging. While we may feel overextended, as well as dreamy (Moon square Jupiter and Neptune), we are able to lean into our work with a strong drive for accomplishment (Moon trine Saturn and Pluto). If you harness the abundance of energy that is available, much can be accomplished. Keep moving.

Mercury has moved into Aries, speeding up our thinking processes. The Moon is in cardinal, action-oriented Libra. Although Libra likes to be gracious and accommodating, and this is best done slowly, a Moon-Mars trine gets us fired up for action.

Thursday the Libra Moon conjuncts Pallas Athena, highlighting our ability to combine strategy and diplomacy to address relationship concerns. The Moon squares off with the Nodes, Pluto, and Saturn, a bold combination which may bring relationship issues to be addressed front and center.

Good Friday’s Full Moon is potentiated with powerful energy. This Full Moon occurs with the Sun in Aries and the Moon in Libra at 29:06, the last degree of Cardinal signs which is significant and potent. The Full Moon forms a Grand Cross with the Moon’s nodes in Cancer (North Node) and Capricorn (South Node). Pluto and Saturn conjoin the South Node, making for an extremely powerful Full Moon. Uranus conjuncts the Moon, adding the element of the unexpected. Themes of impulsiveness, crisis, and transformation abound in this Full Moon. Soon after this Full Moon culmination, the Moon moves into Scorpio tropically. Go slowly and carefully.

The Sun ingresses into Taurus on Passover Saturday, slowing us down to tend to our planting for the next month. On the other hand, Venus ingresses into Aries, warming our passions. Benefic alignments of the Moon to Pluto, Saturn, and Neptune make for a productive and satisfying day.

Easter Sunday is a sunny, optimistic day, brightened by the Moon’s ingress into Sagittarius, and augmented by benefic trines to Venus, Chiron, and Mercury, all conjunct in Aries. Hop like an Easter bunny off to an outdoor adventure.

This week could be game changing, as it starts with the big bang of a Sun-Uranus conjunction on Monday, which often bring reversals, surprises, and awakenings. The Sagittarius Moon is positive, adventurous, and philosophical. Writing may ignite discoveries. Make the most of this day, and be open to the astonishing developments that may unfold.

Moon Void-of-Course: This is the time when the Moon makes its last major angular aspect with a planet before it moves into the next zodiacal sign tropically. This void time, when the Moon is not aspecting a planet, but rather floating on its own, is a time when things don’t come together and it’s difficult to make good decisions. Purchases made during void Moons often turn out to be unsatisfactory and not work out. Appointments often don’t come together, and meetings don’t result in progress or sound, lasting decisions. We more easily get lost or meander in trying to get somewhere. The VoC Moon times for the next month are listed below so that you can plan meetings, decisions, and purchases at times when the Moon is not VoC; and use the void times for gardening, reading, and routine task work.
