Weekly Weather April 27, 2015

Forward we go with a large, supported WHOOSH of fire energy from Jupiter and Uranus in a happy, action taking, and creative trine until they meet up on June 22.  Jupiter is also the apex of a Finger of God with Pluto and Vesta as the legs. Pluto and Vesta perfect on May 1 ~ so make wise choices about the direction you want to pursue this week.  Jupiter is inviting you to step forward in the area of life where you are supposed to express yourself and get busy!

I love watching the collective expression of the energy in the heavens down here on earth. Last week as Mercury and Mars in passionate Taurus arrived on the world axis trine to Pluto, Lord of the Underworld, we watched as Dr. McDreamy, Derek Shepherd, on Grey’s Anatomy was killed off after 11 years (Jupiter). Of course, his character was born in 1966 so as Uranus and Pluto, united in his year of birth, pull away from each other, Derek moves on to a new path, leaving Meredeth Grey alone.  On a sadder note, in the real world, the numerous small earthquakes quivering the ground around the Mediterranean and Nepal as Pluto stationed, coalesced into a much bigger 7.8 earthquake near Katmandu, killing over 3,000 people as well as folks climbing Mount Everest.  Volcano activity was also “up” as Pluto stopped.  Add the earthquake link below to your browser to watch the activity world wide!

So decisions made, we move forward to our next phase.  We might have some cleanup left to do over the summer but essentially, the major evolution requested by the Uranus/Pluto square is finished.  We’ll need a bit of time to process Pluto ~  you need space to figure out what, exactly, happened.  However, Uranus is full steam ahead and fired up by Jupiter so you might not have any time to catch your breath.  Just go for it.

With Venus out of bounds this week, and Mercury also going out of bounds on Friday, we will bounce along at a very fast clip.  Both Venus and Mercury are in Gemini ~ the sign of discussing choices and options. Out of bounds planets don’t follow the rules like the other planets do.  The Sun is NOT the boss of them… they move beyond the Sun’s reach. So explore your options this week. Reach PAST what is possible as right now it IS possible.  Push the edges a bit.

Sun works with Neptune positively to shine some clarity on a long held dream on Wednesday ~ things come to light that need to be seen. Stressful or difficult choices are made on Thursday as Sun aspects the Node of fate…. Choose toward love.  Partnerships are tested but should be fine if the foundation is actually love.  Lots of emotions over the weekend as Sun aspects Poseidon ~ possible Tsunamis too.

Mercury is super busy this week finishing up Taurus and making stressful choices on Monday, ending situations forever on Wednesday, entering Gemini on Thursday and going out of bounds on Friday. Over next weekend Mercury has hard decisions to make as he wrestles with Pluto and Uranus and opposes Saturn.  Venus gets all stirred up on Wednesday as she squares Chiron ~ old wounds can surface.  Air them out! Venus hops in to stir the envy or jealousy pot on Friday with her sextile to Eris. The angry feminine energy is finished over the weekend.

Mars accelerates everything this week as he roams through the back end, the Capricorn end. of Taurus ~ plan for your future and work on setting foundations in place. He wants to make things solid, reliable and dependable.  Allow options to be expressed.

Pallas enters Sagittarius retrograde on April 30, negotiating legal matters and new contracts. Juno’s aspect to the Nodes of Destiny introduces new partners into the mix as of Tuesday night.

 

Venus and Mercury out of bounds in Gemini produce some unusual partnerships and pairings. Accept them and move forward.  Like the dog and the woman in the video above, unusual offers of partnership invite you to experience things in a different way.

Sun clears Neptune so we can see clearly, even if we are rather stressed out by WHAT we see.  Yes, it was always part of the story. And NOW that you know, you get it. All part of the magic of the universe to get us to where we are now.

Expect to get oodles of things done and crossed off your to-do list Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.  The aspects are supportive and the Moons are full of good closing aspects. Sunday and next Monday are harsh with Scorpio Moon opposing Mars in Taurus.

Monday’s moon in Leo is void with decent aspects which might contain an argument. Moon enters Virgo Monday night at 9:07 pm EDT ET with a closing aspect of a trine to Mercury making Monday night, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday early morning quite productive, busy, detail oriented, completion focused and crossing stuff off your to-do list. Thursday morning, Moon enters Libra, answering to Out of Bounds Venus with a closing trine to Venus. Libra Moon is all about relationships and partnerships Thursday, Friday and even during the void moon all day Saturday.  Moon enters Scorpio with separating aspects of an opposition to Mars on Saturday night at 9:47 pm for parting, ending, closing and wrapping up things energy Sunday and Monday. The Moons are in personal signs Monday through Wednesday encouraging us to value our creativity and get things accomplished and organized before going out into the world on Thursday through Monday to negotiate with the other and determine our value.

Void Moons in the Week Ahead:  When the Moon is Void, it is wise to avoid making important decisions as they tend to be unrealistic, and subject to false starts, errors or unexpected hassles.  Avoid being concerned with things beyond your spiritual center.  It is time for subjective, spiritual and non-materialistic concerns.  Kick back, let life flow, and center yourself.  Connect into your essential oneness with the Universal Forces.

Moon is in Leo.

There is a Full Moon at 13:25 Scorpio on Sunday, May 2, 2015 at 11:42 pm EDT.  The Full Moon echoes back to a New Moon on November 3, 2013 and an opening quarter in August 3, 2014.  Now that New Moon energy culminates ~ we are able to see the results of what we’ve done. The Full Moon in Taurus is considered the enlightened moon ~ The Taurus/Scorpio Full Moon was the Moon the Buddha was enlightened during as he sat under the Bodhi tree.  It offers a profound fertility as well as deep psychological insights.  Unfortunately, THIS particular Moon might be emotionally difficult as the energy is a bit over the top.  Mercury, Venus and Ceres are Out of Bounds making communications, money and nurturing energies act in unpredictable ways. You might have thought things would show up one way when in fact, it seems to have gone completely off track. The ascendant for the Moon is 29 Sagittarius suggests the end of a legal matter. The ascendant also squares the recent New Moon eclipse at 29 Pisces from March 20, 2015 and activates it. Mercury is opposite the part of catastrophe ~ if word gets further out of control, it can be very problematic. The ascendant is on Acumen ~ you are seeing everything quite clearly. Pluto is on the asteroid Kassandra and parallels Lilith so the prophecies of wise women or seers should be heeded. Kassandra warned the about the horse in the Trojan war!  Lilith is not a force to be trifled with. Pay deep attention to what you hear as it is the truth ~ even if you don’t much like it!

The Sabian Image for the Taurus Sun is: ON THE BEACH, CHILDREN PLAY WHILE SHELLFISH GROPE AT THE EDGE OF THE WATER

Lynda Hill’s interpretation of the Sabian symbol is:

Commentary: ‘On the Beach, Children Play While Shellfish Grope at the Edge of the Water’ speaks of peaceful coexistence amongst beings on different levels of evolution. The ‘Children are Playing’ whilst the ‘Shellfish’ are feeding. Each is getting on with what they are doing in peaceful harmony. It shows the essential unity of all life, no matter how “evolved” each being is. Getting back to the basic elements, such as nature, with a sense of ‘Play’ will help alleviate the seriousness of any problems or stress.

Oracle: Allow your instincts to guide you in the process facing you. Get on with your own activities, focus on these and enjoy them, regardless of what others are doing. Looking outside of your own sphere of operations may bring harm to others, as can happen when ‘Children’ on the ‘Beach’ take ‘Shellfish’ and put them in buckets. The day and the experience will come to an end with the tide bringing another day and another episode in your life. Sometimes you can feel confident and settled with how your desires are being manifested in the world, while at other times you may feel out of your depth with the expectations that the world seems to have of you. In truth, you will find that most situations will be a combination of both. Just be yourself and lighten up. The message is to enjoy those things that make sense and just allow time to teach you how to deal with those things you don’t understand. Try indulging in some time out by the water and interact with nature there. An insight into your problem is likely to be revealed with the coming and going of the tide.

Keywords: Being self-sufficient. Looking after one’s own affairs. A sense of at-one-ment with all forms of life. Having a live and let live attitude. Peripheral vision. Returning to the source. Feeling safe in a natural environment. Playing alongside nature. Building sand castles. Playing in pools or baths.

The Caution: Meddling in people’s lives. Restriction of play. Being distracted. Sandcastles that will eventually get washed away. Not knowing how to loosen up with others and relax into a natural environment.

In every out thrust headland, in every curving beach, in every grain of sand there is a story of the earth. Rachel Carson

I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me. Isaac Newton

. . and so castles made of sand slip into the sea eventually. Jimi Hendrix

One cannot collect all the beautiful shells on the beach. One can collect only a few, and they are more beautiful if they are few. Anne Morrow Lindbergh

To live and let live, without clamor for distinction or recognition . . . to write truth first on the tablet of one’s own heart – this is the sanity and perfection of living, and my human ideal. Mary Baker Eddy

The Sabian Symbol for the Full Moon at 13 Scorpio is TELEPHONE LINEMEN AT WORK INSTALLING NEW CONNECTIONS

Lynda Hill’s interpretation of the Sabian image is:

Commentary: ‘Telephone Linemen at Work Installing New Connections’ shows people working and concentrating on laying the ‘Lines’ for ‘Connections’ so that people may communicate with each other easily and effectively. They are laying cables to allow for the smooth functioning of the ‘Telephone’ system. They have a clear understanding of how the equipment works and how necessary and valuable it is in enabling people to link with each other.

Oracle: This Symbol reflects an increase in the forms of communication that you can have access to, or that you have more communications coming to you. You may find that there has been a failure in communicating your thoughts, ideas or emotions lately. Something is being (or needs to be) done or laid down, in order to solve, repair or patch up the situation. There is nothing to be achieved by worrying about any recent “connection” failures, however something should be done to set about making or repairing the necessary ‘Lines’ of communication. Sometimes advice and help must be called on for all to be resolved. This may need to be expert advice, but it can also be gathered from your own common sense. This can symbolize expansion into areas like the Internet, faxes or business lines. It can also represent the spiritual connection to the “other side”, even channeling. Sometimes, in the ‘Installing of New Connections’ problems of crossed-lines occur. It’s important to listen for the real truth in the communications that are being made, not to all the faint chitchat that surrounds what’s being said. Networking and new lines of communications often open up after this Symbol is revealed.

Keywords: Acupuncture and other therapies that work on the body’s meridians. The nervous system. The Internet. Forming new lines of communication. New connections taking place. Linking people up. Making sure that messages get through. Mobile phones, faxes, email. Networks and networking. Switchboards. Satellites. Wires. The ability to reach far distances. Getting on other peoples’ wavelengths. Contacts.

The Caution: Failing to see the necessity for repairs to personal communication. Becoming involved in other people’s lives. Gossip. News, thoughts and ideas spreading rapidly and getting out of control. Constant chatting. Being fickle. Sabotage.

 

If the first person who answers the phone cannot answer your question it’s a bureaucracy. If the first person can answer your question, it’s a miracle. Gerald F. Lieberman

That’s an amazing invention [the telephone], but who would ever want to use one of them? Rutherford B. Hayes (US president)

My kids’ idea of a hard life is to live in a house with only one phone. George Foreman

Well if this is the wrong number, why did you answer it? James Thurber

In the business world an executive knows something about everything, a technician knows everything about something-and the switchboard operator knows everything. Harold Coffin

Gossip is nature’s telephone. Sholom Aleichem

I’ve suffered from all of the hang-ups known, and none is as bad as the telephone. Richard Armour

Middle age is when you’re sitting at home on Saturday night and the telephone rings and you hope it isn’t for you. Ogden Nash

 

Moon day Monday April 27, 2015  Moon is in Leo. Moon goes void square to Mercury at 10:13:27 am EDT.  Moon is void all day in Leo. Moon enters Virgo at 09:08:23 pm EDT and goes void trine to Mercury.  Dreams are full of information and cause some serious tossing and turning last night. Mars links up with Jupiter so you are ready to rock and roll. Mercury’s union with Sedna brings up deep emotions from below the surface.  The Inuit Goddess needs to be listened to ~ the seas or oceans will be part of the news today.  Apollon enters Libra, moving backwards from Scorpio, encouraging reconsideration and forward motion around legal matters.  Believe what you hear! The God Apollo is bringing things to your attention. Mercury is stressfully aspecting the Nodes of Fate. Mercury is on the fixed Star Capulus, prominent in beheadings. Be careful not to lose your head! Uranus has an aspect of brilliance to Ceres offering a great idea that you need to act on at the end of the day. Moon enters Virgo tonight setting off a few days that are incredibly productive!

 

Mars’s day Tuesday April 28, 2015 Moon is in Virgo and goes void trine to Mercury so the next few days are quite productive.  Mercury in Taurus rules the Moon so solid, reliable, down to earth accomplishments, slow and steady progressed which is goosed by Venus in Gemini out of bounds presents an interesting energy for getting things done. Dreams were full of toss and turn energy. Pluto contraparallel Pallas this morning pointed out patterns to you that need to change… you’ve been noticing this for a while so now is the time to get it done. Moon’s opposition to Neptune clears up an emotional situation that has been brewing for a while. The offer of help was well intended, even if you or they don’t like what is going on. There is a saying that a new broom sweeps clean!  Where do you need a new broom in your life?  What needs to be swept out?  Lilith and Eris get together for a party tonight so watch for angry female energy. Juno’s aspect to the Nodes of Fate invites a relationship to form that inspires creativity ~ this can be with yourself or someone else.  Where do YOU need to partner to express creatively energy that you recently became aware of?  For example, recently due to a personal situation, I realized I miss the “hunt”.  I used to “hunt” for a living as a sales person ~ there was a thrill in calling on a new customer and closing a deal. Before that, when I was a computer programmer, there was the thrill of delivering a finished computer program or wrapping up a project. I was out of the office, calling on clients, roaming the city.  These days, I sit on my butt and talk to clients all day (which I love!) but there is no hunting involved as they find me and schedule their own appointments…  I realized I need to add more “hunting” into my life. Of course, it helps that my secondary progressed Moon just turned from Taurus (stationary earth) into Gemini (Moveable air).  What do you need to add into your life to nurture your soul?

Wednesday Mercury’s day April 29, 2015  Moon is in Virgo and goes void trine to Mercury.  Another productive day as Moon in Virgo conquers all sorts of mundane tasks that clutter your life. There is a huge whoosh of completing energy mid-day as Mercury amplifies how to productively get things accomplished.  Watch for disagreement on what you and the other person feels is “nurturing” versus “interfering”. It is both actually but there is space for a disagreement. Take a new approach to your dreams today as Mars aspects Neptune. You have to take a slightly changed approach to get them lassoed.  Pay attention to health matters today.  Sun’s sextile to Neptune tonight encourages you to take a more proactive approach to making your dreams come true.  They are your dreams after all!  Who is going to make them come true but YOU? And no more waiting until you lose weight, have more time or less stress.  Just fit a bit of your dream into every day. Mercury’s conjunction with Admetos this evening ends a matter for good.  You are ready to move on.  So go already!!

The balance of days will be posted later today!   

Anne’s Three Radio Shows and Three Recommended Shows Recap:  Listen in to the podcasts via iTunes or by the website links.

Anne’s Weekly Weather:  With a whoosh, we head off into Spring!  Venus out of bounds until June 2 and Mercury goes out of bounds on May 1 until May 19, makes the Taurus Sun and Nodes of Destiny (both answering to Venus out of Bounds) full of wild imagining, crazy, spinning and talkative energy.  Expect fast shifts and changes of directions. A Full Moon on Sunday, under difficult aspects, culminates the New Moon story from November 2013.
