Tracing the shadow of astrology and art

Daily Forecasts

April 12, 2019

Today’s first quarter Moon in Cancer asks us to check in on our emotional intentions we set around the New Moon in Aries last week. Find a moment to connect with yourself today in this capacity, as a way of tracking your state of mind through the Moon’s cycle.

Today the Moon connects harmoniously with Neptune and Venus, both of which are conjunct in Pisces. The sensual, fantastical vibe of that conjunction is therefore amplified today. A perfect day for art, in my opinion :)

Venus strikes an energized sextile to Saturn, planet of self-mastery, and we are able to find new and creative ways to translate our long term goals into intentional action.

The Moon opposes Pluto and Saturn today though, bringing to light control issues, feelings of loneliness, rejection, frustration. There is a distance in this transit between our needs and what we perceive about our reality. Feelings of lack, disappointment, and sadness are liable to pop up, so take good care.

A trine between the Moon and Mercury empowers us to speak our minds, and to find support for our concerns. Direct and slow communication is our best bet for feeling better today. Stay focused, and believe in the power of talking things out.
