Tracing the shadow of astrology and art

Daily Forecasts

April 9, 2019

This morning the Moon, luminary of emotions, connects with Mars, planet of war and aggression, in intellectual Gemini. Combative words and ideas abound, striking us in the center of the heart. Be mindful of what you say, as our words are armed with extra blade today.

In the evening, the Moon squares off with Venus and Neptune, which sit together in dreamy Pisces. There is pressure here. Venus conjunct Neptune is magickal, ethereal, artistic, and intuitive. The Moon’s difficult aspect here builds some tension and anxiety, especially in the social, emotional, and intuitive realm.

We can perhaps be saved by the lush connection between Venus and Neptune, which comes at 11:14pm. A gorgeous, luminous evening for connectivity, for love, for music, and dream. Poetry emanates here like few other aspects, as the planet of love, material pleasure, glamour, and art (Venus), connects with the planet of intuition, healing, and shadow. I hope you find ways to feel connected to the otherworldly tonight, and that this provides some relief to the precarious nature of the day’s earlier astrology.
