Morning Star: Daily Astrology for April 15, 2015

This morning we wake up (?) to the Moon in Pisces conjunct Neptune (6:53 AM). Sloshy. The fog burns off, though, as the Moon meets with Mars in Taurus by sextile at (10:10 AM). This aspect provides ambition to our emotional body and allows us to become emotionally engaged in our assertions. Mars in Taurus is also waxing into trine with Pluto (April 21). Our strength is building. Mars' square to Jupiter is also gaining in intensity, pumping us with confidence in our anticipated actions while prompting us to be realistic about what we can achieve. However, with Mars waxing in to trine with Pluto at the same time, we really may be able to move mountains.

By 5:37 PM, the Moon is in a fortifying sextile with Pluto. This brings solid support to our swimming Moon allowing us to go deeply into any emotional situation while subsequently being able to survive the intensity. From here, the Moon is Void until entering Aries tomorrow at 5:01 PM. Finally, an emotional break that I'm sure many will be more than ready for.
Today we are still sweeping the door sills clean and tilling under the soil in preparation for the New Moon. One lunar year is waxing out while a brand new one is knocking to come in. So, as we sweep out our homes we should also work to sweep and clear out our emotional body. Let go of remorse and regret while allowing the sextile to an active Mars to support us in moving forward. Mars' actions in Taurus leave a deep footprint. So, tread deliberately and carefully, diligently and slowly, chunking out projects bit by manageable bit until the slate is clean.

Tomorrow morning is fairly inert without the Moon engaged. We can continue our cleanup efforts but actions are more mechanical than emotional. After the Moon enters Aries, though, our emotional body fires its engines back up and we really begin the call to get ready to drive forward. Prepare to pace yourself. This is not a quick trip. The Sun will traverse the entire zodiac and the Moon will travel around the same 12 times before we finish this race. Break large goals down into steps and recognize how this New Lunar Year works within your own lunar cycle. Then, prepare to begin again.
