Morning Star: Daily Astrology for Tuesday, April 28, 2015

This morning we wake under a veil of potential heaviness as the Moon in Virgo meets Saturn Rx by square at 4:01 AM. The burden of responsibility has found us. So has the harsh truth and reality of whatever situation we find ourselves in. Thankfully, though, a nice earthy trine between the Sun in Taurus and Moon in Virgo comes along and helps us to get down to the nitty gritty of whatever it is we need to get done. The energy coming from Taurus right now is of HUGE support to our Virgo Moon. Taurus plods and Virgo can chunk out the work in front of us in bite sized steps. Together, the two industriously meet the challenges ahead. That energy does help ease the tension between the Moon and Saturn a little. However, it may feel like joyless toiling at the starting line. Yet we can surely find our groove by midday.

By early evening, the Moon waxes into opposition with Neptune in Pisces. Water rushes across our Earthy energy. Practical and methodical gives way to potential confusion, delusion and emotional washout. It could be a simple as being completely worn out after a solid days efforts. This could prompt us to turn in early or unwind with an early dinner cocktail. We've plowed all day. But, many a plow is resting in the field by early evening hours.

Moon opposite Neptune could also cause quite the influx of emotionality. In that, triage the situation and realize you are probably physically tired at this point. Fatigue can make emotional situations seem even more dire. Take a few moments to yourself to regroup and relax. Soothe tired overworked muscles by soaking in a tub filled with warm water and Epsom salts. This is also a good evening for indulging in a pedicure or foot massage. Our cow hooves could be looking a little crusty at this point. Paying attention to parts of our bodies that are often neglected or forgotten is a beneficial activity.
In this morning, we are tasked with taking care of business and getting down to the nitty gritty. But, by early evening, the call is to direct that care toward ourselves in a more gentle manner. We'll be ready to strap the plow back on tomorrow. Tonight, though, is earmarked for meticulous self-care, rest and recuperation.
