The energy this weekend is much lighter and more harmonious than what was experienced during the first part of this week, with Venus in its home sign of Taurus coming into a beautiful trine to Saturn in Capricorn. This transit is excellent for bringing a more grounded, stabilizing energy to both our relationships and our finances and is great for practical activities of all kinds.
Friday (4/6): No major planetary aspects. Today the Moon goes Void-of-Course in Sagittarius at 6:36am MST after making it’s last aspect in the fiery and adventurous sign—a harmonious trine to Uranus, indicating the potential for easy, positive innovation and change. The Moon moves into the cold and disciplined sign of Capricorn at 11:01am MST, changing up the energy quite a bit.
Capricorn is opposite Cancer (the moon’s “home”) and because of this, the moon is considered to be at its “detriment” in this sign. The world can feel a bit cold and closed off under the Capricorn moon. A greater emphasis is placed on duty and responsibility over nurturing and self-care. A sense of order and structure is provided, directing the emotional fluidity of the moon in a way that is more careful and calculated. There is a time and a place for feelings and emotions, and the Capricorn moon makes that very clear. Intuition is replaced with a more calculated and grounded approach to interpreting our experiences during this time. This is an ideal time to take responsibility for oneself and get back to work.
Saturday (4/7): Today, Venus in its home sign of Taurus comes into a beautiful, harmonious trine with Saturn in Capricorn, softening up some of the more challenging energy that dominated the first part of this week. This energy is excellent for making long-term commitments, reaching very grounded, practical agreements, and for investments and financial decision-making (although I would caution against jumping into anything new in these areas while Mercury is still in Retrograde). This aspect deepens our commitment in current relationships and can bring greater care and stability to all of our interactions. While this aspect doesn’t support lavish spending, it is good for making practical purchases, especially when the items involved are well-crafted and built to last. This is also a great energy for creative projects and working in partnership with others.
The Moon today continues to transit the pragmatic sign of Capricorn, making a conjunction to Saturn and a trine to Venus, further highlighting the Venus/Saturn trine that comes exact today. The Moon also makes a conjunction to Mars and a square to Mercury, highlighting the energy of the Mars/Mercury square that came exact earlier this week and causing us to revisit the events that transpired in a more subjective and intuitive manner.
Sunday (4/7): No major planetary aspects. Today we enter into the Last Quarter Square of the Moon in Capricorn. The Last Quarter Moon marks a crisis of completion. It is a time of tension between our physical reality and our emotional and intuitive energies. Although it may feel like there is still much to do, we come to a realization that we need to begin to separate ourselves from the work we’ve completed throughout this cycle. We are now called to find a new direction, make appropriate mental and emotional adjustments, and begin reflecting on our intentions for the next lunar cycle.
The Moon today will make a couple of challenging aspects, a conjunction to Pluto, heightening the potential for emotionally intense experiences, and a square to Uranus, indicating a bit of disruption. Luckily, the Moon will be making a supportive sextile over to Jupiter this evening, enhancing our collective mood and keeping us optimistic even amidst a slight bought of turbulence. The Moon goes Void-of-Course at 7:40pm MST until 11:50pm when it begins it’s 2.5 day transit through the enigmatic sign of Aquarius.
