The Hanged Man Reversed
The card of false prophecy and time wasted. The reversed Hanged Man represents a preoccupation with the worldly and wasted energy.

Virgo the Virgin
This aspect of your life will be strongly influenced by a person who is fussy, a worrier, overcritical, harsh, a perfectionist and conservative. This is someone you are associated with who is a leader although probably not over you.

Today’s I Ching Hexagram for April 29 is 21:Cutting Through

ay’s I Ching Hexagram for Everyone:

21: Cutting Through

Friday, April 29th, 2011

Hexagram 21

General Meaning: The situation calls for confronting a knotty conflict and cutting through it. Somehow, the way to harmony and unity is blocked or frustrated — perhaps by a tangle of misunderstandings or outright deceit. Like Alexander the Great cutting the Gordian knot, assert yourself now and you will meet with good fortune. Don’t be afraid to shake things up a bit. The ability to take corrective measures when they are needed is an essential trait of true leadership.

But those who bring discipline to bear must, above all, be honest — with others, and with themselves. Honesty is the hallmark of the strong and self-confident. The successful person masters the art of honesty much as a swordsman masters fencing. When lies, delusions and game playing are getting in the way of teamwork, a swift sword of honest action, perhaps even correction, must be wielded to protect one’s integrity and values. Decisiveness with integrity brings good fortune.

Though your actions be vigorous, they must not be hasty, severe or arbitrary. Be sure to carefully consider all the circumstances. In the case of a serious disruption of relations, you must forgive, but not forget to give a person a chance to make reparations for his mistakes. If some penalty or punishment is necessary, make certain that it fits the crime. When boundaries have become slack and useless, only through the institution of clear and swift correction can their effectiveness be restored.

In situations where serious issues of justice are at stake, keep careful records and do not hesitate to go public with the truth.

Your Daily Number for April 29: 7

Your Daily Number: 7

You may find yourself changing your priorities today and engaging in self-criticism. A confrontation with a loved one is possible, so keep your cool. Today is about your own spiritual realizations, wisdom, and hope. You’re comfortable being alone today and will probably be in a somewhat self-reflective frame of mind.

Today’s Tarot Card for April 29 is Judgment

Today’s Tarot Card for Everyone:

Judgment

This Tarot Deck: Medieval Cat

General Meaning: What has traditionally been known as the Judgement card, sometimes entitled Resurrection, represents the great reunion that the ancients believed would happen once in every age. This was the time when souls are harvested and taken Home to their place of origin, outside the solar system. Then the World is seeded with a batch of new souls and the process starts over.

From a modern point of view, this great reunion — which includes every personality that you have ever been and every soul that you have done deep work with — reunites to consciously complete the process. In a way, we symbolically celebrate this returning to center every year on our birthday.

In personal terms, the Judgment cards points to freedom from inner conflicts, and so clear a channel, that the buried talents and gifts of past incarnations can come through an individual in this lifetime. This card counsels you to trust the process of opening yourself, because what emerges is of consistently high quality. You can effortlessly manifest as a multi-dimensional being, and assist in evoking that response from others.

Weekend Lunar Love Horoscopes for April 29 – May 1

Weekend Love: Lunar Love

by Jeff Jawer

Take a Walk on the Wild Side

April 29 – 1

Expect a wild ride this weekend with the Moon entering rambunctious Aries on Friday morning. We tend to be more impulsive with this lunar placement, easily growing bored with preset plans and primed to leap at interesting new people and experiences. Aries is also a sign of independence, placing personal interests at a higher priority than pleasing people. This could lead to some conflict for those too absorbed in their own desires to slow down and consider what others need.

The spontaneity of Aries spikes on Friday when the Moon conjuncts electrifying Uranus. The downside of this aspect is a feeling of restless anxiety or a sense of alienation. However, creative individuals can use this cosmic connection as a chance to break old patterns and discover new ways of having fun.

Saturday’s defining planetary feature is a tense opposition between Venus, the planet of love and desire, and Saturn, the representative of limits and obligations. This sobering alignment can slam the brakes on a budding romance or take some of the enthusiasm out of an ongoing relationship. We may feel less loved or appreciated, yet the point is not to puncture the potential for love but to put it on a realistic foundation. Directly addressing partnership issues with frank conversations may not be delightful, but can set a weakening alliance back on course or end one that’s not going to meet our long-term desires.

Aggressive Mars’ conjunction with gigantic Jupiter fuels flames of anger or passion on Saturday night and Sunday, presenting a striking contrast between playing it safe and going for broke.

Our Changing Sky for April 29 – Moon in Aries

Our Changing Sky
by master astrologer Jeff Jawer

 

Moon in Aries

Apr 29, 2011 to May 1, 2011

 

The weatherman may say rain, but expect some Sun to shoot through the clouds. Aries Moon draws fire into the atmosphere, stimulating life force and vitality. You’re alive, filled with your own thoughts, centered into the vision before your own two eyes. It’s all about you today. Trouble is, everyone else is in the same place. Imagine a playing field with plenty of loose cannons. That’s Aries Moon. Insensitive remarks can land at missile speed and detonate into conflicts. The good news is they’ll end just as quickly. This Moon goes against teamwork, but it’s auspicious for personal challenges. Compete against your own limits. What’s that mountain you’ve been wanting to climb? Be daring. Headaches, eyestrain or sinus difficulty imply troubling feelings have collected inside your head. Meet whatever you’ve been avoiding head-on.

Daily Horoscopes for Friday, April 29

 

General Daily Horoscope

 

The psychic Pisces Moon reminds us that fantasy can seem real — and sometimes it actually is. It’s especially difficult to separate fact from fiction today as expansive Jupiter forms a complicated septile to dreamy Neptune. However, we are shocked awake by the Moon’s shift into spontaneous Aries at 1:33 pm EDT, followed by a Moon-Uranus conjunction at 6:58 pm. We may be temporarily thrown off balance as we respond to the suddenness of change.

 

Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Today is one of those days when you might not even realize that you’ve slipped into the Twilight Zone. If you pay close attention to everything happening now, you might notice that things are bent slightly out of shape. Slipping into this parallel world isn’t the problem, but mixing it up with the real one can prove troublesome. Rely on your friends to help you distinguish your illusions from reality.

 

 

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

You are quick-witted enough to outsmart yourself today. There is so much activity going on within your unconscious mind that you might forget what just occurred only a few minutes ago. Naturally, this can create a very embarrassing situation unless you consciously decide to stay on top of it all. Don’t be afraid to trust your snap judgment. Thankfully, your intuition won’t lead you astray now.

 

 

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

You may share a feeling today that provokes a strong and clear response. But rather than receiving a round of all-too-familiar criticism, you might actually get an unexpected boost of support from someone who isn’t usually your closest ally. Be careful, for you might be reading the situation incorrectly. And even if you’re positive about the accuracy of your perceptions, keep in mind that everyone’s feelings are prone to change now.

 

 

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

You may be daydreaming of taking a quick trip to a faraway destination, however, there’s this little problem of transportation. You might prefer the idea of near instantaneous travel because you want to get to your exotic destination immediately and still be home in time for a comfortable dinner. Unfortunately, you are just setting yourself up for disappointment unless you can be satisfied by traveling in the fantasy realms instead of actually going anywhere for real.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You have a practical agenda today, yet you might choose to set it aside if there is an opportunity to do something more exciting than taking care of business. Don’t be too concerned about other people’s expectations; you need to follow your own heart. Rather than wasting energy trying to justify your actions, attend to your responsibilities first, so whatever you do next is beyond criticism.

 

 

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You may be rethinking upcoming travel plans that you thought were already set. Or, perhaps, you’re juggling your responsibilities so you can fit everything into your schedule. But it’s tricky now because you cannot do this work alone. You’ll improve your chances for success if your co-worker or partner supports you, so include him or her in your scheming. Remember that nothing is etched in stone yet. Today’s decisions could change as soon as tomorrow.

 

 

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You have many small tasks to finish and it’s wise to complete as much as possible prior to the Moon leaving your 6th House of Routine. It becomes more complicated to return to chores left undone once your attention moves on to something else. Also, it’s quite likely that someone will distract you later in the day and your schedule will be unexpectedly hijacked; don’t put off anything important unless it’s beyond your control.

 

 

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You may welcome an exciting diversion to your daily routine today, but your responsibilities could suffer in the process. Surprisingly, you’ll probably say yes to an invitation that comes your way, even if you don’t think that you can take the time to play. Naturally, meeting your obligations remains a high priority, but your overall quality of work won’t be as good if you don’t also give yourself the chance to relax.

 

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You might experience unexpected tension because of the responsibilities that now fall on your shoulders. However, you are still ready to go out and have some fun, no matter what the consequences are. Your productivity will likely slack off today, but you should be able to make up for it tomorrow. At least, show some creativity by mixing up boring chores with new activities that are more exciting.

 

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You probably won’t be able to stick to your plans today, and accepting this fact upfront could alleviate a lot of unnecessary stress. Your moods are swinging all over the map, making you less likely to follow through on your original agenda. Rather than suppressing your feelings, remain open to them. Maintaining objectivity now could be exhausting and unproductive. You will feel much better once you give yourself permission to temporarily relinquish control.

 

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You may receive an unexpected message today from someone who is very close to you. Paradoxically, what you are told could be contrary to what you thought you were going to hear. This new information could complicate your day, but you’ll only make matters worse if you try to block it out. You can’t avoid the negative consequences by pretending there isn’t a problem. Be smart and face any issue that surfaces now before it spins out of control.

 

 

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You may feel unsettled today because you know something is about to change. Your feelings are quite volatile now and you don’t know where they are leading you. Unfortunately, your attempts to suppress your needs could provoke you to unconsciously act out. Trying to control the situation by limiting your interactions with others will only make you feel lonely. Remember that you are a Fish and should know that it’s easier to swim with the currents instead of resisting the tide.

Thank The Goddess It Is Finally Friday

Good morning dear readers! I hope everyone is having a loving day today. Personally, I don’t have much to say today. I know there has been a lot of festivities due to the Royal Wedding but that is overseas not here at home. Everyone was in a joyous mood, the Wedding had renewed them or refreshed them. I guess I must be one hell of a cynic, all I could do was think of the mess that was here at home. The number of tornadoes that had ripped through the lower southern States. When they announced on the news that 300 were dead at the time, I never felt such sorrow in my life. Even though I have been through two tornadoes myself and I will admit I was very, very fortunate to come out of both of them unharmed. Perhaps that is why I am having such a hard time dealing with this many dead in just a matter of seconds. You know I am a mother of two (both of them now grown). But I was thinking this morning, to be hiding in a closet with one of them and all of a sudden the roof is ripped off, and that child is sucked right throw my grasp. Or my husband and I under a mattress and it is lifted up and away, I turn to look and he is gone. How on earth do these people recover from this? How do you ever pick up the pieces and move on? I am the only one left in my family, everyone else has passed on. I am still fairly young and with each of their passing my heart was ripped. I know people will tell you it gets better over time. I can’t tell that to people anymore, I know different. My mother passed when I was very young. I still have times to this day that her passing seems like only yesterday. I stop and cry and my heart breaks again. I have my good memories of her and that is what helps me cope with her death. I had people tell me everything when she passed on. But with as many deaths of family members I have faced I know one thing, your memories of that person is the most important thing you have. Keep those memories, think of them often. Remember their days of tolling on this Earth is through, they have gone on to a better place. My vision that keeps me going is thinking about the Rainbow Bridge. I know most envision the Bridge as being for animals but I have envisioned one for humans too. I see my sister and mother walking hand in hand across a grassy field coming to greet me. They are no longer in pain, the Goddess with Her love and kindness has made them whole again. They are laughing and my sister tells me, “I have worried and shed tears for nothing.”

For those of you that have been touched by tragedy these last couple of days, I hope my vision gives you some comfort. Why this had to happen to you? We will never know. They say all things happen for a reason but I have never found a reason for an untimely death and I have looked. Please take comfort that you are not alone. You have a great number of people praying for you. You will pick up the pieces, no matter how difficult, and begin to move on. Even though, you have lost a loved one, take comfort you will be reunited one day. In closing, I would like to leave you with a prayer for you and the other survivors of this devastating weather.

Oh, Goddess, I humbly pray for all those

who have died, but especially for all the

victims of the recent tornadoes. Hold all of

them near to you until he/she is ready to be

reborn again from your womb.

Oh God, please grant these people an easy

rebirth, and that we never forget all that

he/she was to us in this world. Bring

them to the everlasting joy of the

Summerland.

So Mote It Be.
