Daily Cosmic Calendar for Tuesday, April 29th

The last four New Moons — before the one last night — have all occurred under duress, caused by the conflicts associated with unruly planets. Monday’s Taurus New Moon happened just after Mercury and Mars conducted another skirmish while Saturn attempted to add a dour note to Mercury’s harmony of the spheres. There are at least four sour sky tones that can make today’s melodies sound off-key as Juno forms a frictional, 45-degree tie with Chiron (12:56AM), Pallas makes the same kind of abrasive, 45-degree aspect with Mars (4:01PM), Venus contacts Pallas via an off-kilter, 150-degree liaison (8:31PM), and then the Moon in Taurus makes its monthly opposition to Saturn in Scorpio (8:58PM). While this quartet of naysayers is not nearly as contentious as other four-fold discordant aspects on other days, it could interfere with your ability to utilize the potency of the New Moon to take several giant leaps ahead. Neutralizing the apparent obstacles to forward progress are the monthly Moon-Mercury union in Taurus (7:08AM), the Moon forming a supportive, 60-degree sextile with expansive, optimistic Jupiter (9:57AM), and a splendid, research-promoting trine of 120-degrees between Mercury and Pluto in earth signs (10:31AM). Therefore, despite some of the disagreeable sky patterns occurring throughout the day, you should be able to be a winner when it counts the most and when people are depending on your wise judgment.
