Daily Cosmic Calendar for Wednesday, April 30th

It may be a little too soon to shout from the rooftops that the recent stellar conflicts are at an end, but some of today’s fortuitous alignments are pointing in that general direction. The early hours appear promising across the board — courtesy of a high-minded, 72-degree liaison between Mercury and Jupiter (1:20AM) while the Moon in Pisces in a 60-degree, supportive tie with the Sun in Taurus (7:15AM) provides a good-sized dose of physical and emotional revitalization. Remember that it was Mercury (on April 14) and Jupiter (on April 20) that each made several adversarial aspects — magnifying the potential discord of those time-periods. Now they act as though it never happened by reaching across the zodiac in a thought-provoking 72-degree contact. Enjoy explorations in the fine and graphic arts, music and dance improvisations as the Moon unites with Neptune (11:50AM) and parallels Venus (3:02PM). The latter sky pattern can rev your romantic engines. However, focus attention on safety and security measures while Venus forms an off-kilter, 150-degree link with Vesta (12:04PM) and keep your emotional cool when the Moon parallels Mars (8:40PM). Maintain a steady hand if you need to deal with evening business matters since Venus trines Saturn in water signs (10:16PM). Insights inundate your consciousness as Thursday night morphs into Friday morning as the Moon makes a flowing trine to Jupiter (11:55PM).
