Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for April 8


If you were thinking that the week ahead might be a slam-dunk from the astro-zodiacal perspective, think again. Before you encounter the exact time of Ceres at 15 degrees of Sagittarius making a station and turning retrograde (9:36 p.m.), the universe throws you numerous curve balls. Be on guard as a void lunar uncertainty zone begins in Taurus at 1:30 a.m.—lasting until airy Gemini moon starts at 2:16 p.m.

Shortly thereafter, peace and harmony should be promoted in key relationships as Juno in Gemini opposes Jupiter in Sagittarius (3:25 p.m.)—where Jupiter is only two days away from making its own station and shift into reverse motion. Focus attention on the following themes associated with Ceres—productivity, Mother Nature, parent-child and mother-daughter relationships, caregiving, agriculture, gardening, dietary, and nutritional matters, the harvest, and yet also scarcity, drought, and famine. (Ceres continues its retrograde cycle until July 17 when it goes direct again at 1 degree of Sagittarius.) Adding a further component of potential discord is Pallas squaring Saturn (9:45 p.m.). Do the best you can on the problem-solving front, but don’t expect miracles.
