Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for Monday, April 22


Favorable sky cycles clash with challenging celestial aspects as Earth Day festivities are embraced throughout many societies and cultures around the globe. On the nurturing-comforting front, the moon is making its monthly union with productivity-maven Ceres in Sagittarius (9:31 a.m.) while Venus forms inspirational, 72-degree contacts with Saturn (10:14 a.m.) and Mars (11:23 p.m.). Creating a fair amount of discord are the moon’s monthly opposition to Mars (11:36 a.m.) and potentially volatile shake-ups emanating from the annual solar conjunction with Uranus at 3 degrees of Taurus (4:08 p.m.) and a possibly confusion-generating, 45-degree interaction between the sun and far-out Neptune (11:05 p.m.).

Helping you stay on target with long-range goals despite the heavenly cacophony is the approaching lunar union with Jupiter that becomes exact at 4:45 a.m. tomorrow. Start preparing now for Pluto becoming stationary and turning retrograde this Wednesday.
