Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for Friday, April 4th

Today is not nearly as intense and uncomfortable as any of the last three days, but it is also no pushover and cake walk. The celestial bodies are still messing around and acting uncouth as Mercury forms a contra-parallel with Uranus (2:41AM), Venus forms a frictional, 45-degree tie with Pluto (4:41AM), Mercury makes an off-kilter, 150-degree connection with Pallas (9:27AM) while Mercury makes the same kind of 150-degree connection with Vesta (5:13PM). Mercury,  Pallas, and Vesta are in cahoots — creating what is known as a Finger of God or Yod triangle in the heavens. These kinds of geometric formations always carry a certain amount of unknown energy — although the realms of communication, transportation, and health appear to be involved in the equation. Because Pallas and Vesta are in the mix, problem-solving — especially related to investment planning and safety-security measures — may be uneven or extra difficult. A supportive, 60-degree sextile from the Moon in Gemini to the Sun in Aries (8:58AM) — along with a research-activating, 72-degree contact between Mercury and Pluto (4:58PM) — are the universe’s way of trying to be Mr. Nice Guy for a change of pace. It is to your advantage to look ahead to this weekend when Venus will enter the sign of its exaltation, Pisces, on Saturday while the Moon cozies up to high-minded, King of the Gods Jupiter in their monthly rendezvous on Sunday.

Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for December 30th

As 2013 enters its final 48 hours, shake-ups of all kinds are materializing around the globe. Yesterday brought squares between the Sun and Mercury with Uranus while today reveals Mars square to Pluto. Plus, tomorrow is no slouch in this regard as it will provide a union between Mercury and Pluto while also setting up a stage for Mercury to fight against Mars in another square off that can certainly increase tensions everywhere.  The dark-of-the-moon phase also starts making its appearance today and tomorrow since 2014 will — rather amazingly — begin with a Capricorn New Moon uniting with Pluto, creating the closest Sun-Pluto conjunction on a New Year’s Day in approximately 247 years. Therefore, if you are feeling a little out-of-sorts and worried about the present and the future, you are not alone.  Of course, it is always an asset to have a Sagittarius Moon presence at your beck and call that can give you encouragement to deal with whatever challenges may be on the horizon. This Sagittarius lunar asset is somewhat compromised today because a void lunar cycle begins at 3:37AM and continues all the way until 10:02AM tomorrow.  From a positive standpoint, a supportive, 60-degree alliance between Mercury and Chiron (7:47AM) directs you toward looking into the merits of a wide variety of holistic healing techniques.  The key discordant aspect of the day arrives at 5:23PM when Mars in Libra squares Pluto in Capricorn. Any struggle between these two celestial bodies almost always results in earthly battles — often regarding emotional matters — that can leave the combatants angry and exhausted. Do your best to stay away from temperamental individuals or anyone who speaks too rashly and quickly without considering the consequences.
