April 26: The sun is conjunct Uranus

Seeing options illuminated



The sun is conjunct Uranus at 2:01 a.m.


The sun in Taurus comes together in a conjunction with innovative Uranus very early in the morning, an echo of the new moon conjunction on April 23. What we may have been sitting with and contemplating passively that day has now come into the light of conscious perception and active awareness today. Perhaps we are now seeing options illuminated that were not on our radar before? It certainly points to energy and activity being channeled into earthly concerns, where we are applying insight and invention to the material challenges of our times.


The moon is conjunct Venus at 9:39 a.m., and trine Mars at 12:55 p.m.


The waxing moon in active Gemini joins Venus in a conjunction as the day begins, potentially getting us all off to a lively start. A feel-good vibe is likely to permeate the mood of the day, stimulating urges to be expressive and loving in our connections. While our usual venues for socializing are not accessible at the moment, we can be creative with our limitations by finding ways to tap into our communities or honor romantic connections with our dear ones. 


Just after noon, the moon in Gemini forms an air trine with Mars in Aquarius, infusing our feel-good day with activity and initiative. It’s important for us to enjoy the air and space that we do have available to us, whether that is physical, metaphorical or both, for our emotional and social well-being.



The moon is square Neptune at 3:31 p.m.


By the late afternoon, the lively Gemini moon forms a square aspect with Neptune in soulful Pisces, representing a clash and amplification of these two different planetary energies. This aspect is one that supports idealism and escapism to some extent, as we indulge in fantasies and big ideas. It could be a good aspect to enjoy for its momentary reprieve from harsh reality, and the creative stimulation it could yield, but beware that our logical side may be a little cloudy.
