April 28: Mercury is square Saturn
Our path forward
The moon is square Chiron at 12:13 a.m.
At midnight, the Cancer moon forms a square aspect with Chiron in Aries, activating awareness around themes of soul healing. Since the square aspect causes friction and challenge, it could represent the potent emotional awareness of the moment is drawing up some uncomfortable feelings, memories, or emotional patterns, so that we may work with these more closely. The feelings may be at first overwhelming and difficult but could be connected to something that needs to be confronted and released so that we can ultimately enjoy more freedom and ease with ourselves.
The moon is sextile the sun at 2:38 a.m.
A few hours later, the potently nurturing Cancer moon forms a sextile with the sun in Taurus, activating the waxing crescent phase of the lunar cycle. With the lunar and solar energetics of the moment working harmoniously together through the elements of water and earth, this is a moment of activation between emotions and practicality to help us gain momentum on a tangible level. Intuition is likely to be especially strong, and perceptions both grounded and clear, so any lunar intentions that have formed over the last few days are likely to start materializing. We have our work cut out for us for the next month, and our path forward is more defined.
Mercury is square Saturn at 10:28 a.m.
Mercury, newly in dependable Taurus, forms a triggering square with Saturn in objective Aquarius in the late morning, bringing some potential friction and obstacles in understanding and our communications. Mercury wants to bear down into a methodical mode in Taurus, while Saturn puts stress on us all while restricting our social systems, possibly arising frustration and urgency for solutions. We want to be thorough and logical, yet the challenges we face require swift, unprecedented action—and it may be hard to marry these two needs today.
