April 6: The moon enters Libra

April 6: The moon enters Libra

Mobilizing clear directives


The moon is opposite Mercury at 2:49 a.m., is trine both Pluto at 6:15 a.m., and Jupiter at 6:29 a.m.

 Today’s very active cosmic weather begins early this morning with the Virgo moon forming an opposition with Mercury in empathic Pisces. This brings creativity, intuition, and a sense of spiritual expression into our awareness and connections today, underscoring the moon/Neptune polarity of last night. Then the moon forms a trine with both, Pluto and Jupiter in Capricorn, bringing the composed emotional tone of the moment into harmony with the greater changes and evolutions of our times.


The moon enters Libra at 2:16 p.m.

 In the afternoon, a lunar shift occurs again with the moon leaving earthy Virgo to move into airy and social Libra. The element of air is especially emphasized right now with Venus—Libra’s ruler—also in airy and effusive Gemini, setting the stage for a light, open, and more objective emotional tone. Virgo tends to be a more receptive, inwardly focused sign, where Libra is more active and outwardly motivated, making us feel more talkative and eager to connect with others today.


The moon is trine Saturn at 3:52 p.m., Venus at 6:56 p.m., and Mars at 10:20 p.m.

Throughout the late afternoon and evening, the peaceable Libran moon forms three key aspects to three major planetary forces forming a Grand Air Trine. These connections symbolize a turning point, where we may collectively feel like we are mobilizing clear directives in light of the concerning world events. The moon’s unifying position in Libra connects with Saturn and Mars in Aquarius, and Venus in Gemini may represent a rallying of forces to meet the pandemic and the cascade of difficulties it has caused with unity, fresh ideas, open communication, and clarity in the world. Though the challenges we are facing now may not be fully resolved, there is a tentative confidence returning to our society after the firm actions of the critical Mars and Saturn conjunction of March 31. We may be feeling like we are slowly moving toward solutions.
