Today’s cosmic weather sets a new, earthy tone!

April 18, 2024

At 5:02 a.m.: The moon is trine the sun and the moon void of course begins

In the pre-dawn hours, the Leo moon trines the Aries sun, offering confidence and inspiring originality. We eagerly greet the morning with a can-do attitude. Challenges are addressed and quickly squashed. Relationship dramas dissipate. Because we take the bold approach, others clock us as natural leaders and make no mistake, we aim to impress! Their esteem also inclines us to cooperate – as long as we get to keep our delegation role. Lean into your creativity and powers of imagination to improve upon your current circumstances. However, the moon will enter a void of course following this aspect lasting two hours, a period more optimal for finalizing projects than launching them. Wait until later in the morning to start up something new.

At 7:10 a.m.: The moon enters Virgo and the moon void of course ends

After sun-up, the moon enters Virgo, exiting its short void of course. Tomorrow, the sun will enter grounded and sensual Taurus, so the moon’s ingress to equally reality-bound terrain will help to ferry in earth sign energy by setting a stabilizing emotional tone. The Virgo moon is ideal for any activities requiring organization, structure, and streamlining. This is a time to focus on the small details and draw confidence from creating order out of chaos. Use the next two days for problem-solving pursuits. Just remember not to get down on yourself if you fall short of an imaginary standard of perfection. We are only human, after all. Some margin of error is to not only be anticipated, but honored as an essential part of our learning curve.
