The Astrologer Daily: April 16th, 2013
By Kelli Fox, The Astrologer
Today promises to be an emotional time, full of highs and lows. On the plus side, you’ll have a lovely opportunity to spend quality time with your friends and family. Let them lavish you with attention. You need all the tender loving care you can get, in order to cope with a stressful work situation.
The Moon in Cancer is making stressful angles to Mercury, Uranus, and Pluto. It’s hard not to take sarcastic remarks and inconsiderate behavior personally. When your feelings are hurt, retreat to some quiet place where you can collect yourself. Don’t wear your heart on your sleeve.
In the next few days, we’ll see people giving more thought to spiritual matters. Venus will form a supportive sextile to compassionate Neptune, causing people to be generous with their resources.
The Sun is at 26 degrees Aries, the Moon is in Cancer, Mercury is in Aries, Venus is in Taurus and Mars is in Aries. With this combination of planetary energies try to: Read up on leadership. Practice speaking. Ready to run for office? Try not to: Let your mind race at bedtime. Sleep, or be useless tomorrow.
Today’s exact aspects and their keywords are:
- Moon Trine Saturn: Make a Plan.
- Moon Square Mercury: Emotionally Based Thinking.
- Moon Square Uranus: ‘Go Away’ Glare.
- Moon Trine Neptune: Finding the Spirit.
- Moon Opposite Pluto: Emotional Awareness.
- Saturn, Pluto are retrograde.
And finally happy birthday to Martin Lawrence, Ellen Barkin and Peter Garrett. If it’s your birthday today, the year ahead will require you to develop a tougher shell. To succeed in your desired field, you’ll have to learn to cope with rejection. Don’t get discouraged when you get turned down for a job or opening. Just double your efforts and try again.
