Astrology: Astro-Weather, Week of April 13-19, 2011
By Guy Spiro
Week of April 13-19, 2011
Wednesday, April 13—The major cautionary energy mentioned yesterday peaks this morning and will remain in effect through today and well into tomorrow, at least. It is related to and extends the cautions from Monday, and this cautionary period runs from last Sunday through tomorrow. This energy easily leads to people running into restrictions, frustrations, lack and other hit-the-wall kinds of experiences. Some will not respond well to this, and foolish acting out can bring harsher and longer-lasting consequences than at other times. Add the lingering related energy to it, and some people will make headlines. Don’t be among them. Switch to damage control mode at the first sign of problems. Aside from major energy, take a communicative, expansive approach in the mid-predawn into the early morning, but watch for erratic emotional responses and spaciness. The late morning into the early afternoon may have minor erratic relationship issues and coercive attitudes, but good moods follow soon after. Be aware that the moon will be void of course from 2:57 this afternoon into tomorrow’s early predawn.
Thursday, April 14—Yesterday’s moon void of course period ends at 1:39 this morning, when the moon enters Virgo. At that point, the energy will lift noticeably, and general moods tend to become more discerning and concerned with detail. The high cautionary energy from the past few days will tend to linger through today. Reread back to last Sunday or so, and apply the warnings carefully. There is another cautionary energy to be aware of. It peaks tomorrow, but will come into focus through today. Read tomorrow’s forecast, and apply it today and especially tonight. Aside from the major energies, watch the predawn following the void of course into the early morning for spaciness, argumentativeness, erratic emotional responses and exaggerated emotional responses. These energies by themselves would not amount to much, but in a long string can try anyone’s patience. The early afternoon is mixed. Take a cooperative approach, and avoid relationship issues. The late afternoon through the evening contributes more minor irritability, erratic aggressiveness and hard attitudes. Moods should improve in the late night, and a communicative and disciplined approach will bring the best results. This is a day for some good choices.
Friday, April 15—The cautionary energy mentioned yesterday peaks early this afternoon and runs on into tomorrow. This energy easily brings problems to communication and transportation, especially where those overdoing the recreational substances and the otherwise out-of-it are involved. The space cases will be on parade, and if you see someone who seems a nugget short of a Happy Meal, your first impression is probably correct. Be especially careful in traffic. Another major energy comes into focus through today that will stimulate activity in relationships. This can be a good thing, or not. Watch for a potential compulsiveness and tendency to get carried away. Just because it seems so right to one party does not mean the other will see it that way. Avoid any temptation to push or try to force anything. This will likely be a high-energy social Friday night, but one to be careful with. Also be aware that the moon will be void of course from 3:48 this afternoon into tomorrow’s predawn, and take that into account tonight.
Saturday, April 16—Yesterday’s moon void of course period ends at 1:58 this morning, when the moon enters Libra. At that point, the energy will lift, and general moods tend to become more concerned with balance, beauty and fairness. Late Friday-night social scenes will get a big boost in energy when the void of course ends. Do remember the cautions from yesterday, however, as they will remain in effect through today. Be aware of two more major energies today. The first is likely to generate a great deal of activity in communication and transportation. Remember that Mercury is retrograde, however, and try to focus on cleaning up details from the past. You will notice energy levels rising throughout today as the second major energy, tomorrow night’s full moon, comes into focus. Consider the full-moon period to start at the end of the void of course, and remember that full moons tend to inflate and exaggerate whatever is going on. Minor energies are of no help today, and good choices will be needed throughout. This will obviously be a high-energy social Saturday night, but one to deal carefully with.
Sunday, April 17—Today is full-moon day. It is exact at 9:44 tonight. Remember that full moons are always high energy and deserve to be approached with respect and sometimes caution. This is one of those times. Very high but contradictory energy was active at the new moon and all manner of positive, and not so much things may have been put into motion. A major cautionary energy peaks tomorrow, but comes into focus through today. It is a continuation of last week’s cautions, and is in bad combination with the full moon. Read tomorrow’s forecast and apply the warning carefully through today and especially tonight. Be aware that the moon will be void of course from 9:44 tonight into tomorrow’s early predawn.
Monday, April 18—Last night’s moon void of course period ends at 1:19 this morning, when the moon enters Scorpio. At that point, the energy shifts, and general moods tend to become more intense and passionate. The full moon and all of the high energy and occurrences connected to it will remain very much with us through today and tomorrow. Be aware of two major energies today. The first is the one mentioned yesterday. This energy easily leads to people experiencing restrictions, frustrations, lack and foolishly acting out on them. Anyone who had problems with this last week will be more prone to falling prey to it again, and some will find it just never went away but has resurfaced in a stronger form. Be very careful with this energy, as consequences from running afoul of it can be harsher and longer lasting than at other times. The second can be good for strengthening and solidifying relationships. Make a positive gesture in an appropriate situation, and it may well be reciprocated. If it is not well received, however, just back away and do not try to push things, not with all of this other energy. Minor energies are mixed, but not a great deal of help. Take a friendly, cooperative and disciplined approach as you make wise choices through this day.
Tuesday, April 19—Remember to consider the full moon and all of its attendant high energy to remain with us through today. Reread yesterday, and be especially careful of the cautionary. Be aware of another major energy today. It is normally very good for initiating projects involving communication and transportation. Remember that Mercury remains retrograde for a few more days, however, and use this energy to clean up details and work on projects from the past. Minor energies are once again of little help, and good choices will be needed. Be aware that the moon will be void of course from 11:54 tonight into tomorrow’s predawn.
