Astrology Update, April 14th, 2017: Truth in the Pattern

Today started with the Moon void-of-course in Scorpio, adrift in the dark, watery, receptive state of the feminine unconscious, absorbing the last of the lessons of this lunar transit before the Moon entered Sagittarius in the early morning hours.  

The Moon in Sagittarius marks a more emotionally active and expansive period, when our instincts are more generous and our immediate responses more philosophical and broad-minded.  Our tempers may be shorter now, our moods more volatile, but we are also more forgiving and adaptable, more interested in different points of view.  During this time we may find ourselves requiring more space, unconsciously still resonating with the urge toward freedom ignited in us with last night’s Sun/Uranus conjunction.  We are less likely to hide our truth now, speaking more forthrightly and acting more boldly, and we are far less reserved, but we also respond with more lightness than during the Moon’s Scorpio transit – our emotions are brighter and more mobile now, and our instinctive reactions less pointed.

This morning saw the Moon in Sagittarius squaring the North Node in Virgo, helping us to learn how the details we must attend to in fulfilling our souls’ purpose live up to our ideals, and where they fall short.  Any health challenges that we are experiencing may affect our ability to learn and connect on higher levels, or may limit the distance we can traverse in our pursuit of learning.  New skills may take longer to acquire than previously anticipated, or require more steps and a broader viewpoint.  We may want to take the longer view but get bogged down in details and process, but may also gain valuable insight about our relationship with details versus the bigger picture.

The skies are relatively quiet through the midday and afternoon, with the lone aspect of the evening being the conjunction of the Moon in Sagittarius with Black Moon Lilith, bringing two representatives of the unconscious feminine together as a fiery bookend to the day’s unconscious feminine start in the watery Scorpio void-of-course.  When these two get together the unconscious exerts a greater force on our lives, yet also has a greater potential for unconscious wisdom to become conscious, as Black Moon Lilith traverses the space between the Moon and the Sun, the unconscious and the conscious.  The experiences that we give ourselves most wholly to during this time will be those that have the best potential to yield insights from the unconscious to inform, stimulate, and expand our conscious selves.  This is a passionate conjunction, an extra sense of aliveness in what we do and how we feel, a vitality that can help us more forward into the larger pattern.

All aspect times used in creating this post are calculated for Pacific Standard Time.  I tend to speak in broad terms when I reference time on this blog, referring to time-frames like “morning” or “afternoon” rather than specific times, since I still have a lot of friends on the East Coast who read these posts and I’d like them to be pertinent to those friends as well as folks here on the West Coast.  Readers from further abroad will need to adjust time-frames accordingly.

Please keep in mind that we all have different responses to the aspects of the day because we all have different natal and progressed charts with which these aspects interact.  If you would like to know more about your own natal and progressed charts in order to better understand how the aspects of the day will affect you, please take a look at my astrological services, and let’s get started on helping you to understand your life better!  The threads of fate can only be adjusted when we start from a place of deep self-knowing.
