Astrology Update, April 22nd, 2017: Fantasies and Mysteries


After yesterday’s cosmic roller-coaster, today sees only a few astrological aspects spread across the day with plenty of time between them to aid in processing and provide some respite from celestial bombardment.  

The Moon in Pisces started the day off early this morning with a square to Black Moon Lilith in Sagittarius, pitting our unconscious against itself and creating emotional resistance between our need for autonomy in our beliefs and our sense of communion with the universal.  Since most of us in the Western Hemisphere were likely to be asleep at that hour, this may have played out in our dreams and created lingering feelings of uncertainty upon awakening, or may have led to restlessness that disturbed our sleep, increasing the likelihood of insomnia.  For those of us who were awake during this aspect, we may have found ourselves alternately longing for interaction and connection yet standoffish if any such connection presented itself.  We may have found ourselves feeling confined by our beliefs and experiences, wishing to expand our horizons yet distrustful and uncertain of how to do so.

This afternoon the Moon in Pisces conjuncted Neptune in Pisces, increasing our escapist tendencies and lending a sense of unreality to our experiences.  We were more prone to daydreaming and fantasy during this time, or even actual naps, and this could have been a challenging time for those of us prone to addiction, or even those imbibing casually, as our sense of realistic limits was likely to be impaired.  This was not a good time for any activity reliant on a clear grasp of the facts, nor for clear communication, and there was a strong potential for us to be deceived at this time or to be deluding ourselves with unrealistic expectations, especially in regard to our interactions with others.  On the other hand, we were likely to be more sensitive and able to sympathize with others during this transit, and our creative abilities were likely to be enhanced as well.

The skies are quiet for the rest of the afternoon and most of the evening until a late night sextile between the Moon in Pisces and Pluto retrograde in Capricorn lends some mystery and intensity to our feelings.  We are not content with superficial interactions during this time and are likely to seek out experiences that can satisfy our emotional need for depth and complexity now.  Relationships between friends and lovers can be strengthened now through exploration and revelation of our innermost feelings and motivations, and we can gain a much deeper understanding of ourselves and those we love during this transit.  This aspect can make us a bit obsessive in pursuit of what we desire now, but it can also help us to experience life more deeply and fully, and help us gain a greater understanding of the mysteries that connect us.


If you enjoyed this post, please consider becoming one of my supporters on Patreon, where I have posted the digital art that accompanies today’s analysis here, along with some background on its creation.  Not only will you get an inside look into my divinatory art, but you will also help keep this blog alive and me writing and creating art daily.  I am incredibly grateful for my supporters!

Or, if you’re not into the monthly pledge thing but still want to show some support and get some art in the process, please visit my RedBubble page, where a selection of my digital art and my divinatory drawings are available printed on everything from clothing to notebooks to cellphone cases, as well as art prints.  My Etsy shop is also a good place to visit for both printed art and wearables, as well as my hand-crafted herbal dream pillows.  Every sale helps me to continue what I do here, and I deeply appreciate the support!

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.
