The Moon is relatively quiet this morning, and late this afternoon our creativity will be unleashed with a trine from the Moon to Uranus at 12:45 pm.  The creativity of Uranus is different than Neptunian creativity, which is more flowing.  With Uranus, we experience sudden flashes of brilliant ideas that inspire and excite us.  

Mercury enters its own sign Gemini tonight at 6:30 pm EDT, where for the next few weeks it will inspire us to hone our communication skills, engage in debate and embrace other views, and adapt more easily to our surroundings.  Mercury is beginning to slow down in preparation for its retrograde turn on May 6-7 so even though our minds may be more active under the Gemini influence we will be somewhat hampered in communication efforts.  This may be particularly problematic when Mercury retrogrades back into Taurus on May 14.  Mercury in Gemini is able to adapt when our experiences are blocked, but in Taurus we can become more easily stuck in old patterns of thinking that can create problems when communication is difficult in the retrograde period.

The Moon enters Leo tonight at around 9 pm EDT, opening the heart to seek a genuine joy, and a harmonious sextile to Mercury at the same time facilitates understanding and an ability to communicate our feelings to others.  Things get even better as the night goes on and the Moon forms a trine to Venus at 1 am on April 30 EDT bringing an overall sense of peace and an open heart.

    What would one do in a case like this? I have an interview with a potential client. I cannot put it off and when we meet we will be making some decision to work together or not. This is not someone I know to be astrology friendly.

    Hi Cecelia – in my real estate world we have to sign contracts when Mercury is retrograde. I can’t tell clients “wait three weeks until Mercury turns direct,” and those contracts always close although there are typically difficulties along the way.
    We still have to go about our day to day lives, but we will be more successful if we work hard to make certain that communication goes smoothly. When you meet with your client, and if the decision is made to work together, do everything you can to be sure that there is a meeting of the minds regarding expectations. And expect that there will be renegotiations along the way, and possibly adjustment.

Sunday inspiration: Trusting the future
Astrologers have a reputation, which we ourselves and our forbears have propagated, of being able to foretell the future.  If you run a Google search for "Can astrology predict the future," the very first article is from a well-known astrology site titled "Predicting the future with astrology."

Neptune in Pisces and the question of reality
Neptune just slipped back into Pisces where it will remain until 2025.  Neptune's role in the astrological pantheon is to cause us to question where the physical world ends and a more transcendent reality begins.  It therefore rules our spiritual experience, but it can also be confusing and induce

Sunday inspiration: The Great Nest of Being
"Whenever we moderns pause for a moment, and enter the silence, and listen very carefully, the glimmer of our deepest nature begins to shine forth, and we are introduced to the mysteries of the deep, the call of the within, the infinite radiance of a splendor that time and space forgot - we are intr
