This Week's Intention: Move with the changing tides. Be creative with the changes.
Your creativity determines how well you will thrive.
Monday begins with Moon finishing up its transit through Cancer, its own sign, where it is conjunct exalted Jupiter. Both receive drishti (gaze) from Mars and Ketu, adding some emotional fire and tenacity.
Early morning Moon jumps into Leo and Magha nakshatra and sparks fly! Extra pressure may be felt as Moon receives drishti from Saturn now. The ancestors arrive with information and resources. Are you paying attention? Leo's ruling planet, Sun, is exalted in Aries right now with Moon waxing. Be aware of the heat today and do all that you can to work consciously with the pressure. Cool off! Let the steam out!
Mercury has just moved to Taurus, joining Venus here in its own sign. Imaginal Mercury and Creative Venus do quite well together and invite inspiration and increased ideas to appear. We don't have to act upon every idea, but pay special attention in the coming weeks to those ideas that are worth activating. Once Venus moves to Gemini on May 2nd, these transits offer an exchange of signs (Venus rules Taurus and Mercury rules Gemini). Extra creativity is available to us and our relationships will be an important part of the creative process. Collaborate, co-create and communicate effectively what you need. Once Mars moves into Taurus on May 3rd, action steps become more important. Use this time to manifest your desires and put action behind them. Get what you want by saying what you mean and meaning what you say; then take it forth.
Late morning on Tuesday, Moon shifts into Bhaga's domain, Purvaphalguni. Sensuality and pleasure rule the day. Get creative and let your artistry flow. Relate, co-create and communicate. Try doing this in some unusual or foreign way for better results. Notice where you are stuck in old patterns and not getting the results you want.
Early afternoon Wednesday, Moon moves to the latter half of the Phalguni stars. Aryaman rules over Uttaraphalguni and reminds us how to sustain and nurture relationships and our creativity for lasting results. What do you bring to your relationships? What is your offering, your unique power? Turn on the light. Early evening, Moon moves to Virgo, joining Rahu, who brings illusions and intensity as well as worldly successes.

Moon continues to conjunct Rahu on Thursday transiting Uttaraphalguni the majority of the day. What desires are intensifying? What illusions are overshadowing you? Relationships are a main theme right now and may cause pleasure, pain or both. Notice your role in the tango. What actions and choices do you need to make for change? Communicate clearly.
As Moon shifts into Hasta nakshatra late afternoon, Savitr brings the possibility of new awareness, awakening and more light to shine on our darkness. Notice if any new insights emerge to help you create lasting change.
Friday comes with a warning. Both Mars and Venus are sandhi, opening two portals between signs. Mars is at the edge of his own sign, Aries, moving towards Taurus. Venus is at the edge of his own sign, Taurus, heading into Gemini. Be aware of heat and aggression in your relationships and your emotional responses. As Moon separates from Rahu, the shadow effect on our emotional body is lessening. Being aware of our emotions is necessary to cultivate a deeper understanding of our needs. What is working? What isn't? As Moon shifts into Chitra early evening, the heat may flare. Are you dancing with the fire or getting burned? Who or what do you direct the flames?
Venus moves to Gemini on Saturday morning at 07:43 PDT. Venus does well in the creative and communicative sign of Gemini. With no aspects coming from other planets, Venus can more freely, express itself, create and co-create- as it loves to do. Use the coming weeks to let your creativity get out of hiding. Pull out your paints, craypas and dancing feet. Creativity determines how well you will thrive in your life. The more of it, the better. Work with it consciously. Need some creative support? Schedule a session with me.
As Moon moves to Libra early Saturday morning, relationship and commerce themes emerge. Both require connecting and communication as well as the fluidity of Venus. Venus is weak as it arrives into Gemini, so be mindful of the delicacy of co-creation today. Sandhi Mars and exalted Sun give their drishti seven houses away, heating up emotions and our action steps. Slow down, stop and think before speaking or acting. Moon moves to the 15th and final tithi (phase) late in the evening as it shifts into Swati nakshatra. Emotional tides are high.
High winds surface on Sunday as Swati nakshatra blows in. The winds of change are moving us.
Sunday brings a full Moon in Libra and Swati Nakshatra at 22:41 CDT. The powerful wind god, Vayu, ruling deity of Swati nakshatra, brings inevitable changes during this full Moon and the waning cycle to come. Whether he arrives as a light breeze or as a mighty gust, he offers us fresh air and the ability to clear the cobwebs from the corners and sweep the dust that has long settled. Sometimes a small clean out is all that is required, other times a massive house cleaning is in order. It’s important to note what is needed, and how Nature supports our housecleaning. How will you use these winds of change in the coming weeks? What are your wants and needs? What action steps must be taken in order for life changing shifts to be made?
