APRIL 23— APRIL 29

Astrological Highlights for the week: Venus enters Gemini on Tuesday; Mars joins Pluto on Thursday; and Sunday brings a Full Moon in Scorpio.

Venus in Gemini makes me smile. Not sure exactly why, it just does. Maybe it’s because when we think of love and romance, we so quickly look towards the end goal that might include committed partnership, marriage, kids, homes, yard work, responsibilities, and having our whole lives planned out. Hold your horses. Venus in Gemini definitely has other plans!

When Venus enters the intellectual, versatile, and talkative sign of Gemini on Tuesday, we lighten up those expectations. Love and romance viewed through the twin lenses of Gemini means variety, stimulation, intellectual conversation, options, and above all else, communication. These are the folks who write romance novels, romantic comedy scripts, and old-fashioned love letters. Talks through the night, texting non-stop, daily phone calls when apart, the need to share ideas and talk about your day – this is what you can expect when Venus moves through Gemini (ruled by Mercury). Communication is sexy!

You might not be too surprised to learn Venus in Gemini is not overly fond of rules and commitment. Although maybe not so devoted to freedom as her opposite sign of Sagittarius, she needs room to flirt, socialize, and explore her options. This four-week period is great for social activities of all sorts, networking, and all forms of communication, and creativity that includes words, speaking, and writing. When it comes to love and relationships, lighten up and have some fun.

The explosion you hear midweek, Thursday to be specific, that’s just energetic Mars colliding with Pluto, the transformer in determined and commanding Capricorn. When earth energy moves, well, think earth quakes. Not physical ones, but nevertheless fairly profound and influential. This is a combustive high energy hookup that can move mountains. The trick is to respect and harness this energy very carefully. When we let our egos take the lead, power struggles and typically macho blustery chest pounding behavior results. When we take control of our thoughts and consciously move with purpose, there is very little that can stand in our way. This can be initiating, assertive and unlimited energy directed very purposefully. Want to align your intentions and actions with a goal that will transform your life? Step right up!

We move from outward loud displays of energetic power mid-week to quiet, yet equally profound inner turbulence on Sunday with the Full Moon in Scorpio. We can fool some of the people some of the time; but trying to fool ourselves is just plain silly. The Moon in complex and sensitive Scorpio is feeling very introspective and we might feel an irresistible urge to spend some time alone soul searching, reading, meditating, or simply thinking about issues that disturb our peace of mind. Therapy or a discipline of any kind that can help us see more clearly and without defenses can be personally transformational.

This is a time for frank and genuine honesty, not a time to judge, assign blame, or look for excuses or scapegoats. When we are willing to journey deeply with an open heart and mind we are rewarded. Mysteries and secrets are revealed and our ability to connect with an inner guide and teacher becomes the foundation and source of our power.

Making significant and desired changes is facilitated by taking the time to take a closer look at our thoughts and feelings. Disciplined Saturn in Capricorn awaits the results of our inner reflection, promising to build foundations based on whatever we decide is our purpose and direction. On a more mundane level, this Full Moon energy supports looking more deeply at anything that intrigues us. It’s a great time for studying esoteric or spiritual ideas, connecting with Nature and with your intuition, and seeking guidance. In a nutshell, this Full Moon holds the power of change and transformation that comes with self-awareness and an unflinching devotion to honesty.

Until next week, let go and wear loose clothes.

MONDAY
APRIL 23
MOON in LEO

Thought for the Day: Slow down; you move too fast

These aren’t just catchy words from a pop song. We have a tendency today to move quickly – maybe impulsively – following an idea or plan without really considering the underlying purpose or intention. A delay, obstacle, or distraction may tempt a decision to move quickly in a new direction to circumvent the problem; but is that the best answer? Delays can be frustrating; but a new plan hastily cobbled together may end up being an unnecessary detour that takes us farther from the desired result or goal.

The Moon in Leo is creative and dramatic. Are we making mountains out of molehills? Try playing with some ideas and solutions instead of making snap decisions. Also beware of trying to do the “expected” or “appropriate” thing, especially if you are doing it only to please or impress others. It can be exhausting playing a role that doesn’t fit! A lunar square to Jupiter this evening could mean our efforts feel superficial and ineffective. However, late night when energetic Mars in practical Capricorn connects with Jupiter in thoughtful Scorpio, we can successfully partner our intentions with our actions. If a problem leaves you befuddled early in the day, this late night planetary liaison may just be the energy that helps you find the right solution.

Daily Muse: I think of life itself now as a wonderful play that I've written for myself, and so my purpose is to have the utmost fun playing my part. (Shirley MacLaine)

TUESDAY
APRIL 24
MOON in LEO/VIRGO

Moon goes Void of Course at 11:39am enters Virgo at 1:40pm PDT

Venus enters Gemini 9:40am PDT

Thought for the Day: Spread your wings

With Venus in the last degree of Taurus, early morning affection and intimacy or a satisfying stack of pancakes with all the trimmings may be on the agenda. But by mid-morning when Venus enters the intellectual, versatile, and talkative sign of Gemini, we have other things on our minds and in our hearts. Love and romance viewed through the twin lenses of Gemini means variety, stimulation, intellectual conversation, options, and above all else, communication. These are the folks who write romance novels, romantic comedy scripts, and old-fashioned love letters. Talks through the night, texting non-stop, daily phone calls when apart, the need to share ideas and talk about your day – this is what you can expect when Venus moves through Gemini (ruled by Mercury). Communication is sexy!

You might not be too surprised to learn Venus in Gemini is not overly fond of rules and commitment. Although maybe not so devoted to freedom as her opposite sign of Sagittarius, she needs room to flirt, socialize, and explore her options. This four-week period is great for social activities of all sorts, networking, and all forms of communication, and creativity that includes words, speaking, and writing.

The Leo Moon’s connection to Uranus before Noon sparks a need for freedom and maybe a small rebellion; but when the Moon enters dutiful Virgo this afternoon and squares Venus we may feel like our wings get clipped, at least a touch. Not to fret, the situation is temporary and we can find satisfaction in grounding ourselves with a lunar alignment with the Sun (both in earth signs) tonight. The Moon in detailed Virgo is keeping track of what’s what. A comfy dinner at home alone or with family will fit the bill. Don’t forget to tidy up the kitchen and for good measure you might consider paying some bills or answering over-due e-mails or messages. This Virgo Moon feels better when things are orderly and in their place. Although staying organized and up to date with everything in our chaotic lives may seem more like an ideal than a reality, doing what we can feels grounding and a comfort when a Virgo Moon illuminates the skies.

Daily Muse: If I had a flower for every time I thought of you...I could walk through my garden forever. (Lord Alfred Tennyson, Venus in Gemini)

WEDNESDAY
APRIL 25
MOON in VIRGO

Thought for the Day: Constructive criticism – Oxymoron?

It’s unfortunate Virgo gets branded with the reputation of being the complainer and critic of the zodiac. But as with every stereotype, there is a reason and /or a seed of truth. This idealistic sign sets very high standards for themselves, others, and the world. As one of the double, mutable signs, Virgo dances between the need for solitude and the desire to be of service. With a keen incisive and analytical mind, why would anyone object to hearing her assessment of their weaknesses or frailties? Shouldn’t it be motivating to understand what you are doing wrong and how you can do it better?

Today’s Virgo Moon definitely leans into her role as critic. But it’s not just others under the magnifying glass. We can be pretty hard on ourselves as well, evaluating and recording all our perceived flaws. This aspect of the Virgo Moon may be keenly felt today as Mercury, ruler of Virgo and planet of thinking and communication, squares off with disciplined Saturn in no-nonsense Capricorn. If ever there was a set up for feeling criticized, judged and victimized this might be it!

So how do we handle it? First, remember you are not a victim, you are a decision maker. Events happen; perceptions and interpretations are created by our own minds. If you are feeling out of sorts or critical of others, take a step back. Chances are, we are feeling unhappy with ourselves. If you are tempted to judge your own, for grins, let’s say “faults”, take a step back too. Notice your feelings and connect with your inner guide and teacher. Is there something to be learned here?

Mercury square Saturn can be a tough energy when we feel our ideas are no good or we are being misunderstood or portrayed unfairly. If we lose our tempers, we may inadvertently blurt out a secret or confidence. This is a good time to honor your need for privacy and solitude. Remember what keeps you grounded and thinking clearly. With Venus in Gemini this is a good time to lighten up and connect in meaningful ways with others. And by the way, is criticism and judgment ever constructive?

Daily Muse: The person who knows how to laugh at himself will never cease to be amused. (Shirley MacLaine)

THURSDAY
APRIL 26
MOON in VIRGO/LIBRA

Moon goes Void of Course at 2:49am enters Libra at 6:13pm PDT

Thought for the Day: Full steam ahead!

The Virgo Moon switches things up today focusing not on considering how to change the world to make it a better place, and instead gets to work MAKING her world a better place. We are less likely to sit around criticizing and more willing to dig in and get our hands dirty. And we might get them very dirty indeed. The most powerful planetary interaction today is this afternoon when energetic Mars collides with Pluto, the transformer, both in determined and commanding Capricorn.

This is a combustive high energy hookup that can move mountains. The trick is to respect and harness this energy very carefully. When we let our egos take the lead, power struggles and typically macho blustery chest pounding behavior results. When we take control of our thoughts and consciously move with purpose, there is very little that can stand in our way. This can be initiating, assertive and unlimited energy directed very purposefully. Want to align your intentions and actions with a goal that will transform your life? Step right up!

This evening the Moon glides gracefully into harmony seeking Libra. A charming little lunar connection with Venus sweetens the rest of the night.

Daily Muse: The truth about success and opportunity is they require some risk and adventure. Be careful not to miss them all together by allowing your fears and doubts to overshadow them. You are destined to become all that you were supposed to be. Start now in small ways to prepare for success. (Melisa Pearce)

FRIDAY
APRIL 27
MOON in LIBRA

Thought for the Day: Romance is in the Air

Although there are a few pesky lunar connections today that threaten to rain on our parade, we just aren’t interested in any dark clouds or sad stories. Not today. The Libra Moon is looking for love, partnership, romance, or at least, reconciliation. If we are lucky enough to be in love or involved in an all-consuming passion of any sort, the little details that ordinarily would bother us just don’t seem to matter. We are single-minded when pursuing what we love or entangled in a delightful romantic web.

This is a terrific evening for a romantic rendezvous or to settle disagreements. If you personally are not in an intimate relationship, it doesn’t mean you can’t participate in the game of love. Maybe you can facilitate someone else’s love life by setting your best friend up with a blind date, babysitting for a sibling or neighbor in dire need of a couples night out, or get some of your friends together for a social evening of music, dance or a night watching romantic films. This Libra Moon encourages us to honor the dream of passionate and romantic love.

Daily Muse: I never wanted to be a star; I never wanted to travel far. I only wanted a little bit of love so I could put a little love in my heart. I never wanted to be la-de-da, go to parties ‘avec le bourgeois’. I only wanted to sing my song well so I could ring a small bell in your heart. (Yusuf Islam, Venus in Gemini)

Today on the Friday Morning Show, please join me for a thoughtful discussion based on A Course In Miracles. Why wait for heaven? You will find me on 12Radio.com at 8 am Pacific – 11 Eastern.

SATURDAY
APRIL 28
MOON in LIBRA

Moon goes Void of Course at 10:32PM enters Scorpio Sunday 12:11am PDT

Thought for the Day: Sidestep pot holes with creativity and a positive outlook

It may be a little difficult to keep our cool today as the Moon sequentially stirs up powerful Pluto, agitates Mars, and provokes rebellious Uranus. But still the gracious and accommodating Libra Moon elevates the idea of harmony and good manners above all else. Ok so there are a few bumps in the road or gnats in the salad! It’s all good; right? LOL!

The emotional energy is very fluid and changeable today; but nevertheless, filled with hope and creative possibilities. Use your intuition and imagination to create a positive space and flow. Shortly after midnight tonight, dreams take us deeper into our feelings and unconscious mind as the Moon dives into mysterious Scorpio. A few hours later, the Sun in Taurus makes a positive alignment with disciplined Saturn; our dreams may be filled windows and doors into new possibilities. It won’t be the first time someone got a brilliant idea while sleeping!

Daily Muse: Everyone has oceans to fly, if they have the heart to do it. Is it reckless? Maybe. But what do dreams know of boundaries? (Amelia Earhart

SUNDAY
APRIL 29
FULL MOON IN SCORPIO
  • FULL MOON 10º Scorpio 5:58pm PDT

Thought for the Day: Lighten up

The great transformer, Pluto begins a lengthy retrograde pattern today. The planet furthest from the Sun retrogrades for about 5 months every year so this is nothing out of the ordinary. However, it does indicate a slight change as we find more answers by looking inward than outward. Balancing action with planning is one of its hallmarks especially in the manifesting sign of Capricorn.

The Moon emerges from the sensitivity of Cancer and heads into the self-expressive sign of Leo in late morning. Even though egos can be vulnerable in this dramatic sign, we can get beyond our own needs to see what others want and desire. Of course, in truth, reading others may be our way of making sure our own needs will be met! Oh well, that's not too surprising is it? This Leo Moon is playful and certainly understands you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar so we too will find lightening our approach will be more satisfying than manipulation or force. A light and gentle touch and not taking ourselves too seriously is the strategy for the day.

A sweet alliance between Venus and Neptune increases creativity and imagination. Look for answers in unexpected places.

Daily Muse: When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed. (Maya Angelou)

Out Of Mo's Mind
Mo

I think we can all agree that these are very interesting times. The question is, what are we supposed to do? How do we deal with the circumstances of the world and the way they affect us? Luckily, dealing with the many forms of divination we have, there's always something to turn to beyond our common sense, especially since very few of us have experienced these sorts of complications before.

I'm not only talking about politics. I'm talking about the change of generations, the tensions of living in a society that seems to be changing swiftly, often without rhyme or reason. I’m confounded by this era of Internet superstars, YouTube personalities with millions of followers making hundreds of thousands of dollars from it. I’m living in a time when pet videos go viral and those cute critters have high powered agents to represent them. It’s a time when questionable talent has come to represent the epitome of popularity.

Television viewing has become an obstacle course of violence, abuse, moral corruption, bullying and heightened paranoia, not unlike the real world that it reflects. I won’t even get into music.

The so-called real world is that realm of reality in which we must function. It's easy to blame others for the problems caused by others, but such finger-pointing only delays positive change. What is important, is to honestly, and with clarity, discern what the issues are for us. There are times when it absolutely helps to follow the thread back to the origination point of any issue, as it may help us to keep from stumbling over those points of decay again. More often than not, it's best to move forward and keep vigilant to make sure that we can sidestep the rot and move on.

Just because we may not be political, it doesn't mean that we aren't involved in politics. Just because we aren't international travelers, it doesn't mean that we aren't affected by the poverty and horrific acts of barbarism perpetrated upon others, thousands of miles away. I often say that it's impossible to poison only one portion of a well. The contamination of the fluidity of being human must involve us all. This seems to be more true than ever. We call the rapid dissemination of information, some of it ridiculous, to be viral.

As we are all connected, we have the ability to affect the world positively by simply being conscious and moving forward in our own way. Those of us concerned with spirituality and metaphysical living, may not involve ourselves with the comings and goings of big business, Capitol Hill, world powers, or any of the other myriad complications that run the world. However, thinking that we are not directly connected to those massive institutions is an abdication of responsibility. We make a difference.

This brings me back to my original question. What are we supposed to do? Luckily, the answer is incredibly simple. Live our lives following our moral compass and never be afraid to lead others on that path, even if only by implication. This doesn't mean standing on a stump and proselytizing. It does mean being available for others, not wallowing in self-importance or greed, and completely understanding that every single one of us has a duty to each other, and not only those that we like. That duty is to fight the forces of corruption with patience, hope, and complete faith in the fact that you are doing something important.

There is a movement designed to make us afraid. Fear is a controlling energy, one that makes people buy things they don't need, make decisions that they should not make, shun those that should be embraced, and even submit to those who profess authority of knowledge who have none.

We mustn't blame the past for where we are now. That wasn’t our doing. Be here now. We can, and should, concern ourselves with our futures. That’s the fun part. I’m not only hopeful, but absolutely determined to help make that future as bright and happy as possible. It takes being consciously aware, optimistic, inventive and honest while following your path and moral compass. Such power will always bring light to the darkness. Let’s do it together.

Until next week, I wish you all peace and love.

Your Aura

Everyone senses auras. Think about it for a minute. Have you ever met a person and “felt” something emanating from them that either attracted you to them or repelled you from them? You sensed their aura and it gave you information about them. We use this information instinctively, it is not usually conscious.

There are great benefits to learning to be conscious of the information the auras around you are sharing. For example, you go into work planning to ask for a raise. You sense from your boss’s aura that her energy is red and jagged and pushes you back. This tells you that she is irritated, worried about money and hoping that her employees give her some space. Not a great day to ask for a raise. So you wait a couple of days. Then you sense from your boss’s aura that her energy is blue, calm and open. This tells you that she is feeling good, open to communication and in a good place emotionally. This is a great day to ask for a raise!

Our auras change constantly throughout the day. The quality of your sleep, how your morning routine flows, your mood and the interactions you have with your loved ones will set the tone for your day. You have the power to change your aura if things don’t start out great. There are simple skills that you can use any time to change your energy if something sets you off. Have you ever had a bad experience first thing in the morning and thought “Great, now my day is ruined!” This is a myth we tell ourselves. It is always possible to recover from an irritation and have a good day. Learning to understand your energy body gives you the power to turn anything around. One easy way to recover your good mood and happy aura is to take a White Light Shower. Simply visualize that you are standing under a luminous cloud of energy, allow the cloud to rain white light down upon you, clearing away any energy that does not serve you. Your shower is over when you feel your energy is bright and clear.

We are constantly projecting information from our auras to those around us. What are you projecting? Is it what you want others to feel from you? Are you attracting people and situations that are good for you, or do you seem to always attract what you don’t want?

Join me for Kindred Spirits on 12radio.com, Monday 4/23. We will explore strategies to develop and maintain a healthy aura.
Much love,
Kristi

WEEKLY GRACE 

Welcome to Taurus

As the fast & furious Aries draws to a close, Taurus(an Earth sign)turns our attention to building. Aquarius brought us awareness, Pisces an emotional connection and Aries the vigor to make it happen! Taurus is time to roll up our sleeves and craft a tangible planto allow our best lives to become a reality!

Productivity shall be the reigning Queen! This is the time to catch a breath and find our focus once again. Ever wonder how to make Manifestation happen? Ask a Cap., Virgo or Taurus! These Earth signs can talk metaphysical philosophy - but at the end of the day, it comes down to the practical and tangible world. We can say we have belief, faith or a conviction. But for the Earth signs, you reveal yourself not through what you say but what you DO!!!

Ruled by the hardworking Bull and sensual Venus, Taurus will patiently assess whether something is worth the investment of their time and resources. Taurus energy really weighs the pros and cons to every pursuit. Though not shy of hard work, they prefer to only invest in things worthy of their attention.

Aries season fired up our creativity and desires, but now, life moves at a much slower pace. This doesn't mean things get boring, but the focus should be on inventoring, analyzing and discovering what in your plan is and isn't working. The Bull is sensual, a bit selfish and stubborn; but absolutely genius, crafty and magnetic! Your best relationship this month will be with yourself- a very important point to remember!!! But if you don't know the answers, be sure to reach out. This can be a pitfall of this energy. The shadow side of Taurus energy is our comfort zones and habits. It’s possible that you’re just really, really committed to following your path-- but is this path the absolute best for you? It takes total humility and honesty, but know, there is NOTHING shameful about an "upgrade". But you can't do it alone!!!

Enjoy life’s pleasures... mindfully!

Taurus rules the neck, throat and jaw, which means you will also be focused on "speaking your truth". We can't speak our truth, set boundaries or be expressive if we aren't honest with ourselves. Make sure to focus on the root, before the branches! Music, journaling and singing are all inspiring to the Taurus.

Once we make up our minds and get moving in a certain direction during Taurus season, there’s no stopping us! Watch out for isolation, resistance and fear. If your perfectly calculated plan is failing you, trust in the process instead of freaking out! It's just a pivot point; an indicator of a better way to accomplish your goals. Let go of any attachments to a particular outcome or path; roll with the punches. Clinging to the things that we can’t control only leads to self-imposed suffering. Taurus loves life WAY TOO MUCH to allow that to happen!

Wishing you an AMAZING Taurus Season,

Grace
