Since the end of 2016 the planet Jupiter has been causing things to seem (and actually be) larger, more important, and more life changing than usual. First there was an opposition to the planet Uranus that caused things to happen that we never expected. No sooner did that start to fade away when Jupiter squared Pluto, which is still happening today. This has caused our lives to take dramatic turns. Some of us have to totally transform our paths. (This transit happens once every 12 years.) This will act as a background effect today while the Moon’s transit through Gemini will make us curious and communicative.
The Word of the Day is WISH. It’s the first step in getting what we want.
The Color of the Day is STARLIGHT. (It’s glittering white.) Wear the color of starlight today and have fantastically plotted ambitions.
We’ll be having a day when there are no new major astrological effects to tug us in one direction or another. (There is a minor one between Sun and Neptune.) However, the Sun, Moon and four planets are all traveling through signs that dream up and instigate action. Projects are started with flair and direct movement. We may find that we don’t want to work on things that are ongoing, nor do we want to finish any other projects. We are inspired by the fresh new ideas that we’ve been thinking up and discussing over the past few days. Under this influence life begins to expand and advance.
The Word of the Day is CREATE. Let’s feel the satisfaction of accomplishment as we begin new projects!
The Color of the Day is TABASCO. (It’s spicy red.) Wearing the color of the hot sauce Tabasco will rev up the day’s planetary influences and keep us going in the direction of our goals.
Throughout this month we’re going to feel like our relationships are not quite as straight-forward as they had been. Retrograde Venus has backed out of the headstrong sign, Aries and into the wistful sign Pisces. This sign sees the best in everyone and everything, and can create relationships and beautiful situations when before they would not have been considered. Imagination rules with Venus in Pisces. Helping to initiate us to this feeling, Venus will be passing by a star today that will indulge our minds with philosophy and fantasy. The Moon will be in compassionate sign, Cancer. Expect people’s feelings to be touchy today. We may need to tread gently.
The Word of the Day is IDEAL. Pisces dreams big, and today Venus will enter that sign and bring our relationships to a pinnacle level.
The Color of the Day is GLAZE. (It’s nearly clear, very light yellow.) To bring out the supple atmosphere of the day, wear something shiny in the color glaze.
Even though we now have Venus, Chiron and Neptune in the soft sign, Pisces, we’re going to feel a bit of edge in the atmosphere today. A Mars/Jupiter angle will cause stiff, stubborn behavior that will set the stage for frustrations. We may feel as though we have to make too many compromises to complete a project. The Sun and Uranus are both in Aries, urging us forward at as quick a pace as we can maintain. So, when we run into obstacles, we may not want to take the time to figure out the best way around, but instead, will plow through, possibly causing some damage along the way.
The Word of the Day is DELIBERATE. Think things through before acting today.
The Color of the Day is GREAT BARRIER REEF BLUE. (It’s light blue with very little green.) Navigate the day best by softening our appeal to many people by wearing something in the color of the Great Barrier Reef’s waters.
People will want to shine today! Mars, the planet that controls our use of energy and how we spend our time, is at a beautiful angle to Pluto the planet that throws things out that are not working in our lives and transforms our situations to fit us. Not only that, but the Moon in Leo will add to our strength and endurance, and direct us into situations through which we are best able to excel. So, today will be a great day for figuring out optimal use of our energies, and then going after the things that will make us feel the vigor of life!
The Word of the Day is STURDY. We can keep our energetic fire burning, getting things done, while pushing obstructions aside today.
The Color of the Day is DOVE GRAY. (It’s medium gray.) Let’s keep ourselves strong and happy today wearing the color dove gray.
Saturn will be turning retrograde today until late August. During the next few months we will be reviewing the progress we have attained and the lessons we’ve learned since Saturn last began its direct motion eight months ago. We will look back upon the responsibilities that we have taken on, and decide whether it would be beneficial for us to keep them, let them go, or to revise them. (Maybe we could do more with our lives; maybe we are doing too much). The next five months will be a time to evaluate. The Moon in the enduring sign, Leo will be void-of course for four hours before entering the more precise sign, Virgo.
The Word of the Day is ACCOUNTABILITY. Now that Saturn is retrograde we can celebrate the changes we’ve made to our work and progress we’ve made with our responsibilities.
The Color of the Day is CEDAR. (It’s medium brown tinged slightly with red.) Welcome Saturn’s retrograde motion by wearing something in the sturdy, steadfast color, cedar today.
Mercury is slowing to a stop, and will go retrograde on Sunday. We want to get as many things done today and tomorrow as we can. Important communications should be sent and contracts signed so that when Mercury turns retrograde we can review instead of trying to force ourselves to create new ideas. This will be a good day to take care of these things because the Moon will be in the detail-oriented sign, Virgo. The Sun is in opposition to Jupiter today. It will be a day during which we feel energized and optimistic about the results of our actions. We should take care not to become overly exuberant and overstep our bounds.
The Word of the Day is SCRUTINIZE. It’ll be a good day to look over details with a critical eye.
The Color of the Day is JADE. (It’s a medium green offed by a bit of blue.) Wearing something in the color jade will help us work with more efficiency today.
Retrograde Venus is going to be at a 90 degree square to Retrograde Saturn today. This will be a day when we want to look at relationships and decide if they’re on solid enough ground and meaningful enough for us to have to work at keeping them in our lives. This will definitely refer to romantic relationships, but also relationships that we’ve developed over time, like a healthy or unhealthy kind of food, or something we use, like a coffee brewer, or a car. We might want to pay particular attention to our finances today, and make sure we’re spending our money wisely.
The Word of the Day is CARE. Pay special attention to the things and people we love today. A little thoughtfulness can go a long way.
The Color of the Day is PORCELAIN. (It’s white.) Hold others to our hearts with strength and gentleness today wearing the color of fine porcelain.
Mercury will be retrograde from today until May 3. This time can be extremely helpful in propelling our lives forward after its effect has passed. Mercury rules our thoughts. While it is retrograde, we are afforded the opportunity to assimilate recently received pieces of information into their rightful places in our minds. It can be compared to a time of cleaning out a file. We go through and throw out the documents that we really don’t need to keep, and then place the things we need in the correct spot. From this, we can make inferences and draw conclusions that will guide us onward.
The Word of the Day is IDLE. As Mercury turns retrograde, communications go awry. If we cease pressing forward, we can find that we are less frustrated and more mindful of the present.
The Color of the Day is PEACH. (It’s light orange.) To counteract the confusing communications of the day, wear the color peach and feel uplifted!
The Venus/Saturn square is finally beginning to separate. This has been giving us opportunities to focus on the things we care about in life. The Moon will be in Libra today, on its way to tomorrow’s Full Moon. But, before it gets there, it will be passing by Jupiter. This is going to make us feel as though we are more trusting than usual. We’ll want to put our faith in the great outcomes of social engagements and dealings with people of authority. For a couple of hours we will be urged to create more harmony in our lives. We’ll be putting finishing touches on projects today.
The Word of the Day is SUPPORT. By maintaining balance while completing what is expected of us today we uplift the spirits of others.
The Color of the Day is GOLDEN BROWN. Hefting the weight of other people’s problems comes easier today if we wear golden brown.
FULL MOON Tuesday! The Sun and Moon oppose each other in Aries and Libra today. If you’ve never noticed the significance of a Full Moon before, try and take note of this one, just to observe the effects. Prior to the Full Moon people scramble to get things done, and afterwards, still in that hastened mode, they have to come down off that rush. They become irritable, drive recklessly, and subconsciously beat themselves up for having not met whatever goals they might have set during the prior couple of weeks. Fortunately, with the Full Moon’s signs of impulse and harmony, this day should have some humorous moments!
The Word of the Day is RUSH. High energy meets companionship in what can turn into a whirlwind day.
The Color of the Day is TULIP. (It’s dark reddish orange.) Keep the high energy levels of the day up today in celebration of the Full Moon, wearing the color tulip!
Astrologers regard the asteroid, Chiron in such high esteem that many believe it to be the ruler of the sign Virgo. It is thought to cause deep wounding and healing. Today and for another week, it is conjunct Venus. So, a bit of melancholy may occur if we reminisce or dwell on lost relationships, past wounds, or things we lack. The Moon in Scorpio will intensify our feelings, and urge us to figure out the reasons that we might feel that way. Venus will also be making an angle to Saturn that makes us pay attention to someone or something we love. We’ll feel good being conscientious.
The Word of the Day is HEAL. Recognizing what areas in our lives need to regain health is an imperative force of the day.
The Color of the Day is AMETHYST. (It’s a purple that’s a bit darker than lavender.) If we wear the color amethyst today, we may stave off anything that might seek to debilitate our egos.
As the Sun conjuncts Uranus today, we experience the drive to break free of restrictions. It happens only about one day per year, but this week we have had other similar aspects leading up to this one, and find that we just don’t want to fit into anyone else’s ideas of how we should live our lives. Take action to encourage and direct our own paths! The Moon in Scorpio will enjoy uncovering our new methods. Mars is also at angle to the Sun/Uranus conjunction while it passes by the nebula, Capulus, causing us to focus our actions clearly and decisively, possibly resulting in impassive encounters.
The Word of the Day is POSSESS. With today’s aspects, people want to take charge of their surroundings and be in control of their lives’ paths.
The Color of the Day is BORON. (It’s silvery gray.) Embrace the power of today’s astrological angles by wearing something in the color of boron to bring luck and individual direction.
It’s going to be an energetic day! Mars will be making an unusual angle to Neptune today. Since Mars rules the action we take and Neptune guides our subconscious minds, we may be able to dream up some fantastic thing to do that will propel our lives forward. The Moon will be in the stimulating sign Sagittarius throughout the day. Sagittarius likes to see changes occur because it can get people more of what they want. During the two days that the Moon travels through this sign each month people become motivated, and tend to go further out on a limb than they normally would. Confidence is inspiring!
The Word of the Day is SPONTANEITY. The things people do will be interesting and humorous to watch today, as we are stimulated to action!
The Color of the Day is RUBY. (It’s a gleaming red enriched by a touch of blue.) Wearing something with the color ruby in it will give us added buoyancy today.
Venus does a wonderful thing for us today! It will begin moving in its forward motion again, no longer retrograde). Now, those of us who want to begin relationships can really have a shot at success. Our own material security should improve from the state that it has been in over the past month and feelings of well being will be indulging us again. But, we might feel a little bit squirmy today while the Sun and Mars make an angle to each other that may make us feel as though we are fastened into place. We’ll want to get into a more comfortable position. And, with the Moon still in the fire sign, Sagittarius, we’ll make that effort.
The Word of the Day is TWINKLE. As Venus turns direct today we take pleasure in beauty and entertainment.
The Color of the Day is CARNATION PINK. (It’s flowery pink!) Put a sparkle in your eye today by wearing carnation pink.
The Sun, Moon, Venus, Mars, Chiron, Saturn and Uranus are all involved with each other today, which could result in a bit of confusion in our direction as the day rolls along. With Venus having just gone direct, its angle to the Sun will cause things to be not be quite what they seem with our relationships. But whatever grievance we perceive can enlighten us to the fact that we have to create our own individual paths. Even when deeply involved with someone, we each remain singular; distinct entities. Compromise is a loving key to solid relationships, but there are times when we need to be true to ourselves to create peace of mind.
The Word of the Day is DISTINCTION. Make all of our moves within our own characteristics today, with ability, self-assurance, and care.
The Color of the Day is POLAR BEAR WHITE. (It’s off-white) Blend easily into the background while casting an important shadow today, wearing polar bear white.
The Sun will be busy today, making angles to Saturn, Neptune, Venus and Mars. Things will happen that will enrich our spirits, even though the ongoing angle to Mars may make us feel as though we are fastened into place. If there’s a bit of adventure attached to whatever event is going to occur, we may find ourselves living our fantasies! The Saturn trine will give us a greater foundation for our creative projects, as will the Moon’s transit through the responsible sign, Capricorn. We’ll feel our feet on the ground and our heads in the clouds!
The Word of the Day is ACCEDE. Allow our thoughts to flow freely with the confidence that we’re enriching our spirits.
The Color of the Day is PHYLLO. (It’s translucent pale yellow.) To best attract today’s inspiring energy, wear something in the color of the lightly buttered phyllo dough today.
Recently the Moon has not been void-of-course for long periods of time, and with Venus now direct, we feel as though we want to get our lives moving ahead. But, Mercury is still retrograde until May 3. This causes us to reminisce about our thoughts and plans, and to evaluate their validity and purpose in our lives. So, even though we might want to take on a new project or make a new promise during this time, it may not work out while our subconscious is preoccupied. We need Mercury to go retrograde from time to time because in order to move forward we need to be able to build upon the structure of the past.
The Word of the Day is CONSIDER. With Mercury’s retrograde motion guiding the day, we look backward to see what we need to fix, in order to move onward.
The Color of the Day is BABY BLUE. (It’s light blue.) Our expectations for the future grow, if we wear something in the color baby blue today.
The Sun will be entering the sign Taurus today! This is an earth sign that makes us feel more practical about the things we relate to. Love of comfort and appreciation of material things will replace the energy that Aries gave us that made us want to push ahead. While the Sun is in Taurus, over the next month, we will think more about money and creating security than we usually do. We’ll try to establish relationships with things and people that will make us feel good. We like things done the very best way possible while Taurus is a prominent influence in our lives.
The Word of the Day is INDULGENCE. We all could use a bit of time to take pleasure in the things we like to do for ourselves. (We can’t give to others if we don’t refill our own resources every once in a while.)
The Color of the Day is VERDIGRIS. (It’s a pastel green with a dab of blue.) Attract some stress-free time into our lives today by wearing verdigris.
Two astrological events are going to happen today that are fairly important. The first is that retrograde Mercury has backed into the sign Aries, where it will stay until May 16. We’re going to get a renewed spark of mental energy and people will act more on impulse than usual over the next month. The other is that Pluto will be retrograde until the end of September. This will be a background effect that we won’t notice too much. When Pluto is direct we reconstruct things, so with it being retrograde, we’ll be scrutinizing transformations we’ve made over the last 6 months.
The Word of the Day is JUDGE. Assess the changes we want to make with thought and consideration.
The Color of the Day is BLACK STAR SAPPHIRE. (It’s black with white glint.) Wear the color of the black star sapphire today to ready ourselves for changes to come.
One more important astrological event is going to happen this week. That is that Mars will be entering the sign Gemini today, where it will stay until June 4. (It takes Mars 2 years to traverse the zodiac). During this period of time we should be wary of sharp-tongued manipulative people. On the other hand, we will have increased abilities to solve mechanical challenges, puzzles, and to find our way through mazes (both metaphorically and literally!) After Mars enters Gemini, it will be passing by a star that will give us insights into the motivations and desires of others. So, we’ll be able to figure out what people want more easily today.
The Word of the Day is MODERATION. Keep a discreet distance today from anything that isn’t positive.
The Color of the Day is IVORY. (It’s off-white.) We can attract some today’s intuitiveness, if we were to wear, to carry, or to otherwise associate ourselves with the color ivory.
Retrograde Mercury is going to be at an angle to Neptune today that is going to cause a bit of confusion. We’ll have choices to make, but all of the facts concerning them won’t be clear, so we may be unsure of which one to pick. We’re probably going to choose instinctively because the Moon in Pisces will pass by Neptune today, activating that angle and directing us to utilize a higher level of consciousness to solve challenges. With the Sun now in Taurus, we’ll be less apt to change our minds once a decision has been made. It will be a day to follow instincts!
The Word of the Day is SUBLIMINAL. The Moon directs us to focus on intuition today.
The Color of the Day is IRIDESCENT BLUE. (It’s blue more often than not, but as light hits it, it might appear to be another color entirely.) The uplifting of spirits will create the atmosphere today. To feel satisfied with the outcome of endeavors, we should find this color or some other shimmering blue to wear!
People want to spend time coddling their own thoughts and ideas today. Conversations may be strained because the other people may have something entirely different on their minds, and not be too interested in what we have to talk about. This is because Mercury, the planet that rules our communications is not seeing eye-to-eye with Venus, the planet that focuses on whatever it takes to make us feel good. Another of today’s influential aspects is that Mercury will trine Saturn, which will make caring for responsibilities easier. We’ll be better able to think up ways to get things done that will produce the very best outcomes.
The Word of the Day is TIDE. As with the ocean today, emotions rise and fall.
The Color of the Day is MAGNOLIA. (It’s pale pink.) Hold loosely to the beauty of the day, wearing the color of the delicate magnolia flower.
Mars is a prominent guiding force today while it passes by a star of Andromeda. The planet of male energy comes together with the star of masculinity provoking aggression, desire, and heightened physical strength. We’ll feel energized and prepared to move ahead with getting things done. The Moon in Aries will also give us the motivation to engage our power to overcome doldrums. It would be nice to start new things, but our New Moon doesn’t happen for another couple of days, and Mercury is still retrograde. We could benefit by recalling and drawing upon the lessons we learned from past experiences before taking action.
The Word of the Day is CONNECT. Since we’ll be invigorated with physical energy, it will be rewarding to share our experiences with someone else.
The Color of the Day is AMERICAN ROSE. (It’s a red off-toned with a dab of blue.) We could draw energy to ourselves today by wearing an article of clothing, a piece of jewelry, or an accessory that has the color of the American rose in it to heighten our power and vigor!
Expect a fairly adventurous day as the Moon passes by Uranus and Mercury on its way to tomorrow’s New Moon. (Look for Mercury in the morning as the closest bright object next to the Moon in the east. With the Moon being such a sliver, this is probably the only time today or tomorrow that we’re going to be able to see it.) The Moon’s conjunction to any planet stimulates its force. Today we should enjoy our imaginations and take note of ideas that might pop into our heads, because they may be highly useful after Mercury goes direct on May 3.
The Word of the Day is SCHEME. Dream up and plan exciting things to do today!
The Color of the Day is ORIOLE. (It’s rich orange.) Wear the color of the bird, Baltimore Oriole today to keep our thoughts strong and exhilarating!
A fresh new month is upon us! The Moon and Sun, both in Taurus will conjunct, creating a New Moon, filled with inspirations to color our days! Taurus stabilizes our lives, and our urge to move forward slows, so that we can take time to appreciate our surroundings and the things that we have. There won’t be any other new major astrological occurrences to tug our directions, except that Venus will be passing by a star that will be indulging our minds with philosophy and fantasy. So, we should feel renewed with dreams of what will happen in our futures.
The Word of the Day is ROOT. Send calm structure into today’s atmosphere with the effects of the New Moon, so that we can energize ourselves with the beauty of life.
The Color of the Day is SPROUTLET. (It’s spring green.) Burst forth with the vim of newfound, fresh energy, wearing the light green color sproutlet!
We have a challenging aspect today between Mars and Pluto, which could easily make our day to be eventful! This could get us into trouble if we are impulsive or expose ourselves to unnecessary hazards. Fortunately, with the Sun and Moon still in the grounded sign, Taurus, we should be able to think in a practical manner, before doing anything that will endanger us. Taurus likes pleasurable activities, and wouldn’t dream of jumping into detrimental situations. The Sun will be passing by two stars today, which will reign in our focus. At that point we will be able to take command by showing our wisdom and intellect.
The Word of the Day is CENTER. Find balance today to rise above anything that may attempt to distract our stability.
The Color of the Day is SILHOUETTE. (It’s very dark gray.) Wear the neutral color silhouette today to keep our focal point.
Venus has re-entered the sign Aries, after it’s retrograde period. It is sort of a discordant placement because Venus likes to indulge us in leisurely behavior, and Aries likes to get us moving. The way to handle the next month best is to utilize our energies by beautifying our environment, finding ways to make our lives more comfortable, and by going after the things we want. The Moon will be traveling through the sign Gemini, which is the most talkative sign. There will be many opportunities for meaningful conversation today. We listen to people who are important to us, because they will want to have their say as much as we want ours.
The Word of the Day is MOMENTARY. Thoughts and conversations come and go quickly, sprinkling our day with instants of fun and inspiration!
The Color of the Day is DOLPHIN. (It’s light grayed blue.) Leap into playful action wearing the color of dolphins today.
Jupiter and Saturn have been making an angle to each other that should be help us considerably. This is going to give us ideas on how to handle the things we need to do most efficiently. The things we learn will be more meaningful. This will push our lives forward with less effort and will last over the next couple of weeks. We need to remember not to make any big purchases until after May 3, when Mercury ends its retrograde period, because signing something may well be a show of good intentions, but the content of the agreement will be flawed in some way, and glitches will have to be worked out for the original purpose to be filled.
The Word of the Day is PATIENCE. As much as we may not want to, we should wait to make any important moves today.
The Color of the Day is MESQUITE. (It’s grayish brown.) Wear the color of the sturdy desert-dweller today for stamina and tolerance.
Saturn opposes the asteroid Chiron today. When this occurs people feel as though their daily responsibilities are veering them off their own paths to health and happiness. They get stressed out. To avoid being frazzled over the coming week, we should make sure to take some time for ourselves, even if it’s only a few minutes each day. We need the time to recharge our strength and to gather our thoughts. We won’t be able to be effective if we don’t. Today the Moon in Cancer will make it an easy day to enjoy the comforts of home and to take care of mundane things.
The Word of the Day is RESTORE. Take a break today.
The Color of the Day is YELLOW CALA LILY. (It’s a delicate pale yellow.) Wear the color of the graceful yellow Cala lily as a much-needed gift to ourselves.
