Thursday Apr 30 As Taurus Sun-sign Yogi Berra — the great, Hall of Fame catcher for the NY Yankees — once famously said “It’s Déjà vu All over Again...” In this case, the reference is to today’s crisis-oriented First Quarter Sun-Moon Phase (activating 11 degrees of Taurus and Leo at 1:39pm) on the last day of April manifesting as the mirror reflection of the First Quarter Sun-Moon Phase in Aries and Cancer that launched this very challenging fourth month of 2020 on April Fools’ Day. It is unusual to precisely begin and end a calendar month with the same solar-lunar phase. It could happen within a day or two, but an exact link-up is meaningful since we human souls are dealing right now with the scary coronavirus pandemic. As is shared often in this Cosmic Kalendar, solar-lunar quarter moon cycles are big sources of tension and stress — in small, medium or large doses depending on your individual life-path, mental attitudes, emotional nature and physical-material state of being. Do your best to step out of the shadows of fear, worry and anxiety that could be amplified by a frictional, 45-degree aspect between Mercury and Neptune (1:36am) along with lunar squares to Mercury (3:48am) and Uranus (6:22am) in Taurus. Helping you summon extra courage to deal with burdens you never expected would happen this year are comforting Ceres in Pisces making a trine to the Mean Lunar North Node in Cancer (12:15am), the Moon trine healing-maestro Chiron in fire signs (7:21am) and the mind-enlightening, annual union between Mercury and Uranus at 7 degrees of Taurus (8:42pm). Fortunately, the Mercury-Uranus merger is the last main heavenly alignment of the month and has a great capacity to alter your consciousness as May begins via pursuing spiritually-uplifting activities, and enhancing your approach to dealing with money-matters, creative artistic expression, computer and online research, and beloved crafts or hobbies.
