This week may not be the most gentle in recent memory, there is a lot of stuff coming due. We’re just in the shadow of rare, powerful configurations (with more to come this year) and things can get quite complicated with the planets very quickly. Complicated astrology coincides with complicated life issues working out, and no small amount of emotional agitation going on.
While Saturn is aspecting Uranus this week adding to a sense of planetary tension and hopefully enlightened change; Saturn is also forming an aspect to Neptune which may bring out more of the pathological and despairing side of human nature.
Meanwhile Mars is also connecting to Pluto and Saturn this week, bringing out various forms of intensity, obsession and frustrations. All in all, this is a perfect week for life developments to occur. Of course, I can’t say that for sure, but conditions are certainly right for it. No doubt I’ve done a good job of scaring readers here about this week; not that that was intentional but I want to underscore the potential for things to get hot and bring about important events.
Fear, denial, or avoidance won’t help; but a little boldness may go a long way this week to push a lot of good things into manifestation. Things look pretty hairy actually the weekend of April 30 through May 3, at least on an internal level. Hopefully though a more positive manifestation of the malefics will prevail and pull things out of the unresolved background into the crystal clear foreground. Don’t worry about not knowing what’s important now, it will be staring you in the face.
Mon, April 26
Today there may be a crystal clear sense of ideas, values, and what is important in life. Various points of view may be put into sharp relief and a palpable sense of tension may be present. If people stay together, keep their cool; they may find themselves passing through an important juncture in life successfully onto a progressively better life. (Saturn opposite Uranus)
Tues, April 27
Action, initiative, and motivation will kick itself into overdrive; it is a good opportunity to get things done and to break past barriers of output. Be careful of mechanical or physical breakdown through use and abuse. Be careful going places that could threaten harm. (Mars biquintile Pluto)
Wed, April 28
Optimism and confidence may shoot up inappropriately causing a misjudgment of affairs. Be careful of recklessness, arrogance, and neglect of details. People may talk and act big, but will they be the same tomorrow? (Sun and Mercury aspecting Jupiter)
Thurs, April 29
Emotions and relationships will be strongly stimulated; you may feel yourself feeling very strongly (either way) about someone or something. However perspective will suffer as there will be too much obsessive and compulsive energies at work. What you feel may be exaggerated but not exactly real. (Venus quincunx Pluto, quintile Jupiter)
Friday, April 30
Issues and ideas may be blurry and overly biased, be very circumspect and clear as to what you conclude or act upon today. Vitality and physical resistance to disease may be down; the potential to act deceitfully (lies, deceptions, self or otherwise) will be enhanced. (Sun quintile Neptune)
Sat, May 1
No peaking influences
Sun, May 2
Could be a day of uncertain influences and difficult emotions, some of the basest self-deceits may be laid bare. However courage to rebuild the self, to act more honorably, and with integrity can be found especially if the ego is laid to rest (which it may right now). (Saturn quincunx Neptune)
Mon, May 3
Today and tomorrow intense forces may be coming into alignment in our lives, pushing us in ways we might not prefer to be but we need to be nonetheless. This may not be a day of relaxation, but focus and hard work. Relationships may need some work to. (Sun and Mars in hard aspect to Saturn, Venus tridecile Saturn, Mercury trine Pluto)
