Full Moon with Peace in the Balance — April 13-20 2022  


This week, and important week for historical resolutions, and prior to the full Moon in Libra, the Moon in Virgo reaches the opposition aspect to Neptune and Jupiter in Pisces, allowing for a greater understanding of intransigent issues. A modification of psychological displacement opens us to greater possibilities and the resolution of unconscious attitudes.  A Yod formation on Thursday the 14th, including the Sun, Saturn and the Moon, reaps positive results. Mars ingress to Pisces follows the Yod, as work on what has been spoiled continues, with the stellium in Pisces on Friday, as the Moon in Libra makes a Yod formation with Mercury and Venus. The full Moon on Saturday is accompanied by the square aspect to Pluto, making it a fateful day, impacting major populations of the world. It could be pivotal in the resolution of power issues. The Moon ingress Scorpio on Sunday the 17th of April, and makes trine aspects to Mars, Venus and on Monday to Neptune and Jupiter in Pisces. The Moon is opposition aspect to Uranus and Mercury on Sunday, and a conjunction aspect with Ketu (south lunar node) on Monday, as we transform the present and let go of the past. The Moon in Sagittarius on Tuesday, makes a square aspect to Mars for disciplinary action, and a square aspect to Venus in Pisces for redemption, as the inner truth is applied in the trine aspect to Chiron in Aries, and the Sun ingress to Taurus late in the day.

Summary of Major Aspects of the Week

Wednesday April 13th — As Jupiter supersedes Neptune in the conjunction aspect, although remaining closely tied, social instincts having been through the wringer, are now encouraging a more universal understanding, as a broader range of personal/social identity has been forged. The Moon in practical Virgo makes a trine aspect to innovative Uranus in Taurus early today, as some radical ideas are found to be useful. At the same time, the Moon in a quincunx aspect to Chiron in Aries encourages a radical idealism, while semi-sextile to Uranus. The Sun in Aries is sextile aspect to Saturn in Aquarius, for another volatile aspect, as the dispositors Mars and Uranus interact, with Mars also disposed of by Uranus. The limitations implied by Saturn are provocative in nature, as implicit dangers force actions.

Thursday April 14th — The Moon in Virgo is quincunx aspect to the Sun in Aries and to Saturn in Aquarius for a Yod formation early today, afternoon hours in Ukraine. The Sun sextile aspect to Saturn could indicate a working agreement achieved. The Moon is also in an opposition aspect to Neptune/Jupiter conjunction in Pisces. The semi-sextile aspects between the Sun and Jupiter/Neptune and Saturn to Jupiter/Neptune are encouraging motivation to force a resolution to conflicts. The Moon in a trine aspect to Pluto a few hours later when the roots of conflicts are addressed. While a cessation may not be achieved, Mars ingress to Neptune later today, and a stellium in Pisces formed, indicating that aggression is diminished although the consequences are painful. The Moon ingress to Libra seeks to balance the issues we are facing.

Friday April 15th — The Moon in Libra is quincunx aspect to Mercury in Taurus, and also quincunx aspect to Venus in Pisces, as Mercury and Venus are drawn closer together in a sextile aspect, forming another Yod configuration. Concessions could now be achieved, as the aggressor has more limited options, leading to a turning point in the war.  The Moon in an opposition aspect to Chiron encourages soul-searching, while a quincunx aspect to Uranus indicates a threatening response.

Full Moon in Libra
April 16, 2022

Saturday April 16th — Prior to the full Moon, the Moon in Libra is in a trine aspect to Saturn in Aquarius, focusing on a just and peaceful resolution. The Moon then is quincunx aspect to Neptune/Jupiter in Pisces, as options are weighed, just hours before the partile full Moon aspect. The Moon is optimal in late evening hours in Europe and Middle East, while afternoon in the US times zones.  Pluto in Capricorn stands at the focal point, as traditions are honored. All preparations are made for an organized resolution, and seder celebration. Mercury approaches the conjunction aspect with Uranus in Taurus, as Jupiter continues to separate from the conjunction aspect with Neptune, cleansed and revitalized. Venus in Pisces is sextile aspect to the midpoint of the approaching conjunction of Mercury and Uranus, encouraging the Mercury/Uranus effect to begin a day early, in a pre-announcement of a pending agreement/settlement or engagement. The Moon makes the partile square aspect to Pluto in Capricorn late in the day, seeking adjustments to hardened positions. The Moon ingress to Scorpio follows, as emotional responses build in secret, empowered by a trine aspect to Mars in Pisces.

Sunday April 17th — The Moon in Scorpio makes a congenial trine aspect to Venus in Pisces, although also contentious opposition aspects to Mercury and Uranus in Taurus, although unable to effect change. A compromise agreement may be attractive, although reservations remain. A simultaneous quincunx aspect to Chiron in Aries signals a discomfort with the results of the agreement, which in the end may be dissolved, as the Sun in Aries approaches the square aspect to Pluto in Cap, and the conflict resumes after an interlude.

Monday April 18th — The Moon in Scorpio with a conjunction aspect to Ketu, and square aspect to Saturn in Aquarius, forcing us to unload some karmic baggage, such as attitudes that are no longer needed. Giving up unconscious convictions can free one to transform spiritually. The Moon makes trine aspects to Neptune and Jupiter, reaffirming the conjunction aspect in force. Venus in Pisces is sextile aspect to Uranus/Mercury in Taurus, as hidden personality aspects emerge. The Sun in Aries is now partile square aspect to Pluto in Cap. The individual Will could be in conflict with the controlling power. The Moon is sextile aspect to Pluto and quincunx aspect to the Sun, as collective responses favor controlling force, to restrain the radical dissent. The Moon ingress to Sagittarius overnight in Western hemisphere, for disquieting dreams as the square aspect to Mars in Pisces implies.

Tuesday April 19th — The Moon is in a square aspect to Mars in Pisces early in the day in Europe and Middle-East, indicating that agreements could be broken or aggressive infighting may take place. Venus in Pisces approaches the sextile aspect to Mercury in Taurus, seeking to reinstate agreements, while Saturn in Aquarius plies to the semi-sextile aspect with Neptune in Pisces as work to contain the outbreak of the pandemic intensifies.  The Moon is quincunx aspect to Mercury in Taurus, seeking a means to adjust the communication of the agreement, the actual wording may be made more acceptable. The Moon in an opposition aspect to Ceres in Gemini, and square aspect to Venus in Pisces, indicates that objections relating to climate or agriculture are accommodated in principle.

Reminder: While lunar aspects are in effect only for only a few hours, the aspect of the outer planets can last days and weeks. I post a reading for a day in advance in order to give a preview, and also because the aspects may be in effect a day earlier.
