WE ENTER, on Sunday April 4th, the Last Quarter phase of the Moon. This coming week, leading up to next Sunday's New Moon, is a time for reflection, release, and acceptance. We are letting go of what has been, to clear the way for what may be. It is also the transition phase between the Pisces lunar cycle that is ending and the Aries lunar cycle that will soon begin.
At this time, we benefit from being in a place of surrender and trust, with a willingness to let go of the need to control outcomes. It is also a time to sense with our hearts instead of trying to know with our minds. We may find it easiest to be in tune with those Piscean directives during the hours that the Moon makes its monthly transit through the twelfth sign, from 1:30 p.m. PDT on Wednesday, through 11:11 p.m. PDT on Friday.
ONE OF THE MAIN EVENTS on this week's planetary agenda, a Mars-Neptune square, advances similar themes of trust and faith. Although the aspect doesn't perfect until Friday, we will be feeling this influence throughout the week.
For the most part, Mars and Neptune are uncomfortable dance partners...
