Astrology for 4/23/2019

4/23/2019 Tuesday by Wangmo & Jampal

Theme: Optimism

There is both optimism and idealism today, coupled with the spirit of generosity and good fortune. This is helpful energy in dealing with the disruptions and challenges which continue. There is a continuing conflict between self-assertion and nurturing and this may play out as someone trying to dominate someone else. Again, a spiritual pathway offers solution to this conflict. Keep looking up…that’s the secret of life.~Snoopy, The Peanuts.

Theme: Seeking release

Today Uranus and the Sun are at the same degree in the heavens. This has a very powerful effect that can manifest in a number of ways: seeking release from constraints, surprising actions from yourself or others, and disruptions to the earth’s equilibrium. Also, today there is a beneficial nurturing energy which is challenged by two other planets. Spiritual study can assist with the flow of this energy. No matter what path you’re following, compassion is the only way to realization.~ Jetsunma Ahkon Norbu Lhamo

Astrology for 4/21/2019

4/21/2019 Sunday by Jampal & Wangmo

Theme: Self-expression

With the planet of relationship, Venus, moving into the ‘me first’ sign of Aries there is a wish not to be tied down, and to be direct in connecting with others. There is an opportunity for the next few days to work on healing relationships and communication. With the Moon in Sagittarius there is an easy camaraderie in relating to others yet a bluntness also. This is a time to enjoy the natural surrounds and study big meaningful topics. Believe the terrain, not the map.~Brian Kernighan

Astrology for 4/20/2019

4/20/2019 Saturday by Wangmo & Jampal

Theme: Resistance to change

With the Sun entering the sign of Taurus (Happy Birthday Taureans!) closing in on the planet of disruption and change, Uranus, there is likely to be a lot of resistance to structural change. Effort is required to move past this resistance. The tight unity of Pluto, Saturn and the south node in the sign of Capricorn indicates that the results of unbridled materialism and ambition are now impacting our world. We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.~Chief Seattle

Astrology for 4/19/2019

4/19/2019 Friday by Jampal & Wangmo

Theme: Holding on, or Letting Go

Is this a peak time to grasp on to what you own and value? Or are you open to new insights and letting go? A Tibetan saying illustrates this point: “When you own one Yak, you have one Yak worth of problems. When you own two Yaks, you have two Yaks worth of problems.” With the full Moon today, energies are high, yet conflicts between professional life and personal life are common. With the Moon in the sign of Scorpio, emotions run deeply but not easily. Be gentle with your self and others, especially for the next few days. My religion is kindness.~His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.

Astrology for 4/18/2019

4/18/2019 Thursday by Wangmo & Jampal

Theme: Exercising diplomacy and learning flexibility

Today, with the Moon in Libra close to the asteroid Pallas-Athena, there is an opportunity for employing diplomacy in the way you emotionally relate to others. People are more forceful with how they communicate so develop skills in dealing with willfulness (without wisdom) in others. Anything that helps develop your flexibility prepares you for any sudden changes that will occur. Nobody can make you feel inferior without your permission.~Eleanor Roosevelt

Astrology for 4/17/2019

4/17/2019 Wednesday by Jampal & Wangmo

Theme: Off to the races!

With the planet of thought and communication, Mercury, entering the fiery, action sign, Aries, a new cycle begins. For a few weeks, the pace of life increases, and imagination and inspiration are strong. “Look before you leap”, is something to remember now. Today, the Moon’s placement favors talking about emotional issues with others. Sudden changes and disruptions continue for a week. No matter how hard the past is, you can always begin again.~Buddha 

Astrology for 4/16/2019

4/16/2019 Tuesday by Wangmo & Jampal

Theme: Unreliable intuition!

Today is not the day to trust intuition. Intuition might be strong but it is mixed in heavily with one’s own emotional complexes! This can lead to misunderstandings today. There is a friendly atmosphere today but beware of socially over-extending yourself and making your plans too big. Discipline is at a low point for the next few days. Mind-altering substances are particularly harmful at this time. ‘”But it’s no use now”, thought poor Alice “to pretend to be two people!! Why, there’s hardly enough of me left to make one respectable person!”‘~Alice in Wonderland

Astrology for 4/15/2019

Theme: Preparing the ground

With the Moon moving in the the sign of Virgo it’s time for elbow grease in cleaning the difficult-to-get-to places and sprucing up your environment generally. Planting and pruning are on the cards. With the Sun moving ever closer to Uranus over the next week it’s time to prepare your mind in ways that create suppleness and flexibility when the inevitable, but unexpected, changes come. You know you’re really in trouble when you’ve had both the wool pulled over your eyes AND the rug pulled out from under your feet!~Linda Pointdexter

Today the Moon is Void of Course from 9.40 pm EDST USA the day before until 6.15 am. If you’re in another time-zone check what that means for you time-wise. It’s best to avoid making major decisions or signing contracts during this time.
