Saturn now at 09 degrees of Capricorn is likely creating tests, challenges, delays, and losses for any planets and points in your horoscope around 09 degrees of Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Libra, and Capricorn.
Uranus, the planet of sudden shifts and breakthroughs, at 29 degrees Aries may be creating unexpected changes and even shocks for those born around the twentieth of January, April, July, September, October, and November and for anyone with points or planets around 29 degrees of the same signs.
Neptune at 15 degrees Pisces is likely creating challenging and confusing situations for Gemini, Leo, Virgo, Libra, and Sagittarius born around the fourth of May, August, September, October, and December and for anyone with points or planets around 15 degrees of these signs.
And Pluto, the planet of transformation and new beginnings, at 21 degrees Capricorn is likely producing significant changes for Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Libra, and Capricorn born around the twelfth of January, April, June, July, August, and October, and for anyone with planets or points around 21 degrees of the same signs.
The other astrological factors relevant for the first four days of this week are listed below.
~ Monday, April 30
08:13 AM Moon in Leo Scorpio aligns with Neptune in Pisces to bring opportunities for inspiration, healing, prayer, spirituality, mysticism, meditation, psychic phenomena, daydreaming, imagination, creativity, music, art, and other creative endeavors.
02:17 PM Sun in Taurus square Node in Leo has been in effect the past few days. This aspect favors networking and social interactions based on the pursuit of joint interests. People with this aspect in their horoscope are sociable and inclined to give and receive stimulating ideas on an ongoing basis.
03:11 PM Moon in Scorpio conjuncts Jupiter in Scorpio. This lovely aspect occurs once a month and increases the possibility of kindness, benevolence, positive feelings, and uplifting emotional support with any interpersonal situation or social event.
~ Tuesday, May 01
09:50 AM Moon in Scorpio 150 Uranus in Aries brings nervousness, anxiety, upsets, emotional tensions, strained nerves, craving sensations, restlessness, excitability, and emotionally charged situations.
09:50 AM Moon in Scorpio becomes Void until 11:19 AM when it enters the next sign, Sagittarius, where it remains until late Thursday morning when it enters the next sign, Capricorn.
With Moon in the fire-sign Sagittarius and Sun in the earth-sign Taurus, we have a Sun–Moon combination with distinctly different needs and motivations.
Taurus prefers the security of the known. It wants to maintain the status quo while Sagittarius longs for the untried and unknown. Taurus is not inclined to gamble while Sagittarius thrives on taking a chance.
Taurus is more practical and security oriented. It seeks comforts, ease, and the status quo. It does not like to budge much. Sagittarius is more restless and adaptable. Its high hopes and far-reaching wishes bring a need to explore new ideas and places. Sagittarius feels stifled when life becomes too mundane and predictable.
Taurus appreciates the enthusiasm and energy of Sagittarius, but may also feel they are too unreliable, and their ideas and ideals are too far-fetched or impractical. Sagittarius is attracted to the steadiness and practicality of Taurus but may feel they lack the imagination, vision, and spirit of open-exploration which Sagittarius thrives on.
But in the end, the down-to-earth practicality of Taurus can temper and stabilize the exuberance and grand plans of Sagittarius. And the need for Sagittarius to grow and explore far and wide can motivate Taurus to move beyond their set habits and lifestyle to explore new ideas and places.
12:44 PM Moon in Sagittarius aligned with Chiron in Aries brings opportunities for healing and harmony.
10:24 PM Venus in Gemini 150 Saturn in Capricorn is more significant than the other aspects listed on these pages. In effect this past week, this aspect is related to problems and hardships with love and money which means that anyone who started a new business, got married, or met someone new this past week will likely face challenges.
Venus represents our primary need to be loved and appreciated. It is also related to values, money, joy, harmony, and females. Saturn negatively aspected brings restrictions, negation, denial, delays, pain, grief, and losses.
As a result, people with a challenging Venus-Saturn aspect in their horoscope find that love and money do not come as easily as those with favorable aspects to their Venus. They are more likely to experience financial losses and worries. They want to be loved and appreciated, but often “hang in there” with relationships which are arduous and require many sacrifices on their part.
~ Wednesday, May 02
05:20 AM Moon in Sagittarius opposite Venus in Gemini fosters cooperation, cheerfulness, affections, pleasantries, gracefulness, emotional sharing, and artistic expression, especially involving females.

10:48 AM Moon in Sagittarius 150 Sun in Taurus brings into focus the description on Tuesday about the differences between Taurus and Sagittarius.
05:58 PM Moon in Sagittarius aligned with Mercury in Aries brings opportunities for communication, discussions, writing, and sales. Being in the fire signs, Aries and Sagittarius, this aspect also brings opportunities for sales, marketing, and promotion.
06:09 PM Moon in Sagittarius square Neptune in Pisces increases the possibilities for haziness and emotional confusion as well as highly refined artistic and spiritual feelings and aspirations. This period is better for daydreaming, imagination, creativity, prayer, and meditation than for logical discussions and clear-cut decisions.
~ Thursday, May 03
08:49 PM Moon in Sagittarius trine Uranus in Aries enhances instincts, attentiveness, willfulness, intuition, and forward-looking aspirations. With Aries and Sagittarius involved, there are special opportunities for marketing, advertising, and promotion.
08:49 PM Moon in Sagittarius goes Void until 10:05 PM when it enters the next sign, Capricorn, where it remains until Sunday morning when it enters the next sign, Aquarius.
11:48 PM Moon in Capricorn square Chiron in Aries brings opportunities for healing and harmony between people.
How to Benefit from This Information
The aspects described in these newsletters are not intended to tell you what is going to happen in your life at the times given. Instead, they are guidelines for the possibilities around the times given so you can more wisely plan for and participate in a meeting, discussion, part, trip, or event, for example.
The basic premise with right timing is that it helps to have the "stars" on your side. Starting a marriage, trip, surgery, business, real estate deal, or a major purchase, for example, at an inopportune time reduces the chances of success no matter how good your intentions and how hard you try. The better the timing, the greater your chances of success. Even an hour can make a significant difference in important decisions and events, whether you know it or not.
The most important factor with right timing is what’s occurring in your horoscope. If negative aspects now dominate your horoscope, your chances of success with right timing are diminished no matter how good the aspects are in the sky as described in these newsletters. Obviously, I cannot cover what is occurring in your horoscope, but if you apply the information in these newsletters with common sense, you have an advantage timing your decisions and activities.
The Moon (lunar) aspects listed in these newsletters are in effect for hours before and until the times (Eastern Time) given. The non-lunar aspects listed are more important and should be given greater consideration for right timing because they are typically in effect for about a week before the times given (Eastern Time). Any child born and any business, project, decision, and relationship, for example, started around the date given will have the qualities of that aspect.
With Void periods, what you start or implement is less likely to turn out the way you planned or expected. Sometimes it’s better to do things with no purpose in mind versus trying to be doing something special and productive.

We will schedule a personal and private consultation so can know more about your future and better understand any issues and conflicts in your life as well as your relationships, career, education, finances, children, parents, travel, health, location, retirement, and karma.
