Numerology/Astrology for 4/30/18
4/30/18 is the number 9. On your mark…get set…. GO! And the springtime is off. It is time to use the electrical energy hitting astrologically and to complete the old patterns that no longer serve and move into the next level of consciousness evolution. The number 9 is all about completing things and finding the completion in your soul that you are seeking. The number 9 is about feeling very grounded and comfortable with your intuitive knowingness and moving in a free flow that unifies your instinct and intuition with your cognitive knowing and discernment. It is a wonderful day when you can learn to merge with others in ways that previously did not seem possible.
The big event this month that all this intense energy has been building towards is that Uranus moves into Taurus on the 15th, and for 6 months will give us quick look at our world and how we interact with money and finances through 2027. When Uranus moves it tends to do it a bit dramatically. And when Uranus moved into Aries on March 11, 2011, it was dramatic to say the least. That was the day of the Japanese earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear incident. Also, Tunisia began the Arab Spring followed shortly by Egypt and the total destabilization of the Middle East and the repercussions are still being seen even now. While Uranus in Aries was like an electrical fire storm, Taurus is much more practical as an earth element. Taurus rules money, stocks, bonds, homes, real estate, and the US Treasure. I expect we will see even more technological changes taking over jobs in the years ahead. Our relationship to money is going to have to change. On Mother’s Day, Mercury lines up with Uranus. A perfect aspect for that lovely brunch with your Mother filled with pleasant conversation and lovely connection. Then Mercury moves into Taurus. Every Mother will love to be spoiled a bit that day. So really take some time to allow her to be indulged with food and gifts that show you that she deserves to be spoiled. Everything seems to be compounded to hit at the middle of the month, because Mars (the planet of energy, gumption, and drive) enters the shadow of its retrograde cycle that officially begins on June 26 and lasts through August 27. Mars does not go retrograde as much as most of the other planets so when it does you notice it. Don’t worry if you just don’t seem to have the energy that you wanted over the summer as Mars is also in the frozen winter sign of Aquarius. The detached and distant quality of Aquarius might make you feel a bit unmotivated. Do your best and just do one thing at a time. Beginnings and endings in Astrology always tend to show you what is to come, so know that the summer is going to be on the heavy side from many angles astrologically. Venus moves through nurturing and intuitive sign of Cancer starting on the 19th of May through mid-June, so a good time to visit family or improve your home and/or diet.
We are starting out this week with a lot going on. There are astrological storms brewing on the horizon and so this is that moment to prepare your ship and to try to pick a steady course through the storm. Today there are no major planetary connections or shifts, but the Moon is stirring up things quite a bit. Let’s just say you do not feel all calm. You can sense a building up towards something that will happen mid-month. The Moon is in Scorpio, aligning with Jupiter and harmonizing with Mars and Pluto. For the moment you feel a bit optimistic and comfortable because it seems like things are progressing. Emotions are up, and you will be navigating others feelings if not your own. It is a great time to focus on what you need and to come up with a plan or a strategy as you move forward. At the moment there is a clear focus and a strong inner drive helping you move forward.
Compassion is a call,
a demand of nature,
to relieve the unhappy
as hunger is a natural call for food.
