Todays Astrological Aspects by Melissa Abbott
My very first blog tlk radio show on todays Super Moon, a gardening Planting Guide, and Weekend overview
Have the idea that you will be turning disadvantages into advantages or lemons into lemonade today, as sometimes misunderstood, but powerful,must have respect for, Saturn, Trines, loving, beautiful abundant Venus at 12:02EST. That power lunch you have booked may take some hairpin turns. Think creatively to turn the tables in your own favor.
During your power lunch todays Virgo Moon Squares Jupiter at 12:52PM EST so you may feel you are going up against city hall at this time. Stay detailed and stick with what you know but maybe present it in a way that sounds better. So if you were trying to tell the boss that you aren’t going to make the quarter, show a detailed spreadsheet, of how the whole company isn’t going to make the quarter to give them a big picture presentation rather than one focused solely on your own shortcomings.
Moon is in detail oriented Virgo until Wed., and my advice, is to get organized for a powerful full Moon in Scorpio which is coming on May 5th. This one is going to be full of insights into your own emotional make-up. Are you able to face intense psychic situations without losing control? If not, use caution in planning your activities during the next week. Cycles you thought were long gone could resurrect themselves on this upcoming Scorpio Moon. Best for you to have made preparations to protect yourself if you are feeling fragile. Maybe not the time to do any mediation in legal cases or try to have that psychological break through at your therapists with your ex. Although it is entirely possible it could be just what you may need, it could also flip you off the deep end. In other words, this is not the week to release ultimatums or make huge life changing decisions, unless of course, you want the doo doo to hit the fan, which it will. It would be easy to turn yourself into a victim is you don’t have the awareness that this is just plain going to be an intense time. The powers that be are watching and they will lay off your sorry self on May 5th if every T isn’t crossed and every I dotted at work or school. If you are doing exams or writing a final paper or proposal for school or work, focus today and tomorrow to get the work done now and not then.
The late afternoon/evening will start off with the Virgo Moon Sextile Mars in Virgo at 4:59PM EST which could mean some aggressive traffic on the drive home or a problem at work just before you leave. Use caution and expect the unexpected at that time as the energy of that moment could take the form of aggression and the attack may be in the details. Try to stay cool on your commute and for goodness sake pay attention while driving.
At bedtime or as your winding down tonight, 9:25PM EST, there is a Virgo Moon Sextile Mars in Virgo which could mean you are reliving the details of the day over and over again. It is a weak aspect so try and divert yourself with other activities such as cleaning out your closet or organizing the fridge.
On the “Bigger Picture” , long term 2012 side of things, this is a turbulent time for many in their Love relationships and there are a lot of urges to make changes. Try changing your own habits first before trying to change the ones you love. Saturn is squared Mercury and that makes for some interesting communication problems. You say white, they say black. If you are bored with this way of discussing things, change yourself a bit. If they say black, you say gray for a change. If you go to bed at 9pm, try 10pm. If you always have Pasta on Wednesdays, try Chinese instead. Make yourself more interesting so don’t ask everyone else to change, start with your own habits.
Today my hands are free!
Annealing, chasing, forming are all in progress…
This is a spiculum (a hollow tapered tube) necklace that I made over winter break. It all started as silver scrap that was melted into ingots, rolled out, and fabricated. It was a lot of fun to make!
Sterling Silver, gold leaf, and blue topaz
It is also one of my submission to the Hot Under the Collar exhibition that will be help at the SNAG conference this spring.
