Tuesday starts on a fine note, with the Moon in Sagittarius fresh off a conjunction with buoyant Jupiter in Sagittarius. Late afternoon, however, sees the Moon slide into Capricorn. From there, the Moon rumbles through the evening with a trine to conjoined Sun and Uranus in Taurus, spotlighting the necessity of adapting effectively to disruptions. Though some may find themselves having to make big moves, the right shift for most people will look be low-key and practical, but powerful, innovations. Late night, the Moon squares conjoined Venus in Aries, generating a short burst of rowdiness.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences

The Moon in Sagittarius opposes red Mars mid-day, fueling motivation and irritation alike. Yet as the afternoon continues, the fire fades, as does the focus, due to the Moon’s square with disorienting, day-dreaming Neptune in Pisces.
All the while, it is today that the Sun completes its conjunction with Uranus in Taurus, the first to occur in the Bull’s sign for many decades. Fix your eye on the disruptions, mutations, and revelations which have been hovering above and shaking beneath the last several days. This breaking of patterns is a new pattern, due to repeat well into the next decade. Take heed.
Fortunately, evening is increasingly pleasant, due to the Moon edging closer and closer to a smiling, supportive conjunction with benefic Jupiter in Sagittarius during the wee hours.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences

The Moon enters driven, emotional Scorpio first thing on Friday, and spends the morning in an opposition with Uranus in Taurus, seeding the first portion of the day with insights, surprises, and disruptions. After Uranus makes its alterations, the Scorpio mood continues down its proper tunnel.
Meanwhile, Mercury conjoins the planetoid Chiron, turning thoughts towards wounds of the mind and body, and the processes by which they fester and heal.
After darkness falls and the just-past-full Moon rises, the Sun sets hoof in Taurus. The transition from Aries to Taurus takes energy levels down a bit, and calls us to adjust our pacing to a sustainable ratio of business and pleasure. The Sun in Taurus favors steady efforts and ample leisure, so plan accordingly. The Sun will reside within the bovine sign until May 21st, when it enters Gemini.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences

The Full Moon in Libra arrives today. This is a rare second Full Moon in Libra in a row. Occurring as it does in the last degree of Libra, it is a strange mirror and bookend to the Full Moon in Libra on March 20th, which took place in the very first degree of the Scales.
The theme of balance is indeed salient, as this Moon is configurated to both the best and worst planets currently in the sky. Bright, inspiring Jupiter blesses this lunation, yet Saturn, Pluto, and the Dragon’s Tail look upon it with a less gentle set of eyes. This Full Moon places both the opportunities and challenges of the year in its pair of scales, and sets them a-wobbling. The balance struck will be decided within you, for just as the soul is said to be judged, the soul is itself the ultimate judge.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences

A nearly-full Moon in Libra saunters swiftly through Wednesday, overflowing with ideas and energy. Neurons fire fast and furiously today, due to Mercury’s entrance into Aries last night and the Moon’s trine with manic Mars in Gemini late tonight. It is a good day to do accomplish many small things, as it may be difficult to sustain attention on lengthy singular tasks.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences
