Astrology Forecast for April 29 - May 5, 2018

As we slowly progress into lunar Taurus, let’s discover this week’s opportunities!

This week is, by far, one of the heaviest of the whole lunar month. Four planets are in dense Capricorn, the sun is in fixed Taurus, and three planets are in retrograde motion – Pluto, Saturn, and Jupiter. From our point of view on Earth, it seems these planets are trying to run away from us! Even our communication feels a bit strange; the third house of communication is in unpredictable Aquarius, while Mercury is still in Aries!

The cosmic advice for all of us lies in the following three key words: explore (rising Sagittarius), prepare, and ground work (Capricorn). If we take a closer look, we can see the chart contains many cardinal planets to support a proactive attitude and behavior. In fact, we have an unbelievable opportunity to analyze and bring order to our thoughts this whole week, even if the preparation has to be virtual for the time being.

As we have discussed before, the time period of the Omer is a time when the Light is concealed. The Light, or energy, hides so we can work to reveal it on our own. Kabbalists advise us to avoid starting anything new during the Omer. Although, it’s completely okay to pursue ventures. This lasts until Lag b’Omer – the highlight of lunar Taurus, which occurs on the 18th day of the lunar month (May 2nd at nightfall through May 3rd).

A very positive feature this week is the moon, beautifully placed in Libra to deliver inner harmony and balance, even in this heavy time. Additionally, we notice the presence of two great trines in the chart. Together, they create an almost perfect Star of David – a very positive omen for all of us. Let’s hope this flow of energy will counterbalance the heaviness we all feel.

On a practical level, we should sit down, research new ideas, and create balanced systems in both life and work. We would do well to thoroughly prepare protocols for projects (Virgo MC), and activate the whole lot on the day of Lag b’Omer. Or we can simply wait until lunar Gemini.

The cosmic energy at this time encourages us to conceive, pre-plan, and create blueprints to be activated later in the month. It’s also a great time to take care of our health, start a new diet, and definitely restrict overindulgent behavior. The fruits of all our efforts will be seen in the future!

Next week, many highlights and positive time zones will be downloaded for us!
