Waning Crescent Moon
Pisces Water Energy

As we begin this week in the final phase of Grandmother Moon’s cycle the early evening of April 30 at 4:26 pm EDT. The 🌘 Waning Crescent / Balsamic Moon reminds us that it is time to surrender. 

As we release to allow for healing, it provides us with soothing energy as we are guided to surrender. And release …

Now there is just a sliver of Grandmother Moon being lit up and decreasing as it moves towards the new moon.

This is the time to surrender, rest and recuperate. You’ve now gone through an entire cycle – things have come and gone – willingly or not. 

The theme during this time is emptiness.

You will be preparing to set new intentions with the new cycle, but not during this moon. Just relax and surrender to the universe.

The ♓ Pisces💧 Water Energy began yesterday at 6:15 am EDT and will take us through Wednesday April 27, 2022, 9:34 am EDT.

Water Moons are very emotional, psychic, and mysterious. In this case, ♓ Pisces💧 Water Energy is the final Moon before we start back into the ♈ Aries 🔥 Fire Moon.

During this ♓ Pisces💧Water Moon, it’s time to connect to your deepest, darkest, and most delicate part of your psyche, spirituality, fears, and institutions.

Pisces Water Energy

On a good ♓ Pisces Moon Day, life can feel dreamy and romantic. It’s a day when one-hour melds into the next and no one seems in too much of a rush for anything. Poetry can be written and read. Meditations go deeper. Soulmates can appear, or unite or reunite. The word “soulful” gets put to good use. 

What’s not to like about a Pisces Moon Day? Well, addictions might be an issue for some of us. Self-pity, a sense of being lost, and of being a martyr, happen more readily on a Pisces Moon Day

But it’s a balance; just as a Pisces Moon Day can be about altered states reached with drugs and alcohol, it can also be about getting into an altered state by doing a spiritual practice that connects you to the Divine. Or even better, because of being with someone who makes you feel like you’ve seen God/dess.

Pisces Water Energy
Aries Fire Energy

As we near the end of the ♓ Pisces💧Water Energy at 9:34 am EDT, we are reminded that this is a good time for swimming, dreaming, and bathing. But it’s not so good for rigorous mental or physical work, arguments, and being down to earth. 

Dream a little or big. Your choice. Remember to not expect it to come true without some concrete follow-through. This is a step we often forget.

During this very brief 🌚⚠️ Void of Course Moon (VOC) 🌙,  you can use this time to connect with your spirituality; declutter your life (physical or emotional); stick with your routine; rest, make plans during this time; socialize; take a trip; review things that need editing in life or work; and finish up something that you started. This energy will come in from 9:36 am until 12:09 pm EDT.

At 12:10 pm EDT, we move into the fiery, impulsive, and passionate ♈ Aries 🔥 Fire Moon. As the first Zodiac it brings about new beginnings. Aries also brings bravery, boldness, and spontaneity. We need to keep our emotions in check as they can run high when the Moon is in Aries. Aries is ruled by the angry war planet Mars. So be careful if you’re very Moon-tuned and find yourself in the middle of an argument. 

 Take a few deep breaths and remind yourself that the Aries Moon is no excuse to lose your hard-earned cool. Instead, use the Aries energy to Get Things Done.

Aries Fire Energy

♈ Aries Moon Days are filled with impulsive energy, and it’s easy to feel quite driven. This is a perfect time to channel that energy into something constructive. It’s also a time when enthusiasm flows. 

It’s important to not take offense today as it will be easily done. This is also a seriously good day for meditation, as we all need that extra injection of Zen when the Moon is in Aries. Good for … racing through the day

Aries Fire Energy
Taurus Earth Energy

We will spend a good part of our daily hours in ♈ Aries 🔥Fire Energy until 5:37 pm EDT. These days are good for racing through the day, but they are not good days for quiet introspection. It’s important to not pick a fight during this time. And go as fast as you can to keep the energy up. 

Until 8:19 pm, we will move into this very short 🌚⚠️ VOID MOON (VOC) 🌙 where we transition between ♈ Aries 🔥Fire to ♉ Taurus ⛰️ Earth energy. It isn’t reflecting elements or making any major aspects with either sign. This is a gap between those transitions. Head caution during these times: don’t start anything “big” or “important”. It’s important to avoid things like presentations, facilitating workshops, or job interviews; sharing important information – it will either get lost or could be misunderstood; plans you make during this time may not work out; avoid starting new projects; people are not what they seem, so be mindful; avoid large purchases.

♉ Taurus ⛰️ Earth Energy is good for relaxing and canoodling, eating, and basking. Avoid doing unpleasant tasks on these days. Indulge your senses and enjoy some creature comforts. Taurus is represented by the bull, avoid being stubborn.

Taurus Earth Energy

We will spend the entire weekend in this ♉ Taurus ⛰️ Earth Energy as we move into the 🌑 New Moon at 4:27 pm EDT. The New Moon is all about beginnings as we enter into this grounding, practical, and stable New Moon. 

This is a lovely Moon sign … the Moon and Taurus go really well together. They both have a bit of a “food” thing going on the Moon rules food and Taurus loves food. So, watch out for overeating if you’re watching your weight, but enjoy yourself if you’re not. This is a sensual and relaxing Moon placement so try not to have anything too jarring to do. Having a massage or lazing around all day in bed with your lover/cat/ a cup of tea is ideal. this is a No Rush day.

This is the time of the month when the moon and the sun are on the same side of the Earth. To us on Earth it looks like the dark side of the moon is facing us.

Historically during this time, women took time away from everyone during this time, as it represents the menstrual cycle, the menses. 

The new moon is about fresh starts. This is a time to retreat to regain strength to start again. 

This is your time to “reboot intensely”. Visualize filling yourself up to recharge under the energy of this new moon. Throw away all unwanted thoughts and excess “junk”. 

Give yourself as much alone time as possible. Embrace any feelings of wanting to be alone to introspect. As Grandmother Moon shifts to her dark side to us, turn yourself inward, move away from the energy of others, and take time for yourself.

Taurus Earth Energy

As Grandmother Moon is already started to make itself visible. This is a great time to set your intentions with this 🌒 Waxing Crescent Moon. Her energy is correspondingly active and dynamic. Ancient druids regarded it as the most auspicious time to work creative magic – to catch the rising tide. The potential of the new Moon is starting to manifest. Keep your intentions in mind and act.

 As we start off in this ♉ Taurus ⛰️ Earth Energy Season, we focus on that slow and steady plod of Taurus. If you’re aiming to increase your cash flow, the abundant Taurus Moon makes it a very good time to work on your visualizations and plans. This is a good month for indulge your senses and enjoy some creature comforts as well.
