We’re inclined to give of ourselves today. With both the Sun and Mars connecting favorably to Neptune, this is a good time for acting on our intuition and imagination, making a dream happen, and connecting with a higher purpose.
- The Moon is in Virgo all day (until Thursday, April 30th, at 10:03 AM).
- The Moon is waxing, and is in its First Quarter phase until 10:51 PM / Waxing Gibbous phase from 10:51 PM forward.
Times are EDT
You have easy access to your subconscious mind and your inner world today, Aries. Some of you could even feel a little psychic now. Private time is helpful today, even though you are also very geared to getting work done. Intuition works wonders now – if you have a hunch, it’s probably correct, particularly if it relates to business and money matters today. You might want to take action on money management or a business idea, but your best bet today would be to flesh out a project already in progress with more imaginative details. Some form of release from recent pressures can come now.
You can be especially centered and peaceful today, Taurus, and yet quite ready to pursue your dreams and take action if it’s necessary. The more easygoing and likable qualities of your nature are emphasized now, and they draw others to you. You can feel quite supported and positive about your lot in life as well as where your life is headed. You can give great advice today, or you can inspire or be inspired by friends and connections. At the moment, you tend to gravitate towards both situations and people that are healthy for you. You have more faith in achieving your dreams and happiness goals.
People might turn to you for your unique and wise advice, and as a creative lead, Gemini. The special flair that distinguishes you from the crowd is even more noticeable and enhanced today. There could be strong support from behind the scenes or from an unexpected source. Your intuition, as well, is serving you very well, and especially so for what to do and say, and even what to wear, in order to succeed. There could be warm feelings about a secret or private matter today for some of you.
Today is strong for presentation of your ideas, friendships, and communications, Cancer. You have a real sense for future trends and a special ability to connect with others intuitively. You might especially enjoy the arts or spiritual pursuits right now. You are putting things into a larger context, leading to a nice feeling of emotional fullness. You might inspire a friend, but you could just as easily become inspired by someone or even by ideas themselves.
You more naturally take the initiative in emotional situations today, Leo. This is a good time for career matters, and recognition for your efforts and talents is quite possible now. With some creativity, you are also in the position to improve your financial state. It’s a good time for gathering up support if you need it. You are in the creative spotlight. Others can be quite intrigued with you, and drawn to you naturally. Intuition is strong for what the public needs and for future trends, and this helps you to make better plans. Research and development can yield results that seem magical.
Your sign has a reputation for seeing the details, sometimes at the expense of the big picture, Virgo. However, with Neptune and Chiron in your opposing sign for many years, there is a strong tendency for you to see significant others as a whole rather than a set of parts. You are less likely to see the flaws this way, which can be magical on one hand, and possibly a little naive on the other. Today, your compassion for others is even stronger, and you could have the opportunity to support someone who needs your help either mentally, physically, or spiritually. You are likely to receive favorable, positive responses to your ideas or plans.
Your imagination is in full swing today, Libra, and while this can sometimes lead to unnecessary drama, today it’s working for you. You are especially receptive to subtle changes and motions, and understanding of cycles and connections. Some of you could gain more insight to your work, health, and possibly an intimate relationship as well today. Untapped or hidden resources can be discovered today. For some, a small windfall or support coming in from others can be part of the picture. It’s a strong time for making plans to get the most from your work or health projects and programs.
This is a good time to inject some whimsy and imagination, and possibly compassion, into a relationship, Scorpio, and to attract others to you. While this is a good time to enjoy artistic and creative pursuits as an observer, it’s even better for participating, making, creating, and turning imagination into reality. Creative movement can be healing, and so can making connections or reaching out compassionately. You are more giving with your time and energy. You might desire to make something beautiful in your life and to share it with others.
This is a strong day for tending to practical affairs with extra imagination and a strong dose of intuition, Sagittarius. Even so, it’s a time for slowing down long enough to contemplate recent events and your own feelings. If you have been working hard or going through quick changes in your life, this is a time for more relaxation and rest. Assimilate, disengage, and process. You can have romantic feelings in connection to the past. A philanthropic or creative activity can be especially useful for letting loose your gentler, contemplative side. Intuitive insights into health or recent work projects can be helpful and right on mark.
Today is very good for sharing ideas, creative writing, and artistic expression, Capricorn. You are not only finding it easier to access your imagination these days, you are more courageous about expressing it with others. Many of you are gradually sharing more and more of your creative side with the world, and as you do and the feedback is good, you are building your confidence in so doing. Today you could benefit from word of mouth, and could be especially successful at promotional or publicity work.
Problem solving is enhanced today, particularly with regards to financial, home, and practical or mechanical matters, dear Aquarius. Sharing ideas or plans with family might be especially rewarding now. You have subtle but important opportunities for enhancing your family experiences and finding peace with your past. Money or resources for improving family life or for the home may be available now. You could find that a “going with the flow” approach to the day helps reduce recent stress, and that more colorful entertainment or activities that engage your imagination are both attractive right now and helpful.
It’s easier than usual to get your message across without too much in the way of explaining, Pisces, as well as for reaching out to others, socializing, and making connections. Transportation, communications, and learning/studying are in good shape, and come rather intuitively. You are effortlessly displaying your finer qualities, competencies, and personal strength today. People tend to be speaking highly of you, and there is a general ease and natural flow in social situations now. Your warmth and compassion are highlighted, but you are also maintaining an alluring aloof charm.

Meticulous, discriminating, pure, practical, health conscious, hard working. Can be hyper-critical, petty and perfectionistic.
We are especially in touch with the physical world. We consider what we’ve learned and experienced in the past in order to make the most of the present. We can be cautious, practical, and possibly unimaginative. We are deliberate and can pace ourselves well. We need hands-on experience and are not impressed with theory as much as we are with results. Routines are tolerable and comforting.
We may have a difficult time being objective or detached. We may not be especially communicative.
There may be some insensitivity or lack of empathy now. We may be out of touch with what we’re feeling or with our emotional needs. We may be tougher than usual now, and more inclined to follow mental or practical considerations than we are to listen to our intuition.
This is not a time that we tend to naturally initiate actions. We may be stronger at following up than starting anew. Survival mechanisms may be weaker now.
LUNAR PHASE: FIRST QUARTER
Moon from 90 to 135 degrees ahead of the Sun.
We are motivated to take action, perhaps due to a clash, conflict, or stress, as we are more aware of problems and differences now. Plans are beginning to take off or turn a corner. We should watch for pushing too hard.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EDT) on April 29th:
Note that when an aspect is applying, it has not yet happened but is within orb – it’s pending. When an aspect is separating, it has already happened/perfected and is moving away from the aspect. Depending on the speed of the planet/body involved, the aspect will have perfected, or will perfect, in a matter of hours (often the case with the Moon), days, months, and possibly years in the case of the very slow-moving outer planets and bodies.
Note that the Moon moves at a rate of approximately one degree every 2 hours, so that if an aspect involving is applying and has an orb of 5 degrees, the aspect will perfect (be exact) in about 10 hours. If the Moon is separating from an aspect with an orb of 2 degrees, it has already formed said aspect approximately 4 hours ago (since the following are positions at noon today, then it would have occurred at about 8 AM today).
**I suggest paying close attention to applying aspects. The energy of the aspect builds as it gets closer to exact. Once an aspect has happened, it’s over. Separating aspects are good to know for context, but in terms of energy that is with us today, applying aspects are most important. (This is the case for daily astrology influences involving inner planets, which pass quickly, and not natal astrology aspects, which are with us for a life time).
