Times are EDT
What you have to say has considerably more impact today, Aries, but the tendency is to be a little critical or negative, and this should be watched and tamed. There is more clarity, purpose, and authority in your words. People may be asking for your advice or opinion. Don’t let vague worries or fears dominate, and if you need to make an important presentation, be careful that you concentrate on positive points in addition to the flaws that you are seeing especially clearly.
New light can be shed on a past or private matter today, Taurus. Someone could confide in you, a secret might emerge, or you can have an epiphany about a past event or relationship. There can be more clarity to an issue, but possibly some worry, disappointment, or negative thoughts. You are certainly more sensitive to hidden and subtle aspects of situations and interactions, and possibly especially sensitive to anything that appears to be rejection, but it is more likely to be a misunderstanding. You can be quite introspective today.
You might be involved in group discussions, teamwork, and planning now, Gemini. You have a special need to be involved, to contribute, and to feel connected. An important conversation with a friend might occur today. Even so, there may be a bit of a hump to get over or a disappointment to face up to today. You might be feeling very positive and idealistic one minute, but then something discourages you. New plans can hit snags or roadblocks now. Fortunately, tonight you’re more able to unwind and let problems go.
Whether or not you are working today, Cancer, thoughts and possibly conversations as well can often turn to career, goals, and long-term life plans. What you say has more impact – and possibly can attract some critique. You could be in the position to speak on a matter in a public or professional fashion. Try to be as clear as possible, as your message is bound to come across powerfully right now, and to avoid being too negative or critical yourself. While you may benefit from speaking with a trusted authority about your plans, be discriminating about who you let in right now. It’s possible that you feel a bit bogged down with routine things to do, which takes away from using your talents.
This is a time when the desire to communicate directly and openly, or to be upfront with your beliefs and wants, is especially strong, dear Leo. You may have the opportunity to be heard now, and while you can be quite persuasive and generous with your ideas, there can be some negative thinking or critique now that is disappointing or discouraging. An idea that you have been considering recently might reach a head, but there can be a temporary block or delay involved. While this can be frustrating, you can feel good about the clarity coming to a situation now. Editing and reviewing are appropriate now.
The need to be or to keep busy is strong today, Virgo. A recent idea may blossom today, although you could become aware of a roadblock that requires attention. There can be interesting news or conversations surrounding work and health goals or projects, recent research, finances, or intimate relationships. Solutions may be on the horizon, and an epiphany of sorts can occur now. You might be in the position of spokesperson today, and your words have more impact than usual.
There can be a lot of focus on a relationship or what a partner has to say right now, Libra. Keep in mind that there’s not a whole lot of room for emotions today, and while you can come to a clearer picture on a technical level of a situation, the more human aspects may not be accounted for in decisions made now. A creative idea can come full bloom now, but needs refinement before pressing forward. There is slightly discouraging energy today, but it’s about facing reality about something, or slowing yourself down long enough to fix mistakes.
You can have a strong desire to put your thoughts and things into order today, Scorpio, and there is a focus now on being helpful and effective in your communications. However, there can also be some pressure to come up with answers that you’re not ready to provide. Your usual routines and schedules can suffer today from changes of plans. Co-workers and acquaintances may require sensitive handling. Minor health flare-ups can be an issue for some. Watch carefully for clues on which plans or projects need refinement. You have a low boredom threshold today, and feel that you need to keep moving or communicating in order to stay engaged.
You may be excited to share your ideas or creations today, Sagittarius, although it may not be the best day to get the feedback you’re looking for. You should probably be extra careful about what you say or how you say it, as misunderstandings are possible. A recent idea that likely had its beginnings in mid-February might blossom or bear fruit now. There can be sudden clarity about a matter, but do keep in mind that with this illumination, flaws in plans can be more noticeable. Don’t allow this to discourage you. Instead, work on ideas to fix and edit mistakes and oversights. An important conversation with a lover can occur today for some of you.
You can be a little stiff or serious today, dear Capricorn, and decisions tend to be hard to make – even agonizing. Consider that you are not yet ready to make them. Make adjustments and refinements instead of sweeping changes or brand new endeavors today. For you, confidence returns when you have met your responsibilities, but try not to be too hard on yourself on this level – often you take on more than your share. There can be conversations with, about, or on behalf of family. You can be direct yet sensitive now.
You can have a strong desire to share your thoughts, or you may be anxious for a conversation today, Aquarius, but your ideas or opinions may be challenged, or there may be blocks due to poor planning, bad timing, or other delays. Communications with others may be strained or critical at times, and you might experience problems dealing with communication devices. Stay positive and flexible. In fact, information surfacing now can be quite significant, particularly related to a recent idea that you’ve been considering.
Today’s energies are complicated for practical affairs, dear Pisces. On one hand, there can be a powerful idea blossoming now, and on another, a strong awareness of its flaws. While discouraging at first, ultimately it’s for the best. Look to make adjustments and important edits. You are capable of real, useful solutions to problems now. There can be a significant conversation or important news surfacing now that significantly contributes to business or practical affairs and money-making pursuits.

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.
BALANCE OF MODES
Scores: Cardinal 7; Fixed 5; Mutable 5
The modes are balanced in this chart.
LUNAR PHASE: DISSEMINATING
Moon 135 to 90 degrees behind the Sun.
Sharing our knowledge with the world is a major motivation at this stage. We believe we have gained much knowledge and wisdom through our experiences, and want to ensure others have the benefit as well.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EDT) on April 9th:
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).
