Last night, I had a successful moon hunting session. I took my son along, he decided that it was preferable to helping his dad do the washing up! We went up our lane which heads East and opens out onto some fields, just as my son was beginning to doubt my timing the moon rose, pale and pink above the trees. I’m always impressed by how huge it looks on the horizon and how fast it moves. By the way, talking about the fast moving moon, it is now in Scorpio, it just manged to be full in the last degree of Libra before moving into Scorpio at 1.42 yesterday afternoon.
Today is a busy day astrologically. Firstly, this morning, the sun moved out of Aries into sensual earth sign Taurus. Then this afternoon, Venus, the planet of love and attraction and ruler of Taurus, moves from soft dreamy idealistic Pisces into neighbouring Aries. Here it joins Mercury which made the same move earlier in the week. Two planets moving into Aries ups the tempo this is because Aries is ruled by energetic passionate planet, Mars.
There is a quite a strong Venus and Mars link going on at the moment, as Mars is in Taurus and Venus is in Aries, so they are in each other’s signs. Astrologers call this mutual reception. Nature is certainly moving very fast at the moment, everything is growing and blossoming like mad, making the most of all this lovely sunshine. So this is a good time to act and do, I have been planting seeds this afternoon to put on my windowsill to germinate. This apple blossom in our garden came out yesterday in the warmth- apples are associated with the goddess Venus. Hope you have time to enjoy this beautiful season.

Did you see the moon last night? Wow it was so bright. It is full this lunch time at 12.12 BST. This full moon is unusual as it is the second Aries Libra full moon in a row. The first one was on March 21st just after the spring Equinox when the sun was just into Aries and the moon was just into Libra. This one is right at the end of the Aries Libra axis with the moon at Libra at 29 degrees. (there are thirty degrees of each sign).
Aries and Libra are both proactive cardinal signs, but they are opposites; Aries is about the self and Libra is about the other. So this axis is one of balancing our needs and actions in relation to others.
If you set any intentions a month ago on the spring equinox now is a good time to look at them and decide if you are on track and take action if necessary. I find this very useful as I am a distractible Sagittarius who needs to keep focused!
I hope you are enjoying your Easter bank holiday, if you
are lucky enough to have a few days off. The weather’s fab here in Norfolk. With a bit of luck the sky should be clear allowing us to see the moon rise. Look to the Eastern horizon just after sunset, here in Norfolk the sun sets at 8 pm and the moon rises at 8.01pm, should be good!

Today, Mercury planet of communication gets a bit of a boost. At 7.13 am this morning it moved into the sign of energetic go getting Aries. It has been in dreamy, vague Pisces since the 10th of February, this is a long time for Mercury to be in one sign, as it is the fastest planet in the solar system. The reason it was in Pisces for so long was that it went retrograde and back tracked through the sky then turned round and retraced its steps, all in Pisces. So , if communication has been a bit confused and unfocused for a while, things should be speeding up and getting clearer.
