Gibbous Moon Phase: trust, dream

Moon in Libra

Skill: take a closer look; what is true and real

True Alignments: elevated views or perspectives, intentions, in awe of nature, seeing the clues, brilliance, creations of beauty, opening up, alternate possibilities, tradition, desire, regaining a sense of control, inventiveness

Catalysts for Change: following the rules when they no longer apply, desire to escape, lost in a flight of fancy when the facts do not match up, afraid to act, being lured or seduced, denying self, not open to receiving, premature disclosure, power struggles

Our year-long adventure of the "magic carpet ride" offers us new scenery and unique views today. 

Venus moves to and re-activates the energy of the New Moon in Aries, 19 Aries and the Sabian symbol of "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery." This energetic is about transcending. 

Today, the magic carpet ride has a few things to show:

1- ERUPTIONS and BREAKING POINTS:  The Earth is discharging the energetic of "a broken bottle and spilled perfume." This brings the potential for things that have been building up to come to a point of release. It can be hard to concentrate when this degree of the zodiac is activated. Sometimes things have to break and spill out before we understand what we had. Feelings of loss can come up. It's what happens after things are released (the aftermath) that is important. We want to handle it with care. 

The Sun is discharging the energetic of "an electrical storm," which tends to also bring tensions and breaking points. Things happen quickly - like lightning being unleashed. 

2- APPEARANCES: Something just may not seem right or seem as it first appeared to us. This energeticoccurs with the Sun at "an electrical storm" in combination with Mercury at "a moving finger points to significant passages I a book." We are directed to go back and see what we missed. What is truly valuable and important? 

Saturn helps us see what is truly valuable and important as it discharges the energetic of "sea gulls flying around a ship looking for food." What is fake and what is real? What is just scraps and what just needs to be scrapped?

3- ADMISSION: Uranus moves to the 22 degree of Libra and the energetic of "the gate to the garden of unfulfilled desires." What do we want? We have to admit it before we can have it. We step up to the gate and open it. The gate (what we desire) is there, but do we feel worthy enough to open it? This energetic will be in effect until May 7, the day of the New Moon in Taurus, so the theme will evolve until then. Let's aim to cross the gateway to our unfulfilled desires and then fulfill them.

Flashes of inspiration and insight come like lightning on our magic carpet ride today. Much is revealed to us, all for the cause of transcending what limits us. We will rise above and ride over any storms or broken glass.
