Equine Astrology Tip of the Day for Thursday, April 28: Mercury, god of communication, begins moving backward today. With Mars, god of action (and trouble) also moving backwards, now through May 22 will be a great time to review, rework, reconsider. Don't push the envelope (or the horse), just back up, rework, relax, have fun. It's a great time to search out the causes of problems while doing so!

It's that time again ... Mercury, god of communication, turns retrograde. The Sabian Symbol associated with the degree Merc turns retro gives this image: "An Indian, human scalps hanging at his belt, rides proudly." What's it mean? It means, with Mars, god of war, also moving retro, we'd be wise to not begin any war (or even argument) unless we're absolutely certain we have nothing to lose. Mercury will be retrograde until May 22nd. Remember also; Merc retro shreds schedules, so keep wiggle room in our planners.

A reminder that Mars, god of war, is on the warpath right now (moving retrograde, backwards in apparent motion). This increases odds of rushing, accidents, reactivity--especially for people born with Sun in the first 10 degrees of Sagittarius (that would be anyone born from about Nov 22nd to December 3rd). Gemini, Virgo, Pisces also (in general) more affected than other signs. If we're any of these signs, especially Sadge, have patience, don't rush, and think twice (three times) before responding to any perceived attack by unlocking the nuclear codes. Also, go easy on the condiments, esp Sagittarius. (What is it with Sadge and condiments? Yeeeesh ...).
Thurs eve/Fri Morn (April 21-22) is a Full Moon. This is a "Micro" Moon, meaning the Moon is at apogee (furthers point in orbit from Earth), and will appear smaller than avg Full Moon. Maybe this will mean people aren't as reactive as is usual this lunar phase but then again, this Full Moon is in the "cursed" sign of Scorpio. (Sorry Scorps, that's the ancient description of the sign; don't kill the messenger!). This Moon's aspects incline to social inhibitions, brings attention to widows, orphans, and martyrs, increases risk of quarrels or injuries and excitement or upsets involving love, money, or values. At least we won't be bored.

"My first day on the job, the boss asked me to make a fresh pot of coffee. Of course, I walked right out the door. He and the other sexist pigs at Starbucks can kiss my a**!" We're feeling especially rebellious today. Let's try and make it a productive revolution(personal or otherwise) andnot butt our head against a wall just because it's there.

Equine Astrology Tip of the Day for WED, April 6th: Actions today tend to be based on hidden motivations, which makes it the perfect day to investigate the normally unseen. Do you know how your snaffle bit works? (And why are you wearing it?--likely will work better if you use it on the horse ...)
TMAstrology for WEDNESDAY, April 6th: Shadow motivations drive behavior today, in ourselves as well as others. Best advice is stick to activities where we understand where we are coming from, or we may find ourselves behaving neurotically. (Have patience with all the neurotics out there; not everyone pays attention to the "proceed with caution" signs written right over their head).
