Monday, April 23 Equine Astrology TOD

Equine Astrology Tip of the Day for Monday, April 23: Hey equestrians! the Moon in Leo squares Jupiter in Scorpio this afternoon/evening, a pattern that inclines us to be both opinionated and over confident. Best *know* our horse can do it, and (as important) WILL, before taking on that oxer in the exercise ring this afternoon. Moon square Jupiter is a good aspect for pleasure too, so me, I'd set up with lemonade and a book in a chair outside the ring, and watch the show.

Equine Astrology TOD for Friday the 13th

Friday the 13th (April) Equine Astrology TOD: Things actually look fairly good for Friday the 13th, primary caution being the Moon void all day (7:27 am-11:26 pm EDT; 4:27 am-8:26 pm PDT). Moon Void means, don't sign (important documents) don't buy (important items), don't begin important projects, a good excuse to just go ride our horse! (Don't sweat the small stuff though). Moon void in Pisces, the sign of the ocean ... if we have a "dolphin proof" horse, that might be the one to take!

Friday the 13th TMAstrology

I'd promised last week I'd get astrological updates out more frequently--but Mercury retrograde had other ideas! Caught up now (sound of clapping in distance)-(so watch someone contact me and say, wait ... you forgot my chart ...) so hopefully, more regular updates. Astro for FRIDAY THE 13TH (of April) looks ... you know, not too bad. Other than the Moon being Void of Course from 7:27 am EDT to 11:26 pm EDT (don't buy important or expensive items or begin important new projects), and Mercury moving very slow in the sky (continuing transportation delays and communication flub-ups) everything else should proceed great!--except for the things that don't. There, aren't you glad you have an astrologer here to help you plan?

Monday, April 2 Equine Astrology TOD

Equine Astrology Tip of the Day for Monday, April 2nd: Today, Monday April 2nd, stars favor patient and controlled release of energy. Just remember that if we're off to ride any bouncy young greenlings this afternoon, they may have not gotten the notice, so wear that helmet even if it'll mess up your hair.

Easter and astrology

I hope everyone had a happy Easter. Today most people know Easter as a Christian holiday with pagan roots. And some people know that the reason Easter jumps around the calendar (unlike Christmas, which is always reliably on Dec 25) is because Easter Sunday is set as the first Sunday after the Full Moon following the Vernal Equinox. This date varies from year to year, because the first full moon after the vernal equinox varies from year to year. But here's some more detail to complete the picture: the reason WHY the fourth century Council of Nicaea determined the date for Easter would be so set is that in the era before electricity, pilgrims traveling to celebrate the Holy Week needed light to travel by--thus, Easter was set as the Sunday nearest to the spring Full Moon. Because astrology is essentially the art of giving meaning to astronomical phenomena, you could say that Easter is an astrology-based holiday. Share this with your Christian conservative friends and get the conversation going! (on second thought ... better not ...).
