The Quarter Moon on April 29 2012 at 5:57 am EDT is at 9°29′ Leo. Astrologically, the influence of a quarter Moon lasts for seven days. As the quarter Moon is a square aspect between the Sun and Moon, the energy is tense or uncomfortable and can often manifest as some difficulty in relationships. Sun square Moon means that our need for emotional security can be in conflict with our need to shine in the world. In the first quarter Moon we are still in the “new start” or building and planning phase of the New Moon. Only now, we have to make adjustments to fit these new goals or projects into the structure of our relationships. This week is still favorable for furthering our goals, but we have to be more considerate of our loved ones.
April 29 Quarter Moon Horoscope
This is a spooky quarter Moon because it falls on the fixed star Asellus Australis (08♋53) which the Chinese called “The Spirit of the Ancestors“. They believed that when the Moon was conjunct this star “they would have peculiar experiences with the realms of the dead“. Eric Morse says that with the Moon this star is good for psychics and astrologers and gives “really reliable psychism“. This occultist Moon gains more power being the apex of a Yod to the sextile between Chiron and Pluto. This sextile suggest soul healing as a result of uncovering deep wounds.
The Moon rules families and our past. Pluto rules genetics and the soul memory held in the genes of every cell in our body. There is a theory in science that genes not only hold the record of our evolution, but also the blueprint for our future evolution. This quarter Moon will force us to look at problems in our family relationships. The involvement of Chiron and Pluto in this Yod points to the uncovering of skeletons in the family closet. Chiron is the focal point of a Minor Grand Trine to the Sun and Pluto, so ultimately, the confrontating of any unpleasant memories or family secrets should lead to a very spiritual healing for the individual as well as family members, present and passed.
