Read a full transcript of this episode:

0:30 – We celebrate Tuesday: Mars Day! (And to learn about the astrology poster:


5:38 – ** Moonwatch!** Today the Moon is in Aries. The Moon’s sign and aspects symbolize the rhythm, pace, and mood of the day. In Aries, we want to do things quickly! It’s a good day for doing something new, since Aries is a pioneer and likes a challenge – especially since the Moon opposes Mars (4:02 am PDT).


7:34 – April reeks of Mars (but her progressed Sun is in Libra)!


7:46 – Eerily similar voicemail questions from listeners Elliott (points for spelling!) and Joe, who wonder what it means when the transiting Sun is moving through the sign of one’s Moon and/or Ascendant. April offers some thoughts!


10:46 – The Sun transiting over your Ascendant (once each year) is like your second birthday! The Ascendant is the beginning of the chart, and the Sun there is like sunrise in your birth chart. When the Sun is in this sign, put the spotlight on yourself.


11:57 – The Sun connecting with your natal Moon is a little more uncomfortable. The Moon wants quiet, comfort, and seclusion, and the Sun crossing over your Moon shines a bright light on your most private places.


14:07 – The Sun brings recognition and joy, but when it first crosses over, a fierce spotlight is focused on some area of your chart, making you notice things so you can attend to them.


15:15 – Leave messages at SpeakPipe for future episodes!
