The day before the New Moon in Taurus, April 25. Did that Aries Moon rattle things up yesterday?
ARIES MOON, Keeps on offering up surprises and another round of familiar CARDINAL LUNAR crosses; square Pluto in CAPRICORN, conjunct URANUS in ARIES and Mercury too. Add on another FIRE Trine to SATURN.
Don’t give up on speaking your truth yet. With Mercury still Retro, things are dragging out.
MERCURY turns DIRECT on May 3rd.
Moon enters earthy TAURUS in the evening prepping for the New Taurus Moon
Inspirational card of the day
Rohrig Tarot Knight of Pentacles/Disks or
Known as the King of PENTACLES in the Rider-Waite-Smith deck, this card governs the 21st degree of LEO the last decan to the 20th degree of VIRGO, ruled by MARS, and the first decan ruled by MERCURY and second decan of Virgo ruled by SATURN. In the calendar that would be August 12th to September 11/12
It is the fiery active part of the earth transitioning from Leo to Virgo. Putting inspired or fiery intelligence to practical use would be one very good translation of the meaning of this card.
This card can indicate earthquakes and there was a large earthquake 6.9 in Chile yesterday but no reported injuries. The Recent powerful sunspot or CME’s on the 21st are always linked to earthquakes. You may feel these more internally as physical ups and down, or deep emotions erupting within you.
The Card in the THOTH deck shows the Knight looking east. The “grass is greener somewhere else.” or he has already harvested what he needs for now standing in the tall grass and is looking into his future growth and what he will harvest next. This is a very practical card and not connected to “wool gathering” or idle fantasies as Virgo is all about hard work dedication, perfection, workaholism, and worry.
Mercury rules VIRGO in general. With Mercury Retrograde in Aries we are definitely curbing our mental enthusiasm.
Huachuma comes from the San Pedro cactus, native to Peru and Bolivia.

This card also relates to using natural herbs and medicines. The ancients knew how to talk to the plant devas who instructed humans on how to use the properties of the plants. Terrence McKenna claims that mushroom spores from alien planets created human life on earth. Ingesting psychedelic mushrooms are what gave humans consciousness in the first place so he writes. That makes perfect sense to me and hence the flocking of people to South America to experience ayahuasca and San Pedro in South America and the peyote cactus used as a sacrament for spiritual and psychological healing.
Stay grounded, the New Moon in TAURUS will bring further embodied sensuality.
