WAXING QUARTER MOON exact 9.12 pm edt
Sun / Moon square [Taurus, Leo at 21 deg 03']
When the Moon squares the Sun, it can bring on irritating little problems and tension, but you can choose to use this time positively by working on any problems indicated by what house in your personal chart this Quarter Moon falls in. This influence lasts approximately a week until the next Full Moon on May 18th, and can indicate what needs to be reassessed in order to accomplish goals set at the previous New Moon.
For your forecast below, look for the one that corresponds to your rising sign. Don’t know it? Go to astro dot com for a free chart.

I bookmark this page for easy access … there is a lot of information on planetary hours for those of you who are new to the concept.
From the website: “Note that a Planetary Day starts at the moment of sunrise on the given date in the selected location and ends with the next sunrise in this location. So Planetary Days do not coincide with the common calendar days.”
