Horoscope By Triana J. Elan   April 29 – May 5, 2024

  • Written by Triana J. Elan

Venus Enters Taurus on Monday, Forms Square to Pluto in Aquarius; Mars Enters Aries on Tuesday, Forms Sextile to Pluto; Pluto at Station Thursday, Retrograde on Saturday

 What a week we have! Venus and Mars both enter their own signs a day apart, and Beltane is on Wednesday! Spring is springing!

Venus, the brightest planet in the sky, forms a square to Pluto. That’s a difficult alignment because it attacks the love life and causes all kinds of hassles for a few days. The good thing is, Mars forms a good alignment to Pluto at the same time and takes the edge off, so hopefully things will run somewhat smoothly, just more energetic than normal and without the fraught conflict of a Venus/Pluto square and its destructive influence on relationships that have a weak link in the chain.

Speaking of Pluto, he is going retrograde on Saturday and will indeed wander back into Capricorn territory and will remain retrograde until October 13. At first we had thought this retrograde would have Pluto remain in Aquarius, but no. He will touch Capricorn at 29 degrees. 

Keep looking up, stay healthy, and…

Keep looking after each other!

Who is Triana?

Triana is a professional astrologer and amateur astronomer who has had a lifelong love for the stars and planets, mythology, philosophy and science.

Due to her mother’s interest in astrology and metaphysics, Triana had access to a large library growing up and cut her teeth on Aesop’s Fables, a set of the Classics that her grandfather gave her and Greek mythology. By the time she was in the 6th grade she was playing with astrology and reading charts for her friends at school. 

Upon completing her university studies in biochemistry, Triana relocated to the United Kingdom in 1988 and began to study the patterns of the stars recorded in the landscape of Great Britain in the form of stone monuments. Using survey maps and a compass, Triana made her way from the islands of Scotland down to Cornwall and made good use of British astrology books and astrological groups and congresses led by the top astrologers of the 20th century. By the time she was 35, Triana’s own style of interpreting the angles and aspects of the planets began to emerge. She began to receive serious attention in the UK for her astrological prowess and she flourished.

In 1996 Triana found success in writing weekly horoscopes through a small newspaper on Lopez Island, WA. Fairly quickly her name spread and her clientele increased, enabling her to travel to different places in Washington State to give presentations and conduct personal readings. Her clientele spanned from the UK to Canada as well as the United States. Visitors came to Lopez Island from afar as she herself became a destination in the islands.

Triana has been featured on television, radio and in newspapers in the United States, Canada, Mexico and the UK.
