Pegasus Flies as Venus Disappears during Meteor Shower
The Influence of Pegasus, Meteor Showers and the Moon on Mars & Venues.
Whether we are in San Francisco or on the other side of the country in the land of Mordor - Washington, DC influences from the great constellation Pegasus will be felt.
In Greek mythology, Pegasus is the winged horse that was fathered by Poseidon with Medusa. When her head was cut of by the Greek hero Perseus, the horse sprang forth from her pregnant body. Only by using a magical bridle was Bellerophon able to capture the incredible Pegasus. The gods then gave him Pegasus for killing the monster Chimera but when he attempted to mount the horse it threw him off and rose to the heavens, where it became a constellation (north of the ecliptic).
As Venus (now a morning star) recently stationed direct (April 17th) will come together with Mars (@ 4:19 PM PDT) in oceanic, emotional Pisces this is both a time of romance and idealism steeped in fantasy.
The HELIACAL RISING STAR for both locations is Fomalhaut, from the Arabic Fum al Hut, the Fish's Mouth, found in the constellation Piscis Austrinus or the Southern Fish. Fomalhaut is one of the Royal Stars of Persia and corresponds to one of the archangelic stars. Gabriel (Fomalhaut) watcher of the South. Gabriel (Fomalhaut) watcher of the South.
On Wednesday morning, April 22nd, Earth will pass through a stream of comet dust, giving rise to the annual Lyrid meteor shower. At the same time, the crescent Moon and Venus will converge for a close encounter in the eastern sky. Viewed from some parts of the world, the Moon will pass directly in front of Venus, causing Venus to vanish.
This event occurs at 6:29 AM PDT Wednesday less then 24 hours after both Mars and Venus meet.
The NASA article goes on to say:
The Moon-Venus conjunction is pure coincidence. It has nothing to do with the Lyrid display other than insurance. Even if the shower fizzles, the sight of a 9% crescent Moon located so close to brilliant Venus is guaranteed to make your day.

Back to the energies of Pegasus first with the West Coast where the star Alpheratz is rising with Jupiter in a tight orb 01 mins 01 secs -
This is signified by teh explorer, inventor and/or reformer...
"The Great Square of Pegasus" is prominent and it consists of four stars; Alpheratz, Algenib, Markab and Scheat.
In DC we find the star Markab culminating with the Moon is Culminating orb 01 mins 45 secs - To be emotionally consistent, to be unchanging in one's devotion.
Note that Markab is is Arabs' word for a Saddle, Ship, or Vehicle,— anything ridden upon,— that was early applied to this star; but they also designated it as Matn al Faras, the Horse's Withers or Shoulder,
Note that in the chart set for Washington, DC @ 7:19 PM, Markab also is setting as Mars is Setting orb 00 mins 20 secs - To be honest, and act in an open-handed way.
Per Ebertin, Mercury-Mars nature. Tradition has it that, in conjunction with Mars, Uranus or Saturn, this will bring dangers from fire, weapons or explosions. Tied up with propitious stellar bodies, Markeb is said to influence above all the spiritual and mental nature,
The Pegasus Syndrome, as exemplified in the legends of Perseus and Bellerophon, is concerned with the innate ability possessed by some people to negotiate difficulties by rising above them, on the one hand, and the danger of overreaching themselves, on the other. Pegasus, by birth, is the child of Medusa and Neptune, symbols of 'wisdom' and 'emotion,' respectively, which shows the dichotomy of his nature. As in the story, Bellerophon attempted to fly to Olympus (overreach his potential). He believed that Pegasus was subject to his will. However, it was Pegasus who made it to Olympus, while Bellerophon was tossed back to earth, lame and reproached by others. It is unwise to take any situation for granted as the 'lesser' person (or, in this case, beast) may be the very one to teach us the much needed lesson in humility
Actually the major action is later in the day when Venus-Mars meet in passionate embrace @ 4:19 PM and then @ 9:38 PM
the Moon translates the light of previous meetings with Uranus and another unexpected encounter occurs.
