We are entering a rather turbulent month which will be cracking open our pyches and our minds. The initiatory energy of Aries is rampant on many levels and we will find ourselves taking the next steps forward in our lives. Mercury turns direct on April 4th at 23 Pisces. It had reached 6 Aries last month only to turn backward into the sign of dreaming. It was necessary to see if our head and hearts were in alignment. Whatever insights we gained are presaging a major direction shift in June when Uranus squares Pluto. Once the communication planet streaks back into Aries on the 17th, we will see how our walkabout served us. After this, the energy shifts from thinking and talking to doing and being.
Pluto, our power transformation planet, turns retrograde on April 10th. Generally, Pluto stations will bring up a soul crisis that wants to be addressed over the next six months. Depending on your template (birth chart), it can either mean a closer look at power and authority or a situation that reveals our own inner discrepancies. Pluto is concerned with our ultimate soul evolution so he may override the desires of the small ego self who doesn’t want to deal with change. Big things happen on Pluto stations and while we all experience it, those more likely to feel the intensity are those with personal planets at 8 -9 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn.
A few days later, Mars, the planet of sexuality and desire as well as taking action, turns direct on April 13th. The planet of action and the masculine identity has been retrograde since Jan 23rd so in some cases, we may have gotten confused or lost our mojo or even had men leave our lives. This month, your energy and motivation returns as well as the possible missing gent. On a mundane level, there will be greater escalation of aggression and continued debates regarding health care, veteran’s and worker’s rights, and police and the improper use of force.
While it may seem that there is no rest for the weary, on April 20th, the Sun luxuriates into Taurus, allowing us time to slow down and enjoy the bounties of nature. And on April 29th and 30th when the Sun touches the degree of last month’s Jupiter Pluto trine aspect of wealth, you may see the fruits of your labors revealed (as in money or increased resources).
Enjoy this month end respite and reward because it is probably the only lull in the storm of the next coming months of Uranus square Pluto paradigm shifting!
You had to look deep inside to see if your ego needs matched the desires of your soul. The temporary slowdown allowed you to get to your real truth and gain the courage to pursue those larger goals. Some parts of your career life are ending and you will note this around the 10th. This work is part of your past and you will find yourself easing out of this chapter over the next six months. You’re definitely on a health kick and reenergized to get your body in tip-top shape. You are regaining confidence in your looks and your talents so enjoy the benefits that come later in the month.
Mercury retrograde may have affected some of your friendships and/or professional goals. Those which don’t fit the real you may have been renegotiated. Despite your stable appearance, you actually rather love a challenge and your developing spiritual ideology provides you with a strong support system. Developments abroad or with studying may take a turn; see what comes up around the 10th. Even if it has some legal implications, you have all summer long to work out the details. Meanwhile, you are looking your best and this may be due to renewed self-confidence as well as the presence of a vital individual who is very interested in your creative and romantic potential.
Does your current work situation support your long-term goals? That was the question posed during last month’s Mercury retrograde and now you can start to craft ways that place them into alignment. And while the action focus is outward, the evolutionary focus is definitely inward. You are deepening a relationship committment, even or perhaps because of a situation that will arise this month that will call for being “all in”. Lots of activity at home with the energy best-used to organize your environment efficiently. Do take some time out for meditation and visioning as later in the month, the universe can help you manifest solid long-term growth and security.
Have your changing beliefs affected your choice of career? The astrology suggests that is likely to be true. You are one of the signs most likely to change your work and professional identity over the next five years as Uranus, the planet of innovation, passes through your destiny house. Meanwhile, you may still need to address relationship issues. While you may want to be taken care of, you do require an equal partnership and the best way to get that is to be the person you most want to date. You are moved to write or connect in your local environment and the cosmos is willing to oblige by allowing you to develop new solid friendships that can help build your future.
You have been called to places afar and to readjust your goals to include a more international perspective. Make sure that inner securities don’t cloud your prospects. You are required to reorganize your residential space right now and it will take the next six months to sort out how you want to live your life. Finally, money is no longer an issue and you will find your bank account filling up. Allow yourself to be seen as there are prominent and quite possibly wealthy individuals who can promote you and support your long-term goals.
You are seeking a greater independence in relationships, while still retaining the connection. You may tend to try to control others, but it is best that you use that laser like perception to cut through your own fears of committment. You are in a long-term cycle of accessing your powers of creation and this can play out in actual artistic endeavors, sexual encounters and/or pregnancy. You may have felt even more OCD than usual when Mars was retrograde these last few months, but now that he has moved forward you feel more directed and one-pointed. Overseas opportunities are your bounty.
You would like a dynamic partnership but you had to get a few things in order first. Is your life and home set up for an intimate relationship? You can sometimes get caught up in daydreaming at the expense of being present for another. You are awakened from your slumber by yet another family crisis that needs your attention and authority. Ironically, this can allow you to separate once and for all from the past. Be emotionally courageous and see the results appear in the form of a deeper connection to a sexual partner.
You are a serious romantic but you also need your space. Negotiating the two is what has occupied your mind over the last month. Deep intimacy is possible as long as you take care of the day to day details of your life. The larger issue is that your mind is going through a total regeneration and you are seeking out new friends and goals that serve the world. You can find solace in the arms of someone who knows your value and is able to reflect back to you your beauty and sensuality in safe and tantalizing ways.
A dynamic partnership is on offer but you needed the last few weeks to get your literal and figurative home in order. This presages a long-term cycle around sex and romance. You have been hard at work developing a marketable skill set and now you are seeing the results of your endeavors. A highly-placed individual may be on hand to assist you to the next level. This month you will be in high demand so be discriminating in the offers you choose to accept. Meanwhile, take care of the beautiful body of yours and enjoy the benefits of rest and relaxation.
Where do you want to live? It seems you’ve already taken the steps to move on, but spent the last few weeks reminiscing about the past and your childhood. Once Mercury re-enters Aries on the 17th, you will move confidently into your new space. You’ve been through a lot of changes since 2008 and events mid-month will show you the next leg of the journey. Some of the adventure includes trips or connections abroad. Your creativity is very high right now and some of your ideas have solid money-making potential. See what feels right, particularly around the end of the month.
You have some great ideas but you want to make sure they can make you coin. Follow through with those that honor your unique vision because your money comes from breaking past the status quo. You are in a long-term cycle of soul growth and purging lifetimes so be patient with yourself. Of all the signs, yours is the one most likely to experience the return of an ex or recently departed lover. Create an environment of luxury and sensuality and you will enjoy the rewards of your courageous soul-searching.
Innovation becomes you and also increases your bank account. As the decade unfolds, more and more people are going to understand and appreciate your unique value. Some of your goals are shifting and you may notice that events around the 10th help you decide which connections are worth investing in. Like Aquarius, there is a renewed interest from an ex-lover or the emergence of a new energetic partner. Enjoy the comforts of close to home or a walk in nature to bring out your inner siren.
