tuesday april 24th-
venus moves out of taurus and into gemini at 9:40am, shifting the Goddess of Love and Beauty from earth to air, body to mind, stability/security focus to movement/freedom focus. venus in gemini values freedom and space in relationships. she likes to flit about like a butterfly- being social and flirtatious with others. this is great for enjoying talks with others, sharing intellectual pursuits and being free! just watch out for the shadow side of venus in gemini: being superficial, noncommittal and/or bored in relationship.
at 5:41pm venus in gemini sextiles chiron in aries, making for the 2nd aspect (and the 1st major one as the previous aspect was a semisextile) to chiron in his new home sign. venus/chiron is lovely for heart healing and healing in relationship. we are being supported in sharing our hearts, feelings, wounds and pain honestly and truthfully with others. from this space intimacy can open up and deepen.
at 6:07pm retrograde saturn in capricorn quincunxes ceres in leo in for the 2nd of 3 times. i have been writing about the Underworld journey of ceres for months now. we have a potent alignment of ceres with the north node and both saturn and pluto are quincunxing them both. massive testing, karmic situations and Underworld journeys going on with Mother Earth, women, women’s health, fertility, mothers and children and more. the ultimate aim of ceres on the north node is to come into better relationship with the Mother- Mother Earth, our feminine side within and more. this is about healthy self-love and self-care as much as it is about healthy care of the planet, of women and children, of the environment and more. since this whole journey began i have seen so many situations of women being diagnosed with cancer, with women having fertility issues, with people’s mother’s passing or going through major health issues and more. the women on the planet are expressing the pain and grief of Mother Earth right now. the toxins in the air, water and food are creating massive global environmental concerns. years ago i had a dream where a woman who was bare chested had many tumors in her breasts. she said to her friend ‘it’s genetic’. but i looked around and could see the invisible toxins in the air, the water, the food- from cloud seeding toxins, to fukushima radiation, to gmo’s in the food and more. no one could see these toxins and yet they were infiltrating the human system and causing imbalance and health issues. in the dream i knew that a clean diet, eating lots of fruits and veggies and taking herbs that help to detox (i recommend organic broken cell chlorella and my community mushroom tincture for starters) would help people stay healthy. i share this dream so that it may help you. saturn/ceres is about getting real about what is not working and what karmic circumstances are unfolding in home/family situations, with women and children, with Mother Earth and more. think back to 2/22 when saturn first quincunxes ceres. this ceres portal runs from end of november till start of june. we need to be willing to question the things we have always done, the structures and routines and dogmas we have been force fed. this is a time to come into better relationship with our intuition and healthy sense of self. our bodies know what is right for us. our souls and spirits know. pay attention!
wednesday april 25th-
at 2:28pm mercury squares retrograde saturn in capricorn for the 3rd and final time. mercury/saturn creates tension and friction between the mind and intellect and the planet of mastery, integrity and karma. mercury in aries is raring to go. he wants to say what he thinks and he wants to do what he wants to do- no holds barred! yet saturn square mercury demands we think before we speak and act. mastery and maturity come when we can reign it in and not just act in haste or speak reactively. there are breaks being put on our desires, will and drive. learning how to creatively work within limitations is key! if you feel down or depressed today know that this too shall pass. take time to face what is up for you- as depression usually takes us down and in when we are avoiding looking at foundations things in our lives that need facing and addressing. since this is the last of 3 mercury/saturn squares- this can be the final get real aspect that is demanding we see reality on it’s own terms, take accountability for our part in creating it and then clearly seeing what needs to be done to navigate the path forward. pay attention.
uranus in aries semisextiles juno in pisces at 6:03pm, linking the rebel and revolutionary with the asteroid Goddess of partnership and marriage. over the next few days uranus and chiron both link with juno- as she transitions from 29 pisces to 0 aries just like chiron did on april 17th. juno has to do with all manner of relationships- yes intimate and marriage for sure but also business partnership, financial partnerships and more. she also has to do with our commitment to ourselves and to our path of evolution. juno linking with uranus today is helping us wake up and liberate ourselves from unhealthy dynamics, relationships and partnerships that don’t serve. she is also helping existing relationships that can still grow and evolve with us to shift into new dimensions. change is in the air in partnership dynamics! but we have to be willing to face our pain and wounds that have run us and created the unhealthy relationship dynamics first and foremost (more on that later in this forecast when i talk about chiron conjunct juno)
mercury in aries trines ceres in leo at 11:05pm, bringing important insights, information and communications about home, family, women’s health, Mother Earth and what we need for well being, safety and security. pay attention to the messages incoming.
thursday april 26th-
at 4:00am mars cojoins just stationed retrograde pluto at 21’17 capricorn, aligning the lower will and Higher Will in powerful and irreversible ways! mars/pluto is great for surrendering the lower will to the Higher Will. because in the last few days mars has been triggering the jupiter/pluto sextile we have had major access to jupiter and pluto’s power of transformation, evolution, purification and empowerment. mars/pluto is great for death and rebirth- letting go of the old so that the new can come in. major turning points can happen right now. right use of will, drive and desire energy is key to setting new cycles into motion.
friday april 27th-
mercury in aries trines the north node in leo for the 3rd and final time at 1:17pm, aligning the planet of intellect and communication with the evolutionary north node of growth and destiny. communications, information or connections happening right now are important- pay attention! mercury trined the north node a total of 3 times (the last one is today) due to his retrograde journey. something is coming full circle. it’s an important day today- pay attention!
saturday april 28th-
juno moves out of pisces and into aries at 12:44am, shifting the Goddess of partnership and marriage from omega point to alpha point, from the end of the end to the beginning of the beginning. major cycles are ending in relationships right now. major new cycles are being seeded as well. be conscious of how you navigate your endings and new beginnings- as how you set things into motion or how you do not complete things from the past will inform this next cycle. some relationships can be ending for good- others can be evolving to the next level of potential. either way- change is in the air!
sunday april 29th-
at 3:04am the sun in taurus trines retrograde saturn in capricorn, aligning the conscious self and ego with the planet of self mastery, maturity and karma. sun/saturn is great for being responsible, accountable, disciplined and grounded. with taurus and capricorn involved our work, professional standing and financial situation are very much supported by the earth energy present right now. this is a time to be steady and patient as we work to build something of significance in our lives. focusing on what is most important and putting all our energy into that is key right now!
chiron cojoins juno at 0’38 aries at 8:52am, aligning the Wounded Healer planetoid with the asteroid Goddess of partnership, marriage and commitment. chiron is the Wounded Healer- so he both triggers our deepest wounds and pain AND he shows us the path towards healing them. when you combine chiron with a relationship asteroid we get the wounding and healing energy permeating our relationships and commitments with others. we have major opportunity this week to see old patterns clearly- so that we can see where they Source from as well as see what needs to happen so things can fully heal or fully end. as this conjunction occurs at the aries point- the alpha point and the beginning of the beginning- we can truly set into motion massive new beginnings in our relationships, in our relationship trajectories and in the way we do partnerships. of course member that new beginnings always occur after major endings have occurred. being willing to let go of that which does not help us grow is key to moving into the new cycle without carrying forward the baggage and karma of the past.
venus in gemini sesquiquadrates retrograde pluto in capricorn at 1:38pm, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and beauty and the Lord of the Underworld! venus/pluto brings us into the depths and takes us through massive transformation by way of endings, loss, death and/or facing our deepest fears and obsessions around Love and partnership. facing our jealousy, possessiveness, anger, rage and need to be in control is key. equally so facing our fear of the depths, our tendency to stay light and non-committal, and our desire to move on quickly before things get deep and penetrate our soul. facing any shadows that arises in regards to the depths or the surface is key today! luckily we have a new mo on in scorpio helping us do just that!
the full moon at 9’39 scorpio is exact at 5:58pm PDT- marking the midway point of the current lunar cycle we are in that began with the new moon conjunct uranus in aries on april 15th. that new moon set MAJOR new things into motion- and this full moon brings to Light what is holding us back from moving forward and onward in life. the taurus/scorpio axis is an axis of holding on and letting go. with both lunations being mars ruled- and with mars just past his conjunct with pluto and trigger of jupiter/pluto- we have huge energies for change, transformation, evolution and empowerment at hand. it’s up to us to use them wisely! this full moon is sextile saturn (and the sun is trine saturn too)- showing us that steadiness, endurance, patience and long term focus will be rewarded. for more information on this lunation check the lunar insight posted a few days to a week before the full moon is exact. (p.s. this full moon is lunar beltane! solar beltane is coming up on 5/5 and my next solar gates call will be released soon! if you have not signed up for this call you can do so by clicking ‘the 8 solar gates’ in the toolbar or by clicking here- https://www.divineharmony.org/the8solargates
have a blessed week…
