tuesday april 2nd-
mars in gemini semisextiles uranus in taurus at 12:29am, linking the will and drive with the rebel and revolutionary! mars in gemini is ready to speak up and express himself and uranus in taurus is ready to embrace change and do something wild and new! over the next 2 days mars triggers both uranus and chiron in harmonious ways- bringing opportunities for awakening and healing in the masculine within (animus for women or the masculine identity for men), in relationships with men in our lives and in our patterns we play out in partnerships of all kinds. be open to shift!
true nodes (north node in cancer/south node in capricorn) square eris in aries at 2:36am- bringing us to a pivotal point of choice on our path of destiny and karma! we can keep on doing the same old karmic past OR we can grow and move into new uncharted territory. the old patriarchal paradigm of power, control, dominance and self focus is not going to work anymore. with the north node in cancer the Divine Mother and the Divine Feminine heart, compassion and care need to lead the way (and both men and women can embody these qualities). (eris squared the mean nodes on 3/20 and the true nodes today- making for a 2 week period of time where this astrology is in effect)
at 2:36am mercury cojoins neptune at 17’08 pisces, completing the 3rd and final conjunction with neptune that has been a signature of mercury’s Underworld journey (the 1st was 2/18 and the 2nd on 3/24). mercury/neptune links the linear logical mind with the intuitive, imaginative planet. the energy right now can be deeply psychic, mystical, imaginative, intuitive and creative. this is a great time study the occult and the mysteries and open up to hearing messages from Source! yet the shadow of this aspect is that it can be really hard to discern fact from fantasy and Truth from illusion. it’s easy to deceive ourselves, deceive others and believe our own lies! this is the last of 3 mercury/neptune conjunction so track what you have been sitting with and trying to discern clearly about over the last 1 1/2 months. be discerning and be willing to question what is on the surface right now. don’t just pay attention to words- pay attention to actions. also pay attention to your dreams, fantasies and illusions. be willing to pull back the veil and see yourself, others and the world around you more clearly.
venus parallels neptune at 3:46am, bringing intimations of the upcoming venus/neptune conjunction that is exact on 4/9. from now until then we have a super aspect between the lower heart and Higher Heart- with both in the sign of Divine Love, compassion, altruism and idealism. venus/neptune is dreamy and romantic but without good boundaries and healthy grounding they can both float off the planet. see the good in everything and everyone and balance that with embodiment and shadow work for best results ;)
venus in pisces semisquares pluto in capricorn at 4:46am and then sesquiquadrates the north node in cancer at 1:06pm, triggering the pluto/true south node conjunction that is exact in 2 days. big time old karmic patterns and shadow can come in relationships and finances right now. venus in pisces wants to see the Light- but pluto on the south node is exposing some very intense and toxic shadow. purging and releasing the past is key- so do not spiritually bypass!
venus in pisces semisquares eris in aries at 2:34pm, activating the pluto/eris square that is not exact until january 2020 but is very activated this month with the nodes of the moon. pluto/eris come in to shake things up and wake us up! all that is out of integrity can come to Light! with venus involved the focus is on relationships and where we have been wearing rose colored glasses, putting people on pedestals or projecting onto others. being willing to live in the Heart while still seeing others clearly- not just seeing the potential in them- is key.
wednesday april 3rd-
vesta moves out of pisces and into aries at 8:26am, shifting the Priestess asteroid Goddess from the omega point (29 pisces) to the alpha point (1 aries)- crossing over the world axis and starting a new cycle through the wheel of the year! vesta in aries is the warrior Goddess- committed to activism, taking a stand and taking action for what she believes in. we can access her fiery, independent energy in the coming journey through aries. just be aware she can be so uber independent that she is not relational at all. balance is key.
mars in gemini sextiles chiron in aries at 8:39pm, harmoniously aligning the will and drive with the Wounded Healer. this is lovely for healing around the masculine- our relationship with men and our own internal masculine. healing around our use of will, drive, anger, aggression, rage, control, ego, sexual energy and passion is possible right now. if we block/stuff these energies OR if we overexpress them in reactive or addictive ways- opportunities to heal and bring things into balance are present right now. mars is in gemini so the path to healing is communication- with others, with a therapist, with yourself. speak the Truth and hear the Truth and the Truth can set you free!
thursday april 4th-
mercury parallels neptune at 7:05am, echoing the mercury/neptune conjunction by degree that happened on 4/2- extending that aspect to last throughout mid week. intuition, imagination, fantasy, fear and illusion can all be strong right now! how to discern what is real from what is unreal? that takes a lot of finesse right now. be discerning, ask questions and do grounding meditation to stay connected to the earth. pay attention to where things are not what they seem. ask questions.
pluto cojoins the true south node 23’03 capricorn at 12:17pm (mean node conjunction was 3/28)- making for the first of the karmic south node conjunctions of the year (saturn will be next starting in may). with the Lord of the Underworld on the karmic south node- we have some big karma and shadow being unearthed personally, politically and collectively. anything that holds us back from our evolution and growth can be up for us to face right now. it is time to face our dogma, rigidity, power/control patterns, fear, limitation, restriction and karmic bondage. our willingness to face our own shadows is our super power right now. pluto is also the great transformer and there can be very transformational things happening in our lives right now. death/endings give way to rebirth/new beginnings. don’t be so busy holding onto the past that you miss out on what is trying to come into your life!
friday april 5th-
the new moon in aries is exact at 4:12am PDT, commencing a new lunar cycle focused on agency, taking action, initiation and independence! the sun/moon conjunction is square saturn, pluto and the nodes- activating the capricorn confluence in a HUGE way. where aries is a new cycle wants to unfold but where capricorn is we have to let go of something toxic, stagnant or stuck needs to be let go of first. for more info on this new moon check the LUNAR GATE call, LUNAR HOROSCOPES and LUNAR INSIGHT posted a few days before the new moon is exact.
juno in gemini quincunxes the south node in capricorn at 11:05am and pluto quincunxes juno at 10:52pm, bringing tension between the asteroid Goddess of partnership and marriage and the Lord of the Underworld on the karmic south node. some big things can be uncovered in relationships, partnerships and commitments of all kinds. juno in gemini wants things to be light and care free- but pluto on the south node has depth and massive intensity. power/control dynamics in relationships and partnerships can be uncovered or exacerbated. jealousy, possessiveness and shadow in relationships needs to be faced, worked through and/or the partnerships released. the focus right now is on RELEASING karma and ending karmic patterns- not creating them or sustaining them.
saturday april 6th-
uranus in taurus semisextiles vesta in aries at 6:01pm, linking the rebel and revolutionary with the Priestess asteroid Goddess of devotion and focus. this is a time to focus on our evolution and be devoted to change! uranus in taurus is helping to awaken the feminine and change our values so they are more in alignment with abundance and earth consciousness. vesta in aries is the warrior Goddess ready to take a stand for what she believes in. use this energy to activate and motivate yourself to embrace and BE the change!
sunday april 7th-
juno in gemini sextiles eris in aries at 12:14am, linking the asteroid Goddess of partnership and marriage with the Warrior Goddess of Chaos and upheaval! juno has been triggering the pluto/eris/nodal T square the last couple of days- bringing some wake up/shake up and breakdown/breakthrough energies into relationships of all kinds (marriage, romantic, business, financial partnerships and more). juno/eris is a harmonious aspect- and the warrior Goddess is supporting us in seeing relationships clearly and committing to that which is good for us and letting go of that which is not.
mercury in pisces sextiles saturn in capricorn at 2:17am, linking the mind and intellect with planet of mastery and maturity. mercury is direct now but he is still in back end shadow until 4/20- so we are still retracing mercury’s review/revise the past steps that have been going on since mid february. mercury/saturn asks us to get real. we can see the potential (mercury in pisces) but it has to be aligned with reality and what is possible. having serious conversations about what is and what isn’t is key right now. taking dreams and visions and doing the hard work of manifestation and embodiment is the path to success!
the sun in aries semisextiles neptune in pisces at 3:10am, linking the conscious self and ego with the planet of mysticism and romance. sun/neptune can be great for mysticism, intuition, creativity and compassion. with the sun in yang, fiery aries and neptune in yin, watery pisces- we can link alpha and omega, masculine and feminine- in powerful ways. when you take action today do it from the space of the Higher Heart.
mars in gemini sesquiquadrates saturn in capricorn at 5:18pm, creating tension between the will and drive and the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. mars in gemini wants to go-go-go! he likes freedom and space and does not like to be bound. saturn in capricorn is all about bondage, responsibility, accountability and integrity. saturn is telling mars to grow up. we can use this energy for mastery and taking action or communicating from this place of awareness of what is being set into motion can be supported today. but this is a tense aspect so there can also be frustration and irritation at being held back or depression and lethargy that makes it hard to get started. this, too, shall pass.
