venus in pisces squares ceres in gemini at 1:45pm, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. venus in pisces loves to sacrifice for others and is uber compassionate- yet in tense square to ceres we can find ourselves overdoing this self sacrifice at the expense of our own health and wellbeing. with ceres in gemini communication can get nebulous, confusing and/or escapist. all week the ceres/neptune square is building (exact end of the week on sunday) and venus triggers it today through wednesday. as ceres is involved there can be a focus on families, children, home, parents and the lack of or excess of nurturing, nourishment and care. boundaries are important with neptune/pisces placements- so tuning into where these need to be strengthened OR where walls need to be softened is important this week!
tuesday april 26th-
at 1:26pm venus in pisces sextiles the mean north node in taurus, linking the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the node of destiny in the sign of venus. lovely things can be coming in today in the realm of relationship, beauty, abundance and the bridging of Spirit and body. it’s a lovely time to be with people of like mind and like heart- and share experiences, ideas and emotions with each other. give thanks for the Goddess in your life! if you cannot see it- take a look and find it. what you seek, see and pay attention to grows ;)
standstill pluto in capricorn (who stations retrograde on friday) squares pallas athena in aries at 8:14pm, creating tension between the Lord of the Underworld and the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess. this can unearth shadow and power control dynamics in political relationships, career/work relationships, with authority figures and higher ups. pallas likes to strategize but pluto can undermine things or weave in some intense threads into matters pertaining to war, government, career and more. positively this can be great for getting to the bottom of things via research, investigation, deep inner work and shadow work. just watch out for obsession, power trips and misuse of the intellect.
at 10:11pm mercury in taurus sextiles jupiter in pisces, linking the mind and intellect with the planet of expansion and abundance. this is a great day for travel, learning, teaching and mind expansion! spiritual, mystical and psychic energies are strong and with the earthy taurus energy we are supported in grounding the inspiration or spiritual awareness that comes in so that we can bring it all the way through. jupiter gifts us with visions of Spirit while mercury gifts us with the capacity to embody it <3
wednesday april 27th-
i HIGHLY recommend waking early this morning to see moon/venus/jupiter in the early morning sky before the sun rises. it will be a sight to see! you can also see mars and saturn- all within 33 degrees of each other!!!
at 9:05am mars in pisces semisquares eris in aries, creating tension between the will and drive with the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. from today through tomorrow mars triggers the pluto/eris square- bringing intensity and possible power struggles with others. this is a time to take action from a place of awareness and compassion- not passive aggression or dishonesty. eris is revealing what is in the shadow but mars in pisces prefers to see the good only or check out so using the energy wisely is key.
at 12:11pm venus cojoins neptune at 24’28 pisces, aligning the lower heart with the Higher heart in beautiful ways. when personal love joins with Divine Love the capacity for off the charts compassion, agape, altruism, forgiveness and kindness is present. this can be uber romantic, idealistic, creative, mystical, artistic and psychic. we just want to make sure we are grounded with good boundaries- as it’s easy to project all our Light onto others and miss their shadow. it’s also easy to see the potential but that potential may not be realized for 10 more years or 10 more lifetimes. so staying in the present and living with an open heart with healthy boundaries is key. over the next 3 days venus triggers the jupiter/neptune conjunction from april 12th- bringing a triple alignment between the lower and Higher Hearts (venus/neptune), the two spiritual planets (jupiter/neptune) and the two benefices (venus/jupiter). super auspicious energy is available to tap into right now! make use of it <3
thursday april 28th-
at 5:04am mercury in taurus trines pluto in capricorn whom is about to station retrograde tomorrow and head more deeply into the Underworld that he governs! mercury/pluto aligns the winged messenger with the Lord of the Underworld. mercury is one of the few beings who can enter into the Underworld and come back out. as such he is called psychopomp and guide to the souls. mercury/pluto is excellent for therapy, shadow work, inner work, research and investigation- anything that supports diving deep and getting to the core truth of things. we have the capacity to get to the bottom of things right now- and see what is hidden within and without. communication can get deep or possibly intense- particularly anything relating to finances, career or professional standing. be willing to see what is and face the shadow for best results!
ceres in gemini quincunxes the mean south node in scorpio at 5:26am, creating tension between the Great Mother asteroid Goddess and the karmic south node of the past. from today through sunday ceres triggers the eris/south node quincunx that was exact a couple weeks ago. this can bring up things in home/family situations and dynamics that need to be addressed- present or from the past. the south node in scorpio is super intense and emotional, but ceres in gemini is quite detached. we want a good balance between detachment and depth- otherwise one is being used to override the other. balance is key!
at 9:42am the sun in taurus semisquares ceres in gemini, creating a minor tense aspect between body and mind, our slow stable selves and our need for movement and change. the sun triggers ceres/neptune today through tomorrow- and truly NEPTUNE SQUARE CERES is a major theme of the week. so make sure you are taking off the rose colored glasses so you see clearly in matters pertaining to home, family, parents, children, nurturing and nourishment this week!
mercury in taurus semisquares chiron in aries at 11:39am, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the Wounded Healer. communication can be intense and activate old wounds today. pay attention to your dreams upon waking for important insights into your own Unconscious. what needs to be said? what needs to be heard? where is there healing that needs to happen before awareness can expand to see the full picture and the Truth?
friday april 29th-
at 11:36am pluto stations retrograde at 28’35 capricorn, bringing the Lord of the Underworld to a standstill in the sky. there’s a call right now to relate to our will, power, drive and ego energies from a different place. pluto stationary can confront us with areas of life that feel out of control- and if we clamp down and try to control them even more it can get even more intense. using this energy to dive down and into our psyches and confront shadow dynamics around power and control (do we give away, do we lord it over others) is the best use of the excavation energy right now. steer clear of power/control dynamics with others and instead focus on being empowered and having control over your lower self! we currently have mercury triggering pluto while he is at a standstill (yesterday to today)- so there can be a lot coming up and out in information, communication, media and interactions with others. there is much intensity present but also deep opportunities for transformation and evolution. surrender your ego self to your Higher Self for best results!
the sun in taurus semisquares neptune in pisces at 2:07pm, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the planet that dissolves ego boundaries. sun/neptune can be dreamy, magical, idealistic, spiritual and compassionate. but neptune can also wear down the boundaries of self and make one too wide open or too out to lunch to see or deal with reality. finding balance between body (sun in embodied taurus) and spirit/soul (neptune in pisces) so that one foot is in both worlds is key.
at 3:23pm mercury moves out of taurus and into gemini, shifting the mind and intellect from earth to air, body to mind, yin to yang. mercury rules gemini and is very well placed here. he is extra curious, communicative and fun loving! just watch out for the shadow of mercury in gemini- only living on the surface and avoiding the depths as well as not being completely honest and above board in your communications. today mercury transits the alpha star in the pleiades- alcyone- but the transit of the entire pleiades cluster spans about a week. pay attention to cosmic downloads, dreams and intuitions coming in from the 7 sisters!
saturday april 30th-
pallas athena moves from 29 aries to the 1st degree of taurus at 1:47am, shifting the Wisdom and Warrior goddess from the sign of war and action to a sign of peace and stability. may this shift help soften things in eastern europe as well as in our own lives. just in time for the solar eclipse in taurus later today! pallas in taurus is able to figure things out and see the bigger picture by slowing down, rooting and grounding. this is not a placement of rushing to find the answers but a placement of slowing down to find that you had them within ;)
the new moon/SOLAR ECLIPSE at 10’28 taurus is exact at 1:28pm PDT, commencing a new lunar cycle and initiating us into the eclipse portal! this new moon solar eclipse is conjunct uranus at 14’32 taurus- heading to the precise mid fixed degree that is solar beltane- with the beltane portal opening up from tonight (calendar beltane runs from sun down 4/30 to sunrise 5/1) to 5/5 for solar beltane, and all the way to 5/15 for lunar beltane with the total lunar eclipse in scorpio (the full moon in scorpio is always lunar beltane). we have an exceptionally large Beltane Portal this year- and it is literally bookended by eclipses- making it potent and more intense.
my Solar Gate Call for solar beltane will be up by 5/2 and my Lunar Gate Call/Lunar Insight/Lunar Horoscopes for the new moon/eclipse in taurus will be up by 4/27 (gate call/insight) and 4/30 (horoscopes). these are membership content. to sign up to be a member click here- https://divineharmony.com/become-a-member/
i wrote an article about uranus transiting the solar beltane degree and amplifying the winds of change as we head to the uranus/north node conjunction end of july! if you did not read that article you can do so here- https://divineharmony.com/astrology-blog/moving-from-fixed-to-mutable-the-changing-of-the-times/
with this solar eclipse on the north node conjunct uranus- we will see a MAJOR uptick in the energies of change, revolution and rebellion. mark my words! with the new moon/eclipse semisquare the triple conjunction of venus/jupiter/neptune (exact between 4/27-30) we want to be aware of our ideals and the difference between making them real, acting on them vs keeping them as pie in the sky ideals that are illusions or pipe dreams. we have to be willing to put in the work to bring heaven down to earth and make our dreams a reality. luckily the new moon eclipse is sextile mars in pisces- reminding us that our ego and will needs to be in service of Spirit, not the other way around. we can set things into motion right now that are good for us but also good for humanity, contributing to the Greater Good. for more on this powerful eclipse check the lunar insight i post a few days before the new moon eclipse as well as the lunar gate call and lunar horoscopes.
venus cojoins jupiter 27’57 pisces, linking the lesser and Greater Benefics in amazing ways!!! venus is the Goddess of Love and Beauty and jupiter is the planet of expansion, abundance and growth. they were both seen as ‘beneficial’ by the ancients because when they are visible they are the brightest planets (outside of the luminaries- the sun and the moon). as such they are seen as ‘translating a lot of Light’ to planet earth when they are visible- and when they are invisible they are bringing Great Light to the Underworld/shadows. venus conjunct jupiter in pisces brings a MASSIVE ACTIVATION of the Higher Heart energies of compassion, altruism, intuition and inspiration. this is an incredibly blessed conjunction and wherever pisces falls in your chart great gifts and openings are incoming (listen to weekly/monthly horoscopes for more info). this amazing conjunction comes on the day of the New Moon/Solar Eclipse as well- so use this lunar cycle wisely.
sunday may 1st-

at 3:37am venus in pisces sextiles now retrograde pluto in capricorn (he stationed 4/29), aligning the Goddess of Love and beauty with the Lord of the Underworld. venus/pluto can be deep and passionate. we are willing to get more intimate and vulnerable with ourselves and others. it’s time to dive into the deep end of the pool! intensity in Love and money situations is possible but pluto’s harmonious alignment is helping us use that intensity as a means for transformation. a rock becomes a diamond but undergoing intense pressure! in our self-worth, self-Love, values, finances and relationships- we can transform if we are willing to go deep right now!
at 8:15am ceres in gemini sextiles eris in aries, linking the Great Mother asteroid Goddess with the Activist and Warrior Goddess! this is wonderful for taking action based on home/family situations. you can see what needs to be done and you are ready to do it! this is also exceptional for taking a stand for those who cannot stand up for themselves – children, the elderly, the environment, animals and more. eris is willing to fight for what she believes in and ceres is a Mother Goddess energy who will protect her young and those who need safety. it’s a powerful energy to tap into today! yet we also have neptune square ceres- adding another layer to the energies present…
neptune in pisces squares ceres in gemini at 11:46am, creating tension and friction between the planet of idealism, illusion and confusion and the Great Mother asteroid Goddess of nurturing, family and the environment. there can be deep confusion around Truth right now and what is reality. in home/family situations there can be a dissolution energy playing out with foundations crumbling. this can be seen in the environment too or in other environmental situations involving water or air. it’s hard to see what is really going on behind the scenes- and our tendencies to project all our fears or fantasies onto people/situations can exacerbate the confusing energy right now. this is not the best time to make life altering decisions as not all is clear at the moment. taking time to meditate, pay attention to dreams, retreat and reflect are the best use of this astrology right now.
have a blessed week…
