monday april 8th-
jupiter in sagittarius opposes juno in gemini at 3:22pm, creating tension between the planet of expansion and excess and the asteroid Goddess of partnership and marriage. Jupiter and Juno are husband and wife in roman mythology (zeus and Hera are their greek names). they are a married couple but their relationship had a lot of strife as Jupiter was constantly cheating on Juno with goddesses and mortal women. Since 3/23 Juno has been in the midst of very intense aspects- square Neptune, quincunx Saturn/pluto/the south node and sextile eris. Lots of activation playing out in relationships of all kinds- marriage, romantic, financial, business and more. Jupiter/juno can put the spotlight on relationships and where the balance of freedom and commitment is. this is not a time to be so independent we cannot think of others but it’s also not a time to over focus on others at the expense of ourselves. balance is key.
at 9:36pm ceres stations retrograde at 14’16 sagittarius, bringing the Great Mother asteroid Goddess to a standstill in the sky. Ceres in sadge nurtures/feels nurtured when given freedom, space and a large pasture to roam. ceres values travel, learning, teaching, exploring and expanding. Yet her station retrograde means we are asked to explore/expand WITHIN. This is not so much a time to travel or go outside for knowledge as it is a time to TURN WITHIN. Ceres stations on the Great Attractor- a black hole that is the Mother Matrix for billions of galaxies ours included. To have ceres- the Great Mother- station on the GA which is like the Mother matrix we have some MASSIVE creatrix/Great Goddess energy accessible. Pay attention to downloads, information incoming, inner journeys and insights arising. This station is profound- use it wisely.
saturn in capricorn squares retrograde pallas in libra at 9:37pm, creating tension between the Lord of Karma and Father of Time and the Wisdom and Warrior asteroid Goddess. Pallas is retrograde and is triggering the Capricorn confluence right now. Tension between the old established order and what is expected is at odds with our desire to be relational, keep the peace and work towards balance. Power/control dynamics can be activated in relationships, politically and otherwise. Navigating with wisdom and awareness is key.
tuesday april 9th-
chiron cojoins vesta at 2’53 aries at 10:31am, aligning the Wounded Healer with the Priestess asteroid Goddess. At best this is about devotion to healing- particularly around the masculine energies, will, drive, ego, anger and rage. The shadow of this can be big wounds coming up to block our healing with a need to be able to see what is tripping us up. If we are deeply committed to our growth and evolution this aspect can support us in deep shadow work, reclaiming our passion and fire, and expressing our anger in sacred and healing ways.
venus in pisces semisquares uranus in taurus at 10:38am, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the rebel, revolutionary and Great Awakener. Sudden and unexpected shifts in relationships, finances, our values and more can arise right now. Venus sees through the eyes of idealism and positivity- Uranus comes in to wake us up by shaking us up. Seeing our attachments- particularly to that which is toxic, stagnant or stuck in our lives is important right now.
at 6:25pm mercury in pisces trines the north node in cancer, aligning the mind and intellect with node of destiny and evolution. important communications, information, connections and realizations can be incoming. with both bodies in water signs pay attention to your intuition, dreams, fantasies, synchronicity and psychic perception. emotions flowing today can be very healing!
venus cojoins neptune at 17’24 pisces at 11:13pm, 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. (venus will trigger the saturn/neptune sextile from now until 4/12 which is a great time for taking our dreams and doing the work to bring them into reality)
wednesday april 10th-
the sun in aries squares saturn in capricorn at 1:47am, creating tension and friction between the conscious self and ego and the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. from now until the 13th the sun triggers the entire capricorn confluence (saturn/pluto/south node) as well as eris and the approaching pluto/eris square. watch out for intensity, power struggles and explosive energies right now! the sun in aries wants FREEDOM and the capricorn confluence wants control. what of the past is holding you back? where do you need to detox, release and complete karmic patterns you may have been playing out for lifetimes??? this is the work right now. whatever is being stirred in your life the next few days- pay attention to where the growth edge is for you and then walk past it!
jupiter stations retrograde at 24’21 sagittarius at 10:01am, bringing the Greater Benefic to a standstill in the sky. all jupiterian matters are in focus- travel, expansion, growth, success, teaching, learning, and more. jupiter is heading into the underworld so we are supported in taking his expansive energy down and in. jupiter in his own sign of sagittarius can be uber confident and fun loving but he can also overdo things and be excessive, self righteous and pompous. reigning in the over the top ego energies is key. jupiter will be going back over territory he has been past once- so be prepared to go back over things and do some deep reflection.
at 2:45pm mercury in pisces sextiles pluto in capricorn, linking the mind and intellect with the Lord of the Underworld. this is great for deep thinking, therapy, research and investigation. mercury as psychopomp has access to the Underworld and is able to go down there and retrieve insights and bring them back up for conscious reflection and integration. communication can be deep and insightful today!
mars in gemini semisquares the north node in cancer at 11:03pm, bringing tension between the will and drive and the north node of destiny and evolution. Mars in gemini wants to be direct and forthright in communication- but the north node in cancer reminds us that we need to be emotionally tuned in and intuitive and not just coming from the head. The head divorced from the heart can be violent, aggressive or reactive. Emotional attunement and awareness is necessary.
thursday april 11th-
mercury in pisces semisextiles eris in aries at 3:31am, linking the mind and intellect with the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. Luckily this is a harmonious aspect and it supports us using eris’ medicine of shining a Light on the shadow. Mercury in pisces is deeply intuitive and even psychic- while eris in Aries is ready to take actions based on what she sees/knows. pay attention to dreams, insights, information and communication today- they can be revealing!
at 9:18pm mercury in pisces squares stationary retrograde jupiter in sagittarius, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the planet of expansion and excess. having this square occur just after jupiter stationed retrograde can make learning and communications really important. pay attention to what you hear, think and say. with the two spiritual signs activated there can be strong focus on spiritual or religious matters. but this is a square so it can be hard to discern what is Truth and what is untruth, what is fact and what is fiction. watch out for talking too much or excessive thinking ;)
friday april 12th-
the sun in aries squares the mean nodes in cancer/capricorn at 2:33am, creating a T square between the conscious self and ego and the nodes of destiny and karma. the sun is in the midst of triggering the capricorn confluence- bringing major activation to the karma and patterns we are being asked to release or complete. when planets square the nodal axis we are brought to a pivotal point of choice. we can either keep on doing the same old toxic karmic patterns or we can move into new territory- but it will take courage and a willingness to be uncomfortable as the north node path is not the path of comfort or ease. it takes us out of our comfort zone and throws us into the transformational fire! with the north node in cancer the path of growth and evolution is tied up with emotions, feelings, the feminine and Mother energy. going in this direct is not comfortable for aries/capricorn but it is necessary for growth right now!
mars in gemini sesquiquadrates pluto in capricorn at 6:18am, creating tension between the lower will and Higher Will in potent ways. Mars in gemini is airy, cerebral and on the move! Pluto in Capricorn is a slow, brewing power that is beneath the surface. There can be some intensity today and ego conflicts- so be aware and navigate with care. Use the power of mars/pluto to transform yourself and steer clear of power/over power/under dynamics if you can.
venus in pisces sextiles saturn in capricorn at 8:08am, linking the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. venus/saturn is lovely for deepening commitment in relationships and for getting more serious and focus on what is of most value to us. venus is exalted in pisces and her capacity for Divine Love, compassion and altruism are high. when linked with saturn’s grounding and boundaries we are given a great container for relationships, self Love and self worth. this is also lovely for grounding our mystical/spiritual path into real world application and embodiment. pisces is associated with the crown chakra while capricorn/saturn is the root. when we have both anchored and accessible it lights up the entire tree of life (world axis) in the body.
saturday april 13th-
the sun in aries squares pluto in capricorn at 1:017am and cojoins eris at 23’38 aries at 1:53pm- bringing major activation to the approaching pluto/eris square (exact in 2020 but building all year long). sun square pluto can be intense- with lots of shadow, power/control dynamics and the like coming to Light. the sun in aries wants FREEDOM NOW! pluto in capricorn is about the powers that be that hold us back from what we want- both externally in the form of authority figures and internally in the form of our own limitations, restrictions, dogmas and control mechanisms. today can be super intense and powerful- and big insight into your personal experience of the pluto/eris square coming in next year can be incoming. with sun conjunct eris our warrior energies are on HIGH. this can be a time to fight for what we believe in but just make sure you are not being overly aggressive or impulsive and reactive. taking slow steady conscious steps taking a stand against oppression is key.
mars in gemini semisquares eris in aries at 1:17am, creating tension between the will and drive and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. Mars has been triggering the whole Capricorn confluence today and now he links with eris- the goddess that reveals the shadow no one wants to look at. Mars/eris can be fiery and dynamic but it can also get out of hand and be aggressive, reactive and violent. Navigating conflicts with awareness is recommended all week! (And all year really)
venus in pisces trines the north node in cancer at 8:33pm, linking the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the north node of destiny and evolution. on 4/11 mercury made this aspect and now venus does- linking both the mind and the heart with our path of destiny and evolution. important connections, insights and heart openings are possible right now. venus values compassion and onenness- and the north node in cancer values emotions, feelings, self/other care and nurturing. deepening into the watery realms can be a healing balm right now- particularly after the sun just triggered the capricorn confluence and eris in the last 3 days!
sunday april 14th-
sun in aries trines retrograde jupiter in sagittarius at 6:40am, linking the conscious self and ego with the planet of expansion, abundance and opportunity. typically this is great for taking risks, traveling, teaching, exploring and expanding! yet jupiter just stationed retrograde so this is a time to take all that expansive energy and focus it within. inner growth, inner realization and inner expansion are key.
The sun in aries semisquares mars in gemini at 3:07pm, linking the two Yang masculine planets in intense ways. The sun in Aries wants what he wants and he wants it NOW! Mars in gemini wants to speak the Truth and let the chips fall where they may! The one thing to be aware of is reactivity, impulsivity and immaturity. We want to think before we act and respond instead of react. Too much fire can burn the whole house down. Learning to discipline and master that fire is the work of lifetimes!
venus in pisces sextiles pluto in capricorn at 4:51pm, making the last aspect of venus to the capricorn confluence. the capricorn confluence is intense and karmic. there are big things up to navigate right now and big lessons to learn as well. but venus’ lovely aspects have been supporting us in learning the lessons, closing these chapters and completing karmas. venus/pluto is deep, passionate, intense and transformative. in relationships with others and with ourselves we are being asked to go deep. use the power of Love when you end things. as you start so shall you finish and as you finish so shall you start. the ending of cycles and karmas right now informs the new cycles and karmas seeded incoming. consciousness is key!
have a beautiful week!
