First of all, I apologize for not getting last month’s Forecast to you. I did have some challenges going on at the time I normally write these, but I am better now and happy to continue to provide for you.
And I appreciate all of those who wrote to me with concern when they say that the Forecast had not made out this last time.
We enter April with a Waning Moon, until the New Moon on the 11th.
2 – Mercury in Taurus will harmonize with, sextile, Pluto in Capricorn. Positive Mercury/Pluto aspects are always conducive to deep mental investigations and communications. Pluto also induces a need to look more deeply to the inner, unconscious forces and motives as to why we think what we think, or say what we say.
3 – Mercury moves from Earthy Taurus into Fiery Aries.
6 – Venus in Aries will harmonize with, sextile, Mars in Gemini.
Aries emotional willfulness stimulated by and comfortable coming forth with powerfully engaged mental understandings and communications.
9 – Mars in Gemini will square Neptune in Pisces.
Gemini/Pisces tensions are always going to challenge our ability to stay clear and focused.
This configuration can also create some mental criticalness which is based on confused ungrounded feelings, or a feeling of victimhood.
10 – Mercury in Aries will harmonize with, sextile, Saturn in Aquarius.
Mercury in Aries is powerful and dynamic mental energies, but not easy to focus and control. Saturn’s positive qualities of focus and discipline and responsibility can help those mental energies with that focus and control, as well has to how to focus on what really has the best chance to really work.
Later, Venus in Aries will harmonize with, sextile, Jupiter in Aquarius.
Venus in Aries bears with it some emotional/affectionate dynamism that can also be impulsive. This harmony with Jupiter in Aquarius, however, inspire and guide that emotional dynamism to altruistic ideals of bringing a higher group consciousness into being.
11 – The Sun/Moon, New Moon in Aries conjunction.
Always a time to align your Solar, Conscious energies of courage and enthusiasm, with your Lunar, Unconscious energies of courage and willful enthusiasm. This will be a pretty power-packed Aries alignment as Mercury and Venus will in a ‘stellium’ with the Sun and Moon as they will also be in Aries at this time.
Later in the day Venus in Aries will square Pluto in Capricorn.
So, right after the Aries uprising rally the emotional/affectionate aspect of this Aries energy will be challenged/confronted by the deep Lord of the underworld forcing either a deep investigation of your motives, or a deeper awareness of unconscious or hidden forces within yourself, or others, or society at large that have a deep power to control or manipulate your feelings.
13 – The Sun in Aries will harmonize with, sextile, Mars in Gemini.
The Sun, the biggest thing in the sky, will enjoy making use of this energetic ambitious Gemini mental energy to communicate what feels to be coming from one’s confident, courageous self.
14 – Venus moves from fiery Aries into Earthy Taurus.
15 – The Sun in Aries will harmonize with, sextile, Jupiter in Aquarius. That previously mentioned Sun in Aries/confident courageous self can here be uplifted and inspired to act in ways of universally loving group consciousness.
16 – The Sun in Aries will square Pluto in Capricorn.
This can create some powerful tensions. The Sun in Aries has, thus far this month, had mostly harmonious support to express its confident courageousness. This square with Pluto is going to challenge that deeply. The Sun in Aries, when challenged, can react with impulsive aggressivity and violence. The challenge may be perceived as coming from deep, hidden, manipulative forces within others or society at large, or from within your own unconscious complexes.
17 – A lot of celestial activity today.
Mars in Gemini will harmonize with, trine, Jupiter in Aquarius.
Gemini and Aquarius both being Air signs attuned to the Psychological function of thinking there will be a lot of pumped-up, aspirational, altruistic communications, learnings and understandings available.
Later Mercury, the planet of mental thinking and communication, will be harmonizing, sextiling Jupiter in Aquarius. This will definitely keep the conversation going with even more oomph.
And, a few hours after that, Mercury in Aries will harmonize with, sextile, Mars in Gemini. So, all during the first part of the day we will have this energizing, aspirational mental, thinking communicating dance going on between Mercury, Mars and Jupiter.
Then…..Mercury in Aries will square Pluto in Capricorn and the party will be over or at least severely scrutinized, or having to recognize deeper levels of psychological or societal structures that has to recognize and deal with.
18 – The Sun in Aries will conjunct Mercury in Aries.
This should return us to more confident, feisty mental understandings and expressions.
19 – The Sun will enter the month of Taurus.
22 – Venus will conjunct Uranus in Taurus.
Venus rules Taurus and therefore when she is there she knows what real love is. Uranus can create ruptures but it is also liberating, potentially freeing up potentials that have, for one reason or another, not able to be expressed.
Just remember, with Uranus, one should always expect the unexpected.
23 – Mars will move from airy Gemini into watery Cancer.
24 – Mercury will conjunct Uranus in Taurus.
Mercury is not as positive in Taurus as is Venus. Here he can be a bit self-absorbed. Conjuncting Uranus, either the negative expression of that can suddenly blurt out. Or one can have some surprise experience that helps you to see, and be liberated from, the error of your ways.
25 – Venus in Taurus will square Saturn in Aquarius.
Although Venus in Taurus is well-placed in Taurus, it can also be a sensually indulgent. Saturn in Aquarius can be rather mentally detached from emotions. There may be some clash between those kinds of energies, within yourself or with others.
Some hours later, Mercury in Taurus will square Saturn in Aquarius. This may will entail some mental/communication restrictions and acceptance of authoritative boundaries, within or without.
Then Mercury will conjunct Venus in Taurus, so a little grouping today with Venus, Mercury and Saturn, ending with this joining of Mercury and Venus.
Mercury, mental thinking, and Venus, emotional feeling joined up can be good for allowing expression of feelings. Venus in Taurus knowing what real love is and Mercury tending to be self-absorbed may make that communication something requiring a bit more consideration.
26 – The annual Sun in Taurus/Moon in Scorpio Full Moon opposition.
This Full Moon always involves a polarity, and need to integrate, a Solar conscious earthy Taurus identification, and Lunar unconscious, emotional, watery Scorpionic instincts and energies.
Today’s Full Moon is in a big ‘T-Square’ of tension, with the Moon opposing not only the Sun in Taurus, but Uranus, Mercury and Venus in Taurus as well, on the one side And the Moon will also be squaring Saturn in Aquarius, as Saturn is also squaring the Sun, Uranus, Mercury and Venus in Taurus.
Seems like a lot of energies coming to a ‘head’ perhaps with some kind of break through or breakdown.
27 – Pluto turns retrograde, so his deep investigations and process of things will be going back over things that have already been in play.
29 – Mercury in Taurus will harmonize with, sextile, Neptune in Pisces.
The highly sensitive, compassionate, spiritual and imaginative qualities of Neptune in Pisces should be able to provide a real healing uplift of Mercury in Taurus’ tendency to be more self-oriented.
30 – The Sun will conjunct Uranus in Taurus. The long-term theme of Uranus in Taurus, is Uranian revolutionary freedoms from old patterns that have outlived their purpose. The shorthand karmic lesson of Taurus is whether you are going to choose the love or the money. So this is where the new revolutionary freedom would tend to be active. The Sun in Taurus conjuncting this may will bring even greater conscious attention to, and identification with this endeavor.
