- All Planets Direct & Lets Move on Aries New Moon -
Hello Friends of Astrology,
April will have all of the planets moving in direct motion until Pluto moves retrograde April 27th. Covid or not this is time to move forward in life, metaphorically speaking or in creating new projects, relationships, and other outer manifestations in your life.
April begins with Venus with the Sun, under the Suns beams therefore not visible in the sky. Mythological this is when Venus is in the underworld, dying and releasing until she reappears as an evening star May 3 at 24 degrees of Taurus. The sun is considered the source of life, this is a purification time. Venus in Aries wants what she wants when she wants it, yet this is a time that we reevaluate what is important and release or burn away that which no longer serves our purpose.
Mercury is moving fast, starting the month in Pisces, moving into Aries on the 3rd then quickly into Taurus on the 19th. It is a time that we bring your creative ideas (Mercury mind/thoughts) into action oriented Aries, (and sharp tongued). Mercury then moves into contemplative Taurus which is a time to ‘chew over’ what we are contemplating.
Venus spends the first half of April in Aries then moves into Taurus on the 14th where she loves to be. Venus in Taurus reminds us to enjoy life. Enjoy your favorite deserts, wear the clothes you feel great in, take time to relish the beauty of nature, appreciate art and indulge in a little something you consider luxurious.
Mars spends most of the month in versatile, don’t sit still, let’s talk about it Gemini. On April 23 Mars enters watery Cancer where if he couldn’t convince his way through communicating his point in Gemini, he will find the back door to maneuver into getting what he wants in Cancer. Mars in Cancer is about putting your energy into your home, focusing on your body, and being conscious of the emotional stuff from the past that still gets to you.
The intention of the April Aries new moon is about taking action in learning useful skills that can be utilized in multiple arenas. However it is not just about signing up for a new program on impulse, with Venus exactly square Pluto it wants you to really want to learn that, have a passion for it. Inspiration comes from Eris which is in between the new moon and Venus. Being pssed off over a circumstance not necessarily of your making gives the kick in the butt to take make changes.
The Aries new moon April 11th is sextile (harmonious connection) with Mars in Gemini. Mars is the ruler of Aries and is supporting the intention of the new moon of Aries. Mars is now out of bounds which create a wild card aspect to the role of Mars, being our foot soldier to defend us and the planet that is responsible for motivation. Mars being the maverick at this time is unpredictable, as if Mars is making choices on his own. If you do something then second guess why, look to your subconscious to seek what the underlying intention is about.
Mercury and Mars working together will help you in manifesting your intentions from this new moon, purity in mind and action is the key.
The Sun moves out of Aries and into Taurus on the 19th of April following Mercury, Venus, and Uranus who are already there. Having 4 of the traditional 10 planets in one sign puts a strong emphasis on cultivating those qualities. Granted with the maverick planet of Uranus changing the rules of the game it may not be the same type of enjoyment in earlier years. Gone may be the spring neighborhood art festivals with heavy crowds or the crowd at the buffet bar at a packed restaurant yet a walk in a flowering garden or park with a charming picnic basket will do.
Mars moves into Cancer on the 23rd giving motivation to nurture self, home, and garden. Perhaps starting a few vegetable or flower plants from seed, or bringing home a house plant, kitten or puppy.
April ends with a pink super full moon in Scorpio on the 26th/ 27th (depending where you are of course) and with secretive powerful and intensely charged Pluto shifting to go retrograde. The full moon will appear very large b/c it is closer to the earth, tides will be higher and emotions will run stronger.
Every year when we get the Scorpio full moon it is a time when secrets can come to light. And it is a time when that which was hidden is revealed. On a personal level it is a moment when we see or acknowledge something about ourselves that we repressed or ignored and now can embrace.
It is also a time of deep passion, intuition, and carries a sexy vibe of desire.
This year all from the past holds true for this Scorpio full moon yet there is extra emphasis with Pluto (the modern ruler of Scorpio) so incredibly strong, and with Mars, the traditional ruler of Scorpio out of bounds which makes Mars unruly. In addition Mars is in Cancer a sensitive sign stirring up emotions and bringing old emotional trauma or baggage to the surface.
In addition the full moon is vibrating by opposition to Uranus in Taurus. Uranus is the awakener and doesn’t care too much how we feel about being woken up. Think of a rushed parent yelling at you to wake up you are late for school while you are comfy in bed having sweet pleasant dreams. It is a jolt. Or a mischievous brother sneaking up behind you while you are happy talking to your girlfriends sunning yourself on a pleasant warm day on a dock of a lake then pushing you into the cold water.
Both circumstances pull you to move forward, one to go to school and learn the other to swim or survive. This full moon can have that effect. We are in the school of life and we discover that it is time to awaken from the dream we are in and evolve. Or something pushes out of our comfort zone and we utilize the skills we have to get out of an environment that is not conducive to our long term wellbeing.
To bring even more complexity the full moon has Saturn on the heliocentric node of Neptune at the midpoint of Jupiter and Pluto. ??? What does that mean? Well Neptune obscures, it puts a cloud of confusion, delusion, or unknowing around whatever it touches. On Saturn which wants to accomplish and bring success the node of Neptune will make it difficult unless you are in tune with your psychic intuitive side. Jupiter Pluto wants do something big and meaningful, the Saturn influence there on a worldly level indicates those in authority (Saturn) will hide or have hidden agendas in what they are promoting.
In your world how to work with this vibration is to listen to your intuition and be clear about the intention and consequences of what you desire.
The help to understand and manifest with the Scorpio full moon is with Mercury and Venus in Taurus. This is a signature for steady friends that know who they are, that you can count on, that are slow to make decisions or judgements but once they do the decision or view have been well thought out and hold deep meaning and value.
The last day of April, Friday the 30th, closes out the month with the moon in freedom seeking, knowledge loving Sagittarius. We rush into May with enthusiasm and plans for our future. This is the eve of Beltane, one of four cross corner days of the year that mark the halfway point between the equinoxes and the solstices. Enjoy this remarkable time to feel a youthful energy pulsating through the ethers and rushing through your veins.
