April 9 - 15, 2012
April 9-15, 2012 there are significant planetary movements that will affect us all on one level or another. Pluto, planet if deep transforming change, is stopping forward progress and moving backwards until September. Mars will stop its back slide and head forward, it's been retrograding since the end of January. Retrograding planets turn their outgoing energy inward. It's often a time of review, of reworking something important.
April 9,2012 starts of with a Moon in ever expanding Sagittarius. At least the healthy Sadges are ever expanding, we can all get stuck in ruts, we can all make choices that stunt our growth. With Sagittarius energy in the air you may find yourself asking the big questions, searching for truth. Truth seeking is often top of mind for a Sagittarius, they have built in BS detectors. Don't be surprised if you find yourself being unusually honest. This is a good thing- just try to deliver your message with a little tact. That is the tricky part.
April ninth there is a lovely aspect between Uranus, the great liberator, and Venus, how we relate to the world. This harmonious configuration could create a sudden romance, an unexpected encounter that dazzles you, shaking you out of the mundane- offering up something extraordinary. Get out there and mingle, walk on the beach, window shop, you need to be in a position for magic to happen. Today is not the day to be a home body. Change is the only thing we can count on in life. It usually works in your favor if you are out there initiating it. There is an electric energy in the spring air, there is promise of something more. The only limits are within your own mind, Uranus is there to show you what is beyond your own self imposed limitations.
April tenth Pluto is halting forward movement for a redo of sorts. He will be retracing his steps until September 17,2012. Pluto ain't no joke. Wherever Pluto is in our charts is some of our deepest lessons. You can look to this part of the birth chart to see what your Soul has planned for this incarnation. It is here you can track the evolutionary journey of the Soul. Pluto is now travelling through Capricorn, urging us all to take a look at how we relate to responsibility. Institutions and governments, established systems all fall under Capricorn.
With Pluto in Capricorn we can expect these areas of our society to be changed significantly- in many cases beyond all recognition. Pluto shines a light into the dark corners of our minds and hearts. We need to face our dark sides to integrate them. You may find yourself discovering fears relating to aging and death as well as your sense of security in your life. Fears need to be faced and held within the light of consciousness to be released. Pluto will assist with this process. Actually it's more like insist. Avoidance is futile. How you react to your new awareness will determine the ease at which you learn your lessons. So feel the fear and accept it.
The Moon moves into Capricorn on Wednesday possibly bringing the blues. Or you might take control of the situations around you, taking responsibility is always the urging of Capricorn energy. If there is something in your life that needs your attention and positive forward action now is the time. If you feel depressed or fearful just consider yourself under the influence of Saturn, ruler of Capricorn. Try not to get too mired in melancholy. This too shall pass.
Friday Mars moves forward. Mars is the planet of action. The initiator of the zodiac. God of war and self interest. Poor Mars has been stuck for an extended stay in Virgo since January 23,2012. Mars isn't comfortable in nit-picky Virgo. Many of us have been forced to slow down and reevaluate our relationship to our health. With Mars in this position our energy may have been focused on reordering our routines relating to our diets and exercise. Perhaps an illness has forced you to consider what you are putting into your body. Are you caring for your body or neglecting and abusing it? We only have one body for this entire incarnation and it is imperative that we care for it. This was probably made obvious in the recent past. Now that Mars can get going again you may feel a great surge of new energy. Forward progress can be swift and exciting. New routines working well for you as you move on to less serious matters.
The weekend is influenced by a lovely Libra Moon- And with Jupiter and Venus in a harmonious aspect you may feel a dreamy sort of romance in the air. It's a great weekend to appreciate the love in your Life. Indulge in art and beauty. Focus on peace and balance in your world. Now you can have a taste of the finer things in life. We often forget to be open to receive all the good in the Universe. Surround yourself with Love.
