Finally! This week we have some very beautiful, magical energy with Venus in the sensual sign of Taurus making a positive and passionate trine with Mars early this week, followed by an artistic and compassionate sextile to Neptune. The aspects this week are a stark contrast to the hectic and frustrating energy that was more prevalent last week, and provide us a wonderful opportunity to kick back, relax and enjoy the ride.
Monday (4/9): No major planetary aspects. The Moon today is transiting the enigmatic and friendly sign of Aquarius, making a supportive sextile over to retrograde Mercury in Aries, indicating that today is an excellent day for socializing, friendly communication, and sharing our ideas and feelings with others.
Tuesday (4/10): The Sun in Aries today comes into a challenging aspect with Pluto in Capricorn, bringing the potential for intense situations and power struggles with people in positions of authority. Hard aspects between the Sun and Pluto often serve to highlight deep seeded psycho-emotional issues and insecurities, bringing them up to the surface of our consciousness in order to be worked through, transformed and released. Today is an excellent energy for deep psychological work and research of all kinds, as this aspect favors revealing the truth at the core of the issues at hand.
Venus in Taurus comes into a beautiful trine with Mars in Capricorn today, which favors passionate action in partnership with others. This energy is great for enhancing passion and sensuality in the bedroom, and favors agreements between men and women. Now is a time when creativity will be stimulated, and relationships are strengthened and intensified.
The Moon today continues to transit the friendly-yet-detached sign of Aquarius, making difficult aspects to the two benefic planets, Venus and Jupiter, causing some of us to feel overly self-indulgent. The Aquarius moon is enigmatic. While it brings a sort of voyeuristic emotional detachment in our close relationships, there is also a deeply felt sense of connection with humanity and the world at large. There may be a resistance to the ideas and beliefs of others all the while new inspiration and insight might come about intuitively from out of the blue. This is a great time for innovation, technology and doing things that are outside of the norm. Humanitarian pursuits are favored at this time, and it may prove easier to rally people together for a common cause.
Wednesday (4/11): No major planetary aspects. The Moon goes Void-of-Course at 5:15am MST after making it’s last aspect in Aquarius—a sextile over to Uranus supporting positive change and intuitive insight. The Moon remains VOC until 11:40am when it moves into the mystical sign of Pisces at 11:40am MST.
The moon takes on a dreamy, magical quality in Pisces. Intuition, connectedness and imagination are heightened. Situations, people, or special circumstances may manifest themselves from out of nowhere, bringing incredible synchronicities. People become more empathic, and it may become difficult for some to discern between their own emotions and the emotions of others. This is an excellent time to delve deep into the spiritual realms. People may intentionally become more detached as a coping mechanism to guard themselves against intense emotions. Some may get lost in fantasy or drugs and alcohol to achieve this end. There is a danger of disillusionment as people are more susceptible to deception. The energy of moon in Pisces can bring great beauty, insight and romance when used appropriately.
Thursday (4/12): Venus in it’s home sign of Taurus makes a supportive aspect over to Neptune in its home sign of Pisces today! This dreamy, romantic, and sensual aspect is excellent for heightening compassionate connection in relationships! Right now is an excellent time to connect with others and for artistic endeavors of all kinds!
The Moon continues to transit the magical sign of Pisces throughout today, heightening the dreamy, Neptunian energy that is so prevalent right now. The Moon makes only positive aspects during it’s entire 2.5 day transit through Pisces, indicating that today will be an easy, floaty sort of day with lots of opportunity for heightened intuition, visualization, creativity, and manifestation. As the Moon continues to wane, and Mercury begins to slow down to station, now is an excellent time to slow down our thoughts and turn our attention inward in preparation for the new lunar cycle ahead! :)
