Development (the Lunar Cycle)
The New Moon in Aries on April 5 is touching on the issue of your alliances, social network, and connection to groups and associations. It’s a good time to set intentions with regard to various communities you may be involved with.
This begins a 4 week period (April 5 – May 4) that culminates with the Full Moon in Libra on April 19. This is the second Full Moon in Libra in a row, highlighting the importance of seeking balance, fairness, and justice in our lives.
For you this quest for equilibrium can be centered around your sphere of pleasure-seeking, risk-taking, and dating. It may involve themes of creativity, passion, and a childlike playfulness. This can also be about balancing between your creative self expression for your own purposes and your involvement with a collective.
The focus will be on having fun, creating, and marking your path with your own individuality and personal brand. Give a nod to your audience, colleagues, and communities for how special they are in turn. It is all about balance, fairness, and equilibrium right now.
Mercury was Retrograde all last month, and is still clearing the shadow zone until April 16 when we will finally shake off the fuzzies. This Retrograde journey has been leading you on a wayward adventure in the realm of your career and public reputation, the way that you showcase yourself to the world and the accomplishments that you are known for.
You may have had some disruptions or bouts of confusion in your public life, or perhaps it has just been a time of imagining new ways of thinking about what you want to do with your life. You may have been working out a method for showing up on the world stage or focusing on your long-term goals and projects, for example.
Now that Mercury is moving into Aries on April 16, your focus will turn to community. From mid-April until May 6, you can take what you learned and turn it into something that assists you in making connections in various social groups that are of interest to you.
Venus is the planet of connections, relationships, and affinity. For the first half of the month, until April 20, she is visiting your world of career and reputation, where she’s in pretty good shape and brings some general positivity. Mellow, easy-going Venus in Pisces helps with connecting to the general public in a deeper way, while just having a good time and being friendly, relatable, and approachable.
From April 20 until mid-May, Venus will mosey on to Aries, bringing more love to your friendships and group associations. How do your alliances align with your vision and values? It’s a good time for social relations, as Venus brings people together and establishes comradery in your collectives.
Mars, the planet of work and action to be taken, is in Gemini this month (March 30 – May 16). This is stirring up undertakings in your place of your big bad self: body, spirit, and mind. You may be putting in more work when it comes to this area – one that invokes appearances, persona, and self-development.
You may feel restless and eager to pursue many activities – especially physical activities. Taking action in any way that shares your story is a good way to channel this energy. You might take on a project where you are refining your personal brand to be more in line with who you are as a person and what you believe in.
You may be working to reveal your true self now, or to establish good health and move your body more. Wherever your business takes you this month, it is likely to be in several directions. It’s best to limit the variance somewhat, although multitasking now can generate a good flow of energy and spiritedness that keeps you going.
Jupiter is smiling auspiciously at you from his most upbeat placement in Sagittarius. For you, this transit is happening in your place of agreements, partnerships, and intimate relationships, where you will likely see some positive growth this year (November 8, 2018 – December 3, 2019).
Jupiter begins his annual, several months long Retrograde journey on April 10, representing a deepening expansion in regard to your commitments and relationships.
Saturn is the big boss who establishes boundaries, limits, structures, and doctrines to live by. It’s the hard work that we put in day to day that sees long-term results for our steady effort. Right now, Saturn is in Capricorn (December 19, 2017 – December 16, 2020).
This is a time of establishing a rhythm with our routines and schedules, and committing to building a solid foundation in our work. For you, this is affecting your inheritances, shared resources, or possibly even connection to the occult sciences. You have an opportunity and a call to action to establish consistency in the ways that you draw on these sources of power.
Saturn will begin his own Retrograde journey on April 17, joining Jupiter in the act of deepening and doubling down on the issues he’s been hammering home.
