Development (the Lunar Cycle)
The New Moon in Aries on April 5 is touching on the issue of tangibles in your life – things like your finances, values, and possessions. It’s a good time to set intentions with your cash flow, physical objects or products, and resources. You can also benefit now by spending time reflecting on your values.
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 issues of deep transformation, psychic awareness, mortality, or inheritance. You may be juggling between taking the initiative and working with others or larger systems/agencies for assistance and support. This can also be about finding balance around the way that you handle finances or assets in close personal relationships or in partnerships.
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 that is closest to home for you – your own body, mind, and spirit.
You may have had some disruptions or bouts of confusion in the way that you are seen by others or in how you project yourself, or perhaps it has just been a time of imagining new ways of being in the world. You may have been exploring how you feel about things and reviewing your position in the grand scheme of things.
Now that Mercury is moving into Aries on April 16, he brings attendance to the issue of valuables. This may be money, assets, and values that stem from your awareness of who you are and what you stand for. From mid-April until May 6, you can communicate in a more direct manner what you ascribe importance to.
Venus is the planet of connections, relationships, and affinity. For the first half of the month, until April 20, she is visiting your home sign, Pisces. Mellow, easy-going Venus in Pisces helps with your attractiveness to others. This helps to make you more amiable and willing to make friends.
From April 20 until mid-May, Venus will mosey on to Aries, in another nod to the fabric of your world. How does the tactile world align with your vision and values? Perhaps you want to give your clients or customers a tactile experience that helps them feel more connected to your brand.
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 home and private life. You may be putting in more work when it comes to this area – one that invokes your relationship with parents or other authority figures, and your ancestry or roots.
You may be attending to matters from the past. 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 career and public reputation, 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 the reach of your public life.
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 long-term restructuring effort is taking place in your social network and connection to organizations, collectives, and acquaintances. You have an opportunity and a call to action to establish consistency in the ways that you interact with the communities that are important to you.
Saturn will begin his own Retrograde journey on April 17, doubling down on the issues he’s been hammering home.
