Development (the Lunar Cycle)
The New Moon in Aries on April 5 is touching on the issue of fun, dating, games, children and personal projects. It’s a good time to set intentions with regard to this creative sphere, as well as the sort of legacy that you’re creating. You can also benefit now by spending time reflecting on your brand expression and aesthetics.
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 collective dreams, brotherhoods, and your broader social network. You may be more involved with professional organizations or group work during this time. This can also be about bringing some of your long-term goals and aspirations to completion.
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 of the meaning of home, roots, ancestry, and finding your spiritual center.
You may have had some disruptions or bouts of confusion in your home or private life, or perhaps it has just been a time of imagining new ways of thinking about where “home” is or what that means. You may have been traveling or exploring the idea of moving house, for example.
Now that Mercury is moving into Aries on April 16, your focus will turn to your creativity and the sort of legacy that you are creating. From mid-April until May 6, you can take what you learned and turn it into something tangible that expresses everything that you are.
Venus is the planet of connections, relationships, and affinity. For the first half of the month, until April 20, she is doing you great favor by visiting your homeworld and private life, where she’s in pretty good shape and brings some positive sense of peace within oneself. Mellow, easy-going Venus in Pisces helps with connecting with others in a deeper way, if they are the kind of people that you feel close at home with. You may prefer to stay in and get comfy and enjoy the finer things with a couple of close friends right now.
From April 20 until mid-May, Venus will mosey on to Aries, bringing more love to your creative and dating life. How do your creations align with your vision and values? Perhaps you want to be a bit more playful now and use your creativity to do draw closer to and connect with your audience.
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 partnerships and one-on-one relationships. You may be putting in more work when it comes to agreements and client work or customer service.
You may be working more cooperatively now, or putting work into your relationships and terms of agreement. 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 realm of the self – body, mind, and soul. In other words, how you present to the world. You will likely see some positive growth here this year (November 8, 2018 – December 3, 2019).
Jupiter begins his annual, several months long Retrograde journey on April 10. This represents a deepening expansion in regard to your self-growth and personal development.
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 house of finance and material possessions. You have an opportunity and a call to action to establish consistency in the ways that you handle your physical resources.
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.
