April 1 – 7th
Intuition and Inspiration!
What to expect: Healing
What to watch out for: Opportunities to write
What will it affect? Communication, healing, relationships, strategy
As the week begins Mercury, which recently went direct in the sign of Pisces, will conjunct Neptune. We’ll have a rich dream life this week. Look for any messages in your dreams that your unconscious mind may be trying to communicate to you. We are also deeply intuitive. This is a great time for writing poetry, or any other type of creative writing. It’s also good for visioning exercises. What do you want to create? How do you see yourself in 2 years, 5 years, 25yrs?
On March 3rd Mars will sextile Chiron the wounded healer currently in Aries. Mars is in the communication sign of Gemini. This adds to the energy by allowing us to use words and writing to release our thoughts and heal wounds. Mars in Gemini is also a bit chatty, so if we talk to others or even teach others, it can be quite healing to ourselves. As they say, you teach others sometimes what you need to learn. Mars in aspect to Chiron brings up warrior healing energy and so helping actions like these can be good for building self-esteem. Also, If you need to say something to someone, as John Mayer says “say what you need to say”. Pallas is in the relationship sign of Libra and is trine Juno the marriage and partnership asteroid in chatty Gemini. This is an amazing time to sit down with your partner to hash out any relationship issues and to build some strategy around how you want to work together. You can also use this energy with a coach, spiritual teacher or gurus which are also a type of relationship.
Why? Mercury Conjunction Neptune, Mars Sextile Chiron, Pallas Trine Juno
The New Moon in Aries
What to expect: Intention setting
What to watch out for: Imagined Limitations
What will it affect? Projects, business, travel
On April 5th, the New Moon is in Aries at 15 degrees. New Moons are a great time for setting intentions. This time focus your intentions on anything entrepreneurial. Aries energy is all about courageously going for it. It’s the doer. It’s the one that acts first and then thinks later. Aries is fairly unconcerned with consequences. For Aries, it’s okay to fail, but that’s not the plan! The New Moon is trine Ceres. Ceres is in Sagittarius and feels nurtured by adventure and freedom. This is a wonderful combination for entrepreneurial activities. It’s great energy if you want to embark on a path of higher learning. If so, now is the time to get clear with who what you want from the school you choose and what you envision for the teachers you will have.
Why? New Moon at 15°Aries, Sun Trine Ceres
Start a project!
What to expect: Getting things done
What to watch out for: Intuition
What will it affect? Business, projects
On weekend, April 7th Mercury will sextile Saturn. Mercury is still in Pisces and Saturn is in Capricorn. This combination helps to ground our intuitive thoughts. We are able to view things with a deeply intuitive and critical eye.
Though I don’t often talk about the moon aspects in the horoscope, they are very important for initiating anything new. All thing initiated have a birth chart. Business, relationships, project, these will all do well if they are started with good energy behind them. This weekend the moon will be in earthy, grounded, does-well-with-money Taurus and will make amazing aspects to Venus, Mercury, Neptune, and Saturn. What intentions did you set on the New Moon? Is this weekend a good time to get started? Things that will do well include anything inspirational, healing, and musical. If you feel like this is good timing, trust your gut! It is! If you don’t have anything ready for launch, that’s okay, use the energy to plant!
