April 2018 Highlights:
Three planets change direction in April making this a pivotal month so proceed with caution. With Mercury retrograde in Aries until the15th, it is not easy to gain momentum and complete projects but you can align with and plan for what you want to manifest as the powerful New Moon in Aries is also that day. Saturn in his own sign of Capricorn goes retrograde on the 17th until September 6th. Chiron, the asteroid that rules our shamanic journey of healing throughout our lives, enters Aries on the 17th. This shifts our focus from healing universal issues to dealing with our individual wounds over the next several years. Chiron was discovered in 1977, so this is the first time it has transited this Cardinal Fire sign in his recorded history. Pluto in Capricorn follows Saturn, taking his station retrograde on the 22nd until September 30th. With three intensely powerful planets in hard working Capricorn; Mars, Saturn and Pluto, the first half of the month with Mercury retrograde may feel like an uphill battle. It is time to get serious as you get energy from Mars, patience and perseverance from Saturn and determination from Pluto. Harness this energy to accomplish tasks that will improve your life. The Sun conjoins Mercury on April 1st, Easter Sunday so think before speaking and watch your temper. Mars conjoins Saturn on the 2nd bringing potential for conflict. Communication can be difficult as Mercury squares Mars on the 4th and then squares Saturn on the 5th. Energies lighten up a bit as Venus in Taurus forms an encouraging trine to Saturn on the 7th. Things may feel out of sorts on the morning of the 11th as the Sun forms harsh angles to transformative Pluto and expansive Jupiter in Scorpio. Venus trines Mars later that day helping to take the edge off. The 12th will be a nicer day as Venus sextiles mystical Neptune. The 14th brings opportunity to realign with our soul's intentions as Jupiter forms a dynamic sextile to Pluto and Mars sextiles Neptune. The New Moon in Aries on the 15th is the strongest New Moon of the year, a traditional phase of new beginnings. It is a powerful time for change as the Sun and Moon conjoin erratic Uranus just as he prepares to enter grounded Taurus in May. Pay attention to what you are doing as Mercury stations direct. The 17th is a busy planetary day as Venus opposes Jupiter and trines Pluto as Saturn stations retrograde. Try to remain patient to avoid frustration as the Sun conjoins Uranus on the 18th. The Sun begins his yearly sojourn through steady Taurus on the 19th. Pluto follows Saturn in his retrograde station on the 22nd. Over the next 5 months we will be working on strengthening our structure and stabilizing those areas of our lives where we find weakness. The mood lightens on the 24th as energetic Mars sextiles Jupiter and lovely Venus enters charismatic Gemini. Be honest and forthright as Mercury squares stern Saturn on the 25th. Power struggles could occur as volatile Mars in Capricorn conjoins Pluto on the 26th. The Full Moon in Scorpio on the 29th/30th follows up the initiatory Aries New Moon by showing us what we need to release in order to open up to growth, relinquishing what no longer serves us. We can clear out old emotional resentment now by simply letting go. It can be painful to release but in the long run, purging is beneficial. The Sun forms a harmonious trine to Saturn helping us to focus our intentions on what is most important to us.
