In the Stars for April
Happy Spring! The transiting Sun in Aries brings in the bursting assertive fiery energy to our spring season; all of nature is bursting alive with buds and flowers. It is nice to hear the birds chirping their mating call awakening the new spirit for this new zodiacal cycle. The Sun in Aries signifies the return of the light of the Sun to the northern hemisphere. New beginning and initiatives are underway during this time. We are feeling more inspired to go out and enjoy the great outdoors especially now that the pandemic is under some containment. There are fast-moving aggressive energies this month which will settle down around the middle of April 19th when the Sun moves into the practical slower earth sign Taurus. Midmonth Venus planet of relationships and Mercury will move into practical Taurus and will join up with radical and rebellious Uranus in Taurus bringing in change to those who are security-minded fixed sun signs: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. Jupiter planet of abundance and expansion moves past restrictive and reforming Saturn in Aquarius later this month allowing for more opportunities for humanitarian reforms to develop.
Uranus moving through the utilitarian Taurus, representing money, security and status, real estate continues to square restrictive Saturn in Aquarius this aspect continues to demonstrate ways in which reforms are needed to quell the rebellion and violence across the country that is usurping and dredging up the past abuses of power as to how this nation was formed. New government reforms may be needed and evident in this year’s time. Discipline versus freedom for the group and individual to live in harmony; this is the dilemma of these times the group versus the individuals who hold power.
Neptune in Pisces continues to influence the water signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces perhaps supporting intuitive development to these sun signs yet challenging the mutable signs Gemini, Virgo and Sagittarius to maintain their mental health. Neptune creates confusion, illusions or inspirations you get to choose what is real or imagined. This Neptune influence is still challenging for many during this time.
Sun sign Aries individuals share the characteristic of being first to initiate action since this is a sign ruled by Mars. Impulsive action is another trait of Aries, jumping to conclusions, charging ahead, and being impatient. They can be courageous, quick-thinking, competitive and aggressive in their effort and impulsive. As they are true go-getters they will have many plans and initiatives to work out sometimes they don’t follow through as they are likely not to carefully calculate all options and they can be hot-tempered and outspoken telling it like it is. They do excel at their jobs and hobbies. And are warm and have spontaneous friendships in love it’s the passion that drives them. They enjoy the outdoors, freedom and independence. Happy Birthday, Aries, This looks like a year for opportunities to let go of insecurities around traumas regarding your identity as Venus in Aries and Chiron will bring in soothing balm to your ego for those born late in March.
