The information in this column is limited. It does not replace your seeing your astrologer. If you know the sign of your Moon and your Ascending sign, read those sections also. This information is helpful because it mentions planets passing through your sign. These do bring opportunities.
Special note: Here’s wishing all of you the best in April. Spring has started and I hope you are enjoying the beginning of the astrological year. Let’s delight in life, nature, beauty, and enthusiasm. Pluto has gone from a 15 year stay in Capricorn to Aquarius. Saturn has gone from a 2 year stay in Aquarius to Pisces. And Mars has gone from a 7 month stay in Gemini and entered Cancer. So things should feel different. The emphasis this month is on the signs Aquarius, Pisces, Aries, Taurus, Gemini, and Cancer. Whatever we have in our own charts, we also become these qualities temporarily. Aquarius knows, Pisces believes, Aries acts, Taurus possesses, Gemini perceives, and Cancer nurtures. The Sun in weeks 1, 2, and 3; and Mercury until the 3rd are in entusiastic and active Aries. We take on these qualities. While planets are in Aries, they meet Jupiter and bring us optimism. The Sun in week 4; and Mercury from the 3rd ; and Venus until the 11th are in Taurus. This focuses us on nature, beauty and finances. Planets passing through Taurus meet Uranus and bring us unexpected events. From the 11th Venus in Gemini stimulates communication, socilal activities, and travel. Mercury is retrograde from the 21st; so let’s start focusing now to avoid mistakes. Mars is in Cancer this month. We may be driven to deal with domestic and family issues. Stresses in these areas should be addressed. Saturn, now is in Pisces and stays until Feb. ’26. Pisceans will have some concerns that they should address by setting goals to fill any deficiencies that they encounter. And they will have opportunities to build disipline and accomplish. Saturn can also promote drive and get us where we want to go, through positive qualities like planning, work, & learning from setbacks. We should be careful about who we team up with; and make sure that they can pull their weight. Uranus in Taurus until 2026 brings the unexpected in finances, and the original in art. For Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius dealing with the unexpected or disruptive is on tap. This will take good managerial skills and the ability to know what we can manage, and what we can’t. Resting, being one of the good guys, and not living on the edge are important. Neptune is still in its long term stay in its own sign of altered states, Pisces. Meditation can help us do this in legal and safe ways. Now that Saturn is also in Pisces we have two very different influences there; one is imaginative and the other is practical.
Pluto is so early in Aquarius that it will affect late Capricorns and early Aquarians. Both should address any forceful things, people, and situations that they meet. This can bring the development of positive force, dynamism. Activity with constructive groups can be good. On a larger scale, Pluto is moving away from affecting government to affecting humanity.
A Full Moon in Libra later on the 4th, the 5th, and the 6th focuses us on our identity versus our relationships.
A New Moon Solar Eclipse in late Aries with good Jupiter late on the 17th, the 18th, 19th promotes youth, enthusiasm, spring, and new starts. Let’s be sensible but do something great.
Remember that new, full, and quarter moons are powerful times during the month. Actions taken at these times should be positive and well thought out. The quarter moons are in Capricorn on the afternoon of the 11th, the 12th, and much of the 13th and in Leo on the 27th, the 28th, much of the and 29th..
Days that look fairly harmonious this month are: 3, 4, 10, 11, 15, 19, 21, 23, 25, 29, & 30. For really important events, it requires a deeper look. Part of the magic of Astrology is how much better things go when we start things on good days.
Extra special note: I’m recommending that people read Covey, Dyer, and Chopra during their birth month. They write about achieving success and happiness and this is what the Sun is about in our charts. During the birth month we have the opportunity to start a new cycle of success and these authors have great ideas on how to do it. For those who want to get in on the ground floor of understanding existence and self-improvement, C.C. Zain’s Church of Light books will make you an astrologer and a metaphysician. These books teach us that there is a supernatural dimension in and around us that makes life subtle and interesting. And that Astrology gives us helpful information in innumerable situations. And finally, that we have the power to change our lives through Astrology and by harmonizing our feelings and our thinking.
