SATURDAY 12 APRIL - TODAY’S MAIN ZODIAC FOCUS:
MOON IN VIRGO trines Pluto in Capricorn and opposes Chiron in Pisces. Use organisation,
efficiency and careful planning to help you combat difficulties. Recognise that you
hold the key to solving your own problems and healing your own wounds.
VENUS CONJUNCTS NEPTUNE IN PISCES. This beautiful and gifted combination can make
artists of all of us, so long as we recognise that there’s an art to everything we
do in life. From falling in love to loading the dishwasher - every moment becomes
an act of creation if we believe that each life lived is a work of art.
SUN CONJUNCTS ERIS IN ARIES. Tap into this fiercely independent energy to help you
assert yourself more convincingly. As females tend to find assertiveness more problematic
than males I offer this feminine-focussed online article filled with useful tips
(for both sexes) on how to stand up for yourself.
SUNDAY 13 APRIL - TODAY’S MAIN ZODIAC FOCUS:
MOON MOVES INTO LIBRA. We've arrived at the time of the month that favours one to
one relationships. Partnerships should be prioritised as you are more likely to meet
your goals in collaboration or co-operation with others rather than by going it alone.
There must be equal amounts of effort on both sides however - neither partner should
be doing all the giving or all the taking.
MONDAY 14 APRIL - TODAY’S MAIN ZODIAC FOCUS:
LIBRA, GEMINI & VIRGO, SAGITTARIUS, AQUARIUS,
MOON IN LIBRA opposes Mercury & Uranus in Aries, squares Jupiter in Cancer & Pluto
in Capricorn and conjuncts Mars. The Moon creates a dynamic lunar Grand Cross during
the course of today. It will challenge you to maintain a balanced attitude, even
if you feel threatened by other peoples’ selfish, disruptive or controlling behaviour.
MERCURY SQUARES JUPITER IN CANCER & CONJUNCTS URANUS IN ARIES. This planetary pattern
encourages creative thinking but could cause frustration unless those with innovative
ideas accept the fact that their brilliant insights may initially go un-noticed.
Ground-breaking concepts tend to turn up ahead of their time - they take a while
to catch on.
PLUTO MOVES RETROGRADE IN CAPRICORN, sending us this potent message:
Trust your power.
Use it wisely, use it well,
use it as a force for good in the World.
Respect it and it will be your friend.
Fear it and it will become your foe.
TUESDAY 15 APRIL - TODAY’S MAIN ZODIAC FOCUS:
GEMINI & VIRGO, SCORPIO, LEO
MERCURY IN ARIES SQUARES PLUTO R IN CAPRICORN. Tap into this confrontational planetary
pattern if you’re thinking of presenting your point of view about what’s wrong with
SUN IN ARIES OPPOSES CERES R IN LIBRA. We should be looking at ways in which we can
make our personal choices less selfish and more considerate towards Planet Earth
and her fragile ecological systems. After all, the consequences of Her not coping
will rebound on us.
FULL MOON IN LIBRA & TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE AT GMT 07:42. This is a very good time to
think about creating balance and equilibrium in your life. You can’t allow the effort
you put into achieving goals to obscure activities that bring you peace and contentment.
On the other hand, you can’t let pleasurable pastimes eclipse the drive to express
your full potential.
The Moon conjuncts conjuncts Ceres R leading up to the Full Moon Eclipse and makes
contact with the North Node in Libra following it. I’d saw that wishes made or spells
cast for future peace and harmony in your own relationships as well as those between
the World’s nations could be extra effective at this time.
MOON MOVES INTO SCORPIO. If you're interested in self-hynosis, this deep, intense,
potent Moon will help you find out if it works. Make sure your ethics are in place
before you begin. Persuade yourself towards positive objectives rather than pulling
yourself towards the depths of depravity. When the Moon’s in Scorpio the energy can
go either way.
WEDNESDAY 16 APRIL - TODAY’S MAIN ZODIAC FOCUS:
SCORPIO, GEMINI & VIRGO, ARIES
MOON IN SCORPIO trines Neptune, Venus & Chiron in Pisces and Jupiter in Cancer. This
lovely lunar grand trine helps us gain trust in our invisible yet deeply effective
powers of Instinct, Intuition and Imagination. They are what makes us truly and profoundly
MERCURY IN ARIES OPPOSES MARS IN LIBRA. If you’re faced with people who are selfish
yet indecisive you may need to shock them out of their shilly-shallying with some
no-nonsense, straight talking home truths.
THURSDAY 17 APRIL - TODAY’S MAIN ZODIAC FOCUS:
SCORPIO, CAPRICORN, SAGITTARIUS
MOON CONJUNCTS SATURN IN SCORPIO. Heavy in a powerful kind of way. Intense in an
effective kind of way. Serious in an authentic kind of way. Dogged in a purposeful
kind of way. Strong in a trust-your-guts kind of way. It's not much fun but it can
help get the job done, especially if you involved in meeting meaningful goals.
MOON MOVES INTO SAGITTARIUS. This is the time of the month that favours setting off
in search of new horizons. Open yourself to opportunities that offer new adventures
and experiences. Anything, whether physical, mental, emotional or spiritual, that
expands your life beyond its existing limits should be considered.
FRIDAY 18 APRIL - TODAY’S MAIN ZODIAC FOCUS:
TAURUS & LIBRA, SAGITTARIUS, LEO
VENUS IN PISCES TRINES JUPITER IN CANCER. According to traditional astrology this
combination offers the potential for good luck. Tap into it if you’re trying to win
the lottery but choose your numbers intuitively. This fortunate trine between the
2 beneficial planets did not seem to work so well for Kurt Cobain, who had the same
configuration in his birth chart. Its strong, highly sensitive female energy could
have been difficult for someone who was born a male to express. Several of his quotes
suggest he was confused about how to be a stereo-typical male “I definitely feel
closer to the feminine side of the human being than I do the male - or the American
idea of what a male is supposed to be.”
MOON IN SAGITTARIUS squares Neptune & Venus in Pisces & trines Uranus in Aries. Emotional
chaos is definitely uncomfortable, but it can create an energy that enables evolution.
Tap into it to make the break with memories that drag you back into states of self-pity
or needless nostalgia.
SUN CONJUNCTS SOUTH NODE IN ARIES. Don’t look back unless it’s to remind yourself
how much has been achieved thanks to your own efforts. “You’ve lived a life that's
full, You’ve traveled each and ev'ry highway, And more, much more than this, You
did it your way”.
SATURDAY 19 APRIL - TODAY’S MAIN ZODIAC FOCUS:
SAGITTARIUS, GEMINI & VIRGO, ARIES
MOON IN SAGITTARIUS squares Chiron in Pisces and trines Mercury & Eris in Aries.
Yet again the Moon reminds us that it’s so much more constructive to guide people
towards standing up for themselves rather than feeling sorry for them and trying
to rescue them.
MERCURY CONJUNCTS ERIS IN ARIES. This planetary combination is spot on if you want
to assert your point of view. Fighting talk and words with a feisty edge will work
well today so long as you don’t let assertiveness escalate into aggressive argument.
