KEYWORD for APRIL: Patience

Full Moon: Apr 11th in Libra 21 degrees
New Moon: Apr 26th in Taurus 6 degrees

APRIL will surely have you wondering “what’s next”! The month opens working with energy from the March’s New Moon that occurred in ARIES. The world is vibrating to change, confusion, chaos this month. It brings an opportunity to reorganize and rearrange the order of things.

The first week slowly ramps up with uneven energy as we manage the first retrograding planets (Saturn, then Mercury) This sets the stage for major events, news happenings, etc regarding explosions, fires, domestic violence, accidents (that usually involve fire) and all types of aggressive, impulsive actions and decisions. It includes government and government employees. There is, however, a common thread of neutral energy that may keep this from being a really tough week. You can hope!

It is important to exercise patience and consideration as emotions are easily riled. VENUS is weak the first two weeks and this may cause love interests to feel cooled down a bit. This allows time to think about the relationship and see “is it worth it”. VENUS also rules money, so financial interests may experience a few glitches. When Venus is weak, it is not the best time to have cosmetic/elective surgery or make major monetary changes. May would be a better time for these.

MERCURY rules GEMINI and VIRGO. If you have any planets in these signs or your sun or ascendant, then you will feel this prickly energy the most as MERCURY stations the first week, going retrograde on the 9th.

Venus rules money and Mercury the flow of money. The money markets may quiver the first 12 days of April – going up and down, but it seems like mostly down. This is supported by Mercury’s stationing Retrograde. When Mercury is weak, it is not a good time for signing major contracts or initiating new projects. If the contract or project has been on going and just needs to be finalized this month and you cannot push it into May, then be aware something may have to be redone or renegotiated in the future. Be overly careful of the small print and be prepared for delays and adjustments. Stick to routine activities when possible. Be patient. Wait until Venus and Mercury are strong again!

The full moon of the 11th is in the sign of LIBRA. This is really good for air signs. Jupiter, although retrograde, will assist this full moon with luck and peacefulness, hopefully offsetting any negative issues. It may be needed as that planet of unexpected, out of the blue happenings, will be opposing this joining of the full moon and Jupiter. I wish I could predict how this might unfold for each person, but it is the one energy I find that is so explosive and sudden that it would be foolish to try to do that. It is important to be prepared for “something” out of the blue, though. Emotions are involved so it can go either way, happy or sad, high or low, good or bad. With Venus retrograde also and stationing to return to full power on the 15th, we could see money markets involved as well. Stay on your toes!

Around the full moon of the 11th and especially the 7th, GEMINI may be quite lucky! Maybe you will win a lottery or perhaps be promoted. Even VIRGO seems to be in line for a promotion or big bonus.

SATURN retrograde will bring many government related projects to a stall. It also slows down anything ruled by SATURN/CAPRICORN. Looking at the big picture, this only adds more upsetting energy to the mix for this month. Hopefully, when all the balls in the air come down maybe, just maybe, we will have positive leadership and direction.

PLUTO retrograding will lessen the power of those things ruled by Pluto including Scorpio sun signs and ascendants. This happens each year. It is a good time for reflecting on where you have been the past year and where you want to go. Based on those answers, transformation can take place. Full Moon: March 12 in VIRGO at 22 degrees

Daily

April Fool’s Day starts the “engine” and it really ramps up until the full moon on the 11th - Watch events around this full moon!

Apr 01 – The moon in GEMINI promotes conversations... and gossip! Enjoy talking with friends and family, connect with friends on social media, return phone calls, etc. There is a youthful energy in the air. Enjoy it.

Apr 02 – The moon moves out of GEMINI at 10:43amET and remains VOID until 2:27pmET when it quietly moves into CANCER. VENUS backs into PISCES added to emotional sensitivities. This is a better evening to stay home and cuddle up with someone special.

Apr 03 – The moon is still in CANCER. Be careful your heart is not showing on your sleeve! The morning is okay but the afternoon has testy energy that moves into late evening. Kindness will go a long way.

Apr 04 – The Cancer moon continues until late afternoon at 4:45pmET when it enters VOID for a short time. At 6:13pmET it moves into limelight loving LEO. Enjoy music and sports this evening.

Apr 05 – The moon in LEO reflects challenging energy from MARS (in Taurus). This could create a powerful situation with leaders or those in authority. MARS is in harmony with PLUTO and this energy supports a stable foundation for getting things done in government. A collaboration might be best left for another day as the energy is acutely uneven.

Apr 06 – The moon continues in the proud sign of LEO until 8:16pmET when it enters VOID until midnight. SATURN stations RETROGRADE in the sign of Sagittarius. SATURN and government go hand in hand. When SATURN turns retrograde, it holds back some of its restrictive and authoritative energy. It could cause activities in government to slow down. Enjoy playing or watching sports!

Apr 07 – The moon shifts right after midnight into health-conscious VIRGO. The SUN and JUPITER are at odds with one another. This could again point to trouble with authority figures as well as rulers of foreign countries. VIRGO likes to work and today will require a lot of that to get things accomplished. Communications can really get messed up so be careful.

Apr 08 – The moon in VIRGO today is great for cleaning house, the car, the garage or maybe buying wholesome foods for a nutritious dinner. Be careful in conversation. Tomorrow MERCURY will be Retrograde. You may feel out of sorts, picky or just irritated today. Take a walk or maybe meditate!

Apr 09 – MERCURY goes RETROGRADE in Taurus – and will back into Aries before turning Direct on May 2. Today may be a bit tense. It will be easy to push buttons. Exercise compassion and be kind. Be VERY careful with all communications/voice mails/texts etc. Now is the time for patience. The moon enters VOID early at 4:21amET until 8:34amET when it enters LIBRA. Today is best spent alone or listening to music.

Apr 10 – The moon is in LIBRA. The energy is quite high to the point of feeling uncomfortable. This is due in part to the buildup before the FULL MOON tomorrow in LIBRA. Emotional overloads are likely. Be cautious in all communications, especially personal ones. This is a good day to see a therapist – of any kind! Maintain your balance. Avoid any arguing or conflicts. Military strategies are active.

APR 11 – FULL MOON IN LIBRA at 21 degrees, joined by Jupiter in Libra and both OPPOSED by Uranus in Aries. Wow.. the energy is high, unexpected, disruptive and emotional. This started ramping up 2 days ago and will continue to unfold the energy for a few more days. Again, the keyword is PATIENCE. You may be broad sided with information that just blows you away. You may be the one that shares the information as well. Aries, Libra, Cancer, Capricorn figure are “poked”. Leo, Sagittarius, Aquarius are energized. The moon will be VOID from 2:19pmET until 6:42pmET when it moves into Scorpio.

Apr 12 – The moon in secretive SCORPIO after a full moon may see many people withdrawing from all the hoopla and enjoying some much-needed quiet time. There is an intensity to the energy so be careful in conversations with those you love and also co-workers. It is best to work alone today if possible.

Apr 13 – The moon still in SCORPIO allows for deep thoughts and the balancing of emotions. Relationships are under the microscope. There is a bit of jealousy in the air. Be nice! Venus, ruler of love and money, is at its stationing point to turn direct on the 15th. Don’t rock the boat so much that you fall out! Bury yourself in a good book!

Apr 14 – The moon moved out of SCORPIO and into VOID at midnight last night. It moved into SAGITTARIUS at 6:27amET. The focus shifts now to foreign leaders, colleges, legalities AND TRUTH. This is Good Friday for many. It is a day of appreciation and respect. Be careful that your words are kind and compassionate. Military activities are moving forward.

Apr 15 - VENUS stations DIRECT and the moon continues in SAGITTARIUS. It is GREAT to have the ruler of love and money back in control! Keep in mind Mercury is still retrograde until May 2nd! Meditation, prayer, compromise and listening will all benefit you today.

Apr 16 – EASTER - The moon is in SAGITTARIUS until 2:26pmET when it enters VOID until 7:05pmET when I moves into CAPRICORN. The morning begins with a higher mind energy and ends with a more black and white attitude. This is a day for reflection. Take a trip, even if only in your mind. This is a day for adventure!

Apr 17 – The moon is in CAPRICORN and now is the time to pay your bills, review your budget, take care of taxes, and also checking your bank and credit card accounts for any unusual activity. In conversation with others, kind understanding goes a long way!

Apr 18 – The moon is still in CAPRICORN. This is D-day for tax returns in the U.S! ugh.. what more can be said except this is not a day to be in court either as there is usually a very stern judgement passed down.

Apr 19 – The moon thankfully moves out of CAPRICORN at 5:57amET and quickly at 6:52amET moves into the friendly sign of AQUARIUS. The Sun enters TAURUS this evening. This is good news for TAURUS suns/ascendants. It’s time to detach from the heaviness of the past few days and enjoy the fresh air!

Apr 20 – The moon in AQUARIUS is fantastic for forward thinking or “out of the box” ideas. MERCURY moves back into ARIES. Have lunch with friends. Pay close attention to your dreams as many of you have precognitive dreams. Learn from them. Plan a few video games!

Apr 21 – The moon is in AQUARIUS for part of the day until 2:23pmET when it enters VOID until 3:43pmET. There is an overload of energy going left and right, up and down. MARS moves into GEMINI for a month. This will bring energy to GEMINI sun/ascendants and also to the area of your astrological chart that has GEMINI on the cusp! This energy only comes around every 2 years so this is a great thing for GEMINI. Be careful, though as your ruler Mercury is retrograde until May 2nd!

Apr 22 – The moon still in shy and compassionate PISCES gives us a wonderful opportunity to honor Earth Day! Walk barefoot if weather permits. This is a day for fun and games and mother nature! Watch out for unexpected storms and flooding.

Apr 23 – The moon in PISCES until 5:34pmET when it is VOID until 8:32pmET when it enters ARIES. Go to church, visit a museum, walk in a flower garden, swim, donate to your favorite charity or perhaps donate your time to help those in need. Your imagination says it all!

Apr 24 – The moon in ARIES is pushy at times, impulsive and aggressive. Industries involving fires, firearm, sharp instruments, explosives, fighting and using your head (soccer), should be very careful. It seems there is an increase in domestic violence, head injuries and major accidents when the moon is in ARIES.

Apr 25 – The moon continues in ARIES until 5:53pmET when it enters VOID until 9:56pmET. It will then move into the sensual sign of TAURUS. The day moves quickly. MARS in GEMINI gives a shot of energy to ARIES. Exercise today to release any pent-up energies!!

Apr 26 – NEW MOON in TAURUS at 6 degrees. Taking care of family and responsibilities will be the focus until the next new moon in May. It is important to review your plans for the future, including your financial plans. There is no time like the present to begin if you have not already. This is a wonderful day to have a great dinner! Go out and have fun…just keep things in moderation!

Apr 27 – The moon is in TAURUS all day until 9:18pmET when it briefly enters VOID before moving into GEMINI at 9:39pmET. The energy has settled and the focus now is on practical matters. Protect your throat today. Over speaking can hurt your vocal cords! Enjoy a nice lunch with people that matter to you.

Apr 28 – The moon is in GEMINI and opens the door for more communications. With Mercury preparing to move Direct on May 2nd, the energy may feel a bit “wired”. VENUS shifts into assertive ARIES pushing the boundaries of love! Brainstorming is GREAT today. The quick wit wins!

Apr 29 – The moon is ending it’s time in GEMINI late in the afternoon at 5:28pmET. It is VOID until 9:48pmET when it enters the nurturing sign of CANCER. The energy is pretty even until late evening and then only a bit pokey!

Apr 30 – The moon in CANCER is very caring and protective. This is a quieter way to end a really crazy month. Call those you love. Have dinner with family. Stay close to home. This is the time to nurture yourself also – perhaps with a great massage!

Noon Cycles including Void of Course Moons (VOC or VOID)

New Moon: A new moon initiates energy that is very strong for four weeks or one lunar cycle but influences the year until another new moon occurs in that same sign - usually a year later. What that energy involves is indicated by the sign in which the new moon occurs and personally, which house/aspects etc are activated in your astrological chart. If the new moon is an eclipse the energy is tripled.

Full Moon: The full moon that follows two weeks after the new moon brings the energy of the new moon out into the open, or to a peak. It continues to unfold energy for two more weeks until the next new moon when the cycle begins all over again highlighting a different area of our lives. Those emotional influences can last a year.

Void Moon: When the transiting moon makes no aspect to a transiting planet, it is considered to be VOID. During these void periods - which can last a few minutes or a few days - it is best to avoid signing sign contracts, interviewing for jobs, or setting important appointments. Why? Because appointments are usually delayed or rescheduled altogether or they do not turn out as expected. Contracts have delays or have to be re-negotiated, etc. Job interviews turn out to be non-productive or empty promises are made. If, for instance, a first interview does occur and appears positive, you may be asked to start ASAP or have to interview with additional people. Individually, if you are under excellent aspects from transiting planets, this will then be a good time to proceed even though the moon is void.

I find that during void moon energy, solutions to problems can be found. Therefore, it is an excellent time for lawyers to find loopholes in cases or uncover evidence that will turn a case in their favor. Lost items are found or returned during this energy at a higher percentage than when the moon is not void. Any computer glitches that have evaded solution can suddenly be resolved. You can be lucky and win a lottery or raffle. Keep in mind that during a VOID MOON, any activities undertaken usually take TWICE as long to accomplish!!! There is an element of LUCK associated with VOID energy. Use it wisely! :-)

One thing is for certain -- always expect the unexpected during the time of a VOID of COURSE MOON and be prepared for delays or cancellations or a surprising turn of events. This can be felt as positive or negative!

Retrograde Planets in 2017

When a planet is retrograde, its energy is weakened, misunderstood or projected in an unclear manner. The sun signs, industries, activities and so forth ruled by the retrograde planet, will feel held back, restricted, misunderstood or weakened. This is also a time when you are given an opportunity to re-do, re-evaluate these areas. Many times it brings about a better solution or happier direction.

Venus Retrograde March 4, 2017 - April 15, 2017, in Aries
Venus retrograde gives an opportunity to rethink relationships, perhaps asking if it is worth it to continue. If you were separated from a romantic relationship prior to Venus going retrograde, during the retrograde period, you may decide that it is not worth being apart or losing what you had you are rethinking or reviewing, do NOT make final decisions until AFTER Venus goes direct on APR 15th. The Venus retrograde period is for getting in touch with what you really feel and want... and not a time to make the final decision. Do your research and rethinking now invested in the relationship. Venus also rules money and when retrograde presents an opportunity to review any pending financial deals or investments. No matter what. Be prepared to take appropriate steps forward after April 15th (READ ABOUT MERCURY RETROGRADE which overlaps the Venus retrograde! UGH).

It is recommended that any elective cosmetic surgery be delayed until after Venus is direct. The odds are you will be unhappy with the results if done while Venus retrograde.

Mercury Retrograde April 9, 2017 - May 2, 2017, in Taurus
When Mercury is retrograde, it seems communications, electronics, contracts, projects – all hit a bump in the road. Communication equipment can go hay wire, electronics are challenged, emails, texts, etc. are erroneously sent, weak relationships break up (business and personal), and transportation is stressed. The flow of money goes up and down or slows completely. Always watch the stock markets. This is NOT the time to initiate new projects or endeavors, especially personal relationships. The retrograde period should focus on OLD business/relationships or projects already in motion before the retrograde cycle began. The Mercury retrograde period allows for resolution of problems. Agreements can be re-negotiated. Just be careful with any of the “numbers” in the paperwork. If possible delay the final signing of a contract until after Mercury is direct to avoid complications. This is true even if you have outstanding aspects in your astrological chart! Save major purchases for when Mercury goes direct. As you know, the week prior to Mercury stationing retrograde is when the energy seems erratic and irritating. Many times this is when you get a sign that something is breaking down, i.e. electronic equipment, car, etc. It seems the energy BEFORE Mercury retrogrades is more tangled and harder to manage than when it is stationing at the end to go direct again. PATIENCE and COMPROMISE…

Jupiter Retrograde February 6, 2017 - June 9, 2017, in Libra
Jupiter will pull back from 23 degrees LIBRA to 13 LIBRA. If you have planets or your Ascendant, Jupiter will touch those planets again. Jupiter is the planet known for being kind and generous. It offers a certain amount of protection in the area of your life (astrological chart) it is touching. While it is retrograde, it loses some of its strength. Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius. Jupiter is a benefic planet bringing a cushion in times of falls, luck in times unexpected. It is like having an angel on your shoulder when it is in your sun sign. Jupiter can also bring pending legal matters to resolution or bring in new law/legal issues. Religions, higher institutions of learning, foreign places and people, judges and court rulings are all ruled by Jupiter. When it is retrograde, it is active just not as strong. If you are involved in any of the above-mentioned subjects, be aware these could slow down or be put on hold until Jupiter returns to full power in June. This slowdown allows time for review of what has already occurred. The sign of Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter. If you are born under this sign, you may feel as though you are a little slower than usual during this retrograde period. Use the time wisely to “catch up” and be ready to push forward once the retrograde period is over.

Saturn Retrograde April 6, 2017 - August 25, 2017, in Sagittarius
Saturn rules the sign of Capricorn. It also rules the activities involved with government, authority figures, responsibilities and the elderly. Now is the time to think about your budget, commitments, etc that started back in Sep 2015. Are there any changes you want to make? Double check all credit card balances, bank accounts, and any legal papers you may have signed. This is a really positive time review your budget for beneficial changes. Now is not the time for committing to a relationship or additional responsibilities. Slow down. Review. If you are having any major dental surgery done during this retrograde, it would be wise to find the best energy day possible before you do it. Remember when a planet if retrograde, it is weak. Saturn rules the teeth!

Pluto Retrograde April 20, 2017 - September 28, 2017, in Capricorn
Pluto takes many, many years to transit a sign (planet or not!). The transit of it through a sign will create an impact that affect generations. It is considered to be a heavy weight when it comes to banking or financial institutions. Having Pluto retrograde also pulls back some of its great influence from Scorpio sun signs and Scorpio ascendants as it is the ruler of Scorpio. Pluto gets along really well with Jupiter. By the end of April, both planets will be retrograde. This could create challenges with foreign interests or countries, money, executive/legislative branches, banks, educational institutions and even pipelines! Reassessment of pipelines, tunnels, hoses, caves, etc makes good use of this retrograde energy. Scorpio sun signs and Scorpio ascendants may not have the gusto you crave, but you can still get a lot accomplished.

Transiting Planets in 2017

If a slower moving planet connects with one of your personal planets such as your Sun, Venus, Mercury or Mars, it will initiate a reaction or event regarding the planet that is touched. Example: transiting Jupiter connects with your Venus. You could simply have a wonderful couple of "feeling good" days while this is active or maybe win a lottery, fall in love with someone or something, have a face-lift, settle a legal case, or set up a new banking account. It is helpful to know if this will be happening so you can plan better and be prepared to make it a good "connection". Here are the slower moving planets and the signs they will be travelling through in 2017:

Jupiter in Libra until October 2017. Jupiter is the fastest moving of the slower planets, staying approximately one year in each sign. It takes approximately 12 years for Jupiter to travel through all 12 signs. The first, the Libra sun signs will have this “guardian angel” energy for a full year. Until October 2017, Jupiter sends positive energy to the arts, music, relationships, agreements, and even make-overs. Because LIBRA is a cardinal sign, those born under the sign of Capricorn, Aries and Cancer or who have planets in these signs, will experience the effects of this transit at some point as Jupiter contacts your sun sign. The effects could be pleasant with opportunities knocking at your door or you can be feel frustrated or irritated. The choice is really yours. Use the energy in a positive way! In October, Jupiter will quietly move into Scorpio to finish the rest of 2017. Watch for more on this change of energies in the coming October’s forecast!

Saturn in Sagittarius until December 2017. The last time Saturn was in Sagittarius was late 1985 into early 1988. It takes about 2.5 years to transit one sign. It is now Sagittarius’ turn to feel the structuring, disciplining and in some cases restricting energy of this transit. November born Sagittarius have this transit in their rear view mirror now. Yay! Those born December 10 – 22 (and those with any planets in Sagittarius 21 degrees and higher) will at some point during 2017, feel this transit. By the end of this year Saturn will complete its transit of Sagittarius and move into the sign of Capricorn in December. Saturn’s energy helps us better manage our talents and urges. It can bring unexpected responsibilities or even health issues that require discipline and focus to overcome. Commitments made during a transit of Saturn to a personal planet (sun, moon, mercury, venus, mars) have endurance energy/longevity. Negatively, they can feel like heavy responsibilities! But it is not a bad energy for a good marriage or business partnership if all other aspects are supportive. This is the time to stay current with your medical exams especially if you are born under the sign of Sagittarius, have personal planets in Sagittarius, have Sagittarius rising, have Sagittarius on your work/health house (6th). If you have planets in the sign of Gemini at 21 degrees or higher, Saturn will, at some point, create an opposing energy. This can bring limitations (including medical conditions) or simply push you to organize and discipline your activities. It CAN, at times, feel really burdensome – even depressing - having Saturn in your sun sign (or opposing it. Given the ability to focus and accomplish now, use Saturn’s positive side to finish up projects or goals that have been set aside. Take on any added responsibilities as a learning experience that will benefit you. Hard work is usually required when Saturn is in your sign so be prepared to work hard and be rewarded accordingly. Remember, work smarter not harder.

Uranus, in Aries until 2018, will continue transiting the sign of Aries moving from 20 degrees to 28 degrees Aries. It will retrograde back to 24 degrees by the end of 2017. If you have a planet in your astro chart at 20 - 28 degrees Aries, Libra, Cancer or Capricorn, Uranus will energize that planet sometime in 2017. Libra sun signs born Oct 10 - 23 will feel this energy as an opposing force. It is challenging but not as aggressively challenging as those born in the sign of Aries will feel. You could suddenly decide to quit a job, seek a divorce, change your hair style, or even relocate when this happens. The energy of freedom loving Uranus is not predictable except to say it is unpredictable. Sudden changes, accidents, changes in beliefs, strong desire to be free, etc can all be part of this energy. Be careful in your desire to feel free, to break the rules, to make radical changes, especially if you are aged 41-43. Remember, once the transit completes, you will be living with the consequences of your actions and decisions! Uranus is sending kind vibes to Aquarius and Gemini but challenges Libra, Cancer, Capricorn, and of course, Aries.

Neptune, in Pisces until 2025, will move from 9 degrees to 14 degrees Pisces but during the year it retrogrades ending 2017 direct at 11 degrees. It is very slow moving. Be cautious in business dealings and LOVE as Neptune energy can be evasive and deceiving you before you know it. Neptune has a strong spiritual side and connects to the higher realms. It also rules all liquids and the oceans, water, floods, drugs, hospitals, jails, bodily fluids including perspiration! Perhaps if your planets are contacted by this transiting Neptune, you will find yourself returning to church, restoring your faith, being drawn to the beach, or finding that true love! Watch out, though! Make sure you remove your rose colored glasses before making major decisions. Virgo sun signs may find themselves working with Pisces sun signs or changing careers to work in a Pisces industry i.e., oil, ink, ocean liners, entertainment, singing, children, any music or acting, etc. Virgo sun signs will feel the opposing energy creating feelings of vagueness and mystery. Enjoy this opportunity to not only dream but to also see your dreams come true.

Pluto, in Capricorn, will transit 16, 17, 18, 19 degrees of Capricorn in 2017. Those born Jan 6-11, Apr 5-10, Jul 8-12 and Oct 9-12 will most likely feel this transit more directly. In an astrological chart if you have personal planets at 16-19 degrees of Capricorn, Aries, Cancer or Libra, you will feel the transformative power of Pluto as it interacts with that planet. It can involve corruption, drugs, sexual desires, skin and teeth issues, government planning, the disciplining parent, deaths, and big business to name a few. Pluto in Capricorn helps define economic changes that will be beneficial and strong. Capricorn rules big business and government and government officials. In 2017, Pluto in Capricorn will provide the impetus to release or destroy anything that has served its purpose in our lives. The changes being made will be long lasting ones as Capricorn is cautious, practical and very responsible. A positive use of the energy would be to take the initiative and change areas of your life that need improvement – before it is done for you! Emotionally you could embark on a new way of looking at life. A word to the wise should be sufficient. Virgo and Taurus – fellow earth signs of Capricorn – should find the transformations and changes, very positive and easier to integrate than other sun signs.

May the force remain strong with you throughout 2017!
