April has arrived in a rush in comparison to March. How is it possible I am already typing up April’s forecast? Aren’t there 31 days in March; but then again, as I type this it is the 31st.. le sigh. “How is this possible? Can things please slow down? And how much time do I have left?” is the general feeling all month long. There won’t be anything slow about this month and some might exhaust themselves before the month is through.
On the 3rd, Mercury enters Aries for a short stay, and thank the Gods that it is short! Tempers will run high, bluntly speaking will be the new norm, not really listening to others when being spoken to, and having the drive to go after what you claim you want, and claiming it as yours is the likely outcome of this transit. Be forewarned, everyone will be feeling this transit. Instead of people being their usual reserved selves, they will be bold as fuck. This could come off as arrogance, aggressiveness, and even carelessness for those you are conversing with. Selfishness isn’t that far behind either, stay mindful and aware.
On the 6th, Jupiter semi-square Chiron making the day feel like it's up to no good. This day could bring complications to an already complicated situation. You are being shown to see the bigger picture and not allow your emotions to get the best of you. If the trigger is still unhealed today’s alignment will set the motion to conquer whatever is causing the trigger. No sense in resisting today, instead, embrace the uncertainty and surrender to the healing light being offered.
On the 9th, Saturn trine True Node giving us a higher perspective on a certain matter we could not see the good in. Today, we will come to understand what it means to have a silver lining on a seemingly black cloud. Today’s realization will bring the clarity so many need in order to continue onwards in their own personal growth. You came this far, now is time to soar with the wind.
The 11th is a day of power and the day adds to 11; this is a day of Magic. First, we have Pluto sesquiquadrate True Node liberating us from a childhood wound we carried for too long. This deep seated wound stems from a childhood trauma preventing closure at this time. Today, however, the Universe is supplying the key to understanding why certain things have halted inner peace. The clarity gained today leads to the empowerment you have been desiring.
On this same day, the new moon will be in Aries. This new moon is no joke. This is definitely the moon you want to work with as it will initiate the beginning of something new in your life. At this time, there is a stellium in Aries as there are several planets and asteroids in Aries. Anything that is started today will be for the long haul and anything that does end today will not be reborn. It will end so something new can begin. The colors to work with today are black, pink, and red. Be confident in what you are doing today, and trust that it’s all working out for your highest potential. Today is your day to claim your power! Remember He-Man, “I got the power”!
Juno retrograde Sagittarius the following day on the 12th. Here the Goddess of marriage, loyalty, and contracts will have us all assessing the binds that we are in. What exactly have these contracts taught us? Who has been loyal? Have you been loyal? This transit will help to rid the bonds that hold no meaning and usher in those that do. Strengthening and severing bonds is the theme at this time. Trust it is all happening for the highest of good.
Venus enters Taurus on the 14th for some much needed rest. Venus is happy in her own home of Taurus. Comfort, luxury, and doting over yourself will be priority and this could also be said for those in partnerships. Showing others appreciation for their efforts towards you will not go without notice. Saying yes during this time will open you up to things never experienced before. Feeling stuck or bored will be a thing of the past. Now is a time to feel appeased and comforted by those you dote on as well.
On the 19th, Mercury enters Taurus slowing down the pace in communication. This does not mean all communication will halt, it does mean more attention is being given to what and how it’s being said. Being scrutinizing or being scrutinized will be the norm for the next coming of weeks. Jealousy can be the leading cause for the majority of communication, but don’t let it be the only thing leading the conversation. Take advantage of this time to get to know what you want to know. Paying close attention to detail will give you the advantage in all future dealings.
The 20th Vesta is direct in Virgo, during this retrograde many were bringing order to their house. The time allocated during this retrograde was advantageous for those who utilized their time wisely. Attention to detail and taking the time to do things a certain way was the key during this retrograde. Now that Vesta is moving forward once again, one can continue forward with no annoyances. You are now free to move forward as you see fit. Everything is in place and in your favor.
Mars enters Cancer on the 23rd... Please, prepare yourself for this! Do keep in mind though the Martian energy does not mind being mothered, but it does mind being smothered or told what to do. The energy here is quite tricky and manipulative. One day you are all love and light, and the next day you are hell on wheels. Deep breaths and counting to 100 will benefit many. Do your best not to be overbearing, possessive, emotional, or defensive. Remember, when you want something done and done right, you gotta be nice about it and perhaps even firm about it. Be nice at this time. If you find yourself needing to cry, it’s alright to do so. You will feel so much better when Mars moves on in June and what you can do at this time is to incorporate baths into your day to day and visit the ocean. It will help in keeping you level headed.
The full moon in Scorpio is on the 26th helping to further empower ourselves. Whatever darkness has accumulated during this time or whatever darkness was still holding onto you for dear life will be eradicated with this moon. This powerful moon will illuminate the light once and for all on whatever darkness has kept you enclosed. Set yourself free today; acknowledge your darkness, claim it as yours, and find the balance within. Working with the colors black, gold, and white will illuminate and empower all ritual work done with this moon.
And lastly, Pluto retrograde Capricorn on the 27th adding more power to the full moon of the previous night. However, the power being felt during this retrograde isn’t only from the Scorpio full moon, but from the whole month of April and onwards. For the next five months while Pluto is in retrograde, the shifts and transformations transpiring will be very powerful. You won’t recognize yourself or your life once this retrograde is over. It is definitely not for the weak minded or heart. However, even if you find yourself weak, you will be so much more stronger when this is over. Strength and endurance is the name of the game at this time.
April is a month of action and fast pace movement. Hesitation will not serve and will only make things worse. Just keep moving forward you got this and the Universe has got you! :-)
