The recent Mercury retrograde was about becoming more assertive. It felt like diving with the brakes on… the feeling of pushing ahead, while further research and evaluation was required. The patience we developed was hard won. It may have taken the form of false starts, broken agreements and self-scrutiny. Finally, on April 15th, we get the green light to move forward.
The Sabian Symbol for the New Moon is 27 Aries, “A Lost Opportunity Regained” Does this highlight a creative goal, job, relationship or something else for you? Whatever the topic, visualization and faith speed with the recovery. We need to dig deep and turn our lost opportunity into a reality.
Saturn going retrograde helps us use focus and determination. It inspires us to make things happen. With planets moving past Uranus we have more than one opportunity for a breakthrough, and staying home will be increasingly difficult. Venus in Gemini urges us to network, get out in nature and wear less gloomy colors. Hey, what do you expect from all this Spring like weather?
Nothing is predictable with the explosive energies of late April. Radical changes are possible, and by months end you may wonder how different your life was just a few short weeks before. We’re often pushed to the edges of our comfort zone to realize we’re wearing a straight jacket. If you don’t feel the risk of adventure, you may be strapping yourself in for another round of confinement.
Mercury direct helps us find our voice in new situations where boundaries are important. Letting things slide will chip away at your self-worth. Accountability and courage lead the way. Action oriented Mars is providing plenty of motivation to stay on track with projects. With Saturn retrograde you’ll find inventive ways to structure time to your best advantage.
The transformative energy of Pluto/Mars around the 25-26th will literally blow things out of the water. Watch this explosive energy and keep a cool head. The Sabian Symbol is 22 Capricorn, “A General Accepting Defeat Gracefully” The thought of a war or another depression (Uranus in Taurus) seems unfathomable. I’m rooting for the practical mystic. Let’s pray for a silver lining in difficult times. Peace talks and agreements vs destruction.
