Emotions may be in a tight struggle between past attachments to material security and freedom to be as you are. To get unstuck from the past without burning all of your bridges, a decisive choice may be required, which brings harmony and healing to the soul.

For some, laughter or sarcastic humor may, ironically, serve to heal deep wounds – but others may not appreciate it.

Emotional nurturing may come through social status, or belonging to a well-established, structured community, subculture, or culture that allows room for individuality or progressive ideas within its walls of security. Watch for black and white thinking, erratic emotions, or shock and awe strategies. Emotional constriction may eventually burst unexpectedly, leading to clarity or cold detachment.

Health and Body

There’s a beautiful opportunity for healing, especially healing of the body and soul. But it may require you to relax control and lighten up. Unconventional health solutions may show up if you can let yourself live a little.

Or, you might consider turning your fitness protocol into a form of meditation.

Healthcare may especially focus on: Extremities, Third Eye or Pineal Gland through April 27 or the Energy System, Nervous System, Migraines/Auras through June 2026

Communications may be all out of whack, creating internal conflict that requires a choice to be made for resolution. There may be underlying simmering conflict with a mother figure that may be tempting to ignore in order to maintain a false sense of harmony. But redemption can be found in a soul connection or a deep emotional connection.

Home and Property

Tyranny, Demanding Rage, Violence, Mutiny

“… a person in whose life much sedition will prevail, whose affairs will be marred by his own violence, and whose house will be dismembered through strife, in whom wrath will effect great evils , and whose force will be turned against himself….” — La Volasfera by Sepharial, The 360 symbolic degrees and their interpretation

Failing to cooperate with others results in self-inflicted consequences. Arrogant independence or tyrannical authority creates its own downfall. Conflict over natural resources or material resources. Political incidents involving expansion in ocean or navy. Fast-changing or unexpected weather conditions.

In some places, the atmosphere may be electric or there may be unexpected or extreme weather patterns. Conflict in the ocean, air, or vehicular incidents. Little or no respect for the feminine, although the feminine holds wisdom and even power.

Intensified empathy or compassion through May 10. It may be difficult to tell the difference between your own thoughts and feelings, and that of others. Exemplifying compassion is in favor.

Incidents related to a pandemic, drugs, chemicals, gas, oil, or space through May 10.

Success in emergency or rescue efforts after May 10.

Bans, blockades, sanctions, mandates, or lockdowns may fail or be lifted through Mar 20 and May 10, with exceptions along the way.

Plagues, Aggressive Virus through May 10. Freedom from lockdowns after May 10.

Public protests may be in the spotlight Feb 14 – Mar 17, April 12, and May 29 this year.

Conflict may be especially volatile around March 21, April 5, and May 29.

Supply chain disruptions through 2025.

In some places, there may be incidents involving increasing crime, crimes against the vulnerable, mass violence, shocking or unusual conflict or fights, repeat crimes, theft, political or religious wars, social equality issues, immigration issues, vehicular violence or collisions, explosions, downed aircraft, vehicle theft, issues in transferring artillery or material resources, sanctions, cyberwarfare, biochemical weapons, oil, gas, chemicals, air pollution, or the atmosphere… through June 17.

Refined capabilities and milestones of success may occur around April 5, April 12, May 29, and June 17 after immense challenges.

You might want to take the next couple of days off. You might benefit from a “staycation” or a meditation retreat. Watch for communications errors.


Jupiter | Sagittarius
  • Sun in Taurus: Decans 1 and 2 Major Uptrend, Decan 3 Downtrend
  • Full Moon in Libra until Apr 30: Conflicting or indecisive downtrend
  • Jupiter in Pisces until May 10, 2022: Inflation, rising interest rates, high oil prices or fortune from crude oil, fortune from creative investments, speculation exaggerated or unreliable, large company purchases not advised, extended or mass sell offs, uptrend due to inflation or market bubble after a crash
  • Pluto in Capricorn until Mar 23, 2023: Immense underground wealth of an elite may collapse, long term investing, immense underground wealth, ultra slow market movement, tightening of corporate or government regulations
  • Taurus Scorpio Nodal Axis: Long term investing, material integrity and stability in favor
  • Uranus in Taurus: Digital currency, new financial structures or material assets in favor but may require long hard work or excruciating challenges
  • Neptune in Pisces: Slog but speculative risk in favor

Currently, finances may be favorable for making a bold change before April 30. Some may want to sell before April 30 during a rise, and buy back end of June during a low. Ultimately, consider hodling investments with integrity. Financial scams collapse while solid, stable investments ultimately pay off.

Immense underground wealth that isn’t visible to the public may lead to structural collapse or tightened regulations. Inflation, rising interest rates, high gas and oil prices may be a theme through May 10, 2022.

The U.S. Pluto return is currently taking place through 2023 and beyond, collapsing traditional finance structures to be replaced by regulated digital currency.

2022: Long term investing or hodling in companies with high quality production is in favor. In this case, downtrends or volatility may be bullish or corrective, purging schemes and scams.
