ASTRO THIS MONTH
Moving Forward Consciously Into The New
The overall theme for this month is becoming aware of who or what you really love and value. True passion is the energy force to break out of old ruts and embark on a new life track.
All planets are direct with an Aries stellium as they transition into Taurus. This is an excellent opportunity to move forward with new projects, plans, or relationships, even if you don’t know all the details. Channel nervous energy into courage to make the jump!
But it’s important to jump into the new – cautiously – and avoid spinning your wheels while Mars is in Gemini until April 23. There will be plenty of reality checks along the way as multiple planets trigger the Saturn Uranus square throughout the month. It’s okay to feel uncertain. Break free from old patterns, but avoid mindless risk-taking.
Simply take things one step at a time.
When Mars is in Cancer April 23, watch for unnecessary conflict caused by hidden or buried anger. Consider channeling anger or rage into new projects to express your own thoughts, ideas, and emotions that have been lying dormant. Respecting your own thoughts and feelings brings awareness to TRUE relationships so you can connect with the right people.
A Full Moon in Scorpio on April 26 may feel especially intense and confusing as the Moon opposes or squares influential planets in Taurus. Establish your boundaries in order to meditate or go within and experience a beautiful transformation that liberates you – yet also establishes new, more authentic commitments.
