With a self-focused, first quarter moon squaring off planets which are already squaring off each other… ego desires can shake up financial or relationship security.
So let’s talk about security. What REALLY makes you feel safe and secure?
Security doesn’t always come from playing it safe. Trying to live modest or humble can backfire if your true heart is somewhere else.
Unnecessary constraints can result in physical tension or anxiety. Likewise, repressed self-expression can drive a person to egotistical extremes in search for freedom – leading to financial or relationship issues which could’ve been avoided.
Sometimes, REAL security requires you to let go, let it all hang out, or live more carefree….
As long as your leap of faith remains within significant parameters, you know it’s the right move. In other words, take the leap but avoid high risk situations.
With FIVE planets in Taurus, we have a lot of fixed, earth energy now. A Virgo Moon on Thursday wants to be more grounded and practical. Just make sure you’re working toward the RIGHT thing that truly inspires you.
INSPIRATION can keep you going LONG TERM no matter what challenges show up along the way. You can look for the thing that INSPIRES you and trust that.

As the pile up of planets leave bold, audacious Aries for sensible, placid…Taurus, actions begin to recede.
Aries was the ambitious fire to start something new. Taurus says, “Okay, but how will we pay for it? What needs to be sacrificed?“
It’s an excellent week to slow down, enjoy people and things you love, refine the plan, and GET TO WORK.
If you were able to accept change rather than resist it, inspired action carries you forward so that you can FULLY ENJOY hard work. Otherwise, you might feel unmotivated or stuck in a rut.
Toward the end of the week, Mars in Cancer is a little irritable and defensive, potentially turning domestic finances, possessions, and relationships into an inquisition. Who or what is PROVEN to be truly dependable and creditable? This is important to know. Look into conflict to see the fear and insecurity driving it, then become aware of what gives you TRUE security.
Overall, this week is best for chilling out, enjoying a glass of wine with loved ones, and getting the job done. Revel in the calm steady routine that is your BEST LIFE.
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 boundaries so you have space to meditate or go within. This allows you to experience a beautiful transformation that liberates you – yet also establishes new, more authentic commitments.
Conscious Choices and Life Changes
After the year 2020 uprooted foundations and outdated securities, 2021 is the year for exciting change, especially as it might concern your career or relocating to a new home. Multiple new beginnings and new cycles present opportunities for major structural change.
Final choices made by the end of the year establishes new life experiences for the long term – so choose wisely. You might not know exactly what’s ahead but that’s okay. Dare to follow your true heart and you’ll be glad you did!
