On April 30th there will be a Full Moon at 9°39’ in the Fixed, Water sign of Scorpio.
This lunation squares the transiting nodal axis which also means that there will be a Moon “wobble”*, a condition occurring when the Sun is transiting square or in conjunction to the nodes and this could bring to the fore supercharged emotions from deep inside.
The dispositors of the Moon in Scorpio (Mars, traditional and Pluto, modern) are both in Capricorn with Mars just separating from a very recent conjunction to Pluto, the worst might be over and now we need to process it at a deep emotional[...]
exploring the dark to find the light……
Pluto has been in the sign of Capricorn since 2008 and this is the tenth retrograde period since then. The planet will station retrograde at 21° 17’ on 22nd April and backtrack to 18°45’ where it will station direct on 30th September.
The retrograde period will affect those persons with planets and/or angles in the Cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn between 25°-15° (allow a 5° orb applying and a 3° separating, Pluto transits are long). Look to the house axis where Pluto is transiting in your chart for indications of [...]
a time for revision before moving on
Saturn will station retrograde on the 17th of April at 9°09’ Capricorn and return to direct motion at 2°32’ Capricorn on the 5th of September.
At the start and at the end of each retrograde period the planet gradually slows down almost to a halt. So, if you have planets or angles between 7-11° and 0-5° degrees of cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) then these will be particularly affected by Saturn over a period of roughly 15 days at each station. During stationary periods planets seemingly have more impact. The antiscion point[...]
full steam ahead under this fiery sky?
There will be a New Moon at 26° 02’ of Aries, a Cardinal, Fire sign on the 16th of April only two days after Mercury stations to turn direct in Aries (4°47’) and one day before Saturn stations to turn retrograde (9°57’) in the sign of Capricorn.
This New Moon, as the first sign in the zodiac, symbolizes the starting point of a new journey, a rise to the next level. We need to leave our comfort zone and discover new pathways and destinations.
As well as the above-mentioned two planets stationing in close proximity this New Moon is also [...]
After 8 years in Pisces (April 2010 to April 2018) Chiron enters Aries on 17th April 2018, moves back in Pisces on 26th Sept 2018 and then moves permanently into Aries on 18th Feb 2019 until May 2027.
Whilst in watery Pisces the planetoid gave us the opportunity to feel our own pain and grief as well as that of others. It also enabled those with an inclination (or vocation) as a healer to help others overcome their pain and discomfort.
In Aries, Chiron takes on the properties of this Fire sign with its “I exist” assertiveness and inner sense of vibrancy, bravely facing its own wounds[...]
