NEW MOON AND PARTIAL SOLAR ECLIPSE IN TAURUS
feeling comfortable isn’t always the best thing….
This is the second New Moon in April and the first of the eclipses in 2022. It will occur at 10°28’ Taurus (antiscion 19°32’ Leo).
There are no planets in the Fire element, our intuition is down and it’s hard to get started, this latter characteristic is also confirmed by the chart having only one planet in the Cardinal signs.
Jupiter rules four of the planets in the chart and Venus rules another three, optimism and love should abound or perhaps too much confidence will [...]
MERCURY ENTERS GEMINI
Only a few hours after Pluto stations retrograde, Mercury enters one of the signs that it rules on the 29th April and stations retrograde on the 10th of May.
Mercury is obviously in his element here, a rational and agile thinker open to new ideas and experimentations, puns and intellectual flexibility are also part of the game although Mercury is also the prankster of the zodiac and here words could be used to alter the truth in some way!
A little bit of history:
Mercury in the Greek myth is associated with Hermes and he held an amazing[...]
PLUTO STATIONS RETROGRADE
exploring the dark to find the light……
Only a few hours before Mercury enters Gemini, Pluto stations retrograde.
Pluto has been in the sign of Capricorn since 2008 and this is the fourteenth retrograde period since then. The planet will station retrograde at 28°35’ (antiscion 1°25’ Sagittarius) on 29th April and backtrack to 26°07’ (antiscion 3°53’ Sagittarius) where it will station direct on 8th October.
The retrograde period will affect those persons with planets and/or angles in the Cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn [...]
FULL MOON IN LIBRA
is it “me” or “we” time for you?
The Full Moon will occur at 26°45’ Libra, a Cardinal, Air sign ruled by Venus (antiscion 3°15’ Pisces).
A predominance of Earth and Water elements characterise this Full Moon with only one planet in the Fire signs. Practicality, compassion and empathy but with little energy or intuition to actually get things started although we are definitely restless with 5 planets in the mutable signs.
Venus, dispositor of this Full Moon, is exalted in Pisces and parallel the Moon as it sextiles the Mercury-Uranus conjunction in[...]
MARS ENTERS PISCES
and tired is the new normal...
Although in its own triplicity in Pisces, Mars tends nevertheless to lose itself a little in this sign. Energies are scattered and vitality is often low which might lead to a tendency to brooding and introspection.
On the other hand, Mars in Pisces is often gifted with an unusual intuitive accuracy but frequently prefers to win by yielding itself to the other as it moves from one mood to another with great ease thus creating confusion in the adversary. Helplessness is often used as a weapon “poor me” in the hope of creating a bad[...]
JUPITER AND NEPTUNE CONJUNCTION IN PISCES
HOW BIG IS YOUR FISH TANK?
On April 12th there will be a Jupiter and Neptune conjunction at 23°59’ Pisces (antiscion 6°01’ Libra).
In the Astrological Journal, page 20 article “The Planet Jupiter” June 1961, author and astrologer Ingrid Lind wrote:
“Jupiter in Pisces has the same kindly instincts, taken a step further into philanthropy or self-sacrifice. Sometimes it is not so much self-sacrifice as self-disguise, for the infinite adaptability of Pisces makes it very much the actor Sign. The true character actor who loses [...]
MERCURY ENTERS TAURUS
slow and steady when mercury rides the bull….
Mercury enters Taurus on the 10-11th April depending on where you are in the world. Mercury in this Fixed, Earth sign can be associated with common sense, down-to-earth thinking and practical intelligence with an eye on security and self-worth issues. When contrasted in the natal chart, he could turn narrow-minded, stubborn, inflexible and suspicious of new ideas and theories. In all cases he takes his time to make decisions but once made they usually become irrevocable.
Mercury transits are fast. During the [...]
VENUS ENTERS PISCES
On the 5th of April, Venus, the planet of love, romance, harmony and values, glides into the sign of Pisces, where it is exalted. Pisces is ruled by Jupiter (traditional) and Neptune (modern).
So, we may be lost in a realm of fantasy, washed over by feelings of love and happiness, dreaming of a lottery win, happy in the company of all and capable of seducing all, not really in tune with reality. Relax whilst you can!
Venus will make the following aspects during its stay in Pisces (all times GMT):
18th April: sextile Uranus (13°49’), romance and finances may [...]
