What better way to begin a new month than with a New Moon? The New Moon in Aries, happening on April 1st, gives us the kick in the ass many of us need to start new and exciting things. With Jupiter conjunct Neptune in Pisces going on simultaneously, we'll be able to see the big picture, allowing us to keep going well after our initial drive to begin has ended.
On April 5th, Venus will move into Pisces where she's exalted and treated like the queen she is. This transit allows us to feel love on a grander scale. Love for humanity, charitable acts, philanthropy and equality for all are themes for this beautiful transit.
Mercury moves into Taurus on April 10th, which means our thoughts and communications will become more practical, down-to-earth, and realistic. This transit is conducive to being stubborn, hard-headed, narrow-minded, or conservative in your thinking. It's not all bad, though. This transit also fosters conversations centered around building solid foundations, amassing assets, and things that we value.
On April 14th, Mars will join its counterpart Venus in Pisces. This transit is marked by a motivation to pursue spiritual and emotional endeavors. What's absolutely lovely about this one is that we are more inclined to put the needs of others ahead of our own. Together with Venus, this transit fosters peace, which the world so desperately needs at this time.
Next up, we have the Full Moon in Libra on April 16th. The theme is short and sweet: relationships. Specifically, this Moon will highlight any imbalances in our significant relationships. With a focus on "me" vs. "we", this Moon affords us the opportunity to create new structures for our relationships so they're built to last.
On April 19th, Taurus season officially begins when the Sun transits into this down-to-earth and dependable sign. Our focus will be directed toward our five senses, material things, and work. Feeling stable and secure are characteristics of this sign and will likely be at the forefront of our thoughts for the next month.
Pluto, the planet of profound transformation, goes retrograde on April 29th. Retrograde = reflect (among other "re" words), which means that we may be revisiting certain deeply seated emotions from our past. From now until October, we'll all have the opportunity for some deep soul-searching.
That same day, Mercury moves into its home sign of Gemini. At this time, expect your mental activities to be on fire, your curiosity to be at an all-time high, and your phone to be blowing up. This transit is great for learning a new technical skill or doing research. Keep in mind, though, that with the Sun currently in Taurus, you'll likely want to stick to what you know and be very stubborn about it.
Finally, we end the month on a high note with a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Taurus on April 30th. Eclipses are the Universe's way of rearranging things in our lives and New Moon solar eclipses add the necessary people, places, and things we need to have a successful future. This particular eclipse will bring rapid changes concerning the things we value and work toward. Think of it this way...the eclipse put give us all the tools so we can literally build the life of our dreams.
