Astrology Transits July 2020 – Action and Energy

If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.Nikola Tesla

The planetary movements in July seem to fit all the requirements of energy, frequency and vibration.  Mars, the planet of anger, action, energy and aggression, moves from nebulous Pisces into its home sign of action-oriented Aries.

In addition, we experience the third summer eclipse at 14 degrees Cancer on July 4th or 5th (depending on your location).  The energy of this eclipse activates the Cancer/Capricorn frequencies and energizes the concept of home and security (Cancer) versus our place in the world (Capricorn).

Finally, we have the second conjunction of Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn bringing an expansion (Jupiter) of our focus on government, rules and restriction (Capricorn).

Those of you with early-degree planets in the Cardinal signs (Cancer, Capricorn, Libra and Aries), and Scorpio will feel the energizing effect the most.

June 28:  Mars Enters Aries.  Mars Sextile Saturn at Zero Degrees Aries/Aquarius.  When a planet enters a new sign at zero degrees of a sign its influence is amplified in the new sign.  Mars is very strong in its own sign of Aries. Combining Mars’ zero-degree ingress with its Arian strength gives us a strong fiery, active Arian feel to the next 6-plus months.

While Mars was in Pisces, many of us felt extra tired, confused and lethargic. Mars in a water sign is unable to express freely.  Now with Mars in a fire sign, we will hopefully feel a little more energetic.  Mars in Aries gives us the oomph and courage to push ahead with our desires.  The main downside of Mars’ Aries journey is that anger and aggression will be even more freely expressed.  We would all be wise to transmute our anger into passion for a cause or desired accomplishment.

Mars sextile Saturn retrograde in Capricorn is an excellent aspect to accomplish something that you have been putting off. It brings a burst of action and energy (Mars) tempered with the need to proceed slowly and realistically (Saturn).

July 1:  Retrograde Jupiter Conjunct Retrograde Pluto at 24 Degrees Capricorn.  This is the second of three historic conjunctions of Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn. Jupiter only conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn every 250 years.  The last time this occurred was in 1771 during the time of the American and French revolutions. It certainly explains the feeling that we are experiencing a historic turn of events!

This conjunction expands a lot (Jupiter) of very intense (Pluto) energy.  Jupiter relates to cultural movements and truth as you see it.  Though Jupiter conjunct Pluto  can be challenging, it is unparalleled for furthering spiritual growth.  The next exact conjunction will be on November 11, 2020, but the effects will be in play all year.

Saturn Retrograde Re-enters Capricorn Until December 17, 2020.  Saturn’s influence from the beginning of the year until March 21, when it was in Capricorn, will once again be brought out and looked at.  Hopefully, it will help show the mistakes made in stopping COVID-19 and allow re-evaluation of our path forward.

July 4 or 5: Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 14 Degrees Capricorn/Cancer.  This is the last eclipse of the summer eclipse series.  It is an emotional, intense eclipse due to the Cancer Sun square Mars.  Out-of-control emotions in opposition to authority and authority figures is one likely outcome of this volatile eclipse.  Any full Moon in Cancer is always exceptionally emotional and we tend to react from an emotional level.  Sun in Capricorn is rational rather than emotional.  When the Cancer Moon interacts with the Capricorn Sun our emotions may go back and forth like a teeter totter — rational like the Capricorn Sun then emotional like the Cancer Moon and then repeat. Stay grounded.

July 7-9: Mercury Square Mars at 5 to 7 Degrees of Cancer/Aries.  Fast and targeted thinking are benefits of this aspect. However, the tendency may be to speak without thinking.  Slow down and think before you speak.

July 11-13: Sun Trine Neptune at 19-20 Degrees Cancer/Pisces.  Sun trine Neptune can bring a few days of confusion and fatigue.  Emotional family matters may be a prominent source of confusion and worry.  However, for those of you who are tuned into a higher power or divine guidance, this is an especially enlightening time.  Messages from the “other side” may enter your consciousness.

July 12: Mercury Turns Direct at 15 Degrees Pisces.  A lot of the fuzzy communication will start to clear up, especially after Mercury exits its shadow period on July 23rd.

July 15:  Sun Enters Cancer.  The emphasis turns to home and family.  Nurture yourself and loved ones.

July 13-16: Sun Opposition Jupiter and Pluto at 21-24 Degrees Cancer/Capricorn.  Can you say “power play?”  Oppositions always show opposing points of view.  When you add in powerful Pluto, expansive Jupiter, and Sun trine Neptune we have a perfect picture of confusion meant to obfuscate and/or control.  Pay attention not only to what is obvious, but also to what is going on behind the scenes.  What you hear on the news may have hidden meanings during this strong opposition. Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn feel such challenges strongly.

July 19-21: Sun Opposite Saturn at 27 to 29 Degrees Cancer/Capricorn.  Conflicts relating to authority are dominant during the transit of the Sun in Cancer opposite Saturn in Capricorn.  We can see this in the news stories relating to Black Lives Matter and the rules (or lack thereof) regarding the coronavirus. Decisions on whether to stay at home or return to the workplace and/or public life will be front and center under this opposition.

July 27:  Mercury Square Mars at 16 Degrees Cancer/Aries.  Problems, irritation, arguments and mechanical breakdowns are some of the possible manifestations of this troublesome, but thankfully, fast moving transit.

July 30:  Mercury Opposition Jupiter at Cancer/Capricorn and Mercury Trine Neptune at Degrees Cancer/Pisces.  Over stimulated thinking processes and over confident opinions are a hallmark of Mercury opposition Jupiter. Let go of the need to solve the world’s problems. Instead, focus on the use of your imagination and your artistic and intuitive abilities (Mercury trine Neptune).

Astrology Transits June 2020 – Eclipse Season

“Three things cannot be long hidden.  The Sun, the Moon and the truth.” ― Buddha


Oh, what a month full of exceptional planetary energy!  As I am writing this, I’m looking out at a gorgeous spring day with new life, lush greenery and a sunny sky overlain by dark, foreboding rain clouds.  This scene feels like a metaphor for the upcoming month. The planetary highlights of the month are:

  • the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on June 5 in the signs of Sagittarius/Gemini,
  • the New Moon Solar Eclipse on June 21 in the sign of Cancer,
  • Mercury turns retrograde on June 18 at 15 degrees Cancer,
  • the ongoing squares between the Sun and Venus in Gemini to Mars and Neptune in Pisces, and
  • The North and South Nodes changing sign from Cancer/Capricorn to Gemini/Sagittarius.

I don’t even know where to begin with all of this energy.  However, the emphasis is on communication, ideas, and being heard versus an impatient, angry energy (Mars), overlain by a need to stay calm and to determine the truth before we act. Add to the mix ongoing squares between planets in communicative Gemini and planets in nebulous, foggy Pisces and you end up with a mess of misinformation (Sun in Gemini) and angry confrontations (Mars in Pisces).  As you read the following planetary placement descriptions, it is clear that the planetary placements describe the current news stories.

May 31:  Moon at 29 Degrees Virgo Square North and South Nodes in  Gemini/Sagittarius.  The Moon expresses our emotions and feelings.  The Nodes of the Moon in our natal chart show a karmic connection.  In the chart of a country, they tell us something about the emotions of the collective.  There is a strong public need for truth (Sagittarius) and truthful communication (Gemini). The Nodes will remain in Gemini/Sagittarius for approximately 18 months.

June 1-3:  Retrograde Venus Square Mars at 13-15 Degrees Gemini/Pisces. On a personal level, this volatile, challenging energy can bring conflict with others in your life.  Venus is what we like (or love), while Mars is how we get what we like.  Be careful not to sabotage a loving relationship by projecting too much feisty, pushy energy towards those you love.  Because Mars is a warlike planet and Venus represents how you love yourself, you may even be in a war with yourself.  Be aware of a tendency to think such thoughts as “I’m too fat, no one will love me.”  “I’m too old.”, etc.

The intensity level goes up on the 3rd when the Sun is conjunct Venus and both are square Mars and Neptune.

June 1-10: Sun Square Mars from 11-20 Degrees Gemini/Pisces. It is obvious with this challenging volatile energy during the first two weeks of June that you (me and everyone else) are feeling edgier than usual and ready to do battle.  Mars (action, and sometimes warlike actions) in Pisces (our ideals) urges us to stand up for what we believe.  The Sun in Gemini square Mars is a challenge to speak out (Gemini) against those actions and mindsets that go against what we know to be right.  Expect the emotional, even violent, unrest to continue for quite some time.

June 5: Lunar Eclipse at 15 Degrees Sagittarius/Gemini.  Sun and Moon Form a T-Square to Mars in Pisces.  This is a nervous, emotional, impatient, edgy energy.  A T-Square aspect is a dynamically challenging aspect that demands new ways of problem-solving. Everything is amplified under this Sagittarius Eclipse. The Moon in Sagittarius demands to know the truth, while the Sun in Gemini wants to gather facts and, above all else, to be heard. Once again, the idealistic, compassionate sign of Pisces tenanted by war-like Mars demands action, and action now, even though confusion and misinformation (Pisces) are rampant.

June 12-13:  Mars Conjunct Neptune at 20 Degrees Pisces.  When aggressive, action-oriented Mars meets Neptune, the planet of confusion and misinformation, you may feel agitated, confused, exhausted and just generally out-of-sorts.  The best way through this draining energy is to use the positive qualities of these two planets.  Mars would like you to do something active:  take a run, punch a punching bag or even vigorously clean the house.  Neptune’s higher vibrations favor meditation, yoga, being near water, or even a long, soothing bubble bath.

June 18: Mercury Turns Retrograde at 15 Degrees Cancer.  Mercury retrograde in Cancer until July 12 adds to the general sense of confusion that is so prevalent this month.  The sign of Cancer brings our attention to matters of self-preservation, nationalism and protecting those in our family and/or “tribe.”  Mercury retrograde in Cancer indicates that we have more time to redo those things that are no longer working, especially around family and home issues.

June 21: Annular Solar Eclipse on the Solstice at 0 Degrees Cancer. This important Cancer solar eclipse brings an energy shift around home, family, nurturing and national pride. An eclipse at zero degrees is especially important as it shows a shift, a change, and a desire to start something new or to look at something in a new way.  An eclipsed Sun is a signal that it is time to question your motives and actions.  Ask yourself if your understanding is correct and whether the choice you made was the correct one.  If not, this Solar Eclipse is an especially good time a make a change.

nd think big, as you make plans for your new reality.  We may all begin to understand that there really will be a pot of gold after the thunderstorm.  However, Mercury in hard aspect to Jupiter and Pluto warns us to temper our expectations.

June 22:  Neptune Turns Retrograde at 21 Degrees Pisces Until November 30.  Neptune retrograde in Pisces gives us more time to assess the coronavirus risks and cures.  It also tells us that we need to re-assess our spirituality and compassion.  A good thing to ask ourselves during this long summer is:  “What would Jesus (or the Dalai Lama, or Martin Luther King, or any spiritual or compassionate leader) do?’

June 24:  Venus Turns Direct at 5 Degrees Gemini.  Any relationship blips that appeared during Venus retrograde, can how be worked out and solutions can be found.

June 27:  Mars enters Aries.  The month ends on a progressive, forward-moving note with Mars in Aries.  You may feel a surge of energy and a strong need for action with this transit, especially if you have early degrees of the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) in your chart. During Mar’s transit through Aries through early January 2021, everyone may be feeling more anger and aggression, so act accordingly.

June 30:  Sun Conjunct Mercury Square Chiron at 9 Degrees Cancer/Aries.  This square brings an abundance of possible problem-solving and healing ideas though there may be challenges in their implementation.

I am offering my special eclipse readings to bring you clarity and a plan of action to navigate this challenging time for 20% off my normal rate. Offer good from June 1 through July 5, 2020.

Astrology Transits May 2020 -Dancing Through Change

“The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.” ― Alan Wilson Watts

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought unprecedented change to our individual and collective realities and perceptions.  As discussed in previous newsletters, we are moving toward a Pluto return, which will be exact in early February 2022. It takes Pluto approximately 248 years to make a complete revolution around the Sun. It is my belief that what we are now feeling is just a forewarning or preview of the huge transformation that we are moving towards.  We have certainly been feeling the once-in-a-lifetime shifts as Pluto, the planet of transformation, does its thing.

Indeed, the global pandemic will change our beliefs and ideas around safety, security, travel, the economy, groups and friends.  It has stripped away the non-essentials and forced us to look at what we really value (Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus. 

This month we will experience four planets in retrograde motion. 

        Pluto turned retrograde on April 25 until October 4

Saturn turns retrograde on May 11 until September 29

        Venus turns retrograde on May 13 until June 25       

Jupiter turns retrograde on May 15 until September 13

Though retrogrades are often negatively viewed, they can be a blessing in disguise. Retrograde planets slow things down. We may feel like “nothing is moving” or “things are not moving fast enough.”  The blessing is that retrograde planets give us the time and the will to think things through and to proceed in a measured way.  These retrogrades are superb for re-assessing what we did wrong and what we did right and to correct those things that were not done as well as they should have been.

Overall, due to an abundance of Taurus energy, May is a good time to consolidate your finances and to enhance your material security.

May 3:  Venus Square Neptune at 20 Degrees Gemini/Pisces. This is a great time to remove yourself from all the chaos going on in the outside world and to watch an inspirational film or read an uplifting book.  Your judgment may be clouded now, so avoid making any life-changing decisions during the first week of May. Also be aware of becoming entangled in romantic (Venus) entanglements that may not be what they seem (Neptune).  However, May 4 when the Sun is conjunct Mercury will be conducive to communication such as writing and discussion. 

May 7:  Full Moon at 17 Degrees Scorpio.  This Scorpio full Moon is opposite the Sun and Mercury in Taurus.  Scorpio is an emotional water sign, while Taurus is a practical earth sign.  Both Scorpio and Taurus are fixed signs that tend to resist change. Look for set opinions relating to emotional issues versus a practical, pragmatic mind set.  Given the current COVID-19 pandemic, we may see high emotions around death and saving lives versus money and employment issues. Given the tension, you may be glad that you are home alone under this Scorpio full Moon.

May 10:  Sun Sextile Neptune at 20 Degrees Taurus/Pisces.  Sextiles typically bring a feeling of ease to whatever is going on in the world.  The Sun is your active ego or ability to made needed decisions.  Neptune tends to cloud all issues.  When combined in an easy aspect, it allows you to make decisions based on intuition.  Artistic projects are favored due to the high level of imagination and creativity now present. Mercury trine Jupiter at the same time, gives you good judgement based on all the data.  Depressive feelings may lift under this lovely optimistic (Jupiter) aspect.

May 11:  Mercury enters Gemini.Mercury Square Mars at 29 Degrees Taurus/Aquarius.  Trouble, irritations, arguments and conflict are the key words for this unpleasant day. Definitely not a good day to have “those conversations” or to provoke anyone.  Machines may act up.  Consider taking a solitary walk to calm your mind.  Mercury in Gemini ups your thinking capacity, so ideas flow freely, if erratically.

May 12:  Mars Enters Pisces.  Mars doesn’t enjoy being in Pisces, because Mars likes action and Pisces is more contemplative.  However, Mars in Pisces gifts you with high intuition and the will to pursue your spiritual path. Mars in Pisces does have a tendency to fire you up, while simultaneously zapping your energy.  Pace yourself and give yourself permission to rest when you can.  Mars moves into its home sign of Aries on June 26, which will make you wish you would have rested while you can.

May 17:  Sun Trine Jupiter at 27 Degrees Taurus/Capricorn.  Amidst all of the turmoil, this aspect is like an infusion of sunshine and roses.  Optimism reappears, though it is based on practicality (earth signs Taurus and Capricorn).  Expand your horizons and think big, as you make plans for your new reality.  We may all begin to understand that there really will be a pot of gold after the thunderstorm.  However, Mercury in hard aspect to Jupiter and Pluto warns us to temper our expectations.

May 20: Sun Enters Gemini.  See new Moon in Gemini below.  The Sun in Gemini will be somewhat the same, though the Sun is more active, while the Moon is more emotional and intuitional.

May 20:  Venus Square Neptune  See my interpretation of May 3 as that energy appears once again due to Venus’ retrograde motion.  Venus retrograde is an opportune time to compassionately work on relationship issues.

May 22:  New Moon at 2 Degrees Gemini.  The Gemini new Moon lets us start anew in all matters relating to communication.  The coming Gemini 28-day new Moon cycle is good for:

  • Reaching out to others (safely of course).
  • Re-evaluating our communication and social skills (or lack thereof). 
  • Taking short classes for enjoyment or for skill improvement.
  • Adding mental stimulation and variety.
  • Making a vow to listen more deeply.

Mercury conjunct Venus in Gemini on May 22 is a superb day for harmonious, clear conversation with a spirit of compromise and agreement.

Moon Movement During April 2020: Note:  The time of the Moon’s movement into a sign will vary depending on where you live.

May 1:  Moon in Leo May 2:  Moon enters Virgo
May 4:  Moon enters Libra
May 6:  Moon enters Scorpio

May 12:  Moon enters Aquarius
May 14:  Moon enters Pisces
May 17:  Moon enters Aries
May 19:  Moon enters Taurus
May 22:  New Moon at 2 degrees Gemini
May 22:  Moon enters Gemini
May 24:  Moon enters Cancer

Astrology Transits April 2020 -The Gift and the Shadow

All the beauty of life is made up of light and shadow.Leo Tolstoy

Life has taken a big turn since the last time I touched base with everyone via this newsletter. Someone compared our current situation to “watching a bizarre sci-fi movie,” which it certainly feels like sometimes. Because so much of our collective attention is focused on the COVID-19 crisis and the resultant financial insecurity, I am going to spend part of this newsletter astrologically addressing that phenomena.

First to set the stage: 

  • Neptune rules the immune system, influenza, danger through contagious disease and influenza-like illnesses.  In its highest light expression, it expresses as compassion for all. In its shadow expression it rules obstruction of the truth, widespread confusion and delusion.
  • Pluto rules viruses, death, the masses and the process of transformation.
  • Uranus and Saturn together rule panic and fear.
  • Mars rules fevers, anger, aggressive action and accelerates conditions.
  • Saturn rules pneumonia, limitation, worry, fear and responsibility.
  • Jupiter rules optimism, excess of all kinds and pneumonia.
  • Gemini and Mercury rule the lungs, pneumonia and lung troubles.
  • Moon rules dropsy, coughs, the masses, change, and fluctuations

It is my belief that the corona virus started on November 28, 2019, when the Moon was opposition Neptune and sextile the Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn.  Saturn and Pluto have been moving together in Capricorn for many months.  Those two heavy planets together rule government, business, education and the health care system. Capricorn rules the patriarchy, the 1%ers, and materiality over caring and humanity.

Saturn and Pluto moving together off and on for many months represent a seismic shift that has been slowly building.  I have been watching them for two years.  I knew something life changing was about to happen, but could not determine what it was.  Now I know.

Pluto, the planet of transformation, never projects his energy in a small way.  His energy is more aligned with annihilation — then a process of rebuilding.  Such rebuilding is always more secure and sustainable than the old, crumbling ideas and structures.  Saturn, the planet of limitation and responsibility, lets us know that austerity and responsibility will be needed to bring about this needed transformation.

The Saturn and Pluto energies came into sharp focus on January 12, 2020, when the South Node, Jupiter, Sun, Pluto, Saturn and Mercury were all in Capricorn.  Such a concentration of planets in Capricorn indicate a change in the structural regime, power plays, and the transformation and limitation of everything.

The last super full Moon in Virgo on March 9 opposite the Sun and Neptune in Pisces accelerated the need for healing and ushered in a health and healing crisis.  Pisces rules the immune system and one’s personal vulnerability.  The Virgo full Moon in opposition to Sun and Neptune illuminated the upcoming health crisis.

Our current situation is scary and promotes fear (Saturn), and we question the motives and knowledge of those in control (Pluto).  However, in so many ways, it has a positive overlay.  Our materialistic, alienated way of life was unsustainable, not only for us, but also for the health of Mother Earth herself.  Saturn, and then Mars, now in the air sign of Aquarius, bring a need for connection to others and to our earth.  We truly are our brother’s keepers.  We now realize that our actions can mean life and death for ourselves, for those around us and even to Mother Earth.

Stay safe and reach out to someone in your life by telephone or online. By doing so, you are letting Saturn express his highest good.  Giving in to fear and lack is letting Saturn express in his negative mode. Remember, that every planet, sign and house in astrology has both a positive and a negative meaning.  Now, more than ever, is the time to focus on expressing the positive and minimizing the negative.  Secondly, always remember that nothing can happen to you that is not shown in your birth chart.  Though untold numbers of people will suffer from the current COVID-19 crisis, many, many others will benefit. Be kind to yourself, take precautions and focus on the higher good for all.  Above all, remember the above Tolstoy quote:  “All the beauty of life is made up of light and shadow.”  The shadows of life serve to make the light even more beautiful.

March 30-April 1:  Mars Enters Aquarius; Mars Conjunct Saturn at 0‑to‑1 Degrees Aquarius.  Saturn entered Aquarius on March 21 and is now joined by Mars.  This is a paradigm-shifting movement and conjunction.  Saturn in Capricorn (often conjunct Pluto) was concerned with government, control, limitation, big business, and ego-driven materiality. Capricorn and Pluto in Capricorn were involved with political parties and common beliefs that structured (Saturn) the beliefs of a society.

Mars activates whatever it touches.  When it was in Capricorn, it activated the aforementioned energies. Now, as Mars moves to Aquarius and conjuncts Saturn, we are being forced to pay attention to where we are as a society and where we want to be.  We are learning that what we do on a daily basis affects all homo sapiens and all other earthly beings.

April 3:  Venus Enters Gemini; Mercury Conjunct Neptune at 19 Degrees Pisces.  Venus in Gemini until August 7, bodes well for communication and negotiations required to work out the massive problems associated with the COVID-19 outbreak.  Venus will turn retrograde at 22 degrees Gemini on May 13.  Venus in Gemini and Mercury conjunct Neptune is a loving, communicative, compassionate energy.  Use this energy to reach out to those who you have been out of touch with for some time or to volunteer in some way. 

April 6-8:  Mars Square Uranus at 4-6 Degrees Aquarius/Taurus; Mercury Sextile Jupiter/Pluto at 22-25 Degrees Pisces/Capricorn. Mars square Uranus signals a feisty, argumentative, chaotic time full of social upheavals, impatience and anger (Mars) around an unstable financial outlook  and conflicting values (Uranus in Taurus).

Mercury sextile Jupiter and Mercury sextile Pluto are wonderful for research and deep diving into possible treatments or cures for COVID-19.

April 7:  Full Moon at 18 Degrees Libra/Aries.  This Libra full Moon is a supermoon.  It is closer to the earth than any other full Moon this year.  Hopefully, we will have a clear sky, as it should be spectacular!

Astrologically, at the time of the Full Moon, Mars (action and aggression) is square Uranus (chaos and upheaval). Expect lots of discord between the federal, state and local governments and much disagreement about the best way to proceed.  Uranus, as the planet of breakthroughs, could force new ways of thinking about problems and new, innovative inventions being tested.

April 13-16:  Sun Square Jupiter/Pluto/Moon at 24-26 Degrees Aries/Capricorn. There could be large mood fluctuations (Moon/Jupiter) and also fluctuations in the need to act (Sun in Aries) versus the need to control situations (Pluto in Capricorn).  Stay calm and do something that you DO have control over.

April 22:  New Moon at 3 Degrees Taurus.  The new Moon in Taurus speaks to our resources and what we value.  It makes a square to Jupiter and Saturn in Capricorn/Aquarius.  The square is about the need to move forward boldly (Jupiter) balanced with the need to do so within the bounds of reality (Saturn).

April 25:  Mercury Square Pluto at 25 Degrees Aries/Capricorn. Lots of mental intensity and troubled thoughts now, with a possible touch of paranoia and overly controlling tendencies.  Not a menu I would be interested in.  Much better to use this time to plan constructive avenues of action under our new reality.

April 26:  Pluto Retrograde at 25 Degrees Capricorn.  Pluto turns retrograde until October 15, 2020.  Next month Venus, Jupiter, and Saturn will also turn retrograde.  It could bring a period of needed respite where we can all catch our breath and re-evaluate the new reality.

April 30:  Mercury Conjunct Uranus at 6 Degrees Taurus. We could experience radical and/or experimental ideas or inventions that lead to a breakthrough.  Money matters may be subject to wild ideas and news, but solutions could also move forward in a surprising way.

Moon Movement During April 2020: Note:  The time of the Moon’s movement into a sign will vary depending on where you live.

April 1: Moon in Cancer
April 2:  Moon enters Leo
April 4:  Moon enters Virgo
April 6:  Moon enters Libra
