Astrology Transits April 2019 – Energized and Active

Passion is energy.  Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you. — Ophrah Winfrey

April begins with a shift from dreamy and somewhat confused, to active and energetic. The Sun and Chiron in Aries are joined by the Moon on April 5 and Mercury is now moving direct. The first week in April is an opportune time for new beginnings, setting goals and actively moving forward toward manifesting those goals.

April 5: New Moon at 15 Degrees Aries. Though this is a great time to move confidently forward with plans, you do need to be careful not to rush headlong into anything. Assess the pros and cons before blindly and tempestuously acting. Aries energy can sometimes cause you to act before engaging your mind.

April 9: Jupiter Turns Retrograde at 24 Degrees Sagittarius. The transiting Moon squares Jupiter as Jupiter stations retrograde. Jupiter will remain in retrograde motion all summer, until August 12, 2019. This would be a good time to re-assess your hopes and wishes, and your goals for the future. Trim those ideas that were just wishful thinking and expand those ideas that have a good chance of manifesting. United States’ negotiations with foreign countries could become stalled.

April 10: Sun square Saturn at 20 Degrees Aries/Capricorn. The Sun square Saturn brings tests and challenges. You will feel restricted, overworked and bogged down in responsibilities. The best way through this energy is to keep your nose to the grindstone and try not to take other’s criticism to heart. Feelings of isolation, sadness and discouragement may bring depression. Just know that “this too shall pass” and that successfully getting through this challenging energy will be one more step toward eventual success and mastery.

At the same time, Venus conjuncts Neptune in Pisces. This is a lovely aspect that can help diffuse the tensions of Sun square Saturn. Take time to count your blessings and to meditate on the goodness in life.

April 13: Sun Square Pluto at 23 Degrees Aries/Capricorn. Your plans and ego needs meet a brick wall. Powerful people or authority figures can initiate a crisis or conflict. Because of the intensity of this transit, it is best to maintain your equilibrium and deal with any conflict as calmly as possible. The more you understand that the conflict is triggering your own deeply buried psychological issues, the easier it will be to move through this challenging time. Such understanding will let you emerge with a greater self-understanding and sense of inner power.

Because Pluto is also conjunct the South Node at this time, there is also a high probability that your reaction will be fueled by karmic connections to something that happened in a past life that is being replayed in this lifetime.

The Sun trine Jupiter on April 12 and 13 could add fuel to the fire or, alternatively, add a touch of humor to the highly-charged atmosphere. The best advice is to keep your head, see the humor in the situation and walk away from any power struggles.

April 14: Venus Sextile Pluto at 23 Degrees Pisces/Capricorn. Thank goodness, this Venus transit calms things down and lightens them up just a little.

April 17: Mercury enters Aries. Mercury in Aries brings the return of quick, clear thinking. Our thinking processes were cloudy and unreliable all through March. Mercury in Aries brings back the full command of our thinking processes.

April 19: Full Moon at 29 Degrees Libra/Aries. This is an interesting full Moon because it falls at the critical 29 degrees. A full Moon at 29 degrees of any sign would indicate a change in energy. It confirms that the unfocused energy of last month is finally gone. The focus is now on action and moving forward.

April 20: Sun Enters Taurus and Venus enters Aries. We get more “go power” with the entry of Venus into Aries. When the Sun enters Taurus, our thoughts turn to money, security and financial matters, while Venus in Aries ramps up the action. This is a good time to take steps to further your financial/security profile.

The energy slows down at the end of the month when Pluto, and then Saturn, move into retrograde motion in Capricorn.

April 24: Pluto Stations Retrograde at 23 Degrees Capricorn until October 4, 2019. You may not feel the energy of Pluto retrograde in your day-to-day life. However, because Pluto rules deep transformation of your hidden fears and traumas, you may find that you are digging deeper into your psychological life to find answers.

April 29: Saturn Stations retrograde at 20 Degrees Capricorn until September 19, 2019. Saturn retrograde can make you feel frustrated, burdened, fearful and discouraged. Saturn retrograde can be a blessing if you use this time to take responsibility, carefully plan and do the required work. Look at it as a way to take more time to get rid of outdated, unproductive habits. One thing is for sure, as much as Saturn is a taskmaster, it also rewards your honest efforts.

We do not feel the effects of Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto retrograde as actively in our everyday life as we feel retrogrades of the faster-moving planets. The effects are there, but the action is not as visible as it would be during a Mercury, Venus or Mars retrograde. However, because Jupiter and Saturn rules business, there will very likely be a slow down in business matters.

Astrology Transits March 2019 – Creativity & Spirituality

I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free — Michelangelo

The Sun in Pisces quietly ushers in a more contemplative, spiritual, dreamy, artistic quality.  Creativity, imagination and intuition are at an all-time high.  After the conflicts and dramas of the last two months this shift is felt as either a welcome relief or as disorienting and confusing; probably both.  Indeed, Pisces and its ruler, Neptune, are often regarded as harbingers of confusion, delusion and illusion.  The flip side is that Pisces and Neptune bring high spiritual gifts, amazing insights, creativity and the gift of brilliant imagination.

The Piscean energy is being played out through the background of a sextile from Neptune in Pisces to Saturn in Capricorn.  Saturn’s energy could not be more different than Neptune’s energy.  Capricorn represents definition, limitation, structure and practical endeavors, while Neptune in Pisces is all about dreams, visions and the blurring of boundaries.  All through the year 2019 we are tasked to balance these conflicting energies.  The more we can do so, the more productive the year will be.

March 1: Venus square Uranus 29 Degrees Capricorn/Aries. Venus square Uranus is a crazy quilt of energy.  Uranus brings us creative, erratic and unexpected energy, while Venus is beauty, value and all relationship matters.  You may feel total confusion around those you are in relationship with.  Or, alternatively, you may be questioning everything you thought you knew about those in your life.  Questions such as, “Now why did they do that?” or “What did they mean by what they just said?”  Luckily, Venus moves into Pisces later in the day, when it enters Aquarius.

March 5:  Mercury Retrograde at 29 degrees Pisces.Mercury moves in apparent backward motion in Pisces until March 28.  Retrograde planets give us time to review, revise and repair.  Be wary of fuzzy thinking and lack of discernment during Mercury retrograde in Pisces.  As always, you would be wise to back up your computer and to make sure your computer virus protection is up-to-date.  Once Mercury moves forward after March 28, it will be time to move forward with your revised plans, especially plans associated with communication, ideas or connection. 

March 6:  Pisces New Moon Conjunct Neptune.  New Moons are always an opportune time to start something new or to move forward with revised plans. With such an abundance of Piscean energy, you would be advised to wait to attend to practical matters.  This Moon is much more suited to engaging in something Neptunian.  There has never been a better time to dream, dance, envision, or to paint, sing, pray or meditate.  A trip to the ocean or sitting by a mountain stream would be an ideal way to use the Piscean/lunar/Neptunian energy.  The veils to other realms are parted, so pay attention to messages from your mind, body or soul and, indeed, from other realms.  Those of you who have lost loved ones and/or pets may find symbols of connection from your departed loved one at this time. Because this is such a moist and watery Moon, flooding and unexpected water events could be in the news. 

March 6: Uranus enters Taurus.  Uranus was in Taurus from May to December of last year before it retrograded back into Aries. Uranus always radiates giant cosmic waves when it interacts with another planet or point in the Zodiac.  Uranus’ re-entry into Taurus promises to shake up and create unexpected changes around earthy things (Taurus) and earth-centered technology.  When Uranus was in Taurus last summer, we experienced massive volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and fires (Uranus plus Mars).  Uranus is a wild card so it is hard to know exactly what will happen, but one thing is certain, it will bring chaotic, out-of-the-blue changes.  Think back to what happened last summer to get a preview of how it will work in your life when it moves through Taurus until 2026.  In addition, Uranus has a strong connection to freedom and revolution.  It will have the most effect for those of you who have personal planets in the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Uranus).  The fixed signs will be ready to make strong, freedom-oriented changes in their life during the next six years.

March 14-19: Mars in Taurus Trine Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn.  You could get a burst of energy (Mars) enabling you to move forward in a significant way.  Progress will require hard work (Saturn) and deep commitment (Pluto) to your goals.  The earthy Taurus/Capricorn energy is especially good for monetary progress in business and career matters.

March 20:  Full Libra Supermoon at Zero Degrees Libra/Aries.  This Libra Supermoon is all about relationships.  It throws a spotlight on your “I Am” (Aries) versus your relationships (Libra).  Are you able to meet your own needs while in a relationship?  How far will you go to maintain an unfair (Libra) relationship?  Or, are you not giving enough time and effort to your close relationships?  If there is a lot of relationship conflict in your life now, consider the fact that it could mirror your own inner disconnect.  Three of the remaining eclipses of 2019 will fall in Cancer, which light up the relationship issues shown by this Libra full supermoon.

The Libra Supermoon occurs at the same time as the Spring Equinox.  It marks the beginning of the astrological new year and the beginning of spring.  The word “equinox” comes from the Latin word for equal night.  The Sun in Aries is conjunct Chiron at this equinox/full moon.  It emphasizes the opposing pull of yin/yang, light/dark and feminine/masculine energies.  Chiron, known as the “wounded healer” promises healing through the use of wisdom and maturity to heal our divisions.  Chiron in Aries, the sign of action and warrior energy, asks us to take action where needed to bring about healing of out-of-kilter situations.  I find it extremely profound that this Chiron in Aries energy is connected to the Libra/Aries Supermoon.  It portends the possibility, and the extreme need, to balance our need for relationship (Libra) with our need for self-projection (Aries).

March 27:  Mercury Stations Direct Conjunct Neptune at 16 Degrees Pisces.  This is another strong Piscean aspect.  Not the best day for clear thought, but another great day to pay attention to spirits, angels, intuitive insights and experiences of deja vu.

Astrology Transits February 2019 – Reality with Flow

Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like. ― Lao Tzu

The theme this month is “facing reality while staying in the flow.” It is time to make a choice about what really matters to you and to move forward with that choice without becoming confused or disillusioned.  All through 2019 as Saturn moves toward an exact conjunction with Pluto, we are charged with tidying up our unfinished business.  We need to be prepared in order to best use the profound changes that are coming with the Saturn/Pluto conjunction and the Capricorn stellium in January 2020. 

January opened with Mars in its own sign at zero degrees Aries.  That was a big shot of energy.  However, as January wore on the energy seemed to be thwarted by the preponderance of the more-sluggish Capricorn (Saturn) energy.  Everything seemed to take more energy than we had anticipated and we ended up with an exhausted, burnt-out feeling.

The first half of February starts off with another energy burst with Mars square to Pluto.  However, this (Mars/Pluto) aspect is much more volatile and more problematic.  Road rage, angry outbursts and hot confrontations of all kinds are possible until mid-month. 

February 1-3: Venus trines Uranus at 28 degrees Sagittarius/Aries before entering Capricorn on February 3.  This fiery trine lends an easy, but active, flavor to normally disruptive Uranus.  There could be traces of a rather pleasant “devil may care” vibe so long as you know your limits and stay safe.  Once Venus enters Capricorn, she becomes much more serious and conformist.

February 10:  Mercury Enters Pisces.  Our thinking processes become less focused and our day dreams more pronounced.  Mercury’s journey through Pisces is a good time to use Saturn in Capricorn to make concrete (Saturn) plans (Mercury) in furtherance of your dreams (Pisces). 

February 12-13: Mars Conjunct Uranus at 28 Degrees Aries.  This aspect is great for innovation, determination and shaking things up.  If you have been putting off a task or project, this conjunction can snap you out of your doldrums.  You can, however, act without thinking under its influence.  Practice mindfulness in all your actions in order to avoid accidents and mishaps.  Be wary of getting involved in disagreements.  The energy is much too “hot” to rationally settle conflicts.

February 14:  Valentine’s Day 2019.  With the Moon (emotions) square Neptune (confusion, illusion, delusion) and inconjunct the Venus/Saturn conjunction, this is not the best day for romantic liaisons.  In addition, The Mars/Uranus conjunction points to a low flash point in any minor disagreements.  The Moon in opposition to Jupiter (big expectations) increases the likelihood that any such disagreements will be totally blown out of proportion.  It would be much better to postpone your Valentine’s celebration until Saturday, the 16th (see Valentine Day’s chart below) when Mars has moved into Taurus and further away from Uranus.

February 16: Venus Sextile Neptune at 14 Degrees Capricorn/Pisces.  Venus in soft aspect with Neptune lends a romantic, dreamy quality to their two-day connection.  It’s not so good for business matters, so relax and enjoy the lovely planetary beams.  The next day, when Venus conjuncts Saturn will be a better time to pursue your heart’s desire and to make progress toward your financial goals.  The key now, and all month, is to dream big, plan well, work hard and then to release and go with the flow.

February 18:  Venus conjunct Saturn; Mercury conjunct Neptune; Sun enters Pisces and Sun Sextile Uranus.  This is another day when it may be best to stick to the status quo, though Sun sextile Uranus can bring in some excellent ideas from out of the blue.  Pay attention to your thoughts for surprising gems of wisdom.

February 19:  Super Full Moon at Zero Degrees Virgo/Pisces.  This is another good time to practice integration of reality with the ability to go with the flow.  You might also consider organizing (Virgo) any cluttered areas while listening to inspiring music amid a collection of scented candles (Pisces).  Enjoy!The month ends with a few, rather minor, Mercury and Venus aspects that will be felt for only a short time.  Next month, Mercury turns stationary retrograde.

Astrology Transits December 2018 – Set Your Vision

Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside dreams. Who looks inside, awakens. — Anonymous

 

 

December opens with a lingering influence from retrograde Mercury in Scorpio and Venus moving direct from Libra into Scorpio.  With the two personal planets remaining in Scorpio, the emphasis is on continuing to dig deeply into understanding cause and effect, especially in relationship matters.  As always, the Scorpio archetype is about transformation and rebuilding.  The question to ask is: “What do I need to transform” and/or “What do I need to let go of in order to move forward?”

After the first week of December, the energy and the focus shift to establishing a vision for the New Year.  In fact, the planetary vibes are so good for setting a vision and goal that I would advise everyone to do that work now instead of after New Year’s Day.  You will want to have your goals and visions firmly in place by then, because 2019 will start off in a high-paced, active way.

December 1-6:  Venus at 29 Degrees Libra in T-Square with Uranus in Aries and the North and South Nodes at 29 Degrees Cancer/Capricorn.  Sun in Sagittarius Square Mars and Neptune in Pisces. This is an intense time of agitation and emotional upheaval.  Retrograde Mercury cautions us to stay grounded and to look before we leap.  There is a strong karmic connection due to the involvement of the Nodes.  We may need to face old karmic issues or to make amends for past actions.  The optimistic Sagittarius Sun square aggressive Mars and dreamy Neptune in Pisces can manifest as being unable to discern boundaries.  It is, however, a great aspect for any creative endeavors. With Mercury still retrograde, it would be prudent to watch your language, as hurtful language can unknowingly erupt.  Mercury goes stationary direct on December 6.

December 7:  Mars Conjunct Neptune at 13 Degrees Pisces Square the New Moon in Sagittarius. Mars Semisquare Uranus.  Communication is fuzzy due to stationary Mercury and the Pisces energy.  The Mars/Uranus aspect brings a strong element of chaotic, angry, unfocused energy.  This is definitely not a good time to make major decisions.  Use the New Moon energy to plan and envision your desired future.  Think and plan but don’t act!  The more you can imagine and visualize your desires the easier it will be to manifest them when Mars enters Aries on New Year’s Day.  This is not the best time to travel; delay any trips until the middle of the month if possible.

December 12:  Mercury Enters Sagittarius and Squares Neptune and Mars in Pisces.  Though the energy lightens considerably when Mercury joins the Sun and Jupiter in Sagittarius, the challenging square to Neptune and Mars has a lingering feeling of fog or fuzziness around our ideas.  As stated above, this is a good time to set your vision and to envision; it is not as conducive to actual action.  Use the Sagittarius optimism to set your sights on a higher outcome than would have been possible just a few weeks ago.

December 16-17:  Venus Sextile Saturn and Mars Sextile Pluto.  This is such a great time to examine power issues in your life and to resolve any dis-equilibrium around the balance of power.  Venus’ travels through Libra and Scorpio gave you plenty of time to come to grips with any such issues.  Now is the time to confront and resolve those issues, especially those between the feminine and masculine aspects of yourself and others.

December 19:  Sun at 27 Degrees Sagittarius Square Chiron at 27 Degrees Pisces.  Old health issues and/or hurtful emotional issues can come back to temporarily haunt you. However, Sun/Chiron also holds the key to resolution.  The Sun in the sign of the truth seeker (Sagittarius) can unlock and illuminate any unseen, foggy or unclear ideas around those issues.    

December 20-21:  Sun Enters Capricorn at the Winter Solstice Trine Uranus; and Venus Trine Neptune.  All year we have been dealing with the upsets and chaos of challenging aspects to Uranus.  Now, with the Sun in Sagittarius trine Uranus in Aries, we finally have the green light.  We can more easily make the changes that we were unable to make during the long summer and fall punctuated with retrograde planets. Venus trine Neptune at the solstice adds a lovely romantic glow to everything we encounter.

December 22:  Full Moon at Zero Degrees Cancer/Capricorn.  This Full Moon marks the December turning point when everything is held in the balance. We are very involved in home matters, while another part of us is paying more attention to public and career matters.  Zero degrees is very significant for this Full Moon in cardinal signs.  In a lot of ways, this is all about bringing the different elements of ourselves and our world into balance.  That is:  The elements of earth, water, air and fire; male and female and black and white viewpoints.  The more we look inside, the better we can navigate all of these seeming contradictions.

December 31:  Mars at Zero Degrees Aries.  The New Year blasts off energetically with Mars at zero degrees Aries.  Mars is extra strong in its home sign of Aries and zero degrees is a significant degree denoting strong, active energy and the ability to aggressively move forward. 

Now is the time to put all of your visions into practical, energetic use.  Mars in Aries will push you forward toward your dreams.  Mars at zero degrees says, “You may not be ready, but you can do this.  Jump and you will find a way.”  Its like Clark Kent throwing off his everyday clothes to become Superman!  Mars at zero degrees Aries urges you to be Superman/Superwoman.  The New Year’s chart based in New York City, NY at midnight follows:

The Sun conjuncts Saturn in Capricorn on January 2.  With Sun, Saturn, Pluto and the South Node all in Capricorn at this time, you can be sure that it is an opportune time to move forward in business- and career-related matters.  Mars in Aries is providing the push and impetus and the Capricorn planets are providing just enough braking power to keep you grounded and practical.  Go for it!
