April is full of retrograde chatter! While Mercury only stays retrograde till April 4th, it takes at least a week to 10 days before communication begins to flow smoothly again. Mars has been retrograde since 1/24, helping us all to plan more wisely in whatever forward direction we would like to take in our lives. It will unleash its bolt of energy and then all of our plans can go into motion. Saturn continues it’s approximately 5 month retrograde cycle and Pluto goes retrograde on 4/10 to stay till 9/18. What this is causing for us all is a “time out” to reconsider the directions in our lives. Think deeper, plan wiser, cut your losses and let go of the past.
The Full Moon in Libra on the 6th will be a lovely time for most as Libra brings harmony and balance and a love of beauty and art. This would be a good time to relax and enjoy the new exhibit at the museum or art gallery. The New Moon in Taurus on the 21st is similar to the Full Moon in that Venus is the ruler of both Libra and Taurus. Venus brings love and beauty into our lives, so enjoy that this month and relax and plant beautiful flowers.
Mercury moves into Aries on the 17th which brings communication to the forefront. This will be aggressive at times and everyone will feel the need to express themselves……..all at once! Venus moves into Gemini on the 4th bringing a sense of lightness and fun! Due to Venus going retrograde in May, she will stay in Gemini till August 7th! In June she will eclipse the sun! Big news and more on that in May.
