April ends with an elevated Sun/Neptune connection. A divine download, a little elixir, a starburst of inspiration…..
Aries New Moon on the 18th is a breath of fresh Spring air… a much needed boost of positive energy. Next week’s pulse between Mercury and Mars is another call to action, to get things moving.
Whenever Venus and Saturn cross paths it’s like a mini reality check. Issues to do with relationships surface, our attachments or detachments are all-important!
It’s a moment to look at the relationships that have meant a great deal to you. Even if they have ‘ended’ they have merely changed shape. For some it’s a time of assessing the kind of glue that sticks people together, will it stand up to the challenges of the future?
The power of the cosmic configurations that have been constellated since the total eclipse on March 20 have been hanging overhead and continue until we are clear of Wednesday April 8. In some cases a huge turn of events has demolished and devastated – in others a promise of dances to come illuminates. Either way it has and continues to be a time of extremes.
Easter is all about darkness and light, death and re-birth and the cosmos is throwing us the kind of aspects that mirror this dramatic edge. An eclipsed Full Moon is plugging into Uranus and Pluto so it’s a fasten your seat belts kind of a week.
It’s all downloading at once – this is a cosmically packed week which is super-charged with change. How we think, how we relate to people, what we are doing with our lives, where we go, what we want, value and desire will all be affected by the final Uranus-Pluto square, the total solar eclipse and the Spring Equinox. It is an opportunity to align with our true soul purpose and discard that which is no longer important.
It’s kind of an action thriller this week, the cosmos is designed to keep you on the edge of your seat. Wednesday is the peak moment for triggering wild and unruly behaviour and a resultant back-lash. As Mars and Uranus join in Aries we’re all feeling the heat and then the deepening of the drama as Mars moves to clash with control freak Pluto in Capricorn. It’s certainly a time to resolve issues that have been simmering for a long while. In fact, it’s impossible to keep the lid on any longer.
Yes, March is as mad as a hatter so watch out for some strange sensations and experiences…. yet the dynamic energy is great for breaking any kind of deadlock and delivering results. Just perhaps, not quite what you were expecting!
Congratulations to Eddie Redmayne for winning the Oscar for Best Actor for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking in the film The Theory of Everything. Interestingly, they are both Capricorn – which is probably why Eddie could fit inside the role and literally become Stephen Hawking with such authenticity. Shame though that Hawking denounces astrology – he is one of those died-in-the-wool cosmologists and scientists that dismiss astrology without proper study of it.
However, I was thrilled to find this week that another Capricorn, Conservative MP David Tredinnick raised his head above the parapet to say that astrology and alternative medicine could save the NHS by taking the pressure off doctors. He said that 90% of French women use homeopathy and astrology is a diagnostic tool enabling people to see strengths and weaknesses via the birth chart. He also said opposition to astrology is driven by ‘superstition, ignorance and prejudice with scientists reacting emotionally which is always a great irony’.
I was thinking the other day as I drove around London that the way you encounter traffic is like a microcosm of energy – a mirror of what’s out there on the street, how people are, whether they’re slow or wired up, not sure where they’re going or anxious to cut in. A little journey can tell us what’s out there in the energy currents that day and whether we need to relax into it, because we know this is going to be slow. This week, the cosmic energy shifts and changes with the New Moon and the arrival of the Sun into Pisces – of course it’s the Oscars soon – so apt that the glamour of tinsel town is radiating during Pisces time which rules film, celebrity and images.
We also get Venus and Mars moving into Aries on Friday ready for their big smooch on Sunday in the hot-head sign of lust and immediacy. Love and war – beauty and desire. Feminine/masculine – they join forces, they take off together and bring a huge zing to life, a big pop of energy like an early Spring.
