Dates to watch: April 3 – 5, 11, 14, 19 – 21, 26 -28

Mars and Saturn, (in trine aspect) set a productive backdrop for taking care of business at month’s start. Both are on recent sign changes. For the next couple of years, Saturn in Pisces will dissolve what stands in the way and/or limits access to the potential on brew. For the next two months, Mars in Cancer aims to feel the way along to the breaking of new ground, and toward setting a foundation for greater security and self-consistency. There is more to confront, surpass, to source. The stars are stage setting through mid-month. 

April 3 – 5 could trigger the action in some forward thrust way. The full moon in Libra (April 5) brings an involvement or evaluation process to a peak. What sets into play could hold relevance to the solar eclipse of April 19. In fact, the stars set the clock onto an intensified two-month developmental track. What is meant to be will readily find the access key. What is not is well timed will seek an exit point. Whether you are aware of it while circumstances are underway or reflect on it later, know that the lunations of the next two months (full moon April 5, solar eclipse April 19, lunar eclipse May 5, new moon May 19), hold added karmic potency. 

The full moon in Libra of April 5 can put the spotlight on matters to do with renegotiation, reconciliation, justice seeking, and the creation of an improved equilibrium. A battle (internal or external) can prove to be a futile one, in which case the most important reconciling to do is the one that you do with yourself. On another note, it may be worthwhile to pay more, to give, sacrifice, or to accommodate more. Be first, be inclusive. Win/win may be a matter of being the first one to step forward, to tell it like it is, and/or to offer an olive branch. On a completely different note, the full moon could simply provide a social opportunity. It’s also a good transit for appearance or wardrobe upgrades, and enhancement or beautification projects.  

If you have not noticed Pluto in Aquarius in action yet, watch for the solar eclipse to deliver.

The solar eclipse on April 19 occurs at 29:50 degrees of Aries – just 10 minutes short of the sign of Taurus. Feel the passion, feel the heat, but know that dynamic life force can only be contained, restrained, or maintained for a short interlude. Put courage and initiative into play. Make good on the moment. Take your best shot and strike while the iron is hot as the moment may be fleeting. Having said that, it is important to stay informed and not to let tunnel vision get the better of you. There may be a thin line between spontaneity and impulsivity. How to know the difference? Make sure you are doing it for the right reasons, that your action or output is in keeping for what is most natural, self-honoring, and of true benefit/merit for you. Mercury will already be moving through its pre-retrograde shadow phase. 

A solar eclipse is a new moon and adds more potency to fresh starts and new initiatives. The April 19 solar eclipse is a hybrid. It is a “two in one”, as forms both an annular (ring of fire) and a total eclipse. It is an apt symbolism as the sign of Aries correlates to fresh and new, while the last degree of the sign (aneretic degree) correlates to a completion (or to an end of a beginning).  

The solar eclipse is in dynamic tension to Pluto in Aquarius. That could translate into a pressure build up or escalation, then release. Watch for this eclipse and the following days for something sudden or unexpected to burst on to the scene and/or to catch you off guard, to change the value/worth/priority, to shift the attention and redirect the action. Whatever springs to life can have a meant to be, rocket ship or spontaneous combustion feel. The sun enters Taurus on April 20. Mercury in Taurus begins a three-week retrograde cycle on April 21. 

Mercury will turn retrograde just before it perfects (forms a conjunction) with Uranus in Taurus. “Almost but not quite there/not quite yet” – this transit could take you to the brink of it or to the verge of it. It could be enlightening, awakening, lucrative, or opportune, or it could be a matter of nearing a breaking point. Either way, Mercury retrograde extends the timeline. It could prompt a backtrack, holdup, or wait and see. To the plus, the time extension could be opportune for getting the ducks better lined up. Either way, expect to be occupied with a particular matter through the beginning of June.

ARIES March 19/20 – April 19

Mars, freshly into Cancer, puts the focus on home, real estate, and family. Most importantly, more attention goes to self-care and comfort zones. Are you feeling well-nourished regarding body, mind, and soul? Are you in need or in want? What would make you feel more fulfilled and better rewarded? The next six months will help you to get a better handle on what is in your best interests. 

In opposition to Chiron in Aries, the full moon in Libra on April 5 puts added emphasis on social matters, key relationships, and contract matters (actual/legal, or karmic). Do you feel on the short end of the stick? It may be time to speak up, to take action, to cut to the chase, or to fast track into something fresh or next. The full moon sets a backdrop to go your separate ways or to partner up. A breakup can be amicable. Fresh inspiration, a sudden spark, or an instant rapport could be the start of something worthwhile. Honour your first instincts. If you have a strong reaction or aversion, know that your soul is on loudspeaker. 

Look to Venus in Gemini, starting April 10, to keep you active and on the go (regarding social or physical activity, creativity, communication tracks). The solar eclipse on April 19 could springboard something unexpected. Occurring at 29:50 Aries, just ten minutes from Taurus, the eclipse triggers both an ending and beginning of significance (and of karmic potency). Despite the fast-track potential of the eclipse, Mercury retrograde can set up a delay or a sidetrack on that full steam ahead until the second half of May or beginning of June. 

What is it worth? Is it worthwhile? April 21 to May 14, Mercury retrograde in Taurus can take you on a review of investments of time, heart, or money. The retrograde cycle is always a suitable time for a personal regroup, to reconsider options, involvements, and next steps. Slow down, smell the roses, take more time out to enjoy and to ease your way along.

TAURUS April 19 – May 21

Holding pattern no longer, Mars is on the move in Cancer. Despite the uncertainty that continues on the day-to-day level, (especially to April 10), you are likely to feel like you can maintain more consistency within yourself. You know what you want, what works and does not work for you. Consider it as a good starting place. 

The full moon on April 5 sets a backdrop for improvement, enhancement, upgrades, and repairs of all kinds (i.e., health, wealth, communication). There can be an opportunity to come clean or to have an important talk, to apply for a job, to devise a better plan, to sign up, or to reach an agreement. Venus leaves Taurus for Gemini on April 10. Helping you to stay better informed (and on the ball), through May 7, Venus enhances communication tracks, studies, and social activities. Keeping you well on the go, more exercise and outdoor activity is good for body, mind, and soul.

If you are born April 20 to 22, or May 6 to 8, you are likely to feel the full impact of the solar eclipse in Aries on April 19. Of course, any transit (eclipses included) will always depend on how they make direct contact to your natal chart. This solar eclipse infuses all new ventures and initiatives with dynamic life force. Even so, once it is launched or bursts onto the scene, you could find yourself scrambling, on a backtrack, a rethink or regroup. Mercury in Taurus turns retrograde before meeting up with Uranus (by conjunction). To the plus, Mercury retrograde gives you a time extension to get a better feel for what is most worthwhile and how to play it next. By the time they finally meet on June 4, it will be time for full steam ahead on a personal reinvention program. Ready, set, or not – you will most definitely hit go!

GEMINI May 21 – June 21

The month opens with a sense of things falling into place well, that you are getting a good handle on what is necessary. Mars trine Saturn helps you to feel under good control, to hold your own, or that the time is ripe for making your move. The first few days of the month is good for establishing a good working relationship with the powers that be or the one in charge. More support, respect, acknowledgement, or recognition can come your way.

If the pace slows down once Mercury enters Taurus on April 3, it won’t be by much. The full moon in Libra on April 5 can rev things up again. This full moon could put you on a creative roll, or spark something social, lucrative, or romantic. 

Supplying you with fresh fuel, Venus begins a four-week tour of Gemini on April 10. April 11 use opportunity to the fullest. 

April 19 delivers a hybrid solar eclipse at the very end of Aries, just ten minutes away from Taurus. A solar eclipse sets a backdrop for a more potent/dynamic springboard for endings, beginnings, and new initiatives. There is significant amped up energy to draw from but there is still something in the way of clear sailing. Pluto in dynamic tension and Mercury triggered by Uranus in Aquarius pumps up serendipity, guesswork, a state of anticipation, or a live-wire/edgy feel. Stay alert for a premonition, an instinct to kick into high gear, a flash of inspiration or for something unexpected to overtake the moment. How the eclipse transpires for you will depend on how it triggers your natal chart. You could simply feel it as an energy boost or find yourself (or others) more assertive or more abrupt than usual. 

Mercury in Taurus turns retrograde on April 21 just before perfecting with Uranus (by conjunction aspect). The backtrack can see a change of mind or heart. Too, it can redirect the focus, priority, or momentum. You could find yourself on a sidetrack, or working through something that could extend through the beginning of June.    

CANCER June 21 – July 22

After seven months of spinning wheels or keeping you on hold, Mars has finally left Gemini for Cancer.  Mars will continue to keep you supplied with fresh fuel through May 14. Mars/Saturn (trine) kickstarts the month on a good note. You should feel you can accomplish significantly over these first few days of April.

The full moon in Aries on April 5 can trigger raw or reactive emotions. Try not to jump to conclusions or to let your anger get the better of you. You could feel the one-sidedness of give and take, that you are not getting your needs met, that cooperation or consideration falls short of the mark, or that you have to do it yourself without much acknowledgement or assistance. On the other hand, you might have to jump in and offer more support to someone who is struggling. Are you up to the task? The full moon gives you an opportunity to prove that you are. Supportive transits to this full moon suggests the ability to get yourself or the matter sorted out well. 

As of the week of April 10, the pathway forward becomes clearer. You will have more to go on and/or find yourself on an upswing. On April 11, Sun/Jupiter (conjunction) and Venus/Pluto (trine) set an opportune backdrop for taking action/taking the initiative, for moving yourself (or it) onto a better, more lucrative track.  

April 19 delivers a hybrid solar eclipse at 29:50 Aries – just ten minutes away from the sign of Taurus. This eclipse can be dynamic for you if your birthday falls on or near July 23 or July 10. Of course, the influence of any eclipse or transit will depend on how it interfaces with your own birth chart. A solar eclipse sets a backdrop for endings and beginnings of significance. A hybrid eclipse is a two-in-one eclipse – it forms both an annular and a total eclipse. Likely you will feel this eclipse as a significant threshold crossing between what was and what is now. Endings and beginnings are intertwined. New prospects, initiatives, and realities hold greater potency. April 19 – 21 could deliver or springboard something you did not expect. 

The eclipse builds significant pressure or momentum then release thanks to its dynamic set up with Pluto in Aquarius (square). You could feel this as a push come to shove, as shattering through a sound barrier (yours or theirs) or as a sudden awakening or sudden enlightenment. A silence could be broken. Watch for the action to roll out in the days that follow.

Mercury in Taurus turns retrograde on April 21, falling shy of a meet up with Uranus. Whether a leap of faith, a boil over point, a stroke of genius, or a stroke of luck, Mercury may get you almost all the way there before it sets onto a backtrack. Something fresh, immediate, temporary, sidetracking, or altogether unexpected could usurp plans or overtake you. Mercury retrograde ends on May 14, but give yourself two months to see your way fully clear. What surfaces during the eclipse and start of Mercury retrograde will likely continue to consume added attention through the start of June. 

LEO July 22 – August 23

How you/they feel, what you/they think…emotions are an open book as the full moon rises in Libra on April 5. The battle or the resistance may be a futile exercise. Give and take or win/win is an art that requires added finesse – and more accommodation or flexibility than comes naturally. In the end it may be worthwhile to pay or give a little more to get more of what you genuinely want. When/if things don’t go according to plans or expectations, know the way is paved for something better. 

April 10, 11 can get things rolling and/or find you on an upswing. Venus in Gemini, a mobilizing and trend-setting transit, sets a favourable backdrop for communications, marketing, studies, and social networking. It is a good transit for scouting around, short trips, and for pleasure seeking and more physical activity. 

Whether a hello, a goodbye, an ending or a beginning, the solar eclipse in Aries on April 19 can bring destiny into play in some significant way. What arrives on the scene and/or comes to life holds a more dynamic life force. As such, the eclipse sets a favourable backdrop for exploring new options or for diving into a new venture. Even so, know there may be something to finish off or get through first. A delay, sidetrack, or preliminary step can prevent full steam ahead. You can feel the strongest impact of the eclipse if your birthday is on or near July 24, August 23, or August 8 to 10. Note that an eclipse may or may not deliver the goods on the exact date of the eclipse. The trigger period of this eclipse can extend through the start of June. 

Mercury in Taurus stations retrograde on April 21 while in very close proximity to Uranus. The eclipse and days that follow can pump up the excitement, the stress and/or guesswork. A sense of promise also accompanies the eclipse, but Mercury does not complete the mission with Uranus until June 4. For this reason, it is wise not to cash your chips in too early, or to act on an assumption. As the weeks unfold Mercury retrograde will uncover what is necessary to review and reassess.

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

Overall, Mars in good shape with Saturn at the start of April, and finds you on a good move along. You are on the threshold of so much more to come. Pluto, newly positioned in Aquarius, keeps you on a learning curve. Saturn, at the start of a two- and a half-year transit of Pisces, keeps you deeply immersed in the day-to-day operations. Mars, on a two-month tour of Cancer, keeps you feeling your way along potentials, goals and priorities. 

The full moon in Libra on April 5 can ignite passion and romance or see loving bonds strengthen. It could be time to move the relationship to a next level. On the other hand, the full moon could bring a relationship issue or financial matter to a head. If a relationship ends during this full moon, it is likely an agreement that is reached on both sides. The full moon could also signal a time to invest (or to pay up front) for later gain.   

April 10, 11 gives you more to go on. These dates set a mobilizing backdrop that can keep the momentum going through to solar eclipse in Aries of April 19. In a pressure building angle to Pluto in Aquarius, this eclipse happens just ten minutes short of Taurus. It could put you very close to procurement, attainment, or enlightenment. Mercury, which is inching very close to Uranus, turns retrograde just a little over 24 hours later (on April 21). Watch the day or two following for events to unfold, to springboard you or it, perhaps in some abrupt, unexpected, table-turn, unleashed, or reverse course way. 

Mercury retrograde continues in Taurus to May 14. As is typical for the cycle, it is a time to revisit, review, re-evaluate, and revise. Give yourself time to feel your way along. Setting the clock at a two-month timetable, by June 4, Mercury will finally meet with Uranus to launch into a next phase or page. 

LIBRA September 22 to October 23

Pluto’s transit through Aquarius is of benefit to your sign, especially so if you are born at the start of Libra (i.e., Sept 23). If you are born later in the sign, you will gain from Pluto in Aquarius down the road. Empowering for your sign, this breakthrough transit will help you to reinvent in the most advantageous and opportune of ways. It can help you to create success and happiness where you desire and deserve it the most.

Back to the month ahead, April opens with Mars/Saturn (trine) helping you to make the most out of your days and what you have to work with. For the next two months, Mars in Cancer puts added priority on safeguarding, and on taking care of business (self-care included). 

April 5 delivers a full moon in Libra in opposition to the sun and Chiron in Aries. Someone could make an entrance or an exit out of your life. When Chiron is in the mix, karmic destiny is in play. If a conflict arises, it is an opportunity to make a significant breakthrough, if not in terms of the relationship itself, then for yourself. At the karmic level, it is an opportunity to break the chains that bind or to reconnect with someone of significance. This full moon could be a precursor to the solar eclipse action on April 19. 

The solar eclipse in Aries (29:50) is just ten minutes away from Taurus. A hybrid eclipse is a two in one – it is both an annular and a total eclipse. That which thrusts into action holds an especially strong/vital life force to it. Endings and beginnings are intertwined. It can shatter a sound barrier (yours or theirs) or create a significant breakthrough in circumstances or consciousness. You could find yourself jettisoned into a whole new reality. You can feel the fullest impact of this eclipse if the eclipse makes a direct contact to your natal chart and especially if you are born on or near October 23. Otherwise, you may just witness the action through the happenings around you. The eclipse is in dynamic tension to Pluto in Aquarius and Mercury is just 2 degrees away from a conjunction with Uranus (ruler of Aquarius). Both transits pump up the pressure, stress, edginess, or excitability factor. 

In very close proximity to the eclipse, Mercury in Taurus turns retrograde on April 21. Just before hitting full tilt, or reaching a completion, conclusion or decision, something could sweep in and change everything. As is typical of the trickster cycle, Mercury retrograde can change the score, cause a delay, a detour, or sidetrack. To May 14, Mercury retrograde is best used to review, reassess, revise, reconnect, rebuild, or renegotiate. There can be an advantage in biding more time, or in taking more time to do it right and to gain more solid ground. To the plus, there is a potential to retrace steps, to repeat a success, to give it another try.   

By June 4, Mercury will finally catch up with Uranus (by conjunction). Expect for circumstances to take that long to play out and/or to move to the next phase.

SCORPIO October 23 to November 22

Thanks to Mars trine Saturn (both in complimentary water signs) you should feel a sense that things are falling into place quite well at the start of April. Saturn is at the start of a two- and a half-year transit through Pisces. Mars is at the start of a two-month transit through Cancer. Both help you to navigate your way into smoother sailing. 

April 5, the full moon in Libra, is in opposition to Chiron. Whether it is regarding your personal process or someone you are connected to, the full moon brings greater awareness to a work in progress, this regarding some deep healing. On a more mundane level (regarding work or equipment, etc.), the full moon may uncover something that needs repair. A hidden cost or unexpected expenditure can be in the mix too.

April 10, 11, can see you or it hit a fuller swing. April 19 delivers a hybrid solar eclipse at 29:50 Aries. This is just 10 minutes shy of Taurus. A hybrid eclipse is technically “two in one” – it shifts from an annular to a total eclipse. The symbolism of this is interesting to note when considering the late degree of the eclipse. Eclipses happen along the karmic axis and therefore often trigger a sense of fate or karmic recall. The final degree of any sign (aneretic degree) is of special note as it adds more karmic potency to completions. In general, a solar eclipse infuses a new cycle/new seed with more dynamic life force and potential. Something ends so something else can begin. The news will often report passages of people of note. 

The solar eclipse is in dynamic tension (square) to Pluto in Aquarius. At the same time, Mercury is just two degrees away from Uranus (ruler of Aquarius). Both added influences can increase the edginess, stress, pressure (atmospheric and/or weatherwise), abruptness, and unexpected element. Watch the days that follow for this eclipse to keep on a high trigger rollout. Something or someone could burst onto the scene. This eclipse could jettison the action but note that Mercury in Taurus will turn retrograde just a little more than 24 hours later, on April 21. It could be a matter of promise but no delivery. Or the action could get sidetracked. The sudden and unexpected is to be expected. To the plus, the eclipse could springboard something opportune, in which case, Mercury retrograde will simply require more investment (time, money, heart); that you give it your full attention while you get it better sorted out. Mercury retrograde continues to May 14. It can put you on a sidetrack or time extension. Consider this two-month period as a staging time, a preliminary phase. Allow for the unfolding moment to better inform you. Mercury will complete with Uranus on June 4. By that time, you will reach the next starting gate. 

SAGITTARIUS November 22 – December 21

Pluto in Aquarius can prompt you to reinvent in a myriad of ways. It can stimulate fresh interests or ideas, or an entirely new lifestyle. This year’s transit is only an introduction to so much more to come over the years ahead. Pay attention to premonitions. Entertain possibilities, explore more, see where it takes you. Saturn in Pisces can find you taking a deeper dive into your emotional body and into soul searching. Allow yourself the time to do so. The transit can unlock a wealth of untapped potential. For the next two months Mars in Cancer keeps you feeling your way along. What is it that brings comfort to your heart and soul? What do you want next? What do you need to feel more secure and at peace? 

The full moon in Libra on April 5 is in opposition to Chiron in Aries (and the sun of course). It could dial up something social or find you spending more than usual. The full moon could provide an opportunity to share, to announce, to reconnect (with friends, fans or loved ones), to cash in on a favour or a past good deed. Watch for the workings of synchronicity or fate at play. Someone may look to you for advice or mentoring – or vice versa. 

The hybrid solar eclipse on April 19 happens at 29:50 Aries, just 10 minutes shy of Taurus. A solar eclipse marks an auspicious time to dive into something new. The final degree of any sign correlates to a significant culmination of the past and seeding for the future. Accompanying this eclipse are two significant contributors. Pluto in Aquarius in dynamic tension applies significant pressure and force to what is on a building track. Mercury in Taurus is just two degrees away from a conjunction with Uranus (ruler of Aquarius) but begins retrograde (on April 21) before completing the task. Don’t expect things to go according to expectations and allow extra time to get yourself or it sorted out. Adjust as the moment dictates. Mercury retrograde in Taurus can require more investment of time or money. As is typical of the cycle, there may be more healing or repair work too. Mercury retrograde ends on May 14 and completes with Uranus by June 4. Consider the next two months as a work in progress.

CAPRICORN December 21 to January 20

Pluto has just left Capricorn, but it is not gone for long. To mid-June, Pluto provides an introductory tour of Aquarius, (what will be its home base as from 2024 to 2044). This transit will help you to discover capacities and resources you did not know you had. In other words, the transit will introduce you to a whole new side of yourself.  

April opens with Mars and Saturn in new signs and in good angle to one another (trine). Saturn has just begun a two- and a half-year transit through Pisces. Mars has just begun a two-month transit through Cancer. Both help you to establish a better emotional rapport with those who matter most to you. (In addition to loved ones, that list includes, friends, colleagues and clients.) 

April 5 delivers a full moon in Libra, in opposition to the sun and Chiron in Aries. It is an appropriate time to renegotiate a contract, to pursue a legal undertaking or to enlist or recruit more support. On another note, priorities, needs, or interests can compete for your attention. You could find yourself on the short end of the stick. You may find it difficult to be diplomatic, to cooperate or accommodate, but it sets up the best route for a win/win. Overall and despite all, this full moon suggests that things can work out well. 

April 19 delivers a hybrid solar eclipse at 29:50 Aries, just ten minutes off Taurus. It sets a backdrop for a completion and a springboard of significance. The eclipse can be a circuit-breaking influence regarding repeating themes and karmas, but note that Mercury in Taurus turns retrograde just a little over 24 hours later. This backtrack can extend the finishing and foundation laying track through the retrograde cycle (April 21 to May 14) to June 4. At the time of the eclipse, Mercury is 2 degrees away from Uranus due to the retrograde, and their meet up won’t happen until June 4. Expect to be consumed until then with a particular matter or undertaking.

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18/19

Pluto will offer a preview of its workings in Aquarius through mid-June. If you are born on or near January 21 you may witness this influence through circumstances, through instinctual triggers, or through a shift of the mind’s eye. Saturn, at the start of its two- and a half-year transit through Pisces, will continue to dissolve barriers that keep you stuck in a repeating loop. Opening the month, Mars, at the start of a two-month tour of Cancer, keeps you feeling your way along a productive track. You should feel you are gaining good ground, that you can stay well organized and on top of what you need to accomplish.

The full moon in Libra on April 5 is in opposition to the sun and Chiron in Aries. The day can take on a life of its own. A sense of déjà vu or of karmic replay or rendezvous can accompany the action track. Say it, do it. Go with inspirations and impulses of the moment. One thing leads to another.

April 19 delivers a hybrid solar eclipse at 29:50 Aquarius, just ten minutes short of Taurus. The eclipse gains extra turbo from Pluto in Aquarius. As stated above, if your birthday happens near the start of the month, April 19 to 21 could impact you in a dynamic, even life-altering way. It could jettison you into something quite unexpected. Also of influence regarding the eclipse action, Mercury is just 2 degrees away from meeting up with Uranus but will turn retrograde just before it does. From April 21 to May 14, Mercury retrograde in Taurus puts added attention on matters to do with finances and personal life matters (i.e. home, real estate, and family). A key person (likely a family member, i.e. sibling or child) can need more from you or occupy more of your attention. As is also typical of the cycle, you could reconnect with someone from your past or revisit places you have been to or lived at previously. 

Coinciding with the eclipse, Mercury’s reverse motion could produce a delay or a sidetrack, or it could completely kibosh something that is in the works. Something that seemed viable or desirable could lose its appeal. To the plus, Mercury retrograde can give you a time extension that may be of benefit. Consider the next two months as a work in progress. The second half of May can see you make good progress. By June 4, Mercury will finally meet with Uranus, which will complete this pocket of time and move you onto a next phase or track.

PISCES February 18/19 to March 19/20

Saturn has recently entered Pisces and will spend the next 2 ½ years in your sign. Mars has just entered Cancer and will spend the next two months in this complimentary water sign. Overall, Mars in trine to Saturn sets a relatively smooth sailing backdrop to ease you through the start of the month. 

The full moon in Libra on April 5 is in opposition to the sun and Chiron in Aries. This full moon can bring you full circle or provide an opportunity to move forward regarding something that was left hanging or incomplete from the middle of March. There is an opportunity to reassess, to re-evaluate, to bid again – or to walk away. No matter how it plays out, it paves the way for improvement regarding a relationship matter, a contract agreement or a financial matter (in other words, an investment of time, heart or money.)

The hybrid solar eclipse on April 19 happens at very last degree of Aries, just 10 minutes shy of Taurus. The last degree of any sign is of special note as it indicates a completion of significance. On a bigger picture scale, it is indicative of circuit breaking regarding karmic repetition which underscores the karmic implication that is a signature of all eclipses. The April 19 eclipse is also in dynamic tension to Pluto in Aquarius (square) which adds significant pressure to whatever is stuck, blocked, or on brew. Watch the day or two that follows to trigger a significant release or unleashing. Also accompanying the eclipse is the transit of Mercury, just two degrees away from a meet up with Uranus in Taurus. “Almost but not quite” – just before the duo meet, Mercury begins a three-week retrograde cycle. This retrograde cycle can delay completion. As is also typical of Mercury retrograde, the next few weeks could take you on a temporary interlude, a sidetrack, or prompt a change of priority, mind, heart, involvement, etc. Overall, the full moon and lunar eclipse set an agenda that could extend/keep you occupied through the start of June. Mercury will finally meet with Uranus on June 4. Expect to see your way clear by then and/or to be onto a next phase or stage.

Pluto in Aquarius, the Evolutionary Astrology Perspective:

Leaving no stone unturned, Pluto’s transit through Aquarius marks a time of significant and lasting change at all levels of existence. A preview of the future and its mandate is already well in evidence. It is readily witnessed through increasing threats to survival on the planet caused by Mother Nature and by human choices, through innovations in science and technology that serve to accelerate the revolutionising of daily life, and through the growing number of souls that are awakening to a higher level of consciousness. Considering that Pluto correlates to evolution and Aquarius to liberation, the potential for profound inner change and soul growth is at its prime. How can you best ready yourself for the years ahead?
