April 2024 - Eclipse!
What you are doing now governs your future.

The Moon void tables have been restored on that page

As mentioned last month, Mercury is retrograde April 1 to 25. We have been feeling it since March 20. Give extra attention to the details of life. Back up the computers, leave early, and check the tires on the car just to mention a few things that might disrupt life. Markets can go up or down. Information is more uncertain than usual.

Tempers flare while Mercury is retrograde in fiery Aries. Many of us push the pedal to the metal which is what we should not be doing. Impatience as well as entitlement are abundant.

Adding fuel to this Aries fire is the new Moon/solar eclipse April 8 at 1:21 pm CDT. The current eclipse season began with the full Moon March 25 in Libra. Libra is peace and Aries is war. This new Moon is aligned with Chiron which represents our fears and challenges in life. Some have labeled it the Chironeclipse. The path of the eclipse stretches across central Mexico, parts of Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine and southern Canada. It is said the path of an eclipse area is most affected in terms of future events.

Gatherings, especially those that are politically charged, become out of control during this time. Violence may directed towards leaders or candidates. If you go someplace crowded, make sure there is security in place. This is a time when the world must come to negotiate ourselves back into balance. Extremism and authoritarian people and leaders will be put on notice. The small minded will wave their weapons. Bullies eventually do fail and this eclipse could bring about big events that bring the downfall of those types of people. Showdowns are a theme for the next six months as this eclipse influences events over the coming months.

On a positive note, society advances as many of us cut a new path in our lives. Opportunities come out of the blue and we are ready to explore areas of life and the Universe that we have never thought to explore.

An eclipse at nineteen degrees Aries last occurred April 8, 2005.

On April 23 2005 Jawed Karim up loaded the first video clip to YouTube.

Cairo, Egypt experienced terrorist attacks on April 30. There were violent attacks in Iran, Pakistan along with anti US demonstrations in Afghanistan.

Houston, Texas had the largest evacuation in history due to hurricane
Rita September 18-25, 2005.

Also, in September John Roberts became chief justice of the US Supreme Court.

The first space shuttle since the Columbia tragedy was launched July 26, 2005. The Discovery is aptly named for Aries adventurous spirit.

The White Sox won the world series for the first time in 88 years.

There is always hope.

Jupiter and Uranus

Another big event in April is that Jupiter conjunct Uranus in Taurus. This happens April 20 but we feel the effects beginning April 6. This last occurred January 2011, September 2010, and June 2010.

We never really know what is going to happen when Uranus is involved, but with Uranus and Jupiter in Taurus there promise big financial moves up or down. This is another aspect that can bring protests from the masses due to the inequalities that exist. Inflation could be the big issue and will be addressed. Mars in Pisces is sextile both Jupiter and Uranus on the 19
th so we have new leaders emerging in our personal lives and across the world. This is a productive time among the rest of the drama. Expand your horizons during this innovative adventurous time. Innovation it the best word to describe Jupiter conjunct Uranus.

So far it seems like a pretty intense month. The good news is that we start off with Venus conjunct Neptune in Pisces. This is love of the highest order, especially for Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio. Rescue something living. If you can’t rescue a living being, go to the big hardware store and get a plant before the staff kills it.

Venus moves through Aries April 4 to 29. Venus in Aries has many of us from every sign ready to jump into love. The past does not need to be processed. This is really great, but have a parachute before jumping. Aries looks great and so do Sagittarius and Leo.

Venus is sextile Pluto in Aquarius April 6. Relationships that are already happening come to a deeper level of passion and commitment. Those who start a relationship under this transit experience big life changes. No need to broadcast the details with friends though. Keep the lid on and let it simmer as the planets suggest.

April 10

Mars is conjunct Saturn April 10. Saturn is the cement that bonds us so this can be a time of commitment. Saturn equals responsibility. Mars wants to get a move on, but Saturn says we have other important stuff to do now. Plus, Mercury is retrograde.

April 11

Mercury retrograde backs over the Sun. While this is a busy day of handling Mercury retrograde mishaps, the Moon in Taurus is kind and grounding. Don’t let the details ruin a great day. Also, remember the Moon is void 5:04 am to 7:59 am CDT. The commute will be crazy in the central and mountain time zones.

April 18 - 21

Retrograde Mercury is conjunct Venus in Aries. Some of us are rethinking situations we just started. What seemed like a good idea is not so appealing right now. Give it time and do not jump ship yet.

The Sun moves through Taurus April 19 to May 20. Life becomes a bit less frenetic and we begin to feel more grounded.

The full Moon at 4 degrees Scorpio April 23 at 6:50 pm CDT.

The Moon in Scorpio and the Sun in Taurus are square Pluto at this full Moon. This brings amazing changes and the ability to accomplish so much. It also brings out the worst in some people at. If it were not for Mercury retrograde, this would be a great time to initiate new projects. We have the ability to conquer struggles and deal with bad habits and bad people. This is an intense full Moon in an intense month. Play nice. Play may just be what we need at this full Moon. Say what needs to be expressed.

April 28 - 30

Mars is conjunct Neptune in Pisces. This is a great time to chase your dreams but balance idealism with some realism. Consider the types of protein you eat and if you are getting enough of this fuel

Venus moves into Taurus and is square Pluto April 30. Sudden attractions and emotional highs and lows all happen. Slow down and make sure the current attractions are not fatal.

Mars moves through Aries April 30 to June 8. While Venus and the Sun are now in calmer Taurus, we still have lots of hostility to deal with in our private worlds and across the planet.

Stay safe and focus on peace and kindness this month.

Consummate Relationships

With Mercury retrograde this is not a good time to initiate a relationship. May 7 from 10:22 pm CDT to May 8 at 4:55 pm CDT is the next good time to consummate a relationship.

You may want to get an app called Planetary Hours and consummate during the Venus hour.

Read the summary with your calendar that shows the whole month on one page. Read through the intro and make note of the days that I point out. Mark the new Moon and the full Moon. The days between the new Moon and the full Moon are when you generally want to start something that you want to grow. Do look at that Moon void chart and take a rest on those days. I have discovered that no matter what I plan, it turns out another way on a Moon void day. Anything you try to accomplish will turn out with unexpected results.

Make note of the three days before the new Moon. People usually get anxious during these days because the phone does not ring or they feel confused or simply nothing is happen. That is because it is wind down time before the new Moon. You will usually notice that the action of life picks up once the new Moon occurs. Also note the days that planets change directions, especially Mercury retrograde.

Hopefully these suggestions will give you a bit of a start to maneuvering through life with astrology.
