This month Mercury turns Direct on April 4th so is a time to work on all the projects you’ve had on hold the last three weeks. Also in the news: Venus moves from Taurus to Gemini, helping you become more flexible in your relationships, and Pluto turns Retrograde on April 10th, until September 18th, 2012, indicating a good time to turn within and take care of your inner growth and transforming old patterns into new ones.
The Full Moon happens this month on April 6th at
17º 23′ Libra and in the Northern Hemisphere is known as the Pink Moon that celebrates the return of spring with pink flowers.
The key theme here is creating balance while relating to yourself and others. With an exact square between Mars & Venus, this is an excellent time to maintain a low profile when relating with loved ones or business partners, as emotions will run high, with the potential for heated arguments.
A close square between Venus and Neptune/Chiron, emphases the need for authentic relationships and personal growth. With Neptune/Chiron opposing Mars we will need to be on the look-out of what is actually fact and what is an imaging of our over active emotions.
Neptune trine Saturn enhances the idea of staying home alone to do your inner work and meditation instead of going out and raising hoopla with friends on the Full Moon.
The New Moon on 21st April at 1º Taurus is as complex as last month because the heavens have produced another Grand Kite configuration. This time we have the same Grand Trine in Earth signs: Pluto in Capricorn, Sun/Moon in Taurus, and Mars in Virgo, with the Neptune/Chiron in Pisces sextile both the Sun/Moon and Pluto, along with Neptune/Chiron opposing Mars in Virgo.
In summary this complex configuration is reminding us that in this important time of seeding ideas and visions, we need to recognize that the Earth is our Mother and to form Right Relationship with her and all her inhabitants. It’s also an excellent time to use creative visualization to change our cultural dream so it begins to serve humanity instead of colliding with it. In this way you can ride the higher energies and not get sucked into the doom and gloom of Sun/Moon opposing Saturn.
