April is here! 

I hope as we enter our 2nd, or third week for some folks, of isolation, that we are able to find a rhythm to the madness.

I am not going to sugar coat right now, this week is another banger. We have so many transits symbolizing the breaking down and ending to old structures in place.

Mars enters Aquarius Monday, and soon after meets up with Saturn on Tuesday, making a powerful Conjunction at 0 degrees. This marks the beginning of a cycle that should bring social and political progress in the weeks to come. On Friday, Venus enters Gemini

(The Lovers card in the tarot), where she is in her ruling sign in esoteric astrology, and will stay here until August this year. Shortly after, Mercury makes a conjunction with Neptune in Pisces for the 2nd time this year, activating similar themes we worked through during the retrograde cycle we had in February. But wait! Just when you thought, that's gotta be it right? Wrong! Saturday Venus in Gemini makes a trine to Saturn in Aquarius, later followed by an exact conjunction between Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn. 

Whenever we have such a jam packed week of transits, I love to see it as an opportunity for learning as a young astrologer. As astrologers we spend so much time studying the past, and cycles of the past, trying to find themes to make sense of the nature of our world. The framework for these transits and seeing certain cycles repeated in history, even when everything feels terrible, for some reason gives me a sense of ease in feeling like everything is unfolding as it should. Hearing research projects other astrologers are doing finding patterns of pandemics in history from an astrological lense, gives me the sense that there is a wisdom to the math of this whole thing that we barely grasp as a species.

This is a prominent time in history, and what you are going through on an individual level, feeds into the soup that is the fabric of the cosmos. We all by osmosis are influencing the energy of this world, and this is a powerful time to be working on self awareness of how your imprint, no matter what size, is influencing your relationships and the world around you.

Take time this week to acknowledge, validate, and move through your triggers and emotional responses to those around you. Ask yourself the “why” behind what makes you “feel” things. Ask yourself what energy you are bringing to the table. Take responsibility for what you can do, and spend less time giving energy to what you feel stifled by.

Monday 3/30

Moon in Gemini

Moon void of course square Neptune in Pisces 8:10 am

Mars enters Aquarius 12:43 pm

Moon inconjunct Jupiter in Capricorn 5:52 pm

Moon inconjunct Pluto in Capricorn 6:55 pm

Today may be emotionally hard for a lot of us as we have a lot of aspects that are challenging to feel right now. With the Moon in Gemini today, we are prone to overthinking ( 8 of Swords). We have a need to communicate our feelings during this time, or perhaps express them in the form of journaling or writing. With a square to Neptune in the morning hours, our perceptions of reality may be skewed and we are likely to fall into illusions about what we are experiencing in life. It is likely we could feel emotionally unstable today. It is valid to be worried about the future, but try to find a way to get grounded in the smaller things you can control. 

Tuesday 3/31

Moon enters Cancer 4:43 am

Moon inconjunct Mars in Aquarius 5:39 am

Moon inconjunct Saturn in Aquarius 5:56 am

Moon square Chiron in Aries 3:29 pm

Two tarot cards I have been pulling quite a lot over the last week are the Knight of Wands and the Knight of Swords. I have pulled it in readings for others, and I have received them in readings for myself. The relevance astrologically for these cards coming up is mostly likely due to the fact that Mars has been making its way to Saturn over the last week, and today the two finally make a conjunction in the fixed sign of Aquarius. The archetypes of the Knights often have a Mars like quality, energy that is impulsively charging ahead, for better or worse. The Knights are ruled by the element Air. In the Knight of Wands we have Air/Fire, and in the Knight of Swords we have Air/Air. Mars being the ruler of Aries, entering the sign of Aquarius, we could say that the archetype for the Knight of Wands is an accurate depiction of energy a lot of us may feel in the days ahead. The energy of Mars conjunct Saturn lends itself to a hardworking and disciplined energy that is also potentially reactive, aggressive, and impatient.

On a personal level, we may feel a lot of ambition and motivation in the house of our chart that we have this transit passing through, but we may find ourselves frustrated with anything stifling us or getting in the way of our ability to move certain things forward at this time. Self awareness when it comes to our emotional reactions will be key this week. There is potential for us to take things out on others, or project frustrations on those we share space with. As a collective we may see tensions between the public and government systems beginning to increase as people demand more from our world leaders.
