STARGAZINGWeek of April 13th to April 19th, 2015

daffodilsTheres a bit of a chill in the air this week. The high energy of last week takes a nosedive with a bit of a warning as well. In spite of all that, it looks like you will be able to end the week on a cheery note.

Monday brings minor challenges, mostly associated with needing to move faster in the world while experiencing emotional resistance. Like completing your Income tax filing in the US.

On Tuesday the 14th Mercury whirls out of Aries and lands in grounded Taurus. This change means that communications, travel and commerce will slow down to a less exciting but more thorough pace, bringing order and regularity. This is how ideas and projects are nurtured and begin to grow and manifest. There are challenges to the planet Saturn, the astrological ruler of taxes. It will be interesting to see if there are a lot of last minute people delaying filing their taxes this year, or at the very least, making a last-minute, fast and furious effort. Careful, this is how mistakes are made. Best to slow down or file an extension.

Pluto turns retrograde in Capricorn on Thursday the 16th, and continues moving backward until September. This is the time when the dragon sleeps, giving you the time to review your life, dig down deep and identify all people, projects, living space, or work that has passed it expiration date. If you proceed to listen to the Universe and get rid of anything that is no longer useful or viable in your life over the next five months, youll be set to welcome the new energy when Pluto moves forward in September.
