STARGAZING — Week of March 27th through April 2nd, 2017

Mar 26, 2017 | Monthly Astrology|Stargazing

There are two sign changes this week, as we enter into the month of April. The fire element is very strong now (Aries, Sagittarius), and that means we are all busy, busy, busy with our passion and creativity. There is a heavy action emphasis, not the energy to sit quietly and meditate. It’s time to shake off the winter blahs, prepare your garden, and think about Spring. Do anything you can to move your body.

The New Moon in Aries is on Monday the 27th opens the week, with an excitement and drive as the first day of spring. The only real caution is not to allow that excessive fire energy to get caught up in shiny daydreams that can lead to a string of half-finished projects. If you’re planning to begin something new for this year, this is the time to begin, before Mercury turns retrograde on the 9th.

It is time to explore new opportunities and have the courage to try out new activities and meet new people. Ambitious Mars is now moving towards alignment with dwarf planet Ceres. She was the goddess who was a healer and brought the harvest to market, so let’s do a bit of business together, healer goddess.

Use this time in April to put energy into new business projects or activities that produce tangible results. Since this combination is also making harmony to transforming Pluto, it is important to quietly stand in your power and not play second fiddle to anyone.

Wednesday March 29th brings inspiration and professionalism to any project. It’s a great day for a business lunch or to share ideas for future projects. You can use Wednesday to communicate where your boundaries are, too.

Thursday the 30th has Jupiter squaring Pluto. These two planets have been dancing together for a couple months. Things can get a little complicated, which may bring you an important legal decision or create a moral dilemma. There will be a return to these same issues at the August eclipse as well as another Jupiter-Pluto square.

On Sunday, April 2nd Venus backs out of Aries into Pisces. This can bring a sigh of relief as we can feel the masculine pressure of Aries easing off from the inner turmoil that has been going on since mid-February.

Venus continues moving retrograde until the 15th, but moving into compassionate Pisces can bring forth a new vision. There is an overlap here as Mercury turns retrograde on April 9th -May 3rd It will be a changeable spring, adding lots of twists, turns and surprises, without a doubt. So as we welcome April at the end of this week, be sure to roll up your sleeves and get busy as you move toward your personal success.
