Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a great April so far. We are getting ready to have our April Full Moon, Pink Moon, in Libra and preparing to enter into the zodiac sign of Taurus. There are going to be some movements at the end of the month that will impact us. If you missed the show, or just want a recap, it is written below. I will be talking more about this full moon, as it will feel like a blue moon and it will also get us back on track with our lunar cycle.
Now what is going on in April….let’s do a little recap…
March the 28th Mercury will station and turn direct. But remember we will be in his shadow until April 10th, now what “being in his shadow” means is that he will be going through the degrees that he previously traveled through.
Venus moved into the sign of Pisces on the 26th and Mars moves into Gemini on March 31st. We had our new moon in Aries on the 5th, which was my solar return, which squared Saturn and Pluto. During this time, the South Node crosses Pluto which will bring in Karmic energy. On the 9th Venus met with Neptune which adds some very interesting energy to the mix. And then on the 10th of April, Jupiter stationed and went Rx in the sign of Sagittarius. Which brings us to now…but before I get into all of that, I really want to talk a bit about what is going on this month.
For April we will have 3 planets going Rx and they are our outer planets, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto. Honestly, most of you may feel like you are coming out of a haze, and that is because March was a bit foggy. We had a big influence of Neptunian energy affecting us through the planets Mercury and Venus that are spending time in Pisces, our communication and what we value. Neptune’s sign is Pisces, so it does have the dreamy energy to it, but Neptune likes to take it a step further. Neptune can take us into the waters of illusions, and it will add a veil of illusion for any sign it travels through or any planet it meets with. It’s not surprising that Neptune is associated with Hollywood, which is known as the Land of Illusions. And let think about what Hollywood represents…it is movies, it is highest ideals put into visual story form, it is some one’s deepest darkest fears realized through the movie screen… it’s your wildest dreams or your worst nightmares appearing to be real. And this story is a perspective (good or bad) or another individual. And for me, I use it as a distraction, I use it as ‘my get away’ from reality…a place where my mind can relax and rest. So yes, this energy can take us to the place of escapism. When I think of watching a movie or a tv show, I am wanting to rest my mind, to unwind, to get lost in a comedy, love story, or someone acting out heroism. It is similar to a magic trick where the magician is getting you to look over here at the fancy movements going on getting your attention focused elsewhere so you don’t see what is really going on to pull off the trick. So yes, the magician may captivate you with his looks, his prompts, unusual or elaborate hand gestures, but what he is allowing you to see isn’t exactly what is really happening. Especially mixed with Mercury, it is a time that we can’t really trust what is being said and played out. Now Pisces represents the spiritual energy, so yes there could be someone/ or some path that can create an illusion for you as well…such as urging us to disconnect from our 3D world, disconnect from reality thus getting us lost in this land of fantasy. Just keep remembering that we are Spiritual Beings having a HUMAN experience, not the other way around. When we do allow ourselves to get lost, we can ultimately lose our inner light as well. With it influencing Venus it will even cause confusion over what we value, what we love and hold dear. Don’t let yourself be swayed by others thoughts or ideas of how things should be…don’t compromise your integrity and morals…as well as your intelligence. We can’t allow ourselves to get lost in the fantasy and spectacular dreamy illusions that are being pushed in front of our faces…we have to be grounded enough to see through that veil. Now this energy is will become clearer mid-month when Mercury will move into Aries and I’ll get to that in just a minute. Mercury had his exact conjunction with Neptune on April 2nd or 3rd, depending on where you are in the world. Venus in Pisces will get us to really in tune with our intuition, in this placement She is pulling together her all that she has learned through her travels through the zodiac. Now on the 20th, She will move into Aries and this is a shift that will be felt, it is one that will put us at a reality check as we will definitely take us into new territory.
On the 10th, the Sun will square Saturn and it could make you feel like you are stuck, Saturn is about our boundaries. If you will remember, when we had our new moon on the 5th at 15 degrees Aries, it and the sun was squaring with Saturn and then Pluto. This square can have us in somewhat of a power struggle, maybe taking back more of your power. Pluto destructs to reconstruct so there could be some rebuilding in what you allow in your life, this goes into giving too much of yourself or your possessions (money) to something/someone that is not reciprocating you. So by the 13th, when the exact square happens, we will want to get to the bottom of things, we are really taking a hard look at things and Saturn is giving us a huge reality check and make us answer for yourself. At this time Mercury and Saturn will have a very supportive conversation which will bring clarity and definition to that which was veiled from us. Remember, Mercury has been in floating in the waters of Pisces so what is being communicated to us has been foggy. Honestly, during this time you could feel like you’re recovering…recovering from the disillusions. On the 10th Jupiter will station and proceed in a retrograde path. When we go into retrograde we are doing the re’s and it internal. Right before this movement, Jupiter and Neptune will form a loose square and this combination can be the big fantasy influence. This position says we can manifest anything we want, then Jupiter will trine with Uranus (in Taurus) and this is smooth flowing energy. Combined this energy will influence us to want to create communities of like-minded people. This supports escaping the rind and grind of the city energy, and to move away to the country to live off the land, and to begin to live with the natural rhyme of Mother Earth. Now with this aspect, you have to work to ground yourself as you will lose reality..here and now. Now luckily on the 14th, the sun will harmonize with Jupiter giving us a renewed self-confidence, hope, and optimism.
Now I don’t want to sound too negative about Pisces because it does represent our dreams and magic…the wonderous possibilities. It is transmutation at it’s best, as it is ‘death welcoming rebirth’ as it is the period that ushers in the Spring. Its influence gives us that encouraging a belief that things will move forward, bringing us more clarity and allowing the illusions to be lifted.
This is a time that we need to keep our focus and to keep our eye on the greater possibilities that we are trying to create. Mars entering Gemini at the beginning of the moth can have us feeling a bit scattered, as we know where we want to go but we are unsure how to get there.
On the 12th Venus will square Jupiter. Venus in Pisces can have us seeing what we want to see in our relationships and Jupiter enhances this energy. This is a time when we can overcommit ourselves, promises will be made and not kept, now with Venus hanging out with mercury in Pisces, She will be called to listen to her intuition…do rely on words or what you see, instead look beyond the surface, search for the realness of the situation. She will also be sextile pluto…now remember pluto overrules other planets as he destroys in order to create and it is our psyche…and Venus will be looking at how she wants to be loved and received. He is helping her lose the unhealthy energy from her past, to create healthy relationships and healthy ways to care for herself and to love herself and others and ways that she receives that affection.
This leads us up to a grand fire trine that we will have on April 14th. A trine is shown on charts as a triangle, this trine will involve the Moons at 24 degrees Leo, Sun 24 degrees Aries, and Jupiter at 24 degrees Sagittarius. 24 is reduced down to 6, in numerology 6 is unconditional love, compassion, empathy, and Gaia…Mother Earth. It is considered a perfect number as it represents balance and harmony. It is about security and responsibility and this grand fire trine is all about independence and doing things your own way, it is about creation and what you are passionate about….this is the perfect energy to start a new business and take that leap. Jupiter enhances energy, and this combination is accelerated energy and making things happen. Leo influence is that of willing something to happen…this energy prepares you for what is next. Be ready because this energy will be that igniting spark to push us forward.
Now yes, this energy can be consuming, but we are being grounded and supported a big… the planets in Capricorn.
Now speaking of capricorn….
While the first half of the month of April is foggy, or muddy, unclear and confusing, the 2nd half Saturn and Pluto energy will be very strong…really looking at boundaries and power that is being used..good or bad. Saturn brings our boundaries, it tells us where not to cross over Pluto brings up the shadow side of the sign that it’s in, in this case, Capricorn, and as we know Capricorn is about our governments that those institutions of control and it is very conservative. Now Pluto loves to reconstruct things after first destructing it. If you can remember on the last show I spoke of the Protestant Reformation that began in 1517, when the priest and scholar Martin Luther presented the 95 theses that condemned the excesses and corruption of the Roman Catholic Church. These 95 revolutionary opinions that would then begin the Protestant Reformation. True, it wasn’t until 1529 that the word “Protestant” appeared. But it was during this Saturn and Pluto dance that Luther and a number of Princes and other supporters protested the Church, stating that their allegiance to God trumped their allegiance to the emperor. They were demanding a reformation as they felt the church was being concerned more with money than souls.
The revolutionary belief in the reformation is the foundation of the Protestant Reformation that drastically changed Western civilization. Now if you want to read more about that you can look of the Edict of Worms or even look up the priest Martin Luther. Now, this energy is just preparing us for a major conjunction that will be happening early in the year 2020. This conjunction will be between Pluto and Saturn at the 22 degrees of Capricorn.
Back on the 12-13th when the Pluto squared the sun, this helped get rid of the negative EGO. Now I am sure many of you have heard of getting rid of the EGO and really that is not a good thing to do, because it is your EGO that protects you.
So stay tuned because this is an energy that will be visited throughout this year.
On the 17th Mercury will move into Aries at 2am est and this will bring in a sweeping energy of clarity. Mercury will also be meeting Chiron so expect deep wounds being revealed. Mars is in Gemini so you will really need to watch what you say, you could say something without thinking and it could affect you for a good while.
This is taking us to our full moon in Libra on the 19th. Now this moon will feel like a blue moon because we just had a full moon in Libra at the end of March. I have had several comments asking about why Easter is so late this year…well normally Easter is the first Sunday after the Spring Equinox, but according to the Christian calendar the astronomical calculations have it coming after the 2nd full moon. And I know this show is the day before the full moon, but I wanted to discuss it now so you will have time to prepare.
So for our full moon…The Full moon will be on the 19th at 713 am est, 413 am pt and 1213pm UK time. And it will take place in the astrological sign of Libra. Yes, in March we did have a full moon in the early degrees of Libra, and this is why it is feeling like a blue moon. Now since this one is going to take place in the later degrees of Libra, at 29 degrees, it will be working in the shadow parts…especially in relationships…all. It is going to be the energy of ‘where have I over exceeded myself” where have I compromised myself, my beliefs, my integrity? In these later degrees, this full moon will help us show us where we are shown how we allowed certain things to happen to us, how we allowed a person to take advantage, we are being illuminated to our part in our lessons and all that we have been through. We are shown the reality of things. We have to understand that there are some people that we just can’t help and we are not responsible for their choices and actions, we can not take the responsibility for others baggage, they will choose..some people are so stuck in their bitterness and keep repeating the same old stories of their lives. They keep choosing the same things that hurt them over and over. This energy is giving us a deep understanding of an ending, releasing and moving on. And most importantly this energy will show us when we were out of our power, and it will show us how we got there so we can stand fully in our power. This moon shows us that we are only responsible for our Self, our healing, our choices, and embody it. Take back your power! Now to add to this energy, during this full moon the moon will actually be void-of-course, meaning it is preparing to move into the sign of Scorpio. And the day after the sun will move into the sign of Uranus that is stationed in Taurus and we will feel this shift, Uranus’ energy is like a lightning bolt. And we will feel another jolt from Uranus as the sun will have a slight opposition to this moon. Now, this energy is working with people in many different ways. Different signs represent different areas in our lives, and the lesson is to show us where we are weak, where we need to be healed, what needs tweaking. Earth signs represent how we show up in the world, how we take care of ourselves physically. This includes being shown where we need to stand up for yourself, standing up for what is wrong. Maybe at first, you didn’t know how this will help us to gather up all that we have learned to use it to push forward. This is about evolving our soul, bringing us to new awareness. When Mercury moved into Aries, this is going to give us a new way to ways to express or I should say speak what we know is right.
Now one influence here that I am sure many of you are feeling is the sense of an ending. Now Scorpio’s planet Pluto is in Capricorn, Capricorn is about being/standing in your power. So this full moon, being void of course at this full moon, will give us a moment to process what is going on in our lives. There is something being resolved here, and with that, of course, we feel it physically and emotionally. During this full moon, Venus will still be in later degrees of Pisces, so she is also in its shadow side and she is standing there looking at things with a different perspective. She is culminating her lessons, her abilities, what all she has gone through, bringing it all together to prepare her to step into the new beginning. When she moves into Aries, she will be ready to go for what she wants, all of these energies combined is allowing you to stand up for you, to get a backbone, where you need to step up in your life.
This moon is allowing us to move through this realization, to see that this is what is needed now..this is a time to take a stand, to educate others, to show protect integrity. We are truly being shown that change starts with the Self. Gandhi said ‘Be the change you want to see in the world’. And speaking as a true Aries, it starts with ME. I have really seen this in my life. Now, this is not on a note of extreme, this is grounded energy. This is the energy where you have been there and you know, this is calculated, planned and steady energy. This is about evolving, believing in yourself, trust in you, rising above.
Capricorn energy has really been felt, and being in your power is what it is all about. Pisces had to play out the energy of culmination afterward, looking back on your life. Mars in Gemini, we need to stay focused, keep your eye on where you are going, and using these tools can help you get to where you are going. The Saturn and Pluto dance will keep going on throughout this year. By the end of this month, we are going to have our 3 planets going Rx, this is our outer planets and it would seem as if things are stuck on the outside, and there is a huge influence of karma happening through these energies…south node is moving through Capricorn right next to Saturn and Pluto. There is a lot of dynamic energy happening right now, so take advantage of it. Listening to your intuition will be vital.
Sun in Aries reminds you of your sovereignty, and it reminds you to follow the path that is right for you, what feels good to you as well as respecting your morals, integrity, and your mental, emotional, and physical downtime. There is NEW energy rushing forward right now, and there are some major shifts happening this month, next steps and path one that is better in alignment with who you are.
On the 17th mercury’s movement will bring us a new message of how we will move forward in our life. This is an exciting month and brings us new hope as we step out on our new path as we release the past.
This is great energy to take your power back, stepping up to your highest potential. We are completing things, understanding your role in your relationships, as well as noticing the patterns in your life, you’re looking around at your environment and seeing how it relates to you and what you believe and feel is right. Venus is Libra’s planets, so she is ruling this moon, so she adds the energy of protecting and loving yourself. This moon is objective, so you’re able to see the bigger picture.
This full moon will be on Good Friday, with Easter the following Sunday…so for those of you who celebrate..happy Easter! We’ve been off a bit with our lunar cycle, so after this full moon, we will be back on track.
This is some intense energy, but we can use this energy to work through it.
Tune in to TheCauldron.net this Thursday, April 18, 2019, at 9pm eastern time for more information on this Libra full moon. We are coming into Taurus season and it will add a different energetic expression as well.
