Before Mercury moves from dreamy Pisces into the active sign of Aries on the 3rd of April it makes a sextile aspect with Pluto in Capricorn on the 2nd. Pluto, as the ruler of the underworlds and bringer of transformation, helps us to collectively see those things that are needing to be transformed within our global society; it reveals those parts of the traditional that we need to shift and with that Pisces-Mercury energy at play, we are able to initiate conversations that accelerate those transformations, so long as we are remaining grounded and not slipping into wishful thinking. Mercury’s shift into Aries will cause us to become more assertive and active in how we communicate and take action which can help us to get things done in an effective manner - just beware of becoming aggressive because that can prevent smooth sailing.
On the 6th, Venus in Aries makes a sextile aspect to Mars in Gemini. While Venus is not particularly comfortable in the sign of Aries, this favorable aspect provides a playful and spontaneous energy within the field of love and romance. This is a great day for planning a date and bringing some excitement back into the bedroom. Whether you are in a relationship or not make some time for the people you love on this day by planning an adventure or at least being open to some spontaneity.
The 9th holds a square between Mars in Gemini and Pisces in Neptune. Watch out for a rude awakening to the reality of achieving your dreams; on this day they may feel far out of reach but don't just give up because of one hiccup. Reassess the steps that you have set out for yourself and see if you can find a better route, because the favorable sextile the next day between Mars in Gemini and Saturn in Aquarius will make it a great day for renegotiating and setting boundaries, helping you to get back on track.
On the 11th we have a new moon in Aries and Venus in Aries will square Pluto in Capricorn. Underlying issues within the relationship sphere may arise to the surface and cause some friction. It is advisable to see this as a useful moment for consciously healing the old hurts and bringing in forgiveness opposed to embodying the victim narrative.
On the 13th the Sun in Aries is sextile to Mars in Gemini; we are likely to feel a surge of energy and enthusiasm for our ongoing projects. Use this day to bring focus to your goals and to taking steps towards achieving them.
Goodluck reigns in the middle of the month. On the 14th Venus enters its home sign of Taurus. Any issues in relationships are likely to be resolved around this time as a gentleness re-enters our romantic lives. Our innate love for the beauty of life is re-energized and we find joy in the smallest of pleasures. On the 15th the Sun in Aries is sextile to the fortunate planet, Jupiter in Aquarius, making evident some fortunate wins in our movements towards a brighter collective future, which of course also affects our personal lives.
The 16th may feel like a hurdle to the lucky energy of the previous days with a square happening between the sun in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn, but this energy just reveals the residue of old paradigms that still need addressing. Our luck returns the next day (17th) with a beautiful trine aspect between Mars in Gemini and Jupiter in Aquarius and a sextile between Mars in Gemini and Mercury in Aries. On this day productivity is easy; it just flows and pays off instantly. Make use of this good luck by bringing focus to those things that are most important to you.
On the 18th the Sun is conjunct Mercury in Aries. The time for overthinking is over and it's a moment of matching your actions to your words. We must consciously dissolve any form of procrastination if we are to utilise this aspect to its full benefit before both the Sun and Mercury enter Taurus the next day. Committed and practical Taurus energy will help us to remain obligated to finishing what we started in Aries season. On the 22nd Venus in Taurus makes a conjunction with Uranus in Taurus which could usher in all kinds of life altering revelations to do with love and finances.
On the 23rd energetic Mars enters sensitive Cancer where it is in its fall - meaning that our actions may be more dictated by our unpredictable moods that swing from good to bad. Our words become less direct and logical as we move towards a tendency to be more self-centered and isolated. Those with strong Cancer placements will be most strongly affected here. We should expect to have more emotional pulls over the next 6 weeks.
The 24th presents us with a conjunction between Mercury and Uranus in Taurus. Transformations within our global economic systems as well as revolutions within our own finances may activate here. Communications within the business sector and in our personal relationships may reach towards new liberations. Whatever the outcomes, overhauls are to be expected.
On the 25th Mercury in Taurus is square to Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius, and is conjunct to Venus in Taurus. This combination of aspects may create a feeling of undoing in terms of the revelations of the previous day. Sometimes we have to learn the same lessons a few times before it is fully integrated and this too is a part of the growing process. Be conscious about how you communicate upon this day, rather bring focus to speaking with love instead of pointing out all of the problems.
The 26th holds the promise of rebirth and cleansing with a full moon in Scorpio. Use this energy to let go of that which is no longer serving you, particularly the beliefs that you have around yourself. To embed this work further, on 27th we have Pluto stationing retrograde in Capricorn, which will help us to go deep within ourselves, taking along with us a duster to clear all of our internal cobwebs that threaten to prevent our spiritual growth. Set your intentions for this powerful work.
On the 27th Mercury in Taurus is sextile to Neptune in Pisces. Today the silver linings of our lives become apparent; we can so easily see the necessity of the pathways we have walked and can bring beauty back into our viewpoints, our actions and the poetry we speak into the world.
