Last month, the Sun was in Pisces with Mercury and Neptune. Pisces is, unquestionably the most sensitive of all the astrological water signs. Pisces are like “sponges” that seem to pick up what is going on around them, both visible and invisible. As a result, a suffering came into play and many people with planets configured in this sign were capable of losing their way and falling into escapism through drugs, alcohol, gambling, and eventually, depression, due to the depression, isolation and pandemic. Pisces rules our Nature, also our immune system; we all suffer as the growth of global economy influence the nature and our life, we go through difficult time because the population is so large that we are polluting the air, the water and the whole world. As the symbol of the Pisces, two fish looking in two different direction, our life was pointing in that directions, as well, between the Heaven and Hell. A long time ago, Pisces were associated with Christianity. Now, with the greediness of the of the richest people in the world, the earth is in potentially catastrophic climate changes and chemicals poison our air and water. The climate change is noticeable and disastrous for the life on our planet. Neptune along with other planets in Pisces initiated fearful terrifying storms and tsunamis, but also can bring about a penetrating stillness with an environment containing a flow of knowledge within a transcendent peace. Pisces is the 12th sign of the zodiac. It is home where we need to stay still, isolated, healing our wounds and preparing for the new coming. People with low immune systems were victims, others have fears or depression. The global pandemic made us aware that much of our medicine is manufactured in China. While they are shut down, some of these medicines may be difficult to buy in the US.
In March, we have two elements of signs in the sky: Water (Pisces-Sun, Mercury, Neptune) and Earth (Capricorn- Mars, Saturn and Pluto). There were no Air and no Fire elements. Fire signs energize, excite, and inspire people to work toward goals and the Air signs lend to enthusiasm for intelligent ideas and effective modes of communication. These two were missing in March.
This month the Sun is in Aries. Mercury is still in Pisces until April 11. Then, Mercury moves to Aries too. On April 4th, Venus moves to Gemini. Mars moves to airy Aquarius on March 31st to stay here for the next 45 days. Jupiter and Pluto are still in Capricorn, but now, they will interact with Fire and Air elements of Aries, Gemini and Aquarius. Now, in April, we can see a completely different picture. The depression we had in March will be lifted up and we are going to cheer up and fight for freedom, we want to change the world and make it better. We want to help each other and to combine our collective efforts (Mars In Aquarius) to discover new technology or medication and to heal the world, to help the earth to breath better. We are in the process of changing our lives on the earth.
Aries is the first Sign of the Zodiac. It’s the Ram which symbolizes Aries, and that’s both good and bad news. Impulsive Arians (and there are more than a few) might be tempted to force their ideas down someone else’s throat. If things get done for the greater good, that might even be acceptable. Along with those qualities comes the Arian’s sheer force of being which can accomplish a great deal. Much of this drive to the finish line has to do with the Cardinal Quality assigned to Arians. Cardinal Signs love to get things going, and Arians embody this better than the rest.
Arians are ruled by the Planet Mars. Taking a peek at Roman mythology, we find that Mars was the God of War. Our man Mars was unafraid to do battle, and much the same can be said for Arians. These folks are bold, aggressive and courageous. They can summon up the inner strength required to take on most anyone, and they’ll probably win. Arians do not lack energy or vitality, (so we) and they can stay in the game longer than most anyone else. Arian competitive natures ensure that they will play the game with zeal and vigor. At times, their approach may be seen as arrogant and domineering, but it takes a lot of focus to be a leader.
The Element associated with Aries is Fire. Think action, enthusiasm and a burning desire to play the game. Aries love battle, so they won’t sit on the sidelines for long, if at all. They’ll jump into the fray full force and will contribute much in the process. Making things happen is what it’s all about to these folks. Aries are also unafraid of stepping onto new terrain. The challenge inherent in taking on the unknown is heaven on Earth for Rams. Sure, they may appear arrogant when they take on the world, but they’ll be quick to tell you it’s the only way to go. While a common Aries refrain might well be ‘me first,’ there’s no point in arguing with them since, in their minds, they are first. Is this uncontrolled ego? Maybe, but that might be what it takes to blaze a new trail. Oh, and on the subject of arguing, it’s the Ram who will have the last word, so save your breath.
This month, Aries going to gives us clarity and vision to see the bigger picture. The sun is semi-square the moon in Aquarius asking us to control our emotions and figure out a way to channel them into some sort of service. Serving something greater than our ego. Love and freedom will be revealed by uniting parts of I that oppose teamwork and maturity.
With the Sun now in Aries, we are motivated by the desire to conquer. This marks the beginning of the astrological New Year. The fiery Aries energy now promotes all impulses for growth with a spirit of optimism. We are more impulsive and have the urge to initiate. Aries is a sign that bounces back quickly–there is little shame with Aries who possess abundant creative energy and enthusiasm for life. Very brave, positive and competitive. Obstacles are overcome by sheer physical courage. The Sun will be in Aries until April 20, then the Sun will enter the earth sign of Taurus.
The Fire energy of Aries helps us to move ahead in straight lines. This can be a great advantage in many areas of life, but particularly with a situation that has previously felt stuck or too complex. It may be the case that we are motivated to take up fresh activity in an area that has been inactive or lacking in solutions. The progressive, sparkly energy of Aries brings hope for potentials to do something totally NEW. Aries is somewhat rebellious, and although this is very much tempered by earth elements (Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn), there is still the ability to act in ways that are brave and different. Capricorn is an earth sign associated with frameworks, facing and overcoming limitations, ambition to climb society’s “ladder to success”, and, often, ruthless realism in confronting the blockades created by established institutions. Aries is the warrior that have no fear, the one that is ready to go against this established structure and Saturn’s rules. Combination of the earth and fire signs is very hot, fiery, I can say some dangerous. It is not going to be easy, as Saturn has structure and rules and stubborn Aries is fearless and action oriented and Aries will not afraid to brake the rules.
Mars entered Aquarius on March 31. 2020
Ariies are ruled by the planet Mars who moved to original, collective, groups and friends, freedom and discovery revolutionary sign of Aquarius. Mars in Aquarius suggests that we must assert in an original, dynamic, intelligent, unorthodox, well-organized and inspired manner. Freedom of thought and action is of supreme importance. Aquarius is a stubborn, freedom loving sign, we will be challenged, perhaps even a bit crazy. From international perspective and world political affairs, Mars in Aquarius is not in a good position, as it signifies war by air.
We have to remember that Aquarius is “crazy”, eccentric sign and in combination of Mars (ruled by fire Aries), we may see many violence or struggle among the crowds.
Much of our energy will be channeled into social action, in particular, humanitarian projects in any worthwhile field of venture, even taking on the traditional establishment to achieve our group or social goal. We will also be granted with some energy to fuel advances and progressions for the world at large. This is very timely, with all damage from the Corona virus, we will need a lot of energy to pull through. Saving the world by discovering a new medicine or vaccines will be first priority to scientists.
Saturn in Aquarius – March 21 until July 02.2020
With Saturn, now moved to Aquarius on March 21, Saturn is getting a little bit far from Pluto. (Pluto 24 degrees of Capricorn, Saturn of 1 degree in Aquarius- 6 degrees apart). It can be little better than the time of conjunction with Pluto, when the outbreak of the corona virus was announced in the world. Saturn, now in Aquarius can be a good deal. It signifies a major shift in collective energies.
Aquarius rules groups, society and the collective in general as well as justice, equality and humanitarian assistance. With Saturn in this position we will need to completely turn over our current dynamics to support each other in times of crisis. This will depend a lot on our governments and the major powers in the world supporting those in need at the expense of profit, greediness and selfishness. We hope to be able to maintain our normal life.
These will be trying times for sure, in the airy climate of Aquarius as Saturn turns its slow and steady gaze outward, reordering structures and boundaries in order to make connections, distribute information, and develop innovations.
Some of the ways that Saturn in Aquarius may manifest can be problematic. Changes or restrictions with social media and technology, an increase in airborne diseases, a crackdown on rebellious behavior, limited freedom, progressive inventions becoming more mainstream, breaking the rules becoming the new norm, and alternative practices becoming more conventional.
April 4. 2020, Jupiter conjunction with Pluto in the sign of Capricorn, it can bring some much-needed expansion and blessings to the cosmic scene. Some astrologer may scare you that this conjunction can increase the spread of the virus, which I don’t believe, don’t tend to scare you. Jupiter /Pluto duo, for me, is always attempted to improve the things. Pluto rules eliminations and death and manipulations, but also, Pluto rules healing, transformation. This can involve using nontraditional methods to protect, to prevent, and Jupiter can spread the knowledge of it, both can be a partner to enrich our understanding how to prevent, or how to heal by using unconventional methods. It is funny, how come a virus that can be destroyed with soup and hot water, at the same time can kill so many people. There should be way we can do something to stop it. I have positive belief that now, we all have plenty of time to educate ourselves and become more fastidious about cleanliness and healthy eating. Jupiter spreads knowledge and widen our horizons, both they can be a great team to enhance our lives.
Venus in Gemini From April 4 until August 07.2020
In Gemini, we have a finger in every pie. Curiosity motivates us on romantic and social levels. “Variety is the spice of life” is the attitude now. We are sociable, communicative, and interested. Hmm…. Really? Well, we live in 21st century, the Aquarius age, technology is everywhere. We can be animated and fun but may also keep our distance on an emotional level. Gemini are air and a cooler sign. Relationships where talking, sharing ideas and learning new things are highly preferred and needed. Gemini loves to learn and spread the knowledge. Attractions now may begin with words, as we tend to bond more readily on a mental level with Venus in Gemini. The shadow side of Gemini is capriciousness or unpredictability in matters of love, be careful not to attract lovers that have tendency to desire more than one interest at a time.
Wow! Do you know that Venus will stay unusual long time here! It is rare! Venus spends time 25 days in each sign, now, Venus will be in Air sign of Gemini for more than 4 months. Venus may challenge us to stick with our commitments, on the other hand, we will have an easier time communicating with others. Venus rules love, money, finances, it is known to bring healing whatever Venus touches. We have hope Venus can play a part of cleaning the air from the virus that we have right now.
Full Moon in Libra April 7.2020
A Full Moon occurs when the Sun opposite Moon, it brings your home, family and intimate relationships into sharper focus for the following two weeks of this moon phase. Find some balance between home and work, your family and your obligations. Do not let these opposing forces bring stress or dis-balance.
The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts reach their peak at a full moon. We need to use our increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any relationship challenges. Subconscious awareness allows for an impartial and balanced look at our personal relationships. Put yourself in the partners or family member shoes and see clearly any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony. Work to solve them as you compromise and solve the peace and harmony, as Venus ( Libra ruler) requires.
As the moon make 150 degrees to Neptune, there may be some confusion, depression or misdiagnosis, over-sensitivity to medications, addiction, and poisoning. Stay way from alcohol or drugs, this can make the situation worse. To solve the problem, better have honest straightforward communication with these you have disagreement. Some people can be very sensitive or get emotional, other aggressive, protect yourself, as you stay away from these, or if you are emotional, try to express your emotions in a creative safe way. Remember, getting from emotional to intellectual level, brings the pressure down immediately. Or use Aries energy and desire for vigorous work – heavy lifting or running, instead of fighting. Think before you act!
Mercury enters the fire sign of Aries- April 11 to April 28
When Mercury is in Aries, we are less concerned with objective viewpoints and explanations, and more concerned with reaching a decision…quickly! Our thoughts and ideas are pioneering, and we tend to speak more spontaneously and directly with the planet of communication in bold and assertive Aries. We can be more quick-witted, observant, sharp, original, inventive and competitive have more original ideas and put them into practice. It is a good time for writing, speaking and debate as we can influence others and promote your own ideas. Be wary of being sarcastic, over-enthusiastic, excitable and given to exaggeration. Venus is in a close conjunction with Mercury at the moment so it will give more of empathetic and emotional flavor to our communicative style.
Sun enters Taurus April 19 until May 2020
In Taurus, the Sun is methodical, sensual, and receptive. The Sun in Taurus is most active when it is defending or opposing things! As the Sun moves through Taurus when plants take root, our determination and security needs are strong. Taurus is loyal to all that is familiar, and values longevity. The shadow side of Taurus is possessiveness and bullheadedness.
We may will feel more determined, practical, reliable and patient in general. This will help calm down the Aries impulsiveness that has been in circulating for the past month or so. You may have a stronger desire for material possessions is a dominant motivating factor in your life. Many people may start to grow their own vegetables and fruits, get out and work in yard, as Taurus is a earth sign that loves working in the garden, but also, he enjoys the fruits of his work. Taurus can be stubborn or overindulgent, and lazy at times. If you feel you are spending too much time watching TV, remember, it is a spring, it is time to get out and to move. No excessive eating or drinking, please, because overeating lower our energy level and strength, it even lowers our immune system. It is time for getting grounded with more greens, fruits, vegetables on the table!
New Moon in Taurus April 22
This Moon is a little crazy, as it occurs at 3.23 degrees of Taurus and conjunct Uranus, also there, at 6 degrees of Taurus, both squares Mars in freedom loving Aquarius; aggressive Aries, the Ram is in the stage, as well. Uranus may bring unexpected changes. This may have aggressive and impulsive influence, so it is important to be responsible, patient, cautious and sensible. The best way to avoid tragedy from the coronavirus is to protect ourselves and our loved ones and avoid taking risks.
The New moon in Taurus is in the sign of security, finances, money, what we touch and how we feel. By touching it. Taurus is ruled by Venus, the sign of love and money. We all need to feel secure and stable, but right now, as the spread of the virus lacked us home isolated from friends and groups, we may feel anxious and unloved. Think about what you have and what your blessings are. We live in the richest country in the world, there is no hunger, we can find support as we reach our family and friends.
Our safety depends on the need for security, which is not easy to satisfy during this testing time. We have to learn to accept the change as part of our life. We have to find our own self-respect in order to ensure that we do not falsely seek it in material things. When we accept yourself for who we are, it will be easier to find peace and tranquility in the outside world.
Mercury in Taurus April 28 until May 11.2020
When Mercury is in Taurus, our thinking is down to earth, solid, and grounded. We are more diligent and have more determination and endurance of mind. We communicate more deliberately under this influence, and our minds are oriented to the world of the five senses. We may feel more sociable, friendly, and affectionate, however, we may can be stubborn and irritable when others do not agree with your point of view. You will be inclined to use our mental qualities to secure practical, material or financial results.
It is not an easy-going month. We can have unexpected surprises; we can have to fight for our freedom. What is most important now, is to be calm, safe, united and protect ourselves and our family. The world health organizations and scientists work together ( Mars and Saturn both in Aquarius in collective effort for humanitarian cases) to bring good news, it can be new medicines to the world or new vaccine. Be patient, be responsible, be lovely, spread love and compassion, instead of fears and viruses. Keep good communication by using social media and help these in need.
Have an amazing month
