April 11 – 26
“When you mess with the Bull, you get the Horns”
This Aries New Moon on Apr 11 is setting the tone for the next few months, and much will have to do with our relationship to Mother Earth, The Collective and our Bodies. The Sun & New Moon are both in the sign of Aries and are conjunct Eris- The Goddess of Chaos, Discord, and War. Eris is her name in the Greek tradition, but she is also Kali, Sekhmet, and the Fierce Feminine. Her karmic mission is to root out all that is misaligned with Life, Higher Consciousness, and The Balance of the Universe. She is Mother Earth when our imbalances of ego have gone too far into greed, fear, control and destruction. This Fierce Feminine is rising and she is the corrective force of evolution. The most harmonious way to embrace this energy is to heal with Mother Earth with respect for all Life.
On Apr 14, Venus will enter her home sign of Taurus. Both Venus and Taurus represent Earth, Love, Values, Food, Our Bodies, The Environment, Health & Survival, and Resources. Venus is coming home to check-in on the status of her domaine. When we are out of balance with these energies, then the Earth & Environment are sick, our bodies are sick, there is an imbalance of wealth and resources, and a fundamental lack of Love and Respect in all things. Some call this the Patriarchy- a complete attempt to suppress and control the feminine: health, wholeness, intuition, sensing & feeling, sexuality, sovereignty, fertility, life affirming energies, connection and community.
This is even more potent as the planet Uranus is also in Taurus, and will be for 7 years. Uranus is the force of evolution, revelation, and awakening. Uranus is also called the Great Liberator and the Agent of Change. As an archetype in nature, it is Lightning. Uranus’ job is to awaken the Soul to the Ego. This can be done gently if we are attuned to our intuition and using our Free Will in alignment with Life Affirming Principles. This type of awakening will look like an epiphany, revelation, or realization. When we suppress or deny our intuition and use our Free Will in disharmony- it looks like trauma and chaos, or the Goddess Eris. Either way, the awakening will be delivered. So Venus- who is Mother Earth embodied- is being supported by the awakening force of evolution in her home sign of Taurus the Bull. Thus our mantra, “When you mess with the Bull, you get the Horns.”
This past year has been a challenging time and karmic mirror for the individual and the collective. On Apr 16, the Sun will square Pluto- the individual vs shadow. This can illuminate were the dying forces of the Patriarchy continue to seek control, suppress, and manipulation both in the individual and the collective. However, Mars will also create a supportive trine with Jupiter. Mars is your free will and Jupiter is Truth, Faith, and a Journey to the Soul. Use your power of choice to focus on your inner journey to awaken the Soul. Get in touch with your intuition and seek connection to your feminine energy through nature. Avoid aggression and conflict.
Mercury squares Pluto on Apr 17 and then conjoins the Sun on Apr 18. Mercury is the Mind, The Message and Communication. As a plane, it is always close to Sun. As an archetype, The Mind is always close to your Persona. Learn to harmonize the mind with the Soul, not the reverse. That is what has allowed us to get so far away from Truth, The Laws of Nature, and Wholeness of Self. Harness the mind to align with the Soul. Listen to your intuitive heart.
On Apr 19, Mercury and The Sun both enter the sign of Taurus, joining Venus and Uranus. This is a powerful stellum in the earthy sign of the Bull, meaning a lot of energy is being focused here. A big question: Are your Words, Actions and Thoughts aligned with the Earth? This is also the half moon in Leo. A sign of personal expression, creativity, love, and leadership. Use your gifts and passion to cultivate healing and connection with the earth.
Apr 22 is Earth Day, and it is Venus conjunct Uranus in Taurus. Mother Earth and the Great Awakener are empowered, and will demand our attention. This can be harmonious if we realize our gifts as stewards of life on this planet, or it can be harshly corrective to shake us out of our abuses of the earth and each other. Love on the Ma today, and Love on each other. Love is the answer.
Mars goes into Cancer on Apr 23 and Mercury also conjoins Uranus. The Masculine is brought to the nurturing feminine and mind is brought to the higher self.
Finally, Venus and Mercury will both square Saturn on Apr 24 & 25 respectively. Saturn is Justice, Karma, and The Laws and Rules of Society. Are the structures of our society in alignment with Nature and Love? Are our minds in alignment with the Universal Laws? This will bring us to the Scorpio Full Moon on Apr 26 and the start of retrograde season. Remember, “When you mess with the Bull, you get the Horns.”
