Astrological Trends for April 2013 - "This Joint is Jumping"
Spring is in the air and so is love. Venus remains in Aires until April 15th (Naturally. Nothing kills romance like taxes.). The planet of love provides lots of sparks the first two weeks of this month. Astro experts say you can expect some delightful new romantic opportunities as well as a fresh perspective on existing relationships.
Our new moon on April 10th is in 20 degrees of Aries. New moon’s are about new cycles and don’t be surprised if you receive an across the board power boost during this one. Do you remember the power surge we got during The Full Worm Moon a couple of weeks ago? We had Mars, Venus, the Sun and Uranus in Aries. The power grid is still open for business. Mars, Aries ruling planet, stays in house until April 20th. Take advantage of this energy configuration to hone a competitive edge on the job. Yes, there will be fresh challenges (this month is all about fresh) but you have a greater ability to focus until the 20th and that increases your confidence quotient. Watch for conflicts and anger issues as Uranus (Sudden change and revolution) flexes its muscles this month. To put it bluntly, keep your head in the game and out of Uranus.
Mercury parts company with Pisces on the 13th, but until then expect to have some peak moments of insight and intuition. There will be a strong emotional subtext due to the energy of watery Pisces, however, this also adds lots of colorful imagery to your imagination. Let it flow, but keep a handle on your emotions.
There a lot more to say about April. We have the Lyrid Meteor shower on April 21st, a full moon with a partial eclipse on April 25th and Saturn at opposition on April 28th. I’ll be talking about these events a little later in the month. Take your cues from the planets this month. Keep it fresh and stay proactive.
