April started off with a new moon in Aries happening March 30.The theme starting off the month was beginning something new and with all of the alignments and major configurations it was no mistake. The new moon signifies beginning new projects but to have it in Aries the sign of pushing you forward and providing you with the energy needed to do so is significant.
This month is eclipse season. Eclipses are all about karma and fate. This lunar eclipse on April 15 was in the sign of Libra. You could also find Mars retrograde in the sign Libra and was also joined by the North node.
This shows that this month is based on some deep karma in regards to relationships. There is the cleansing and uprooting of fears and blockages in order to make room for the new. Any relationships started at this time you will find have spiritual roots.
Pluto moved retrograde April 14 … when Pluto changes it direction we can expect to feel a shift or change within our own lives. To add to it Pluto squares Uranus exactly on April 21, this signifies evolutionary change. Uranus represents higher awareness, revolution, invention and change. Uranus is a planet that can be shocking and unpredictable.
Pluto represents change, destruction of old, transformation and renewal.
Neither Uranus nor Pluto are emotionally based planets. However, their impact will be felt deeply. You may notice something deep stirring within, restlessness, stress and or frustration. The answer to this square is to embrace the changes that are occurring and take the steps toward initiating change in your life.
It is also extra intense because it is right in the middle of a Grand Cardinal Cross. Cardinal signs are about moving forward, the energy it takes to change the seasons and therefore this cross holds a lot of power as it involves all of the big planets; Mars, Pluto, Uranus and Jupiter. This may be uncomfortable but it is something that we are all moving through. The story may be different for each individual but the intensity of it is the same. The best way to get through is to embrace it all because the changes are happening either way so you might as well embrace it and make the best of it.
The Sun moves into Taurus right in the middle of this Cardinal Cross. Some of the questions you should be asking yourself are what are you going to manifest within all this extreme energy and change? What do you value in life?
Underneath all of this we have a Trine in water which is signalling that all of this has its roots in changing you on a spiritual level and that listening to your intuition through it all is very important.
Next up we have the solar eclipse in Taurus on April 29. This month is definitely big … what will you do with it all? This month is kind of like the catalyst launching you into a new direction and it is just the beginning and an intense beginning it is … you will be feeling all of this energy for a while. So work with it and make it all worthwhile.
