April 2015 Astrological Highlights
April 2015 Astrological Highlights by Varij
The highlight of the month is the Full Moon Libra Total Lunar Eclipse exact at 10:53 pm on Saturday night, April 4, 2015.
This lunation is especially powerful as it once again activates the ongoing Uranus Pluto square alignment. Uranus, planet of freedom and awakening, is conjunct the Sun in Aries, which in turn is conjunct the karmic past life influenced South Node, all of which oppose the Moon and the dharmic evolutionary soul purpose North Node in Libra, with transformational Pluto, the planet of transmuting old forms into new at the central focal point of the whole pattern.
The opportunity presented is for liberation from less evolved Aries style egoic patterns of relating, such as ‘it’s my way or the highway’ and the associated runner pattern of ‘I’m out of here,’ and also the necessity of letting go of attitudes and people that no longer support our evolution into the awakening beings we were born to be.
The Moon is the symbol for emotions and feelings and when the Moon is eclipsed, hidden shadow feelings can come to the surface to be illuminated by the solar light of consciousness. Intense emotional reactions may occur that seemingly come out of nowhere but which are in fact related to unresolved psychological patterns based on past hurts and wounds. ‘Love brings up anything unlike itself for the purpose of healing’ is a maxim to keep in mind for the entire Easter period.
Grand Fire Trine
One of the April 2015 Astrological Highlights is the first week of April also features a lucky planetary alignment linking the three fire signs Aries, Leo and Sagittarius and the planets Sun, Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn. Carpe diem, seize the moment, applies, as this fortunate pattern will fade in effect after the first week. The alignment links the optimism and enthusiasm of Jupiter, the diligence and discipline of Saturn, the quick thinking of Mercury, and the entrepreneurial flare of the Sun in Aries to make it an ideal time for envisioning, planning, and actioning the achievement of personal goals.
Mercury and Venus Change Signs
Mercury, the planet of mind and communication changes sign from Aries to Taurus on April 15. When in Aries, communication is favoured that is direct and straight to the point, though watch out for impatience, jumping to conclusions, and not truly listening. Remember ‘communication is the response you get.’
When Mercury moves into Taurus on the 15th it’s time to slow down, and thoroughly think things through before opening your mouth. Communication that is clear, attentive and solidly grounded in the here and now will produce the best results.
Venus, the planet of love and beauty moves into Gemini from Taurus on April 12.
When Venus is in Taurus, her home sign, the accent is on sensuality, on what you can see, hear, taste, touch, and smell. This is an excellent time for the enjoyment of arts and crafts, nature and the expression of physical affection.
“If music be the food of love, play on, give me excess of it.” [Shakespeare]
When Venus moves into Gemini on the 12th, the need to get out and about and to be sociable becomes stronger. Brush up on your flirting skills and allow yourself some playful banter and witty repartee. Overall, this is an excellent period for networking and marketing.
Mars in Taurus
Mars went into Taurus [from Aries] on the 1st of April and will remain there until mid-May. Mars is the god of war and passion, drive and achievement. Its sign placement reveals how we go about getting what we want. The Taurean style is slow and steady. Reliability, perseverance and determination will be rewarded – eventually. Keep at it. When you are on a good thing, stick to it.
WISHING YOU A HAPPY,
HEALTHY & SUCCESSFUL APRIL 2015!
