Week of April 10, 2017

After the intensity of last week, we are given some breathing space this week to regroup once we make it past the Full Moon in Libra on Monday. The biggest jolt occurs on Thursday when the Sun conjoins Uranus at 24° Aries, a live wire of an aspect. In my opinion, the best thing happening this week is Venus FINALLY stationing direct on Saturday at 26° 55′ Pisces. Yay!

There is no getting around the fact the Libra Full Moon is going to be a pot stirrer. Rebelliousness that has been simmering beneath the surface may bubble over. The Moon-Jupiter conjunction in Libra is all about standing up for what’s fair and equitable. The Sun-Uranus conjunction in Aries is busy agitating extreme measures in the pursuit of freedom, and Pluto in Capricorn squares the luminaries fighting to maintain control of the situation. Interesting times.

A few days later the Sun conjoins Uranus exactly at 24° Aries, either Thursday or Friday depending on your time zone. We may finally have to choose whether or not breaking free of an old situation is in our best interests. Of course, some folks may not have a choice because it will be made for them. How intensely this aspect affects you depends on whether you have personal planets and/or Ascendant from 23° to 25° in the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn). This is a good time to be careful what you wish for.

Venus finally stations direct on Saturday at 26° Pisces, happily sextile to Mars in Taurus. Yes, Venus still has one more exact square to Saturn in Sagittarius happening on April 21 and she will be well within orb of that square when she stations direct. However the sextile to Mars will ease tensions in part because she will feel loved and appreciated. Look for constructive solutions to relationship issues based on kindness and compassion.

We start the week with a congenial Libra Moon, and for most of the day she will be her usual pleasant self. By late afternoon/early evening this will change when she conjoins Jupiter and squares Pluto in Capricorn shortly before the Full Moon in Libra. Relationships already under stress will feel this one and it could make or break those. The morning is better for working with others or handling negotiations.

Very early Tuesday morning the Libra Moon opposes Uranus in Aries and the less said the better. The atmosphere improves later in the morning when the Moon is sextile calm Saturn in Sagittarius after which she goes void-of-course until late afternoon. On the whole this is a good day to mend some fences and handle old business. Once the Moon enters Scorpio we may find ourselves needing more time alone.

Wednesday is one of the calmest days this week. The Scorpio Moon makes no aspects after she opposes Mercury in Taurus around midnight until she is blissfully trine Neptune in Pisces during the evening. A pragmatic approach to problem solving today will produce the best results. Working quietly doing research is favored.

There is a similar situation with the Scorpio Moon on Thursday. She is sextile Pluto in Capricorn at the beginning of the work day and won’t make another major aspect until she opposes Mars in Taurus early evening. Do be careful about interrupting people unnecessarily because they may get testy about it.

After the Moon dashes into adventurous Sagittarius at dawn on Friday, she won’t be constrained by major aspects for about twenty four hours. There will be a lively, fiery feel to the day in part because the Aries Sun conjoined Uranus during the night. Plan on work independently if at all possible or, better yet, take the day off to run about town or out into the country. This is a good evening for hanging out with friends or taking your sweetheart out to play.

The convivial atmosphere continues Saturday though the Sagittarius Moon squaring Neptune in Pisces first thing in the morning may make waking up a challenge. Later in the afternoon a Moon-Jupiter sextile revives the party mood and many will head out for another night on the town.

Sunday morning finds the Sagittarius Moon trine Uranus and the Sun in Aries. This also happens to be Easter Sunday and the warm, buoyant fiery energy will give a nice lift to Easter celebrations. A midday conjunction with Saturn brings the Sagittarius Moon back to earth and marks the beginning of a void-of-course that will last until late afternoon/early evening. A quiet evening at home might sound good with the Capricorn Moon trine Mercury in Taurus.

The intensity gradually eases after the Full Moon in Libra and we can begin to assimilate what it revealed over the course of this week. Remember Venus is slowing to station direct on Saturday and even after she turns the corner it will take her awhile to get back up to speed. Life will continue to move at a slower pace than some would like but that’s OK. Mercury Rx in Taurus is in no hurry either. Relax and breathe for now.
