Welcome to the peak season of Aries, where these first few days exude an upbeat perkiness not seen for some time. Then mid month’s Aries new moon carries its own story to be unspooled down below. We also have welcome and unwelcome transformative Pluto standing dead still, before going retro which and with this crawling motion just intensifies what he brings and takes from the table. The future script on April 2021 should describe some very significant events, discoveries, resolutions. The icing on the cake might pertain to secrets spilled, truths revealed, and its duplicitous players exposed. Almost like Watergate, but not.
Finally we’ll examine the triple charts of our own USA, President Biden and Kamala Harris. Sudden shifts of unusual circumstances and events have caught my attention. A more detailed analysis to follow. Then just to remind everyone, that the oft mentioned “Black Swan” aspect is still lurking overhead. It’s that Saturn Uranus standoff thing, meaning that what you think is all set, won’t be, so it’s a good idea not to take anything for granted right now. Hopefully they will skip past your chart. Later April’s full moon will probably have of this all on display in vivid primary colors for us on planet earth to see even without a telescope.\
THOUGHTS ON THIS CYCLE:
Early month, Thursday, Friday onto early Saturday the 3d, that moon in cheerful Sagittarius so nicely aligned with Venus and Chiron and the Aries Sun, might land more than one Easter lily on your, doorstep. After the egg hunt, chocolate eggs and ham are best served after 2 pm on Sunday.
April 5th – 6th Monday’s Aquarian hippie moon coalescing identically with Jupiter should bring some highly charged but positive adventures, with Mars, or just well timed conversations? Wednesday ‘s void moon means it’s best not to plan anything of importance until early Thursday.
Just a side note, when planning meetings and trips, I avoid anything serious on void moon times. Travel on a void moon? Since I use astrology like WAZE on my phone, why would I want to risk losing my luggage?
April 9-10th Now we’ve entered what I think of as “a moment.” Why is that? Because a Pisces moon with Neptune together squared off against Mars in his recent and more changeable hangout, Gemini Mrigashira, can bring some brief disruption and confusion . Here’s where I’m going to suggest caution in your endeavors. Pay close attention to the markets? Meetings? Contract signing?
Moving along, maybe the most significant point of this month, would be the powerful dynamic between Sun Mars and Jupiter joining up to create a powerful 3 week period where one can realize your self worth, because now’s the time to come out of the shadows and take back your power! Any planets in air and fire signs will benefit greatly from this one. Of course we’re talking about a global aspect as well, and while I’m hoping it benefits you, we’ll be waiting to see just where and on whom it lands.
April 11-12th Although April new moons have traditionally been celebrated
as the actual beginning of springtime, I’m not waxing effusively here about the ancient and current rituals to the new moon, 11th April, 7:35 pm PDT. This particular lunar event marks a beginning all right but even with several planets embedded in the charming and fortunate part of Aries, known as Rohini, they are still combative with old Pluto. I’ll save the flowers and candles for a more poetic time while keeping in mind the uplifting pairing of Mars and Jupiter still in air!
April 16-17th Now here we come into a highly charged electric sort of weekend!
The wildness only calms down later day around 8:45 pm pdt. You may feel like you’re at a road show but yet in the zoo at the same time. I would totally understand. Spring break may just break records. Common sense are you listening?
April 19-21st Now in this moment, mid month to third week of April, with Jupiter activating our country’s humanitarian Aquarius moon to its exact degree, could I dare to hope that just maybe, there would be some helpful decisions made regarding the thousands of children sequestered in convention centers and other holding stations on the southern border? Our natal moon is beautifully set up so I’m hopeful that some good may come of this.
Then, as if I were inspecting the chart of a person, our USA chart shows US to be in a time of karmic payback. It’s a make or break kind of aspect. More worrisome might well be the terrible increase in domestic violence as these past few weeks have already shown. Atlanta, Boulder, Orange, now the capitol police being attacked! Then possibly even more, what will it be? Secrets coming out, unflattering tales being told? None of this would surprise me, in fact I’m rather expecting this to be the case. All cards are on the table now.
Meanwhile I had to check on our President, Joe Biden’s chart, because many months back I noticed something a little disturbing for him that would occur around this time period. It’s an unsettling aspect mirrored as well in his wife, Jill’s, chart. Would it be a health matter or a political fist fight? I don’t think it’s about Major, the German Shepherd, biting a security guard or even leaving a brownie on the carpet. No this matter looks rather serious, and when I move over to see Kamala Harris’ and oh, there it is, that Black Swan slapping both of them. The late month’s full moon emphasizes the whole dilemma. It appears to me that Kamala is dealing with something rather intense and even life changing.
Her rather extraordinary chart is configured with planets in exact 60 degree formations around the whole circle, very rare, with some harder aspects of course. What I’ve learned after 40 years of astro gazing is that a birth chart with some hard aspects can and will serve to motivate a person to overcome certain life difficulties thereby resulting in a more satisfactory and rewarding life path.
Now comes this bell ringer of a super Pink moon, April 26th( 5:30 pm pdt. Landing as it does in an early Scorpio placement known as Swati, whose symbol being a sword, might help explain the nature of this moon. Its arrangement is overseen by a rather self advancing, materialistic and unspiritual sort of temperament. Added to this description, and ranking high on the chart, are relationship matters. Therefore this moon, is also cautioning us to use our words carefully, kindly, not as swords. On into very early May the pieces of this puzzle will not have been put back in correct order just yet, although by the new moon of May 10, 11th some justice will be served! Joe’s chart will find better days especially around the May 26th lunar eclipse. I’m banking on this last one. Wishing all of you star gazers a safe and happy April. Armagedda will sign off now which just might be a relief. Good night.
DAYS TO USE : 2, 6, 8, 10,11, 16, 23!,
BIRTHDAYS OF NOTE:
The following birthdays are based on the very close degrees of the Sun, not on a large swath of dates for which I could never be specific. Normally a true birth time will provide an accurate rising sign and degree of the moon and then we can begin to talk true astrology. The Sun is still very significant for it represents the soul’s manifestation in the outer world, health issues, and the house position gets even more specific. If you need to see your chart for these details just follow the links to one or both of the choices provided. or .
