This Week Brings Fresh Starts & Sensual Experience

Published on March 31, 2019

Your Weekly Astrology Forecast for April 1–7, 2019

The Sun now shines in Aries, where it is exalted, or highest functioning. The Aries zodiacal month encourages new beginnings. It’s the season for spring cleaning and fresh starts.

Solar Aries symbolizes passion, warmth, excitement and zest for adventure. Mercury turned direct on Thursday, March 28, although it remains in its shadow until April 16. This means that although Mercury is now direct, it still carries some of the effects of Mercury retrograde until April 16. We can still expect to experience some communication and mechanical breakdowns through April 16th. So be patient with mix-ups, which may be opportunities to revise, review or re-configure. The South Node conjuncts Pluto, a major aspect symbolizing completions, transformations, endings and new beginnings.

Start Your Week with the Poetic and Magical

Expect to encounter illusion, mystery and surprise on Monday and Tuesday. The Moon is in Pisces, expanding our imagination and vision and lifting us out of practical reality into ideal worlds.

Look for the poetic and the magical in Monday’s and Tuesday’s offerings.

The cosmic alignment Uranus-sextile-Moon is perfect for Monday, April Fool’s Day, as it may bring a few practical jokes and surprises. Mercury is nearly conjunct Neptune, exact Monday.

On Tuesday, dreams states are enhanced in both our sleeping and waking consciousness. On Tuesday, a benefic Moon-Saturn sextile helps us ground our imaginative ideas into practical reality.

Mid-Week Asks for Patience and Focusing Inward

The Moon is void of course (VoC) all day on Wednesday from 8:36 a.m. through 7:56 p.m. PDT. Lower your expectations for things to get done and don’t expect a lot to happen today. You may feel pulled in many directions and overextended. Stick to insignificant tasks. Allow yourself to dream, work in your garden or just pull back from the demanding world and read a book.

The South Node conjuncts Pluto, the planet symbolizing transformation, on Thursday. This South Node/Pluto alignment could signal endings and transformations. Keep your heart open and surrender to change.

The Moon is in bold, courageous Aries on Thursday and Friday, but it is dark on Thursday and Friday before coming into an exact conjunction with the Sun, signaling a New Moon at 15 Aries. Draw inward, as the lunar cycle comes to a close. This New Moon is potent—and serious. Saturn, the South Node, and Pluto square this New Moon.

Although Aries, sign of the Sun and Moon, is about quick, fiery and courageous action, the square from Saturn, the South Node, and Pluto is a force to reckon with, and may result in delays and challenges to forward, and possibly impatient movement. Things may not happen at the pace we anticipate, and we may have to deal first with some challenges that delay. Friday’s New Moon is the first New Moon of the annual zodiacal cycle. It is ripe with potential for fiery, excited, initiating motion, yet it is in check by Saturn and Pluto. Forward motion now requires thoughtful intention and attention and meeting the challenges that occur. A blessed Moon-Jupiter trine, though, showers a spirit of optimism and a sense that all is well.

This Weekend is Made for Surprise and Sensual Grounding

Saturday through Monday afternoon, the Moon is in sensual Taurus. On Saturday, the Moon conjuncts Uranus, meaning just about anything surprising could happen. Expect a good surprise!

Taurus symbolizes all things sensual, plants and gardening. One way you could activate this energy would be to revision your garden  and shop at a nursery for unusual plants or garden objects.

Sunday’s major aspect, Mercury sextile Saturn,  syncs our thoughts with reality, and we can write and communicate responsibly and with attention to what needs to be said. The Taurus Moon makes at least four other benefic aspects with planets, making this a day for fortuitous realizations. Taurus is an earth sign, and actions will be sensual and grounded, and due to the positive aspects, they will be good. Sunday is a splendid day for manifestation.
