We start the month with Venus and Jupiter continuing to be Retrograde. As the month progresses we also encounter Mercury Rx, Saturn Rx and Pluto Rx!
I like to deal with Mercury Rx first as it seems to be the one that affects us the most. As you are probably aware, Mercury, rules all types of communication. When it’s in Retrograde motion it can indicate miss-communications in all areas of your life.
Mercury goes Retrograde on April 9th until May 3rd. It starts out in Taurus and on April 20th will move back into Aries! When Mercury is Rx in Taurus there is a tendency for us to be stubborn and to hold onto some outdated beliefs. When it moves back into Aries, we might discover that arguing comes easy, even with people we love.
As always, it’s important to cross the T’s and dot the I’s! It takes longer to handle communications that arise and there is more likely to be conflict and delay.
Mercury Rx in Taurus is a great time to look at your finances. Is it time to track every penny that comes in and goes out to get clear on where your money is going? During this Mercury Rx, you can also gain more clarity around your values. Do you know what your #1 value is? Once you have decided you can start living your life with that #1 value in mind.
Saturn, the planet of obstacles and challenges and karma, as well as where we need to get organized, will be heading into Retrograde motion from April 6th until August 21st. Saturn will stay in the sign of Sagittarius for that period.
Whatever areas of your life you have been working on prior to the Saturn Rx, will require you to look deeper when Saturn enters the Rx zone. For example, if you have been pondering whether you want to stay in your current relationship, over the next 4+ months you will be looking at your decision more closely. If you are married, you might talk with an attorney to find out the next course of action, if you do leave. Your partner and you may enter marriage counseling or spend a weekend at a marriage retreat.
If you are looking at your career, which Saturn rules, and have been contemplating making a change from employed to self-employed, you will have 4 months to gather all the information needed to create a successful business. You may also decide to stay with your currently job as the benefits outweigh the costs of making a change now. Take it slow and get the information you need to decide.
The good news with this Saturn Rx is that Saturn is in Sagittarius, which rules Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion. Any changes you do make will turn out to move you forward in a very positive manner. So, take that leap of faith and get out of the unhappy marriage or follow your dream and start that business that will ultimately bring you success financially, emotionally, mentally and spiritually!
Venus has been Rx in the sign of Pisces and goes Direct on April 15th. Pisces rules intuition and for the remainder of the month you will be able to connect with your intuition in terms of relationships. Remember, not just intimate relationships, also friendships as well as co-workers or employees.
If you have been contemplating going into a business partnership, your intuition will come in handy when recognizing the positive aspects of your new partner as well as the potential negatives!
Mars, the planet of action and energy will stay in the sign of Taurus until April 21st. You will notice that you have sustained energy to move through projects, slowly and carefully. Mars, rules your work area and there could be a raise on the horizon or passive income if you are self-employed. When Mars moves into Gemini on 21st you will find you are less able to concentrate and will start to have your fingers in many pies! This is also a great time to have business conversations and to put your ideas down on paper. Gemini allows you to flit from one thing to another, so make sure you capture all the information.
Finally, Pluto the planet of transformation will turn Rx on April 20th through September 28th. When Pluto is retrograde, we are guided to turn inward to our own personal shadow side and take a long hard look at the good, the bad and the ugly. Power, money and control come to the forefront. It’s also a time when we might want to get revenge on someone we believe has done us harm. The Rx also allows us to look at old wounds and see if it’s time to let go of the past.
On a much larger level, with Pluto Rx in Capricorn, the USA and other governments will be taking a long look at what they want to accomplish and what hasn’t been accomplished. If we have healthy government leaders, they will let go of that over which they have no control and move forward with issues over which they do have control. Depending upon the leader of the USA and/or other governments will determine if revenge is going to happen. The best outcome for everyone is to transcend the desire for revenge and destruction, which will cause unnecessary pain and slow the process of the Pluto healing down, and to find a way to work with others.
The New Moon in Taurus occurs on April 26th 2017. Look out for a separate communique closer to the time, where I will offer ideas, suggestions and information on the type of wishes to write.
COMING UP IN MAY 2017
The New Moon in Gemini occurs on May 25th 2017. Mercury will go direct on May 3rd and both Venus and Mercury will be in Aries for the middle two weeks of May. Mars will move into Gemini, so expect to do a lot of talking! We will still be experiencing Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto Retrograde.
