Astrological Happenings April 2018

Astrological Happenings APRIL 2018

  • We start the month with two Retrograde Planets.  Mercury, the Planet of Communications is going backwards in Aries.  Jupiter, the Planet of luck, growth and expansion is in Scorpio.
  • Before the end of April, Mercury will go Direct, and we will have two more Planets turn Retrograde, Saturn and Pluto.  Both Planets are in the Sign of Capricorn now.
  • We have a New Moon in Aries, which rules risk taking, starting a new project or relationship.  More to come later in the month about the New Moon

On April 15th Mercury, the Planet of communications comes out of Retrograde and turns Direct.  As it’s in the Sign of Aries, you will be able to continue being direct in your communications with others.  New information will come your way that will give you ah-ha moments about your personal and/or professional life.

Those of you who are self-employed are being given another opportunity to present something new to your clients, customers or patients.

Also, on April 15th we will be experiencing a New Moon in Aries.  An opportunity for you to write out 10 wishes around the areas of life that Aries rules.  More to come in a separate e-mail.

Jupiter will remain Retrograde for about 4 months, so now is the time to continue the internal search for YOUR truth.  Are you listening to red flags in your personal relationships?  Are you hearing, seeing or knowing that red flags at work or in your business?  Time to take the blinders off and get real about where you are at and what needs to change.  Read more about Jupiter Rx in last month’s Astrological Happenings.  Nothing changes if nothing changes!

Mars is still in the sign of Capricorn until the middle of May, so it’s still a month of looking at the work area in your life.

Are you happy and content to spend your money-making time doing what you are current doing? (notice if the Itty Bitty Shitty Committee, those negative voices in your head, start to talk you out of your intuition!)  Do you enjoy the environment in which you find yourself daily?  Are you engaged and feel appreciated?  Is there drama and chaos where you work, and you need to learn tools and resources to handle the draining of your emotions daily?

What needs to be changed?  Get writing about your Ideal work environment.  Doesn’t mean you are going to get it today.  You are just putting in your order to the Universe.

On April 17th, Saturn, the Planet of Obstacles, Challenges and Structure will turn Retrograde.  Currently Saturn is in Capricorn, which is it’s ruling Planet, which makes the Saturn effects more powerful.  Use your intuition, if you don’t have your astrological chart, to determine which area of your life needs more structure.  It will probably be an area that has been hi-lighted in your life in the past few months.

E.G.  If you have noticed you have had a lot of money issues, or you have been really looking at what you value, then you will have something going on in your 2nd House in your Astrological Chart.

If you have been having issues at work, with others, your environment, and generally feeling unappreciated, you will need to re-evaluate where you are going in your career.  You will have something going on in your 10th House in your Astrological Chart.

What area of your life needs to be re-structured?

On April 22nd Pluto, the planet of transformation also goes Retrograde.  Pluto is the slowest moving Planet and therefore affects generations.  With Pluto in Capricorn we have seen a transformation with our government.  We have recently seen a transformation in the form of the Parkland students marching on Washington.

Whilst generational change does take place during this period of history, we also must look at what needs to be transformed personally.
As Pluto is in Capricorn, the same as Saturn (even though now they are vast degrees apart), it’s about transformation and re-structuring until September 6th for Saturn and into 2019 for Pluto.

On April 24th Venus, the Planet of Love enters the Sign of Gemini, giving us many opportunities to communicate how we feel to those who are important.  Lots of learning and communications at this time, especially if you focus on what you are looking for in your life and where you can learn what you need to fill in that missing pieces.

If you are self-employed, it’s a great time to create an on-line learning program or a way for your clients, customers and patients to connect with you.  Put together a workshop or a Teleclass.  You may be surprised how many people want to learn what you have to teach!



The New Moon in Taurus occurs on May 15th. Mercury will also be in Taurus for the month of May and Uranus enters Taurus for the first time since 1934-1941, a period that heralded a need to feel secure in all ways due to WWII. Uranus is the unexpected and Taurus moves slow and steady and is all about money and value. Read more about that in the upcoming Astrological Happenings for April 2018.

Is it time for an Initial or Follow Up Consultation?
