THE SOLAR SEASONS (VITALITY)

April 1st – 19th | ARIES SEASON
Spring vibrates a spark to life in us as the equinox marked the new astrological year. But, Mercury, planet of the mind and connection, has been working backwards in the last sign of the zodiac. In watery Pisces and in review mode at the edge of our boundaries, that spring spark has been sluggish under damp conditions. Starting the month, Mercury is newly direct but traversing forward in its final steps of a cycle. As Mercury retraces steps, but from a slightly adjacent path, working to catch-up to the sun for its own restart in Aries (April 17th), moments of ah-ha and deep understanding will settle, especially in the earliest days while near Neptune’s ability to compose in chaos. A gentle blend of fluidly grasping things layered on top of impulse and fresh urges to push our boundaries and perspectives, will be felt. That spark is lightening up. We are starting to find purpose in the slow start. Channel light and breathy songs. Use visualization to inspire creative urges. Move with tenderness yet eagerness. Tap into flow states starting to come available.

In addition to this, Venus will also be in Pisces until the 20th, bringing our hearts into a place of forgiveness, dreamy love, and openness. There is a definite tinge of the artistic or mystical flavoring our new year’s beginnings.

We also look to Mars, ruler of Aries Season, to see where he’s wanting to focus our fresh spring initiatives. On the last day of March he moved from Taurus’ agenda of finding our value and greater material worth, into Gemini, the connection and idea pollinator. This will add breezier movement to things as the air of this sign helps to dry out weightiness that’s been felt. Get out of your bubble. Move around. Engage with others and communicate with authenticity. What you want at your core, the passions most personal to your inner fire, need stoking from community and information until the 20th.

April 20th – 30th | TAURUS SEASON
The Bull rules our season of gardening the earth, reflecting how we are gardening our own material connection to life. This is a time to ground into matter, to solidly and responsibly awaken our senses and the simple yet profound pleasures they bring into our lives. How does your life sound, smell, taste, and look? What textures awaken your animal sensuality? Our bodies can find beautiful form, or at least spark new seeds of form, if we honor them with all that they deserve this season. This is not to feed into body image issues, rather to say, ‘what form helps me to feel my weight/matter and sensual va-voom?’. Weight and matter can be deeply essential or can be burdensome. Ask your body what form it wants to hold. Design a sensual life that will sustainably support this or find help to get you on a new track toward better connecting to your body’s voice. You may need to weed your garden or add to it. Get out of your mind in asking this. Talk directly to your other organs as your breath cycles in and out of their living intelligence. When we can talk directly to our bodies, feeling the alignment they are asking for, a new sense of self-worth moves through us, allowing us to use our voices to attract the worth we deserve. We manifest because we KNOW (confidence) rather than want (scarcity). Know your personal matter first and an improved knowing of the material around your life will follow.

Looking to Venus, goddess ruler of Taurus Season, we get more information on how she is wanting us to connect to our senses and matter. Newly in Aries, there is a bright spark that can help us be bold and clear about our sensual molding of life. Seeds planted in this season have the potential to bring new conditions into your life over the course of the next year.

LUNAR EBB AND FLOW (EMOTION)

1st – 4th | Balsamic Moon
Share your ideas and visions of self-trust with the world to bring a more well-rounded perspective to your beliefs and hopes. Nurture yourself a little more as the light of the moon wanes and nights are dark and long. Choose a guiding star.

In the sign of Pisces between the 1st and 3rd, share through a compassionate lens, the things deep inside that are asking to come out. Use gentleness to move through blocks to your self trust. On the 4th, in the sing of Aries, pre-new moon, share your perspectives of self, of identity, and your hopefulness in who you are becoming. Push yourself to trust that you can be and do more by moving outside of your comfort zone.

5th – 11th | New & Crescent Moon
There’s no better time to make focused and dedicated intentions around Self and personal passions with the sun and
moon aligning in assertive Aries. Relax and detach into lower energy levels as intuition and inspiration feel heightened and healing.

How are you being asked to reach high and think big about Self? What pressures are pushing on you? What integrity is being tested? Use this to both recognize your authority over yourself and also to understand what new intentions need to be set to build upon or correct your alignment in your authenticity and assertive clarity. From the 7th – the 11th as the moon moves into Crescent phase in Taurus and Gemini, detach from things overly solidified or complex. What do you need to question about the conditioning of your identity? What baggage is no longer serving your clarity and centering?

12th – 18th | First Quarter & Waxing Gibbous Moon
Feel into a growing energy and sense of Self. Get clear about what you want and be brave in taking some steps. As
the light of the moon begins to increase, this is your week to get a lot done. Identify new beginnings and center in you.

In Cancer, the moon will reflect back to us the need to use our intuitions to know ourselves in deep and nurturing ways. As the moon moves through Leo and Virgo from the 13th – 16th, find value for your personal passions through creative impulse and organize ideas or information sparking your vitality to life.

19th – 25th | Full & Waning Gibbous Moon
Taurus Season starts right after we dive into a rare second Libra Full Moon with a feeling of growth or letting go around our relationships, balance, and elegance. During a full moon week we are faced with a need to mature and atend to adulting.

As the moon moves into Scorpio and Sagittarius through the 23rd, Lean into your self-worth through any insecurity being felt around how you are sharing or being shared with, and how your resources are empowering or stressing you. The 24th and 25th will help you to connect to work and responsibilities that help you to feel your value.

26th – 30th | Last Quarter & Balsamic Moon
Relationships and sharing become prominent as we start to consider others,finding trust and depth in our exchanges. Outer world questions around values and finances will come up.

The Aquarius and Pisces moons in these phases will push us to find balance in our connection to the material through how we consider humanity and friendship, as well as uproot and release things blocking our worth in how we find compassion and understanding of divine worth.

EXTRAS

NUMEROLOGY
With April always holding the number 4 in its vibration, it’s always a month to get our foundations strong and stable. Spring cleaning, fresh meals, more light and energy to get outside and exercise in the daylight. With the year number being a fun-loving 3, we also find the number 7 holding court over this year’s April, allowing for a dreamier and more spiritually centered initiation into the year (which happens to align with all the Pisces energy in the stars). In short, do push into clarifying and detox type rituals, but don’t push yourself too hard. If you need rest or a bit of an escape, let things unfold more softly this April.

SOUTH NODE ACTIONS
The lunar nodes, specifically the south karmic node, is very active this month as it crosses over heavy hitter planets Pluto (April 4) and Saturn (April 30) in authoritarian Capricorn. What does this mean? This point is actually further intensified as the south nodes of both Pluto and Saturn are also hovering (and have been our whole lives) in Capricorn. Pluto just crossed his own node on February 6, but will reverse over it in the summer and then moving for good across his own south node in December. Saturn will do the same with his own south node next year, moving back and forth over it.

Let me break this down in a very simplified way and in my own view of what the south node represents (I may differ from some of your other beloved astrologers, just absorb what resonates with you). To me, the south node (a point on a planet’s orbit where they are projected to start descending below the ecliptic) is a point that shows where involutionary or personal development has reached fullness, just like the moment in a breath when you are done inhaling. The south node is where we need to start giving our gifts into the world. It can feel good to do this, to switch to the exhale. But it can also be triggering in that sometimes how we are measured out in the world doesn’t feel representative of how we’ve measured ourselves. It can also be triggering in that our output may be used in the world in a way we didn’t intend. It takes being cooperative. It takes being able to compromise. But it also means you need to decide what is fair. You can say no to things that feel totally upending. But, the ability to compromise shows your elegance when done in a balanced way (not being walked on but not being stubborn). In our personal lives, it’s up to us to decide the level of compromise that is right and ethical. In a more broad way, these planets rule greater pockets of people: Pluto (power struggles of generations), Saturn (reality and programed constructs of those born within a year or two of you).

Overall, through 2020, things powerful, political, structured, and patriarchal are in initiation moments of being weighed and measured, especially power holder Pluto—but with the lunar nodes crossing both planets this month, we’re going to see, in a more compact way, moments of conflict and karma igniting. We’ve already felt this coming, but it’s arriving in glaring ways, this month. On the 4th, begin to notice great conflicts or elegant partnering in worldly power. Come the 30th, begin to notice conflict or elegant partnering in corporations, executives, or great authorities in the world. These are also being weighed against all sorts of equality issues, and we will see underdog or under represented sections of society play issues out in more heightened ways than we’re already seeing. It’ll be a time of political and corporate lawsuits, arguments, but also partnering that brings about active equalizing. A time for real and dynamic adjustment is here. Let justice start to make long-needed impactful adjustments.

Personally, we tend to see loss via conflict during south node transits, or simply because the outer world’s needs are rearranging how things are being used. Try to find grace in what comes and goes. It’s NOT as personal as you’ll want to make it.

For each sign, Pluto and Saturn will rule certain areas of your life, and will affect those areas through Capricorn territory. I’ll give some simple thoughts in the by-sign horoscopes for what to be aware of.

SUN CONJUNCT URANUS IN TUAURS (1st time)
Uranus has been crossing back and forth between Aries and Taurus for the past year, but earlier last month, crossed for good into Taurus, just in time for this year’s Taurus Season.

Back in Aries, we saw tech, groups, and change, focused on identity (think trans pride, selfies, and influencers). With Uranus shaking up our overly stale ideas of Self and how unique we each are, we step into the next seven years of Uranus in Taurus with a revived sense of having reclassified who we were and are now becoming. From this place, we can now start to shake up the systems and constructs around how to re-value the new us. Groups, tech, and innovation will begin to focus on the matter/material of it all, and how humanity matters. Currency and banks will likely need to roll with some massive changes or be left behind. Personally, we each get to start recognizing (and note, this can come as a bitter taste), how our worth is measured. Groups will start shaking things up to change the notion of value. Co-creation will progress society and our views with plenty of experimentation and big changes. I’m definitely not one to give investment advice, especially as we can expect the unexpected from Uranus, but, things given form in-line with philosophies such as Ethereum (cryptocurrency), or other ways of breaking out of old value systems, can be expected.

As the sun crosses Uranus on Monday the 22nd, notice what comes up for you. Notice new group action (and shouting—it takes outrage to bring attention to, and then change, systems/constructs) and co-creative contributions being pushed into. I’ll give some thoughts for each sign in the below horoscopes.

RETROGRADES
We may be out of the woods with Mercury Retrograde this month (although still retracing steps til mid-month), but slower planets Jupiter (April 10), Pluto (April 24), and Saturn (April 29) all move into retrograde this month. These are not felt as profoundly due to being further out and slower moving, but they still initiate a time to review and share certain lessons they’ve been picking up on for many months. Jupiter, having entered Sagittarius (his home sign) in November, has been in a moment of revival, nurturing and maturing new grand dreams with fresh roots and strength. It’s time for him to take a deep breath out and look back to help us see what expansive aims (his specialty) have been truly aligned with our highest and best needs, and what was maybe too impulsive. We can do this by starting to share our beliefs and hopes in the world, getting feedback to help us reexamine our perspectives and broaden our scope of what’s possible. This will push on our boundaries, asking us to explore and keep a very open mind around how others think and believe. Come June 10th, at the mid-point of this retrograde, we will begin to integrate some of what we’ve both matured and shifted in us, in regard to our visionary or philosophical beliefs.

Similar things can be said for both Pluto and Saturn in retrograde. Pluto is turning to examine how he’s been mature and purposeful in his authoritative power. We will need to start sharing more of our power in order to see how what we think is empowering in us, around our integrity, really is (or needs tweaking). Integration for this will start at the mid-point of Pluto’s retrograde in July, and will land more fully once out of retrograde in October.

Saturn in his own home of Capricorn is in a two year resurgence of finding deep alignment and passion for building authority. In retrograde, we will be looking back at new roots and personal wholeness we’ve grown, figuring out what needs to be tweaked through sharing our authority in the world. It’s through the outpouring of our personal growth that we see where we need adjusting. Don’t be afraid to do things during retrogrades, just know that the outer world will push on your personal growth to better align with what the world needs from you. It means changes need to be made in order to become of the world and less self-centered. If you don’t put yourself out there in a retrograde, you don’t get the feedback needed to adjust to the world and then find your greatest ability to stand up under pressure. Through Saturn this has to do with our focus, dedication, and authority. Integration begins and the greatest pressure comes in mid-July at the mid-point of this retrograde, while more full integration lands late in September once the retrograde is over.


ARIES

March 21 - April 19

Your Ruler | Mars
All month your ruler will be in Gemini and your 3rd house of connection, communication, and information. This is a great time to revive a sense of Self through getting out into the world and moving around. Gather new ideas and pollinate something bright and attractive in yourself, blessing your year with variety in who you are becoming, at your core.

As the south node of the moon crosses over Pluto (April 4th) and Saturn (April 30) in your 10th house of career, you are being asked to step into greater authority and power in your life, in a way that is seen by the world. This may sound exciting, but you'll really need to get a grasp on compromise and cooperation. In this stage of stepping up, it's likely that partnerships in the professional world are how you will achieve this. You may have to bend on some things in order to harmonize with what is wanted of you and what you want. It's a dance that will need to be learned and the curve will likely been steep and tough. If you figure out what is fair and what is elegant (as well as not compromise in ethics), your reputation in the world will start to be noticed. It's right now that you are setting the stage around what in your power and what in your authority you are willing to bend in. Just make sure you aren't becoming known for bending in things too grey as that will buckle, eventually. Do cultivate a reputation of someone who listens and puts yourself in the shoes of others with status and power. See how what's good for them could be good for you, too.

As the sun meets up with Uranus for the first time in his new ingress in Taurus, this will ignite in you a new recognition of updates and corrections needed in how you connect to the material/matter in your body, possessions, and income. Depending on how your chart relates to Uranus and the angle it's currently at, this could feel either bitter and destabilizing or very exciting. Friendships and groups are the avenue that will bring this recognition, possibly leading to collaborations or being part of innovation over the next seven years.

It’s your season of rebirth as the sun puts a spotlight on you, reviving your life with new clarity, passion, and fresh paths showing themselves.

5th | ARIES NEW MOON: Make intentions around what you want for you. Detox, spring clean, and center with breath to identify what’s arising around Self. A new yearly cycle is starting.

TAURUS

April 20 - May 20

Your Ruler | Venus
Until the 20th, your ruler will be in the dreamy sign of Pisces. Surrender into a slower, softer path. Usually when our ruler is in this sign, things naturally organize to give you time for decompression. If it arises, take it. In your 11th house, friendships could capture your heart and bring deeply compassionate (or escapist) messages. You may also feel a tenderness for humanity and a strong need to do something that brings healing to a cause that's pulling at your heart strings. Although Venus' move into Aries on the 20th will, in some ways, bring greater clarity, in other ways it will ask you to see that you are at your boundary and to surrender some baggage that's weighing you down. This sign rules your final 12th house in your chart and is a place of shadow work, which for you is seeing the light and shadow around your sense of Self and ability to center with clarity. Take a time out to be with yourself. If you can, get sitter, a plane ticket, and book a retreat where you have very little on your plate other than to focus on you.

This month the south node of the moon will cross over powerful Pluto (April 4) and authoritarian Saturn (April 30). In the sign of Capricorn, this is taking place in your 9th house of expansion and perspective. This will ask you to weigh and balance your beliefs. It will ask you to make compromises is how you are sharing and expanding your vision and wisdom. A partner may present some expansive compromises you need to consider or want to partner with you in dreaming big. Joining forces with another is the way to push into more elegant expansion.

Uranus in newly in your sign, ready to shake up all that you think you know about yourself. It's going to ask you to get more radical, more aware of humanity, and more involved in collective works. The sun will make its first pass in this new position on Monday the 22nd. Pay attention to sudden shocks you feel around your sense of Self, or around innovative impulses

5th | ARIES NEW MOON: Make intentions around awareness of compassion, both toward yourself and others. Align with being assertive in connecting to your higher self.

19th | LIBRA FULL MOON: A second full moon in this sign signifies a rare depth growing in our Libra pursuits. For you, this brings extra emphasis to nurturing your work/life balance.

SEED ENERGY | Where you are solidifying with strength and integrity while also identifying new heights you aspire to reach: Spirituality, Surrender, Inspiration, Mysticism

BLOSSOMING ENERGY | Where recent flowering has helped you to start growing in your underground depths. This is a place to privately nurture in order to create more security out of insecurity being felt: Relationships, Other-Trust, Balance, Harmonizing



GEMINI

May 21 - June 20

Your Ruler | Mercury
Oof! It's likely been a rough month, Gemini. Your ruler has been rapid fire sending you information but with missing pieces, optics, and shadows all piled on top of a sense of urgency. To add to the mix, in the sign of Pisces during March's shadow & retrograde phase, a deep longing to understand something has been gnawing at you. Something you can't quite grasp. It's coming. Have patience. As soon as Mercury is out from under Neptune after the 3rd, slowly things will start to come into focus and that understanding you've been seeking will arrive. It's likely that career or authority has been the thing plaguing you with ups and downs. On the 17th as Mercury moves on to Aries and totally out of any shadow periods, a new lightness and clarity will be felt. Friends will swarm and you can get busy bee-ing your connective self in ways you adore. Organize gatherings and dream up fun ways to spark conversation with groups of people.

In another way a tough month is ahead as the south node of the moon crosses over powerful Pluto (4th) and strict Saturn (30th). This will arrive in the power center of your chart where investment, intimacy, the kind of deep trust that can cause trauma will ask that you step further into the world. You'll be asked to find compromise and cooperation in order to get what you have your controlled eye on. It's likely that your work will play into what you are trying to empower in greater ways in your life. Work on building relationships that will help you to unearth the authoritative and structured power in your secret depths. Watch the balance of power in order to stay out of power struggles. Are you withholding things? Are others withholding things? Are you using the resources of others in ways that will empower both you and them? Are you giving resources to others that will empower both you and them?

On April 22nd, the sun will cross Uranus for the first time in his new home since his ingress into Taurus. A revolution is heading into your shadow work, into how you find understanding and meaning in your life, and in healing or art. Be ready for a shakeup in how you give form and value to things mystical. Be ready to innovate and collaborate in order to bring voice to humanity through your wisdom and perspective. The next seven years will challenge you to break out of old ruts in your spiritual and spacial perspective.

A guide to what's solidifying with reach and what's tenderly growing in underlying fertile depths.

5th | ARIES NEW MOON: Make intentions around identifying with groups and co creation. Align with your progressive spirit and find bold clarity through a love for all.

19th | LIBRA FULL MOON: A second full moon in this sign signifies a rare depth growing in our Libra pursuits. For you, this brings extra emphasis to nurturing your heart and star quality.

CANCER

June 21 - June 20

Your Ruler | The Moon
Whenever the solar season falls in a sign that has the same modality as yours, such as in our current Aries Season (cardinal | initiator) your own cardinal directions (self, other, home, career) get ignited with action triggers. These triggers happen when your ruler, the moon, makes new, full, and quarter phase links in the other cardinal signs. For you, this is happening through the 19th. Starting the month off, you will have just come through the last quarter moon in Capricorn, asking you to find greater compromise and balance in your partnerships. The new moon on the 5th will trigger some pressure for you to take steps in your career or worldly aspirations. On the 12th, the 1st quarter moon in your own sign will bring some new passion to the surface, asking that you find clarity, centering, and impulse in order to stoke your inner flame. The last of these triggers will come on the 19th at the Libra Full Moon, bringing up insecurity in home and foundations, letting you know that it's time to go under your surface to use intuition and depth to root into your life.

This triggering of your cardinal directions can bring a lot of satisfying grow, growing pains, and action. It's a time to find out more about your guiding principles. Right now Cancers are going through deep shedding and surrendering as the north node makes its way into your sign. My best advice for you is to lean into exhaustion. Let it tell you what is baggage rather than an asset. Let it help you LET GO. We wouldn't let go of nearly as mush as we need to if it weren't for exhaustion. It's a beautiful tool that will help you transcend your boundaries as new inspiration is born out of what's surrendered. For some of you, this will continue for another year while some will find new dawns at your next solar return in July/August.

Another major moment of the month comes with the south node in Capricorn pushing, in reverse, over heavy hitter planets Pluto (April 4th) and Saturn (April 30). Falling in your 7th house, more power and authority is rising into your life either through a partner, by partnering with others, or through starting to share in bigger ways, how you use balance to give dynamic structure to life (structured design or corporate harmonizing). It's possible that something around your command or creative presence is partially igniting this new outpouring of energy. Do keep in mind that while you are pushed out into the world in greater ways, it takes a thick skin. Often what we value about ourselves may not be what's valued by those wanting to partner with us. Compromise will be asked of you and you have to decide what's fair. With compromise come elegance, which is noticed. But, in over compromising or compromising your ethics, you are starting to set yourself up for being known to bend where things are grey and potentially making trouble for yourself. Know you boundaries but put yourself in the shoes of others when you feel triggered.

For the first time since his ingress in to Taurus, Uranus will meet up with the sun. In your 11th house of groups and friendships, collaboration for value (or to bring form to things) is igniting in big ways. Over the next seven years you will be breaking out of old molds around what you think is powerful or empowering through exposure to innovative and collective values. Watch for first signs of this come Monday April 22nd.

LEO

July 23 - August 22

Your Ruler | The Sun
Until the 20th, it's all about expansion and perspective for you. Channel your wisdom or seek those with deep experiential wisdom to give you guidance. What is growing is vision and story in your life? What is it you are seeking and craving to share with the world? You are also still in a moment of personal rebirth as the north node only left your sign a few months ago. The visions streaming in are likely of the new beginnings type. Be patient with your impulses. Don't expect to succeed in all things right now, but do ride the exhilarating and exciting ride of having passion and resilience. You are taking some baby steps with bold courage and you have to experience some falls in order to understand your feet.

Come the 20th as your ruler, the sun, moves to the pinnacle of your chart in Taurus, slow down and try to enjoy the things you hold authority in. Try to find sensuality and value in how you uphold things in the outer world. Give form to your animal senses in a way that is responsible and integral.

A big moment in the stars comes this month as the south node of the moon crosses over powerful Pluto (April 4) and Professional Saturn (April 30). This is akin to some big energy coming to the end of an inhale and pushing that initial release of energy out into the world. It's a triggering point as it shows where some karma may catch up to us, or where outer world weighing and measuring of what is on offer isn't seen or used in the way we'd prefer. It takes compromise. It takes cooperation. It comes with finding fairness or conflict in our lives, but also the potential of bigger platforms, via partnering and harmonizing, recognizing us.

In your chart this is all going down in your 6th house of work and processes. Working with authorities, corporations, and structure brings you a lot of meaning and it's now time to show the world how your daily rhythms can bring useful and structured value to the world. It's possible that craving more security and rooting in your life is partially what's igniting a willingness to put yourself out there.

On Monday April 22nd, Uranus will meet up with your ruler, the sun, for the first time since he moved into Taurus (or the next seven years). Expect the unexpected, especially as it relates to partners and career. Your values are shifting around how you value fairness and relationship, and it's your co-creative career trajectory that is likely at the root of this.

VIRGO

August 23 - September 22

Your Ruler | Mercury
March was a foggy month, to say the least. In many ways April will bring greater clarity, but also some different pressures to orient around.

Your ruler, Mercury, is now in direct motion after a 3-week retrograde in Pisces. This is the last sign of the zodiac which brought you in contact with some of your most complex questions and a deep yearning to understand something that you couldn't quite pin down. The realm of relationships or harmonizing your energy from inner focus to outer focus has been central, but you've been pushing into this with heavy fogs on top of you as Neptune, ruler of Pisces, has also been on top of you. By the 3rd, you'll start to leave his mists behind, but in Pisces until the 17th, you'll still be wrangling with understanding relationship and balance in comprehensive ways. The phase of Mercury, just out of retrograde, as a morning star, will push you to break with convention and think outside of your normal dimensions. By the time Mercury moves to Aries on the 17th your grasp of space and relationships should have landed in very layered and beautiful ways.

In centering Aries for the rest of the month, your 8th house will push on you to find personal passion through uncovering your most powerful resources: invention, pioneering, independence. Others will want a piece of this, of your ability to make something out of nothing, to find the resources you need in order to empower your life through sheer will (maybe even force). You may resist sharing your resources due to the deeply personal struggle it's taken to unearth them. But, know that by opening up to the possibility that others can help you, you may help yourself. Others can use your drive, amplifying your personal power in ways that you likely can't on your own. Try to look at it not as giving your Self or identity away, but as loaning it on fair terms, to empower others and yourself in the process. Mercury in the morning star phase may make you even more resistant to sharing, wanting to push out into the world on your own to find new resources in your independent way. In some ways I see this as some greater force trying to control your inner maverick.

The big happening this month with the south node of the moon crossing over power player Pluto and strict boss Saturn will play out in your 5th house of command and creative expression. Your inner authority is developed to a place that's needing to give more out into the world. Find your courage and backbone as the world may start to see something in you that places you in the center of attention—due to your authority and powerfully structured information or ideas. You will begin learning some lessons around harmonizing that could come with conflict. You will need to decide where and how to bend in this right now. You will be tested to compromise in letting the outer world get what it needs from you without compromising yourself into gray areas or in ways that'll break you. Balance and fairness is the goal. When the world weighs and measures your command it may see you in ways differently than you'd have expected. Adjust but don't buckle.

On the 22nd, the sun will shine a light on Uranus for the first time since the rebel planet made his 7-year move into Taurus (last month). This will bring new attention to how your beliefs and philosophies are ready to shake off an old layer and start experimenting in expansive and radical ways. Push yourself to think about value and material life through different lenses. Ones that are uncomfortable and different. Think about ways to share your beliefs around value and sensuality with humanity and in ways that are for the good of all. Start making material your wisdom and visions in innovative or collaborative ways. Something about your work, lifestyle, or daily rhythms could be at the root of changes starting to rise up.

LIBRA

September 23 - October 22

Your Ruler | Venus
In dreamy Pisces until the 20th, your 6th house of work has your focus. Where are your boundaries with work and processes? How do you find fascination with organizing and refining thing mystical or complex? Just because you can do this doesn't mean you should blow all of your energy doing it. Pisces related things can bring exhaustion due to the weight this sign carries and the depth of comprehension it can absorb. Where Pisces is in our charts we have a lot of work to do in creating boundaries, in knowing why we want to escape, in surrendering and letting go of things. Boundaries with work, organizing, processing, and systemizing will help you calm the waters of your porous boundaries here, bringing more centering, more space, and more calmness to your life—resulting in more clear work.

This month the south node of the moon will cross over powerful Pluto (April 4) and structured Saturn (April 30). What this means for you is that your home life, roots, and security are quite matured and ready for more exchange and worldly movement. Do you feel stable and supported right now either through your family or conditions in home life? With that stability comes the nurtured sense to allow more exchange in the private foundations of your life. Maybe there'll be growth through new members, or taking on greater responsibility as an authority in your family. There may be something around your income or sensual, pleasurable connection to life that is partially responsible for this new feeling of sharing and opening.

On the 22nd the sun will shine upon Uranus in Taurus for the first time since he pushed into his new 7-year tour here. Pay attention to shakeups in how you are called to share your resources or find resources. Investment in radical things could feel urgent or you may find investment for yourself through crowdsourcing avenues, or fund/find funding for a collaborative and deeply humanitarian venture. Your views of the material world and the access to power (or lack of) that humanity has is starting to shake loose from dried-up skins.

SCORPIO

October 23 - November 21

Your Ruler | Pluto
Even though your ruler moves very slowly, rarely shifting your precise focus, this month has some big shifts in store for you (and you may have felt some shifts in the past month already). Back in February Pluto crossed what's called his south node. This is a mathematical point where the orbit of a planet (or cosmic body) starts to descend below the ecliptic. Similar in nature to autumn when we see the sun moving south of the equator bringing a theme of needing to work better together to get through darker days. To me it's like the beginning of an out breath where we've filled up, and now need to give outward. Think back over the past six of so weeks if you've felt a greater need to put yourself into the world. The point will really be driven home this month as the south node of the moon (a node we feel more personally as it's much closer in proximity to us) will also cross Pluto. Be ready to cooperate more but also be seen more. With this all taking place in your Capricorn ruled 3rd house, authority or achievements around connection, community, and communication will step up in your life through partnering, building professional relationships, and harmonizing within already established communities. This point insists on themes of harmonizing as we are challenged to let others in more. What this means is that there IS something to harmonize. Conflict is the other end of this spectrum and can certainly pop up. Be sure communication and expectations are clear as the worst case scenario are lawsuits while the best case is you find that sweet spot of dancing with others in dynamic, moving balance.

How you are being weighed and measured in the world may not match how you weigh and measure yourself. People may want to use your gifts in ways you never intended. It's about finding compromise with out bending too far or setting yourself up in grey areas where you will start to gain a reputation for shady connections. Your setting the stage right now on how well you cooperate which can bring elegance if done fairly.

On Monday April 22nd, Uranus will be lit up by the sun for the first time since his 7-year ingress into this sign last month. This will shine a light on how you are starting to break out of old molds around relationships and harmonizing. Anything stale or overly solidified will need to be shaken loose. Think outside of the box, shake up ruts by experimenting with new ideas and collaborative projects, or do things with partners that are innovative or that contribute to humanity together. Worst case is relationships that are stagnate may break up. Best case, you revive new passion and progress in relationships through finding new and excitingly different values rising out of your other.

On the 24th Pluto is heading into a long retrograde. Lots of outer world urgency can be felt, making you want to put yourself out there. What happens in this is you get feedback on what is needed of you versus what you are trying to give. It shows you how to shift, how to rethink what you want and who you're becoming, and asks that you look inside to help decide what changes you should or shouldn't make. In your 3rd house, a lot is happening around connection and community. This is the area your are outpouring into (in a lot of threads of your life) and where you will be asked to tweak and update yourself. At the mid-point of this retrograde in mid-July, you start to feel some integration take place, and then back to direct in October, more full integration and fresh perspective will land.

SAGITTARIUS

November 22 - December 21

Your Ruler | Jupiter
Take advantage of all of the new personal growth and passion surfacing in your life until the 10th. At this point, Jupiter, your ruler, will be heading into a several month retrograde. More and more I'm viewing the optics of retrogrades very differently. To me they indicate an urgency felt to outpour yourself into the world, where you are then met with the needs, expectations, critiques, and differing perspectives of the world. This all pushes on you to make shifts and rethink how you're using or giving your gifts into the world. By being active during a retrograde you get the feedback needed around how the world wants to consume your fruits. Even though this can mean having to redo things or backtrack, if you don't put yourself out there, you may miss needed feedback.

This is a big reset year with Jupiter's once in 12 year tour through his own sign—your sign. This means what you are putting out into the world is likely shiny and fresh with bendy and supple growth, but also something that is just sprouting baby roots and learning to walk. This may feel like a tough retrograde as it's the first feedback you'll be getting on the new 12-year path ignited when Jupiter landed in your sign in November. Don't take things too personally or overreact. Be grateful for critiques that will ultimately help you condition your soils for better new growth conditions. This early phase is very self-centered so your impulse may create some head-butting during this retrograde. Just try to listen to what comes up. It's VERY likely that in your rush to start new projects, you've missed some big holes.

In mid-June the middle point of this retrograde will help you to begin integrating lessons you've learned, but will put direct pressure on you. By mid-August after your retrograde is over, new understanding will have landed and you can break out of the molds you've created with fresh ideas and radical progress.

There are big nodal events taking place this month—an outward push of self into the world. Both powerful Pluto (April 4) and strict Saturn (April 30) will be crossed over by the south node of the moon. For you, this is all happening in the Capricorn ruled 2nd house of your chart. Greater power, sureness, and structure may start to be felt around how you connect to material life, your self-worth, and the simple pleasures of living in an earthly, sensual existence. You like structure around these things, traditional values, and build with focused and pressurized authority. This can bring you a very tough-on-yourself kind of worth. But all of the hard work and slow, careful building around your value is in a place of fullness.

This will bring more relating and partnering into your life through the structured value you own. What have you built that others are starting to see, or that you're starting to allow to be seen? It's possible that something powerfully mystical, artistic, or healing is partially at the root of your personal value now coming into its own. You may find that how others weigh and measure what you put out isn't the same as your own value scale. You need to find cooperation and compromise to give of your valued gifts in the way others want to receive them, without compromising what it is at its roots. Balance and fairness are the name of the game, but you will need to put yourself in others shoes a bit more in how you are exchanging on your authoritative and composed worth.

On Monday April 22nd, the sun will light up Uranus for the first time since he made his 7-year ingress into Taurus, last month. You may feel something shaking up in your day-to-day, lifestyle, and work. What's stale and needing updates in the mundane and organization of your daily rhythms? You may begin to work more with groups, do innovative or humanitarian work, work in collaboration, with friends, or just shake out of old patterns. This can all feel deeply exciting or destabilizing, depending on your relationship to Uranus. Community, learning, connection, your mind/ideas, writing, or communication may be at the root of this need to shake things up in your mundane life. Watch for some first clues to what's shifting for you in the Taurus Season portion of this month.

CAPRICORN

December 22 - January 19

Your Ruler | Saturn
You have a big end of the month in April, Cappy. On the 30th the south node of the moon will cross over your ruler, Saturn, in your own sign. Something in you is coming into a wholeness, ready to be shared into the world. This point when the shifting orbit of the moon starts to descend below the ecliptic can be a triggering point when it hits on you in such a personal way. In your 1st house of Self, something you like to have full say of, is going to need to cooperate more, compromise, and learn with more finesse the art of giving and receiving. In this new dance you are being asked to enter, you'll need to decide for you, what is too compromising of who you are and what you can bend in, giving others more of what they ask for. You are ready to offer who you are in a bigger way, just keep in mind that this will open you up to more feedback about who you are, the good and the difficult.

Earlier in the month on April 4th, Pluto in your sign will also be crossed by this point showing that something around your progressive, technological, collaborative, or group-centric efforts has also ripened and is wanting to be utilized in a more outward offering through your personal passion or a personal project. Because this is something channeling out of the core of you, you may be less willing to compromise when this meets the world's feedback, but do try to listen to critiques. Sometimes the things we develop during the inhales of life, are not received as we hoped in the exhales. This doesn't mean that our efforts are any less valuable, we just need to reorient and find fair compromises. When done in a balanced and fair way, you generate an elegance in you that becomes noticeable, luring more of the world to you for your gifts.

The keys for you this month will be to listen, be considerate, and open minded.

On Monday the 22nd, the sun will shine its rays onto Uranus for the first time since his 7-year ingress into Taurus, last month. In your 5th house, things will start to get shaken up around your creative presence and command that need to be broken free from. Your voice, your values & self-worth, your connection to the material world, and even income, are at the root of how and why this shake up is coming. Notice in the last ten days of the month, little (or glaring) clues to what's coming with this many year transit. How would you like to see your creative potential and leadership valued in new and unique ways?

AQUARIUS

January 20 - February 18

Your Ruler | Uranus
Earlier last month your ruler made a big 7-year ingress into a new sign and house of your chart, totally reorienting your life. But as this happened the end of your personal year has been playing out, bringing a need to tie up loose ends and hold pressure on your shoulders. The good news is you will get some fresh energy stating at the end of this month when the sun enters Taurus on the 20th (really the night of the 19th). You'll feel the inner shift on a whole new level on the 24th as the sun shines on your ruler. It will become more clear and more obvious where new paths are open to you and how this is also asking you to root into home and the security of your family a little more. Having been under the rulership of Aries since 2011 and in your connection loving 3rd house, you've been very busy and active in your life. It's time to slow way down. Taurus wants you to enjoy the matter of life, the sensual pulse of being on earth and in a human body. This is also a sign that can generate a confident voice and a knowing of what you are worth. It's funny how sometimes when we slow down, we honor things more, bringing more to us. The initial shakeup may not feel this way, but slowly this will land for you.

Another big shift taking place this month is the south node of the moon crossing over power player Pluto (April 4) and authority Saturn (April 30). This will play out in your 12th house of shadow. Of all the signs it may be the most difficult for you to clearly feel this taking place. Something about your compassion, your art, mysticism, or healing is coming into its own, pushing further onto the world's stage. This initial push over a horizon line, like an exhale after a deep in breath, is showing that your authority and power are ready to be more fully shared with others. Notice a new grasp and understanding of how things hard to touch, the complex, and composition come a little more effortlessly to you. Be ready for feedback from outside of you though. This is a time when the world is weighing and measuring you in ways maybe different that you have, specifically around the above mentioned areas. Cooperation but also fairness are the path forward. Be open minded about feedback but ultimately it must be you who decides what can and can't be compromised in order to keep integrity in your compositions. It's possible that something in your career is the partial root for this new outpouring of fluid wholeness.

PISCES

February 19 - March 20

Your Ruler | Neptune
Over the past 4-5 weeks your ruler has been busy mingling with the sun, consoling a disoriented Mercury, and now also hosting pleasant Venus. It's been a lot. Like a bunch of guest in and out. Sometimes fun, sometimes overwhelming, sometimes soothing. For the most part your current guests of Mercury (back to direct and positive) and beautiful Venus are a fun lot, but you're also likely feeling a bit worn down. This will come to an end soon enough but stay present. Mercury has messages for you about relationships and your roots. Venus is helping you beautify your life and better find personal passion for community and your innermost resources.

A magical mathematical point in the heavens where the shifting orbit of the moon starts to descend below the ecliptic (the south node) will make some important intersections this month. Crossing over powerful Pluto (April 4) and authoritarian Saturn (April 30), something about your ability to bring structure to groups, hold responsibility in things innovative, or be radical about constructs is coming into its own. You've reached some sort of wholeness, like the end of an inhale, and are ready to start giving outwardly in greater ways around these things. This is also a point where the outer world is weighing and measuring you so you will need a tougher skin about critiques. The point here is to listen to how others are wanting to use and dance with your gifts without compromising to the point of losing integrity. Think balance, fairness, and cooperation and you'll fair well.

On Monday April 22nd, the sun will shine directly onto Uranus for the first time since his 7-year ingress in to Taurus, last month. Watch around this date for new themes to appear around shake up and breaking out of stale, old molds in your communities, connections, and what your learning has previously been aligned with. It's time for radical new information and connections to shock you to attention. Your valuable voice and your material connection to words, community, or learning is due for updates. This can feel both exciting and destabilizing. There may be something about efforts in healing, art, or mysticism that is pushing this new lens into being.
