Got to run for now….

Sorry, hopefully tomorrow will be a better day. I swear if it ain’t one thing, it is five others these days.

Love ya,

Lady A

Moon Magic & The Zodiac Signs

Moon Magic & The Zodiac Signs

(Information compiled by Jenwytch – see references at bottom of page.)

The moon remains in each zodiac sign for approximately 2.5 days before moving on to the next sign, and makes a complete transit of the Zodiac every 27 days, 7 hours and 43 minutes.

Aries Moon

(Fire) ruled by Mars – Good for starting things, but lacks staying power. Things occur rapidly, but quickly pass. Beginning of things, matters of self and your personality. Cleansing and personal development, starting new things and new beginnings, especially financial and medically related, leadership, willpower, spiritual conversations, authority, rebirth, leadership; healing spells of the head, brain, eyes, bones of face, teeth, pineal gland.

Aries is a barren sign, not known for being conducive to inner-plane endeavors such as pathworking, dream word, or astral projection, although it is an excellent time to work magick for new ventures particularly if they are financial, medical, or related to construction. Because Aries is a fire sign it is energetic, good for working magick for personal strength and stamina. On the negative side it is also connected with impatience and dominance.

Taurus Moon

(Earth) ruled by Venus – Things begun now last the longest, tend to increase in value, and become harder to alter. Financial matters of personal nature, vehicles, benefits, possessions. The increase of a sensual or artistic nature, abundance, productivity, determination, loyalty, trust, love, prosperity, money and material things, acquisition; healing spells for the throat, neck, jaw, chin, tonsils, thyroid, vocal cords, ears.

The moon in Taurus makes us protective and stubborn, and brings out our artistic natures. It’s a good time for magick where issues of trust and loyalty are at stake, and it can give a boost of determination to see you through to the end of any endeavor. Astrologers say that the moon is “exalted” in Taurus, in this case meaning it stabilizes and hones the emotional influences of the moon. Passions can run high during this transit and spells to increase one’s sensual nature are at their best. One warning, however: spells begun with the moon in stubborn Taurus may be hard to shut down once they are underway.

Gemini Moon

(Air) ruled by Mercury – Things begun now are easily changed by outside influence. Relatives, communication, studies, writing, street smarts. Communication, writing, wit, study, healing, travel; healing spells for the arms, hands, shoulders,lungs, thymus, bronchial tubes, speech.

Gemini is the most eclectic of all the signs, but also the most mercurial and fickle. Because the sign is ruled by Mercury, it is an excellent time for any type of spells concerning communication, writing, mass media, or for ferreting out one’s hidden enemies. Moon in Gemini can make the superficial appear stable; you should not jump to conclusions about the success of your spells at this time. Healing spells also work very well during moon in Gemini.

Cancer Moon

(Water) ruled by Moon – Pinpoints need, supports growth and nurturance. Home environment, mothers, end of life, family. Creativity, insight, sensitivity, the home, your psychic nature, domestic life; healing of the stomach, breasts, diaphragm, womb, ribs, digestive organs.

Cancer is the home of the moon and is the most fertile sign in the zodiac. Virtually any venture undertaken during this time will grow favorably, especially psychic and inner-plane endeavors. This is also the best sign for dealing with matters relating to the home, fertility, pregnancy, children, or the emotions. Planting and growing are also under the influence of Cancer, and magick for any type of growth or increase will quickly take root. Moon in Cancer also brings out our protective natures and lets the imagination flourish.

Leo Moon

(Fire) ruled by Sun – Showmanship, favours being seen, drama, recreation and happy pursuits. Pleasures, hobbies, love affairs, entertainment, sports, your pets. Leadership, strength, pride, power, vitality, and binding spells. This is a popular time to cast spells and to ask for favours. physical arts such as acting, fertility, and power, authority, courage, fertility; healing of the upper back, spinal cord, heart, blood circulation, spleen, vital forces.

In contrast to the fertile Cancer, Leo is the most barren sign in the zodiac, one seemingly desolate and unfit for magick. On the other hand, Leo is governed by the vibrant power of the sun, which rules prosperity, leadership, celebration, and celebrity. Moon in Leo brings out our magnanimous natures and can be a good time for working magick on behalf of others. On the negative side, it can make us self-indulgent, a time when the temptation to do negative or manipulative magick is strongest. This is also a fine transit for working spells for leaders, for the sane use of power, and for binding spells.

Virgo Moon

(Earth) ruled by Mercury – Favours accomplishment of details and commands. Working environment, health, service extended, clothing. Stability, health, victory, and financial improvements, self-improvement project, intellect, employment, health, and of course details, employment, health, food and diet; healing of the nervous system, intestines, abdominal organs, bowels, spleen.

Virgo is the fastidious intellectual of the zodiac. When the moon is in Virgo it is a good time to work with matters pertaining to education, volunteerism, and health. It is also a prime time for casting spells requiring great attention to detail, as this is also the province of Virgo. Spells worked for mental prowess, stability, and conscientiousness take deep roots in Virgo. Keep in mind that Mercury, the planet which rules Virgo, is cerebral, whereas the moon is emotional; this can be a source of either conflict or harmony for your spells, depending upon the desired outcome.

Libra Moon

(Air) ruled by Venus – Increases self-awareness, favors self-examination and interaction with others. Marriage, partnerships, legal matters, small animals. Peace, diplomacy, couple’s magick, artistic and spiritual work, karma and justice, unions, balance (spiritual and otherwise); healing of the lower back, adrenals, kidneys, venous system, lumbar nerves, skin.

While the moon is in Libra our minds turn to aesthetics and to balance. It is a good time for couple’s magick, and for all spells for peace and balance, or for the promotion of fairness and justice. Venus rules romance and this is a propitious transit for love magick. Spells requiring, or aligned with, diplomacy and adaptability also work well.

Scorpio Moon

(Water) ruled by Pluto – Increases awareness of psychic power. Ends connections. Death, sex, taxes, inheritances, transformation. Ambition, heightened sensitivity, and things in which are hidden, divination, matters of transformation and desire, life changes, sexual fantasies, psychic growth; healing of the reproductive organs, bladder, urinary system, colon, prostate, coccyx.

Scorpio is the keeper of secrets, and a good time to try and unlock occult wisdom through divination and ritual. It is also a very fertile sign and a good time to work on fertility and sex magick. Matters pertaining to deceit, trustworthiness, and things hidden are best dealt with now. Scorpio is the sign of ambition, and spells for personal promotion work well at this time. Ruled by Pluto, the sign is linked to the work of the dead, and conditions for solid magick for the spirit world are optimal. This transit is very compatible with almost all lunar spellwork.

Sagittarius Moon

(Fire) ruled by Jupiter – Encourages flights of imagination and confidence. Religion, metaphysics, long-distance travel, in-laws, higher learning. Spirituality, self-mastery, peace, finding the truth, exploration, legal matters or publishing, travel, sports, horses; healing of the liver, hips, thighs, sciatic nerve, arterial system, pelvis, sacrum.

Moon in Sagittarius makes us all philosophers and places us in a frame of mind to deal with issues of humanity, peace, and the right way of the universe. Sagittarius is the sign of the non-conformist, an excellent time to experiment with new spells and ritual methods. Because of its optimistic nature, challenges are often accepted during this transit, making it a good time to work magick for the more elusive things in your life.

Capricorn Moon

(Earth) ruled by Saturn – Increases awareness of the need for structure, discipline. Business, career, reputation, fathers, honour. Material concerns and grounding, past lives, careers, political matters and recognition, organisation, ambition; healing of the knees, bones, skin, cutaneous system, joints, knee-cap.

While the moon is in stable Capricorn is the time for dealing with material concerns, such as magick for obtaining a much needed item. It is also a transit when pessimism and despondency tend to come to the fore front. If you are prone to depression, avoid divination during this transit and, instead, work spells for a better mental attitude. This is a time of stability, when grounding rituals and centering rituals work especially well. The influence of Capricorn’s ruling planet, Saturn, can assist in uncovering past-lives and overcoming past negative influences.

Aquarius Moon

(Air) ruled by Uranus – Favours activities that are unique and individualistic. Friendship, acquaintances, hopes and dreams, groups and organizations. Peace, understanding, rational actions, gatherings, troubled covens to gather, aid in achieving personal goals, freedom, creative expression or problem solving, cultivate your extrasensory abilities and friendships. Science, friendship, breaking bad habits or addictions; healing of the calves, ankles, tibia, fibula, circulation, the breath.

There’s been a lot of New Age hype about the sterling qualities of Aquarius but, like all the signs, it has its negative aspects. These include a tendency to selfishness, air-headedness, thought without action, and generally allowing one’s mind to wander aimlessly in some vast pseudo-intellectual wilderness. However, it is also a time when people as a whole tend to be inspired to higher consciousness. Because of this, the Aquarian transit is a good time for troubled covens to meet. Magick for world peace and understanding are best undertaken during this sign. Warning: because this sign is now outwardly fighting for its identity in this New Age, anything can happen in your Aquarian/moon magick.

Pisces Moon

(Water) ruled by Neptune – Energy withdraws from the surface of life, hibernates within, secretly reorganizing and realigning. Inner development, karma, restrictions, secrets revealed. Dream work, astral projection, sensitivity, compassion, divination. (Avoid protection spells.) Energy is now withdrawing, it is a time to reorganize. Good time for clairvoyance, telepathy and music workings, art, telepathy; healing of the feet and toes, lymphatic and glandular systems, synovial fluids.

Because of the dualistic character of the Piscean Age, Pisces has gotten a bad reputation as a two-faced character. This is anything but true. Ruled by watery Neptune, Pisces is a highly psychic sign and is a good time to try that divination method which has always eluded you. The two fish which symbolize the sign point not merely in two different directions. but the upper and lower worlds, and the inner and outer realms, offering us a bridge between them. It is a time when emotions can become clouded and melancholy; you should avoid protection spells unless you are sure you will not be tempted to cross the line of manipulation. Moon in Pisces brings out our compassionate natures and can aid in making magick for others. It is also a good time for dream work, astral projection, guided meditations, and is highly compatible with all lunar spellwork. Second only to Cancer, Pisces is the most fertile of all the signs.

Get A Jump On Tomorrow, Your Horoscopes for Wednesday, April 3

Moon Alert

Caution: Avoid shopping or big decisions from 11 AM to 11 PM EDT today (8 AM to 8 PM PDT). After that, the Moon moves from Pisces to Aries.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Be careful because most of this day is a Moon Alert. In addition, the Moon is at odds with Jupiter, which is a nice “feel-good” influence, but it also makes you want to go overboard and be extravagant emotionally and practically.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is a wonderful day to hang out with others and enjoy their company. Meet friends for lunch or Happy Hour. Enjoy interacting with people if you are attending meetings, classes, conferences or little get-togethers. Warning: during the Moon Alert agree to nothing important.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You will interact with parents, bosses and VIPs today, therefore, be aware this is a poor day to volunteer for anything or to agree to anything important because of the Moon Alert. (See above.) Be careful of biting off more than you can chew, which you’re tempted to do!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Resist the temptation to make travel plans today (see Moon Alert above). Be careful not to go overboard in discussions about racial issues, politics or religion. Today people’s emotions are bigger than life, which is why they will fight hard to defend them.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Although you are focused on taxes, debt, wills and inheritances today – this is a poor day to do anything important or sign papers. Do your homework but defer important decisions until tomorrow. This is for your own protection. (Doesn’t that sound like you’re about to get a vaccination?)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Be cooperative with others because the Moon is opposite your sign for most of today. Even though you might be in an easy agreement with someone, this does not mean you should agree to anything important. Don’t go overboard in any way.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Relations with coworkers are good today. Keep to your regular schedule – don’t try anything different. Don’t introduce new ideas. Don’t get carried away with work-related travel plans. Easy does it because there is a Moon Alert for most of today.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is a wonderful day to be creative. It’s also a great day to party and enjoy the company of others! Enjoy sports events, playful activities with children and romantic get-togethers. Restrict spending to gas, food and entertainment.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a good day to entertain at home. It’s also great day for family discussions. Don’t lend or borrow money today, and restrict your own spending to food, gas and entertaining diversions. Stock the fridge! Company’s coming!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your daily plans might be delayed, or they could go off the rails because most of today is a Moon Alert. However, this is a creative day because you can think outside of the box; nevertheless, it’s a loosey-goosey day, especially if you’re trying to stick to a plan. Make no promises today. Wait until tomorrow.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Restrict your spending to food, gas and entertainment today. Postpone important financial deals until tomorrow because today you might go overboard and later regret it. Pull in your reins a little and resist excess. (That’s when you’ve gone past reasonable.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Today the Moon is in your sign; and for most of this day, it’s a Moon Alert. On the whole, it’s a feel-good day and you will enjoy schmoozing with others. You will also be in touch with your creative muse. However, it’s a poor day to spend money on anything other than food, gas and entertainment.

Born on April 2, Happy Birthday Aries!

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday Aries!

 

IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS April 2, you should be a creative or inventive Aries. You have that eye for peculiar things and a bold quality to go with it. That could be a dangerous combination as you approach life but you remain humble and independent.

Mostly, as your birthday horoscope personality traits show, you are an honest, emotional and friendly Arian. You usually are a good judge of character. Those born on this day believe that everything happens for a reason and that accidents don’t necessarily just happen.Your Arian April 2 birthday characteristics are comprised of many favorable qualities. Every once in a while, you can be distracted by your naivety or by a lack of self-confidence. You can allow yourself to be passive, inadvertently, of course.

You seek the help of your family member while some under the same zodiac sign will not. To some, you give the impression of someone who is “cool” but on the other hand, can be idealistic.

People born on April 2nd, enjoy socializing with friends and family and are usually a source of inspiration for them. Arians practice discretion so you are a trustworthy person. You are a fair and just Aries. You look forward to a family of your own.

The April 2nd birthday astrology analysis suggests that while you are patient, you want movement and excitement in your love life. At the same time, Aries wants a long-term love relationship that is secure, passionate and fun.

You like all day foreplay meaning you like the little love notes tucked away in your pants pocket or receiving sexy photos unexpectedly in the middle of your hectic day. You love to touch and to be touched.

What is most desired of you is your listening ability and your unconditional support and love. You have no problem giving this to your devoted partner.

The downside to an Arian lover is an obsession. You may have to deal with highly charged emotions if you are not careful. Remain objective to avoid turbulence. To make any relationship viable, one has to trust. Refine your thoughts to a more positive outlook.

Success only comes to those who work for it. If today is your birthday, you are good at so many things that a career choice could be a matter of drawing an occupation out of a hat. You have a winning attitude that allows you to make steady progress in your chosen field of professions.

Those that focus on your natural talents are best for you, however. Arians with a zodiac birthday April 2, have the capability to plan to achieve full potential eliminating any ceilings on success.

This will help in your quest for financial fitness when you come of retirement age. You strive to have a balance between home and work. Arians born on this day are quite logical and conservative when it comes to spending.

What your birthday April 2nd tells about you is that you are usually in tune with their bodily needs and malfunctions. You maintain your health as a part of a regular routine and are inclined to eat the organic foods you were raised on.

Otherwise, you are mainly ill due to a stressful situation. When your body does become ill, you bounce back quickly into your daily activities once the issue has been resolved.

The 2nd April birthday meaning shows that you believe in yourself and have a wonder imagination. You like to have fun and you expect great things from your partner.

You do well in any profession as you strive for stability and maintenance of both social and business life. You would be in perfect health if it weren’t for conflict and life’s disappointments. Those things show their ugly faces and make you ill.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, April 2

Moon Alert

We have the “all clear” today to shop and do business. The Moon is in Pisces.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Your Spidey sense is heightened today, which is why you should listen to your intuition and your hunches. However, if for some reason, you think that something fishy is going on – it is! Obviously, hunches and intuition are not infallible, so be careful. Keep your eyes open.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

A conversation with a friend or a member of a group might take a very genuine, confidential, heart-to-heart turn today. People are willing to let their hair down and put their cards on the table. Nevertheless, an element of confusion or misunderstanding is also present. Be aware of this.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today your ruler Mercury is lined up with fuzzy Neptune, which can enhance your communications in a subtle, creative way; or on the other hand, (you have different fingers) people will create static and confusion in how they see things. Tread carefully!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today you will be intrigued to study metaphysics, philosophy and unusual, mysterious subjects because you are eager to learn the truth about something misty and intriguing. You want to trust your beliefs. (“Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.”).

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is not an ideal day to make important financial decisions concerning how to divide something or share an inheritance or deal with shared property. Admittedly, people feel generous and genuinely concerned for each other; nevertheless, misunderstandings can arise. Easy does it.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Your dealings with partners and close friends are tricky today. In one way, you might feel very tuned in to them – you almost know what they’re going to say before they speak. Nevertheless, you might also misread their signals and get it wrong. Make no assumptions today.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You might feel sympathetic with a coworker today, especially if they’re dealing with problems. In a few cases, however, you might be suspicious that this other person is crying crocodile tears. Tough call. If you’re not sure how to read this situation – do nothing.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Your creative, artistic abilities are finely tuned today, which is why you are really in the zone if you are acting, writing, painting or doing anything that requires your imagination and intuition. This can be a fortunate, productive day for you!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Family discussions might be confusing today or on the other hand, they might bring people together because of a shared, mutual sense of sympathy. You will be sympathetic to others, that’s for sure. However, make sure you have a grasp of what is really going on. Don’t believe everything you hear.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Although your intuition is highly developed today along with your imagination, nevertheless, this is not a good day to sign important papers or to agree to anything important because you have Vaseline on your lens. Things will look different in a few days.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Be careful about shopping and spending sprees today because you will be tempted to buy elegant, luxurious items that might be too pricey. Later, you might wonder why you did it. Obviously, keep your receipts. And the box. Postpone important financial decisions.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You are very tuned in to the wants and needs of others today because you feel genuinely sympathetic and empathetic to whatever is happening in their world. You want to help them. Nevertheless, you might be susceptible to being deceived or confused. Just watch but do nothing. Get your data but wait for another day to act.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Academic/cultural critic Camille Paglia (1947) shares your birthday today. You are an energetic leader. You are creative, spontaneous and generous. It’s time to leave behind heavy burdens and move to something new and lighter! Start taking inventory so that you can let go of what is no longer relevant in your life. This is not loss — you are lightening your load so you can prepare to move on.

From The Astrology Room

 

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)

A dream is what makes people love life, even when it’s painful. You know how much you’ve been through the last five years, but you’ve also seen yourself come out the other side. Use this month to embrace the things you want and to separate yourself from the things you don’t. You may not realise it my friend, but you are back in control. New faces who enter your life after the 17th begin an exciting new personal chapter. Be open to new experiences and guess what, for once you don’t have to be afraid to wear your heart on your sleeve! Ring now to reveal your true calling.

 

 

 

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)

Life is really simple, but we insist on making it confusing. You’ve put pressures on close ones for changes you may not really want. Your ruling planet, the Sun helps you to come to terms with those who are no longer a part of your life and you take steps to make a new life for yourself and to find new things to enjoy. Watch out for Mars trying to cause problems in a relationship which has only just got back on track. Use the 11th to 18th to talk to those you have financial issues with. They’ll be more than ready to compromise. Ring now to find out why this is such a life changing year.

 

 

 

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)

Education is well starred and those of you who have been thinking of improving your skills and talents should be able to find the perfect courses or path of study for yourself . Don’t be afraid to use the social route to better your work opportunities. You may not realise it, but Saturn has told me that you have made some really good contacts over the last six months and it would be a waste not to use them (especially as you made such a good impression). News of pregnancies brings gossip. Ring now to hear why it’s worth making sure your phone is fully charged all month.

 

 

 

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)

Learn to let go this month Cancer. It is the secret to your happiness. Words you thought to be fact last month, turn out to be nothing more than rumours over the course of the next few weeks, so beware you don’t become a scapegoat for someone’s jealous gossip. The way you do your job comes under the spotlight and you may even find yourself having to do someone else’s work for them on a temporary basis. Try not to put off arrangements you have made, as close ones are likely to have gone to more trouble than you realise. Ring now for your love scope in full detail.

 

 

 

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)

Surround yourself with happy people this month Leo. Remember the saying, ‘you can’t help those who don’t want to help themselves.’ By showing those you care for that life should be a joyful place, you will be setting an example, not punishing them. It would seem from your stars that that last few weeks have seen you fall prey to emotional blackmail and it’s time to get back in the driving seat. Someone you have been avoiding will be seeking you out to make an apology and your stars say it’s one worth hearing. Ring now to find out who can’t stop thinking about you.

 

 

 

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)

As Oscar Wilde once said, ‘be yourself because everyone else is taken!’ You have been trying for too long now to be who others wanted you to be. If you let them get to know the real you for a while then you’d soon discover how much you is to be gained from avoiding games. Drama in the home has still left you with a bad taste in your mouth. Try to talk (not shout) about all that occurred. Addressing what’s happened is the only way you can both move on from it. Unexpected travel gives you the chance to let your hair down, so. Ring now to discover your many hidden attributes.

 

 

 

 

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)

A touch of fame in your work beckons and seems to link to work you have already done. Don’t be afraid to accept the praise that I see coming your way. (It is after all what you’ve been waiting for!)  Family don’t offer you the best support you’ve experienced, but the stars suggest in some cases it really is all they can give right now. Try to work on the fine art of compromise over the coming weeks. It is what will bring you and those you love closer together. Wear blue for luck in any business confrontations. Ring now to hear why it’s worth doing some work for free this month.

 

 

 

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)

It’s time to focus on you and to allow yourself room to grow more organically. Luckily for you, your ruling planet Mars helps you to see with ease where you have been going wrong and what you can do to make your day to day life an easier place to be. Children and family in general prove more expensive than you had hoped, but these seem to be outlays you are not going to be able to afford making. Research is key to how successful you are in your work in April. Don’t be afraid to make some calls, send some e mails to find out how much the ‘pecking order’ has changed. Call for insight.

 

 

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)

Your element of fire is making it hard for you to stay calm about something you are not sure if someone did accidentally, or on purpose. Time is what is needed to find out what really did or did not happen. Listen to your heart and ask yourself how you would feel about the person, before you had such information. It could play a key role in what you do and say next. Short trips you make to help out someone you care for are going to be appreciated more than you realise. Ring now to hear how old contacts hold the key to the new work you will be seeking by the end of this month.

 

 

 

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)

I know life has felt as if it is all hard work lately, but with the confusing line up in our skies it’s no wonder you have not been able to make sense of all that has occurred. This would be the perfect month to tie up loose ends. Also if you have not tidied up your e mails and texts lately then now would be a good time to do so. Important information can be recovered if you do. Work doesn’t go to plan but does give you the chance to work with some VERY interesting characters this month. Give me a ring to hear about the amazing potential you have to find true happiness.

 

 

 

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)

Try not to get other people to do your work for you, or you could end up with egg on your face. It would be far better for you to put some sort of chronological order to your life this month to ensure you get the most important things done. Unfinished work will come back on you so try not to start things you don’t think you can complete on time. This really does seem to be a chapter of your life where honesty is the best policy. A new addition to the family leaves you with some worries, which you’ll discover by the 24th are unfounded. Ring now to make life the amazing place it should be.

 

 

 

 

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)

To be happy you need to first let go of everything you think life is supposed to look like and celebrate it for everything it is. There appears to have been a little bit of the green eyed monster playing a role in your words and actions and it’s time to change this before you lose the power to play a part in what happens next. Truth is Pisces, all of the ingredients for a great life are right before you. Give me a ring now so I can give you the strength to shape life into all you desire.

Your Dark Stars Horoscopes for the Month of April

Your Dark Stars Horoscopes for the Month of April

Jane Lyle, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES(March 21st-April 20th)

Your birthday month rolls along with the Sun in Aries until 20th April, and an enthusiastic new Moon in your sign on 5th April. This is your astrological new year. So if you’re disappointed with progress so far, it’s a wonderful time for wish lists, plans, and fresh starts. Do make the most of some bouncing, sociable energy around the 15th-16th to see friends, get involved with shared projects, or channel energy into teamwork. You never know where this might lead. Yes, there are a few tricky days from 8th – 13th, but hold off on doing anything too dramatic. If someone or something is fading from your life by the time of that Libran full Moon on 19th, try not to worry too much. Keep talking to others, or communicating creatively about your thoughts and ideas – towards the end of April both Venus and Mercury revitalise your charisma, and boost your natural sense of adventure.

 

 

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)

Finding ways to finesse things is wise this month. You can have a positive effect on others if you use your wit, good taste, and love of music. This softly, softly approach eases things along until the Sun enters Taurus on 20th, when your new astrological year begins. Venus, your ruling planet, enters assertive Aries on the same day – so at this point in April you’re likely to veer towards a more stubborn or determined stance. These weeks just before your birthday are always a helpful moment to review plans, routines, hopes and dreams. This year that could be a very lively process, particularly when the Sun meets Uranus in your sign between 20th-23rd. If this is around your birthday, you’ll be surprising yourself and others this coming year. Continue to keep a close eye on your money, and do explore new ways of earning a living or making some extra cash. More opportunities are flowing your way at the start of May, so it’s worth taking the time now to mull over what makes you feel fulfilled. It may not be what you think!

 

 

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)

Feisty Mars is in Gemini all month, encouraging you and your inner twin to speak out, or take action. There’s much talk and discussion at work too, and with your ability to spot trends you could pick up on one or two winning ideas or be in just the right place at the right time for a lucky break. Multi-tasking and juggling are big themes for you this month as you pick up on whatever stalled or unravelled in March. Yet you’ll see that any delays haven’t spoiled the longer-term view, and may even have revealed hidden snags and flaws in a plan. Romantically, another full Moon in Libra highlights love and relationships for you, while the days just beforehand (15th-18th) emphasise all kinds of partnerships too. If you’re hoping for something new, this would be the time to focus on that. Or you could finally deal with some unfinished business that’s been holding you back, whether that’s in love or in your working life. Your personal astrology year begins in late May, so why not relax for now, and enjoy being in transition?

 

 

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)

Your love of history, antiques, or vintage music and movies is under beautiful planetary influences – so do indulge in some soul food this April, or try to have a day or two beside your salty element, the sea. It’s easy to be distracted by new springtime developments at work, and you may also feel as if you should be making practical changes at home too. But don’t underestimate the power of artistic and creative energy to lift you up or reveal imaginative possibilities. Why not surprise yourself for a change? This is a fertile time for all your friendships and contacts too, as your connections offer stimulating ideas or different perspectives on old conundrums. If stressful disagreements arise mid-month, prepare to play a waiting game if you possibly can. You’ll be in a position to find helpful solutions in early May, when people and partners are likely to be in a more co-operative frame of mind. Meanwhile, remember your words can have real impact this month, and keep talking, writing, and singing in the shower.

 

 

 

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)

If you’re travelling for work, love, or adventure then you’ll be pleased to learn that the planets are the wind in your sails. Even if you’re not on the move, you can explore ideas, study, or plan a trip for another time. A high-energy link between the Sun and Jupiter mid month is a wonderful time to spread your wings in some way. You’ll impress others – perhaps at an interview, on a date, or when making new friends. Later in April, both loving Venus and chatty Mercury are in Aries – firing up your imagination, or inspiring you to start a course, or some kind of regular class. April’s new Moon in Aries (5th) flags up learning as a great place for a new spring start – re-inspiring your everyday world in little ways can open up the portals! New friendship or romance grows from exploring myriad possibilities – large and small. And with eccentric Uranus now in Taurus, your less conventional impulses and ideas are the ones that are likely to spark something special.

 

 

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)

April’s lively atmosphere will brighten up your ideas, and encourage you to socialise more often. You’re thinking about what you share with others – from your most important relationships, to financial arrangements and plans. Energy planet Mars is in Gemini all month, firing up your hopes for the future and your desire to take action to manifest improvement or change. Do go at your own pace, and make time to discuss things with those you trust. There are some dreamy influences in the first two weeks that are lovely if you’re on holiday, but swampy and misleading if you’re making practical plans, investing time and cash in a project, or lending money to someone close to you. Keep an open mind, and allow yourself to be surprised by what you experience or discover over the Easter holiday weekend. You’ll find out more in early May. Meanwhile, cultivate curiosity!

 

 

 

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)

One way or another, you must be prepared to compromise and negotiate this month. Others have a lot to say, and may be stubborn or even controlling towards you at home and at work. Or someone is trying very hard to sell you something, yet your instincts are not convinced. However, with 2019’s second full Moon in Libra on 19th April, you’re reaching a peak or harvest time in one situation, and will soon see that a new phase is waiting in the wings. Venus enters Aries on 20th April, marking the start of a more co-operative time in your closest relationships and alliances that will burst into full bloom in May. If you’re concerned about your home or family situation, then you should feel more supported and understood by that time. Do be honest with yourself about what you really want, and don’t be afraid to take a chance or change your mind if you feel that’s the right thing for you to do now.

 

 

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)

It’s unlike you to fall for an impossible dream, or believe some ‘fake news’ about either the world, or a close friend. Yet there are some dubious influences around in early April that warn you not to jump on anyone’s bandwagon without using your fantastic intuition, plus some cool-headed Scorpio logic. Eventually, the truth will emerge from this phase of seductive smoke and mirrors, so why not bide your time? This is particularly true when it comes to financial commitments. Paperwork, loans, or other financial negotiations need great care. Otherwise, April’s a bewitching time for art, creativity, love and exploration. If you’ve been neglecting your wellbeing, this is also a moment when you can discover new ways to take care of yourself, get more sleep, or nourish your curious mind. Stretching away from rigid routines or beliefs makes everything more supple in your world. It’s not a waste of time, as you’ll realise around the time of the new Moon on 4th May.

 

 

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)

If you need to charm the birds from the trees, now’s the time to make your move. You have extra charisma in April, making this an excellent month for romance, job interviews, presentations, or promoting a new idea. And no need to shout too loudly, it’s better to tune into yourself and what surrounds you – making space for a spontaneous, quirky person or project will work to your advantage too. Just after the Easter break its especially important to make an effort – these days could feel quite tough, yet hold the potential for great rewards if you work hard. In fact, with Jupiter on your side this year, you can reap all manner of rewards if you just keep putting one foot in front of the other and maintain a positive attitude. Determination and openness will bring you what seems like luck, yet you will know just how much you’ve done to prepare for those blessings to arrive in your life.

 

 

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)

Do certain situations in your life seem stuck? Or are you clinging to some routines that need to be changed or refreshed? Have a think about this, and make your well being a real priority this April. Mars in Gemini favours exercise and movement, variety and discovery. So why not try something different? This theme repeats in your creative and romantic life too, with rebel planet Uranus now settling into Taurus for a shake-up of your expectations, long-held ideas, or conventional beliefs. Similar thoughts occur to you about your career choices – and April’s Libran full Moon (19th) shines on your hopes and desires. Something comes to a head then, as you spend part of your Easter weekend thinking about what you’d like to achieve – perhaps in your very personal life, or in pursuing your ambitions and goals. Both April and May are high energy months for you, so do make the most of it. Seeds sown now will develop in pleasing ways later on in the year.

 

 

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)

You’re probably aware of power ploys behind the scenes, or perhaps you simply feel a little uneasy? Certainly, with your revolutionary ruler, Uranus, newly in Taurus you sense things stirring in your own subconscious, and in the world around you. If you do feel stuck or stale, how about rethinking things? You may have some serious financial matters to deal with, but wise Aquarians will make sure they have time to play too. You’ll see things differently once you step off your treadmill. And towards the end of April, things really begin to flow for you. It’s a helpful moment to impress others, or meet up with people. You can attract positive attention, success, or new friendship and romance at this time. Feed yourself and your lively mind by reading, travelling, or signing up for a course. Between now and June is a progressive phase, as wider horizons open out for you. Take it easy, you’re on your way.

 

 

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)

You’re a dreamy romantic, sometimes. You’re also a visionary idealist, and often have an uncanny knack of tuning into trends, and the feelings of others. Now, with abundant Jupiter in Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces, you have a chance to bring your abilities together and surf those cosmic waves. Your challenge is to stay grounded, and search for practical outlets for all this wild and juicy inspiration. Otherwise, your head will remain in the clouds and nothing much will be achieved. So try not to feel resentful if family members or close friends ask questions or argue with you about your plans this month. They may have a point, and it could help you clarify what you want. Plus, you could invite them to help you out. You’re very charming this April, so keep communicating and you’ll work a little spring magic for yourself. More information and possibilities await you in May.

YOU WON’T GET ANOTHER CHANCE TO CHANNEL APRIL’S ENERGY

YOU WON’T GET ANOTHER CHANCE TO CHANNEL APRIL’S ENERGY

Spring has sprung and the energy, at first, is full speed ahead—until it slows as multiple transpersonal planets begin retrogrades this month. Retrogrades are often misunderstood by the general public. Contrary to popular belief, they don’t necessarily bring out the worst in the planet that appears to be in retrograde motion; in fact, the opposite can be true! Jupiter’s impending retrograde may emphasize exciting travel opportunities, for example. Mostly, retrogrades provide us with an opportunity for review as they cross over the same degrees of the zodiac within a few days, weeks, or months’ time. One thing we should pay attention to as April begins is the fact that with all planets direct for the last time in a good long while, we won’t get a second chance at this energy. Ambition and excitement are high as Mercury kicks off April by going direct, clarifying our intentions. However, Mercury is still in their shadow, so don’t let an outsized imagination get the best of you. If you keep things humble yet goal-oriented, your intentions may well bear fruit.

On April 5, we have a giddy new moon in Aries—an ideal time for getting any springtime projects off the ground. This first new moon of spring is full of possibility and promise, a beautiful day for planting seeds, both literally and metaphorically. It is a great time for dreaming about big futures.

The dreamy vibe continues on April 9, when Venus, exalted in Pisces, meets Neptune for a conjunction at 17 degrees. This can be a day of heightened spirituality, artistry, or romance—but in matters of the heart be mindful of the Neptunian pitfall of illusion. Remember that Mercury is still in Pisces, too, muddying cogent thinking and communication. Keep your wits about you and don’t make any excuses for others. Especially with Jupiter slowing down to go retrograde on April 10, we need to pay extra close attention to what brings us delight, ease, and prosperity.

April 17 Mercury enters Aries and things are LIT UP. After weeks upon seemingly unending weeks in Pisces, Mercury in Aries feels like a phoenix risen from the ashes. Communications will instantly rocket forward. Expect significant shifts where negotiations, dialogues or plans may have become stuck or sludgy.

The full moon in Libra on April 19 brings our attention to our bonds and connections, our commitments and loyalties. Every calendar year, there are thirteen total full moons, which means two full moons in the same sign—and this year, we get two full moons in Libra. You can expect issues coming up today to be connected to whatever was up for you around March’s equinox full moon, but you may also begin to recognize 2019 as a catalyst for relational growth. With the eclipses taking place on the Cancer-Capricorn axis, we’re now well into examining the balance between work/the public and home/comfort—and there’s nothing Libra loves more than balance.

April 20 is the biggest day of the astrological month, with the sun entering Taurus and Venus entering Aries. We will suddenly start to realize just how impactful our actions are. We may feel suddenly and excitingly—or intimidatingly—in our power. The veil of vagueness brought on by March’s Piscean meanderings has been fully lifted, and we can perceive with clarity what it is we want and exactly what we may need to do to get it. Expect a day of profound connection with the physical world.

(Fun astrological discovery! On Easter Sunday—and throughout most of April)—Neptune is at 17 degrees Pisces. The Sabian Symbol for 17 degrees Pisces? An Easter parade. As astrologer Antero Alli says, “I don’t use astrology because I believe in it—I use it because it works.”)

April 22 brings a certain air of rebellion as the sun conjuncts Uranus at 2 degrees Taurus. Political unrest is significant. Radical shifts in how we perceive our surroundings, our bodies, and our finances are possible, if not highly likely. And just in time, on April 24, Pluto turns retrograde, leading us through a confrontation of our collective shadow that lasts clear into October.

Finally, on April 27, Mars squares Neptune two days before Saturn turns retrograde. The energy here may feel choppy and erratic, perhaps even frightening. At the very least, it runs the risk of being overstimulating. We are especially self-conscious at this time, aware of our roles and patterns. Drink enough water, get enough rest, don’t overcommit, and listen to your body.

YOUR DAILY COSMIC CALENDAR FOR APRIL 2, 2019

COSMIC CALENDAR

If you read yesterday’s calendar entry, you should already be prepared for today’s main sky configuration—Mercury and Neptune uniting at 18 degrees of Pisces at 2:37 a.m. and exceedingly strong in the couple of hours before and after. Write down or record visions of the Great Beyond. Experiment with a video camera. Find your niche in one of the fine or graphic arts. You can also continue with these kinds of imaginative explorations later on when the moon in Pisces makes its monthly unions with Neptune (6:26 p.m.) and Mercury (6:59 p.m.).

While Venus provides a second day of creating potentially comforting love vibes during a parallel with the moon (3:41 p.m.), shortly after this morning’s Mercury-Neptune rapport Venus and distant Pluto make a frictional, 45-degree contact (4:48 a.m.). Keep primary partnerships on an even keel by not letting emotional tensions get out of hand.

[Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]
