Releasing the Past in Pisces – April 3-10 2019

The stellium in Pisces brings conscious or unconscious efforts to fruition. You reap what you sow. The transits the planets Venus, Mercury and Neptune as Mercury reaches the partile in the conjunction aspect with Neptune. Secret alliances, agreement and hidden contracts are exposed under this aspect.  In its final days of the lunar cycle, as the Moon is approaching the Sun, the results of the cycle and of the greater cycles of the year and the Saturn- Pluto cycle of 30 years become evident. The New Moon on the 5th of April (evening of the 4th in the US) is the opening of a spring renewal. Cleansing of the material, physical, mental and psychic spheres helps to release the past and start anew.  

Summary of Major Aspects of the Week

Wednesday April 3rd – The close conjunction of Mercury and Neptune in Pisces as well as the conjunction of Pluto with Ketu, seem to culminate in upheavals that are horrific in nature. Legislative impasses and political reversals are with Neptune and Pluto activated as we look for a respite. The depth of psychosis should not be denied. The Moon’s transit of MercuryNeptune conjunction (0 deg combining) aspect early today could bring a change of attitude and even a shift in political discourse.  The root of the matters need to be addressed and action taken to remedy situations and reduce incidents of violence.  While the polar opposite of Pisces is Virgo, Pisces seeks to eliminate while Virgo repairs. With love and acceptance the extremes can merge and overcome the negativity. The Moon in a square aspect (90 deg, harsh) to Jupiter in Sag today leads the way with emotional social gatherings.  

New Moon in Aries
April 4-5 2019

Thursday April 4th – The Moon ingress to Aries happens early today as direct actions are taken, and with a sextile aspect (60 deg, friendly) to Mars, goals become well defined as seeds for the new lunar cycle are prepared for future growth. The voice of wisdom in each of us evolves through time and experience. Chiron forms a sextile aspect to Mars, as the Moon transits Chiron, prompting soul-searching. This is a time when we need the voice of guidance and experience that leads us from the swamp. While Moon sextile to Mars could lead to instinctive and rash actions, Chiron holds the line for those with an ear to hear.

Friday April 5th – The New Moon at 15 degrees Aries calls out powerful initiatives for reform.  As the Moon is in a semi-sextile (30 deg, mild) aspect to Neptune and Mercury, the lessons of the past spur us on. The Sun and Moon are in a trine aspect 9120 deg, flowing) to Ceres in Sagittarius, as care for environment and the viability of the planet for future generations becomes a central issue for government planning. Then the Moon progresses to the square aspect (90 deg, harsh) with Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn, the tests for legitimacy and viability are applied. With legal barriers (Saturn) as well as electability score (Pluto) the fate of candidates may be sealed at this time. Pluto in a semi-sextile aspect to Pluto as supporters select according to social appeal.

Saturday April 6th – With Mars in Gemini, adaptability is the key to successful outcomes. Remaining sober while accepting challenges that require right actions, one may walk in the middle path. Mercury in Pisces and in a sextile aspect (60 deg, friendly) to Saturn in Capricorn helps to define the reversals that are looming.  The Moon egress from Aries into Taurus by mid-day, as good intentions may encounter reversals with Uranus standing in the doorway of Taurus the Bull. Harnessing that energy takes right actions. Progress to evolutionary goals can be accomplished with the Moon in Taurus sextile aspect to Mars.  

Sunday April 7th – The Moon in Taurus in a sextile aspect (60 deg, friendly) to Venus in Pisces could be cause for close relationships and celebrations. Difficulties can be resolved now. As the Moon transits Neptune a few hours later, however, caution should be taken not to overdo the excitement, as relationships could dissolve as a consequence. Momentary victories are eliminated. Instability resumes. The sober man/woman succeeds in the debate with Mercury sextile aspect to Saturn.  The Sun in Aries is in a semi-sextile aspect (30 deg, mild) to Neptune impacting the ability if sobriety is not maintained.  The Moon trine aspect (120 deg, flowing) to Saturn and sextile to Mercury promotes success for right-minded actions. Fake news can be exposed as are insufficient preparations.

Monday April 8th – The Moon in Taurus proceeds to the quincunx aspect (150 deg, complex) to Jupiter stationary and preparing to retrograde in Sagittarius. This could lead to a creative manifestation or a bust. A degree of caution, with the Sun in a square aspect (90 deg, harsh) to Saturn, helps to empower a favorable reception. As the Moon ingress to Gemini occurs by mid-day, with aspects to both Chiron and Uranus, adapting to the demands of the day, with detailed and diverse responses, helps to maintain your agenda.

Tuesday April 9thVenus supersedes Neptune in Pisces today, as the level of corruption in government is weighed. Mercury, the dispositor of Mars and the Moon could motivate political success or failure. The Moon transits Mars in Gemini, for a shift in messaging. Ceres in Sagittarius turns retrograde and also with an opposition aspect to the Moon, including an appeal to the younger generation. As Jupiter is also ready to turn retrograde, with the Moon in opposition (180 deg tense) aspect in Gemini to Jupiter, and Mercury in Pisces at the focal point (square aspect to both Moon and Jupiter), the instinct of the population is measured. As Neptune is the dispositor of Mercury and in its sign of rulership,  Pisces, the risk of disillusionment is strong. Accepting the will of the majority impacts leadership (Sun square aspect to Saturn).

Have a successful week!
