The Moon in Pisces is sextile to Mercury and sextile aspect to Pluto, as the transit over the stellium planets in Pisces reaches a conclusion on Wednesday. All planets are within this trine segment of the ecliptic. The New Moon on Friday is a partial solar eclipse. A review of the situation, be it in Ukraine or elsewhere, could mean a groundbreaking event, that results in a rather unexpected reversal. Pluto changes apparent motion, tuning retrograde. The events have been the undercurrent for several weeks. Now the direction becomes more obvious. Alliances could be made or broken at this time. Practical decisions (earth sign Taurus) designed to be money saving could alter the course of the future. Venus and Jupiter in Pisces are partile conjunction at the New Moon. This is a signal that humanitarian efforts are initiated. The conjunction is square aspect to V. Putin’s natal Mars in Sagittarius. He may be forced to enact the humanitarian gesture, and it may be only a gesture. His natal Venus is in opposition aspect to the New Moon, as he is under pressure to reform, as transiting Mars is trine aspect to his natal Venus, he may then send attacks at the same time as he announced the humanitarian corridor. The Moon’s transit of Uranus in Taurus follows on May 1st, reversing reversals. Venus’ ingress to Aries occurs on Monday May 2nd, with a more tangible expression of care. The Sun/Uranus conjunction on Wednesday the 4th of May is another signal of a dramatic change underway. This reversal on the economic front has profound effects.

Venus makes a conjunction aspect with Neptune in Pisces, a sensitive position, with results that are sometimes perverted. On the positive side, you could find redeeming characteristics in your partner, or in yourself! Also, it’s a good time to refine your intuitive instincts, increase empathy and give generously to charity. Saturn is in an applying semi-sextile aspect to Venus and Neptune, helping to refine or particularize instinctive awareness, with self-discovery.
Thursday April 28th — The Moon in Aries makes a semi–sextile aspect to Mars, its depositor, in Pisces. Because Mars is the ruler of Aries, the semi-sextile contact is as strong as a conjunction aspect, although passing in a short time, invigorates the Moon with a stronger incentive for goal achievement. Mercury and Pluto remain in a tight (strong) trine aspect for the day, with Jupiter sextile aspect to both Mercury and Pluto, bringing the dialogue into a stronger focus. Peace talks between Russia and Ukraine could become more urgent. There is a more serious effort on the part of the participants to bring a closure to the war. The Moon transits Chiron in Aries, adding some deeper efforts to clarify positions and possible outcomes.
Friday April 29th — The Moon in Aries is in a sextile aspect to Saturn in Aquarius early today, afternoon in Europe and the Middle-East, Russia and Ukraine, and semi-sextile aspect to Neptune, as the contradictory forces are conflicting and relating in the semi-sextile aspect. Saturn may limit the expression of expansion, although forcefully, as the conflict continues, as Venus approaches the conjunction aspect with Jupiter in Pisces. The Sun in Taurus approaches the sextile aspect with Mars in Pisces, as the destruction of a nation fuels a hope for renewal. Mercury ingress to Gemini brings more active discussion of possible solutions, even as Mercury leads the way for diplomatic progress.
Saturday April 30th — The New Moon in Pisces becomes partile late in the day, close to midnight in Europe, Ukraine and Russia, while late in the afternoon in the US. This could coincide with a dramatic change in the conflict as it affects the world, the economy, peace and livelihoods, as well as human existence in a war-torn nation. The two planets associated with compatible relations, Venus and Jupiter, are combined in the conjunction aspect in Pisces, with a maximum sense of compassion, hope and good fortune implied, at the New Moon, a partial solar eclipse, indicates a reversal in fortunes.

Sunday May 1st — The Moon in Taurus makes a conjunction aspect with Uranus, early today, pre-dawn in the US. There is an awakening associated with this conjunction that carries the effect of the New Moon eclipse, as events reverberate and escalate. Venus’ sextile aspect to Pluto could have a taming effect, although deception is another possibility. The Moon in a conjunction aspect with Rahu in Taurus builds on successes, although the sextile aspect to Neptune and square aspect to Saturn could then be a reality test. Ambitions to control the world’s information platform or increased land or virtual property must have a downside.
Monday May 2nd — The Moon in Taurus is trine aspect to Pluto retro in Capricorn early today, then makes the ingress to Gemini, and a conjunction aspect with Mercury.
