Astro-News April 16-Earth Day, plant a tree for free

Astrological Updates April 16-22nd Earth Day! 

New Moon in Aries. Saturn finally goes Direct April 19th! Lots of Trines! 

April 16th Moon in Aries- Fiery, on the Move, time to seed

Moon Conjunct Mercury-blabbedy, blab, blah, fiery tongues, too much babble

Moon trine Saturn and Jupiter-it doesn’t get any better than this folks

Moon sextile Neptune-just like it sounds, with your dreams, a bottle of wine, your dream lover, your ideal situation. 

The Moon may be in Aries, new beginnings- but we are headed into the last phase of the Moon as we go to New Moon so things are stalled temporarily and Aries temperaments ain’t famous for being patient, so just try to be patient for a few days longer. 

Tuesday April 17th It’s New MOON at 7:36 am. EDT

It’s a fiery time. You’re chomping at the bit to launch new projects, but this New Moon occurs at 28 degrees of Aries, near the end of the Arian cycle, a bit of a conundrum in more ways than one. Finish planting the seeds you sowed at the Spring Equinox. 

This New Moon is being trined by Pluto so it’s easy to see into the depths of this dark time. The New Moon calls us into the Void at the Galactic Centre. Big things are germinating. Don’t avoid the void. Glean new insights now.

This new moon is a dark mirror of obsidian where we can gaze at our own shadows, find out where we come from and what internal and external shadows are blocking new growth.  Pluto is making his final and deepest digs right now in Sagittarius, exposing religious hypocrisy, bad educational policies and laws, strip mining our ecological wastefulness, and exposing the deeply hidden secrets about our true spiritual wealth, death and rebirth and the nature of reality, quantum physics and our power. Reflect on what your creative passions are. Things may appear confusing. Mercury is in Aries and wants to understand and communicate spontaneously, independently, defensively, as a warrior.  Defensiveness does not allow for new beginnings. Let go of your need to control with your mind.

Chiron is in opposition to Saturn, so our deepest wounds are hurting palpably, physically, we feel it in our bodies, we see it in the news, in the structures, the laws, the obstacles, the limitations, our leaders, the government, the very fabric of our realities.

Neptune is sitting 6 degrees away from Chiron opposite Saturn, brining infinite hope, inspiration, vision, meditations, compassion, peace struggles, drama, illusions, delusions, our addictions and trouble with water and oil to the surface so that we may heal them if we so choose. 

MOON Enters Taurus April 17th at 12:11 pm EDT 

If things seem to be taking forever to manifest and you are weary of carrying that leaden weight around for a moment longer it’s because Saturn ruler of the material world is just about stopped in the skies right now so these days will feel the heaviest,leaden. Those longish term plans since last Dec. 5, 2006 when Saturn turned retrograde that you’ve been patiently and persistently working on with Capricornian discipline are about to start growing and building, and supported now by that Taurean obstinacy and let’s not forget sensual Venus ruled Moonscape. 

Wed. April 18th An aspect  Free day! And they say that nothings free anymore. 

April 19th Saturn turns Direct Direct  at 5:24 pm EDT

Hooray! Let’s get real and down to work.  It’ll be easier to get your taxes done now. Saturn is the Mother Principle in the Kabbalah. I know we think about Saturn as Father Time but that is just a patriarchal Saturnian gloss Of course we’re all here as spirits and souls in physical bodies, or robes, in the 3D realm or you wouldn’t be experiencing any of this. And we all came into the world from a woman’s body since the beginning of Time. Thus Saturn is the Feminine, the real world, physical matter. Matter and the word Mater, Mother are one and the same. Ain’t etymology great? Edgar Cayce that famous clairvoyant called Saturn the planet of change, because Saturn correspond to structures ,buildings, defenses, physical bodies which eventually crumble, fall and change, and change is the nature of reality.

Saturn transits are hard, limiting, obstacles abound, time drags, we’re working hard to build, but progress is painfully slow. Saturn turning direct let’s us out of the gates. It’s time to take the big step forwards depending though on the hard work sweat and persistence that we put in during these last 5 + months. Saturn turned Retro at 25 degrees of Leo, Saturn goes Direct at 18 of Leo and arrives at 25 Leo again on July 25th.

Baby Boomers Take Note:

People born between 1946-1955 have their Natal Pluto’s in Leo around these degrees  covered by Saturn’s Rx period, and these people Baby Boomers all, some in their 60’s a time ruled by Saturn, are being strongly pushed to reclaim their authentic power as Leaders, as creative self-expressionists, as Pluto esoterically rules the Soul. The 5th house natural position of Leo rules the Heart, and love given to others. Carl Jung said that Love and Power were mutually exclusive. But showing and giving love is the biggest power we have.

Divine Trine April 19

And it’s more good news as the Sun exactly trines Pluto as well this day. This is a Divine Trine, ease of connection of Light and Dark, the Source and Power, Consciousness and the Soul, Life and Death, exposure and secrets. The Sun trines Pluto at the Galactic Centre throwing our awareness into the Black Hole at the Centre of the Galaxy.  The Black Hole draws all light and matter into itself inexhorably. This symbolizes our chance to Light the Way into the core, the depths of the Void. The Sun is the Source of Life and Light to us, Pluto is darkness, depths, the Soul. We see ourselves now and know our true Selves as the Light, as the Power of Light and Dark, know ourselves and the structure of Reality {Saturn} as the Source within and without.  The Sun rules the sign of Leo and we all have a Leo house ruling our hearts in our natal charts.

April 21

Mercury in Aries trines Saturn at 3:09 am EDT

Very logical aspect for straight talk and walking that talk into reality. Put your money where your mouth is.

Moon opposite Pluto at 11:52 am

This one is always difficult. Did you know that Pluto rotates in the opposite direction to most of the other planets. This is a time of emotional upheavals and often co-incides with disasters. But there is a blessing as well as,

Mercury Jupiter Saturn Trine unfold throughout this day


Mercury in Aries Trines Saturn in Leo Trines Jupiter in Sag.


This one is good for that proverbial cosmic kick in the butt.  This enlivens and animates spirits, everyone feels good, talks fast, is big hearted, generous, adventurous, optimistic,Pursues their own sense of truth, and acts like kings, gives from their hearts, pursues higher aims and goals. Communications should be heady. The down side is, too truthful?- watch that infamous hoof in mouth disease of  Sagittarius, don’t sit too high on your horse. 


Emotional tone softens, breathe a sigh, feed yourself well, nourish others, go see your Mom, recuperate, bake an apple pie, take a bath or go for a swim, feel homey, feelings will be very sensitive, tender, security conscious.  As for that Fiery trine in effect today, be aware of Cancerian ultra-sensitive side or else the armour will not come down. Appeal to nurture the truth {Jupiter in Sag.} from your heart {Saturn in Leo} and just do it {Mercury in Aries, As Sun’s Taurean  beams lead us to Earth Day tomorrow, definitely contribute to greening the environment, if it’s warm enough plant some seeds and flowers, definitely get your hands into the earth. With all the talk about ecology, global warming, this is the time to do something about it. Write letters to the government urging your support, Jupiter in Sagittarius is expanding our knowledge about power, education, truth, our interdependence with each other on the planet-ie: China; expanding laws. 

April 22 EARTH DAY 

This Green Day. Honour the Earth Our Mother! How appropriate that Moon is in Cancer {Mom} and the Sun is in Taurus the 1st Earth Sign.

Moon Trines Mars in Pisces : so be compassionate as a spiritual warrior for the Earth, defend her, protect her, bless her, definitely hug trees today.

Moon trines Uranus at 8:14 pm Expect happy unexpected gifts from spirit.

Mercury sextiles Neptune at 9:12 PDT

Putting our talk and our dreams into one.

Venus squares Mars, Gemini to Pisces at 10:30 PM PDT

This is hot, difficult, Venus wants an easy way out, and Mars will do anything to keep her around.  Ambiguous values rub the wrong way into old secrets and insecurities. Too much idle chatter dissipates the desire to let compassion flow.
