Happy April Everyone,

I hope Spring has sprung in your part of the world. It’s still a bit chilly here in beautiful Colorado but the flowers are starting to poke their pretty heads out for all to see. If you have been watching the news, you know it’s getting pretty crazy out there. Let’s take a look at the planets and their influence for this month.

Of the outer planets, we have Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto all going retrograde this month. Time to re-assess! Jupiter and Pluto continue to square each other, but will have to re-assess what action to pursue. This combination is about the economy, leadership, large projects, and the law. I expect we will see the need to backtrack on our own projects during this time and globally I would expect that the powers that be will be doing quite a bit of reassessing as well. The name of this transit is “back to the drawing board!” Saturn is also in a hard aspect to Jupiter this month putting a further spot light on government officials, politicians and more personal for individuals, issues with relatives.

Neptune is doing a sort of solo this month where the outer planets are concerned but will aspect Venus mid month just as Venus goes direct. March gave her time to re-think her relationships and what is most valuable to where our relationships are concerned and now mid-month we should be able to see clearer, what relationships are valuable and what relationships are real and long lasting. Saturn has a positive role in making these determinations. Some of you will have to let go of a relationship, personal or business that has not been built on realty. It’s okay to let go.

Uranus and Mars have a quick encounter in the next few days, so watch your driving folks and your temper! Used wisely, you can get a lot done in a short time but think it through first before you go into action.

While Venus is retrograde the first half of the month, she goes direct on the 15th at 27 Pisces, squaring Saturn in Sagittarius. This is the ultimate in looking at our relationships to see what is valid and healthy and what needs to finished. If you are being aspect-ed with this you will probably find yourself re-assessing a relationship and if so, what needs to be re-structured to work for you or if it’s time to decide it’s time to let go of the relationship. It is the ultimate reality check on all relationships, including personal and professional.

Mercury goes retrograde this month on the 9th at 4 Taurus, going direct at 24 Aries on May 3rd. The last 10 days of the month it will be aspecting Saturn in a trine which gives us the opportunity to catch up on business correspondence and some possible long delayed business trips. If you have unfinished projects, take this energy to step back and clean up what has been neglected from the past. Send those emails, and make those calls!

The Full Moon occurs on 4/11 at 21.5 Aries, aspecting both Jupiter and Uranus. This is a good time to finish the project you have been involved in and suggests great success in the outcome. Job well done!

The New Moon occurs on the 4/26 at 6 Taurus with a wide aspect to Jupiter. This facilitates the energy to pick up where you left off on unfinished business of any sort so pick it up and run with it.

That’s it for this month. Enjoy the Spring and be good to each other.
