April Femastrology 2019
By Astrologer and Psychic, Victoria Bearden
April gets off to a great start with Mercury Direct! The planet of communication was retrograde in Pisces for most of March, bringing many confusing twists and turns into our lives, and into the headlines. It will be nice to put all the delays and complications behind us as we move forward into the Spring cycle. You might still find yourself doing a little “clean-up” on some of the issues that went sideways in March, but it should be easier. Take advantage of the change and dive in to your “to do” lists early in the month.
Jupiter in Sagittarius goes retrograde on April 10, 2019. The planet of expansion and growth will be “chillin’ out” for the next four months, bringing in a chance to review some of the many changes that have rolled out this year. Sagittarius is linked to law, truth, justice, religion, philosophy, and the quest for freedom. These themes will be a powerful force in 2019. It is also related to the need for positive interactions with foreign people and countries. During Jupiter’s retrograde period we will get some clarity regarding problematic legal, moral, and cultural issues. Regardless of retrograde or direct, Jupiter in its home sign of Sagittarius remains a benefit for everyone during the months to come.
Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn are only a few degrees apart, highlighting many of our world’s problem areas, as we humans struggle to evolve. We will continue to witness and must confront the ways society and governments have abused authority and failed to protect their most vulnerable members. When outer planets like Saturn and Pluto line up we get a much clearer view of the pros and cons of our lives, both individually and collectively. And the “cure” for the problems we see will come from embracing the positive traits of Capricorn, such as determination, motivation, hard work, responsibility, discipline, prudence, and honesty.
With Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn during 2019, it’s time to pay the piper. We can’t wiggle out of the reality we have created anymore. So, we need to roll up our selves and fix what has been broken so the road to progress will be cleared. Both Saturn and Pluto will go into their retrograde cycles at the end of the month, giving us even more insight about the events of the past 6 months. Millennials around the age of 26 and 27 are getting a major spiritual “download” this year, as they were born under a planetary alignment in the same degrees of Capricorn back in the early 90’s! I hope they have many important realizations to share with the reset of us.
There’s a New Moon at 15° Aries on April 5, 2019, so get ready to set intentions for new projects and activities. New Moons are a cosmic “reset” of the energy that affects us here on earth. Each month with get a moment to collect our selves and gather up our inner resources in preparation for what lies ahead. Aries is the warrior, ready to spring into action to conquer challenges and achieve goals. Use the energy of the Aries New Moon to find your courage, face your fears, and bring action to your thoughts and ideas. Fire sign Aries represents the positive side of ego and individuality. Affirmations about self-esteem and self-image can be very potent at this time.
There’s a Full Moon at 29° Libra on April 19, 2019. This is the second Full Moon in Libra this year, as the Full Moon on March 20, 2019 was also in the sign of the Scales of Justice. Having a Full Moon at the final or “critical” degree of any sign is a symbol of an important tipping point and turn of events. The Aries/Libra polarity has to do with blending our individual needs with our needs for compromise and relationship. Since the Sun in late Aries will be close to revolutionary Uranus, there will be a big energy build up and subsequent release with this Full Moon, so get ready! Keep yourself grounded and enjoy the ride. There is always strong magic in the air during the Full Moon, so get those intentions and affirmations ready to roll.
The Sun enters Earth Sign Taurus on April 20, 2019, the day before Easter. The Sun will be in alignment with Uranus over Easter weekend, so expect some surprises and revelations.
Opportunity Days: April 6, 7, 8, 12, 14, 19, 22, 26, and 27
