SPRING IS HERE… APRIL 2020
“April is a promise that May is bound to keep.” – Hal Borland
As Springtime on the planet signals a time of rebirth, new life bursting from old roots, and the sweet wonder of nature following its own orderly course, so too does springtime in the heavens as it offers the promises of new insights, fresh starts and the blessed comfort in observing the orderliness of change. We are coming into a magical time of the year, it’s spring. Many changes have occurred within the last few months, globally, as well as within the confines of our own back yard. Our old ways of thought are giving birth to something totally brand new. We are evolving into a new ways of being a part of this world that we are now living. It’s about survival and being the best we can be.
FULL MOON IN LIBRA APRIL 7 – AGREE TO DISAGREE
A Full Moon occurs when the Sun and Moon are in opposition to each other, causing a tug-pull affect as energies are in conflict. The Energy of the fierce Sun in Aries, ruled by Mars, the planet of action, versus the influence of the Moon in Libra, ruled by Venus, the planet of pleasure and play. Libra, the sign that seeks partnership, balance and mutuality, is hosting the Full Moon opposite the Sun independent. The struggle between compromise based on the Libra Moon versus the urge and desire fore freedom and personal space. For the next few days, even those Aries who manage to come across as pleasant Venusian Libras will find it challenging to sit still while the heat is turned up inside. Relational interactions will be challenging. Spring fever could bring out some definite urges to push for something physical or sexual on a personal level…..and things could get quite aggressive at work or in social settings.
Libra likes to please, craving balance, while Aries likes to take charge,get it done and fight to the end until their goal is accomplished. The outer reflection of who we are, versus the inner reflection of what we feel. During this months Full Moon, you ask yourself the question: Do you see yourself in harmony with your partner? Do you avoid conflict at all costs? Or do you prefer to fight and create change as only you see fit? The duality of these two fierce influences take place causing this yin/yang exchange.
NEW MOON IN TAURUS APRIL 21 – Astrologically speaking, a New Moon on in the Earthy, Venus-ruled sign of Taurus signifies newness. Specifically starting a new project, a new health routine, or something that will spark a shift in how we live. In addition, it is a good time to finish up details of unresolved matters, that have been left untouched. The New Moon in Taurus is one of my favorite lunations, because Taurus as an earth sign energizes our senses, enriches our soul, encompassing the wonderful green scent of spring and all of its beauty. The New Moon in Earthy, Venusian Taurus brings us back to reality, pulling us back into our bodies. It helps to create a footing as we begin better habits. This particular New Moon in sync with the transiting Sun, at odds with Uranus and Saturn, may help in allowing us a better platform in which to work with. It provides an opportunity to evaluate our physical reality, making this lunation the perfect time to see if we are living in reality, or just passing time. As idealism goes, it is standing in the way? Are we cutting off our nose to spite our face? Keep in mind that compromise is not a dirty word.
