ARIES [Mar 21 - Apr 19]

Enough chill in the air already, your fire is officially lit. The Sun has been working extra hard in your sign in recent weeks to clear life’s path and get things moving again, but with Mercury free from its shadow and entering Aries as of Tuesday, April 16, life is sure to feel like a brand new ball game. A Full Moon in Libra occurs on Friday, April 19, so beware of passions escalating in your relationship arena. Your ruler Mars is also in Gemini, and with Mercury, the ruler for Gemini, now in Aries, the emotional intensity will may manifest in the form of a verbal crossfire. However, when two planets are in the signs of each other’s rulership, referred to as a mutual reception, this allows for a more productive integration and cultivation of the energy. You will find this to be especially true after the Moon peaks and begins to wane. Loving Venus enters your sign on Saturday, April 20, the same day the Sun leave Aries and enters Taurus, helping to ground you in a direction and a plan.

Verbalize what you want and need, and someone with power and pull will go to bat on your behalf!

TAURUS [Apr 20 - May 21]

Get ready to change gears Taurus. The Moon is waxing and will become Full in Libra on Friday, April 19, in your house of health and improvements. Your ruler Venus, which also rules the sign of Libra, slips into turbocharged Aries the following day to give you ample energy and drive to go the distance. With motion-minded Mars in Gemini in your house of self-reliance, you may be feeling ‘on your own’, but with Mercury, the ruler for Gemini, also in Aries, you will be splurging on the feeling of independence. It will be a high on energy and loaded with action kind of weekend but you will be feeling nourished by the creative juices of the Sun as it merges with Uranus in your sign this Sunday, April 21, and Monday, April 22. You are working hard but also remarkably smart, while keeping the dream clearly in sight. Control what you can and release the rest for there are plenty of angelic beings hovering who are happy to pick up the slack. Energizing the ideal is all part of the deal. Keep your sights high and your feet on the ground.

All will progressively and positively play out!

GEMINI [May 22 - Jun 21]

Day by day you will be feeling more like your true self again. You may have felt to be drowning in uncertainty and irrational emotion in recent weeks, but your ruler Mercury has cleared his shadow from the retrograde and just entered fired-up Aries on Tuesday, April 16. Some relationships may also be getting steamy with a Full Moon in fellow air sign Libra brewing and completing itself on Friday, April 19. This could increase the passion between you two for better or for worse, depending on the health of the foundation of your connection. While life may feel to be swinging to extremes, this lunar balancing ball may very well be the tuning fork you need to work your way back into a state of ‘zen’ again. Loving Venus, the ruler for Libra, also enters Aries on Saturday, April 20, energizing a warrior spirit within you whether it occurs emotionally, physically or spiritually speaking. Mars, the planet of action, is in your sign as well, which adds fire to the desires emerging from your deepest instinctual roots.

Focus on the ultimate outcome and you will be well on your way to hitting your mark!

CANCER [Jun 22 - Jul 22]

Family first. You will be reminded of this well in the coming few days with a Full Moon in Libra in the wee hours of the morning in the west on Friday, April 19, bringing an emotional charge and attention to your house of home and family. Plenty of energy is calling you out of the home currently, or else deep along your career path with Mercury now in Aries, and loving Venus, the ruler for this lunar boom entering Aries as well on Saturday, April 20. Life is a balancing act and you will be doing what you can to manage what you must. The squeaky wheel however, will get the grease. With Mars in Gemini in your house of the unseen world, it speaks to your need to retreat into a space where you can find refuge and replenish your own vital feeling resources. Mercury, the ruler for Gemini, will progressively sync up to Mars on the last day of this month revealing an answer to an ongoing mystery or an answer to your heavenly call. For now, be sure to dedicate equal amounts of your time and energy where it’s needed, including time to return to your depths.

An empowered Soul will emerge if you make it a priority to ‘go there’!

LEO [Jul 23 - Aug 22]

Full Moon’s can be experienced as an emotional sling shot, especially if feelings have been repressed over time and there is mounting pressure to release them. A Full Moon in Libra in your house of communication early on Friday, April 19, triggers the need to speak your piece as well as your peace. You will be feeling plenty of fire and spice surfacing on the subject as Mercury just entered fellow fire sign Aries and loving Venus, the ruler of this Full Moon in Libra, enters Aries on Saturday, April 20. Action Mars is in Gemini in your house of breakthroughs and is energizing a welcomed courage to access a new approach to a tired old story with Pluto, Saturn and the transiting South Node all merged in Capricorn in your house of improvements. It may be too that what needs to change are the stories or thoughts that you are telling yourself surrounding what is possible and what isn’t.

Change your mindset and you could radically alter the whole enchilada, brilliantly for the better!

VIRGO [Aug 23 - Sep 22]

The energy swing is sure to feel like night and day. It’s a bit like working around the clock to reach a deadline for work or school and then being given a reprieve in the form of a weekend off. With some freedom and time on your hands, you don’t know what to do first. In fact, it can take some time to decompress after being on that insane treadmill. Your ruler Mercury is finally free of its retrograde shadow in Pisces and officially completed its journey all the way around the zodiac. Mercury entered Aries, the sign of new beginnings on Tuesday, April 16, injecting you with a fresh burst of energy. A Full Moon in Libra occurs as well early on Friday, April 19, which may have you not really knowing how to best direct your energy. It is encouraging you to set work aside and to take some time out to spend with loved ones. Loving Venus joins Mercury and enters Aries the following day to light a fire inside of your Soul, illuminating those things that reveal more of your essence. Forget the mind and the list of worries. This week you are taking a deeper dive and finding far more meaning there than you ever could perched on the surface.

Adios head, hello heart, body and Soul!

LIBRA [Sep 23 - Oct 23]

I recently spoke to a Libran friend who finally broke down and asked for help. She is a strong woman and a queen manifester in the world but feeling as if she has been emotionally dragged through the mud, admitting “I have been crying every day for weeks and I don’t know why.” Well for starters Libra, powerful Pluto, hard knock Saturn, and the South Node, the symbol for the past, are all merged in Capricorn. This all occurring in your house of home and the emotional body. In a nutshell, it does not matter how much you may be grateful for, the emotional void is going to take precedence. This can occur because the kids are growing up and leaving the nest, your parents are aging and in need of your help and care, or you are simply wrestling with how fleeting time feels and you are missing ‘what once was’. Perhaps you are wondering if you are ever going to find your soulmate or ever finally land the dream. A Full Moon in Libra early on Friday, April 19, may bring all the emotion to a peaking pop, but much will meter as soon as the Moon begins to wane again. Mercury is in your opposite sign of Aries, and your ruler Venus joins him on Saturday, April 20, giving you far more confidence and far less futility. In addition, action Mars is in fellow air sign Gemini and encouraging brave steps.

Make it happen, because the stars say you can!

SCORPIO [Oct 24 - Nov 21]

You know how to handle intensity, you are wired for the deep, but life has been feeling heavy and serious with your ruler Pluto close to Saturn, the planet of gravity and time, as well as the South Node. While life may not ease up in ways as you are undergoing a deep metamorphosis that requires some time to release the weight of the past, you will have a plethora of energy to tackle what lies before you as Mercury just entered Aries on Tuesday, April 16, and Venus joins him on Saturday, April 20, to help you direct this surplus of energy in areas where you can make a visible difference. It’s like getting a garden ready for spring. Following a long, hard winter, the property could be a real mess but bit by bit, you begin to transform the place. Your energy and your efforts are making a daily difference and with Mars now in Gemini, it may be that you are dividing your time in opposing directions, but with all of this fire in the ethers, you will have plenty to give to both. A Full Moon in Libra early on Friday, April 19, will remind you of the need for balance and to avoid allowing things to reach an extreme. Too much of anything can simply make your belly full of it.

Strike that balance and you will fall in love all over again with whatever you are dedicating your Life and Soul to!

SAGITTARIUS [Nov 22 - Dec 21]

With your ruler Jupiter retrograde in your sign until August, you will progressively be able to inwardly apply all that has been added onto you in recent months. It would be a shame not to take those teachings to the depths that they deserve or to miss out on the wisdom that you are worthy of embodying. Consider your Soul to be a temple with which you can sit within, bathing in the truths that it now offers because of your journey. Of course you cannot disappear from the world all together, a Full Moon at the final degree of Libra sends a ripple effect of energy that has you longing for community and connection with like-minded others. Mercury is now in fellow fire sign Aries which is already going far to jump start your heart. Venus, the ruler for the Libra Full Moon, enters Aries as well on Saturday, April 20, to bring more of your presence to your creative life purpose. With Mars in Gemini in your house of others, you will find there is power in numbers to help bring a positive message out into the world or a strong pull to share in an adventure with someone who is as spontaneous as you are Sag.

Join forces and the pure love of living will prevail!

CAPRICORN [Dec 22 - Jan 19]

You sure are traveling with some powerful company. Your ruler Saturn is in Capricorn and has been inching his way toward forming a conjunction to Pluto, the planet of the Soul. However, they are both slowing down to shift retrograde at the end of this month before Saturn is able to officially merge with the metamorphic beast. The transiting South Node, the symbol for the past, is also in Capricorn and traveling in between these planetary points, serving to unearth memories of old and having your history very much alive within you. It’s about keeping it real. Due to Saturn’s retrograde, it will keep this dance going for at least six months and Saturn will not finally merge with Pluto until January 2020. A Full Moon at the final degree of Libra early on Friday, April 19, is destined to add additional fuel to the fire, motivating your ambitions and with Mercury now in Aries and Venus, the ruler for Libra, entering Aries on Saturday, April 20, you will not remember when you have felt this inspired and determined.

Your harvest may not happen today, but it is just a matter of time!

AQUARIUS [Jan 20 - Feb 19]

At times it takes just enough planetary punch to push something up and over the hump. A Full Moon at the final degree of fellow air sign Libra occurs early on Friday, April 19, in your house of expansive visions for your future. This arena also governs your truth and your most natural way that you are wired. This Full Moon may very well throw you into your fears but it will also throw you more deeply into your journey as a result. Mercury has cleared his shadow from the retrograde in Pisces and is now in feisty Aries, energizing you with plenty of sass and rebellion. The day following the Full Moon in Libra, Venus, the ruler for Libra, enters Aries as well gifting you with a double hit of courage to express what sets you apart from the rest. Action Mars in fellow air sign Gemini is also energizing what he can to bring out the very best in you, and you lean on the written word to voice what you know to be true.

The fires fueling your confidence are being stoked, lean into the heat and fly!

PISCES [Feb 19 - Mar 20]

With Mercury leaving the good graces of your ruler Neptune and entering Aries, on Tuesday, April 16, the fog has lifted. The skies have become clear and so has your plan. You know what you want. Now it’s just a matter of doing your best to make it all happen. A Full Moon at the last degree of Libra early on Friday, April 19, may feel to force you to make a choice between where your loyalties lie, which can always be tricky until you know how realistic the most desirable choice will prove to be. With Mars in Gemini, you may be struggling with choosing between the best of two options. It will be critical that you are honest with yourself and others in order to keep the energy clean and a path that supports your highest and your best. A breakthrough in your communications with someone could occur as well as we pull into next week with Uranus plugged into the Sun in your house of communication. If a sudden opportunity presents itself, step in and make your intentions clear. You may not be able to firmly commit one way or the other until this time next month.

Honesty clears the air and buys you some additional time so you are ready to mean "yes" when you say "yes"!
