April 2014 is a wild month. There are two eclipses – a Lunar eclipse on April 15 to add more tension to tax day, and a solar eclipse on April 29. The lunar eclipse is at 25 degrees of Libra, next to Mars, and the Solar is at 8 degrees of Taurus. If you have planets at or near those degrees, you will feel the effect of the eclipses strongly and there will be big changes in your life. The last two weeks of the month will be unstable, like trying to keep your balance while standing up in a canoe.
Pluto, Uranus, Mars, and Jupiter form a square by degrees and signs. This is a signal of tension and is another herald of big change. Something that started in the mid-sixties and has been developing since then will erupt. It’s like turning up the heat on a pot that has been simmering and watching it spill over the top. Anyone with planets at 13-15 degrees of Capricorn, Aries, Libra, and Cancer must be ready for their world to be shaken up.
Mars continues to move backwards all month making you feel like you’re trying to run in a swampy marsh. Take deep breaths and stay loose. This too shall pass.
Monday, March 31 – Moon in Aries, VC 4:07 pm. The fiery energy of the day gives you the confidence to promote your ideas, your work, and yourself. Take steps to move your life along. It’s time to start, not finish. You have to do tomorrow’s work as well as today’s, but it won’t be hard as you need to keep in motion. Watch your temper and be sure to wear a helmet when needed as you may move too fast.
Tuesday, April 1 – Moon in Taurus. Today is a fertile day and you can use it to grow more than seeds. It’s a good day to expand your business or artistic ventures. Make some conservative changes to your investments. You can find bargains where you least imagine them if you keep your eyes open. Keep your April Fools pranks on the earthy side.
Wednesday, April 2 – Moon in Taurus. Today is a better day to ply your April fools pranks, since with the Sun meeting Uranus everything is upside down. Life will hand you unexpected opportunities. You need to let your eccentric side out to play. Write down your dreams, both the sleeping and awake kind. You’ll want to use the ideas in them later on. It’s a good day to do research on material matters.
Thursday, April 3 – Moon in Gemini. Don’t look for stability as the Sun and Pluto square off to shake up the day. You’ll have to let go of what is used up and done with even though you don’t want to. Something is working its way up from the depths of your psyche and you need to make room for it. You will have to upset the apple cart as you struggle to get out from under someone’s control.
Friday, April 4 – Moon in Gemini. There’s lots of energy to keep you buzzing around and interacting with lots of people while you get your work done. Stick to short tasks. Try not to get distracted by gossip or by the fun stuff on the Internet. You’ll find the words to communicate what you feel when you are asked for your opinion. Don’t leave anything important for tomorrow, do it now.
Saturday, April 5 – Moon in Gemini, VC from 10:55 am until 5:40 pm when it enters Cancer. Your mind will enjoy the free time of this VC day. Have fun browsing bookstores, libraries, listening to lectures and talks, and going to museums. Call up some friends or relatives you haven’t seen in a long time and try to see them today. Venus enters Pisces, a sign she excels in, and offers you an insight into your ability for universal love and compassion.
Sunday, April 6 – Moon in Cancer. It’s a family day when it will feel good to hang out at home with kids and pets and favorite objects. Cook your childhood comfort foods and let the food soothe you. It’s a super fertile day for planting so the time you spend in the garden will bear good results. Make some wishes and ask for them to come true.
