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, April 21 – Moon in Capricorn, VC 7:21 pm. You want to keep everything organized and in order, but forces beyond your control cause eruptions and explosions. Something that started a very long time ago is being activated. Stay safe and away from potentially dangerous areas. Put your efforts into work and improving your daily output.

Tuesday, April 22 – Moon in Aquarius. This is not a day to rest. You will be dealing with some interesting and exciting events as Mars gooses Jupiter to deliver some golden opportunities. You’ll feel the conflict between thinking about them and having to go and grab them. Today is not a day to be lazy or you’ll miss out on something special that is being offered to you.

Wednesday, April 23 – Moon in Aquarius, VC 12:10 pm. The excitement continues with Mars pushing up against Pluto and standing opposite Uranus. He is revving up the energy for major change. Get ready to step out of the way and also to let go of whatever shakes loose. Mercury moves into Taurus to give you down to earth thoughts about what is going on.

Thursday, April 24 – Moon in Pisces. Take some deep breaths and move into your heart center. This is a week of extreme and unusual planetary events. You will need to sit and repeat, “This too shall pass.” Your intuition gives you guidance on what to say, do, and where to go. Everyone is having a tough time so be sure to extend your time and energy to those who are in need of them. It will help you if you help others.

Friday, April 25 – Moon in Pisces, VC 4:03 pm. This is a fertile day when dreams can come true, so take some time in the morning to write them down. You can settle any money issues that have been dragging on. It’s a day to propose to your loved one or to find another way to cement your relationship. Pay attention to the ideas that enter your head, as you will be using them in the future.

Saturday, April 26 – Moon in Aries. This is a weekend to do what you want to do. Think of it as the Universe giving you a few personal days. Hold back on planting but it’s a great day to prune and mow the lawn, or get a haircut. Try creative writing in a new style or make a video. Run a race or try an extreme sport. Test your courage by facing a fear.

Sunday, April 27 – Moon VC Aries. Don’t even try to get anything important done. Just follow your fancy and do what comes to mind. The Sun and Neptune have a pleasant connection and they take you into other worlds through imagination and fantasy. You’ll be moved to stay active so do what feels like fun to you.
