This is a fascinating month for you, Aquarius, a time of exploration and learning, when much of the unconscious knowledge that has built up within you might be made more consciously available to your listening mind and your intuiting heart. A remarkable Aries line-up of planets lands in your solar sector of communication, curiosity, and gathering of information, including Mercury its natural ruler. At the very beginning of the month this includes concepts of inner wounding which are ripe for you to more completely delve into. As you face, accept, and befriend the dark places within you, the possibility for better integration of all that internal material becomes more realistic. With the Aries New Moon of Sunday, April 11th, an even more dramatic shift in this area is likely, when you are encouraged by the cosmos to seize the day, and to make all the inner intelligence that is uniquely yours the subject matter for concerted action. To the extent that you can stay open to all that you have within you, both the exigent issues of family concerns and of your evolving worldview take on a mystical and practical revision of values that ultimately serves you well
