This is an interesting, transformational, and ultimately rewarding month for you, Aquarius, as you wrestle with issues of communicative outreach and inner process. You have a lot going on right now, in all areas of your life, to include your work in the outer world. Your major product in this April timing, however, is yourself. Your entire self-concept is evolving based on increased conceptual awareness of various disparate sides of your personality coming together into one. There is the recognition that deep inner values affect every decision that you make, and everything that you do. Your learning curve is steep right now, and this is even the point of the exercise. As your awareness expands so too do your beliefs and worldview, especially in the timing of the powerful Libra Full Moon of Saturday, April 16th, which is revelatory. Inner work, values, as well as potential psychological hang-ups are important themes both for now and for much of the remainder of the year ahead. The integration that you seek, although it takes a lot of hard work to accomplish, is, in another sense, only a gesture away.
The following was written by Leslie Benson and Henry Seltzer. The usual column by Elodie St-Onge Abut will return.
The Aries New Moon that begins the April month takes place in your sector of communication, curiosity, and learning, therefore introducing a monthly cycle that could be a rather talkative time. Being an Air sign you are accustomed to using your mental faculty so that this month is in many ways right down your alley, although other indications in this New Moon and its outer planet energies tell us that your investigations will be far from the stuff of ordinary logic. For one thing, this New Moon configuration, setting the pattern for the remainder of the month, has the Sun and Moon are closely conjunct the inner-oriented symbolism of Chiron, the Wounded Healer. There are areas in everyone’s psyche that are walled away and seldom visited, oftentimes the result of undigested early childhood trauma, and Chiron characteristically speaks to these issues and hurt places within us. The strong positional factor of Chiron therefore speaks to the idea that events may well conspire in some form or manner to bring such issues from your own psyche further into the light of consciousness.
The highlighted presence of transformational Pluto, Lord of Death and Rebirth, in this New Moon configuration is also to be remarked upon, and implies that deep-seated changes are still occurring within you. What likely to come about through the agency of this rather intense monthly cycle is nothing less than a more profound understanding of who you at base really are.
On April 4th and 5th, as Mars conjoins Saturn in your sign, corresponding to the identity sector of your solar chart, you might feel a strong energy for better understanding yourself at all levels, and especially in the way in which you come across to others. It is also possible that, in the midst of a fairly energetic time for you, you will come to a relative standstill in such progress for this brief period of time. If so, that might be a blessing in disguise, giving you moment or two to reflect on where the universe is leading you over the course of an introspective month.
From April 7th to the 16th, Jupiter conjuncts Neptune in Pisces – or your second solar sector of values and resources – leading to several potential outcomes. For one thing, you might feel an over-idealized sense of your financial strength, and while confidence is good there could be issues of confusion surrounding this. For another possibility, good fortune could be at your doorstep here, and the profit could come about through mystical means or even through faith in what you are truly up to at this time. Finally, it might be that you will be somewhat deceived in what you imagine to be your actual values or the state of your bank book. Since it is difficult to tell what is truly going on during these ten days, it will be good to apply discretion to your situation until you have some evidence of the actual situation.
On April 12th, the Sun sextile Saturn in your sign, corresponding to your first sector, might provide the sense of limitation that you need to navigate the situation referenced in the preceding paragraph.
On Saturday, April 16th, the Libra Full Moon lights up your sector of higher mind, contributing to your growing understanding of where you stand in terms of worldview. Things that you have been visioning into being may become more clear at this significant juncture. The Full Moon in general represents a culmination of what has gone before it in the first two weeks of the lunation cycle from New Moon to New Moon. In this case there is also a strong T-square alignment from Sun and Moon to transformational Pluto in Capricorn, your twelfth solar sector, furthering the sense of personal evolution that you are feeling all this month. You are also becoming better acquainted with the processes taking place below the surface layers of your psyche, your inner world of dream imagination and inner work.
As the month nears its close, from the 27th to the 29th, Venus in Pisces conjuncts first Neptune and then Jupiter, bringing a pleasing sense of spiritual optimism to your ideas about your values, and also perhaps with respect to your financial situation. You might also come to the notion that the material side of your existence has little or no importance compared to the sense of what you have managed to accomplish in intangible realms. Because Pluto is stationing to retrograde motion in this same timing, there could also be an emphasis on your ongoing developmental arc.
Then, on Saturday, April 30th, at the very end of the month, a Solar Eclipse in Taurus indicates another powerful juncture for you, this time affecting your home and family sector which also represents new emerging factors of your family situation, or from the past. There might be actual alterations to your dwelling space, or the metaphorical equivalent in your psychological roots. These things will become a major focus for you throughout the May month. Eclipses are said to last six months, so that these factors could continue to be important for you well into the remainder of the year.
