April 2012 Roundup

Mercury went retrograde in Pisces on March 12 and will be turning direct again on April 4. I don’t know about you, but it can’t happen soon enough for me.   This retro in Pisces has been strange. Opportunities surfaced that looked promising, then didn’t pan out. We had to replace a pool pump. Friends had plumbing problems. A neighbor received a generator two weeks late. Checks that were en route never arrived.  E-mail problems, computer problems. All these things are status quo for Mercury retrograde.

The good news is that this retro is over and there won’t be another until July – July 15 to August 8.

Other news for April: Mars, which has been retrograde since late January, turns direct again in Virgo on April 13. This means that projects and endeavors which have been moving sluggishly -– if at all – suddenly zip forward again.  Our motivation, momentum, and physical energy will increase. We begin to feel we’re in our groove again.

On April 6, there’s a full moon in Libra and on April 21, there’s a new moon in Taurus. The full moon first. Don’t be surprised if the people around you act erratically during this full moon.  The planets are stressed and here on Earth that can result in bickering, miscommunication,(even though Mercury will be direct by then) and a sudden flare-up in tempers. You may find your teenagers, howling at the moon. In fact, you may  decide to join them!

The new moon in Taurus on April 21 should be a lot calmer.  Mars forms a close, beneficial angle to this new moon and Pluto is also on board. The combination suggests new opportunities that are grounded and stable. Take time to carefully consider these opportunities, then select whatever feel right to you.

Check here to get your birth chart. Look for where Taurus falls in your chart.The symbol resembles a circle with a smile on top of it.Then check here for what the houses mean. The house placement of the new moon should usher in new opportunities according to what that particular house rules.

A date to circle? April 23. The sun and Mars connect in a positive way, perhaps in celebration of spring!
