April Astro

APRIL 2021

EFFORT & COMFORT

April brings us into a more intimate astrological cycle than we have had recently. Plenty of movement in the sky from the planets that we are physically closest to in space, plenty of movement below, in our personal space.

There is a noticeable shift in our communications & thoughts as Mercury whizzes out of dreamy, elusive Pisces, through active, bluntly direct Aries, & into a more considered & practical state of mind in Taurus, all within the first 15 days?! 

Ever-loving Venus steps gracefully off the Aries battlefield & is warmly welcomed into her luxurious, comfortable Taurus home to recover & redress (actions and clothes, ofc!). Any recent tussles or harsh words with beloveds can be soothed from the 19th, when the other person’s point of view suddenly makes sense. And if we are still missing the point there may be a sharp & shocking tipping point in the last week of April to wake, & shake, us up.

The star of the astrological show this month is the famous double act known as the Lunar Nodes aka the North Node & South Node; Rahu & Ketu; the Dragon’s head & the Dragon’s tail; our destiny & our natural-born talents.

With plenty of planetary activity engaging these two non-physical astrological points, in April we get the opportunity to focus on our direction, utilising our innate talents, & a perhaps a lucky break, to assist us. There is a lovely progression to the planetary themes the Nodes touch this month – our values & relationships; our identity & self-belief; our communications & thoughts; & most significantly, our steady determination & forward planning to overcome obstacles preventing us from getting to where we want to be.

Be on the lookout for opportunity & assistance from those we interact with in our everyday lives. And don’t hold back from being someone else’s helping hand!

Karma is at play, but perhaps not in the Westernised way we have come to view the concept. Doing something good or nice for someone else so that good things come around to you is not quite the type of gift being offered here. The current astrological energy is more aligned with doing right with integrity, assisting someone else simply because you can, without external thanks or recognition, while acknowledging the lift in your perception of your actions, internally.

Don’t overthink it, not that fast-moving Mercury will give you much of a chance! Enjoy the dynamic & pleasant vibe of what promises to be a lively & lovely April. A little effort goes a long way right now 💖

March Astro

Helping Hand

Here we are folks. There’s a feeling in the skies that the real beginning of 2021 is upon us. And I don’t just mean because it’s the beginning of the astrological new year, when the Sun moves into Aries late March. But HNY anyway 🥳

March feels easier. If you are after more excitement and drama (though please, do tell, why??), hang in there until the end of the month. But if you are after a break, some assistance, a little breathing space – here it is. No retrogrades. No planetary pile-ups. No overblown, hyperbolic scary bits to saturate your news feed. Just an ordinary month.

Now breathe.

And exhale.

This month we celebrate more than just calmer astro weather as old Sol, our mighty life-giving Sun, saunters into Aries for the Equinox. A time of rebirth for our Northern hemisphere pals. A time to slow down and embrace the cooler seasons for us Southerners. We may feel utterly inspired, or happily delusional, as the Sun meets with Neptune in the first half of the month, then dallies with Venus in the second half. Go with it, it’s been a tough year since they last danced together. But know that while the dance may be fleeting, the consequences, not so. Be true to yourself, but maintain integrity for your dance partner/s.

My Astrological Stars of the Show this month are planetoid Chiron and asteroid Ceres. Chiron’s astrological glyph reminds us of a key, but to which door? Ceres is nurturing and motherly, but at what cost? Her glyph looks like a question mark – almost – yet there is a line through the centre of the question. Our boundaries shift with our moods, our desires, our age, and stage, in life. Our boundaries meet those of others in our sphere. How do we ensure our concept of our loving, nurturing selves does not cross the line between loving guidance and plain old interference?

This month we get a helping hand.

Many of them actually. There are opportunities a-plenty of assistance, guidance, mentors and all round good feelings and support. We will offer the same. This will, of course, require effort on our part. To recognise support when it is offered. To accept the wisdom of others when it is shared. To recognise mentors when they appear, even though they may be clothed differently to what we expect.

There are plenty of opportunities for inspiration to strike, and better yet, take form. Plans made will bear fruit. Patience may be lacking, especially later in the month as planetary activity steps up a gear. But patience is a virtue, and a much better aspiration than any of the ‘seven sins’. We had plenty of time to indulge those delightful terrors in 2020. Perhaps it’s time to focus on wholehearted goodness? The word ‘integrity’ keeps springing to the front and centre of my mind.

The struggle to strive for temperance in the last few days of March is real.

There may be a hunger that cannot be satiated, a divine discontent that we cannot locate the cause of.

As above, so below. Look to the night sky. Enjoy the morning sunrise.

Take a moment to appreciate You, and your story. And accept that every human you meet has their own tale to tell. Or not.

We each have our own troubles and joys.

We all have a history.

We breathe.

We exhale.

Be kind.

Be well.
