Welcome to spring! Have you felt the vibe shift? April begins with us still in the midst of fiery Aries season. We’re sprinting into a new era! But what are we sprinting towards? The runner’s high must be matched with some grounding intentions. What needs adjusting becomes clear at the full moon in Libra on the 6th which highlights what’s most out of balance.
Mercury spends the whole month (from the 3rd) in steady Taurus where the communication planet is slow and deliberate with words and ideas. This is a calming influence in an otherwise whirlwind month which gets even more interesting when love planet Venus enters flirty Gemini on the 11th.
On the 20th, there is a solar eclipse—a super potent new moon—in Aries. The sun enters Taurus later that same day. (Happy birthday to our lovable and stubborn bulls who are in good company with Lizzo, Channing Tatum and Gigi Hadid!). But with eclipses in the mix, this is not the usual fixed and reliable Taurus season. Eclipses bring sudden beginnings and endings, upsets and breakthroughs, success and disappointment. To make things even more chaotic, Mercury stations retrograde on the 21st in Taurus forcing us to press rewind and reconfigure the plan. When the only constant is change, it’s best to focus on what you can control.
