April 2013 Astrology Forecast

Astrology Forecast


In April, the power of spiritual healing is amplified by a Pluto-Chiron sextile. A Venus-Mars conjunction stokes relationship energy, while an Aries New Moon empowers new beginnings. A Saturn-Uranus quincunx can instigate a balancing act between the old and the new. The Sun enters placid Taurus as the month wanes, and a high-intensity Scorpio Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon) is April’s final major aspect.

4/4. Pluto sextile Chiron|
4/7. Venus-Mars conjunction
4/10. Aries New Moon
4/12. Pluto stations retrograde
4/12. Saturn quincunx Uranus
4/19. Sun enters Taurus
4/25. Scorpio Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon)

The Story So Far

As April opens, Saturn is retrograde thru 7/8. And the pervasive energies of revolutionary transformation (a Uranus-Pluto square), as well as universal love, compassion and spiritual awakening (Neptune in Pisces), will be active for years to come!

Void-of-Course Moons

It’s best to avoid starting important new projects or making major purchases during these times. “Business as usual” is the best strategy for these periods, which occur when the Moon has made its last major Ptolemaic aspect but has not yet moved into the next sign.
