April is here, and life is starting to speed up for many of us. We’re planting, cleaning, and generally preparing to shake off more than a year of social dust as the clouds part and the world begins to open up.
Luckily, the stars will support us in this endeavor. We start off the month with Mercury entering Aries on the 3rd, where it will join the Sun and Venus. All three planets will sextile Jupiter in Aquarius and Mars in Gemini, creating a sharp, fun, dynamic atmosphere. This will culminate in a New Moon in Aries in the 11th before Venus moves into her home sign of Taurus, with the Sun and Mercury soon to follow.
But before we get to the slow, steady pace we expect from Taurus season, all three planets will come into conjunction with Uranus, jolting us right out of our peaceful repose. And then, almost immediately after, Mercury and Venus will square Saturn, which finally puts the brakes on this train.
I see it as a fun weekend outing. You frantically get dressed, get the kids ready, shuffle the family into the car, and rush to make it to, say, the local botanical garden before the crowds. You get through the ticket booth and start to relax as the sweet smell of flowers envelops you. But as soon as you feel your muscles stop tensing up, a crack of thunder lights the sky, and a torrential downpour advances like a veritable wall of water, putting an abrupt end to the day. But all is not lost! Now you can make your way back home (much more calmly this time!), and spend a lazy Sunday making art, reading, and watching the rain come down.
All in all, not so bad!
