Monthly Forecast For April

April starts out with some lovely aspects, beginning 4/2, with the Moon in Scorpio making a Trine to Neptune in Pisces. This is a trine in the Water Element, promoting faith, trust, and a connection to one’s Higher Self. It is also forming two sextiles, to Mars and Saturn, giving both momentum and patience. This is underscored by Mars conjunct to Saturn that day. The Moon conjunct to Jupiter on 4/3 brings abundance and increased optimism.

Thursday, 4/5, is a mixed bag, with the Sun in Aries trine to the Moon in Sagittarius, Fire sign to Fire sign. This brings enthusiasm and zeal, and a desire for new beginnings. Mercury square to Saturn can bring up some subconscious fears about expressing yourself. Don’t let it. 4/12 is wonderful. The Moon makes four lovely aspects, while Venus, the planet of love and creativity, sextiles both Neptune and the Moon. This is a very high vibrational aspect.

The New Moon in Aries on 4/15 May bring some shake-ups in the world, as the Moon in Aries squares both Mars and Pluto in Capricorn. This is a karmic aspect. People who think they are above the law may find out differently this month. Mercury goes direct, also. Finally. This leads into the 16th and 17th. Wow. Powerful. A number of aspects involve Pluto. Pluto is the planet of alchemy. These are good days to set your magical intentions for what you want to create. The Moon in Taurus lends fixity of purpose, so that what is manifested is permanent.

We have a Grand Trine in Earth signs on 4/25. The Moon in Virgo trines the Sun in Taurus and Saturn in Capricorn. Nurture yourself, and add compassion and patience. Anything is possible. 4/26 is also fabulous.

The Full Moon on the 29th is powerful, with the Sun in Taurus opposing the Moon in Scorpio. The Sun trines Saturn and the Moon sextiles it, adding stability and wisdom to a willingness to let something go. 4/30 is wonderful, with a number of very powerful and spiritual aspects.

April starts out with the Sun in fiery Aries, the ram, which is about inspiration and passion, and the dawn of a new day. It then closes with the Sun in Taurus, the bull. An Earth sign. That’s why I chose this photo, taken by a friend while she was in Myanmar. It represents nurturing the fire of the spirit residing within us, combined with the tenacity to stay our chosen course.

April looks to be an eventful month, full of opportunities for growth and change. Learn to embrace every opportunity to evolve, to move forward. May this month bring the fulfillment of all of your hopes and dreams. Blessings, Judith

March Monthly Forecast

Karol Bak, artist.

March starts off with a Full Moon, 3/1, with the Sun in Pisces opposing the Moon in Virgo. With Venus trine to Jupiter, we can expect a day of Justice, the law being upheld, optimism, faith renewed, and good news. Saturn trines the Moon, so patience is rewarded.

3/4 is excellent, with the Sun in Pisces conjunct to Neptune in Pisces. Neptune rules the Astral Plane, and Divine Love. This is a wonderful day to reflect, to go within, to meditate. 3/6 is even better, with the Moon in Scorpio trine to the Sun and Neptune in Pisces, while it forms a sextile to alchemical Pluto. This is great for magical intention work, and for healing old wounds, since Pluto rules the Shadow self. Dream the life you want. 3/7 is another winner, where the Moon moves into fiery Sagittarius, trining Venus and Mercury. This encourages passion, and a willingness to speak ( Mercury) from the heart ( Venus).

3/11, 3/12, and 3/13 are all good, with numerous planets supporting optimism, the willingness to change, and self esteem.

The New Moon on the 17th, with the Sun and Moon conjunct at 27 degrees of Pisces, is magical. This is a day of infinite possibilities. The Vernal Equinox is on 3/20, as the Sun enters Aries. This is also a seriously magical day. We have some lovely aspects, as well as moving into the Wood Element in Chinese Medicine. The Wood Element is about change. It’s about movement forward, momentum, and choices. What changes do you need to make? Now is the time.

Mercury turns retrograde on 3/22. I know, so annoying. Speaking of annoying, 3/24 calls for patience and slowing down the impulse to squash people like a bug. The Sun squares Mars, the planet of aggression and haste, while the Moon opposes it. Lovely. Everyone is a cranky pants, so try not to engage.

The 28th is wonderful, with trines galore. This is good, because the month ends with a Full Moon again, another Blue Moon, with the Sun in Aries opposing the Moon in Libra. This Full Moon is not as warm and fuzzy as the first one this month. For the twenty four hour period around it, stay grounded, patient, and calm. Let people do what they’re going to do, believe what they want to believe. Don’t engage, rescue, or try to convince anyone of anything. Let go. Let go. Let go.

March looks to be an amazing month, full of blessings and wonderful opportunities for growth. Welcome the springtime, the Wood Element, and the new momentum. It’s awesome. Blessings to all, Judith

The Monthly Forecast For February

This month is interesting, given that there will be no Full Moon, only a New Moon, due to the 2 Full Moons in January, the last one being on the 31st. Since February only has 28 days, we miss the next Full Moon by one day. It will fall on March 1st. February starts off with the Moon in Leo on 2/1, forming a Trine to Uranus in Aries. I think we can expect the unexpected, with sudden, unforeseen events unfolding. The Moon, which rules the subconscious mind and emotions, then moves into Virgo, the analyst, in the early evening. Here, it squares Mars, and trines Saturn. Expect heated debates, conflict over details, and then a calming, stabilizing energy.

On 2/4, the Moon in Libra trines the Aquarius Sun, bringing balance, fairness, and justice. Libra represents Sacred Law, so this is a good day for intention work around Divine Justice, or Divine Restoration. A good affirmation would be:” All That is mine by Divine right is now restored to me. Divine Justice aspects all areas of my life, and I am protected and blessed in all my endeavors. Everything that is mine is now returned to me, under grace, in perfect ways.”

On 2/7, the Moon in Scorpio conjuncts Jupiter, the planet of faith, hope, and optimism. Everything feels possible. At the same time, it makes a sextile to Pluto, the alchemist. This is a great time to remember that it’s a magical universe. Embrace the possibilities.

2/12 is wonderful, with the Moon in Capricorn forming positive aspects to Pluto, Jupiter, and Neptune. Dream big.

The Solar Eclipse and New Moon on 2/15 is a powerhouse. The Sun and Moon will be at 27 degrees of Aquarius, with both Mercury and the Moon sextiling Uranus. Wow. Freedom from old patterns and beliefs. Change. A new path, a new direction. This is beautiful. The 17th is also very good.

The Sun enters Pisces on the 18th. 2/20 and 2/21 are also very positive. I would avoid making important decisions on 2/23, a day of confusing, mixed messages. The 25th is also very positive.

February looks to be an eventful month, and a very high vibrational month. Remember, the planets incline, they do not compel. We can take advantage of positive influences, and minimize the negative ones. That’s the whole purpose to looking at the Forecast. It’s meant to be empowering. I hope it’s helpful. Blessings, Judith
