There could be some sizzle in your life come April 5th for Venus will be entering courageous Aries. This will either bring a loving bond into your 7th house of partnerships or leave you feeling breathless in the 8th. Passion, pillow-talk and a daring feel of “leap before you look” could be steaming up your world.
Mercury, the planet of communications, will be entering Taurus this same day. This could find you opening up intimately with a partner. For many of you, Mercury will be chatting up your 8th house, so issues regarding sex, taboos, deep sharing or possibly joint-finances will come to the forefront. For a very rare few, a sudden departure of someone close to you could leave you feeling extremely tender-hearted. If the latter is true, my heart goes out to you.
Others of you could be thinking about taking a big trip far from home. In your 9th house, Mercury will focus on the practical steps you need to take to secure your life path. This could entail going back to school. Talking with people from other cultures could also expand your world view and you could readily find yourself at the library searching out books that will broaden your perspective.
On April 7th, life is going to get very exciting for there is a daring New Moon in Aries, conjunct Uranus, in your 8th house. The 8th house is a gateway to other realms. These other realms could be the transformative place you land when having sex with a partner.
It is also a very mysterious house that deals with psychological issues as well as mysteries that linger behind the veil. With a powerful placement in this house, sudden revelations, out-of-body experiences or intuitive hits could come in a flash. Inspiring dreams or states of consciousness could leave you feeling energized and connected to all that is.
Since jointly held resources are housed here, issues could pop up suddenly regarding bank accounts, 401Ks, loans, inheritances or other people’s money. Money could suddenly appear…or disappear for that matter.
A daring New Moon in the 8th could also encourage you to take risks behind closed doors, changing things up so to speak. With a loving, caring partner you know well, this could add sizzle and spice to your romance.
On the other hand, this is also a time to be cautious regarding people you may not know so well. This risk-taking configuration is squaring up to Pluto in your 5th house, thus igniting the Pluto/Uranus square. Serious power struggles could ignite regarding romances and intimacy so I would advice extreme caution if you are seeing someone new. It is also not a good time for gambling as you could readily see money whisked right out of your bank account.
On April 17th, Mars will start marching backwards in Sagittarius as he tromps through either your 3rd or 4th house. Here he will encounter Saturn who is also retreating in retrograde fashion. This tells me that you could be experiencing some frustrations or delays on the home front. It’s possible that this energy is linked to your 8th house action so issues regarding loans, inheritances or joint-financing could have you in stall mode when it comes to buying or fixing up your property.
If the Mars/Saturn action is taking place in your 3rd house, older siblings could be tweaking your life right now. Communications may run towards the serious end of things and you could find yourself getting worked up over what is being said. Inheritance issues could be stirring the pot with some of your relatives, for example.
Though you may be working hard on business negotiations, these too could feel like they are moving backwards. Not to worry, this period of time will pass and Saturn is simply asking you to get serious about the way you think, talk, communicate, learn and interact with others. Whatever lessons pop up, take them in stride and above all, be patient.
Pluto joins the backwards march by going retrograde on April 18th in your 5th house. Wherever he lands in your chart, he is likely to dredge up issues, power struggles and secrets so he can bring things to the surface.
Like the Hindu God Shiva, he desires to break down structures in your life so that something better can be built in its place. In the 5th house, he could be changing your romantic patterns, how you have fun, or is causing you to rethink parenting issues. He could also be demanding that you find a way to creatively express yourself to the world.
The Sun will enter Taurus on the 19th. That will either continue to electrify your 8th house or it will brighten up your 9th house which is where we encounter other cultures, different world religions, long journeys, education or the legal system, amongst other things.
Communications or your value system will bring you to some point of culmination or understanding under the full Scorpio Moon, to occur on the 22nd of the month. If she lights up your third house, you will be finalizing business negotiations or getting to the bottom of things with those you have been talking to, such as siblings, neighbors, teachers, etc.
If the Scorpio moon falls into your 2nd house, something important will be revealed regarding that which is near and dear to your heart. With the moon involved, it could have something to do with your home or your mother. If that same moon happens to grace your first house, your own emotions and deep psychological needs could be brimming forth, forcing you to express what’s in your heart.
Somehow, I get the sense that contracts will come up for review because this full moon is riding right next to Juno a female Goddess that has much to do with sexuality, marriage and upholding social contracts.
She is very steadfast in her undertakings, probably because she is the daughter of Saturn, the setter and enforcer of rules in our lives. Though steadfast, she is also moving retrograde so I get the sense that everyone will be renegotiating or reviewing the contracts they have in place with others. This could be you questioning what you value or it could be you hashing out a deal amongst relatives.
Emotions will rise like the tide under this full moon for something is going to come to a point of culmination or be revealed.
On the 28th of the month, Mercury will be slogging backwards in either your 8th or your 9th house. Be mindful of legal and school documents and check your car before heading out on a cross-country trip. If you need to talk over old issues with your intimate partner just use your calm presence and peace of mind as you enter into discussions. Review your financial plan, taxes and bank loans with a fine tooth comb before turning them in this month.
By months end, Venus will be leaving exhilarating Aries and heading into more practically minded sign of Taurus. Enjoy a couple’s massage or visit your favorite outdoor cafe for a lovely lunch and some sparkly.
Whatever sudden events head your way this month, Virgo Rising, know that you have what it takes to face the changes in your life with grace.

PS: A huge thanks goes to all of you who have responded requesting readings. I love my interaction with you and hope that I can provide astrological advice and counseling that sends you down a positive life path!
As part of building good karma and my business, I am going to extend my special to June 1, a one hour reading for $50. Contact info is at the front of the video. If I am a bit slow in responding towards the end of March or first few weeks of April it is because I am moving across country to a spiritual place. This is part of my Sag 2.0 restructuring process so bear with me. I need to get my roots into fertile soil and simplify in order to bring forth my north node.
In the mean time, check out my YouTube channel to learn about the female asteroid Ceres. I have one video specific to her with a follow-up one for when she clashes with Pluto in your chart.
