April 4th, 2022 - April 10th, 2022
With the recent New Moon Aries intensely aspecting Chiron and Mercury, we have been confronted with our shadows and deepest pains. The part of ourselves has been wounded, distorted, and restricted our hearts and minds from being open. We are gifted with the sight of self, the ability to see all we are, have been, and could ever be.
Mars, Saturn, and Mercury are the leading players this week, with Jupiter and Neptune dancing together in the background. We have continued support in balancing our lives and start to see glimpses of the future. These glimpses offer a road map of merging with our highest self on the highest timeline. We can reclaim ourselves through shadow work and be excited about planning what's ahead.
Aries and Aquarius also make for great charisma. Remember to just be yourself when dealing with others. Force, persuasion, manipulation, and control will not be taken lightly, and any conflict this week has a greater chance of unwanted consequences. Have fun, mingle, plan the future, make time for self-care, and allow yourself to soar to new heights of self-love and awareness.
Expanding the Soul
Jupiter and Neptune continue their relationship in the house of Pisces. Jupiter conjunct Neptune in Pisces amplifies Pisces' effect and becomes exact conjunct on April 12th. Spiritual development is ideal under this aspect. Opportunities for personal and material growth can be gained from exploring the self. Retreats, group gatherings, and trying new things are positively affected. Clarity can come by way of dreams, intuition, and visions. Awakenings and ascensions are likely to be activated.
Jupiter and Neptune are needed to provide a healing and loving energy to integrate our shadows and accept our true selves. This energy is best used to open the heart and mind leading to the ability to see more clearly beyond the ego's illusions.
Jupiter and Neptune are both sextile the North Node in Taurus. Expect to be gifted unexpected opportunities as we open our hearts to receive. Sitting in fear will keep the heart closed and lead to more restriction. Themes: Dreams, Intuition, Travel, Astral Travel, Visions, Psychic Mediumship, Healing, Love, Heart Healing, Compassion, Empathy, Ascension, Awakening, Activation, Spiritual Development, Material Growth, Personal Growth, Retreats, Consciousness Expansion, Illness Recovery, Shadow Work, Transformation, Music, Creativity, Optimism.
Make Magic, Not War
Mars and Saturn dominate the week with multiple aspects between each other, the North Node, and Juno. Mars conjunct Saturn in Aquarius brings a great work ethic and satisfaction of progress towards goals. Our desire to get going on personal projects, work, and sacred missions will be intense and should be acknowledged. However, given the strong presence of Jupiter and Neptune, there should still be time for self-exploration and allowance for new information to forward. Things are still shifting, so let them and try to avoid making permanent changes for right now.
Daily structure is necessary with this aspect. Otherwise, frustration can emerge and cause conflict along with self-criticism. The shadow manifestation of Mars conjunct Saturn is destruction, control, criticism, judgment, rage, fighting, and war. Avoid that by maintaining a solid connection to oneself and a healthy life balance.
Mars and Saturn are both conjunct Juno in Aquarius. The protector of women and goddess of marriage can exhibit jealousy and vengeance due to being dominated. Relationships this week that are ego-driven and experience control, judgment, or fear can experience a lot of conflicts. Interdependent relationships will thrive, and the individuals in these relationships have the potential to experience significant personal growth.
This week is a time to be open to love, personal development, and possibilities while being disciplined in meaningful endeavors. Uranus in Taurus square Vesta in Aquarius brings more focus on the unique and unconventional within sacred work. Embrace it by accepting the true self. Avoid war by focusing on making magic in the world.
From an Ember to A Raging Fire
Accepting our true selves will show us our innate talents. What we can offer the world and experience in our lives will become more evident. Mercury in Aries sextile Saturn in Aquarius occurs in the middle of the week. This is the perfect time to understand what we want and how to make it tangible. Preparation and organization are best left to the middle of the week.
Communication comes easier, particularly around authority or the need to capture the attention of others. Charisma and attraction can work wonders when meeting others and during negotiations. Falling back on the authentic self with an open heart will be critical as any forceful or manipulative actions will be met with resistance. Respect the autonomy of others to respect your own.
The Sun in Aries sextile Saturn in Aquarius helps us understand our core desires, capabilities, and how we want to show up in the world. Mercury in Aries sextile Mars in Aquarius creates more drive, fire, and motivation to be recognized for our visions. The more excited we become about our personal visions, the more we want to share them. Revel in the joy of sharing with others, but do so with humility. Other people may have a lot to offer and could bestow their knowledge, benefiting our larger goals. The wounded ego can get in the way here, and things can unravel.
Mercury in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn can agitate the wounded ego, making the pursuit of our visions more challenging when interacting with others. The New Moon in Aries that took place last week brought us face to face with our most wounded selves. Pluto, in this position, can do the same thing and tempt us to seek control in a situation to appear more powerful.
Be aware and mindful of triggers and take accountability as we embrace the magic of Aries and Aquarius. Fire can give new life, but it can also burn, and with enough air, fire can be devastatingly destructive. Themes: Discipline, Strategy, Planning, Authority, Leadership, Career, Pursuit, Personal Freedom, Creative Intelligence, Networking, Bossing Up, Passion, Drive, Motivation, Conflict, War, Destruction, Creation, Sacred Work, Purpose, Service To Others.
Focus on connecting with yourself to have better awareness and healthier relationships with your outside world. As pain comes to the surface, addressing it can bring self-love and personal freedom. Having a daily structure where meaningful work can occur is as vital as having room for fun and exploration every day.
Who you are and what you can offer the world come more into view. Your excitement and drive to do something with this new information will be strong and should be used to plan and prepare for later action. Things are shifting and falling into place, be open to what blessings can come for you, even if it doesn't look like a blessing on the surface.
Fights and conflicts may offer tests and initiations. You do not have to get sucked in. If you become triggered, it is a sign to go within and reconnect to your truth. This week is a chance to align with your true self, your highest potential, to live out your best life. The gifts you have available to offer can potentially lift others into their best selves, so take advantage. We need you.
