This month four planets will transit from Leo to Virgo. This tends to be a difficult transition, perhaps the most difficult between any two contiguous signs. The planets involved are the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars. These are the planets that are involved with our day-to-day interaction with each other and life in general. The shift from one sign to the next can be somewhat jarring because their focus is so totally different.

Eclipses are fairly rare events. We usually have 4 each year. Two are at the new Moon, which is a solar eclipse. Two are at the full Moon, which is a lunar eclipse. Because they are not common, it is often thought that when they occur, they can portend events that are also uncommon. The new Moon solar eclipse tends to affect leaders and people in powerful positions. The full Moon lunar eclipse is more likely to affect the common person. The influence of an eclipse is most powerful when it totally blocks the light of either the Sun or Moon. Partial eclipses, not so much. This month there will be a total new Moon solar eclipse in Cancer on the 2nd and partial full Moon lunar eclipse on the 16th in Aquarius.

The solstices pertain to the time when the Sun reaches its northern peak at zero degrees of Cancer (Summer Solstice) and begins its journey south. The southern peak occurs when the Sun reaches zero degrees Capricorn (Winter Solstice) marks the annual journey of Sun moving north. Although the Sun never goes north or south of 23/26, the other planets can and do. When these planets go beyond that latitude they are called “out of bounds”. The tropics of Cancer and Capricorn mark the limits of the Sun. It’s as if they provide the proper parameters within which daily life takes place. When another planet goes beyond those confines, however, they are freer to act as they choose.

This month there is an interesting alignment connecting four planets in what has been called a ”working wedge”. This is a configuration in which two planets are in opposition to each other while being harmoniously connected to another planet. In this case, Mars and Jupiter are in opposition to each other. Mars is in turn sextile to both Venus and Mercury. Jupiter is trine to Venus and Mercury. The benefit of the working wedge is that there is a way out of the tension created by the Mars-Jupiter opposition.Mars represents initiative, assertiveness and physicality of any kind. In early month it will be in Gemini. This suggests interesting, stimulating conversation. Mars could take the lead to initiate both the curiosity that can lead to new information and ideas as well as the drive to share it. Jupiter is in Sagittarius. This is the planet that rules Sagittarius and when a planet is in its own sign its energy flows freely. This planet and sign pertain to higher learning and consciousness expansion.

This month’s Full Moon is known as The Full Pink Moon. Indigenous people labeled this moon as such due to its proximity to the arrival of the first Spring flowers. Since the moon is in continuous motion around the Earth, it’s only technically full for a moment at 4:12 am on April 19th, but as per usual, the moon also APPEARS full the day before and the day after.

Astrology is the study of new beginnings. For example, a natal horoscope is a picture of the energy patterns existing at the time of one’s birth. It will reveal the tendencies and characteristics of that person. Western astrology divides the annual cycle of the Sun into four sections. Each section coincides with one of the four seasons of the year. By studying a horoscope cast for the four annual “cardinal points” of the year we can determine some of the major patterns for that season. The spring equinox took place this year on Wednesday March 20 at 2:59 PM PDT. The planetary positions for that chart can reflect the energies available to each of us for the next 3 months.
