April 24 through April 30, 2017
After a month of what seems like constant change (typical of the Aries Sun!) this week holds a more serene and steady pace. The only thing on the astrological calendar is Wednesday’s new Moon in Taurus, which heralds in a two-week cycle of new beginnings and fresh starts where you can create something beautiful and lasting. Keep in mind that Mercury is still retrograde however, so expect to weather a few reversals or calls to do things differently this week. Monday and Tuesday’s Aries Moon surrounds us with a positive and hopeful glow, while Wednesday and Thursday’s Taurus Moon reminds us to attend our physical world; comfort and security will be a theme. The Gemini Moon hangs overhead Friday and Saturday, compelling us to spend more time thinking, talking and socializing. Sharing our ideas with others has a way of generating the impetus to attain greater heights, so whether we’re at a party, blogging online or simply chatting with friends by phone, we’ll feel inspired! We can go two ways on Sunday as the Moon drifts through Cancer. You may opt to grab that bag of comfort food and plan on a “couch potato” day or start a home decorating project to update your favorite living space in the house!

April 17 through April 23, 2017
Be sure to get to your most pressing responsibilities on Monday and Tuesday while the Moon marches through Capricorn, because after that, it’s one change after another! Not only will the Moon dive into Aquarius on Wednesday, Pluto will turn retrograde and the Sun makes its annual entry into Taurus. Pluto retrogrades last for five months and are somewhat subtle, but combined with the Aquarius Moon, we’re likely to be in store for one kind of surprise or another! The Sun’s entrance into the sign of the bull heralds a four-week period where we can step back and relax a bit, move in more grounded ways and appreciate the world from a more physical level. (It’s no accident that Mother’s Day and graduations usually occur during May, as Taurus can mark a time of completion and transition from one form to another.) As if these changes weren’t enough, we’ll have Mars moving into the sign of Gemini on Thursday. Mars is the planet of action, while Gemini embodies multi-tasking and indecision, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself being pulled in two directions or worse yet, going around in circles for the next few days! Once Mars gets settled in Gemini, we can expect variety, curiosity and intellectual prowess to dictate our movements for the next two months. We’ll leave no stone unturned in our quest to learn and explore new experiences; be prepared to discover great things!
April 10 through April 16, 2017
As if Mercury Retrograde wasn’t enough to throw us off balance, Monday’s Libra full Moon is definitely likely to add to the confusing energies in the heavens. Refrain from making any decisions or sweeping promises you may not be able to stick to, and take everything you hear with a grain of salt! Venus will also be slowing down this week to resume forward motion on Saturday, which will lift romantic restrictions and allow for growth and forward movement once again. So basically it wouldn’t hurt to hide out under the covers this week, but if you can’t do that, become the observer rather than the participant. Interjecting your opinions or ideas are likely to fall on deaf ears, so make rebalancing all aspects of your own life the focus. Easter Sunday falls on April 16 this year, and interestingly enough, is one of the few events that is still dictated by astrological events. The date of Easter varies each year because it is decided on as the first Sunday after the first full Moon that occurs after the Spring equinox, which occurred when the Sun moves into Aries. It also heralds the actual coming of spring and rebirth, marking a time (in the Northern Hemisphere) where it’s safe to start planting our gardens, both physically and metaphysically!
