Happy April, Earthlings!

It’s a refreshingly quiet week from the Universe after last week. There are few major transits to report and all of the planets are just humming along swimmingly, nicely settled into some new signs for some of them. We do have a New Moon this week, making this a grand week to celebrate some new beginnings. The New Moon zone will be in effect from April 3 to April 7, giving you almost the entire week to launch some new beginnings and really get a fresh start on some new Spring chapters.

Venus entered Pisces last week and this is going to make all of us a wee more emotional than we have been of late. Pile on the romance! When wrinkles crop up, smooth them over with love, sweet love. This is true whether it is work, life, love. You can even bring love to the dentist office if you like.

Mercury also turned direct last week in the same zodiac sign, the Mutable sign of the Water signs, Pisces. Gone are the wrinkly retrograde days, and our communication and travel matters just took on a romantic new twist.

Those matters related to research, inspiration, logical thinking, some of these things that Mercury rules, will be replaced with some warm and fuzzy thoughts.

  • This will confuse signs like the Air signs, Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius.
  • Earth signs Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn, will be a little uncomfortable with all of the feelings going around. But it will be a compatible space.
  • Water signs Scorpio, Pisces, and Cancer are all going to thrive in this astrological weather.
  • Fire signs Leo, Sagittarius, and Aries will enjoy the emotions, but they may find this energy a little on the slow side.

All of this watery energy is leading us into more fiery energy when these planets switch it up and move into Aries next month. And, with that New Moon in Aries this week, the Pisces energy will be a wonderful balance to jump-starting some fresh cycles.

Until then, it’s love, sweet love that is running the show. And not just love. Follow that intuition and those psychic impulses, and the sweet whispers from your angels and guides.

What a beautiful way to launch this month, with Spring Fever everywhere!
