Astrology Predictions for 14-20 April 2013



The waxing Moon in Gemini gets the new week off to a chatty, friendly and fun start.  Spend some time out and about, communicate, touch bases with your siblings and enjoy this upbeat energy before the shift to the more home oriented Cancerian vibe on Monday.  You’ll need to be prepared to tweak plans when the First Quarter Moon arrives later in the week and one of those plans will be switching gears for this site.  I am happy to share with you the unveiling of my new home on the web, which you can see here!  Sign up now for a reminder when the site goes live!

And now, on with the show (Note:  all times indicated in this blog are PDT).

Sunday 14 April 2013 (5 Stars):  A five star Sunday for you to get out and get your fun on!  The fun begins with a scintillating sextile between the Moon and Uranus at 2:07 AM.  Some of you funsters will be enjoying Saturday night into the wee hours of Sunday morning and others will receive some interesting downloads while in dream land.  It’s all good, right?  Joyful exuberance abounds when the Moon joins forces with Jupiter at 11:57 AM; everyone should be able to have a chatty good time!

Monday 15 April 2013 (5 Stars):  Can you believe tax day (in America) is a five star day?!  Whaaaat?!  Well, let’s not question it, let’s just enjoy, starting with Venus entering Taurus at 12:26 AM.  Your love for beautiful things, nature and a simpler, more organized life starts now!

Look for intuitive solutions for your key projects when the Moon forms a sextile to the Sun at 11:36 AM.  You’ll want to get moving on those insights pronto thanks to a Moon-Mars sextile at 12:41 PM because the Moon is void of course after that last aspect until 7:49 PM tonight when it slides into its home sign of Cancer.

Work on your night moves with your partner or takes some time out for personal pampering when the Moon forms a sextile with Venus at 10:05 PM.  I told you, not bad for tax day at all!

Tuesday 16 April 2013 (2 Stars):  The Moon square Mercury at 2:48 AM snarls up communications with others as well as written and verbal projects; good thing this aspect happens fairly early in the day for those on the West coast.  Early morning meditation gets a major boost from a Moon-Neptune trine at 5:18 AM; this is also a great time for brainstorming ideas for projects or challenges as your intuition will be on point now.

Take time to plan, organize or de-clutter your office when the Moon trines Saturn at 2:14 PM.  Technical glitches or other wild/unwanted surprises are likely when the Moon squares Uranus at 3:12 PM.  Heavy manipulation or news of such behavior from others, and even obsessive tendencies sneak up on us when the Moon opposes Pluto at 7:18 PM.  Maybe you want to turn off the phone and stay off Facebook for awhile…

Wednesday 17 April 2013 (5 Stars):  Just one aspect, but it’s a biggie and it doesn’t arrive till 5:20 PM when the Sun conjoins Mars in Aries.  Passion and creativity are the dynamic duo of the day, so strut your stuff, but remember others may be feeling their power too!

Thursday 18 April 2013 (2 Stars):  The Moon squares Mars at 5:16 AM and this energy could best be channeled into some gentle, non-combative activity like yoga to quell anger, frustration or just plan ornery behavior.  That very same activity (yoga) will help you cope with First Quarter Moon challenges (Moon square the Sun at 5:31 AM; 28 degrees of Cancer) and even later in the day when the Moon squares Venus at 5:16 PM.  Love and money may be off kilter, but you’ll be easy about it if you take the time to engage in walking, yoga, Qi-Gong or other calming activities.  Also note, the Moon is void of course between 5:31 AM and 8:13 AM, so things may look much better once the emotional Moon jumps into fiery and fun loving Leo!

Chances are you will have some interesting problem solving solutions present themselves to you when Venus forms a sextile Neptune at 8:16 PM; if they don’t, go see a movie or listen to your favorite tunes and that may help you download some helpful advice from the Universe.  You’ll be back in rare form (communications wise that is) when the Moon trines Mercury at 11:54 PM; not the best time to be awake and chatty, so you might just want to break out the melatonin and lavender rather than allow yourself to jump into late night projects.

Friday 19 April 2013 (2 Stars):  A cold shoulder from a loved one or other depressing scenarios weigh on us when the Moon squares Saturn at 1:44 AM.  Some unusual activity, surprise, shock or a Universal download arrives at 3:18 AM when the Moon trines Uranus.  Our sunny nature supports us when the Moon forms a sextile to Jupiter at 2:06 PM helping us to cruise into the end of another work week.  The Moon is void of course after that last aspect until tomorrow evening, so avoid starting new projects until then.

And the Sun lopes into Taurus at 3:03 PM (Happy Birthday to my Taurean friends!) moving our focus to our financial concerns, organizational matters, and a return to our love of nature over the next 30 days…

Saturday 20 April 2013 (3 Stars):  Monkey mind runs rampant when the Moon conjoins Uranus at 2:20 AM–which is no help for those of us trying to get some shut eye.  With some intention though, you could use this aspect to download a brilliant communications or tech project, so go for it!  Another sleep buster arrives in the form of Mars moving into Taurus at 4:48 AM; just another indicator that the energy may be void of course, but still pretty physically focused and active today.

The Moon enters health and service oriented Virgo at 6:08 PM and then the Moon trines Mars at 6:58 PM; this aspect is great for some physical activity at the gym or a more personal tryst in private.  Later action oriented energies meet up with sage intuitive planning when the Moon trines the Sun at 8:22 PM; take advantage of the opportunity to kick key projects into gear!

And that’s the wrap up for this week; by this time next week we’ll be on another page, literally, so sign up for a reminder when the new site is up and running!

If you have anything that is worrisome, challenging or mystifying, book your private Tarot or Astrology consultation with me here.

So long for now; I will see you next week on my brand new site (I can’t wait to show it to you)!

Rich Blessings!

Astrology Predictions for 7-13 April 2013



We’re headed into a Dark of the Moon phase as this lunar cycle slowly grinds to a close.  The waning Pisces Moon offers a respite from the churn and activity of our normal schedule on this last day of the weekend, but we’re off to the races on Monday as the Moon shifts into red hot Aries.  Monday’s shift to Mars fueled Aries is the prelude to Wednesday’s New Moon in Aries giving us a green light for moving forward in a big way (finally)!  Mercury is no longer retrograde and slowing our efforts, and we will have a new lunar cycle to boot–sweet!  So, on with our weekly predictions (Note:  all times indicated in this blog are PDT).

Sunday 7 April 2013 (2 Stars):  A low energy day as befits the end of a lunar cycle; we begin with a Moon-Pluto sextile at 2:37 AM.  Emotions are intense and we can channel this intensity into visualization, affirmation or law of attraction work to break old habits (if we’re up in the wee hours of the day, that is).  The Moon square Jupiter at 5:06 AM indicates that if we have overdone it this week in terms of working too much, eating too much, overspending, etc., our habits may come back to bite us in the you know what; slowing down a bit and throttling back on spending, etc., is the best answer for now.

Spend your evening hours working on written or verbal communications projects when the Moon conjoins Mercury at 9:10 PM.  The Moon is void of course after that last aspect, so start your work prior to the last aspect and avoid new projects until the Moon enters Aries tomorrow afternoon.

Monday 8 April 2013 (2 Stars):  The energy will perk up, but not until the Moon enters Aries at 12:02 PM.  Your personal projects and key concerns are in the spotlight not only for the next couple of days, but all the way through the next lunar cycle (because the New Moon is also in Aries).  The Dark of the Moon phase energy isn’t going to provide much lift off and neither is the fact that there are no exact aspects today, so take it easy and get ready for blast off Wednesday.

Tuesday 9 April 2013 (2 Stars):  The Moon conjunct upstart Uranus at 4:56 AM jangles nerves, brings startling insights and surprising news early in the day–probably a lot earlier than you might like.  Heavy handed tactics from bosses or VIP’s via a Moon square to Pluto at 9:29 AM will likely try your patience; just roll with it if you can.  Optimism and a breath of fresh air in terms of our outlook arrives when the Moon forms a sextile to Jupiter at 12:50 PM.

Wednesday 10 April 2013 (3 Stars):  The energy would be higher today except for a lengthy void of course Moon, but we begin with the New Moon in Aries arriving at 2:35 AM (20 degrees of Aries).  Rethink the challenges that occurred during that lovely Piscean Mercury retrograde we just finished and the last lunar cycle.  It’s time to reorganize, reboot and transform the situations that were wonky into something brand spanking new!

The urge to hit the floor running will strike early thanks to a conjunction between the Moon and Mars at 6:02 AM; perhaps a trip to the gym or an early morning jog will get your day off to the right start.  The Moon conjoins Venus at 9:25 AM, so you might just want to jog over to the local salon for a bit of pampering before going into the office.  The Moon is void of course after that last aspect until this evening; table plans for new starts until 8:22 PM when the Moon enters Taurus.

Thursday 11 April 2013 (2 Stars):  The Moon is slowly gaining power as this new lunar cycle gets underway, so on this rather low energy day with the Moon in Taurus, try to spend some time in nature, review your financial statements and take pains to organize and de-clutter your spaces.

The first aspect of the day, a Moon-Neptune sextile at 5:06 AM is a great aspect for day dreaming about your goals, doing some visualization or creative work and even jotting down some notes about interesting dreams as you awaken.  There will be a need to balance and compromise your needs versus the needs of others when the Moon opposes Saturn at 2:36 PM; situations and needs of the people around you may feel oppressive and burdensome at this time.  Therapeutic work, research, law of attraction and networking with head honchos are all activities that benefit from a trine between the Moon and Pluto at 6:48 PM.

Friday 12 April 2013 (3 Stars):  While we don’t have a void of course Moon today, nor do we have any aspects to help boost our energy, so you’ll need to bring your own sunshine to today’s events.  The only celestial event on the the books for today is that Pluto, ruler of Scorpio makes its retrograde station and won’t return to forward motion until 20 September 2013–yes, you heard me correctly 20 September 2013.  Pluto rules organized crime, power, sex, wisdom and mystical experiences; expect these topics to be more prevalent in the news in the next few days as Pluto shifts its energy into a more internally expressed mode than is normally the case.  Scorpio natives can anticipate that their personal projects may feel stuck or stymied during this period; consider this a lengthy time out from the Universe (as if you needed another one, what with Saturn already retrograde in your sign).  Make this a time to observe what’s working and what’s not and then plan to make necessary changes in the Fall.

Saturday 13 April 2013 (1 Star):  This last day of a New Moon week still sports low energy, but we at least begin the day in mental high gear thanks to a sextile  between the Moon and Mercury at 5:30 AM.  The Moon square Neptune at 4:26 PM suggests deceptive promises or delusional thinking on our own part undermines our best intentions; postpone decision making until you have more clarity and truthful answers from others.

Mercury enters Aries at 7:37 PM so our communication and thought processes will be all about our personal needs and concerns until 2 May 2013 when Mercury moves into Taurus.

I hope you enjoyed April’s Astrological newsletter; if you missed it, it’s not too late, sign up here and I will get it out to you Monday 8 April 2013.  Also, be sure you join me next week, I will be interviewed and giving free readings in an online radio show.  Details forthcoming as soon as I have them!  And that’s about it for now, be well and until next time…

Rich Blessings!
