April 24, 2022: Mercury at 23° Taurus conjunct the North Node and in a t-square with Saturn at 23° Aquarius and the South Node at 23° Scorpio. Here we are facing an existential crossroads. Which way will we go? Will we embrace the North Node in Taurus, reveling in having a physical experience of life? Can we face our demons enough to do so, can we let go of the illusion of control and embrace the unknown future?
April 26, 2022: New Venus Portal: Venus conjunct Moon at 23° Pisces at 11:49pm CST. The Moon and Venus are in a conjunction even as Venus approaches its conjunction first with Neptune and then with Jupiter. Our hearts can be broken open at this time with a flood of mystical revelations and love. We can also get emotionally overwhelmed by the collective when we find ourselves without boundaries and ungrounded. Go barefoot in the grass, hug your pet, hug a tree, be in your body, stay present with your experience no matter how uncomfortable it may be. Emotions are meant to flow. Let them move through you.
April 27, 2022: Venus conjunct Neptune at 24° Pisces. One of the best ways to use this energy is to create, whatever that means for you. Write, dance, sew, cook, plant, sing, paint, sculpt, whatever you feel moved to do. In fact, creating art is a wonderful way to process emotions and heal traumas. This is also a very loving energy, so you may feel more connected, compassionate, and in the heart. Are there people you can see differently now, perhaps forgive? Can you see yourself differently now, extend compassion to yourself as well?
April 28, 2022: Mercury at 28° Taurus trine Pluto at 28° Capricorn. Can we use this energy to support our efforts to move forward in a new way? Can we allow ourselves to be transformed beyond anything we have ever known before? What if we made the health of our bodies, nature, and the earth a priority in any structure, institution, or system? What would that look like? How would our values have to change?
April 29, 2022: Pluto goes retrograde at 28° Capricorn 36’. This is the last chance for Pluto to get its pure Capricorn lessons. The next time Pluto goes retrograde, it will have dipped its toes into the first degree of Aquarius, giving us a taste of what is being transformed in that part of our lives. Pluto has been unearthing rot in our structures, institutions, and systems since 2008. It has not been pretty, but Pluto is not called The Lord of the Underworld for nothing. Better to allow transformation rather than fight it and suffer.
Mercury enters Gemini. Mercury enters the sign it feels the most at home in. Gemini is quick, clever, curious, open, and has a beginner’s mind, quite like The Fool in the tarot, standing at the edge of a cliff. Be the fool and live in wonder of the moment, letting awe lead the way. What is possible if we leap?
