Though this is a basically happy month – your 5th house of fun is full of planets and you are still in the midst of a yearly personal pleasure peak – there are a few bumps on the road. Technically there are no eclipses this month. But because many planets are reactivating the eclipse points ofApril, it is ‘as if’ the month is filled with ‘mini-eclipses’. Things not dealt with at the time of the actual eclipses are being dealt with now. Happily, with much fire in the Horoscope and mostly harmonious aspects, you have the energy to deal with these things.
The Sun transits an eclipse point (in Square aspect) on the 1st and 2nd of the month. Thus children can be more temperamental.
They should avoid risky kinds of activities. Sometimes this transit brings power blackouts. You are basically lucky in speculations this month, but it’s probably wise to avoid them on the 1st and 2nd.
Mercury transits this same eclipse point (the Solar Eclipse ofApril 29) on the 5th and 6th. Be more careful driving. Communications can be unpredictable and equipment is more prone to malfunction. There can be disturbances at the job. Sometimes there are health scares – but health is basically good.
Mars transits this point from the 10th to the 14th, affecting you more personally. Avoid risk taking, confrontations, rush and haste. Spend more quiet time near home.
Venus transits this point from the 18th to the 20th. This can bring short-term financial upheavals and testing times in love. Be more patient with the beloved during this period. Finances and love are actually very good this period but they are more stressful than usual – and good things can be just as stressful as bad things. Finally, Jupiter transits this point from the 24th to the 31st. Avoid gratuitous foreign travel. Many of you will be travelling this month, but try to schedule your trips around this time.
Aries loves adventure, and risk is fundamental to every adventure. Thus this month, with all its ups and downs, is probably exciting and enjoyable for you. There’s never a dull moment.
Last month the planetary power shifted from the East to the West – from the sector of independence to the sector of relationships and other people. Thus personal independence is lessened. This is a cycle for developing social skills and not for personal initiative. There is nothing wrong with personal initiative and nothing wrong with consensus. It is all a matter of what stage of the cycle you’re in. Now your goals are more easily attained through the co-operation of others, not through purely personal effort.
