This week we see Mars enter Pisces and a full moon in Libra.
Thursday, April 14: Today Mars moves from futuristic Aquarius into intuitive Pisces. It’s not that Mars goes to sleep – he takes action, but in a Piscean way. This means he will act according to circumstances. It means he can easily change his mind, or do one thing now and another thing later. It's not that he’s flaky, but from the Piscean angle he has perspective – he can see how everything is connected … how the flap of the butterfly’s wings can cause a tornado. It was April 14, 1865, that Abraham Lincoln was assassinated by actor John Wilkes Booth at Ford's Theater in Washington, D.C.
Friday, April 15: Since entering Taurus, a few days ago, today marks two events triggered by Mercury. One with Jupiter. Another with Neptune. Good news comes not once, but twice and work, health and money matters are all positively highlighted. Happy birthday #67 to McDonald’s Restaurants, which first opened April 15, 1955, in Illinois.
Saturday, April 16: Today, we have a full moon in Libra. The full moon is square Pluto in Capricorn and trine Mars and Saturn. Every full moon in Libra is an opportunity to put ourselves into other people’s shoes and understand where they’re coming from. This full moon in Libra will not only help us have improved relationships, but will also help us understand ourselves better – understand how we are unconsciously projecting some of our qualities onto others. With Pluto, Saturn and Mars engaged, there is a strong pull to do the work – even if that means having some serious conversations or taking an ego blow here and there. Twenty-six editions of the Masters golf tournaments were voiced by television broadcaster Pat Summerall, who died on April 16, 2013, at age 82.
Sunday, April 17: Even though it isn’t likely a no-brainer, honesty is a must today. Speak your mind and listen. It’s a day to learn. It was April 17, 1982, that Canada passed the Constitution Act of 1982, setting in law rights and freedoms for all Canadians, and detailing rules and regulations for amending the act itself.
Monday, April 18: Today, Mercury conjuncts Uranus in Taurus and our antennas are up. Mercury-Uranus aspects are those “lightbulb moments” when something becomes clear. There’s nothing ambiguous about Taurus. What we see is what we get. As Wordle takes hold of gamesters everywhere, we are reminded that it was April 18, 1924, that Simon & Schuster published the world’s first crossword puzzle book.
Tuesday, April 19: Late this evening, the Aries part of 2022 comes to an end as the sun moves into Taurus. It’s a stubborn end to Aries with a glimpse into your personal future to divert your attention. On April 19, 1927, actress Mae West was arrested, jailed and fined $500 for her lewd stage performance of a play called “Sex.” Upon her release, she moved to Hollywood and became one of the highest-paid stars in show business.
Wednesday, April 20: It’s Four Twenty Day. Originally a clandestine code for marijuana smokers, it’s passe in most places due to changes in the law. With the moon in Sagittarius, square to Jupiter in Pisces, mostly it will feel like a “high” without any artificial assistance. Happy birthday #85 to George Takei, Mr. Sulu from the original “Star Trek” series and a thoughtful voice of Facebook.
Upcoming, we see Venus connect with Neptune and Jupiter and Mercury enter its home sign of Gemini.
