Sunday, April 2nd
The Moon enters Cancer today at 2:27pm EST, where the Moon is at home and concerned with nurturing and nesting. The Moon squares Venus shortly thereafter at 2:39pm EST, which is just hours before Venus rx moves back into Pisces at 8:25pm EST. This aspect may juxtapose staying in your comfort zone with branching out in an attempt to emulate others. Venus in Pisces can be quite sensitive and susceptible to the emotions of others, but being retrograde, may encounter blocks when trying to juggle urges with values.
Monday, April 3rd
The Moon in Cancer enters its second quarter phase at 2:39pm EST today. Second quarter Moons are gaining in light, as they sit 90° from the Sun. Think of light being shed on whatever particular situation or circumstance you are focused on at the moment. Now is the time for goal setting and committed action.

Mercury slows down starting today as it prepares to go retrograde. This “storm” before the actual retrograde period corresponds with the perceived movement of the planet moving less than 40 minutes of arc per day. While Mercury is in this state, retrograde-like energy may be picked up on for those highly sensitive or Mercury-dominant. Mercury will officially go retrograde on Sunday, April 9th at 7:14pm EST.
Wednesday, April 5th
Consider today the calm before the storm. With the Moon in Leo trine the Sun in Aries and steadily gaining light, bigger pieces of the picture may be coming clear. You may be steadily focused on the plan and keenly aware of how you can shine to the best of your ability.

Monumental energy is on stage today with Mars in Taurus trine Pluto in Capricorn at 12:01am EST. This earth trine with Mars and Pluto, our planets of power, drive, and transformation, sets us up with the fortitude needed to endure and make headway when Saturn goes retrograde at 1:06am EST (10:06pm PST). Saturn rules our sense of justice, regulations, government, discipline, and cautiousness. When retrograde, it calls on us to reevaluate how we perceive these constructs and the ways in which our perceptions impact our reality. Mars trine Pluto will make sure that our noses stay to the grindstone in examining what comes up.
Friday, April 7th
The Moon enters Virgo at 12:20am EST today, where we feel called to serve and depend on the acknowledgement or approval of others. The Sun in Aries opposes Jupiter in Libra for the only time this year at 5:39pm EST. This is generally a feel-good aspect with a serving of good vibes, but Jupiter is prone to exaggeration and overextension. Even if you haven’t double-booked yourself today, you may feel like you have.
Saturday, April 8th
Venus rx in Pisces squares up with Saturn rx in Sagittarius at 4:28pm EST today. This is a double negative, but not in the sense that the two retrogrades cancel one another out. Instead, they doubly affect each other. Now may not be the time for beginning new romantic or business endeavors. The planets need space to breath and reflect on their growth and development since their last retrograde period. The square will challenge this need, and perhaps throw circumstances your way that may seem too good to be true or lacking sufficient details.
