Mercury takes its hand at going retrograde today at 7:14pm EST, adding to the retrograde party already being attended by Venus and Saturn. When Mercury goes retrograde, communication gaps often present themselves in the form of travel disruptions, failed contracts, and general misinterpretations. Mercury is forced to slow down during this period, which is not exactly its comfort zone. This can result in deeper conversations and more time spent evaluating information as opposed to jumping to conclusions or the next best thing (true to mercurial fashion). With a trio of retrograde planets in the mix, sensitivities in general may be heightened, and we may become more aware of things we were not focused on before.

The Moon joins Jupiter today at 6:58pm, opening spiritual pathways from which we can grow and discover new wisdom through experience. The meetup of these two planets can sometimes lend to sugarcoating circumstances. Jupiter is the planet of wisdom, and with Mercury being retrograde, be aware of how your words, however short or exaggerated, might play into how far you take your emotional expression. Are you walking the walk or just talking the talk?
Tuesday, April 11th
The Full Moon in Libra is at her peak at 2:08am EST, illuminating the shadows we’ve been hiding from, but also the fruits of our labor. This Full Moon’s emphasis is on change through challenges, with Uranus being only 2° from the Sun and more or less opposing the Moon. Uranus’s influence stresses progressive action, so creative and possibly erratic influences and ideas will be flowing with no obstruction. The Moon enters Scorpio later in the day at 6:42pm EST, adding to the probing and pondering that the Full Moon has initiated.
Wednesday, April 12th
The Moon in Scorpio opposes Mercury rx in Taurus at 3:40am EST, which may prove for a difficult or challenging day. The two fastests bodies of the zodiac are in two fixed signs, and with Mercury being retrograde, this recipe can be quite difficult. Stop and go is the theme for today. The Moon trines Neptune in Pisces later at 8:48pm EST, which may take the edge off of the stress and anxiety of the day.
Thursday, April 13th
The Moon in Scorpio is opposite Mars in Taurus at 8:04pm EST, which calls for another rocky day, and this time emotionally. Emotional outbursts or I’ve-had-it moments may surface today, especially since Venus, the dispositor of Mars in Taurus, is still retrograde and conjunct Chiron in Pisces, another emotionally-influenced planetary body and sign.
Friday, April 14th
The Sun and Uranus meet up for their yearly encounter at 1:30am EST, potentially adding to the chaos of the past several days. Change may feel afoot, which is both exciting and scary. This is the vibe that the merging of these two bodies will create. The Moon enters Sagittarius today at 6:27am EST, calling us to act upon personal wisdom and justice.
Saturday, April 15th
Venus goes direct today at 6:18am EST! Anyone affected by emotional or romantic hardship will be relieved to know that Venus is back to her regular self. Her impact extends to Mercury, Mars (both in Taurus), and Jupiter (in Libra), creating more fluid energy flow to and from those planets. You may notice blockages lift in areas where your personal chart is affected, and there will also be a sense of overall well-being and creativity today as Venus gets her groove back.
