Aquarius - April 2019
Hey Aquarius! Money is in mind for savvy water-carriers in April, as Mercury sets you thinking about your cash flow! He will be passing through your financial sector until the 17th, and will spend his time here organising your accounts and making sure all your paperwork is up to date. It’s an excellent time for tackling financial conundrums or working out how to manage your money better. Neptune continues his meander through this part of your chart, so you still may find yourself buffering against the confusing impracticality he generates, but these two planets will be working well together between the 1st and 10th, a positive period for dreaming up imaginative ways to make some extra cash. Mercury’s square with Jupiter between the 6th and 17th will prove more of a challenge, creating extra expenditure around social gatherings with friends or activities with your children.
Saturn slows down his pace this month in preparation for a direction change on the 30th, and it could be a frustrating time in terms of spiritual peace and growth, as calming your thoughts and focussing on what is important, become difficult processes all of a sudden. Worries and fears may creep back in to your conscious mind, which is a perfectly natural process with this transit. Nonetheless this could cause you some concern, particularly if you suffer from depression or anxiety. The key here is not to try too hard to keep on top of everything, relax and be kind to yourself. Saturn is about to collide with the Moon’s nodes, in a connection which will last until late November, and this is a highly karmic collection of energies which will push you to work on your psychic self, and enhance your spiritual awareness. You may find you come across people, seemingly by coincidence, who can help guide you on this journey. These people have come to you for a reason and have something significant to teach you.
The new Moon of the 5th could reveal a secret, as information comes to a light about a friend or colleague which makes you see them from a whole new perspective. The Sun squaring Pluto during the days of the 6th to 19th is a tricky aspect in which you will be extra sensitive to others’ motivations and intentions, and you will easily pick up on changes in atmosphere within your social group. People talking behind hands, about you or a situation you are involved in, is a likely experience for you now, and it’s up to you whether you confront these people or let the moment pass. The Moon cycle culminates in a full Moon in your house of travel and higher education on the 19th, a time for thinking seriously about how you can enhance your knowledge of the universe and learn something new about the world.
Leisure activities will receive an energy boost from Mars throughout April, and you may find your pastimes naturally take a more energetic turn now, as friends or family members engage you in some kind of athletic activity! You will feel adventurous under Mars’s direction, and will be willing to try new things, the more exciting the better. Take care not to cut corners on safety because of impatience to get moving. Mars and Neptune do clash after the 19th, however, a confusing collection of energies which could cause some issues around payment for leisure pursuits. Make sure you have read the small print and know exactly what is and isn’t included in your activities, or you could be hit with an unexpected bill for hidden extras. Have a brilliant April!
