How the PLANETS Move in April 2022

How the PLANETS Move in April 2022

Overarching Astrological Monthly Themes

Each month there are different themes brought forward as the celestial bodies dance around the Sun.

These movements create a never-ending rhythm of cosmic energy shifts that I have interpreted for you.

Time Zone

Note, I use Universal Time for all our horoscope work to be inclusive and to cater for everyone around the globe.

If you live West of the Greenwich meridian the dates may be the day before and if you live east of Greenwich these dates maybe the day afterwards.

Planets

As the planets move through the zodiac, they change signs and adjust their direction.

Each planet has a couple of signs that they really love to be in and with which they resonate well.

You know yourself you may prefer to visit Aunt Agatha’s place, because you feel welcome there.

The planets also have a few signs that are difficult for them to be their best.

Maybe you don’t like visiting Aunt Alex’s place because you feel stifled or restricted in some way.

This is how the planets are as well.

These shifts of planetary energy are what quality astrologers consider.

Moon

I also take a closer look at the Moon and pay close attention to the New Moon and Full Moon each month.

In April there are two New Moons, one early in the month, and one towards the end of the month.

The second New Moon is actually a solar eclipse.

April 2022 Horoscope Overview

April 1st – Aries New Moon

The first New Moon of April occurs at 11º 31′ Aries.

This will affect anyone who has a birthday on March 31st April 1st or 2nd.

Interpretation

A New Moon is always a time to start something fresh.

New moons effects usually last for 30 days until the next new moon so this gives you a one-month window to get something done.

The nature of the new moon will be shown by the sign in which it is found in this month the first new moon is in Aries.

Interpretation

Challenge yourself to start something fresh and exciting.

April 5th – Venus enters Pisces

Essential Dignity

Venus is exalted in Pisces which means it gets +4 for Essential Dignity.

It also means that Venus is a welcome guest in Pisces and Venus’ attributes will work well in this sign.

Interpretation

Intuitively, love and money are highlighted now.

April 11th – Mercury enters Taurus

Interpretation

Mercury is the planet to do with contacts connections conversations and trade.

Taurus is the sign of reliability things being solid and creating foundations. It is also the sign to do with money.

This suggests that this will be a good time to negotiate financial deals as it is more likely to favor the buyer than the seller at this time.

Conversations around establishing a base of some form.

April 12th – Jupiter conjoins Neptune

Who this will affect

This will affect anyone with a birthday on 13th, 14th or 15th of March as the conjunction will actually occur on your natal Sun.

This means that the Jupiter conjunct Neptune will be part of your solar return complex for the whole of the next year.

See more on solar returns here.

Interpretation

As Jupiter conjoins Neptune it creates the beginning of and you synodic cycle and you can find out more about that on this link.

Jupiter is only together with Neptune once in every 13 years and we are fortunate to have it in 2022 in the sign of Pisces.

Both planets are rulers of Pisces.

Their energies can work well in this sign this particular combination really supports Pisces people in general.

This will be a great time for spiritual or artistic growth and luck.

April 15th – Mars enters Pisces

Interpretation

Mars is the planet of energy, competition and where you are active.

I always say this is the planet that gets you off the couch where you will actively go and do something.

And as we can see there’s been quite a lot of pressure on the sign of Pisces and as Mars enters Pisces to join with Jupiter, Neptune and Venus, it’s adding a lot more activity, friction and heat to the sign.

Wherever this conjunction occurs in your chart will be a hive of activity this month.

This will be a good time to expand energy towards nuance and the unseen.

April 16th – Libra Full Moon

Who this will Affect

This full moon will affect anyone with a birthday on October the 19th, 20th or 21st as it will be built into your solar return chart for the next 12 months.

Interpretation

At a full moon the light of the Moon is the brightest that it gets drawing the month. And symbolically this shines a light in all the nooks and crannies of the situation.

In the sign of Libra, which has a lot to do with your relationships, your marriage and even business relationships with this light of this Moon you are able to see exactly what’s going on in the corners.

You may not agree with everything you see but this is a time when you are more likely to say you can accept that person’s flaws and continue on.

This is a time when you can clearly see everything at its full fruition and exactly who the person is that you have partnered up with.

Anticipate clarity around your relationship issues.

April 20th – The Sun enters Taurus

Interpretation

Spotlight on producing solid results.

April 29th – Pluto Stations Retrograde

Pluto will be retrograde this year between April and October from 28º to 26 º of Capricorn. Pluto has been in Capricorn for many years and it stations retrograde every single year.

The time of the station is important.

Who this will Affect

This will affect anyone with a birthday on January the 18th, 19th or 20th as the station will conjoin your Sun and be part of your solar return complex.

Interpretation

Reassess and purge unwanted clutter, situations and people.

April 29th – Mercury enters Gemini

Essential dignity

Mercury gains essential dignity with a +5 as Mercury rules the sign of Gemini the Twins.

Interpretation

Listen to your thoughts, contacts and ideas and journal your brilliance now.

April 30th – Solar Eclipse

This solar eclipse is at 10 degrees 28’ Taurus and it occurs at the north node.

North Node

The north node is a place where things are coming to us like when the tide comes in on the beach and it brings goodies for us.

Who this will affect

This will affect anyone with a birthday on April the 30th or May the 1st and 2nd.

And people with these birthdays will have this solar eclipse built into their solar return chart for the next 12 months.

For everyone else the influences last is likely to last for three months.

Interpretation

Build and acquire what you need for your future now.

Conclusion

We have covered all the planetary ingresses which are the planet’s changing signs, all the stations admittedly there’s only one this month and the lunations which are the New and the Full Moons.

Of course there are many other things that could be looked at in the astrology of the month, but this is your April overview for 2022.

 

Love,

The Yod – Major Aspect Pattern

The Yod – Major Aspect Pattern

A Yod is an astrological planetary configuration also know as a major aspect pattern which is formed when three planets line-up in a particular way.

A yod looks like a triangle. See image.

This week the three planets in the current yod are Jupiter in Gemini, Saturn in Scorpio and Pluto in Capricorn.

You can also refer to this current pattern as a Jupiter Yod because Jupiter is the focal planet.

Color of the Year 2022

Color of the Year 2022

Pantone – the Color People

Color of the Year

Towards the end of each year, Pantone announces a new color for the forthcoming year.

The publication of the Color of the Year is highly anticipated, mainly by artists, graphic designers, trend setters and the New Age community.

Because this is such a big deal in the world of color, the color which Pantone chooses usually invokes the potential that each New Year heralds.

As someone who loves astro art and color in general I find this interesting.

2022 Veri Peri

Periwinkles

The Pantone color of the year for 2022 is Veri Peri a newly created periwinkle blue/purple.

Periwinkles are small purple/blue flowers in a hue that is called periwinkle.

Colors

Rainbow Colors

The seven colors of the rainbow or spectrum are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

Chakra Colors

The seven chakras are the root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye and crown chakras.

The chakras are related to the spectrum colors thus:

Red – root chakra

Orange – sacral chakra

Yellow – solar plexus chakra

Green – heart chakra

Blue – throat chakra

Indigo – third eye chakra

Violet – crown chakra

Crown Chakra

Anyone familiar with chakras will know that the Veri Peri color, although referred to as blue, is related the violet of the crown chakra which indicates the highest form of consciousness raising.

This bodes well for everyone who is on a conscious raising journey and even those people who aren’t who choose Veri Peri with which to surround themselves.

Aquarius

Astrologically the colors are related to the signs.

The 2022 color of the year seems to be associated with the sign of the Water Bearer, Aquarius.

Aquarius is associated with many things one of which is that it is a sign of the people this energy can be rebellious in the name of the common good.

Saturn is presently in Aquarius. It is well placed and in dignity as the ruler of the sign for the whole of 2022.

Color Theory and Healing

That color can influence us is well documented and many practitioners will use color to invoke emotional, spiritual and even physical healing.

2022 Potential

I wonder how the choice for this year’s Pantone Color of the Year will unfold during the next 12 months for the world.

Astro Journal Flip Through December 2021

Astro Journal Flip Through December 2021

Introduction

I’m sharing with you my December Astro Journal flip through.

I’ve been journaling for years and I do dabble with all sorts of journals spreads, but this month I got a bit more organized and have got some images to show you of the journal pages I created for December 2021.

Cover Page

Astro Info

This page shows all the important astrological ingresses, lunar phases and planetary retrogrades for the month.

I also draw the zodiac in the natural position with Aries at the Ascendant point.

Sign Colors

You’ll notice that I colour my zodiac signs in specific colours and these are related to the colour wheel.

The fire signs are the primary colours, so Aries is red, Leo is yellow and Sagittarius is blue.

The air signs are the secondary colours so Gemini is orange, Libra is green and Aquarius is violet.

Then the earth and water signs become the tertiary colours, so we have Taurus is tangerine Cancer is apricot, Virgo is chartreuse or lime green, Scorpio is turquoise, Capricorn is purple and Pisces is magenta.

Ingresses

On the outer ring I show how all the planets move during December.

Many planets stay in the same sign, some planets change signs and one planet is stations retrograde.

Main Lunar Phases

I also indicate the four main Lunar phases of New Moon, First Quarter, Full Moon and Last Quarter.

Yule

Wheel of the Year

My Yule page is an acknowledgement of the wheel of the year as the Sun enters Capricorn on December 21 we are at the solstice.

I have the symbol for Yule in the top left and on the top right has an oakleaf to symbolize the movement from the Holly King to the Oak King which happens on Yule.

Yule and the solstice is the actual beginning of the wheel of the year.

Yule Log

It’s the dead of winter. In my drawing that I have a yule log burning in the fire. The idea is that you get one long big tree which is your you’ll log and you stick the fat and into the fireplace and you liked it on December 21 and as it slowly burns you push the tree into the great and I delete should be in for at least 12 days.

Dark to Light

Yule is a time where we are symbolizing the shift from the dark and we start to slowly move into the light.

This time of the year is symbolized by candles the fire and brightness.

Saturnalia

December 21st is the shortest day of the year it is also known as the Roman festival of Saturnalia.

Saturn rules Capricorn so it all fits in quite neatly.

Month Calendar Full Page Spread

The monthly full spread is where I will put all my student classes and events.

It also works as a content calendar for my videos and blogs.

I have colored in every planetary movement and the Moon’s phases.

Jupiter did move into Pisces earlier in the year and then retrograded back into Aquarius, but now it has finally moved and Pisces and will remain there for the next year.

Jupiter is the traditional ruler of Pisces and it is very comfortable in the sign of the Fish.

This movement of planetary energy will bring:

  • A higher awareness of your spiritual journey.
