Daily Astrological Forecast, April 1–30, 2020
Wednesday, April 1
Today’s energy of 1 wants to start something, but, on the portal of yesterday’s conjunction from Mars the mover to Saturn the bureaucrat, we’re apt to feel stuck.
Moon in Cancer helps us relax and look for intuitive alternatives. She reaches her Second Quarter before dawn, favoring review of the intentions and goals seeded at last week’s New Moon and reorganizing to do follow-up, which will likely flow better this weekend as the Mars-Saturn connection lasts a few days,
At 12-13 Cancer, the Sabian symbol says:
A HAND WITH PROMIENT THUMB IS HELD OUT RECEPTIVELY. Strong, active and self-certain will, or persistent yet blind plunging into reality. Freedom from soft illusions.
Morning and midday are best for connections with others -particularly natural and spiritual family. A trine from Moon to Mercury in sensitive Pisces also favors empathetic listening, angel connections and prayers to fuel compassion.
With a lunar trine to Neptune, spiritual activities continue to flow this evening, as does visualization and enjoying music or a film. Communications may become confusing.
Love flows through my mind and heart, harmonizing my thoughts and connections now.
Thursday, April 2
This is a people morning. Moon in sensitive Cancer sextiles sweet Venus in Taurus, earth sign of its rule. Combine love, practicality, and pleasure by having brunch with someone special, entertaining family, searching for new living quarters, romancing someone, or contacting people for business or cuddlies (even if they have to be at a distance).
Then, talk about a quarantine afternoon! At 11:26 am (2:26 ET), the cuddlies fade, as Moon enters strong Leo and proceeds to clash with pugnacious Mars, guilt-tripper Saturn and rebel Uranus! Postpone all but the most essential communications for another time. Focus on constructive independent activities like journaling, making a dream board, taking a steam bath, scrubbing your skin, getting low-key exercise, pulling weeds, or designing something.
A late trine from Moon to Chiron makes our minds fertile for healing dreams.
Affirmation to program dreams for healing:
My inner self moves toward wholeness and generates healing dreams, now and always.
Friday, April 3
Moon in Leo combines with today’s Venusian numerology of 3, to make this morning good for creative writing or art. Or, focus on lifting someone’s spirits.
At 12:29 pm (3:29 ET), Moon goes VOC on a trine to Sun. Mercury the messenger joins Neptune, planet of mysteries, enriching today’s creative vibrations and favoring reading or writing fiction. This is a romantic combination, but there could be confusion. It’s best not to try to force agreements or practical concerns. Do what you can, with a light touch. Have an informal tea party just for fun.
I don’t need to worry, I trust the force of good that keeps my good flowing, now and always.
Saturday, April 4
Use the VOC Moon in Leo to take most of the day off and do something to please your inner child.
At 2:18 pm (5:18), Moon enters productive Virgo, joining today’s constructive numerology of 4 and facilitating excellent results from today’s two major transits: sweet Venus in trine to Saturn and expansive Jupiter in conjunction to empowering Pluto.
This is a great combination for business, political initiatives and building something involving others, anything from a negotiation to a reconciliation or decision to formalize your love-tie.
Knock and it shall be opened, ask and you shall receive, communicate and you shall be heard.
I release attachment to the approval of others and act on my vision now.
Sunday, April 5
Still on the doorstep of yesterday’s transits, today’s Moon in Virgo makes for a nerdy but potentially productive Sunday.
Virgo suggests that we declutter our space and papers, take a hot bath, scrub our skin, and do deep breathing to detox. Whatever else you do, devote at least some time to focus on a cause, project or relationship that’s close to your heart.
Guardian Angel, please keep me focused on what’s close to my heart, now and always.
Monday, April 6
If you have to get something important done, try doing it early, in resonance with Moon’s trine to Pluto that facilitates a quantum leap in something related to work or an influential contact. Act before 6:29 am (9:29 ET), when Luna goes VOC in Virgo.
At 2:16 pm, Moon enters Libra, making nice harmonies the rest of this afternoon. It’s not enough to take the edge off tomorrow’s square from bellicose Mars to free-spirit Uranus, however. This square creates tensions accentuated by tomorrow’s Full Moon.
If you have to connect with others, pour on the diplomacy and avoid unnecessary fights. What can go well are independent creative activities, therapy, using affirmations, and a good read.
Goddess Kwan Yin, please fuse your orchid-heart of compassion with mine and ignite my love for myself and others now.
Tuesday, April 7
With pugnacious Mars squaring rebel Uranus and a Libra Full Moon, this is an intense day. Avoid direct confrontations or arguments. Luna makes a quincunx to Neptune, an influence that favors art, psychic connections and spiritual healing, but can bring confusion in alliances.
Take special care while driving or using machinery, knives or sharp implements. Put new commitments on hold for now, but do apply the sextile from Mercury to Jupiter and Pluto to researching, analyzing and communicating something important. This aspect also favors key, one-on-one communications, teaching and promotional activities.
Think things through, consider the good of all involved and then knock on a key door, contact a potential ally, or promote something related to business or spirituality. In the face of apparent confusion or challenge, be aware of your feelings, journal, go to therapy, consult the angels, but save direct tussles for a less explosive day.
The Sabian symbol for 18-19 Libra says:
ROBBERS ARE HIDING READY TO ATTACK HEAVILY ARMED CARAVAN. Protest against the perpetuation of unearned social privileges and wealth. Repudiation of bondage. Challenge to custom.
Archangel Michael, please wield your sword and cut me free from unconscious attachments to being manipulated. Please free humanity from unconscious attachment to mass manipulation, now and always.
Wednesday, April 8
With Mars sextile Chiron in Aries, today is good for therapy and dream interpretation.
At 5:50 am (8:50 ET), Moon goes VOC. Save important contacts and actions for after 1:17 pm (4:17 ET), when she enters Scorpio. Get into your most harmonious possible mode, because at 3:03 pm (6:03 ET), Luna begins a series of tense aspects with heavies Saturn, Uranus and Mars.
This gives us just under two harmonious hours to use today’s successful numerology of 8 in positive Scorpio initiatives like making love, doing research, making an important decision, setting a long-range plan in motion, solving a problem, leasing or renting property.
From 3:03 on, work on forgiveness, avoid jealousy, being suspicious or brooding over an offense that wasn’t intended personally.
I declare myself free from resentments and attachments and give thanks for the new doors of good that open for me now.
Thursday, April 9
If you can, sleep in and rest to stay up for tonight’s positive portal.
Yesterday’s tensions continue through most of today. Today’s numerology of 9 favors reading or writing something philosophical, metaphysical study and activities, teaching and altruism.
The starwaves lighten up around 5:00 pm (8:00 ET), when we can begin to make progress towards a key goal, make a life-altering decision, sign a document, close a deal, make a discreet enquiry, or lease or rent property. But we’re still within earshot of Tuesday’s intense lunation: don your dark glasses and keep a low profile.
If you’re up to use them, positive transits keep our luck bright throughout the night.
Guardian Angel, please direct me to use my time wisely and with courage now.
Friday, April 10
This is a day worth rising for. Today’s numerology of 1 favors pioneering actions and activities, while Moon in courageous Scorpio makes sextiles to Jupiter and Pluto in constructive Capricorn. We can solve a problem or make headway on something we felt stuck on. Key contacts and promotions are also favored.
Take a break at 12:35 pm (3:35 ET), when Moon goes VOC, entering Sagittarius at 1:36 (4:36 ET), where she moves to sextile Saturn the builder. We can work on a legal matter, trade, correspondence or something requiring diplomacy. Take or give a class or seminar, hold a meeting, promote something, lend or borrow money. This evening: socialize, meet new people.
After Mercury’s long, confusing stay in Pisces, at 9:48 pm (12:48 am ET), the messenger planet enters Aries. Thought processes and communications suddenly become clearer.
Nothing can keep Spirit from manifesting a solution for this situation now.
Saturday, April 11
This is a good day for teaching, studying, working, writing or promoting something. Moon in enthusiastic Sag makes a sextile to Mars; we can act assertively and touch the public.
Another sextile—from Mercury in assertive Aries to Saturn in brilliant Aquarius—is great for communications involving work, asking for what we want, organizing information or writing, putting together a presentation, or working on ideas in order to express them in a more refined manner.
Before reaching out, try harmonizing your thoughts. Remember: today’s numerology of 11 opens a portal for angels to use our vibrations of loving kindness to lift the planetary vibration.
I desire for all being the highest and best good, and this vibration fuels the work of angels now.
Sunday, April 12
This morning, Moon goes VOC in Sagittarius, where it will be most of the day and continues to perform.
Enjoy the party spirit—have an egg-hunt or another local adventure, enjoy friends or a humorous movie, plan a trip, spend time outdoors, meet someone new. Besides favoring Easter festivities, today is also good for promoting something and for motivating, teaching, or studying.
Moon enters Capricorn at 5:05 pm (8:05 ET). Organize work, or an area of your life that’s become scattered, tend the family business, act responsibly, listen and learn, or work on a goal.
I bless the conscious life that rises around the planet now.
Monday, April 13
With today’s constructive numerology of 4 and Moon in Capricorn on the last day of her Third Quarter, we can put in the extra hours to make practical headway. Implement a new way to do business, do something requiring sacrifice, work on business or your career, set down rules and guidelines.
People contacts go better after 8:10 am (11:10ET), when Moon makes a quincunx to Venus, planet of love, who sweetens our connections.
By around 4:00 pm (7:00 ET) we’ll start feeling the effects of tomorrow’s square from Sun to Pluto. Avoid getting depressed or stuck in a power struggle. If you meet with resistance, don’t force things.
My life is under spiritual law, so it flows in perfect order now.
Tuesday, April 14
At 4:07 am, Sun in assertive Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn, sign of the boss. Like the Sun, today’s numerology of 5 is also ruled by the planet Mars. This aspect can fuel frustration and power struggles. Schedule a break to meditate, attend therapy or a support group or consult with a coach about your goals (do this virtually if necessary).
At 3:56 pm (6:56 ET), Moon reaches her Fourth Quarter in Capricorn, getting us back on productive track until 4:47 pm (7:47 ET), when she goes VOC for the rest of the day. At 25-26 Capricorn, the Sabian symbol describes:
A NATURE SPIRIT DANCING ON THE IRIDESCENT MIST OF A WATERFALL. The ability to perceive the hidden and creative spirit of natural phenomena…. Water binds all living cells in a wholesome interplay… it symbolizes the constant flow of vital energies… the fluidity of… emotional nature and of love…. OCCULT ENERGY.
Divine love flows pours over the planet, cleansing, harmonizing and healing all life now.
Wednesday, April 15
Moon enters Aquarius in the wee hours. Use her early morning encounter with structured Saturn to organize the day.
Then, include some downtime, journaling, a good read or a visit to the therapist, while Sun’s square to big-guy Jupiter (3:59 am PT; 6:59 am ET) has a chance to cool off. Not that this aspect is bad. Anything involving Jupiter has a bright side. However, Jupiter is conjunct Pluto, fueling incendiary potentials.
The energies soften by 3:41 pm (7:41 ET), when Moon sextiles Mercury the messenger, followed by a trine to charming Venus. This afternoon and evening are good for communications and people connections for altruism, friendship, activism, a creative endeavor or a cause.
The Same Mind that knows the best and highest connections for me also knows how to guide me to them and works to do this now.
Thursday, April 16
Today’s intelligent numerology of 7 compliments Moon in brilliant Aquarius, accenting our acuity.
During the Fourth Quarter Moon time, focus on finishing something: an invention, a computer purchase, intellectual work. Or research and explore options, look into an impending move or career change, do armchair activism, and look at how things affect your best interests.
Infinite Intelligence provides me with all the information I need and awakens my inner wisdom now.
Friday, April 17
With Moon VOC in Aquarius, morning is best for using affirmations, journaling or a good read.
After Luna enters Pisces at 11:29 am (2:29 pm ET), the powerful numerology of today’s number 8 facilitates success. Mercury the messenger sextiles sweet and loving Venus, making the rest of the day great for people connections of all kinds. Express your love, share your ideas, use positive affirmations, work on creative writing.
My words are not just ideas, they’re seeds of power I plant with care, now and always.
Saturday, April 18
Moon in Pisces connects with innovative Uranus and Venus the beautifier, making morning propitious for a shamanic journey, or a project involving imagination, creativity, or art. Write a proposal or draw up a contract. Or declutter space and emotions: get rid of obsolete belongings and release resentments and attachments.
By afternoon, we’ll be feeling the force of Mercury’s sextile to assertive Mars. Speak for a cause, set a limit, promote something, close a deal.
I am worthy of life’s opportunities and I act to consolidate them now.
Sunday, April 19
After its stint in the dynamic sign of Aries, at 7:45 am (11:45 ET), Sun enters abundant Taurus. This begins a solar month of getting our bearings and finding solutions for prosperity and supply.
Still in resonance with Mercury’s sextiles to Venus and Mars, Moon in creative Pisces accents intuition and creativity, favoring people connections. She makes sextiles to Pluto and Jupiter, excellent for doing business, reaching a powerful contact, broadening a market, or for that matter anything that requires major change.
This is also a good day to review a visualization practice, get rid of an obsolete treasure map or dreamboard, and begin to gather materials to make a treasure map for abundance at the upcoming New Moon in Taurus (exact next Wednesday).
I am powerful agent of universal good, and I act in that certainty now.
Monday, April 20
Balsamic Moon enters courageous Aries in the wee hours and sextiles executive Saturn this morning. We can set a limit, move to consolidate something, exert leadership, unclutter, collect a debt, or push through resistance to organize or finish something.
At 1:55 pm (4:55 ET), Moon joins Chiron, the wounded healer. Also this afternoon, we are starting to feel the effects of a midnight square from Sun to taskmaster Saturn. Avoid pushing yourself or others, getting into an unnecessary argument or taking things personally. Journal, go to therapy, work on a health issue, give healing attention to a dear one or someone in need, or do something that strengthens your self-esteem.
I honor myself and I honor the essential self of all beings now.
Tuesday, April 21
The energy of Moon in outgoing Aries in sextile to Venus and Mars makes this a good morning for romance or reaching out to someone whom we love or can help.
A square from Sun to hard-nosed Saturn can bring out Aries’ more bellicose side; stick to harmonious connections with easy-going people and leave potentially touchy situations for next week.
Moon also joins Mercury, suggesting that in therapy, with a group or in a journal, we can get in touch with feelings and needs and write them down for clarity and later action.
Guardian Angel (or spirit guide), please put me in touch with my true needs and direct me to express them at the right time, in the right way.
Wednesday, April 22
With Moon VOC in Aries, try taking a break this morning to get in touch with your authentic voice, desires and self. Journal, spend time in the garden or outdoors.
Save key actions for after 12:36 pm (3:36 ET), when Moon enters prosperous Taurus, sign of her exaltation. Then, organize business and money concerns, enjoy nature, work on something that requires lasting results, open an account or contract a new bank service, reorganize your stock portfolio.
At 3:59 pm (6:59 ET), Moon squares Saturn, an aspect that can lead to guilt trips, so try focusing on organizing work, work or living spaces, or other independent activities.
At 7:26 pm (10:26 ET), Moon becomes New in Taurus. At 3-4 Taurus, the Sabian symbol says:
THE POT OF GOLD AT THE END OF THE RAINBOW… Riches that come from linking the celestial and the earthly nature… In all mythologies the rainbow expresses a linking process—or the bridge used by divine beings to communicate with mortals… the rainbow… is a source of symbolic, universally valid wealth. All wealth… comes from “commerce”; i.e. from the commingling of minds and from the contracts, and thus is based on faith and the validity of a promise.
This evocative symbol points to spiritual assistance and awareness of abundance. Read about the goddess connections to the rainbow and wealth in our March General Influences.
The present portal calls us to lift our minds with the spiritual aspect of prosperity. Moon conjunct Uranus signals this lunation as a special trigger to Uranus’ mission as the planet of freedom transits the sign of security. This is the time to strengthen our powers of manifestation, releasing the limitations of a merely material take on financial supply. Magical options for this lunation include:
- Make a written pact with your higher self to open to divine abundance
- Make a treasure map, vision board or similar tool to visualize wealth and success in something related to the list below. Review radically new ways to generate income that are not harmful to the planet We’ve prepared a list of Uranus-centered professional and investment options that are worth researching and developing. We invite you to review them and see if they relate to your abilities, interests or something you would like to seed as an intention at this New Prosperity-New Moon:
Thursday, April 23
Still on the portal of yesterday’s lunation, Moon perfects her conjunction to Uranus. We are moved by an urge for physical and financial freedom. If your movement seems limited, this is the time to move mentally, shifting into a vision of financial freedom and abundance.
Complete your vision board and continue to clarify and journal about your financial options. Take a practical step to research or move toward your preferred option/s. Other propitious activities:
- Write a letter to Congress
- Do armchair activism to benefit the people and nature
- Enjoy food, nature and art
- Listen to or make music
- Do business
- Take care of money
- Lease or rent property
- Take on new staff
- Remodel or decorate
- Go out with someone new (keeping social distance)
Angels of supply, please direct me in new, better ways of producing and receiving financial abundance now.
Friday, April 24
Today’s numerology of 6—of protection, bonhomie and abundance—blends beautifully with Moon exalted in Taurus and trining Pluto and Jupiter in constructive Capricorn. Still on the portal of the Taurus New Moon, this is a gem of a morning for doing anything favored by the sign of the bull. Check yesterday’s list, and add spicing up your love life, promotion, connection with someone influential, and artistic pursuits.
Afternoon and evening influences are also enriching, with a warning to watch for power struggles as we build towards a midnight square from Mercury the messenger to intense Pluto, which is preparing to station retrograde. This aspect does favor deep thinking and research and uncovering a secret, particularly for finance or business.
I have a direct connection with the infinite source, and my supply flows freely through infinite channels now.
Saturday, April 25
Pluto the powerful stations to retrograde, beginning a cycle that facilitates inner healing and will last through early October. Particularly up for review are wounds in relation to our power, authority, discipline, order and success. You can check your natal chart to see the where you may be experiencing these dynamics at and around 25 degrees Capricorn. See our Astrological Influences section for more details.
With Moon in loquacious Gemini and ruler Mercury connecting with Jupiter, afternoon particularly favors communication and promotion. We can also play a table game, chat with colleagues or siblings or just have fun. Avoid gossip and unnecessary arguments.
I am ready to walk my path of power, and I receive the guidance and resources that flow to support me now.
Sunday, April 26
Themes of change continue to play out as Sun catches up to Uranus. We can each can come up with new ways of fulfilling our mission.
This morning, Moon in communicative Gemini harmonizes with Venus; personal connections go well. Be on the watch for a propensity towards tantrums. If they happen to someone else, don’t take it personally.
At 12:55 pm (3:55 ET), Moon trines Mars. We may be moved to fight for a cause or defend a loved one. Still in orb of Sun’s conjunction to Uranus, this aspect may push us into a rebellious mode. Choose your fights carefully.
A few hours later, a square from Moon to Neptune may bring confusion but it favors creative and spiritual pursuits.
I am infinite being, naturally connected with the ideas that flow from the Divine Mind to me, now and always.
Monday, April 27
This morning Moon, still in communicative Gemini, connects with Jupiter. Rise early and write to an angel. Communication, teaching and learning, publicity and sales go well until 10:00 am (1:00 pm ET), when Moon goes VOC.
Luna enters Cancer at 10:28 am (1:28 pm ET), giving us a few good hours to work on personal growth and self-empowerment, embark on a new course of metaphysical study, bless our home, express compassion, or attend directly to home, mother, or family.
At 1:54 pm (4:54 ET), the cuddlies dissolve as Moon makes a tense aspect to Saturn. Work independently on practical concerns or business, get yourself organized. Have a good movie as back-up to avoid getting moody or indulging a guilt trip.
Infinite Good touches me through everything, and that which has been done against me helps me now.
Tuesday, April 28
Moon in Cancer fuels creativity. A square from Mercury in stubborn Taurus to stiff Saturn in opinionated Aquarius can lead to arguments and delays. Focus on independent activities at home and for work, consult intuition, read a good novel or self-help book.
When communicating with others, give things the light touch and avoid an unnecessary argument.
Only divine ideas flow through my mind, so my thoughts are helpful, healing and luminous, now and always.
Wednesday, April 29
This morning, Moon in touchy Cancer makes tense aspects. Stay in bed, have a good read, enjoy the yard or the nicest spot in your home.
At 12:29 pm (3:29 ET), she goes VOC. In Cancer, she still performs and fortunately improves on a contact with Jupiter. It’s a great time to work on promotions and sales, entertaining family, spiritual practice, sharing compassion, empathy and munchies, searching for new living quarters (virtually), and cuddling with your honey.
At 6:06 pm (9:06 ET), Moon enters Leo. Play table games or do something creative.
Guardian Angel, please inspire me to love and appreciate my home and dear ones, now and always.
Thursday, April 30
This morning, Moon in Leo trines Chiron, making this the ideal time to write or draw about our dreams, or go to therapy.
Mental Mercury joins brilliant Uranus, triggering our intuition and activating our genius. Research and writing go well, and an apparently elusive contact may suddenly respond.
At 1:38 pm (4:38 ET), Moon reaches her Second Quarter, inviting us to review our progress and application on intentions seeded at last week’s New Moon. The Sabian symbol for Second Quarter Moon at 10-11 Aries says:
THE RULER OF A NATION. The power resulting from the collective integration for a desire for order… CENTRALIZATION OF POWER at the level of a rigidly structured consciousness.
My progress cannot be limited; my progress cannot be stopped. Spirit doesn’t limit or stop me and Spirit doesn’t make me depend on people or conditions for my progress. Spirit lifts me up and with Its almighty hand lifts me to my best place, with the best people, the best activity and the best financial income now.
