Full Moon in Scorpio - opposing Sun/Taurus

Full Moon enters Scorpio today (23rd) opposing Sun/Taurus and squaring Pluto/Aquarius. Extreme passions peak and then wane .. or shape divergent paths, as retrograde Mercury prepares to turn direct on Thursday - revealing the results of reconsideration and changed tactics in many issues, personal and non-personal.

ASTROLOGY IN BRIEF .. seductive drama, finite conclusions,

Jupiter and Uranus conjunct in Taurus until Monday as the Sun prepares to enter Taurus,  squaring Pluto by Sunday and Mercury remains retrograde in Aries: sudden endings, unique openings and flarings of past tensions from nowhere. Overdue deadlines come to finite conclusions. Last chances take leaps of faith, while some sustained intentions-desires see  breaks in the clouds and act precipitously. Luck & planning make interesting duos. Some of the drama is seductive and could be short lived, but not to be confused with resultant effects

April 2024 - the maverick month ...

the running order ....

Jupiter and Uranus are conjunct in Taurus between the 17th and 21st April. 

The Sun enters Taurus on the 20th of the month and squares Pluto in Aquarius. Whilst on the 24th of April the full moon is in Scorpio, ruled by Pluto. 

Mercury is presently retrograde in Aries until the 25th and has downed tools where connectivity is concerned. 

Mars in Pisces in the middle of April made a conjunction with Saturn, and then with Neptune in the last four days of the month: both with the potential to subterfuge taking some time to manifest .. if ever. Often with Neptune/Mars things are buried or disappeared forever.

The solar eclipse was in Aries on the 8th - and the energy of that is still having an effect.

Of this startling line up the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction is perhaps the one to watch. This aspect is possibly the single factor to triggering powerful climaxes and peaks - in small and larger ways. The shock factors manifest variously and in different areas, both personal and collective. 

Uranus disrupts and Jupiter enlarges … make your own conclusions. 

It tends to bring erratic energy and friction to an edge - sometimes with good motive or outcome, but that not always guaranteed.  

The upside is the positive element of change. One thing is certain in life: change must come. And never has change been so imminent and so necessary as now. 

The extremes posed by Pluto in Aquarius are not to be dismissed lightly. Pluto, the ruler of cycles, epochs, dominions of power and intrusive elements of physical dynamic.

The full moon in Scorpio, ruled by Pluto, can render financial and security-based issues finite at the point of arresting or pivotal power.  Cataclysmic shifts, pivotal peaks of momentum, and legislative procedure.  The movement of the planets affects all human behaviour, individual and collective. 

Those born under fixed Sun signs in the middle of the period (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius) may feel the strongest effects in personal ways. Though what we do as individuals tends to be like ripples in a pond, and to reverberate in those around us. 

Uranus is synonymous with independence, freedom, liberty … and chaos. The positions of world leaders and people in positions of power can not be unaffected by this transit of Jupiter/Uranus.

Jupiter exaggerates or magnifies everything it touches. Taurus is concerned with joy and optimism and fecundity, and also with positive evaluation. Uranus in Taurus tears through the status quo, carves up the norm and loves to disturb convention. Revolution, values, assets .. all gross to the mill of Uranus in Taurus. … but just as likely in some situations is the effect Jupiter often has of causing a ‘storm in a teacup’.  

We have never lived in such a disposable and throw away era. What was large and dramatic news one week, can be diminished by the next bit of news - whether real or fake - and do we know the difference? So it becomes a moot point just how much sticks or what is believed. And what is believed and taken onboard becomes the rule. We can not overlook the fact that we are conditioned and engineered nowadays by media, and by other generic factors that did not exist fifty years ago. If something is true for you, it may not be true for the next person

It might even be true to phrase it this way : what do you wish to be true for you?

Use the energies and do not be overwhelmed or ruled by them. On the world stage, we live in a huge illusion.

Mercury/Aries Ret with Solar Eclipse ... striving against the odds ..

Mercury is retrograde in Aries until the 25th of the month. Venus and the Sun are also in Aries, although in direct motion. Better not to begin a process just yet. It may go wildly askew. 

Whilst the solar eclipse on the 8th April in Aries will eliminate the poorer parts and the poorer players from any game, the final score is not yet in view. Aries is fiercely competitive and even those without planets in the sign can be affected by the contentious vibration, no matter how subtle. Let new plans or proposals unfold and allow the process to suggest itself by the third week of May when Mars enters the second decanate of the sign and the clarity of who stands where, and what is what, is fairly indisputable. 

The tempo or mood of the notions, negotiations and ideas until the end of April at least prepare the way - and in many cases the terms - for what has to be maintained or fought for. Mars enters Taurus, and Venus and Mercury enter Cancer in mid June, with Jupiter then in Gemini, bringing a better tolerance and flexibility, and an overall stability to show what can be trusted to sustain.

Past battles surfacing, historical grievances, old wounds reopening… Old friends and allies reappearing. Aborted ventures or missions resurrected. Second chances. Regressive memories.

Friday 5 April 2024


Moon/Pisces moves over Mars and Saturn today and argues with both Aquarius and Aries as this last sign welcomes the entrance of Venus. And Jupiter/Taurus moves closer to Uranus. Negating previous arrangements can be tricky, but some revelations or occurrences may bring the need to do so. History might well be re-written but there are those who will not let it fade. Subtle moves are possible and border almost on the invisible ..  until the third week of this month.

Tuesday 2 April 2024


Mercury is retrograde in Aries now until the 25th : slowing the gallop of the reckless, the over ambitious, the zealous .. deliberation, consideration or better focus on edgy & contentious situations. Can mean wrangles,  challenges, draining of resources, downing of tools, round in agitated circles. 

Moon/Capricorn today (2nd) is trine Jupiter/Taurus, as Mars/Pisces moves closer to Saturn - preparing to tackle frustration, stagnation or entrenchment of some long-standing problems - maybe mid week next.
