Before we get to this week’s forecast, please know:

If you missed my Forecasting Forum last week, and still would like to learn how to align yourself with the current energies, feel free to get the mp4-video presentation “Eclipse season & Pluto Station, April – May 2022” — and see how this relates to your own Birth Chart.

    • The upcoming Eclipses (exact on April 30th & May 16th, 2022) signifies a new beginning.
    • It is the beginning of a 6 months Eclipse cycle (until Oct. 25th, 2022)
    • What evolutionary upgrade are you getting? What’s unfolding over the next 6 months?
    • Where are you looking to make some changes in your life?
    • How will this Eclipse season impact people with planets or points/angles in 5-15º or 20-29º of Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, or Aquarius?

Now, this week’s Forecast…


Monday, April 18th:

Monday, the Moon remains in passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio until 10:16pm EDT. With this placement, we feel things deeply and have “X-Ray Vision” and “Bullshit-Smelling Abilities”.

Emotional authenticity is extremely important to us at this time; anything less than 100% emotional honesty could be perceived as flat-out dishonest. Once we feel safe trusting someone, we want to merge with them, preferably forever… as long as our trust is never betrayed.

The Moon in Scorpio urges us to uncover our own power. This occurs by a process of subtraction — it urges us to let go of whatever disempowers us. It’s thus an excellent time to look at “old” fears, limiting habits, or emotional attachments, especially those stemming from past traumas.

Moon in Scorpio tends to run right over ambiguity — it’s “in or out”, “with us or against us”, “love me or leave me”. It can therefore be stormy — a cold winter storm, or a torrid tropical storm of passion, depending on how we “work” the energies 🙂

Monday very early morning, an opportune Venus/Uranus aspect becomes exact at 3:15am EDT.  We started to feel this aspect build from last week, Saturday morning (April 16th) on, and it will remain strong until Tuesday evening. This gives us the opportunity to experiment with how we relate to others — to do something different or unusual — freedom plays a big part in this aspect.

Of course, others are experimenting too, so you might experience some unusual or unexpected interactions during this time — it’s a favorable time for social meetings and events — especially anything spiritual or creative in nature. As best as you can, stay open and flexible: fresh air is blowing through your relationships.

We’re also ready to experiment with our financial undertakings — good places to look: all things “tech” (electronics, technology, internet); metaphysics; the arts; group activities. This is not the best time to make long-term financial investments that are not suggested in an intuitive flash 😉

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 12-16 degrees of Pisces, Taurus, Cancer, or Capricorn? If so, you will be more aware of this opportunity. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus, Libra or Aquarius (Venus is the ruler of Taurus and Libra, Uranus rules Aquarius).

Monday late morning, a challenging Sun/Pluto aspect becomes exact at 11:14am EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from last week, Friday evening (April 15th) on, and it will remain strong until this Thursday evening (April 21st). What we identify ourselves with could now be challenged. This aspect forces us to confront our will, power, assertion, and authority.

Coming into focus now: the relationship with a father- or other important male-figures. We may face the need to be more independent, assertive, and autonomous.

We may alienate others with a controlling, jealous, or overbearing manner. This manner stems from a deep fear of letting go and surrendering to the idea that some things cannot be directed or controlled. We are learning to detach from (let go of) something or someone that no longer serves us — the “something” could include attitudes.

This fear may lead us to compulsive, suspicious, or difficult behavior, costing us the very thing that we hold dear. As best as you can, open yourself up to the power of love within. When you do, you will discover your own strength, and rework your very identity. Perhaps most importantly, this aspect puts us face to face with exactly what’s been holding us back from leading a fuller, more meaningful life.

We may have to make some changes or adjustments between our immediate personal desires and our long-term goals. As best as you can, be open to receiving feedback from others during this time.

If you feel pressured into doing something or you feel a power struggle build, as best as you can, get centered, get grounded and open your heart and mind. This aspect is a major growth opportunity for us: we struggle with buried elements of our personality and ego, learning to face, accept and transform them.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in the following placements: 25-29 degrees of Aries, Capricorn, Libra, or Cancer, or 0-1 degrees of Taurus, Aquarius, Leo or Scorpio? If so, you will be more affected by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Scorpio (the Sun is the ruler of Leo; Pluto rules Scorpio)

Monday evening, at 7:55pm EDT, we enter a Moon VoC that lasts for almost 2.5 hours, until 10:16pm EDT. Use this intuitive time as an opportunity to focus on inner processes. As best as you can, release any fears or traumas that keep you stuck in the past, and deepen your connection to what you feel deeply passionate about out there in the world — you have an opportunity to become fully committed to a project or task now — something that might serve you long-term.

As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don’t start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Monday evening ahead of time.

Monday late evening, at 10:16pm EDT, the Moon moves into optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius, where it will journey until Wednesday late evening. We’re strongly motivated to explore and learn. We’re not likely to be big fans of routine — diversity and new adventures work best at this time — we’re also physically restless and need to burn that off with activity and physical exercise.

We tend to feel more open, optimistic and inspired — but we also have a high degree of independence — and taking these two influences together, this means we’d rather inspire others to do things our way, as opposed to issuing or obeying orders. Inspiring others could come easier than normal, as we can see the bigger picture, leaving us confident that others will agree with us, once they see what we see.

As best as you can, speak your truth without assuming that everyone is on the same page as you. Improvisation works well for us at this time, as we are spontaneous and love living on the edge — just watch out you aren’t overdoing or overstating things.
