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

We are in Eclipse season until May 26th, so as best as you can, surrender any fears, and trust the process. If you find yourself “going down the rabbit hole”, please reach out for a session with Lia or me — we are happy to support you ==> Lia offers Readings (including 25-minute Readings), and of course, I offer a multitude of Readings.

If what you are experiencing is emotional in nature, please consider one or more Coaching-Healing sessions with me — this Eclipse season is an opportunity to process things from the past that have been long overdue.


Now, this week’s Forecast…

Monday, April 25th:

Monday, the Moon remains in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius and VoC until 6:15am EDT; at which time, the Moon moves into creative, sensitive Pisces, where it will journey until Wednesday early afternoon. This Moon placement often finds us more sensitive, intuitive, idealistic, and imaginative than normal. We also have a greater capacity for compassion, sympathy, and affection for all — but especially for those who suffer or can be regarded as the underdog.

But… that very idealism could also be our downfall at this time: We tend to see the best in everyone and everything, and when reality doesn’t match our idyllic vision, we might feel upset and even victimized by those harsh realities. A way out of this is to channel our idealism into spiritual or creative endeavors.

It’s also a great time for releasing fears — especially the ones based on a sense of separation — and experiencing “oneness”. Feelings tend to flow more freely; as best as you can, let them — in fact, “going with the flow” is the best way to go for the next couple of days.

Neptune is the ruler of Pisces — and it is currently in its own signmaking these next two days a great time to take a look at our inner spiritual connection to our “higher Self”, “Source”, “God/Goddess”.

It’s also a great time to allow all there is, as it is, and to go with the flow, following our intuitive voice as much as possible. We are being asked to tap into the “feminine” energies within ourselves so we can start to vibrate on a universal frequency.

Ask yourself: Is my “higher Self” asking for more introverted/inner love-time? If I tune in with my intuitive voice, what am I receiving? Sensing?

Where in my life have I become too disconnected from life? Love? God/Goddess? What is my connection to the spiritual realm? What about the “heart realm”? How could nature and/or animals teach me about those realms?

Do I need more downtime? More resting-time? More compassion? How might being kind to myself, and trusting the process of Life create a more loving connection with the universe?

Monday night/Tuesday very early morning around 2am EDT, Mercury enters its pre-Shadow phase when it reaches 26º of Taurus; this is two weeks prior to its Retrograde phase (which starts on May 10th at almost 5º of Gemini).

What is the Shadow phase? The period immediately before and after a planet’s Retrograde phase is referred to as the “Shadow phase”; at these times, the planet travels once more through the degrees of a sign (or signs) that it had already passed through before and during its Retrograde phase. Mercury is usually in its shadow for about two to three weeks prior to a retrograde, and for three to four weeks after.

If you want to buy, sell or ship big-ticket items — especially connected to transportation (cars, airline tickets, etc.) or communication devices (phone, computer, iPad, etc.) — be aware of the Shadow periods as well as the Retrograde phases. If possible, get these things done before Mercury enters its pre-Shadow or wait until after the post-Shadow phase is over — post-Shadow phase will end on June 18th (in this case 😉

Of course, if there is something that must get done during these phases, don’t put your whole life on hold, just because Mercury is Retrograde or in its Shadow. Sometimes things line up exactly at the right time; as best as you can, trust that it’s all “perfect” 😉
