Be Honest with Yourself
This week’s headline items: Mercury changes sign from Aries to Taurus on Monday early afternoon; the Full Moon in Libra becomes exact on Wednesday night/Thursday very early morning — this also starts Eclipse Season. Mercury enters its pre-Shadow phase on Friday, and Pluto slows down a bit starting Sunday as it gets ready to come to a halt before it goes Retrograde three weeks from now.
There will be three Moon Void of Course (VoC) phases this week: Tuesday late morning (for 8 hours), Thursday morning (for almost 30 hours), and Sunday early morning (almost 4 hours).

Now, this week’s Forecast…
Monday, April 3rd:
Monday, the Moon remains in detail-oriented, practical Virgo all day. It will journey there until Tuesday early evening; turning our focus toward the practical and wholesome.
Monday early afternoon, at 12:22pm EDT, Mercury changes signs from enthusiastic, fast-paced Aries to steady, peaceful Taurus, where it will journey for an unusually long time, until June 11th, due to its upcoming Mercury Retrograde phase (in late April-May).
For the next 10 weeks, our thinking shifts gears: we want to connect to others in a realistic, down-to-earth way, and we “say it like it is”. We appreciate common sense; we rely on our senses when it comes to processing information.
A well-developed sense of color, smell, and touch are characteristic of this Mercury position, so as long as Mercury is in Taurus, we will be drawn towards the “tasteful” in the realm of the five senses. We are more likely to have a no-nonsense approach to decision-making, and our ideas are often very practical and useful at this time.
When it comes to learning, we prefer demonstrations, concrete answers, and basic concepts for the next 10 weeks. We learn best when we see real-world uses for the theories we are trying to absorb. We simply process information better when we can personalize it (“what use is it to me?”) and attach it to the practical world.
Do you have your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus? If so, you may feel more talkative during this time. Do you have your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini or Virgo? If so, you may need to slow down and “smell the roses”.
Monday afternoon, a challenging Mercury/Pluto aspect becomes exact at 2:55pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from last Saturday (April 1st); it will remain strong until this Wednesday. This aspect could create some tension in our lives. We may feel anxious or stressed by one or more situations or interactions to do with financial or personal resources.
We are being invited to grow and make some changes in our lives, particularly in terms of our thinking processes. We are being asked to find creative solutions and be completely honest with ourselves and others. The best way to achieve this is by continually taking a courageously heartfelt approach and by being authentic and heart-centered in our self-expression.
We have tremendous focus and drive right now, which can tip into obsession. With this aspect, an all-or-nothing attitude is very likely. Choose love over fear whenever possible. Not many people enjoy being second-guessed all the time, yet that is something that we are inclined to do now.
However, our determination to get to the bottom of any matter, to rip away falsehoods and expose true motives, can be used for good if we employ it in our work, for example, in regard to investigations or research. This is an opportunity to learn to harness our intense mental energy and apply it productively. We are also capable of very hard work, focus, and effort now.
We have a great love of debate but should be careful that we don’t overpower others with our strong opinions, attempting to “convert” them to our frame of mind, or treat regular exchanges of opinion as battlegrounds. We may also want to dial back on taking things personally!
As best as you can, connect to others, empowering them with what you feel passionate about. Choose your words with care and speak from a deeply connected and empowered place. Remember: Love expands us — and does the same for other people, and even life itself — while fear paralyzes!
Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in degrees of 0-3 degrees of Taurus, Aquarius, Scorpio, Leo, or 27-29 degrees of Aries, Capricorn, Libra, or Cancer? 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 Gemini, Virgo, or Scorpio (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo; Pluto rules Scorpio)
