Weekly Cosmic Tides – Astrology for the 2nd – 8th April 2012

Astrology for the 2nd - 8th April 2012Monday 2nd April
Saturn opposite Ceres – It may feel like feast or famine. You hunger for more structure in your life or feel deprived of home comforts. It’s a good time to examine how you are nurturing yourself. It’s OK to be sentimental sometimes. Don’t be afraid of showing a little love…

Tuesday 3rd April
Venus enters Gemini – after languishing in her finery in Taurus, Venus is now ready to get out and about, flitter and flirt. Venus doesn’t want to be contained, she doesn’t want complications. All she needs is good connections and lively conversation. If you’ve been needing to air some differences, now might be a good time to open a dialogue.

Wednesday 4th April
Mercury stationary direct in Pisces. Time to get back on track. Take a moment today to pause and reflect on where you are, where you have been and where you would like to go. Take stock of what is around you and the feelings your immediate environment invokes. Your intuition will point you in the right direction.

Thursday 5th April
Moon in Virgo, Moon in Libra – The first part of the day may see some irritations as someone is fussing over details yet still not saying exactly what they want! If you find yourself in this situation, wait until after lunch to tackle the issue. The Moon moving into Libra trine Venus puts everyone in the mood to compromise.

Friday 6th April
Full Moon in Libra square Pluto, Venus square Neptune – Difficulties arise when people believe their own hype and are too afraid to face who they really are. We must be careful not to be become fixed to our masks. There isn’t an ‘easy way out’ – ease comes from within.

Saturday 7th April
Venus square Mars – Tensions continue as this difficult aspect makes everything feel like a competition. Try not to get caught up in pettiness. This aspect can instead help you rise to the challenge, stirring your passions and stimulating your desires – great for creative types! If you find yourself getting tetchy, focus on the pleasure not the pain, the taking part instead of the finishing.

Sunday 8th April
Moon in Scorpio sextile Pluto – Opportunities arise to find out the truth. Trust your gut instincts and powers of perception – they will lead the way.
