April 17-23, 2017 is ripe with opportunity to implement necessary changes. The sun moves from impulsive Aries to steady Taurus. Mental Mercury does the opposite and moves backwards from methodical Mercury to get er done Aries. And Mars moves into curious Gemini to get us moving in many directions. Last but certainly not least-heavy hitter Pluto in Capricorn goes retrograde too. Four planets in total are in review right now. We are entering the void. A place of all possibility. Look closer. Take the next half a year to allow yourself to slow down and dig up the answers. This will clear the way to the fortunate circumstances you seek.
Monday the sun will form a supportive relationship with Saturn. This is good for discipline combined with bravery. Is there something you need to get done? Something that will take initiative and authenticity? Monday is the day for that.
Wednesday the Sun shifts into Taurus. This is good for a sense of stability. All the fiery energy of the Aries sun has got us rolling, but now we need to implement methods and procedures that will keep the machine we just got moving well oiled. Taurus is a earthy primitive sign that likes things obvious and simple. Don’t fix what is not broken. This energy will give you a nose for value. It will give you a desire for the good things in life. Whatever that means to you. Follow joy, seek simple pleasures. Think big. You can manifest most fortunate scenarios that hold much value long term in the next month.
Shortly after the sun moves to Taurus on Wednesday it will also conjunct clever Mercury. In Taurus Mercury wants to keep it light and pleasant. It wants to do things in nice clear and predictable ways. There is a lusty thirst for commitment and certainty. Your mind will be very thorough now too. This is great if there is many areas that need attention. It may take time to address everything you want to this month, but you can trust you will get to it. You won’t miss what is important.
Thursday Pluto is going retrograde to give us a little break in intensity. Pluto in Capricorn since 2008 has been breaking up the establishment. Exposing the dark underbelly of the systems that we are told to count on. Gone are the days of being blindly lead. Now we can’t help put think for ourselves. Pluto retrograde until the end of September gives us a chance to integrate all the changes we are making. It helps us understand what we are leaving behind and why. It helps us embrace the future. Rise from the ashes, and do it for the greater good for best results.
Mercury moves to Aries Thursday too. Watch how your thoughts shift on Thursday. From slow and steady to antsy and brave. Mercury in Aries is retrograde now too. Don’t be surprised by encounters with past relationships. Mercury is in review. What can you learn from the last month? What has come up? Don’t waste an opportunity to understand things. Keep an open heart and an open mind to fully integrate all this change. Mercury is a trickster in retrograde. Nothing is as it seems.
Mars in Gemini is busy as a bee. Get out there and get social. Gemini energy feeds off curious novelty and many truths. This Mars in Gemini will allow you to diversify. To actually enjoy meeting new people and enjoy social situations you might be likely to avoid at other times.
Get out there and learn about your neighborhood. Take short trips and appreciate where you are now. You have come such a long way. Beam grateful.
About the author: I get such lovely feedback and attract very Light conscious people, feel blessed. I was told in 2005 while at a group channeling session, that I was one of the early indigo Children, at the time I was only vaguely aware of what that meant.I was 32 and it was true. Such a gift to find that out and begin to understand my differences were common among people with similar wiring. I have been studying astrology for 21 years, teaching and practicing professionally for 14 and speaking and writing for the last 6. I am also a Mum of a 14 year old unschooled daughter and the life partner to her Dad. It’s a grand little life and I want to help other people exit the matrix and live a life of Love and Light too. My offering is the connection to the energies of the planets and the understanding of our birth charts, our blueprint for our life plans. Please visit Hillory Skott International Holistic Astrologer.
