Last week I mentioned the solar wind that was coming our way. It showed up right on time early last week and disturbed some of us more than others. Some folks, probably those that are not spiritually awake of just waking up, didn’t really notice much. Some noticed their electronics and devices didn’t function properly. This could also be due to Mercury’s retrograde.
Many people experienced sleep problems. They thought they weren’t sleeping because they were stressed, overtired, ate something that kept them awake, or a myriad of other reasons. All these things can cause disturbances but so can solar energy hitting our planet. I finally got a good nights sleep Wednesday night.
Some of us reported sleeping more than usual. Others reported feeling energized, blissful, or in agony. There were also feelings of depression, inspiration, transformation, creativity, and more.
The solar energy wave or wind even caused some people to itch or feel like something was crawling on their skin. In the past, I have had feeling like ants were in my hair. It is very creepy and when it first happened I was sure something must be in my hair. Over time I learned, it was not ants. It was actually a connection to spirit or the outer realms. Well. . . I’ve been feeling the ants this past week. Some people might say I was getting a download from aliens. LOL
If you felt one way but your partner or a close friend felt another, don’t be alarmed. We are all at different points on our path to enlightenment.
This week begins with the New Moon today, April 15th. It is in the sign of Aries and brings us some potent energy for change in our lives. This is after all, about new beginnings as all New Moons are. There is also the added benefit of new beginnings from the energy of Aries. This is energy that is full of adventure and authenticity. Use this to break out of your shell, transform like the butterfly, find inner joy, self-reliance, and do all these things happily without the help of others.
This will be difficult for many because they are still living in the trap of fear, lack, and poverty. We all have been there. For the rest of today and Monday at least, use the Aries New Moon energy to regenerate yourself, break out of the box of limitations, and welcome in something new; whatever that looks like for you. Change can be scary but we need to rise above the fear. This is real personal evolution.
Mercury stations direct today (4/15)2018)! This retrograde has been a difficult one for many of us. I have personally only noticed a few glitches with technology and most of that was during the solar energy passing through.
Monday also brings us a semi-square aspect between Mercury and Venus. Be careful how you say things and make an extra effort to be nice because folks will be quite sensitive today. This energy causes us to be quite sensitive, of course, some more than others depending on the individual natal chart. The moon, the planet of emotions, will balance this energy by moving into Taurus Monday. Thank goodness for some grounding!
Monday also holds Venus opposite Jupiter. Anytime Jupiter is involved, the energy is big. In this case, love is strong and can even be rather extreme for some. We might expect more than we can actually get. People that subliminally feed on drama will unknowingly draw same to them and it could spill over to the rest of us. The news tomorrow could be very interesting.
Tuesday is an active day with four major things to discuss.
First up is a Venus-Jupiter opposition is good for social connections. Some will be drawn to party more than usual. Please be careful. This is the first of the week (unless you work in the service industry) and Tuesday is a work day. Don’t eat or drink too much and don’t overspend to drown any feelings of upset or fear. Daily routines can get boring but they are also comforting. Relax! Life will bring you what you need when you need it. Don’t force it.
Next one for Tuesday is Chiron entering Aries. This is an aspect that can assist us in healing both physical and psychological wounds from our childhood or anytime we are deeply wounded. People with Chiron in Aries in their natal chart are tough. This is where the “school of hard knocks’ is located. Now it is time to be healed and give ourselves some good care. We all deserve it.
Venus will trine Pluto on Tuesday. This is a good aspect for our money and our relationships. It could a bit consuming and fiery but at least it is not going to rip us apart or offend us in any way. Instead, our desire is to go deep in sharing our hearts desires. Use this energy of love to evolve. Love, indeed, has the power to change us and the world in general.
Saturn turns direct Tuesday. We can expect all things dealing with structure and authority to get moving again. Problem is, we might not like some of the directions this can take us personally and collectively.
Wednesday the Sun conjuncts Uranus. This aspect is all about independence. Impulsivity, progression, and change. We welcome new, unique things into our lives. More change but it is a good change, or could be. This aspect brings positive energy to technology and the metaphysical. It can also make some of us rather antsy and actually wanting change. Oh, my! Whoda thunk it? Someone actually welcomes change? You just never know. That new friend you make today could bring you interesting changes in the future.
Thursday, Venus aspects Saturn. This one might bring some difficulties in our relationships with others. Saturn tends to block our emotions and our affections might seem cooler than usual. This is an aspect that is, sadly filled with unrequited love, separations, and breakups. . If you make any large purchases, they could turn in a conduit for cash.
Mercury aspects Jupiter on Thursday. This can cause an overload of information. So much so that details can slip right through the cracks. Pay closer attention to the details so that you don’t cause yourself or others any difficulties. Some people will exaggerate things today.
The last major aspect of the week comes on Friday when the Sun is semi-square Neptune. Neptune always brings a sort of fog or illusion to our lives. Our ability to use willpower could be quite low and our focus is really off. We might want to steer clear of new goals or ideas. Our ability to focus on anything that requires critical thinking will be very difficult today.
Knowing where we stand with others is obscured by the fog of Neptune today. Sticking to our plans for the day will prove challenging. Overindulgence will again be the rule of the day. That makes two of these days this week, but with some care and perseverance, we will make it through this unscathed. This is not the best day for surgery, appointments, or starting a new project. Use the New Moon energy early in the week for the new projects.
Last week many of you could have been affected or at least heard of more than one death. This is one more thing that we can chalk up to the Solar energy early in the week. Lots of souls have completed their work in the physical or have decided that it is just time to go. I hope this is only temporary and not something that lasts over months or years like it was about 10 years ago. However, I have to accept that death is going to happen more and more now that I have reached that “certain age”.
April is the time we sow seeds. The weather has caused most garden prep to be delayed. However, there are other kinds of seeds we can sow. Seeds of love being perhaps the most important seed we can sow. For the rest of the month try sowing seeds of love. Start with a morning meditation of gratitude. Throughout the day try to use the 5 languages of love the are outlined in the book of the same name by Gary Chapman. . .
Enjoy your week! Remember to be kind. The world needs all the kindness it can get and that includes you and me so smile and do good.
