Every year has a sort of astrological “signature” – a central theme or story. This year, one of the signatures is a series of rolling Jupiter/Pluto alignments – one of which takes place this month, while most of us are in this strange lockdown.
Jupiter is the planet of plenty, Pluto is the planet of change and transformation, Jupiter is about luck, Jupiter is about passion. Put it all together and we have the chance for plenty of change, lots of passion, positive transformation, and even a sort of rebirth.
The April Jupiter/Pluto alignments going to affect everyone differently and in some ways, it could be rather intangible change. Reason being, a lot of what happens when Pluto is involved happens more on a psychological level. However that doesn’t diminish the power of what’s happening this month at all. And nor does it mean that the changes are small!
It’s certainly a time to live consciously and intentionally.
So think about where in your life you are craving a change that happens from the inside out. Think about where you can throw off dead wood in your life, too. Pluto is all about shedding the past, shedding our old skins, move on, in a sort of life-death-and-rebirth-cycle kind of way.
Maybe consciousness about this has risen up for you because of the isolation many of us are now in.
What do you know you need to release to live a better life once this cycle of being at home is over?
The good news is that even though Pluto is not a planet to be meddled with – it’s stealthy but super-powerful, the fact it’s being triggered by Jupiter is a good thing, because Jupiter has the Midas touch and brings goodness even to the most intense energies (of which Pluto is one!) So think about where you want change now and start to make it happen.
Also this month, we get the Full Moon in the sign of Libra. Libra is the relationship sign and Full Moons are always about letting go and moving on.
If you’re in a relationship that you know has run its course, this is a good time to breathe out and release upset. That said, it can also mark a time when a relationship moves up a notch. Obviously if you’re in lockdown with someone and it’s become obvious that the relationship is toxic, then you need to look at your options – or create some if you can. However there is also a scenario where lockdown + the Full Moon in Libra make you realise that all you needed with your beloved was more time together – this can be a turnaround that changes things for you in a wonderful way!
Be aware that this Full Moon on April 8 is clashing with the aforementioned planetary heavy-weights Jupiter and Pluto, effectively exacerbating the themes which are already coming up in your life about release, letting go, transformation, power struggles, passion and change. Also look at what in your life is doing you no good – think things like processed food or slothfulness which you can address during this strange time.
The New Moon this month takes place on April 23 in the sign of Taurus. Taurus is the sign associated with money, among other things. So if you want to make some New Moon wishes, make them around 12.30pm on April 23 and include something about how you want to make more cash. Tip; wishing to win cash is likely to be less effective than wishing to come up with a new way to generation revenue or income. If you’re in lockdown, do you have a talent or asset which you can sell online at this time, for example? People need different things right now, than ever before. There is nothing wrong with making money by selling a service that people need, if you also need money. Sure we should help our neighbours for free, however, if you still have rent or mortgage to pay and your income has dropped, look and see which talents the Divine gave you which you can monetise to survive and thrive! Anything done with your heart in the right place is good! There is nothing wrong with asking for an energy exchange in the shape of cash for your time, though do remember to also give generously as well. There are new rules in place now!
The New Moon will be taking place near and trigging the planet of excitement and sudden change, Uranus, so there could be curveballs for a lot of people – especially Taureans, Scorpios, Aquarians and people with those signs rising. Our best hope is that there is a sudden and massive change happening with the virus. Uranus is all about technology so maybe it will be the tests that we all need for the people who have had the virus to be allowed back into society to start rebuilding. Uranus is unpredictable, so who knows – be here’s hoping it works in humanity’s favour!
All in all, April is a time to be spiritual and emotionally awake! And this was the case even before the situation we’re now all in developed!
It’s not an eclipse month but it has a similar energy, in terms of the fact that massive changes are possible for those who choose to gather their courage to walk through the energetic portals to a new and better life. How are YOU creating your new life?
