Weekly Forecast: April 19 – 25, 2015
4/19 ~ Mercury (expression) ~sextile~ Neptune (dreams):
This is a great energy for being imaginative and intuitive. This is not an intellectual energy, you will have to rely on other senses, like feeling (intuition). You may be very perceptive as to what others are thinking or feeling. Try to avoid work that requires any attention to detail. Allow your creativity to flow freely without censoring what comes through you at this time. You can organize it later. This is the energy to CREATE!
4/19 ~ Venus (art & beauty) ~square~ Neptune (vision):
This energy is great for creative flow. If you are artistically inclined in any way, you will have access to an energy that will allow you to create something amazing. This energy is not so good for relationships. There may be a tendency to idealize your partner, only to be let down by the reality of the situation. If your relationship happens to end under this influence, it’s not necessarily a bad thing because it suggests that it was never on solid ground to begin with. Be thankful and move on.
4/20 ~ Mercury (expression) ~square~ Jupiter (truth):
This is usually a good energy, making you optimistic and positive. You are probably going to feel like setting some long-term goals. The only challenge with this energy is a tendency to overlook the details if they are not in line with YOUR plans. Just plan carefully and remember the big picture. Remain open and receptive to information that could help you down the road.
4/21 ~ Mars (energy) ~trine~ Pluto (transformation):
This is an active, transformative energy that will help you to change your life in a healthy, positive way. You may be especially focused on what needs to be DONE in your life at this time. You will want to take action and the Universe supports that decision, as long as it is righteous and not totally self-serving. This is a good time to get moving, take action regarding your long term goals – and you will be able to create momentum. You may realize some of your recent actions or choices do not necessarily support your deepest drives or desires. You must align within and without. Be creative ~ be brave!
4/22 ~ Mercury (inner-voice) ~trine~ Pluto (deep connection):
This energy provokes deep delving WITHIN. You will be most inclined toward learning the meaning “behind the meaning”. You will want to explore your inner Self and try to understand it better. It is best to be alone for such research. Take a day or a weekend and grab your most powerful books and music and get somewhere beautiful if you can, if not your bedroom will do just as well – and dig deep! You are finally ready for the deeper truth, and you will be transformed by what you learn. If you must communicate with others, plan on that being deep as well. Nothing superficial today. The only warning with this energy is not to become obsessive about one particular idea – and certainly don’t try to force your particular opinion on others. If you feel the deep need to focus on one particular thing, that is fine but try to keep some perspective or write down all your revelations so you can reflect on them at a later time when you are more objective.
4/22 ~ Venus (relationships) ~sextile~ Jupiter (optimism):
This energy may help balance out the rest of the things happening this week (hopefully). Try to tap into it if you can, but it is up against some major movement so don’t be surprised if you miss its influence altogether. It is usually an easy energy to deal with, usually involving friends and social activities; optimism and new friendships or relationships that help you be the best person you can be. You will want to deal with positive, uplifting people under this influence.
4/22 ~ Mercury (thoughts) ~conjunct~ Mars (energy):
I have to preface this with two things: (1) is when Mercury is involved, it is a relatively fast-moving energy. (2) is when Mars is involved, being the lower version of power (Pluto being the Higher version), reminds us that with power, also comes responsibility. Now, that all said, the positive expression of this energy is that you can control your mind and direct it with passion, getting tangible results. This heightens your intellectual ability and mental capacity (for better or worse). You will be able to clearly articulate your thoughts and you should have quick, effective responses. If you maintain your integrity, this is an excellent time to ‘fuel’ major creative expression. If this energy manifests is negative side, it can make you petty and combative, arguing over nonsense and wasting precious time and energy in ego control-dramas. And if it is not coming FROM you, it is just as possible to be coming AT you (from others). This is the best time to put your energy (Mars) behind your thoughts, ideas and words (Mercury). The power of this pairing is that they are occupying the same space, essentially energizing each other.
