MARCH 30-April 9, 2017
THURS-SUNDAY, MARCH 30-April 2, 2017
This is one of the most dramatic weeks of the astrological year ... a time when you must be very careful in traffic ... avoid public places where terrorist attacks could occur ... and when reckless rules could cause global havoc. For the second time since last November, Libra Jupiter is in a 90-degree square aspect to Capricorn Pluto. This is happening again because Retrograde Jupiter has reversed back into this dire configuration. And when Jupiter goes Direct in a few weeks, this configuration will occur a third time ... causing more havoc. This aspect heralds disaster on the global political and financial markets — a restructuring of the world's political and economic systems. The arrogance of unbridled growth (Jupiter) will be put into question by thorough and deep-seated structural reordering (Pluto) for the benefit of all humanity, not just for a few. This configuration is warning you — no, ordering you — to reassess your assets. Money and property are transitory things. Reflect on what is truly valuable to you.

On Monday, Retrograde Venus backs out of fiery Aries and dives into the romantic depths of Pisces, for the second time this year. This sign change marks a major change not only in love but also in finances. Pisces Venus is not only loving and compassionate but also creative and generous. The motto for the next few weeks is: "Give, and you shall receive!" Pisces Venus is super-compassionate and over-generous. For the next month you may find yourself obsessed with spirituality and consumed with compassionate charity for others. On the negative side, common-sense practicality may be hard to muster.
MON-WEDS., April 3-5, 2017
This week we come to the Cancer First Quarter Moon. It is the Lunar Phase of reflection and insight which we call the NARCISSUS MOON in Antinous Moon Magic ... Narcissus is the Spirit which tunes out all distractions and all other people in order to focus on the Divinity within. This Lunar Phase is the Spirit of Self-Love and Same-Sex Love. It is forever gazing into its own reflection and whispering to itself: You are Divine! The reflection and the viewer are one and the same. The Spirit of Narcissus is the Divinity which holds a mirror up to ourselves.

On Thursday, Saturn the ringed planet shifts into reverse gear to go Retrograde or "backwards" as seen from Earth. As Saturn retraces its steps for the next four months, we will all revisit issues and problems in our lives which need to be remedied before we move on. From now until August 26th, when Saturn goes Direct or "forwards" again, you can expect to have Saturn, the school teacher of the Zodiac, to force you to sit down and complete your homework before moving forward to the next class.
FRIDAY, April 7th, 2017
On Friday, the Sun is in direct opposition to Jupiter, causing a sense of over-exuberance, over-exaggeration and over-exertion in all areas. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing ... but don't forget that Jupiter is in a tight, 90-degree square angle to Pluto and in near-opposition to Uranus. Expect the unexpected. The coming weeks will show whether you bit off more than you can handle.
SATURDAY, April 8th, 2017
On Saturday, Venus is in a 90-degree right-angle square to stubborn Saturn ... for the second time this year. Both planets are Retrograde (going "backwards" as seen from Earth). Venus-square-Saturn means that relationship discussions are fraught with stumbling blocks. And because Venus and Saturn also have a play in money and business, you can expect problems in that area as well. Think back to what happened during the last week of January when these two planets were in a square configuration. The problems that cropped up then will be revisited ... and now is your opportunity to resolve them.
SUNDAY, April 9th, 2017
On Sunday, batten down the hatches and take cover when the Sun squares off against Pluto — a configuration which occurs only twice a year and which invariably spawns strife, conflict, warfare, earthquakes and even bad weather.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between April 10th and 16th when we come to the Libra Full Moon ... the lunar cycle we call the ORATOR MOON of diplomacy and balanced thinking. This is the perfect time for fulfilling dreams of finding just the right partner, the person who balances out your needs and desires perfectly. But remember that diplomacy is the key. Each Lunar Phase represents a Divine Spirit or Archetype. The Spirit of the Orator Moon is the embodiment of articulate expression in all forms and in all media, whether spoken, written or visual ...
