Welcome to a new world and a NEW YEAR….

IN reality the NEW YEAR began for the sky on the 20th of March as the sun entered the sign of ARIES and so now the Shifts happening are really going to open your Life in so many wonderful new ways.

We begin the month with A BRINGING in energy (GREEN COLORED if you got your calendar?)** contact me about how to color or get your calendar carolbarbeau544@gmail.com

So energies increase until the full moon on the 10th when we have a RELEASING time and things feel they slow down a bit.

Welcome to your astrology and some wonderful opportunities for change and creating a new way of being. CAN WE ALL?

  • look to the past with gratitude
  • look to the future with Vision
  • look upwards for strength
  • look within to find peace and please remember

In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves. Buddha

In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then believe them to be true. Buddha

It is a man’s own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways. Buddha

It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell. Buddha

WOW does life heat up On April Fools’ Day Jupiter wearing her Libra costume goes backwards

AKA retrogrades into an aspect called a quincunx with Ceres in Taurus: (From Cafeastrology.com )( The Inconjunct or Quincunx. Pleae Remember, quincunx means ‘integration.’ The quincunx is asking you to change something or make an adjustment in the 2 houses where the planets sit that create the quincunx. A quincunx is a 150° angle

Often described as ‘being between a rock and a hard place.’ Therefore, the quincunx is described as a “hard” aspect, meaning it brings challenge. And challenges eventually build a stronger character. Through your own inflexibility, the quincunx will teach you to either “bend” or “break.” For us all who are a bit stubborn this is a POWERFUL learning time, And whether you learn the easy way or the hard way is certainly up to you by your choices and attitudes.

Want to argue politics, or take a stand I would advise against it, but if you must please , make sure that the philosophy behind the action is clear, understandable, and flawless. Ceres is about the harvest, nurturing and often relates to planetary ecological issues.

Jupiter in Libra just would like us all to shut up and find a middle ground and get along. NOT the way April 2017 begins for any of us though. SORRY, but please remember about 99% of us out there are a bit pissed off right now. Just stand your own ground and do not try to push into others and you will be ok. PUSHING, well, expect to be pushed back this month.

Good luck to those of us wanting “all or nothing,” “my needs only,” my way or the highway energy. Jupiter, while in Libra, presumes fairness for all should be the way while . Ceres, in Taurus, seeks financial stability in the resolution.

We have been encountering since Late February the energy of Venus Retrograde which in the sign of Aries has tried to Encourages Reassessment of Self, which action to take and OURSELVES:

On April 2nd Venus backs into Pisces, and dreams become reality? OR reality the dream? Whatever… Right now we may be inspired with new ideas, it won’t be good timing to move forward with our plans until May. IF you must then remember plans can always be changed and flexability is our keyword, and if it not? Then we shall learn it.

Venus is the ruler of both money and love, making Venus retrograde a particularly bad time to initiate major business transactions or committed relationships.

So this Venus rx. Is about action (Aries) and mutability and instinct and psychic connections (Pisces) so many of us are getting a great growth opportunity right now.

  • Aries is Cardinal (CREATES ACTION) Fire (action and creation) The Symbol of Aries is the RAM, head down and charging forward: So, curb those rash actions and instead use the bravery and courage end of this wonderful cycle which encourages the I AM and I CAN DO in us all. The sun is in Aries until April 19th when it enters Taurus:
  • The colors of April are all forms of RED, which is the color of passion, new beginnings; Red is the color of the first Chakra and carries unbelievable power if you wear it, or even visualize it. Did you know red in a room brings passion and energy to that room? Or to a person? RED FOR THE POWER and passion of being the best that you can be from this moment forward. Red for Forward and NOT backward
  • Use Sapphire blue and the energy of this stone this month to connect you into higher consciousness and keep you on track. Or turquoise for Shamanic connection.
  • We are now in the time of the East and the energy all around and within us is about ILLUMINATION and Wisdom.
  • The Eagle is the Spirit keeper for this time as we are encouraged to fly high and dare to become more than we think we can.
  • Dandelion is the flower and the Color Yellow which is the color of joy is a great energy to use this month besides the sapphire blue and red.

Coyote is part of Mercury energy and the trickster this month is opening the doors to our inner self wider than ever before.

Mercury the trickster planet of ideas, communications and planning is still in that magical mercury retrograde April 9th, 2017 to May 3rd in Taurus until the 20th and then MERCURY BACKS INTO FIERY ARIES and all bets are off… The first part of this mercury rx. Will be about money and finances and practical stuff and the 2nd ½ will be about Action, passions. And carry forth any anger energy you are holding onto SO LET GO RIGHT NOW: and….

On April 4th, Mars (the planet of war, action and energy in the earthy sign of Taurus quincunxes Jupiter’s Libran position. So, this is a continuation and is very. Similar to the April Fools’ Day pattern, the end real world result must work for all parties. Perhaps many things which you feel MUST BE done right now could wait until May and you can slow down this month and enjoy a get away, or just some quality time alone? We have some great planning and getting more information energy, but also are being pushed to GET IT NOW:

April 5th Saturn the planet which represents structure and order and karma moves Retrograde in Sagittarius from 4/5 to August 25th.

Personally I like Saturn retrograde because for me, the rules come off a bit and folks seem a bit looser and easier to deal with, but getting that loan or creating order from NON ORDER will not be as easy as you might like. Sagittarius is the sign of freedom and DON”T FENCE ME IN, will be our theme through much of this next few months. PS Saturn is rx. in my birthchart, lol, Seems like I never learned to follow the rules, even in other incarnations..

April 9th Mars (Action) catches up with Ceres in Taurus. Both these mid-solar system bodies possess the ability to be… well, Hair-triggered, reactive, knee jerk and defensive energies are certainly available should you choose to use them? Astrology guides and gives us energy but we do not have to use it do we? Recognize the reactive collective impulse, impetus urges out there. And if you choose? You can stand above such response patterns and serve as a calming influence. Since this is in Taurus, accomplishments this month just could help change your life and others.

April 9th MERCURY retrograde asks us to rethink our plans and finances in Taurus Mercury then retrogrades or backs into Aries which is much about actions April 28th and things get a bit wilder. We shall not be out of the mercury rx. Pattern until mercury returns to 5 degrees of Taurus on May 20th and …so…remember redo, replan, revisit, rethink, replay, rejoice, reject, review and all the RE things will go great… REAPPLY for a loan is good and reconnect with those from your past is good also. NOT a bad time, we have 4 mercury rx. Per year, just a time to allow us to breathe if we will take it?

April 10th Full moon with the Moon in Libra (mantra) I am centered and grounded, I know how to balance my obligations to others with my obligations to myself The moon in this chart is sitting with Jupiter in Libra and asks us to believe that we can have harmony and care for each other (SABIAN symbol for the moon at 22 degrees of Libra is Libra 22:A child giving birds a drink at a fountain.)

For this full moon we also have the Sun in Aries (Mantra) Aries I am courageous. I am whole. I stand in my power I follow my passion and dreams (Sabian Symbol for 22 Aries is Aries 22: The gate opens to the garden of all fulfilled desires. (now we begin to Release as the moon grows smaller each day and this Full moon is much about relationships, with self and others and the sun in the sky is sitting right next to Uranus (change) so expect a wild May also.

We now have 4 planets in Capricorn asking us to take charge, 4 in Pisces asking us to lay back and let go, and Lol, you get to choose don’t you?
April 15th Venus finally moves direct and many of us will have a much better idea of the next step, but please remember Saturn just rx. And mercury rx. Double check all plans please, trust in the details only when you have checked them out again.

Get those taxes done EARLY the 18th carries some squares (challenges) to travel and communication. The moon is in Capricorn that day and authority figures will be holding to the rules this last day to get those taxes in.

On the 19th as the sun moves to Taurus we begin to get the energy of earthy Taurus, Gemini and Cancer. This time always brings us into a time of richness and fruitfulness. The Symbol For the energy of Taurus until the 20 of May now is the Bull. Taurus is a FIXED Earth sign (Earth signs are about Building and planting) So, for all of us this time gives us the dedication, tenacity and the determination to build what is most important to us

Magical energy Colors for April 19th through may 20th are Green for growth, Pink for love and blue for clarity of thought, word,

and deed and use the Stone Emerald to improve psychic powers, sharpen intellect, intuition, vision and memory.

The plant sacred to this time is the Hawthorne also known as the May tree which blooms only in May and is used for clarity, visions and psychic ability.
April 20th Pluto the planet of death, regeneration and rebirth moves Retrograde until September 28th in Capricorn. Since this planet is not a PEARSONAL planet and spends so much time retrograde you may not even notice it, but since we are gathering Capricorn energy where events are happening for you will be HOT for the next 2 years…(time for an appointment? This time is pretty much like a train heading for a destination and very easy to read events for people right now)*** carolbarbeau544@gmail.com

On the 21st and Mars the planet of action leaves behind its kind of angry Aries, and stuck Taurus energy and enters much more social Gemini. I expect things to begin to move more easily now

Saturday 22nd WOWSERS SOOO much psychic energy on Friday, Saturday and into Sunday. WOW

April 24th and 25th Dark of the moon magical wishing time in Aries and Taurus and then the NEW MOON
BRINGING IN TIME 4/28 5:16am PDT and wow is this a power packed chart: 4 planets in Pisces right next to 5 planets in Aries, and a sun, moon new moon at 6 degrees of TAURUS (Sabian Symbol for this is) Taurus 6: A bridge being built across a high narrow gorge. And boy aren’t we ready for some bridge building….

Wednesday April 26th New moon in Taurus Moon in Taurus and SUN in Taurus Mantras: I release all blocks and know that I truly can move forward and create and build something from nothing it is within my power

Gifts this month are an ability to readjust our beliefs and goals and also for us all to perhaps see the other guys side a bit easier? Learning patience, and perhaps some of us learn that other opinions other than our own can be OK and right for THEM, even if they are not right for us.

GROWTH OPPORTUNITIES are: (lol) learning to STOP self from REACTIONS and move into positive real world goals and actions. Learning what is Stubborness and what is truly your own objective and … being consistant. and recognizing true intuitive energy FROM FEAR Based thoughts.

This is not a bad month, but lots is happening to assist us to grow. ALWAYS PLEASE REMEMBER THE GOAL of SPRING IS ::: energetically… TIME OF the east (AND we all use these energies nomatter what our own sun sign is ..
