April 2013…spring is in the air
April begins with the Sun in fiery Aries connected to expansive and optimistic Jupiter. This provides a pioneering and enterprising spirit which encourages you to develop your original ideas and to pursue your own projects. Opportunities are waiting…
If others cannot commit to grow and expand in new areas…then trust yourself and go it alone… a very Arian trait. Trust yourself and get going. This Aries wants to make things happen and happen now! Successful negotiations in projects and business agreements are favored now wherever you go in your career.
Fire is spontaneous and loves adventure. The energy at the beginning of April is most welcomed by like-minded fire signs of Leo and Sagittarius. This brings a great deal of passionate, sexual desire into relationships although real stability doesn’t settle in until April 2o when Mars enters the more grounded Taurus element.
By April 25 the real test of commitment appears when we have our first partial lunar eclipse Full Moon in Scorpio… more on that later.
The assertive fire energy beginning this month of April may feel too impulsive and rash with the more practical earth-signs like Taurus and Virgo. Even Capricorns will be feeling the push to proceed in to areas out of their “comfy zones” due to the pressure of the Aries planets in challenging aspect to their stoic, traditional need for certainty!
Aries is ruled by Mars…planet of competition, war, and rash behavior leading to accidents. In days of old Mars was the god of war and strife but:
“Metaphysically this planet symbolizes our potency, our ability to motivate ourselves to grow as spiritual beings, and our courage to fight for a higher purpose – something beyond our own self-satisfaction.”
Acts of frustration, impulse and haste work in combination with the Aries planets compounding the impulsive and aggressiveness in the air… so remain aware of your surroundings, pay attention to traffic, make time to get out and enjoy the splendor of spring in all her glory!
