With the Sun entering Taurus on Monday April 20 at 2:42 am Pacific time, a sense of wellbeing is in the ethers. Taurus is a very slow moving sign of the zodiac, but its ruler is Venus, and Venus is motivated by beauty, getting things shifted and re-shaped into a more pleasing environment like remodeling houses, gardens, or closets. It is a good time for reaching out in attaining those goals. As the Sun continues aspecting Pluto in a very positive format throughout the month, beauty and transformation is possible. Pluto has its positive sides as well as its challenging sides…it just depends on your frame of mind.
In the first few days of Pluto in retrograde motion, it may have seemed as there were barriers. The Mercury/Mars challenge on Wednesday suggests communication. Think before you speak, because Mars often spews things out without filters. The end of the day is far more volatile than the beginning of the day where great ideas are passed back and forth, but by day’s end, the mood shifts. Close it up and go home.
There is some juggling that takes place at week’s end as fun loving Sun and Venus juggle with the more practical Saturn (organization) and the coach, Chiron. By Saturday’s First Quarter Moon in Leo, things smooth out and the discovery of the ideal solution appear possibly from someone far away, or from one of your ‘guardian angel’ friends or acquaintances. The week finishes on a high note — Sunday is the Sun’s day, which rules Leo, where we find the Moon l in Leo ready to play wholeheartedly. So get together with those you love and bask in their warmth.
