Mercury transits to Aries April 2019. This Planey rules how we think, interpret information, and form connections. When the Planet ruling communication is in Aries, conversations take on a direct tone!
Aries is bold, rash, and independent. As a Cardinal Fire sign, this energy moves at a high vibrational frequency. Actions with this energy have an intense outpouring of focus and determination.
Full Moon in Libra – Friday 4/19/2019 4:12AM
Want to know when is the Full Moon in April 2019? The April Full Moon is very special because the Sun and Moon are directly opposite in the Cardinal Zodiac signs of Aries and Libra. This is the second time that we have a full moon in this sign within the same year. This is a very rare opportunity to manifest!
Remember, Cardinal signs initiate new chapters in our lives. Aries, is an aggressive sign representing identity and individuality. Its’ opposite, Libra, represents the balance in relationships.
This is your second chance to connect with your sense of self! The Full Moon in these signs represents an opportunity to bridge the gap between your personal needs and the needs of others. If you didn’t “get it” last time, now is your chance!
So maybe you didn’t take the time for self-care because you thought it was selfish. Allow me to passionately shout to the stars that Self Care Is Not Selfish! Taking Care of Self is Not Selfish. Disallowing yourself to share your gifts to the world due to poor self care and self image is totally Selfish! So Take Care of Yourself so you have More to give!
Sun Enters Taurus– Saturday 4/20/2019 1:55AM
Spring is cemented as the Sun moves into Taurus. Taurus is an Earth sign ruled by the Goddess of Love, Venus. Venus is seductive, beautiful, and artistic. The best activities to focus on during Taurus season include grounded self care- sensing a theme here?
As the second sign in the Zodiac, Taurus represents security and resources. With the force and energy to create firm foundations, Taurus is unrelentingly firm. As a Fixed Sign, Taurus stabilizes Spring.
Venus Enters Aries – Saturday 4/20/2019 9:11AM EST
Venus rules love, money, values, and aesthetic preferences. So when Venus enters Aries, love, money and what we value, take on similar qualities.
But Aries is in his fall under Venus. The excess of estrogen shrinks his… well you know what! So expect a little volatility in the areas of love, money, and values.
This energy is very passionate so expect calm heads to prevail.
