If we do not believe within ourselves, this deeply rooted feeling, that there is something higher than ourselves; we shall never find the strength and courage to evolve into something higher, greater.

Astrological Hotspots for April 2019 (events may trigger within three days of aspect, for some stronger aspects within week or more. Look to your own natal chart and transits for more exact prognosis).
“Know thyself.” ~Socrates
Marianne Williamson is running for President of the USA! Look her up on line and please send her $1 to a million. Help get her on the big debates. She is wonderful and could change the world for the better! Peace and Love with intelligence!
April 2nd for few days in USA chart transit of Venus opposes USA ascendent while conjunct USA Uranus, lots of good and difficult love/sex energies. Depending on other aspects in chart, can be either really fun or troublesome when it comes to relationships, money, fun. Highly creative and lively for some.
April 5th New Moon ~ In Aries brings new initiatives and attempts at forward motion for fire signs. Cardinal signs feel forced to grow or feel thwarted. Opportunities arise next two weeks but nothing seems safe enough. Acting out of freedom is good when creative artistic sense of good, true, beautiful prevail. Here deeper feelings of the heart need conjoin head long impulsive thrusts.
“I cannot teach anybody anything. I can only make them think” ― Socrates
The division of philosophy and poetry is an illness (..or truth and music for that matter. –me). ~Novalis
April 9th-10th Venus conjunct Uranus, Sun square Saturn, Jupiter stationary retrograde, and mercury sextile pluto. Big news days around this time. Lots of crazy events, over the top, and bottom lines. Need to feel alive and creative within safe boundaries. Trying to control others or give ultimatums can backfire here; yet creativity and expressions of freedom hard to hold back. Sudden creative urges for love/sex/creativity arise but must find long term productivity and co-creative mutual coordination with other(s) or face tough road conditions and severe weather, karmic retro fallback. Here freedom clashes with authority or old time religion. Over idealized projections here get grounded. For some its a time of hard earned fun and pleasure, traveling or plans to travel. Tendency to be too over the top happy go lucky, or too serious and overworked. Strong need to rethink what will truly help one be happy at both work and play. Some parts sweet times and weather, other parts severe weird extremes in weather, hot and cold vibes. Lots of energy to accomplish the mission. Be sure not to use force or cold power plays when warmth and loving kindness would have opened the door for you.
“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.” ~Socrates
April 12th Sun square Pluto. In USA Chart with Sagittarius Rising, Mars transit is opposing USA Ascendent and conjuncting Uranus; could be a wild couple days here with sudden shocks or crashes or shoot outs or alarming news and heavy debate once again about guns and ‘everything’. Many may feel like their being attacked. We do seem to be in a scapegoat mentality as well as a ‘fight to be free’ intensification. Good side of Mars is courage for truth and bravery/bravado. For some its spring time and OMG feelings of dying to be born or reborn again. Avoid feeling pulled down by over indulgence or negative vibrations. Good time to turn over a new leaf, exercise, better one’s diet, rejuvenate or degenerate aspect. Avoid jealousy and negative emotions. Feelings of death and rebirth, endings and new beginnings. Where a door closes , a new chapter begins.
We can easily forgive a child
who is afraid of the dark,
the real tragedy of life
is when men are afraid of the light.
“Strong minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, weak minds discuss people.” ~Socrates
April 14th , Sun trine Jupiter and Venus sextile Pluto makes for a pleasant day for many, intimacy and friendships, socially good and friendly joyful, outgoing, positive energetic for travel, play, sharing.
“By all means marry; if you get a good wife, you’ll become happy; if you get a bad one, you’ll become a philosopher.” ~Socrates
April 15th Venus square Jupiter, love yourself and others, be the peace and love you hope to receive. Avoid over doing or worrisome thoughts gnawing.
“The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.” (early emptiness practice, space equanimity? Did Soc read Osho? ~rt)
April 18- 19th Full Moon 29 Libra. Sense trying to find balance and charm in life. Need to cut out people, relations, things, that drain and leak, not promoting nor supporting better futures. Important with Moon going into Scorpio 8:40 am est, that for next week to lay low, avoid unneeded going nowhere debates or criticisms. Pretty much crass materialists always blame and dependent on others for their depression, sadness, happiness. Spiritual people blame themselves, work on themselves, for change and progress. Sometimes we can changer outer for better, yes; but always work on yourself for the big changes, growing opportunities, and sense of well being. See Gelek Rinpoche’s Odyssey to Freedom book, or Osho’s Book of Secrets (on sale at mayflower bookshop), or Steiner’s Knowledge of the Higher Worlds for techniques to know and grow, spiritually advance quick.
“Learning to see things in light of a higher learning, a divine plan perhaps taking lifetimes to play out, is the beginning of wisdom. Entering the spiritual path consists of learning how to quicken what nature is taking too long to do; learning how to midwife or awaken the divine, the virtue, in all things and people; learning to intelligently love the core, the Christos, the sun spark, the holy deep divine, in and of any situation or person while learning to be still if nothing can be done. For spiritually advanced players, nothing can be done for sure. The Holy Emptiness is the virgin possibility at core, the infinite potential and virtue of ultimate truth and love. Always good to get the truth first, then sweet the flow and flower to follow. When love comes first its hard truth that follow.” ~robert of mayflower
April 20 Sun enters Taurus, Venus enters Aries. Here one feels like grounding, making something happen, manifest, grow; but also push for some thing new and more colorful to arrive and/or find you.
“Always prefer knowledge to wealth, for the one is transitory, the other perpetual.” ~Socrates
April 22 Sun conjunct Uranus. Lots of patience needed in love life, intense friendships, emotional drama now into end of month. Things in your life not bringing desired results are intensified and under scrutiny. Have patience and compassion with yourself and loved ones as you work for right solutions and doors to open, close, and open again. Such Uranus aspect now brings strong urge to rise to the next higher level in the game or investment of time/money/self. Short lived successes. A quickening or a sudden shifting of gears to make it or break it, shake it up, and wake it up. Earth shaking news or more just plowing through no matter what. For many a reversal or sudden turn of events causing stir and reconsideration of the map. Revelations and sudden facts shift the picture and direction.
“When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser.” ~Socrates
April 24th-25th Pluto goes retrograde and moon occults Saturn and Pluto. Serious moon for a few days. Big time power plays and legal matters occupy the mind for some. Difficulties top down, bottom up. Many step back and take serious look at last year and year to come. Many deep minded researchers and investor reviewing and taking hard look at future. Things have way of dragging out……good or bad. Could be too cold in parts, other parts too hot.
‘Truth whose center is everywhere….whose existence we cannot dis-imagine.’ ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
April 26-27 Mars square Neptune. Although good aspect for the wild high side of the arts/music/romance and active imagination, movies; such aspect can get too colorful and off track in more practical material matters. Mishaps, accidents, danger of making serious mistakes, lies, wrong words, insane actions, car or machine troubles, water/sea/oceanic/space craziness. Hard to tell the truth or what is really truly up aspect. Misguided intentions and good intentions paving the road to hell with idiot compassion and foolish masquerade. Deceit or caught in the act, deception, desire to escape or disappear, strange news, fears and phobias. Theft/lies/lipstick/inflation followed by deflation. Sometimes very good for the arts and music, but just as often things go astray. Good time to read Rudolf Steiner’s deepest books, get a new water filter, avoid foods too rich or toxic, avoid over doing meds, drugs, alcohol, garden, get outdoors, write songs and poems. Staying grounded and practical down to earth honest simple best policy with this aspect. Strange dreams around this day need be written down and thought about. Avoid foods that spoil easy. Try not to spoil self or other these daze. UFO and weird sightings, ghosts and more, abound. Imaginative experience and make believe.
Divine Souls are older and younger than themselves and other things. ~ Emerson
April 29th, Saturn goes retrograde till mid august making Capricorns, Cancer, Libra, Aries rethink their long term goals and needs for security while not limiting their creative imaginations for joy, good luck, happiness. Tendency for some parts to be too hot, others too cold. Saturn retrograde good for regulating, disciplining a bit for progress toward securing goals, good for yoga/meditation/exercise/healthy eating/not over indulging. Taurus and Virgo, even Capricorns may benefit at this time with rooting in deeper and achieve well earned rewards, happy returns, maturing of wisdom qualities. So many now may have or feel the ‘cold shoulder’ (Saturn near S.Node makes it hard to escape or ‘get off’ ground. Patience wins the day when humor and good work applied. Good for long slow dinners with friends. As Saturn transit retrogrades to square USA Saturn and nearly oppose USA Sun, could be tough time for farmers, heavy controls on Stock Markets to keep positive spirit, and further needs to address out of hand addictions in country; beer/food prices rising?!
“The great things of this world are not born in noise and tumult, but in intimacy and stillness.” ~Rudolf Steiner
