The video version of this forecast, as read by Kelly, is available here.
Note from Kelly:
Ok y’all, this week is going to be intense one way or another. There is a lot to cover and this update is a little longer than most, so grab some tea and your journal and prepare for a personal *Check-IN* with this one! The personal planets in Aries are in a growth position with Pluto the Transformer but there are also these blessings & opportunities woven in as well so I don’t want you to get too caught up in what is ending or leaving your life. Right now, we are basking in the “clean slate” energy of Aries – give yourself the gift of renewal at this time and tap into the literal balance that is available at this time. There is also this delicious combined energies of Mercury in Aries, Mars in Gemini & Jupiter in Aquarius so even as we are transforming from the inside-out, we are also being nudged by this crew to expand the vision of what we believe is actually possible for ourselves, each other or the planet. But take from it what works for you and circle back to the rest when you need to since this is such a rich, complex week of Activations.
Weekly Forecast: April 11 – 17, 2021
4/11 ~ Venus (your values) ~square~ Pluto (transformation):
This activation brings intensity and it challenges you to grow (out of comfort zone, into new territory) where your relationships & finances are concerned. It creates very intense emotional responses and experiences with others that tend to trigger insecurities or hidden fears in one or both of you. Stability is not really part of the equation at the moment, so prepare for inevitable change. You’ve probably already felt it coming (the shift in your relationship or financial situation), well, it’s here now, so you can be proactive on your own behalf or you can suffer the consequences of postponing the inevitable. (You may have heard me say: Pay now or pay double later. That applies to this transit too.) The natural reaction may be to try to hold on to the job or relationship, but try not to give into that temptation. Pluto intensifies everything and the more you resist the necessary purification & change that Pluto brings, the more painful it usually is. It is better to clarify your values & priorities and choose change, rather than have it forced (more Pluto) upon you. Either way, once the dust settles, you should be better off because things either change for the better or go away altogether making room for something new and more in-alignment with your values & priorities of ‘now’.
4/11 ~ ARIES New Moon:
This is an annual Initiation of the New You, the New Year and a brand New Beginning that is available for those who choose the New, leave the Old/Past behind, and bravely stepping into the unknown. The Libra Full Moon (3/28) may have revealed where more *Internal Balance* is required for you to truly anchor this Emerging Identity. It may have also revealed where more *External Balance* is required for you to maintain relationships or agreements with others (or not). Most likely, some of both will manifest. This is an annual opportunity to release imbalances within ourselves and our relationships or environment, anything that is preventing the Aries/New Beginning from unfolding naturally. The Capricorn Last Qtr Moon (4/4) illuminated what you, personally, are responsible for at this and where being organized is helpful. You are on completely new ground now and the Aries New Moon launches us all to the next level. Consider how much has been cleared and released just in the last year alone. This first *Seed Point* is vital to the next 6-12 months of growth and expansion. It is truly time to close out and release anything no longer essential to your reality or evolution. The message is: Don’t Rush and Neither Postpone. This is the week to dedicate your Self to taking responsibility for whatever you have chosen to create, then consciously prepare to go for it in the very near future! Any residual imbalances can be released with the Scorpio Super/Full Moon (4/26). This month’s lunation sets us up for some very new territory, stay alert and present, especially when navigating the world or negotiating with others.
4/12 ~ Juno Retro in SAG (until Aug 2nd):
This may be minor to others but I think this is a good one to consciously co-create with. Juno rules how we partner whether it is relationships, collaborations or simply working with others in our everyday worlds. It takes her 4-5 years to move through Aries-Pisces and so the last time she was in Sagittarius was the end of 2016-beginning of 2017. Reflecting on your relationships, partnerships & collaborations of that time, may inform you at this time while she lingers in Sagittarius. This influence now tells us that it is time to have *Meaning & Truth* in our exchanges. We don’t have to agree to love each other but we definitely need some common ground otherwise why partner up in the first place. Use the next 4-months to review the conscious equal partnerships in your life and look for where you can improve them. This is a great support for working on a shared vision with a partner or group.
4/13 ~ Sun (confidence) ~sextile~ Mars (action):
This is an excellent time for action! You may have some good, positive energy brewing that, if it does not find an outlet, could turn negative or destructive. So DO something – get moving – take action! Work on accomplishing some long sought-after goals, physical, spiritual, emotional, mental or material. The Universe supports action at this time. Call in help from other like-minded souls – reach out – share this energy and see where it leads. During this kind of energy, you could secure a stronger position and if you have to fight for something, you will do so more effectively with this energetic support.
4/14 ~ Venus Enters TAURUS (until May 8th):
Venus in its home sign of Taurus brings our attention to the body, pleasure, sensuality, the experience of being in a body and all the possibilities inherent in that. It draws our attention to Mother Earth and the Garden or rare, blue gem that She is and how much we need to value that as sacred and precious. It is also time to double-down on clarifying your own values & priorities in real-time. When she is in Libra, she is equally powerful but she is also more focused on the essence or invisible link of kinship that we share with all life. It is an idea or an ideal. When she is in Taurus, it is more the reality that we are experiencing in our bodies, where is the feast or famine in your life in general? Let’s address any famines or neglect of essential parts of our nature, which is finding the body to be a pleasurable experience versus one of pain, fear or frustration. It’s time to cultivate your life like a Garden, where you plant a diverse number of plants that produce food or flowers – that would be the substance you take into your body as well as the beauty you radiate out from your heart-center. This is a great time to re-connect with what gives you a sense of belonging & fulfillment, nourishment & pleasure.
4/15 ~ Sun (core Self) ~sextile~ Jupiter (optimism):
This energy is sometimes considered “lucky” but the success you achieve under this influence, is more likely due to a positive outlook and clear vision of who you are and what you want. Your life is expanding, your self-understanding is deepening and it will be easier to be around other people of higher consciousness, improving things and creating opportunities that benefit a larger number of people. There is a healthy dose of optimism around some grand plan, and things are moving, but make sure to do the foundation work to support this larger vision as it manifests in reality. If you are a teacher/guide/leader of any sort, this energy supports your group efforts, so giving workshops, seminars or new classes is totally supported and will benefit you, while serving others.
4/16 ~ Sun (illumination) ~square~ Pluto (transformation):
This is a challenge to grow out of your comfort zone and into new territory. That said, with Pluto in Capricorn (2008-2024), twice a year for these 16-years, when the Sun is in Aries (Spring) and Libra (Fall), we get an opportunity to grow & change in fundamental departments of life: self vs other and home vs work. In this case, and during these years, we are literally changing how we do ALL of this. Each year builds on the previous and we are now 13-years into the 16-year process of transformation. It is here that you have the most information to consciously work with as you prepare for the next 3-years, and ultimately, what you would like to get out of your conscious efforts and dedication. Sun helps us clarify and when working with Pluto, it is usually what is NOT working, what has run its course and is ready to be composted into new Life, new growth and a new direction (for Self). Pluto is the Purifyer, distilling things back to their true and original essence, fight that and it can be painful, work with it consciously and it can be transformative and will heal at the deepest root of any challenge. You can use this activation to honor that which has become obvious, or is highlighted in the here & now and purge or purify this energy. You are deeply supported for releasing old patterns and setting new conscious practices into action. Tie up loose ends, close multiple chapters, mourn & move on. As you do that, you will feel lighter & brighter and more grounded in your true Self, your evolved Self.
4/17 ~ Mars (energy) ~trine~ Jupiter (enthusiasm):
This energy is generally positive as you are combining your energy & desires with an expansion of consciousness. It’s especially good for anything physical and bodes well for outcomes to any competition. You will be channeling more energy than usual so be sure to check in with your body and stay grounded. Jupiter often brings blessings that others may perceive as ‘luck’ but it is more of an alignment between the inner & outer. Even if things are hazy or crazy, do your best to visualize success and put your Self in the picture ; -) You will have a great overall perspective of the “big picture” and can plan accordingly, with this energy. The only caveat with this energy is to avoid being OVERLY confident where you feel invincible. Be confident, not cocky. This energy is very good for knowing what you need and being capable of making succinct decisions about the course which will get you there. Calculated risks are the name of the game!
4/17 ~ Mercury (your voice) ~sextile~ Jupiter (expansion):
Where the above (Sun sextile Jupiter) is more about YOU, this activation is more about your consciousness, ideas, thoughts & concepts (Mercury), which Jupiter expands in some way, helping you to ‘think bigger’, edit your personal Story and step up your game in some kind of way. This is also a great energy to work with if you are in school, learning something new, expanding your knowledge base or gathering new tools & information to support your goals. Your dreams are tapping you on the shoulder, demanding some attention. Mundane issues are not your concern right now, you want to figure out how to create the life you’ve been imagining. This energy also provokes within you the awareness & understanding that being generous naturally attracts generosity to you. The big picture and overall patterns which have led you to this point are being brought into the light. Feeling clear, sharp, alert and optimistic, you begin to realize that anything you can imagine (or remember), you can achieve.
4/17 ~ Mercury (expression) ~sextile~ Mars (passion):
This is a healthy selfish energy (aka self-preservation). Do not hold back this week. If you have a big dream or a serious goal that you have been working toward, then this is the time that may attract the assistance you need from the Universe. This is definitely a “work” energy, however, it brings with it the caveat that it is best if you work alone on something important to you. No one else is (or ever will be) as dedicated to your goal as YOU will be, nor should you expect them to be. You are now connected to the extra energy it takes to push your goals to the next level, bringing you a sense of accomplishment while outlining the next tasks to be done. Opportunities present themselves all the time, all you have to do is be ready!! If you are given the opportunity to make a presentation, then go for it! Your clarity, energy & enthusiasm will be unmatched and that’s what people respond to. Don’t choose this time to be “shy” or doubt that you’re ready – you are definitely ready … otherwise you wouldn’t be here!! One of my favorite sayings is: “At the moment of commitment, the Universe conspires to assist you!” It’s time to decide if you are committed and how truly committed you are, to your own success.
4/17 ~ Mercury (ideas, thoughts & concepts) ~square~ Pluto (rebirth & transformation):
This energy is a tough, yet powerful one. Its Highest expression would be to focus on your inner deep-dig, discovery & development. It enables you to look beneath the surface to some core drives and gain some valuable insights and thus, choose a plan of action based on your findings. You will want to know all the hidden meanings behind decisions you’ve made or want to make soon. Dig – you may find more than you think you’re ready for, but apparently the Universe thinks differently! Pay attention and try not to worry about what anyone else thinks or believes. This energy’s flip-side is to make you obsess over one particular idea and try to force others to your way of thinking. That is a bottomless pit – you cannot truly change the way other people think – you can only change the way you think and hope it enlightens others along the way … and it will, for those who are tuned into your level or your frequency so try to only focus on you and your direction.
