The video version of this forecast, as read by Kelly, is available here.
4/17 ~ Mercury (thoughts) ~sextile~ Venus (art & beauty):
This is a great opportunity to beautify your ideas, improve or deepen them so they are expressing more of your unique authenticity. Communication in relationships usually goes well under this influence. This energy also turns your thoughts and ideas toward how you feel and what inspires you with love & beauty. This is a great time to be particularly creative, or do something that activates your own Inner Artist. It is best to keep it light and let go of your mundane burdens just for a time. Pleasure reading, a walk on the beach, a play or museum are all good things to do at some point this week, if possible.
4/17 ~ Mercury (your thinking) ~conjunct~ Uranus (the Awakener):
It is said that this energy depends on your “normal mental speed” which is not the same as intelligence. If your mind is naturally quick, then you will be downloading more than usual during this Initiation. Uranus acts as a Lightning Rod that strikes and briefly illuminates an area of your life, in this case, Taurus, a new embodiment for one and all. Ah-ha moments will lead to more strength & stability, but only to the degree that you are consistent & dedicated yourself. If you are in like-hearted circles, the conversations could be really stimulating, unlocking perceptions across the board. If your mind is not naturally quick, then this will be helpful for you as you are more likely to experience awakenings and connections to your own intuition that help strengthen it within you. The Shadow side to this energy is being over-sensitive and jumping to conclusions. Test & Ground your insights before hardwiring them into your Being in any kind of way. An over-taxed nervous system is widely available for all, so try to connect with Mother Earth often. Whatever gets zapped (loosened) can thus be moved to the compost pile. Whatever gets illuminated (becomes conscious) is to be further investigated for merit, but valuable nonetheless. Keep records of these ah-ha moments as you won’t be able to immediately act on all of them at the same time and, those you cannot (at this time) often turn into nuggets of gold in your future.
4/18 ~ Venus (relationships, love & money) ~sextile~ Uranus (clarity & inspiration):
This energy, thanks to Uranus, activates a certain spark of electricity in the air. New relationships will have an unusual aspect to them and old ones can break-to-realign in a positive, even fun way with this energy. No monotonous routine, humdrum people or boring collaborations with this one. Use it to access your own unique genius and deep well of creativity and then share if you can, with other like-hearted Souls. Take advantage of this energy to tap into areas you may not have realized were available to you before now. Keep it light and upbeat; socialize and enjoy the experience of different people or new activities. Keep in mind, however, any relationships begun this week may not be based on qualities needed for long term survival. It is more of a time to enjoy the people and experiences that pass through and accept this as a gift!
4/18 ~ 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 the 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 14-years into the 16-year process of transformation – which is an incredibly potent point in time & space. It is here that you have the most information to consciously work with as you prepare for the final 2-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 any loose ends, close multiple chapters, mourn if you must and move on. As you do that, you will feel lighter & brighter and more grounded in your true Self, your evolved Self.
4/20 ~ Juno Enters PISCES (until 1.13.2023):
Juno, the Divine Consort, rules your most important relationships & partnerships, as well as what you are deeply committed to. She will spend an extended period in *PISCES* ~ 4.20.2022 thru 1.13.2023 ~ that’s about 9-months to incubate a New Vision of how we can partner with Nature in new ways and relate with each other on deeper, more intimate levels after being put through so much social & collective trauma over the last 2+ years. This is an opportunity to heal within and with others, it is a chance to process & integrate on a whole new level. This supports deep emotional processing so that we can interact with others in healthier ways too. Pisces activates a certain idealism, hopes & dreams, in this case, around our relationships, partnerships & collaborations. So we will also have to recalibrate the boundaries along the way so that going forward, we can be more effective. The Shadow that we have to deal with comes in the form of disillusionment, withdrawal, escapism into fantasy, self-deception, martyrdom & victimization, which is what happens when these Piscean idealistic expectations are not met.
Last time Juno was in Pisces was 2.23.2018
Next time Juno will be in Pisces is 1.14.2027
So if you listened to the above Energetic Support, you would’ve heard me discuss how Venus & Mars are hooking up with the Piscean Crew (Jupiter/Neptune) to Initiate a New Cycle too. Juno is also all up and in the mix and Vesta will complete the mission at the end of the year in a deep & powerful way. Vesta is ‘what is Sacred’ to you the individual and she already lingered in Aquarius to re-set our Sovereignty in a big way, so moving into Pisces allows us to reconnect to our own true Spirit & Nature in a completely new & different way than ever before. Juno goes into Pisces on 4/20 and doesn’t get to Aries until 1.13.2023 and Vesta goes into Pisces on 11/20 until 2.7.2023. The reason this is relevant is because Juno will also hook up with Uranus & North Node in Taurus, creating an opportunity to facilitate real change in a literal way. As you upgrade your physicality to handle these higher frequencies, your life starts to flow effortlessly. I don’t mean everything will be easy & fun all the time, what I mean is that you start to live truer to your own Nature, so Nature Herself responds in kind and starts lining up miracles customized for you! Pisces & Taurus is a delicious combo – one dreams it up and the other cultivates kinship and creates beautiful & functional structures that last a very long time. That could be US!! Our bodies – Mother’s Body – all Life is evolving right now so let’s consciously co-create.
