Sun is Aries, 21° 33'
Moon is Libra, 21° 33'
The Sun in Aries and the moon in Libra are activating the T-square with Jupiter retrograde (Libra), Uranus (Aries), and Pluto in Capricorn. The is a strong group of planets that are pushing back for power and control. There are likely to be clashes during this Full Moon that culminate in unhappy endings. Jupiter's retrograde is acting more like a Saturn transit, expecting us to conform to authority, but we may see little that we agree with, and instead resist the authoritarian perspective. The moon is encouraging us to find balance in all this. Emotionally, we may feel off kilter with others' expectations that do not align with our own. Taking a deep breath and regrouping before acting brings more clarity.
Mercury in Taurus is retrograde. This transit can help us with the mulling process of our thoughts. There may be a more natural tendency to reflect and/or reconsider everything before communicating our intentions or ideas. Mercury stationed retrograde on April 9, will move back into Aries later in April, ending retrograde motion on May 3. There may be issues with traveling, orders placed online, and all forms of mailing/communications while Mercury is retrograde.
Venus in Pisces is forming a sextile to Mars in Taurus and square to Saturn retrograde in Sagittarius. Our natural talents and skills are amplified while Venus moves through Pisces. Mars in Taurus helps us to feel more connected with others that we already have bonds with on some level. However, Saturn's connection here can cause some levels of frustration, especially from individuals who intentionally want to block us from feeling any form of success.
Mars is trine to Pluto, providing us some sense of intuition when others attempt to BS us. We are more able to resist temptation and we are less gullible. There's also an inner strength that allows us to break free from situations that may have paralyzed us in the past. Adding in Saturn retrograde's trine to Uranus, there is added sense of defiance to resist against others who try to force us to comply with their will. There's a lot of perseverance and determination to express our desire for freedom from oppression, found within this chart of the Pink Full Moon.
Jupiter will station direct motion in about two months. Saturn stationed into retrograde motion on April 5. We can enjoy the fact that both Jupiter and Saturn are in retrograde motion at the same time, which balances the two in a way that Jupiter may feel more Saturn like, while Saturn will feel more Jupiter like.
All in all, even with all the planetary interactions with the Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto T-square, we have more strength and determination to push back against the powers of oppression. While the "overlords" want us to be more like minions, we are not feeling like that's in our best interest. While at the same time, we have some of the insight that is needed to assess our situations so that our actions are more protective and productive. There's a nice balance between the masculine and feminine receptives that helps with knowing when and how to blend in with conformance in mind, while at the same time, there's the ability to counteract the dominance that others may feel is necessary to keep everyone in line. There's a good balance of placements in all four elements, feeding our intellectual, physical, emotional and intuitive abilities. We have the ability to lead when necessary, and to align with the team to make ourselves stronger.
Blessings to you for the Passover and Easter season.
