Break the Routine — Forecast for April 19th – 25th


This week’s headline items: Mercury changes signs from Aries to Taurus on Monday morning — and the Sun follows suit that afternoon. Very early on Tuesday, the first Quarter Moon in Leo becomes exact, and later that day, Pluto’s Station intensifies. Last but not least, on Friday morning, Mars changes signs from Gemini to Cancer.

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Monday evening (for a little over 6 hours), Thursday morning (for a little over an hour), and Saturday morning (for a little over 5 hours).

Now, this week’s Forecast…

Monday, April 19th:

Monday, the Moon remains in protective, nurturing Cancer all day. It will journey there until Tuesday very early morning. With this Moon placement, we are more sensitive to what people say and therefore our feelings are more easily hurt — so be kind to yourself and others. Self-Care is key for the today 😉

Emotional safety is important to us as well; we like connecting to the familiar and we enjoy nurturing ourselves and others — home and family call to us, for instance. Make sure though, that your glass is filled before letting others drink from it, otherwise you might start to feel drained and resentful.

Monday at 6:29am EDT, Mercury changes signs from enthusiastic, fast-paced Aries to steady, peaceful Taurus, where it will journey until May 3rd. For the next 2 weeks, our thinking shifts gears: we want to connect to others in a realistic, down-to-earth way and we “say it like it is”. We appreciate common sense; we rely on our senses when it comes to processing information.

A well-developed sense of color, smell, and touch are characteristic of this Mercury position, so as long as Mercury is in Taurus, we will be drawn towards the “tasteful” in the realm of the five senses. We are more likely to have a no-nonsense approach to decision-making, and our ideas are often very practical and useful at this time.

When it comes to learning, we prefer demonstrations, concrete answers, and basic concepts for the next 2 weeks. We learn best when we see real-world uses for the theories we are trying to absorb. We simply process information better when we can personalize it (“what use is it to me?”) and attach it to the practical world.

Do you have your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus? If so, you may feel more talkative during this time. Do you have your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini or Virgo? If so, you may need to slow down and “smell the roses” 😉

Monday at 4:33pm EDT, the Sun also changes signs from bold, courageous Aries to steady, peaceful Taurus; it will journey there  until May 20th. For the next four and a half weeks our attention is on physical pleasures and we are more aware of our need for comfort and consistency. The Sun in Taurus reminds us to slow down and smell the roses.

We are able to be very consistent and methodical, which helps us bring groundedness and reality to our new goals. We focus on what is most important to us. What do you value most? How do you feel about yourself and what you bring to the table?

All this is especially true if you are a Leo or Taurus Sun-sign or Rising-sign. As a Taurus, you will feel a good dose of confidence and playfulness in the next 4.5 weeks; as a Leo your vitality will most likely slow down and you might indulge in physical or material pleasures.

Monday at 8:03pm EDT, we enter a Moon VoC that will last for a little over 6 hours, until 2:11am EDT (Tuesday very early morning). Use this intuitive time to remain flexible and practice self-care — take good care of your emotional and physical body…
