It’s set to be quite a month. April began with the New Moon in Aries last Thursday and ends with a New Moon Solar eclipse in Taurus on April 30th. Between those two planetary re-boots and renewals, the waters rise and rise on a great flood tide, thanks to the once in 166 years Jupiter/Neptune conjunction in Pisces on April 12th.
We are living in the chaordial, adrift between chaos and order without a map and you’re going to need all your inner resources to stay afloat and to find somewhere safe to drop anchor from time to time. More and more personal and collective boundaries will be breached. We’re already witnessing it playing out in: the war in Ukraine-territorial boundaries; Will Smith-physical boundary; massive cyber leaks-etheric boundaries; the Eastern Australia floods-climate and geo-physical boundaries; the start of unprecedented global price rises for food, fuel and basics……
This week, on Monday 4th, Mars conjuncts Saturn at 22° Aquarius exactly square the Taurus/Scorpio eclipse Nodes of Fate, semi-sextile Jupiter/Neptune in Pisces and sextile Disruptor Eris in Aries. Busy Mercury meets the Sun in Aries before aligning with the Galactic Centre – our planetary Homing Signal. On the world stage, the stakes rise as an irresistible force meets an immovable object.
As always, in your own life, choose to collaborate with the energies instead of resisting them. With Saturn together with Mars in Aquarius, start building your own version of Noah’s Ark, a sanctuary, safe place and inner space that will let you rise with the waters, protecting you and others from being washed away by the turbulence.
Don’t take it personally. You can only take responsibility for your own stuff and have compassion for others. Be kind. When you’re at the lowest, see if you can still muster some grace for somebody else.
Free Will is a brilliant cosmological design. You’re your own guru. Listen to your own wisdom. Remember the sleight-of-hand occurring right now; things look like one thing, then the narrative flips.

“Learning ultimate things the hard way. You have to put yourself totally into every realm to experience it for yourself, with a zeal for empirical wisdom or the wild edge of the scientific method. The experimental test case is yourself. And you are out there all alone in vast, uncharted territory, just the way you like it. You’ve been granted the chance to prove things, to follow them out quite far, bearing a determined intelligence with karmically-trained faculties of subtle perception. However, objectively speaking, this is an intensively arduous and relentless way to do it, without safeguards or precedents, relying upon the moment’s edge. If you can be tirelessly strong, doing it this ruggedly will prove to be the only way to go if you wish to uncover future territory without imprinting bias or distortion upon it. You just have to invent the wheel in yet another dimension.” – Inside Degrees Elias Lonsdale
Aries Weekly Forecast: April 3-10, 2022
The recent Aries New Moon kick-started both your personal New Year as well as the astrological New Year. This annual New Moon is a moment to slow down, look back over the past 12 months and realign yourself at all levels. It’s surprising how easy it is to keep pursuing goals, plans or dreams that are no longer relevant to who you have become. The best time to launch anything new – especially those connected with communication – is at the beginning of the week when the Sun and Mercury meet in your own sign and Mars and Saturn give you the momentum to turn vague ideas into workable plans.
Update and expand all your platforms.
Taurus Weekly Forecast: April 3-10, 2022

The one certainty is that you’re going to be extra busy this month. It may even feel as if time itself is speeding up. In your solar chart, following the recent Aries New Moon, there’s a lot of activity in your angle of groups and networks. Take some quiet time around the 2-4th April to think about all your alliances and to notice where and with whom you feel comfortable and where and with whom you feel like an outsider. Perhaps you don’t need to belong to everything for fear of missing out but instead enjoy making deeper connections with friends you are already close to. April 4th’s meeting of Mars and Saturn in farsighted Aquarius is perfect for making some concrete, practical plans to travel, study or be published in some form.
The rising tide of the Jupiter/Neptune conjunction is a reminder that you know more than you think…. and it’s time to prove it.

The recent New Moon in fellow Fire sign Aries puts travel, teaching and learning at the top of your agenda.

Walk away from confrontation.
Virgo Weekly Forecast: April 3-10, 2022
The waters of the rare Jupiter/Neptune conjunction – exact on April 12 – are rising, flooding your relationships with feelings and emotions of all kinds. Some of you may be falling in love with someone or something, others may be enjoying bursts of sheer creativity whilst still others may be dealing with unreliable partners who talk the talk but don’t walk the walk. Take some time out on April 4th when Mars meets Saturn and someone tries to block your progress and process. Just sidestep it and walk on by. Your personal planet Mercury is busy on your behalf all week, so make sure you talk in depth with those who can support your ideas.
Libra Weekly Forecast: April 3-10, 2022
It’s going to be a busy month, so make sure you re-balance emotionally after the recent New Moon in your partnership zone. On Monday April 4th, heavy hitters Mars and Saturn merge in Aquarius putting a dampener or an obstacle in the way of your having fun. Someone seems to be demanding more commitment from you. If so, decide what is negotiable and non-negotiable and stick to it. This is going to be even more important as the rare Jupiter/Neptune conjunction builds in Pisces – exact next week on April 12th – and boundaries of all kinds are easily breached. As a heads up, take extra good care of your health, wellbeing and physicality. If you are stressed or run down, don’t override it but take action – delegate more and don’t try to keep the peace by endlessly saying yes to everything.
The buck stops here.
Scorpio Weekly Forecast: February 27-March 6, 2022
April should prove to be a month for the memory books as the very rare meeting between Jupiter and Neptune in fellow water sign Pisces lights up your creativity and joie de vivre. Anything connected with romance, children, grandchildren, fun, leisure and the arts is extremely well starred. Not only should you stop to smell the roses but spend time beautifying your garden or enjoying your nearest green spaces. As Mars meets Saturn on Monday April 4th, you can make stunning progress on something to do with your home life. It could be a physical renovation coming to completion or a deepening of family bonds.
Pleasures both large and small.
Sagittarius Weekly Forecast: April 3-10, 2022
Out of all the signs, you will feel as if time is speeding up and running away from you. That’s because your own planet gas giant Jupiter is moving so rapidly, expanding everything he touches. Not only that, on April 12th Jupiter merges with Neptune for the first time in 166 years at the base of your chart, super-charging your home, your family, your tribe and your sense of belonging. On Monday the 4th, as Mars meets Saturn in your communication zone, important conversations can be had. You might need to clear the air with someone close or you may be asking for a deeper commitment. Watch out whilst traveling that day and stay calm.
Home is where the heart is.
Capricorn Weekly Forecast: April 3-10, 2022
The recent Aries New Moon at the base of your chart may have set you thinking quite deeply about your family heritage and how it has imprinted you with certain inner rules and beliefs. Just because your parents or teachers taught you something, doesn’t mean that it’s true or relevant to who you have become. Feel free to update your own thinking. This especially applies to your finances as Mars meets Saturn on Monday 4th in your angle of income. What behaviours are sabotaging your security and what are you going to do about it? Come up with a practical, viable plan to ditch overspending, reduce debt and build savings.
Remove those rose-tinted glasses before gas giants Neptune and Jupiter merge in Pisces and blur reality.
Aquarius Weekly Forecast: April 3-10, 2022
On Monday 4th, Mars makes a conjunction with Saturn in Aquarius. This combination can help you achieve a breakthrough in something you’ve been putting off for ages – probably a practical problem such as putting up a book shelf, doing your taxes, digging a pond or de-cluttering. Once you get going, there’ll be no stopping you. Its good timing as the Jupiter/Neptune conjunction in your income zone can give you the urge to splash the cash in an attempt to avoid reality. Expect money to flow in and then rush out just as quickly. Just make sure you seal up the leaks and are alert for a boom in scams and hoaxes.
Building personal security.
Pisces Weekly Forecast: April 3-10, 2022
If you’re feeling adrift, unanchored or lost, you’re already feeling the ripples from the approaching Jupiter/Neptune conjunction in your own sign. These are huge gas giants and when they come together, they can feel overwhelming. Depending on your personal astrology, some of you may be extra creative, full of innovative ideas to make a positive difference in the world. Others may be escaping reality through addictions, conspiracy theories and other forms of escapism. Under such a transit, the biggest trap is allowing others to influence you rather than trusting your own instincts. What you see is not what you get and hoaxers and scammers will be having a field day as will false gurus of all types.
Keep in mind there are no shortcuts or quick fixes.
