Astrolgical Smorgasboard: April 15-26, 2009

At this time, so much is shifting; so much is being transmuted as we awaken.  Times of feeling ‘breakthrough’ in the etheric are followed by times of grief and heaviness for many.  It is important to remember that we are not alone, and this is part of a greater process.  From quite a number of empaths I know – and my own intuition is backing this – I’m hearing these next couple of weeks are intense times indeed.

Astrologically, this next period of 11 days is massively significant.

Here’s a summary of my recent research of this period.  Engage intuition & check out all this good stuff!! —

Wed Apr 15, 2am PSTURANUS-MARS CONJUNCT (in cusp of Pisces/Aquarius). Did you feel the aggression prior to Wednesday morning?… Did you feel it shift from Tuesday to Wednesday?  Very interesting to note that, like the major conjunct below, this one happens also on the cusp of Pisces and Aquarius (our current astrological position in the precession of equinoxes).

Thu, Apr 16VENUS RETROGRADE ENDS. This is one significant bit here.  Venus is the feminine expression in us, harmonizing.  We can expect less suppression of emotions/mind/depth; and more harmony in this aspect of quest the next couple of weeks.

Sat, Apr 18SUN ENTERS ARIES. This is the SIDEREAL NEW YEAR, if you take Aries to be the first sign of the zodiac.  Again, going by the actual position of the sky.  Western astrology does NOT LOOK AT THE ACTUAL POSITIONS of the heavens (google Sidereal or Vedic astrology to know more).  But more importantly, this signifies new birth.

Sun, Apr 19, 8am PSTMOON-JUPITER CONJUNCT (in Capricorn). Our nurturing mind and emotions (Moon) is enhanced by the conjunct with our expanding, truth-oriented nature (Jupiter) – and vice versa.  Setting the stage for the coming week…

Tue, Apr 21VENUS-MARS CONJUNCT BEGINS, and continues for the next 2.5 months (!). This is a very rare event.  If you look at a timelapse of this motion, it could not be positioned more powerfully; nor in a way that makes for a longer conjuncting period.  In every human being, our male and female expressions are being guided to come together.  This coming together of the masculine and feminine starts next week and for the next couple of months.  THIS IS A KEY PART TO INTERNAL EXPRESSION OF THE GREAT WORK.  It will also, of course, manifest in our shared external reality.
Details: When this is examined in detail, we see that Venus actually starts behind Mars as the travel together, then ‘catches’ and passes Mars on exactly the SUMMER SOLSTICE June 21, and they continue to travel together until they reach Taurus & the Pleiades, around July 10.  Venus and Mars are actually within 7degrees of each other from the entire period between April 14 and July 10.  What’s more: where Venus and Mars come together, is actually on the cusp of Pisces very close to Aquarius (where we currently are positioned in the precession of equinoxes)!!
Ok get ready…

Wed, Apr 22MOON OCCULTS (ECLIPSES) VENUS FOR EXACTLY 1 HOUR. You literally cannot make this stuff up.  The Moon occults Venus (in Pisces) from 5:31am – 6:31am PST on this day.  Mars (conjunct w/ Venus) and Uranus are also in Pisces, strengthening this effect.
Details: This is a *very* key piece to the whole event that is happening in this period.  Venus (our feminine expression) is essentially reborn — and it is reborn in PISCES, where Venus expresses itself the STRONGEST of any sign.  Keep in mind this is happening at the precise time of the coming together with Mars (masc/fem divine union)….
Okay… there is more:

Fri, Apr 24NEW MOON (in Aries). Remember the Sun just entered Aries (the first sign), signifying rebirth of the outer?  Moon now signifies rebirth of the inner…. just 6 days later.  This leads us to…

Sun, Apr 26, 12:00pm-3:00pm PSTMOON-PLEIADES CONJUNCT & OCCULT (in Taurus). Ok, this is really big, especially considering that the moon will actually will be occulting most of the Pleiades at 1:30pm.  (Basically like a “Pleiadian eclipse”.)  In addition, the Moon is in its strongest sign here – Taurus.  The Moon will be just a 40-hour old sliver when this happens.  Though the moon comes within a few degrees of the Plieades once a month, the Moon actually occulting/eclipsing the Pleiades is a very rare event.
What This Means: The moon (our mind / emotions / inner feminine) will be really pulling in some Pleiadian energy here – big time.  I will not presume to say exactly what this will mean in the larger context, but in summary it will support what is going on with the coming together of the masculine & feminine that we so clearly see.  I sense it is the final push (or “pull” in of some strong feminine & conjoining energies) during this intense period.

IN SUMMARY, all within the next 11 days:

Venus ends her retrograde and comes together with Mars.  They will be traveling together for 2.5 months, until July 10.  (Closest conjunct is on the summer solstice, June 21.)  So, expect masculine and feminine energies harmonizing and coming together on the planet, and in each of us.

The Sun (coming into Aries), the Moon (new moon in Aries), Venus (occult by the Moon), and the Pleiades (occult by the Moon) are ALL reborn symbolically.  Venus is reborn in Pisces (her strongest).  So, expect rebirth on both planetary and individual scales.

This is like a smorgasboard of astro-goodies.  The intense work that so many are involved in; that so many light beings are feeling, is going to really be supported and we’re all going to see and feel some big breakthroughs.  You may very well enjoy this.  At the very least it’s a huge opportunity…!!

Ps. If you’d like to how this will all play out visually, I really recommend downloading a free opensource skychart program called Stellarium – it is really handy and a lot of fun.
