Astro Magic Forecast for April 2024

April2024 AstroMagic 400px

Welcome to the month of April. We have the biggest aspect of the year, as Jupiter conjoins Uranus in Taurus and a massive Solar Eclipse in Aries. We also have Mercury retrograde, which begins the month on April Fool’s Day.

Let’s dive into all the magical goodies this month has to offer.

5 Ways to Make the Most Out of Taurus Season

  1. Earth Magic: How often do you use skin lotions to keep your skin soft and youthful? For many, it’s part of their daily routine. Did you know when you were slathering those creams all over your body, you were doing earth magic? Well, now you do! The element of earth includes everything that you can see, feel, and touch. So, gemstones, crystals, plants, herbs, lotions, potions, creams, and salves are all part of the earth element. When the Sun is in an earth sign, it’s time to get out our physical tools and use them. It’s also an excellent time to do grounding work and connect with nature.

  2. Protection Magic: The sign of Taurus has a natural affinity with money, resources, and possessions. One of the most popular magic spells involves bringing finances or money into our lives. But how many people perform magic to protect the resources they already have? Well, Taurus season is the perfect time to do it. Whether it is your finances, property, or possessions, working protection magic will help keep negative influences away and allow you to continue to thrive.

  3. Money Magic: In addition to resources, possessions, and property, Taurus is associated with money. If you need to attract prosperity into your life, use the energy this month has to offer to bring about ‘prosperity’ consciousness, and then you can enjoy the benefits. Think big, but be realistic!

  4. Healing Magic: Since the biggest possession we own is our bodies, Taurus season is excellent for doing healing work, especially if you use the many tools that the earth has given us. You can do this type of work with crystals and gemstones, teas with healing properties, and salves that contain essential oils (make sure you are not allergic to them first, so do a skin test).

  5. Kitchen Magic: Food is something that we all need – every. single. day. It’s the gasoline our bodies need to continue to run properly. But did you know that food also has magical properties? Since I come from an Italian background, herbs and spices are a staple in our dishes. Bay leaves are used for protection, garlic is used for healing, and oregano is used for happiness and love. Other cultures, of course, use many varieties of herbs and spices to magically enhance their food. For example, turmeric is used in India to reduce inflammation and attract happiness and abundance. So, the next time you whip up that special dish, try to be cognizant of its other worldly benefits. Pro tip: Did you know that a spoon is a magic wand? Use wooden spoons frequently to inject your intentions into soups, stews, and sauces.

Cosmic Overview

There are many stories which you can associate with Taurus – King Midas, Ferdinand the Bull, and many fairytales, which all fit the bill. However, I feel that the myth of King Minos of Crete is perhaps one of the most important.

King Minos is the son of Zeus and Europa, who had to compete with his two siblings to ascend to the throne of one of the wealthiest islands of Greece. Minos claimed the throne by divine right, since his father, the king of the gods Zeus, pursued Europa and impregnated her in the form of a bull. Minos prayed to his uncle Poseidon to send a bull out of the sea to seal the deal, and agreed to sacrifice the bull in his honor. Poseidon granted Minos’ request and sent a beautiful bull, which Minos immediately desired. But, instead of sacrificing the bull in the god's honor, he added the bull to his herd. He then deceptively sacrificed another bull to the god of the seas. 

Poseidon was not amused and sent Aphrodite (the ruler of Taurus) to inflict Queen Pasiphae (Minos’s wife) with lust for the bull. Pasiphae instructs the craftsman Daedalus to create her a cow that she could climb into. Once completed, she entered the wooden cow, and then the bull entered her. Nine months later, she gave birth to a half man/half bull creature called the Minotaur. 

Minos felt deep shame for his sins and had Daedalus (this guy suffers his own breakdown later because of his participation, which could symbolize our need to stick to our personal values rather than the values of others) create a structure known as the Labyrinth to house the Minotaur, and each month a virgin boy and girl were sent into the Labyrinth to feed the beast.

Now, of course, this is a rather twisted story, but there is a core to the story that gives us a glimpse into Taurus. Crete is an exceptionally wealthy country, and in its vast abundance and potent fertile lands lies a beast that threatens to devour the landscape unless it is ‘contained’. Perhaps, the Minotaur lives within each of us, and during Taurus season, we need to sort through what we possess and our motivations for obtaining it. Furthermore, we may need to look at our stewardship over our money and resources, and whether are we maintaining it and using them appropriately, or are we wasting it by feeding an inner minotaur?

Lunar Magic

Solar Eclipse in Aries

The New Moon in Aries happens on April 8, 2024, and it’s a solar eclipse. Solar eclipses are potent New Moons that can be troublesome. All you have to do is watch the headlines.. Because eclipses are so potent and need a lot of finesse and experience to work with them magically, I do not recommend any aggressive magic. Instead, I recommend protection and cleansing-based magic.

Full Moon in Scorpio

The Full Moon occurs this month in the sign of Scorpio on April 23, 2024. The sign of Scorpio is connected to the darker parts of your personality, the sides of yourself that you prefer not to show in the light of day. It’s an excellent Full Moon to protect yourself from yourself and work through self-defeating behaviors or self-sabotage. Often the things that we do are not driven by conscious thought but are rooted in our childhood experiences for better or worse. However, this is your show – you get to cast your own characters, defeat your own monsters, marry your own prince (or princess), and yes, write off any characters that no longer serve your purposes. So, get to work on your new script!

Weekly Breakdown

April 1, 2024 – April 7, 2024

Although all eyes will be on Mercury as he turns retrograde on Monday, the main cosmic influencer this week is Venus. In astrology, Venus symbolizes love, beauty, harmony, and attraction. Governing our values and what we appreciate in life, Venus influences our social interactions and the pleasure we derive from our relationships. It also represents our sense of aesthetics, including our style and the arts we are drawn to. So, expect relationships and money to be major themes as we move through the week.

Monday, April 1, 2024

The cosmos has its own April Fools joke this year, as Mercury turns retrograde in Aries. During Mercury retrograde, it is important to prioritize self-care and set boundaries. Take things one step at a time, and be mindful of your words to avoid miscommunication. Give others space and use this period for introspection and building relationships. It is also a good time to finish pending tasks and declutter both physically and mentally. Renew commitments and reaffirm your values during this period. While Mercury retrograde may bring challenges, it also offers a chance for growth and reassessment. Embrace its energy and use it as a powerful ally in your personal and professional life. Remember, Mercury retrograde is not something to be feared, but rather an opportunity for reflection and renewal.

Tuesday, April 2, 2024

The Moon continues to move through Capricorn on Tuesday. While the Moon is in the sign of the sea-goat, use its disciplined, structured energy to set long-term goals and focus on career advancements. It is an opportune time for organizing life, practicing discipline, and embracing responsibilities. This period encourages patience and persistence towards achieving your goals and getting results. Reflect on your progress to stay motivated, and use this sensible energy to lay solid foundations for your future. Embrace this time to advance professionally and personally.

Venus conjunct Neptune blends the energies of love, beauty, and values with dreams, spirituality, and compassion, creating a profound influence on relationships, creativity, and intuition. This aspect fosters idealistic love, artistic expression, and deep empathy, but is also challenging in relationships due to a tendency toward idealization. So, allow your partner or love interests to be as human as possible during this period, or it could lead to disappointment.

Thursday, April 4, 2024 

On Thursday, embrace the fiery energy of Venus in Aries by championing your independence, and boldly pursuing love and creative ventures. Venus moving through Aries invites you to take the lead in romance, initiate new projects with passion, and express yourself honestly. While the impulsive drive of Aries encourages quick action, balance it with patience and mindfulness to avoid hasty decisions. Also, Venus in Aries loves competition, because it brings out not only your fighting spirit, but also gives you the boost of courage, tact, and diplomacy to win.

The Moon moves out of Aquarius and into Pisces shortly after dawn on Friday. While the Moon is in Pisces, we enter a period ripe for emotional healing, intuitive growth, and creative exploration. The Moon in Pisces invites us to dive deep into the unconscious, allowing dreams and intuition to guide our path. Engaging in artistic pursuits, meditation, and mindfulness practices can unlock profound spiritual insights and enhance our emotional well-being. It's a time to embrace compassion, practice forgiveness, and connect deeply with the water element for purification and renewal.

Saturday, April 6, 2024

On Saturday, Venus forms a harmonious sextile to Pluto in Aquarius. Venus sextile Pluto is a powerful time to look at how your emotions affect your relationships, and gives you the ability to make change and reach compromises when necessary. Venus sextile Pluto gives us the ability to peel back our emotional layers, revealing truths and strengthening bonds. It also encourages us to examine our values and urges us to pursue what matters to us the most. Financially speaking, opportunities for growth emerge, making this an ideal time to use our resources.

Use the power of your inner warrior to get what you want and achieve what you truly desire, despite the odds.

April 8, 2024 – April 14, 2024

All eyes this week will be on the solar eclipse. Although I do not discuss Chiron a lot in weekly forecasts, I feel it is important to understand the astrological maverick to use its energies. Chiron's transits are like a healing journey, highlighting our deepest wounds to help us heal. Think of it as a wise teacher, showing us where we hurt and guiding us towards healing those areas. It's a time for reflection, growth, and turning our pain into our greatest strength. 

Monday, April 8, 2024

On Monday, the biggest feature of the solar eclipse that occurs at 2:21 PM EST is that the eclipse will exactly conjoin Chiron. This solar eclipse, connected to Chiron, illuminates our deepest wounds, offering a unique opportunity for transformation. Embrace this time for self-reflection and creative expression to guide your healing journey. This is also a moment to share your wisdom, teaching others through your experiences. Cultivate compassion, for it's through understanding our own pain that we can empathize with others. Set boundaries, practice forgiveness, and engage in holistic well-being practices. Remember, your wounds carry the seeds of your greatest strength and wisdom.

Tuesday, April 9, 2024

As the Moon moves through Taurus, we are presented with fertile ground for cultivating stability, beauty, and material abundance. This period invites us to deeply invest in our pursuits, especially those that nourish our senses and secure our financial foundations. It's a prime time for budgeting, investing in long-term growth, and enhancing our living spaces with the comfort and luxury Taurus so loves. Let us also remember to pamper ourselves, embracing the Earth's grounding energy through self-care rituals that reconnect us to our physical form. Steady progress in our goals, patience, and persistence are our guides, while the Moon moves through Taurus, leading us to tangible achievements and deeper, more meaningful relationships. The sensual world is our oyster—let's enjoy its riches. Oh, and a decadent meal should be on the menu!

Wednesday, April 10, 2024

On Wednesday, the warrior god Mars conjoins Saturn in Pisces. This period requires setting solid, achievable goals and embracing a disciplined approach to reach them. It's time to be patient, recognizing that some delays are part of your journey to success. Embrace challenges with perseverance and take responsibility for your actions. Incorporate regular physical activity into your routine to manage any stress. Use this time to work on projects that require long-term commitment, and see any obstacles as chances to grow stronger. With focus and determination, you can turn this period into a foundation for lasting achievements.

Thursday, April 11, 2024

We reach the halfway point in the Mercury retrograde season, as Mercury conjoins the Sun in Aries. Ordinarily, the Sun conjunct Mercury is about communicating and sharing ideas with others. However, while Mercury is retrograded, it allows us to self-reflect and examine the choices and decisions we have made over the last few months. Considering this conjunction occurs 3-4 times a year, it must be pretty important. While the Sun conjoins Mercury Rx, it’s an excellent time to work through any communication snafus that has occurred since Mercury ‘retched’ out last week. It’s also great for analyzing your business relationships and creating greater bonds with those you want to pursue, and let go of those that no longer work. On the personal level, the Sun conjunct Mercury Rx is the perfect time for self-examination, because it allows you to see the flaws in your plans for the future, and provides an opportunity to course correct when Mercury turns direct on April 25th.

Friday, April 12, 2024

On Friday, the Moon continues to move through airy Gemini, and it's like the universe is sparking a conversation, inviting us to dance with ideas, words, and connections. This is a prime time to weave the web of your network wider, reach out, and engage in lively dialogues that could open new doors. Let your curiosity be your guide; there’s no better moment to dive into learning something that piques your interest. Embrace Gemini's love for variety—juggle tasks with a bit more ease, and don’t shy away from adapting on the fly. Short trips or simply changing your routine can offer refreshing insights, so why not explore a new corner of your world? And remember, in this period of fluid communication, your words have power—use them to create, inspire, and connect.

Saturday, April 13, 2024 – Sunday, April 14, 2024

On Saturday, the Moon glides into Cancer, it's like coming home to a warm, comforting embrace. This is a time to cherish what's closest to our hearts: family, close friends, and our own inner sanctuary. Imagine wrapping yourself in a cozy blanket of self-care, perhaps with a nourishing meal or a quiet moment to reflect by the water's edge. Let your intuition guide you, listening to the whispers of your heart with compassion. It's also a moment to nurture the bonds that ground us, to find stability in the love and care we give and receive. Dive deep into your emotions, for they hold wisdom. Allow yourself to be cradled by this tender lunar hug, finding strength in vulnerability and connection.
