From Sunday April 19th, we are over lit by the high Taurean frequency. Taurus is literally plugged in to the enormous light of the seven hotly burning blue-white stars of the Pleiades – the Great Central Sun – acting as a channel or gateway to the source of this tremendous spiritual Centre. It illuminates by showing you the nature of Light.
The Buddha’s sign of earthy Taurus symbolises the World 3rd Eye and the pineal gland, the ancestral master cell of untapped DNA. Under the Creative Plan, Aries, Taurus, and Capricorn – now all being activated by Chiron, Uranus and Jupiter/Pluto – are the great transformers and act as catalysts. Taurus, representing the Soul, opens the door into the transpersonal -the world behind the world.
New Moon April 23 at 3 Taurus
This New Moon is a tremendous conduit for bringing down and through into practical manifestation the enormous power for personal evolution of Jupiter/ Pluto/South Node of Fate in earth sign Capricorn. The Sun/Moon are conjunct Uranus at 3 degrees Taurus and square Lord of Time and Karma Saturn in Aquarius, delivering sudden insights and a view of the big picture along with a dawning realisation that you have the agency to leverage this power, instead of being swept along by it.
This week, yet more hidden information will be revealed as Mercury conjuncts Disruptor Eris, and squares Pluto and Jupiter. There is the potential for progressive medical, scientific breakthroughs.
Amplify the Venusian Earth energy by grounding yourself, meditating, cleaning and activating crystals, cultivating your plants /garden. Know that everything is unfolding in its own time…..
The Chandra Symbol for New Moon TAURUS 4:
A Person talking in their sleep.
“A psychic faculty is dreamt into and sustained, leaving everything wide open .Going so deep in there, an altered state, that you become karmically thrown into the dilemma of translation between the worlds. Being used by astral forces, and learning to adapt. Indwelling a place reserved for those who are not ready to activate. Remembrance. Recapitulation. Return. Longing for connection between the worlds, you may be able to take the underworld route through. You wait, hope and are drawn back and back until the inner worlds have been heard and respected and the balance can be restored.”
Aries Weekly Forecast: April 19-26, 2020
It’s another big week, as the Sun exits your sign for yet another year and enters earthy Taurus. You’ve probably been more involved in community affairs of one sort or another recently and this is a trend set to develop until early 2022.You’re discovering that playing the pioneering ,self-reliant lone ranger isn’t the only way to live and that you have much more to offer than you realised. There’s another unfolding trend-Pluto and Jupiter together at the top of your chart-both soon to travel back over old ground-are bringing changes at work and in your career. Knowing this, weigh up your prefered options in advance so you’re ready to respond. It may be that having experienced freedom from commuting, you start to consider working for yourself. At Wednesday’s bright New Moon, think up some creative way to boost your income stream.
Being responsive, not reactive.

A personal re-set.
Gemini Weekly Forecast: April 19-26, 2020
Lucky you! Beautiful Venus will be in Gemini until August 7th-making a once every 8 year retrograde back and forth across your sign. Think back to 2012-what was happening then? Not only that but Venus is being accompanied by Vesta, Goddess of the hearth. Syncing as it does with this unexpected lock down, you have the opportunity of a lifetime to strengthen those ties that bind, even if you do have to do it virtually. Let those close to you as well as friends from far away know how much they matter to you. On Wednesday 23rd, the Taurus New Moon lights up the most hidden part of your chart, tuning you in more deeply than usual to your dreams and intuitions. In these strange times when we’re all struggling to make meaning out of the crisis, make sure you record them to decipher later for the benefit of all of us.
Cancer Weekly Forecast: April 19-26, 2020
If you’re feeling as if it’s the end of an era, that’s because you are nearing the end of an18 year mission! The karmic Node of Fate is about to leave your sign on May 6th and head into Gemini, meaning that since 2002, it’s travelled right round your birth chart and your life, bringing wild card eclipses along with it. In the last 18 months, with the Node crossing your sign opposite Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter, life has both challenged you and changed you from the inside out. Expect a major shift for the better in the next few weeks. Wednesday’s bright New Moon in earthy Taurus may bring some intriguing news from one of your far flung tribe which nudges you to experiment with different ways of networking and widening your influence.
Leo Weekly Forecast: April 19-26, 2020
As a resilient sign, you’re probably dealing better than most at being quarantined and restricted, seeing it as a chance to look at life from a different angle. If so, the planets are supporting you. The lovely New Moon on Wednesday 23rd is in practical Taurus and right at the pinnacle of your chart, potentially giving your career or status something of a reboot. Aligning with awakener Uranus along with Saturn/ Jupiter/Pluto, you are thinking out of the box about what you do to make a living, not to mention, how and where you do it. You may suddenly decide that you’re never going back to an office again and start planning to work for yourself. There’s no rush, take as much time as you need and be careful to invite family members along with you as you develop your ideas.
Is your ladder up against the wrong wall?
Virgo Weekly Forecast: April 19-26, 2020
Despite the chaotic outer situation, you are as resilient as ever and an absolute adept at making the best of a difficult situation. Your path is being smoothed by Venus right at the top of your chart, lighting up your career zone and about to retrograde back and forth for an exceptionally long period until early August. This hasn’t happened since 2002, so think back to what changed at that time in your life for clues and insights. Use this energy to come up with new ideas to deliver your services and add value through virtual communication. With Saturn- the systems master-now in Aquarius in your 6th House of work, anything connected to working remotely is well starred. Just make sure you keep the personal touch. Wednesday’s New Moon in compatible earth sign Taurus is a good day to launch a new initiative but make sure you start small and beta test.
Allowing your talents to flower.
Libra Weekly Forecast: April 19-26, 2020
Wednesday’s New Moon in Taurus activates your deep 8th House of shared finances and life’s big issues which suggests it would be a good idea to stop and take care of the basics. Look at the bottom line and tackle any money or property issues head on – burying your head in the sand won’t solve anything. It’s a challenging time for everyone at the moment so if you have to opt out of a contract or backtrack on an agreement, so be it. Your personal security has to take priority. Relationships of all kinds-but especially those at home – need tending carefully to avoid blow ups out of all proportion to the original issue. Anything that has been an elephant under the carpet needs facing and resolving.
Repairing the foundations.
Scorpio Weekly Forecast: April 19-26, 2020
Two of the angles of your chart-the underpinnings of your life-are in the frame this week and for some time to come. Master teacher Saturn is now in your 4th House of home, family and ancestry. This may start to bring some longstanding issues to do with acceptance or separation into the light of day. It seems as if you’re seeking much more freedom to negotiate your contracts with members of your tribe simply because their expectations of family dynamics are so different from yours. Wait until Wednesday’s New Moon in your relationship zone before you say or do anything dramatic. With unpredictable Uranus in the frame, what you see as liberating, they might see as a control trip. Cut yourself and everyone else some slack and listen rather than issue ultimatums.
Sagittarius Weekly Forecast: April 19-26, 2020
There seems to be quite a lot of soul searching going on, Sagittarius. It’s certainly a time for thinking more than usual about your work and your closest relationships, trying to put your finger on to a sense of stress or pressure. Obviously, the lock down doesn’t help as of all the signs you loathe feeling stuck or restricted.” Don’t fence me in” could be your theme tune. Venus is in your relationship zone, about to turn retrograde in early May and will cross back and forwards there until August. The last time this happened was in 2012, so think back to what was happening back then. Meanwhile, Wednesday’s New Moon in Taurus starts a new phase at work. Are you trying out new ways of working or thinking about how to set up an extra income stream? With Jupiter and Pluto in your financial zone, you should have plenty of brightideas.
Re-balancing your relationship dynamics.
Capricorn Weekly Forecast: April 19-26, 2020
Since Saturn left your sign for Aquarius, you’ve noticed an easing of the pressure you’ve been under since late 2017.Some of it was a result of changing circumstances but most of it self-created by your thoughts about what was happening. Now, with a little breathing space, you can start to see the big picture. Saturn was giving you a master class in self-agency and resilience, making you much stronger than you have ever been. That’s all to the good as two huge planets Jupiter and Pluto collide in your sign and you find yourself with more momentum than you know what to do with. So channel it towards lightening up a little, having fun without a to-do list and enjoying life with your family or your animal familiars. With the added bonus of both Venus and Goddess of the Hearth Vesta in your day to day life, perhaps you’re becoming a domestic Goddess or God!
Embracing life in all its forms.
Aquarius Weekly Forecast: April 19-26, 2020
You’re probably adapting better than most to the extended lockdown and manging to keep yourself and others busy and entertained. That difficult Jupiter/Pluto Covid conjunction is in the deepest part of your chart so hopefully, you’re keeping things in perspective. The trick is to focus on one day at a time and Wednesday’s New Moon in your angle of family and belonging is very supportive. With planet of fresh insights Uranus aligning with Saturn in Aquarius, you’ll be ringing the changes at home, de-cluttering, decorating, moving the furniture or even setting up a side business from your spare room. Venus in Gemini is nudging you to have fun, lighten up,despite everything ,and to live for the moment.
Be the free spirit you really are.
Pisces Weekly Forecast: April 19-26, 2020
For you as a solar Pisces, this astrology is all about people. With Jupiter/Pluto in your 11th House, Wednesday’s New Moon in your 4th and Venus in your 3rd, there’s no escape. Recent events have proved over and over that you can trust your own judgment and, more importantly, that you don’t need to tolerate anyone overstepping your boundaries. Take some time to sit back and scan your people landscape-your family, your friends, your personal relationship, your contracts and your alliances. Start with who you live with and work outwards. Just notice your emotional response when you think of each of them. Then ask yourself: who lifts me and who drains me? Your answer is the information you need to make some changes.
Re-balancing the emotional books.
