walking toward sunrise
to have stumbled into the garden
where the stone was rolled from the tomb of longing.

After the New Moon in Aries two weeks ago on March 30th, the Sun connected with each corner of the grand cross. On April 1, Aries Sun squared Jupiter in Cancer. On April 2, Aries Sun conjunct Uranus in Aries. On April 3, Aries Sun squared Pluto in Capricorn. On April 8, Aries Sun opposed Mars retrograde in Libra.
April 14th: Pluto goes retrograde at 4:44pm PDT at 14* Capricorn: In a dense jungle, a perfectly preserved Mayan bas-relief. When we discover ancient civilizations, we take comfort in our human experience and even the continuity of life. People like us lived in earlier times. Pluto here wants us to know (1) our civilization won't last forever and (2) we will leave something of value behind. That's what evolution is all about--leaving behind what no longer serves life, and keeping those things that sustain all of life for the future.
April 14th: Mercury in Aries squares Jupiter in Cancer and Pluto in Capricorn while joining with Uranus in Aries, filling our Mind with new ideas and necessary plans.
April 15th: Libra Lunar Eclipse
April 16th: Mercury in Aries opposes Mars in Libra. With all the major players of the cosmic cross connecting with the planet of the Mind, stay centered in your thought, words and actions.
April 19th: Sun enters Taurus
April 20th: Easter Sunday. Jupiter squares Uranus and opposes Pluto. This can be a turbulent and intense day, but if we keep in mind the symbolic purpose of Easter--the belief in our spiritual resurrection--we can show the world and each other what awake and aware people can do.
April 21st: 5th Uranus in Aries/Pluto in Capricorn square. This is the quintessence, the 5th time--the time to begin the rest of our lives.
April 22nd: Earth Day. Mars in Libra square Jupiter in Cancer. It's a good day to dream big and get past limiting beliefs. We can save our Mother Earth and each other.
