The Sun and Moon is best interpreted as the two primary energetic influences affecting all zodiac signs. You may experience a crossover of the Sun and Moon energies. The FIRST QUARTER MOON occurs on Thursday, April 30, 2020, at 1:38PM PST. Sun positioned in Taurus from April 19-May20.
On Thursday afternoon, the First Quarter Moon occurs, when the sun in Taurus forms a square with the Moon in Leo. As represented by the Natal Chart, whenever there is a First Quarter Moon, we can expect a theme revolving around crises. Many will feel compelled to take action, but we must be aware that our actions do not affect those around us. Any project or initiative we started around the New Moon is now off the ground and may be facing their first obstacles. Signs that are significantly affected by these energies are as follows: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius.
This week: The Sun is in Taurus; Mercury is in Aries until the 27th when it enters Taurus; Venus is in Gemini; Mars is in Aquarius.
The Sun is in Taurus from April 19-May 20
In this position, the sun is methodical, sensual, and receptive. When the Sun’s excitation levels are provoked, we can expect a reaction in defensiveness and resistance to change. While the sun travels across Taurus and our plans start to take root, our determination and security needs will be strong. Be sure to take long enjoyable breaks between ideas to reflect on things that make you feel good. Taurus is loyal to all that is familiar, and values longevity.
Mercury is in Taurus from April 27-May 11
When Mercury is in Taurus, our thinking is down to earth, solid and grounded. Common sense reigns over more lofty thinking. We communicate more deliberately under this influence, and our minds are oriented to the world of the five sense. We prefer the tried and true rather than new ways of thinking. Attention to one think at a time can simplify our lives, but we must also be cognizant of narrow, overly conservative, or rigid thinking.
Uranus is in Taurus. March 6th, 2019-June 2025
We approach money and personal possessions in new ways and learn how to free ourselves from certain material constraints. Innovative ways to make ourselves comfortable emerge. We’re less inhibited about expressing sensuality, self-love, body love, and pampering. We’re challenging what we previously valued during this cycle. There can be abrupt changes with money, valuables, possessions, and income that lead to a reshuffling of priorities or values. Income might come from non-traditional sources or ventures. We’re bringing progressive ideas to the world of business. New ways of doing business, as well as making, viewing, and handling money are likely. Income and the energy we put into making money can be variable.
Venus is in Gemini from April 3- August 7
In Gemini, we have invested in many things. Curiosity motivates us on romantic and social levels. “Diversity is the driving force behind oneness” is the attitude now. We are sociable, communicative, and interested. We can be animated and fun, but may also keep our distance on an emotional level. Attractions now may begin with words, as we tend to bond more readily on a mental level with Venus in Gemini.
Mercury is in Aries from April 11-27
When Mercury is in Aries, we are less concerned with objective viewpoints and explanations, and more concerned with reaching a decision…quickly! Our thoughts and ideas are pioneering, and we tend to speak more spontaneously and directly with the planet of communication in bold and assertive Aries.
Until November, you can be driven to improve your situation, whether this is about your reputation, leadership skills, or the need to follow some rules and structure or build self-discipline. You're determined to succeed and prosper in whichever ways you define success and prosperity at this stage in your life and development. You're embracing desires you never quite knew--or admitted to yourself--you had. While the Saturn-Pluto conjunction in January asked you to cut out inauthentic paths from your life, Jupiter-Pluto now helps you rebuild and reinvent yourself, particularly through your career or status, skills, education, resources, and responsibilities.
Mars is in Aquarius from March 30-May 13
Dynamic yet spontaneous energy levels, achieving our goals through trial and error tactics, and impersonal expression of anger are characteristics of Mars in Aquarius. We are teamplayers-cooperative and less concerned about personal power. We are attracted to unconventional methods, and tend to approach problems from an intellectual, neutral perspective.
Saturn is in Aquarius from March 21-July 1st 2020
Saturn transits and cycles can be considered cycles of achievement and maturity. When Saturn forms a hard aspect to a personal point in our chart, we might feel that everything is slowed down-we encounter delays, frustrations and pressures. But these times also challenge us to face reality, thereby opening ourselves up to increased wisdom and the freedom that comes with living in truth.
Jupiter entered Capricorn on December 2nd, 2019, and will transit until December 19th, 2020
Jupiter’s effects are to expand our experiences, our knowledge, and our understanding. Jupiter represents optimism, growth, generosity, and abundance. In Sagittarius, Jupiter urged us to increase our cultural and spiritual awareness, to expand our higher minds, to broaden our experiences, and to have faith in the universe. Now, with Jupiter in Capricorn, a new focus comes into play.
Saturn finishes its transits through Capricorn from July 1 to December 17, 2020
Saturn reminds us of reality and the need for greater self-discipline. Re-organizing the area of life represented by the house or personal point that Saturn is “hitting” can lead to great rewards. Remember that Saturn transits do not completely flatten us, by all means. Instead, they slow us down, force us to live in the here and now, keep us from taking unnecessary risks, and help us to build and structure our lives in ways that will benefit us later.
A headline of the month is a Jupiter-Pluto longer-term transit. It happens for the first time this month, and its range runs until November. During this cycle, you can be determined to improve your life and achieve something significant. You're ready to hotly pursue a personal interest, personal goal, line of study, or connection. You're feeling especially enthusiastic, ambitious, and motivated to improve your life through your studies and projects. It's a powerful time for personal appeal through your communications, persuasion, finding your voice, and feeling a sense of mission about what you're doing, learning, teaching, and sharing.
The Moon continues to transit your sign much of the day and you're in good shape for exploring your feelings. Mercury's minor challenging aspects can suggest some sensitivity to the finer points of communication, so you may want to tread with care. Details may not get attention today, but they can be sorted out at a later date. Consider that networks or friends can be giving you important feedback in the week ahead and that you'll also be gathering valuable information from or through them. Even so, there is some tendency to misunderstand one another today. Watch for blurred lines in the practical world. Do your best to avoid making unclear or vague statements. It makes sense to be a little more mindful with your communications. It's not the best time to stir the pot, open up sensitive conversations, or jump to conclusions. It's better to play a supportive role by listening, observing, and helping.
A Jupiter-Pluto alignment occurs this month, and it will influence you until November, motivating you to make sweeping changes and improvements. During this powerful cycle, your focus can be on making long-lasting beneficial changes to your habits, work, and routines. This transit is powerful for ramping up your ambition and your sense of personal power regarding getting your life in order. You are super motivated to improve your situation, mainly through the pursuit of a healthier lifestyle and through your daily routines, habits, chores, tasks, services, and work.
This can also be a time for embracing desires you never quite knew--or admitted to yourself--you had. While the Saturn-Pluto conjunction in January asked you to cut out inauthentic paths from your life, Jupiter-Pluto now helps you rebuild and reinvent yourself. You're redoing things in big ways, and with a more definite knowledge of what drives you, you're doing things much better than you were before. It's a strong period for making significant, long-term, and impactful changes to your health and habits, as well as to your work and services, and it all starts this month!
One of the biggest headlines this month is a Jupiter-Pluto alignment.

You are also in an excellent position to make positive changes to the ways you "do" your leisure time--you are no longer satisfied with the same old-same old.
During this long-term cycle, you can feel entirely driven and determined to improve your circumstances. You're embracing desires you never quite knew--or admitted to yourself--you had. It's a time to look at all of your layers with courage!

The headliner of April is your ruler, Jupiter's, alignment with Pluto. This longer-term aspect sticks around until November, so it's only just beginning to rev up. Now and in the months ahead, you're striving toward more independence or a personal sense of accomplishment through improving your lot in life, money situation, business, and/or comfort levels. This aspect pumps everything up-- you're ambitious, confident, and ready to pour all of yourself into building your talents or resources.
Now until November is a power period for putting your skills and talents to good use, as well as for money matters. Security is a driver, and you'll go to great lengths for it. You're seeking prosperity with determination! You're embracing desires you never quite knew--or admitted to yourself--you had, and these mainly relate to money, personal possessions, and comfort or security. While the Saturn-Pluto conjunction in January asked you to cut out inauthentic paths and unsupportive structures from your life, Jupiter-Pluto now helps you rebuild and reinvent yourself in these areas. Your confidence and motivation levels increase many times over.
Your needs are primary today being that your ruling planet Neptune is in your sign. Neptune has big plans for you Pisces, but It can be difficult for an accommodating person like you to be self-disciplined, but this is a critical component to contentment. You are going to be experiencing many little “tests” so-to-speak, as Ceres loves to provoke, that will challenge you to revisit your habits. Now is a good time to partake in any ceremonies of self-empowerment as Neptune in Pisces sharpens intuition and focus.
Most of the month, you have Venus and Mars supporting you as they transit fellow Air signs. You're in great shape for learning new things and connecting with inspiring ideas and perspectives. While you don't always have the time to explore or expand your interests, the times you get are high-quality moments. Socially and creatively, you're in a good place, relatively speaking.
The star transit this month is a Jupiter-Pluto alignment that will stick around until November. This serves as an additional boost to better yourself and your situation. Overcoming obstacles can figure strongly during this transit, and you're striving toward an improved emotional foundation, home life, and domestic world. It's a time when beneficial, robust, and long-term renovations occur on either physical or emotional planes (often, both). You are determined to make improvements that go deep in your home, family, and personal life. It's an excellent period for purging, releasing, emotional renewal, and starting fresh. It's also a great time for pouring energy into the home or the beginning of a major long-term initiative or business--something that supports you for years to come. The focus is on security, and you will go to greater lengths to achieve it.
