5 of EARTH – Taurus Decan i – Bison

5 of EARTH – Taurus Decan i – April 20 – 30, 2019  BISON GRAZING

THEME: Resiliency, Change of Resources, Profit/Loss, Forfiet, Spending, Building.

KEY WORDS: Growth after Loss, Rebuilding, Planting seeds for the Future, Green, Earth, New Deals, Consideration, Insurance, Civilizing principles, Agriculture, Science, Organic soil, Legacies, Environment, Concern vs Faith in Providence.

ASTROLOGICAL SYMBOLS:This Decan the Sun moves into the sign of Taurus and Easter is celebrated. Green new shoots are pushing up from the soil with the promise of renewed color, scent and sensual pleasures to come! Venus rules the sign of Taurus and with it, beauty, art and comfort but during this Decan she ingresses into the sign of Aries which is concerned with personal, individual needs rather than the collective.

We are invited to participate in our own evolution, as we work with the cycles of Mother Earth and plan the careful use of her abundant resources. The “American Dream” has long been to work hard and create a legacy for your offspring to enjoy. The reality is that many times gold seekers go bust and locusts eat the first planting of your crop, hailstorms damage the second and drought plagues the third. Mercury rules this Decan of Taurus inviting us to brainstorm ideas that will insure our safety and survival by careful use of natural resources. Building must be weighed against preserving wetlands and sanctuaries so that the balance of nature remains.

IMAGINE:a Bison standing in a locust-infested field, a gull on his hump. The plow lies rusting where once farmers busted the sod and tilled soil for crops. The wild reclaims the prairie and the bison remains grazing, unconcerned for the habits of humanity, with faith in providence that all will be well.

Monday, April 22, the Sun conjuncts Uranus as 2* of Taurus and we celebrate Earth Day. Great imagination must be put to work for sustainable agriculture, solar and renewable energy and collective action for the common good. It’s a great day for inspirations!

Wednesday, April 24 Pluto turns retrograde, unleashing sudden structural changes and turnabouts. Great changes are slated, but the process for change must be analyzed and prepared for. Be prepared for some kind of grinding halt wherever Pluto is found in your natal chart until early October.

The 26thwe see a 4thquarter moon at 6* Aquarius allowing us to purge and release all that does not serve us, or the greater good. Spring-cleaning can get underway full tilt!

Saturday, April 27thMars squares Neptune bringing mutable energy of water and air to plans. Indecision may rule supreme while this mushy push-pull activates the weekend. Should it stay or go? Hold it to your heart and listen for the answer.

Monday, April 29thSaturn turns retrograde, so rules and regulations will be reconsidered through mid-September. #Namaste ~K

4 of Fire – Flaming Roses and Tortoise noses

4 of FIRE – Aries Decan iii – April 10 – 20, 2019

Cessation of Action: Patience. Consider an image of a desert tortoise picking its way through the burnt brush of the desolation. Where a fire passed over, determined seeds have popped out of their shells to re-fertilize the desert floor with beauty once the Spring rains fall. The tortoise is our image of a Stable Will that seeks Harmony. Even with the fires around him, he maintains a steady pace, sniffing at the wind for direction. He is a survivor!

KEY WORDS: Seek Harmony, Patience, and Stability. Learn to govern your Will, for once you govern yourself, you will know how to govern, motivate and attract others. Embody a benevolent spirit to wield passion wisely.

ASTROLOGICAL SYMBOLS: The period of early Spring yields to Taurus at the end of this decan. Now is the time to observe which tools you have at your side to help you plan for your seasonal harvest.

Venus is the ruler of this period so her use of glamour and enchantment prove to be even more magnetic than other times. Venus is meeting up with Neptune on Wednesday, April 10th, for a seductive and romantic rendezvous. Enjoy yourself but don’t buy into lovely promises that can’t be delivered.

Wednesday, April 10ththe Sun is square to the nodes of the Moon and that leads to a condition of being at the ‘crossroads’ about where to spend your time and energy. Take time to consider your options well, for in 10 days things will be ready to burst forth! The Sun squares Saturn, offering many paths from which to choose. Mercury in Pisces is in aspect to Pluto in Capricorn so it becomes easier for you to voice your desires to create beauty through service. Considering how you’d change the world, if you only could, may be a good mantra to use over the next few days. Because you just could do it!

Mercury squares Jupiter Friday, the 12thand just after that Venus is sextile to Saturn, which means that your message of Hope and Beauty can be published with good results!

Saturday, April 13 finds a definite resolution when the Sun squares Pluto. Pow! Eris is involved with the mix of the ‘bad boyz’ so there may be some TRUTH that is revealed, in a not too polite fashion.

Sunday, April 14 shows a more pleasant day with the Sun trine to Jupiter. Things will look brighter and hopeful this Palm Sunday.

And Tuesday, April 16th, Mercury moves out of his shadow, bringing more ease to conversations, sales, and marketing processes. If you have planned for a large project this will be the day to BEGIN IT!

Move forward to the Full Moon at 29* Libra on Friday, April 19thfor a lovely day of Venus amusing the Sun before it slips into Taurus the following day. Let’s hope the weather holds so we can make this ‘Good Friday’ into a Great one! Blessings~
