As we mentioned in our Planet Watch for this week on Facebook, the Sun will leave Aries for Taurus today, April 19—specifically at 6:08 p.m. Mars will be quickly following on the Sun’s heels April 20. The significance here is that the Sun and Mars have been traveling in conjunction, which means Mars’ Aries energy will stick around in Taurus: Folks, the relaxing ride in the lovely Venusian world of Taurus might be a tad more lively with the Sun/Mars conjunction. You might feel this especially in the House the pair are visiting in your natal chart. Plus, Saturn forms an opposition to the Dynamic Duo, adding restriction to the Martian energy, giving it a “pent up” feeling, with no relief until the end of April. Hint: If you find you’re frustrated in an area of your life during the next few weeks, try to consciously focus that vital (Sun) energy (Mars) into getting something done in that House…Whether it’s spring cleaning (4th), looking for that new job (6th or 10th), adding excitement to that committed relationship (7th), paying more attention to your appearance (1st) or whatever, take action!

Note: It is clear that this conjunction is having an obvious impact on the larger picture, especially as it pertains to the United States’ Birth Chart. We cannot begin to express our sorrow for the loss of life and our condolences for those who have been injured or have lost their loved ones as a result of the recent events in Boston, Mass., and West, Texas. Know that we are not ignoring the issue…we think about it daily. We are not yet versed well enough in the U.S. birth chart to address this. However, we believe the astrology community is giving it due attention. As a result, myastrologylife.com will focus on the lighter side of this aspect and how those of us not directly impacted by the injury or loss of loved ones might use it in a useful, positive way. God Bless to all.
