Summer is here, and the heat is on! And whilst the tropical Sun is living up to its reputation by delivering feverish temperatures, there is something in the air indeed that adds to the fieriness of this season. Elections are a month away, and campaign period is reaching its height. Mainit na ang panahon, mainit pa ulo ng mga tao sa pakikipag debate kung sino nga ba ang talagang mga dapat mamuno.
April’s Cosmic Weather expectedly mirrors the unrest. We enter eclipse season next month, and momentum that leads to the eclipse starts building up resonance for now. This month is also filled with profound conjunctions that trigger important experiences in the spectrum of emotion. First of which is Mars catching up with Saturn early April, marking a conjunction that happens only once in 2 years. Known as the malefics, 2 of the most difficult planets in astrology, this transit is known to bring frustrating slowdowns, where we feel impatient and highly motivated, but limited by situations beyond our control. Imagine a really fast sports car being stuck in Edsa traffic, or perhaps having a long, wide, clear road, but the handbrake is stuck. Frustrating, indeed!
A counter-balance happens in the middle of the month, when a rare conjunction happens between Jupiter and Neptune, an alignment that only happens once every 12 years. These two planets are similar in a way, as they both embody spirituality, dreams and expansion. Jupiter is expansive and lucky, but only within the possibilities of reality (Saturn in the next planet in orbit). Neptune, however, is boundless. It does not bow down to what can be realistic or not. It is limited only by the depth and heights of your ability to dream. This can be a magical time, but only if you let it!
Other notable conjunctions include the SUN and PLUTO meeting in their annual dance, causing a couple of days where we may feel exposed and vulnerable. Towards the end of the month, VENUS corrects this by passing by the JUPITER and NEPTUNE conjunction, allowing us to see with rose-colored glasses, situations that may have seemed hopeless, a week before.
This month is going to feel like a see-saw, for most of us. In this month of heated weather and even hotter arguments, it is very important to remember that we are all human, no matter the differences in ideology. And oftentimes, it is understanding, learning and growing not in spite of, but because of the differences, that we get to experience how marvelously expansive and beautiful this miracle of life truly is. ❤ ]
For really specific details on how this month’s Cosmic Weather may affect you, you will need your exact birth time, birth place, and a competent astrologer who can compute and interpret your charts. However, even without these, knowing the general energies at play can greatly assist in planning ahead. You know the drill!
