Pri­or­i­tize safety, au­then­tic­ity, and un­der­stand­ing this week, as our spring­time fires ig­nite just as com­mu­ni­ca­tion glitches oc­cur when will­ful Mars en­ters Aries and com­mu­nica­tive Mer­cury ret­ro­grades. Con­flict can get us go­ing, but it’s not a cre­ative place. Let’s move out of re­ac­tion and into cre­ation and look for ways that honor all paths. Our lives are shift­ing now. If some­thing is wrong, we won’t put up with it any­more. Soon we be­gin to see the direc­tion change is tak­ing us.

To­day let’s re­pair and fol­low through on the loose ends. Mer­cury has just ret­ro­graded and asks us to spend the next few weeks re­view­ing, heal­ing, and plan­ning the fu­ture. Dur­ing that time, ac­ci­dents in­crease and mis­un­der­stand­ings pro­lif­er­ate un­der pres­sure, so let’s pace our­selves and move with con­scious­ness.

The en­ergy is brash and rev­o­lu­tion­ary this week­end; do not tell peo­ple what to do. Sud­den events de­mand at­ten­tion as the moon and Mars join the sun, Mer­cury, Jupiter, and Uranus in Aries. We may need to take de­ci­sive ac­tion to re­pair the past.

Early next week, fol­low through on work in progress; do not drop the ball. Later on in the week, we have an op­por­tu­nity to talk about old prob­lems with a fresh per­spec­tive and break into new pat­terns.

Nep­tune en­ters Pisces this week — a sub­tle change that makes wa­ter qual­ity and avail­abil­ity a ma­jor eco­log­i­cal chal­lenge of the next decade, along with the new search for healthy power as Uranus squares Pluto through 2015. Nep­tune in Pisces soft­ens our aes­thet­ics and, over the decade, in­creases the hunger for mys­ti­cism and tran­scen­dence.

Fri­day, April 1: We all can feel like April fools bum­bling over snags or un­fin­ished busi­ness, be­ing vul­ner­a­ble and dis­or­ga­nized, but still sense big things about to hap­pen. It may be hard to stay on task, but some im­por­tant work needs punc­tu­a­tion now. Un­wind tonight.

Satur­day, April 2: Any­thing can hap­pen. We could make a break for free­dom, what­ever that means for us. Fuel abounds; fire catches quickly. Let’s check all in­for­ma­tion be­fore ex­plod­ing our en­ergy as Mars and the moon en­ter Aries. The mood is wild tonight.

Sun­day, April 3: This is a turn­ing point un­der an Aries new moon, though it may take a month to see the ef­fect. We get hints about what we truly do and do not want but must wise up to take ap­pro­pri­ate ac­tion. We need re­straint, not sup­pres­sion.

Mon­day, April 4: The mood is sparky if dis­or­ga­nized. If we take a step to­ward our goal, our soul’s rest­less­ness calms down. Evening grows de­ter­mined and con­nected as the moon en­ters Tau­rus. We want to be­lieve but have our doubts.

Tues­day, April 5: We need to deal with con­se­quences of re­cent ac­tions or in­ac­tion. The en­ergy is will­ful, de­ter­mined, fierce, and en­thu­si­as­tic if eas­ily frus­trated.

Wed­nes­day, April 6: Sharp edges and ac­ci­dents are likely early on; stay safe. Mid­day, the cork comes out of the bot­tle as the sun con­juncts Jupiter — ev­ery­thing takes on a larger-than-life qual­ity, even our lazi­ness. Talk up work; share ever-so boun­ti­ful opin­ions.

Thurs­day, April 7: The winds and moods change direc­tion ev­ery few min­utes. Con­firm all data as the Gemini moon squares Nep­tune. Don’t test one an­other this af­ter­noon. Keep talk­ing and heal the past.
