WEL­COME TO APRIL FOOLS’ DAY, a New Year’s Day for those of us fool­ish enough to fol­low an as­tro­log­i­cal calendar. April Fools’ pranks give us a rel­a­tively harm­less out­let for the brash en­ergy of the sun, Mer­cury, and Uranus, all now in feisty Aries. A light­hearted day can help us let off steam, de­creas­ing the pres­sure from the Aries plan­ets.

In­ter­na­tional and lo­cal pol­i­tics usu­ally wind up when the sun heads into Aries, and this year’s Aries rev­o­lu­tion be­gan with a bang as ex­plo­sions rocked Europe and heated rhetoric en­sued. The Aries spark de­mands we do some­thing, any­thing, and do it now. How­ever, we have to add com­pas­sion and wis­dom to do the right thing. So, with lov­ing kind­ness and a twin­kle in the eye, let’s get our sense of hu­mor back. It doesn’t make the big pic­ture any less scary, or the prob­lems our world is fac­ing any less dire, but it can help re­store re­silience so that we stay in­volved and do the work.

We may need that re­silience with a nervy Mer­cury/ Mars as­pect un­set­tling us as the week­end be­gins, ready to set off any wait­ing fuel, both prac­ti­cal and po­lit­i­cal. With so­cial jus­tice is­sues front and cen­ter, let’s see if we can smooth the wa­ters.

At the be­gin­ning of the week, we are un­usu­ally aware of our vul­ner­a­bil­i­ties un­der a sen­si­tive moon in Pisces. The Aries mo­men­tum runs into the Pis­cean nerves like a bull in a china shop. If we feel our sen­si­tiv­i­ties are not safe, things will get dif­fi­cult later in the week. We have a new Aries moon on Thurs­day, which can pro­pel any­thing our hearts de­sire if we main­tain im­pulse con­trol, keep­ing our wis­est selves and most com­pas­sion­ate hearts be­hind the wheel.

FRI­DAY, APRIL 1: Un­pre­dictable as­pects can leave us wary this morn­ing. We are a bit sen­si­tive but ready for ca­ma­raderie, though our at­ten­tion may wan­der mid­day. We grow stronger and more ex­tro­verted — but also po­ten­tially anx­ious or im­pul­sive — tonight.

SATUR­DAY, APRIL 2: We may be look­ing for trou­ble, or at least ad­ven­ture, this morn­ing. Keep an eye on me­chan­i­cal is­sues, and if the cof­fee spills, slow down. Af­ter­noon brings a col­lab­o­ra­tive, ec­cen­tric, and pos­i­tive but in­de­pen­dent vibe.

SUN­DAY, APRIL 3: Let’s catch up with our­selves, our com­mu­nity, and spring’s progress as the moon makes a few pleas­ant as­pects this morn­ing. Deal with fuzzy think­ing and po­ten­tially low en­ergy as the moon en­ters sen­si­tive Pisces later on.

MON­DAY, APRIL 4: Go gen­tly with one an­other; we feel both softer and more per­me­able, and more re­ac­tive if we’re un­com­fort­able. Share vi­sions for the fu­ture, dream about pos­si­bil­i­ties, and brain­storm to launch the com­ing new moon.

TUES­DAY, APRIL 5: We can feel old and thought­ful early on but move into a con­struc­tive and com­pe­tent, if touchy, day. We’re still sparky, but it will be an emo­tional re­ac­tion; thoughts and words be­come more con­sid­ered, but also more de­ter­mined.

WED­NES­DAY, APRIL 6: Flow­ers burst forth and en­ergy builds as the moon en­ters Aries this morn­ing. End­ings clear the way for fresh be­gin­nings. Avoid giv­ing di­rect or­ders. Use dis­con­tent to as­sess, clear the decks, and clar­ify goals; be ready for launch to­mor­row.

THURS­DAY, APRIL 7: Run with the green light as the ini­tia­tory new moon in Aries con­juncts elec­tri­cal Uranus and launches us out of the gate. This can also un­leash mon­sters, so keep watch. Stay in charge and fo­cus on the long haul, be­cause what we be­gin today will have legs.
