Weekly General Astrology Forecast April 25th 2022
Embrace a universal value system
Rewards come in the form of more than money can buy
Stick to the retrograde rules
We’ve experienced a rare and long retro-free period. Where all the planets have been direct in the sky. Handing us the impetus to progress across all given areas. This week sees the retro-weather begin to build as Mercury enters its retro-shadow phase on the 26th in Taurus. It is now slowing down even as it heads into its ruling sign of Gemini later in the week. There it will turn backward and re-enter Taurus next month. The retro rules need to be applied from this moment onwards. Especially when it comes to money and what you value.
OK, Mercury retro brings potential mayhem but also allows us to heal the past and reconnect to experiences that passed us by.. Pluto retro simply gets more powerful. In Capricorn from the 29th this may shake the towers of power, those at the top breaking rules or being sneaky and underhand. Abuses of power will not be tolerated. Do we need to heal any issues connected to power in the past? Is it time to reclaim our power? What does power mean to us and how do we experience it? Pluto retro leads the way.
I’m seriously excited about this! A stunning cosmic happening lights up our hearts this week. The music of the spheres weaves a beautiful melody of higher octave love as Venus meets Neptune (27th) and Jupiter (30th). Creativity, compassion, inspiration, and ascension see those of us attuned to a higher frequency and desire to learn, stepping into something more freeing and heart-starting. Venus and Jupiter want us to gallop to extraordinary new love horizons. We move into deeper self-love, and open our arms to empathy and soul connections. Hopefully, we will see huge acts of kindness in the world, which will feed our spirit to keep going.
What are you being invited to explore now? These conjunctions show us there is more to life than what is on offer in the material world. But also that we need to put more emphasis on what is beyond the price and can’t be bought. Just what that is will be tied to our individual and collective value systems. What you will and won’t sell out or sell your soul over.
This week brings a rare new ‘Black’ moon in Taurus – sign of money, sensuality, boom and bust cycles and the golden, earthly abundant world we inhabit. Obviously, the planet should be the thing we value the most. But funny this doesn’t happen. The term ‘Black’ moon has nothing to do with the fact this new Moon is eclipsed – which it is. But is applied to the second new Moon in a calendar month.
Like retrogrades, eclipses have their rules. They are neither good nor bad. But they hide something. This is a partial eclipse, so a piece of the picture is missing. It also falls conjunct the asteroid Eros. Eros is passion and also taking aim. Perhaps at the right thing but sometimes at the wrong target. We think we want something only to get it and find its not what we wanted after all. This may mean a shake-up of our values as we replace old ones with something more viable, sustainable, and lasting. No more quick fixes. We may opt for quality over quantity for instance.
Those who still cling to the old ‘What’s mine is mine and what’s yours is also mine’ dynamic may find themselves in freefall. Success at all costs is now so last century especially if it ends up costing us all the earth. This week rewards for standing by those higher values and could just hand us more than money can buy.
In a nutshell: Higher octave love vibrates in the cosmos as Venus meets Neptune and Jupiter in Pisces. Enter a new dimension where compassion and creativity are the currency. Time to focus on the power of love.
