Astrology Forecast — April 2023
As we step into the vibrant energies of April 2023, the cosmic dance off the planets invites us to embark on a journey of growth, healing and transformation, especially after Pluto enters the sign of Aquarius in late-March 2023. This month, we will witness the significant planetary placements and aspects involving the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Pluto and Chiron especially.
On 3 April 2023 at 12:22am (+8 GMT), Mercury enters the sign of Taurus and forms a square with Pluto at 0° Aquarius, which is where Pluto will remain until mid-June 2023.
In astrology, Mercury represents thought processes and communication. Therefore, when Mercury enters the sign of Taurus, there is a deliberate slow-down in the way information is processed and how solutions are generated. There may be a general inclination to think things through and decisions will take a slightly longer time to be made. Much of it is centred around financial issues and budgeting. This is likely due to the fact that Taurus, being a sign that’s ruled by Venus, which is the planet of affection, beauty and income, places a primary mental focus on how material possessions, budgeting, investments and financial matters are managed. Upheavals in commerce and finance as well as the current banking crisis will likely escalate to another level, which calls for newer rules to be in place, as forecasted in my Astrology Forecast 2023 Live video, which I did on the last day of 2022.
As Mercury forms a square with Pluto, communication become more intense and probing, not only in the area of finances but in other general aspects. There could be anxiety in the air revolving around the current dynamics of situations as well as the inclination to uncover truths and other topics related to power struggles and control. Despite this, this planetary placement also encourages mental resilience and so some people might experience sudden clarity of thought or the ability to navigate a problematic situation more effectively.
Every ingress into a fixed sign such as Taurus will be in tension with Pluto in Aquarius and this signals a reminder for us to be alert to the changes that is taking place and be more flexible to adapt to these changes, which can be unpredictable. Concurrently, put on your critical thinking cap and remain discerning.
There will be a Full Moon in Libra on 6 April 2023 at 12:34pm (+8 GMT), while the Sun will be in tight conjunction to Chiron, and both of them are near Jupiter, approximately 5° apart. At the same time, Mercury closes up to the North Node (Rahu) in Taurus forming a sextile to Mars in Cancer and Saturn in Pisces.
Chiron is known as the “wounded healer” in astrology, which represents the areas in life where we have experienced pain and other challenges, as a result, provides us the ability to offer empathy and understanding to other going through similar fate. With Chiron having a tight conjunction to the Sun, potential themes and manifestations include personal growth and healing, heightened sense of empathy and understanding, awareness of vulnerabilities leading to self-empowerment and mental resilience, mentorship and coaching on self-discovery leading to a greater sense of self and self-awareness. This way, when Mercury’s conjunction to the North Node and their easy aspects to both Mars and Saturn enables individuals to show care and some forms of compromise in their daily interactions in order to effectively deal with certain problems that might arise along the way.
On 12 April 2023 at 5:37am (+8 GMT), the Sun conjuncts Jupiter, and Venus would have already entered the sign of Gemini at 0° forming a tight trine to Pluto in Aquarius. Generally, there is an atmosphere of confidence during this period, adding to the mood of optimism, enthusiasm and generosity. People generally feel generous in helping others or contribute to the greater good. This period is rather auspicious and may bring about good fortune and opportunities for success. Venus’ easy aspect with Pluto will bring about deeper emotional connection and intimacy in romantic relationships. Generally, couples or dating individuals might feel a strong desire to bond with their significant other on a profound level. This aspect between Venus and Pluto intensify attractions and passions, making people more drawn to intense, transformative experiences in their love lives, and this includes expressing oneself creatively.
Three days later, on the 15 April 2023 at 12:21am (+8 GMT), Venus forms a square or a hard aspect to Saturn. This could lead to some disagreements or tensions in your relationships such as feelings of insecurity, emotional restraint, inability to express affection openly, and all these could lead to feelings of isolation or detachment. This placement could generate concerns revolving around money, personal resources or material possessions. Generally, there is a need to reassess your priorities in terms of finances or face the consequence of previous financial decisions. History will repeat itself if you don’t learn from your lessons.
And then on 20 April 2023 at 12:12pm (+8 GMT), there will be a simultaneous occurrence of the New Moon in Aries and the Solar Eclipse (which will be visible in Southeast Asia and Australia). On the same day at 4:13pm (+8 GMT), the Sun enters Taurus, followed by Mercury turning retrograde the following day, on 21 April 2023 at 4:35pm (+8 GMT).
The solar eclipse is often considered to be a day that heralds in a significant start of a new beginning or certain turning points in a people’s lives. There is also some display of heightened emotions or sensitivity in the atmosphere or mood of this period. Thus, this day can be a signal of certain beginnings or endings of a cycle. As the Sun moves it way into the sign of Taurus, there is an increased focus on stability and security, with a blend of practical indulgence and down-to-earth solutions to issues surrounding daily living. The primary focus of many will centre around the notion of comfort and pleasure as well as the need to engage in various forms of artistic expressions or appreciation, environmentally and in personal appearance.
When Mercury retrograde occurs in the sign of Taurus from 21 April 2023 until 16 May 2023, there will be a deliberate slow-down in the way decisions are made and people will be re-evaluating their financial matters. It could be possible that more people will be tightening their belts around this period when it comes to making purchases or investments into certain assets. The unpredictability and constant upheavals of the stock market will be heightened around this time and thus, it would be advisable to refrain from impulsive investments during this time, especially through electronic means. Communications and Internet disruptions during Mercury retrograde may jeopardise your plans. Do be extra cautious during this three-week period.
Finally, on 27 April 2023 at 8:46pm (+8 GMT), Mars will form a tight square with Chiron. This sets off a potential theme on confronting your emotional wounds or past traumas which might bound to surface during this period of time. Confronting your fears and anger on what has happened could help you mitigate your issues in order to heal and grow. You might also find yourself struggling with asserting yourself in an effective way, and this can feel rather frustrating because you will feel as though you are powerless or helpless in certain situations. Nonetheless, remain poised and collected because you cannot afford to make any impulsive decisions at this time. Learn from your past mistakes and move on with a healed and sound mind, allowing yourself the space for personal growth.
