We’re currently between the eclipses: the spectacular lunar eclipse last week will be followed by a solar eclipse next week. This phase offers us the opportunity for personal growth and transformation. What's more, we are additionally under the influence of major transition (be this globally or in our personal lives), largely due to planetary heavyweights Uranus and Pluto's tense aspect with fast-moving Mars and abundant Jupiter. This 'cardinal grand cross' is shaking up the way we do things: will we be happy to continue on the same path, or is it time for a fresh approach? The Mars-Uranus opposition midweek could bring unexpected events into the mix, so keep an eye out for inspiration and/or opportunities then to broaden your mind and scope.
This current phase is a turning point: a game-changing period, which means the stars will support your efforts to improve your life. However, negative attitudes and approaches could equally rapidly turn against you, so it's especially important right now to keep thoughts and goals positive and constructive.
Luckily, wonderful stellar influences which will help us to follow our instincts and values; to believe in our dreams, are also developing this week. This will help us to tune into our intuition and to seek peaceful solutions over the coming months, this being the case especially for water signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces; and anyone with water as a predominant element in your birth chart.
Astro influences: the cardinal grand cross is here: Uranus square Pluto; Mars square Jupiter; Mars opposition Uranus; Mars square Pluto. Sun in Taurus; grand trine in water developing.
The solar eclipse, 8°52' Taurus, will be on Tuesday, April 29.
