4/14 Sun conjunct Uranus (in Aries)
4/15 Venus goes direct
4/16 Venus (in Pisces) sextile Mars (in Taurus)
TEN OF SWORDS, THE EMPEROR & NINE OF CUPS
THE EMPEROR draws our attention to what is currently going on in the sign of Aries, and that is the Sun Uranus conjunction heightening the potential for surprising events that seem to come out of nowhere. Stay safe out there! Aries is the sign of leadership, ego, and conflict. Uranus in Aries sets us up for unpredictable violence that effects large groups of people. I’ll just note the current state of global politics – in the past two weeks we have seen Syrians gassed to death, bombs dropped on Syria and Afghanistan, and warships sent to North Korea. These acts of military aggression could very well escalate global conflict.
As a card about rulership, THE EMPEROR draws attention to the actions of our government leaders. I don’t know what you’re up to this weekend, but I’ll be in downtown L.A. with a bunch of other people to protest 45’s failure to release his tax returns. There are so many opportunities to become active participants in government and politics. Remember that our leaders reflect who we are as a people. If you don’t like what’s happening in the world, the onus is on you to do something about it.
The TEN OF SWORDS signals a painful ending, but the NINE OF CUPS suggests that this ending will yield a positive change. Resistance to that which we do not like teaches us how to come into our individual power and be the change we want to see.
Lastly Venus goes direct on Saturday, and is sextile Mars on Sunday. This energy stirs the passions and makes us want to invest our energy in something that really gets us going. This is a good time to start a new relationship and enjoy the company of like-minded folks. Do what you love to do, and maybe you’ll meet someone special in the process.
