Welcome to the Month of April
Astrology Information to Get You Through the Week – April 1-7
Here we are in the first week of April – Already!! Wow- where does the time go? We begin the week with April Fool’s Day. What tricks or pranks will you fall for this week – all in the name of fun 🙂
The energy of the week features Mercury conjunct Neptune again (remember last week they were also conjunct when Mercury was retrograde), and the New Moon, and that’s pretty much the story for the entire week. There isn’t the extremes of last week’s change energy, so all in all this is a week to go with the flow.
Let’s break it down by the days:
Monday, April 1, 2019
Happy April Fool’s Day. Do you know the origins of this day? April Fool’s is linked to the time when the Julian calendar gave way to the Gregorian calendar. People who forgot the change and celebrated New Year’s on April 1 (where it used to be celebrated in the Julian Calendar) were made fun of. This is only one story of the origins of the day. You can find out more information in this article – HERE
Today’s astrology is very mild. The Moon is in Aquarius early in the day and shifts this morning into Pisces. The next few days are filled with the shifting sands of emotions and the high side for us is that we are more compassionate, intuitive and forgiving. This doesn’t make for substantial decision-making prowess however, so be gentle when it comes to trying to make big decisions. You will need more time for clarity before you really know what to choose.
Human Design Notes for the day:
Venus, in Human Design Astrology, represents our relationships, and she moves into the Gate 37-Harmony today. Gate 37 is on the Emotional Solar Plexus center and for the next few days we are more inclined to equality, tenderness and creating harmony with one another. In the lower frequency of the the Gate 37, we find cruelty and using power against one another. Be kind, be generous, be compassionate, be loving.

Today the planet Mercury moves to conjunct Neptune in Pisces. Last week week we had the same transit when Mercury in retrograde was conjunct Neptune. Now Mercury is moving forward and has met up again with the planet of Spirituality, Mysticism and Intuition to deliver yet more messages from our higher selves. This is a great day for meditation, contemplation or engaging in your Spiritual practice. Choose to tap into the etheric realm for guidance and direction.
Human Design Notes for Today:
Mercury now moves into the Gate 22 – Grace today and sits with Neptune. Venus just recently left this gate so we are seeing quite a bit of focus on the information held in this gate. Last Friday in the MetaCafe, I spent a bit of time talking about the energy at this gate and what it is leading us to. Here’s a link to the video for that show:
The Gate 22 is important because it is holding the key to our involution. Think of involution as the inner changes we are making as we evolve as human beings. Involution is the process of our embodying more and more of our Divinity. It is ongoing, and as planets like Mercury (communication) and Neptune (Spiritual Nature) transit here, we are indeed changing from the inside out.

The Moon is in Pisces for most of the day today. Before it transitions into Aries later this evening, we experience positive energy with Pluto and Jupiter. For the most part the day is smooth.
Moon sextile Pluto – This transit arouses deep feelings and emotions within us. We are more interested in the depth of things rather than just the superficial. We are also more interested in the mysterious and mystical today. We may have waken from dreams in the night that have a profound effect on us, as if the subconscious was speaking to us directly.
Moon square Jupiter – We feel generous, benevolent and spiritually oriented when the Moon squares Jupiter. While you may feel very sure of your own beliefs, watch out for self-righteousness or smug arrogance in the face of other people’s beliefs. There is enough room in this world for a diversity!
Thursday, April 4, 2019
Last evening the Moon shifted from Pisces into Aries. Events pick up pace for the next couple of days. The challenge is to be quick, yet avoid being premature so you don’t have to do it all over again down the line. Nevertheless, it can be a fresh breeze all around, awake with energy.
Adding to that, the only aspect for the day is the Moon sextile Mars, and overall, this adds to the energy potential of the day. Today we have the capacity to work well with others or by ourselves. We may feel like taking the initiative and be more self-reliant. In communicating with other today, steer clear of attacking with your words, or stirring the pot unnecessarily. If you have something to say, say it responsibly and that means without blaming others or shaming anyone.

New Moon in Aries – While you slept the New Moon occurred at 15 Aries. The New Moon always offers up the new, whether it is a new journey, a new belief, a new pathway forward, or even a new relationship (and that can be with a person, a group, money, etc.) This New Moon opens up a portal to success, but it is not assured as much as it is worked for. Aries new moons open up all kinds of possibilities to be bold, courageous and take action where it was once stalled.
About the only downer to this New Moon is it is square to Saturn in Capricorn, which can make us feel a bit overwhelmed by the work ahead to get where we want to go. The best bet here is to make a plan and break up it up into bite-sized pieces. That way you feel encouraged each time you take a step. Saturn rewards those that are willing to do the work!
Human Design Notes for the New Moon
The Sun, Moon combination (ie the New Moon) are at the Gate 51-Initiation in your Human Design chart. The energy at this gate is one of awakening and/or agitating, depending upon how you personally view what is going on. The high frequency of this Gate shocks us, initiates us into higher knowledge/higher self and sets us up on a pathway to becoming more than we ever thought possible.
The lower frequency in the Gate 51 can cause us to feel defeated and fearful by the chaos or turmoil going on around us. Or we may become agitated and upset, leading us to feel victimized. It boils down to choice – how do you choose to see the challenges and opportunities around you?
The Moon is in Taurus for the entire weekend. The next couple of days can be solid launching ground for anything you choose to embark upon, especially if it’s down to earth to begin with. The atmosphere favors practical beauty and the grace of being in touch with nature itself. Enjoy the simple and the elegant, leaving behind complexity and complications.
However it isn’t all peaches and cream this weekend. There are a couple of things to watch out for.
Saturday, April 6, 2019 – Moon conjunct Uranus
Be careful of acting rashly or impulsively today. You may be feeling a bit moody, and there are repercussions if you act first, think later. You certainly do not want to get stuck with the results of reacting versus taking action. Instead, use the energy of the day to do something different – go someplace you’ve never been, visit with someone you haven’t seen in awhile or enjoy movie, museum or activity that you wouldn’t normally think you would like. You might be surprised today in good ways, when you step out of a rut.
Sunday, April 7, 2019 – Mercury sextile Saturn
Today you can work diligently and carefully on any number of projects. You have the mental acuity, focus and concentration to get things done. Don’t try to focus on the big picture today as much as on the details of something. This transit favors the minutia. Don’t get carried away today with being too serious either – get out and have some fun!
So, all in all, not too bad of a week. I’ll be leaving on Friday for a cruise in the Caribbean with psychic medium, John Holland and oracle card reader and designer, Colette Baron-Reid. I’m really excited. I’ll most likely be out of touch until April 14th when I get home.
Until then – have a Stellar week!
Blessings – Janet Hickox
