  • April Astrology Highlights

    “Dancing with the Stars”
    By Janis Page   c2011
    Happy spring!   How lovely to have the hours of light now outnumber the hours of darkness, and warmer temperatures to allow more time outside in nature.    It’s a good thing, and a good idea to do just that – take a break, go outside, to the mountains or at least a park, and spend some decompression time just breathing and taking in the nurturing energies of nature and the Sun.   A little rest and recharge will help, because April continues the amplification of the energies that have been increasing in intensity for a while now.   Big time.  
    March brought not only the spring equinox, but also the ingress, or entry of Uranus into Aries – on the day of the Japan earthquake, now upgraded to 9.1, the resultant tsunami, and the start of the continuing worsening disaster at the nuclear power plant in Japan.   Wow!   Aries is ‘ready, fire, aim!’   As I write, eleven days later, Japan continues to have earthquakes of at least 6.0 every day, and the supermoon full Moon on the 19th isn’t calming things down.  
    March ends with Mercury beginning its first retrograde cycle for the year, calling for time to reassess, redefine our focus, finish what has been started, along with the frequent communication and technology snafus that Mercury Rx usually also brings.    We’ve been in a time of major solar flares, which further activate and amplify all the stress and confusion and technology challenges.  
    April begins day 1 calling us all fools, as now Mars enters his own fiery sign of Aries to further heat things up, and to quickly conjunct Uranus two days later.   That’s a lot like throwing gasoline on a fire…  so now we have Mars, Jupiter and Uranus all in Aries – that only happens about every 500 years!   Jupiter and Uranus together can be quite innovative and expansive, and indicate significant events in foreign relations, but then adding Mars to the mix increases the likelihood of aggression and violence, and possibly more religious conflicts.   The last time these three planets were in Aries was 1595.   There was war, some treaties, and the first performance of Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo and Juliet.’  Hmm!
    The chart for the new Moon on April 3rd is astonishing.    The Sun, Moon, and Jupiter are conjunct in Aries, in tight opposition to Saturn Rx conjunct the uranian transneptunian Zeus, which relates to fire, explosions, the military, organizations, inflammation, and squaring  the asteroid Siwa, which relates to Asia.   There is Japan.   On this same axis, on the 90 degree dial we also find Neptune (water, illusion, compassion), Transpluto (usually mute, but nearly always active when major crises happen), Hygeia (issues around health), and the asteroids Odysseus (travel), Industria (hard work), the asteroid Zeus-a (same as the TNP already involved), and Klotho (new beginnings).   We also consider what midpoints are activated by an axis, and the list is longer than I want to type out.   I will say it includes Mars/Vulcanus, Uranus/Vulcanus, each adding more explosive volatility, and Hades/Apollon, suggesting multiple incidents of breakdown, but also healing possibilities.  
    There’s more.   This day of the new Moon is the day that Mars makes his exact conjunction to Uranus (that is 5, half the traditional planets in Aries, if you are counting) and also Black Moon Lilith, relating to shadow issues, all on the universal Aries/cardinal axis.   The events this brings about will have global, collective impact.   If this huge casserole of intense planetary beings isn’t mindboggling enough, transformative Pluto, the planet of power and the abuse of it, falls at the midpoint of the two Aries clusters.    To add even more of a kick, Pluto is further intensified as the little powerhouse now digs in stationary, preparing to turn Rx on the 9th, and will remain Rx till the middle of September.  
    We are already seeing the amplification of the striving for personal freedom (Mars, Jupiter and Uranus in Aries) crashing against the control of established political powers (Saturn in Libra in opposition and the square to Pluto).   On the personal level, we must release old patterns and belief systems that are limiting our greater spiritual vision.   You may remember reading that here before, and more than once…  I know, it isn’t easy.  But it’s easier than trying to resist, which is sort of like trying to beat back a tidal wave with a fly swatter.
    Then the next day, after Jupiter entered Aries in January and then Uranus entered Aries in March, now on April 4th, giant, watery Neptune enters its own sign of Pisces, to be there till January, 2026!    With an orbit of about 160 years, Neptune was last in Pisces 1847-1861, when there was a spiritualism movement in America, driven by a desire to explore the unseen and unknown.   Neptune relates to spirituality, religion, the astral realms, addictions, illusion, glamour (including of the Alice Bailey variety), oceans, oil.   At its highest level, Neptune relates to universal compassion.   While Neptune in technology-based Uranus brought the era of relationships over the internet and dating sites, well, I don’t know that that will stop, but it will change somehow.    Beyond that, we may expect breakthroughs in spiritual healing, including thru music and imagery, a greater sense of compassion and increasing awareness of unity consciousness, but also possibly further increase in religious conflicts and fundamentalism, and issues around oil, as well as concern for the oceans and of water as a resource.  
    We’ve only gotten as far as April 4th!   On the 6th, the Sun conjuncts Jupiter, bringing one of the more expansive and upbeat days we’ve had for a while.   April 9th, Pluto turns Rx, and while at a standstill Mars makes an exact square to it on the 11th.   This is a good day to be careful, as tempers and rage may possibly abound, and with Mercury also conjunct Jupiter that day, some will be quite positive and optimistic, but others may go way over the top, knowing no limits and respecting no boundaries.    
    The full Moon on April 17th has the uranian transneptunian Apollon (multiples, commerce) tightly conjunct the Moon in social and diplomatic Libra squaring intense and focused Vulcanus.   Across the dial is an interesting cluster of asteroids, including Sphinx (questions), Lilith (triangulations, rivalries, rejections), and Eros (sexual energy, hormones and cardio issues)    Expect relationship issues to be up, and those on the edge to come to a head at this time.    Another cluster on the dial has Aries Mars and Mercury opposing Saturn conjunct Zeus, which can be explosive as people want to blast beyond imposed constraints.    Jupiter is at the midpoint of these two clusters, emboldening and encouraging many to extremes, some of which are needed and warranted, and others to be just reckless.    Pluto continues to be a player, holding powerful midpoints to Saturn/Uranus (um, that’s a potential earthquake indicator, also revolution), Uranus/Zeus (explosive), Mars/Black Moon Lilith (taking things very personally, projecting, and not seeing or owning one’s own part in it).  The dial also brings in Astraea, vision, witnessing, and incomplete resolution, lingering situations, and Orpehus, which relates to sorrow, loss, death, and music, especially music with longing and pathos.   
    April is an extremely intense month, with much coming to light for purification and transformation.  There is ample opportunity for major spiritual growth and awareness.    The way is being cleared (while sometime kicking and screaming in resistance) for the new emergent spiritual consciousness.   Not all will choose to continue the journey.    Those whose soul agreements are complete may choose to move on, and that’s ok.   Zen Buddhist teacher Cheri Huber wisely advises to pay attention to everything; don’t believe anything; and don’t take anything personally.   Take heart, be mindful, consider and fine-tune your priorities and intent, stay in joy, gratitude, compassion, acceptance, and creativity.   There is much to celebrate!      
  • Beautification of Self~A Nick Message

    Beautification of Self begins with the "inner self." Bringing oneself into a place of recognizing that one is worthy of receiving the best that one has to bring into their experience; this is key to ones happiness and joy. What is created within the mind and energetically put out is vibrationally drawn to one. You are such powerful beings, able to manifest exactly what you have in your lives, be it in contrast (negative) or in expansion (positive). There are many  that are going through the tsunami of relationships. Emotions are running high, those that do not resonate within your vibration will choose to leave and those that vibrate within your level will be attracted, coming into the manifestation process within your experiences. The energy grid that is surrounding the earth is intensifying, glowing brighter and stronger, as those on the earth are coming into a place of change and love after the major earth changes and shifts. Know that this is a process of expansion and healing...the re-calibration of life and energy...lives as one see in the physical do not end in the energetic. Work is continued from the other side of the veil, on a more powerful level, assisting those that remain on the earth-plane, to continue the work that is part of their requested experience until they come into a place of transition. Calling all light workers into awareness is essential at this time. Answer the phone! With love and light, know that we love you very much.~Nick 4/13/11
  • Spring Equinox

    ‘Special edition’ –
    “Dancing with the Stars”
    By Janis Page   c2011
    These are extraordinary times, and call for extraordinary measures – including writing a spring equinox  ‘special edition’ update!    First, a reminder that the planet of chaos and disruption, but also cosmic consciousness, Uranus entered fiery Aries last week on Friday the 11th – the day of the Japan earthquake, one of the worst five earthquakes in history, now upgraded to 9.1, the resultant tsunami, and the start of the continuing worsening disaster at the nuclear power plant in Japan.   Wow!  There is nothing subtle about that.  
    I’ve been studying the charts for a while now, reading what some of my astrologer colleagues are writing, and sit here Friday night before the full Moon tomorrow morning, and this window of time is extraordinary.  
    We are currently in a powerful seismic window until at least March 26, though I’d give it at least through the new Moon on April 3rd, where there is the possibility of more radical Earth shifts and extreme weather patterns.    Consider the Pacific rim “ring of fire,” indeed!    There have been a series of destructive earthquakes progressing around this Pacific rim recently, starting with the 8.8 quake in Chile on Feb. 27, 2010, and in the more immediate past, the 6.3 quake in Christchurch, New Zealand on Feb. 22, 2011, and now the Japanese 9.1 quake on March 11, 2011.   I can’t help but notice those master numbers in those last two dates…  and while there has been tragedy, people are showing up in compassion and camaraderie to help each other.   If the circular progression continues, North America may be next for a bit of Earth dancing, as she clears, discharges and rebalances energy in her rebirthing process.    Many are working to ease the energies, we’re ok.  
    We may see some activity by the time you read this…  This full Moon in the morning is a “supermoon”  when the Moon is at her perigee, or closest distance from the Earth.   This is the strongest, closest supermoon that we’ve had in about 18-20 years, and the closest we will have until 2016.   What I wrote in part at the start of the month:
    The full Moon at just under 29 degrees of Virgo falls on Saturday, March 19, at 11:11 am.  (more master numbers!)  The full Moon is conjunct the asteroids Atlantis, bringing a potential sense of ‘impending doom,’ water disasters, and issues of confidentiality and ethics; Terpsichore, about dance, grace and flexibility, body language; and Nemesis, relating to scapegoating, Achilles heel, seeking to place blame.   This complex mix of energies opposes the Sun at the end of Pisces, conjunct Black Moon Lilith, calling for working with the shadow – what do you not see within yourself, that you may repress and then project?  The Sun and BML are also conjunct Uranus, so a lot is going to blow open.    But even this isn’t all… the opposition makes an exact square to the nodes of the Moon, bringing in emotion (as if the full Moon isn’t enough for that) and impact on the collective level.   The south node of the past and karma is conjunct the uranian transneptunian Hades, which squares the full Moon axis to the exact minute.  Whew!   We are called to break down old structures and belief systems that no longer serve us, and at times we may feel like the ground is eroding away right under our feet.   Out in space there are black holes, quasars, and other space phenomena, including several ‘blazers,’ which emit electromagnetic impulses.   There is one at 28 Gemini, where Hades is sitting, called the Blazer Machine (no, it isn’t a sewing device)   The Moon was at this same degree conjunct the Blazer Machine during 9/11, the Asian tsunami, and the eruption of Krakatoa – hopefully we will not see an event of this destructive magnitude, but do note how powerful this full Moon is… 
    Then the next day, Sunday, March 20 is the spring equinox, when the Sun enters Aries and conjuncts Uranus at zero degrees, exactly on the universal/Aries axis.    Clustered with them on the 90 degree dial are Black Moon Lilith (shadow), Hades (breakdown at the end of cycles, purification or putrification, essential authenticity) and at the square, the Moon’s nodes.    For Denver, the ascendant is also on the Aries axis – for Washington, DC, the descendent is 1 degree Aries and the midheaven 1 Cancer, so all the angles are part of this major activation.   There is another cardinal cluster here as well – the uranian transneptunian Zeus, Saturn, and the Moon running from 13 to 17 degrees of Libra opposing Jupiter at 12 Aries and Mercury at 18 Aries, opposing watery Neptune across the dial, to add the possibility of water crises, some confusion, but also compassion and awareness.    Add powerful Pluto at the midpoint of the two cardinal clusters on the dial, and we can see great transformation, more revolution, including revolution in consciousness.    These planetary pictures can manifest in many layers, on many levels.  Take the high road to a rocket-boost evolution in consciousness!    Though at best, it’s not likely to be very comfortable.  
    While many consider the winter solstice/Capricorn ingress chart the universal chart for the following year, some consider the spring equinox/Aries ingress to be the significator chart for the year.    At the least, it will define the three months until the summer solstice.    I would say that we could expect massive change in our country over the next three months, if not over this weekend!    Things have been so intense for so long, at least we’ve been in training and know how to roll with it, right?  
    We don’t get a break then, either… the upcoming new Moon chart for April 3rd promises to be every bit as intense, volatile, magical and powerful, with a cardinal cluster of the Sun, Moon, Jupiter, Zeus and Saturn, and another cardinal cluster of now Mars conjunct Uranus and Black Moon Lilith, still with Pluto at the midpoint.    Wow!    And as we had Uranus enter Aries early this month, the day after the April new Moon, giant watery Neptune will enter its own sign of Pisces.   It feels as if the island we’ve been standing on is awakening, and we’re finding ourselves on the back of a giant whale starting to move…  or somethin’ like that!    Check back at the start of April for more on the Big Events next month.
    In the meantime, be aware, take heart, consider and refine your priorities, stay in joy, gratitude, trust, acceptance, and creativity, and have a very blessed full Moon and spring equinox.    Now the balance shifts, and for those of us in the northern hemisphere, the light surpasses the dark.   That is happening on other important levels, as well…  There is much to celebrate!

  • Winds of Change~A Nick Message

    There have been many changes occurring that have been very evident these past few weeks. Drastic external changes and others internally. These are the winds of change. It is the process of moving from the old into the new. Many of you, as biological beings, have been asking for these changes, whether it be conscious or subconscious. That in which is given energy is that which is created. Many biological beings are choosing to make their transitions at the time, many are young. They are the catalyst for change for those biological beings remaining on this earth plane, helping to bring them into awareness...an awareness for/of change. The process of bringing about something that is "new" is in truth the bringing into ones experience that which has already been known but is being remembered. The earth, your blessed planet, is going into a change of rememberance, of when it was in its purity, without the pollution, without the wars, without the negativity of lower vibrations. This process of drastic change, is in effect, changing the lives of biological beings on this planet; which in turn changes the vibration. This vibration begins at one point, such as a pebble that is dropped into a pond. The waves of change flows outwardly, changing and moving the energy of that which it comes into contact. Some waves are more powerful that others, making larger and faster changes, such as your situation in Japan. A new way of living, of life, for these biological beings will now come into their experience. It is the process of change in the highest degree. This wave of change will flow into the cosmos and bring changes on other planets and galaxies. All is as one...Remembering that your experience on this plane is also an experience for others on another. Many blessings and love.~Nick~3/17/11
