April is going to be a big month. Change is in the air. Uranus is squared Pluto, which it has been doing on and off for the last few years, causing one thing to be certain: life is changing. This time around Jupiter is in the picture, making a T-square with Pluto/Uranus. So now change is going to be BIG in everyone’s lives.
Pluto likes to change things slowly and transform all the darkness into light rising from the ashes, while Uranus likes to change things very quickly leaping without thinking of the consequences. On one side Pluto is digging its heals in, on the other side Uranus is pulling us out by our roots abruptly. To make things more complicated Jupiter, the planet of luck, expansion, and making things grand and divine in life, is in the mix. Does this sound fun yet? Well, hopefully for those willing to change it will be.
Mars is is going to oppose this T- square in April but it’s still retrograde in Libra making everyone have to find their balance; and Saturn is retrograde in Scorpio making everyone have to find their truth. A lot of people don’t like to live in their truth. They live in some world where lies are easier to live with and they are quite comfortable there. Some people don’t know how to live in balance and they are constantly in some sort of drama. These people, who live with their heads in the sand, are not going to make it smoothly through April or May. To really step up and change we have to live in our truth, and be true to ourselves. Otherwise change is going to be difficult and possibly throw some against the rocks.
Pluto, the ruler of the underworld, is very powerful and loves to control everything and everyone around it. While Uranus has no time for control, it wants to rush in, whisk us up into the air and get us from here to there in no time at all. It wants to “beam us up Scotty.” Pluto wants to transform and change us but not at the rate and speed Uranus does. So now that these two planets are in conflict with each other they have to find a resolution. Jupiter is nothing like them. Jupiter has a lot faith that things will work for the best, and Uranus and Pluto are never so sure what the outcome will be. Mostly because these two planets create drastic change and nobody wants to be forced to change that furious and fast. However, that is what April and May are all about.
I have witnessed some strange events lately with my friends. People are making huge decisions about their lives. Some are filing divorce papers, or getting married to the person they have been with for 15 years, over the weekend. People are in or they are out. It’s black or white. I see this as a good thing because some are creating change and even though it may be disruptive, the people who are living in their truth are going to make it to June in one piece. Others are marrying the person they love—despite what their family or friends think or filing those divorce papers no matter what the Jones’say. Still others are quitting high-powered jobs in exchange for a better quality of life. If people stop caring so much about what others think and live in their truth, positive change will start to happen. It’s the people who resist change and live in a lie that might have a harder time now. Pluto is in Capricorn and wants us to let go of the old ways—throw out those old worn out slippers, no matter how much we love them, because they don’t keep us warm anymore. Uranus is in Aries and wants us to bring in the new as quickly as we can and be brave in doing so.
These two planets are both the planets that want to change our lives and make us better people, but in very different ways. So we may feel a little bit explosive the next few months with this energy. And indeed things could explode, shake, shatter and come crumbling to the ground. It is not unlikely. Sometimes in order to really change that needs to happen.
“…This whole damn world can fall apart. You’ll be ok, follow your heart….” New Radicals
This is not a time for Pluto to be drawing lines in the sand because with one fresh breath of air, Uranus will blow it away. It’s a time to put both feet down and make a stand for what we want in life. The universe wants people to find their true calling and to live by it.
These are power planets and it is time to be a powerful. It is a time to take that spider bite and let it turn you into a superhero. Put on your cape and fly away with your dreams. Whether it is a person, place or thing you want, it is time to go get it because right now you have more power then you know what to do with.
“…You better lose yourself in the music, the moment, you own it, you better never let it go. You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow. This opportunity comes once in a lifetime…” Eminem
This is the best way to describe it: we get one shot now to change and grab our dreams and we don’t want to miss our chance and blow this opportunity of a lifetime.
There is no doubt change is hard and these two months could bring some surprises that are not wrapped up in a pretty, blue, Tiffany’s box. However if we are willing to let go of the old and embrace the new this could be the chance of a lifetime to live the life we are destined to live. These months may not be the most comfortable but they could turn out to be the most rewarding for those ready to let go of their old lives and step into their new ones, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.
Pluto is saying hold on tight. Uranus is saying let go. It’s a toss up and it’s your choice. Jupiter is making things divine. These three will try to transform you—and at a quick rate. But change can sometimes be grand!
