April 2019: Reality bites with the first hit of the Saturn/Pluto Conjunction in Capricorn – this will be a steep learning curve in edge walking between two great lines of force and moving way beyond your current comfort zone. During this April/May – as the Saturn/Pluto conjunction moves to only 2 degrees of separation – this powerful cycle of Contraction – with a capital C – starts to be felt and experienced at all levels – individually and collectively, emotionally, psychologically, materially and physically. This month Saturn is at 20 degrees Capricorn with Pluto conjunct the South Node of Fate at 23 degrees.
This is a time of pure karma and pure possibility as the old, the atrophied and the akashic dross is eliminated, when the Universal Law of Gravity makes itself felt. But first you need the Will and desire to make radical permanent changes instead of tinkering at the edges. An old life is going dark. These are new magnetics and new encodements. Before anything else, your physicality needs grounding as it the vector for your enlightenment – literally “taking in more light”.
Under such potent deep space frequencies, if you don’t make permanent changes, they will come from outside. Much more on this in my new April 5D Report:” White Hot Truth”- your print and keep guide to the intensifying Saturn/Pluto Conjunction – a once in 502 year event!

There is so much falling away and so much falling into place as we travel through this gateway of transition and new beginnings. Nothing is set in stone.
April is defined by the annual New Moon in Aries on April 5th and the 2nd Full Moon in Libra on the 19th -both trigger the Saturn/Pluto/South Node conjunction. This is going to be a noticeable shift to Cardinal energy which seeks expression, action, change. It is volatile and unpredictable and unrelenting.
This week’s turbulence is going to be like the confluence of two fast flowing rivers meeting, merging and swirling with undercurrents. Mercury conjuncts illusionist Neptune for the 3rd time still in his trickster retrograde shadow as Pluto squares disruptor Eris just before the New Moon at the 15 degree midpoint of Aries.
The Chandra Symbol for New Moon ARIES 16°:
Three sculptured birds: one black marble, one white marble, one solid gold.
“Genius. An extraordinary consciousness in a three-fold sweep of the phases of intelligence, coming into its fullest domain. At first a naive confidence in your mental powers and in your own ability to know what everyone needs to know and do what everyone needs to do. But later on, there creeps in the terrible knowledge that you know nothing, understand even less, and are operating in the dark. This can be terrifying, but is also redemptive in radical measure. Then there comes a synthesis, a cooking up of the raw intelligence into a vital grasp of the essentials in life and in particular of your own place in this world, with a brilliant awakening to the total design and how your own awareness is perfectly poised in the centre to reflect all that is.”
The New Moon, Pluto, the sabotaging South Node and Saturn are all triggered by the Node of Fate in Cancer – karmic times indeed!
What to expect?
- A sombre rite of passage
- Hard won lessons in Truth + Radical Honesty
- A psychological, physical and emotional power surge – nuclear fission – that will allow you to move mountains.
This means cleansing, purging, eliminating anything that is preventing you from becoming a clear channel for the new frequencies. It means consciously lightening – and enlightening – your physicality, perhaps by shedding weight, eating live or raw foods, permanently leaving toxic habits behind, getting out into the new photonic light and nature. It’s literally about re-charging your solar batteries.
Aries Weekly Forecast: Mar 31- Apr 7, 2019
On Friday the annual New Moon marks the start of your personal New Year- something to celebrate after recent events. As an Aries, your sign is in the thick of the planetary action with both the New and Full Moons falling across your angle of self/other, so all your relationships, whether personal or professional will be going through a changing of the guard. As your angle of career/home is also under deconstruction by reality planets Saturn and Pluto, frame it all as a blast of fresh air clearing away the outlived and outgrown ready to welcome new people, passions and projects in the year ahead.
Eliminate, clear and cleanse.
Taurus Weekly Forecast: Mar 31- Apr 7, 2019
When the Sun is deep in the most hidden part of your chart-as it is until April 20th– it’s a signal to work with-not against-the planetary weather by taking time out to reflect, dream and let events take their course. This week with Mercury merging with slippery Neptune affecting your communications with friends, groups and work contacts, don’t expect instant feedback and definitely don’t push for hard and fast decisions. The good news is, with power planets Saturn and Pluto giving you a will of iron and laser like focus, you can improve your health and wellbeing quite radically. This is the time to make some of your physical goals a reality.
The lighter you get, the clearer a channel you become.
Gemini Weekly Forecast: Mar 31- Apr 7, 2019
On Sunday, planet of action Mars returns to your sign for the first time in 2 years, bringing a blast of forward momentum to situations that have been stuck for far too long. But, at the same time, your ruler Mercury meets slippery Neptune for the 3rd time at the pinnacle of your chart, creating a bank of fog and taking you off-piste. Instead of retreating into watching and waiting, decide on a plan of action and stick to it. Paralysis by analysis is a familiar state for you as a changeable Gemini but this would be totally counter-productive in this future oriented, potent astrology, especially as expansionist Jupiter in your opposite sign is turning backwards next week.
Your future is yours to create- a new world is just around the corner.
Cancer Weekly Forecast: Mar 31- Apr 7, 2019
April is set to be one of the most important months of 2019 for you as a Cancerian. With the Sun at the peak of your chart along with a fiery New Moon and change agents Saturn and Pluto in your opposite sign, it’s time to press the re-set button. Mark April 5th and 19th in your diary as times when events change around you. You may have to let someone or something go to claim the new opportunities but, in your heart, you know it’s long overdue. And as Mercury merges with Neptune for the 3rd time in your zone of far horizons, you could be given a second bite of the cherry to study or travel, after being turned down earlier in the year.
Surprises can turn out to be good, so put your umbrella away.
Leo Weekly Forecast: Mar 31- Apr 7, 2019
You may feel conflicting influences at work this week: the desire to get away and break up your routines and comfort zone mixed with a sense of chickens coming home to roost. With ultra-reality planets Saturn and Pluto at odds with both the Node of Fate and the New Moon, a situation at work may unravel. This could be down to poor planning, cutting corners or moving too fast too soon. No matter how it plays out, take the reality check and go over it all again. People will be feeling stressed this month so cut both them and you some slack. Once you’ve dealt with what needs sorting, April is your ideal month to head for the wide blue yonder.
Nothing is set in stone.
Virgo Weekly Forecast: Mar 31- Apr 7, 2019
On Tuesday April 2nd, your ruler Mercury meets shapeshifter Neptune for the 3rd time in a few weeks in your angle of self/other. The last 6 weeks have brought confusion and even disillusion with someone who you thought you knew well. Instead of demanding an explanation or turning detective to ferret out what’s going on, let it go for the moment. The mystery will unravel and unfold all by itself. April is set to be a month of change when the Truth -with a capital T- will reveal what has ben swept under the carpet. Not always pleasant but when you know what was previously hidden, you can move ahead on your own terms.
The truth will set you free.
Libra Weekly Forecast: Mar 31- Apr 7, 2019
For the whole of April, just like Aries, your sign is in the thick of the planetary action with both the New and Full Moons falling across your angles of self/other, so all your relationships, whether personal or professional will be going through a changing of the guard. Starting with Friday’s New Moon in your opposite sign, you could choose press the re-set button on one relationship close to your heart, but with ultra-reality planets Saturn and Pluto at work behind the scenes, events of a karmic nature may return to bite you. There will be several moments of truth time throughout the month, especially on April 19th at the 2nd Full Moon in your sign this year, but once taken on board, you will know exactly what you need to do.
Scorpio Weekly Forecast: Mar 31- Apr 7, 2019
For you as a Scorpio the changes will really begin to materialise after April 20th, so, knowing this in advance, take a step back for the first 3 weeks and don’t push the river. With Mercury merging with shapeshifter Neptune for the 3rd time on Tuesday, the way ahead is still fog bound. It may be tempting to demand answers or turn detective but it would be counter-productive in this peculiarly karmic weather. Instead, if you possibly can, remove yourself from the overwhelming 24/7 information stream, from high pressure circumstances and find time to retreat and recharge. You’ll be so glad you did after April 20th.
Knowing when to be still.
Sagittarius Weekly Forecast: Mar 31- Apr 7, 2019
Watch as your natural optimism and questing spirit returns this week. On Tuesday, Mercury meets Neptune for the 3rd time and something that has been confusing you and frustrating you gradually becomes clearer. Once you know what the truth of the situation is – likely to be connected to your home and family – you can make an informed choice. Then on Friday a New Moon in fellow fire sign Aries lights up your angle of creativity and self-expression. It’s time to make your mark by blazing a new trail, possibly by setting up your own business or devising new income streams or committing to a project that could bear enormous fruit in the months to come.
Take the road less travelled.
Capricorn Weekly Forecast: Mar 31- Apr 7, 2019
As a cardinal sign, you’re right in the thick of April’s powerful astrology. On Friday a New Moon in Aries marks the possibility of a start over or a new beginning at home. This is the time to lay down strong foundations for the future by eliminating the old and outgrown and finding radical ways to enhance yours and your family’s happiness. With change agents Saturn and Pluto in your own sign, it may be taken out of your own hands. Someone may issue an ultimatum or an old way of life may run out of road. Whatever happens, know that it’s just the beginning of a whole new chapter which is expanding your world.
Aquarius Weekly Forecast: Mar 31- Apr 7, 2019
futurist innovative Uranus, you need the new as much as the air you breathe but sometimes you fall into ruts that keep you bound by your own made up rules. Friday’s New Moon in fiery Aries lights a fire under you, challenging you to break up old routines, start new projects and expand your horizons. Your momentum will be accelerated as change agents Saturn and Pluto start to remove-quite literally- old options and outgrown ways of life. Feeling bored with yourself is a definite sign that a shakeup is not just optional but vital.
Say a big Yes to anything that sounds intriguing.
Pisces Weekly Forecast: Mar 31- Apr 7, 2019
April is going to be a month of permanent change- inside and out-for just about everyone, including you. With reality planets Saturn and Pluto in the frame, expect outgrown aspects of your life to be eliminated as if you’ve reached a completely dead end. As circumstances change around you, there’s no option but to adjust, re-think and ask yourself if you’ve been climbing up the wrong ladder. On Tuesday, Mercury merges with your ruler shapeshifter Neptune for the 3rd time and you start to see the truth of one particular relationship or situation. Then at Friday’s fiery New Moon in your money zone, sort out which commitments need to go, which financial leaks need to be filled and make saving a big priority.
Weatherising your personal foundations.
