The Cage Door is Wide Open – Astrology Forecast April 14th – 21st 2024

April 14th, 2024

Circle April 18th – 26th 2024 in your diary. On those dates, the rare and auspicious Jupiter / Uranus conjunction at 21°/22° Taurus will be exact, starting a new 13-year financial cycle. As it is activated in the seismic aftermath of a fierce Aries eclipse first by Mars at 21° Pisces, then April 25th Scorpio Full Moon and May’s Taurus New Moon, expect shocks and reversals on the world stage and later the seeds of social reforms.

This is the first Jupiter/Uranus conjunction in financial sign Taurus since the 1940s, which led to Lend Lease to help rebuild Europe and the tide turning against the Nazis.

Using the symbology of the Tarot, the Magician (Uranus) and the Hierophant (Jupiter) are creating pure alchemy together – turning lead into gold. Jupiter is lucky and Uranus surprises. Taurus rules love, money, values and your self-esteem. The bull symbolises stock markets, gold bullion, your bank account, your assets. All these will be electrified.

This is nothing less than a ride on the Wheel of Fortune breaking you out of scarcity consciousness.

If you have planets or angles between 18°-24° Taurus, this is going to be an exciting, electric, buzzing time. But it’s much bigger than that. Collectively, everyone can benefit – people stuck in bad situations could suddenly discover a way out.

Depending on which part of your life the conjunction lights up in your birth chart, you might get an unexpected promotion, meet someone new or begin a meaningful creative project.

All boats are being lifted on this Jupiter/Uranus high tide, so raise your sails. Jupiter opens doors but you have to run through them. Uranus unshackles you.  Luck increases when you run on the fuel of curiosity and generosity.

The Jupiter-Uranus Formula for a true breakthrough:

  • at every choice point, choose new over old, then boldly act on it

  • be ready to bargain and negotiate your way to a better situation

  • don’t simply sit back and wait for shiny things to drop in your lap, it will be too late-the wave will have passed

  • be resourceful – sell old unwanted clutter to make energetic space for the new

  • find Your Flow Magic – the sweet spot between surrender to life as it unfolds and full- on engagement/participation.

  • notice what’s inspiring your imagination or pressing the accelerator on the engine of your creative expression

  • plant an acorn that will grow into an oak tree. Remember, this is Taurus – the biggest gamble will take time and investment before you see the results.

Note: Iran sending missiles to Israel overnight is only the first fallout of the fierce warlike Aries Solar eclipse of April 8th. As I wrote on April 6th: “The collective, global and personal impact/ repercussions/ fallout of this total eclipse will be felt for the next 6 months to the next solar eclipse in Libra on October 2 2024. With the Sun/ Moon/ Chiron/ Mercury/ Eris all clustered in Martian Aries linked to a heavyweight Mars/Saturn conjunction in Pisces and volatile Uranus in Taurus, the stakes will be very high amid threats of war and brinkmanship.”

Chandra Symbol Jupiter/Uranus 22 Taurus: a blindfolded woman who sees the future

“Witnessing dispassionately the flow of time. Standing outside of all linear progression and knowing what is likely to happen here. Supremely disengaged from surface affairs, even lightly dismissive of all secondary considerations, but tuned right in to the thread of prophecy and inner vision. Granted a certain grace to follow the inner track. And serving a larger function as part shaman, part seer, and part commonsensical advisor. Salty wit, earthy and pithy, no nonsense. You know where the bones are buried. Penetrating insight. A throwback to simpler worlds. One who warns of dangers ahead, and is not amused by factions and fragments and phantoms of common assumption.” Inside Degrees Elias Lonsdale
