At the beginning of April we had the second of two eclipses this spring season. The first eclipse was a solar eclipse last month on March 20, and now we just had a total lunar eclipse on April 4, 2015. This eclipse occurs on the full moon at 20 degrees Virgo in the nakshatra of Hasta. With the eclipse in Virgo, issues around health, diet, discrimination, and work/service can be themes. The nakshatra of Hasta indicates concerns arising around injustices in the world, possibly challenging powerful opponents, as we understand just how powerful our words can be.

Being a full moon eclipse, we might feel a greater emotional charge and amplified energies at this time. Eclipses are tied to shifts in one’s life, bringing to surface hidden matters to be faced, so we can heal and grow. An eclipse can be an important learning experience, prompting us to take action and make needed changes. Eclipses are great times for introspection, meditation, and prayer, but are not favored for material or worldly pursuits. The effects of eclipses can last for several months.

Venus, planet of love, relationships, and healing, transits its own sign of Taurus from April 6, 2015 until May 2, 2015. Venus in Taurus will increase the need for stability in love, closeness to family and friends, and a desire for a more comfortable environment. We seek security and more tangible expressions of love in our relationships. Watch for over-possessiveness.

Venus in Taurus will oppose transiting Saturn in Scorpio at 10 degrees on April 15, 2015. You may feel more serious with love relationships, wanting a deeper commitment, or you can feel unstable, burdened, and unloved. This is a good time to practice taking personal responsibility for our own self-love. Be kind and generous to others.

On April 8, 2015 exalted Jupiter in Cancer, the great benefic planet of spirituality, philosophy and beliefs, and good fortune now goes direct, after being retrograde since early December 2014. After four months of deep spiritual introspection, we now become more active in the outer world, expressing our newly discovered beliefs and values. Faith and optimism are increasing. New ventures started now can bring more success and joy, as we want to do good things for others and our world.

The Sun moves to Aries, its exalted sign, from April 14 to May 14, 2015, joining Mars already traveling in Aries since March 23. The Sun and Mars will both be in Aries from April 14 to May 3, and then Mars shifts to Taurus on May 3. So for last two weeks of April we experience much fiery energy with two pitta planets in a pitta sign! The Sun in Aries brings desire to lead and initiate and we are enthusiastic and spontaneous. We feel empowered, ambitious, and in charge.

We also experience frustrations if results don’t come quickly, as well as an inability to not look very far ahead. So be a bit more patient and plan with the future in mind. With Mars in Aries its own sign (along with exalted Sun) our competitive nature is strong and we want to be first! We can be more direct, goal-oriented and active in all endeavors.

Just watch for increased impulsiveness, anger issues, and self-centeredness. This conjunction of Sun and Mars can give great stamina, so focusing on self-improvement modalities and helping others is a remedy to create more balance and peace.


Note: Vedic astrology, the astrology from India, uses the sidereal zodiac, the zodiac of the fixed stars, which is based on a more accurate astronomical view of the planets in the sky.
