MERCURY quincunx PLUTO, 16th, @3:36:47 pm(aest) exact.
A quincunx is friction, no understanding between two planets involved. I just don’t know or understand how that is going to work. But they are still connecting and they have to work it out, they need to make some adjustments.
Mercury in Gemini (mind, thoughts, perception), is going to have to be flexible here as Pluto in Capricorn more than likely won’t be, that’s the power and authority part. Mercury may have to choose what to do. You may have to use your head to get you out of it, come up with an idea.
You may find an obstacle or roadblock in your path, it may be uncomfortable and not easy. This may be something you just don’t get, and you may have to dig deep in your thoughts, an it be emotional, to find a solution.
A few twist and turn, and Adjustments and you are good to go.
MERCURY trine JUPITER! exact 14th @1:35:15 am(east)

You may think bigger, you may see the bigger picture. Good day to study, look at new projects, business, sign a contract,.

MERCURY squares NEPTUNE! exact 14th @1:35:15 pm (east)
Mercury after trining Jupiter which is a supporting aspects meets up with Neptune, in a square more of a challenge, this can make your mind fogging and bring in some doubts. One day your sure and the next day you’re not? Some communication can be misleading, your don’t receive them clearly, you may not focus as well. Not such a good day for business or business dealings, thing or information will not be clear to you. When in doubt don’t.
Idealizing people or situations not good either, try to keep it all in the real world.
However for your imagination, dreams, mediation it’s a wonderful time for some magic to happen.
This weeks card is the 4 of swords.
Air, thoughts, mind, communication, stresses, anxiety and worries.
Four of swords rest, recuperation, recovery and healing. Meditation and stillness.
Time for a rest, give yourself a break from the worrying, tiring thoughts that run around your head. Thinking about the same thing, trying to find an answer or some relief from. Get out of your own way, and step away for awhile.
To do this, do something else, get busy, watch a movie , read a book, get creative, let your mind focus on something else, allow some space in your brain to shift the focus, to give you an answer, if it’s full there is no room.
Plus also have a rest take some time off, or at lest get out of your usual schedule, relax, let go, here again the answer, insight and new information can come in. Recharge your mind and body.
Peace of mind will come, a restful heart will follow, but first you need to just stop for a while of over thinking things, information will come to you. when you be receptive to the answer.

This weeks card is the 4 f coins or pentacles.
earth element, stability, safety, security, money, work, home, possessions, body and senses, the material realm.
Four of coins is a tricky cards, it deals with building, power, stability, security and the flip side of that is, are you holding on to tightly, to rigid, fearful of change and growth, allowing nothing else to come your way. This is a question you ask yourself with the 4 of coins. What once was giving you security is perhaps no longer needed? Keep in mind that this could also be about and attitude, beliefs, emotions, not just money, work, the physical, material world.
Living in a world of limits, physically and emotionally?
You have worked hard at getting to this place in your financial, material, world, you have also worked hard on your internal, emotional place, building on giving you a solid foundation. Your internal base is good. You have found the stability within you. Keep building on and from this point of structure, don’t build yourself in, get stuck or stay the same.
The next phase of the 4 of coins is to let go, move on, open up a little.

All new or anything new is what is being asked for with the pages. Being a coin card, its by keeping and taking action in practical, logical ways, making sure that it’s real and true is how anything you want to manifest will form and grow.
May also be news or message coming your way. If it looks true, and you can take it serious, then pay attention to that message for growth and change.

Venus goes Direct, Mercury – Saturn – Jupiter are still Rx, waiting for Pluto to join them on the 20th.
It’s been a somewhat intense/challenging couple of weeks, thanks to Pluto, Uranus and Jupiter, all meeting up. Jupiter triggered the now, very long Pluto/Uranus square which began in 2012, digging you up and making you change. Jupiter touches it, so more change and unearthing of you is being challenged.
Venus was not only Rx for her 40 days and night journey back inwards to herself, checking in on her values, love, relationship, worth and self-esteem, which makes her feeling tired and stripped bare, plus she also had to handle Chiron, her wounding Ouch!, and Saturn, asking her to face it, keep it all real, be responsible and do her work.
Well, hopefully you have, and survived the intensity of it all, but I have to say April is not over yet, so maybe hold on a little longer.
Venus moves forward, leaving Chiron and Saturn slowly behind. Moving forward with Venus you should have a good or better understanding of worth, and what’s really important to you.
Sun did conjunct Uranus, heats up, shines the light on freedom, independence, and the future. Separating now.
Pluto Rx on the 20th, @19° Capricorn and ends on September 28 at 16° Capricorn. Pluto is power and control, what, how, who are or has control over you or who, how what are you controlling? Habits, attitudes, behaviors, people, addiction, well it could be anything. It’s eliminate/remove time, your soul is seeking spiritual evolution, to transcend, to master.
21st of April Mercury Rx back into Aries before going forward again on, May 4th. You’re an independent thinker, and like to think up new ideas or goals, you might experience flashes of passion or thinking more about your desires.
Many planets are Rx, as with all Rx it’s time for going slow, re-addressing, reflecting, internalizing, you may not feel as if you are making much progress forward during the next few month, but whatever work, purging, changes you do make will be beneficial to your future.
Go slow, trust and believe you have within you the goodies to succeed.
This weeks card is the Knight of coins.
Earth, practical, logical, pragmatic, grounded, and a steadfast approach.
Knights – action and or movement. Serious and stable planning. He wants to build things in his life. The knight of coins or pentacle, is the grounded, logical, earthy knight, he does achieve what he sets his mind too.
Relates, to money, career, work, hard-working, physical world, manifesting, manifestation, body, nature, nature, home, investments.
The other side of this knight is that he may cut himself off from his feelings, emotions or passions, as he is working or doing so much, to achieve his goals or plans. He is asking you to look at the feelings that lay dormant inside of you, that passionate, engaging, spirited part of you, your beliefs, attitudes to help you improve your life.
He is a movement card, so things may start to move again for you. However the key to this is your emotions. You might have to change your focus for a while, on how you are manifesting your desires.
He may have lost his way or be feeling a little lost, and to move forward, he needs and wants to connect with emotions, feelings and joy, in any further creating he would like to do.
It’s a path with heart <3….To continue on he needs to feel.

Venus slips back into Pisces, Venus is happy here, sweet, kind and compassionate.
There is of course a twist, she squares up to Saturn in Sag all through the month of April. He is the reality check, a time to look at your self-esteem and worth, in regards to yourself and what you are trying to manifest. Saturn keeps it real, now, you also have too. Time to bring it back to the truth, you may start to see the walls dissolve, the illusions/disillusions slip away, and you look, see, hear what is real and right in front of you. Then you take the steps to keep it in the right place/perspective.
Saturn also goes Rx on the 6th of April till 27th August. Saturn is giving you the space to get in and do the work, usually hard work, Saturn wants you to look at what and where, that work needs to be done. Like all Rx periods it’s the inner road you are now walking on, to re-do, regroup, reassess, it might mean you do have to be more serious(Saturn) about what you are trying to create and manifest, as when Saturn goes Direct you will be accountable for what you take forward with you. You know you’re responsible for your life right!
You have the opportunity to work on what you know is true and real, as in can you manifest it in the physical world, or is it here already and now comes the work, (very Saturn) and let the other leave or let it go.
I personally do not mind the Saturn Rx period I feel that he gives me some breathing space to catch up on what I feel is really important in my life, instead of just being driven to do and work hard at achieving, and many times I am working on things that don’t ever really manifest fully, but I put a lot of time and energy into.
So…. let the veils fall through Venus in Pisces, let the rub of Saturn remove the curtain that hides the truth, look for your inner compass again and slow down.
April is BIG month, change happens. Here are some of the action that will take place this month. I will try to blog when the changes happen. Go check out your birth chart for where the action will happen.

This weeks card is the King of Coins.
Stability-security-endings and beginnings-mastery
This king comes along to tell you that you have reached a level of success or achievement in areas of money, work, career, goals, he is the earth king. He is practical, steadfast and ambitious to achieve his goals and he does this by working hard, being present, strong, and knowing what he wants.
You have or are reaching this level, you have overcome many things and have worked hard at applying your skills of self-discipline, logic and being practical in your approach. Also being very, in the here and now, working with the rhythms of your body and nature, listening to your feelings and emotions. This is how this king masters the elements.
The past is behind you and the future awaits, gifts may come your way, you are stronger then you think or even know.
To me he is also a smaller version of the Emperor, in his power, in charge of his world.
