Pluto Stations Retrograde, the Sun and Uranus Conjunct in Taurus and Mercury Enters Taurus



Pluto, the planet of elimination and transformation, is about to station retrograde in 25 degrees of Capricorn on April 25, 2020 until October 4, 2020 when it stations direct in 22 degrees of Capricorn.  We all know that a planet’s strength and power is heightened when it is stationary and Pluto is no exception, especially this year. 

Pluto is heavily influenced by the Jupiter Pluto conjunction in Capricorn that is exact three times in 2020.  The first one occurred on April 4, 2020 in 24 degrees of Capricorn, the next one occurs on June 30, 2020 in 24 degrees of Capricorn when both planets are retrograde, and the final one occurs on November 12, 2020 in 22 degrees of Capricorn, which is the exact degree of the Saturn Pluto conjunction.  I would not be surprised if there were another wave of the coronavirus in November as there seem to be predictions that it will resurface when flu season begins.

Pluto retrograde has a way of dredging up fears of death and the Coronavirus is the agent that is certainly triggering those fears on a global scale.  And with the Jupiter Pluto conjunction in Capricorn, Pluto retrograde will manifest as a test of faith as we continue to endure government enforcing laws that infringe upon personal freedoms that many of us took for granted.  This is also accompanied by a great deal of suffering and loss on many levels.  We will need to have faith and be as kind and compassionate as possible to others during this Pluto retrograde and this pandemic.

My husband tested positive for COVID-19 on April 17, 2020 and I am presumed positive as well.  I can tell you from personal experience that you do not want this virus, and I am considered to have a milder case.  Pluto is conjunct my natal Chiron in Capricorn in my 4th house and when the Saturn Pluto conjunction in January hit my Chiron, I knew it would affect my home life and pose some sort of healing crisis.  I am trying to fight this insidious and invisible enemy with every intention of beating it.  But my husband has underlying conditions of Parkinson’s disease, heart disease and asthma, which make it more challenging for him.  When I wrote about the need to have faith and be compassionate, I am living proof.  I am tapping into all of my reserves of faith and I consider myself to be extremely grateful for the compassion that my friends and neighbors have demonstrated to me in the past week in terms of delivering groceries, supplies and home cooked meals on our doorstep.  Although I can tell you this virus zaps your sense of taste and appetite.

The sun entered Taurus on April 19, 2020 and on April 21, 2020 it squared Saturn in 1 degree of Aquarius, inspiring me to tweet:
The sun in Taurus will be making another challenging aspect on April 26, 2020 when it conjuncts Uranus in 6 degrees of Taurus.  As I have mentioned before, Uranus is very uncomfortable to begin with in the sign of Taurus.  Taurus is a fixed sign that craves stability and predictability, while Uranus loves to usher in a revolution. This aspect can bring even more unexpected changes and disruptions, and cravings for excitement and freedom.  Most of us are experiencing cabin fever after all of this confinement and some people could be feeling extremely rebellious.  One manifestation of the sun conjunct Uranus is a desire to push out of one’s comfort zone, but these are not ordinary times and pushing for a return to normalcy too soon could result in spreading this pandemic even more.

On April 27, 2020, Mercury enters Taurus until May 11, 2020.  Mercury in Taurus brings a more practical, solid, down to earth and grounded vibe to communications and thinking.  It can be a time of focus and solidifying plans as stability and common sense rule.  I doubt if we will start reopening the country during this brief transit, but it is possible to come up with some strategies for moving forward when it is deemed to be safe.  The shadow side of Mercury in Taurus we can become too rigid in our thinking, but if we are mindful of this, we should be fine.

If you are curious as to how all of these planetary changes will be affecting you, please consider getting an astrological reading.  I have recently revised my menu of services and am now offering a Saturn Pluto Conjunction reading for $25 which will offer you some insight and guidance into how this major astrological event that occurred on January 12, 2020 in 22 degrees of Capricorn will impact you.  It’s not too late to purchase this reading because its effects will be felt for most of 2020.

The Sun Enters Taurus and a Wild Card New Moon in Taurus



The Aries energy has been very strong this week as we continue to battle the Coronavirus.  On April 15, 2020, Mercury and Chiron were conjunct in 6 degrees of Aries, inspiring me to tweet:
But the energy is about to shift on April 19, 2020 when the sun moves into the fixed earth sign of Taurus.  Taurus is a sign that craves stability, luxury and is receptive to pleasure.  It’s ruled by Venus, after all.  And we all know that Aries is ruled by Mars, so there are bound to be some kind of changes happening.  You don’t go from Mars to Venus vibes without a major energy shift. Taurus also likes to be very productive and we could definitely use a productive shift in our battle against this insidious disease that has stopped the world in its tracks.  But the shadow side of Taurus is that it can be stubborn and possessive because it is a fixed sign.

On April 22, 2020 we have a new moon in 3 degrees of Taurus.  Ironically, this is also Earth Day and it marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day.  It’s a perfect time to set a new intention for the earth, as new moons pertain to setting new intentions. I am referring to this new moon in Taurus as a wild card new moon because of its loaded aspects to Uranus and Saturn.  For starters, it conjuncts Uranus in 6 degrees of Taurus and it squares Saturn in 1 degree of Aquarius.  The new moon conjunct Uranus in Taurus could trigger some financial upsets, which is perfectly understandable given the current state of the economy and the world.  Uranus is extremely uncomfortable in the sign of Taurus because Taurus wants stability and Uranus wants revolutionary change.  With Uranus conjunct the new moon, we could also see some unsettling weather patterns as well. 

The new moon in Taurus squaring Saturn in Aquarius is especially troubling because it underscores the theme of the Saturn Uranus square which will prevail throughout 2021 and be exact in February 2021.  Saturn and Uranus in a square aspect do not play well in the sandbox.  The current lockdown is a manifestation of this aspect.  While Uranus is in favor of rebelling against the status quo, Saturn wants to preserve it and go back to the way things were.  It is becoming increasingly clear that our lives are not returning to that status quo any time soon.

The new moon in Taurus also squaring Saturn in Aquarius (the sign ruled by Uranus, I might add) also has a tendency to trigger fears, delays, tests and challenges.  The best way to deal with this new moon is to try to release our fears, which are very real and palpable at this time.  We need to remember that fear attracts fear, so let’s try to set a new intention of releasing them.  Perhaps we need to sit with our deepest fears because they represent a form of shadow work.  It might be helpful to write them down and release them so they don’t have such a hold on us.  I always love to meditate on a new moon to set new intentions, but this new moon is especially important to me.

It’s also important to remember that this new moon is ruled by Venus and we should try to set some new intentions to act in a more loving way towards others.  A new moon in Taurus is also an optimal time to spend some in nature if possible.  And if you can’t get outside, at least get outside in your meditations.

Mercury Enters Aries and the Aries Sun Squares Pluto and Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn




It has been an extremely difficult and challenging week with the Coronavirus.  The fact that we had a full moon in Libra on April 7, 2020 only intensified the emotional angst as the death toll rose.  On that day I tweeted:
The Aries energy is still strong and about to get even stronger when Mercury enters the cardinal fire sign of Aries on April 11, 2020 where it stays until April 27, 2020.  Mercury finally cleared its retrograde shadow on March 29th in 12 degrees of Pisces.  Mercury in Aries will be a whole new ballgame when it comes to communications.  Mercury in Aries tends to benefit from quick thinking; it doesn’t dawdle over decision making.  Communication is more direct and spontaneous.  Long-range thinking is easier than when Mercury was in Pisces; we want to take actions on new ideas and implement them.  We should be feeling more courageous and innovative while we are open to bursts of inspiration.  Mercury in Pisces may have led us to be more compassionate towards others, but its shadow side involved aligning with a victim mentality.  Mercury in Aries will fight to overcome this invisible foe called Coronavirus.

Mercury in Aries can actually be a potent ally for us in the battle against Coronavirus if we don’t get tripped up by the shadow side of Mercury in Aries: its tendency towards impatience.  But many of us are probably feeling even more impatience in these days of staying at home and tempers could be flaring.  Lockdowns are by no means fun and they serve to remind us of how many of our freedoms have been restricted and that prolonged periods of confinement take their toll on our mental health.  I can’t help thinking that Saturn’s entrance into Aquarius, however briefly this year (only until July 1st when it re-enters Capricorn and then it returns to Aquarius on December 17, 2020) is partially responsible for the restrictions on social interactions.  Who ever thought we would need to stand in line to be allowed to shop in a supermarket?  But now that supermarket workers, in addition to healthcare workers, are dying from Coronavirus, stricter measures are being enforced.  They are truly our heroes these days and they deserve respect and protection.  I live in Massachusetts, and we are projected to experience the peak of this pandemic from April 10th through April 20th, so I have no doubt that the restrictions will be more stringent in the days to come.

On April 14, 2020, the sun in Aries will form an exact square to Pluto in Capricorn in 24 degrees of their respective signs.  This aspect is hitting me very personally.  Pluto is conjunct my natal Chiron in Capricorn in my 4th house and I have a natal Sun Pluto square with my Scorpio sun and Pluto in Leo.  This could definitely be a day involving power struggles.  We may be feeling a need to be in control and ego conflicts with authority figures could ensue.  There is a strong likelihood of experiencing a crisis that leads to extreme or destructive behavior.  This aspect can trigger deep psychological issues involving fears, death or losing control. But the silver lining of this aspect is that it is very transformative and can lead to rebirth and a greater sense of inner power.  Let’s hope that we all get to experience that transformation without too much pain.

On April 15, 2020 the sun in 25 degrees of Aries forms an exact square to Jupiter in 25 degrees of Capricorn.  This aspect won’t be as challenging as the sun’s square to Pluto, but it can be perceived as a two edged sword because it can make us feel overly confident, proud, lucky and optimistic.  So this aspect can manifest as success and good luck or loss and humiliation.  Jupiter loves to expand whatever it touches, and there is an inherent danger with this aspect of becoming too complacent about the dangers that the Coronavirus represents.  No one is immune from this disease.  The best way to navigate this day is to show some respect, moderation and discipline, which is not an easy feat during these challenging time.  Sun square Jupiter has a way of making us bite off more than we can chew and we need to be mindful of this and also be very careful with finances.

Venus Enters Gemini, Jupiter and Pluto Conjunction in Capricorn and a Full Moon in Libra




We have a rather busy week ahead of us astrologically.  On April 3, 2020, Venus enters the mutable air sign of Gemini until August 7, 2020 due to the upcoming Venus retrograde.  Venus stations retrograde in 21 degrees of Gemini on May 13, 2020 and stations direct in 5 degrees of Gemini on June 24, 2020.  On April 4, 2020, Jupiter and Pluto are conjunct in 24 degrees of Capricorn for the first of three Jupiter Pluto conjunctions of 2020.  The next two occur on June 29, 2020 and November 12, 2020.  And we have the biggest super full moon of the year in 18 degrees of Libra on April 7, 2020.

Venus in Gemini is usually considered to be a very social and communicative transit in which bonding occurs on a more mental level.  Intelligence is more appealing than physical attributes when Venus is transiting the air sign of Gemini.  Humor is also very important when Venus is in Gemini.  We need this quality during the Coronavirus pandemic, as it is forcing us to be social in less physical ways and we are forced to be more introspective about our relationships and finances.  The shadow side of Venus in Gemini is that it tends to be more fickle and finds it difficult to commit.  The fact that Venus will be retrograde in Gemini (the torn between two lovers archetype) from May through the end of June 2020 reinforces the theme of not making any major commitments such as marriage during this period.  Sorry to burst the bubble for anyone considering a June wedding.  Relationships and finances (Venus also rules money) are apt to be quite volatile during this transit.  Venus will be conjuncting my natal moon in Gemini in my 8th house on April 22, 2020 and on July 19, 2020, so I am definitely in the crossfire of this Venus in Gemini transit.

On April 4, 2020, Jupiter and Pluto are conjunct in 24 degrees of Capricorn.  Jupiter is not very comfortable in the sign of Capricorn and when it is conjunct Pluto it will magnify Pluto’s penchant for digging deep into our psyches to unearth fears that have disempowered us in order to transform ourselves.  I think it’s pretty safe to say that we are all feeling pretty fearful these days with the Coronavirus because it has totally dismantled the structures of our lives.  Fear is raging yet we need to tap into our reserves of strength and courage to deal with situations that are totally out of our control.  I think that it goes without saying that we now realize that the Saturn Pluto conjunction in 22 degrees of Capricorn on January 12, 2020 has disrupted the old order   of things with the Coronavirus.  The Coronavirus was beginning its spread in China back then. Jupiter conjunct Pluto in Capricorn has a strong theme of large scale happenings as we face the collapse of the old order and we approach the peak of the pandemic in mid to late April 2020. 

It won’t be easy, but we need to remember that Pluto is deepening Jupiter’s capacity to develop more faith, hope and optimism during these challenging times. I am clinging to the hope that as Jupiter and Pluto separate in July 2020, due to Pluto stationing retrograde on April 25, 2020 in 26 degrees of Capricorn and Jupiter stationing retrograde on May 14, 2020 in 27 degrees of Capricorn, we can see a return to normalcy.

The Jupiter Pluto conjunction is exactly conjunct my natal Chiron in Capricorn in my 4th house, and already I am feeling truly vulnerable. I am questioning if this is yet an opportunity to heal old wounds. Anyone who knows me well (and that is no easy feat with me being an intensely private Scorpio) knows that I don’t do vulnerable well.  I am inherently tough and defensive, but this pandemic has brought me to tears on more occasions than I care to admit and I confess to being scared.  I was watching 60 Minutes last week and totally resonated with what BrenĂ© Brown said about her difficulty with feeling vulnerable and the fact that we all have to admit that we are afraid in order to find courage and compassion for others.  I am also very mindful of the fact that the third Jupiter Pluto conjunction on November 12, 2020 occurs on my birthday in 22 degrees of Capricorn, which is the same degree of the Saturn Pluto conjunction in January.

On April 7, 2020 we have the biggest super full moon of the year in 18 degrees of Libra.  It’s called a super moon because the moon is extremely close to the earth.  I know that in my home state of Massachusetts, we have been told that the Coronavirus should reach its peak from April 7th through April 17th. I can’t sugarcoat the potential ramifications of this full moon; it will be a deeply emotional time. It will be extremely challenging because it is squaring that Jupiter Pluto conjunction in Capricorn and Mars in Aquarius will be squaring Uranus in Taurus, which is an aspect that screams the urge to break free from restriction and rebel against authority.  That is not exactly conducive energy these days when we are being asked to restrict our physical movements as a matter of life and death.  The fact that this full moon occurs in the relationship oriented sign of Libra further emphasizes the value we place on relationships, especially the relationship we have with ourselves. Libra is also associated with fairness, justice and balance.  This is a time when governments need to work to benefit the people, not just corporations. 

Personally, I have always found the annual full moon in Libra to be one of the more challenging full moons but this year that is especially true due to the Coronavirus and the fact that the full moon in 18 degrees of Libra conjuncts my ascendant in 16 degrees of Libra and squares my midheaven in 19 degrees of Cancer.  I am trying to have some gratitude for the fact that this full moon trines my Mars in Aquarius and my Gemini moon.  Maybe that grand air trine will work for me if I exert some effort…
