The month begins with Mercury entering the sign of Gemini the Twins, and the Sun and Venus will soon follow in the next couple of weeks. These cosmic shifts lead up to a pair of eclipses along the Sagittarius/Gemini axis, with a Mercury retrograde cycle to add fireworks (the Universe has a sense of humor).
The week begins with a Full Moon in the sign of Scorpio on Monday, April 26 – full peak will be around 11:31 p.m. EDT. Add the transit of Mars in the sign of Cancer the Crab, and we’ve got ourselves an emotionally charged few days ahead.
Earlier this year, I collaborated with oneTILT and Zenit Journals to create a pair of Journals for Racial Healing. We developed a “Journal for Aspiring White Anti-Racists,” and a “BIPOC Journal (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) for Healing and Liberation.”
We’re fresh off the heels of an Aries New Moon that sees five luminaries total (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Chiron) in the sign of the Ram. This is amplified energy, folks. The urge to assert will be strong this week. But so too, will your efforts be blocked.
Last week I got on a plane for the first time in exactly two years and remembered why I love to travel. Everything from checking in at the airport, to take off, to visiting a new city, brought up memories of all the places I’ve been in my life, and fortunately, there have been many. I was so grateful to find myself above the clouds once again, communing with the Universe.

Mars is known to be the warrior planet in Astrology that incites us to act, aggress and assert. Gemini, meanwhile, is the sign of information – the “forever student” that wants to learn, teach and communicate knowledge received.
A tight stellium of planets in the sign of Aquarius that has been holding strong since the start of February is beginning to separate.
Nina Simone once famously wrote, “We need to learn to leave the table when love is not being served.” What is equally important is that we learn to invite fear to the table when it has us in its grips.
A bevy of planets will hang out in constellation Aquarius this week (one of them retrograde), and a New Moon joins them on Thursday, February 11th. There's a saying that too much of anything is never really a good thing. The next few days will be filled with one too many eccentricities.
