Biz StarCast – April 2024 Edition

April 2024 Biz StarCast Overview

March Vibes: Self direction, Inspired action, Spiritual values and responsibility

We are in the midst of Eclipse Season which means we are all mid-flight along our quantum path towards being comfortable being the Vulnerable Leader. The leader that brightly shares the wisdom gained from their challenges with courage and compassion.

Last week’s Lunar Eclipse (turbo charged Full Moon where you can see the unseen) opened up what we needed to break down in order to release.

And next week’s Solar Eclipse (turbo charged New Moon where you are asked to jump into an unknown) asks you to take a leap of faith so you can break through.

Of course with all this unknown you may be dealing with fear in all its shapes: fear of failure, rejection, conflict, criticism, or the ever present imposter syndrome.

Whenever you are facing the unknown, fear shows up to protect you. Yet, if you don’t face your fear and stay in the known, how will you stretch, grow and fly?

To face your fears takes

  • faith, a belief in a possibility
  • trust, an action you take based on your faith
  • And regulation of your emotions or nervous system so you can disrupt reaction patterns and turn them into intentional responses.

When you have these 3 ingredients, you can peel back the protective layers to go within to the roots of these fears. How you’ve failed, been rejected, been persecuted in the past.

But not to simply relieve the pain, but to get curious without judgement because there are gems in there.

  • How did I react?
  • What did I learn?
  • What was a pleasant surprise?
  • How long has this held me back?

In my membership AND with my personal Soul Squad, we have intentionally been working with this eclipse energy to uncover these fears.

What I have personally found out was that some of my most deep rooted fears have held me back for 30 years!! I kid you not. I will share this on IG soon, so stay tuned.

What a relief to do this deep work, despite it being uncomfortable, because a 2 minute realization opened up 30 years of opportunity lost and believe you me, I will not let that happen again!

April in the Cosmos

As we approach April, the cosmos has more support and energy to help you face our fears so that you can truly BE a leader. BE your own hero. And BE the best version of you.

Mercury Rx in Aries

It’s a wild month, with Mercury Retrograde beginning right on April 1, putting on the breaks with your go-go-go mindset so that you slow down to rethink your risk taking and re-activate your leadership without stress. If you keep driving and pushing fast forward ahead, you’re going to derail. Let this be your sign.

Aries Solar Eclipse conjunct Chiron

Then we have the Great American Eclipse conjunct Chiron to the exact degree and minute! The symbolism blows my mind. – Your leadership and your Chiron Contribution is inseparable from your Luminary Leadership.

What you can’t heal in yourself, you can heal in others and this is your contribution to the World that makes you a leader. You become the leader through your service to others based on the personal wisdom you gained from overcoming pain and challenge.

Jupiter Uranus Conjunction

Then the big bang! The two expansion and liberation titans of the sky meet up. This occurrence, once every 13 or so years, signals a new cycle of technical progress sparking a massive shift in progress related to technology, energy/energetics/physics, space/aeronautic exploration, and everything connected to neuroscience and genetics.

It’s not that at this exact meetup, everything will change. This energy has been building up, and will continue to be in orb for at least a month. Just like a New Moon where the Sun and Moon meet up to create a new cycle of intention, this meetup of two giants sparks a new meta-cycle of meaning, purpose, and expansion (Jupiter) with awakening, change, and quantum leaping (Uranus).

It’s a big month for you to take some big leaps. Even though things are accelerating, shift into lower gears so that you don’t run off the rails by not facing your fears and rethinking what it would be to truly be a leader like no other.

April 1, 2024 – April 6, 2024

We begin the week and the whole month of April with a screeching halt. After March’s theme of GSD (get shit done), April opens up with Mercury moving into retrograde and subsequently tracing its steps back through Aries so slowly. Good news is, with the 4Q moon in Cap on the same day there are definitely elements of utilizing relaxation as a way to access your creativity (thank you Venus conjunct Neptune). It’s not all leaden though, Venus moves into Aries later this week so you could see an uptick in your connections.

April 01, 2024

04/01 – Re-activating Your Leadership – Mercury Retrograde begins Aries 27° at 3:14 PM PT | 6:14 PM ET. This is a significant Mercury Retrograde, in the midst of Eclipse season, book ended by the North Node and connecting the dots of Chiron. What this means is that Mercury is here to recalibrate your mindset and thought processes to jump into your leadership that is part of your soul potential!

Honestly you can’t make up this divine timing and symbolism. It’s incredible.

What is clear about this timing is that fear, anxiety, stress is on high alert in the collective. This happens when you are faced with uncertainty or the unknown. And we are at the dawn of a new way of being, a new way of leadership, of course, it can be scary.

To be the hero, to take charge, to lead, you take action and initiate not because you lack fear, but because you know that doing right is more important than hiding.

Now Mercury Rx is here to be the medicine that eases your reactionary force so you can respond instead with inspired action that puts you on your highest path.

When Mercury retrogrades in Aries, you get to rethink who “I AM.”

  • Reassert how you want to be seen as a leader
  • Reactivate how you initiate and take action
  • Restore confidence and bravery
  • Respond to anxiety and fear
  • Reawaken emotional security for risk taking
  • Reveal your voice to advocate your truth
  • Redefine your leadership as part of your soul purpose

Schedule

  • 3/18/24 Enters shadow zone – Aries 15°
  • 4/1/24 Station retrograde – Aries 27°
  • 4/11/24 Midpoint combust – Aries 22°
  • 4/25/24 Station direct – Aries 15°
  • 5/13/24 Leaves shadow zone – Aries 27°

Astro Notes

  • 1st MRx cycle in 2024
  • 12°, 24 days – short distance, long duration, slow moving Mercury
  • Conjunct NN (3/18, 4/25 SD) – Start and end with NN
  • Conjunct Chiron (3/20, 4/15, 5/5) – Is it safe to speak my ideas?
  • Conjunct Venus (4/19) – How do I communicate to connect?

04/01 – Relax your bones – 4Q Moon Capricorn 12° at 8:!5PM PT | 11:15 PM ET. The last quarter moon phase is an integration phase in our lives and Work. A time to cultivate all that we have learned and assess what we want to continue with and what we want to churn back into the Earth to fertilize our intentions. Such an aligned message with Mercury Rx today.

With the Capricorn 4Q moon, spend some integration time restoring alone. It’s during this alone time you can get clear with all the goals and responsibilities you’ve put upon yourself to see if they are still consistent with your Work now. Rest is a necessity for achievement. Block off time for yourself in the next few days. The more time alone and away you spend, the more productive you will be when you come back.

[Sacred Day] A great day to restore and refine your ambitions.

April 03, 2024

04/03 – Creativity + imagination flows – Venus conjunct Neptune at 6:10 AM PT | 9:10 AM ET. One of the brightest days of the year – you’ll feel good, so be sure to connect with those you love. Venus and Neptune meeting up feels absolutely beautiful and expansive, especially in Pisces where Neptune is at home and Venus is exalted like a VIP guest. For a day leading up to and away from this meetup feels like a soul encompassing joyful embrace, ahh. Venus, our ability to connect with the right people and the right resources, and Neptune, a similar energy at a higher octave, interconnects us all at a soul-level. When these two lovely energies meet, everything beautiful and sublime comes together in dreamy vision. This is a great energy to feel and manifest your dreams. The challenge is to take that vision from so high above and bring it down to this Earthly plane without losing this fleeting yet intense Love. Capture this beauty by sharing it through the generous work you offer in your business.

What is your higher octave of creativity and connectivity?

[Sacred Day] A great day to let your imagination soar

Especially “vibeful” for mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces).

Venus Pisces conjunct Neptune Pisces 28°

April 04, 2024

04/04 – Connect by taking lead – Venus enters Aries at 9:00 PM PT | 12:00 AM +1 ET. Now through April 29, Venus (attraction and abundance) quickly sails through Aries meeting up with the North Node (life purpose, stretch potential and soul’s growth) on April 17, then Mercury Rx (communication reflection, revisiting plans) on April 19.

While in Aries, Venus loves extending the invitation and opening the doors to connect with other trailblazers, risk and action takers and those that desire to be the best and the first. A bit of competition is fun for Venus in Aries as she knows that it makes her extra attractive. Venus in Aries glows up with all things edgy and risky. In your Work, how can you use this energy to connect with other risk takers and leaders, like you, who are ready to leap into action? Because there’s no time like now to get a jump start!

Venus stays in Aries for just a few weeks (and that’s great for her, because taking the lead isn’t normally her M.O.). She would rather wait for the invitation and will be able to relax when she returns home to her cozy home sign of Taurus.

With what pioneers and leaders are you meant to connect?

Have Venus in Aries natally? If you have your natal Venus in Aries you are attracted to taking risks, especially when it comes to attracting other go-getters and being an early adopter. It’s hard for you to cool it in groups, as you naturally want all the attention. It’s easy for you to go after what you want, especially when it comes to something you see as the best of the best. Know that it’s ok to want only the best, for it’s in your soul. Know that this is a strength, as you have a keen ability to sense these things out. People are drawn to you for your hots and your drive. And be sure that the vibes you are giving off, you are harnessing in honorable ways, not to take advantage of others. In your Work, harness your go-get-it value and heat up your worth.

April 7, 2024 – April 13, 2024

Get ready for a week of profound awakening! The Monday solar eclipse, alongside the Chiron conjunction, ushers in a transformative period, especially amplifying your healing and leadership journey. Dive deep into your inner world for essential healing and awaken to your true potential. This New Moon radiates ‘Big Leap’ energy, inviting you to step up as a leader and embrace significant breakthroughs.

April 08, 2024

04/08 – Leap Into Your Healing Leadership – Total Solar Eclipse Aries 19° 11:21 AM PT | 2:21 PM ET. It’s the first New Moon of the astrological New Year. The Sun, in its sign of exaltation, a true super star in Aries. And this is not just a New Moon, it’s a Solar Eclipse, a turbocharged New Moon where the Sun and Moon are in perfect alignment, the Moon sitting exactly between the Earth and the Sun. This is a potent new beginning that requires a leap of faith. The start of a new cycle, of taking chances and jumping into the unknown. A fresh start of inner trust so deep, that you know that you will land gracefully on your feet, thrilled at where you landed AND thrilled that you overcame your fear to leap. Today you plant the seeds to leap into your healing leadership in your Work.

April 10, 2024

04/10 – Act Intentionally – Mars conjunct Saturn at 1:36 PM PT | 4:36 PM ET. For a few days leading up to and away from this meeting, it’s essential to temper the impulse to dominate circumstances out of fear—a reaction that could unnecessarily escalate into aggressive responses. For sensitive ones, instead of control, you may want to hide. Remember, this phase is fleeting. Embrace the Piscean compassion about the intense emotions surfacing now.
Mars in Pisces conjunct Saturn in Pisces gently nudges you towards understanding that true strength lies in your ability to navigate your emotions with grace and to act with intentionality.

What is at the heart of your need for emotional control?

[Power Day] A great day to be productive

Especially intense for Mutable signs (Pisces, Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo)

Mars conjunct Saturn in Pisces 14°

April 11, 2024

04/11 – Re-activation Ablaze – Sun conjunct Mercury Rx at 4:03 PM PT | 7:03 PM ET. This is the middle point of Mercury Retrograde, like the Full Moon phase, a full illumination of your learnings for this Mercury Retrograde.

You may feel a surge, an overload of information, thoughts, ideas, and understanding as your perspective becomes highlighted. Things may feel intense.

Time to pause and be present with any overwhelm that may occur. Time to be open to surprising insights. Take it all in.

Notice what has broken down in terms of your Aries themes around How you make decisions, how you face challenges, how you confront your fears. Are you allowing your genuine self to shine through in your leadership, or are you holding back due to fear or anxiety?

After today’s combustion, you will have left the eye of the storm to have a clearer understanding of what prevents you from reactivating without stress in your Work.

There is no need to “do” right now. Simply observe. Observation, while motionless, is deeply energetic.

How can you make space to take in all this new understanding to reflect without yet making a decision?

[Sacred Day] A perfect day for reflection, allowing insights to emerge naturally without rushing to judgment.

April 14, 2024 – April 20, 2024

It’s a pretty big week that ends with a bang! Start out with 2Q Moon in Cancer, this is a perfect time to get in tune with your needs and what you want to nourish to shift with the explosive Jupiter Uranus conjunction on Saturday. The middle of the week is packed with transits that will help you get clear and set intentions for the big leap.

April 15, 2024

04/15 – Act + nourish – 2Q Moon Cancer 26° at 12:!3 PM PT | 3:13 PM ET. It’s time to take action on your intentions! What came up for you during the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aries last week? Can you add in Cancerian action with nourishment and self care? So yes to naps for healing, being cozy at home for effectiveness, feelings for impact. Self care and holding space on the outside may not seem like productivity. But if these acts of nourishing replenish your ability to be more energized and effective, can you then see the value of that power nap!? Make space in your schedule for self care and home time so you can energetically, in alignment, act on your intentions.

[Sacred Day] What practice of self care helps move the needle forward?

04/15 – Safe to speak – Mercury Rx conjunct Chiron at 7:56 AM PT | 10:56 AM ET This day signals a profound moment for introspection and healing related to how you express your ideas and assert your individuality. This conjunction invites you to ponder deeply on the question, “Is it safe to speak?” Are my ideas, truth, thoughts safe to express aloud?

Activating the wounds you may carry around self-expression and the fear of vocalizing your thoughts. Aries, as a sign of bold action and courage, challenges us to confront these fears head-on. Yet, with Mercury in retrograde, the approach is more reflective, urging you to reconsider your methods of communication and the origins of your hesitations.

This period is about discovering the balance between courage and caution, learning that it’s not only safe to speak your ideas but essential for growth. It’s a time to heal the parts of yourself that have been silenced, to embrace the strength in vulnerability, and to step into your power as a communicator.

April 17, 2024

04/17 – Dynamic period of growth – Venus conjunct North Node at 12:00 PM PT | 3:00 PM ET. This conjunction offers a powerful cosmic alignment particularly in the realms of personal values, relationships, and leadership style. It’s a time when the Universe aligns to spotlight your path toward destiny. With Venus (love, values, and finance) energizing your Work and leadership qualities through the North Node (stretch potential, soul’s growth)

The emphasis here is the importance of personal relationships in your journey. The people you align with now, both professionally and personally, will play significant roles in your growth and success. These relationships are likely to be harmonious and beneficial, reflecting your own evolving values and ambitions. It’s also time to advocate for your worth and seek financial empowerment.

April 19, 2024

04/19 – Energy to re-connect – Venus conjunct Mercury Rx at 1:59 AM PT | 4:59 AM ET. This planetary duo in Aries invites you to consider, “How do I communicate to connect?” It challenges you to break through barriers of miscommunication or superficiality, encouraging a more heartfelt and authentic exchange. The key is to speak with conviction and sincerity. It’s a time to question and refine your approach to ensure your messages are not only heard but truly felt

During this period, it’s beneficial to reflect on past conversations and connections, learning from instances where maybe our rush to speak our mind may have overshadowed your desire to truly connect. By embracing the lessons from this transit you’re guided to a deeper understanding of how assertive, yet compassionate, communication can forge stronger bonds and foster mutual understanding and respect.

How can speaking with heartfelt sincerity and conviction enhance connection and mutual respect?

04/19 – Season of grounding and building – Sun enters Taurus at 7:00 AM PT | 10:00 AM ET. The Sun enters the beautiful and sensual sign of Taurus. For the next month, you get to play with the ideals of peace, prosperity and savor all Earthly senses. In your Work, it’s a time to look at your worth and abundance: what you value, how you add value and the promises you give yourself and your ideal customers. Remember, abundance and worthiness is not a destination — it’s a state of being, a feeling that vibrates out and attracts more abundance. Abundance can show up as your money earned or resources that come to you through other means. It doesn’t matter how you receive the physical resources that you need to thrive on Mother Earth. It’s your abundance. With Taurus season, one thing to be aware of is that the bounty that we get to create is to be shared and not to be hoarded. There is enough for everyone.

What do you add value through your business?

Happiest of solar return birthdays to the Taurus Luminaries!

Have your Sun in Taurus natally? If you have your natal Sun in Taurus you shine brightly when you are Working your grounded, embodied strengths. For you, taking your time is a super power. Prioritize opportunities in your Work that allow you to create peace, abundance, beauty, coziness for your surroundings and your body. If your body says yes, then it’s a go for you.

April 20, 2024

04/20 – Big Leaps – Jupiter conjunct Uranus at 7:27 PM PT | 10:27 PM ET. One of the biggest transits of the year, the meet up of giants, Jupiter and Uranus heralds in a new cycle of growth, progress, and revolution in the Earthly realms of Taurus.

Jupiter and Uranus meet up about once every 13 years sparking a massive shift in progress related to technology, energy/energetics/physics, space/aeronautic exploration, and everything connected to neuroscience and genetics.

It’s not that at this exact meetup, everything will change. This energy has been building up, and will continue to be in orb for at least a month. Just like a New Moon where the Sun and Moon meet up to create a new cycle of intention, this meetup of two giants sparks a new meta-cycle of meaning, purpose, and expansion (Jupiter) with awakening, change, and quantum leaping (Uranus).

On a global level, at previous Jupiter/Uranus conjunctions, there have been massive evolutionary leaps in the Communications via computer, Aero/Space travel, Genetics, and Physics (science of energy)

  • 1941 Taurus – invention of automatic computers, discovery of specific gene codes, aircraft technology of WWII
  • 1955 Cancer – Velcro, Domestic Microwave Oven, Wireless Remote Control, Birth of Steve Jobs
  • 1969 Libra – Apollo Missions to moon, first presentations of String Theory, First ARPANET messages sent between computers, first documented case of HIV/AIDS in the US – but unknown at the time
  • 1983 Sagittarius – ARPANET protocol officially becomes “Internet”, Mario Brothers first released, First official report of AIDS caused by HIV, First book of multiple intelligences, 3D printing patents, Kilauea starts erupting through 2018
  • 1997 Aquarius – Successful Cloning of a sheep, Steve Jobs returns to Apple, IBM Deep Blue AI wins chess against chess master, Google domain is registered
  • 2011 Aries/Pisces – First artificial organ transplant, SIRI added to iPhone, 7 billion world population, Kepler telescope found an exoplanet in the habitable zone, Discovery of uncharted hydrothermal vents in the Mid Atlantic Ridge, American Psychology associate confirms evidence of ESP, massive advances in electronics, medicine, genetics, climatology, robotics
  • 2024 Taurus – AI revolution? Energy as commerce? Biotech solutions to plastics? Water protection? Long Duration Energy Storage?

On a personal level, this expansion and breakthrough happens to your values, resources and inner sense of worthiness. We could all use an upgrade there! The thing to remember and claim is what is of value to you? Only you can determine that.

And if you’ve been crumbling under the pressure of not enoughness or comparison, this is the cycle breaking you’ve been dreaming about as you grow too big for your britches in all the right ways.

To use this energy with intention that can span your next 13 years, imagine how you want to accelerate your own growth and value.

It is a perfect time to dream big and take bold steps to exceed your expectations and breakthrough where you’ve felt stuck in place.

The sky gods are aligned so you can invest in what is valuable to you. For quick and lasting wins. For big and revolutionary wisdom. For reclaiming and rematriating Mother Earth for protection.

Remember, that revolution isn’t always about creating something new. Often it is returning to an old way and perceiving it in a new light.

Be sure, you’ll see Indigenous stewards reclaiming land and being recognized for the value and innovation of their ancient technologies. Be sure you’ll see yourself measuring value in terms of energetic capacity.

Be sure, if you intentionally choose your expansion and breakthrough, you will overcome obstacles and boldly go where you are destined to go.

  • What expectations are you open to exceeding?
  • What revolutions are you open to igniting?
  • What value will you start to measure?

Especially potent for Fixed and Earth signs.

[Power Day] A start to a massive shift.

April 21, 2024 – April 27, 2024

If you didn’t finish your transformation on the 20th, fear not, you get two more opportunities this week to shift, with the sun squaring Pluto and then a Scorpio full moon, both potent energies for you to purge and clear out anything residual. The universe really does have our backs and wants us to reach our highest and greatest potential.

April 21, 2024

04/21 – Powerful transformation needed – Sun square Pluto at 10:02 AM PT | 1:02 PM ET. Shortly after the Sun enters Taurus, they fixedly, stubbornly square off with Pluto. Outside influences and upsets may ask you to transform something about what you are here to do in your life and Work. There’s old patterns of doing things that no longer serve your ultimate vision that are supporting this shape shifting. Trust that you know what you are meant to change at this time. Especially after the insights of yesterday’s big Jupiter Uranus conjunction.

What deep shifts are being asked in your core doings of your Work?

Especially activating for fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius).

Sun Taurus square Pluto Aquarius 2°

April 23, 2024

04/23 – Regenerate Your Power- Full Moon Scorpio 4° at 4:49 PM PT | 7:49 PM ET. Scorpio Full Moons can be intense and heavy as all is illuminated in the ways you may be holding onto envy, jealousy, unmet expectations and even betrayal. Yes, indeed you have been harmed, but you now have the responsibility and power to purge yourself from this baggage to create space to accept and live into the now. Change and evolution is necessary for your spiritual growth. And this Scorpio Full Moon urges you to let go of the past so you can grow into your truth and power.

This year’s Scorpio Full Moon, is the first non eclipse moon in over 2 years. And YET there is still an intensity to this lunation because of a fixed t-square with Pluto. The Sun in Taurus, the Moon in Scorpio and Pluto in Aquarius. So much knowing AND yet, so much distrust of self. This is a rewarding challenge to overcome, learning to trust in your inner power, intuitive knowing and ability to transform. The rewards are abundant with Haumea, a Hawaiian asteroid goddess. She reminds you that you are infinitely creative time and time again. The trick is that you have to take this challenging quest.

April 25, 2024

04/25 – Leadership Reactivated – Mercury Retrograde ends at Aries 15°, 5:54 AM PT | 8:54 AM ET, stopping directly on the North Node in Aries. What a sign to wrap up this recalibration cycle. You’ve taken a deep dive into your core self, identity, and inherent leadership, all under the guiding light of your soul’s path. This journey was for you.

Bookended by the North Node, this cycle has encouraged you to confront and refine who you are, how you lead, and the courage at the heart of your being so you could leap onto your highest path.

This period, opened 3 weeks ago in the highly charged Eclipse portal, urged you to jump into your identity and leadership style, challenging you to lead with authenticity and embrace your vulnerabilities as assets.

What was re-activated in your leadership this cycle? How did this Mercury reboot help you recalibrate the way you regulate fear so you could jump into your true role, taking aligned risks and trusting yourself to regulate when faced with the unknown?

As Mercury traces its steps forward, attain, over the next few weeks, integrate your insights, lead with intention, be the hero that inspires change, advocate for what’s right, and step onto your souls path of luminary leadership.

April 28, 2024 – May 4, 2024

We enter the last week of April with a more gentle energy. Venus is a big contributor this week and she always makes things lovely. Use this week to integrate all you experienced this month. A great idea would be to process it all into your body with devotional movement, see Monday’s Mars conjunct Neptune for more insight.

April 28, 2024

04/28 – Devotional Action – Mars conjunct Neptune at 9:31 PM PT | 12:31 AM+1 ET. Whatever you take action on today needs to be a devotional experience. If you choose to move your body, do it as an offering to connect with your higher self. If you take lead or action in your Work, do it in alignment with your spiritual co-creators, source or the Universe. Mars, your ability to go after what you want, and Neptune, your spiritual, interconnected visions give us the energy to begin a new practice of devotional action. Both planets are squaring the moon, so use this devotional movement to process any frustrating emotions coming up. Practice some form of integrative, somatic, or spiritual movement work; from Yoga, sacred dance facilitators, Qigong, and beyond. Feel each action you take as dedication and devote yourself to creating magic in your everyday mundane tasks.

How can you dedicate your intentional action?

Especially inspiring for Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces)

April 29, 2024

04/29 – Creating Value – Venus enters Taurus at 4:31 AM PT | 7:31 AM ET. Venus enters her home sign of Taurus until May 23. Here she’s comfy, cozy and capable in her full power. Venus, your connection to the resources (yes, money) and people to thrive in our world, appreciates everything luxurious, delicious and sumptuous. She’s the ability to curate, appreciate and be gracious to these pleasures that amplifies Venus’ power to charm and attract.

While traveling through Taurus, she meets up with Uranus on May 18, building up to surprise breakthroughs in your connections and resourcing!

For the next few weeks while Venus is in Taurus, appreciate your physical resources by savoring each sense. What lights up your touch, smell, sound, taste and aesthetics? Embody the pleasure of what surrounds you to amp up this Venusian energy.

In your Work, notice the value you create every day, the value you offer to those that co-create and hire you, and the value that is created from the investments you make in your body and your environment.

As you tune into your aligned values, remember to appreciate and express gratitude. This energetic amplification allows you to increase your power of financial and people attraction. Purely by appreciation and enjoyment of what you already have.

What is your true value and how are you sharing it?

Have Venus in Taurus natally? If you have your natal Venus in Taurus you are an example of value and self love. You want to go deep with what you really care about in your business, and it shows how you care for others and make what you believe in a reality. It’s hard for you to harness the shadows when you deeply understand how the natural order of things on Earth brings so much abundance and joy. It’s easy for you to value beauty and evoke its impacts by being patient with how it creates results. You’re very grounded in what you believe in and want to celebrate it in the most graceful way possible. People are drawn to you for how you add value and hone in on your own. When you’re creating a life you really believe in, you radiate rootedness, security, and pleasure harnessed in a constructive format. In your Work, remember you’re a person that can be a stabilizing force for so many when you honor yourself above all. You’re the kind of leader whose slow but steady approach allow others to value patience, quality and effort that requires time.

April 30, 2024

04/30 – Powerful Magnetism – Venus square Pluto at 9:30 PM PT | 12:30 AM+1 ET. Harness the energy of this transit, a few days before and after the exact meeting to reveal magnetism that draws in your soul people, resources or even opportunities. It’s the perfect time for the creative tension of Venus (your connection and attraction) and Pluto (intense transformation). In this tension outward sparks could catalyze change that maybe you were not yet ready to face, but are now being asked to. Face any challenge with your heart first. The more you can be true to yourself and your heart, you will always persevere. Vulnerability is your key to emotional magnetism and authentic attraction. What can you reveal about yourself that you’ve been hiding? What can you ask of others to gain clarity versus assume?

How are you harnessing your deep emotional magnetism?

[Sacred Day] A great day to rest to avoid burnout

Especially arousing for Fixed signs (Leo, Aquarius, Taurus, Scorpio).

04/30 – All the force and drive, full speed ahead – Mars enters Aries at 8:33 AM PT | 11:33 AM ET. Now through June 8, Mars will return to his home sign of Aries where he is full powered in all his physical vitality. Mars is the motivator; your ability to have physical energy and drive to trailblaze. Mars likes to be the best, the first, and the fastest. He can bring natural leadership energy in your Work if Mars energy can be focused in considerate ways. Remember that you get to choose how to harness this energy towards its highest elevation. And there will be ample energy for you to practice this over the coming weeks.
Keep an eye on yourself during this time and don’t make too many impulse decisions.

Mars energy requires you to channel it constructively:

  • Take action on what YOU want.
  • Notice anxiety and channel it into excitement.
  • Turn frustration into motivation.
  • Alchemize anger into sacred rage that puts up your boundaries once and for all.

How will you make a choice to maximize your full power and leadership?

Have Mars in Aries natally? If you have your natal Mars in its home sign of Aries you are a fire starter, an inspiration, the candle that can ignite many others into taking their action too. It’s hard for you to pump the brakes when you’re excited to check in with the collective’s response, though. Sometimes you get ahead of yourself and others get overwhelmed trying to keep up. But this does not have to be seen as a negative thing — many crave someone to be on the go go go like you with their drive. It’s easy for you to take action on your fiery impulses without giving things a double think. You’re so open to change that you initiate it quite practically when given the chance. People are drawn to you for your spunky vitality and drive to do things. They want to get the same itch! This makes you a great example of how to really make the most of the firestarter Aries energy. In your Work, harness your assertive nature and ability to get things done with all of the motivation that’s needed within. You want to seize the day; and it wants to be seized by you!
