Astrological Context, Week of April 15, 2024

(All times Eastern)

Remember that these aspects (aside from entry into new signs) will be in effect a few days before and a few days after the exact dates listed here. So keep this in mind when reading the daily updates this week.

The week is “quiet(ish)” for planetary action, but the weekend heats up with a lot going on at once. On Friday, Mercury (still retrograde) conjoins Venus. This can be an overwhelming sense of thought and ideas around relationships, and a strong urge to DO something about them. With Venus in Aries, where she’s at her most un-Venus-like, go carefully now and be careful not to take on an aggressive edge.

Also on Friday, at 9:59am, the Sun enters Taurus, heralding the middle month of the Spring. This is the most iconic part of the season, when new life and green things firmly reestablish themselves for the year. Energy settles down a bit (Taurus is a fixed sign) and finding direction may be a little easier.

The same day, Mars sextiles Jupiter and then Uranus. This can bring a lot of high energy to the end of the week, and it’s a good time to make changes that aren’t too radical.

On Saturday, Jupiter conjoins Uranus in Taurus. These two planets urge movement and change, while Taurus is the most unchanging sign of the zodiac. This creates some tension. If you have planets or sensitive points here at ~22 Taurus/Scorpio (and to a lesser extent Aquarius/Leo), life may feel a bit like a roller coaster now. It could be a little hard to find a place to grab on while the seeming roller coaster ride takes you along.

On Sunday, the Sun squares Pluto, which is likely to continue the feelings of instability and shifting grounds for a few more days.
