Astrological Context, Week of April 3, 2023

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.

On Monday just after noon, Mercury enters Taurus. This is good for slow investigation and thoughtfulness, as opposed to lightning-fast inspiration and brilliance. It’s excellent for planning, but runs the danger of getting stuck in old ways of thinking, so beware.

As Mercury enters Taurus, they square Pluto, which can upset the balance of thoughts and emotions, especially around issues of control and power. We often see news items at this kind of aspect that involve public figures changing their minds, or switching sides in an open argument or debate.

The rest of the week is marked by a series of gentle sextiles. On Wednesday, Mercury sextiles Saturn, providing a solid engine-like force to get things done if we focus on it.

On Friday, Venus sextiles Neptune, offering a dream-like experience of relationships without the deception that often comes with the hard aspects between these two. And on Saturday, Mercury sextiles Mars, again, ginning up some really good energy for deep thought and focus.
