Woohoo! Lovely Venus Exalted in Pisces 4/15 - 5/10.

Libra and Taurus rising, this is the once a year Venus transit where your chart ruler Venus is in its SUPER happy and supportive sign!

Pisces is the sign connected to recycling, spirituality, the Divine, being of service to others, and unconditional love.

Creative Libra will love this Venus in Pisces transit! Just be sure not to give too much in the process. Taurus rising, this is your time to connect to spiritual groups, and build your wealth from your work!

One watch-out with this transit is sweets! Venus in Pisces loves chocolate and sugar, especially while moving through Pisces for Libra, Aries and Virgo rising.

Bottom Line: Eat Chocolate (but not too much!). Pray. Love!

Now will be perfect timing to review dates and mark your calendars using the details by rising sign given in the Jupiter retrograde forecast..

Jupiter is in a bit of a quandary for the next few days as it turns retrograde and crosses the boundary from fire, back into water. Be sure to check what might be coming up for your rising sign over the next few months.

Jupiter is the wisdom guide, spiritual teacher and upholder of dharma and law! This annual four month retrograde phase will offer an opportunity to review and reassess these important qualities and values in life. Mainly as they relate to Scorpio and the house that Scorpio rules in your horoscope.

I can take you through a detailed Jupiter retrograde in Scorpio journey as it influences your birth chart and life experience, for this important Jupiter phase; schedule a consult here.

Sagittarius and Pisces, since Jupiter is your all important chart ruler, pay close attention to the dates and major themes in the Jupiter in Scorpio article! Now through November is the last chance we will have to address the symbolism and lessons of Jupiter in Scorpio for the next 11 years!

Bottom Line: Contemplate. Revise Values. Connect to the teachings of the deep waters of esoteric Scorpio!

Creative Mercury in Pisces: 4/11 - 5/3

Through April 15, Mercury is direct and moving forward in the same territory it visited during the retrograde phase.

What came up for you during the last Mercury retrograde phase?

Since Mercury is finally moving on down the road, it is an excellent time to reflect on the Mercury retrograde forecast and see what else came up for you to revise

Now is the time to put your carefully thought out plans into place!

Analytical Mercury will also be in Pisces for the next three weeks starting April 11, around 5pm PDT. Mercury in Pisces is fantastic for creative energies, but not so much for the details!

Those who are ruled by Mercury, be particularly mindful during the next three weeks. Gemini rising, this may manifest in the area of life associate with work; be sure to double check all of the fine print! Virgo rising; do a reality check around relationships and communication during this time, as your thoughts may be floating adrift in the mystical waters of Pisces. (Regarding thinking, this can actually apply to all signs!)

The combination of Venus and Mercury in Pisces will be quite extraordinary. These two will be in close collaboration for the last two weeks of April. Creatives, tap into the dynamic creative combo of this once a year Mercury/Venus in Pisces transit!

Bottom Line: Write. Create. Dream - just be sure to keep your feet on the ground!

Huge thanks to everyone who has visited my new website and shared feedback with me! I appreciate so much you taking time to write me a quick note. Please do not hesitate to let me know what is NOT working too! Or things you would like to see more of on the site.

It is a work in progress...I will be adding some new offerings and more astrology information as time goes on and my schedule permits.

I added all of my forecasts to the blog page so you don't have to hunt for old emails with important dates, horoscopes and planetary forecast info. This will be ongoing so you have a central location to refer back to for dates, if you like.

If you haven't checked out my new handwritten birth chart analysis reports, you may want to have a look! It is a great way to dip your toes into Vedic astrology if you have not ever had a reading, or if you just want to have some very focused info about your rising sign, Moon, Sun sign and more.

Last but not least, I would love to read for you! There are many more planetary shifts coming (those planets just keep on turning!!!!) this year and an astrological tune-up/tune-in can be super supportive regarding your life/career/relationship/health goals for the balance of 2019.

You can schedule a consultation with me here.
