Hidden Insights: Astrology for the week of 14 April 2019

Hidden Insights notes the tone this week is set on Sunday, 14 April, with the Sun making a lovely trine to Jupiter, and Venus exaggerating the power of Pluto. The expansive energy of Jupiter is magnified, fortifying our physical bodies, and puts most of the world in an optimistic mood. As Venus makes a sextile to Pluto, a love of power is promised, and many will feel an overwhelming sensation of control over their destiny. Consequently, we may see a number of egos inflated. This will be particularly true of Aries, Sagittarius, and Capricorn.

On Monday, Venus makes her second aspect of the week as she squares Jupiter. Similarly to the first two aspects of the week, this alignment can create an inflated sense of self. Although many will feel they can accomplish anything, there is the danger of taking on more than can be handled. For most of the world, this week will test our capability of moderation. Essentially, self-discipline is thrown out the window, and if we are not careful, overindulgence will be our own worst enemy.

Mercury changes signs this week and moves into Aries on Wednesday. Previously, Mercury had been in subtle Pisces, allowing the world to reflect and follow their intuition. Now, in the cardinal fire sign, words become harsh, direct, and filled with passion. As minds race and thoughts fly, it may be difficult for people to focus on one task too long, so it is not an ideal time to finish projects. It is, however, a fantastic period to initiate new goals and start new plans of action. It is always important to remember that travel becomes erratic during this period, and more instances of road rage and speeding accidents occur. Be alert and remain focused while travelling the next 4 weeks.

Astro Homework:

This week’s homework assignment focuses on the power of Friday’s Full Moon in Libra. This is the second Full Moon in Libra this year, with the first occurring on March 20th. The first Moon brought a focus on our interpersonal relationships, and for many, this was a time to affirm love. This Moon is in the last degree of Libra, which is known as a challenging degree.

For many, this lunation may bring about the fall of a romantic relationship, or friendship, due to ego conflicts and pride. Your assignment is to focus this energy on repairing a broken or strained relationship. The Moon in Libra is fond of pink and blue. Burn candles these colours to alleviate and appease the tension in the heavens.
