Astrology for Tuesday, April 6
There is a large contingent of planets in Aries - Mercury, Chiron, the Sun, the asteroids Chiron and Ceres, Venus, and the dwarf planet Eris. The archetypal energy is pioneering, entrepreneurial. The ruler of Aries is Mars, the God of War. A lot of energy is bound up in standing up for who you are. And doing - Aries likes to act.
Aries is ruled by Mars. Currently, Mars is in Gemini, very near the north node of the moon. There is a longing to act, to move forward in accord with science and logic. It also shows the importance of a "war with words" - the filibuster. So much hinges on passing that obstacle. If the filibuster remain as is, the GOP minority can bring any move toward the future to a standstill..
Mars/North Node in Gemini is trine Jupiter, Moon and Saturn in Aquarius, a humanitarian and democratic sign. The legacy of the country's wounds are ready to be lanced and healed - at least as much as we are ready for now!
The will of the people, symbolized by the Moon in Aquarius, is ready to move in a new direction. Saturn, the builder, is in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus, the sign of building. The infrastructure plan, as well as easing the restrictive voting bills launched by the GOP in 43 states, are popular with the people. The GOP, rather than act in accord with these popular policies, chooses to try to suppress the vote.
Pluto is still in Capricorn - showing how deeply the powers that be need to be transformed. It is moment of defining identity - who will we choose to be? The planets in Aries are a great place to begin that work.
