April 22, 2019 Horoscope – Taurus season starts

5:46pm CST April 22, 2019

Thought I’d do a little reading for tonight since it just started pouring rain out of the blue. Here is the chart for the moment. The moon is in Sagittarius now next to retrograde Jupiter. It’s a time for retrospection after the intense full moon energy. Hopefully everyone is catching up on sleep and feeling good. We are transitioning into Taurus right now and are at the early degrees. There has been a lot of energy like this lately with Uranus transitioning back and forth between Aries and Taurus. Uranus is the planet of unexpected events and also of technology. The ways we use technology might be changing a lot for us all right now. Less about selfies and people trying to be Instafamous and more about using the internet as a tool to create a better life. Aries season is a time of selfish wants. It’s when we define what we want and are going to do for the coming year. If this requires any battles, we fight them. Going into Taurus is more about the senses. It’s about comfort and nourishing ourselves. It’s about nourishing the sentiments that started us off into the astrological year during Aries time (late March to early April). Right now Chiron is in Aries. Chiron is the wounded healer. There may be flair ups right now, and there may have been in the last month or so, regarding wounds that you endured that were not dealt with. You may have found yourself seeking out revenge or flying off the handle, even if this isn’t your true nature or usual way of course. Aries ruling planet, Mars, is in Gemini (the planet of communication ruled by Mercury). I was reading about alchemy last night and learned that alchemical reactions were thought to involve Mercury uniting salt with sulfur in all incarnations. Mercury was the spirit. Not necessarily Mercury as is used in thermometers but an ethereal substance. Mercury is the tie that binds. In Mythology, Mercury is both male and female. It is the tie that binds masculine with feminine to create. So when Mars is in Gemini I think of warring communication. Violent polarity with the masculine trying to overtake the feminine. I think that the proximity of Venus conjunct Chiron (wounded healer) right now shows that those who have been wounded are finding their footing going into Taurus season. The male energy of the sun is now residing in a feminine part of the heavens (Taurus) and she’s crying.
