In the UK, we’ve recently had a few days of beautiful spring sunshine which tells us that better weather is on the way.

In astrology, the Sun is now completing one whole cycle of the zodiac and on March 20th 2014 the Sun returns again to 0 Aries, the first point of the zodiac. This year, the ingress of the Sun into Aries takes place at 16:57 GMT on the 20th.

This coincides with the Spring Equinox in the northern hemisphere and it’s a brilliant time to make a fresh start and put some energy and zing into your everyday routine. If your New Year resolutions came to naught, here’s a chance to start over and begin again.

Everything’s revving up in my world this month and suddenly I’m crazy busy with writing contracts. I will still be offering personal astrology consultations this month and next but not as many. So do book in early if you’re at a crossroads or you would like an astrological perspective on who you are and where you’re heading in life.

Here are a couple of articles/projects I’ve been working on recently. I now have an About Me page and last week I was the guest writer for Biddytarot looking at how you can use astrology and tarot together to give a fresh perspective and a deeper insight. Here’s the link if you haven’t already seen it: http://www.biddytarot.com/astrology-and-missing-suits/

Make the most of this exciting time of year that represents new growth as flowers begin to bud and happy lambs do a little jump for joy.

The Cardinal Grand Cross: Do You Have A Cross To Bear?

Cardinal Grand CrossThis Cardinal Grand Cross weekend has been talked about for months but as with most major planetary events that are feared or generate a lot of interest, you only know what they’re about once you’re living them.

A Grand Cross looks very much like it sounds, four planets which literally make the sign of the + (cross) in an astrology chart. Two sets of planets face one another from opposite signs and all four planets are either square to or opposite one of the other planets.

I don’t have this configuration in my own birth chart but I know a fair few people who do and it’s not always an easy signature in a birth chart. It can indicate a burden that doesn’t go away quickly and it often helps to ask a client ‘what cross do you bear?” to initiate a conversation about this major planetary pattern.

Aries MandalaAries (21 March-19 April)

Are you ready for a big month, Aries, a roller-coaster ride through life? Part of you is probably shouting ‘oh yeah’ whilst another part of you wants to run and hide. The truth is that everything feels intensified this month and the best way to deal with this is to confront what’s going on rather than pull the duvet over your head.

However, choose your battles wisely and avoid unnecessary confrontation. Fight for your rights and defend other peoples’ rights but don’t get involved in road rage, for example. Let’s have a closer look at what’s going on and how you can not only survive but thrive this April.

Taurus MandalaTaurus (20 April-20 May)

Your ruler Venus moves into romantic Pisces on the 5th where she remains throughout April. This is important for you as Venus is in good shape this month and even though changes are imminent and April’s stars suggest disruption, you can help.

In Pisces, Venus is caring, kind and sensitive. Venus rules friendship, group associations and the wider social network that encompasses environmental and world concerns. Plus Venus makes helpful aspects to other planets so reach out to others, help a friend, help those in need and do your bit.

Gemini MandalaGemini (21 May-20 June)

April’s going to be quite a month and you’re in the midst of the action. There’s a Cardinal Grand Cross in the heavens which is exact over the Easter weekend but is also triggered early in the month and the week after Easter. Plus most importantly for you, your planet Mercury is in the mix from the 14th-16th so highlight these few days in your diary.

A Grand Cross has four planets squaring up to one another so different people with different agendas or one area of life blocking another area of life. The cardinal signs are Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn, the leaders of the zodiac. This is a conflict aspect pattern and sometimes it feels as if the only way out of a tricky situation is to bash your way through or to confront others. This is a volatile energy, however, and arguments could quickly get out of hand.

Virgo Monthly Stars April 2014

Virgo MandalaVirgo (23 August-22 September)

It’s a big month in the heavens with a Cardinal Grand Cross dominating the party and your planet Mercury in the thick of the action. In brief, a Grand Cross involves four planets squaring up to one another suggesting that different people have different agendas and that trying to get things straight in life is more of a challenge as the scales continually tip in and out of alignment.

The cardinal signs are Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn, the leaders of the zodiac. Your ruler Mercury is in Aries from the 7th-23rd and this turns your attention towards joint finances and the money you share with other people plus all financial transactions. This may include mortgages, insurances, savings and debts and/or an inheritance.

Libra Monthly Stars April 2014

Libra MandalaLibra (23 September-23 October)

This is a big month in the heavens and you need to negotiate your way carefully through life as a lot of the big areas are interlinked. This means that what happens in one area of your life has a knock-on effect in another and it helps to keep tabs on the bigger picture and look at what’s most important to you and to know where your priorities lie.

Mars is currently retrograde or on go slow in your sign of Libra so you may not be clear about what you want right now. Mars is the planet of action and energy and it’s held back at the moment suggesting that you have to be more patient than usual and take your time especially with regard to your personal goals.
