There are some significant energy shifts in the last two weeks of April, starting with Mercury finally free from his shadow and entering Aries today, Tuesday, April 16, energizing a spirit of initiation and a desire to express what you want with more flair and fire. Action Mars is in the sign of Gemini, which Mercury rules, adding a bit more heat to your communications so be mindful of how your words will be received. Fortunately, these planets are in mutual reception.

A mutual reception is when two planets are in each other’s signs of rulership. Whenever planets are in mutual reception, they provide the native with additional forces to overcome difficulties that present themselves during transits affecting their signs and houses.
A Full Moon follows at the very last degree of Libra on Friday, April 19, at 4:12 am pacific, bringing dynamics in key relationships to a head. Emotions will be running wild between now and then, especially if you are not quite sure how someone is feeling or whose side they are on. It will be essential to stay as balanced and responsive as you can, as opposed to reactive and unruly, if you want things to turn our favorably.
Venus, the ruler for Libra, finishes her tour in idealistic Pisces and enters action-driven Aries the following day, Saturday, April 20, putting that dream into action. Speak up and take bold steps, so you (as well as they), know where you stand!
