April 2022 is perhaps the most anticipated month of the year. That’s of course, because Jupiter, the great benefic, joins Neptune in the sign of Pisces.
This is a unique event: Jupiter-Neptune conjunctions happen only once every 13 years, and Jupiter-Neptune conjunctions happen in Pisces only every 200 years or so on average.
What makes this conjunction so special is that Pisces is the ruling sign of both Jupiter (traditional ruler) and Neptune (modern ruler). So we have both rules of Pisces coming together in a once-in-a-lifetime, magical astrological event.
And what makes April even more special, is that Venus joins in during the last week of April. Talk about magic 😉
Keep in mind that conjunctions (just like New Moons) are not necessarily times when things happen – it’s when new seeds are planted.
So instead of waiting for something to ‘happen’ pay attention to what’s initiating, to what’s shifting, to what’s coming into existence. Pay attention to subtle shifts. Neptune transits are not as obvious as Saturn, Uranus or Pluto transits for example, but they nevertheless shape and change us in profound ways.
April is also when the Eclipse season starts. On April 30h, we have an incredible Uranus-flavored Solar Eclipse in Taurus. This is perhaps the most important New Moon and Eclipse of the year and will come with unexpected changes and opportunities.
The Jupiter-Neptune conjunction and the eclipse promise a month to remember. While changes can sometimes be destabilizing, the changes we will be witnessing in April are those types of changes that will uplevel our lives in ways we can’t even imagine yet.
Let’s have a look at the most important transits of the month:
April 3rd, 2022 – Mercury Conjunct Sun And Chiron In Aries
On April 3rd, Mercury is conjunct the Sun, so we are in the “Full Moon” phase of the current Mercury cycle. To make things interesting, Chiron is also conjunct Sun and Mercury.
Pay attention to news, thoughts, insights and revelations. This is our opportunity to gain awareness of something very important about yourself – and re-write that pattern so you can live a more authentic, wholesome life.
April 5th, 2022 – Venus Enters Pisces
On April 5th, Venus leaves Aquarius and enters Pisces. Venus loves Pisces – Pisces is the sign of Venus’ exaltation after all.
In the last few weeks, Venus was not at her best. It is not that she doesn’t like being in Aquarius, but this time she shared the sign with Saturn, who made her feel a bit too serious for her liking.
Not anymore! In Pisces, with the support of Jupiter and Nepute, Venus will have a blast! And so will you. This is your time to connect with your heart and let it whisper its truth.
April 5th, 2022 – Mars Conjunct Saturn
April is a truly magical month, but on April 5th it may not feel this way. On April 5th, Mars is conjunct Saturn at 23° Aquarius.
Saturn is a very serious planet, and whenever Saturn is conjunct a personal planet, we are reminded of our responsibilities.
Mars wants to act NOW, but Saturn wants to do things LATER – not because he’s lazy (on the contrary) but because he wants to think things through and make sure something of lasting value is built.
The Mars-Saturn conjunction may feel very frustrating – but it will also give us that extra push and determination to get things done, by finding a good compromise between impulse-driven action and practicality.
April 11th, 2022 – Mercury Enters Taurus
After a speedy drive through Aries, Mercury enters Taurus, changing the Ferrari for a Bentley. Yes, he’ll still get you to the destination, but instead of getting dopamine hits from speeding, he’ll now get to enjoy the leather couch… and the box of chocolates in the glove compartment.
April 12th, 2022 – Jupiter Conjunct Neptune
Today is the day. On April 12th, Jupiter and Neptune meet at 24° Pisces.
Jupiter conjunct Neptune in Pisces has the power to make our dreams come true and to awaken us to the simplest truth of life: that there is magic everywhere. I will write a detailed report for this exquisite event – stay tuned!
April 15th, 2022 – Mars Enters Pisces
Just when you thought things can’t get more morphy and wavy, Mars enters Pisces. Mars is like a chameleon in Pisces – he’s still doing the Mars thing – he still takes action, but in a Piscean way.
This means he will act according to circumstances. It means he can easily change his mind, or do one thing now, and another thing later.
Is not that he’s flaky, but from the Piscean angle he has perspective – he can see how everything is connected… how the flap of the butterfly’s wings can cause a tornado.
April 16th, 2022 – Full Moon In Libra
On April 16th, we have a Full Moon at 26° Libra. The Full Moon is square Pluto in Capricorn and trine Mars and Saturn.
Every Full Moon in Libra is an opportunity to put ourselves into other people’s shoes and understand where they’re coming from.
This Full Moon in Libra will not only help us have better relationships, but will also help us understand ourselves better – understand how we are unconsciously projecting some of our qualities onto others.
With Pluto, Saturn and Mars engaged, there is a strong pull to do the work – even if that means having some serious conversations or taking an ego blow here and there.
April 18th, 2022 – Mercury Conjunct Uranus
On April 18th, 2022, Mercury conjuncts Uranus at 13° Taurus and our antennas are up! Mercury-Uranus aspects are those “lightbulb moments”. Something becomes clear – crystal clear. There’s nothing ambiguous about Taurus. What you see is what you get.
April 27th-30th, 2022 – Venus Conjunct Jupiter And Neptune
On April 27th, Venus conjuncts Neptune at 24° Pisces, and 3 days later Jupiter, at 27° Pisces for a few days of magic.
Jupiter and Neptune are collective planets. Venus is a personal planet. If the influence of the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction has been somewhat abstract, this is your opportunity to understand what it means for you.
With Jupiter’s help, Venus will translate Neptune’s foggy messages, and make the intangible, tangible. Listen to your heart – it will give you all the answers.
This is not a Uranian lightbulb moment of clarity – this is a deep knowing of what’s right, of what makes you truly happy, what kind of person you want to be, and what kind of life you want to live going forward.
April 29th, 2022 – Mercury Enters Gemini
On April 29th, 2022 Mercury leaves the Taurus Bentley for a Gemini bicycle. His goal now is to be as flexible and as agile as possible.
On a bike, he can beat traffic and sneak between other cars, and reach his destination faster. Or, he can stop because he’s seen a friend he hasn’t seen in ages. Or, he can change destination altogether because he got a phone call and something more important popped up.
Mercury in Gemini is a great transit for all of us – Mercury is in its home sign in Gemini. When Mercury is in Gemini, we can see things for what they are, without bias or misjudgement, and seize opportunities better. Our mind becomes more agile, our communication more fluent, and our conversations more enjoyable.
April 30th, 2022 – Solar Eclipse In Taurus
On April 30th, we have a North Node Solar Eclipse at 10° Taurus.
There are so many incredible astrological line-ups at this Eclipse that I don’t even know where to start: I’ll just mention that this is a North Node eclipse conjunct Uranus, and that the ruler of the Eclipse, Venus, is conjunct Jupiter.
