This Week's Intention: Start something and go for the gold!
On Monday, the week begins with four planets in Aries, just after the new Moon. Aries helps us usher in newness and beginnings as well as fresh starts. Moon transits Krittika nakshatra, offering purification and transformation. What are you starting and what are you leaving behind? Moon is now waxing, helping us to ripen the potency of this time so it can be illuminated in the coming cycle.
As Moon shifts into Taurus (joining Venus here) mid morning, it becomes exalted- in it's most expansive and expressive placement. Monday and Tuesday are extremely potent!
Akshaya Tritiya, the day of lasting achievement, begins late evening on Monday, April 20th and continues through Tuesday morning, April 21st. It is the only day of the year where the Sun and Moon are both exalted while Moon is in Rohini nakshatra and in the third tithi, tritiya. This is an excellent time to start something new and take a powerful action step forward! In the Vedic tradition, it is said that all actions will be fruitful on this day.
Wednesday begins with the Moon moving through the final portion of Taurus in Mrigashirsha nakshatra. Our creativity and nourishment begins to branch out. Expand your reach, connect and create in order to thrive more fully. Your action steps will determine the outcome of this. As Moon shifts into Gemini midday, communication and imagination are vital resources.

Power and potency arrive Thursday morning. Are you cultivating presence with your emotions or getting knocked down by them? As Moon moves through Ardra nakshatra today, it is important to work consciously with the emotional body- especially anger. Can you find the passion without getting burned by the flames?
Nourishment, support and increased knowledge come with Punarvasu nakshatra and its ruling deity, Aditi, on Friday. The Mother of all Goodness arrives with awakening and unification if we choose to accept her benevolence and expansion. To soften our experience, Moon shifts into its own sign Cancer, joining exalted Jupiter here, early in the evening. This theme of nourishment and support carries us through the weekend. Tend to your heart, home and emotional wisdom, let in the good feelings and let go of the discomfort.
Just as Saturday arrives, Moon shifts into Pushya nakshatra and the theme of nourishment intensifies. How are you getting your needs met? What is working? What isn't? Make sure self care is a top priority today. Spend time with water, earth and give special attention to you heart and home.
Early morning Sunday, Moon enters Ashlesha nakshatra and conjuncts Jupiter closely. This nakshatra is ruled by Sarpa, the mystical serpent, as well as the planet Mercury. Our mental body may spark extra emotions today so navigate your inner waters consciously. As Mercury becomes sandhi and nears the edge of Aries, extra attention to the mental/emotional balance is paramount.
Mercury moves to Taurus at 23:15 PDT, April 26th, joining Venus here in its own sign. Imaginal Mercury and Creative Venus do quite well together and invite inspiration and increased ideas to appear. We don't have to act upon every idea, but pay special attention in the coming weeks to those ideas that are worth activating. Once Venus moves to Gemini on May 2nd, these transits offer an exchange of signs (Venus rules Taurus and Mercury rules Gemini). Extra creativity is available to us and our relationships will be an important part of the creative process. Collaborate, co-create and communicate effectively what you need. Once Mars moves into Taurus on May 3rd, action steps become more important. Use this time to manifest your desires and put action behind them. Get what you want by saying what you mean and meaning what you say; then take it forth.
