The significance of this waning cycle is a strange mix of beginnings and returns. It may feel as though you are making a fresh start on some level, while multiple experiences make you feel otherwise. The pull, the desire for something new will be strong, yet with four of the nine planets retrograde (six counting the nodes), returns and retracing your steps will be forced and obligatory.
Venus in Aries
On April 24th at 23:02, Venus moves from its harmonious sign of exaltation, where it received no gaze from the other planets, and crosses the tricky gandanta (gap) into the first sign of the zodiac, Aries. This is a challenging gap because of the endings and beginnings that it provokes, while also being the change between a water sign and fire sign. Inner polarities may intensify as a result. What are you identifying within your relationships, finances, comfort and creativity?
Just as Mercury moves to the edge of Aries, it begins to retrace its steps. Mercury has been transiting this fiery and aggressive sign since April 2nd. This mental body cycle has provoked the mind to feel fragile and agitated at times. A release process is being instigated. Notice where necessary clean-up and final release must take place. Honor this process of endings and beginnings.

Do not use these horoscopes with your Western sign (Tropical) as there is likely no correlation. These horoscopes are meant to be used as a broad overview of the current transits and obviously do not address the specifics of an individual’s unique chart.
Aries: Your power is captivating- even to you! You are in an attractive cycle, work it like bees to honey. There are parts of you saying no to the pleasure, ease and increases. It's vital that you look at these limiting beliefs within, in order to maximize the potency of this time.
Taurus: Your inner Sun is being asked to bow down and renounce its thrown. As challenging as this may feel, there is great opportunity in the discomfort. Your ego is getting an overhaul in the process and a certain liberation is taking place. Surrender to the moments of release and letting go.
Gemini: Bad habits are your starting point. Where do you continue to struggle, stay in the dark and use shadow as your vice? Part of you wears your suffering as a badge, the other part of you says it wants liberation, freedom, release. There can be no ease without harmony.
Cancer: There is a certain strength, power and brilliance showing up in your work right now. Get seen, noticed and allow people hear your message. Parts of you are saying yes to more power and pleasure, more nourishment and money in life. It's time to find harmony between the yes and the no.
Leo: Polarities are working their magic on you as challenges give rise to clarity within. When you can address the conflicts within you directly, deep inner change can begin. These polarities effect your sense of strength and power, your heart wisdom and ability to give and receive love.
Virgo: Continue to shine the light on your inner darkness. Keep finding all those places where you are suppressing your strength, power and greatness. This requires consistent, courageous steps and a willingness to stay true to your course of action.
Libra: Relationships are a powerful mirror for you right now. They are showing you challenges and difficulties, places that make you feel uncomfortable in your power and strength. Are you in right-relationship with your power? Does it feel harmonious and peaceful when you use it?
Scorpio: Deep healing can take place if you allow yourself to re-trace some old, familiar steps. Cover the territory of your heart with new creativity, new courage. Step into your warrior spirit and honor your inner strength. There are parts of you that still don't trust or accept your inner power.
Sagittarius: You are working intimately with power and strength right now. Learning how to step into empowerment more clearly, while figuring out how to use this power to move you forward. Your gut intelligence is a vital part of this process. Listen carefully to the messages arriving within.
Capricorn: Your heart is teaming with power and potential. Passion and inner fires are being stoked. Reside and linger in this place of warmth and strength. Your power comes from within. Can you find its source? Deepen your relationship with this inner grounding force.
Aquarius: Your awakening continues to take shape from head to toe. Creative courage is taking place, but requires your diligent action steps and some re-programming on your part. Start with your mind and re-pattern from inside to outside. This will pave the way for new possibilities.
Pisces: Nourishment continues to play a key role in your path right now. With Venus newly in your 2nd house, conjunct exalted Sun and Mercury, watch for resistance, struggle and conflict with your needs. Part of you desires more, but part of you is saying no simultaneously.
