Astrological forecast April 2020
Welcome in April 2020!
The two biggest astrological events of April 2020 are retrograde Pluto in Capricorn and the first Jupiter/Pluto conjunction of 2020 and that only happens once every thirteen years!
The beginning of 2020 was marked by the exact Saturn-Pluto conjunction in the cardinal sign of Capricorn of January 12th, 2020. This historic conjunction represented the beginning of both the destruction and reconstruction of all social structures we have built.
On January 11th, 2020 Uranus in Taurus turned direct in Taurus (our planet Earth) and this amplified the radical transformative effect of this historical conjunction.
While this manifested high in the heavenly sky, the Coronavirus spread from China around the world.
The Full Supermoon in Virgo of March 9th, 2020 was conjunct Denebola (catastrophes) opposed Neptune (contamination) and trine Jupiter (spread) and was the breeding ground for the pandemic.
The Great Benefactor Jupiter has been traveling through Capricorn since December 2nd, 2020 and will join Pluto on April 4th, 2020. At the beginning of April 2020, the increasing influence of this exact transforming energy gives a huge boost of strength and development and a combination of ideas and possibilities.
On June 30th, 2020 there will be a second conjunction and on November 12th, 2020, a third exact conjunction will take place between these two planetary giants.
The conjunction of Pluto and Jupiter at 24° in Capricorn conjunct the Southern Node from April 4th, 2020 is current until June 30, 2020 and can be seen as a big detox for the world, a great karmic cleansing towards the future. Mother Earth needs a time-out.
Major cleaning is accompanied with chaos. However, new life can arise from chaos.
Themes such as leadership, economic recession and recovery, sustainability, political and economic power issues, dealing with our natural resources, with investments, debt and credit, as well as austerity and scarcity are on the agenda in April 2020.
The social and economic consequences of the worldwide Corona pandemic are major.
The consequences of the pandemic will eventually lead to new, experimental and more just economic and social systems, based on completely new cultural, educational, business and political organizational structures, but give us an opportunity to turn things around for the better.
Hopefully the New Moon at 02°05 in Gemini on May 22nd, 2020 heralds the end of the pandemic, but it looks like social life will not be balanced again until the end of 2020.
However, it will take until 2026 for the global economy to recover.
The planetary message of Jupiter always has to do with faith and vision, but now it is about earthly spirituality, including the relationship between body and mind. In Capricorn, Jupiter is grounded and Jupiter's cosmic message is both practical and useful.
There is also hope through the influence of Jupiter in earthly Capricorn, for the Great Benefactor restores the karmic balance of power in the world. Integrity, personal ethics and correct action will be the best way to ensure medium and long term goals.
Saturn has now temporarily left Earthly Capricorn and entered the skies of Aquarius.
(Note: Saturn returns to Capricorn from August 2020 through mid-December 2020 due to retrograde effect). Aquarius wants to go into the future and through the influence of Saturn in Aquarius, we see new technological solutions being created to address our global concerns.
Saturn on the initial degree in Aquarius will be square on Uranus in Taurus for the entire month of April 2020. This creates an atmosphere of longing for unity and togetherness, but also an unstoppable need for freedom and autonomy.
An ambitious period for Aquarius, Aries, Leo, Libra and Sagittarius, but for Taurus and Scorpio, this can be a period of frustration.
Mars will strengthen Saturn in Aquarius until May 13th, 2020. Aquarius is a 'fixed' sign, so not much will change the current situation this month. Radical solutions will prove to be the best option this spring and summer of 2020.
However, the cooperation of Mars and Saturn in Aquarius can also catalyze further global spread of the virus and lead to more closed borders, quarantines, more stringent legislation or other restrictive activities in April 2020 such as travel (specifically for air traffic) and meetings.
In the midst of this global pandemic, we must limit physical contact with others, but now that we are forced to social distancing, the appreciation of interconnections and “we are all in this together ” is also growing.
This “we-feeling” is now further enhanced by the transit of Venus in Gemini.
Venus in Gemini in April 2020 refers to a growing desire for togetherness, solidarity and friendship.
Venus' journey through Gemini begins on April 4, 2020 and due to retrogradation, Venus will stay in Gemini until August 7th, 2020!
On April 8th, 2020, Mars in Aquarius will square Uranus in Taurus. Fortunately, this only happens once a year, because this contrary aspect of tension can be accompanied by friction and uproar.
It is about being able to defend individuality during the crisis.
On April 8, 2020 it is also Full Moon in Libra.
The first Full Super Moon after the Spring Equinox is in the sign of Libra, the sign of Relationship and Balance, Love and Harmony. The Full Moon is square Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn, so it's not just about finding balance, but also about honesty and responsibility to yourself and others.

On Easter Monday, April 12th, 2020, our swift messenger Mercury shifts into the Spring sign of Aries.
Mercury remains until April 27, 2020 in Aries! With Mercury in the sign of the Warrior, we are more outspoken and more outwardly willing to fight for ideas, but it is also an impulsive force.
Only positive thoughts lead to good results!
From April 20th, 2020, the Sun travels through the earth sign of Taurus and on April 23th, 2020, the Ramadan begins.
It is New Moon in Taurus Earth, time to bring grounded energy into our lives.
This New Moon phase gives us the opportunity to align with the SELF and the direction we need to take in this life.
The New Moon is conjunct Uranus in Taurus. It brings us positive energy and creative solutions to the most diverse problems and brings an unprecedented sense of belonging.

Pluto has been traveling through Capricorn since December 2008 and will remain there until the end of 2024.
The longer Pluto passes through a certain zodiac sign, the stronger the changes manifest on Earth.
A storm of transformation is coming. Pluto in the cardinal sign of Capricorn manifests fundamental changes and transformations and opens the door wide for new opportunities.
Pluto in Capricorn is about institutions and social structures.
Which social structures will remain or what will replace them?
From April 25th, 2020 Pluto in Capricorn turns retrograde until October 3rd, 2020.
During this period, the power of Pluto will be even more intense than it already is.
Pluto retrograde is a powerful period of almost six months in which old patterns and everything hidden and obsolete will be released.
During this period, no stone is left unturned.
Issues related to power or abuse of power will come to the fore during this period.
From April 27, 2020, Mercury will travel through Taurus and focus will be on solving practical issues. Realistic, sustainable and feasible plans for the future will be made.
In May 2020, the North Node will move from Cancer to Gemini, and then our collective focus will be on how we communicate, where our priorities lie, how information spreads and how we distinguish facts from fiction.
Why is there so much hate? Why is there so much fear among humanity?
Time to take responsibility and heal and clear our planet Earth from greed and manipulation.
Let us arm ourselves with love and truth to resist fear, deception, and untruths.
On to a better world.
I wish everyone strength and healing!
