A dramatic month of April can demonstrate a high concentration of major changes potentially occurring; serious wars; threats; potential conflicts, serious economic implications – this trend will persist at least until the end of May.
Also, two eclipses will take place in the month of April: a total eclipse of the Moon, which takes place on April 15th; then there will a ring-shaped eclipse of the Sun on April 29th as well.
April also continues the trend that began already in March, especially between –April 1st and April 4th when there is the square between adjacent idle Sun and Uranus, with Jupiter at 90 degrees in Cancer and 90 degrees between Pluto in Capricorn.
The square reinforces a sense of global insecurity and fears for personal safety and can create extreme economic conditions. Events may get out of hand in the resulting fighting, and levels of individual stress that began in March may intensify.
I foresee continued great danger in Ukraine. Vladimir Putin himself may gain further momentum to the end of the year, but even during the month of April he continues to strengthen his position, if only temporarily.
In North Korea and Africa events may be equally dramatic, with more missile tests in North Korea too, in order to test their compatriots in the south, in Japan and in the West. Even in Israel, the border territories there may not be so quiet, including in Gaza. Security concerns will trouble society, with ensuing dangers of a new intifada and loss of control.
Another extreme peak is expected between April 12th and April 16th, whose aspect is very difficult for Putin, but also for both Bibi Netanyahu and for Abu Mazen as well.
Hot days of fire and arson may be coming then, with a difficult impact on economics and security. Labor and health issues will be at the center of the crisis. It could be unemployed workers, or events of social protest, which get out of control.
April 1st to April 4th – Uranus is located in Aries and this ensures a tight twist of unusual and mostly negative events. Do not count those days on anybody’s promises. The Sun is idle in Uranus which is particularly aggressive and there is a negative triangle formed with Jupiter located in Cancer, Saturn in Scorpio and Venus in Pisces
For personal and economic security this aspect suggests a very bad crisis. There could be a loss of a sense of control with possible downfall of a great institution, maybe a financial market or a major bank suggesting renewed systemic financial weakness.
But the economic crisis may arise as well from reactions to breaking political events with a greater danger of war all around it.
From April 5th to April 6th Venus in Pisces is moving to a location ideal for Venus and suggests positive issues relating to natural gas, liquid fuels and petroleum. Maybe new sources of hydrocarbons will be discovered during the month, but prices will correspondingly tend to fall. Weather will in any case be cool and rainy.
Between April 6th and April 8th Sun moves 180 degrees from its March position with the retreat of Aries – a very dangerous threshold for accidents to increase but also security risks as well. The aspect of Putin’s map may suggest an attack and an aggressive and powerful assault. The map of his clandestine activity is hugely problematic as well.
On April 8th Mercury is in Aries and then from April 12th to April 16th Mercury forms a square when retreating 180 degrees from Mars and Aries, and Jupiter are 90 degrees to Cancer and Pluto, which begins to decline by April 14th .
Pluto’s transit will be very dangerous and its withdrawal more difficult. Especially large wildfires may threaten. The Sun holds an aspect of 150 degrees to Saturn – this is depressing and a pessimistic cause for alarm.
From April 15th to April 17th Venus is in Pisces and Jupiter has a positive aspect that might facilitate recovery from Cancer and often save a number of bad situations. While the saga of the Mars retreat Aries has not yet reached its peak – a negative peak, which is holding off till the end of April and throughout May.
Between April 13th and April 20th the Sun holds very chaotic aspects. Acts of aggression and violence, extreme weather, fires and a sense of helplessness may develop.
From April 16th to April 18th Venus is in a positive aspect to Pluto, which could be very good for financial matters, and of course for individual love affairs and romances.
Between April 17th and April 20th, Venus is in Pisces with a particularly difficult aspect of Mars and Aries – this means the financial aspect is not good when it comes to loan defaults and providing mediation attempts that could explode. The Map of Bibi Netanyahu is particularly problematic here.
From April 20th to April 25th Venus is in a harmonious aspect to Saturn – the lesser evil, which gives a sense of financial survival. At the same time in Mars, when Aries is at 90 degrees to Jupiter, Cancer is 90 degrees, and Pluto is at 90 degrees to Capricorn – this is a hard aggressive aspect indicative of places where it is impossible to to relax, especially where accompanied by difficult security incidents.
The United States map shows a square; with Mars and Aries opposite Mercury and Pluto opposite Capricorn – creating a perfect square to shake things up in the US.
Between April 24th and April 30th the Sun is in Mercury, Taurus’s aspect of renewal with Pluto in the background of Mars, and Capricorn’s withdrawal from Aries all deeply disturbing. Uranus and Pluto are at 90 degrees leaves the world in turmoil most basic issues when trying to save acute critical situations. It is clear that the global crisis reverberates on economic issues.
Everything that happens in the month of April will form a new consciousness, a new state ordering of the strength of world priorities. You should notice when Mercury and the Sun will be in front of Saturn in Scorpio in early May – global economic issues will be the center of attention.
This may create a global crisis in banking, mortgages, pensions and other forms of saving. We are nearing the height of the drama. The Map of Obama record reflects a difficulty in the last week of the month, and it may be on the subject of unemployment, or in the area of his health programme.
The same Map of Vladimir Putin is super-dramatic in the last week of April. He will be in talks to create agreements between the superpowers, but have great difficulty in bridging the gaps. Aspects are all negative and the information could knock markets and raise raw material prices. Taipei as well may show very difficult signs at the end of April and the first week May.
The Map of Vladimir Putin has been challenging for several months. The man continues to walk on the edge of the most dangerous hunches. While it raises the level of his excitement, this time it is likely to endanger himself and drag everybody into a dangerous confrontation. I watched him last year. Unexpected life events could happen; he may even pay for the sin of hubris.
