The Sun is attached to Uranus with a 90-degree aspect to Pluto (a cardinal square), symbolizing volatility, shocks after dramatic natural events with fatalities, but also an increasing tendency for major accidents and the risk of outbreaks of war or serious military confrontations. It is an aspect which in economic terms is associated with separations between partners, between countries, and in major economic alliances—conflicts that usher in separation without turning back.
Most decidedly, from 4/5 to 4/7, Mars is in Taurus with a 150 degree aspect to Saturn, and so expect an erupting crisis with hostile relations in financial areas as well as in areas of security.

In the area of security, many lives will be lost, with lingering effects.

On 4/15, Mercury reaches Taurus, a location that yearns to turn labor into security and a search for a sens of belonging, permanence. Its aspects with Saturn in Sagittarius from 4/15 to 4/17 are disharmonious. This aspect will indicate difficulty in signing contracts, extreme positions that cannot be bridged. The banks position versus the public is not accepted. Not a good time to seek employment or start an important project.
From 4/16 to 4/20, Venus in Gemini with a disharmonious aspect (90 degrees) to Neptune expresses disappointment from ideas, from people who make promises they don’t keep. It’s a time when scandals and criminal information are exposed. It’s a problematic time imbued with a general feeling that more is being hidden than revealed. Not a good time for business starts, and it is recommended that one avoid trusting promises during this period, because their only purpose is to promote an idea without accepting any responsibility for consequences and casualties.
From 4/16 to 4/21, Mercury is in Taurus with a square aspect to Jupiter in Leo. It is a very severe aspect, rife with difficulties in terms of work. Could be reports on unemployment, and a much lower GDP than was expected. Disappointing partnerships, bad days to sign agreements and contracts or to start work, buy a house or a car. It always stimulates extremist conservative groups against the government, resulting in numerous protests, strikes that hurt the country’s major arteries. Confrontation between the banks and the government.

From 4/19 to 4/22, Mercury is attached to Mars and together they form a harmonious aspect to Pluto in Capricorn, symbolizing the need to survive and generate new economic starts, which are built from scratch, investing a lot of work without seeing immediate results. The very fact that Mars and Mercury are attached in Taurus symbolizes an energetic, neurotic, aggressive, nasty struggle. Their attachment is hard and disharmonious, which proves that opposing forces are joining together to start rebuilding anew, be it a country’s economy, or following a natural disaster, or starting to repair war damages.
As the Sun enters Taurus, is creates, between 4/22 and 4/24, an aspect of crisis with Saturn in Sagittarius. It’s an aspect that points at the world’s poor countries, which suffer from a lack of food and raw materials, through drought, climactic change and natural disasters that cause the decline of the world’s raw materials and food. There’s a general sense of malaise, pessimism is rampant in a world that appears darker because of the growing confrontation between rich and poor, and between extremist forces trying in many ways to disrupt people’s sense of security. It, in turn, reinforces the sense of insecurity in many parts of the world. That’s what this attachment of Mercury and Mars are causing, one of the most problematic zodiac attachments, resulting in loss of human lives in wars and natural disasters, as well as large-scale economic collapse of a country, a very large corporation, and large, influential banks.
