You are fumbling your way forward, Pisces, although in fits and starts. There is a torturous winding way that leads you up from where you now dwell to whither you are going and this is the way that you must inevitably traverse. In the current stage of this years-long journey, you are taking off in some very new ways this month. You are like a butterfly escaping the net, and yet you are in such a complex process of transmutation, with so many rotations of the rotisserie, that it will probably be well into the next month of May before you see your safe landing place. When you do, however, you will know it, and know it all the better for all the twists and turns of your arriving.
As the month begins, you are poised on the brink of a new phase of your existence. One factor that is altering for you now is the way you see your plans shaping up for future endeavors, and as well the group affiliations that you favor and which aid you in getting there. You might be finding that your goals and plans do not fully align with your most complete truth, the inner vision that you have for yourself moving forward. There are large energies stimulating this vision now that it will take time to properly integrate. It could also be difficult to switch gears as the past is still a strong factor in your awareness, perhaps preventing you from whole-heartedly moving toward the unknown future that this new thinking and new visioning represent. The New Moon of Sunday, April 3rd, gives you a burst of energy and to impulse to move forward. You are beginning to be motivated in entirely different ways than you have before. There is a part of you that is holding back also, a conservative and cautious position within that you can also definitely feel. All this is complicated by the Mercury retrograde period, lasting all month long, that keeps outcomes essentially uncertain at this time. Your participation in the world is undergoing a tidal shift, and this reflects back to your understanding of your own deeply held values, your relationships, and also to the evolutionary shifts that are taking place within you. The First Quarter Moon of Monday, April 11th, represents an important juncture, when you are able to recognize many things about your current situation that were formerly in the dark. Your ruler Neptune having just entered your identity sector for the first time since you were born, you are feeling more empowered in the changes that you are in the process of making and also perhaps more challenged. There are inherent conflicts in your position that may only be coming to light at this time, and that might have the effect of your feeling embattled and at odds with the world around you, but this is not an occasion for despair but rather for rejoicing as the outlines of what you are up to become more clearly revealed in these times of trial. The Full Moon of the following weekend, taking place on Sunday April 17th, signals a time of more peaceful progress. You are still in a process of deep meditation regarding what is going on with you internally, since Mercury is nearing the end of its retrograde and is even more powerfully constellated. It is not an easy time to get things done, but it might be an excellent time for reflecting on what is most meaningful to you. The Last Quarter Moon of Easter Sunday, April 24th, brings in a mystical aspect, and an understanding that the true gold of your recent experience lies in the information received. In the midst of a time of relative interpersonal tensions, you might be tuning in to ancient patterns of behavior that have ruled you, as it were, from below. If so, it is for the purpose of accepting the wounded places within you and moving beyond them.
