Its Monday, ruled by the Moon and dedicated to Shiva and a good day for deep meditation but most of us have problems with Mondays unless you are Cancer rising, and have a really strong unafflicted moon in your natal chart connected to Taurus or Pisces or in really good houses.  I have felt very intense emotions on Sunday and now that is the vulnerable Monday period, I did not want to get out of bed.  What’s going on?

Starting to feel the complexity of the astrology this morning with Moon conjunct Saturn in the constellation of Moola and moving toward Pluto and Saturn, very powerfully, and still squaring Venus.  My colleague, Janna Lynn called it a heart of darkness transit until April 20th and said the follow:

By Sunday the Moon moves to the tail of the Scorpion joining Lord of Time Saturn in the lunar constellation of ‘Mula’ at the precarious crossing of karmic soul growth between water-sign Scorpio and fire-sign Sagittarius. Mula’s deity ‘Nirriti,’ the goddess of dissolution and destruction, is located in the kingdom of the dead near Ophiuchus at the heart of the Galactic Center. The South Lunar Node | Ketu, the severed head of the snake-dragon, which causes eclipses along with his other half North Node | Rahu, is associated with this lunar constellation (sidereal 0. 00 to 13. 20 Sagittarius; tropical 26° Sagittarius – 9°20′ Capricorn). ”

If you are ruled by Venus and are Taurus or Libra rising, the Saturn stationary square onto Venus is very intense.  We discussed this last week.  This aspect can create tensions in relationships and lead to cooling down of romance, break-ups, rude awakenings and reality checks.

For non-romantic relationships, there may be  strain, there will also be revaluation,  loss of friendships or business relationships if you can not get through the problem areas.   This is a time to unload and clear problems and exalted Venus is strong enough to support it for some charts and a resolution to this issue may come  by April 15th when the aspect repeats in direct motion.   Be open to letting go of relationships that do not work for you or do the hard work to get through them.  If you are not in relationship, loneliness may become an issue over the next week into April 15th.  Get through this by expressing your artistic talent in a painting, song, poem or dance.

Pluto goes stationary retrograde on Thursday, April 20th and the moon is moving toward conjunction with Pluto on April 18th at 9:58 am EDT.  This can be an tense emotional experience  as it brings up deep unconscious energies to be healed. The energies can seem intense and obsessive. Luckily this is a quick transit but will be compounded because Tuesday, Mars is aspecting Saturn with an 8th house aspect exactly churning fear energies anyway.

Finally,  Saturn still has a tight aspect onto Ketu in Aquarius within 63 degrees and it is very powerful and we will republish our article on this one as it is long-lasting and intense.

What to do?  Most of world will have a few drinks, take some drugs, smoke a pack of cigarettes or eat themselves into a numbed-out stupor or vege out watching TV like I did last night.  That can work for a bit but it is destructive and takes you out of your deepest being.

If you are on spiritual path, what do you do?  Those  of us on a spiritual path have to go through them. Feel them deeply. The process of feeling them can facilitate their deep release. What are we afraid of? Are we really those stupid feelings or something bigger?  Go deep into them and the attention of your consciousness will facilitate their release.

Don’t the storms make you deeper and a more powerful person? Embrace. Realize that you are unchanging and nothing can touch you. You are invincible. Merge with the water and become One.

So if you are not able to do that you can always do the following:

1) This is a time to be disciplined about your meditation practice and yoga and other spiritual practices because these lighten the burden and give us more strength to deal with everything. The tendency is to skip that which is good for us when we are challenged but that’s like taking off a winter coat when its below zero.
2) Donate time and money to help those in need. This is one way to address karma and by getting out of our own stuff, we feel better and move through our own karma.
3) Be disciplined with diet and exercise. The tendency is to use food to cover up difficult emotions or skip exercise because we feel tired or lazy. So much illness (6th house) can be overcome if we are disciplined doing what is good for us. Avoid addictive behaviors and non-life-supporting actions especially now. The tendency is to what to escape but usually this leads to more difficult problems quickly.
4) Spend time with spiritual knowledge, attend spiritual gatherings and hang around with positive people at this time.
5) Do transformational healing work to move through these energi
