This is the third episode of our MOONSHINEseries, where we invite intuitive astrologer Kristina Wingeier to share her wisdom by providing us with a full lunar report (complete with a quick-reference cosmic calendar, breakdown of themes we can expect + luna-inspired rituals). Interested in how this all can be connected to flowers? We get into that too. ; )
Below, you will find the written summary of our cosmic forecast for the upcoming lunar month! Since both new + full moons are ruled by mars, the themes you'll see arising are: inner child, identity + depth.
New Moon conjunct Uranus ~ break open, embrace the chaos + free yourself of limitations. Uranus is all about unexpected surprises. Leave room for spontaneity this week, especially on Wednesday when the Sun makes a conjunction to Uranus in Aries - which won’t happen again until 2094!
Mars stations direct, turning forward again after 3 weeks of Mercury retrograde. (Mercury station means no movement, but you are facing forward). Harness your inner spark + set your sights on the path ahead. The pace will build up slowly over the next 2 weeks. Look for improvements in communication as Mercury moves forward.
Chiron, the wounded healer, has been in the sign of Pisces for the last 8 years. This means we've been working with spiritual wounds and learning about the true nature of compassion. Shadow Pisces is martyrdom + self-sacrifice; empathy, boundaries + self-care have become hot topics during the time that Chiron has been in Pisces.
Chiron in Aries will invite us to explore wounds around identity and expression of self. This will especially impact folks with strong Aries in their natal chart or anyone not allowed to be themselves in childhood/families of origin.
The Quarter Moon in Leo asks: is what you are building or growing in line with the values of your heart? If not, what simple actions can you take to course-correct?
Coupled with Saturn retrograde on April 17th, it’s time to reflect on what you are building in your life. Repair any cracks in the foundation.
Now is the the time to review a project or something that you’ve been building or that took a shift at the beginning of this year. It can be a health routine, a radio show, a book you’re writing, a house you’re building.
On Thursday April 19th, the Sun moves into Taurus. Finally, some firm ground beneath your feet + stability to build on.
Building to the Full Moon in Scorpio + 2 strong Mars aspects coming, this is a high energy week. Stay out of power struggles with other people. Don’t give your power away - channel it into YOU.
One of the most powerful Full Moons this year. Scorpio is about deep dive investigations of the subconscious ... inviting us to ask ourselves:
What really drives me?
What am I harvesting?
Where am I growing?
Am I aligned with my heart?
This Full Moon is also influenced by Jupiter, which will expand the transformative properties of the Scorpio energy.
Full Moons are always a time of revelation - things come to the surface our out of the shadows. You might feel very raw or vulnerable. Spend time with people you trust or spend time alone. Avoid powers struggles. If you get caught up in one, try to walk away. Own your shadow and take responsibility for any projections.
Rest and replenish from the past week. Stay rooted and focused on your priorities. Be in the present moment and unhook from past trauma and patterns. Take breaks when you need them. Move away from drama. Do what needs to be done.
Use Fierce Compassion to heal + soften your heart, offer compassion to yourself + others; cool the temper; soften hard edges.
We get to step back a little bit, get some space + look at things from a birds eye view without getting so caught up. It's a nice time to look back over the previous moon cycle + integrate the insights we've gained.
Time for spring cleaning!
Love + flower petals,
