Mercury is the planet of the mind, thinking and communication style.
It zips through the zodiac pretty quickly and impacts the nature of our communications as it moves through each sign.
Mercury has been in Aries since March 18, 2023 and it is moving into Taurus on April 3, 2023 (and a heads up, it will be Retrograde later in the month).
Mercury in the Earth sign Taurus is going to feel a bit different than Mercury in the Fire sign of Aries.
The energy will be slower and more deliberate as Taurus is associated with being grounded, practical and stable.
This will be a great time to plan, organize, handle financial matters and other practical tasks.
As Mercury moves into Taurus, we are still in Aries season.
The season of fresh starts, high energy, confidence, courage, taking risks, having adventures.
Even if you are not Aries, you have Aries somewhere in your chart. So, now is a good time to nurture the direct, competitive, honest, impulsive, assertive part of you.
If you need a little courage to embrace that fiery part of you, here are 5 Affirmations for Aries season that might help you!
I'm a born leader.
I am the boss of my time.
I smile because I am strong.
I act with courage and confidence.
Courage leads to freedom and freedom leads to happiness.
Now on to the Full Moon. The Full "Pink" Moon in Libra occured on April 5, 2023, at 9:34 (PDT) and on April 6, 2023 at 12:34 am (EDT), 1:34 am (EDT), 5:34 am (London) and 2:34 pm (Sydney), adjust for your time wherever you are in the world. But Full Moon energy affects the days before and after as well.
This Full Moon is in Libra, opposite the Sun in Aries.
Aries is all about "ME", Libra is all about "WE".
At the Full Moon we are asked to balance the opposing energies and release what is no longer serving us.
At this Full Moon, we want to look at how we achieve harmony and balance in our relationship with ourselves and our relationships with other people.
Check in, make sure you are not being drained of energy by the people in your life, whether it be your spouse, partner, children, siblings, friends, co-workers.
Celebrate your healthy relationships. Do something that makes your heart sing!
If you are involved in a toxic or unhealthy relationship, now is the perfect time to drop it!
There are 2 aspects to the Moon to take note of:
Moon opposite Chiron- The Moon is your emotions, Chiron is your wound, this aspect could trigger past hurts, feeling unworthy and repressed anger. Whatever comes up, needs to be healed.
Moon opposite Jupiter- Feeling friendly and easygoing, good time for spiritual development.
