ASTRO-COLUMN FOR APRIL 2024

THE GREATEST ASTROLOGICAL PICNIC IN THE KNOWN UNIVERSE

I will send out more information later but, because July and August are extremely hot, I plan to hold the picnic on June 23, a Sunday.  Put this on your calendar.  If there are any readers whom you would like me to invite, please send me the information.

APRIL 2024 Phenomena:

APRIL DATES FOR PSYCHIC & MULTI-DIMENSIONAL PHENOMENA:

Septiles between the personal planets generally favor intuitive insights.  See article on my website on Multi-Dimensional Phenomena
There are no Septile Cluster in April or May so I will list the strongest periods –

APRIL 11 (10-12):  Jupiter is septile Neptune on the 11th and this is a powerful period for mystical and multi-dimensional experiences.  Slow moving planets are always more intense

April 22 and May 1:  Mars septile Pluto and then Uranus.  This is a powerful time to take inspired action.  Multi-dimensional experiences can occur during activities – this includes ghost hunting and ghost tours.

MAJOR EVENTS FOR APRIL 2024 – For Transiting Retrogrades, see www.lynnkoiner.com  Not all dates have not been updated but the interpretation is correct.

APRIL 1:  Mercury turns Retrograde at 27 Aries

APRIL 8:  CRISES Solar Eclipse at 19 Aries at 2:21pm EDT

APRIL 23:  Full Moon at 4 Scorpio at 7:49 pm EDT

APRIL 25:  Mercury turns Direct at 15 Aries

 

CRISIS LUNATIONS:   The CRISES NEW MOON occur on April 8 at the Solar Eclipse

 

Crisis Lunation periods occurs when, at the time that the Moon is New or Full, the Moon is physically very close to the earth. This closeness-lunation parallel will amplify our emotional reactions, bringing matters to a crisis point. This Crisis Moon period usually begins about one week before the New/Full Moon and lasts several days afterward.

I find that you are only affected by one of the Crisis Moon periods, usually one that falls close to a natal planet.

When a crisis arises, my advice is always to “stay calm, relax and make no impulsive decisions for at least a week.” The most critical are eclipses. The most potent occurred on April 15, 1995, because it occurred at the time of a Lunar Eclipse. Of course, the event it portended was the Oklahoma City bombing as the Eclipse fell on the ASC/DESC axis over that city. The WTC/Pentagon attack occurred within a wide orb of a Crisis Lunation.  The US invaded Iraq on a Crisis Full Moon in March 2003.

I remember one example – a father called about his daughter who had run away from home about 4 days before the CFM. I told him

what was occurring and that he should wait for about a week and she would likely return home….and she did. After the effects of the CFM were over, she became rational again.  Hormones and a CFM are not a good mix!

During the year, there are generally 4 Crisis New Moons and 4 Crisis Full Moons. There is usually only ONE of these CFMs that hits you — generally, not all of them … and you cannot always tell which one it is going to be.

When it hits, you go crazy and your emotions are magnified. But, when the Moon begins to move away from the earth, we calm down.  I am a Virgo so a rational explanation is very satisfying for me. If I know that I am feeling this way because of some astrological/astronomical configuration, it makes it seem OK and I feel much better.

Yet, there are times when events occur that are not transient.  During a Crises Lunation in 2013, I had an automobile accident and, at another Crises Lunation in 2015, after getting out of jail, this man with whom I had the accident tried to sue me for total disability, hoping that I would not show up in New Jersey for the deposition.  In January 2019, at the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse Crises Lunation, I received a message that my dad had passed away while I was in Switzerland.

NEW:  August 2019 had a Crisis New Moon at the beginning and at the end of the month.  This is somewhat like a Blue Moon month.  The Blue Moon (see a short article on my website) is a Full Moon at the beginning and end of the month.  It is my experience that it is like an entire month of Full Moon crises and tension.

August being bracketed by a Crises New Moon is like a month of crises – at least for me.  I have a dental crisis, my sweet cat is very ill and he may not make it, and the non-profit that runs my farm has taken all of the joy out of farming for me.  They say that the lease will be to protect me when it is only to give them more power and control over me.  Yes, I have a good lawyer.  The positive – I will be free from worrying about the gardens.

The Crises New Moon occurred on my birthday, August 30, 2019.  A lunation occurring on or within a day of one’s birthday will trigger a major change within the coming year.  This works even if it is not a Crises Lunation.  The major change was in my home – major renovations and Bill moved in with me. 

At the March 2020 CFM, I had a terrible panic attack at night – I thought I was going to have a heart attack.  In August and September, with the CNMs, there were so many plumbing problems.  My pipes are mostly from the 1930s so they are in bad shape.  For what it is worth, the Transiting NN was crossing my natal Mars in Gemini.  I got hit a lot because, during the November CNM, my old desktop started to grind and make a lot of noise.  Just as I was about to take it to Ellicott City to a repair shop, my lawyer came by and told me about a mutual friend a couple of blocks away and he fixed it for $20!!!  It just needed cleaning and oiling.

COMMENT ON PLUTO AT 28-29 CAPRICORN:

My former horary teacher, Gil Navarro, said that, when the Outer Planets reach the Ending Degrees, people feel desperate, at the end of their rope.  People commit desperate and even violent actions.  We can see this daily in the news with people killing people for no apparent reason.  These are desperate times.  This spring and summer Pluto goes into 0 Aquarius but it will not be until 2024 that it fully leaves the Ending Degrees.  Then, Neptune will be in the Ending Degrees and people tune out or delude themselves in desperation.

For example, the Dollar Store shooting by Ryan Palmeter who later shot himself after shooting others.

ADDENDUM:  I have observed that, when Pluto is in the Ending Degrees of Capricorn, many people are having accidents or health issues.  I know that, when I have had a major health issue in the past, it always precedes a major life transformation.  An accident or health issue will break up some patterns in our lives.  With Pluto entering Aquarius, everything is going to change, just as it did when Pluto entered Capricorn.  This often happens in natal charts when a progressed planet changes signs – we are confronted with a “fork in the road” and we must make a decision.  It is when we cannot decide that fate takes over.  You do not want that – Fate is a bitch!

PHILOSOPHICAL THOUGHT:  LET GO OF EVERYTHING THAT HURTS YOUR HEART.

GOOD DATES/PERIODS for APRIL 2024 – All times are EDT

Remember, Mercury is Retrograde so the good dates are not too good until the end of the month

APRIL 6:  The Moon is in the sign of Pisces but the timing AFTER 7am EDT would be the best.  There is a series of parallels followed by sextiles to Jupiter-Pluto-Uranus and ending with the Moon crossing Neptune.   The Neptunian influence is best for creative, intuitive and spiritual concepts.   Activities that draw upon one’s compassionate nature will be supported by a Spirit Guide.

APRIL 17-18:  The Moon is in the sign of Leo.  The best period is from 8pm EDT on the 17th until 8am EDT on the 18th.  The parallels bring permanent support and the ending trine the Sun brings additional support from one in authority.

APRIL 25:  The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio and, from 12pm to 7pm EDT, the Moon trines Mars and Neptune in Pisces.  This is a favorable time for creative and spiritual activities.  Humanitiarian activities are supported as well.

APRIL 29-30:  The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn and the numerous favorable aspects make this the best period to initiate.  The Moon sextiles the Jupiter-Uranus close alignment and sextile Neptune and Mars in Pisces.  This is an excellent period for practical action for creative and humanitarian activities.

————————-
NOTE TO READER: These dates are based upon electional techniques.  All of the Moon sign dates apply to everyone.  Do not simply read your own Moon sign – read all of the signs for what I say about the specific dates. The Moon sign information will NOT describe the day, only the outcome if you initiate something important on that day.  Favorable periods are in Bold Print.

—————–

* CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19):   If you feel trapped in a situation that seems to be holding you back, holding you onto negativity, know that you have the power to walk away.  This year is an Ending Cycle.  As soon as you walk away, a new opportunity will present itself – almost by magic.  You may find yourself connected with an “old money” family who can benefit you in some way.

          APRIL 1-2:  The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn and, from the very beginning, Mercury turns Retrograde and anything commenced before 6:14 pm EDT, will be dropped.  There is a brief period from 12:20 am EDT to 1:40 am EDT that the Moon favors Venus and Neptune.  In Europe or other countries, this might be a nice time for social interaction but not much for the U.S.

          APRIL 29-30:  The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn and the numerous favorable aspects make this the best period to initiate.  The Moon sextiles the Jupiter-Uranus close alignment and sextile Neptune and Mars in Pisces.  This is an excellent period for practical action for creative and humanitarian activities.

* AQUARIUS (January 20-February 17):    If there are any disappointments, a better situation is coming.  There may be a sudden surprise – something that you were not expecting.  But, my month’s end, you will be making plans for the future – travel or education are supported.  Aquarians need to always see a “light at the end of the tunnel” – something to look forward to experiencing and it will be there for you.

          APRIL 5:  The Moon is in Aquarius from 12:00 am to 1:30am when the Moon favors Mercury Retrograde.  This is a time when Mercury Retrograde is beneficial.  It portends a coming together by mutual agreement.  Mercury is actually moving TOWARDS the Moon.

* PISCES (February 18-March 19):   Finish up any projects now so that you can move forward into a new cycle.  Do keep your life in balance.  Use the Septile periods to connect with your Spirit Guide.  Working in nature will provide insights.  This is not a month for spending – allow your money to grow.  Mercury is Retrograde so you might regret your choices, at least, until the end of the month.

          APRIL 6:  The Moon is in the sign of Pisces but the timing AFTER 7am EDT would be the best.  There is a series of parallels followed by sextiles to Jupiter-Pluto-Uranus and ending with the Moon crossing Neptune.   The Neptunian influence is best for creative, intuitive and spiritual concepts.   Activities that draw upon one’s compassionate nature will be supported by a Spirit Guide.

* ARIES (March 19-April 19):   As an Aries, you will appreciate the many new beginnings and opportunities this month.  Financial benefit may come from a group or family well-established finances.  Remember, Mercury is retrograde until the end of April so make evaluations before making any decisions at the end of the month.

          APRIL 7-8:  The Moon is in the sign of Aries but this is not fortuitous time as there is a Crises New Moon that is an eclipse, an eclipse that crosses over the United States.  The Moon does not make many aspects – to Venus and Mercury R.  The Moon-Mercury R aspect after the eclipse can portend a coming together on some agreement.

* TAURUS (April 20-May 20):   This is the month to be a seeker – of knowledge, of information and even a seeker of spiritual insight.  Exercise caution in what you say – Mercury is Retrograde and a severe approach will not work.  It is a time to listen to what another is really saying.  Do not over-react and “don’t sweat the small stuff.”  The spiritual path will give you the insight that you need.

          APRIL 9-10:  The Moon is in the sign of Taurus and, while the Moon makes very good aspects, there seems to be a block or obstacle with Mars conjunction Saturn.  The Moon can navigate the obstacle, act as a negotiator.  Uranus presents the unexpected and the ending aspect to Neptune can bring assistance via a Spirit Guide who sends help.

* GEMINI (May 21-June 20):  This is a month for transformation.  We are in a great Ending and Beginning Cycle and you are very sensitive to this in April.  Do not lose faith.  This is not a time for spending.  Wait for resources to bear fruit and wait for opportunities to bear fruit as well.  When life becomes stressful, take a break, rest, meditate – remove yourself from annoyances.

          APRIL 11-12-early 13:  The Moon is in the sign of Gemini and it squares the Mars-Saturn conjunction from 10am to 1pm EDT.  Avoid this period as it will be very frustrating.  There are better aspects to follow and then a square to Neptune in which everything fizzles out.

NOTE:  Years ago, there was such as aspect and a friend and I were to travel to Boston for a conference.  I said that we needed to wait until that aspect was over.  Driving to Boston, there were many cars crashed on the side of the icy road.  Driving later, the ice had melted for us.

* CANCER (June 21-July 22):   For many, April is not a spending month.  Obviously, Mercury is retrograde and, if you can return a purchase, you probably will.  Others will be holding onto their resources too so it is not a time to ask for a raise or a loan.  Another caution is not to speak or act in haste.  It is a month to nurture yourself.  Ask for help when you need it.  Do not try to do everything yourself when help is available.

          APRIL 14-15:  The Moon is in the sign of Cancer and the is a mixture of good and stressful aspects, ending with a trine to Neptune.  Working alone is best as you will not be supported by anyone in authority.  For most signs and for a long time until Neptune changes signs, the Ending aspect will be to Neptune – good or bad.  When favored, spiritual or humanitarian activities are favored.

* LEO (July 23-August 22):   You may have had a lot of expenses during the winter which makes you feel poor but everything is about to change.  New ideas spark your imagination and a transformation occurs by month’s end.  Much will be passing from your life as this is a great ending and beginning cycle for all.

          APRIL 17-18:  The Moon is in the sign of Leo.  The best period is from 8pm EDT on the 17th until 8am EDT on the 18th.  The parallels bring permanent support and the ending trine the Sun brings additional support from one in authority.

* VIRGO (August 23-September 22):    Mercury is retrograde so it is probably best for dreaming about what you will do in the future.  It is definitely not an action month – especially take caution against any impulsive speech or actions that you will regret.  Over-reacting is always regretted.  You feel indecisive – choices may be difficult.  Chalk it up to Mercury Retrograde and you will be fine.

          APRIL 19-20:  The Moon is in the sign of Virgo but it is not a time to take any action.  The Moon opposes Saturn so there will be delays and obstacles, ending with an opposition to Mars-Neptune.  The matter will end with deception so do not initiate at this time.

* LIBRA (September 23-October 22):    This is an important month to look to the future – to make plans for travel.  You will be busy but it is pleasurable work with others.  However, by month’s end, you may find yourself trapped in a situation of your own making.  As a result, you can remove the chains that bind you and walk way – do walk away.  This could be a relationship that holds you back – walk away!

          APRIL 21-22:  The Moon is in the sign of Libra and it makes many difficult aspects.  Cardinal signs generate crises – disagreements, hurt feelings and a relationship that proves costly.

* SCORPIO (October 23-November 21):   First, you need to walk away from an emotionally difficult situation.  Once away, new ideas and new opportunities present themselves but wait until Mercury turns Direct.  By month’s end, you will be very busy and “good” busy, working cooperatively with others.

          APRIL 25:  The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio and, from 12pm to 7pm EDT, the Moon trines Mars and Neptune in Pisces.  This is a favorable time for creative and spiritual activities.  Humanitarian activities are supported as well.

* SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 20):    You have had a lot of expenses during the winter.  There will be sudden, unexpected changes in your life in April – maybe play the lottery for a good change.  Sagittarius can “shoot from the hip.”  Curb your tongue, even though you think you are right.  The hurt feelings in others can incur karma that you do not want.

          APRIL 26-27:  The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius but it squares the planets in Pisces, ending with obstacles, irritation and the matter fizzling out in the end.  Pick another day.
