Astrological Overview: April 25 - May 1, 2022

Astrologer Pam Younghans writes this weekly astrological journal based on planetary influences, and offers perspectives and insights to assist you in making the best use of current energies. This column is not intended as prediction. Your own experience will be more specifically defined by transits to your personal chart.

Aspects of Note this Week:

All times listed are Pacific Daylight Time. (For Eastern Time, add 3 hours; For Greenwich Mean Time, add 7 hours.)

MON: Venus square Ceres
TUE: Mercury sextile Jupiter
WED: Mars semisquare Eris, Venus conjunct Neptune
THU: Mercury trine Pluto
FRI: Pluto stations retrograde, Sun semisquare Neptune, Mercury enters Gemini
SAT: Taurus New Moon/Partial Solar Eclipse, Venus conjunct Jupiter, Saturn trine Ceres
SUN: Venus sextile Pluto, Neptune square Ceres

OUR FIRST ECLIPSE of 2022 occurs this week! The partial Solar Eclipse on Saturday, April 30, will be visible only from southwest South America, the Pacific Ocean, and Antarctica.
An eclipse of the Sun is also a New Moon, but it wields a greater influence than our regular monthly lunation. Instead of indicating themes for just the next month, a Solar Eclipse New Moon sets the stage for the next six months.
AT THE TIME of the New Moon, at 1:27 p.m. PDT on Saturday, the Sun and Moon will be at 10°28´ Taurus, with Uranus nearby (at 14°32´ Taurus). This means that the two "lights" are just four degrees away from being exactly conjunct the sideways-spinning planet, which infuses the eclipse with its highly charged energies. Since Uranus has a penchant for manifesting the unexpected, the day of the lunation — and the next six months! — should be full of breakthroughs and surprises that may upset the status quo but also launch us into a new, more liberated future.

At its highest vibration, Uranus is a transpersonal planet and the representative of Higher Mind. Its influence opens us to new understandings, innovative thinking, and radical insights. Our perceptions and perspectives are shifted, often through sudden events that work like an electric shock to rewire our brains.,,
