Courageous Conversations

We are in the throes of eclipse season, a time of great beginnings and unexpected endings. Life is never the same when these karmic turning points activate our natal chart. We know one of the big stories of the April 19 solar eclipse at 29 Aries. Last week as Mercury, the winged messenger, squared Donald Trump’s natal Saturn, he was indicted for the hush money payment to Stormy Daniels. He is the first former president charged with a crime. Saturn rules consequences and karma. This intense lunation is in a smooth trine from his 9th house of legal affairs to the ascendant. His identity is forever changed.


I am hosting a Solar Eclipse workshop on Sunday, April 16, at noon PT and will discuss the astrology of Donald Trump, Stormy Daniels, DA Alvin Bragg, and the USA. Join to learn about this lunation and how it may impact you. I will give hot take astrology readings to as many people as possible. If you can not make it live, you will receive the recording.

It is fitting that Trump is turning himself in the day before the Full Moon. Airy Libra turns our attention to justice and fairness. Venus is conjunct his midheaven, so the cash will continue to pour in from his supporters. The authoritative Sun, wounded Chiron, and confident Jupiter are conjunct in Aries opposite the Libra Moon. The Sun rules leaders, and the Moon governs the people in mundane astrology. This planetary pattern perfectly describes the People vs. Donald Trump. Astrology is literal.

Libra oversees intimate relationships. Consider whether there is a balance in your closest one-on-one relationships. Mercury in Taurus is in a smooth cooperative sextile with Saturn in Pisces. The opportunity is for courageous and compassionate conversations about dividing responsibilities. The Chiron Sun conjunct encourages the healing of old hurts. Full moons are times of release and forgiveness. Use these prompts for contemplation, journaling, or an oracle/ tarot card spread:

✨ Reflecting on my Aries New Moon intentions about taking brave actions, what progress can I celebrate? Which goals need to be adjusted? What do I need to release?

🕊️ How can I let go of old hurts in my relationships and foster forgiveness?

💡 How do I let perceptions of how I will appear to others hold me back?

🎵 The song of the Full Moon is Islands in the Stream by Dolly Parton and Kenny Rodgers.
