Astrology for Healers and Therapists for April 2018

Before I look at this month’s charts I must point out that the interpretation is mainly for therapists dealing with problematic situations.  That is why I seem to emphasise the problem or negative side of life rather than the positive.  Of course the charts indicate a general situation but the leaning must be for those clients or patients who are struggling in some way.

First do please note that the following is using the WESTERN FOUR ELEMENT system based in western magical and astrological understanding.  The individual therapist must make the translation to the Eastern Five Element system that is usual in Shiatsu and Acupuncture theory.  If you have forgotten the explanation about Elemental and Modal make up then do refresh your memory by looking back at the Introduction to Astrology for Healers and Therapists.

I look at the charts for the Sundays in April when the Sun is nearing the mid heaven for that day.  Obviously this is for Haye Mill, so you will have to accept the approximation for your own geographical position but the interpretation should not vary too much from this one.  It is a way of following the general trends throughout the month.  Notice there are 5 Sundays in this month once again.

Last month emotions gradually grew more intense with the last week likely to be very volatile and fingers burnt. On with the saga.

 

The week beginning the 1st April seems to be even worse that last week. Venus has moved into Taurus and the Sun and Mercury are conjunct, as are Mars and Saturn.  The Moon forms a temporary T-Square at the weekend with Uranus and Venus causing pressure upon Pluto.  There is only the one line of ease in the chart between Pluto and Jupiter.

 

Cardinal has lost a sign to Fixed but still totally dominates the Modal scene whilst the only change in the Elemental scene is that Water has lost a sign to Air with Earth still the major player.

It looks as if attitudes will have hardened, especially as it seems a weekend blow up is most probable and becoming an attitude changer.

 

Counsellors – I think Clients are not likely to hear you at all this week but be totally absorbed in their anger and misery.

 

Healers – Earth energy is available and if subtly used can be very powerful in outcome. Wisdom will have to prevail.

 

  The week of the 08th April sees Venus moving away from Uranus and the Sun and Mercury moving quickly apart.  Mars and Saturn have also begun to move apart but are still regarded as being conjunct.  They have formed lines of ease with Venus and with Neptune.

 

The Modal scene is unchanged Air has lost its only sign to Earth.

There is a sense of relief even if that is only because of denial of issues not resolved or gone temporarily away. There is still a feeling of wanting to ‘do’ something about all of this.

 

Counsellors – You should be able to pick up a few pieces this week but be careful not to say ‘I told you so’. That will only set things back dramatically.

 

Healers – The dearth of Air and dominance of Cardinal is going to set things awry. Patients may not be able to ‘stomach’ situations and cause all manner of psychosomatic complaints.  Stomach and Spleen meridians will have to be closely watched.

The week beginning the 15th April reveals a further easing of the situation with Neptune, Jupiter and Pluto forming a minor Trine, but notice also Jupiter challenging Venus.  Of special note see Mercury now apparently stationary  in the heavens.

 

The Modal scene is still unchanged but Fire has lost its lead by losing a sign to Fire.

There is a degree of congruence in individuals that was not present last week, although it could be at the expense of femininity or sensitivity. I still wouldn’t like to get on the wrong side of individuals.

 

Counsellors – If you can use the masculine attitudes emerging then perhaps they can be moulded towards making a more positive stance towards understanding or even closure of unresolved issues.

 

Healers – That dearth of Air is going to be a major itch that will not go away this week. You will have to work hard to balance energies this week.

  The week beginning 22nd April shows the Sun now in Taurus and forming a line of ease with Saturn. The minor Trine has disappeared.  Mars no longer challenges the Sun or Uranus. Mercury is now moving forwards in the heavens but Saturn has turned retrograde and Pluto is stationary.

 

At long last Cardinal has lost a sign to Fixed but fire has lost two signs, one to Earth and the other to Water.

It is all reactive with little actual thought going into the easing of any situation. People are truly the slaves to  their emotions. The weekend is likely to be very emotionally changeable.

 

Counsellors – I don’t think you will be able to do anything towards denting Clients jaundiced outlooks. That shouldn’t stop you from trying though.

 

Healers – I doubt you will be able to do much to change the uneven energetic balance even if you want to. It will be like bashing your head against the proverbial stone if you try.

The week beginning 29th April and it looks as if a definite change is beginning to take place. Venus has moved into Gemini but appears to be unaspected. Pluto is now retrograde.

 

 

 

Cardinal has lost another sign, this time to Mutable, whilst Earth has lost a sign to Air.

Individuals will probably not know why they feel the way they do but suddenly there is an element of karma, fate or destiny in the air. Accepting one’s lot in life might also be one way of talking about it.

 

Counsellors – You should be able to work much better this week than last but even so there is little sign of much progress.

 

Healers – Your wisdom and perseverance should begin to show fruit this week.

Is all this struggle really worth it?
