Astrology for Healers and Therapists – April 2021

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 4 Sundays in this month once again.

During last month there was a gradual change from reaction to action, as people began to take stock of what was happening and began to take responsibility for themselves once again.  Let’s see if that continues.

The week beginning the 4th April

Mercury has moved into Aries and formed a line of ease with Pluto.  Mars has formed a line of ease with Jupiter and with the Sun / Venus conjunction.

Cardinal 5 – Fixed 3 – Mutable 2

Fire 3 – Earth 3 – Air 3 – Water 1

Cardinal has gained a sign from Mutable, whilst both Air and Water have each lost one sign going to Fire and Earth respectively.    

After the stagnation of the last few months there is a driving force to do something and be seen to do something.

Counsellors – It would be a good idea to help Clients check if their actions have any deleterious effect on friends or neighbours.

Healers – You might well be astounded at the power of positive thinking.  Make the most of it this week.

The week beginning 11th April

Pluto has swapped its line of ease for one of challenge to both Venus and the Sun.  Saturn no longer has its line of ease with Mars.  Jupiter now has formed a line of ease with the Sun.  The gathering in Aries is looking very strong and influential.

There is no change in the Modal situation, but Fire has gained a sign from Earth. 

Cardinal 5 – Fixed 3 – Mutable 2

Fire 4 – Earth 2 – Air 3 – Water 1

The action is hotting up and seemingly beneficial to all, except there could be a backlash that is sudden and powerful.

Counsellors –Perhaps words of caution could be employed to act as a brake if needed.

Healers – The backlash could spell personal angst if not taken into consideration.  Take care.

The week beginning 18th April

Venus has moved on into Taurus yet there remans a broad conjunction with the Sun and now Uranus.  Mercury is very much conjunct with the Sun.  Saturn has lost its line of ease with the Sun but formed a challenge with Venus.

Cardinal has lost a sign to Fixed whilst Fire has lost two signs, one to Earth and the other to Water. 

Cardinal 4 – Fixed 4 – Mutable 2

Fire 2 – Earth 3 – Air 3 – Water 2

It could well be a case of hitting a brick wall or banging one’s head against strong opposition.  There definitely seems to be trouble around that is not going to be easy to cope with.

Counsellors – Pouring oil on troubled waters may be the name of the game this week.  But is it supposed to be an appropriate professional role to adopt?

Healers – The Elements are well balanced but it looks as if there is likely to be a polarisation in all that you do.

The week beginning 25th April  

The Sun and Mercury have both moved into Taurus to form a awesome conjunction with Uranus and Venus.  This Bundle is challenged mightily by Saturn.  Mars’ influence is greatly diminished to a single line of ease with Jupiter and both Pluto and Neptune are seemingly unaspected.

Fixed has gained two signs, one from Cardinal and the other from Mutable.  Fire has lost both of its signs, both to Earth.

Cardinal 3 – Fixed 6 – Mutable 1

Fire 0 – Earth 5 – Air 3 – Water 2

What is going on?  There appears to be an extraordinary tension and lack of movement.  It is almost a clash of the Titans.  I wonder what this means in real terms.

Counsellors – Polarisation dictates a stalemate in your Client’s thinking.  Make sure it doesn’t do the same to you.

HealersNothing is really going to shift this week.  Make no promises and no one will be disappointed.
