Astrology for Healers and Therapists – April 2022

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.

Last month was almost the epitome of suspicion and defensive thinking with hardly any progressive movement.  This month is quite a surprise.

The week beginning the 3rd April

There is very little difference in the colours of the planets positions from last week but there is a breath-taking moment when the chart is first viewed.  Acknowledging the chart is simplified for our purpose of interpretation of such a general overview, note there are no aspects to speak of!!!

Cardinal 3 – Fixed 5 – Mutable 2

Fire 2 – Earth 3 – Air 3 – Water 2

The modal scene is unchanged from last week but Air has lost a sign to Earth.

This would seem to be a pivotal time all round.  I have never seen anything like this before and where there have been breath holding moments over the last three months this takes the biscuit.  Whether the ongoing situation will be positive or negative is impossible to say from this chart so for the Sunday at least there is a shocked standstill.

Counsellors – Hopefully the situation will change as the week progresses but initially you will be flogging a dead horse.  Don’t beat yourself up about it.

Healers – Just as with the Counsellors, don’t try to hard for you will be trying to move a mountain on your own, despite the seemingly reasonable balance of elements.

The week beginning 10th January

Uranus is still unaspected, as is Venus and also the Neptune/Jupiter conjunction.  There is a temporary T-Square on Mercury at the weekend but Mercury has formed a line of ease with the Mars / Saturn conjunction as has the Sun to the same conjunction.    

Cardinal 3– Fixed 4 – Mutable 2

Fire 3 – Earth 2 – Air 2 – Water 3            

Fixed has lost a sign to Mutable, whilst both Earth and Air have both lost a sign respectively to Fire and Water.

Although communication is going to be very difficult at least there is a knee jerk reaction to move things on from last week.  It doesn’t look too positive at this juncture but at least there is a will and energy to try. 

Counsellors –Deep feelings are being put on hold but you should be able to restart the stalled process.  Don’t challenge too strongly though or any gain will be immediately lost.

Healers –Surface situations will respond to any healing therapy but the deeper seated problems are best left untouched at the moment.

The week beginning 17th April

Mercury has moved into Taurus alongside Uranus and although there is a temporary joint challenge to the Moon there is also a strong line of ease formed with Venus.  Mars has moved into Pisces and lost its line of ease with Mercury leaving Saturn now unaspected.  The Sun has lost its line of ease with Saturn and is strongly challenged by Pluto.

Cardinal 2 – Fixed 4 – Mutable 4

Fire 1 – Earth 3 – Air 1 – Water 5

Cardinal has lost a sign to Mutable whilst Fire has lost two signs and Air one sign as Earth has gained one and Water gained two. 

Positional authority and personal egos are under fire this week. There could well be sudden reversals of fortune in the air.

Counsellors – Now is the time to challenge to gain compromise, with the emphasis on emotional motivation rather than rational thinking.

Healers – Everything seems to slide away as soon as you try to fix it.  However if you can sit back to some degree you should find ways forward that at first were hid from you.

The week beginning 24th April  

The Sun has moved into Taurus, and Mercury moved away from Uranus.  Neptune, Jupiter and Venus have formed a bundle that has in turn formed two lines of ease, one with Mercury and the other with Pluto, resulting in a minor trine.  Saturn is challenging Mercury.  The Sun is still challenged by Pluto but has formed a line of ease with Mars.  Uranus is challenged by the Moon.

Cardinal 1 – Fixed 5 – Mutable 4

Fire 0 – Earth 4 – Air 2 – Water 4

Cardinal has lost one sign to Fixed.  Fire has lost its sign to Earth and Water one sign to Air.     

This is a far more positive chart.  It looks as if things are being brought into the open, despite the discomfort that may ensue.  Feelings are likely to run high and far from smooth, but the outlook is definitely looking up.

Counsellors – – this is the best indication for progress that you may have seen for a long time.  Use the positive regard wisely and unstintingly. 

Healers –The lack of Fire could be a problem but don’t dwell on it too much.  Pay more attention to the good will and willingness to engage.

A vast, vast improvement. But what is going on in the world?!
