After March's Uranus-Pluto Square, the Cardinal Signs won't enjoy another major event involving Libra, Aries and Capricorn. But on April 4, we experience a Lunar Eclipse at 14 degrees Libra, forming a Cardinal T-Square with Uranus-Sun and Pluto. Meanwhile, Jupiter at 12 degrees Leo trines Uranus-Sun, sextiles the Libra Moon and forms an inconjunct with Pluto. All of this carries the theme of transformation.

Those of you with Cardinal Sign planets between 12 and 16 degrees will experience a life-changing event whether that appears on the global canvas or in your personal life. If we look at the chart for the Lunar Eclipse, we also see a loose Grand Fire Trine involving Saturn, Jupiter, and Uranus with the Sun. We're all going to experience a surge of energy which in itself isn't a bad thing if we have an outlet to direct that energy. Imagine electricity with no place to go and the sparks that derive from misplaced electrical energy. A good use of that energy could come in the form of transforming the workplace or building new structure, especially with Pluto in Capricorn and Saturn in Sagittarius coming into play.
Signs most affected by the Lunar Eclipse are Aries, Libra and Capricorn, with Libra taking the emotional brunt and Aries acting impulsively for good or ill. While the Libra Full Moon reminds us to find balance in the areas of our lives where the eclipse impacts (look at the houses in your chart with Libra, Aries and Capricorn on the cusps). Marital problems could erupt at this time if both parties or even one party has repressed emotions as not to hurt the other person's feelings or out of fear of confrontation. Aries types want more freedom than usual especially with Jupiter in Leo coming into play (Fire Trine). Libras want a different sort of freedom that happens more on the intellectual level whereas, some Libras will demand space so that they can find their authentic selves.
On a global level, tensions erupt in cities, towns, provinces or countries with an Aries or Libra Ascendant, Moon or Sun (such as the city where I reside with has a Libra Ascendant at 17 degrees), especially with 12 to 16 degrees Libra or Aries. This tension will most likely involve justice and youth. Could even be university students returning from spring break only to be greeted by a tuition hike or some other type of bad news which leads to protest, most likely occurring over social media. This is just a potentiality.
Meanwhile, the asteroid Pallas (Greek Athena), hangs out in the Galactic Center at 29 degrees Sagittarius reminding us to close a cycle that started in ancient times or the era of wise women elders. This suggests to me that we find our solutions by going inward and connecting with the wise priestess in each of us, man or woman. Use intuition instead of logic now, strive for peace through sharing and cooperation and give up this idea that others are out to get us. Give up the idea of us verses them which always leads to battles of one kind or another.

Venus in Taurus forms a trine with Pluto at the beginning of April which segues into the Lunar Eclipse and so this is a fantastic time to get exercise, take care of bones, skin and teeth, as well as get grounded through hiking in the woods, mountain climbing and gardening. Farming goes well at this time, especially with crops that grow slowly underground such as root vegetables and I have an image of ginger root. This trine bodes well for body workers, especially chiropractors and massage therapists. You could see an influx of clients the first week of April, especially on the 4th and 5th.
No matter who you are or where your Natal planets land in your chart, the first two weeks of April either complete a transformation process that began around March 11 or bring new changes that affect you on a profound level. As always focus on the positive. Focus on what you can do and then do it. This Lunar Eclipse reminds us that each of us and our contributions to the Greater Good matter.
