Check the Power Moon Days column to find out when the Moon will be passing through your star sign this month.  You should feel particularly 'in tune' on these days and activities will proceed smoothly for you.

And if you know which sign the Moon was in when you were born, note the 2-3 days each month when the Moon will be in that sign. This is your 'lunar return' and the natural energies of this period will resonate with your own personal energy.  For example, if you were born with the Moon in Libra, you should experience feelings of harmony, balance and creativity when the transiting Moon is in Libra.

Serious moon watchers might like to purchase a Moon Calendar from the Stella Starwoman Store.  These calendars list the exact time of day when the moon moves from one zodiac sign to the next and help you organise your life using moon cycles and lunar planning to achieve optimum emotional and physical balance.

APRIL 2015



Happy birthday Aries - here’s wishing you a wonderful year ahead! April is an action-packed month with three planets plus the karmic South Node all travelling through your section of the zodiac. The Sun and South Node in Aries are flanked by communication planet Mercury and revolutionary Uranus forming a golden triangle with lucky Jupiter in Leo and practical Saturn in Sagittarius. Now is the time to forge ahead with your plans, particularly after the 19th April with the Aries new moon and Jupiter moving forwards again. The South Node could bring people from the past back into your life, while the full moon eclipse on the 4th April puts the focus firmly on marriage and partnership and more specifically on the give and take important in any close relationship.  If you’re single, this blood moon eclipse could bring someone special into your life or reveal a new life path you are destined to follow.



Relationship planets Venus and Mars are both in Taurus this month making relationships a major focus. Venus in Taurus will motivate you to look your best, eat, drink and make merry, while Mars in Taurus promotes energy, drive and sex appeal. You should feel particularly confident and charismatic, especially in the first half of April, so head off on a shopping spree, book a massage or invite friends round for dinner and drinks.    If you enjoy nature and the great outdoors, go for a bushwalk or camping trip and recharge your batteries. And if you have some difficult or time-consuming task to tackle, know that you have the staying power to complete the work. Lucky Jupiter continues his year-long journey through your home sector making the first part of 2015 (until August) an excellent time to buy or renovate property or spend quality time with close family members. Build that new garden fence, give the lounge room a fresh coat of paint or start looking for your dream home!



Relationships continue to preoccupy your thoughts with Saturn’s recent move into your house of partnership for a three year stint.  Those who have built solid relationships will benefit in the form of greater commitment - engagement, marriage, moving in together or birth of a child, while those whose relationships are shaky are likely to experience break-ups or painful epiphanies. Relationship planet Venus will be in Gemini in the second half of April, so if you’re looking to meet someone new, now is the time to get out and about and strut your stuff.  On the 4th April there is a full moon eclipse in Libra that will help you see things with greater clarity and uncover the truth. This eclipse could bring a new relationship into your life or help reveal new creative talents and pathways. And finally with both Venus and Mars in your house of secrets and unconscious matters until mid-April, you might feel like spending some time alone to meditate, mull things over and chill out!



A blood moon eclipse in your home sector on the 4th April could force a sudden change in your living situation which is likely to affect both your career and your relationship. You may decide to move out, sell your home or go travelling or perhaps the family dynamics will change due to some reason outside your control. Sometimes eclipses bring loss and apparent misfortune – if this is the case for you, try and look at the lesson behind the event. As one door closes, another usually opens. This full moon eclipse marks the end of a 19 year cycle, so look back in time to 1996 and reflect on all that you have learned so you can carry these lessons forward onto your newly emerging path.  Fortunately, lucky Jupiter is now in your financial sector, suggesting that the first part of 2015 will be a favourable time money-wise and the April new moon on the 19th in your career sector could open up some interesting professional opportunities. You seem to be at the right place at the right time in the days following this new moon, so investigate any and all career offers, and put the feelers out for new opportunities.  Finally, pay particular attention to your health and get plenty of rest as your energy reserves could be a little low with serious Saturn in your health sector forcing you to slow down and take stock.
Leo 1st &
Action planet Mars has recently joined relationship planet Venus in your career sector.  Venus’s charm and charisma will take you far, helping you impress colleagues and superiors in the work environment, but with Mars, it’s important that you also take the initiative in work-related matters.  And if you’re experiencing conflict at work (Mars is after all the god of war!) take action to resolve the problem, which in extreme cases may mean leaving your job and making a fresh start.  You could also be dreaming of distant horizons this month with a fiery Aries stellium in the part of your birth chart relating to overseas contacts, travel, study, education and spiritual and religious matters.  Expect some new, exciting beginning in one or more of these areas and with lucky Jupiter in Leo until August and practical Saturn in fellow fire sign Sagittarius, you can be sure that whatever you start now has the best possible chance to flourish over the coming months.

1st-3rd &

Eclipses are powerful cosmic events heralding new beginnings, a time to complete unfinished business and a chance to express your true nature.  This month a stellium of planets in Aries and a full moon eclipse on the 4th will light up your money and investment houses offering you opportunities to increase your income or spend money on something you’ve always wanted.  The eclipse will highlight issues relating to self-worth and self-esteem making you question the way you value yourself or how others value you. If you’re not happy with what you see, commit to making some positive changes.  And with Venus and Mars both in your house of travel and study, you might like to spend some money on an exciting trip or going back to school to learn some new skill or even study for a new career. Finally, practical Saturn, lord of karma has recently entered your home sector for a three year visit.   During this time you would do well to concentrate on domestic and family matters.  This could include buying a new home, renovating or decorating your existing home, moving or selling your home, improving relationships within your family or taking on more duties and responsibility for other family members.  The whole purpose of this transit is to build a strong foundation to support you in the years to come.



Mark your diary for 4th April – Easter Saturday. The full moon is in Libra and if the skies are clear you’ll be able to see a blood red lunar eclipse, visible at 8pm in Western Australia, 10 pm in Queensland and 11 pm in Victoria and New South Wales. This eclipse will shine the light on relationships of all kinds, helping you see things more clearly and uncover the truth. The Aries-Libra polarity deals with the issue of maintaining a sense of self without being selfish (Aries) vs the joys of being in relationship without sacrificing the self (Libra). The eclipse could even bring a new relationship or new life path you are destined to follow. Lunar energy is also linked to emotions, security needs and habit patterns. Major life transitions often occur under an eclipse as old, outworn parts of our lives are suddenly eclipsed, making room for new people, new ideas and exciting change. Meanwhile lucky Jupiter continues to provide ample opportunities to socialise and network right through to August, so make the most of it. And as mentioned last month, Saturn has recently moved into your house of communication and community for a three year visit making this the perfect time to go back to study, write a book or blog, launch your online radio show, learn a new language or embark on any other communication or community project that requires dedication and hard work.   



With relationship planets Mars and Venus in your house of marriage and partnership in the first half of April, it’s time to focus on strengthening your relationship and spend quality time with your partner.  The fallout from the Uranus-Pluto square continues to push you to break down the old and make room for the new. Pluto represents the potentially destructive forces of nature (including human nature) and is the ruler of Scorpio. Those Scorpios who have the courage to let go and trust, to embrace the changes and face their inner demons and shadow self will receive the gifts of growth, wisdom and authenticity as new doors open and old ones close. Lucky Jupiter continues to offer you new opportunities in work and career - this favourable influence will continue until August, so make the most of it.  Meanwhile, Saturn has recently entered your money house forcing you to tighten the belt, or at the very least, take a good hard look at how you earn and spend your money and what you truly value.   Sensible decisions made now will benefit you down the track and with Saturn in this part of your birth chart until the end of 2017, you have plenty of time to make any necessary changes. 



A stellar stellium in Aries plus a new moon in your romance, pleasure and creativity sector promises a fine month ahead, so make the most of these favourable planetary energies. If you’re working on a creative project, you should feel particularly inspired, especially from the 9th onwards, when ruling planet Jupiter goes direct. Love and romance are also a highlight this month – April is an excellent time to conceive a child; declare your love; socialise with friends or try some new, fun activities. And as mentioned last month, 2015-2017 is a special period for all Sagittarians with Saturn helping you accomplish long term goals and build firm foundations. Saturn asks you to step up, work hard, make sacrifices and focus on long term, rather than short term results.  Look after your physical health as these profound changes will force you to slow down and conserve energy.   The full moon eclipse on the 4th falls in your house of friendship and networking, so you could find yourself taking a long, hard look at the people you are choosing to spend time with.  Make sure their goals and interests are aligned with yours and you can’t go wrong!



April is an action packed month Capricorn, so now is the time to display those famous Capricorn traits – cool-headedness, logical and objective approach with feet planted firmly on the ground to weather the storm.  Firstly there’s a massive stellium in your home and domestic sector and with Uranus conjunct the Sun and South Node, seriously anything could happen on the home front.  Secondly there’s a lunar eclipse on the 4th April in your career sector – eclipses have a habit of getting rid of old stuff to push you to make new beginnings, even if you don’t want to! And thirdly, both your home and career sectors are challenged in a completely unsubtle manner by transformational Pluto, which as you probably know is in Capricorn.  What all this means is that if you’re engaging in any inauthenticity or unnecessary compromise either at home or work, you will be exposed and forced to change! And as mentioned last month, ruling planet Saturn recently shifted into your house of secrets and unconscious matters for a three year stay during which your focus will shift from the outer world to the inner landscape.   Public status and achievement no longer have the same importance or offer the same satisfaction during this period.   You may feel like spending more time on your own, writing, meditating, going on retreat or pilgrimage or developing some new interest or aspect of yourself.  Your intuition or inner guidance is very strong, so take careful note of hunches, dreams or other messages from the unconscious mind. 




In these early months of 2015 the Uranus-Pluto square continues to push you to break down and release the old to make room for the new. Those Aquarians who have the courage to let go and trust, to embrace the changes and face their inner demons and shadow self will receive the gifts of growth, wisdom and authenticity with new doors opening as old ones close.  The full moon eclipse on the 4th April highlights your ninth solar house. Eclipses herald endings and new beginnings, so now is the time to plan that interstate or overseas trip, or perhaps go back to school to study something new and inspirational. This would be a good month to reflect on your belief systems and how much your outer life reflects your inner convictions and beliefs.   Meanwhile lucky Jupiter in Leo continues his year long journey (until August) through your relationship sector bringing good fortune and new opportunities for love to blossom.   Jupiter in this position can also bring new clients and business partners to those who are self-employed. Finally April is the perfect month to spend beautifying your home with Venus and Mars in your domestic sector.



Being a creative type, money management is not usually top of your list of things to focus on – you’d rather leave that job to others - but this month you have no choice.  A super stellium in Aries in your money house, a new moon in your money house and a full moon eclipse in your investment sector will force you to deal with all matters financial, including money you earn, credit cards, bank loans, student loans, insurance payouts, mortgages, taxes, inheritances and divorce settlements.  And with the Sun conjunct erratic Uranus and the karmic South Node, literally anything could happen! Your ruling planet Jupiter makes a beautiful angle to the Sun in the first week of April which could help the cash flow along. And if you need some extra money, you should be able to find weekend or evening work to help ends meet. Jupiter starts travelling forward again on 9th April after a four month retrograde stint which will help boost your luck and happiness.  Try and take some time out over the Easter break to recharge your batteries – the cosmic energy is fire and earth based this month - what some astrologers call ‘the steamroller combination’.  This combo doesn’t suit your more laid-back and emotional approach, so rather than swimming against the tide, rest up on the beach!
