APRIL ASTROLOGICAL UPDATE
by Marci McCaffery
ARIES (March 21-April 20)
It’s spring! The familiar signs of young seedlings begin to emerge signaling new cycles of growth. We have entered the season of rebirth, rejuvenation, and renewal. In the cosmic realms new beginnings are also indicated, as we welcome the sign of Aries.
In numerology, this month is represented by the number “1” (4 + 2+0+1+3 =10) (10/1). This number tends to be called a lucky compound number which usually indicates financial success. Ruled by the “SUN”, it governs creativity, inventiveness, inspiration, and independence. As with all numbers, the number “1” brings forth both blessings and challenges. Confidence, vitality and a self-starter attitude characterize this vibration. The challenge requires the courage to individualize and the instinct to blaze new pathways.
The Martian energy that rules Aries is forceful, assertive and impulsive. Our goal is to be the pioneer, as we harvest the seeds we planted in the past three months. It’s time to be out there, to be seen and to be heard, as we create more of what is possible for our lives. Those born under this sign are noted for their fine leadership and take-charge qualities. We can embrace these energies within ourselves, as we forge ahead to reach our goals. Whatever house is represented by the sign of Aries in our natal chart, will reflect new beginnings for us personally. The key is to listen to our intuitive wisdom.The Aries New Moon, on the 10th creates the potential for combustible outbursts. The transiting Sun creates a planetary configuration with Mars, Venus and Uranus, all in the sign of Aries.
This fiery combination has the potential to provoke anger and aggression. The Sabian symbol for this New Moon at 21 degrees Aries emphasizes the need to channel our energy appropriately. We are advised to think before we take action.
Potent Pluto begins its yearly retrograde journey backwards on the 12th. This five-month cycle (4/12 to 9/20/13) presents the opportunity to transcend our inner conflicts concerning authority, our careers, and our goals. This requires that we overcome our fears and limitations. An increased sensitivity to issues of power highlights the need for transformation and evolutionary change.
On April 25th, a Lunar Eclipse, at 5 degrees Scorpio, intensifies the normal effects of the Full Moon. The Sabian symbol for this Lunar Eclipse reflects a massive, rocky shore resisting the pounding of the sea. We are asked us to go to our very core, to find that place of ultimate strength and certainty.
On April 12th, status quo, Saturn forms a quincunx with revolutionary Uranus representing a struggle between obligation VS freedom. Flexibility is recommended to avoid high levels of stress. We are integrating what still works from the past, with new possibilities for the future.

AN EVENING WITH SHMAYA
A channeled Language of Light
enliven the Sacred Union between YOUR Body and Soul
with JoAnne Palladino, Energy Healer and Channel
Monday, April 29, 2013. 7 – 9pm. $20.
CLICK HERE to pre-pay $20 for this class.
We are all being touched by the changes taking place on our planet. It is all in divine order to shift old patterns, allowing us to no longer live in fear, thereby aligning us to live from a place of love. This change holistically affects our physical, emotional and spiritual bodies. To accelerate the self-healing/awakening process involves embracing the totality of who we are by bringing awareness, love, and acceptance to ourselves. It is the sacred union between body and soul that allows transformation to unfold. This transformational process involves the dance between the ego and the soul. The soul is ready to awaken but the ego, riddled with fear, stops us from stepping into the unknown.
To support your transformation you are invited to attend this gathering with Shmaya, a channeled Language of Light, to receive healing, guidance and blessings through the sound and vibration of words that are being channeled that will reach beyond the body and transforms your overall well-being.
Shmaya, which is an Aramaic word, meaning “oneness in all”, is channeling through JoAnne coming in the form of a collective consciousness. The sound and vibration of the words within this language transmit a variety of healing qualities, touching people on a deep level resulting in a sense of profound peace.
JoAnne Palladino has been in the holistic healing arts since 2002. She is a Reiki Master/Teacher and Channel for Shmaya, a Language of Light. Since JoAnne began channeling Shmaya it became clear that Shmaya is here to reach the masses to support the awakening and healing of each of us and Mother Earth. The intention is to open our heart center to nurture self-love and to live from that place of complete and unconditional self-acceptance. JoAnne’s private practice is in Denver where she sees clients privately and holds groups and retreats throughout the year.

How often do you stand back and examine your relationship? Do you ever enlist the help of your partner to improve the state of your union, or do you just stew on your own?
This month is a good time to re-examine your mutual path on the relationship trail.
All that we do in life is guided, consciously or subconsciously, by our emotions. From the clothes we wear to the partners we choose, the jobs we seek and the banal reasons we accept as to why we should settle for less.
One of the greatest challenges we face is the belief that our knowledge is ‘right’ and it often becomes a major struggle in relationships. Each partner perceives the other as ‘the accuser’ and now refuses to honor the Love that still exists between them-left unchecked, this can only lead to disaster.
Join Mario this month to explore the spiritual teachings behind relationship compromise, betrayal, adultery, toxic emotions and wise, healthy choices.
Call 303-758-9113 to register for all or any of these classes.
PLANETARY ENERGIES AND THE MAJOR ARCANA
by Bruce Johnson
Astrologically, the Sun, Moon, and eight planets exhibit affinities to those cards of a like nature contained within the twenty two cards of the Major Arcana. These ten orbs radiate dual spiritual energies that express both positive and negative polarities. Each planet is attuned to two cards of the Major Arcana, with the Sun and Uranus symbolizing the triple nature of manifestation and corresponding to three cards each.
Pluto, Neptune, and Uranus, combine to form the three-in-one trinity of invisible spirit. Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, the Sun, Venus, Mercury, and the Moon, reflect the seven color rays and the seven-fold nature of life expressed in form or matter. Combining the three with the seven makes the sacred number 10, symbolized by the ancients in the 10 spheres of our solar system, the 10 globes of the Kabbalistic Sephirothic Tree, and the 10 dots in The Tetractys of Pythagoras.
Within the upper triangle of spirit, Pluto substituting for the hidden planet Vulcan has the Death card as its positive expression, and The Devil card as its passive manifestation. Mystical Neptune shows its positive polarity through The World card and its negative polarity in The Star. Uranus relates to The Magician in its active or positive aspect, The Tower in its passive or negative aspect, and The Hanged Man in its neutral or balanced nature.
Among the remaining 7 planets indicating matter, Saturn is actively expressed in The Hermit card, and passively demonstrated in the Justice card. The expansive planet Jupiter finds its positive correlation in the Temperance card, while The Hierophant signifies the negative expression of Jupiter energy. Assertive Mars expresses active attunement in The Chariot and passive attunement in the card called The Emperor. The life-giving Sun corresponds to The Sun card in its positive expression, The Fool card as its negative expression, and the Wheel of Fortune card as the third or neutral pole of its triple nature. Venus in her masculine form is the Strength card and in her feminine form is the Empress card. The positive mode of Mercury is shown in the Judgment card while The Lovers card shows Mercury’s negative polarity. Lastly, Luna the Moon shines actively through The High Priestess card and passively through The Moon card.
