April Astro Report – Welcome to Aries as the 2021 Revolution Heats UP!

Greetings fAriesriends as we venture forth into our new natural year as our Sun now travels through the dynamic sign of new beginnings…ARIES

I hope you were able to enjoy some respite from the chaotic 2021 energies during Pisces time, so you are refreshed and ready to move forward once more.
Interesting to note that the Pisces water theme is up big time here in Oz with once in 100 year catastrophic floods embracing the entire East Coast and Red Center- I have had 20 inches of rain here on the Gold Coast & feeling so lucky to be on my quiet hill as I watch the river plain below me completely submerged!
These are drought breaking rains and remind us of the extremes as this time last year Australia was burning…devastatingly!
Also the result of the La Nina cycle this year as Mother Earth’s natural systems  replenish and regenerate.
Yep it’s been a very full 2021 on since Saturn and Jupiter opened their new cycle in Aquarius right?
The fresh wave of revolutionary impulse is loud and clear in oh so many ways!
Quick rundown for late March & into April and I’ll go into more detail in the main section…

The Full Moon in Libra on March 28th with Sun in Aries opposite Moon in Libra @ 8 degrees so check your chart to see where this falls. It reflects an emotional desire to work in balanced partnerships as we promote our individual ideas and interests. Harmonious Venus now also in Aries shines her light on on the Sun, plus Mars in Gemini adds a bright creative spark to release ideas and have confident healthy conversations. A very nice full Moon folks!
Fast-talking Mercury is speedy this month and leaps into Aries on April 4th adding another dose of confidence to words, with the caution to avoid angry retorts & channel frustration into positive forums to motivate action for change.
Then we have New Moon on April 12th @ 22 degrees Aries with Venus & Ceres challenged by Pluto in Capricorn, representing the power & control wielded by patriarchal systems and institutions. Expressed through Mars in Gemini, this is the archetypal Feminine asserting herself, speaking up & challenging the patriarchy! More about this in the main section…
Venus’ move into Taurus on April 14th brings a gentler flow but for most of the month ahead, it’s a time for all things new, courage and action…and finding your VOICE!

Aries Ingress 2021Welcome to your your quick Astrology lesson as we check out The Aries Ingress chart – the moment when Sun stepped into Aries on the “Vernal Equinox” – when day & night are of equal length as the Sun shines directly above the Equator – and the seasons turn.
This is our true New Year folks, as we begin the 12 fold process of the Zodiac round and this chart becomes the chart for the WHOLE YEAR ahead!
So Sun is up in House 11 with Venus Goddess of Love in Pisces to his right. Thus the primary creative drive for the year requires compassionate service to support  humanitarian & social justice reform and change.
This is also supported with both Jupiter AND Saturn in Aquarius – the sign of revolution and change. Indeed Jupiter is EXACTLY on the top of the 10th House bringing huge power to expand human rights, equal rights areas, the growth of grass roots movements to challenge elite systems. It also brings a year of big moves in technology innovations and advances.
OK so let’s look at Mars as he is the ‘ruler of Aries’ so drives the Sun with his force. Mars is in Gemini along with the Moon in the 12th House bringing a fresh burst of ideas, information and conversations to stimulate these changes.
The strong Pisces theme in this chart (Venus & Neptune & Mercury in Pisces) + Mars & Moon in 12th House (ruled by Pisces) impels us to integrate our logical mind with our intuitive mind and learn to ‘go with the flow’ rather than push and shove to get ahead.
We need to be curious, reflective, and versatile and aware that the insights and ideas we share are seeds we sow that must contribute to improving and empowering our community…both locally and globally.
While we are eager for fresh starts and new ground to explore this year, it is wise to review our goals, analyze plans and strategies, and consider and assimilate information gained.
Keep an open mind, consider different points of view, and stay flexible and adaptable as you engage in new endeavors.

Our 2021 Revolution is heating up!
I my January letter I introduced the 2 main players who will forge a brand new era in global evolution – Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius. Here’s some quotes from my article before I move on to talk about how indeed this huge revolutionary force is already giving us dividends!

Jupiter joins Saturn In Aquarius-Change is in the AIR!
Within weeks of the final meeting in of Pluto, Jupiter ,and Saturn in Capricorn in December 2020 both Jupiter & Saturn change sign into Aquarius and meet together on December 21st on the Vernal Equinox. This announces a brand new 20-year Jupiter/Saturn cycle, in the revolutionary sign of Aquarius to move us forward to the next stage of personal and planetary evolution.

Jupiter and Saturn meet every 20 years, but this time is uber rare as they are moving into a fresh cycle of their story in AIR signs (previous cycle was 1226), and over the coming decades will lead us to the true dawning of The Age of Aquarius! Thus in 2021 we are poised between the past and the future, as we farewell a 220 year period of their meetings in the EARTH signs, which has driven the intrinsic urge for owning and possessing and controlling material world goodies. It’s all been about business and commerce and making money right?

Aquarius opens a completely new ‘magnetic field’ energy, where the instinctive urge for freedom and liberation will drive us to reject old models and systems…and invent new ones. It’s the new order emerging from the old order breaking down. Our keywords are inclusiveness, cohesion, co-operation & co-creation.

AIR rules communication, networking, technologies, breath, group connections, debate, ideas, and the flow & spread of information. We’re moving in to a startling era where new technologies and revolutionary ideas will bring warp speed changes so we must be willing to step up and embrace change as we let go of the past. It is time to awaken your urge to invent, innovate, experiment, be original and unique. It is a year when we are ready ‘for the ideas whose time has come’!!!

Aquarius is ruled by the modern planet Uranus -the God of Chaos who ‘gives birth to new archetypes’ to stimulate the constant process of creation as old Saturn forms and structures outlive their usefulness. Thus his process brings us revolutions and periods of upheaval as the old order resists the Aquarian impulse.

Jupiter PLUS Saturn heading into Aquarius will launch a new phase of reform and change collectively, with an increase in ‘civil disobedience’ and activism in response to the growing authoritarianism. He will bring a shift away from traditional business/government to a society that’s principled and based on sound values. It’s about freedom, people power, and grass roots movements, rather than entitlement and elite rule.

So here is Oz we are in the midst of a huge meltdown of our ruling Right Wing Government . It began with a young woman reporting she had been raped in the office of the Defence Minister – yes in our Parliament House. It was subsequently ‘covered up’ and she resigned, until gathering the courage to report the event. Her report then gave the courage to another woman to report her rape by our Attorney General (yes the highest legal office in the land) when he was 17 and she was 16. It is a very complicated situation as she has since tragically taken her own life after not receiving support from the police in the matter.

Our PM decided to believe his AG rather then the lady. The Defence Minister was reported as saying the young woman staffer was a lying cow’. Both Ministers are now on ‘mental health leave’. This week we have reports of after hours ‘sex workers’ on call to Ministers & Staffers plus a FB group who share graphic sex pics from within Minister’s offices plus a sitting Minister trolling women in his own electorate! Yes I am not kidding! And still our PM will not sack any of them or call for investigations, as his Government only holds power by ONE seat! It has become an open farce.

As a result of all the deplorable lack of unaccountability, something amazing occurred on Monday 8th March as over 100,000 women marched in all capital cities and many regional towns under the #enoughisenough banner. It was a grassroots event organized by a few women on social media in very short time and attracted the support of very high profile women from all walks of life. With approx 20,000 women and some male allies outside Parliament House our PM refused to step out and meet them.

Since then a huge groundswell is growing with thousands of women reporting their sexual and other forms of abuse stories. And it is not going away despite our government’s attempts to sweep it under the carpet. BTW this Government has an appalling record of graft and corruption. Our PM is  Hillsong Christian who became a good chum of Donald Trump…and is only in power because of Rupert Murdoch. BTW there is currently a Royal Commission underway here examining the inappropriate influence of the Murdoch Media group on our democracy. Yep it’s all going on ‘down under’ right now!

The oppression of women and minority groups is universal. It is the very foundation of Patriarchy and Empires since ancient times. We are currently experiencing a direct confrontation with this principal. HOORAH!!

I include this quote from our main anchor woman on national broadcaster ABC 7.30 Report – Leigh Sales. She is highly respected and rarely shares her personal views but recently she gave this interview.

Leigh Sales (ABC) Asks Why Powerful Who Abuse Trust Keep Getting Away With It March 2021
“We are seeing women say that they have had enough. They have had enough of people in power using the system to enshrine their power and keep women as less powerful. But I also feel that that is fitting in a broader context about awareness of power generally, because I feel like every single night when I’m hosting 7.30, that I see stories in which people in power are exploiting or taking advantage of people with less power.

“In many cases, people that they have been paid to care for, or have expressly said that they promise to serve and I see it all the time, every night on the show. I feel like I’m constantly asking myself this question ‘did something change in this country?’ Did something change, that the standard for behaviour now is not ‘I have to do the right thing’ or ‘I have to do what I promised I said I would do’, but instead ‘how much can I get away with?’
“I think that, from what I hear people say on 7.30 Australians are sick of this kind of situation.
“They’re sick of banks gouging their accounts with fees and charges while somehow missing large scale money laundering, that’s funneling millions of dollars overseas to terrorism or child exploitation.
“They’re sick of highly profitable nursing homes taking money from families, and then neglecting or abusing mum or dad.
“They’re sick of financial advisors who promise to take people’s life savings and help them pay for their retirement, knowing the entire time that they’re fleecing them.
“I think the unemployed, students, pensioners were pretty sick of being harassed by a powerful government department to repay debt that they never actually even owed in the first place.     “People are tired of private health insurance constantly upping fees, then you go to a specialist and they go ‘oh sorry it’s not covered by private health’.
“They’re sick of telecommunications companies that promised the world when you sign up for the Internet, and then when you’re having a problem with it and it won’t work, they won’t pick up their phone to answer your call in any kind of timely fashion.
“They’re sick of rich multinational companies underpaying their workers and then not even having the common courtesy to ring people when those workers are killed on the job.
“They’re sick of priests abusing children in their care, or scoutmasters. They’re sick of the priests who cover up for those kinds of priests.    “They’re sick of 59 year-old teachers who rape 15 year-old students.
“They’re sick of government after government telling people that they’ll close the gap on Indigenous life expectancy and then decade after decade it stubbornly remains at about 20 years. You deserve 20 years less life in Australia, apparently, if you’re Indigenous.
“They’re sick of politicians acting like public money is their own private fund and giving development deals to their mates or grants to their political allies and in the worst cases are taking kickbacks to line their own pockets.
“They’re sick of film producers, who have won life’s lotto and yet still treat young actors like they should be molested and manipulated.
“Even the Australian Cricket team let down the ordinary Australian fan with cheating and ball-tampering. You can’t even trust as an Australian that you won’t be made a fool of by the Australian cricket team

“I mean, this is night after night on 7.30 that we have these stories and I just think it is sickening to see this constant situation where powerful people and institutions exploit less powerful people.
“And I think from what the public says to me on the street, that they are sick of people coming on my show, when they get found out and saying, ‘oh, I’m so sorry, I had no idea this was happening – can’t take any more questions about it, because we’ve commissioned a report into it’.   And then that report, when it comes through, sits in a bottom drawer, gathering dust and the same thing happens again and then they commission another report. It’s well past time that this kind of thing needs to change

“What do a lot of these stories that I’ve mentioned have in common? Who holds the levers of power, mostly, in this country? In boardrooms? In CEO suites? In the media? In governments? In cabinet? It’s men.   “And we are not doing a good enough job in this country, as you will see, any night when you watch 7.30, of looking after the least powerful members of our society.”

Very powerful spot on statements right? Here is to this amazing new era unfolding as we directly confront the old models based on white male privilege and power at the expense of people and planet! Bring it ON!
