I think it’s a little ironic and somewhat interesting that we are in the agrarian stretch of the zodiac, Aries to Taurus and of course, the big news is “Swine Flu” which broke on the cusp of Aries and Taurus, just over the hump of 4/20. If we look forward in time, and stay with the animal theme, then we can see some sort of resolution around this by June when we enter into the sphere of human interaction and Gemini, but beware the duality of “The Twins” as things aren’t always what they appear to be.

As we start the month off, Venus and Mars are still conjunct in Aries, though somewhat wide (four degrees) and will remain conjunct until the sixth, when they will begin to separate, however, the driving and martial energy supplied by these two planets in the sphere of relating and self-actualization is still quite profound. When Venus was retrograde, relationships from the past were resurrected for healing and review. Some of you might have even re-ignited an old flame to see if the spark was still there.

Well, as these two planets move forward, you’ll still have plenty of energy and passion to continue down that path, but once they shift into Taurus, the energy will cool and slow down to a more measured pace.

This is a fantastic time to start new projects, all around for all signs and as long as we don’t have to be quarantined, this is a terrific time to get things done. Don’t be afraid to take the lead, show the way or put yourself out there in some way that requires initiative. I would liken the next thirty days to that wide open stretch of Interstate I-5 cutting through the center of California where, if you’re careful, you can really hit the gas before you reach the incline of the grapevine. So think exercise program, diet resolution, re-energizing old projects, starting new ones, getting passionate about your life and life in general. It’s challenging when we have the backdrop of the plague constantly in our ear, but we are always challenged to be in this world and not of it. So be mindful of the collective situation, but don’t let it define you. Tune out from time-to-time and check in with what’s going on inside of you. What matters? What’s important? Get clear about these fundamental issues in your life and get to work in spite of the overall noise in the general environment. Don’t get sucked in by panic and fear.
With Mars in Aries, hysteria is like kerosene cocktail, just waiting to be lit. Take the energy in a different direction. Mars is action and will. Make it happen. Own your own reality.

On the other hand, Mercury goes retrograde on the 7th and it’s in wacky Gemini, which always screws with local travel, cars, car keys and miscommunication in the most mundane of circumstances, so get that extra set of key made, get repairs on the car now and then go forth and conquer.

    If you look at the pandemic of 1977, when H1N1 or Swine Flu re-emerged after a 20 year absence, there is no shift in age-related mortality pattern. The 1977 “pandemic” is, of course, not considered a true pandemic by experts today, for reasons that are not entierely consistent. It certainly was an antigenic shift and not an antigenic drift. As far as I have been able to follow the current events, the most significant factor seems to have been that most people, who were severely affected, were people with other medical conditions.
