April 2nd brings the final conjunction between Mercury and Neptune in Pisces. The first conjunction occurred on February 19th, and there was another on March 24th (when Mercury was Rx). This suggests ongoing questions about a fantasy, beautiful words or ultimate idea. The layers of truth and illusion have been shifting but now you should see clarification. Neptune can completely dissolve what’s false or outdated. Or, it can expose something crucial.
On April 4th, Pluto crosses the Capricorn South Node. Issues from the deep past will be excavated and purged. Confrontations with old rules, fears and authority figures will be designed to trigger a complete death and transformation of limiting structures. In some cases you may encounter results that confirm or take away your power.
The April 5th New Moon in Aries is a bold new start, but it will be somewhat restricted by a square to Saturn in Capricorn.

This can grow and flourish if you’re ready to make the effort.
