ASTROLOGY: April 2022


“We have learned so much… there still remains much to learn. We are not going in circles,
we are going upwards. The path is a spiral.” —Herman Hesse, Siddhartha

In mid-March we began a new cycle when we entered Aries at the spring equinox. As we grow our selves,
so we also attempt to grow humanity. The progression around the zodiac explains the growth.

Aries – Here I AM! Bursting onto the earthly plane, still with the remembrance of where we came from.
Taurus – I can touch, eat, throw things! Learning the right use of personal resources.
Gemini – there are two of us in the room; I must learn to communicate and share my toys!
Cancer – I recognize that I am part of a whole family in which negotiation
and respect must be learned; the Family of Man.
Leo – playing, showing off and falling in love for the first time; ultimately, unconditional love.
Virgo – the first recognition that this “other” part of me is Divine and the urgent need to nurture it.
Libra – the recognition that an Other is as important as I am;
the Sacred Marriage with the Highest Partner.
Scorpio – I get tested as to my commitment to that Other and to the Journey.
Sagittarius – I and my partner are One and now it is about learning focus, direction,
and discipline; the Path has so many distractions.
Capricorn – The ambition to climb to the peak of the mountain, fall at the feet of the Master.
Aquarius – after seeing the big picture, receiving enlightenment I need to share it with others, with All.
Pisces – when I realize this one lifetime is such a tiny drop in the bucket, it’s time to recapitulate, go deep inside, into the Mystery, to prepare for the next cycle. We can do better, always.
