Welcome to retrograde season, everyone! No need to panic, for it basically comes around at the same time every year. Jupiter started things off a couple of months ago, followed by Venus on March the 4th, and this month we shall see Saturn, Mercury and Pluto begin to backpedal as well. If you are thinking that this is déjà vu, it is not. Last year, it was Mars, not Venus, and we actually had a string of days where there were five planets retrograde at one time. That will not be happening this year. So, breathe a sigh of relief, because this year will be much easier to navigate.
As the month began, retrograde Venus went back into the sign of Pisces, where it is exalted, so the remainder of Venus retrogade will go a bit smoother. It will assume direct motion on the 15th, then re-enter the sign of Aries on the 28th. Let us not forget the shadow period which will take us more than halfway through the month of May.
I am glad everyone has been enjoying the Monday through Friday Featured Card of the Day. Currently, they are from the Monstarot deck by my friend, Joanna Nelson of Joanna Nelson Studio. This deck will be available for purchase in the next few weeks. Joanna’s adorable little monsters convey the meaning of each card and its energy in a way that anyone of any age can enjoy. As soon as I receive my own deck, I will be posting pictures to share with you. Do not forget to check out Joanna’s Facebook page, website and etsy shop. She is most famous for her cats and I have been occasionally sneaking them in on the daily meme which appears each morning at 7am EST.
Yes, Saturn, the taskmaster will be retrograde from April 6 through August 25. Apparently there is still a lesson or two we need to learn. This is only a difficult retrograde if you choose to make it so. You will find Tarot Guidance available for Saturn, Jupiter, Venus and Mercury on Patreon; these will make navigating retrograde season much easier.
On the 11th, we will have our annual Full Moon in Libra. This will be aspected in several ways, some really good, some not so good. So we shall call this one a mixed bag, and it will likely bring up relationship matters.
Also on the 11th, our good friends over at 78 Tarot are launching a very special project. They will be holding a Facebook event, to coincide with their Kickstarter, beginning on this date. You may want to hop over there if you are a lover of Tarot cards as they will be unveiling the completed artwork for all 78 cards in their upcomong deck, Astral – Tarot in Space. Even if you have never been a backer on Kickstarter before, you are invited to participate and be a backer for this fourth in a collectible series of art collaborations that comprises the decks of 78 Tarot. Founder, Kayti Stewart, has been very hard at work coming up with the additional perks which can be yours by getting in on the ground level. Delphine, Trish and Joanna have also been working very hard preparing for this event, so don’t forget to mark your calendar!
We have a few other sign changes happening this month. The sun will enter Taurus on the 19th, Pluto retrogrades from April 20 through September 28, Mars will enter Gemini on April 21 and the New Moon in Taurus will occur on April 26.
This month’s Patreon drawing is for a $50.00 voucher in the 78 Tarot store, good on anything.
