The Twins are in the mood for socializing, catching up with friends and enjoying some recreational fun. The 26th brings a New Moon in earthy Taurus, your 12th solar house, so the ensuing two weeks bring plenty of things to contemplate, especially with Mercury retrograde. Combat recurring anxieties, fears, doubts, and lingering memories from the past that stop you from doing the things you want to do. Break down the walls that give you a feeling of restriction and trigger self-sacrificing mechanisms. Use this time positively to improve your inner soul through ways that help you grow emotionally and spiritually. Show compassion for those in need in hospitals and institutions.
Mercury your planetary ruler is still in a retrograde phase. Events that occurred last month will generate discussion from the 27th to the 30th. Clear those misunderstandings, and give consideration as to how your friends or love relationship can assist with your aspirations and future dreams. The Moon slips into your sign from the 28th to the 29th, which should revive your emotional vitality but at the same time put pressure on relationships and agreements.
The North Node/South Node axis, also known as the Dragon's Head and Dragon's Tail, is about to change signs and is particularly potent. The Moon's Nodes normally travel in retrograde fashion; the Mean Node will be moving from Virgo into Leo (your 3rd house) on April the 29th, with the True Node following suit on May 9th. However, the effects of this change will be felt most strongly now in the first degree of Virgo, your 4th house of home and family.
With the North Node retrograding through Leo, your 3rd house, and the South Node in Aquarius, your 9th, for the next 18 months or so, karmic lessons can be learnt from exploring and testing the limits of relationships and activities in your local area, such as dealings with neighbours and siblings, early education, creative communication and local travel. Foreign affairs, long-distance travel and contacts with people of a different race or culture come forward. Cultural pursuits, the law, politics, religion and higher education are emphasized.
