April 19: The sun enters Taurus

Support and stability



The moon is conjunct Neptune at 3:32 a.m.


In the wee hours, the soulful Pisces moon conjoins Neptune, creating a mystical and dreamy mood. This state may be experienced on the dream plane, while most of us are sleeping, making our nocturnal symbols more vivid and mysterious. Having the moon co-present with nebulous Neptune for the day will likely promote a hazy feeling, when our minds wander imaginatively, making it hard to focus on concrete tasks. This feeling will likely be so pervasive that it’s probably best to not fight it, but rather, flow with it, swimming with the currents of meditative vision.

The sun enters Taurus at 7:45 a.m.


Sun-day begins with the sun changing signs into earthy and abundant Taurus, establishing the middle of the spring season. The Aries ingress of the sun brought a springtime full of contradictions, a world under restriction at a time when it wanted to bloom and expand. Hopefully, the next thirty days of Taurus season promote a sense of grounding acceptance and increased security amidst our difficult circumstances. 


Ruled by Venus, Taurus is a sign linked to abundance, nourishment, and prosperity—giving us an opportunity to feel grateful for whatever support and stability we do have and find ways to honor, nurture, and cultivate our material resources. As the days continue to increase and the weather starts to warm in the northern hemisphere mid-spring, there’s hope that this seasonal shift promotes conditions that are helpful for our collective health as we strive to get the current crisis resolved.



The moon is sextile both Pluto at 1:51 p.m., and Jupiter at 4:31 p.m.


By late afternoon, the meditative mood of the Pisces moon comes into phase with the material realities of our times, as it forms a sextile with transformative Pluto and expansive Jupiter, both in pragmatic Capricorn. It could be the meditative and insular mood is revealing fresh hope and clarity regarding the challenges and changes of our times. A sense of compassion and acceptance helps us to flow with visions that can lead to solutions.
