New Moon in Aries, Retrograde Mercury conjunct Uranus, Mars Square Nodes
Retrograde Mercury is exactly conjunct Uranus on Friday, April 28, @ 1 deg Aries. This is a rather problematic combination, prone to Misunderstandings and Miscalculations, which could have unexpected consequences. Therefore best to beware of any fast developing situations and not give in to Sudden Impulse. Mercury is the planet of The Media; Uranus is The Unexpected. Mercury ends its retrograde period on May 3, but will still be in close conjunction with Uranus until mid-May. Mercury is the planet of the Rational Intellect, and when combined with Uranus planet of Independence, we get Radical Thinking.
Mars is Square to the Rahu-Ketu Axis. The planet of Action is at the exact midpoint (7 deg Taurus) of the Lunar Nodes on Sunday, April 23. Planets at the midpoint of the nodal axis are put under a lot of Tension. Since Mars is the planet of Action and Violence, this is a rather problematic situation, which has already been seeing some effects (Venezuela) and will likely show up in other ways over the coming days, for instance, the French Election.
