April 9 – May 3 2017 communication planet Mercury is retrograde for three weeks.
Traditionally in astrology, Mercury retrograde is a time of miscommunication, technology problems, and items lost or misplaced. But Mercury retrograde during this Fire Phoenix (Rooster) year 2017 can be an excellent time to focus on detailed tasks and catch up on financial matters.
April 9 – 20 Mercury retrograde in Earth sign Taurus. Good to follow up, get grounded, and complete tasks. You can be thorough and take your time. Venus rules Taurus who loves art, beauty, and enjoying the finer things of life.
April 20 – May 3 Mercury retrograde in Fire sign Aries for strong communication and taking immediate action. Fire brings energy to complete projects, but impulsive or snap decisions can be corrected at a later time.
We feel the Mercury retrograde influence until the new Moon on May 26 that begins a new lunar cycle.

April 10 2017 is a full Moon in Libra. Air sign Libra rules the 7th house of relationships, partners, and marriage. Time to focus on balance in your close relationships as the lunar cycle wanes. This full Moon marks the peak of Dragon month in this Phoenix (Rooster) year. Dragon and Phoenix are a symbol of marriage and relationship harmony.
This full Moon conjuncts Jupiter bringing kind feelings and generosity towards others. There can be understanding and empathy on a deep intuitive level, with clear and honest expression, that’s very helpful during Mercury retrograde from April 9 until May 3.
The full Moon, Sun, Jupiter, and Uranus square Pluto. There could be fights or ego conflicts for power, especially now during the peak of Dragon month because Dragon is strong, mighty, and will not be told what to do. Or there could be clashes with those in authority, and ambition could be blocked by others.
Fortunately, the Sun, Mercury, and Uranus trine Saturn bringing stability and creative balance of old and new. Disciplined or serious work can be rewarding, and methodical steps lead to significant progress and professional advancement. Luck is strongest for Air signs Libra, Aquarius, and Gemini and those born in Dragon, Tiger, and Horse years. Contact me for your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation.
Happy full Moon,
