The Full Moon of the 19th of April occurs at 29°06′ of Libra. In Astrology full moons mark the end of a 28 days’ cycle started at the previous new moon, respectively that of the 5th of April. They are also culmination points, where the results of the processes started during the previous lunar cycle are emerging. The current full moon is a blue moon, as it occurs in the same sign as the full moon of 21st of March.

The most important Astrological event of 2019 occured on the 6th of March: Uranus re-entered Taurus. Uranus spends in a sign cca 7 years, so this is a significant shift. Between the 16th of May – 6th of November 2018 when it visited briefly Taurus, we got some impressions about the atmosphere of this transit. Uranus is the planet of unpredictable changes and disruptions while Taurus is a slow, peaceful and security orientated Earth – sign : least to be said, the energy of the two cosmic principles don’t blend very well.
The sextile between Saturn and Neptune perfected for the first time on the 31th of January on the 14°54′ of Capricorn and Pisces. The sextile perfects for the second time on the 18th of June (Capricorn – Pisces 18°43′) and for the third time on the 8th of November ( Capricorn – Pisces 16°01) This is a beneficial aspect, combining the spiritual world, dreams, fantasies with common sense and substantial efforts to achieve tangible results. Since many things look too good to be true in 2019, this grounding transit is a real blessing.
The New Moon of the 5th of April ( 09:51 am, London ) occured on 15° 17′ of Aries.

The atmosphere is full of spirit of initiative, enthusiasm, passion, impetus and spontaneity. In this situation, however, these alone are not enough for breakthroughs.
