General Astrological Influences, April 2016: The Inner and Outer Goddess

Strong fire influences, intensified by the Aries Sun, open one of the year’s best windows for effective action. And it’s a time worth seizing, since there are undercurrents whose force accumulates during the month and can catch us by surprise.
