CosmiTec's Love Letter, Issue #160 -- Scanning Your Progressions to Find Love
March 21, 2018

Three planetary stations and Chiron entering Aries, these are the main ingredients of the astrological configurations in April.

While less busy (than March), it won't be less heavy a month...

To comply with the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that takes effect on May 25, 2018 we, like all small and large businesses (organizations, corporations and companies) in Europe, must focus on editing some forms and articles on our web site first.

Because of this, the https conversion of our web site is delayed further.

However, our astrology work is not impacted so that we are able to continue with our research projects and processing orders, as usual...

Most lovingly

Click her to download the April 2018 calendar in pdf format.

In general and on a mundane level, events are likely to happen around April 7, April 14, April 21 and/or April 27.

During this month of April, the following planetary configurations will affect some birthdays in particular:
  • If you are born around January 5, February 18-19, April 5, May 21, July 7, August 23, October 8 or November 22, this month is related to reorganizing priorities and setting more realistic goals.

    You tend to be more rigid and controlling and surpass yourself.

    Hard and/or hazardous work await you.

  • If you are born around January 10-11, February 24, April 10, May 27, July 13, August 29, October 14 or November 27-28, this month is related to turning tides.

    Some profound changes might happen because and/or with some groups interactions.
Generally speaking, April 19 is less a "lucky" day.

Try not to initiate any major projects on this dark, unfortunate, chaotic and empty day (no proposals, no marriages, no changes of residence,...) because things may not go as planned or wished.

Around April 1-2 the Sun and Mercury conjoin at 11° Aries while Mars and Saturn conjoin at 8° Capricorn.

The Sun-Mercury conjunction suggests an announcement, some communication, speech and/or message from a higher-up, a CEO, boss, president or leader.

If you are born between January 2-3, February 1, March 2-3, April 2, May 2-3, June 2-3, July 4, August 4-5, September 4-5, October 5-6, November 4-5 or December 4-5, there are meetings, contacts and encounters.

There is a lot of communication and exchange of thoughts going on.

When Mars and Saturn conjoin and Saturn is the stronger because it's in its own sign Capricorn of ambitions and climbing up the ladder, there is a huge need to prove oneself and achieve one's goals or targets.

The Mars-Saturn conjunction in a cardinal sign is a huge driver and aims high.

There is a lot of tenacious determination and self-control.

In some instances, this aspect indicates the (sudden) death of a male person.

Expect cooler (colder) weather the early April days and strong winds.

Retrograde Mercury at 9° Aries squares Mars at 9° Capricorn around April 4, suggesting insults and quarrels and the wrong reasoning.

The day after, around April 5, retrograde Mercury at 9° Aries squares Saturn at 9° Saturn indicating sharp criticism and dissatisfaction.

The atmosphere is clouded.

The attentive reader may have noticed that the first week of April is actually marked by two planetary duos squaring each other: the Sun-Mercury conjunction (duo) squares the Mars-Saturn conjunction (duo) between 9°-12° cardinal signs.

Beware of your communication and thoughts because this can be a cynical, harsh and obstructive period.

Mental activity is high but may result in failures and/or miscalculations.

Beware of accidents and physical injuries.

Around April 9 Venus at 11° Taurus squares the mean Lunar Nodes indicating love's sorrow, money shortages, shyness towards others or someone else and/or sadness over a beloved one.

You may prefer solitude around these days.

Around April 11 the Sun at 21° Aries squares Pluto at 21° Capricorn.

This waxing square indicates pushing through forcefully.

Expect power conflicts and some bullying.

Around April 11-12 fortunate developments emerge and you feel progress in case you are born between January 11-12, February 10, March 11-12, April 11, May 12, June 12, July 13-14, August 14, September 14, October 14-15, November 13-14 or December 13.

Mercury stations around the April 15-16 New Moon at 4° Aries and turns direct again.

For Geminis and Virgos (and Gemini and Virgo Ascendants), this station may be welcome because it brings some forward movement in their lives.

It's time to make decisions more public but prepare for a highly busy and hectic period also.

This is the more so because Mercury's station happens around the April 15-16 New Moon which is conjunct disruptive and turbulent Uranus.

This can be a period of breakthroughs and brilliant, innovative ideas.

Venus at 20° Taurus opposes Jupiter at 20° Scorpio while Chiron enters Aries and Saturn stations and turns retrograde at 9° Capricorn around April 17.

Clearly, mid April is hectic to say the least...

The Venus-Jupiter opposition indicates happy moments, optimism and high hopes.

There is some over-indulgence noticeable and the need to gather and even merge with others and socialize.

Usually, when Saturn stations and turns backward, people from the past may enter your world again.

In the sign of the banking world, corporations and governments, this station of Saturn will redefine them.

Governments, the corporate and banking world, leaders of state and higher-ups may face or endure additional stress, trials and testing times during this backward motion of Saturn.

Security needs will be re-viewed and it's time to dig in the past.

The entry of Chiron into commanding and busy Aries will learn people to control aggressiveness (either of themselves or of others).

This entry marks an increased pushing through one's individuality, uninhibited self-expression and a strong need to overcome any obstacles.

The Vernal point or 0° Aries represents "the world at large" (the planet, humanity) and when Chiron, the maverick, hits this point, something is going to become visible, noticed and/or experienced worldwide.

Forget about Chiron being the wounded healer because you can do nothing with this meaning on a mundane level...

Chiron is a blend between Saturn and Uranus and reflects best the maverick and the non-conformist but also the one who opens doors (more correctly who cracks doors).

Where Chiron is, there can be resistance and tension on a mundane level, disputing rules and trying to break away to live its individuality AND unique self.

At 0° Aries, Chiron represents the adolescent crisis of "the world at large."

Chiron can be rule-breaking and manifesting in an irritating way.

If you are born between January 11-12, February 10, March 11-12, April 11, May 12, June 12, July 13-14, August 14, September 14, October 14-15, November 13-14 or December 13, the current astrological configurations enhance your love life manifolds.

You are popular, show unbounded optimism and may share lots of love in a big way.

Around April 18, the Sun and Uranus conjoin at 28° Aries, suggesting a shock experience.

The Sun enters inert and physical and material Taurus Around April 20.

There is some damage and/or financial expenses and some of you may have financial concerns.

Your material existence is now coming into the picture one way or the other.

Around April 22, Pluto stations and turns retrograde at 21° Capricorn.

With all these planetary stations in earth signs, some earth-shaking events may occur this month.

With stationing Pluto in the earth sign Capricorn, reflecting the surface of the earth, earthquakes, earthslides, mining disasters and the like are always possible.

Stationing Pluto in Capricorn suggests increased power struggles in the banking and corporate world and in governments as well.

The establishment is under serious review this month.

Venus enters airy Gemini around April 24 and indicates uncertainty and confusion regarding values.

Lots is moving and changing and so is your core existence.

Artistic and tangible gifts or presents show your love.

Around April 25 Mercury at 9° Aries squares stationing Saturn at 9° Capricorn for the second time this month, denoting annoying formalities to fulfill and/or troubling letters from some government.

Some cynism and sharp criticism mark this day.

You may feel dissatisfied.

The atmosphere is clouded.

Mars and Pluto conjoin at 21° Capricorn around April 26 resulting in a huge workload.

This combo is a violent one but also a very compulsive and insistent one.

There is huge willpower and an unflinching attitude and courage noticeable.

Physical desires may pop up also.

What's New on Our Web Site?

There are a couple of updates to mention.

We updated the divorce horoscopes page with some new information.

We added an article about Eclipses and Relationships which we published in a previous Love Letter.

We also added an article about Conjunctions to the ruler of the 7th house which we also published in a previous Love Letter.

We started editing our order forms to comply with the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The GDPR takes effect on May 25, 2018 so that all businesses in Europe must comply to these new regulations before this date.

This new and strict regulation is not suprising with transiting Saturn (and Pluto) in the sign of boundaries, security, regulations and privacy.

Hence, it comes as no surpise either that censorship on the internet too increases exponentially which is indicated by the Saturn and Pluto transits in Capricorn) also.

Transiting Mars in Capricorn even adds to it because there is now a stellium in this very security-minded zodiac sign !

Scanning Your Progressions to Find Love

On our web site we listed different methods that can be used to find a time frame to find love.

Though the transits are often the most used and point to daily or short-range influences, the progressions show mid- to long-range planetary influences.

One of the most used methods is looking for periods when the natal or progressed Sun, Moon, Venus or Mars conjunct the natal or progressed Ascendant-Descendant axis and/or MC-IC axis.

Finding these conjunctions manually may be a little time-consuming for some, but with the help of astrology software, finding the appropriate time frames becomes a snap.

Though you can find the appropriate time frames in a graphic ephemeris, in this article we want to show you how to find the conjunctions in a dynamic bi- or tri-wheel.

Not all software features dynamic chart wheels (bi- or tri-wheels) or horoscope wheels (bi- or tri-wheels) though.

We're still trying to find out which astrology software provides this feature and we will add the instructions on our web site as soon as this article is republished on our web site.

For the moment we have found this feature in Solar Fire and in AIR Star Trax Millennium V7 software.

In this article we describe the steps to be used with Solar Fire, still one of the most commonly used astrology software worldwide.

So, what we are looking for is conjunctions from either the natal or progressed Sun, Moon, Venus and/or Mars with the natal and/or progressed angles.

To avoid any clutter, we filter out all other planets or bodies and only display the points and planets we need.

In the introduction screen of Solar Fire, you select the pull-down menu "chart options" and select "Displayed points".

If you have already created a file with the Ascendant, MC, Sun, Moon, Venus and Mars, select it.

Otherwise, hit the "create" button, enter a file name and select the Ascendant, MC, Sun, Moon, Venus and Mars.

Hit the "save" button and then select it.

Follow the steps as outlined below:
  1. In the introductory screen select a natal chart in the "calculated charts" list or click on the open the chart database icon (top left)
  2. Go to the dynamic option and click the option "Animate Biwheel"
  3. Click the "Charts" button on the right navigation bar
  4. In the pop up window, click the option "Secondary progressions" under the dynamic method to apply to base chart
  5. Click the OK button
  6. Select a step (1 month or more than a month, as you prefer) in the right navigation bar
  7. Click on the blue step by step button to animate the progressed chart
If you want to animate a triwheel, encompassing the natal chart, the direct progressed chart and the converse progressed chart, just select "Animate Triwheel" In step 2 and proceed likewise.

Take note of all the conjunctions of the Moon, Sun, Venus or Mars positions to any of the angles.
