Art World Astrology

APRIL 2017

A new astrological year starts with Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, and brings with it the chance for a fresh new start. It is no coincidence that Aries starts when spring does, as it is associated with newness and rebirth. This is a time for spring cleaning both at a material level and a mental level. The fieriness of Aries encourages us to let go what we don’t need and start again with none of the old baggage.

Fire signs favor bold and big expression, and this time, art is at its best when it’s exposing the truth, bringing light to darkness and openness to what’s closed. Self-confidence and assertiveness are enhanced, as is the likelihood of saying things we regret later. This is a time that encourages us to speak clearly and openly, but, with a full moon in partnership-oriented, diplomatic Libra on the 11th, we’ll be rewarded when we speak our truth with kindness and find that balance between the “me” and the “we”.

ARIES march 21 - april 20

It’s Aries turn in the spotlight and it’s an excellent time to take on those leadership roles that could use their talents. You’re able to connect with people in a deeper way and reach compromises easily. A new cycle starts where stability and material security might become more important to you and additional sources of income and/or sales could arise. Make sure to get all the budgeting or accounting help you need to be ready. Collectors and gallerists can set plans in motion around the 5th with confidence, they’re on solid ground. Artists could have breakthrough ideas especially around the 14th. Partnership conflicts can come to a head on the full moon of the 11th, it’s a great time to clear the air.

Connecting with the earth, nature and your own body will refuel your creativity. Collectors and gallerists can make some solid investments or meet people with a lot of potential. Profits could come rolling in on the 7th. Inspiration is off the charts 14th through 20th.
