April 2017 Planetary OverviewWhat does it mean? The energies of these planets are turned inward and become more subjective. We have to think more deeply about the energies involved: harmony, beauty and love (Venus), precision, stability and ethics (Saturn), communication and reasoning (Mercury) and transformation (Pluto). So, this is a good time to improve ourselves and to make major changes in our lives.
