The Sun, ruler of soul and self-expression, is in the Gandanta zone between Pisces and Aries and the nakshatras of Revati and Ashwini from April 10th until 17th.
This double-border area extending either side of zodiacal fire and water signs and asterisms is known for a period of instability: your plans may fall in between two extremes and you have trouble getting your intentions pushed through.
Gandata means ‘knot-end’ where you find an obstacle to overcome, and the Sun’s usual ego-oriented style doesn’t strike much of a chord among your supporter. You may have to remain anonymous during this period, or let someone else take the credit at first.
The last part of Revati, April 10th-14th emphasizes imagination and empathy, qualities which will be more useful than the usual solar display. Still, make sure to mix widely and make yourself known, as the Gandanta energy can be otherworldly and self-sabotaging, and some people may mistake your quiet style for a lack of confidence.
Revati’s Shakti is ‘To Protect’, and you can be supportive towards a friend at the start of this phase and also find time for some self-love. By April 14th, the Sun shifts into Aries, its strongest sign, and the atmosphere changes abruptly, though you might still double-check before leaping in to a new situation on the back of a burst of enthusiasm.
Ashwini’s Shakti is ‘to quickly reach things’, but precisely at this point you may wish to hold back and make sure people are in tune with your moves. The second half of this transit finds a completely new and unexpected solution to an old stalemate and you resolve the deadlock by embracing new thinking and daring to be someone you shied away from before.
