In episode 150 of the podcast astrologers Austin Coppock and Kelly Surtees join the show to talk about the astrological forecast for April of 2018.
The forecast for April includes a Mars-Saturn conjunction in Capricorn right at the beginning of the month, Mercury stationing direct in Aries, Saturn and Pluto stationing retrograde, and more.
At the top of the show we get into a few pre-forecast discussion topics and announcements, which included an announcement about a podcast listener meetup at the United Astrology Conference in Chicago in May, Kelly gives us a report on the recent Northwest Astrological Conference, and some brief reflections on the growing popularity of astrology.
As usual, the artwork for this episode is from the 2018 PlanetWatcher Calendar.
