APRIL 2014  

 

ARIES

Well it’s quite a month, but the action doesn’t really get going until mid April (although there are two squares with an Aries Sun against Jupiter and Pluto and a conjunct with Uranus all in the first three days!). 

But Aries is a sign that “when the going gets tough the tough get going” and you’ll need to have a bit of mental and emotional resilience as a cardinal sign.

Early in the month Venus enters that dark place in your chart, where confusion and upset can reign - but also great insight, peace and spirituality – depending on what is happening around you.

If, for example, you are the shy type of Aries (not very common) then you may feel more alone.   Or you might be having a secret dalliance or love affair or withdrawing from someone as your emotions goes on hold.  Your feelings, friendship and openness are held back more than usual or you are keeping something under wraps. 

It’s possible that you may feel “less loved” and equally possible that a loved one or a friend disappoints you, or lets you down.

Others can get the wrong impression about your intentions or will try to distort them, so it’s not your best month for emotional dealings in general.

In the first half of the month there are two influences that indicate relationship tests. Venus is making you more vulnerable (and self sacrificing) and the full moon talks about the need for compromise and being able to understand the views of another. 

If you are in a relationship and/or with a friend/lover/family member, some kind of ordeal is likely. But then (given the yin and yang of planetary energy) so too is the possibility of finding the love of your life (or some variation on the theme).

In fact with the lunar eclipse mid month, not just in late April, but also for the next few months you are likely to the one on the front foot in your relationships, rather than the back foot and handled well, things can swing your way.

The real action starts around the 11th when Venus aspects Neptune and both are in the hidden part of your chart. It may be that you feel hurt by someone you love and there is something private going on behind the scenes.  Someone’s motives are not going to be “nice” and this may affect you financially, but more likely will just make you anxious.  However if anything is offered to you, read the fine print before you commit!

The 14th is not a nice day and there will be some upset (as there are no less than three difficult aspects all on the one day).  This will affect your communication and presentation, so don’t write, say or do anything important, as your reputation can be damaged or you could have a huge falling out with someone.

The first eclipse of the month is in Libra on the 15th and as a cardinal sign you will feel this quite strongly.  There is also a grand cardinal cross that involves Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto (because the four cardinal signs, Aries, Libra, Cancer and Pluto form the cross).  Uranus is in Aries, Mars in Libra, and Jupiter in Cancer and Pluto in Capricorn.  So Self, relationships, home and family and career and public image will all be the areas impacted and they will all intertwine and coexist, and each one will make the other stronger…or more difficult.  

At the same time there is a full moon (15th) in your relationship house so there is going to be some kind of drama in one relationship and you could find yourself at odds with a spouse, mate, business partner, relative, friend - or worst scenario, an enemy.

It’s so important to tone down any reactions and think in terms of cooperation, compromise and negotiation; otherwise situations can really spin out of control.

Conversely, because this is such a strong energy, if you are single (and even if you are not) you could be a coup de foudre moment.

But one way or another the ties that bind will be stretched, snap or collide together. If you have a rock solid emotional partnership, then this is likely to be with a boss, or a neighbor or a parent, or some other key relationship in your life.

On the 20th Jupiter squares Uranus and that signifies some tension at home and in your family life or maybe some physical problem with your home (blocked toilet, gas leak etc.).

Also on the same day, there is an opposition between Jupiter and Pluto and Pluto is in your career house, so tread a bit warily around this time as you could encounter a problem at work.  A run-in with a work colleague or worse your boss (or even your father) is entirely possible around 20-21st or around those dates.  You might be tempted to throw in the towel at work, especially if it feels like a prison or your boss is always on your case.  Or you stand up for yourself... and are shown the door.

You could have a falling out with your mate or at the very least have different ideas about lifestyle aspirations or you may be dealing with problems either with or related to your father.

The 22-23 is also littered with difficult planetary aspects, so you will hear something you don’t like and as Mercury enters Taurus on the 23rd you’re probably worried more about financial concerns (how to improve or protect your pile).  Mars is opposing both Pluto and Uranus on the 23rd so you should literally circle this as a red-letter day (but not in a good way); best to keep your mouth shut and stay indoors. 

At least there is some good news at the end of the month with the solar eclipse/new moon in Taurus in your financial sector.  This suggests that whatever concerns you had about money (that may have arisen mid month) are satisfactorily dealt with and indeed you may even score a great new job!

This energy lasts for most of the year, so your spending patterns will be somewhat of a focus and you might go a little crazy trying to increase your pile.  This is very much ego-driven i.e. the best car, house, etc, (as this is the house of self esteem as well).   You feel you are what you have.

If you “lost it” during the earlier planetary storm, then the new moon on the 29th might help address whatever aspect of your personality might need some fine tuning – either at work or in your public life.

I don’t want to rain on your parade (because it’s your birthday month), and you will have some great times in the mix also. 

April is kicker for most, and as a cardinal sign you are in the firing line, so try to avoid the “hot spots” and keep a check on your reactions.

By the time the 2nd May comes around, you are without doubt the flavor of that month!

TAURUS

As I mentioned to Aries  -and indeed to all the signs - April is “quite a month”, (although not being a cardinal sign, you are not as much in the cosmic firing line). 

At any rate, the action doesn’t really get going until after the first week, (although there are two squares and a conjunct with Uranus all in the first three days!). 

However you are a very patient and resilient sign, so you can easily ride out April and lie low until your solar return arrives.

Early in the month Venus enters your social sphere, so your social life is going to get a boost and almost immediately you’ll see more invitations in your inbox and when you go out, you’ll be meeting new folk.

People in authority will look more favorably on you (green lights on submissions, applications, competitions etc) and if you have any children they might make you very proud with a prize or reward for effort.

This is also the house of your hopes and dreams, so a wish may come true!  But you can expect to have a very nice month socially.

In the first half of the month you are more focused on improving your life and indeed the full moon on the 15th can bring some reformative behavior.  If you’ve been drinking too much, not exercising, working too hard, not sleeping enough…then you’ll get the urge to make yourself “whole”. 

There is also a lunar eclipse in Libra on this day, so this does “up the ante” and is likely to make you more passionate about your ideas….and perhaps more inclined to apportion blame. 

If you are unhappy about some aspect of your lifestyle instead of being constructive about it, you might want to start pointing the finger.  An eclipse in your house of health and work may see you having a “go” at a coworker or a run-in with your gym instructor or a doctor.

The action starts around the 11th when Venus aspects Neptune and both are in the area of your chart that rules hopes and wishes, organizations, VIP’s and friends.  You might have a drama with a friend or social group, or receive some unpleasant news from a group or organization.   

The 14th is not a nice day and there will be upset, as there are no less than three difficult aspects all on the one-day. A secret will come to light or you discover someone has been saying stuff behind your back.  You might have a run-in with a brother or sister, or a neighbor, as this affects your communications house, so any form of communication with a sibling - or in your community - can be problematic.

The first eclipse of April on the 15th is in Libra and because you are not a cardinal sign this may pass you by. It falls in your health and work sector, but also your “daily” activities so any of these areas could be affected.  You might get sick, or have some unpleasant health report, or strain a muscle at the gym.  Something might go wrong at work, but it will not be major although it’s possible that someone who is part of your everyday environment exits your life either on a temporary or permanent basis.

There is also a grand cardinal cross that involves Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto (because the four cardinal signs, Aries, Libra, Cancer and Pluto form the cross).  Uranus is in Aries, Mars in Libra, Jupiter in Cancer and Pluto in Capricorn.  So anything hidden and secret, your health and work, your communications (including internet), neighbors and siblings and finally legalities, education and your perspective, will all be the areas impacted and they will all intertwine and coexist and each one will make the other stronger…or more difficult.  

At the same time there is a full moon in your health and work sector so a work project could end (or a job) or you hear some emotional news about your health or there may even be a secret revealed relating to a health issue. 

On the 20th Jupiter squares Uranus and that reinforces the tension and problems to do with communications, anything hidden, siblings and neighbors.

Also on the same day, there is an opposition between Jupiter and Pluto and Pluto is in your relationships house so tread a bit warily around this time as you could encounter a problem with a partner, boss, opponent or friend. 

Given that both of these difficult aspects fall on the same day, communication can break - or reform -a relationship or you discover a secret that ends a relationship.

The 22-23 is also littered with difficult planetary aspects, so you will hear something you don’t like and as Mercury enters Taurus the opposition is very much directed at you personally and what you write, say and state.

This could range from being “ticked off by what you’ve said, or the disastrous collapse of a friendship, working association, et al. 

For most of April everyone (especially the cardinal signs, Aries, Libra, Cancer and Capricorn) are under the gun and so it’s hair trigger stuff.  That said, you’re lucky that you have Mercury in your sign, so that you well equipped to defend yourself against the harshest attack.

Mars is opposing both Pluto and Uranus on the 23rd so you should literally circle this as a red-letter day (but not in a good way).  Try not to engage with anyone in a heated fashion and don’t press send until you’ve thought about it.

For you personally as a Taurus, April is quite a defining month as you have an eclipse at the end of the month in your sign and this is a time of fresh starts and life changes. 

But given what is likely to have “gone down” in April, it’s also calling on you to have a good hard look at your own behavior and any weaknesses.  If you optimize this energy, you could have an enormous breakthrough and can really make stellar progress in a number of areas.

The new moon gives you a new start, how you look, sound, or present, your brand and your image and how you express yourself.  If your face or your voice is your business, you might re-launch or re-package in some way or introduced a new look (website, branding etc).  Self-confidence is paramount to optimize this planetary energy, but if you are courageous and gutsy, the world is your oyster. 

That said I do think the last week of April will see you having Close Encounters of the Unkind and people will be trying to undermine you or you are confronting opposition.  You are more visible and it will be a case of What Katy Did Next (substitute your own name) as people will be watching you. 

If you are engaged in some kind of battle of wills or wits (personal, legal etc) then you have to use the full might of your considerable strength.  You could be famous or infamous, well known or notorious, but as I said, self-confidence is the key.

You may feel a bit under attack or even somewhat depressed at times during the month, but when you are feeling that way, remind yourself that as a Taurus you are not a cardinal sign!

GEMINI

Well it’s quite a month for all signs but as a Gemini you are also another who doesn’t wear the brunt of the cardinal cross energy. 

The action doesn’t really get going until mid April (although there are two squares with an Aries Sun against Jupiter and Pluto and a conjunct with Uranus all in the first three days!).  This is going to impact on your social life when you could have some awkward moments socially, or problems with offspring (if you have them) or problems with a lover – and even a split – or problems with organizations, VIP’s and groups (and “authorities, such as big corporations and government entities).

That said, I don’t think you’ll have any great dramas as Venus is lending a helping hand here and ensuring that those in authority look favorably upon you and her blessings will assist with “growing” your reputation.

In fact (because she is the Goddess of love) she can bring more romantic opportunities all month, or even a work romance (as this is where Venus is now situated).  Most likely she will bring benefits to your career and make you appear very capable (not to mention more charming).

The action starts around the 11th when Venus aspects Neptune and this will impact the very areas I mention above.

Your reputation may take a hit or you might make a mistake at work (or in your public life) and there could be problems with your social status. Your relationship to a group (specifically a government group) and to society could be issues you have to deal with around this time.

The 14th is not a nice day and there will be upset as there are no less than three difficult aspects all on the one day (and they all involve your ruler Mercury) so you must watch also what you write and say. 

Finances and your sense of self worth will be under attack (and areas of vulnerability), especially relating to any joint or shared finances. 

Pluto is in your 8th house, so estate matters, debts and a sexual relationship could also be “ouch” factors.

The first eclipse in April is a lunar one in Libra on the 15th, but as you are not a cardinal sign, you will not feel this to the same extent as some others.

You may decide to take some kind of an emotional or “love” risk and for many this relates to your offspring in some way. Maybe you decide to have a child or maybe you fall in love.

There is also a full moon on the same day, so you will feel emotional and something may very well come to an end (full moons are often endings) or there is some upset or even shock regarding someone you love, or involved with (or even via a child). 

If you do have any children, what they are getting up to is also going to impact on you one way or another.

There is a grand cardinal cross a few days later that involves Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto (because the four cardinal signs, Aries, Libra, Cancer and Pluto form the cross).  Uranus is in Aries, Mars in Libra, and Jupiter in Cancer and Pluto in Capricorn.  So organizations and government entities, friends, groups, hopes, children, VIP’s, love and romance, money, assets and shared resources and debts will all be the areas impacted and they will all intertwine and coexist and each one will make the other stronger…or more difficult.  

Money and love, money and children, money shared with others, debts owed to an organization, IVF or child related expenses; all these things can manifest around this time in different forms.

On the 20th Jupiter squares Uranus and there might be some form of “shock” from the outside world, from an organization, group, child or friend. 

That said you might also be liberated from a long and drawn out situation, but there will be disruption around this time.

However you thrive on change and can adapt to whatever the Cosmos throws at you. But there will be some challenges that you will need to manage carefully.  

Also on the same day, there is an opposition between Jupiter and Pluto and this is a time of reaping what you’ve sown, so it can be good or not so good. 

Pluto is in your joint resources house and Jupiter in your house of money and self esteem, so if anything goes wrong, it’s your hip pocket or your pride that will be affected.

You could have a run in with people in power who feel threatened by your actions and you will be encountering a lot of resistance in areas where you previously had the green light.

Be particularly careful with any joint contracts and agreements to do with shared money, or inheritances, estates and debts.

Any obsessive or ruthless behavior (Pluto) will be punished, so think “global” outcomes as opposed to what is best only for you.

The 22-23 is also littered with difficult planetary aspects, so you will hear something you don’t like and as Mercury enters Taurus on the 23rd this is in your house of the hidden and any deals and hidden information will come to light at this time.

Mars is opposing both Pluto and Uranus on the 23rd, so you should literally circle this as a red-letter day (but not in a good way).  You may hear news that something has come to an end, or a secret or private matter is revealed; or worst-case scenario, that someone has passed or imprisoned or hospitalized.

At the end of the month there is the second eclipse, the solar eclipse/new moon in Taurus in your house of the hidden.  You might over the next year need some kind of psychological or emotional assistance (especially with Pluto in your 8th!) or else you will be visiting areas that are private, such as prisons or hospitals.

Anything that has been kept under wraps or purposely hidden, or any secrets will be revealed, not necessarily immediately, but certainly over the course of time. 

From the 28 until the 30th your ruler is no longer compromised as it was earlier in the month, and things “pick up” at month’s end (although early in May is difficult).

Still Jupiter is in your money and self esteem house and Jupiter will have your back until July (in this area of your life) so you won’t be broke and you will feel spiritually restored (and your self esteem well intact) before this transit is over.

CANCER

Well it’s quite a month, but the action doesn’t really get going until mid April (although there are two squares with Jupiter and Pluto and a conjunct with Uranus, all in the first three days!). 

Further you are a cardinal sign, so you are well and truly swept up in the maelstrom that is April for the cardinal signs. 

But thanks to Uranus and Pluto you have been under the astrological weather for a long time, that unlike some of your zodiac siblings, you are almost inured to much of what has been happening to you.  You are almost slap-happy (or punch drunk..).  But one way or another I can assure you that April is pivotal and full of radical change.

Early in the month Venus enters Pisces and that makes you want to kick over the traces and expand your world. Travel will really appeal and so will love with a dashing foreigner. As you love to cook, you’ll be thinking “cuisines of around the world”, the more exotic the better.  But this is actually rather a lucky transit and so you can get your message across more succinctly and effectively. You are also more appealing so you should use that to you advantage in all areas of your life.

The action starts around the 11th when Venus aspects Neptune affecting legalities, foreign affairs and education and whilst your antennae is quite reliable, your innate wish for something to be as you wish it to be, is overriding your sensibility and realism.

The 14th is not a nice day and there will be upset as there are no less than three difficult aspects all on the one day.  This will affect any legal dealings, but also your understanding of a situation, an issue with in-laws, and if you have stepped outside the boundaries of law, this will be brought to your attention.

The first eclipse is a lunar one in Libra on the 15th and this falls in your house of home and family.  Whatever occurs around this time is when you might decide you hate a parent (as childhood memories are omnipresent) or you revert back to your needs for emotional security and go back to the womb (metaphorically). 

Home and family predominate and depending on what is happening in your life, you might love them or hate them or anything in between.

But you will be dealing with home and family and tangible home issues) and this area of your life will become very important - and in some cases, crucial.

There is also a grand cardinal cross that involves Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto (because the four cardinal signs, Aries, Libra, Cancer and Pluto form the cross).  Uranus is in Aries, Mars in Libra, and Jupiter in Cancer and Pluto in Capricorn.  Career, home and family and public image, self (and how you relate), and relationships will all be the areas impacted and they will all intertwine and coexist.

At the same time there is a full moon in the domestic sector of your chart, and the moon is your ruler, so there will be emotion issues relating to your home, family and flat mates. 

On a plus note, if someone has been stringing you along for a while or making your life difficult (and you have dreamed of a “balancing” the situation or having a breakthrough), then you will get it. 

This house also represents situations that you have been thinking about for a while, and if something is meant to happen - to “balance” out life - then this is when it will.  Call it destiny or karma. Or maybe it’s directed at you!

It seems that after the rock n’ roll, roller-coaster ride in your public image or career, things seems to have settled down for a while.  But around mid month at the time of the lunar eclipse in Libra you are going to get a bit of a jolt, and this may be with a flat mate, to do with your home, or your domestic partner, or more likely your Mother (Cancer is so entwined with Mother).

But I’m afraid in some way or another you literally have to watch her actions or her movements; or if it’s not your mother then it’s your ex, current or even future partner (or one you wish was..).

Also on the same day, there is an opposition between Jupiter and Pluto and Pluto is in your relationship house, so tread a bit warily around this time as you could encounter problems with just about anyone you connect to (business, personal, friends, family, legal et al). 

The 22nd-23d is also littered with difficult planetary aspects, so you will hear something you don’t like and as Mercury enters Taurus on the 23rd this will affect organizations (probably governmental) VIPs and authority figures, social groups and friends. 

But as this also rules your hopes and wishes sector you may have to lay down a dream or you have a falling out with a child (if you have any).

At least there is some good news at the end of the month with the solar eclipse/new moon in Taurus in the same sector, so like the yin and the yang, you are being blessed at months end.  

You are likely to swing from a long passage of alienation to one of acceptance and you’ll see a growing social life and more people making contact with you. 

You may also be proactive yourself in this regard, and hook up with a group or organization as a means of “belonging” and that might be sporting social, religious et al. (or start doing some charity work during the year as you sure know how it feels to be the underdog and the downtrodden!).

The new moon indicates a new start in your social life (you can expect a fuller and more enjoyable one from hereon in), and you’ll be all about strengthening ties - as opposed to trying to sever them. 

It’s a good idea the end of April to work out where you want to go from here and what you want to achieve, as the eclipse can help you realize a few of those dreams.

Even if you feel somewhat crazy this month you’re probably still saner than most (yep, it’s that kind of month) and even on the bad days, when you are confronting unfairness, domination and even ruthlessness, know that the Uranus Pluto squares (since 2012) are on the way OUT, and by next March its all over.

In the meantime, don’t take shit from anyone, especially in April, because you’ve got Jupiter watching your back (and so the Force is with you).

LEO

Well it’s quite a month, but the action doesn’t really get going until mid April (although there are two squares with an Aries Sun against Jupiter and Pluto and a conjunct with Uranus, all in the first three days!) and for you, this will affect travel plans, foreign connections, educational activities and legalities.

Thankfully for most of April, Venus will try to bestow blessing on your finances, especially any joint ventures, and you could really benefit from someone else.

That said, those first few days do indicate that there will be some intense moments, and that’s most likely to occur at your place of work - either with a supervisor or a coworker.

The action starts around the 11th when Venus aspects Neptune and this is going to affect an intimate relationship, your sex life and finances, so be very careful if you share money with anyone.  This could be a loan company, a spouse, the taxman, an Estate, or any kind of investment.

The 14th is not a nice day and there will be upset, as there are no less than three difficult aspects all on the one day and as Mercury is in the picture, it will be via some form of communication.  This may be bad news about a legal case, and you may get an unfavorable judgment or it is delayed or extended.  Or there may be some disappointment relating to an overseas job or educational placement, Internet business or publishing dream.  

In fact with the lunar eclipse in Libra on the 15th, the theme of communication continues and it will be upsetting as this is also a full moon and therefore more emotional.  You might have news regarding a sibling, or someone else within your family or close environment, such as neighbors (or someone who feels like a sibling).  There may be some issue within your community or your body corporate or Council. 

Communication will be a bit haywire and there will be disconnects and misunderstandings and you may have a harder time getting your message across (or someone might misread your intensions).

It might seem like you’re living in Babel around mid month, when everyone is talking at cross-purposes and you will feel busy, stressed and under pressure.

Full moons are emotional, so your feelings will be heightened and you’ll say what you feel, so that could land you in hot water.

At least you’re not a cardinal sign, so you won’t be impacted as much with the grand cardinal cross that involves Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto (because the four cardinal signs, Aries, Libra, Cancer and Pluto form the cross).  Uranus is in Aries, Mars in Libra, Jupiter in Cancer and Pluto in Capricorn; so legalities, foreign influences, education, travel, communication, siblings, neighbors, secrets and work and health will all be areas that will come under fire in April - and in turn YOU will be fired up.

April is quite a month for everyone, but yours stress seems to be via media, communication and information, so you are likely to receive unwelcome news regarding any of the above issues. 

If you are trying to relocate or travel you may encounter problems, and if you are getting an overseas project of the ground; likewise.  Foreign educational placements, media (legalities and travel) will all encounter setbacks.

On the 20th Jupiter squares Uranus and that suggests that you need to be able to handle the unpredictable, as Uranus is the planet of surprises and even shocks.  Many Leo’s are trying to break free from their everyday and find a different way of living, and that entails some degree of risk.

Best way to handle this energy is to expect surprises and recognize that no outcome is certain or fixed (as you are in a period of unstable cosmic storms).  At the same time, much of what occurs can help to liberate you and can bring opportunities that will allow you to be more yourself.

Travel does seem to figure prominently, but there will be more surprises than you bargained for.

Also on the same day, there is an opposition between Jupiter and Pluto and Pluto is in your work and health house, so tread a bit warily around this time as you could encounter a problem at work, in your daily routines, such as transport, or encounter some health issue.

Nothing will go according to schedule, so just try and work with the energies as the 22-23 is also littered with difficult planetary aspects.

Mercury enters Taurus on the 23rd and this will affect your reputation, your public image, your career or your relationship with your father or even a boss.  Mars is opposing both Pluto and Uranus on the 23rd, so you should literally circle this as a red-letter day (but not in a good way).  Best to try and keep out of the firing line (literally) at work.

But the month is not all bad and it ends on a high note as you have a solar eclipse in Taurus that lands bang in your house of career and public image.  That’s a good energy for you, and could signal the impending arrival of a promotion (maybe overseas) a raise or some other kind of recognition or reward.

Certainly it’s a very positive energy for career advancement and your image and brand is stepped up a notch.  You will be more in demand and your social profile will improve as well. You will suddenly feel a whole lot more ambitious and driven.

There is a new moon that accompanies this solar eclipse and that may indicate a brand new job or a new project or a new (and more successful) chapter in your career. This is the time in your life when you can start to see some of those long-term professional goals materialize.

You might be headhunted or suddenly a senior placement becomes available (or some other opportunity seemingly out of the blue).

This energy lasts for most of the year, so your career and reputation is now on an upward curve.  If you have setbacks and disappointments or “go slows” this month (which are very likely!) know that overall, you are now heading in the right direction in life thanks to this eclipse.

VIRGO

As I have been saying for some time, April is quite a month, although the core action doesn’t really get going until mid April.  That said, there are two squares with an Aries Sun against Jupiter and Pluto and a conjunct with Uranus all in the first three days!).  This means that for the first few days you could be dealing with wills, estates, inheritances, joint finances, debts, or areas of “sexuality”.  In some cases there may be some sad news about an illness or a passing.

At least Venus is doing the right thing by you and bringing great blessings to the area of relationships and you should be the belle (or beau) of the party and certainly getting your fair share of attention and flattery.

If you’ve had a falling out or have an enemy or a situation of opposition, then this is a great energy to try and effect repairs.  If your love life, marriage or business partnership has been strained, you’ll find that this becomes a lot smoother and easier to manage over the next few weeks. In fact you are almost driven to make peace and get on the same page with someone.

The action starts around the 11th when Venus aspects Neptune and both are in your relationship house, so there could be some testing relationship trials. 

This could be with a loved one, a boss, a friend an enemy – but some relationship will have an “ouch” factor.

The 14th is not a nice day either and there will be upset as there are no less than three difficult aspects all on the one day (all to do with Mercury) and Mercury is your ruler. 

Mercury is still in Aries and so this will throw up problems with a love affair or your children (if you have any). This will also affect the area of fun and entertaining, and someone might be unpleasant during a social outing and spoil the fun.  If you are working on a project you may have made a mistake (especially financial) that causes a problem, as your mind does seem a bit scattered when your ruler is being “confronted”.

That said, if you focus your attention, you could make long-range plans or adjustments with any projects …just so long as you are able to organize your thoughts and your schedules and not get too frustrated with all sudden changes or interruptions.

The first eclipse is a lunar eclipse in Libra on the 15th and this is going to impact on your money and possessions.  Maybe someone owes you money or you discover you have a big bill, or owe tax or something unexpected. 

Perhaps you have to fork out a hefty alimony payment or receive a huge credit card bill.  Maybe your source of income drops off or your job evaporates or your mate loses their job and you have to cover all the expenses; but one way or another there is some change to your finances and/or assets.  But it’s also quite possible that you are owed money (although it’s probably the other way around…).

This is also the house of self esteem and values of a different kind (not just monetary) and someone may query your values and ethics - especially if you are involved in some kind of contentious argument - such as a legal challenge, divorce proceedings or company liquidation.

There is also a grand cardinal cross that involves Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto (because the four cardinal signs, Aries, Libra, Cancer and Pluto form the cross).  Uranus is in Aries, Mars in Libra, Jupiter in Cancer and Pluto in Capricorn.  So joint funds and debts, money, organizations (especially government and big business), gambling, children, fun and love will all be the areas impacted and they will all intertwine and coexist and each one will make the other stronger…or more difficult. 

I think you will likely have some kind of financial battle to contend with around mid month or the third week.

At the same time there is a full moon in your finances house, so joint finances, and power issues will reign supreme (of the what's yours and what's mine type).

You could also suffer some self-doubt about your own values and worth and fret about what you have, or don’t have. It may be necessary to play hardball and fight hard for your piece of turf and to clearly define what is yours.

There are indications of dishonesty and financial secrets – either from you to someone or vice versa - but something is not quite kosher.

The eclipse will bring to a head any hidden or simmering issues, and may even be a turning point in negotiations.  Pluto in the 5th and Uranus in the 8th shows that shocks in the areas of joint finances could become a reality if you have taken any risks or not done the right thing.  If that is the case, the eclipse will ensure you come unstuck. Otherwise you’ll be fine and it may be that you actually receive money.

But arguments and stress about money seems to be a key theme.

On the 20th Jupiter squares Uranus and that reinforces problems with joint finances and debts, especially if you owe money.

Also on the same day, there is an opposition between Jupiter and Pluto and Pluto is in your “gambling” house (as well as fun, children and romance) so tread a bit warily around this time and don’t gamble or take any risks.

The 22-23 is also littered with difficult planetary aspects, so you will hear something you don’t like and as Mercury enters Taurus on the 23rd you’re probably worried more about financial concerns, but this time with a legal emphasis as Mercury is now in your house of legalities.  Don’t write or say anything untruthful with regards money; but you may receive a writ or demand. 

Mars is opposing both Pluto and Uranus on the 23rd so you should literally circle this as a red-letter day (but not in a good way) so be very, very careful with money and investments.

At least there is some good news at the end of the month with the solar eclipse/new moon in Taurus in your legal, travel and foreign sector and this house is also a lucky house, so there are blessing to these areas (as well as any higher educational pursuits).

You might decide to do an MBA or toss it all in and travel the world.   You will feel increasingly restless and bored and want to expand your everyday existence and change your usual routines.  You might go and work overseas, or you get some great news about your business if you have international dealings.

You might decide to take the next step and live, work and/or study in another country and are involved in preparing all the necessary paperwork. 

But one way or another this eclipse and new moon does suggest a lot more travel for you coming up - so get that passport in order!  This is also the house of legalities so any legal dealings will be resolved. 

That said, there is an ongoing theme all month to do with money and finances and if you have had any concerns about money this seems to be back on the agenda. There might be money issues with one of your children and you have to meet the debt, or have to fund a project, or a loved one; however try not to commit yourself to a debt, a legal case or anything too long term until April has passed.

LIBRA

Well it’s quite a month, but the action doesn’t really get going until mid April (although there are two squares with an Aries Sun against Jupiter and Pluto and a conjunct with Uranus all in the first three days!).  This shouldn’t throw up any great dramas for you, but you may have some home or family-related issues to deal with in the first week.

But April is a huge month for you in two aspects, one you are a cardinal sign so you are very much “in the mix” with the grand cardinal cross and secondly, there is a lunar eclipse in Libra! 

This will be on your Self/relationship axis so if you are single you could meet someone (and you’ll certainly feel a much deeper need to “pair up”), or you might decide to take the relationship to the next level if you are already in one (wedding bells?).   

Or you might decide to call it quits…escalating in…or escalating out.

Early in the month Venus enters your work, daily routines and health sector, so you’ll be getting along better with your work colleagues and superiors and may even have a romance at work! You’ll be feeling better and you’ll be healthier.

The real action starts around the 11th when Venus aspects Neptune and so conversely this can bring problems at work, or difficulties with a work colleague or a client.  You might wake up with a headache or sore throat, but this is a passing energy, whereas Venus will be blessing these areas all month.

That said, the 14th is not a nice day and there will be some upset (as there are no less than three difficult aspects all on the one day).  This will affect your key relationships, so you won’t be seeing eye-to-eye with someone, most likely a family member, or spouse or flat mate.

The first eclipse of the month (a lunar eclipse) is in Libra on the 15th and also as a cardinal sign you will feel this quite strongly. 

At the same time there is a full moon (15th) in your house of self and you’ll be feeling more emotional to boot, even a tad out of control. You like things in balance and yet your equilibrium will seem off-centre, or perhaps it’s life itself that feels out of sorts (or the people around you).  Nothing is coalescing at the moment.  There might have been some kind of ending as if a chapter of your life has come to a close or you experienced some disappointment, but whatever has occurred - or is occurring - you are feeling very emotional and it might be hard to contain your reactions.  It may be that you feel you can’t control your surroundings or your relationships - and especially one relationship in particular.  This eclipse is on your relationship axis, so it’s quite possible that an association comes to an end.

A lunar eclipse in your sign is of course about YOU and about someone else and the interplay between you. It may be a love affair or a business arrangement or a friendship or your role with a group, but you are reaching some kind of fork in the road, or an epiphany.

Mars is also transiting your sign so there is a lot of heat going on, heated exchanges - perhaps passion – but more likely a separation or ending (and an abrupt one to boot). 

It might feel like Mt Vesuvius all over again in the third week and you (or a situation) is about to explode.  It might not be so dramatic as this; who can tell if it’s a magnitude 2 or 7.. but there will be energy released!

This is also followed by a grand cardinal cross that involves Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto (because the four cardinal signs, Aries, Libra, Cancer and Pluto form the cross) and Uranus is in Aries, Mars in Libra, and Jupiter in Cancer and Pluto in Capricorn. 

So relationships, Self, career, public reputation and home and family will all be the areas impacted and they will all intertwine and coexist, and each one will make the other stronger…or more difficult.  

On the 20th Jupiter squares Uranus and that signifies some tension in your career, your public reputation, brand, imagine (or even home and family life) and a relationship at home with a family member, partner, spouse, flat mate or boarder) - or a relationship at work or in your public life - will result in a spat.

Also on the same day, there is an opposition between Jupiter and Pluto and Pluto is in your house of home, so tread a bit warily around this time as you could encounter a problem back at the ranch.  A run-in with family member or spouse is entirely possible around 20-21. 

There could be some nostalgia and you are thinking about the good old days or even a previous partner and way of life, as your life does seem a bit out of control or unknown in April.

The 22-23 is also littered with difficult planetary aspects, so you will hear something you don’t like and as Mercury enters Taurus on the 23rd you’re probably worried about some shared money or a joint financial exercise.  Maybe a loved one is spending too much money, perhaps you are hit with a debt that you owe, or there is a sexual drama (and THAT can have lots of manifestations…).

Mars is opposing both Pluto and Uranus on the 23rd so you should literally circle this as a red-letter day  - but not in a good way (and stay as far away from home as possible).  Maybe take a mini break and get away for a few days.

There is a solar eclipse/new moon in Taurus in the area of shared funds, sexuality and debt and this is actually not too bad an energy, in fact it can be rather beneficial and this might see you joining financial forces with someone else and actually making some money (like a shared business). 

In fact a joint business might turn out to be very profitable. 

You’ll feel more in control as the month comes to and end as you restore your equilibrium, knuckle down and take an objective look at your finances, especially those joined with another. 

Some lucky Librans will be enjoying amazing sex and other long termers will enjoy a period of depending intimacy and a renaissance of those original feelings.  At the very least you feel that someone has your back, (and least of all, you!).

True, some Librans have reached the dead-end in a relationship (and if this is the case, the earlier activity of April was the death knell) and so you are diving the spoils and working out who gets what.  This is also the house of wills and estates so someone may have passed and left you a legacy and you’ll be sorting this out in the coming months.

But the energy is on shared finances  (employer, spouse, loan company, bank, and so on…).

An eclipse in Libra does mean that there is a major change coming in some aspect of your life, and as you and relationships are front and center, they will be a huge part of this month, for better or for worse. 

You might be validated or cancelled out, or anywhere in between, but this is a hurdle you will have to cross (and this will definitely have a shared financial aspect that you have to navigate around..).

SCORPIO

Well it’s quite a month, but the action doesn’t really get going until mid April (although there are two squares with an Aries Sun against Jupiter and Pluto and a conjunct with Uranus all in the first three days!).  Apart from some communication irritations or some work hassles, there should be no real problems.

You are not a cardinal sign so you are not in the firing line this month, but then as a Scorpio you have been in the firing line for the past couple of years! 

Maybe it’s because you have gotten used to dealing with drama and change, but I suspect it’s more the case of Venus in the fun area of your chart all month that makes you one of the most fortunate of signs in April.

Early in April, Venus enters your house of romance, fun, love affairs, entertainment, risk, flirtations, children and creativity, so it’s a very fecund and fun passage. You are very charming in April and very appealing, and really very focused on satiating your senses (whatever that means for you…).

If you are single you are very much in demand as you are like a magnet, and you will notice how you are garnering more attention.

A change to this fun occurs around the 11th when Venus aspects Neptune and so a love affair might not go so smoothly around this time, or you get turned down, or a child (if you have any) disappoints you by their behavior.  In other words the blast that you were having has a bit of a hiccup around this date.

The 14th is not a nice day and there will be some upset (as there are no less than three difficult aspects all on the one day) but this will be at work - with a work colleague or boss or you may not be feeling 100% physically.  Mercury will affect communication, so be careful of what you write or say around this time.

The first eclipse of the month is in Libra, a lunar eclipse on the 15th in your house of the hidden, that dark place in your chart, where confusion and upset can reign - but also great insight, peace and spirituality – depending on what is happening around you. 

You can feel a bit ratty or totally suspicious and paranoid.  A secret could be revealed, or you suddenly have a flare up of a health issue.  There is a full moon at the same time (15th) and something may come to an end, or someone or a situation will exit your life. This doesn’t have to be negative, it can feel like a great release and you may feel liberated and empowered by offloading a stifling situation or person.

There is a lot of subconscious stuff going on and underlying emotions that will be “shaken and stirred”, to such an extent in extreme circumstances where you may feel you need professional help.

If you have been in denial about something or keeping it suppressed, it’s all going to burst out from now on.  Expect less (or more restless) sleep and more dreams or nightmares.

There is also a grand cardinal cross that involves Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto (because the four cardinal signs, Aries, Libra, Cancer and Pluto form the cross).  Uranus is in Aries, Mars in Libra, and Jupiter in Cancer and Pluto in Capricorn; so work and health, psychology, subconscious and secrets, travel, education, legalities and foreign affairs, siblings and communication will all figure prominently in events and will all be the areas impacted and they will all intertwine and coexist, and each one will make the other stronger…or more difficult.  

It might not be a bad idea to spend more time alone, and touch base with what you are perhaps keeping from yourself (subconsciously) or in denial about.  In other words sort out what is really bothering you or what you really want.

On the 20th Jupiter squares Uranus and that signifies some hiccup in a legal case, or you get caught speeding, or there is a glitch at work or at University, or on your travels. 

Also on the same day, there is an opposition between Jupiter and Pluto and Pluto is in your siblings, communication, media, publishing and short trips house, so it’s entirely possible around 20-21st that you take a quick trip somewhere but there is some complication or delay. 

There might be an issue with a neighbor or a sibling or legal contracts (or indeed any kind of contracts).

The 22-23 is also littered with difficult planetary aspects, so you will hear something you don’t like and as Mercury enters Taurus on the 23rd you’re probably worried more about a key relationship, with your boss, lover, spouse, friend, sibling etc. 

Mars is opposing both Pluto and Uranus on the 23rd so you should literally circle this as a red-letter day (but not in a good way); best to be very cautious of what you reveal as secrets can be exposed by a slip of the tongue. 

Uranus is in your work sector, so it’s most likely to involve a run in with a co-worker.  Still Uranus is the planet of surprises, so “surprising” news might be an unexpected promotion or job opportunity!

At least there is definitely some good news at the end of the month with the solar eclipse/new moon in Taurus in your relationship sector.  This suggests that whatever has been concerning you about a key relationship could very well be resolved (and indeed, all your connections will improve).  That said, ones that are not meant to be in your life will be “eclipsed” and replaced later on by someone more worthy.

So marriage or divorce, a new relationship, or a breakup, a new job, a new friend – it can have many manifestations – but the aim of the energy is to unite you with someone who is good for you and who can help you grow and flourish.

This energy lasts for most of the year, so relationships will play a major role in your life in the upcoming months.  You either get a great new job, a great new friend, a great new lover…or whatever key alliance you need in your life right now and for the future.

Venus will help you in this regard until early May and the eclipse energy will continue the journey from there.

SAGITTARIUS

Well it’s quite a month, but the action doesn’t really get going until mid April (although there are two squares with an Aries Sun against Jupiter and Pluto and a conjunct with Uranus all in the first three days!).  For most, the first week of April will be a non-event littered with the odd awkward or irksome moment, rather than anything too taxing.

Early in the month Venus enters your house of home and family and that will bring blessings to this area and also make you feel rather contented and at peace with life. 

You seem to be hanging out with the family more or having more dealings with family members, and your Mother in particular.

If your family is at war (instead of resembling the Walton’s), then you do have until early May to smooth things over on the home front

The real action starts around the 11th when Venus aspects Neptune and both are in the part of your chart relating to home and family, so you will need to have the softening energies of Venus to help you get past some upsets on this day (when your loyalties and patience will be tested).

The 14th is not a nice day and there will be some issues (as there are no less than three difficult aspects all on the one day).  This will affect your communication and your love live, and children if you have any.  Therefore you could have “words” with a lover or a child (or if you are a teacher, experienced a difficult situation with a recalcitrant pupil). If you don’t have offspring it could be a friends child or else a neighborhood brat.

The first eclipse of the month is in Libra on the 15th, it’s a lunar eclipse.  At the same time there is a full moon (15th) in your house of groups, friends, VIP’s and this energy can make your social life take off, or make you question how you “fit in” with your group.  Someone may seek your support or you may have a falling out with a friend. You might have problems with a large organization or bureaucracy, or have differing views about an approach and you may wish to take charge or steer this, but encounter resistance. 

A romantic affair can be tested and that may be because you have tried to steer or control the relationship too much and that has brought resistance (or backfired completely).  

A friendship can be under strain and if you’ve been the type who is a Lone Ranger, some changing circumstances in your life are such that you now need to become more of a team player if you are to thrive and be happy (and belong).   You need to be part of your tribe and group, rather than simply hanging on the sidelines and you will understand fully why you need to establish and foster good connections and friendships.

If you are age-appropriate you might discover you are pregnant (or hear news that you are to become a father).

There is also a grand cardinal cross in the third week that involves Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto (because the four cardinal signs, Aries, Libra, Cancer and Pluto form the cross).  Uranus is in Aries, Mars in Libra, and Jupiter in Cancer and Pluto in Capricorn; but as you are not a cardinal sign you won’t feel this as strongly as some of your zodiac siblings.   But love, fun, children, friends, social life, groups, VIP’s, organizations, joint money, inheritances, and money and assets will all be the areas impacted and they will all intertwine and coexist, and each one will make the other stronger…or more difficult.  

On the 20th Jupiter squares Uranus and that signifies some tension at home and in your family life, but specifically to do with joint finances.  You might be nutting out who owns what in a divorce settlement, or even just in terms of joint purchases.  You might be sorting out an inheritance and dividing up an Estate, but joint money and family overlap and are under pressure.

Also on the same day, there is an opposition between Jupiter and Pluto and Pluto is in your money and assets house, so the theme of joint money (debts, inheritances) and even “sexually acquired ”debts, all figure strongly around 20-21st.

The 22-23 is also littered with difficult planetary aspects, so you will hear something you don’t like and as Mercury enters Taurus on the 23rd you’re probably worried more about work, health or some aspect of your daily life. 

Mars is opposing both Pluto and Uranus on the 23rd so you should literally circle this as a red-letter day (but not in a good way); as your money and assets are all in the firing line; as is a romantic liaison.  Or something that you have been looking forward to is cancelled, or an outdoor concert is flooded, or dinner guests withdraw at the last moment; but there will be some kind of disappointment relating to R&R, fun and entertaining.

At least there is some good news at the end of the month with the solar eclipse/new moon in Taurus in your work, health and daily routines sector suggesting that you will feel and look better.

But more importantly you can fix your life up in general.

If you’ve been at loggerhead with someone at work, or in your daily life or some situation has impacted psychologically on your wellbeing, then you can resolve this once and for all and get back to feeling positive and whole about life.

This energy lasts for most of the year so it doesn’t have to happen in April, but you can start to think about this now and the changes that need to be made.

Taurus rules the voice so what you say can have a very therapeutic affect on everyone around you and if you are an MC you’ll be spellbinding.

This energy will give you a new purpose (and having a purpose in life is what gives it meaning). I think you do need to say something about a situation in your life and as Plato observed “wise men speak because they have something to say and fools because they have to say something”.  Now you have something to say and you’ll say it.

CAPRICORN

Well it’s quite a month, and as a cardinal sign you are one of the four in the “firing line”.  But the action doesn’t really get going until mid April (although there are two squares with an Aries Sun against Jupiter and Pluto and a conjunct with Uranus all in the first three days!). 

This may affect you more than most because you have Pluto in Capricorn, and so it will be in the areas of your domestic life and perhaps in your career where there will be some pesky issues.   That said you are personally going through a huge transformation and wiping the slate clean of anyone who doesn’t “fit” into your future picture.  Put it this way, if you don’t the Cosmos will do it for you! So whatever changes you experience in April are part and parcel of the continuing “upgrading” of your life.

Early in the month Venus enters your communications sector and she will bring blessings to all forms of communication and therefore you should be hearing at least one piece of good news during April.  If you are studying you might get a HD or discover you have passed an exam with flying colors.  If you have your own business you might get a lot more sales - or new contracts - and if you have any siblings, you might be spending great times with them (or they tell you some terrific news).

The real action starts around the 11th when Venus aspects Neptune and both are in the same part of your chart, so you might have a cancelled contract, criticism of an important document or some other form of communication, a hassle with a trip, or “words” with a sibling.  But this is a passing moment and Venus is here all month blessing these areas.

The 14th is not a nice day and there will be some upset (as there are no less than three difficult aspects all on the one day).  This will affect your communication within your home, so you could have a row with a family member or something tangible goes wrong with the home. 

You might have it on the market and not get the price you want at auction or the washing machine breaks down or the flat mate announces they are moving out - or the landlord announces they are selling the flat.

The first eclipse of the month is in Libra on the 15th and it is a lunar eclipse. At the same time there is a full moon (15th) and both affect your career and public reputation sector.  Whatever happens is putting you on track towards a more successful future and bringing you more power, either within your career or home (or both!).  Whilst you will be taking charge of both these areas of your life, full moons do tend to signal endings (so perhaps you are making room for something - or someone - more productive).

It’s very possible (with Venus blessing the communications sector all month) that you hear great news about a promotion, or (because of the yin and yang aspects of eclipses) you might be stunned by whatever occurs.

This affects your life purpose and career sector and as eclipses bring changes, you can expect some “biggies” as this area of your life is very important to you. Anything (job, situation, lifestyle, person) that has outworn it’s welcome or is past the “use by” date, is probably now over.

You could decide to head in a new direction and this may be the result of an offer you receive (such as a new job) or that because you have decided to be proactive and take charge.

All Cappy’s are moving forward now, but you may need to clear the decks and at times, that’s going to be a tense or even traumatic process.  It might be minor, like you change jobs or residences, or you let go of (or sell) an unproductive, draining and time-wasting business.

Maybe you give up work responsibilities to concentrate on your family or decide to have another child.  Perhaps you are going separate ways with a life partner (home and family are on the same axis) or if you are not married a female dominatrix at work proves too much to handle and you up and leave.  That said it could be another female within the family (who is like a Matriarch) and causes a change in your life setup.

There is also a grand cardinal cross that involves Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto (because the four cardinal signs, Aries, Libra, Cancer and Pluto form the cross) and as a cardinal sign you will feel this quite strongly.

Uranus is in Aries, Mars in Libra, and Jupiter in Cancer and Pluto in Capricorn.  So home and family and career and public image (and your relationships with the folk at both), and your own ambitions - and how they fit into your home life - will be the areas impacted and they will all intertwine and coexist, and each one will make the other stronger…or more difficult.  

On the 20th Jupiter squares Uranus and that signifies some tension at home and in your family life or some surprising news …or even a shock. 

Also on the same day, there is an opposition between Jupiter and Pluto and Pluto is in your house of Self and your relationships with others, so relationship tests are entirely possible around 20-21st.  Perhaps you feel too stretched or not supported, or that you can’t split your time between your career and your home so that one area feels shortchanged.

The 22-23 is also littered with difficult planetary aspects, so you will hear something you don’t like and as Mercury enters Taurus on the 23rd, you’re probably worried about your child (if you have any) and perhaps about not spending enough time with them.  Or it may be external, such as something that happened at school.  Maybe you wish for another child and that is a discussion with some debate.  This is also affecting the house of love, so a fledgling relationship could end or a hobby-business encounters some difficulties. 

Mars is opposing both Pluto and Uranus on the 23rd, so you should literally circle this as a red-letter day (but not in a good way); as your career and reputation can be damaged.  You are aiming for fame, not infamy, so it’s best to keep you head down on this day and not make any displays - or do something that you may regret later.  There is a possibility for much of the month (especially if you have been misbehaving) that your social status/public reputation could take a hit.  That said, the actions of another could impact on your position in life also.

At least there is some good news at the end of the month with the solar eclipse/new moon in Taurus in your romance, fun, children, siblings and creative sector.

From now on, your social life takes off.  Or you finally realize that you are not loved the way you want to be and not supported by those close to and so you decide to find someone else…or just someone, if you are currently unattached.

A love affair may begin or end, but you will be pushing the envelope in pursuit of fun and pleasure.  You want to start doing the things that make you happy - not anyone else - but your focus will be on your love life. 

As Venus is suggesting short journeys, you might meet someone on a plane or whilst you are away from home base (or away from your “main squeeze”). As Venus is also blessing the sector of siblings, you might meet one of your brother or sister’s friends who quicken your pulse.

If you are already married you might try for a child, but whether it is a new love, a creation, or setting up your own creative business, you are going to take a plunge, a risk and dive right on in. 

You could take a risk for love and run off with a dashing stranger and leave behind a seemingly secure family unit.  Or you might leave to “do your own thing” and live and enjoy life on your own terms for a change.

You are feeling more confident about yourself, and even if at times you do feel outside of your comfort zone, you have to feel that if you are to make any progress…

AQUARIUS

April as I’ve mentioned ten times already, is going to be quite a significant month, although the bulk of the action doesn’t really get going until mid April. 

That said, there are two squares with an Aries Sun against Jupiter and Pluto and a conjunct with Uranus all in the first three days!    This will affect your communications in general, so they may be more strained, or there might be a problem with a contract, or a sibling might piss you off - or a neighbor - but nothing that you can’t handle.

At any rate, with your ruler in “your house” you can run rings around everyone and turn everything around in your favor by using your no. 1 tool, your cleverness and you will amaze yourself - and others - by your skill in unhinging your audience with your straightforward (but insightful) communication.

Don’t be scared of your ability, just go with the flow and seize the opportunity to change your thinking patterns (because only by embracing the myriad of brilliant ideas and new concepts that may suddenly come to you, - such as in the first week - can you discard the old order and transform the status quo). 

Early in the month, Venus enters your house of money and self esteem so this is very beneficial to you in April as it brings contentment and optimism (and an enhanced sense of self worth) no doubt as a result of the feedback that you’re getting. 

With Venus here, the positive feedback is likely to be in the form of a raise or bonus, which is good, as it will pay for all the things that you will be splurging on this month.

You are a very social and friendly sign (even if you can appear somewhat aloof at times) and it will be that ability to network that brings you good fortune this month.  Working lunches, golf days or any social occasion where you can blend business with pleasure will work very well for you.

The real action starts around the 11th when Venus aspects Neptune and both are in this same area of your chart; finances and self esteem, so either could take a bit of a jolt, but this is a passing energy whereas Venus is bringing blessings all month. 

Besides it’s only when Uranus, your ruler, squares off against other planets that you will really feel the pinch (or the “light bulb” moment).

The 14th is not a nice day and there will be some upset (as there are no less than three difficult aspects all on the one day).  This will affect your communication and presentation, so don’t write, say or do anything important, and re-read contracts carefully.  You might hear some distressing news regarding a sibling, and if you have to travel to see someone by car, be careful driving on this day.

The first eclipse of the month is in Libra on the 15th (a lunar eclipse) and at the same time there is a full moon and this will really open up your horizons. 

Perhaps you decide to relocate, or go back to school, but whatever you decide to do, it’s about living life that is more in synch with what you want (even if that includes living in an Ashram) ..which is another possibility.

You will be doing a lot of travelling, and not just around the corner but long distances.  You might take up a job overseas or go for a job interview or explore retirement options/lifestyles in another country or toss in your job to learn a new skill.

Maybe you decide to write a book, but you will want to get more in touch with your spirituality and you certainly want your life to have more meaning; in other words more fun and adventure.

If you are involved in any legal dealings there could be a glitch and if there is any legal paperwork, don’t commit in April, although many of your changes may not happen for another month or two.

There is also a grand cardinal cross that involves Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto (because the four cardinal signs, Aries, Libra, Cancer and Pluto form the cross).  Uranus is in Aries, Mars in Libra, and Jupiter in Cancer and Pluto in Capricorn and so communications in all forms, (especially legal ones), foreign influences, travel, education, internet, publishing, media, work and health and your perspective/outlook will all be the areas impacted and they will all intertwine and coexist, and each one will make the other stronger…or more difficult.  

On the 20th Jupiter squares Uranus and that signifies some tension at work and with communication, but I do think for many Aquarians that a new job is on the horizon and most likely overseas.

Also on the same day, there is an opposition between Jupiter and Pluto and Pluto is in house of the hidden and subconscious and enemies, so you might discover that someone has been undermining you in secret.  Maybe they want your job, or they want to get rid of you or they just don’t like you.  Who knows, but you may very well have an adversary “behind the scenes” and if this is the case, this may become known around 20-21st. 

You might throw in the towel at work, because you’re tired of the game playing, no matter who much they are paying you! 

Actually you’ll get a much more satisfying and rewarding (financially and otherwise) job within a couple of months.

The 22-23 is also littered with difficult planetary aspects, so you will hear something you don’t like and as Mercury enters Taurus on the 23rd you’re probably worried more about your home or home life and you might hear some unsettling news about your Mother.  But this is on the same axis as your career; either of these areas could be at issue.

Mars is opposing both Pluto and Uranus on the 23rd, so you should literally circle this as a red-letter day (but not in a good way); enemies have you in their sites.  At any rate, it’s best to lie low in the next week or so and figure out your next steps and you won’t be in a particularly sociable mood.

At least there is some good news at the end of the month with the solar eclipse/new moon in Taurus in your home and family sector and so for the upcoming year this is where your attention is going to be focused. 

Perhaps you relocate, buy, sell, or get an offer on your home not too long after the eclipse. You might decide to renovate or upgrade your home in some way, but it’s all about finding a domestic setting that feels “right”.  If you feel you are in the wrong home, wrong neighborhood, state or even country, you’re going to change.

If you’ve been a bit distant from your family this will improve over the year also, but almost 100% you’re likely to move to another location before too long …and it’s either because of an ailing or sick parent, or for a more conducive lifestyle.

PISCES

Well April is going to be an “interesting” month and just like the Chinese curse (may you live in “interesting times”) this signals some difficulties for everyone.  You are not a cardinal sign, so you can go under the radar a little bit, although everyone will feel the Cosmic storm energies of April.

The bulk of the action doesn’t really get going until around mid April (although there are two squares with an Aries Sun against Jupiter and Pluto and a conjunct with Uranus all in the first three days!). 

So I think you start April feeling a bit unsure and perhaps even disturbed, by anxiousness or “unknowns”.  Your life is a bit in transition mode at the moment.

But you are especially blessed, because early in the month Venus enters your sign and that is going to make you super appealing to just about everyone. Not only will you be the flavor of the month, but you want to enjoy every flavor as well! 

Romance is big, as is fun and pleasure, and you’ll be doing all sorts of things to make yourself more appealing, Peacock-like (yes fine feathers make fine birds).  You might have cosmetic interventions, buy yourself a new wardrobe, but you are going to be working on “you”.

Pisces are naturally kind and friendly, but you will appear even more charismatic and attractive and you will be going all out to please.

The real action starts around the 11th when Venus aspects Neptune and both are in your sign, so you may have a bit of an image jolt or something affects you personally, as in your reputation. If the earlier planetary action has affected you it will be to do with finances and in some way your image is tied up with this because as sign you do like to show off what you have and strut your successes.

The 14th is not a nice day and there will be some upset (as there are no less than three difficult aspects all on the one day) and you are likely to receive some form of communication that relates to finances and it’s likely to be bad news or a shock.

The first eclipse of the month is in Libra on the 15th (a lunar eclipse) and at the same time there is a full moon (15th) and both of these fall in your house of joint finances.  This may have to do with an Estate/inheritance, a tax debt or some kind of shared resources.

Mars has also been transiting this house of other people’s money since last December (and until July) and is currently retrograding.  So you are likely to be involved with joint ventures or taking out loans, but there are issues to do with money that both parties have a claim to.  If all is well, honest and hard working, then this partnership could be flourishing and make a fortune, however if there have been problems, then this is when they will show.

Something may feel out of control with respect to money and shared finances (or it could be with a sexual obsession that you can’t have) but either way you are feeling angry and frustrated.

There is also a grand cardinal cross in the third week that involves Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto (because the four cardinal signs, Aries, Libra, Cancer and Pluto form the cross).  Uranus is in Aries, Mars in Libra, and Jupiter in Cancer and Pluto in Capricorn and so issues of money - especially the shared kind – sexuality, romance, children, fun, friends, organizations and your social life, will all be the areas impacted and they will all intertwine and coexist, and each one will make the other stronger…or more difficult.

But the main thrust seems to be (shared) money and there will be some financial development, such as a change in your income and that may be a positive or a negative (more money in...or more out).

But it’s not just about money, it’s also to do with self worth and how much you “value” yourself and you’ll feel a bit inclined to show off and reemphasis how much you have.

On the 20th Jupiter squares Uranus and that signifies some tension with a child, or your lover and maybe a child hits you up for some money or your partner goes on a spending spree.  Maybe you take a date out and it costs and arm and a leg and then they tells you over dessert that they don’t see the relationship going anywhere.

Also on the same day, there is an opposition between Jupiter and Pluto and Pluto is in your groups, friends, VIP’s and social life and you could be spending up a storm by entertaining and impressing the right people.

The 22-23 is also littered with difficult planetary aspects, so you will hear something you don’t like and as Mercury enters Taurus on the 23rd there is a double communications aspect that signals some unpleasant news. 

Mars is opposing both Pluto and Uranus on the 23rd so you should literally circle this as a red-letter day (but not in a good way); and so the unpleasant news around these days will relate to shared money and this might relate to your spouse's income, taxes, debts or other shared investments.

By the same token, there is always the possibility of new money coming into your life because Uranus is the planet of surprises….unexpected gains and unexpected losses; both are possible.

Finally there is a tiny risk of an STD as this also affects sexual organs.

At least there is some good news at the end of the month with the solar eclipse/new moon in Taurus in your communications sector so you are going to be very busy in the upcoming year.  There will be more socializing, and more commercial activity, more trips and errands. 

You will be in demand and busy and probably more involved with your community as well. You’ll be doing a lot of travelling and spending more time with siblings if you have any. 

But your great skill from April onwards will be your silver tongue, you will become very persuasive and charming and a skillful negotiator and if you are in sales or an author, you will do exceptionally well.

If you are launching a media campaign in your business it will be very successful, and there will be more contracts, and paperwork connected to your business, (invoices and receipts!) all of which spell more money in.

With a multiple combination of planets affecting Pisces, there will be people who are entwined with you or at least trying to enter your world and maybe your financial one.  Alternatively they may be trying to draw you into theirs, but there is some clouding and deception and you may end up joined in some situation where the ground rules are not clearly laid out.  It’s important that you only get involved in positive enterprises and avoid any form of deception or callousness in your quest to achieve your objectives.  In other words, don’t let money have too much power over your life…

At any rate within the next month or two, if not before, you will receive some sensational news that will make you very happy.
