April will be a busy month, with Mercury, planet of communications, going direct on the 8th and Mars, planet of instigation, going direct on the 20th. After the 20th, things will continue moving forward until mid-May. This is the right time to get your projects started and new ideas into play. The Full Moon in Libra on Good Friday, April 6, will make us more conscious of the balance we need in our lives. The New Moon on the 21st directs us to be more mindful of our values and sense of self-worth. • Positive days this month are the 9th, 22nd, 23rd, and 29th. Make good use of these. Days to keep a watchful eye are the 4th, 5th, 7th, 13th, 15th, and 25th. • Pluto is going retrograde on the 10th. This will impact the Arians, Cancerians, Librans, and Capricorns the most—especially those of you born between the 28th and the 3rd in those signs. You will be digging deeper to know yourself better, cleaning out even more stuff.
ARIES (March 21–April 19). Happy Birthday to all the Rams and Ewes. Your birthday month finds you more introspective and not as active. You will get your energy back after the 20th. Career and work are weighing heavily on you. You are trying to get your life under control by eliminating the things in your life that are blocking you. Watch your spending this month. You may be able to make some good investments or seek a raise after the 20th. You are looking to reconnect with your current partner via new long-term goals. Money and investments are more important at the end of the month.
TAURUS (April 20–May 20). You are more introspective this month, and selective about whom you are letting be around you. You are looking for a ready escape from your routines. There are plenty of new things out there for you, but you don’t feel the urge to move just yet. You are ready to be much more social, and you’ll be more motivated after the 20th. There are even some new people on the horizon for you to meet. Keep improving your health routines.
GEMINI (May 21–June 21). You are reexamining your career goals and looking at where you work. Things might have seemed more problematic at work with Mercury, your ruler, retrograde. But you are clearing that up and should be back to normal after the 8th. You are still in a more creative mode, continuing to look for meaningful career opportunities. This is a great month for you to get involved in social or community groups. They will provide you with lots of new career options. You’ll be ready for a short break by the end of the month.
CANCER (June 22–July 22). Career activities are still very dynamic. You are working on a long-term plan to reinvent yourself or what you do. You have been taking care of loose ends this month with Mercury retrograde, so it may not look as though you are gaining ground. Family matters are still hard to solve, but don’t be afraid to be the adult and take charge. They don’t have to like it. You are ready to push forward with your new ideas at the end of the month. You will also be much more social than you have been in a while.
LEO (July 23–August 22). With the planets moving through your solar house of travel and education, you have been much more open and adventurous this past month. That trend continues in April as you seem hungry to learn new things. Some of you are directing this shifting focus to your career and looking for opportunities in those very areas. People are very receptive to you this month, and your situation improves even more toward the end of the month. Watch your spending—you could be impulsive this month.
VIRGO (August 23–September 22). You are still dancing with Mars retrograde in your sign. You could feel a bit more edgy, angry, and bitchy. You have a lot of energy at this time, but you have a hard time letting it out. Some low-level physical activity would be good for you. After the 20th, you are ready to get out there and make your life happen. Plenty of energy to push forward and tackle those new endeavors. You will have more sexual energy that could make your partner’s life a lot better. Your career continues to improve, and could take off in June. Get ready.
LIBRA (September 23–October 23). Relationships have been unsettled this month. You are not ready to have the same type of relationship you’ve had in the past, even if you keep the same partner. You are thinking long-term and trying to plan for the future in both relationships and career. You have had some time to really rethink the direction in your life. Toward the end of the month, you are ready for more intimacy, more truth, and more emotional connections with your partner.
SCORPIO (October 24–November 21). Partnerships are working out well this month. If you are in a relationship, this is a great time to be with your partner, especially if you can expand your partnership to include working together. If you are single, you can find someone new to date after the 20th—unless you want to date someone from your past, which is okay. Work is still erratic, and it’s hard to put your finger on what is wrong. That will all clear up after the 10th.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22–December 21). With Mars retrograde in your career sector, you are certainly rethinking what you do and whom you work with. Issues that might have been smoldering have made their way to the surface. You don’t feel like people are listening to you, and you just have to keep talking louder and louder until they do. Watch your temper on the 6th and 7th. Relationship opportunities continue to be opening up, and they’ll improve even more after mid-June.
CAPRICORN (December 22–January 19). You are focused on home and family issues this month. This could mean that you are having some conflicts with your family over whose needs are addressed first. Some of you are considering moving or remodeling. This can also show up as family members make some big changes in their lives. You are looking for more emotional stability in your life, and you won’t settle for anything less. Career energies are more stable, but you are still looking.
AQUARIUS (January 20–February 18). You are in a highly energized time from now until the end of July. You are feeling compelled to get things cleaned up, get old stuff out of your way, and make your life a lot more fun. Some of you will still feel a bit trapped. You are clear about your communications this month, saying what you think at lightning speed. Toward the end of the month, you are putting more and more focus into your home. It’s a good month for some remodeling.
PISCES (February 19–March 20). With retrograding Mars in your relationship arena, you and your partner may not be getting along so well. If you are, then you are out creating new interest in your relationship, or off on an adventure with your partner. If you aren’t getting along, it’s because you’re discussing the same old problems. You are full of new money ideas. Try to put these into your work or business. This could even be a time when you are considering doing something on your own. You’ll be feeling more stable at the end of the month.
