Happy Birthday Aries! The first half of April sees Mercury still lagging in Pisces, going direct on the 4th. Outer planet Neptune is here as well (as usual) and so is Chiron. Pisces is your solar sign of going within. With Mercury here, the indication is that if you want answers to nagging questions, however mundane (like ‘where should I go on vacation if I ever get one?’), you should consult yourself and not the travel magazines.

The month begins with a full moon in Libra on the 6th, just four days after Venus moves out of your sign. Libra is the designated relationship sign of the zodiac and a full moon in the relationship sign can indicate that a relationship matter is either culminating or running out of gas. Either situation can trigger strong emotions.
The prudent course would be to keep your relationship expectations modest during the first week of April so that the temptation to overreact to news doesn’t take hold and drag you off to upsetness land. (more…)
There are many things to talk about in April, but I’ll start with your career–a theme I’ll keep emphasizing as we transition through the early stages of Neptune in your solar career house. Neptune in Pisces is a double wallop of a certain kind of drama-loving energy. If you don’t love drama already, try to learn to at least tolerate it. (more…)
We’ve got a combination earth energies in April, Cancer, as we have been having for a number of months now. For you, the new moon in Taurus on the 21st, combined with Jupiter in Taurus and Mars going direct in Virgo on the 13th, spells golden opportunities to network, self-promote, chat people up, sell, and persuade. (more…)
You may want to travel in April, Leo. April is Aries month, and Aries is your solar travel sign. Aries likes to travel to explore, to discover, for adventure, rather than for any practical purpose.
Meanwhile, Jupiter, the travel planet, is in your career house right now, and we have a new moon in your career sector on the 21st. So, some of you might like to combine business or professional travel with recreational or adventure travel this month if you can. (more…)
The danger-craving portion of your chart is activated in April, Virgo. Did you know you have a danger-craving part of your chart? You do. It’s Aries in your solar 8th house. Your Aries nature’s idea of a good movie is one with plenty of action, daredevil stunts and satisfying explosions.
Yup, that’s how your chart escapes from everyday reality–with fantasies of violence, mayhem and pointless destruction. And that kind of entertainment is good for you. It provides an antidote to your Virgo sun sign’s tendency to repress all that and behave sensibly. So maybe a trip to The Hunger Games or a flick of similar ilk would be just what the doctor ordered for you in April. (more…)
Good news! Your ruler Venus enters the sign of Gemini in early April and she doesn’t leave until early August. In your solar chart, Gemini represents your 9th house. The 9th house deals with a variety of things including travel, your plans and aspirations, study and education, courts and legal matters, and the big philosophical questions of life. Venus rules things like beauty, tact, diplomacy, charm, love, money, manipulation and an indirect method of accomplishing things. Since Venus will be in Gemini for so long, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to mix and match these various attributes of Venus in the 9th house. (more…)
On April 3, Venus moves into Gemini for a very long stay, until August. Venus usually stays in a sign for only a few weeks, but this year she wants to stay in Gemini for almost as long as is astronomically possible. In your solar chart, Gemini represents the 8th house, the sector of deepness, sex, debt, and sometimes shopping. Quite a combination! Venus represents beauty, so all kinds of possibilities are present for using this transit. (more…)
Mars goes direct in your career house on the 13th, after a rather long retrograde. This isn’t a strong enough influence to indicate a radical change in your career, but it could indicate a slight change of direction. Mars has been in your career house since last November, so whatever happens should theoretically be a result of whatever you have been involved in since that time. Stay open to potentials for growth on this front all month, but especially around mid-April. (more…)
In the early part of the month, we have a full moon in Libra on the 6th. This full moon relates to your career and may indicate that something is wrapping up or ending or that you need to tie up loose ends with regard to a career matter. Keep your eyes open for matters that need to be completed with a personal touch. With Saturn still in this sector of your chart until October, it might be wise to remember that when a chapter ends, the book doesn’t. There is still a lot to be written, but Saturn has a tendency to want something to end during his stay in this house, seemingly on the theory that the next chapter will be even better than the current one. (more…)
For a couple of years now, you’ve had Saturn in Libra telling you not to be impulsive in matters of the intellect. And for a couple of years now, you’ve had Uranus in Aries telling you to be as impulsive as possible in matters of the intellect and to do and think everything more quickly.
In April, the sun and Mercury in Aries jump into the fray to throw in their two cents. They want you to talk, talk, talk, talk or think, think, think. And they probably wouldn’t mind if you got in an argument or two. (more…)
April has a distinct Aries flair, as is often the case. The month opens with the sun in Aries, and it finishes with Mercury in Aries, and all throughout Uranus in this sign stirs things up, as is his wont. The inner planets in Aries work (hopefully) to sharpen your mind when it come to finances. The planets in Aries team up with Venus in Gemini, a beautiful placement for improving your home life, and one which also likes to talk and think about money! All these planets encourage quick financial action and healthy curiosity. They’re shrewd. (more…)
