There’s a creative vibe around you as April gets underway. Mercury is behind this, moving into the most inspired part of your natal birth chart on April 3rd, bringing a touch of genius to your self-expression.
There’s an ambitious energy around too, especially during the Full Moon on April 6th, which shines from the very top of your chart. You can expect some success or recognition for your hard work around this time, which should be cause for celebration.
You may struggle to keep up the momentum at work, however, when Venus changes signs on April 11th. This new Venus transit encourages a more laid-back - even lazy - approach to work, and although you deserve to coast for a little bit it’s not really in your nature to relax to this extent.
It would do you good to save some energy, though, because when a powerful Solar Eclipse hits the roots of your chart on April 20th, you’ll need your wits about you. This Eclipse can bring shocks and surprises to your family life, or to issues connected to your home. This part of your chart also represents the past, so the Eclipse may reawaken an issue you thought had been settled long ago.
Just hours later, the Sun changes signs and heads into the joy zone of your chart, in a light-hearted influence that will help you handle any emotional fallout from the Eclipse.
However, the following day on April 21st, Mercury turns retrograde here and for the following few weeks, you may struggle to express yourself. Try to avoid being pushed into taking unnecessary risks during this retrograde period.
The bad news this month is that Pluto is getting ready to shift back into your sign next month, just for a very brief moment. Yet, you can see this as negative, or you can treat it as a chance to tie up loose ends and close off any unfinished business that began in 2008. Yes, that far back. Pluto was in your sign for a long time, and this month, it is an opportunity to get some needed closure. The good news is that Jupiter, planet of growth and expansion, moves into your creativity and romance sector. Some of you may fall deeply in love, and some of you may birth brilliant new passions and hobbies.
Your ruler, Saturn, goes into retrograde motion on June 17th in your thinking and communication zone. Over the last little while, you’ve likely been pondering what you’ve learned, and what you still have to learn. Your mindset, usually serious, may have become even more focused lately, and you need to be careful of seeing the cup as half-empty. This month, structure your knowledge and see how you can manifest it into the real world. This may entail taking some sort of course, or perhaps even stepping into coaching mode. You have so much wisdom, so don’t doubt yourself for even a second.
