The emphasis this month is on work and money matters and getting things right in these areas. This isn’t necessarily an easy thing to do but it’s wise to pay close attention to what’s happening.
Mars & Saturn
Firstly, the Mars/Saturn conjunction on the last day of March took place in Aquarius and your joint finance sector. Mars is a planet that likes to get things moving whereas Saturn tends to slam on the brakes.
This combination can generate fear or doubt around money. Events at the start of April may coincide with a drop in income or financial support.
If this is true for you, it’s important to dig deep and get organised. Aquarius is a star sign linked to online initiatives, so you might be applying for financial support or be checking your savings/investments. Mars begins to pull away from Saturn and any tensions could start to ease from the 11th onwards.
Yet, you may need to make some tough decisions, especially on or around the 7th. This is when Mars clashes with unpredictable Uranus. Traditionally, this is not the time to take a major risk.
Throughout the rest of April, Mars is dominant in Aquarius and you are wise to take the initiative and push for answers or solutions. This applies to all forms of joint finances, including mortgages, tax, debt, alimony, inheritance, savings, etc.
Aries & Your Career
At the same time, there’s strong emphasis on Aries and your career and vocation sector. The Sun remains here until the 19th and talk planet Mercury is in speedy Aries from the 11th to the 27th. Aries is a go-getting and dynamic star sign, great for starting over and considering your next steps.
The Full Moon on the 8th could be significant in this respect as it cuts across the Aries/Libra axis of the zodiac and the foundations of your horoscope. Emotions could run high during the Full Moon period but it’s a positive time to make any decisions to strengthen your foundations at home.
Aries is a classic symbol of being self-employed or running your own business when it falls in your career or vocation sector. Be pro-active when it comes to your next steps and keep your eye on the future. What you start this month could pay off big-time in 2021.
Taurus & Your Friends
Friends are also key for you this month and over a longer time period. Innovative Uranus is in Taurus and your friendship and group sector and is particularly active towards the end of the month. This is when the personal planets begin to move into this same sector of your horoscope.
The Sun is in Taurus from the 19th onwards and there’s a New Moon here on the 23rd. A New Moon is a symbol of new beginnings, an ideal date to join a house party online or reconnect with old and new friends alike. Many connections are moving online, so get in the know and line up some new initiatives.
The Sun is conjunct Uranus on the 26th, talk planet Mercury enters Taurus on the 27th and is conjunct Uranus on the 31st (May 1st in some countries). Put this altogether and the end of the month feels lively for you, especially around friendship and staying connected with others.
However, there is a flip side to Uranus which is about feeling disconnected and split off from others. Ensure you’re around people who lift your spirits and try not to be your own worst enemy. Also, watch out for people in your life who don’t respect you and make snap decisions to keep yourself safe.
Love is under the cosmic spotlight this month but it’s a weird witches brew. Firstly, love planet Venus enters Gemini and your previous star sign on the 3rd where it remains for an unusually long time until August 7th. This is because Venus turns retrograde next month, i.e. will be on go slow.
Traditionally, when Venus is here this can be a time of forbidden feelings, a secret affair or unrequited love. Love feels private or secretive. You may be penning a love letter or creating wonderful poems. You may be pondering your own feelings and what love means to you. The 4th is an important date when Venus aligns with Saturn, a symbol of commitment.
Also, there’s big planetary activity in Capricorn and your relationship sector this month. On the 5th, there’s the first of three meetings between Jupiter and Pluto. They meet again on June 30th and November 12th and this theme acts a backdrop to your year.
Jupiter’s plentiful and expands what it touches. Pluto represents extremes, deep obsession, also endings. You may be in a love relationship that feels all-consuming, you may want or need to break free from a partnership. Or perhaps, you are separated from the one you love.
This is big astrology which kicks in throughout April. It peaks on the 14th/15th and again on the 25th/26th. You’re being invited to take a long hard look at your 1-to-1’s, both personal and professional.
Any issues around power and control could escalate this month. Or, you discover a teacher, coach or mentor who transforms your life. One way or another, relationships are currently powerful and may change or redefine who you are.
