Mercury In Pisces
Your ruling planet Mercury remains in Pisces and your career and vocation sector until the 11th. Mercury’s been here for a long time since early February, moving backwards and forwards. The theme of uncertainty remains in April as Mercury teams up with Neptune, Pisces’ co-ruler, on the 4th.
Sometimes, this transit can feel as if you’re walking through a fog, unsure of where you’re heading. Yet, some of you may experience the opposite and feel inspired by your future path. Certainly, it helps to develop a spiritual aspect to your life and tend to your inner world.
Uranus – The Lure of the New
This is the theme of Uranus’ move through Taurus, your previous sign. This is a long-term change or shift taking place, perhaps moving you from one chapter in your life to another. New vistas opening up, new ideas and requirements unfolding.
Uranus kicks in this month once the Sun enters Taurus on the 19th. Traditionally, this is the time for you to retreat, trust your intuition and listen to your inner voice.
Rest and retreat are part of the package when the Sun’s in earth sign, Taurus, reconnecting you to the earth and a slower pace of life. Your ruler Mercury also moves into Taurus on the 27th and connects with Uranus on the 31st (May 1st in some countries).
With Uranus here, there’s liveliness, electricity even. You may feel ready to act fast and respond to the major changes unfolding in our world. This kicks in on the New Moon in Taurus on the 23rd, a symbol of new beginnings.
This is followed swiftly by the Sun’s conjunction with Uranus on the 26th, a key date for innovative ideas and turning inwards to seek solutions or answers. There may be times this month when you feel as if things are falling apart before they can be rebuilt. Try not to let anxiety take hold and learn to slow down the breath.
Friends & Groups
You are being called out into the world as well. The Sun’s in Aries and your friendship and group sector until the 19th. Most importantly for you, your planet Mercury, moves through Aries from the 11th to the 27th. This awakens the extrovert side of your character, the part of your nature that likes to be around other people.
Aries brings with it a sense of the new and there are currently so many new initiatives and ways of staying connected online. Dive into something new this month, start a House Party and find ways to stay connected within society and within key groups in your life. You may choose to volunteer or lead the way with new ventures in your local community.
Remember this is a two-way deal. Be there for friends and bring laughter and lightness to other peoples’ lives. Also, ask for help and support when it’s needed. Reach out to others to benefit one another’s lives.
Mars & Saturn
There will be times in April when you experience a sense of frustration, especially as you’re one of the mutable star signs, who likes to be on the move. The Mars/Saturn conjunction which fell on the last day of March dominates moving into April.
This powerful combination falls in Aquarius and your travel and study sector. Mars is speedy whereas Saturn is slow, limiting and restrictive. You could decide to cancel a holiday under these stars or let go of a plan to study.
Once Mars breaks free from Saturn, on or around the 11th, any frustrations or disappointments will begin to ease. Then, Mars’ active nature benefits you when it comes to learning, gaining knowledge and finding new ways to expand your horizons and seek meaning in the world.
What really helps you this month is the emphasis on air signs, Gemini, Libra & Aquarius. You need things to look forward to as you’re the curious star sign. Find ways to feed your lively nature.
Venus’ move into Gemini on the 3rd is gorgeous for love and for falling in love with life. This is going to be a long transit of Venus in your personal sector, as it remains here until August 7th. This is because Venus turns retrograde, i.e. will be on go slow in a month’s time.
This means that love is important to you and it’s an ideal time to tend to your close relationships, to connect and reconnect with people who are dear to your heart. If you’re in a relationship or married, you could grow closer still over the coming weeks.
Plus, the Full Moon on the 8th falls in Libra, another romantic sector of your horoscope. This lights up your creativity sector and the things you give birth to, including children. Do more of what you love on or around the Full Moon. Life’s calling you out to find the beauty in the world and in your immediate surroundings.
Jupiter Pluto Conjunction
Finally, this month, the major Jupiter-Pluto conjunction falls in Capricorn and your joint finance sector on the 5th. This is the first of three connections between Jupiter, representing expansion, and Pluto, the dwarf planet. Together, they represent big power and wealth and this is likely to be a significant time for the money markets – expect huge swings.
Therefore, the advice is to stay on top of your finances, whatever your current situation. If you’re dealing with debt, take action to seek benefits or cut your losses. If you have the possibility of winning big financially, take a well-calculated risk.
There are some hot-spot moments for money matters for you, especially around the 14th/15th and 25th/26th. You may receive an inheritance or you may be asking for a loan. Do what you can to help others but be wary of financial agreements. This isn’t the best time to get involved with other people – especially friends – when it comes to money.
