April’s astrology is forward-moving on the whole and you’re wise to get in flow and in step with this feeling of progress.
This is particularly important for you when it comes to work and money matters. Talk planet Mercury is the last of the inner planets to leave your star sign Pisces on the 4th when it’s time to focus less on personal projects and more on your impact out in the world.
As April begins, there are two planets in Aries and your personal money sector – the Sun until the 19th and the planet of relating, Venus, until the 14th.
From the 4th to the 19th, they are joined by talk planet, Mercury. This combination is quick and speedy. Aries isn’t a star sign that procrastinates or stops to think. Instead, this is about cracking on with what needs to be done.
Home and family affairs may be one reason why money is more important or urgent right now. Action planet Mars is in Gemini and your home and family sector until the 23rd. More importantly, Mercury in Aries and Mars in Gemini are working together from the 4th to the 19th.
This is because these two initiating planets are working in mutual reception. This means they are in each other’s sign of rulership, a helpful and supportive influence. Line up new goals with your family this month and find ways to pool resources or help one another out financially.
You may earn money via your home, whether this includes having a clear out and selling unwanted items or moving in with someone to lower costs. Consider all your options and act swiftly to take advantage of new ideas or opportunities.
Act fast to get things moving with regard to home and family affairs. Sort out important correspondence and have those key conversations, the ones that really matter and make a difference.
Be careful, however, around people who aren’t on your side or who put you down. Pluto’s currently slowing down in Capricorn and your friendship and group sector ready to turn retrograde on the 27th. Before then, Pluto clashes with the inner planets in Aries on the 12th, 16th & 17th.
This coincides with a New Moon in Aries on the 12th, a symbol of new beginnings. You may have to say goodbye to someone or something on or around this date. There’s a theme of endings before you can start over.
And, it’s a good time to keep close tabs on your money and not get involved in anything underhand or corrupt.
Notice who’s helpful in your life and who’s not. Move away from a group, club or society if it doesn’t fit your needs or support your personal growth. Trust yourself and your own money-making initiatives and gravitate towards those people who will back your plans.
Life close to home could get busier from mid-month onwards, when you’re wise to focus on your community. This is when the inner planets begin to move into earth sign Taurus. Venus is the first on the 14th followed by the Sun & Mercury on the 19th.
Taurus rules your siblings and neighbours, your neighbourhood and local surroundings. This is your communication sector and you may find there’s lots to talk about from mid-April onwards.
You could make an effort to find out more about the people in your life, people you see on a daily basis. Taurus’ nature is kind and nurturing. By creating close connections with others, you not only help them but it can benefit your own life too. Reach out to others once Taurus is the sign of the moment.
This is your communication sector so consider what this means for you and how or why you want to speak up or say more. You might sign up to a public speaking course, write in to your local paper or start teaching a class from home. You may choose to help others, either personally or professionally and it’s an ideal time to find your voice.
Online communications are well-starred and this is because of the role of Uranus in Taurus, the planet of change. Uranus rules all things new and modern and is linked to technology.
Uranus is active this month from the 23rd to the 30th. These are dates when you may leap into action & things happen fast. Sometimes, Uranus can lead you down an unexpected path or take you on a diversion.
The Full Moon dominates on the 27th and lights up the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac. This is the time to broaden your horizons, expand your learning, think and research. Some people in your life could have a deep effect upon you during this Full Moon period.
Love & Passion
Finally, love could bring adventure your way towards the end of April. This is because passion planet, Mars, enters Cancer and your romance sector on the 23rd.
The period around the Full Moon feels especially passionate. Mars is adding heat to your close relationships. Whether it is passion or anger that ignites may depend on your current situation. Know that you have Mars in this part of your horoscope throughout May and for the first half of June.
