The people factor is strong for you throughout April. This is because talk planet Mercury is in Taurus and your communication sector from the 3rd onwards. The planet of love and relating Venus is here until the 11th. Plus, the Sun enters Taurus on the 20th.
You may spend more time with your siblings, relatives or neighbours over the next few weeks. You might be involved in a community venture, start a teaching job or begin a new course of study.

This includes romance and love affairs, children and pregnancy, entertainment and leisure. Therefore, follow your passion, tap into your creative source and trust your luck. The 7th could be a lovely date for you when Venus teams up with your co-ruler Neptune. This combination is loving and giving with a hint of romance.
Home & Family
Venus’ move into Gemini on the 11th lights up your home and family sector. Venus is the planet of love and relating, art and beauty. This promises happiness at home, as long as you can be flexible and stay connected. You’re one of the mutable star signs being a Sun Pisces, so you thrive on variety in life.
Get out for a daily walk and be around people who lift your spirits. Commit to learning something new and keep your mind and brain lively. You may enjoy hanging out with your family more than usual, for whatever reason.
Also this month, money is a hot topic. This is because the Sun is in Aries and your personal money sector until the 20th and there’s a Full Moon highlighting money on the 6th. This Full Moon cuts across the Aries/Libra axis of the zodiac and the financial sectors of your horoscope.
Full Moons are a positive time to make big decisions, firm up plans and balance the books. Whatever your financial dealings on or around the Full Moon, aim for compromise and a fair outcome.
If things go your way, events on or around the 11th could prove lucrative. This is a special date in the year when your ruling planet Jupiter teams up with the light of the Sun. This planetary event happens approximately once a year and it’s said to be one of the luckiest dates.
The Sun represents your essence and who you’re becoming, your vitality and energy. Jupiter expands what it touches and is linked to growth, opportunity and good fortune. As this falls in Aries and your money sector, you may receive a gift or bonus.
It’s a positive date to take a risk, speculate and believe that anything’s possible. Jupiter encourages you to view the glass half full rather than half empty. It’s a reminder that the more you value yourself and have faith and belief in what you’re doing, the more abundance you’re able to attract into your life.
Solar Eclipse Aries
There is a shift in energy, however, on the 20th. This is the date of a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aries and your money sector. This is the second New Moon in Aries and the first took place on March 21st. Therefore, the two dates may be linked.
The Solar Eclipse on the 20th starts a new eclipse cycle lasting until March 2025 which focuses on your money, possessions and values. As eclipses often coincide with change, you might be shifting your money mindset or want to do things differently regarding your future security and your financial situation.
Sometimes, life steps into bring change your way and it’s always worth noting an eclipse date and being prepared for it. The eclipse itself is not the best time to make a major financial move, especially as this eclipse is square to Pluto, the planet of loss and transformation.
Admittedly, Pluto only perfects its square to the Sun once the Sun has entered earth sign Taurus. Yet, this happens on the same day as the Solar Eclipse, the 20th. Therefore, the two events may be linked.
Money could be an issue in a community project or someone could let you down financially. Or, perhaps you’re wise to think twice before making a major purchase. Don’t rush into things on or around the 20th and there’s another reason why.
This is because, on the 21st, communication planet Mercury turns retrograde and remains on go slow until May 15th. Traditionally, this is not the best time to make a major decision or a significant financial deal or transaction. Wait until mid-May when you have more information at your fingertips.
Plus, Mercury turns retrograde in Taurus, the star sign ruling communication in your horoscope. Therefore, this is potentially a double whammy of communication chaos.
It’s important to back up files and correspondence before the Mercury retrograde phase kicks in. Also, have any transport niggles checked out as Mercury rules transport and trade.
Taurus rules study, education and learning in your horoscope. Taurus is one of the earth signs, slow and steady. Therefore, you’re wise to slow down when Mercury’s on go slow.
Lose yourself reading or learning and create time to repurpose your work or go back to an old project. If you can take a step back from everyday life and slow down the pace, make it happen.
