Perhaps, you have your eye on the bigger picture and you want to improve your knowledge, find a religion that suits you or pursue a spiritual path.
Do what feels right for you and experiment with different ideas and experiences. Mars in Cancer is encouraging you to go with the flow and tap into your creative and spiritual source.
Routine & Health
Yet, this is a good month to put some time and thought into your routine, your well-being and health. This is because the Sun is in Aries and your work and health sector until the 20th.
You may have lots of ideas regarding your work and Aries is the star sign that’s about embracing all things new. It’s an ideal time to sow seeds and see what grows or flourishes from them.
The stand-out date for Aries activity is the 11th when there’s a lucky Sun-Jupiter conjunction. This takes place approximately once a year and is said to be a combination that promises good fortune.
Certainly, it’s an ideal time to show other people who you are, to play big and take a risk. If there’s a job you’ve got your eye on, reach out and introduce yourself on or around the 11th.
Sometimes, this combination coincides with good news or a sense of well-being and optimism. Focus on your physical fitness and do what you can to stay strong and healthy. Your ruling planet Mars is linked to the physical body and boosting your strength can help focus your mind and strengthen your spirit.
The Full Moon on the 6th could be important when it comes to your well-being. This Full Moon falls in Libra and the most hidden sector of your horoscope. This may be about taking care of yourself and other people. Take time out if needed and stop and reassess where you can be most useful.
You could decide to take on a volunteering role or adopt a pet. Find a sense of meaning and purpose in your everyday life and help others. This is where fulfilment lies.
Solar Eclipse Aries
On the 20th, there’s a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aries right at the end of the star sign. This is the second New Moon in Aries and the first took place on March 21st. Therefore, the two dates could be linked.
A New Moon promises new beginnings but your ruling planet Pluto is involved and this evokes the theme of an ending. This is eclipse lore too, that something new can only begin when you’re ready to close a door on the past.
This is the first in a new eclipse cycle that will continue until March 2025 and there will be three powerful Solar Eclipses in Aries, one each year, accelerating your growth and linked to your work and health.
Your health may be a priority this month. Or, perhaps you’re ready to step back from a 9-to-5 role to follow your true vocation. Tread gingerly at first and notice where your heart lies. Take your time.
Look out for external events which could determine what happens. The square to Pluto only perfects once the Sun has moved into Taurus and your opposite star sign. This takes place on the 20th.
Therefore, it may be what happens in your partner’s life or at home or within your family that determines what next for you.
A new job could necessitate a move. Or, perhaps you put your partner first and encourage them to follow their path in life. This can play out in different ways but be alert and vigilant to what happens.
As April begins, love planet Venus is in your opposite star sign Taurus ruling your relationships, both personal and professional. If you’re looking for love, the 7th is a stand-out date.
Plus, talk planet Mercury enters Taurus on the 3rd and the Sun is here from the 20th. Sometimes, you find that other people dominate your life when planets are in Taurus. This moves the emphasis away from you and your life and your actions are more dependent on other people.
At the very least, people count and it’s a good month to ensure you’re on the right side of other people. Perhaps, you’re aware of your enemies too or your competitors. This isn’t a month to go it alone.
Also, it’s important to note that communication planet Mercury turns retrograde in Taurus on the 21st and remains on go slow until May 15th.
This isn’t the time to make a major decision on the love or partnership front. Sometimes, someone goes quiet on you and you have to play a waiting game.
Yet, Mercury retrograde in your relationship sector could bring someone from your past back into your life. Take your time getting to know someone new and don’t rush. Taurus season favours a slow and steady approach to life.
Finally this month, there’s lively planetary activity in air sign Gemini once the planet of relating moves here on the 11th. Gemini rules joint finances in your horoscope.
This is linked to all financial transactions, such as mortgages, inheritances, taxes, debts and savings. This is where you may need to turn your attention from mid-April onwards and get things moving sooner rather than later.
On the 11th, Venus aligns with your co-ruler Pluto in Aquarius and your home and family sector. Create strong alliances and listen to what an adviser or expert has to say.
Gemini rules the sector of your horoscope that’s about all things taboo, i.e. money, sex, power, death & rebirth. This is your domain if you’re a typical Scorpio. Therefore, you might be diving deep into unknown territory in the month ahead and be ready to explore life to the full.
