Aries & Money
Your ruling planet Mercury is in fiery Aries as the month begins where it remains until the 11th. The Sun is here as well until the 20th which means there’s peak planetary energy in your joint finance sector. This is about money matters and getting things sorted.
You may want to leap into action on or after the 1st, when there’s a New Moon in Aries, a symbol of new beginnings. The Sun & Moon sit next to your planet Mercury ruling communication. Listen out for signs and synchronicities the weekend after the New Moon. A conversation or insight you have could help you decide what next.
If you need to make a key decision about a financial matter, the best day could be the Full Moon on the 16th. This is a time when you can trust your intuition and work at balancing the books.
This is important as the Full Moon falls in Libra, the sign of balance. Try not to go it alone when it comes to money but work things out fairly with other people, both personally and professionally.
The Full Moon is a positive time to plug a financial black hole. For example, if you’ve been lending money to a child or lover, consider whether it’s time to stop handing out the cash. If money’s tight, you may decide to stop an expensive hobby, for a while at least.
The first half of April is a good time for initiating new ideas and ventures that can help financially. Aries brings the lure of the new and that may be what’s needed. Stay positive where you can and create the time for a financial review.
Mars & Saturn
Work is also under the cosmic spotlight in the first half of April. This is because Mars and Saturn make a conjunction in Aquarius and your work and health sector on the 5th. Mars here is good for motivation and getting things going, whereas Saturn is the opposite principle, i.e. it stops you in your tracks or holds you back.
This could coincide with a job or project coming to an end. Or, perhaps you’re feeling under the weather and low in energy. Try not to push too hard or give in to fear or doubt while Saturn’s strong.
You’re best to take your time and wait until Mars has moved away from Saturn. Then, you may begin to pick up on Mars’ motivational influence until the 15th and work out a new schedule or consider your next steps.
If you’re a typical Virgo, you’ll enjoy prioritising your health and well-being. It’s part of who you are and worth paying attention to while Mars is in Aquarius.
You are moving into a period in the year when you may have to rethink your career or next steps. Your ruling planet Mercury moves into Gemini and your career sector on the 29th. Yet, on May 10th Mercury turns retrograde so it’s likely to be a stop-start journey regarding your future path for a few months yet.
Where you can dream big this month is regarding your relationships. This is because of the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction in your opposite star sign Pisces on the 12th. This is a once-in-a-lifetime encounter and it could bring something special your way regarding love or a joint venture.
It may be about love for you because the Goddess of love Venus also enters Pisces on the 5th. Venus teams up with romantic Neptune later in the month on the 27th & with lucky Jupiter on the 30th. Therefore, this could be a stand-out time for you regarding a love relationship, whether you’re getting married or you meet the person of your dreams.
Jupiter is the planet of freedom as well, so there may be a theme of liberation. Or, someone close being able to break free from a time of challenge or difficulty and pursue their dreams.
Plus, there’s a theme of investment. It might not only be about love but finding the right business partner or the person to fundraise or sponsor your chosen event.
Notice who comes into your life this month – perhaps a teacher or guru figure, someone who inspires you and can help you live a fuller, richer life. Certainly, it’s a time when you may want to lose yourself in a good way and dive in deep to pursue your desires.
A Wider Calling
In the second half of April, you may have a strong sense of optimism that you’re heading in the right direction and have your sights set on what next. This is because your ruling planet Mercury is in your fellow earth sign Taurus from the 11th to the 29th. The Sun joins Mercury here on the 20th. Taurus rules travel in your horoscope so you may be be dreaming of distant horizons.
Yet, this is also about gaining knowledge, studying, finding meaning in the world, pursuing a spiritual path or a new religion. It’s whatever gives you hope and faith, finding a way to move beyond your everyday routine.
As the planet of change Uranus is active here on the 18th and the 30th, there’s an ‘anything goes’ theme. At times, you may find your energy feels scattered, even frantic. Take deep breaths if this is true for you and hold true to your wants, your desires. Take life one day at a time and do whatever you can to embrace adventure and keep your spirits high.
At the end of the month, there’s a second New Moon called a Black Moon which is also a Solar Eclipse in Taurus, another symbol of change. This powerful eclipse of new beginnings is part of the eclipse cycle which began in November 2021 and completes in October 2023.
A Solar Eclipse is like a turbo-powered New Moon. Wait until the eclipse activity settles and see what landscape is revealed. There may be an unexpected twist of fate linked to this eclipse and it could be to do with someone in your life, a person you meet or an inspirational lover or friend.
The once-in-a-lifetime Jupiter-Neptune conjunction in Pisces is exact on April 12th. We’ve been surfing its waves since February and there’s a way to go yet. It peaks this month, continues into May & there may be a Jupiter-Neptune revival in November/December.
Jupiter-Neptune themes conjure up big dreams, a cultural renaissance, a spiritual awakening, miracles, revelation, awe & wonder. In Pisces, it’s a flood of emotion, a wave of imagination, a rush of compassion & interconnectedness. It’s also wise to avoid fake news, be wary of scams, choose your faith carefully & lose yourself in a good way.
The Jupiter-Neptune conjunction falls in your 7th house ruling your one-to-one relationships. This would be an ideal time to fall deeply in love, to propose or be proposed to, to let go of a relationship that holds you back. You may experience a revelation around Love with a capital L. Other relationships may prosper, whether you attract an investor or find the right teacher. n.b. this is a seductive combination – keep your Virgo common sense intact.
