Aries & Money
The Sun is in fire sign Aries up until the 20th which means there’s prominent planetary energy in your joint finance sector. This is about money matters and getting things sorted.
If you need to make a key decision about a financial matter, the best date is the Full Moon on the 6th. Full Moons shine a light on your situation and can bring clarity and illumination. This is a time when you can trust your intuition and work at balancing the books.
This might be important as the Full Moon falls in Libra, the star sign linked to balance. Try not to go it alone when it comes to money but work things out fairly with other people, both personally and professionally.
Also, it’s a good month for initiating new ideas and ventures that could help you financially. The stand-out date is the 11th when there’s a lucky Sun-Jupiter conjunction in Aries. This combination only happens once a year and may coincide with a gift, bonus or a burst of good fortune.
Jupiter is the planet linked to new opportunities, growth and expansion. Anything that begins under a Jupiter transit promises success. Therefore, notice who or what comes into your life on or around the 11th. Show willing and take a risk.
Also this month, air signs are strong and they represent your work and career, your future path. The planet of relating Venus moves into Gemini and your career and vocation sector on the 11th.
This may be your cue to find your team and get the right people on your side. Use your connections if you’re looking for work or worthwhile ways to spend your time.
Venus rules women in astrology, so seek out your female friends or women in a position of influence. Gemini’s the communicator. Keep the lines of communication open and focus on your future path, your next steps. Get on the right side of someone in a position of authority and you could land a job, new contract or role in the month ahead.
Solar Eclipse Aries
There’s a shift in energy after the 20th. This is the date when there’s a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aries. This is the second of two New Moons in Aries. The first took place on March 21st and the two dates may be linked.
This is the start of a new eclipse cycle which cuts across the Aries/Libra axis of the zodiac and the financial axis of your horoscope. It will complete in March 2025.
This is about money and legacy for you, what you leave behind and what gets passed on. It’s about the physical world and the metaphysical world and finding your place within the two. This process could be cathartic so dare to dive deep into the emotional realm and the world of the psyche.
The Solar Eclipse on the 20th, a powerful symbol of new beginnings, could coincide with an ending. This is because the planet Pluto is square to the Sun & Moon, the planet linked to endings and transformation.
Yet, before the Sun and Pluto perfect their square aspect, the Sun leaves Aries and enters earth sign Taurus and your travel and study sector.
Perhaps, travel or study plans have to be cut short because of a financial issue. Or, maybe events turn around 180 degrees and you recognise where your priorities lie, what’s possible and what’s not.
There’s a strong emphasis on the earth sign Taurus in your horoscope throughout April. Your ruling planet Mercury is here from the 3rd and the planet of love and relating Venus is in Taurus until the 11th. Plus, the Sun moves into Taurus on the 20th.
Therefore, you may be making plans to travel. Or, perhaps you’re on a sabbatical from work. See where you’re being called this month and what you’re drawn towards.
Taurus not only rules travel and study, but religion and faith, publishing and the Law. It’s any activity that broadens your horizons and increases your knowledge.
There is some tricky astrology later in the month, however, and if you’re travelling or leading a workshop, you’re wise to be super flexible. This is because communication planet Mercury turns retrograde in Taurus on the 21st and will remain on go slow until May 15th.
You might have to change your plans and suddenly, so be aware of this. Eclipses can coincide with change and the two events happen one day after the other on the 20th & 21st. One door may have to close before a new door opens to you.
Mid-May could turn out to be a better time to travel or study as this is when Taurus energy is strong. If your plans do change, try and be accepting of your situation. Mercury retrograde can be a promising time to take a step back, slow down and rethink where you’re heading and why.
Finally, there’s a strong emphasis on your close connections as action planet Mars is moving through Cancer and your friendship sector. Therefore, it might be an emotional month, a time when you realise the power and strength of love.
Mercury and Mars come together on the 8th and again on the 24th when Mercury’s retrograde. Therefore, someone from your past could come back into your life. Alternatively, you may be taking a trip down memory lane.
