April’s vibes are very interesting and a bit volatile as four planets have direction changes. Mercury goes retrograde on April 9th at 4 degrees of Taurus back through 24 degrees of Aries, turning direct on May 3rd. Venus goes direct and becomes visible in the east before dawn on April 15th at 26 degrees of Pisces. This is a powerful time as Venus is exalted in Pisces and wants her pleasures and indulgences. Resist the urge to spend a lot of money but do enjoy life, art, women and the beauty of nature at this time. The Goddess energy must be satisfied!
Saturn goes retrograde on April 6th at the Galactic Center of 27 degrees of Sagittarius back through 21 degrees of Sag, turning direct on August 25. Things that began in January will need some adjustment to correct their course during this time period. Saturn in this sign seeks stability, truth, right action and sustainability. Finally, Pluto turns retrograde on April 20th at 19 degrees of Capricorn revealing more darkness from the deeper realms of the collective subconscious of the masses, the business world and the energy of transformation as well.
The houses these planets are transiting in your natal chart is where you will feel the energy most directly, as well as the houses these planets rule. It should be an eventful month with some surprising events unfolding. Stay positive in your life. Namaste!
Read your sun sign and rising sign for best information:
March 21-April 20
With your ruling planet, Mars, in Taurus until 20th, you should be able to establish a more solid direction in your life and accomplish your goals. Make an effort to get along with people and stop being so easily angered as it will harm your reputation. You can sometimes be your own worst enemy with that temper of yours. Don’t sign any contracts after the 9th and wait until the middle of May for any major commitments. Your best days for gains are the 24th and 25th.
April 21-May 20
Your planetary ruler, Venus, will be in retrograde motion until the 15th, turning direct at 26 degrees of Pisces, its sign of exaltation. The last 2 weeks of April will be very productive and a potentially lucrative period as you will be really in the flow of positive things. The power of attraction is working for you at that time so make good choices. Be careful about signing any contracts or firm commitments until after Mercury goes direct on May 3rd. Your power days are the 26th and 27th.
May 21-June 21
With both the creative and the friends, hopes and wishes parts of your chart very active this month you would be wise to accept all social invitations and make yourself known. Your ruling planet, Mercury, does its retrograde dance from April 9th through May 3rd so there’s potential for misunderstandings and weird communication snafus. Plus the Mercury Rx dictum of “don’t sign and don’t buy”, contracts and big ticket items anyway for the retrograde period. Stay positive and promote yourself on the 1st, 28th and 29th.
June 22-July 22
The career and public image parts of your chart get a big boost of energy this month which should give you more opportunities to make an impact or expand your business. You might also consider moving to a new location over the next couple of months. Be open as some interesting offer will start you thinking about it. Don’t sign any contracts till the middle of May, even if you feel pressured. Remember, you need to feel very secure about all the details to be happy. Enjoy life on the 2nd, 3rd, daylight hours of the 4th and 30th.
July 23-Aug 22
You are getting lots of attention regarding your professional life and business right now. If you have any opportunity to get your face in front of the public in the next 2 months, this is time to do it. Be careful what you say, however, as the Mercury Rx from the 9th through early May could garble your message. Still, this is a time for positive gains and self promotion. The 5th and 6th hold lots of promise for you.
Aug 23-Sept 22
With the North Node leaving your sign this month, you will start to feel less obsessed about achievement, money and status. Things start to look up in the last 2 weeks of the month as Venus going direct brings benefits to you and your partner. Take some time off as your business will really take off in May. With your ruler, Mercury, going retrograde from April 9th through May 3rd, you will have lots to think about future plans. Your best days are the 7th and 8th.
Sept 23-Oct 23
With your ruling planet, Venus, currently in retrograde motion until April 15th, you are still working behind the scenes and scrambling to get your money and work life untangled. Communications could be dicey after the 9th so confirm everything and back up your computer files. The full moon on the 10th is in your sign and cozying up to Jupiter which signifies a positive turning point. Do something nice for yourself on the 9th and 10th.
Oct 24-Nov 22
The last half of the month can really boost your creative output and bring you a great deal of satisfaction. The recognition for it will come later. Be satisfied that you have such vision, depth and perception. Partnerships demand your time and attention so plan for that in your life this month, especially after the 15th. You will also need to be frugal for the next 5 months but you can enjoy life on the evening of the 11th, the 12th and 13th.
Nov 23-Dec 21
With Saturn going into its retrograde motion phase from April 6th through August 25th, you are going to revise or revisit something in your life. Saturn doles out lessons as it passes through a sign and he’s not through with you yet! You need focus and inspiration to stay positive and since you hate to be bored take up some kind of study or physical discipline to engage your mind and body. What you waiting for—do it! Best days for you are the 14th, 15th and 1st half of the 16th.
Dec 22-Jan 20
Pluto in your sign will go into its retrograde motion phase from April 20th through September 27th. It’s a slow mover that one, so the transformational transit of Pluto in Capricorn continues to dredge up old patterns, old friends and possibly old enemies as well. Be upfront and honest and don’t compromise your integrity as you will be tested. Your power days are the 17th and 18th.
Jan 21-Feb 20
Communications, siblings and neighbors take up a lot of your focus this month and a situation that has been stagnate for a long time could get the breakthrough after the full moon on the 10th. With that energy freed up you might consider getting involved with some humanitarian group or contribute to your community in some way. Best days to expand your horizons are the 19th, 20th and 21st.
Feb 21-Mar 20
Venus dips back into your sign this month which should bring some interesting pleasures with it. Take a trip to some exotic beach destination or go on a cruise! Whatever comes your way, just enjoy it and don’t look back. Work will be demanding your attention as well and something from the past will need some revision. But that’s life for you. Enjoy everything on the 22nd and 23rd.
