April 2019 Forecasts
I think it’s safe to say that after the wild ride of March’s Mercury Rx and Uranus entering Taurus we are all looking for a relatively calmer period in April. This is mainly true as Mercury will clear its retrograde path through the end of Pisces on April 17, giving ample opportunity to correct any wrong turns you may have taken during the retrograde period. Venus in her exaltation sign of Pisces through 4/21 helps us all enjoy the pleasures of life and joys of spring during this time. Mars is in Gemini throughout the month, giving more opportunities to be active socially and communicate your enthusiasm to others.
We do, however, have 3 planets going into retrograde motion this month with Jupiter beginning a 4 month Rx on April 10th at 24 degrees of Sagittarius. Then Pluto goes Rx on 4/24 for 5.5 months at 23 degrees of Capricorn and Saturn taking its turn on 4/29 for 4.5 months at 20 degrees of Capricorn. For those people with planets in the mid to 23 degree range of cardinal signs, this is your opportunity to get solid with your path of right action.
Uranus continues its journey in Taurus through the end of the 2nd degree and Neptune makes progress through the 17th degree of Pisces, and no longer traveling close to Mercury, so the fog clears after the 10th.

Aug 23-Sept 22
The career sector of your chart heats up with Mars transiting there over the next 7 weeks.

Life is generally good for you this month so be grateful for that. The 15th and 16th are days to take some quality time off.
Sept 23-Oct 23
Health and wealth are major concerns for you this month as Venus in her sign of exaltation transits your 6th house of health, work environment and routine. You can strive to have more balance and will better recognize your needs after the 10th when Mercury direct gets away from Neptune’s fuzzy influence. State your needs and adhere to your own boundaries. The 17th and 18th offer a respite from the mundane aspects of life.
Oct 24-Nov 22
This month offers some fun and creative things to do with 3 planets in your solar 5th house. Take some time off and enjoy life and what spring temperatures have to offer. Be careful when driving or traveling as Mars in Gemini can bring rash actions and cause some harm. Forewarned is forearmed, they say. The full Moon on the 18th and the 20th give you positive insights.
Nov 23-Dec 21
Your ruling planet, Jupiter, goes retrograde on the 10th, giving you a chance to catch up with yourself and make some positive changes. It’s a great time to start a diet and exercise program, for example, as Mars is in the sign opposite Jupiter and both are active oriented when joined by aspect. You know you will feel better when you do this, so just do it. The 21st, 22, and Am hours of the 23rd are your stellar days.
Dec 22-Jan 20
With Saturn and Pluto going retrograde later in the month in your sign you will find yourself slowing down and taking stock of how the events and your actions over the last 4 months have rewarded you. You are looking for progress and rewards so be honest about your reality. You can always make adjustments during any planet’s retrograde motion period, particularly when it is your ruling planet, Saturn, that is changing course. The 24th and 25th are your power days.
Jan 21-Feb 20
You may want to spend some money this month on things that seem indulgent but are things you would really like to have and enjoy. Delay your actions until after the 10th for clarity. This is a time to also enjoy planning changes to your residence. Notice I said planning as it’s not the time to take action, just the time to start tinkering with the plans. Your good days are the 26th, 27th and AM hours of the 28th.
Feb 21-Mar 20
With Venus now in your sign, you can indulge your whims a bit and have some indulgent or decadent fun. It’s a bit better after the 10th but really anytime is actually fine before the 21st. Your mental fog lifts after the 10th as well. Most Pisces people don’t mind being confused, I’ve noticed, as they are good at going with the flow and making changes when they see fit. The 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 29th and 30th are your best days.
