Go to Top Career versus Family Life
April starts with the Sun in pioneering Aries, your 10th house of career and ambitions. It's an important time of the year to move forward with your career path, improve your public image, and achieve recognition. With lovely Venus retrograde and about to re-enter your 9th house on the 3rd, plans and success may not be realized immediately as people, events and changes preclude you from making headway. Mercury will also turn retrograde on the 9th, moving into your 10th house on the 20th. In the meanwhile make adjustments where necessary, particularly if you have commenced a new career role, or have to undergo delays to commencement dates. Discuss your options with your employer; keep your goals in mind and your reputation in good stead. You may have to deal with the public. Be honest in your approach and catch up with any backlog of work.

From the 7th to the 9th, with the Full Moon approaching, you will need to balance your career, home life, family and relationships. Some may have agreements, business discussions, and litigation to deal with, which may affect your status, a home move, or real estate and property matters. From the 13th to the 15th, you may receive unexpected public attention, change your career path, or feel it's time to overthrow restrictions and take a different course. From the 15th to the 18th, your popularity is bound to increase. Perhaps there's a love interest that deserves a second chance. You could be in favour with those in your profession, or receive a career offer and reap success.

The Full Moon on the 11th comes in stylish Libra, your 4th house of home and family. For April, it is often referred to as the Full Pink Moon from the herb moss pink, or wild ground phlox, which is one of the earliest widespread flowers to appear in spring in the Northern Hemisphere. Other given names include Sprouting Grass Moon, Egg Moon and among the coastal tribes as the Fish Moon because this was the time that the shad swam upstream to spawn.

This Full Moon will highlight your emotional ties through family relationships and career responsibilities. Your security and comfort zone come under question. Think carefully about your ideas, plans and restructuring to the family home. Are you able to balance everything, or does it feel like a precarious juggling act in which you're in danger of dropping the ball? Start to make any adjustments that you think are necessary. Expansive Jupiter remains in your 4th house for the ensuing several months. This is a time of opportunities and the good fortune to improve your lifestyle, expand your home, or relocate to a larger or more impressive property. Some may decide to relocate at a distance, in the country, or alternatively start major renovations. A parent may be beneficial by living with you or assisting you in setting up a comfortable home. Look at the bigger picture, but try not to overestimate your ability to remain logical in your approach to future plans. You could be caught up in wanting and giving too much of yourself and your possessions.

On the 19th, the Sun moves out of Aries and moves into Taurus, your 11th house of friends and groups. The next four weeks with the Sun and New Moon in your 11th house find you embarking and extending your network of friendships, socialising, and meeting new people through groups, associations and organisations. Consider how your friends influence your values and ideals, inspirations and goals. The Crab has a reputation for being something of a Money Bags, and it's true that you are generally able to earn a comfortable living. You may find yourself talking with your friends about new ways to increase your income and realise your potential dreams. Romantic relationships could emerge, with going to parties and enjoying fun times.

The 26th sees a New Moon in Taurus, your 11th house. Over the next two weeks, you'll take a new course in finding emotional fulfilment, support and social contact from friends, and groups you belong to. However, don't neglect old friends or other people with whom you have had misunderstandings recently by clearing any tensions, thanks to Mercury retrograde. You may have to adapt a different viewpoint and hold off making any firm decisions if you are undecided about your ideas and goals. New romantic attractions will also be on offer, going to entertainment events and partying. This is not the time to get bogged down with insecurities, show jealousy or be overly possessive. You will gradually adjust to your change in circumstances, as the pace will be slower than usual.
Go to Top Mercury Retrograde
Mercury remains in Taurus, your 11th house of friends, hopes and wishes, turning retrograde on the 9th. Smooth over differences of opinion with friends, love relationships, groups and social clubs that you belong to during this phase. Perhaps you have departed the scene on bad terms, or said the wrong things. Apart from that, re-examine your relationship with friends, other people's children, your ideals, goals and future dreams.

The Cosmic Trickster then retrogrades back into Aries, your 10th house of career and ambitions, on April 20th. The pace with your career will need modifying, particularly after Venus' retrograde phase. You may regret saying things out of anger or on the spur of the moment between March 23rd and the 28th, with further deliberations on the subject from April 27th to the 30th. Discuss any career moves, present ideas, or even resubmit a resume. Mercury turns direct on May 3rd in Aries, then moves forward to re-enter Taurus, your 11th house on May 16th, sigh!
Go to Top Venus Retrograde
Venus remains retrograde in Aries your 10th house of career and ambitions before commencing the second part of the Venus retrograde phase in Pisces, your 9th house, from April 3rd to April 27th. This is usually a fortunate time to travel, but in this case it will prove to be less entertaining and less socially inviting. There's a chance of getting ill from exotic meals if you are overseas on a holiday. You may take up a postponed trip, or someone you recently met from abroad may reappear and rekindle an old flame. Other possibilities include an opportunity that arises to re-enrol in advanced study, take up a language, or other course connected with overseas colleges. Publications, articles and written works are unlikely to get a favourable review, or attain popularity, at least for the time being. Postponed legal proceedings may get a second look in with further negotiations being successful, but not in the way you had hoped. April 6th to the 25th sees Venus and Saturn square off with each other, so make sure your health is in reasonably good order. Avoid overindulgence.
Go to Top Communication Problems
Warrior Mars remains in Taurus, your 11th house. With Mercury retrograde in your 11th, there'll be more chatting, going over your thoughts, expressing your goals and working towards your future achievements on your career path. It's an important time to co-operate, be patient and show support, but avoid being over-critical and hasty with remarks which could prove detrimental to friendships. Your partner's children may need more attention. Communication problems in love relationships and streaks of jealousy are in the frame. Learn the art of brotherhood and show your individuality in a good light. Co-operate and be part of a team.

On the 21st, the Warrior moves into Gemini, your 12th house of secrets, sorrows and subconscious motivations. Your physical energy and output may be lower than usual. You may find that you are spending time on your own, or having feelings of frustration and doubts. Past actions, good or bad, may catch up with you in coming weeks. The most positive way to make use of this energy is to keep your own counsel and work on your own issues. Develop your inner strengths, and work on releasing your early conditioning. Home life moves more into focus and you'll come up with some solutions at last. Working with the underprivileged is one way of harnessing this energy, as charitable work in general is stimulated.
Go to Top The Dragon's Head and Tail
The Moon's Nodes, also known as the Dragon's Head and Dragon's Tail, normally travel in retrograde fashion and are about to change signs. This is a big deal. The North Node/South Node axis is a karmic significator and is particularly potent just before switching signs. The effects of this change will be felt most strongly as the Mean Node transits the first degree of Virgo, your 3rd house of communication, neighbours, early education and local issues. It generates potential crises connected with these areas and thanks to the effects of the South Node in the first degree of Pisces, will stimulate your dealings with people from overseas, cultural or religious types and issues connected with politics, publishing and cultural pursuits in general. The Mean Node will move from discriminating Virgo into proud Leo on April the 29th, with the True Node following suit on May 9th.

With the North Node retrograding into your 2nd house, and the South Node in your 8th house for the next 18 months or so, karmic lessons can be learnt from testing the limits of values, both personal and those of others. Assumptions of accumulated wealth and possessions can bring a false sense of security. How you present your worldly goods to others opens up a can of worms. Make the effort to gain your worth through your own efforts and do not rely on other people for monetary values and possessions. You may have to rethink your sexual strength and past misuse of it to acquire what you want from others. There may be a fear of death and the mysteries of life. Avoid blaming others for your misfortune while trying to hold onto what you believe is yours and not theirs.
