Go to Top Experiences of the World
April starts with the Sun in adventurous Aries, your 9th house of the higher mind. This is the time to expand your knowledge and experiences of the world. Keep your mind open to opportunities that become available, including educational and legal pursuits, your cultural identity and thoughts on religion, metaphysics, ancient historical events and places. Mercury is set to turn retrograde on the 9th, moving out of your 10th house of career and ambitions into your 9th house on the 20th to complete unfinished business in the way of travel, advanced study, dealing with people from overseas or at a distance and not to forget your in-laws. In the meanwhile, this will bring short term annoyances, particularly if you have applied for another career role, long range plans, want to discuss your options with your employer, or are waiting for that promotion. You may re-examine your thoughts on the justice system, ideals and beliefs, politics, religion, publishing articles, teaching and metaphysics.

From the 7th to the 9th, building up to the Full Moon, challenges may present themselves through the justice system, authority types, your boss, workplace and health issues. Gather information and facts and present your case in a confident manner, which will be to your advantage. From the 13th to the 15th, be ready for unexpected travel, events, news and change of circumstances. From the 15th to the 18th, you'll work harder to get your creative projects underway. Try to mix business and pleasure, and review your relationship with children.

The Moon's North Node and South Node, known as the Dragon's Head and Dragon's Tail, change signs this month. The Mean Node will move from critical Virgo into Leo on April the 29th, with the True Node following suit on May 9th. This will bring a sense of fated happenings, karmic events and people from past lives, together with individuals who have a significant bearing on your future.

The Full Moon on the 11th comes in charming Libra, your 3rd house of communication. 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 have your mind ticking over, wanting to express your emotions, thoughts and plans. With Jupiter and Uranus at play, you are likely to need more freedom of expression, with a restless urge to travel and do interesting things. Why not widen your perception of the world and make contact with people from overseas? Siblings, relatives and dealings with the law are in the frame too. There may be developments on the neighbourhood front, with local issues, the educational needs of a child, transport, short studies, phone and computer issues up for grabs. Your mental abilities will be insightful as you gather information, digging for truth and facts.

On the 19th, the Sun moves out of Aries and into Taurus, your 10th house of career and ambitions. Your attention focuses on your vocation, improving your public status and swaying those at the top, including your employer. If you feel that you have taken one step forward, then two steps back, blame it on Mercury and Venus retrograde! On the 26th, there is a New Moon, which gives you the confidence to take steps in promoting yourself. Go with your gut feel as to your next career move, be it lateral or on a different path altogether. Brush up on your organisational skills, and show your ability to be recognised for the good work that you do through your achievements and successful enterprises. Review your long-range plans, and how your goals have been played out in the last twelve months.

The 26th sees a New Moon in Taurus, your 10th house. It will have a big impact on your career, long-term ambitions and plans during the next few weeks. If you've been meaning to start an important new project, apply for another job or switch careers, this is when you should pull out all the stops and get cracking. Your reputation and professional life will be at the forefront, helping you impress those at the top and climb the social ladder. You never know what you can do until you try, and you could really surprise yourself in the coming weeks.
Go to Top Mercury Retrograde
Mercury remains in Taurus, your 10th house of career and ambitions, turning retrograde on the 9th. It's that time of year when the Cosmic Prankster puts a spanner into your career moves. If you have laid down plans and thoughts about career changes and sent your portfolio off, be ready for the process to slow down into weeks before someone gets back to you. Meetings and discussions may not go as well as anticipated, particularly if they involve an advancement, a pay rise, or speaking publicly. Make your mark well before Mercury goes retrograde, or expect definite decisions and answers after May 21st.

The Cosmic Prankster re-enters Aries, your 9th house of the higher mind on April 20th. Your thirst for knowledge, travel, mental stimulation and areas of advanced studies will experience some sort of interruption. Thanks to Venus retrograde in the 9th house, things will not run as smoothly as expected. Mix-ups could occur with hotel accommodation; flight, luggage and connection problems are also in the frame. You may have to resolve differences that came on during the period from March 23rd to the 28th, and from April 27th to the 30th. Gain some insight into the events and dissipate any ill feelings. Mercury turns direct on May 3rd in Aries, then moves forward to re-enter Taurus, your 10th house, on May 16th, but remains in a shadow phase until May 21st.
Go to Top Venus Retrograde
Venus remains retrograde in Aries, your 9th house of the higher mind, before commencing the second part of the Venus retrograde phase in Pisces, your 8th house from April 3rd to April 27th. This should be a fortunate position for Venus, when finances seem to fall on your lap, but recent loan approvals could meet with hitches. Financial benefits may be slower coming through, notably a payout, or money through other people. Your libido in intimate relationships may not be as stimulating and intense as you had hoped. From April 6th to the 25th, Venus and stern Saturn will apply a square aspect to each other, which will obstruct the expression of your deeper feelings thanks to psychological fears arising in relationships. This is not a good time for financial speculations and business deals. Perhaps you'll be able to patch up disagreements, recovering your feelings and passion in close relationships.
Go to Top Watch Your Reputation
Warrior Mars remains in Taurus, your 10th house. You'll be a go-getter when it comes to your desire to be a leader, chasing your ambitions and being brash at attaining your objectives, even if there is chaos in the short term. Your determination and ego drive will pulsate with eagerness to reach your targets. However, in the process, there's the impulsive urge to do what you want to do, take charge and forget the rest. This could be to your detriment, as crossing swords with your employer and those in authority will not do you any justice. Be patient and less eager to tread on other people's toes. Watch your reputation and be mindful of what you say, particularly with Mercury retrograde. From the 5th to the 8th, you'll take control and have greater oomph for overcoming obstacles with your health, work role and career endeavours.

On the 21st, the Warrior moves into versatile Gemini, your 11th house of friends, hopes and wishes. Your energy will change direction, as you will move into in the window seat networking with new contacts and friends, working in groups and establishing teamwork. There'll be more involvement with clubs, associations and organisations, some of which could be career-related. It's a time for comradeship, learning the art of brotherhood, reviewing your future goals and dreams. Friends at the helm will give you a helping hand.
Go to Top Dragon's Head and Tail
It's an especially important time for Lions, as the Moon's Nodes, also known as the Dragon's Head and Dragon's Tail, are about to move into Leo. 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 2nd house of personal finances and values. It generates potential crises connected with these areas and thanks to the effects of the South Node in the first degree of Pisces, which activates areas of joint resources with your partner, investments, insurance, benefits, legacies and taxes, together with your emotions in close relationships. The Mean Node will move from critical Virgo into proud Leo on April the 29th, with the True Node following suit on May 9th.

With the North Node retrograding into your 1st house of personality, and the South Node in your 7th house of partners for the next 18 months or so, karmic lessons can be learnt from identifying your self-worth. This may present challenges within relationships and partnerships. Find your own singular vibration without the continual dependence and desire to please others. Although it may be difficult, it will help you grow as an individual taking control and leadership. The plan is to balance your needs with those of other people in your life without sacrificing your own identity, thereby gaining happiness.
