Go to Top Resolve Your Fears
April starts with the Sun in energetic Aries, your 12th house of secrets, sorrows and hidden motivations. Over the next few weeks you will go through a phase of self-evaluation, probing at those hidden fears and anxieties. It's a time of self-analysis, introspection and rebuilding your inner strengths while trying to resolve those doubts and long-term issues that hold you back thanks to past conditioning. Are you the creator of your own shortcomings? Fearing reprisal or lack of confidence and blaming other people for your dilemmas? Why not take a positive approach and use this time to improve your wellbeing through meditation, learning how to relax, and taking interest in esoteric, psychological and metaphysical topics. You may be involved with hospitals, institutions, secret societies, or have concerns over a partner's health or work. On the bright side, it's your personal New Moon on the 26th. Venus your planetary ruler remains retrograde, and Mercury is about to follow suit on the 9th. You'll need to take your time in forming decisions about your future plans and relationships. Someone from the past could re-enter your life, making it difficult to see through your own situation and concerns.

From the 7th to the 9th, with the Full Moon approaching, pay attention to your work commitments, authorities and bosses. If you have made plans to travel, these are likely to be revised due to circumstances beyond your control, such as problems with the law, those in power, or needing time to redirect your concentration to studies. From the 13th to the 15th you'll feel the urge to do something out of the norm, so be open to new ideas. You could be involved in reform. From the 15th to the 18th, may well be the time you reconnect with someone from a past relationship, or visit old haunts and socialize with friends. If love has been lacking, this may be the perfect time to heal those wounds and swallow your pride in some way.

The Full Moon on the 11th comes in stylish Libra, your 6th house of work and health. 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 trigger changes and emotional events affecting your area of work, habits, routine, and potential health problems. Sensitive feelings surface at this time, with dramas appearing bigger than they really are. Try not to push your physical limitations by overloading yourself with too many tasks and overestimating your own importance. There may be hidden concerns about your relationship with work colleagues and the role you play in your job or being of service to others. A partner's health may be a concern. Prepare for delays, with events behind the scenes slowing you down, making it hard to knuckle down to your major work agenda. It may be time for that medical check-up, going to the dentist or seeking an alternative medicine adviser.

On the 19th, the Sun moves out of Aries and into Taurus, your 1st house of personality. The ensuing four weeks will see many of you celebrating a birthday, the start of your New Solar Year. Concerns that you have had will be put to one side, as you will be physically and emotionally revitalised. You will show more self-confidence, with a brighter outlook in preparing new plans for your personal needs and evaluating relationships for the year ahead.

Your Personal New Moon occurs on the 26th in Taurus, your 1st house of personality. Things may not quite get off the ground with your personal thoughts and plans, thanks to both Mercury and Venus in retrograde phases. You will have a great deal to think about with relationships, friends and your social activities. You may indeed breeze along being self-assured, motivated and charming, but on the other hand you may feel the need to do a tremendous amount of soul-searching about your personal needs and future plans. Nevertheless, a new direction will be underway. Take a moment to look dapper with a new outfit, hairdo, or a change to your appearance in some way. Your usual cheerful self may be a touch reserved, particularly if you want to reveal your feelings for another. If you are totally wrapped in your own private affairs at this stage, remember to show consideration and empathy for others who may not understand your preoccupations.
Go to Top Mercury Retrograde
Mercury is slowing in Taurus at the start, turning retrograde on the 9th. Just when you were ready to talk the talk and express your new ideas and thoughts on intellectual topics and personal plans, all will come to a halt. Don't be snarky or say things that may come back to haunt you. Take the time to listen to other people's opinions. Be careful that recurring problems from March 26th to the 28th don't resurface from April 27th to the 30th for a final debate.

The Cosmic Joker re-enters Aries, your 12th house of secrets, sorrows and hidden motivations, on April 20th. Health and work issues could plague you, your relationships, or your partner. You'll be analysing your own problems, as well as sifting beneath the surface to uncover hidden meanings, but this phase could have you chasing your own tail for answers. You are likely to keep your business to yourself, work in seclusion, or take an interest in forms of psychology and secret societies. Mercury turns direct on May 3rd in Aries, moving forward to re-enter Taurus, your 1st house, on May 16th. What a relief!
Go to Top Venus Retrograde
Venus remains retrograde in Aries your 12th house before commencing the second part of the Venus retrograde phase in Pisces, your 11th house, from April 3rd to April 27th. Romantic relationships are likely to undergo something of a lull, where for one reason or another you won't be as enthusiastic, or your lover will have other commitments to attend to. You may connect with old friends, visit old clubs, groups and organizations. If there have been any misunderstandings, try to find a resolution and rebuild affected friendships. From April 6th to the 25th, Venus squares stern Saturn, even though the Goddess turns direct in Pisces on April 15th. You'll be feeling the weight on your shoulders, Taurus. If you are disappointed over the possible ending to a good friendship or love affair, your situation may appear worse than it really is. Overall, it's not the ideal time to start up a new relationship, or sign agreements and documents, or make a commitment. Set out to seek amicable resolutions.
Go to Top Adjust Your Enthusiasm
Energetic Mars sets off in Taurus, your 1st house. It's certainly the time to unleash your energetic know-how. While other things preoccupy your mind, physically you'll be able to tackle demanding work. Your ego energies will be at work too, making it difficult to reach resolutions if you are hell-bent on achieving your own goals at the expense of others. You may have to adjust your enthusiasm in the meantime to balance relationship demands. From the 5th to the 8th, although you may suffer hostility from those in power, your driving force to achieve will be greater.

On the 21st, the Warrior marches into intellectual Gemini, your 2nd house of personal finances, values and possessions. Safeguard your money, and do not invest in risky speculations. Unexpected expenses could moderate your cash flow, so be frugal if possible and start planning your budget for the year ahead.
Go to Top 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 5th house of romance, children, creativity and speculation between the 10th and the 28th of April. 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 friendships, having a substantial effect on your hopes and dreams and money from career. The Mean Node will move from Virgo into Leo on April the 29th, with the True Node following suit on May 9th. By this date, the crises should be well on their way to resolution.

With the North Node moving through Leo, your 4th house, and the South Node in Aquarius, your 10th for the next 18 months or so, karmic lessons, fated situations and balancing your career with family demands are in the stars. Your expectations for extraordinary ambitions, or the demands of a parent and family may hamper your real progress. What are your realistic ambitions? Are they based on self-importance? Review your heritage, especially emotional ties to past memories, and build on establishing closer family relationships.
