Horoscopes April 2018
Aries (March 21st - April 19th)
April is a mixed bag for the Rams of the Zodiac. On the one hand it is all systems go which you thoroughly enjoy. You can forge ahead with your own interests and any self-improvement projects. On the other hand wounded healer Chiron enters your Sign on April 17 (AEST) calling on you to reflect on and heal any physical ailments or emotional wounds from the past. You need compassion for yourself and for others. If you sense obstacles are in your path then you are well advised to consider the consequences of your actions before pressing ahead. Your personal value system stands you in good stead.
Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)
Your ruling planet Venus has moved into your Zodiac Sign heralding a boost in personal finances and matters of the heart. This is a positive month for any activity that increases your income and furthers your romantic interests. The lucky planet Jupiter wends its way through your relationship sector confirming that contracts and marital relations can be positive as long as you show due restraint. This is a time to implement your Taurean wisdom and avoid any tendency to be greedy or acquisitive. Listen to your personal guidance system – your intuition – and this can be a very fortunate month.
Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)
Mercury, the planet of communications, is Retrograde for the first half of April. Mercury is also your planetary ruler and so you are cautioned to think before you speak and act. Large purchases, big decisions and important communications require reflection rather than rash action. This is particularly true for anything connected to groups, clubs or your circle of friends. If something irritates you then count to ten and perhaps you realise how insignificant this can be in the big picture. Once Mercury starts to turn around on April 15 you also start to understand why there has been a need for restraint.
Cancer (June 21st - July 22nd)
April sees you keen to move ahead with an important life plan or career goal. However you may also feel that something or someone is blocking your path. This is particularly so after April 18. This could be a good time to seek some professional advice from a trusted mentor or counsellor. However you are a Water Sign and also have a strong intuitive sense. Trust your own personal guidance system. It is time to look at the big picture. What is your true north? In other words what gives you meaning and purpose? Are you able to persuade your nearest and dearest to support what is important?
Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
April is the ideal time for Leos to explore new frontiers. The Sun, Mercury and Uranus are all in the 9th House of your Solar Chart indicating big ideas. You are unlikely to sweat the details now. The planet of communication Mercury is Retrograde until April 15 (AEST) indicating that the first half of the month may be the planning stage and the second half the action phase. It is time for you to broaden your horizons perhaps through academic study or teaching, travel or involvement in cultural or sporting activities. Anything that invites more adventure is likely to appeal.
Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
Your ruling planet Mercury is Retrograde until April 15 (AEST) indicating that the start of the month is a time for reflection rather than action. In particular you are contemplating how you invest your time, energy and money. As the middle of the month passes you are likely to make some profound changes based on your deliberations. You implement a plan for amendments to your lifestyle. It is likely that your frugality comes to the fore with a plan to invest your money more wisely, or new ways of economising such as designing a herb garden or cooking more at home.
Libra (September 23rd - October 22nd)
Two lucky planets – Jupiter and Venus – are in the financial sectors of your Solar Chart this month. Therefore your personal finances are likely to flourish and you may also receive a gift or news of an inheritance. This is a feel-good month. Other planets are also aligned in the relationship zone calling on you to consider your marital status. If you are single then now is your chance to ponder if this is how you like to live. If you are in a committed relationship then your partner may demand some extra attention. Either way you can attract positive love vibes if you so wish.
Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)
Duty calls this month. Something is playing on your mind and won’t go away. It may be connected to your relationship with a sibling, or with a neighbour. Whatever it is the planets are aligned in a way that suggests that you have a serious decision to make. You need to pay attention to the details. If something is niggling then bring it into focus and decide on a structured plan of action. Step by step is your motto during April. Routine may bring comfort. You have responsibilities and the sooner that they are attended to the better you are likely to feel.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
Fun on a budget is the name of the game during April for Archers. You can loosen the reins on your playful side but only so far. This maybe frustrating so be creative. Perhaps you have a creative project that needs your concentration. The trick is to recognise that being playful can also be productive and to find inexpensive ways to amuse yourself. A picnic in a park, a game on a beach or a long walk through a forest. All of these can boost your sense of well-being. Three planets lined up in the Sign of Capricorn may also test your patience with one or two stubborn goats.
Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
Three planets line up in your Zodiac Sign this month calling on you to consider security matters. Capricorns are usually experts on security, perhaps erring on the side of too much control. Nevertheless you are asked to double check any insecure area of your life. It is time to halt and act with integrity. You may believe that you always act with integrity, after all that is a key feature of the Capricorn Sign. However, this is a good month to check what integrity means to you. You also need to contemplate the word “power”. What does this mean to you? Are you powerful in the most positive sense of the word?
Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
Your connections with neighbours and siblings are highlighted now. This also includes your local neighbourhood. You are likely to voice your opinions, perhaps on behalf of other people. Your views may stir up unexpected responses. Politics comes in all shapes and sizes ranging from local to global. Local politics is the flavour of your month. This is the ideal month to research a particular subject before you jump in too deeply. You need to make sure that you are speaking from your heart and not stubbornly sticking to a dogma. Your siblings, neighbours and colleagues response most positively when you speak your truth with compassion.
Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
Friendships seem to be a recent theme for Pisceans and this month is no different. Politics in groups is highlighted. This could be a local club or school, or in your social circle. Whatever your personal scenario the time has come for you to seriously consider your connection with your surrounding community. Do your friends support you? If so then you are likely to form long-lasting bonds. If not, then the time has come to tackle issues that have been swept under the carpet. The trick is to ensure that your self-esteem is strong, and to have connections that uphold your hopes, dreams and wishes.
