April Horoscopes

21st March – 20th April

Busiest of months for Aries for a long long time, so much going on, so many planets active in your sign… Mercury retrograde till the 22nd means don’t get hung up on delays or dissolving deadlines; it’s all temporary (just watch what happens around the 30th). Mars in your sign from the 2nd means your motivation is at an all-time high; Venus from the 21st makes you a love magnet. And this is all despite feeling like you are driving with the brakes on in relationships, thanks to Jupiter/Saturn clash. Keep the faith, within current limitations and watch the limitations dissolve.

21st April – 21st May

There’s a lot of emphasis on going with the flow of situations right now, but this doesn’t mean sitting back and watching the action happen around you; rather it feels like you can’t help but answer the strong call to jump into action and get moving. Meanwhile planet Neptune is starting a journey through your house of friends, groups and gatherings, so till the summer you might find your taste and style changing within group dynamics; where before, cynical or shouty people were like water off a ducks back, from now it’s all about a softer more comfy vibe.

22nd May – 21st June

Lots of action in situations involving friends, groups, and gatherings this month. Also your hopes and dreams for the future and how your chosen crowd relates/supports them. Your ruler mercury is retrograde (appearing to move backwards) here for much of the month, so while misunderstandings or backtrackings might be an issue, so are reconnections and reunions. The vibe in general is new opportunities, so even if it’s the past revisited, there’ll be a new chapter. Neptune moves into your career zone till the summer, which means go with the flow, and use intuition. Luckily, you’re fine with following the prevailing wind.

22nd June – 22nd July

A tricky new moon on the 4th highlights mixed feelings regarding opportunities that are being restricted somewhat, especially concerning career; but there are also open doors to step through this month, particularly around the 6th and the 30th, and step through them you will, as well as pushing open a few yourself, as you are highly motivated to initiate action and get the ball rolling on. 11th and 27th is challenging for relationships… power struggles can be an issue, but romance might benefit from the intrigue and seduction if you can stay positive. Dreamy Neptune offers new perspectives – get beside water and reflect.

23rd July – 23rd August

Your house of travel is packed full of planets raring to go, but this is no ordinary holiday rest and respite that is calling you, its action and adventure you are seeking, some kind of quest that stimulates and grabs you, body mind and soul. Communication hits obstacles and blocks at times this month, but before you blame others entirely, consider the idea that there’s something you feel you can’t say or shouldn’t say, and others are simply mirroring your own self-judgment; deep dynamics indeed (especially around full moon time on the 18th) but rewarding and relieving to release.

24th August – 22nd September

Big news this month is Neptune moving into the relationship angle of your chart till the summer. It’s eventually staying longterm (14years) but this is a temporary visit, a taster of years to come. Neptune is the planet that rules your relationships, so it’s good news as it’s happily in its element hanging out here. There’s more compassion, more intuition, more magic, and romance to be had than ever before, though at the messy end of the stick there’s some sacrificial lamb/martyr dynamics to tidy before the relationship waters run totally clear and pure, but there’s plenty of time to sort that.

23rd September – 23rd October

It’s all happening in the relationship department… 6 planets on the move in this area of your chart indicates big focus and therefore lots of your energy pouring towards this area of life. There are themes of sorting priorities and boundaries in all relationships, also love matches with high stakes, and overall, a new acceptance of your own competitive spirit and desire for success. See how it all fits during the new moon in libra around the 18th. Added to this, till the summer, non-physical Neptune is helping you find solutions, which most likely means out of thin air.

24th October – 22nd November

You’re a busy bee when it comes to problem-solving this month; loads of planets line up in this area of your chart, which also links to your attitude to health and wellbeing, so enjoy an increased motivation and inspiration to seek solutions and move towards whatever feels better for yourself. Your ruler Pluto retrogrades from the 9th, which could coincide with a turning point in this; especially related to feeling a pressure to speak up or speak out. Neptune is starting a whole new journey influencing your creativity; so art and music, especially your own, is going to move you like never before.

23rd November – 21st December

If you are annoyed or disappointed by friends letting you down when you seem to need them most, you can find solace in your own creative spirit as well as your talent to naturally gravitate to where you really need to be most, so trust your impulse for action, especially around the 6th and the 30th. Imagination planet Neptune moves into your comfort zone till the summer, influencing close emotional ties, home and family, and past memories; so it’s a season of nebulous mists as well mellow fruitful vibes, with ghosts from the past alongside dreams of the future.

22nd December – 20th January

Loads of planets are filling your home and comfort zone with dynamic, fast moving energy, so there’s likely to be plenty happening, and plenty of coming and going; including family gatherings, celebrations and important reunions; as well as plans and projects underway for expansion or new design. Don’t let limits grind you down or overwhelm you, just pick your way steadily through the pieces of opportunity as they show up. Dreamy Neptune influences communication till the summer; downside is brain fog at times, but upside is incredibly inspirational and imaginative communication – to give and receive.

21st January – 18th February

What a month for communication and conversation; it’s all happening at once, sometimes literally. It’s all about moving forward through contacts and connections, yet with mercury retrograde directly affecting your communication, it seems that some of this moving forward includes a bit of stepping back too, especially in time, as there’s some reconnecting with past being done. You hit some barriers of belief this month, either with yourself or with others, but don’t waste time justifying or defending in order to open people’s minds as it just closes down your own.

19th February – 20th March

From the 4th, driven by the power of a new moon (new emotional phase) in your house of self-worth, your ruling planet Neptune is starting a journey through your sign. It’s a temporary visit, till the summer, but eventually will be staying put for 14years. It’s a once in a lifetime thing as Neptune moves ever so slowly, so it’s something to look forward to and make the most of the life changes it encourages. For example, there’s a frenetic, buzzing and busy energy around your finances this month, yet Neptune helps you chillax and zen out no matter what.
