April 2016 Horoscopes

21st March – 20th April
Planet Venus (love and finances) enters your sign from the 5th, indicating instant attraction (especially around 12th and 22nd), bold intentions and impulsive moves. The new moon in your sign (7th) is about powerful new beginnings and radical transformations, especially in the realm of career, status, reputation, and long-term ambition. It also applies to you as an individual; whether it’s a new style or new approach there’s a unique path or course of action unfolding with your name clearly all over it. Your ruler Mars supports all this by retrograding (appearing to move backwards) from 17th until August; indicating turning points, revisits and reviews linked to travel, education, beliefs and perspectives.

21st April – 21st May
This is a powerful month for you Taurus. Steady constructive expansion and transformation is indicated, especially midmonth; though events in and around new moon (7th) and full moon (22nd) might make you question this, as things can happen unexpectedly, and unpredictably (not necessarily unwelcome though). Mercury retrogrades (appears to move backwards) in your sign on the 28th, which means turning points in communication, or a change of mind or in approach from you. Venus, your ruling planet, moves into your sign (30th) which suggests strong self-worth and being a magnet for harmony and prosperity.

22nd May – 21st June
The message of the month is don’t get too focused on obstacles as they won’t affect what’s unfolding in the long-term. In general things have been improving for some time, and the planets suggest this progress remains steady, secure, and well grounded (meaning you aren’t imagining the improvement). New moon on the 7th is about new beginnings and radical transformation linked to friendship, groups, and deepening support for your hopes and dreams (also 9th, 12th, 19th, 22nd). Midmonth is secure and stable (14th, 18th) with a key turning point for relationships from 17th. Mercury retrogrades from the 28th, so go with a change of mind, direction, communication or information.

22nd June – 22nd July
This month (especially around new moon time on the 7th) brings the awareness that certain relationships and emotional connections are not the comfort zone they used to be (especially linking to career or ambition). It’s because situations are evolving; so relationships will transform or rebirth, or they clear the way to welcome a new updated version.  Either way change can bring upheaval and a sense of loss, but April has very supportive planet patterns, enhancing feelings of security and wellbeing, and encouraging constructive progress (particularly midmonth and 22nd). The past meeting present is also an important theme, especially around communication, information, status and ambition (notice 17th, 18th and 28th for this)

23rd July – 23rd August
There’s a breakthrough new moon on the 7th in the faith and belief area of your chart. It suggests new ways of seeing the same situation brings different results, so if there’s been a sticking point or stalemate, then things might get moving (also 9th, 12th, 17th or 22nd).  While travel and education are in the spotlight again for April, there’s also an increasing focus on career, status and reputation. It’s a month to feel proud of achievements and celebrate progress (especially 14th, 18th, 30th), and to feel the courage of your convictions regarding a change of mind or change of direction (especially from 17th and 28th).

24th August – 22nd September
You are on firm foundations for April. The planets indicate secure, steady, expansive progress in general. Your ruler Mercury turns retrograde (appears to move backwards) from the 28th, which symbolises an important change of mind or change of direction (perhaps both) that you’re ready for, with situations revolving around reviews, reconnection, repetition or retreat.  Leading up to this there’s a breakthrough new moon on the 7th indicating sudden or unexpected new beginnings and endings especially linked to shared resources and creative projects (also around 19th and 22nd). Matters of the heart deepen and require trust from 19th, and until August you’re returning to the past somehow in home and family matters.

23rd September – 23rd October
The sun and Venus light up your love-life during April, especially around a new moon (7th) of new beginnings in relationships, and new or renewed contracts and agreements too. Home and family priorities are highlighted, and the planets suggest there’s no softly-softly approach to situations; it’s about radical transformation with instant impact (especially 7th and 19th to 22nd). Midmonth there’s a steady, earthy vibe of firm foundations and reliable progress, which is constructive for change and conducive for enjoying some fruits of your labours. Mars retrogrades from the 17th, so there’s also a returning to, or reviewing of, old ground in relationships; particularly in communication and information.

24th October – 22nd November
The annual full moon in your sign on the 22nd symbolises significant events coming to a head or reaching a turning point this month (especially 7th, 14th, 19th and 22nd). Stuck situations or stalemates might begin to move or improve too. The planets are highlighting relationships, contracts, health and fitness, occupation and daily schedules in all this. Some changes this month have been a long time coming, some are unexpected and some have a particular sense of destiny or purpose (especially around the 18th). With a number of planets retrograding (appearing to move backwards) you might be retreating or re-treading old ground on certain issues, and there’s value in doing so.

23rd November – 21st December
A revolutionary new moon of creativity and vision on the 7th indicates the launch of new projects and/or the transformation of existing plans. If you’ve felt creatively blocked, this is the month that might make all the difference (particularly 22nd). Romance, fun and entertainment are also highlighted in the same way, because enjoying your heart’s desire is the key to moving energy and going with your flow (especially around 19th). Midmonth Mars (planet of action and inspiration), retrogrades in your sign (appears to move backwards) until august 22nd. This points to big changes in priorities and approach, and maybe past meets present for some (good) reason.

22nd December – 20th January
The new moon on the 7th suggests important change and transformation in home and family matters, with radical make-overs, expansion, and changes in priorities over the coming weeks or months. Some of this might unfold in unexpected or unpredictable ways, and it all links to rebirth or renewal in yourself too. The new moon (7th) and full moon (22nd) indicate a more challenging experience of all this, with twists and turns and ups and downs in events, and with others, that can take time to process and integrate. But there are plenty of moments this month where the inherent stability and integrity of your life, inside and out, shines through strongly and sweetly (especially 12th, 14th, 18th).

21st January – 18th February
You’re pulling no punches when it comes to communication this month. People who know you are used to your latest approach but those who are not familiar with your style might need time for your message to settle in. New moon on the 7th suggests new beginnings (and endings) all month that revolve around communication and information. It’s about freedom of speech, unusual conversation and deep, transformative questions and answers. Mighty Mars, planet of action and drive is retrograde from the 17th until August, indicating important turning points in communication, as well as changes in direction or priorities, when it comes to friends, groups and gatherings.

19th February – 20th March
It might feel like a make or break month at times, as certain situations push your patience and challenge your faith in the bigger picture, but in general there’s a certainty at the heart of things that everything always works out somehow, no matter how it appears along the way. You don’t mind breaking the mould and breaking with routine this month (especially 7th, 9th, 19th, 22nd). Mars retrogrades (appears to move backwards) from the 17th, till August, suggesting plans or ambitions change direction or end up on the backburner. Remember it’s temporary and there’s much value to be gained from this stage of the journey.
