Monthly Horoscope for April

 

The New Moon (first total solar eclipse of 2023) on April 8th occurs in Aries and the Full Moon on April 23rd falls in Scorpio. Mercury travels into Aries and will remain until May 14th (due to his retrograde motion. On April 6th Venus enter into Aries and will remain until April 29th. Mars sails into Pisces until April 30th.  Jupiter is in Taurus until May 25. Saturn is in Pisces until February 2026. Uranus is direct in Taurus. Neptune is direct in Pisces and Pluto is direct in Aquarius.

When a planet is retrograde in our charts, it means that the properties of that planet, in a sense, are reversed. The times that Mercury goes retrograde defines a time for us to slow down and go within. Think about what is happening in our lives and where we are going. Most of us see this time as an annoyance, but once again, Astrology is a tool and we need to use the time for our benefit.

Generally speaking, during a Mercury retrograde, we can expect delays, traffic situations, problems in communications (especially with telephones and cell phones), computer problems, delays in mail, and we never want to sign any contracts or legal documents, especially long-term ones. We don't throw logic completely out the window, if something needs to be taken care of and is of an urgent nature, we don't put it off, we just do what we need to do and see what unfolds.

All Aries and Libra are affected by this solar eclipse. Personal life is the most likely area to suffer, especially your closest relationships. The effect of a Solar Eclipse can last up to six months even years, so allow yourself to be acutely aware of all that you set in motion the day before, the day of and the day after the Eclipse!

We want to clarify our daily and monthly horoscopes are general for all zodiac signs and do not take into account of your personal natal chart.  For a personal reading click here

 

 

Cancer:  From April 6th through April 30, Venus is in Aries and in your tenth solar house of long-term goals, spotlighting commitments. This creates favorable circumstances in your business and professional life, attracting persons and circumstances that facilitate your work.                  

 

People in authority are favorably inclined toward you, and most relationships in your professional life will run smoothly. It is apparent to everyone that you are primarily interested in working harmoniously with others, and they respond by being agreeable. All such activities should go smoothly during this month.

 

On top of that, Mercury sails into Aries and your tenth solar house of career until May 14.This is perfect timing to make plans concerning your professional life. Think about what you have been doing along these lines and whether or not it is working out as you want it to.

This is also a favorable time to talk to superiors, bosses or employers about your work and how you may advance in your job. You may also become involved with the part of your business that involves communicating with the outside world, either through advertising or through contract negotiations.

 

Keep in mind that Mercury retrogrades from April 2nd through April 25. During these weeks, you are likely to face unanswered questions, delays and other complications, at this time. Why add to the mix by launching grand plans?

Cancer, you are unlikely to get much in the way of certainty, commitment, security or guarantees so pursue priorities when Mercury turns out of his loop. If you do launch anything have Plan B, and grand plans, perhaps, require a Plan A, B and C ready if you need it.

The New Moon of April 8th (total solar eclipse and the first one in 2024), takes places in Aries also into your tenth solar house of career and gives you the energy you need in order to begin a new career phase – or to choose a new direction in life.

Things don’t move along as quickly as you might want them to, do not push it; take the time to plan things out, you are dealing with the eclipses in your tenth house until the end of October 2024.  

 

With Mars passing into Pisces and in your 9th solar house, this is a time when you do more creative intellectual work than usual. You will assert and defend the beliefs and ideas that you consider true and important wherever necessary.

Obviously, this is valuable if you have to influence other people and make an impression on them, but it can also be a danger if you try to beat people over the head with your opinions and ideas. What you can do now is put all of your energy into expanding your mind. Look for experiences that will open up new dimensions of reality.

The Full Moon on April 23rd occurs in Scorpio and in your 5th solar house, so a Full Moon here is shining a light on what you truly desire.

It's a time of emotional intensities, so anything you have been keeping buried pops on up this month.

It can be a time where people end up having a breakup or waking up with a stranger. It brings up feelings of what matters to help you remove the other stuff.

If you have been dating for a while, this Full Moon can solidify the connection in an intense way.

It can be a time where your child/bf-gf (non-serious) feelings come out, if your child's been keeping something from you then this is a time where you become aware of it.
