April, 2017 Monthly Astrology Guide

April 2017, Aries 21 March – 20 April…

The beginning of the Zodiac in the birthday month will have you showing off your brilliance.  Your focus will be on you as the Sun is in the 1st house of self “I am”.  This is a time when you will receive support to pursue your personal goals and give you the fire to work hard.  This is not a time for new projects or ones that involve groups.  This is a once a year boost to get yourself motivated.  Your Sun will have a few intense aspects this month with three angles from Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto that can be stressful.  These energies could have you struggling with working on your own agenda for the many demands that others will want to put on you.  Remember we all get a time of year to concentrate on ourselves, its only once a year so make it count.  There will be plenty of time to focus on other people and you will be able to do it better once you are fulfilled. Because most of the Planets will be retrograde this month, April can prove to be one of the most complex month of this year.  Slowing down to look at the big picture before moving forward is a wise decision for you Aries.  Venus moves back into your sign on April 2nd forcing you to look at personal relationships that may have you wanting to retreat or create your own space.  The Libra Full Moon on April 11th will shine a light on partnerships issues.  Let it ride, now is not the time for conflict you may discover many things about yourself by staying quiet. In any case this is the month to relax, redirect yourself and take care of the things that make you happy so you can be refreshed to deal with the rest of the year and the demands that you feel are on your shoulders.  Watch for over spending or careless errors around the 20th as Mercury retrograde will begin in Taurus.  Tempers may flare and you will have trouble seeing eye to eye with other people’s points of view.  As the Sun ingresses into Taurus you will begin to feel more grounded.  Pluto will add some encouragement as it begins its journey backwards on the 20th as well.   Look forward to the New Moon on the 26th in your second house of finance and self-worth and set your goals high.

 

April 2017, Taurus 21 April – 21 May…

Right now, you are probably wondering when can I get some rest.  You have been working hard and playing hard for the past few months now and you could use some R and R. Well this is the month to do it.  This is not the month for commitments and decision making.  That was so last month…The Sun is in Aries which normally is a power house of energy is sitting in your twelfth hose of rest. It is a precursor to your birthday month and a time to reset the clock.  There is a mixed energy with this placement because Aries wants to go but where to go is the issue.  Anxiety may be high which does not settle well with you Taurus.  You are not one to frazzle easily.  Watch for short temper or lack of compassion for others as Venus and Jupiter are in retrograde.  It will take a lot of effort to be kind, but once Venus goes direct on April 16th you may regret your actions so step lightly.  This is also good time to take a look at yourself and release old relationship habits that could be detrimental to your current situation.  Venus in Pisces can help you find the compassion that is hidden inside.  The Full Moon on April 11th will bring you clarity on practical matters that will continue through the 19th. This is the time to replace an old bad habit for a new healthy routine as you can demonstrate your natural sense of discipline and reliability.  As the month comes to a close around the 20th you will begin to question beliefs or understand someone else’s point of view.  This is not the norm for Taurus as you tend to stay fixed on your own ideas.  Pluto helps you to question what you feel and bend in the wind a little. This could have you feeling confused, fatigued or unclear, just remember it’s Mercury retrograde in your twelfth house of spirituality. Give your mind a break from all the thinking and focus on processing the emotions that are flowing; you have been avoiding them for a while.  The New Moon on April 26th will be a time to meditate on clearing the slate so you can start fresh next month when you can reset and refresh.     

 

April 2017, Gemini 22 May – 21 June….

This month will begin with social activity and connection with others who you have much in common with, and will compliment your views.  The Sun lays around in your 11th house of social interaction and really no agenda.  Meaningful conversation on which direction to take is the focus of topic and is much needed in your current state of mind.  Joining a group in the community or volunteer your time. This will help you find your place in the world especially now when you are looking for an escape.  The beginning of the month could find you feeling desperate for something bigger and better especially in your relationships due to Jupiter retrograde in your fifth house of love.  Don’t fret as the April 11th Full Moon will bring back endearing moments of clarity around your love life that is sure to stir up some strong emotions.  However, you will need to be more aware of you brass tactics before telling someone how you feel, it could go in a totally different direction.  Sometimes your wit does not always work out and with five planets in retrograde this is probably a time to use some caution especially if you want things to go your way.  Around the 20th when Mercury goes retrograde hidden agendas will be exposed giving you mixed signals and causing confusion. You will have a hard time trusting others and may feel isolated and alone. Be careful to keep things close to the chest and not overshare information. This is a concern this month that can be used against you later.  This month will lead into some good old fashion soul searching as you approach the 19th and the sun ingresses into Taurus in your twelfth house of spirituality.  You will get an added boost of encouragement from Pluto, which goes retrograde on the 20th, to pull back and take a look at your situation.  April 26th New Moon will be in Taurus and you 12th house and is a good time to set your goals on caring for you physical being and release your inner truth.

 

April 2017, Cancer 22 June – 23 July…

We are all going through something at some point of time or another, but this month is especially busy for you Cancer. The sun rushes through you 10th house of public and professional matters.  Challenges cannot be avoided because most of the planets in retrograde this month and you don’t have time for it.  You are going to have to deal with a lot of unfinished business that you have been trying to avoid for a while now, so brace yourself.  While it may not be fun it will clear the air so you can concentrate on bigger and better things.  Venus will move back into Pisces on April 2nd causing issues in your outspoken 9th house of adventure. Choose your words and actions wisely at this time to avoid unpleasant encounters.  Feelings of adventure could be on your mind still from last month, however this is not the time for spontaneous travel, it is a time for personal growth and contemplation. With Jupiter in your fourth house and retrograde it would be wise to take care of yourself and family.  The Full Moon on April 11th will be an emotional time and will open up long buried family issues.  The tendency to become irrational and childlike is strong making it difficult to deal with emotions that you have not been able to deal with internally.  April 19th as the Sun ingresses into Taurus your mood will lighten and rational thinking will return.  This will be a time to release some emotional baggage and maintaining a healthy balance. The New Moon will be in Taurus in your 11th house of friendship and community will be a time to meditate on long-term relationships and family.

The energy is good to set a good foundation for success.
