Saturday, April 29, 2017
Capricorn (12/21 - 1/20)
April will be a month for reflection, review, and revision! Although the Sun will be in action-oriented Aries through April 18th, the influence of several retrograde planets will not support new commitments or the initiation of new ideas. Mercury will be retrograde and transiting your 4th house of home and family from April 20th through the end of the month, making it a good month to reconnect with relatives.
This month’s Mercury retrograde will begin in Taurus and your 5th house of romance and creativity. Use the first part of April to finish a creative project or rekindle the romance in a current or former partnership. When Mercury moves back into Aries and your 4th house of home and family on April 20th, you may feel motivated to make improvements to your living situation. It won’t be great timing for real estate transactions or signing a new lease. However, you will be supported in efforts to redecorate, remodel, or renovate.
Venus retrograde (March 4 - April 15) continues during the first half of April, yet the shadow phase will last until May 18th. Last month, Venus retrograde in your 4th house of home and family may have presented you with the opportunity to resolve a conflict with a family member. This month, Venus has moved back into Pisces and your 3rd house of information, communication, and learning. You could receive information from your Higher Power or intuition. Pay attention to your dreams and any gut feelings you get as you will have a powerful ability to sense and perceive the emotions of those around you.
Use the time that Venus is in Pisces (April 2 - April 27) to listen to your inner wisdom. You will likely feel compelled to spend some extra time alone with your thoughts. Consider journaling, meditation, prayer, and other spiritual practices to help you cultivate a sense of peace. It’s possible that you’ll be experiencing emotions that have been buried in your subconscious. It will be a wonderful time to acknowledge and release feelings from your past. Don’t resist the urge to have a good cry—it could be just what you need!
Saturn, planet of rules, structure, and life lessons, will station retrograde on April 6th, initiating a cycle that will last until August 25th. With Saturn as your ruling planet, you’re likely to feel its effects more so than your peers. When Saturn turns retrograde, you may find yourself doing some soul searching. Take care not to be too hard on yourself as you may be apt to dwell on perceived “failures” around this time.
While Saturn is retrograde the next few months, you will likely be taking a personal inventory of your past efforts and progress made towards personal goals. This will be a powerful time to release limiting beliefs and fears that may be holding you back. Be sure to acknowledge your past accomplishments and re-write a set of “rules” for yourself that encourage your success. Set realistic expectations for yourself and celebrate each step forward, no matter how small.
The Full Moon on April 11th will be in Libra and your 10th house of career and public image. Business partnerships will be especially favorable around this time. Your ability to be a team player could gain you recognition from an authority figure, and you may receive a financial reward for a job well done.
On April 19th, the Sun will ingress into Taurus and your 5th house of romance and creativity. During the second half of April, you’ll be reminded to slow down and enjoy time with loved ones. Spending time with children or a special partner can help “rebalance” any feelings of stress. Plan some time for rest, relaxation, and activities that bring you joy!
The April 26th New Moon will be in Taurus and your 5th house of romance, creativity, and children. Use the power of this New Moon to set intentions related to long-term romantic partnerships, artistic pursuits, enjoying your sensuality, and earning money from your creativity.
