Aquarius (1/20 - 2/20)
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 3rd house of communication and learning from April 20th through the end of the month, making it a good month to reconnect with people from your past and return long-overdue correspondence or phone calls.
This month’s Mercury retrograde will begin in Taurus and your 4th house of home and family. Use the first part of April to reunite with a family member or make improvements to your current living situation. When Mercury moves back into Aries and your 3rd house of communication and learning on April 20th, it will be ideal timing to resolve conflicts from your past. Use the available energy to reach out and clear up any misunderstandings. It will also be a beneficial time to brush up on skills or revisit books or articles that have motivated you in the past.
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 3rd house of learning and communication could have put you back in touch with a former friend or lover. This month, Venus has moved back into Pisces and your 2nd house of finance and self-worth. Prepare for more cash flow in May after Venus has gone direct. In the meantime, what possessions and/or expenses can you let go of in order to free up more of your resources?
Use the time that Venus is in Pisces (April 2 - April 27) to do some emotional work around your relationship with money. Do you need to release irrational feelings that may be impeding your prosperity? For example, if deep down you don’t feel you deserve money and give away too much of your time and talent, others could take advantage and pay you less than you’re worth. It could be that you’ve been subconsciously repelling money! Focus on what you have to offer others and how to graciously accept appropriate compensation for your work.
Saturn, planet of rules, structure, and life lessons, will station retrograde on April 6th, initiating a cycle that will last until August 25th. Saturn has been transiting your 11th house of friendship and community for the past couple of years. You may be setting boundaries with friends and seeking groups where you fit in.
While Saturn is retrograde the next few months, you will likely be feeling a bit less social than usual. Allow yourself the freedom to do things alone. Your leadership abilities are being fine tuned right now, but before you can effectively direct others, you’ll need to feel solid in your own self-direction.
The Full Moon on April 11th will be in Libra and your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education. This will be a great time to work with a mentor or spend time with people from different cultures. A harmonious energy will help you to resolve conflicts and negotiate fair agreements.
On April 19th, the Sun will ingress into Taurus and your 4th house of home and family. During the second half of April, you’ll be reminded to slow down and appreciate loved ones. It will be wonderful timing to host a party in your home. Security will also be a strong theme. Financial planning for your family’s future will be supported.
The April 26th New Moon will be in Taurus and your 4th house of home and family. Use the power of this New Moon to set intentions related to financial security, creating a stable home life, long-term commitments, determination, and real estate transactions.
