Get the Big Picture of What to Expect this Month as the Planets Affect Your Sun Sign
Saturday, April 29, 2017
Taurus (4/21 - 5/21)
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. You’ll have the opportunity to work through issues from the past with an old friend or lover. This month’s Mercury retrograde will begin in your Sun sign, which could result in fuzzy thinking. Avoid making big decisions now. When Mercury moves back into Aries and your 12th house of hidden information on April 20th, you’ll have the chance to access knowledge that may have been buried in your subconscious.
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 12th house of spirituality and the subconscious could have helped you to release old relationship baggage and unhealthy patterns. This month, Venus has moved back into Pisces and your 11th house of friendship and community. This will be an ideal time to resolve unfinished business with a friend and reconnect with people from your past.
Use the time that Venus is in Pisces (April 2 - April 27) to access feelings of forgiveness for both yourself and others. It will be a wonderful time to remember that we’re only human and that most people are doing the best that they can. Releasing resentment can help to clear your emotional plate to give and receive more love!
Saturn, planet of rules, structure, and life lessons, will station retrograde on April 6th, initiating a cycle that will last until August 25th. This will be helpful for Taureans who tend to avoid looking at uncomfortable truths. All year, Saturn in Sagittarius has been forming a favorable trine to Uranus in Aries, helping you to face your fears and express your authentic self.
The next few months, while Saturn is retrograde, it will be excellent timing to work with a counselor or mentor to identify fears that may be holding you back. This year, you can access the courage to try something new and advance towards a big life goal. With Saturn transiting your 8th house of intimacy and shared finance, it’s likely that you are learning to trust others. You are instinctually self-reliant, but it will be important to recognize that you can’t always go it alone. Look to trusted people in your life to help you with the challenges necessary to grow. You’re scheduled to benefit from a business partnership or other powerful alliance.
The Libra Full Moon on April 11th will help you to gain clarity about a work or health-related matter. It’s likely that something in either of these areas of life has felt a bit out of balance lately. Look for ways to manage your time in a way that allows you to engage in self-care activities such as exercise or meditation. Healing modalities such as massage, acupuncture, or energy work can be particularly effective.
On April 19th, the Sun will ingress into your Sun sign, which will help you to demonstrate your positive attributes such as reliability, determination, and the ability to create a comforting atmosphere. The last few weeks of the month will be ideal for self-care and taking time to enjoy life’s pleasures. Pluto will station retrograde on April 20th, adding to the astrological encouragement to pull back and weigh your options. From April 20th to September 28th, it will be a great time to explore educational opportunities or the possibility of a travel-related adventure.
The April 26th New Moon will be in your Sun sign! This New Moon will initiate your personal astrological new year and be a powerful time to set goals not only for the next Moon cycle, but for the coming year!
