Cancer (6/21 - 7/23)
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 shift your consciousness in a way that will promote living in alignment with your ideals. This month’s Mercury retrograde will begin in Taurus and your 11th house of friendship and community. It will be great timing to connect with old friends and finish group projects. When Mercury moves back into Aries and your 10th house of career and public image on April 20th, it will be ideal timing to network with people from your past who may be able to help advance your current goals. It will be good timing to call in a favor from someone in a powerful position who you’ve previously helped out in their time of need.
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 10th house of career and public image may have had you reconsidering a current career path or the way you interact in public. This month, Venus has moved back into Pisces and your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education. You may be feeling nostalgic for a time in your life when you experienced more freedom than you have currently. You’re being reminded to make your enjoyment of life more of a priority. Think of ways you can bring more spontaneity and adventure into your life and how you can release yourself from self-imposed restrictions.
Use the time that Venus is in Pisces (April 2 - April 27) to daydream. It won’t be time to take action, so use this opportunity to envision what you want without worrying about the practical details. It will be a productive time for journaling. Next month, when the energies will support new endeavors, you can sort through the ideas that come to mind now.
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 Cancers who would like more stability and structure in their daily lives. All year, Saturn in Sagittarius has been forming a favorable trine to Uranus in Aries, helping you to commit to your personal goals and cultivate the self-discipline necessary to fulfill your potential.
The next few months, while Saturn is retrograde, it will be excellent timing to evaluate your current schedule. Examine your use of time and determine where you are missing opportunities to participate in activities that fill you with excitement. You may be feeling bogged down with responsibilities that are actually not yours to bear. Are you avoiding doing what you love and using a false sense of obligation as an excuse?
The Libra Full Moon on April 11th will help you to gain clarity about your home life and/or a situation with a family member. You could awaken to ideas that can help you to create more harmony at home and with loved ones. Fair negotiations will be supported.
On April 19th, the Sun will ingress into Taurus and your 11th house of friendship and community. The last few weeks of the month will be great for activities with friends such as nature outings, sharing a delicious meal, or enjoying the arts. Pluto will station retrograde on April 20th, adding to the astrological encouragement to pull back and assess your situation. April 20th to September 28th will be ideal timing to analyze a current or past partnership. You could be figuring out how to maintain a healthy balance of power or release emotional baggage from the past.
The April 26th New Moon will be in Taurus and your 11th house of friendship and community. Use the power of this New Moon to set intentions related to long-term friendships, developing a strong sense of community, and committing to activities and groups that promote your future security.
