Get the Big Picture of What to Expect this Month as the Planets Affect Your Sun Sign
Saturday, April 29, 2017
Leo (7/23 - 8/23)
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 for healthy psychological transformation and the ability to release negativity related to an intimate relationship from the past.
This month’s Mercury retrograde will begin in Taurus and your 10th house of career and public image. It will be great timing to update your resume and reach out to former business colleagues. When Mercury moves back into Aries and your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education on April 20th, it will be ideal timing to consider brushing up on skills or research a new adventure.
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 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education helped you to remember valuable life lessons from the past that are applicable now. This month, Venus has moved back into Pisces and your 8th house of intimacy and shared finance. You will have the opportunity to reconnect with someone with whom you once shared a close connection. You may be revisiting the past to gain closure or revitalize a relationship. Forgiveness and establishing healthy boundaries will be strong themes.
Use the time that Venus is in Pisces (April 2 - April 27) to be gentle to yourself and others. You could be facing some harsh realities related to an intimate partnership or trust issues. This won’t be the time to “power through.” Instead, slow down and allow yourself and others the space to process their emotions. You’re scheduled to release painful emotions from the past and open your heart 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 Leos seeking stability in a romantic partnership or the ability to commit to a creative project. All year, Saturn in Sagittarius has been forming a favorable trine to Uranus in Aries, helping you to develop more responsibility for your own happiness.
The next few months, while Saturn is retrograde, you can use the available energy to cultivate the traits of reliability and command respect from loved ones. It’s possible that you haven’t been consistent in your efforts, which has caused others to doubt your ability to follow through. Show loved ones they are a priority and commit to your creativity.
The Libra Full Moon on April 11th will help you with diplomatic communications. The timing will be right to see situations in a new light and consider all points of view. Avoid succumbing to any drama that may surround you and instead, focus on finding fair solutions.
On April 19th, the Sun will ingress into Taurus and your 10th house of career and public image. The last few weeks of the month will be great timing to gain recognition for your hard work. Pluto will station retrograde on April 20th, adding to the astrological encouragement to pull back and assess your situation. While Pluto is retrograde (April 20th to September 28th), look for ways to take charge of your time and restructure your schedule to optimize productivity.
The April 26th New Moon will be in Taurus and your 10th house of career and public image. Use the power of this New Moon to set long term goals related to your career, working with the public, public relations, long-term relationships, and profitable ventures.
