Get the Big Picture of What to Expect this Month as the Planets Affect Your Sun Sign
Saturday, April 29, 2017
Virgo (8/23 - 9/23)
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. With your ruling planet, Mercury, going retrograde in April, you will benefit by slowing down and doing what you do best - analyzing information and checking the details.
This month’s Mercury retrograde will begin in Taurus and your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education. It will be great timing to finish any projects or studies you’ve had underway as well as review any travel plans. When Mercury moves back into Aries and your 8th house of intimacy and shared finance on April 20th, it will be ideal timing to consider your needs within a partnership or business agreement.
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 8th house of intimacy and shared finance may have brought a former partner back into your life in order to address unfinished business. This month, Venus has moved back into Pisces and your 7th house of partnership and you may feel awash in emotion related to a current or former love connection. Avoid making major relationship decisions as it can be difficult to see your situation clearly at this time.
Use the time that Venus is in Pisces (April 2 - April 27) to to acknowledge and purge feelings from the past so you can get clear about what you want for the future. Do you need to forgive yourself or a partner for past actions? The timing will be ideal to release unhealthy relationship patterns.
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 Virgos seeking stability in their home and family life. All year, Saturn in Sagittarius has been forming a favorable trine to Uranus in Aries, helping you to create healthy boundaries with family members and redefine your sense of “home.”
The next few months, while Saturn is retrograde, you can use the available energy to renegotiate agreements with relatives and/or roommates. It will be good timing to determine what’s needed to create more stability in your living situation. It could be time to free yourself from limitation by becoming more flexible when it comes to your idea of “home.” Do you need a change of location, or some sort of new order in your household that will allow you to experience more time for yourself?
The Libra Full Moon on April 11th will highlight your 2nd house of finance and self-worth! You will have the ability to bring projects to fruition and reap the rewards for past efforts. It will also be great timing to feel valued for your contribution to a shared goal and enjoy appreciation from loved ones.
On April 19th, the Sun will ingress into Taurus and your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education. During the last few weeks of the month, you’ll be encouraged to persist diligently towards your goals. Stay grounded and do your “homework.” 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), you’ll have the chance to recognize your inner power and direct it towards a creative endeavor.
The April 26th New Moon will be in Taurus and your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education. Use the power of this New Moon to set intentions related to enrolling in school or a mentorship program, sticking to your commitments, walking your talk, and taking time to enjoy the pleasures of life.
