Sagittarius Saturday, April 29, 2017
A desire for drama can get in your way today. Temporarily suspend the need to 'be right'. Your best bet is to pull back and see the bigger picture of the influences affecting others and to ask questions to understand their point of view.

Saturday, April 29, 2017
Sagittarius (11/22 - 12/21)
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. Mercury will be retrograde and transiting your 5th house of romance and creativity from April 20th through the end of the month, making it a good month to rekindle a love relationship.
This month’s Mercury retrograde will begin in Taurus and your 6th house of work and health. Use the first part of April to nurture your body and make necessary adjustments to your schedule to allow for more self-care. When Mercury moves back into Aries and your 5th house of romance and creativity on April 20th, you’ll be encouraged to finish a creative project and an old flame could get in touch towards the end of this month or the beginning of May.
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 5th house of romance and creativity could have put the emphasis on resolving the past with a current or former partner. This month, Venus has moved back into Pisces and your 4th house of home and family. You may be presented with the opportunity to let go of emotional baggage from your childhood and/or heal a relationship with a family member.
Use the time that Venus is in Pisces (April 2 - April 27) to beautify your home and create a peaceful living situation. If you live with family members or other people, it may be beneficial to negotiate some alone time for yourself. Soothing music, hot baths, and a visually pleasing environment can help to rejuvenate your spirit. You could have boundary issues with a family member. Use the available energy to lovingly stand your ground.
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 in your Sun sign since late December 2014 (with a dip back into Scorpio mid-June - mid-September 2015). During this time, you’ve been pushed to prove your commitment to personal goals and work for what you want.
While Saturn is retrograde the next few months, you will have the chance to experience results related to your past efforts. For example, if you’ve been working diligently, you’re likely to gain rewards and recognition. If you’ve been slacking off, however, it could be time to wake up and get back on track!
The Full Moon on April 11th will be in Libra and your 11th house of friendship and community. The days on and around the Full Moon will be ideal for parties, dates, and other social events. You could be noticed for your contribution to a group effort, and you could be inspired to work for a humanitarian cause.
On April 19th, the Sun will ingress into Taurus and your 6th house of daily work and health. This will help to stabilize your energy and promote slow, steady progress. Your co-workers will likely appreciate your thorough approach and attention to detail. When it comes to health, consider practical adjustments to your daily routine that are sustainable. For example, it won’t be good timing to drastically change your diet, but you will feel successful when you switch out a few unhealthy choices for more nutritious options.
The April 26th New Moon will be in Taurus and your 6th house of daily work and wellness. Use the power of this New Moon to set intentions related to healthy eating, regular exercise, maintaining a manageable schedule, getting sufficient sleep, and working towards long-term goals.
