What with a Cardinal T-Square, Mercury retrograde, Venus moving direct, there is SO MUCH happening celestially this month. Want to know how it is going to impact you in April? Well, have a read of my detailed forecast and find out!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to all my Arien readers!! With your ruler Mars and Mercury both in Taurus and in your 2nd house for the first 3 weeks of April, you Rams will be focused on increasing your earning potential. Ask for a pay-rise, or promotion before 9th April, as after this date Mercury turns retrograde till 3rd May, and missing emails, delays and misunderstandings may take place after this date.
With the Sun in your 1st house, you Rams may be feeling full of vitality, confidence and energy. However, a retrograde Jupiter in Libra in your 7th house is opposing your Sun during 3rd-12th April. Your plans to shine and ascend are being thwarted by a colleague/ competitor or even your Spouse, who appears more charismatic and more knowledgeable than you. Rather than pout about it, become their friend and join forces. You’ll fare better as allies than opponents!
Saturn in Sagittarius turns retrograde on 6th April till late August in your 9th house. Responsibilities overseas may demand that you decide on your priorities in the next few months. Or a college course/spiritual retreat you’d missed out on may now have new dates, forcing you to decide if you want to put in the extra hours.
The Full Moon on 11th April is in Libra and next to Jupiter, so get cracking on forming Alliances, as you may receive an award/recognition in front of your Peers around this time. Or your Spouse may have big news of an achievement, or show appreciation of you in a big way.
Pluto in Capricorn moves retrograde on 20th April till 28th September in your 10th house. You Rams are being asked to transform your career, by thinking ‘outside of the box’ and approaching it differently than you did previously.
Venus is in your 12th house, the house of fears and sorrows for most of April. You may be experiencing relationship dramas, fearing betrayal and generally feeling vulnerable as regards your Spouse/Partner. Single Rams may feel despairing of ever finding romantic love! Things will improve in May!
The New Moon on 26th April is in Taurus and in your 2nd house of money. You Rams may see a boost in your finances in May…WOO HOO!
Your ruler Venus is retrograde in Pisces in your 11th house for the first 2 weeks of April, and moving forward the last 2 weeks. So, for the first half of April, the past is around you Bulls. You may be contacted by old friends, ex-lovers who you haven’t seen in ages. Or you may put new energy into making an old forgotten dream come true. Or you may be approached to help disadvantaged people, as you may have been in the past, but this time you may have time to help. For the last 2 weeks of April, it’s all about new friendships, new relationships, new groups/clubs and new dreams.
With the Sun in Aries your 12th house, you Bulls may be feeling slightly melancholy, tired and a bit anxious & fearful for most of April. This will shift when the Sun moves into Taurus on 20th April, as for 4 weeks, you’ll be revitalised!
On 6th April-23rd August, Saturn in Sagittarius turns retrograde in your 8th house. For most of April it makes a harmonious angle to Uranus in your 12th house. Someone may unexpectedly pop up and push your buttons as regards your joint savings & investments, your debts, taxes or inheritances. Or an unexpected crisis may cause you anxiety and stress in April, related to you ‘cutting corners’ or overlooking something that turns out to be very important.
The Full Moon on 11th April is in Libra and in your 6th house. You may finally get that pet for which you have been wishing, or you may receive reward/recognition for your hard work/service around this time. Or you may have good news about a recent health issue.

Or your dreams to marry may suddenly come true via an ex-lover or close friend or through one of your rivals!
On 9th April Mercury turns retrograde till 3rd May, so don’t sign any contracts (they’ll be delays/revisions!) or purchase any electronic items (they won’t work properly!).

This may cause misunderstandings, missed emails, delays in new job descriptions, revisions…so you may wonder if you will ever get that new job, pay-rise or promotion!

The key is balance, dear Fishes, despite some unexpected financial changes that may happen between 9th-19th April.
