APRIL 2018 HOROSCOPES
Balancing your career and personal interests and family life is the major challenge this month. Career success might entail some personal sacrifices, but you seem willing to make them. The upper half of your Horoscope is still dominant and it will always be dominant this year. So this is a career year and a career month. But with the short term planets in the bottom half, give some time to home and family too. Mars is still in your 10th House this month (along with Saturn and Pluto) - this is showing career success, but success which is earned. Health will need more watching after the 20th. Make sure to get enough rest. Enhance your health with scalp, face, arm and shoulder massage. Cranial sacral therapy is always good for you, but especially this month. Until the 20th, you’re in a personal pleasure period, but it is modified by the demands of the career. On the 20th, as the Sun enters the money house, you begin a yearly financial peak. Venus, your Financial Planet, will be in your money house until the 24th - she is strong there - it is her own sign and House. Thus earning power (the financial magnetism) is stronger than usual. The Sun’s move into the money house on the 20th shows happy money - money that is both earned and spent in happy ways. It is good for speculations too. Children and children figures have good financial ideas for you. Love also seems happy. Pursue your financial goals and love will find you. Business partnerships or joint ventures could happen too.
Health is still excellent and gets even better after the 20th. There is only one long term planet in stressful alignment with you - Jupiter. Occasionally the Moon will make stressful aspects but these are very short term. You have plenty of energy to achieve whatever you choose. How will you use this energy? That is the issue. The planetary power is now mostly in the East so you are in a period of great personal independence. You have the power to make the changes that need to be made for your happiness. Later on, as the planets move westward it will be more difficult to do. Until the 20th, you’re in a spiritual kind of period. Good for meditation, spiritual studies and spiritual practice. After the 20th, as the Sun moves into your sign, you enter a yearly (one of them) personal pleasure peaks. Your personal appearance shines. It's amazing how extra energy improves the physical appearance. Venus in your sign until the 24th is also good for the personal appearance. It adds beauty, grace and a sense of style to the image. This bodes well for love. It is an excellent time for buying clothes or accessories as the sense of style is naturally good. Family seems very devoted to you after the 20th - especially a parent or parent figure. There is good family support. Finances are still complicated until the 15th. Mercury is still retrograde, so avoid making major purchases or important financial decisions until the 15th. Financial clarity will return after the 15th. The financial intuition is excellent from the 15th onwards.
There are 3 powerful Houses in your Horoscope this month — the 8th, 11th and 12th. The power in the 8th House shows a need to de-clutter your life. Get rid of waste and things that you don’t need or use. Clear the decks so that the new and better can come to you. It is also excellent for projects involving personal re-invention and transformation, and many of you are deeply involved in these things. Power in the 11th House shows that it is a social kind of month. There is much involvement with friends, groups and group activities. On the 20th, your 12th House of spirituality becomes powerful and so spiritual studies, meditation and charitable kinds of activities are important. Love is a bit more complicated this month as your love planet, Jupiter, is retrograde. So there is a need to go slow in love. Don’t make important love decisions one way or another. Get clarity on the issue. Time will resolve things one way or another. Health is good this month. There is only one long term planet, Neptune, in stressful alignment with you. The Moon, on occasion and for only brief periods, will make stressful aspects. These are not enough to cause serious problems. If you maintain harmony in love and with friends, health will be even better. Safe sex and sexual moderation are always important for you but especially this month - libido is much stronger than usual. Drive more defensively from the 17th to the 19th.
Health, like last month, still needs watching. The good news is that you will feel a big improvement from the 20th onwards. In the meantime, rest and relax more. Never allow yourself to get over-tired. Thigh massage, liver cleanses and safe sex will do much to enhance health. You’re working hard in your career and there is much success happening, but what good is that if health suffers? Finances look good, though you’re earning every bit of it. This is not the chart of a lottery winner. You still have the financial favor of bosses, elders, parents and authority figures these days. They seem supportive of financial goals. Pay raises (official or unofficial) can still happen until the 20th. On the 20th, finances happen much easier and you should see an increase. Your Financial Planet will be in the benefic 11th House - the House of fondest hopes and wishes. Thus fondest financial hopes and wishes happen, and will no doubt be replaced with new fondest hopes and wishes. The social contacts are important financially. Probably you are spending more on technology - but it is a good investment. Career is still important all month, but tapers off a bit - becomes less frenetic - after the 20th. The love life is active but stressful this month. Your spouse, partner or current love seems combative and short tempered. This will improve after the 20th. For singles, best to focus on quality dating rather than quantity. Older and more settled people seem more alluring these days.
Though a marriage is not seen in your Horoscope - your 7th House of love and marriage is basically empty - love and romance is still happening. The Lord of your Horoscope is traveling with your love planet this month - until the 20th - and this denotes a romantic meeting or opportunity. Those of you already in relationships seem much closer to the beloved this period. Foreign travel allures you these days, but be more cautious here. Travel only if you must, and then try not to schedule flights too closely and be sure to insure your tickets. The month ahead looks very successful. On the 20th, the Sun crosses your Midheaven and enters your 10th House of career. You begin a yearly career peak. This is where the focus should be. The Sun, in your Horoscope, denotes you - your body and image. He is at the top of your chart, showing that you are “on top” (in your rightful place) - promotions are likely. People look up to you. Venus, your career planet, is also in the 10th House of career until the 24th. So she is powerful on you behalf - she is in her own sign and House. Communication skills and good social relations with superiors are helping your career. Your likability is perhaps as important as your professional skills. Finances are still complicated until the 15th, but afterwards improve. This is when your Financial Planet starts to move forward again. Over spending - and impulse spending - are the main financial dangers.
Overall health and energy are good this month, and will get even better from the 20th onwards. With abundance of energy, all kinds of things become possible. Things you considered impossible even a year ago are now eminently doable. Good health is a form of wealth. Children and children figures seem more troublesome this month - they seem combative and argumentative. This should improve after the 20th. Your spiritual planet travels with Uranus this month until the 20th, and this shows important spiritual changes - changes in your practice, teachers, teachings and attitudes. There are some disruptions in spiritual or charitable organizations that you’re involved with. Creative types are especially inspired from the 17th to the 19th. Mercury, the Lord of your Horoscope, spends the month in your 8th House. This is wonderful for weight loss or detox regimes. There is more sex appeal to your image too. The power in the 8th House until the 20th shows that your spouse, partner or current love is having a banner financial month and you seem very involved with it. Your personal finances are good. Your Financial Planet in Taurus makes nice aspects to you. Also she (Venus) will be in the benefic 9th House until the 24th. This shows financial increase. Love seems happy. A serious romantic relationship has either happened or will happen in the coming year. Your love planet is receiving very nice aspects. On the 24th, Venus, your Financial Planet, enters your 10th House of career. Thus you have the financial favor of bosses, parents, parent figures and authority figures. Pay raises (official or unofficial) can happen.
This has been a prosperous year and the month ahead is prosperous too. Only things slow down a bit after the 22nd as Pluto, your Financial Planet, starts to retrograde. You need more clarity in your finances - in your strategy and thinking. Take the time to research things more. You’re still in the midst of a yearly love and social peak until the 20th. Singles are dating more and attending more parties and gatherings. Those married are also socializing more. Singles find romantic opportunity in the online world - the social networking and dating sites. Spiritual type people also allure you these days. There is more socializing at home and with the family and family members like to play cupid. Venus, the Lord of your Horoscope, spends most of the month in your 8th House. On the 20th, the Sun moves into that House, so the month ahead is sexually active. Libido is stronger than usual. Whatever your age or stage in life, there is more libido than usual. The planetary power is mostly in the Western social sector this month, and this has been the case for the past few months, so personal independence is not that strong. Libra, more than most, handles this well. They like consensus and like gaining the cooperation of others. Your good comes through others and not so much from personal initiative. Health needs watching until the 20th. Be sure, as always, to get enough rest. Foot massage and spiritual healing will do wonders for you. You should see improvement after the 20th, but health still needs watching.
Prosperity is still very strong, though a bit slower since last month. This slowdown has some good points. It allows you to gain more facts and more clarity in your finances. It is a “pause” that refreshes. Financial opportunities are still seeking you out, but need more study - don’t just jump into them. Your 6th House of health and work is powerful until the 20th. This is excellent for job seekers and for those of you who employ others. There are many opportunities. Those of you already working could be doing “side jobs” or overtime. On the 20th, the Sun moves into your 7th House of love and social activities, and you begin a yearly love and social peak. You’re mixing with high and mighty people and, for singles, this is an allurement. Also a lot of the socializing seems career related. Career is not that important this month (this will change in coming months), but you can set the groundwork by attending the right parties (and perhaps hosting them) and socializing with people who can help you careerwise. Health is basically good. There are no long term planets in stressful alignment with you. However, after the 20th, the Sun is in stressful alignment (and Venus too but only until the 24th). So health and energy are not up to the usual standard that you’ve become accustomed to. Enhance health through back and knee massage. A visit to the chiropractor or osteopath might be a good idea.
Perhaps it's a good thing that Jupiter, the Lord of your Horoscope, is retrograde all month (and for the next few months). It might weaken self esteem and self confidence, but on the other hand these qualities aren’t that necessary now. The planetary power is now in the Western social sector of your chart. Personal initiative is not that important and can actually be a hindrance. This is a time to develop the social skills and to let others have their way, so long as it isn’t destructive. Take a vacation from yourself and your self interest and focus more on others. Allow good to come to you through others. The month ahead is basically happy. Health and energy are excellent and you can enhance it further through neck massage and cranial sacral therapy until the 24th, and through arm and shoulder massage afterwards. The power in your 5th House until the 20th shows that you are enjoying life - you are still in one of your yearly personal pleasure peaks until the 20th. The financial life is highly active. You’re working hard for earnings, but they are happening. Every investment carries some risk, but try to keep the risk taking within bounds. Calculated, well thought out risks pay off, but casino type risks are not advisable. On the 20th, as the Sun moves into your 6th House, you’re more in the mood for work. Those of you unemployed will have good (happy) job opportunities - perhaps with a foreign company or even in a foreign land. Your work can involve foreign travel.
Capricorns are always ambitious, but the month ahead is not an especially strong career month. Your 4th House is chock full of planets while your 10th House of career is basically empty - only the Moon travels through the 10th House on the 1st, 28th and 29th. Now is the time to set up the psychological infrastructure for future career success - get the home and family life in order. Find your point of emotional harmony and stay there. Emotional wellness will lead to career success down the road. Family seems very devoted to you these days. Your family planet, Mars, spends the month in your own sign - Capricorn. There is a closeness here. Your 1st House of self is chock full of planets while your 7th House of love is empty (only the Moon moves through there on the 21st and 22nd). Love doesn’t seem a big issue. Singles need to be careful of too much self will as this will tend to constrict the love life. It's great to have your own way, but in love it can create problems. On the 20th, as the Sun enters your 5th House, you begin a yearly personal pleasure peak, so there are fun and leisure activities happening. It is good to deal with the children or children figures in your life too - you have a good rapport with them. Health needs watching until the 20th. Enhance the health through more rest (as always) and through scalp, face, head, arm and shoulder massage. Health and energy will improve after the 20th, but still needs watching.
The two planets involved with your career - Jupiter, the occupant of your 10th House and Pluto your career planet - are both retrograde this month. Jupiter is retrograde all month and Pluto starts to retrograde on the 22nd, so it's time for a career review. There is a need for mental clarity here. Avoid making important career decisions from the 22nd onwards. Only time will resolve certain issues. With most of the planets now below the horizon - in the night side of your Horoscope - it is good to focus on the home, family and your emotional wellness. This is the psychological infrastructure upon which career is based. A good foundation will lead to a good, solid career. Aquarians are known for their mental abilities and communication skills, and this month they are very much enhanced. There is a lot of power in your 3rd House of communication and intellectual interests. A good time for students. The mind is sharp and absorbs information well. On the 20th, the Sun will enter your 4th House of home and family. There will be more socializing from home and with the family. Family connections can be important in love. A lover can move in with you (or would like to). There is an important romantic meeting from the 17th to the 19th. Love, in general, is close to home this month. No need to look afar. Health is basically good, but after the 20th needs more watching. We don’t see any serious health problems here, only less energy. You can enhance the health through right diet and abdominal massage.
A prosperous and basically happy month. You’re still in the midst of a yearly financial peak until the 20th. Your love planet occupies the money house showing that social contacts - and the current love - are helpful in finances. A business type partnership or joint venture can happen - but don’t make any decisions about this until after the 15th. Your Financial Planet spends the month in Capricorn and is very near to Saturn. This is basically good. It shows sound financial judgement and a long term outlook on finance. A very good period to set up savings and investment programs and budgets. The Sun in the money house also shows conservatism in finance - it shows money that is earned the old fashioned way - through work. Career is good this year, but will get even better at the end of the year and next year (2019). With your career planet, Jupiter, now retrograde it is time to review your career goals and see where improvements can be made. When Jupiter starts moving forward again, you will be in a good position to implement your plans. There is something to be said for retrograde motion - it often provides needed “pauses” - time for reflection. Health is excellent this month. You can enhance it further through scalp and face massage until the 20th and through neck massage afterwards. You’re making some needed changes to the health regime from the 17th to the 19th. There can be some disruptions or dramas at work that period too. By the 20th, short term financial goals are met and you can start to focus on your intellectual development. The Sun’s entrance into your 3rd House on the 20th is good for students, teachers and writers. The mind is sharper and the communication skills stronger.
