Monthly General Horoscopes - April 2018

Aries

Whether you are a March or an April born Aries this is going to be an important month for you, with the Sun not leaving until the 20th April and your birthday month still playing out until then. This year there is a stronger than ever sense that this is the year where it matters how you start the year, that this is the year when following your personal truth is a must. If this feels like an important solar year it's because it is and not just because of the major developments unfolding professionally and starting to develop on the income fronts. In 2010 Uranus returned to Aries for the first time since 1935, with the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected the planet that helps us find our personal truth. Since then Uranus has been working behind the scenes to both point out your most authentic path forward and help you find it. Each year since then the Sun, Mercury and Venus have returned to get your birthday month and new solar year off the ground and in the process touch base with Uranus, making that authentic path forward easier to establish. As they leave the message to Uranus is 'we'll see you next year'. Except there will be no next year, for with Uranus leaving Aries next month it will be another eight decades before you move into a new solar year with this beacon of truth leading the way. It is not a question of needing to get it right this year, for there is no wrong or right and more that this is the year to follow your personal truth. It is next month that Uranus will join the planets just starting to arrive in your income sector this month, where for the next eight years he'll work with the powerful planets in play on the career front.

Taurus

There is nothing more ordinary than the Sun's return to Taurus on the 20th April to kick off your birthday month and new solar year. Yet the new solar year this will take you into is anything but ordinary and this is something you'll already be starting to suspect long before that. It began with Venus' return to Taurus on the 31st March and as the 1st April is your ruling planet's first full day back in her home sign, this really will be the start of an incredible new journey. It is not very often that we get to say 'this is the first full day of the rest of my life' and really mean it or have it supported by the stars, but the 1st April is the closest to perfect as it gets. Even by the time Venus leaves Taurus on the 25th April, five days into your birthday month and new solar year, chances are you won't be able to explain why this year feels different. Yet from the moment you step into the month your heart will be screaming at you that this is anything but an ordinary solar year you're about to move into. The truth will be revealed before your birthday month is over, but not until Uranus returns to Taurus on the 16th May. Apart from a few months later in the year Uranus, planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected is here then until 2026. Uranus is the planet that will help you find your truth and help you move every aspect of your life onto a more authentic path, which is why the doors are opening to major new beginnings. You're not just preparing to move into a new solar year, but major new life chapter. With Jupiter in your relationship sector for the first time in 12 years, this might create some tension, as you work out how to balance your personal and relationship needs. However, when Venus and Jupiter, the planets of love and luck move into opposition on the 17th April, they will help you figure that out. There is also massive support all month and for the next six years, from adventurous forces.

Gemini

At the same time that things are settling down professionally, they are also settling down financially, though in both cases to a whole new normal. The Sun, Venus and Mercury's departure from your career sector last month will always take the spotlight off your career and professional situation, matters and options, but with Chiron here since 2010 and Neptune since 2012, things never completely go off the boil. This year you have Jupiter in your work sector for the first time in 12 years, but in retrograde motion he is not pushing things. On both the job and career fronts this is a chance to regroup and with Chiron finally leaving on the 17th April, to shift the focus from laying old professional demons to rest and more onto chasing your dreams. However, with Neptune here until 2026 and Jupiter in retrograde motion in your work sector until July, the two planets driving your professional year are in no hurry. This not only creates an opportunity to pull back professionally, but personally as well. While the month long wind down of your old solar year doesn't begin until the Sun returns to a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart on the 20th April, Venus will start the month here. Until she returns to Gemini on the 25th April, Venus is taking your heart on a nostalgic trip down memory lane. Yet this is more than a chance to embrace old memories, with Venus making time out to relax and recharge your batteries enjoyable. With Saturn turning retrograde in your financial sector on the 18th April and Pluto on the 23rd April, Mars will keep money matters moving, even here there is a call to pull back and regroup.

Cancer

This is always going to be an important month for having your professional hat on, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of April in your career sector. Yet while this is more important than ever, there is also a lot less urgency and there is none of the constant rush and pressure on the job front. It was on the 18th March that Mars not only left your work sector, but wrapped up over three years of near continuous planetary activity. There is no longer that need to have your work hat on 24/7. Uranus, who has been in your career sector since 2010 is leaving next month, with his last full week bringing a need to have your professional hat on 24/7. However, your work sector rules what occupies you on a daily basis, where in your career sector Uranus' focus is on leaving you with an authentic sense of direction. With Mercury in retrograde motion here until the 15th April and then not leaving until the 14th May, two days before Uranus leaves this is an important professional month, but not an urgent one. It is on the 20th April that the Sun will leave your career sector and join Venus in a social and serendipitous part of your chart. Venus returned here on the 31st March, so your social life is already calling your name from the get go. At the same time, with Jupiter in his first full month in retrograde motion in a playful part of your chart, life can't be all work and no play. A Full Moon underway on the 1st April can work to your advantage, bringing work/life balance reminders from the get go.

Leo

For the first time in our lifetime you start the month with Mars, Saturn and Pluto in your work sector at the same time, with Mars and Saturn aligned in the first three days of the month. This sends a clear message from the get go that this is going to be a busy month, yet by the end of the month, this will have moved to a whole new level. The Sun's return to your career sector on the 20th April is something that happens at this time every year, but like Venus who returned on the 31st March, there will be a sense from the get go that something is developing on the career front as well. That something is Uranus' return to your career sector on the 16th May, beginning a visit that won't run its course until 2026. With Saturn in your work sector until December 2020, Pluto until 2024 and Neptune in your career sector until 2026, what is unfolding are not just some of the most important professional developments of the year or even in decades, but in a lifetime. The 1st April is Venus' first full day in your career sector and as your heart connects with the professional drumbeat, that's when a sense of anticipation will really kick in. However, with Saturn turning retrograde on the 18th April, Pluto on the 23rd April and new developments on the career front taking months to unfold, there really is a call to pace yourself. Fortunately, even though the Sun will leave your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery on the 20th April, Mercury is staying on until the 14th May, to keep the spirit of adventure alive. Venus will leave your career sector and return to a social and serendipitous part of your chart on the 25th April, doing her part to ensure life doesn't become all work and no play.

Virgo

It is while there is a natural lull on the professional front that life is literally exploding all around you. So much so that while Venus will return to your career sector on the 25th April and Mars will return to your work sector next month, it might be too late by then to ever go back to an all work and no play mode. Yet if you're looking for a moral compass you need to look no further than Saturn, hard taskmaster of the cosmos for some perspective. Whichever way Saturn leans is an indication of which way life should lean and that means on the playful side of the fence. You start the month with Saturn, Pluto and Mars all in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart at the same time, something that has never happened before in our lifetime. Mars, the last to arrive only returned on the 18th March so this is something you're still adjusting to. However, what shifted the pendulum even more to the playful side was Venus' return to your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery on the 31st March. This was an ordinary event that is set to have extraordinary consequences. At first glance, this is just Venus getting a three week jump on the Sun, who will return to this adventurous part of your chart on the 20th April, as he does at this time every year. Yet both will sense that there is nothing temporary about this, with Uranus returning to begin an eight year visit next month. Once playful and adventurous forces come together, they will become the dominant force in the heavens for the next six weeks. This might be an important month for financial and money matters, but playful and adventurous forces hold the real power.

Libra

While the Sun determines where the solar spotlight is directed at any given time, there are times when this is not the most dominant force and this month this just might be the case. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of April in your relationship sector, always has and always will. Yet without the challenges of the past and with Mercury, planet of communication in retrograde motion here until the 15th April, there isn't the urgency or the pressure. This is still an important area of your chart, but the real balance of power is on the home and family fronts this month. For the first time in our lifetime, you start the month with Saturn, Mars and Pluto all in your home and family sector at the same time. While Mars, who returned on the 18th March, will leave next month, he'll return in August for a double dip visit. Whatever is happening now on the home front will remain important all year. However, you will find that you're able to pull back, especially once Saturn turns retrograde in your home and family sector on the 18th April and Pluto on the 23rd April. Mars is a planet that wants things done yesterday, but Saturn and Pluto will keep that in check. In the meantime, there is a new sense of confidence on the financial front, along with a desire to embrace and follow your passions. The same area of your chart that rules your financial situation and money matters also rules your passions, so both will be activated this month. Yet here, as is the case on the home front, this is the start of something that will not only play out for months but years. This is more an awakening, especially to a desire for more passion or to follow your passions. The month starts with a Full Moon in Libra underway, so there will also be a case to follow your own truth.

Scorpio

It will come as no surprise that there will be a need to find a balance between work and play this month. For not only is that always the case at this time of year, it has been your reality for several months now. Even though the Sun, Mercury and Venus all left a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart last month and returned to your work sector, this pendulum hasn't shifted fully to the work side of the fence and won't. Yet the practice you've had when it comes to a balance between work and play, should also benefit your relationships this month. It was in the closing hours of March that Venus returned to your relationship sector, with the planet of love and guardian of your relationships the first to arrive this year. The 1st April is Venus' first full day and with the Sun not returning to turn the spotlight onto your relationships until the 20th April, this is giving her a head start. Whether single, in a relationship or between relationships, this is a chance to let your heart take the lead before there is any call for reality checks or relationship housekeeping. Yet for the first time in 12 years Venus and the Sun this month and Mercury next month will return to find Jupiter on the opposite side of the sky, in Scorpio. This is not a problem and more a reality that you will have to balance your personal and relationship needs. Venus and Jupiter's opposition on the 17th April will be the first time those needs clash, but as the planets of love and luck, this should be a chance to recognise the kind of balance you need.

Sagittarius

The one thing that you can be certain of, is that the Sun will leave a playful part of your chart and return to your work sector on the 20th April. This is something that happens at this time every year, always has and always will. This makes April a month when there is always a need for balance between work and play, but this has been relatively easy. There has been no major planetary activity in your work sector since 2012 and no outer planet, which can keep planetary activity going for years at a time, since 1942. This means that while the solar system will move onto your work situation and job matters at this time each year, it is only temporarily, with a few months focus at most. On the playful side of the fence you have had Uranus in your romantic and creative sector since 2010, so while the Sun has moved on each April this will never completely go off the boil. In other words, for the last eight years, the pull from the playful side of the fence has been stronger than the work side of the fence. The Sun is only in your work sector for a month and Venus, who returned on the 31st March will leave on the 25th. Yet this is the year that the balance of power shifts. For after eight years in your romantic and creative sector Uranus will follow the Sun into your work sector on the 16th May, with Venus already preparing from the get go this month. Already waiting for this is a powerful line up of planets in your income sector. Maybe Mars, Saturn and Pluto knew something when they came together in your income sector for the first time in our lifetime, getting in position before major new doors open on the job front.

Capricorn

Moving into April with Pluto in Capricorn has been the norm since the planet of change and revolution returned in 2008, but this is the month he turns retrograde, bringing a chance to pull back. This year it is not just Pluto in Capricorn, but Mars and Saturn as well, something that has never happened before in our lifetime. With Saturn turning retrograde on the 18th April and Pluto on the 23rd April they will both go into review mode, letting Mars take the lead. Not due to leave until the 16th May, Mars will spend the whole month firing up your passions and fighting spirit. And the timing couldn't be better, with Venus' return to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on the 31st March and the Sun's on the 20th April, the beginning of something big. It is next month that they will be followed by Uranus, who will make your romantic and creative sector his home until 2026. Any planet moving through a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart is naturally at a friendly aspect to any planet in Capricorn. As well as creating a lot more confidence, this will also channel some of Mars' energy into your romantic and creative passions. However, with a Full Moon underway in your career sector on the 1st April and Venus returning to your work sector on the 25th April, work/life balance is a priority. For what is unfolding in a fairly small and ordinary way on the fun, playful, romantic and creative front this month is the start of something huge. You've learned from the past when it comes to both the importance of work/life balance and how to make it happen.

Aquarius

While you have an exciting and vibrant month, on a number of fronts a similar theme is starting to emerge. That theme is a need to pull back and pace yourself. While Saturn and Pluto will not only spend the whole of 2018 together in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart, but are here together until late 2020, Mars is passing through. You're in the final years of a three decade long Saturn cycle that won't complete until December 2020 and Pluto won't return to Aquarius until 2024. When you have that kind of wind down this is more a chance to reflect while life goes on. However, when you reach the last full month of a two year Mars cycle, then body, mind and soul are all in need of some recharging of batteries. You also have Jupiter in his first full month in retrograde motion in your career sector and Mercury in retrograde motion in your communication sector until the 15th April. That theme of a need to pull back and take time to hear yourself think is being repeated across your personal and professional lives. Yet that most definitely doesn't mean turning into a hermit, with Venus, in particular, having some strong views on how to spend the down time the stars are demanding. Until the 25th April home is where the heart is, with Venus drawing your attention to home and family matters from the get go. It is on the 25th April that Venus will kick off the most romantically charged months of the year, giving matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative a chance. At the same time, the month starts with a Full Moon in an adventurous part of your chart underway. The month starts over Easter and from the get go there will be a call to embrace the weekend spirit.

Pisces

There is going to be a lot of focus on income matters this month, mainly because that is always the case at this time of year. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of April in your income sector, keeping the solar spotlight on your income situation, matters and options until leaving on the 20th April. Yet with Mercury in retrograde motion here until the 15th April and not leaving until the 14th May, the focus will remain on income matters well into next month. Yet by the time the Sun leaves there will be a feel that this year is different. Uranus, who has been in your income sector since 2010, should be preparing to focus more on the journey once Mercury leaves next month, except he will follow him out the door just two days later. The major focus that has been on income matters for the last eight years is running its course. However, this is less a call to wrap things up, for Uranus will return in November for a few months to do that. This is more a call to make the most of the last time the Sun and Mercury are here, to put things on the path you want them to continue on. Meanwhile, Venus has already left your income sector, having taken off her planet of money hat when she left on the 31st March. Instead, Venus will emerge wearing her planet of love and guardian of your relationships hat as you move into the new month. In your communication sector until the 25th April, Venus has turned her focus onto giving your heart and your relationships a voice. The timing couldn't come with better timing for with Chiron, planet of healing leaving Pisces on the 17th April, it's time to lay old ghosts to rest.
