Your April Horoscope:
Aries: Expect a slow start this month, as you continue to regroup, integrate and get your proverbial ducks in row. Your patience is soon to pay off…namely around April 15th, the day of the New Moon and Mercury Retrograde going direct, both in your sign. Take advantage of this celestial reboot, to initiate new plans. Be clear about what you want to manifest, and realistic with your expectations. You are learning diligence, and that there’s no shortcuts. #ThePowerOfNow
Taurus: With Venus, Mars, Saturn, Pluto, and the Sun all inhabiting Earth signs this month, you’re like a pig in mud, or better yet, a bull in clover! Roll around, get your hoofs dirty and connect to the abundant energy of Mother Earth that is flowing through your celestial veins. Sprinkle in some water—dreams, imagination and soulful promptings--and you have a recipe for success. But only if you leave your field of dreams and make it real. #ImNotLazyImDreaming
Gemini: Mars, the warrior planet, is visiting, or more accurately, storming--like a cosmic military campaign--your 8th House of Deep Transformation. The result is either: 1) You’re feeling shell-shocked from all the transformation; or 2) You are feeling lighter than ever, and completely liberated. Or perhaps a bit of the two? Whatever your experience, this is a moment, when there is no stone unturned. Be willing to dig deep and explore every corner of your psyche. #TakeNoPrisoners
Cancer: It is said that relationships are a mirror to ourselves, our deepest beings. This is so true for you this month, Cancer! With a stellium of plants orbiting your house of relationships, you are seeing your reflection through others—the meaningful relationships in your life. These are powerful mirrors. If you don’t like what you see, step back and revaluate. Or, it may be time to look for new mirrors? Either way, just get good with you. #LovelyReflections
Leo: If you wake-up one morning, say around the morning of April 15th, and suddenly feel that you need to book a trip to Europe or engage in some other exciting new experience--pay attention! You’re not tripping, your stars are calling you to expand your world view--and as a result, yourself. Inspiration may come in different ways, but the common denominator is the desire to live BIG. Be spontaneous. Be bold, cause, tramps like us, baby, we were: #BornToRun
Virgo: Your word for the month, is: Passion! Planetary lovers Venus and Mars in fellow earth signs, Taurus and Capricorn, are dancing in your houses of Sex (and Transformation) and Romance (and Creativity). Translation: Your desires are being stirred, resulting in a cosmic tango between your creative, self-expression, and your deepest impulses, i.e. passion. In ancient times, desire, or Eros, was seen as a Divine Gift. Mysterious, complicated and compelling #PassionPlay
Libra: Visualize a set of scales (your totem), one side represents you, and the other, your relationships. This month, your cosmic scales are being tipped to the relationship side of the equation. You’re all about relationships, Libra, but in this case the balance may be too extreme, throwing off your essential equilibrium. Time to find middle ground. The Scorpio Full Moon in your house of Values, says the root of this balance lies honoring your sense of self-worth. #IAmValuable
Scorpio: Communication is highlighted this month. This may come in different ways: some great conversations, writing, teaching, or any forum where you can share your wisdom. If you feel like you don’t have any grand chestnuts up your sleeve right now, direct this energy towards being of service. Either way, Scorpio, you are seeking meaningful ways to share your gifts. Note to self: self-expression is a very good and healthy thing! Don’t be shy, it’s to #TimeToShare
Sagittarius: Freedom and money. Interesting how these two words go together, Sag. This month you are looking at your relationship with money. Is it a good relationship, or an unhealthy one? You’ve been in the school of hard knocks for a while, but the energy is shifting. Your stars are saying, get in the driver’s seat, and realize the you have the power to create an abundant life. Stretch? No, my friend. You now know the following: The more you value you, the more it’s #MoneyInTheBank
Capricorn: What is your milieu, Cap? Let me offer a definition: “Origin, French 1795-1802, meaning surroundings, especially of a social or cultural nature.” This month, your stars are encouraging you to seek-out your peeps, your true community. So, get friendly and reach out to like-minded folks. In the process, don’t hesitate to network, shake hands, and even, social-media your life, especially biz-wise. Why? Because, it is great to have friends, and your presence has: #Influence
Aquarius: Your theme for the month comes through the infamous words of Elvis the King: “A little less conversation, a little more action, please!” Words are great, but you are looking for substance. This is especially true with on the career front. You are getting tired of the wishy-washy, unfocused energy of others, and may need to clear the decks. This doesn’t mean quitting your job, it’s more about finding your identity amongst the chaos, then standing for it. #Where’sTheBeef?
Pisces: May the odds ever be in your favor…you have much working in your favor cosmically this month, Pisces! There’s a yummy Full Moon in Scorpio, a fellow water sign, in your house of travel, philosophy and worldly affairs; combined with some lovely earth succor, watering your dreams and deeper aspirations. The caveat is that you need to stay present to every little detail…no sleeping at the wheel, or slipping into past realities. The past is the past. #WinningTheGame
