Your April horoscopes
Everything seems to be falling neatly into place but you might easily overlook an important fact which could impact negatively on your bank balance. To avoid this, check that you have attended to all the details and read the fine print. Blaming others after the event for your own oversight won’t make you feel better and won’t fix the problem.
While you are normally a patient soul who takes your time to enjoy life’s simple pleasures, you might discover you are uncharacteristically hot under the collar when Mercury retrogrades on the 18th and something promised is not delivered. The full moon on the 28th brings matters to a head. Try to remain calm. This delay will ultimately work in your favour.
It’s that time again. Your ruling planet stops in its tracks and starts moving backwards on the 18th. You will always find this frustrating until you realise that three times a year the cosmos asks you to slow down and spend time looking at things more deeply, which you cannot do when you are rushing along at your normal pace. It’s time to get in touch with your instincts and feelings.
Chances are you have noticed Pluto has been overhauling your relationships. There is no point looking back in anger, or regret, or wondering what might have been. You may be a tad nostalgic this month, but at the same time this is part of a healing process and perfectly natural. Endings must happen before new beginnings. Your heart and soul are gearing up for the birth of a new future.
Sometimes lions just like to laze about in the sunshine, but eventually you have to go hunting once more. Mars is moving forward now, boosting your energy and vitality, so it’s time to get busy. There may be a couple of obstacles to surmount as you set out on your quest. By the full moon on the 28th you will catch what you are after, but not without putting in the effort.
Just when you thought you had dealt with every detail, more unfinished business pops up. After months of assessment and analysis, you feel ready to start a new project, but it’s better to you finish one thing before starting another. Mercury is retrograde from the 18th, which is the right time to go over anything that needs revision. Meanwhile, holiday plans may change at the last minute.
A brief respite from work obligations, or other duties is offered when Saturn departs Libra and heads back into Virgo. However, this does not mean that you get to handball your responsibilities permanently. This is just the way the cosmos gets you used to the idea of being disciplined and organised. Use the time wisely to make decisions and set limits.
The full moon in your sign on the 28th is a real doozy. Pent up emotions, or frustrations could easily boil over. If you tune in to what is really going on, you will manage these communication difficulties with insight and grace. This full moon will deepen some connections, and could completely sever others, making those relationships that survive, much stronger and more worthwhile.
So much has happened in such a short time it seems hard to believe. Your feet are barely touching the ground. In order to sustain the momentum and make the most of this fantastic cosmic vibration, you need to ground yourself in reality. This means taking out the garbage on a regular basis and attending to those menial tasks that can no longer be avoided.
Before you make decisions about your future, now is a good time to look at the logistics of what needs to change and how to go about making it happen. Even if you have had to give up on some of your dreams, you are being reminded that reality is only meaningful when filled with the beauty of your hopes and wishes. Be guided by new dreams and aspirations.
The full moon on the 28th is an important one for your career and relationships. You might feel a bit like a spectator, but in fact you are a key player and the ball is in your court. The trick now is to hit a winner, and to do that you need to keep your eye on the ball and follow through. Don’t sit on the sidelines. Persistence and hard work will eventually pay off.
Things are building to a crescendo. You are not quite there yet, but your instinct and intuition tell you that it won’t be long before you are exactly where you want to be. The next couple of months are quite scintillating, for just about anything might happen. What you value most will begin to materialise, the only test is to discover what you really want.
