April Monthly Horoscope - Aquarius
Dear Aquarius, Mercury is going direct starting from the 15th, so this puts an end to inconveniences with commuting, miscommunications with your siblings or mental confusion! You might still feel like your communication is more inhibited than usual, though, or that you find yourself caught in negative mental patterns, especially on the 4th, 5th and 25th. The Aries New Moon on the 15th is a great time to set goals when it comes to gaining new information, be it through study or conversation. The best approach is an enthusiastic, bold one, but remembering not to lash out on others if you feel restricted.
Saturn is going retrograde on the 17th and Pluto on the 22nd, both in your 12th house of solitude, compassion and consciousness. Until September, you might feel isolated from the world, as if you’re alone with your inner ghosts. You might have difficulty with your spiritual practice, maybe you see it as a chore or don’t have the patience to go through with it. This period advises you to re-think and re-organize the way you approach spirituality and solitude. It might not be the easiest time for you and you might spend more time alone than you’d like, but the purpose is to become more responsible with your spiritual practice and to learn the importance of healthy solitude, avoiding escapism. Expect some intense times on the 2nd and 26th, this is when you’re supported to increase your inner focus and find self-discipline.
The Scorpio Full Moon on the 29th brings to fruition the efforts that you’ve made in your career since last November. You can look back and see how your actions have brought you where you are on the social ladder right now. With Jupiter retrograde in the same house with the Moon, you’ve still got some things to work out about your calling! As the 4th and 5th houses are also active, this month is good for finding security in yourself or within your family, as well as for creativity and romance.
Love: after 15, when Mercury, ruler of your house of romance, goes direct; 29
Career: 14, 24
Don’t Make Any Decisions:
Mercury Retro: 1-15
Watch, Wait, Access, Act:
New Moon: 4/15
Full Moon: 4/29
Are you still recovering after last month’s Full Moon avalanche? Well, there were just two of them, but it was probably enough to mark March as an intense month! April brings a fresh start in our lives. The Astrological New Year started at the Equinox is inaugurated by Aries and continues with the ingress of Sun in Taurus on the 19th this month. This date marks a transition from child-like enthusiasm and lust for life to a steadier, more practical approach, where spring has bloomed with a bang and is now slowing down to nurture and to maintain her progress.
Mercury’s had enough of his backwards movement across the sky and is turning direct on the 15th, so no more mix-ups and miscommunications for now, but this has only been child’s play compared with Saturn and Pluto’s retrogradations in Capricorn, starting with the 17th, respectively with the 22nd. These are two of the heaviest forces in our charts, so until September, when they station direct again, things will surely get serious! We’re more likely to see our responsibilities and the structures that we’ve build until now as weighting us down, so it’s a great time to slow down, simplify and restructure. It’s essential now to look inwards for our personal power and for our ability to transform ourselves, reflecting on how we can use inner alchemy to strengthen our will.
However, outer circumstances might not always be in our favour: we can get muddled up by delays or obstacles and feel like we’re not moving forward as we’d wish. Don’t despair if you need to take extra time for your responsibilities or if anxiety wants to bring you down sometimes. Everything in the Universe works through cycles and this April-September period is a test to our diligence, strength and willpower. We usually want to dart forward and get it all done, but now it’s best to have patience and to do our inner work in solitude, assessing our progress, separating what is essential from what is not and revisiting the attitude we have towards life obstacles- Capricorn style.
On a lighter note, it’s a great season when it comes to love with Venus transiting her home sign Taurus until the 24th, when steady sensuous pleasure turns into curiosity and need for stimulation with her ingress into Gemini. The harmonious aspects that she makes with Mars, Saturn and Pluto this month shout intensity, focus and transformation. The Aries New Moon on the 15th asks us to tune in into the spring spirit with enthusiasm and big plans- it’s a great time to set your intentions for this season! Later on, the Scorpio Full Moon on the 29th brings to our awareness how the efforts we’ve started last November have helped us grown into a stronger, more self-aware and more emotionally mature person, maybe not always through fun and games.
Remember these dates for April: the 2nd is a great day for mobilizing yourself and doing all that hard work that you’ve postponed until now, the 4th and 5th might bring forward some extra Mercury retro miscommunication, so it’s best to quiet your mind and speak from the heart instead and the 7th and the 11th might make it easier for you to manifest love and inner balance, with the 11th also provoking your usual patterns to be challenged and transformed. Be careful not to over-indulge yourself on the 17th and remember to keep honesty a must in your relationships- things might get really intense when it comes to love in this period! The 18th might bring a vibe of strangeness and unpredictability, which you roll with best by embracing change and the possible craziness that comes with it. On the 25th, you might re-visit some communication issues that you encountered on the 5th this month, while the 26th offers you almost super-human resources to work intensely and passionately. Finally, on the 29th, things might seem just right with the world, even with the possible setbacks you’ve experienced lately.
How will this super-intense April influence you? Read below to find out! Remember to first check your Ascendant sign if you know it, then take a look at your Sun sign as well.
