Aquarius - May 2020
Hi there, Aquarius! Action and motivation are your watch words for April, as dynamic Mars spends the month in your sign! He will soon have you feeling feisty and asserting yourself with everyone you meet, as for once your own needs take priority with no exceptions. This is a fantastic time to begin a health or fitness regime, take on a new and adventurous hobby or fight the corner of yourself and others to ensure that justice is done. Mars’s conjunction with Saturn during the days up to the 11th is also positive for putting effort and dedication into renovation projects and creative ventures. Just watch for conflicts with family members between the 3rd and 17th as Uranus sticks an oar in; the atmosphere at home is likely to be an irritable one here, and arguments with or about relatives are more likely. It isn’t the best of times for signing property contracts, the air will be full of impulsive, impatient energy not conducive to making logical choices. The new Moon of the 23rd will offer you a more fitting environment for initiating changes here.
Mercury is a speedy boy this month as he makes up for lost time after his recent retrograde spell; he will be passing through three different areas of your solar chart as he flies across the heavens. During the days up to the 11th he lingers in your money sector, making this first part of the month a winner for conversations about your cash flow and finance-related paperwork. Between the 12th and 27th he will make himself known in your communication sector, a time of much thought-provoking discussion and fact gathering in pretty much every part of your life. Watch for tricky aspects with Lilith and the Moon’s nodes from the 13th to 17th, pushing you into disagreements with work colleagues. After the 28th Mercury will busy up your family life, and you can expect an increase in visitors to your home during these last days of April.
The full Moon on the 8th shines a light on your spiritual contentment, and the path to true happiness could be illuminated at this time, as you suddenly see what it is that you really want, and why the way you have been following up to now has not been right for you. This is also about taking responsibility for past choices and understanding how you came to be at this crossroads at this particular point in your life. It could therefore be an emotionally intense period of serious soul-searching, and you might feel a strong urge to escape your ordinary world and spend some time alone with your thoughts. If you are drawn to certain people now, especially those who look to have something to teach you, go with your instincts. Expand your friendship experiences by joining a new group or society with people you perhaps would not normally have a chance to meet and interact with in everyday life.
Neptune continues to exert his gentle, dreamy influence on money matters throughout the month, so although this isn’t the most practical of periods, you will at least have some marvellously creative ideas about enhancing your income. Charitable ventures and work with vulnerable groups will seem like worthwhile projects to spend your time on now, and you won’t think twice about making substantial donations to good causes or helping them to raise much-needed funds. Neptune does clash with Venus after the 20th, an aspect which persists throughout May, and could see some significant overspending on leisure activities and evenings out. Keep an eye on your cash! Have a wonderful April!
