Aries - April 2019
Happy Birthday, Aries! You have been chosen to bask in the Sun’s glorious majesty for the first three weeks of April, and in this time your plans for what you want to achieve between now and your next birthday are sure to take off. You will be thinking big and planning big, and there is absolutely nothing standing in the way of you achieving those ambitions! With the Sun also connecting to generous Jupiter between the 9th and 19th, decisions to travel, learn something new or enhance your spiritual awareness will also be prominent. The new Moon of the 5th also shines here, and is a fabulous time for dieting, altering your personal appearance in some way or making important life style changes to ensure a happier future. Just watch for the Sun’s square the with the Moon’s nodes during the period of the 7th to 15th, causing frustration around career plans, as someone in your work place seems intent on preventing you getting ahead.
Venus spends the days up to the 20th of April in your house of secrets, a time when you probably won’t feel overly confident expressing emotions to others. This could be a month of clandestine romances and hidden feelings, hence there will be some possible despondency or hesitancy around matters of love. Venus and Neptune create a fabulous conjunction here between the 6th and 14th, which is excellent for psychic activities. This is also a highly imaginative concoction of energies, productive for creative writing and artistic ventures. These ideas are likely to remain private, however, until the last ten days of the month when Venus has left this area of your solar chart. Venus and Saturn join hands from the 11th to 18th, a week for engaging in highly confidential projects or research in your work place. You may be trusted with classified information here, so prepare yourself!
Your communication sector will receive a much needed vitality uplift from Mars in April, and his naturally assertive and competitive nature will send you directly into some controversial and potentially confrontational debates, about the subjects which are important to you. Political, philosophical and spiritual topics will greatly arouse your interest, and you will feel passionate about defending your views. Standing up for those who cannot fight their own corner is also a feature of this transit, hence you may find yourself heavily involved in humanitarian or charitable causes, where vulnerable others need support to fight for their rights. Mars and Mercury form a beneficial connection here after the 26th and into early May, an excellent time for public speaking, persuasive writing and holding important meetings in which assertiveness and honesty are required. Your reflexes will be sharp and you will be very perceptive during these days; try not to be too impatient with those who are not so quick-witted!
The full Moon illuminates your relationship sector on the 19th, for the second month in a row. There is more work to do here on those partnership problems which seemed to reach crisis point in mid-March, but perhaps were not really dealt with as you hoped. These issues haven’t gone away, and this time around you absolutely must make that decision about whether you want to continue on your current path, and whether your love life is headed in a direction you are happy about. If you have a birthday between the 10th and 17th of April, Pluto will square your natal Sun throughout the month, forcing some deeply buried and very intense emotions up to the surface. You could find these important relationship decisions especially draining. Enjoy your month!
