Capricorn - April 2018
Hey Capricorn! Intense planetary energy continues to bombard your sign in April, so that search for the meaning of life is not over! Not only does Saturn turn retrograde here on the 18th, as we mentioned in March, but we also have Pluto changing direction on the 23rd. These are two formidable heavenly bodies, and you are bound to feel a lack of direction as they both slow down to make a change. A strong urge to transform in some way will be counteracted by a sense of irritating inactivity around plans. Goats born around the 9th to 15th will feel the pressure of Pluto’s powerful presence on your natal Sun. Change at a deeply profound and personal level is coming for you, but this necessary waiting period will feel frustrating and emotional. Mars also conjuncts Lilith and Pluto here until the 24th, a passionate combination of energies pushing you to give in to your deepest desires and go your own way. You simply won’t be able to toe the line now, so don’t try!
Romantic matters will receive a helping hand from enchanting Venus after the 24th; use her charming energy to make headway with new or potential love partners. Her trine with Mars from the 13th to 23rd generates passionate energy and a desire for love and affection, and this is a wonderful time to meet someone very special whilst you’re out enjoying yourself. You do need to guard against overdoing those social activities; Venus likes a good time, and with few restrictions around her right now, she really wants to let her hair down! Take care with spending on parties, trips out to bars or restaurants and gambling of any kind, particularly between the 8th and 14th when nodal influences seep in.
The Sun lights up your domestic area for the first three weeks of the month, and having a secure base where you can relax and rejuvenate your tired spirit will be extra important to you. Your self-esteem will be closely intertwined with how successful family life is for you now, therefore you may feel an urge to spend more time with loved ones. Putting differences with your father to one side is also likely if you have been struggling to get along. The Sun and Mars square up to one another during the first week in April, which could be a turbulent period, as stubborn relatives refuse to back down on an important matter. The tension will ease after the 8th. The new Moon here on the 16th will also bring fresh air into your domestic world, as changes to your living conditions or surroundings become inevitable. Challenges from Pluto here indicate that you may struggle to let go of the past. Be strong, a fabulous new beginning awaits you.
Jupiter is retrograde in your house of friends throughout the month, a time for looking over your friendships and identifying areas where you could be happier. When Jupiter is moving backwards we tend to be more aware of parts of our life where we have been excessive or over confident, hence if you have been a little domineering or said too much in a difficult situation, this is a good time to put things right. It’s also a period for recognising those in your life with whom you have been overly generous. With Mars, Jupiter and Neptune forming a positive web of connections after the 15th, a situation may arise in your personal life where you need to call upon friends to support you. True friends will come, anyone else is not worth your time! Enjoy your April!
