Sagittarius - April 2018
Hello Sagittarius! Love will be a rollercoaster ride for centaurs in April, as a mixed bag of planetary influences permeates your house of love and leisure! With Mercury still retrograde here until the 15th, and making some challenging connections with Mars and Saturn in the process, external restrictions will seem to hound you when you try to relax and enjoy your time with potential partners. You may feel you simply can’t catch a break, as misunderstood intentions and arguments over petty issues also seem to discolour your love life. However, the new Moon of the 16th portends a brighter second half to the month, as new love arrives in an interesting and unexpected way. The Sun and Uranus connecting here between the 10th and 20th will also put you in the path of some unusual leisure activities. Creativity is strong and your artistic expression will be unique and impressive.
Jupiter is settling into retrograde motion in your house of secret things now, and the desire for spiritual enlightenment will become your driving force. This house is an energy suppresser, so some of the more dynamic planets don’t fare well here, but Jupiter is not fazed by his forced introspection. You will probably find you are happier to be alone now than you have been in a long time, you may even deliberately steer clear of busy others who clutter your mind with everyday problems. It’s an excellent time to learn more about spiritual or esoteric subjects or take a course of study to channel your psychic awareness. Someone could arrive in your world now who acts as a spiritual or religious guide. The full Moon on the 30th also focuses her energy on this area of your chart, and this is a time for looking deep into your soul and reconnecting with your inner motivations and desires. Helping others is often the way forward for spiritual centaurs, so get out there and do what you do best, offering support and advice to those who need you.
Venus spends the first three weeks of April in your work sector, so in general this should be a fairly harmonious period, where everyone seems to have the same goals in mind. She does lock horns with the Moon’s nodes from the 8th to 14th, therefore this might be a turbulent period in which your creative ideas are challenged. You have two choices here; the easier road will take you into defence mode as you argue facts and figures with those who doubt you, but if you’re feeling brave, let people have their say and don’t be phased by criticism. You can learn a lot from another point of view! The Sun arrives in this area on the 21st, making the last week of the month a productive and dynamic one for everyday chores; you will be happy to take charge and will probably find yourself organising the lives of everyone around you.
Neptune and Mars form a helpful sextile after the 14th and into early May; this is a very positive aspect for attending to financial matters connected with property or family members. There is a highly compassionate energy here which although not overly pragmatic, is beneficial for supporting loved ones at a financial or emotional level, which is what really counts. Chiron also leaves your domestic area on the 17th for pastures new, therefore the work you have done on healing hurts and resentments from your past is complete. You will feel ready to move forward again and make some happy and loving memories with people you care about. Have a brilliant April!
