Aries – (March 20 – April 19)
Is it stress, Aries, or just high energy? You might as well give it a name, and a place to live in your consciousness because, whatever this force is, it’s moving through your life and you can ride the wave. Stubbornness and inertia are your only foes now. Watch the stubborn trait on the 11th when Mars and Pluto gather roadside for a rumble. And inertia may plague you on the 18th; but it’s really just confusion and lack of a clear direction. If in doubt, clear you head with a long, brisk walk.
Taurus – (April 20 – May 20)
April ushers in the end of an era of service and opens the door for well deserved rewards, Taurus. Neptune has been making subtle demands on your time for several years now. And, like a frog in hot water, you have gotten used to being the one to sacrifice your own interests for those of your family or job. How about singing a new song? The back beat pulses to the feeling of truly belonging in your world, and the melody has tones of fitting in your skin. Come in, out of the rain Taurus. The sun is shining on a brand new day; you feel this most powerfully on the 6th. Enjoy.
Gemini – (May 21 – June 20)
Even the simplest nuance can have long lasting impact this month, Gemini. If you can learn to transform your mental anxiety into productivity, you gain leverage on long term goals. The secret now lies in carefully discerning between truth and illusion. Many positive changes are in store for you, but you must first accept that you want and deserve them. Build yourself up first, and then take care of others. The nice things may feel unfamiliar at first, but, believe me, you’ll get used to feeling good.
Cancer – (June 21 – July 21)
A stellium of planets in your 10th house of social foundation is undoubtedly changing the landscape of your existence. Many more surprises are in store, and they are good ones. You must only maintain an attitude of flow and be open to a change in the way your life used to be. By the 12th you arrive at a turning point; choose carefully as there is no turning back. You will know you’ve made the right decision by the Full Moon of April 17th.
Leo – (July 22 – August 22)
If ever there was a time for you to shine, it’s now, Leo. The plethora of planets in Aries highlights your 9th house of wisdom and higher mind. Overseas travel is featured, so if you have longed for a getaway for adventure or relaxation, this is the perfect time. In short, the message for April is: make it happen. Your secret power lies in your ability to plow through opposition. Anything that looks like an obstacle is but a temporary mirage. The 24th brings absolute clarity and insight to any lingering questions; the missing puzzle piece is put into its place.
Virgo – (August 23 – September 22)
You must reach out this month; going it alone is simply not an option. Shared resources in the form of knowledge, money, or even sheer energy are the keys to success. And, it doesn’t hurt to step up the attraction factor, if appropriate; the love of your life may just arrive when you least expect it. Don’t judge the book by its cover, because something very beautiful may enter your life through the most ordinary means. In short, be prepared to be amazed. Keep an open mind on the 22nd, and you just may be delighted by the 27th.
Libra – (September 23 – October 21)
You are presented with a multitude of opportunities, although some of them may feel more like demands. This is just the nature of your own sign, Libra, as well as the thrust of planetary energies. It’s time to be strong, and if you don’t feel up to the task, you can fake it till you make it. If ever there was a time to put on your big boots and step out, this is it. That worthy opponent is just an exercise in shadow boxing; take it on as an opportunity to improve your skills.
Scorpio – (October 22 – November 21)
Venus sends you love and affection this month, Scorpio! The form of love may vary, but you can count on support and divine intervention. You say farewell to some situations, but also open up to amazing new opportunities. Perhaps it’s time to pour a little bit of that love back into your own body and soul. Even the simplest things this month can become long lasting benefits – if you allow them to. Move out of your shell and into your body. Count your blessings, and dance.
Sagittarius – (November 22– December 20)
The multitude of planets in your fellow fire sign of Aries is most likely leaving you ready to just bounce off the wall, Sag. With these planets highlighting your 5th house of romance and pleasure, you are a candidate for having ‘too much fun.’ You are extra creative now, and this month can also foster your genius. It takes extra understanding to use this time to your advantage, but keep your eye on the prize. You are ready for dynamic action after the truth is revealed on the 18th.
Capricorn – (December 21 – January 19)
Never before has so much been available to you, yet the price been so high. Yours is a sign of step by step progress, and this is the way to proceed through that daunting minefield of tasks. Each one is important; yet success of the big picture is what you must aim to influence. You will be tested on your core values this month. The Universe asks where your loyalties lie, and with whom. Think carefully, as your answers have lasting impact.
Aquarius – (January 20 – February 17)
With so much information coming your way, you may feel like slipping into overload; take it one step at a time. This month can be a huge stress, or a time of great clarity. You are absolutely forced to make decisions, so prepare yourself with pen and paper. Buy time on the 11th if possible; there is much pressure, but you have all necessary facts by the 14th. Something unexpected and good comes you way on the 22nd; be ready to make a quick decision, and don’t look back.
Pisces – (February 18 – March 19)
April is your month to regroup, reevaluate, and rejoin that missing part of yourself that has been shocked by recent events. Many forces are pushing you now to march forward yet you feel the need for a strategic retreat. With Mercury retrograde until the 23rd, you can have it both ways for a while. Although there are endless demands on your time and resources, you must make your sanity a priority. This is the true lesson, and everything else is icing on the cake.
