April Monthly Horoscope for Each Sign

Astro Overview for April 2019

In addition to the five tense aspects April brings about, the heavy planets of the Zodiac, Jupiter and Saturn, turn retrograde in their domicile sign. hence, it is hardly a wonder that the middle of this year’s spring is especially dynamic and fast-paced, but also unpredictable and quite aggressive at times. But let us take a closer look at how the stars are treating us this month.

Mercury conjunct Neptune (Pisces): dream merchant

On or around April 2nd, we may feel the impact of the first important aspect of this month. More specifically, Mercury adheres to a conjunction with Neptune in the sign of Pisces. Considering that the energy of the planet of communication is altered in this sign and that the other planet is not in vain called the planet of illusions, we may end up investing too much trust in people around us and believe everything we’re told. Let’s hope we learned our lesson during Mercury’s retrograde.

Venus conjunct Neptune (Pisces); Sun (Aries) square Saturn (Capricorn) and Jupiter Rx in Sagittarius: big changes on the horizon

On April 10th, no less than three important astral configurations will perfect. Venus adheres to a conjunction with Neptune in Pisces, a sign that we are overflowing with creativity and romance, but we are subject to the risk of disappointment. The Sun in Aries forms a tense square with Saturn in Capricorn, indicating a lack of maturity in everday life. Then, Jupiter goes retrograde in Sagittarius, which indicates that our system of values, principles and beliefs requires some adjustment.

Mercury (Pisces) square Jupiter Rx (Sagittarius): torn between principles and feelings

On or around April 12th, we may feel the influence of the dissonant aspect between Mercury in Pisces and Jupiter retrograde from Sagittarius. What this square does is to make us less confident in what our senses and principle are telling us. It can be difficult to navigate the energies of this astral configuration, given that the mental and emotional compass are severely out of sync. It would be advisable to ask for objective opinions if we are faced with important events then.

Sun (Aries) square Pluto (Capricorn): shoot at a pigeon and kill a crow

On April 13th, the Sun in the sign of Aries adheres to a tense aspect with Pluto in Capricorn, which may trigger important changes in our life or threaten even more the stability of a status quo. There is nothing wrong with making changes, but if they risk affecting our career or social sphere, it might be better to leave them for another more fortunate moment. Now the time has come to shift towards other horizons, but without causing too much disruption around you.

Sun (Aries) trine Jupiter Rx (Sagittarius): setting sail toward new horizons

On or around April 14th, we feel the beneficial influence of the trine between the Sun in Aries and Jupiter retrograde in Sagittarius. After so many days full of dynamic and tense aspects, we grasp for the fresh air this astral configuration bestows upon us. Now is the perfect time to play, experiment, and discover new things, but it is important not to leave our priorities somewhere behind. They matter more than we think, so it’s important to stay as focused as possible.

Venus (Pisces) square Jupiter Rx (Sagittarius): the hermit inside whispers

The next day, the dissonant aspect between Venus from the sign of Pisces and Jupiter retrograde from Sagittarius is perfected. What this astral configuration is trying to tell us is that intuition could tell us very important things around this day. Rather than sticking to certain principles that might be wrong, especially if we have not adjusted them to our own personal beliefs, we better rely on our inner voice. It is never wrong and it is important to rely on our gut instinct sometimes.

Mercury enters the sign of Aries: full spead ahead

From April 17th onward, Mercury transits the sign of Aries, which is why we may be more communicative than lately, talk more quickly and be wittier than usual. Our mind operates like a Swiss watch, we make connections easier, and important changes are happening in our life on the whole. It is important, however, to acknowledge that this aspect may have its drawbacks, that we may be more prone to express ourselves when we should listen. It’s important to known when to speak.

Venus enters the sign of Aries: readymade love and friendship

After April 20th, Venus joins this sign, which is not good news. Since the planet of love and socializing is in its diurnal detriment in this sign, we may not necessarily be the most romantic and attentive life partners. We prefer stolen love gestures and romantic encounters over long nights in the company of the loved one. It is important to think long and hard before we enter into new relationships or begin new partnerships. We need some time to reflect on them before we act.

Sun conjunct Uranus (Taurus): new financial opportunities

On or around April 22nd, we may feel the influence of the conjunction of the Sun with Uranus, freshly returned to the sign of Taurus. What this is doing is to create good premises for those looking for opportunities to supplement their income and/or capitalize on some of their savings without losing much of the spare time they have at their disposal. The beginning of the last decade of April comes therefore with increased chances of winning more without much effort.

Mars (Gemini) square Neptune (Pisces): fake news

On or around April 27th, the tense square aspect between Mars in Gemini and Neptune in the sign of Pisces is in force, which means that not every word we hear, be it gossip, rumors or news, deserves our attention. They may be orchestrated only to divert our attention from those departments of our lives where it is supposed to go. Sometimes, it is better to trust our gut instincts than those around us. Otherwise, we might get terribly disappointed in ourselves.

Saturn retrogrades in the sign of Capricorn: forced growing-up

With Saturn retrograde in his nocturnal domicile from April 29th, we are advised to focus more on growing up. We may perceive the gaps, delays, shortcomings and grievances that it brings more vividly, but it would be desirable to use this opportunity to delve deeper into our inner universe. There we will find unpredictable mental resources to overcome whatever obstacle life may face us with. Now is the time to take a realistic look at the dicions we have made thus far.

As is evident from the paragraphs above, April is perhaps the first month of this year to remind us of the vibration of 2018 to a certain extent. More specifically, we are again put to work, and the guarantee of success is only granted to those who demonstrate increased force of character. Now is the time to stand our ground and demonstrate that we can overcome any challenge.
