What the stars have in store for you.
Aries MAR 20 – APR 19
Disruptive events have complicated decision-making. Tempting as it is to battle to stick with what you’ve envisioned, don’t bother. Judging by the coming month’s planetary activity, even the simplest of plans must yield to exciting breakthroughs.
Taurus APR 20 – MAY 20
With your ruler Venus now accenting who and what you most enjoy in life, it’s time for a break. This won’t just restore your spirits, it will remind you why certain alliances and activities are vital and, perhaps, worth battling for.
Gemini MAY 21 – JUN 20
You’re surprised by how much you’ve managed to organise. Yet progress has come to a halt. Don’t worry. The dramatic events of April will be favourable. Meanwhile, spend time with those you care about and who inspire you. It’ll do wonders for you.
Cancer JUN 21 – JUL 21
It’s time to speak frankly. While this could lead to clashes, these will raise questions about your own priorities and clear the air. Later on, aim to make plans flexible enough to ride out late April’s two eclipses.
Leo JUL 22 – AUG 22
Clashes right now are about exploring issues in which everybody, including you, has their facts wrong. This becomes all the more significant in April’s second half, which brings life-changing events your way.
Virgo AUG 23 – SEP 22
While usually you like to focus on the practical side of plans first, you’ve been unable to do so. With the current planetary focus on time, money and even the value of your ideas, concentrate on whether these still suit you or need a rethink.
Libra SEP 23 – OCT 22
The Libra-eclipsed Full Moon on the 15th, brings existing issues to a head and triggers changes in your life and world. Focus on what must go and, in the process, clear the way for the thrilling developments that are yet to come.
Scorpio OCT 23 – NOV 21
Either somebody is determined to rearrange your daily routine or events are forcing you to rethink elements of your lifestyle or your way of working. Getting others’ advice isn’t just wise, their support will highlight the potential in unsettling developments.
Sagittarius NOV 22 – DEC 20
There are many kinds of passions – for pursuits, for others and to resolve persistent issues. The odds are good you’re facing a mix of these. Try to remember the feelings of others may be as intense. Their perspective differs from yours. But they still care. A lot.
Capricorn DEC 21 – JAN 19
As mid-April’s eclipsed Full Moon accents your way of life, developments could either accelerate known ideas or introduce something very new. Just plunge in. For now, experience is your best teacher.
Aquarius JAN 20 – FEB 17
Feelings are running high, mostly because everybody is on edge about changes that are both sudden and worrying. In time, you’ll see these as breakthroughs, but for now, avoid all but the simplest of discussions.
Pisces FEB 18 – MAR 19
You’re being forced to stand your ground. Acknowledge certain individuals simply aren’t conscious of the impact of their actions. Waste no time wondering why. Simply tell those who’ve been thoughtless what they need to do.
