Month of April

Aries

Whether you are a late March or an April born Aries, until the Sun leaves on 20th April, this is your birthday month and with it, a chance for a fresh start, a reset and to embrace the journey that this year will take you on. This year you have had an early start, having more time to explore your options and you have a secret weapon that is giving you an advantage from the start. That secret weapon is the North Node, which since its return to Aries last July has been providing an innate sense of direction.

While the North Node has been here for nearly eight months, it has been 18 years since you last moved into a new solar year with its guiding light from the start. Having the North Node here will also turn a New Moon into a total solar eclipse, when the Moon returns for its only visit to Aries during your birthday month from 7th April to 9th April. This brings the potential for major new beginnings just as Mercury, in retrograde motion here from 2nd April to 26th April is holding the doors open to the past.

It was Mercury's return earlier last month that gave you a head start, with a chance to get your head in the game weeks before the Sun's return, while Mars' return in early May will extend things out the other side. It is when Venus moves through from 5th April to 29th April that she will be focused on giving your heart a voice. In a year when the lunar nodes are policing a balance between your personal and relationship needs, having Venus spend the majority of the month in Aries will help with that.

Your birthday month will end when the Sun leaves Aries on 20th April, with his return to your income sector coming just six days before Mars is due to move into his final month in your income sector and of his 12 month quest for income growth and expansion. They will be joined the Venus, who will return wearing her planet of money hat on 29th April. Fortunately, there is enough professional support to back this up and especially from planets on the job and career fronts that are keeping a low profile but provide a steady backbone.

Taurus

Because the Sun will always return to Taurus to begin your birthday month and new solar year on 20th April, but until then will spend the first three weeks of April in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart, this is always a month where at some point the lines between the past, present and future will overlap. However, not to the degree that it does this year. It was Jupiter's return to Taurus in May 2023 that brought you to the start of a new 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion, but it is only now, as he moves into his last full month here that major new doors are opening.

Due to leave later next month, Jupiter is helping to open new pathways and expand opportunities across all aspects of your life. Jupiter is also growing closer to an alignment with Uranus, who has been in Taurus since 2019, with their one and only alignment peaking from 18th April to 22nd April. Jupiter is the planet of luck and expansion and Uranus is the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected and together this once in a lifetime event speaks to endless possibilities.

As luck should have it, it is just as Jupiter and Uranus are aligned that the Sun will return to Taurus on 20th April to begin your birthday month and new solar year, getting things off to an auspicious start. Yet until then, the month long wind down of your old solar year not only has you looking to the past, but moving through a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart Venus will be taking your heart on a nostalgic trip down memory lane from 5th April to 29th April. At the same time, Mercury will not only spend the whole month there but from 2nd April to 26th April he will be in retrograde motion, shifting even more of your mental focus onto the past.

Helping to keep you anchored in the present will be Mars, who will spend the whole of April in your sector of friendship, teamwork and networking. Mars will keep you connected while also helping you to get the most out of a Full Moon in your relationship sector on 24th April.

Gemini

There is a little bit of everything this month, making work/life balance a priority from the start. Thanks to Mars' return to your career sector towards the end of last month, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos will spend the whole of April here, keeping the momentum of previous months going while adding more fuel to the mix. It was three days after the Sun left on the March equinox that Mars returned and just as things should have been easing back, this has fired things up again.

Until she leaves on 5th April Venus will be working to give your heart a voice and to leave you with something that Mars can continue to fight for. Some of the most important days of the month professionally will be when the Moon moves through your career sector from 5th April to 7th April and again when it not only returns to your work sector from 24th April to 26th April but as a Full Moon. Meanwhile, when Venus leaves, she will join a growing groundswell of planets in your friendship sector.

Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of April in your friendship sector, the solar spotlight is always on your social life, friendships, teamwork and networking at this time of year. For Venus, who is here from 5th April to 29th April, this is a social and serendipitous part of your chart and when, by using the laws of attraction and synchronicity, she will make it easier to find yourself in the right place at the right time. Mercury, the planet of communication will spend the whole month here, while in retrograde motion from 2nd April to 26th April he will be holding the doors open to the past.

The Sun is only here until 20th April, when he will not only return to a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart to begin the month long wind down of your old solar year but will join Jupiter who is doing the same, except winding down a 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion ahead of his return to Gemini next month.

Cancer

Where an eclipsing Full Moon towards the end of March may have put your work/life balance to the test, there is a chance this month to benefit from that. Indeed, having the right work/life balance is the way month to enjoy all the benefits that the month holds and if you want to have it all. Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of April in your career sector, the solar spotlight is always on your professional game or on anything that you can channel your competitive spirit into at this time of year.

With Mercury spending the whole month here, Venus moving through from 5th April to 29th April and a total solar eclipse when the Moon moves through from 7th April to 9th April, this is an important month professionally. However, this is also a stepping stone, with Mars' return in the early hours of next month set to make May and June the pinnacle months of this professional year. Yet until then, Mars is spending the whole of April in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery, where just as things are on the rise professionally, he will be fuelling a passion for adventure and a hunger for life's richer experiences.

Until she leaves and joins the Sun in your career sector on 5th April, Venus will start the month fuelling a desire for adventure as she works to leave Mars with something that he can keep fighting for. Helping to put even more focus on the playful, creative and adventurous side of life's fence will be the Moon's return to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart from 24th April to 26th April as a Full Moon. Meanwhile, spending his first full month on his own in your financial sector after Mars left towards the end of last month, Pluto is keeping the focus on money matters but with less urgency.

Where Mars had spent six weeks firing up your financial passions and fighting spirit in an effort to see you take your financial power back Pluto, the planet of change and transformation is after a slower but more long term approach.

Leo

Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of April in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery, but will always end the month in your career sector, there is an awareness at this time of year of a need for balance. Venus and Mercury travel with the Sun, but not to the same strict timetable, so will often return a few days or weeks ahead or behind when the solar spotlight shifts from one side of life's fence to the other. At the moment, the Sun is travelling ahead of Mercury and Venus, so when he leaves on 20th April and returns to your career sector, he will leave them behind in an adventurous part of your chart.

However, there will be a need to make work/life balance a priority from the start, for while the annual shift from the adventurous to the professional side of life's fence won't happen until later in the month Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion has reached his last full month in your career sector and of a 12 month quest for professional growth and expansion. Jupiter is not only gathering speed and momentum, but from 18th April to 22nd April will catch up and align with Uranus, the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected who has been here since 2019. It has been eight decades since the planets of luck and synchronicity have aligned in your career sector and with the Sun returning on 20th April, it will be right in the middle of some of the most auspicious days here in eight decades.

Yet with Venus not leaving an adventurous part of your chart until 29th April, Mercury here all month and Mars returning in the early hours of May, there will still be a need for balance. Meanwhile, Mars will spend the whole of April in your financial sector, with the warrior planet of the cosmos making the most of his first chance in two years to fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit.

Virgo

The Sun and therefore the faster planets that travel with him are moving through the same part of the sky where the outer planets are located and this is making for some familiar but also major themes this month. One of those themes is on the relationship front, where while the Sun left on the March equinox, you will begin the month with Venus and Mars still here. As was the case when the Sun and Mercury moved through over recent months, it was to find Saturn here for the first time in three decades, putting a major focus on your relationships.

Venus will leave on 5th April but Mars, making his first visit in two years will spend the whole of April here. Venus' aim before leaving, will be to give your heart a voice and to give Mars, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos something to keep fighting for. This will see Venus take off her planet of love hat and don her planet of money hat as she joins the Sun in your financial sector.

While the solar spotlight is always on your financial situation and money matters at this time of year, for the first time in 18 years the North Node is also here, giving you a sense of financial direction while turning an ordinary New Moon into a total solar eclipse. This will happen when the Moon moves through from 7th April to 9th April. This will be an opportunity for major new beginnings, though with Mercury in retrograde motion here from 2nd April to 26th April, at a time when his smart head for money will come with a lot of hindsight.

Meanwhile, when the Sun leaves and returns to your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery on 20th April, it will be to put the spotlight on yet another major theme this month. It is six days later and three days before Venus joins them on 29th April, that Jupiter will move into his final month in this adventurous part of your chart. With Jupiter returning to your career sector next month to begin your biggest year for professional growth and expansion in over a decade, there will be a push to make his remaining weeks in an adventurous part of your chart count.

Libra

While this is a month where there are some major themes and especially on the job, relationship and financial fronts, these are both familiar for this time of year but also a lot more empowered. While the Sun will always leave your work sector on the March equinox, you will often move into April with at least Venus or Mercury still here, tying up loose ends before things shift back to a more long term mode. This year you not only move into April with Venus still here but with Mars having returned for the first time in two years late last month.

While Venus will leave on 5th April, with Mars here for the rest of the month her final days are all about giving the warrior planet of the cosmos something that he can keep fighting for. It is then that Venus will join the Sun and Mercury, the planet of communication in your relationship sector. Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of April in your relationship sector, the solar spotlight is always on your relationships at this time of year.

However, with the North Node here and the South Node in your relationship sector, there has been a policing of a balance between your personal and relationship needs since they returned last July. It was having them here that turned a Full Moon in Libra last month into a lunar eclipse and a New Moon this month into a total solar eclipse, each time putting a balance between your personal and relationship needs to the test. The Moon will move through to create that eclipsing New Moon from 7th April to 9th April, returning just two days after Venus, the planet of love's return on 5th April and when, after his retrograde turn on 2nd April, Mercury is on hand to not only give your emotional responses and relationships a voice but the past and unsaid words as well.

The Sun will leave on 20th April and Venus on 29th April, but Mercury will stay on while Mars will return in the early hours of May to keep the focus on your relationships. This will see the Sun and Venus join Jupiter in your financial sector, just as he will be moving into the final weeks of his 12 month quest for financial growth and expansion.

Scorpio

While the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of April in your busy work sector and even though it will always have left a playful and creative part of your chart on the March equinox, there is often an overlapping of the two. While Venus and Mercury will travel with the Sun, not to the same tight timetable and therefore, it is not unusual to have one or even both still in a playful part of your chart as the Sun is taking you into what can be some of the busiest months of the year. This year that overlapping will cover the whole month, making it important to make a balance between work and play a priority from the start.

It was three days after the Sun left a playful and creative part of your chart and while Venus was still there that Mars returned for his first visit in two years. This means that with Mars still in his early days here, even when Venus leaves and joins the Sun in your busy work sector on 5th April, he will not only stay on but will spend the whole month here. While Mars will leave in the early hours of May and this will make May and June the busiest months of the year, the warrior planet of the cosmos will spend the whole of this month fighting to ensure life doesn't become all work and no play.

This is dialling back the urgency on the job front or whatever it is that keeps you busy, but dialling things back even further is having Mercury in retrograde motion in your work sector from 2nd April to 26th April. This will ensure that even though Mercury will normally race through in 14 to 15 days, he will still be here, helping you to keep your head in the game and your feet on the ground when Mars returns next month. While the Sun will leave on 20th April, until leaving on 29th April Venus will continue to give your heart a voice and work to attract opportunities.

It is then that she will follow the Sun into your relationship sector, just as Jupiter's final weeks here will already be putting the focus on your relationships.

Sagittarius

Because the Sun will always start the month in a playful and creative part of your chart but end the month in your busy work sector, there is always going to be an overlapping of the two. Not because the Sun can't decide which side of the fence it will be on, but because the Sun is rarely on its own. For the Sun, when it leaves a playful and creative part of your chart and returns to your busy work sector on 20th April this will be a hard shift from one to the other.

One minute the solar spotlight will be on the playful side of life's fence and the next it will be on the busy side, as it does at the same time each year. However, with Jupiter not only in his last full month in your work sector but heading towards his first alignment with Uranus here in eight decades from 18th April to 22nd April, life is already likely to be busy. As Jupiter is the planet of luck and expansion and Uranus is the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected, this month could also bring some surprise developments, as a 12 month quest for job growth and expansion reaches its peak.

Supporting this are planets that are going to make the whole of April a good month across the income, work and career fronts. Yet at the same time, you not only have the Sun in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart until 20th April, but Venus will be here from 5th April to 29th April, Mercury will be here all month and Mars will return in the early hours of May. The Sun might shift the solar spotlight from the playful to the busy side of life's fence on 20th April, but both sides are active and will remain active all month.

With Mars also spending the whole of April in your home and family sector, this makes having the right work/life balance and the right balance between work and play a priority from the start. Especially if you want to have it all, in a month that wants to offer it all.

Capricorn

Starting the month with Venus and Mars in your communication sector is not only getting things off to a good start when it comes to all aspects of communication, but it will stay that way. By the time Mars returned towards the end of last month the Sun and Mercury, the planet of communication had already moved through and Venus was still here, with her mission to give your heart a voice ending when she leaves on 5th April. However, by then Mars, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos will just be getting warmed up and not leaving until the early hours of May, his war on communication barriers will continue all month.

There isn't an area of your life that won't benefit from this. Meanwhile, this will see Venus join the Sun and Mercury in your home and family sector, adding to the focus that is always on things close to home at this time of year. Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of April here, the solar spotlight is always on home, family and/or property matters at this time of year.

During her time here from 5th April to 29th April, Venus will make home where your heart is while Mercury, the planet of communication will not only spend the whole month here but will be in retrograde motion from 2nd April to 26th April. As well as making it easier to give the past and unsaid words a voice, this will be a chance to revise choices, decisions and plans. Meanwhile, even before the Sun returns to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on 20th April and Venus on 29th April, with Jupiter in his last full month here, this is an area of your chart that is becoming a lot more empowered.

Knowing that when he leaves next month, he will return to your busy work sector to begin your biggest year for job growth and expansion in over a decade, Jupiter will be doing his best to ensure life doesn't become all work and no play too soon. As well as the Sun and Venus end the month here and therefore helping with that, there are other factors keeping the focus on the playful, creative and adventurous side of life's fence this month.

Aquarius

If Mars has his way, April will be one of the most lucrative months of the year, but it is not just about the money. The Sun will always leave your income sector on the March equinox, but not before spending a month shining the solar spotlight on your income situation, matters and options. By the time Mars returned three days later, the Sun and Mercury had both moved through but Venus, the planet of money was still here.

These can be the most potentially lucrative weeks of any year, but Mars' return has raised the bar, with the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos giving you the drive to fight for what you deserve. This not only includes when it comes to the money but across all the currencies in your life. Mars won't be on his own when Venus leaves on 5th April, for joining up with Saturn here for the first time in three decades, this is a coming together of Mars' warrior spirit and Saturn's resolve to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes.

While there is no planetary activity in either of your two professional houses, the Moon's return to your work sector from 14th April to 16th April and to your career sector from 24th April to 26th April as a Full Moon will be enough to support what could be one of the most lucrative and rewarding months of 2024. Meanwhile, when Venus leaves it will be to join the Sun and Mercury, the planet of communication in your communication sector. While the Sun is only here until 20th April, Venus will spend from 5th April to 29th April working to give your heart and your relationships a voice, while Mercury is here for the whole month.

However, in retrograde motion from 2nd April to 26th April, this will give Mercury a chance to focus more on giving the past and unsaid words a voice. Balancing this out will be the Moon's return from 7th April to 9th April as an eclipsing New Moon, something that is all about new beginnings. Meanwhile, the Sun and Venus will both end the month in your home and family sector, where Jupiter is creating an opportunity for growth and expansion.

Pisces

While your birthday month ended on the March equinox, as it does each year, in terms of exploring your options and getting a sense of what you want from the coming year, you are just getting started. By the time the Sun left Pisces last month, Mercury had already moved through, giving you at least an intellectual take on the coming year and what you might expect. However, with Venus having just returned she was just starting to give your heart a voice, something that will continue until she leaves on 5th April.

This should be the point where things dial back and it becomes more about the journey. Instead, it was three days after the Sun left and after your birthday month ended that Mars returned for his first visit to Pisces in two years. As the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos, Mars has not only returned to fuel your passions, drive, warrior and competitive spirit but to find something to channel this into.

This year settling for less is not an option and especially as like the Sun and the other planets before him, Mars is teaming up with Saturn for the first time in Pisces in three decades, something that is giving you the power to move mountains if you have to. Mars is here for the whole of April, giving you time to explore your options with the kind of bravery that only he can give you. Meanwhile, because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of April in your income sector, the solar spotlight is always on your income situation, matters and options at this time of year.

However, it is when Venus returns on 5th April that as the planet of money, this will kick off some of the most lucrative weeks of the year. However, while Venus is here until 29th April, it is Mars' return in the early hours of next month that will make May and June the most lucrative months of 2024. A retrograde turn from 2nd April to 26th April will keep Mercury here all month while on 20th April, the Sun will leave and shift the solar spotlight onto your communications, with Venus returning to your communication sector on 29th April to give your heart and your relationships a voice.
