Astrology predictions written and graciously shared with us by Susan Reynolds of exploreastrology.com

Aries

Aries

Aries

Happy Birthday Aries! With Venus so close to your Sun, the Ram is in the mood for love. Usually, you are full of fire and ready to rumble but Venus has a softening effect and you want everyone to get along. There can be some romantic nights and time spent with friends. Venus sometimes has us looking in the mirror more often than usual and you are ready to spend money to look good. This can translate into spa appointments and new hairdo’s and whatever it is that has you feeling confident in your ability to attract a partner. For those already in a romantic relationship its time to make some fun plans for a week-end away. Aries is pretty generous and you can spend big bucks on the one you love or the one you want to attract.

The Sun in Aries is going to give you a glow that others notice. It is not the time to hide under a bushel. You get to have things your way and can feel like king of the hill. Just don’t go overboard or those around you will push back. By the 20th the Sun has moved into Taurus and your house of income. It looks like there can be some extra money coming your way. Maybe you get a nice break on your taxes. Just watch out for impulsive spending. There can be some sudden impulses to buy, buy, buy.

Taurus

Taurus

Taurus

As Jupiter and Saturn both sit at the top of your chart, you are ready to assume a new authority. This is an area of achievement and leadership. Not too shabby. In terms of career this can be big plus. Jupiter will bring in new opportunities at least the rest of the month. In May it will move on so make the most of its help now. Saturn is still there helping you to take on new responsibilities and it are ready to move forward professionally. The Full Moon on the 26th will bring in some nice new opportunities and you may see some results from all your hard work. This Full Moon may also highlight some health matters that you have been dealing with. There may be some adjustments but overall, it is good news.

For most of April Mars is still in your second house of income and prosperity. There may be a bonus at work or you get a raise of some kind. You may be ready to invest in a new computer or some other equipment needed to move forward at work. Taurus is usually pretty careful with money but your generous heart has you spending more than you thought you would. Don’t worry, Venus comes out to snuggle up next to your Sun on the 15th and there are some good times the second half of April. 

Gemini

Gemini

Almost all the planets are up in the top half of your chart. This can sometimes show up with you being seen more. Both Mercury and Neptune sit in your house of career. There are meetings and phone calls and paperwork to take care of. If you work happens to be in the Mind/Body/Spirit industry then you get a nice boost thanks to Neptune’s help. If you are asked to give a talk or stand up in front of a group, by all means say yes and go for it. With Mars sitting so close to your Sun you are ready to start new projects and use all that extra energy to work on things you put aside before. Mars will be here until the 24th so plan accordingly.

Venus and the Sun join forces in your eleventh house. This part of the chart deals with friends and group activity. Gemini usually loves people and this is no exception. A wonderful month for meeting new people, joining new clubs and reconnecting with old friends. The New Moon of the 11th helps this along. You have had enough of staying home. Now you are ready to travel so start making your plans. Take action the first half of April. On April 15th Venus moves into Taurus, followed by the Sun on the 20th. After that you are quieter and may not feel like getting out and about so much. 

 Cancer

Cancer

Cancer

Thank to the presence of Mars in your twelfth house, sweet Cancer may be struggling a bit and feeling a bit down. Although most Cancer’s won’t ask you, be extra nice and may be offer a helping hand. When Mars going into this area of quiet contemplation, we often feel more physically tired and don’t have the energy to do all we are used to doing. It’s important to carve out some quiet time for reflection and meditation. Of course, as a water sign, it can turn into depression and despair. Do NOT let yourself go down that road. This is a beautiful energy for all kinds of artistic and creative work. Seek out the beauty in all of life and you will find a new sense of connection to the Divine.

On April 24th Mars changes signs and moves into your first house of self. Suddenly you have your mojo back and you are raring to go. Venus and the Sun together in your tenth house of public life will bestow gifts upon your career. What a nice way to welcome April. If you need help or to ask someone for a favor, now is the time. Everyone loves you. Go after that client or talk to your boss about a raise. There is New Moon here as well on the 11th and you have new ideas and are ready to get things done.  

Leo

Leo

Leo

The Lion is feeling strong this month thanks to the placement of the Sun in your ninth house. This is an area of study. What is it you want to know about? Leo is ready to stretch themselves and seek new horizons. It is a good time to take a chance and seek some kind of adventure. Venus is here as well ensuring that whatever class or workshop you sign up for will benefit you greatly. It is a lovely time for a trip or a short vacation. Even if you cannot go very far, I would still pack your bags and get out of town. And if possible, I would do it before the 15th. That’s because on the 15th Venus will change signs and move into your tenth house of career. Lucky you. This is when you may be on stage taking a bow for a job well done. There can be kudos and gifts and you get the praise you deserve. The sun follows on the 20th and the last part of the month you are super focused on your career path.

Mercury and Neptune are still in your eighth money house. Mercury will only be there for the first week. After that it is off to the ninth house and Aries energy. A good time for public speaking. Maybe you decide to teach something and now is when you put the material together. Or hummm….. weren’t you going to write a book?

Virgo

Virgo

It looks like sweet Virgo is spending a lot of time looking at your budget. But in a good way. There is a nice Venus/Sun combo visiting this house and you are looking at either coming into a nice sum of money or finding some ways to increase your paycheck. Be sure to graciously accept any gifts that come your way. Virgo is better at giving and does not always accept easily. Now is the time to just say Thank-You. Mercury enters this house on the 5th and joins both Venus and the Sun already there. You may be doing all the paperwork associated with Tax Day. Check all receipts.

Both Jupiter and Saturn are still in your sixth house of health, at least until next month when Jupiter makes its move. You have been thinking about what you need to do to take care of your health and well-being. Congrats, it is working and you are seeing progress. Mars, at the top of your chart has been helping as well. Mars will be here until the 24th of the month, so make the most of this help. You are tired of waiting and are ready to act. Take charge and get the job done!

Libra

Libra

Libra

Libra is in their happy place with Venus and the Sun in your area of love, marriage and partnership. You want some romantic evenings and soft lightening. You are feeling good and in harmony with everyone. As a result, your generous spirit makes itself known and you may be giving some lavish gifts to friends and family. And you may be giving yourself a gift or two as well. After all, you want to look good and treat yourself right. And none of that comes for free. Mercury joins the mix on the 5th and all three planets together have you enjoying long talks with your special someone.

Mars changes signs on the 24th and moves into your tenth house of career. You are ready to work hard and get things done. There can be some bickering of those around you but you don’t let it bother you. You are on a drive to achieve and you are willing to put tremendous energy into making it happen. The rewards of what you are doing now will keep showing up in the months ahead. Way to go Libra!

Scorpio

Scorpio

Scorpio

Sweet Scorpio may be spending some time in the doctor’s office this month. That is because the Sun and Venus are both in your area of health and healing. This does not mean anything bad. Rather this be the time you start to see results of lowering your blood sugar or working out at the gym. It is time to feel in charge of any health issue. And at work there can be some more good news. Your boss thinks you are doing a great job and you should ask for whatever assignment you like. Mercury is here as well after the 5th and although you are busy juggling appointments, things just somehow work out.

Mars has been in your private eighth house for the last month. Scorpio is pretty private on a regular day. Add in this additional energy and you have really been doing some deep soul searching. Sometimes this can bring up money issues. You and a partner do not agree about how your stimulus money should be spent. You are really not in the mood to compromise. Some of this can be about household expenses. But on the 24th Mars leaves Gemini and moves into Cancer and your ninth house. After that you might want to readdress any financial disagreements. 

Sagittarius

Sagittarius

Sagittarius

Sagittarius is a bit all over the place right now. Too many planets doing too many different things. On one hand with Neptune and Mercury in your fourth house for the first week of April, you want to stay home and maybe do some yard work or something. But Venus and the Sun are in your fifth house of pleasure. Who wants to stay home and work? You want to be out with friends. Never mind that we are still supposed to stay home and not be in any large group. This is not a time when you feel like denying yourself. You want to do fun things and enjoy life. If you have any children or grandchildren this is a good time to spend with them. The combination of Venus and the Sun together can be very creative, so if you are involved in the arts in any way, they you get a nice bonus.

As if all that is not enough, Mars is still in your seventh house of relationships. Of course, this shows up in terms of romantic relationships most often but it is not limited to them by any means. Make sure that you and your sweetie do not get into arguments over nothing. On the 24th Mars is leaving, so wait until after the 24th to discuss anything you believe might lead to disagreement.

Capricorn

Capricorn

With Mars still in your sixth house of health and healing, sweet Capricorn is focuses on the body. This can lead to doctor’s appointments and tests. But it can also be about holistic and alternative therapies. The Goat just wants to make sure that you are doing whatever you can to stand in the best shape possible. Not only are you taking care of your own body but you may be called upon to help friends and family with their healing issues. This can be driving Mom or Dad to doctor’s appointments or helping a friend out after surgery, but sweet Cap may end up being a bit of a caregiver. Don’t worry, after the 24th Mars moves into Cancer and things calm down. As Mars then opposes your Sun, Capricorn may be feeling feisty and ready to let loose with whatever they think on a multitude of subjects.

For now, both Venus and the Sun reside in your fourth house of home and family. This gives you a lovely gift this month of all family related energies. If you and a family member have been fighting, well April is the month to make peace. You want your home to be beautiful and welcoming and so there may be some extra spending to make it so. And if you are looking to put your home on the market, April is the time to sign the paperwork, both for buying and selling.

By the end of the month, you are tired of being an adult and want to play a little. You are always so responsible that you have to remind yourself to just have fun once in a while.

Aquarius

Aquarius

Aquarius

Aquarius has been wanting to spend some time enjoying life and being creative. That is thanks to Mars visiting your fifth house of hobbies and creativity. If you have children, this is a beautiful time to spend with either children or grandchildren. It will be here until the 24th when Mars changes signs and moves into Cancer. Until then, spend some time on what gives you pleasure. This also means that you might be feeling more romantic than usual, thanks to the influence of Mars. If single, then now is the time to look at dating. And if you are married or involved, then this is the perfect time to have fun together.

With the Sun and Venus both in the same house (your third), you are more forceful about sharing your opinion on just about everything. Watch out, as this can sometimes translate into arguments with siblings. If you find yourself fighting with brothers and sisters, just pull back until the 20th. By then both Venus and the Sun will be in a new place in your chart and you can revisit whatever the discussion was about. Mercury leaves Pisces on the 5th and moves into your communication area as well. A good time to learn and study and seek new horizons?

Pisces

Pisces

Pisces

Pisces is getting a bit of a break thanks to Jupiter getting ready to make its move into Pisces and out of your twelfth house. This actually happens next month on May 14th but I think many Pisces people will be noticing it now. With Jupiter in the area of your hidden emotional life, sweet Pisces has been dealing with all kinds feelings that you either thought you had dealt with or are having to face squarely for the first time. Either way, you are not too happy about it. And it doesn’t look like you are letting people know that you may be struggling somewhat. But as Jupiter moves into your own sweet sign you start to see light at the end of this particular tunnel. You get more energy for one thing. Lately you have been tired and worn out and not felt like doing anything much. But that is beginning to change as you notice you are not the couch potato you thought. Jupiter will stay in your sign until July, so this break is for several months and gives you some breathing room.

Mars has been sitting at the bottom of your chart in the area of home and family. There may be more interaction with family members or those you consider family. Some may come to visit or you decide to get the house ready and start on a cleaning spree. It is a time to think about both buying and selling real estate. On the 24th Mars finally leaves and gives you another nice break. As it enters your fifth house of fun, Pisces is ready to come out and play. You make plans to see friends, enjoy time with your sweetheart and may even take up a new hobby!  

New Moon-Full Moon for APRIL 2021 coming soon!

New Moon

NEW MOON on APRIL 12, 2021 Our New Moon this month is special as it is right next to the Sun in Aries. As the first sign of the Zodiac, Aries is symbolic of new beginnings and so it with the New Moon. Double the fun! Aries is a fire sign and this is a strong fire Moon. We want to be doing under an Aries Moon. Usually our energy levels are high at this time and so is our enthusiasm. All those projects you have been putting off because you just didn’t feel like doing them, well now you are ready to tackle them and cross it off your to-do list.

Mars is the ruler of Aries and Mars is the planet of war. We can be more aggressive under this Moon. Now if you struggle to express yourself this can be a good thing. But it can also be carried too far and you end up telling off your boss or fighting with your co-workers. Aries is not always the best at compromise (they see it too much as losing) so you may have to talk to yourself about letting things go and not losing your temper. Even if your temper is perfectly under control, you may be witness to other people just kind of losing it as they struggle to use this energy constructively. Clients become more pushy and everyone is just a little bit more combative.
Focus on areas where you need to get a move on. Because Mars has a vibe associated with the military we may see more violence. Of course this can come out as discussions on gun control instead. One of the best parts of Aries is their desire to stand up for the underdog. They will lend others their courage. This is the sign that runs into the burning building or rushes into situations of danger in order to help someone else. I think that is a pretty strong positive way to use this beautiful Aries Moon.

FULL MOON on APRIL 27, 2021 The Full Moon this month falls in the sign of Scorpio. This is a water sign and an emotional one at that. If there is one word that perfectly describes Scorpio it is Intense. This sign does nothing half-way. They put their heart and soul into it or don’t bother at all. They radiate power. We all get a chance to use our power in transformative ways under the Full Moon in Scorpio.

This may show up especially strongly in terms of money and finance. Scorpio and Taurus are both signs associated with prosperity and abundance. They are activating each other and this gives us a chance to take control of our budget and spending. You may be asked to give money and have to take a look at if you can afford to do that. Or you decide to make some changes to your will. Scorpio is a sign that rules death and dying. Now most of us will not experience any physical deaths around us but we may think more about death and dying, that’s where changes to the will come in. We decide to buy a burial plot or suddenly start talking about ‘when I’m gone’. This can be upsetting to some, but mostly it is just using that deep, penetrating energy of Scorpio to explore a taboo topic. Scorpio loves to explore taboo subjects.
Since both Scorpio and Taurus are fixed signs, we may all be a bit more stubborn than usual. Not a good time to try and get people to change their mind about anything. But it is a good time to work hard at achieving your goals. Scorpio will give us the drive and determination to get there.
