Horoscopes for the month of April 2017

*Mercury will be retrograde from April 9th through the end of the month, so it would be wise to address what comes up as it does.*

Aries (Spring Equinox-approx. April 21st): Happy birthday Aries! This is your month, so take time to enjoy it! The first couple of weeks of the month may be particularly eventful, full of the unexpected especially when it comes to emotions, so it would be wise to stay open and flexible. As the month continues, you may find things quiet down in some ways, but in the day to day life you may find a lot of adjustments are necessary, so it would be wise to remember making the choice that is the most morally correct. Day to day habits may be wise to reassess, as there are many daily cycles that are coming to a close. This may especially be true when it comes to your money and how you handle your resources.

Taurus (Approx. April 21st to approx. May 21st): Communication, especially in the work place, may be the highlight of the first two weeks of the month, and a lot of this may have to do with adjustments in communication that can yield positive results if you take the initiative. You may find that emotionally things are going along nicely, and that the love life may be especially active. The second half of the month The second half of the month you may find starts off with emotions that are out of sorts, and that there is a higher than average potential for accidents, so it would be wise to be extra cautious until the last week.

Gemini (Approx. May 21st to Summer Solstice): Things may be going very, very well at the beginning of the month except for possible emotional challenges, and therein lies the rub. Emotions may be running too high, and if you’re not careful, they may dictate your actions more than you may be comfortable with. As the month rolls on, you may find those emotions take center stage, but your problem solving techniques may be sharper than normal, so while taxing, you may find you are in the prime spot to heal long standing emotional wounds when they come up. This period of the month may be the perfect time to reassess where you’re at in life, and what changes are appropriate.

Cancer (Summer Solstice to approx. July 21st): While others may be experiencing benefits and good things rolling their way, you may find that this is one of the most if not the most intense time of the year. As April arrives, you may find you are under a lot of pressure, specifically the pressure to change as part of the current transformation that has been happening for quite some time. Overall you may find it wise to play things conservative, safe, and mature for the first two weeks. When the Sun changes signs though, you may feel a lot of the tension in the air lessen, and that things roll along a lot smoother, especially when it comes to the day to day life and the use of your resources.

Leo (Approx. July 21st to approx. August 21st): The situation you may find yourself in for the first half the month is one of foundation building, especially if you enter into it with a clear plan. You may things are particularly active and that you have plenty of energy to get things done, but this may also work against you if it makes you too scattered or short tempered, so it would be wise to put your extra energy to good use. As the month moves on, you may find a lot of this forward motion may build to irritation with the day to day life, and that there may be challenges and growth opportunities when it comes to your money, resources, and how you handle them.

Virgo (Approx. August 21st to Autumnal Equinox): Situations from out of the blue may come up to be addressed, which may impact your ability to focus on the here and now, so it would be wise to keep things loose and flexible. If you continue to focus on the practical though, you may find you can make a lot of long term progress in the work place and career. However, your emotions may be clouding your judgment, so it would be wise to detach as much as possible. When the second half of the month rolls around, you may find things quiet down, but also that it brings a lot of opportunities to your door for financial and workplace growth.

Libra (Autumnal Equinox to approx. October 21st): While tension may be in the air regarding money, you may find that otherwise things are moving along at a tempo that focuses on long term growth rather than short term gratification. You may also find the transformative energies that have been in play for a while now continue, but at a more manageable clip. As the month moves along, you may find the tension lessens dramatically, and that you can sense something positive coming on the horizon, which is true. You may also find your emotions are extra strong, but that they are also providing much needed energy to get things done.

Scorpio (Approx. October 21st to approx. November 21st): Communications in the work place may be particularly tense right now, and that the potential is there for accidents in the same arena, so it would be wise to take things carefully there. As the month rolls along, you may find that the tension continues in that same life area, but that some things are coming to a close in order to make room for new things on the horizon. Your emotions may also be agitated because of all of the attention being placed on the professional life, so it would be wise to revisit things as they come up so that new cycles can begin.

Sagittarius (Approx. November 21st to Winter Solstice): April may start off with a bang, as you may find more than enough energy to get this done, but also that there are a lot of long term plans that can be put into motion. While your emotions may be a little challenged, and you may feel a tension in the air, if you stay detached, you may find the more you throw yourself into your work, the more breaks come your way later this year. As the month moves forward, you may find that the energy levels lower, and due to this, a lot more things are brought under your control. You may also find those emotional situations come to center stage to be addressed once and for all.

Capricorn (Winter Solstice to approx. January 21st): Your long term transformation process continues during April, but as the month opens, you may find a lot of things happen quickly, which means if you snooze, you just may lose. The main focal point right now may be on the job, career, and occupation, but when moving ahead there, it would be wise to play things cautiously in general. As the month moves on, you may find the unexpected subsides, and that you can easily and successfully get back to work. However, you may also find it wise to guard against accidents and short tempers there as well. You may also find it is time to make some changes with how you handle your finances.

Aquarius (Approx. January 21st to approx. February 21st): Other than communications being challenged in your day to day life, you may find things are rolling along quite nicely as April arrives. You may find this is the perfect time to make the necessary changes for the upcoming year. Things may become more agitated as the month goes on though, and it you’re not careful, your emotions may cloud your judgment and cause irrational decisions. It would also be wise to reevaluate your financial state and to see what should be resolved.

Pisces (Approx. February 21st to Spring Equinox): While April may start off with a lot of emphasis on emotions and emotional wounds, you may also find the work place and financial picture is rolling along smoothly, and that your personal transformation is actually rolling along quietly right now. However, if you’re sensing things coming to an end, you are correct, and by the end of April you may find a lot of things have either come to a close or are coming to a close very soon. As April progresses, you may find things smooth out exceptionally, and that a lot of good things come your way, especially when it comes to love and money.
