Mercury moves back into the sign of Aries as it continues its retro phase, and will continue to do so before pushing forwards again and re-entering Taurus mid-May.
However, its rewind phase can offer an opportunity to revise a plan or project as by doing so we might find hidden gems that sparkle with promise. For your FREE Daily Horoscope Thursday 20th April 2017 please see below...
Horoscopes Thursday 20th April 2017
Aries 21 March - 20 April
There's a switch-over today as Mercury the planet of interaction heads back into your sign in reverse mode while the Sun eases further into sensual Taurus. The coming four weeks bring an opportunity to slow down and enjoy life by relishing each moment, which may help to relax your mind. However, as Pluto rewinds from today, a personal ambition of yours could intensify.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
You may find that you're truly in your element over the coming four weeks as the solar orb moves deeper into your sign, perhaps reaffirming your love of nature and the outdoors. Over coming days though, you may need to rework a plan or research an idea if you want to make good progress. Anything that begins as a mild interest could possibly become so much more.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
The coming weeks can be an opportunity to step back from life when possible and consider how you might make a few changes that could impact you significantly. With the Sun in a more subtle sector of your chart, you now have the option to let go of any situations or even relationships that no longer serve your best interests. Indeed, doing so could give you a new lease of life.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
As Pluto, the planet of transformation, turns retrograde today in your sector of relating, you may find that your feelings concerning a personal relationship can amp up, encouraging you to look beneath the surface. At the same time, a focus on your social sector suggests that one friend can be very supportive and prove a stabilizing and soothing influence, should you need advice.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
The coming weeks can see you ready to take stock of your present goals and ambitions and perhaps to concentrate on one or two that you're truly gripped by. Even so, you might need to go over the basics regarding any knowledge you may need if you're to accomplish all you want. And although this may seem time consuming, it could enable you to confidently stride ahead.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
With Mercury, your guide, reversing back into your sector of transformation and resources, you may be keen to look further into an issue that might not be resolved to your satisfaction. If so, it could be that certain buried feelings are preventing you from completely letting go of it. Inner calm may return if you can reflect on what these may be and do your best to embrace them.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
Memories of happy times with friends or while involved in a hobby you enjoy could send you in search of a repeat experience. Perhaps all you want is something to help you relax and unwind, especially if you're in the middle of a busy week. Calling up an old friend for a coffee and a chat may be one way to feel better Libra. But spending time on a creative project can be another.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
The coming four weeks put the emphasis on how you can improve on a relationship that has a special place in your heart. This might mean discussing any unspoken rules and addressing matters that might need to be brought out into the open. However, there is also an opportunity to link with others or another and to accomplish something together that would be trickier alone.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
Even though Venus is now pushing forwards, it's still clashing with Saturn in your sign. The difference now though is that you can begin to feel a lot more hopeful about a situation that may have seemed really difficult to resolve. As this is likely connected with a close emotional tie, it may be that those involved could be experiencing a change of heart, or will it be you, Archer?
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
With Pluto, the planet of passion, rewinding in your sign from today, you may soon find that insights into the world around you and into yourself can seem more profound. This might mean that you'll take your plans and relationships more seriously. Despite this, you could find that easy-going leisure options can help take the pressure off you and gift you with a lighter perspective.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
The Sun crosses paths with Mercury as he eases into your home zone, and the planet of interaction moves back into your sector of communication. The coming four weeks offer an opportunity to nurture yourself and enjoy a little self-care Aquarius. Even so, your mind may be on overdrive at times, which is even more reason why you might benefit from occasional down time.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
A subtle shift in your sector of socializing could ring in the changes over coming months. With Pluto the planet of intensity retracing its steps from today, you could find that certain friends or even groups can appear a little controlling. To counteract this Pisces, your horoscope suggests you may need to be very firm about what you're willing to do for them and how much of your time you really can spare.
