Monthly Horoscopes for April 2017
Aries 21 March - 20 April
Although the Sun and Venus begin this month in your zodiac sign, Venus's retrograde continues apace, and she rewinds into the sign of Pisces on the 3rd. If there have been any concerns about what you want from your relationships, you may want to use this chance to further reflect. With Mercury going into retrograde on the 9th, it may not be until the 29th that your options clarify.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
A plan that's important to you may require a degree of extra patience, especially from the 6th. Then anything to do with shared resources, finance or business, can require more vigilance. One friendship could also prove less reliable from the 3rd through to the 15th. You may feel highly restless mid month, but new energy and drive emerge from the 20th as the Sun enters Taurus.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
The standout moment for you this month Gemini occurs on the 21st when Mars enters your sign for a six week occupation. This is really going to fire you up, but there's plenty to go for and the rest of this month too, especially with the Sun emphasizing co-operation. The 11th and the 17th could however see you have a surprise change of mind and head in a new and exciting direction.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
The Quarter Moon on the 3rd in your zodiac sign can see you trying to balance your personal priorities with your wider ambitions or the expectations of others. If you have booked a holiday or some kind of cultural event, there is a possibility it could be rescheduled through to the 15th. Work too can be changeable this month, but try to embrace diplomacy at all times Cancer.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
Your desire to open up your world continues to be strong as April begins. However, an issue can come into the open from the 3rd, one which you would normally shrug off but may find yourself reacting more sensitively to. Choose your words carefully on the back of the Full Moon on the 11th, yet new ideas you have can gain traction then and attract a wider audience as April ends.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
Your ruler is going to start to retrograde from the 9th, firstly in your sister earth sign of Taurus, and then in Aries. Care will be needed around business, savings, property and pension arrangements, and especially any of those which are shared with someone close. You're going to show a lot more confidence however from the 21st, which can see you head in a new direction.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
This is a month of retrogrades, when planets appear to twist backwards from our position on the earth, and one of these is Venus, your ruler. It's going to be essential therefore, to work hard at keeping the lines of communication flowing, and especially with the full Moon in your sign on the 11th. But this can also be an opportunity to "re-launch yourself" around all sorts of interactions with others.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
The month begins with the Sun in the most practical part of your horoscope. However, with Mercury and Mars occupying your sector of relationships, it could be professional ties and colleagues at work who occupy your thinking as much as more socially. Ensuring your finances are well nailed down is also going to be necessary, with the onset of the annual Saturn retrograde.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
The Sun and Venus occupy the most playful parts of your situation for much of the month, and are encouraging you to demonstrate to people your flair and full range of talents. With Mercury and Mars in a more precise zone, coupling and attention to detail to this can be a winning formula. But to really succeed you may have to prioritise on what's truly essential, Sagittarius.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
Any changes that you're considering on the home front may go through a series of fluid alterations. Although on one level this could prove a little bit frustrating, at another it's just encouraging you to stay open about what the exact outcome will be. However, if you are unsettled, all this can come to the fore between the 11th and the 17th. The last ten days can be more outgoing.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
There could be an increase in dialogue with close family members this month Aquarius, and perhaps even the chance for some kind of gathering or celebration. Try to pace yourself about what you want to achieve from the 3rd, as trying to cram in too much could prove counter-productive. Solo? You may see someone you already know in a more alluring light as the month goes on.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
Venus returns to your sign on the 3rd, and so can one admirer's attention towards you. In fact Pisces, there could be more than one which can be very flattering. However, by the 15th, you can feel compelled to make a decision. Your words can sparkle in the last ten days of the month, and delightfully you could receive a financial boost on the 29th perhaps linked to your family or home.
