Mars & Saturn
As April begins, action planet Mars is moving through Aquarius and the most hidden sector of your horoscope. Mars remains here until the 15th and is close to Saturn as the month begins. They make an exact conjunction on the 5th.
Saturn can be a tough planet to deal with. You may want to hide away or perhaps you need to isolate. There can be a lonely feel to this combination as it turns your attention inwards. As Mars separates from Saturn, any pressure may begin to ease or you find a solution to a personal issue.
Saturn’s the planet linked to fear and doubt. In Aquarius, it’s wise to learn new strategies to help keep fear at bay. Aquarius rules technology so ensure you use your time online well.
Reach out to others, study or learn something new. When planets are in your previous star sign and the most hidden sector of your horoscope, you often benefit from walking a spiritual path, finding your religion or reconnecting with your faith. Try not to turn Mars’ accusing nature inwards and learn to meditate or to silence your inner critic.
This month, there’s a lot to be grateful for, although at times you may feel emotionally overwhelmed with what’s going on. The big event is the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction on the 12th. Your two co-rulers, the planets linked to Pisces, coming together in your star sign for the first time since 1865.
This deserves to be called epic. Together, they are a symbol of big dreams, hope and limitless possibility. At their best, they’re connected to miracles and awakening. In Pisces, your star sign, Jupiter & Neptune represent a huge boundless flood of compassion, kindness and caring.
You could experience a spiritual awakening this month or discover an innate belief in yourself and your gifts. Tend to your imagination, feed your dreams, open your heart. Be wary that you don’t spend too much time on social media or reading the news.
As a sensitive Pisces, you often pick up on vibrations and other people’s energies. You may have an empath quality and be more vulnerable and emotional than most people. Therefore, you’re wise to keep some boundaries in place this month to care for yourself and your well-being.
There are two other planets moving through Pisces and the most personal sector of your horoscope in April. The planet of love Venus is here from the 5th onwards and is joined by action planet Mars on the 15th. Therefore, this is a month when people count. You could fall head-over-heels in love, get married or find your soul-mate.
Venus is especially strong on the 27th and the 30th when she’s next to Neptune, then Jupiter. This triggers the major Jupiter-Neptune conjunction bringing it to life. Notice who you’re with on or around these dates, notice what you want to give or receive.
This isn’t about trying to control the outcome. If you’re a typical Pisces, you’ll know that you’re more in flow with life when you learn to surrender to life as it is. Engage in lucid dreaming, find your muse, embrace your inner artist. Whatever speaks to you personally, this is the month to dive deeply head-first into Pisces’ realm.
Do so and you may discover what Love really means to you, whether you encounter the divine or experience an awakening that takes you on a life-long journey in pursuit of a personal mission or purpose.
Back to more practical matters and money is important as April begins. The Sun’s in Aries and your personal money sector until the 20th and talk planet Mercury is here up until the 11th. Plus, there’s a New Moon in Aries, a symbol of new beginnings on the 1st.
Straightaway, this is encouraging you to take the initiative around money matters, to find ways to earn more or invest your money wisely. You may be keen to start a savings scheme or use your money to good effect. Leap into action immediately.
The Full Moon on the 16th cuts across the Aries/Libra axis and this is important too as it triggers the financial sectors of your horoscope. During the Full Moon, you may be ready to make an important decision about money. Yet, you’re wise not to rely too heavily on other people. In any relationship, ensure there’s a theme of financial equality.
Plus, you may find out that someone’s not going to repay a loan on or around this date. Or, perhaps there’s a shortfall regarding a group venture in which you’re involved. Another reason to balance the books carefully.
Taurus & Communication
On the 20th, the Sun moves into Taurus. Talk planet Mercury is here too from the 11th to the 29th. Taurus rules your communication sector, your neighbourhood, siblings and local community.
There’s another planet in Taurus too that’s been here for some time, the planet Uranus. Uranus is the technology planet and a nod towards taking your communications online.
Taurus rules study and education so ring the changes, update your skills and manage your time well. During this period, you may be full of good ideas and ready to share them with other people. Use the written and spoken word to your advantage.
There is another factor here and it’s the Solar Eclipse on the 30th. This is the second New Moon in April, also called a Black Moon. It’s part of the eclipse cycle that began in November 2021 and completes in October 2023.
Eclipses are akin to Uranus, in that they’re often associated with the unexpected, a sudden turn of events. This eclipse, however, is ruled by lovely Venus and on the same day as the eclipse, the 30th, there’s a stunning Venus-Jupiter conjunction. Jupiter is your planet so this does indicate that there could be good news or a turning point that’s beneficial for you.
Love rules the day during this eclipse period. It may not be a big event but one way or another what takes place could be deeply meaningful and remind you of what’s most important in your life. It’s rarely money and usually people-related.
The once-in-a-lifetime Jupiter-Neptune conjunction in Pisces is exact on April 12th. We’ve been surfing its waves since February and there’s a way to go yet. It peaks this month, continues into May & there may be a Jupiter-Neptune revival in November/December.
Jupiter-Neptune themes conjure up big dreams, a cultural renaissance, a spiritual awakening, miracles, revelation, awe & wonder. In Pisces, it’s a flood of emotion, a wave of imagination, a rush of compassion & interconnectedness. It’s also wise to avoid fake news, be wary of scams, choose your faith carefully & lose yourself in a good way.
The Jupiter-Neptune conjunction falls in your 1st house ruling your physical body, your personal goals and ambitions. Any of the Jupiter-Neptune themes could be awakened now as Jupiter & Neptune are your co-rulers. It’s an ideal time to embrace new experiences, be adventurous and say yes to life. Find your escape, your inner artist, your spiritual path.
