Horoscopes for 23 April – 6 May

Overview

A key date this fortnight is the 26th  when Mars, the planet of drive and determination, combines with Pluto, lord of transformative forces and hidden wealth, in Capricorn, the sign of material order and defining boundaries. The current banking royal commission into inappropriate advice and “improper conduct” from ANZ, AMP and NAB financial advisers exemplifies these forces at work on a mundane level. The Full Moon in the fixed water sign of Scorpio on the 30th is the next significant date. Full moons are revelatory and this one may bring hidden emotional depths and secrets to the surface, shifting focus onto emotional security. Obsession is a key word for everyone mid-week.

Aries

The middle of this week may see you caught up in a power battle if you allow quiet obsession or increased ambition get the better of you. This will most likely take place in public as Mars, the warrior planet and your sign ruler, and Pluto, raising power and control issues, are combining in your career sector. This is a good time for channelling and tensions into demanding mental or physical work.

Taurus

With the Sun now in your fixed earthy sign the emphasis should be on slowing down and taking time out to smell the roses but you might have to wait till the end of the week, after the Mars/Pluto conjunction on the 26th, when the more obsessive side of your nature may come to the fore and result in a tendency to preach or dominate others over what you believe to be true, especially with partners given the Full Moon in your relationship sector.

Gemini

The Full Moon on the 30th throws light on your health and well-being sector. This is a good time for focusing on what you need to do to take better care of yourself and reflecting on how you put yourself at the service of others, are you really being of assistance or unnecessarily draining your energy? Expect intense competitive feelings to arise mid-week which would be best channelled into physical tasks and constructive obsessions.

Cancer

Obsession and jealousy regarding a relationship could bubble to the surface mid-week, with the risk of making yourself an enemy if you let it overtake you, or you may find yourself embroiled in a power battle with your partner or spouse. There is a lot of determination, physicality and tension in play at the moment which needs release. Tackle situations in a frank, direct manner and give yourself more space.

Leo

A determined attitude in connection to your daily work can effect permanent changes mid-week. Avoid if you can any provocations from colleagues or boss as an up to now level of manipulation against you may rise to the surface to unsettle you. Protect your health and don’t let emotional reactions take a physical toll. Engage the services of a professional if you feel you can’t fix a problem yourself.

Virgo

Mid-week is best for putting a lot of effort into an individual project or sport that you do as this is a highly physical moment connected to determination and hard work. Matters regarding children in your care may see some changes now – don’t let yourself be manipulated by them. The Full Moon on the 30th shifts the focus to siblings and neighbours when any hidden agendas on their part are likely to come to light.

Libra

Events mid-week may create a tense atmosphere at home, one of jealousy or mistrust, or it may be just an unsettled time due to home renovations, redecoration, and other changes to the place where you live. It is a good time to get physically heavy and demanding jobs out of the way while you have the determination to do so. The Full Moon on the 30th is helpful for clarifying your financial position, especially in relation to home and family matters.

Scorpio

This Full Moon in your own sign at the end of the month can bring clarity to issues around emotional boundaries – seeing where you project your issues onto others or, conversely, take responsibility for emotions that are not yours – so you can strip away needless drama. This can be especially true in relation to your siblings, questioning their underlying motives to get to the heart of any outstanding or unresolved issues.

Sagittarius

With this mid-week Mars/Pluto power combo in your property and finance sector you may get quite obsessed over possessions – things you own, or want to own, or something that someone else owns. This, together with the Full Moon on the 30th illuminating the most hidden and private corners of your life, can describe a momentary ruthless approach to personal finances, money making and getting your own way in business situations. You may also be feeling more secretive about what you are doing with your resources

Capricorn

Mars and Pluto together in your sign mid-week point to increased and obsessive personal ambition. You may be drawn into power battles or potentially difficult circumstances with somebody senior or in authority in your life. Something secret, hidden underground or concealed may be the subject of much of the tension. This is a demanding time and you may also be making fundamental plans to change your career direction. Keep busy and focussed.

Aquarius

This Full Moon in your career sector will help clarify your professional standing or the life direction you have taken, but first you need to get past any issues that arise mid-week. You may feel controlled, powerless and utterly frustrated at any attempt to manipulate you, but try and focus your energies on changing other peoples’ lives rather than on yourself. You may find yourself dealing with other peoples’ secrets.

Pisces

A fundamental change or sudden power balance shift with regards to group associations or friendships based on sharing common interests could come about mid-week. Fights for control or jealousy may come to the fore, dividing and destroying the status quo. Try not to get dragged into ‘all or nothing’ confrontations. Perhaps your hopes and dreams are at stake in some way but you’ll understand the need to be more realistic in the future.

 

Horoscopes for 9 April – 22 April

Overview

The key dates this fortnight are in mid-April, when Jupiter, the planet of opportunity, optimism and expansion, connects with Pluto, lord of transformative forces and hidden wealth – the original powerbroker. Matters linked to events at the time of their last contact in mid-January may resurface to be dealt with more effectively. The New Moon in Aries on 16 April is a good time to commit to personal goals and to try something new and innovative, especially as Mercury is also turning direct – a revitalising moment to move onwards and upwards!

Aries    Aries

With the New Moon in your sign together with electrifying Uranus, the planet of independence and abrupt change, expect the unexpected mid-month. Rebellious attitudes, either your own or of those around you, suggest impatient or impulsive moves and the risk of misunderstandings. Assertiveness without being abrasive will help you take charge and reaffirm your own personal courage. Keep proactive – make things happen instead of waiting for them to happen to you.

Taurus    Taurus

Venus, your sun sign ruler and planet of attraction and pleasure, is in your sign until the 26th this month, boosting relationships and physical pursuits. The New Moon mid-month in your retreat and reflect sector supports reaching constructive conclusions, cleaning out or unexpectedly winding up matters. This period favours behind the scenes preparation for things to come. Around the 14th there is also a chance to refresh partnerships and reach an important decision regarding them.

Gemini    Gemini

Mid-month is an opportune time to reset work relationships and put them on a better footing as your ruling planet, Mercury, ceases retrograding. As it moves forward, relationship matters can be clarified, old friends may reappear and previous delays resolved. This New Moon with individualistic Uranus in your group associations sector may coincide with some unexpected liaisons, or the challenge of accepting/rejecting other people’s agendas and ideas. Best to keep your own counsel for the moment.

Cancer      Cancer

This New Moon mid-month continues to put the focus on your professional status and public involvement. You may find yourself caught off guard by sudden changes in the workplace but also the possibility for greater independence if you’re open to it. With any changing circumstances in your public life don’t ignore the effect it may be having on your private life – be more open to partners, adapt to their needs and make amends if you have upset them recently.

Leo       Leo

Don’t stop believing in yourself. With professional ambitions still in the spotlight, time can be well spent building connections to those who can help you to manifest your creative aspirations. There is a lot under review regarding your future and whatever difficulties arise now can be taken as suggestions as to how your long-term plans may need to shift. The mid-month New Moon highlights exploration of unexplored territory bringing unexpected discoveries or solutions to situations you previously thought limited.

Virgo     Virgo

This mid-month New Moon puts the focus on what you are prepared to share in a relationship, in terms of joint possessions and finances as well as whether you feel comfortable in sharing at a deeper, more intimate level. With Mercury, your sign ruler, turning direct now is a good time for going ahead with any financial plans that have been delayed or put on hold. Good news may come via a chance encounter with someone in your neighbourhood or a sibling.

Libra    Libra

This mid-month New Moon with Uranus, the planet of unpredictability, in your relationship sector suggests that your partnerships are likely to be anything but boring. You may be drawn to someone because of their eccentricities or be surprised by what you find out about your partner that you didn’t know about before. Whatever the case, relationships of all types are likely to undergo rapid reappraisals or realignments to emphasise more flexibility and freedom.

Scorpio   Scorpio

The mid-month New Moon with unpredictable Uranus suggests you need to be ahead of the game by having a Plan B. Your schedules or routines are unlikely to go as planned so be prepared to bend like bamboo in the wind to get the best results. This fortnight is favourable for finding greater freedom within restricted or overly predictable schedules and situations and being more open or accepting of people in a position of influence over you.

Sagittarius   Sagittarius

Your love life, children and free time activities are highlighted with this mid-month New Moon. This is a good time for taking a more playful approach to dealing with life and facing any challenges sent to try you. Indulge yourself in favourite hobbies or special interests and take a more romantic approach to a relationship that has lost its lustre to rekindle emotion. Self-expression through play is life’s best therapy at the moment.

Capricorn    Capricorn

This mid-month New Moon is putting the focus on the solidity of your life foundations – your home, parental and family relations. Saturn, your ruling planet at home in Capricorn, currently stressing the importance of maintaining boundaries is now at odds with disruptive Uranus. The challenge here is to reassess family loyalties in terms of the support they provide – are they contributing to you realising your own personal goals or holding you back with inflexible or unrealistic expectations of you?

Aquarius    Aquarius

With this New Moon falling in your sibling and neighbours sector, these relationships may be put to the test by unexpected or unpredictable reactions from them, but wait till after the 17th before responding to any provocation. Mid-month is better for reassessing career initiatives and seeing how you can have more control within your work environment. This is generally a time of professional expansion and a good moment for courting people in a position of influence who can be of assistance.

Pisces      Pisces

This New Moon with unpredictable Uranus in your finance sector suggests a reassessment of financial plans, investment opportunities, incomings and outgoings with a critical eye to covering yourself in the case of unexpected expenses. Not the moment for a shopping spree mid-month as you’re likely to succumb to some heavy duty impulse buying and blow your budget for the rest of the month. You can always start financially planning a holiday trip abroad, without the cost of paying now.

 

Horoscopes for 26 March – 8 April

Overview

This fortnight the focus is on Mercury, communication and negotiation, moving retrograde in Aries. Retrograde motion refers to the movement of a planet when it appears to reverse direction. This happens due to an optical illusion caused by differences in orbit between Earth and Mercury, the fastest planet in our solar system. It enters apparent retrograde motion three to four times a year, for about three weeks at a time.

Aries    Aries

With career and status in the spotlight this fortnight you’ll be working hard, but watch what you say as it may be misconstrued, and remember to bite your tongue occasionally to avoid unnecessary confrontation. Mercury now retrograde in your sign suggests reviewing how you appear to others. Do you need a change of image? Time to think more carefully about what you say and the impact that it has on other people while still being true to who you are.

Taurus    Taurus

With your ruling planet, Venus – pleasure and attraction, moving into your sign on the 30th, you may be feeling the need for extra pampering and some inner peace and calm. Mercury retrograde in your retreat and solitude sector can incline you to be a little more introspective and less outgoing than usual. Keeping your thoughts to yourself now will prepare you for finding the right moment to speak in a few weeks’ time. It’s probably best to take your own advice rather than relying on others at the moment.

Gemini    Gemini

With Venus triggering a need for more serenity in your life and Mars/Saturn in your shared finances sector, you may be feeling the pressure of loans or debt and have a feeling of constantly needing to fight to survive. This is a time to review your ambitions to make sure they are relevant for you as you go forward. On the other hand, Mercury retrograde indicates a good time to catch up with friends you haven’t seen in a while.

Cancer      Cancer

The Sun is currently highlighting your career and status sector, with Mercury retrograde here advising caution in how you express yourself to those in positions of authority as your words may be taken out of context. Review your work prospects in the coming fortnight, and ask yourself if you need a change of role, or just attitude. This is a good time to complete work already started, but not for taking on new work till Mercury turns direct.

Leo       Leo

What do you believe in Leo? Mercury retrograde over the next couple of weeks suggests a revision of what you know and what you think the future holds. Are you really following your life philosophy or do you need a change of course? This is a good time to get a wider perspective. They say that travelling broadens the mind and it may help, but expect delays and hitches if you are taking a long trip or going abroad.

Virgo     Virgo

Mercury retrograde in your shared finances sector suggests you review any debts you have and pay off monies owed. Now is not the time to take out new loans or renegotiate repayment contracts. Your free time may be limited, possibly due to extra demands on your time you can’t avoid, like overtime. This situation is temporary and will get back to normal with Mercury direct. Good time to talk about things openly in your most intimate relationships.

Libra    Libra

Mercury retrograde in your relationship sector suggests a review of your partnerships, both personal and professional, over the coming weeks. It is time to get things out in the open and to discuss the real issues so that you can set a fresh course, not doing so could lead to confusion, misunderstandings and compound any problems. If past partnership issues come up again they need to be definitively put to rest.

Scorpio   Scorpio

Mercury retrograde in your health sector puts the focus your general well-being and what you can do to improve it. Now is a good time to try out a new fitness regime or a change of diet, or you may want to adjust your work routine to make it better suited to your needs. Relations with co-workers could be made difficult by misunderstandings at work, especially around the 2nd, when a temporary hold on communications, contracts and decisions is advisable.

Sagittarius   Sagittarius

Mercury retrograde in your romance and creative pastime sector suggests a review of your romantic expectations and creative ideas. A past flame may reappear unexpectedly or keep distractingly popping up in your thoughts. If you have children or work with them you may not be feeling very jovial, making play seem like hard work and communication with them more difficult. The first days of April best for looking seriously at your financial situation with an eye to the future.

Capricorn    Capricorn

The spotlight is currently falling on your home and domestic life sector. Past matters to do with family may return, hopefully not to haunt you. You may be already reappraising your domestic situation or directing your attention at improving your living space, redecorating or rearranging. Mercury retrograde suggests you think more carefully about what you say to family members and those you live with to avoid possible confusion and misunderstandings between you and those you live with.

Aquarius    Aquarius

A busy fortnight ahead, focused on your communication and networking skills, dealing with documents and short distance travel. You may have to review a contract or chase up correspondence that has gone astray. Be attentive to the messages you are putting out to avoid giving the wrong impression, especially when dealing with siblings and neighbours. Don’t lose sight of your dreams and contact with those who share them with you.

Pisces      Pisces

It’s time to think more carefully about your finances – earning and spending, and review any business ideas or plans. Matters in group situations may be difficult at the beginning of April as you could feel isolated from everyone else or that someone you trust is over critical of your efforts. Going against the wishes of the majority will only halt your ambitions now so shift focus and bide your time till a better moment comes along.

 

Horoscopes for 12 – 25 March

Pisces      Pisces

Jupiter, the planet of abundance and opportunity, is empowering the Sun in your sign this week, encouraging you to broaden your horizons and feed your creative potential, in readiness for the New Moon in Pisces on the 18th. With this New Moon you can wind up any loose ends from the past year and set your sights on new directions to explore. Dream big while the Sun is still in your sign till the 21st.

Aries    Aries

The Sun currently in the last sign before moving into yours on the 21st may be fostering an air of finality around some situations. Don’t be in a hurry to force new initiatives as this week favours a watch and wait approach. Your planet, Mars, moving into Capricorn only hours after the New Moon on the 18th marks the beginning of a two month period of professional and personal challenges, so rest up now.

Taurus    Taurus

The current Sun (splendour) – Jupiter (opportunity) connection creates the potential for new and different friendships. You may be very much in a party mood this week and find it easier to shine more in fresh company. The New Moon on the 18th can bring an element of surprise followed by relief as Mars, drive and determination, moves into a more compatible sign. Look ahead with conviction – although many things can slow you, nothing will stop you.

Gemini    Gemini

With the Sun in the most elevated place in your solar chart and aligning productively with fortuitous Jupiter emphasising status and reputation, now is the time to focus on what you hope to achieve in your professional life. The New Moon in Pisces on the 18th may momentarily obscure your professional dreams with worry, but let go of the reasons you can’t do what you love and the opportunities will present themselves.

Cancer      Cancer

Dear Cancer, is love calling out to you from afar? With the Sun shining in your romance sector joining forces with Jupiter, opportunities from foreign places, you may be feeling an attraction towards something more exotic than dining in your local food mall. This week is good for planning long distance travel, or an out of the ordinary romantic interlude. Deal with any legal matters before the New Moon on the 18th for a more favourable outcome.

Leo       Leo

Your ruler, the Sun, in favourable rapport with Jupiter, the planet of growth, puts the spotlight on home investment, property contracts and home improvements. The New Moon falls in your joint finances sector, which includes loans and mortgages, so prospects to get a great deal on financing improve after the 18th. Good time too for discussions with a financial planner to put your savings and investments on a course that will produce greater growth and stability.

Virgo     Virgo

The Sun moving through your partnership sector is currently highlighting relationships and commitment, especially the legal aspects and contractual nature of these relationships and associations given the involvement of Jupiter this week. This favours working positively with partners – life partner, business or travel partners, but with Mars moving into Capricorn on the 18th, your focus will shift more towards building a rich emotional life with the most romantically engaging one.

Libra    Libra

The Sun currently moving through your health sector puts the focus on taking care of yourself and not getting lost in the stressful mundane details of everyday life. Over-attention to daily tasks can easily sap energy that would be better employed to restore and stimulate other interests. Mars moving into your home sector on the 18th suggests tension or clashes on the home front or work to be done to improve your living situation.

Scorpio   Scorpio

Jupiter, the planet of opportunity and expansion, in your sign this year favours the bold and brave if you’re striving to get ahead. The Sun currently in your creative sector is in ideal alignment with Jupiter and signals the moment for undertaking anything important where you need everything to go right. With the New Moon on the 18th in your romance sector, together with Neptune – dreams and ideals, the moment is ripe for meeting someone very special.

Sagittarius   Sagittarius

The Sun currently moving through your home sector puts the spotlight on home-related projects, especially those you haven’t had the time to start. Your ruling planet, Jupiter, has just begun a retrograde phase indicating a time for going back over unfinished things, picking up where you left off. The New Moon on the 18th invites you to look at where you live, not only for things that need fixing, but also as your nest, as a place to support and restore you.

Capricorn    Capricorn

The Sun to jovial Jupiter is favouring your social scene, group outings and catching up with people in your neighbourhood. This is a good time to reach out and make contact with more expansive networks or influential people. Mars, the planet of drive and determination, moving into your sign on the 18th will help you get noticed and attract support for your ideas, even if in recent weeks it has not been that way.

Aquarius    Aquarius

The Sun currently moving through income sector and linked to expansive Jupiter in your achievement sector favours a salary increase, or perhaps a new more prestigious position is in the offing. If you have been interviewing for a new job or angling for a promotion, the New Moon on the 18th suggests you stay confident and optimistic. The days and weeks following this New Moon should work to your benefit, so get out there and start negotiating.
