April 2 – 8, 2014


For All Signs: April is loaded with challenging aspects. These are the kind that make things happen, for good or ill. The first four weeks (beginning on Wednesdays) we have planets aggravating the ongoing Uranus/ Pluto squares. The archetypal battle in the sky is among Power, versus Social Justice, vs. the Sovereign Rights of the individual. This is symbolic of the birth of the Aquarian Age. It is a quarrel that will last for much of this decade at multiple levels. If you pay attention, you will see it in the news, perhaps in your neighborhood or job, and also inside your own head. The signs most affected at this time are: Aries, Cancer, Libra, Scorpio, Capricorn and Leo. Many are trying to deal with things or people that just don’t make sense or won’t come together and flow as they “should”. We must elevate our perspectives so we can see a divine purpose at work. Instead of doing battle, we need to be seeing our similarities rather than our differences.

Aries: Aspects that were with you in the past couple of weeks continue to affect your life and attitude. Watch your temper. Choose your battles with wisdom. The Powers That Be are indeed strong and may not have a sense of humor for very long. Think carefully about the consequences of making demands.

Taurus: Venus, your ruling planet, travels with you into the territory of friendships, community and organizational affairs. Over the next three weeks she will enhance your presence at any activity in this sphere. Romance may brighten. Your romantic side is cooperating well with your nurturing side at this time.

Gemini: The sector of life related to romance, children and personal creativity is on hold this week. Meanwhile your ability to concentrate upon projects that require management of details is strong. Organizing files, closets and cabinets will clear the clutter from your mind.

Cancer: You may not be feeling quite comfortable with yourself this week. It appears your mind is in conflict with your feelings. Do the best you can to deal with this issue up front, perhaps by journaling or discussing it with a friend. Keep in mind that settling upon a decision right now is not a mandate.

Leo: Read the lead paragraph and think about it in terms of your own life right now. Everything is heating up for you. Sudden changes may occur related to legal, travel, and educational interests. Drive and handle tools cautiously. You may be subject to accidents now. It is possible that this has just happened in recent days.

Virgo: You may be concentrating on giving practical help to your significant other or to someone else of importance to you. This is a good time to contribute your organizing talent to almost anyone who needs it. Now is also a fine time to share thoughts with your partner and negotiate an amicable agreement.

Libra: Examine your motives carefully before taking any initiatives this week. An action may cost you more than it is worth, especially in relationship to other people. The people whose path you cross may have sudden shifts of intention that surprise and confuse you. Or you may be the one who shocks others.

Scorpio: Gossip or dark tales may be following you around at this time. Absolutely do not directly attack the perpetrator, lest the tales expand and grow like Pinocchio’s nose. If you are innocent, the hidden enemy will be proven a liar, sooner or later. Attend to matters that you can effectively handle for best results.

Sagittarius: You want to go everywhere and do everything at once. You feel generous to others and they to you. If money is an issue, then you would be better off to leave credit cards at home. This period may be difficult for those on a diet or other self-improvement program. You are prone to self-indulgence right now.

Capricorn: There appears to be considerable pressure on you that comes from the arenas of home, hearth and family. Mechanical items may break down, seemingly everywhere in your life. Fortunately you are able to make mindful decisions. If information is needed, you can find it readily. The week favors education in practical skills.

Aquarius: Your sign is known as an “upside-down” thinker. You are a natural at seeing situations and problems from a different point of view than the pack. This is a gift you always bring to any circumstance. This week your opportunity to share comes from your career or life direction. Your vision of the future is utterly brilliant.

Pisces: Your reflexes are off kilter. Use caution while driving, exercising, or handling tools. One or more debts may be paid. Someone makes payment to you, you pay off debt, or both. Over the weekend Venus moves into your sign. The goddess of love brings complements, small gifts, romance, or other pleasures.
