Lets look at the month ahead in detail, Aries!
Aries April Horoscope 2019…
April opens up with powerful celestial weather, as potent Pluto comes into contact with the south node (the point of past karma, and the exit point in the astrological map). Embrace the major shifts that present themselves! For you, Aries, these rumblings and transformations occur in the zone of career, fame, notoriety and your direction in life, and therefore you might be experiencing transitions around career and your position at large. Bear in mind that these are long-term developments, not simply confined to April in particular. January’s new moon eclipse in Capricorn and the past two years of Saturn in Capricorn touch upon this theme, and the path you’re now following.
Depending on the seeds you’ve sown, the work efforts you’ve made, and your worldly ambitions, you may now encounter notable developments; be willing to accept them in their entirety.
On the 2nd and 3rd of April the moon will join Venus, Mercury and Neptune in Pisces, and the area of your horoscope governing subconscious dreams, sleep, surrender and escape. Mercury (now direct in this dreamy and intuitive realm) will be in Neptune’s arms. It’s an ideal weekend for to heighten your reflections and musings, bringing recent realisations full circle.
The New Moon in Aries arrives on the 5th April (at 8.50 am GMT) at 15º of the sign. This is a moment to claim a personal fresh start, however you might not want to go full throttle in focusing solely on you. Sun and moon are in tension at this new moon, with planets gathered in your career zone creating discord in the skies. You may need to strike a balance between autonomous wishes you have, versus how you’re tasked with navigating the world around you.
Sunday April 7th has the potential to deliver clarity, with alignment between Mercury and Saturn bringing a dose of wisdom concerning your accomlishments, and manoeuvring into position – remember that success is not only how we come across to others, but also how we feel rooted, secure and supported from our foundations up.
We’ve an interesting day Wednesday April 10th, as the vibrant affirming sun in Aries comes into tension with stern, responsible Saturn; go steady and anticipate some kind of authority figure or block that could prompt you to slow your roll. At the same time, Venus, Neptune and Mercury will align with planets in your career zone, inviting you to acknowledge how your private, spiritual or artistic sensibilities are nourishing your position and ambitions. Pull back, surrender and tune inwards.
It’s on this day that Jupiter begins its retrograde, which presses pause on growth, projects or plans you’ve been pursuing since November, and soon after (on the 12th) Mercury clashes with Jupiter. Two areas of life may be struggling against each other, which has been the challenge for Jupiter since he entered Sagittarius back on November 8th. With planets in Pisces diluting and rebuffing his purpose, it could be hard to embrace the full potential of Jupiter this year. Jupiter Retrograde offers a chance to think over travel plans, educational projects or writing assignments – anything that broadens your outlook and scope, or delivers new experiences. Venus clashes with Jupiter on the 15th, too, another day that emphasises escape, solitude, dreams and closure over those exciting personal ventures you’re keen to embrace.
On the weekend of the 13th and 14th the sun experiences tension with Pluto signalling another power struggle with figures connected to career progress or your profile in the world. However as Venus is aligned with Pluto you may fare well if you set aside your ego, stand down and surrender. Use the lessons from this recent Mercury Retrograde to thrive.
Easter weekend begins with the second Full Moon in the zodiac sign Libra, Friday April 19th (11.12 am GMT). The moon peaks at 29º Libra, and quickly after the sun will move into the Taurus zodiac sign. Expect there to be greater focus on your professional life with Taurus Season, which puts emphasis on your earnings, income and role that makes you money.
On Sunday the 21st April Venus moves into Aries signalling a wonderful time to have fun! Venus in your sign indicates a time to enhance your sense of pleasure and enjoyment, so make space to indulge your senses and treat yourself.
Your ruling planet Mars enters Gemini on the 31st March and spends April moving through this sprightly, curious, intellectual sign. It spends the majority of the month keeping out of trouble and avoiding antagonising aspects or brushing up against the other planets. However, on April 27th, Mars will clash with Neptune in Pisces, so that while part of you is keen to forge ahead connecting to those in your inner circle, another calling might prompt you to hide away to focus on more inward facing pursuits…
