Cancer April Horoscope 2019…
April opens up with powerful celestial weather, as potent planet Pluto comes into contact with the south node and point of karmic ties. Embrace the major shifts that present themselves!
For you, Moonbabe, these rumblings and transformations occur in the zone of partnership, one to one encounters, collaboration and teamwork, and therefore you might be experiencing transitions around how you deal with the most significant individuals in your midst. Bear in mind that these are long-term developments and not confined to April in particular. January’s new moon eclipse in Capricorn and the past two years of Saturn in Capricorn have also touched upon this area and the patterns you’re following in relationships.
Depending on the seeds you’ve sown, the boundaries you’ve made, and your approach to unions, you may now encounter notable developments.
On the 2nd and 3rd of April the moon will join Venus, Mercury and Neptune in Pisces, and the area of your horoscope governing personal growth, education, publishing, spreading the word and cross cultural communications – also long-distance travel and vacations! Mercury (now direct in this lucid and watery realm) will be exactly conjoined Neptune, planet of confusion and higher thought. It’s an ideal weekend for reflection, journaling and bringing recent musings 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 fresh start for your ambitions and plans in the world at large, however you might not want to go full throttle in focusing solely on your goals. Sun and moon are in tension with planets gathered in your partnerships zone, so you may need to strike a balance between the drives you have for success in the world, versus how you need to navigate others.
Sunday April 7th delivers clarity, with alignment between Mercury and Saturn, bringing a better sense of how to communicate, connect and express yourself to individuals – on a broad scale. This is actually a really wonderful day to broadcast a special message to a group or community, or to realise personal growth and a special perspective you have to relate to others. Mark it in your calendar as a day to connect and be visible among friends.
We’ve an interesting day Wednesday April 10th, as the vibrant success-oriented sun (in Aries) comes into tension with responsible Saturn; you may want to be visible, or known, demonstrating how you’re thriving in your position but go steady, anticipating some kind of block that prompts you to slow your roll, Cancer. At the same time, Venus, Neptune and Mercury in your knowledge and experience zone will align with planets in the area of one-to-ones, inviting you to learn from others, grow with the support of others, and appreciate the beauty in having supportive friends, lovers or family members.
It’s on this day, too, that Jupiter begins its retrograde, which presses pause on growth in everyday work, habits, health and wellness, which may have experienced momentum since November 2018; soon after (on the 12th) Mercury clashes with Jupiter, and on the 15th Venus clashes with Jupiter. Two areas of life may be struggling against each other (i.e. your adventurous side which wants to experience something beyond the everyday, and maintaining buoyancy in your day job, fitness and sense of routine). It’s been challenging for Jupiter since he entered Sagittarius back on November 8th, with planets in Pisces overwhelming his ability to flourish and bloom, and it could continue to be hard to embrace the full potential of Jupiter this year. Jupiter Retrograde offers a chance to think over important projects, work or health goals, how they’re developing and will continue to evolve.
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, a moment to acknowledge and appreciate your sense of home, domesticity or emotional ties to ancestry and family. It’s a time to reach out to those you consider to be important in the wider world, those who mean most to you, for connection – pick up the phone!
The sun then moves into Taurus, giving you a chance to head into your wider community to evolve. This is an awesome time to network and begin to improve your personal relationships (though it’s later in May that they will really fall into place). On Sunday April 21st Venus moves into Aries, signalling a time your reputation and career will begin to improve, all in all the end of April makes for a great time to circulate!
Motivator Mars enters Gemini on the 31st March, and spends April moving swiftly through your zone of sleep, dreams, rest and recharging. Note you could be feeling a little low energy or lack-lustre, preferring solitude and escape to true galavanting. On April 27th, Mars will clash with Neptune in Pisces in your publishing and education zone, so that while part of you is keen to reach out, another side might want to keep a low profile. Balance accordingly.
