Aries March 21 – April 19:
Happy Birthday Aries! When your ruling planet, Mars, moves forward in mid-April you will slowly but surely start to get your energy back on track. The area where you can make the most progress is in your work environment. Also, if you’re looking at changing your diet and health routine for the better, look at starting a new program during the New Moon, April 21st.
Taurus April 20 – May 20:
With Mars, the planet of energy, passion, anger and assertion going direct April 14th in your party house and Jupiter, the planet of good luck, optimism, and growth still in Taurus it’s time for you to get out there and make life happen! April is your time to get the fires going again and move your agendas forward expecting good results.
Gemini May 21 – June 21:
After a long couple of months of taking two steps forward and five steps back, April should reveal that all your efforts weren’t in vain. Jupiter, the planet of good luck, expansion and growth is on its way to your sign in June, so, do the leg work now to start seeing the benefits in June and beyond.
Cancer June 22 – July 22:
This month you are at the starting gate to take action in your life. Things have not been going as planned but that is about to change after Mars goes direct on April 14th. Those with birthdays June 29th – July 3rd will be dealing with Pluto, the planet of transformation and change. This isn’t an easy transit so try to be gentle with yourself during this time.
Leo July 23 – August 22:
Many Leos will feel the surge of energy coming back to them by mid-month. This will especially be felt in the area of your career. Get out there and close that deal you’ve working on, court those clients you thought were impossible to get. Life is about to get real interesting…
Virgo August 23 – September 22:
This month pamper yourself. Mars, the planet of energy, passion, and assertion is still retrograde in your sign and so you are probably feeling that it is taking a little more effort just to get through the day. I know being the do do do Virgo it’s not in your normal make-up to take care of yourself because you are always so busy taking care of others. But this month and into April slow it down and pay attention to what your body is trying to tell you. You may just like this new habit and not go back to your old ways next month.
Libra September 23 – October 23:
Libras with birthdays on October 17th – 22nd are still feeling Saturn, the planet of burdens, responsibility, limitations, and lessons in their lives. Just remember this too shall pass and when it does it won’t be back for another 28 years! The good news this month is that you have a New Moon in your house of relationships, which can help give you a boost with your partner and if you don’t have a partner this energy can help you attract one.
Scorpio October 24 – November 21:
Scorpio you have a lot of amazing energy in your 5th house of creativity, self-expression, children, and romance. Neptune the ultimate planet of creativity has arrived and is ready to awaken you to another side of your soul. This month take your time and get acquainted with this new energy. Nothing needs to move fast this month. Inspiration may come to you when you least expect so keep a notepad close by. Enjoy dear Scorpio!
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21:
Work should be busy but it may seem harder to get things done. With Mars, the planet of energy and passion retrograde and Mercury, the planet of communication and transportation going retrograde this month things are bound to slow down and get confusing. Don’t take anything personal this month. Move slowly and take every change, missed appointment, flat tire or misunderstanding as an opportunity to stop and smell the roses.
Capricorn December 22 – January 19:
This is a perfect month all you Capricorns to take a couple of weekend get-a-ways. The energy in the Universe is directing you to slow down and take time out to reflect and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Mercury, the planet of communication and transportation will be going retrograde March 12th thru April 13th so make sure your plans are flexible. Your planetary ruler, Saturn, is retrograde as well so make sure that your responsibilities are covered before you leave town so you can have a carefree time. You deserve it!
Aquarius January 20 – February 18:
Your money houses are lit up this month. Neptune will try to deceive you into thinking that you have enough money when in actuality you may have some extra bills to pay that you forgot about. This year may be the year that you want to start your tax preparation early to make sure you have all your ducks in row and nothing is hiding to come out to bite you when it’s time to pay the tax man next month. Also, get your rest this month and don’t over exert yourself. Patience and self care should be your mantra for March.
Pisces February 19 – March 20:
The Full Moon on April 6th is going to light up your money houses right before tax season. You are also dealing with Saturn, the planet of responsibility and lessons, in your joint money house as well. Mercury will be direct so make sure you double check your finances and important documents you may be submitting to banks, government institutions, and or insurance companies. After April 13th Mars, the planet of passion and energy, will go direct and help with a boost to your energy level. Lots of mixed energy in April so pace yourself and don’t take anything for granted.
