Work

There’s a high chance that most of you are celebrating your birthdays in April, so happy birthday! With a new moon in Aries, this is also a time where you find that much of your luck is finally turning around. Despite all the obstacles and challenges that you had to face last month, you will find that your hard work is finally bearing fruit. There are many opportunities coming your way this month. You must learn to be a bit disciplined and organised so that you do not miss any of them. Keeping a work journal or having a log of all your appointment or meetings can be a life saver this month. Keep moving forward during this prosperous time.

Romance

While the challenges or issues of last month may not be fully resolved, Aries must learn to put down your warrior weapon and adopt a gentler and more emotional approach this month. Instead of fighting back, learn to see things from your loved one’s point of view. Learn to provide a listening ear and act as a support for your friends and family. Your actions and encouragement will be louder than anything else you can say. While a resolution or conclusion to conflicts won’t come fast or easy, start laying the groundwork to recreate or strengthen the emotional ties you have. This is a time for tapping into the feelings of those around you.

Health

With this being a birthday month for most of you, you may be feeling a renewed sense of energy and potential this month. However, you must practice caution. Avoid taking risks or picking up new sports or ventures that you know nothing about. This is also a good time to focus on your emotional and spiritual health. Communication is key to both your mental and emotional health, so really focus on being more open and learn to use your words more. Keep up with your good habits and don’t stray from what you have already started.

Finances

In terms of finance, April brings you some financial blessings. Projects or ventures that you have been investing in will finally start to pay off this month. You may experience small windfalls or find additional income nearer to the end of the month. While this is a blessed month, be careful about taking risks. You may be prosperous in starting new investments or financial projects, but only if you start in areas that you already know. Otherwise, just enjoy this month and set yourself up for even more success by the time that the next month rolls around.

Work

Work continues to be challenging this month. The effects of Mercury’s retrograde still haven’t quite left you. Things will move slowly this month, slow enough that it can frustrate even you. Thus, it is a good idea to consider kickstarting ideas or projects at an earlier than projected date. It doesn’t hurt to be an early bird. More importantly, ensure you have a strong foundation before you embark on anything. Be it in the form of talented employees, colleagues or a strong legal backing such as a lawyer, you will need to rely heavily on your resources, especially in the face of conflict. This may not be the best time to start projects that are separate from your current business.

Romance

Money and finance may have a big influence on your current or future relationships during April. It can be a source of conflict, but also a way for you and your partner to bond and overcome obstacles. It may be the only thing that can help you both connect during this frustrating and restless time. You may feel more vulnerable this month, which can also make you more defensive towards others. The best thing to do is to try and keep your opinions to yourself. Older relatives can provide valuable relationship advice this month. Otherwise, your relationship this month will be based on what actions you take and whether you wish to approach conflict or issues.

Health

Mental and physical health are extremely important this month. April can be a mentally exhausting time. This frustration can affect your physical health by reducing your energy levels and making it feel difficult to keep up with your usual health routines. Your stubborn Taurus nature may be telling you to just work through these issues as always, but this is a time where you should look to relax and soothe yourself. Learn to schedule in some time for yourself where you can have fun with your hobbies or simply take a break from all the other areas of your life. Keeping a stress-free and relaxed mind will help you better tackle other obstacles or issues that may come your way.

Finances

Taurians are usually thrifty savers who understand the value of every dollar. However, last month has left you a bit scattered and you feel more prone to opening your wallet this month. It can be easy to just throw money at a problem or to make yourself feel better. There is nothing wrong with treating yourself from time to time, however, you must be careful about being too careless with your spending. Especially because your finances may not be the most balanced or steady this month. It is only good practice to look at your expenses and to start budgeting and saving. You will thank yourself come the end of April.

Work 

Mercury’s previous retrograde leaves you in a state of flux when it comes to work. While many things may frustrate or worry you, there are many positive opportunities that take place as these obstacles start to fade. You may wish to wait until the 17th, when Mercury move into Aries and provides you a clearer picture, before moving forward with any major decisions. Learn to deal with the obstacles and problems that may come your way in the meantime. People may be especially frustrating to you this month, but you must learn where and when to pick fights and when to let things be. Keep an eye out for a major opportunity that may be coming your way.

Romance

Gemini slowly emerges from their solitary cocoon of last month. You are ready to get back to socialising and engaging with your friends and family. However, you are not yet ready to throw yourself back into the dating game just yet. Luckily, you won’t be missing out on much. April is a very busy month for many other signs, leaving them with less time to socialise. This allows you to take your time in getting comfortable. However, the more you get used to it, the more you find yourself getting frustrated with the lack of attention from others. Remember they gave you time when you needed your space, so learn to return the favour.

Health

Geminians start this month off with a burst of new energy and vigour. Physically, you’ve never felt better, and you are ready to embark on journeys that fuel your own self-worth and growth. However, while your body and emotions are aligned with one another, your mind is still playing catch up. People around you may not be able to offer the most support as they are dealing with their own issues. You can feel frustrated and irritated at that which may lead to further conflicts and further harm your mental health. Look to activities that help you relax your mind, such as meditation or yoga. Do not take on stressful activities and avoid competitive sports for this month.

Finances

Come this month, Geminians may continue that state of flux when it comes to their financial situation. While things are set to get better such as your investments of financial projects, you may find that you also have to open your wallet more often when it comes to both business and personal expenses. Luckily, these two will help to offset each other. To help yourself, avoid being too hasty when it comes to investments or playing the stock market. You may be too idealistic, when you really need to be more practical and realistic about what you stand to gain and lose moving forward with any deal.

Work

April marks a turning point for most of you. While there is still the possibility for emotional conflict between you and your colleagues, you may find that your overall career is progressing forward nicely. This is a time where you must really start to prepare though, instead of simply relaxing. You must start laying the groundwork for future success. This involves tying up any loose ends and resolving conflicts. You must confront issues you may have been avoiding for a while now. Though you may not be able to completely resolve these past obstacles, the effort will count for something. Look to start with as clean a slate as possible come next month.

Romance

The message of confronting the shadows of your past to lead a brighter future continue to ring true when it comes to Cancer’s love life. There are many positive things happening to you in April, but you must look to resolve any lingering issues or obstacles that may crop up from decisions you made before. What’s most important is that you do not give into your timid nature. Stand up for decisions you believe in. Embrace the changes you have gone through as a part of who you are now. People will be attracted to that confidence and optimism. This is also an excellent time for couples to take a trip together.

Health

Fortune continues when it comes to your health this month. If you’ve taken the proper steps regarding your emotional and mental health last month, you will find that they are paying off this month. However, while you can enjoy this good bout of health, there are some things you will still have to take caution against. Chronic pains, migraines or old injures have a potential to flair up this month. If you have any long-term illnesses, injuries or headaches, it is a good idea to schedule a doctor’s visit. Always err on the side of caution. Otherwise, look forward to the good health coming your way this month.

Finances

Look forward to this month, as the potential of a promotion or raise is high if you play your cards right. However, be cautious all the same as this good fortune may lead to unhealthy spending habits. While there is nothing wrong with celebrating your career taking off, especially in terms of finances, you must not allow yourself to become a spendthrift. Learn to budget your success and save up for rainy days. You will be able to find even more success following simple rules about how to save money. Do not take for granted the wealth you receive this month.

Work

Leos will be happy to know that things start to speed up this month. You’ll find many new exciting opportunities and projects for you to take on in your career and you’ll also find yourself hitting the mark when it comes to your instincts. Things are going your way and you need to quickly pull yourself together from the confusion of last month, in order to take advantage of it. However, be cautious as you’d be experiencing a bit of a shake up in the middle of the month, when Mercury moves into Aries on the 17th. You may have to rearrange your workforce or reorganise your team. Otherwise, this is a time you can truly shine.

Romance

Many Leos will look to their family and loved ones, seeking out comfort this month. You are finally starting to truly let your walls down for those around you. Thus, you want to surround yourself with people you truly trust. While this can be a beautiful bonding time for you and your loved ones, it can be difficult for new relationships where you haven’t developed enough of a trust yet. It can be hard to bring up your personal feelings to a new partner, which can lead to more emotional walls or conflicts. Try to put aside these issues and focus on just having fun with your partner instead. Enjoy the relationship while it is still young.

Health

Leos’ fiery spirit shines through in their health this month. You feel a new sense of vigour and energy. However, while your body is physically there, your mind is not yet ready or willing to take on any sort of menial work. This might be a good time to take a break or a vacation. You will find more progress sorting out your mental state then attempting to plow through an obstacle. Older Leos should take some caution — elders are more at risk of brittle bones or hurting their joints. Avoid strenuous activities and take extra care while travelling or on the road.

Finances

Leos can relax a little bit this month when it comes to finance. You may find unexpected financial support from colleagues or family members. This is the perfect time to clear up any bad debts that may have been left over from the previous month. Otherwise, be careful about becoming too content with the good fortune coming your way this month. There may be hidden expenses that start to crop up in the later half of the month, both in relation to business or personal expenses. You need to rally yourself in order to focus on ensuring that you can keep a balance between your expenditure and savings.

6. Virgo

Work

Continue to hunker down and just try your best this month. The problems of last month may not be so easily resolved and it can be frustrating to you. Things move much too slowly for your liking and it may seem like your team isn’t as fired up as you are to fix problems. If things aren’t going the way that you want them to, this can be a sign that some serious change or a shakeup in the organisation is needed. You will need to make difficult decisions this month, but if possible, you should try to push any major business proposals or ideas till after this period of career instability is over.

Romance

Familial ties are very important to Virgoans and this month, that is especially true. You may find yourself growing closer to your relatives, parents or children. You are more than willing to give them your undivided attention. However, when it comes to your partner or finding new relationships, you may encounter some difficulty. Walking on new ground is always difficult for a Virgoan, so you may have trouble opening to your partner as you do your family. Bad habits can annoy you this month, but to an extent that isn’t justified. Learn not to let small issues turn into big conflicts. If you just step back, you may realise how silly an issue it is to argue over.

Health

This can be a mentally taxing month for Virgoans, with all that’s happening. Luckily, April is ready to bless you with the energy you need to tackle these issues. Do not take the small burst of vigour for granted though, as rest and relaxation are still major areas you need to focus on. You still have a lower than average endurance and mental level this month, two things which Virgoans usually pride themselves on having. So, you must take more caution and not underestimate the time you need to reorganise yourself. Do not try to head into conflicts with the same fire you usually do, instead rely on your practicality and diplomacy to avoid needing to spend more energy.

Finances

While your financial situation is slowly starting to get better and recover from last month, you shouldn’t drop your guard just yet. You still need to be careful regarding your expenditure. In order to bring in extra income to cover the costs of your spending, you will also have to be a little bit bold when seizing your monetary gain. Invest in things that can improve yourself this month; however, be cautious about loaning money to others or taking out investments based solely on the persuasion of other people. This is not a good month to spend frivolously. Just keep your head down and look to Virgo’s detailed and practical nature to lead you through.

Work

Finally, it is Libra’s turn in the spotlight. While you’re still shaking off last month’s Mercury retrograde, things are finally starting to turn around for you in April. As you slowly start to come back to your usual self though, you may find that your communication skills are still not at their best yet. You will find the most trouble dealing with people, especially during negotiations or meetings. Sometimes, you may find people taking advantage of your generosity and you will have to put your foot down. Ensure that you are clear and direct with your message. Make sure you read all details in a contract. After all, you can never be too careful this month.

Romance

The first half of the month is rather pleasant for Librarians and their loved ones. It is a time when you and your partner can truly make your house a home. You are looking to unify your surroundings the same way you both have in your relationship. As long as you are both willing to work together, you can create a harmonious environment. However, watch out as on the 20th, Venus looks to enter Aries, which can throw a wrench into your plans. Conflicts may come out of nowhere, especially regarding things such as privacy or security. You must learn not to be too shocked by these conflicts and instead, act as a diplomat to weather through them.

Health

Librarians begins to mellow out a little come April. Both physically and mentally, you are not in a place to dive into competitive sports or intensive exercise full on. Your body is telling you that you still need a bit of rest. In order to avoid feeling lethargic or out of touch, consider incorporating light exercise or activities into your routine. Taking walks or going for a light jog in the sunny outdoors can be a great way for you to get some fresh air and exercise your muscles. Be cautious as you can also be prone to be carelessness this month.

Finances

While you may experience some conflicts in your work and negotiations, your financial income and stability continues to be steady this month. It is neither good nor bad, but will remain stable. This may sound boring, but Librarians should see this as a platform for them to properly budget and plan. It is better to have a predictable income than an unpredictable one after all. Make the most of this by saving and budgeting for future expenses or projects. If you want to have a better foundation for future ventures or investments, now is the time to start pooling money if you want to make big changes or decisions in future.

Work

You will need to learn to multitask this month. If you work with others, you may find yourself being assigned a lot of work. Work may pile up at the very last minute, leaving you frustrated. Luckily, April promises you the strength and ability to focus and do a good job on the projects you take on. However, during this busy period, understand that it is easy to have your efforts overlooked. Don’t worry though, at the end of it, people will take note of all the responsibilities you took on — it will just take time. This month try to always leave a bit of your time free, in case you get extra work. It will make you feel less stressed.

Romance

Work is going to take up most of your time, leaving you feeling as if you simply do not have the strength or energy to pursue a romantic relationship of any sort. You simply aren’t in the mood for romance this month, which may cause conflicts between you and your partner. Single Scorpios may find it difficult to date. If possible, try to put it off till next month. For attached Scorpios, you will have to be honest about your situation to your partner. Let them know you are too tired for romance now and you just need time to recharge and get back to your usual sexy self. Romance will come around again, you just need a break.

Health

As said before, you are going to feel a bit of a drain on energy this month. Many things call for your attention, leaving you physically, mentally and emotionally exhausted. Therefore, you will have to take extra care to keep your energy levels up. Ensure that you get enough sleep, eat the appropriate foods and keep yourself hydrated. Focus on getting energy rich foods such as brown rice, eggs, sweet potatoes and various fruits. Avoid doing tasks that require you to focus on complicated patterns or require high levels of concentration as you can be careless or reckless while you are tired. This is especially true when driving or operating heavy machinery.

Finances

Finance is another exhausting area that you will have to pay special attention to this month. It is likely to be filled with ups and downs as both income and expenses increase and decrease without warning. You must always be ready to make changes, reorganise or reallocate your resources on the fly. You can make lifesaving decisions when it comes to finance and money, however, that does not mean that it is any less exhausting. Still, it is better to trust yourself and your instincts. For those working in financial industries, do not be afraid about overestimating the amount you need to budget or save.

Work

With Jupiter’s retrograde in Sagittarius, April promises progress, new business relations and ideas. However, none of these will come to you easy. You will have to fight for your ideas and go out of your way to meet people and form business ties. Luckily, Sagittarius is a passionate sign, and individuals know how to push for what they want. Be careful not to rely too much on passion though, you still need to be practical and realistic in order to persuade others to join your cause. Last month’s energies still linger, which may lead to conflicts in the workplace ifyou’re not careful. Take these obstacles in stride and do not let it slow you down.

Romance

When thinking about passion, the fiery and romantic Sagittarius often comes to mind. However, you may want to keep your passions in check this month. Everybody loves the feisty and fiery Sagittarius, but this month, your loved ones need you to be a quiet support to them instead. You have to learn to stop trying to lead the charge and instead, take a step out of the spotlight and lend a listening ear to those close to you. Listen until the end and provide reasonable suggestions, or at least offer your support to them in their time of need. You can still be loud through the smallest actions and in your offering of affection.

Health

You find your stride once more when it comes to your health this month. As Mercury retrograde’s draining effects begin to wear off, you regain your energy slowly during the month of April. You may not yet be as energetic or ready to take on challenges as you usually are, but you are able to adopt your usual routines of fitness again. As long as you don’t push your limits or try anything too strenuous, you should find your health to be relatively stable and blessed this year. However, remember to still take adequate amounts of rest and avoid greasy or junk foods. Replace any fatty carbohydrates with fresh greens and fruits.

Finances

Now is the time where you have to take a close look at your finances. You may prefer working with the big picture, but remember that the smallest details can make or break a project. They can be essential as to whether or not you succeed or even get started with your plans. This is a good time to work on these tiny details as well, as now is not the time to make any big moves or decisions. Money may shift as expenses grow and you may have to look to bring in income from other short-term ventures, such as renting real estate, sale of loose stock or odd jobs.

Work

With Mercury’s retrograde finally ended, Capricorns are starting to busy themselves with their careers again. April is an important month for Capricorn, you either move your career forward with new ventures, or you should consider putting down the work papers for a bit and taking a break. It all depends on how you perceive your own ability coming out from the frazzling period of Mercury’s retrograde. You need to objectively look at yourself and decide whether you can handle the opportunities and workload that will come your way. A good way to determine this is to see how well you manage people at the beginning of this month, be they colleagues, employees or partners from other businesses.

Romance

Any strain in your relationships will finally come to light this month in the form of conflicts or arguments. While you may feel that everyone is being too irritable, remember that it takes two people in a relationship. You may have been unknowingly a little distant over these past few months, which can cause unintended stress in a relationship. Major familial changes in the home or relationships can also add extra pressure. This can be a tough time, but also very enlightening. Learn to view things from a different perspective and be honest with your feelings, but don’t be argumentative. It is important to adopt a calm attitude. Remember, you’re speaking to your family and loved ones, not your adversaries.

Health

Capricorns feel very mentally charged, but not physically ready. This can be very frustrating as you feel as if you have the strength to push forward with your plans or ideas. However, in reality, you are not ready yet and trying to push forward with anything will only hurt your health. Trying to work when you’re not at your peak can also lead to careless mistakes or having a project not turn out the way that you want. It may be difficult, but you will have to practice patience. Right now, it is a good time to just relax. Ensure you get plenty of sleep as Capricorn is prone to feeling fatigued or lethargic this month.

Finances

As with the previous month, finance is mostly stable with no major ups or downs this month. However, what has changed is your attitude towards it. You feel as if you are ready to start pushing investments or launching financial projects at the beginning of the month. Stop. You have to be patient when it comes to looking for opportunities to bring in real success for yourself. Watch for your chance — it will come naturally and when it does, you know when you can start moving forward again. Look out for your chance closer to the end of the month — an unexpected windfall, raise or promotion may come your way.

Work

The dark cloud of last month’s Mercury retrograde starts to slip away for Aquarius. It feels like a breath of fresh air as you can finally exercise your creative limbs. You will still need to stay on your toes as there may still be some conflicts arising in the form of dealing with people or added work. However, you are in a much clearer mindset and excited to jump onto the projects or ventures coming your way. Don’t be afraid to propose your own ideas, however, do not attempt to launch any of your own plans too hastily this month. It is important to make sure every single detail of your idea has been hashed out and approved first.

Romance

As Aquarians slowly get back to their usual selves, they may unknowingly change towards their family and loved ones. While these changes are not bad, it can still be rather jarring to those around you. Be prepared as this month may bring about heated arguments or even explosive confrontations between you and your partner. External changes in your personal or home life can bring added stress and communication is a sore spot. Be prepared for these conflicts and do your best to remain cool headed. If possible, ask if you can discuss issues in the following month where you will be surer of yourself and your responses. Keep your head down in the meanwhile and do not hold grudges.

Health

Rejoice because your health is at a great state this month. You feel completely reborn as your energy levels return to their appropriate high levels. You are absolutely brimming with energy and your only issue is that you may be a bit scattered with your passions. You aren’t quite sure how to spend your energy and this can cause you to waste it. Try to find one singular health goal you can work towards and focus all your energy and passion on it. Concentration will be a tough spot for you this month, but as long as your passion follows, you can overcome any obstacle. Do not try to push yourself too fast either.

Finances

Consider budgeting your finances this month as April promises increased spending on both personal and business matters. However, at the same time, this is a prosperous time for Aquarians to bring in extra income from side businesses or projects. Overall, you’re projected to come out with more than you initially started with. This relies on your own ability to make use of your passion and transform it into monetary gain. Look to ventures outside of your usual career path or industry; they will bring you success.

Congratulations Pisceans, you are finally beginning to come into your own. With Venus in Pisces, your career is on an upward trend. You definitely feel far more confident and ready to tackle whatever may come your way. Keep an eye out because people will be a valuable asset to you this month. Benefactors, colleagues or even your boss can provide good advice or support. It is important you do not try to get too ahead of yourself when embarking on projects. Avoid taking risks this month as well. Trust your gut instinct and do not let others sway you too easily into a direction that you do not feel comfortable in taking.

Romance

You may still be reeling from the changes that you were beginning to implement in your life last month. They are not finished changing your life and will continue to affect you in April. Change can be scary even when it’s good, so be prepared for conflicts that may arise due to it. That being said, romance can be found, surprisingly, in the past. Attached couples can find renewed passion revisiting old dating sites. Singles may find someone from their past has suddenly caught their eye or may even reconcile with previous partners. Ironically, in moving forward, you learn to make peace with your past and gain unexpected blessings from it that will go towards your future.

Health

Mercury and Venus both enter Aries within this month. Their combined energies and proximity to each other work to renew your energy and passion. Health overall looks good this month so you should take this time to enjoy it. The biggest change is most notable in your self-esteem and confidence. You look at yourself in a new light and are ready to take on any obstacle. This new-found confidence is a boon and you should not waste it trying to doubt or put yourself down. Embrace this energy and go ahead with it. You know yourself best this month, so follow your instincts and keep up good habits.

Finances

Pisceans can look forward to their finances and financial growth this month. You may have felt ready to quit last month, but your windfall is finally coming to you. There are many opportunities for you to make extra income this month, but they may come unexpectedly. You may not realise you have an opportunity until it is staring you in the face. So always make sure to keep an eye out. Once more, avoid opportunities that are too risky or that you are uncertain off. Trust your instinct, it will lead you down the right path to success.
