Aries - April 2018
Happy Birthday, Aries! The Spring Equinox is of course the official confirmation that winter is over, and the fact that it falls at the time of the year when the Sun enters your sign is no coincidence! Aries marks the start of the horoscope and as a result symbolises spring and new growth. You love nothing better than a new plan, so set yourself some exciting targets for the future. Your confidence will see you through all but the most challenging of situations now, and the new Moon of the 16th is fabulous for making changes to your personal appearance, or getting your body into shape. With Uranus and Pluto mixing in here, the changes you make could be quite drastic, and will have a long term impact on your life. The Sun and Uranus together here between the 12th and 20th will also take you on a rebellious quest for total independence.
Jupiter is retrograde for the next two months in your house of debts, taxes and inheritances, and if you have been impulsive or careless in any of these areas of your life, you will feel the consequences of your actions now. Overspending on credit cards or borrowing excessively from other sources during the first three months of 2018 could rebound, as you realise just how much you need to pay off. On a more positive note, this is an excellent period for some financial reflection and for prioritising needs over wants. The full Moon on the 30th will help you to see the way forward more clearly, and a promising sextile between the Moon and Saturn here sends you an opportunity to make money from a business investment or promotion at work. This area of your chart also deals with emotional intimacy and dependency on others, so don’t be surprised if you feel a little let down now by someone you have invested a lot of time in.
April has you continuing on your quest for spiritual fulfilment, as Neptune’s mystical energy is activated in your house of psychic encounters. You know there is something more to life than this, but you probably won’t find it until you stop looking! Neptune’s sextile with Mars for the first three weeks of the month will send you into situations where you have no choice but to support vulnerable people who need your help. You may find at this time that no matter how hard you try to take some alone time and think of your own plans, you are constantly dragged back to the woes of others. Destiny has a plan for you, and that plan is to help those who need you; in this way you will come closer to your ultimate goal of making your soul happy. Chiron also leaves this part of your chart on the 18th and heads for Aries, a significant change which will send you on a quest to find your true identity.
Venus adds her customary sparkle to your money sector until the 26th, making this a good month to harvest some serious cash through creative projects. Ventures which involve beauty products, music, art and design will be especially favourable for you, and your intuitive business sense will lead to fruitful decisions about what will and will not work. Just take care when discussing money with friends and family members when Venus crosses the nodes from the 8th to 14th, arguments could quickly arise. Venus and Mars will link up during the days of the 2nd to 16th, a time when solid career opportunities will be offered and honoured. Have an amazing April!
