Scorpio - April 2019
Hey there, lovely Scorpios! You probably need to watch that cash flow in April, as Jupiter turns retrograde in your financial sector on the 11th of the month! Prior to this he will, of course, be slowing down in preparation for his direction change, therefore it’s not the best of months for relying on your luck to see you through difficult money-related situations He hasn’t let you down so far, but now that he is incapacitated by his own tardiness, you may notice that money is harder to come by, and that the time for spending and attracting those extra pennies has reached a temporary pause. Once we near May, you will enter a reflection process, in which you are urged to consider how you spend your income and where you can make some savings to ensure a secure future for yourself and your family. Jupiter’s challenging connection with Venus between the 11th and 19th could be especially tricky, a time when your social calendar will be very full, and some expense will be necessary to honour your commitments.
Pluto is also about to enter a retrograde phase, heading into reverse at the month end in your communication sector. Here we see some frustration and restriction around your attempts to communicate important thoughts and opinions; the intensity of your emotions could get in the way of your self-expression, causing a state of inertia as you struggle to verbalise everything you feel. Pluto and the south node come into contact this month in a long-winded conjunction which will last until November; there are some heavy karmic vibrations around this aspect, which could take you into conversations with passionate and interesting people, who seem to suddenly cross your path at the right time to offer you important advice. This is also a deeply transformational time for your education, you may be reviewing previous studies now with a view to continuing or completing your learning.
The new Moon of the 5th directs promising lunar energy to your house of everyday work and chores, and this is a fabulous time to change your working environment around by applying for a new job or moving to a different department or location. Everyday life is likely to alter in some way for you around this date, whether or not you have consciously decided to make some changes. Mercury is also in this area from the 18th, upping your conversational skills around work colleagues, and this is a fabulous period for attending important meetings. Paperwork will increase now, as will office gossip; take care not to become too distracted by other people’s chatter! Mercury’s sextile with Mars after the 26th is favourable for working to adapt policies and procedures in your work place, or implementing new ways of approaching tasks.
April’s full Moon rises once again in your house of secrets, sending you back to those plans you made in mid-March for some down time, to reflect on your own aims and dreams. The Moon’s persistence here tells us that you are not quite hitting the mark with your spiritual development, and this area of your life needs more focus and commitment. Psychic work is well-favoured around this date, and dreams and intuition will be powerful tools to guide you in the right direction. Venus’s contact with Neptune between the 6th and 19th is also a highly creative aspect which will push you to express your imagination and work on your innermost desires and wants. A new romantic relationship could arise at this time, and this will be full of compassion and genuine affection. Enjoy your April, Scorpio!
