Horoscopes for April 2016
Paying attention to the details is important for you Rams this month, especially around your career goals. Using the energy of Mercury and the Sun in your sign at the beginning of the month is important, especially as the join in Conjunction with Uranus and join his Trine with mars and Saturn. You’ll find Mars’ energy a positive drive of energy to really get things done, but this in itself causes difficulties when you’re not paying attention. By the end of the month, Uranus’ Square with Pluto may have you finding difficulties keeping your focus, so it’s definitely important to get as much done the first half of the month as you can, leaving the last half of the month open for these awesome distractions (no one said a distraction wasn’t something fun!)
Lucky Days: 26th – 28th
Happy Birthday Taurus! The Sun moves into your sign on the 2th, while Mercury moves into your sign just a couple of weeks ahead of him, and going into our second Mercury Retrograde of the year from April 28th to May 22nd. But don’t panic, the Sun moves into a Grand Earth Trine with Pluto and Jupiter almost as soon as he moves into your sign, and as Mercury joins this aspect with a now Retrograde Jupiter and Pluto you’ll find yourself feeling more powerful as things “feel” like they’re slowing down. This “slow down” period helps you to see the details of these lessons more clearly, giving you the power to eliminate what you need to let go of easily. For example, Mercury’s Retrograde is often a lesson in holding back what you need to say rather than spilling everything all at once. It doesn’t mean the words aren’t important, but the Retrograde energy helps you eliminate the need to say something in order to understand the situation better, resulting in an awesome understanding as well as a clearer foundation to start some new plans!
Lucky Days: 1st – 3rd, 29th, 30th
The Month of April finds you stepping out of the fog of what was and into an awesome new present that you never thought possible! There truly is a reason why the word present is used as a gift and our current reality. The present IS a gift. This month, understanding the gifts that you have now makes all the difference in the world as you open up to the support you have around you. Really understanding this gift is the difference between appreciation which leads to success, or failure to appreciate that leads to nothing. This outward reflection also reflects on how much you appreciate yourself, thus placing more obstacles than necessary in front of you. Take the time to appreciate every little detail, and see how much these details lead into so much more to appreciate later!
Lucky Days: 3rd – 5th
This month helps you discover the root of the reason why it can sometimes be so difficult to give yourself time. As you become more and more accustomed to self-care you may find old rubbish coming up into your life, situations that rear their ugly heads, the faces seeming to mimic emotional situations from the past. It’s easy to think that avoiding self-care means avoiding our own internal process, but the truth is self-care or not these issues are coming up for a reason. This month it’s time to take this for what it is, and allow these situations to come through. Doing this allows you to deal with the situation in a different way, and provides an awesome opportunity for you to release the internal struggle for good. After all, you wouldn’t keep a splinter in your finger knowing that the pain will get worse and worse, possibly leading to the loss of the finger entirely. You would pull it out and begin to allow that wound to heal. Emotional healing is not much different.
Lucky Days: 5th – 7th
Get ready to celebrate just how awesome you are Leos! This month is all about you; taking care of, celebrating, understanding, and embracing YOU. Understanding yourself isn’t about accepting what you think your faults are and staying that way. It’s more about understanding those faults and making a change for the better. When you face yourself without fear or judgment, you’re empowered and ready to take control of yourself and fight the battles you have to fight in order to grow. After all, no one in history who ever wore the crown did so because it was just their right to do so. Most had to fight to keep it, prove they deserved it, and awed everyone around them into believing it was theirs. The more you understand the importance of that crown for you, the more willing you are to accept it as your responsibility and do what is necessary to keep it.
Lucky Days: 7th – 9th
Jupiter’s T Square with Mars, Saturn, and Neptune continues this month. As Mars moves into retrograde you may find yourself feeling completely worn down, especially when it feels like financial difficulties and dealings with those you love seem to take their toll on your nerves in general. But as Jupiter also continues his Trine with Pluto this month, Pluto’s movement into Retrograde position has things slowing down in a positive way, and when this Trine becomes a Grand Earth Trine with the addition of the Sun and Mercury it’s time to understand the importance of things slowing down right before something big happens. Try to avoid making things happen on your time, and be open to just how awesome the Universe’ touch really is and she helps you build your dreams. The lesson here is pretty simple; when every path seems to lead to a dead end, it’s time to take a rest and wait for the right one to reveal itself, then go full speed ahead toward your goals from there!
Lucky Days: 9th – 11th
This month you will find out just how much your external surroundings can have an effect on how you think and process information. Thoughts become cluttered or you find you have too many of them when your surroundings are cluttered and nothing seems to have a place. This month it’s definitely favorable for some spring cleaning! Get rid of the stuff that no longer has a place in your life, and organize the things you still need into something that allows the energy to flow better. While you’re doing this external clean-up you’ll find your mind is also starting to flow in a more organized fashion, allowing you to get even more awesome things accomplished than just your space!
Lucky Days: 11th – 13th
The Dark Moon spends some time in your sign this month urging you to make changes around your home and helping you to identify where some of the relationships around your home need attention. When you find yourself in a situation where you are not satisfied with the way something is going, this month it’s time to set out and make some changes. Don’t bother with “wishing” there was a way to fix something when there is always a way. Spending time hoping something will change on its own doesn’t help the situation. Take the time to address these problems right away, making sure they don’t become bigger problems. Taking care of it straight away leaves more awesome time for you to enjoy your progress.
Lucky Days: 13th – 15th
Mars goes Retrograde on April 17th through June 29th, promising to be back again after he goes Direct in the Summer. As he joins Saturn’s T Square with Jupiter and Neptune this month, you’ll definitely feel the effects of his frustration as you find yourself feeling financial difficulties strongly, so strongly it may be affecting your closest relationships. But Mars and Saturn’s Trines with the Sun, Mercury, and Uranus this month are still driving toward your goals, and the Moon’s Grand Sextile with Mars, Saturn, and Uranus on the last day of the month will provide the support you need to make awesome things happen. Don’t try to force things to happen, just let them happen when they’re meant to happen. This helps you avoid feeling frustrated when things aren’t going your way.
Lucky Days: 16th – 18th
Pluto goes Retrograde from April 18th to September 26th this year, and his Squared position with Uranus may feel even heavier as you find yourself feeling like you can’t seem to make changes in how you do things in order to really make progress in your career goals. But his Trine with Jupiter becomes a Grand Earth Trine as the Sun and Mercury (also retrograde) enter into aspect. This glorious Trine, containing three out of four Retrograde planets, shows you just how much slowing things down has a way of speeding things up at the same time, and the results are awesome!
Lucky Days: 18th – 21st
This month provides an opportunity to really explore your relationship with money! It’s true, we often don’t think of ourselves as having a relationship outside of living, breathing beings, but our relationship with money is more important than what you do to make it. If you find yourself missing money a lot of the time for example, turn that thought process into something more positive and see yourself getting a visit from the money. Does it sound silly? Of course it does! But Aquarians are awesome enough to do it anyway and see what happens!
Lucky Days: 21st – 23rd
Neptune’s T Square with Jupiter, Mars, and Saturn becomes more difficult this month as Mars goes Retrograde later in the month. When it seems like you never have enough money to do what needs to be done, it can be easy to fall into old mindset traps that bring you down completely. But Neptune’s Grand Sextile with Pluto, the Sun, and Mercury toward the end of the month show you how to use this disadvantages to your advantage, providing you with a whole new way of looking at your financial and time restrictions. Obstacles are meant to make you stronger, don’t let them hold you back instead! Your goal is to achieve your dreams, and be awesome in the process!
Lucky Days: 23rd – 25th
An Evening of Mediumship with Craig Morris
Tarotscopes for April 2016
ARIES: 21st March - 20th April
In work, you have a lot to be proud of regarding your work performance, even if you haven’t quite seen the rewards you would expect from this yet. If you’re looking for work, you will soon find a position that is going to be better than you expected. Hold your head up high and know that you have a lot that you’re bringing to the table.
TAURUS: 21st April - 21st May
In April, you may be trying too hard, pushing too fast, or in general stepping on the toes of others. You may need to study the body language of others, and consider how well you do (or do not) accept constructive criticism from others. You are likely to have a great deal of mental and physical energy now. Use it wisely.
GEMINI: 22nd May - 21st June
Know that renewed good times lie ahead for you. If your “gut” is telling you that you really need to get out of a relationship, job, or living arrangement, trust yourself. Instead of this coming out of the blue, or someone or something leaving you, it usually means that you are the one who will make this choice. Very often one door has to close behind you before the next door in front of you can fully open.
CANCER: 22nd June - 22nd July
The energy of this time lends itself toward arguments; try to keep your temper under control, and not take everything that others say to heart too much. Sudden events can happen now. This is not an indicator that you need to panic. It is, however, an indicator that forewarned is forearmed. Even if you think that you have the most stable job or sources of income in the world, what would you do if it dried up tomorrow? Where might you go immediately for work if you needed to? Thinking things through now, when you are not in a crisis, may pay big dividends for you on down the road. If you hate your job, give serious thought to making a change. You deserve to be happy.
LEO: 23rd July - 23rd August
Love is in the air in April for Leos. Either an existing relationship is going to take a turn for the better. Indeed for an existing relationship this could be a deeper level of understanding, or commitment, or almost any important aspect of a relationship. It will feel almost like a new and encouraging start. If you are as yet uncommitted, a new relationship is likely to appear soon.
VIRGO: 24th August - 22nd September
This month I feel there is a a need to face the music financially. Don’t avoid the reality of your financial situation. Try to be generous no matter how tight your financial situations might be. No matter how modest your situation is, there is doubtless something that you can and should share with others, even if it’s “only” an object or your time. This can often “open up” more prosperity in our lives. Give with kindness and compassion, and know that what goes around always comes around. Don’t hesitate to ask for help if you need it.
LIBRA: 23rd September - 23rd October
It’s a spiritual month for you and I feel that you are likely to have a desire to try out lots of different approaches to spirituality to see how they “fit.” Nothing wrong with this exploration, however don’t get too carried away in any one thing while you are “just shopping.” This card can indicate a powerful need to get deeper knowledge about spirituality, and your friends and family may not understand where this is coming from. Regardless, you have to do what is best for you.
SCORPIO: 24th October - 22 November
April is an an excellent time to make investments, follow your instincts about them. Money should be flowing very well. Be sure to “keep the flow going” by putting back out a little of what you have, to a person or cause that is important to you. Share your abundance. If you’re trying to get pregnant; this is the month to do it !
SAGITTARIUS: 23rd November - 21st December
It’s important now for you to make time to meditate and contemplate and spend some time alone even if you are in a committed relationship and have lots of children and responsibilities! Do not allow yourself to spend time in preoccupation and fear. Outward things will be going all right but what is of the most paramount importance is keeping your head on straight. A good time to use your willpower for things like diets or giving up smoking.
CAPRICORN: 22nd December - 20th January
Your workload may be unrealistically heavy now. Don’t hesitate to ask for help or ask questions, and if your supervisors or a colleague comes to you with a request for something new on top of your already incredibly overflowing plate, ask them which thing you should not do to make room to do the new thing? If you are looking for a position without much success, do not lose heart. Keep trying, and you cannot fail.
AQUARIUS: 21st January - 18th February
If you are looking for work this month, you will find something that is better than you dared hope. If you’re currently in a position that you want to stay in - things are about to get even better at work for you than you would have hoped. Your efforts are valued. Just keep doing what you are doing.
PISCES: 19th February - 20th March
This month you will be made aware of someone who is behaving with less than ethical intentions. Someone could be prying into your life, where they don’t belong. If you sense that someone is spying on you, you may be right. If you are tempted to dig through someone else’s life (unless it is that of your minor child who has given you cause for concern), resist the impulse. Everyone deserves privacy.
