March 21-April 20
You’re definitely in the mood to make lots of executive decisions – and who am I to stop you? – but you’re advised to proceed at a cautious pace as Neptunian fog is all about, especially in matters to do with career or life direction. The life hint is that there’s much to gain from taking a few scenic routes in your encounters with bosses, ‘authority’ or parental figures. Duplicity is not suggested; more a readiness to disguise your objectives and keep your own counsel. You want to shout and scream yet a shut trap is your strength. For now.
April 21-May 21
With Mars in your chart house, it’s all about money, lifestyle, hedonism and ethics (the last is optional, but this is the Ethical Hedonist magazine…). The Taurean idea of ‘pushing’ for anything is to scrape the ground with a hoof before charging at the prize, whatever it is. Nothing much will stop you. You can try it, but it won’t work this month, alas. Instead, treat this month as ‘preparatory’ to making financial improvements. Do the groundwork. The Jupiter retrograde this month also urges a softly-softly approach to money and emotional issues.
May 22-June 21
The road-runner in you is all charged up (Mars in Gemini!) – and you’re ready to fight the good fight to pursue your own interests. Certainly, there’s much to do not just in career matters but in cultivating useful contacts, especially when ruler Mercury enters Aries on the 17th for about three weeks and focuses the mind on allies, business interests and networking. Broadly the way forward is to throw away the compass and GPS, put your wet finger in the air and use your senses and instincts to discern the way the wind is blowing. Given all the life changes you’re going through, it is the wise Gemini who gives her/himself space to travel a lot lighter.
June 22-July 22
The grass really is greener over the fence – in this instance. The dream you have, the planned journey, the longing for so much more: that’s right, cherish these thoughts because they are your way out of the tedium of déjà vu. Once again, you’re having to tackle awkward people who seem determined to mess up your career plans – or any plans for that matter. You have the emotional intelligence to get the better of them, but you’re wondering: when does it end? In a sense, it never does. What can end though is any tendency to fall into repeat situations. Hence those dreams…do what you can to pursue them as key to more personal freedom.
July 23-August 23
Whether it’s romance you seek or something a lot more raw, this is the month for it – and you won’t necessarily have to book a holiday. The Venus-Neptune merger in your chart house of sex and psychology certainly orients you to close bodily contact – spiritual too if you’re into that sort of thing. Who can blame you? Work looks heavy, and life direction is now under wild old Uranus – if you feel your world is now run by a lord of misrule, it is (but that can be exciting…). So, focus on the passions. We all need some light relief from time to time.
August 24-September 22
Whatever happened to your subtlety and nuance? The planets have bulked you up psychologically, which is useful for bringing down walls; but what if the requirement now is for the weaving of a magic spell to mislead your enemies (or people who fail to spot your genius?). The likelihood is that you’re not a magician or witch, so use the next best thing: charm. Can you do that? Ask others how they are, smile, listen to responses and do not peer over shoulders. Attend to the person in front of you. That person could be the key to unlock.
Libra Conscious Horoscope
September 23-October 23
If you’ve felt over-worked or under the weather – poor poppet! I have some good news. Mercury and Venus are leaving your chart house of health and work in April (where they met Neptune,
Scorpio Conscious Horoscope
October 23-November 22
Tally-ho! The hunt is on – and who’s your quarry? Some blameless individual you’ve decided is your next sidekick? Co-ruler Mars is now travelling through the chart sector associated with Scorpio, helping you in any investigation, pursuit or analysis. Progress will be slow (true for all the signs, but in different life areas) – happily, Scorpios can be amazingly resilient in sticking to a course once they’ve set on it. Meantime, the New Moon encourages you to pay more attention to health and wellbeing. The money saved on abstinence from booze and illegal drugs can be redirected to membership of a health spa. Just saying.
Sagittarius Conscious Horoscope
November 23-December 21
Starting out on a new project is one major feature of April under New Moon – you’re finally putting flesh on the bones of a talent or passion and launching something in your own name. I wish I could say it’ll be plain sailing – you wouldn’t believe me in any case. With Mars opposite your sign, certain relationships are bound to be extra, er, lively; so, stock up on new crockery. You could avoid a lot of grief by editing the words that pass your lips but frankly I don’t think you want to. Subconsciously, you’re quite up to ending one or two relationships via a good old-fashioned row.
December 22-January 20
Quite why you’re reluctant to make home changes when all the facts point to the need for them is just one of those mysteries of life. The probable answer is that you fear that life could get too ‘interesting’ if you suddenly uproot and enter Topsy-Turvy. If it helps, make a plan. Set it down on paper, so that ‘change’ is suddenly an ordered thing. Just remember that wild, inspired Uranus now occupies your house of passions – life is preparing you for a new way of doing things. Spontaneity may yet have its attractions. But not in April.
January 21-February 19
Where did it go? All that money. You left the house one day, laden with coin. And returned lighter – relieved of coin. Did a shop window seduce you? Did a man bearing many heavy wrist watches persuade you that Rolexes come two a penny? Never mind, we all have to live and learn. Neptune’s long-term occupation of your money house will expose you to cons or over-pricing. This is a month for learning new things. Fill that fast mind of yours with new knowledge for one day it will help you spot a con a mile away. The wise among you won’t have a clue of what I am talking about. You know it all already!
February 20-March 20
Pisces is the babe-magnet of April (at least for some of it). With Venus passing over your ruler Neptune, you will be putting the moan in pheromone – positively indecent! More usefully such pulling power is priceless to win over an adversary or potential employer. While this is flattering to the ego, the real beneficiary could be your finances as New Moon occurs in your house of income: so it’s just possible that your winning ways
