Let’s all try to have a chilled, relaxing Ramadan. Are the planets easing the way? Let’s see what is on the horizon. Just take extra care around the 9th of April, when fiery Mars and emotional Neptune square off in mutable signs Gemini and Pisces.
Tempers may flare and it will be sooo easy to lose the plot. From the 27th of April Pluto will turn retrograde in earthy Capricorn. The message? It’s time to face any issues you have been avoiding, especially on an inner level. No more denial, clear the path for a new beginning.

P.S. Don’t forget to read your rising sign as well if you know it.
Happy Birthday, Aries!
Shoot first, ask questions later.
Mercury bounces into your birth sign on the 4th, bringing an air of impatience into play. You may be in a talkative mood, and in a hurry to put your many plans into action. Venus in your sign until the 14th adds an element of charm to your manner, and with the New Moon in your sign as well, on the 12th, the ball will truly be in your court. Whatever you want to achieve, just go for it!
Taurus: Take time to smell the flowers.
You may be feeling rather unsociable until the 14th, with a need to find some peace and quiet and time to think. By the 14th though, when Venus enters your birth sign, you should be yearning companionship and good times. Try to stay grounded throughout the coming period, Pluto will be retrograde in your 9th house, so your deep-seated beliefs and philosophy may be tested at times.
Gemini: Keep your friends close.
Get out there and network, you will be surprised how effective friends can be in supporting your long term goals. As the month draws on you will appreciate being able to slip away for some quiet ‘me’ time. Make the most of it, you will need to gather energy for a rather hectic time a couple of months down the road. The 23rd could bring strong emotions into play, it may be a sudden attraction to someone new.
Cancer: Relationship issues need careful handling.
Just at a time when you need to put your mental energies into your work, Pluto will throw a curve ball or two in your relationship sector. Just how much are you prepared to compromise in order to keep the peace? And will the situation resolve or will you constantly be the one to give up your rights? Maybe this is crunch time, when you need to get it sorted, or make a break for freedom.
Leo: Distant shores seem appealing.
Current restrictions may be wearing you down, and may make you a little grumpy. You are at your best when you are in charge, and these days that is not the case. When your craving for change wears off a bit, a new work project may capture your attention, giving you a change to strut your stuff and put you back in the limelight. Now, that’s more like it! A gentle reminder, don’t neglect your health, especially chronic issues you may have been ignoring.
Virgo: Try to balance work, finance and relationships.
This may not be the easiest of months, with so many issues in your life all needing attention. Your safest course of action will be to maintain an air of calm assurance and be discreet in your actions. There may be someone waiting to stir up trouble, particularly where your public reputation is concerned. Be particularly careful around the 9th of the month. Emotional support should come in from friends living at a distance.
Libra: Relationships sweeten up.
If you have been looking for some sort of affirmation in a close relationship, you may be feeling a lot more secure by month’s end. The cherry on top will be an improvement in a financial matter. The only area to approach with caution will be on the home front. Things could become unexpectedly complicated so be careful not to get yourself locked into a situation with no escape route.
Scorpio: Don’t take things at face value.
Your workload may keep you tied up in the earlier days of the month, but that should ease up a bit after the first two weeks. Proceed with caution around the 9th of the month, someone may be less than straightforward in a matter relating to finances. Keep your cool and it should be easy enough to get to the truth of the matter. The coming period will be more navigable if you use tact and diplomacy, rather than coercion.
Sagittarius: Stick to sport and hobbies and all should go well.
Advice for April. Keep it simple. Do the things you enjoy. And, and did we say to watch your expenditure? Don’t let any sweet-talker convince you to spend your hard earned cash on something that may not hold any long term benefit for you, namely them. You are too big-hearted at times, by far. Work matters and relationships with colleagues should improve in the second half of the month.
Pluto is still the heavy hitter in your sign, and when he turns retrograde later in the month, you may have to pay dues for any shortcuts taken earlier this year. Take time to think out what you should be prioritizing in your life, and work on staying true to your values. On the up side, domestic life and matters to do with children are particularly upbeat this month, so enjoy the vibe when you have free time on your hands.
Aquarius: Money matters loom large.
You are not one of the materialists of the zodiac. In fact, you can be almost debonair about your ability to cruise along with a few pennies in your pocket. But this April you may need to get real, especially when Neptune and Mars square off on the 9th. There could be sharp words, so make sure you respect any commitments you have made and remember that not everyone is as laid back as you in these matters.
Pisces: Trim your sails and stay on course.
Neptune’s transit of your birth sign may see you struggling with the gritty realities of day-to-day life. Yes, it can be unfair at times, but sometimes you just have to deal with it. Domestic matters are in focus this month, so expect to be busy on the home front. Finances may not be too bad, if you use your instincts wisely, so you may have a few pennies to splash around by month’s end.
