April 2012 Horoscopes
4.2.12

Aries, The Ram

Happy Birthday, Aries! The sun is in your sign until the 19th of the month, bringing a new start. Your birthday is always an important time of year, because the Sun sends its energy to you and sets the tone for the year to come. During this period, set some goals of where you would like to be by your next birthday in 2013. Early April could start off slow, with Mercury in retrograde until the 4th and Mars, your ruler, retrograde until the 13th. Take things slow for the first 2 weeks. After that, you will be ready for full steam ahead! April 6th is a full moon in Libra, your opposite sign. The opposite sign is always the sign of partnerships; these partners can pertain to people you work with and your significant other. It appears that a commitment to a partner is being made at this time. You have had your fair share of heaviness when it comes to relationships, with Saturn in Libra. All of that will be a distant memory once Saturn finally moves into Scorpio in October. This Full Moon looks quite positive and you seem very excited by the partnership that is being made at this time. Once you get to the new moon in Taurus on April 21st, your focus will shift toward your income. It’s a great time to ask for a raise or make a revision in the way in which you deal with your hard-earned money. It’s going to be a great month, Aries – all eyes are on you!

Taurus, The Bull

Taurus, it’s that time of year where things are winding down just before your birthday. Aries rules your solar 12th house of transitions, making it a good time to clean out the closet and release all that no longer serves you! You have had a lot of changes happening this year  with lucky planet Jupiter in your sign – some amazing, and others a little more difficult to deal with. This is the perfect time of year to heal your mind, body and spirit! Create vision boards; journal and start planning what you would like your life to look like. A Full Moon arrives in balanced Libra on April 6th, occurring in your 6th house of health and work. You may land a freelance position or start to see some nice results when it comes to a workout routine. If you need to have a check up with a doctor or dentist, this would be perfect timing! Mercury is retrograde in your 11th house of groups for the first couple of days of April. You may hear from a friend you haven’t heard from in awhile. Mars is retrograde in Virgo until the 13th in your 5th house of creative self-expression. If you have felt stuck when it comes to love or a creative project, things should start to pick up after the 13th. The Sun enters your sign on the 19th, restoring life and vitality to you. Take the first 3 weeks to clean out the cobwebs, so you’re ready to start fresh at month’s end.

Gemini, The Twins

Gemini, it is an exciting month for you when it comes to friends and romance. The Sun is shining in Aries, your 11th house of groups and friendships, for the first 3 weeks of the month. It’s the perfect time to get together with friends and hit the town for social events. Try joining a group of like-minded people for running meetups, wine classes, a book club – you get the idea. It’s all about meeting people who share your interests. Like the old saying goes, birds of a feather flock together! You will be ready for some romance by the time the Libra’s Full Moon rolls around on April 6th! Libra rules your 5th house of creativity and romance. You may think of a creative project that you want to start working on or you may meet someone new when you are out and about. Whatever comes up looks sure to be steamy, and you’re loving every minute of it! Mercury, your ruler, is retrograde for the first couple of days of the month. Things should be looking much better by the time you reach the full moon on the 6th. Mercury in retrograde asks you to revise what you have been working on. The Sun enters your solar 12th house on the 19th, just in time for a little rest and cosmic cleaning. The end of the month is perfect to release what is outworn in our lives. Sometimes we just carry baggage around and don’t know when to release it. Well, this is the time of year! Try out a cleanse or sign up for a yoga or a gym membership. You have a fun and romance-filled month ahead, Gemini – soak it up!

Cancer, The Crab

Cancer, it’s a major career month for you! All of the hard work you have been putting in the past year is finally about to be recognized. The sun is beaming its light into your 10th house of career and recognition. It’s the perfect time to get a promotion or send the resume out if you are looking for a job. A big moment on the homefront arrives with the Full Moon in Libra on April 6th. If you have wanted to find the perfect place to live, you may finally find exactly what you are looking for. If you are not moving, you could be busy redecorating your current place with fresh paint, furniture or some cool knick-knacks. Mercury, the planet of communication, is retrograde in Pisces, your optimistic 9th house, for the first couple of days of the month. Perhaps a trip or media endeavor has been put on hold, but by the 3rd of the month, you should be full steam ahead. Mars remains retrograde in Virgo, your 3rd house of communication, until the 13th. Hold off on making any major agreements or negotiations until after the 13th. Once the Sun drifts into Taurus on the 19th of the month, you will be ready to spend more time with friends.

Mars moves direct speed on the 13th, allowing you to move forward with your financial plans. This month is shaping up much more to your liking!

Virgo, The Virgin

Virgo, it’s a big month when it comes to getting your finances in order. If you have been trying to apply for a home loan or any kind of mortgage, things should be set in motion now.
