Pisces April Horoscope 2020

Mercury In Pisces

Talk planet Mercury is in your star sign Pisces as April begins, where it remains until the 11th. This is where Mercury turned retrograde on February 17th and Mercury has been in your star sign since early February.

So, in early April, the focus is on you and your personal life, your inner voice and your ability to speak up. You may want to write down your feelings, to journal or share your thoughts and experiences with others.

Mercury teams up with Neptune, your co-ruler, on the 4th, a good date to tend to your imagination and engage with soulful activities and nourish your spirit.

Be careful that you don’t become swamped with news or information. Keep close tabs on how much time you spend on social media and staying informed.

As a sensitive Pisces, you have an empath quality and you’re more vulnerable and emotional than most. Keep boundaries in place to keep yourself safe and sane.

Mars & Saturn

This is also a key feature of Mars’ move through Aquarius and the most hidden sector of your horoscope. Mars remains here throughout April and, as the month begins, it’s close to Saturn.

You may want to hide away or perhaps you need to self-isolate. There’s a lonely feel to this combination. Although as Mars separates from Saturn on or around the 11th, then you will find it easier to start to enjoy aloneness or solitude.

Find new ways to keep yourself engaged and active. Saturn’s the planet of fear which may take hold early April. Do your best to learn strategies to help keep fear at bay.

Aquarius rules technology so ensure you use your time online well. Reach out to others, reconnect, study or learn something new. Often, when planets are in your previous star sign and the most hidden sector of your horoscope, you benefit from walking a spiritual path, finding your religion or faith. Don’t turn Mars’ accusing nature inwards and learn to meditate or to silence your inner critic.

Home & Family

Venus’ move into Gemini on the 3rd lights up your home and family sector. Venus is the planet of love and relating, art and beauty and it remains in Gemini for an unusually long time until August 7th. This is because Venus turns retrograde, i.e. will be on go slow next month.

For now, this promises happiness at home if you can stay flexible and stay connected. You’re one of the mutable star signs so you thrive on variety in life.

Ensure you get out for a daily walk, be around people who lift your spirits and commit to learning something new. Keep your mind and brain lively. You may enjoy talking to your family more than you have done for some time this month.

Jupiter Pluto Conjunction

People are also important for you because of the Jupiter-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn on the 5th. This major duo makes two more planetary aspects throughout 2020, on June 30th and November 12th. It acts as a backdrop to your year, an important theme and Capricorn rules your friendship and group sector.

This is an important conjunction for you because it involves your ruling planet, Jupiter, the planet of opportunity, growth and expansion. You may find it hard being away from friends or not being able to connect with the groups in your life in a normal way.

Yet, these two significant planets represent rebirth and renewal, change and transformation. You may be the one to play a leading role bringing people together, either through technology or in your local community.

Keep your eye on the future too as Capricorn rules hopes and wishes in your horoscope. Line up some new goals for later in the year and into 2021. Find ways to remain positive and keep moving forwards.

Taurus & Communication

This is also a feature of Uranus’ move through Taurus, a key transit in your horoscope. Taurus rules your communication sector, your neighbourhood, siblings and local community. Uranus is the technology planet, another nod towards taking your communications online.

Taurus rules study and education so ring the changes, update your skills and make the most of your time. Be careful, however, on or around the 7th when Mars and Uranus clash. This isn’t the best date to get involved in a debate or major conversation as it feels volatile and confrontative. Rein in your emotions and avoid anyone who’s angry or unleashed.

Later in the month, the Sun enters Taurus on the 19th followed by Mercury on the 27th. Plus, there’s a New Moon here on the 23rd, a symbol of new beginnings. An ideal date to learn something new or take a group online.

During this period, you’ll be full of ideas and you need to initiate some of them, even if other people aren’t in agreement. This might not be the best month to listen to your friends, especially on or around the 14th/15th and 25th/26th. Instead, trust yourself and do what feels right for you. Life’s changing quickly towards the end of this month.

Money Matters

Finally, money is important especially during the Full Moon cutting across the Aries/Libra axis on the 8th. This is the financial axis of your horoscope. You have the Sun in Aries until the 19th and talk planet Mercury here from the 11th to the 27th.

On or around the Full Moon, make an important decision about money. Keep the lines of communication open and stay on top of new developments. Don’t rely too heavily on other people when it comes to money. The stars suggest that it’s up to you and you’re the one who has the ability to get things moving.

If you do need support or want advice, choose the weekends for a family or friends conference or online get-together, especially the 11th and the 18th/19th when there’s help and enjoyment in full supply.

Aquarius April Horoscope 2020

Edouard Manet, Sun Aquarius – b. January 23, 1832

Mars & Saturn

Mars, the planet of action, is in your star sign Aquarius throughout April. This puts the emphasis on your personal goals and aims, your image and profile. Mars is the physical planet so it’s a good month to prioritise your health and fitness.

Yet, as April begins, Mars and Saturn are close together in the zodiac, both in your star sign. They made an exact conjunction on March 31st and remain within orb until the 11th.

This can feel tough, weighty, a burden. Mars is speedy and fast, whereas Saturn is slow and steady. Immediately, there’s a mismatch of planetary energies fighting against one another.

So, pace yourself as the month begins and do whatever you can not to slip into negativity. Keep upbeat, be determined and dig deep. If you are starting April confronted with personal issues or challenges, know that once Mars moves away from Saturn, then you’ll have more motivation and energy.

Mars in Aquarius is the activist and some of you may be on the frontline within society, as Mars’ nature is courageous and bold.

Aries & Communication

Also, in April, there’s strong emphasis on the fire sign Aries and your communication sector. The Sun’s here until the 19th and talk planet Mercury is in Aries from the 11th to the 27th. Therefore, it’s important to reach out to others, to connect, talk and brainstorm new ideas.

Aries rules siblings and neighbours in your horoscope, also your local community. These are the areas of your life to be active in, to take the initiative and make things happen. This is positive astrology for writing and speaking, especially online.

Aquarius, your star sign, represents society and community, collaborative ventures and future trends. Some of you may be at the forefront of new inventions, new ways of benefiting our society. Be aware that what you put in place this month can take off big-time in 2021.

The Full Moon on the 8th is a powerful one for you as it cuts across the learning and education sectors of your horoscope. You may choose to study something new, to update your skills or qualifications. Keep your eye on the future and do what you can to stay connected and keep learning.

Gemini Joy

You’ll be one of the star signs seeking fun, enjoyment and pleasure this month, no doubt in creative ways. This is because Venus, the planet of love and relating, art and beauty, moves into your fellow air sign, Gemini, on the 3rd.

Venus remains here until August 7th, an unusually long time for Venus to be in one sector of the zodiac. This is because Venus turns retrograde, i.e. will be on go slow next month.

For now, Venus is urging you to seek pleasure in life. Gemini rules romance in your horoscope, children and pregnancy, creative projects, entertainment and luck. The 4th is a stand out date in this respect when Venus connects with your ruling planet Saturn in Aquarius. Plan something special.

The weekends in April are important for you to reach out and connect with others. The 11th, 18th & 19th have lively astrology, so make the most of this and be the one to initiate new ways of staying in touch.

The emphasis on fire signs – Aries – and air signs – Gemini, Libra, Aquarius – throughout April taps into the extrovert side of your nature. If you’re finding self-isolation hard-going, even more reason to keep your mind and brain active and stay social.

Uranus & Adapting

There is some challenging astrology taking place this month, partly to do with your home and family and your connection to the past. There are two reasons for this. Firstly, Uranus, your co-ruler is now in Taurus at the base of your horoscope.

Uranus brings change, sometimes the unexpected. On the 7th, Mars clashes with Uranus and this could be when tempers flare. You may feel especially frustrated on or around this date. Take care that you don’t take it out on people at home and try and channel your anger/passion into a positive outlet.

Uranus is a key player later in the month as it joins the Sun in Taurus on the 26th and Mercury in Taurus on the 31st (May 1st in some countries). There’s emphasis on your home and family sector in April from the 19th onwards, peaking at the New Moon on the 23rd.

This may mean you’re the one getting creative and bringing excitement and new ideas to your home and family. Normally, you’d be on the move under these stars or changing your family set up in some way.

Jupiter Pluto Conjunction

Yet, this is also about being pulled back to the past. The Jupiter-Pluto conjunction on the 5th falls in the most hidden sector of your horoscope which often relates to what’s been and gone.

These two major planetary influences connect two more times in 2020 on June 30th and November 12th. They can take you down to the depths. Pluto rules self-analysis and this is about your inner world. For some of you, it may be a time of release, loss or letting go.

Ideally with this combination, it’s important to pursue a spiritual path, to find your religion or faith. This is the philosopher, seeking meaning beyond the self and the everyday. Events on or around the 14th/15th and 25th/26th could reveal where your challenges lie.

Try not to over-react or speak your mind if this won’t help your current situation or will have repercussions or consequences in your life.

Sometimes, it’s best to say less not more. This may be especially relevant for you with regard to your close relationships, on the 21st and the 26th, key dates for love.

Capricorn April Horoscope 2020

Henri Matisse, Sun Capricorn – b. December 31, 1869

Mars & Saturn

Your ruling planet Saturn is now in Aquarius and your personal money sector where it remains until July 1st. This month, Saturn is joined by action planet Mars making money matters red hot.

When these two planets come together, as they did on March 31st, you know that this is an area of your life which needs your attention.

Mars remains close to Saturn until the 11th which could feel pressured for you. You may have to make some tough choices because of money. Saturn can sometimes coincide with lack or hardship.

However, this combination is also full of determination and a survival instinct. And, once Mars is able to move more freely, then you can get motivated and set new plans in motion fast.

The date to avoid for anything new is the 7th when Mars clashes with unpredictable Uranus. This could coincide with frustration around your current situation and it does feel like a boiling pot ready to explode. Rein in your desire to be impulsive and wait for better stars to get ahead.

Work & Next Steps

Plus, there is strong emphasis throughout April on your work and money sectors. The Full Moon on the 8th falls in Libra and your career and vocation sector.

Full Moons are about culmination, things coming to completion. They are a great time to make key decisions and balance your head and heart in making the right move.

Also, Venus, the planet of relating is in Gemini and your work and health sector from the 3rd onwards. Venus remains here for an unusually long time until August 7th. This is because Venus will turn retrograde, i.e. be on go slow, from next month.

Venus in Gemini is about teamwork, coming together with other people to make your life easier. The air signs – Gemini, Libra, Aquarius – are all about communication and collaboration.

Find new and innovative ways to work together with other people and lean on your girlfriends – Venus rules women – to seek enjoyment in these unprecedented times. Ensure you have enough people around you who offer you new ideas and bring laughter and good advice into your life.

The Venus-Saturn trine aspect on the 4th is gorgeous for starting an online initiative or getting or offering the right kind of support.

Home & Family

Home and family affairs are also a key part of your month ahead, not surprisingly for many people, yourself included. The Sun is in Aries down at the base of your horoscope until the 19th and talk planet Mercury is in Aries from the 11th to the 27th.

Therefore, it’s at home where there’s a sense of the new, keeping the lines of communication open, finding new ways to live and work together.

The 11th is a key date in this respect, also the weekend of the 18th/19th. You might be bringing family together online. Or, work alongside other people in your local community. Either way, there’s a sense of collaboration and staying connected.

Jupiter Pluto Conjunction

You may also be taking on a prominent role this month, whether in a work situation or at home or in your community. This is because of the major Jupiter-Pluto conjunction which falls in Capricorn on the 5th.

This powerful combination takes place twice more throughout 2020 on June 30th and November 12th and this is the backdrop to your year, the theme of the year.

Jupiter and Pluto together are a power duo, linked to wealth and transformation. Ultimately, they represent rebirth and renewal, digging deep to transform your current situation.

Jupiter rules truth and justice and Pluto was God of the Underworld. You may step into a leadership role during this period or feel compelled to use your voice to bring about change.

This does also expose you to the dark side of life. Some of you may be dealing with difficult or challenging situations. Pluto turns retrograde in Capricorn on the 25th, so this adds intensity to this month’s astrology.

It’s unlikely that you’ll be the same person at the end of this journey as you were starting out. Pluto is the planet linked to self analysis and personal development.

Earth Sign Joy

It is important too to find joy and pleasure where you can. The Sun enters Taurus and your fellow earth sign on the 19th followed by Mercury on the 27th. Taurus rules romance in your horoscope, children & pregnancy, entertainment, creative projects and luck.

Uranus is strong in Taurus on the day of the New Moon, the 23rd, again on the 26th and 31st (May 1st in some countries). Therefore, things could happen fast in these areas. You may want to take more risks than usual, to ring the changes, to turn life around.

Keep close tabs on the ones you love and, when necessary, step in without being over-controlling. These are fast and furious times we live in and the key is to know when to use your power and how to use it for good effect.

Sagittarius April Horoscope 2020

Wassily Kandinsky, Sun Sagittarius – b. December 16, 1866

Fire Sign Aries

The Sun is in your fellow fire sign Aries until the 19th and is joined by talk planet Mercury from the 11th to the 27th. This is good news for you as fire signs are your element, naturally spontaneous, lively and ready for action.

Maybe, you can’t be pro-active in the way you would like right now. Yet, you can still find joy and pleasure in life and practise gratitude for what you have.

Maybe, you are one of the leaders helping people find their way forward and focussing on the positives in our current situation. Your star sign is ruled by Jupiter, the planet of opportunity. If you’re a typical Sagittarius, you’re a philosopher and you seek the meaning in the bigger picture.

Aries rules children & pregnancy in your horoscope, also creative projects and entertainment. Aries is a star sign that likes to start things, to be impulsive and take risks. You may find new ways of enjoying yourself and expressing your skills & talents during the month ahead. It’s a good time to focus on your children if you’re a parent and find new ways to help keep them motivated and positive.

Love Vibes

Also, Aries rules romance in your horoscope. Plus, on the 3rd, Venus, the planet of relating, enters Gemini and your relationship sector. Venus will remain in your opposite star sign until August 7th, an unusually long time as Venus turns retrograde next month, i.e. will be on go slow.

Mercury in Aries and Venus in Gemini flags up the importance of communication in relationships. If you’re married or in a long-term partnership, keep love as varied and light as you can. Be each other’s best friend. For some of you, romance may flourish in these unprecedented times.

If you’re looking for love, it would be a great month to try online dating. The 4th is a stand-out date for initiating new connections as is the weekend of the 18th/19th. Also, the Full Moon on the 8th falls in the relationship sign, Libra, a key point in the month when emotions are heightened and you want to celebrate life, love and friendship.

This is a time to get to know someone well and your astrology suggests a meeting of minds. It isn’t necessarily a physical connection which could be tricky! Instead, make new friends, reach out, find common ground.

Mars & Saturn

Air signs – Gemini, Libra, Aquarius – dominate throughout April as Mars, the action and passion planet, also moves through Aquarius. Mars in Aquarius is the activist, the accelerator, getting things moving online, bringing people together.

And, Aquarius is your communication sector. You can play your role here, take your business online or join in with community ventures.

As April begins, however, Mars is under Saturn’s rule. These two planets made a powerful conjunction on March 31st. Mars only moves away from Saturn on or around the 11th. This could feel heavy and you may feel down or depressed. Try not to let your mind get the better of you and keep seeking the light.

You may dislike being told what you can and can’t do more than usual and this may not be easy for you. Saturn represents the authorities, the leaders, the government.

Note that you may be feeling especially rebellious on the 7th when Mars clashes with Uranus. This isn’t a good date to speak out of turn as it feels impulsive and volatile.

Uranus & Change

Yet, you will want to bring about change and do things differently in April. This kicks in big-time once the personal planets begin to move into earth sign Taurus.

The Sun is here from the 19th and is joined by Mercury from the 27th. Plus, both planetary bodies connect with the planet of revolution, Uranus, on the 26th and 31st (May 1st in some countries).

This whole combination has the theme of reinvention and Taurus rules your work and your health, your lifestyle and routine. It smacks of online ventures, also starting over. The New Moon on the 23rd would be an ideal date to do so.

Jupiter Pluto Conjunction

There may be urgent reasons why you need to think about doing things differently. Money is one area that’s currently dominant in your horoscope.

Jupiter, your planet, is currently in Capricorn and your personal money sector. However, this is where all the big astrology is taking place so it’s possible that things won’t be playing out the way you want them to.

The Jupiter-Pluto conjunction on the 5th is important in this respect. This is the first of three meetings between these two major planets. They also meet on June 30th and November 12th and act as a backdrop to your year.

Pluto wipes out what it touches. Therefore, for some of you, this could be a time when you see your income disappear and you need to rethink your strategy and fast. Yet, together, Jupiter and Pluto represent rebirth and renewal, change and transformation.

Some people will do extremely well this year as the economy swings wildly. If you are a speculator and you know your way around money, stocks and shares, you could raise your game.

Yet, this is high stakes astrology and the 14th/15th and 25th/26th look especially tricky. Play your cards well during the month ahead. At the very least, ensure you take a hands-on approach to money, work and your next steps.

Scorpio Horoscope April 2020

Georgia O’Keeffe, Sun Scorpio – b. November 15, 1887

Mars’ Motivation

This could turn out to be a big month for you as both your ruling planets, Mars and Pluto, play a significant role. Mars is currently in Aquarius down at the base of your horoscope ruling your home and family, your past and where you come from.

Mars is the planet of action and speed but currently Mars is being held back, limited, repressed by Saturn, also in Aquarius. You couldn’t get a more vivid symbol of lockdown. The conjunction of these two key planets took place on March 31st but Mars is restricted by Saturn until it pulls away on or around the 11th.

Once Mars is able to move freely, then you can start to take the initiative and put your energy into your domestic situation and your family relationships. For some of you, being at home may bring extra challenges. You could be worried about a parent or someone older.

Or perhaps, you find yourself feeling frustrated and hemmed in. Take good care of yourself and do whatever you can to keep your mood upbeat. Focus on other areas where you can channel your energy.

Routine & Health

This is a good month to put time and thought into your routine, your well-being and health. The Sun is in Aries and your work and health sector until the 19th and talk planet Mercury moves here from the 11th to the 27th.

You may have lots of good ideas for keeping your work going, even if things have changed drastically. Keep seeking the new while Aries season is prominent.

This is where there’s a whoosh of planetary energy so find new and innovative things to do, whatever your current situation. It’s important this month to focus on your physical fitness and do what you can to stay strong.

If you’re on the frontline, go about your job, your business with strength and courage. The Full Moon on the 8th is about taking care of yourself and others. Take time out if needed and stop and reassess where you can be most useful.

Money Matters

When it comes to money matters, teamwork is required. Venus, the planet of relating, enters Gemini and your joint finance sector on the 3rd, where it remains until August 7th.

This is an unusually long time for Venus to remain in one sector of the zodiac. This is because Venus turns retrograde, i.e. will be on go slow next month.

Venus is your partner planet so reach out to others for financial help or advice. Keep the lines of communication open when it comes to money. Get your ideas hat on, learn more about what’s happening and ensure you review all your finances. This year will bring challenging times to our economy and the more you’re in the know, the better.

The 4th is a stand-out date in this respect when Venus teams up with Saturn in Aquarius. You may have a long-term vision for your home life, your family, your future security. And, it’s what you set in motion this month that can benefit you greatly in 2021.

Jupiter Pluto Conjunction

The major planetary aspect taking place in April is the Jupiter-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn on the 5th. Pluto’s your co-ruler so this is a powerful combination for you in your communication sector.

Jupiter rules growth and expansion, Pluto is about transformation at its best, also loss. You may be diving deep into the dark side of life or have to confront death or loss in your personal experience. Yet, ultimately this combination is about rebirth and renewal, finding hope (Jupiter) in the darkness (Pluto) and communicating with others to pass on what you know.

You could be a voice for good during this whole experience. Or, a major player within your local community or within society. It’s a classic symbol for teaching wisdom and passing on your experience.

If you feel compelled to write or podcast, go for it. Jupiter and Pluto meet two more times on June 30th and November 12th and this is a backdrop, a theme to your year. It’s a positive time to start a new course of study.

Uranus & Relationships

Finally, this could be a tricky month for relationships. Perhaps, some of what you need to say won’t be received well. You currently have Uranus, the planet of unpredictability and change, in Taurus and your relationship sector.

When Mars and Uranus clash on the 7th, this could coincide with a separation or a falling out. It’s volatile astrology and best to steer clear of anger or conflict.

Taurus begins to dominate after the 19th when the Sun enters this earth sign followed by Mercury on the 27th. The stand out date is the 23rd, the day of the New Moon, a symbol of new beginnings. This New Moon pulls in Uranus, which is active on the 26th and 31st (May 1st in some countries).

As Uranus tends to turn any situation on its head, this could bring exciting developments for love, reconnecting with a lover out of the blue. And yes, Uranus rules technology so more than likely this would be online.

The period from the 25th to the 28th is the hot spot. It may not be easy to get through these few days without a disappointment or a falling out. Try not to be overly impulsive and take a step back if you feel out of control. Decide where your priorities lie and do what’s best for you and your family.

Libra April Horoscope 2020

Mark Rothko, Sun Libra
b. September 25, 1903

Venus In Gemini

Your ruling planet Venus is on the move this month as it enters your fellow air sign Gemini on the 3rd. This is an intriguing transit of Venus for you as Gemini rules your travel sector. Venus remains here until August 7th, an unusually long time to spend in one sign. This is because Venus is to-ing and fro-ing in Gemini and will turn retrograde next month, i.e. will be on go slow.

So, travel plans are going to be chopping and changing! Obviously, as few of us going anywhere, it would be a rare move for you to be actually on the move during our global situation. Yet, you may still be making decisions about cancelling a holiday or trip or working out what to do for the best.

Also, Gemini doesn’t only rule travel but study, learning, knowledge and any activity that broadens your horizons. Being one of the air signs, you have a lively mind. You may be one of the people who responds well to our current crisis and thrives online. The 4th is a great date to commit to a course of study or spend an hour each day enhancing your life through a hobby, skill or talent.

Mars & Saturn

Aquarius rules skills and talents in your horoscope as this is your creative sector. And, there’s key activity here throughout April as Mars, the action planet, is here.

Yet, as the month begins, Saturn is also in Aquarius and there could be frustration early on if you feel held back or restricted. Aquarius rules children and romance in your horoscope, so it may be these areas of your life that are bringing extra challenge your way.

If this is true for you and you’re full on with home schooling, for example, know that any difficulties will start to ease from the 11th onwards as Mars pulls away from Saturn.

It is definitely a great month to use your time well and not allow yourself to get overly distracted. Having a schedule that works for you and brings you a certain amount of regularity and routine will help.

Love & Partnership

Love is definitely intriguing as the Sun remains in your opposite star sign, Aries, until the 19th. Therefore, the cosmic spotlight is on your close relationships, both personal and professional. This is about partnership in your life, an important element for you. You need people around to keep you company, bounce ideas off and with whom you can share your love.

If you are currently on your own or without a partner, this will be a period of great learning in your life, although not always easy. The most important date for love and relationships is the 8th when the Full Moon falls in your star sign Libra.

Full Moons heighten emotions and this Full Moon is about the balance of power when it comes to love. You may want to reach out to someone in your life. Or, you find yourself needing reassurance. Give and receive equally is the motto of this month’s Full Moon.

Talk planet, Mercury, also moves through Aries from the 11th to the 27th so keep the lines of communication open, whether you’re living alongside other people or not. The weekend of the 18th/19th feels especially lively for relationships – perhaps you’re taking part in an online event or creating a house party with people important to you.

Jupiter Pluto Conjunction

It does feel as if this is going to be a significant month for close relationships because of the Jupiter/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. This is a major planetary aspect that takes place this month on the 5th, also on June 30th and November 12th. It’s a backdrop to your year and Capricorn rules your home and family, your past and where you come from.

There may be big changes taking place at home or within your family. It could feel full on trying to keep everyone safe and well. You may find new ways to look after others or expand where you live. It’s a good month to be doing so, as long as you pay close attention to current guidelines.

It would be easy to extend the chain of connections one link too far this month, especially if you’re trying to keep your partner’s family happy as well as your own, for example. Know where you need to stop and don’t fall into the Libra trap of trying to please others.

Money Matters

You may be on a trip down memory lane and pulled back into the past more than usual. Money may be linked to what’s happening at home or with regard to your past and this is another key feature of April’s astrology.

This is because of the emphasis on the star sign, Taurus, ruling money. This is your joint finance sector. Uranus has been here for some time, the planet of unpredictability, wins and losses. Uranus clashes with Mars on the 7th, not a good date for taking a risk or falling out with someone close over money.

Later in the month, there’s more action here as the Sun enters Taurus on the 19th followed by Mercury on the 27th. The key date is the 23rd when there’s a New Moon in your joint finance sector.

This falls next to Uranus – key dates being the 26th and 31st (May 1st in some countries). Expect sudden changes around money, whether a windfall or unexpected expenses. Uranus can go either way.

This is a good time to review your finances and look at new and innovative ways of taking care of your money. Use online resources and stay one step ahead. Find out what’s happening in all areas regarding money and come up with new and creative suggestions to help yourself and other people.

Although, on the 14th/15th and 25th/26th be wary about who’s holding the financial reins and ensure that you’re working alongside one another as a team. This is especially true with regard to your family and/or people you live with.

Virgo April Horoscope 2020

Edward Burne Jones, Sun Virgo
b. August 28, 1833

Mercury & Relationships

Your planet Mercury is picking up the pace in April after its last retrograde phase. This means that for you too, it’s a month to get things moving, as best you can. Up until the 11th, Mercury completes its journey through Pisces and your relationship sector which began in early February.

Therefore, your 1-to-1’s are important as April begins and require your time and attention. Try not to to get pulled into a relationship that doesn’t serve you or lose yourself in your swirling emotions. This is particularly true on or around the 4th when Mercury unites with Neptune, Pisces’ co-ruler.

This combination can be dreamy and romantic or disorienting and confusing. Don’t believe everything you hear, do be around people who inspire you and touch your soul, your spirit.

Aries & Money

On the 11th, Mercury changes star sign and moves into fiery Aries where it remains until the 27th. The Sun is here as well until the 19th so there’s prominent planetary energy in your joint finance sector. This is about money matters and getting things sorted.

If you need to make a key decision about a financial matter, the best day is the Full Moon on the 8th. This is a time when you can trust your intuition and work at balancing the books.

This is particularly important as the Full Moon falls in Libra, the sign of balance. Try not to go it alone when it comes to money but work things out fairly with other people, both personally and professionally.

Also, it’s a good month for initiating new ideas and ventures that can help financially. Aries brings the lure of the new and, right now, that’s what’s needed. Stay positive where you can and make time this month for a financial review. The 11th, 18th and 19th are great dates for financial collaboration.

Mars, Venus & Work

Work is also under the cosmic spotlight throughout April for a number of reasons. Firstly, Mars and Saturn are together in Aquarius and your work and health sector as April gets underway. Mars here is good for motivation and getting things going, whereas Saturn is the opposite principle, i.e. it stops you in your tracks or holds you back.

This may coincide with a job coming to an end. Or perhaps, you’re feeling under the weather. Try not to push too hard or give in to fear or doubt while Saturn’s strong.

You’re best to take your time and wait until Mars moves away from Saturn on or around the 11th. Then, you can begin to pick up on Mars’ motivational influence and work out a new schedule or consider your next steps.

If you’re a typical Virgo, you’ll already prioritise your health and well-being. It’s part of who you are and worth doing while Mars is in Aquarius. Also, what you begin this month, both with regard to work and exercise, could reward you big-time in 2021.

There’s another planetary influence lighting up your career and that planet is Venus. Venus moves into Gemini and your career and vocation sector on the 3rd where she remains until August 7th. This is an unusually long transit of Venus as she turns retrograde next month, i.e. will be on go slow.

For now, this is your cue to find your team and get the right people on your side. Use your connections if you’re looking for work or worthwhile ways to spend your time.

Venus rules women in astrology, so seek out your female friends or women in a position of influence. Gemini’s the communicator. Keep the lines of communication open and focus on your future path, your next steps.

The best date in this regard is the 4th when Venus aligns with Saturn. Get on the right side of someone in a position of authority and you could land a job, new contract or role.

Earth Sign Creativity

Creativity is a big theme for you this month. On the 5th, the Jupiter-Pluto conjunction takes place in Capricorn and your creativity sector. This is the first of three meetings between these two planets. They connect again on June 30th and November 12th and act as a backdrop, a theme to your year.

This could be a good planetary influence for you as this combination brings renewal and transformation. You may be ready to throw yourself into a hobby, skill or talent. It will be something that grabs you completely, an all-consuming desire or passion.

This is also about children and being there for someone 100%, renewing your relationship or recreating what you had previously. The fact that some of you parents will be with your kids full time could be a relevant symbol – finding ways to be together as you’re in each other’s company 24/7. It’s extreme astrology but packed with hidden riches too.

Finally, this month, you are going to have your sights set on what next as April progresses. This is because the Sun enters your fellow earth sign, Taurus, on the 19th followed by your ruler, Mercury, on the 27th. Taurus rules travel in your horoscope so you’re likely to be dreaming of distant horizons.

Yet, this is also about gaining knowledge, studying, finding meaning in the world, pursuing a spiritual path or religion. It’s whatever gives you hope and faith and finding ways to move beyond your everyday routine.

As Uranus is active here – on the 26th and the 31st – there’s an ‘anything goes’ theme. At times, you may find your energy feels scattered, even frantic. Deep breaths if this is true for you. Take life one day at a time and do whatever you can to seek new adventures and keep your spirits high.
