Libra May Horoscope 2021

As May begins, your ruling planet Venus is in Taurus and the sector of your horoscope which rules joint finances and shared resources. Taurus is one of the earth signs and this turns your attention towards making money, security and putting down roots.

Venus remains in Taurus until the 9th but the Sun is here until the 20th. Most importantly, there’s a New Moon in Taurus on the 11th. This is a symbol of new beginnings and an ideal date to sign a contract or update your finances.

The influence on Taurus in the first half of May is not only about money, but how money flows from one generation to another. You may take a trip into your past or find that the legacy of your past comes your way in the form of a gift or inheritance.

You may meet up with someone from your family or childhood whom you haven’t seen for a long time. Or, perhaps you’re visiting the grave of someone dear to you or taking a pilgrimage.

Broadening Your Horizons

Yet, other important planetary influences kick in this month too. From the 4th onwards, there’s a strong emphasis on your fellow air sign Gemini, ruling travel and distant horizons, learning and knowledge.

Communication planet Mercury is here from the 4th and Venus, your planet, enters Gemini on the 9th. Plus, the Sun completes the trio in Gemini on the 20th.

You may be making plans to travel this summer or be considering a study course or new area of learning. Certainly, it’s the right time to focus on the bigger picture as you have action planet Mars in Cancer and your career and future sector throughout May.

For some of you, things could happen quickly this month, whether you’re starting a new job or taking on a new position of responsibility. Keep thinking what next and consider your qualifications and what will help you in the long-term future.

Lunar Eclipse/Mercury Retrograde

There is some tricky astrology later in the month which is why you’re wise to crack on sooner rather than later. You may need to be super flexible if you’re planning to travel or study. There are two main reasons for this.

Firstly, communication planet Mercury turns retrograde in Gemini on the 29th and remains on go slow until June 22nd. This is invariably a time when your plans change and you have to revise or rework what you want to do.

Secondly, there’s a Full Moon or Lunar Eclipse cutting across the Gemini/Sagittarius axis of the zodiac on the 26th. This eclipse is part of the eclipse cycle which began in June 2020 and lasts until December 2021.

You may already know what this is about in your life, especially if you’re on a new course of study, a spiritual path or you’re teaching others.

Eclipses are rarely easy but they point to where profound change is possible. Sometimes, they close a door on you and you have to find a new door to open.

You may have to retake an exam or you start to feel unsure of your next steps. If you can, allow yourself time and space to wander and dream and seek new experiences.

Being somewhere new or different could bring with it a fresh perspective so don’t become too invested in your plans. Sometimes, life’s diversions work out beautifully.

Jupiter Enters Pisces

The big astrology this month involves big planet Jupiter on the move. On the 14th, Jupiter leaves air sign Aquarius and enters water sign Pisces. Jupiter remains here until July 28th and returns to Pisces at the end of year on December 29th.

Jupiter is the planet of luck and opportunity. It has an expansive and boundless quality that taps into your desire to escape everyday reality and experience more bliss in your life.

Work gets more than a look-in once Jupiter enters Pisces as this influences your work and routine, your lifestyle and your health. This works well alongside action planet Mars in Cancer and your career and vocation sector.

This could give you an extra boost and some much-needed get-up-and-go. You may find the ideal job that frees up your time or fall in love with volunteering. Or, perhaps you decide to take part in new activities and develop daily habits which boost your health and well-being.

Take notice of the opportunities that come your way mid-month. Play your cards right and your work, health and routine could soon be zinging with life and vitality.

Who Will Win At The Oscars 2021?

Oscars 2021 astrology

Last year, the Oscars were held early on February 9, 2020 apparently in an attempt to shake up the lengthy, expensive campaigns. Maybe they knew something we didn’t?! as this obviously meant the virus wasn’t mainstream news by then.

It did mean that for the first time the Oscars wasn’t taking place during Pisces season, which is the perfect timing for the glamour & glitz of the movies.

This year, the Oscars is happening later than usual in Taurus season, which doesn’t seem quite right but there we are. The big event will reportedly happen in two venues, not one and some of the ceremony will be outdoors. There’ll be a London broadcast hub for the Brit nominees and similar for other countries but they are going to limit Zoom speeches/presentations.

Obviously, most of the movies up for honours were viewed on streaming platforms rather than in cinemas this year. I haven’t seen any of them this year which is unusual. Whether this influences my excellent prediction record remains to be seen.

As, the Arts have been hit badly by the virus/lockdowns, I think it’s fantastic that the Oscars are happening. As they say in showbiz, ‘the show must go on‘.

Oscars’ Astrology

It’s always worth taking a quick look at the symbolism of the astrology for the start of the Oscars’. Wherever you find Jupiter, the biggest & best planet, is important as Jupiter transits promise success.

Aquarius is the star sign of the moment and anyone with key planets/angles on or around 27 Aquarius could do well.

Taurus dominates the chart with the Sun, Venus, Mercury and Uranus all in the sign of the bull. Yet, note Mars on the Midheaven (success point) in Cancer, the most elevated planet in the chart. Mars could indicate a strong Oscars’ season for Aries & Scorpio, Mars’ signs of rulership. It may give a nod to the themes to watch out for – see Best Film below.

The Saturn-Uranus square is being triggered during the weekend by the inner planets so perhaps this will show as technology glitches. And, no doubt some political views on what’s happening around the world.

On with the show…

Best Supporting Actress

  • Maria Bakalova (b. June 4 1996) – Sun Gemini, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm
  • Glenn Close (b. March 19, 1947) – Sun Pisces, Hillbilly Elegy
  • Olivia Colman (b. January 30, 1974) – Sun Aquarius, The Father
  • Amanda Seyfried (b. December 3, 1985) – Sun Sagittarius, Mank
  • Youn Yuh-Jung (b. June 19, 1947) – Sun Gemini, Minari

No times of birth for any of the actresses above, apart from Glenn Close. Two of the actresses are having their Jupiter Return years, always hopeful for a win – Olivia Colman (Jupiter 21 Aquarius) and Amanda Seyfried (Jupiter 12 Aquarius).

Olivia Colman won the Oscar for Best Actress two years ago in 2019 and pushed out the favourite Glenn Close, who has been nominated 8 times but never won. Could it be a repeat scenario? Very possibly. as Olivia also has Mercury at 24 Aquarius, so Jupiter is unusually active for her this year.

However, Glenn Close has her Moon at 23 Aquarius, which we know as she has a timed chart, so Aquarius rules in this category.

I wouldn’t, however, count out Youn Yuh-Jung who won the Bafta in this category. She may be a Gemini but she was born on a Sun-Uranus conjunction and Uranus is Aquarius’ planet. Plus, her Moon may be in early degrees Cancer, which would put it on the Midheaven of the Oscar’s chart.

Astrologer’s Choice: Without a time of birth, I can’t go for Youn Yuh-Jung, who I feel will win it. From an astrology viewpoint, I’m going for Olivia Colman (unless Glenn Close’s isn’t allowed to go home trophy-less again!)

Best Supporting Actor

  • Sacha Baron Cohen (b. October 13, 1971) Sun Libra, The Trial of the Chicago 7
  • Daniel Kaluuya (b. May 8 1981) – Sun Taurus, Judas and the Black Messiah
  • Leslie Odom Jr (b. August 6 1981) – Sun Leo, One Night in Miami
  • Paul Raci (b. April 7 1948) – Sun Aries, Sound of Metal
  • LaKeith Stanfield (b. August 12 1991) – Sun Leo, Judas and the Black Messiah

No times of birth for any of the above actors making it super difficult to find a winner via astrology. Maybe the Sun Aries gets a heads-up because of Mars on the Midheaven of the Oscars’ chart. Paul Raci also has his north node at 15 Taurus so the Venus/Mercury conjunction lights up the karmic point in his chart.

Sacha Baron Cohen was born on a Sun-Uranus conjunction and his Mars is at 18 Aquarius, so there’s a slight nod towards the Aquarius theme.

Two of the actors, Leslie Odom Jr and Daniel Kaluuya have Mars in Cancer and most strikingly for Daniel, his Mars is at 5 Cancer and exactly conjunct the Midheaven of the Oscars’ chart.

Astrologer’s Choice: Not great astrology to choose from but maybe the Mars’ signature might be enough for Daniel Kaluuya to mirror his Bafta win.

Best Actress

  • Viola Davis (b. August 11 1965) – Sun Leo, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom
  • Andra Day (b. December 30 1984) – Sun Capricorn, The United States vs. Billie Holiday
  • Vanessa Kirby (b. April 18 1988) – Sun Aries, Pieces of a Woman
  • Frances McDormand (b. June 23 1957) – Sun Cancer, Nomadland
  • Carey Mulligan (b. May 28 1985) – Sun Gemini, Promising Young Woman

Again, no times of birth for any of the actresses. Four of them have Aquarius planets – Viola Davis – Moon Aquarius (no degree because of no birth time); Andra Day – Venus 24 Aquarius – nice; Vanessa Kirby – Mars 7 Aquarius; Carey Mulligan – Jupiter 16 Aquarius – her Jupiter Return year.

The only one who doesn’t is Frances McDormand who won the Bafta. Her Sun is at 1 Cancer so Mars is slap bang on it. Plus, she has her Moon in Taurus but we don’t know the degree because no time of birth! If it’s at 9-10 Taurus and triggered by Uranus, that’s a win in my book.

Astrologer’s Choice: I think this category is between Frances McDormand and Carey Mulligan. I think Carey might just sneak it.

Best Actor

  • Riz Ahmed (b. December 1 1982) – Sun Sagittarius, Sound of Metal
  • Chadwick Boseman (b. November 29 1976) – Sun Sagittarius, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom
  • Anthony Hopkins (b. December 31 1937) – Sun Capricorn, The Father
  • Gary Oldman (b. March 21 1958) – Sun Aries, Mank
  • Steven Yeun (b. December 21 1983) – Sun Sagittarius, Minari

Two times of birth in this category – Anthony Hopkins and Gary Oldman. Plus, three Sagittarians. Out of those three, Riz Ahmed was born on a Sun/Uranus conjunction, the best signature for the Oscars’ chart.

Gary Oldman is a Sun Aries and has two planets in Aquarius, Venus & Mars but not within orb of Jupiter. Yet, the ‘oldie’, Anthony Hopkins is having his Uranus Return – bonkers! – yes, his Uranus is at 9 Taurus.

The favourite is Chadwick Boseman to win posthumously as he sadly passed away last year. Without a time of birth, there’s nothing to back that up in the astrology.

Astrologer’s Choice: I have to go for Anthony Hopkins on his Uranus Return!

Best Director

  • Thomas Vinterberg (b. May 19 1969) – Sun Taurus, Another Round
  • David Fincher (b. August 28 1962) – Sun Virgo, Mank
  • Lee Isaac Chung (b. October 19 1978) – Sun Libra, Minari
  • Chloé Zhao (b. March 31 1982) – Sun Aries, Nomadland
  • Emerald Fennell (b. October 1 1985) – Sun Libra, Promising Young Woman

Two women in this category – hoorah! The last and only time a woman won Best Director was 2010 – Kathryn Bigelow for The Hurt Locker.

I’m itching for a woman to win again and they both have a great chance. Of the three male directors, David Fincher’s astrology looks promising. It’s his second Saturn Return year – Saturn at 6 Aquarius and his Mars is at 4 Cancer.

Emerald Fennell has her Jupiter Return year – always great news – and her Jupiter is at 7 Aquarius. Yet, it’s Chloe Zhao, the favourite who zings nicely with the Oscar’s chart. A Sun Aries, her Moon probably in Cancer and she has Venus at 23 Aquarius so Jupiter’s her friend.

Astrologer’s Choice: No times of birth for any of the five directors but I’m willing Chloe Zhao to be the second woman to win Best Director.

Best Picture

  • The Father
  • Judas and the Black Messiah
  • Mank
  • Minari
  • Nomadland
  • Promising Young Woman
  • Sound of Metal
  • The Trial of the Chicago 7

Mars in Cancer on the Midheaven is the stand-out signature of the chart, so you’re looking for family themes, homes, etc. You could probably make a case for some of the other movies as an astrological symbol doesn’t mean just one thing – it could also be about race, Cancer being the clan, the tribe.

As I haven’t watched any of the movies – not great! – I’m having to rely on internet synopses. I like them in this order, 1. Nomadland, 2. Minari and 3. The Trial of the Chicago 7.

Full Moon Scorpio: Super Pink Moon

FULL MOON [7 Scorpio 06]

April 27 2021 (04:32 GMT+1))

The next Full Moon falls in Scorpio and Full Moon energy is already kicking in. It’s gearing up to be a highly-charged weekend – keep reading to find out why.

This is the first of three Super Moons in a row, all of which have super cosmic names. This one is ‘Super Pink Moon‘ on April 27th, then comes ‘Super Flower Blood Moon Eclipse‘ on May 26th and finally ‘Super Strawberry Moon‘ on June 24th.

These are the closest Full Moons to earth this year and if you love gazing at the Moon, you know how stunning a Full Moon can be. The best time to bask in the beauty of these Super Moons is just after moonrise.

Full Moon Energy

The Moon reaches its peak during the Full Moon phase. Full Moons are a time when emotions are heightened and important matters can be brought to completion. If you like to work with the energy of the moon, this is the time to look at what you want to release and let go of.

Full Moons are often linked to pregnancy and giving birth. They are a time of celebration, also clarity when the light of the Full Moon shines brightly. Trust your female intuition and tap into your witchy knowingness.

Full Moon Scorpio

This is important because during this Full Moon, the Moon is in the deep & dark water sign, Scorpio, linked to healing, regeneration & transformation.

Scorpio rules sex, money, death & rebirth and all things taboo. It’s about the psyche and what’s hidden. Scorpio’s keyword is power, whether you use it for good or bad effect. We’re hanging out in the underworld, the night world when we’re in Scorpio’s domain.

In Scorpio, you can enter into the dark, untouched places releasing emotions that have been hidden away or ignored. You encounter the shadow side of life. By digging deep, you find the part of yourself that’s fearless, authentic and real.

This is not always a comfortable place to be. Yet, if you are a Scorpio or have Scorpio planets in your chart, you may already know that a journey through the underworld can unearth hidden riches.

When you explore and embrace all of life, the dark as well as the light, you often emerge wiser and stronger for the experience.

Pluto Retrograde

Pluto is co-ruler of Scorpio and turns retrograde at 26 Capricorn on the same day as the Full Moon. This adds intensity to the Full Moon picture.

Pluto’s move through Capricorn since 2008 has been breaking down established structures, urging us to change the way we do business, govern, lead, use power. It’s brought corruption into world governments, as Pluto is linked to the underworld.

Pluto’s shift of direction turns your attention inwards and backwards. Let go of things that aren’t working out, move away from anything or anyone toxic in your life. Ditch old emotions and habits that no longer serve you.

Cycle of Life & Death

The cycle of life and death is clearly shown through the opposite signs of Taurus and Scorpio. During this Full Moon, the Sun is in the earth sign Taurus linked to nature and growth and the Moon is in the water sign Scorpio linked to death, also rebirth. Regeneration, compost, the eternal cycle of life and death which is never-ending.

The Full Moon in Scorpio can highlight where you need to be healed and where best to channel your own healing abilities. You might uncover issues around power or where you feel powerless. You might discover where you’re in control and where you can tap into your inner power to accomplish incredible feats.

This is the perfect opportunity to make an important decision and trust your intuition in doing so. At the Full Moon it’s about doing what “feels” right rather than what you think you should be doing. Although, ideally it’s a time to balance head and heart. Be confident and stand strong in your power.

The Full Moon of Awakening

There’s another significant aspect to this Full Moon which comes from the planet Uranus. Uranus is currently in earth sign Taurus and is close to the Sun in Taurus during the Full Moon.

Uranus makes conjunctions to the inner planets on the following dates: Venus – 23rd April; Mercury – 24th April & the Sun – 30th April. The Full Moon on April 27th is the peak of this planetary energy.

Uranus words are change, revolution, rebellion, awakening, enlightenment, surprise, invention, innovation. The planet of upheaval in earth sign Taurus is the earth shaker.

As Taurus is the star sign that rules money, watch out for some big swings on the financial stage during this Full Moon. There are no guarantees with Uranus as it’s either an upward swing or a downward trajectory – rarely stable.

Saturn Square Uranus

Yet, it’s not just about Uranus during this Full Moon because Saturn and Uranus remain in square aspect throughout 2021.

There are key dates when they perfect their clash or conflict – February 17th, June 14th & December 24th. They are, however, at loggerheads all year – this is the major aspect of 2021 and it’s being triggered right now.

You can look at this symbolism in different ways as a symbol never just means one thing. Saturn is the ruler, the authorities, the government; Uranus is impulse, the rebel, the urge for freedom.

Currently, Saturn is stronger in its sign of rulership Aquarius. Around the world, governments are declaring new rules & regulations and exerting control.

There’s always a danger of fascism when Saturn is in Aquarius, the sign of the collective. You only need to look back to 1933 to see what’s possible when Saturn is here. Look around the world and freedom is under threat in many countries.

One way the Saturn-Uranus square is playing out is the freedom movement & anti-vaxxers (Uranus) up against the rest of society & the governments (Saturn Aquarius).

It may be no coincidence there’s to be a march ‘Unite For Freedom‘ on April 24th in London tapping in to the Uranian planetary energy. You may know of more protests happening around the world this weekend.

You could say that this clash also pits the scientific establishments (Saturn Aquarius) against a different kind of truth and knowingness, one that’s inherent within the Earth (Taurus) and that our ancestors knew all about.

Astrology, animism and various other religions and beliefs were evident pre-science. Human beings were constantly listening to the world, to nature. They cared for the Earth that nurtured and cared for them in return.

The danger with Uranus in Taurus is that Uranus splits off and we become detached and disconnected from Mother Earth, the planet we live on. Technology takes over and we forget our interconnectedness with the universe. Fear kicks in (Saturn) and we lose our innate wisdom and inner knowledge.

Football Rules

Looking ahead to this Full Moon, it was obvious this was going to be a major event, from a financial perspective and with regard to different factions clashing. Or, perhaps it will play out in other ways we don’t yet know about.

One way that this strong planetary energy has shown itself in the world is via football. On April 18th, it was announced there would be a Super League – 12 top teams playing their own elite league – an initiative decided by top clubs and their owners, basically to make more money.

Saturn is the people at the top, the big boys, the fat cats – there seemed to be no negotiation around their decision, it was final.

What they didn’t expect was the backlash from the fans who were rightly outraged across the board. This is Uranus’ energy strong and true, people power, fighting back against rules & regulations that don’t serve the greater good.

There were so many fans who protested against the Super League, along with some of the players and managers, celebrity voices, even FIFA that, come April 20th, the whole deal crashed.

That’s people power for you and a strong showing of what’s possible with this square aspect and how Uranus can dominate that authoritarian Saturn in its sign of rulership Aquarius.

It’s going to be an interesting year and we may discover more about what’s possible during this Full Moon, a Super Pink Moon, in Scorpio.

What Does It Mean For You

Here are the areas highlighted by this Full Moon. Read your Sun sign and your Ascendant sign if you know it:

  • Aries – personal finances, possessions, self-worth  other peoples’ money, money owed
  • Taurus – image, self-identity, personal goals  relationships, contracts, enemies
  • Gemini – retreat, secrets, self-undoing  work, service, health
  • Cancer – friends, groups, society  children, creativity, romance
  • Leo – career, status, responsibility  home, family, past
  • Virgo – travel, study, exploration  communication, neighbours, siblings
  • Libra – other peoples’ money, money owed  personal finances, possessions, self-worth
  • Scorpio – relationships, contracts, enemies  image, self-identity, personal goals
  •  Sagittarius – work, service, health  retreat, secrets, self-undoing
  •  Capricorn – children, creativity, romance  friends, groups, society
  • Aquarius – home, family, past  career, status, responsibility
  • Pisces – communication, neighbours, siblings, local neighbourhood  travel, study, exploration

Remember that the Full Moon is an opposition so it’s about balancing the different areas of your life, how you allow them to complement each other and work together in unison, rather than create division or enmity.

Wishing you a wonderfully safe & happy Super Full Pink Moon

The Queen & Her Prince

Prince Philip, the Queen, Moon-Neptune

It was announced today, April 9, 2021, that Prince Philip died peacefully this morning, a couple of months shy of his 100 year birthday. He was born on June 10, 1921.

It’s an extraordinary age and an extraordinarily long union and marriage with Queen Elizabeth. They met in 1939 and had known one another for 82 years. They had been married for 73 years. Some of us are lucky to reach the age of their marriage let alone their epic union.

Gemini-Taurus

So, what held these two extraordinary individuals together for so long. In classic sun sign compatibility, they were an odd pair – Sun Taurus (Queen), Sun Gemini (Philip).

Taurus is steady and stable and loves nature and all things country. While, Gemini is flighty and fickle and loves variety in life and the buzz of the city.

Yet, they remained together for a very, very long time. What may have helped is that they both had Capricorn rising, so Saturn was their ruling planet – duty & responsibility.

Moon Leo

Looking at the key synastry between their charts, it’s all about the Moon. They both have Cancer, the family sign, on their Descendant, the relationship point on the chart. Therefore, they are both looking for someone who holds family dear to their heart.

In both cases, the Moon was in Leo when they were born, the regal sign. In Philip’s case, he ended up with a royal partner and in the Queen’s case, she ended up with a man who was destined for royalty, like it or not.

Rather remarkably, if you look at the key connection between both their birth charts, it’s a Moon-Neptune conjunction that works both ways. The Queen’s Moon is at 12 Leo, Philip’s Neptune at 11 Leo. Philip’s Moon is at 22 Leo, the Queen’s Neptune at 22 Leo.

This is quite extraordinary synastry – there’s that word again, extraordinary. And, it had to be didn’t it for their relationship to survive so long with two obviously very different characters – if you haven’t watched The Crown, check it out.

Moon-Neptune conjunctions in synastry can be incredibly romantic or magical or destined or meant to be. It smacks of a fairy-tale marriage.

Yet, there’s a flip side which is to have your needs met never quite materialises or what you need or what gives you comfort always remains a little bit elusive.

It’s an idealistic combination and there’s a nod towards serving the greater good rather than getting your own needs met.

I do love that connection though between the two of them – and when you know someone for 82 years!!!! – yes, it’s worth that many exclamation marks, how remarkable was their connection.

Uranus Return

The Queen & Prince Philip were in each other’s lives for almost a whole Uranus Return, which lasts for 84 years. Impulsive Uranus was in Taurus in 1939, the year they met and it’s in Taurus once again as Philip leaves the Queen. It’s going to be a life-changing epoch for her.

Mercury & Mars: Mutual Reception

Mercury Aries

On April 4th, Mercury enters Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, and one of the fire signs. Fire sign motivation, joy & spontaneity was missing from January 8th to March 20th. The inner planets are currently making up for this as they leap into Aries.

This is a good time of the year to put yourself first and do whatever you need to gear yourself up and get motivated. Mercury in Aries is about speaking up and making things happen.

If you know someone with Mercury in Aries, you may notice that they speak extra fast or learn at top speed. You too may be getting ready to initiate something new. Do whatever feels right for you once Mercury is in Aries – Aries is the ‘me first’ sign – do it your way.

Mercury is currently moving at top speed through the zodiac and only remains in Aries for two weeks until April 19th.

Mars Gemini

Action planet Mars is currently in Gemini, Mercury’s star sign. When key planets are in mutable star signs, there’s a theme of change. A willingness to be flexible & adaptable, to be open to whatever comes along. Plus, mutable signs are about moving on, letting go, leaving behind.

Mars in Gemini is motor mouth, the fast talker, full of ideas and thoughts. This energy is brilliant for brainstorming, networking, multi-tasking and reaching out to others.

Mutable star signs aren’t rigid or fixed. Instead, they are open-minded and move through life freely. Anything is possible and they like to find solutions to problems.

Mutual Reception

Once Mercury enters Aries, action planet Mars and talk planet Mercury are in mutual reception. This means that they are in the other planet’s sign of rulership and can work together. Mars rules Aries and Mercury rules Gemini – they’re doing a swap.

From April 4th to 19th, look out for the person who appears in your life, a ‘fix it’ person, someone who can help you resolve a situation and fast. This combination is about working alliances, finding the right contacts & connections to help you make progress & fast.

While Mercury & Mars are working together, this is your opportunity to walk (Mars) your talk (Mercury) and do (Mars) what you say (Mercury). Don’t hang about, however, as this helpful alliance is only active for the next two weeks.

The post Mercury & Mars: Mutual Reception appeared first on Sally Kirkman Astrologer.

Aquarius Horoscope April 2021

It’s a lively start to April. The Sun is in fire sign Aries and your communication sector until the 19th. Venus, the planet of relating, is here until the 14th and talk planet Mercury is in Aries from the 4th to the 19th.

Fast Talk

Aries is a speedy sign, forthright and direct. Therefore, it might be hard to hold back this month, especially when Mercury is in Aries. Instead, you’re ready to speak up and find your voice.

Community matters as both Mercury and Venus are social planets. If you’re looking to network or sell, think about how you can tap in to your local community to find contacts and connections.

Together you’re stronger is a key theme of the social planets moving through Aries. Make new friends on or off-line, find your tribe and get together with people of like minds. Aries is the activist and your star sign Aquarius is humanitarian – make your mark.

It’s also important to notice who or what is holding you back. This is because of the planet Pluto which is the last of the slower-moving planets dragging its heels through Capricorn, the most hidden sector of your horoscope.

Pluto’s active on the 12th, 16th & 17th when it clashes with the inner planets in Aries. This coincides with a New Moon on the 12th, a symbol of new beginnings. Therefore, you need to ask what’s coming to an end or where you have to close the door on the past before you can start afresh.

Pluto’s influence can be useful if you harness it constructively and focus on personal development and inner transformation. In this way, you may get rid of negative thoughts that hold you back.

You could encounter opposition from other people during this period in the month. If so, choose your companions wisely and veer away from anyone who drags you down.

It’s one thing to be there for other people and help when you can. It’s another to end up feeling swamped by another’s person’s challenging emotions. It’s important this month to pay close attention to your own energy levels and do what you can to raise your positive vibes.

The 10th could be a key date in this respect when talk planet Mercury aligns with your ruling planet Saturn in your star sign Aquarius.

Making the right kind of connections can help you to feel more grounded or stable. Have those all-important serious discussions and be thorough in your reading, learning and research.

Play Time

For a good part of this month, the focus is on play rather than work and it’s here where you’re wise to focus your energy. This is because action planet Mars is in Gemini and your fellow air sign until the 23rd.

Gemini highlights the sector of your horoscope that rules romance and love affairs, children and pregnancy, entertainment and fun. You might feel at your best when you’re involved in high jinks and good times, so make the most of Mars’ move through Gemini and throw yourself into life. Do more of what you love.

If you’re looking for love, events could move swiftly this month, especially when Mercury and Mars are in mutual reception from the 4th to the 19th. This means they are in each other’s sign of rulership and working together. This would be a good time to ask someone out on a date and start talking.

There’s humour and lightness in this combination so seek more laughter and comedy and be around people who are good for you. Children are included here, younger people, teenagers. Line up some social events, reach out to others.

This is not a month to go it alone. Instead, there are huge benefits from teaming up with others, whether in the name of a good cause or to further your own interests, your own learning.

If you’re a typical Aquarius, you navigate towards groups and playing your part within society, activism, politics, the world. This is where fulfilment, purpose and meaning can be found.

Home & Family

Home and family affairs become more prominent as the month progresses. Venus, the planet of relating, enters Taurus and this sector of your horoscope on the 14th, followed by the Sun & Mercury on the 19th.

Taurus is a slow, steady earth sign encouraging you to put down roots and do what you can to feel grounded and secure. It’s a key period in the year to pay more attention to loved ones.

Yet, there’s a theme of the new when it comes to these areas of your life and this is because of your co-ruler, Uranus. Uranus in Taurus is an odd combination as Uranus represents change and Taurus wants and needs roots in life.

Uranus is active this month from the 23rd to the 30th. Your living situation could change suddenly during this period. Or, perhaps you choose to move into a commune or a collective living space. When Uranus is in the mix, anything goes and you’re more likely to enjoy an unconventional or alternative style of living.

During this same period of the month, your traditional ruling planet Saturn is involved and square to the inner planets in Taurus. This mirrors the major planetary aspect of 2021 – Saturn square Uranus.

It suggests that you have one foot in the past and one foot in the future but there’s conflict between the two. Ideally, you want to move forward and embrace progress without throwing out or getting rid of what’s of value and what’s already in place. It may feel like a tricky tightrope to walk, especially on or around the 25th.

Career Crossroads

Finally, new developments at work could be one reason why you’re thinking of or changing where you live. This is because action planet Mars moves into Cancer and your work and lifestyle sector on the 23rd. Plus, a few days later, the Full Moon falls in Scorpio and your career sector on the 27th.

This feels lively, thanks to Uranus. See what opportunities come your way and think outside of the box when it comes to your career and vocation.

You might find yourself at a crossroads and have more than one option ahead of you. If anything, you’re likely to choose the path which gives you more freedom and space in your life. Yet, it may also mean saying goodbye to something or someone which isn’t easy to do.

Pisces Horoscope April 2021

April’s astrology is forward-moving on the whole and you’re wise to get in flow and in step with this feeling of progress.

This is particularly important for you when it comes to work and money matters. Talk planet Mercury is the last of the inner planets to leave your star sign Pisces on the 4th when it’s time to focus less on personal projects and more on your impact out in the world.

Money Matters

As April begins, there are two planets in Aries and your personal money sector – the Sun until the 19th and the planet of relating, Venus, until the 14th.

From the 4th to the 19th, they are joined by talk planet, Mercury. This combination is quick and speedy. Aries isn’t a star sign that procrastinates or stops to think. Instead, this is about cracking on with what needs to be done.

Home and family affairs may be one reason why money is more important or urgent right now. Action planet Mars is in Gemini and your home and family sector until the 23rd. More importantly, Mercury in Aries and Mars in Gemini are working together from the 4th to the 19th.

This is because these two initiating planets are working in mutual reception. This means they are in each other’s sign of rulership, a helpful and supportive influence. Line up new goals with your family this month and find ways to pool resources or help one another out financially.

You may earn money via your home, whether this includes having a clear out and selling unwanted items or moving in with someone to lower costs. Consider all your options and act swiftly to take advantage of new ideas or opportunities.

Act fast to get things moving with regard to home and family affairs. Sort out important correspondence and have those key conversations, the ones that really matter and make a difference.

Be careful, however, around people who aren’t on your side or who put you down. Pluto’s currently slowing down in Capricorn and your friendship and group sector ready to turn retrograde on the 27th. Before then, Pluto clashes with the inner planets in Aries on the 12th, 16th & 17th.

This coincides with a New Moon in Aries on the 12th, a symbol of new beginnings. You may have to say goodbye to someone or something on or around this date. There’s a theme of endings before you can start over.

And, it’s a good time to keep close tabs on your money and not get involved in anything underhand or corrupt.

Notice who’s helpful in your life and who’s not. Move away from a group, club or society if it doesn’t fit your needs or support your personal growth. Trust yourself and your own money-making initiatives and gravitate towards those people who will back your plans.

Community Goals

Life close to home could get busier from mid-month onwards, when you’re wise to focus on your community. This is when the inner planets begin to move into earth sign Taurus. Venus is the first on the 14th followed by the Sun & Mercury on the 19th.

Taurus rules your siblings and neighbours, your neighbourhood and local surroundings. This is your communication sector and you may find there’s lots to talk about from mid-April onwards.

You could make an effort to find out more about the people in your life, people you see on a daily basis. Taurus’ nature is kind and nurturing. By creating close connections with others, you not only help them but it can benefit your own life too. Reach out to others once Taurus is the sign of the moment.

This is your communication sector so consider what this means for you and how or why you want to speak up or say more. You might sign up to a public speaking course, write in to your local paper or start teaching a class from home. You may choose to help others, either personally or professionally and it’s an ideal time to find your voice.

Online Communications

Online communications are well-starred and this is because of the role of Uranus in Taurus, the planet of change. Uranus rules all things new and modern and is linked to technology.

Uranus is active this month from the 23rd to the 30th. These are dates when you may leap into action & things happen fast. Sometimes, Uranus can lead you down an unexpected path or take you on a diversion.

The Full Moon dominates on the 27th and lights up the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac. This is the time to broaden your horizons, expand your learning, think and research. Some people in your life could have a deep effect upon you during this Full Moon period.

Love & Passion

Finally, love could bring adventure your way towards the end of April. This is because passion planet, Mars, enters Cancer and your romance sector on the 23rd.

The period around the Full Moon feels especially passionate. Mars is adding heat to your close relationships. Whether it is passion or anger that ignites may depend on your current situation. Know that you have Mars in this part of your horoscope throughout May and for the first half of June.
