Aries (March 21st - April 19th)
A New Moon coincides with the erratic planet Uranus on April 7 making for an electric start to the month. You are likely to feel restless, itching for change but not sure which direction to take. Imagine an electric wire that has come loose and needs to be earthed again. This is similar to how those with strong Aries feel now. At the start of the month you need to ground yourself. Gardening, walking, swimming or other activities associated with the earthly elements can help. As the month progresses a change is as good as a holiday. You may take a holiday or you may consider starting anew in one or more areas of your life. Your own health and happiness is on the radar. It is time to become the leading lady or man in your own life.
Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)
This month sees you take a back seat while others, perhaps children, shine. It is also possible that a fulfilling project is demanding that you withdraw for a time from society and focus. This is positive month for support of others and completion of goals. At times you may feel restless, wondering if you are on the right track. At these times you need to take a few moments to ground yourself. Everyday tasks such as cleaning or gardening could help, or you may prefer to have one or two pj days, where you close the curtains and withdraw from the world. Either way this is a month for you to replenish your resources – emotional, physical or financial.
Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)
April is a social month during which you mingle with friends and family. Groups, clubs and gatherings take centre stage. Events may change the dynamics of your associations. The New Moon on April 7th is likely to spark some bright ideas about your personal hopes, dreams and wishes. You are likely to feel restless, eager to move forward with your own projects. You may be more scattered and disorganised than usual. During this time you need to focus on your priorities rather than disperse your energy. As the month progresses your ideas begin to take shape.
Cancer (June 21st - July 22nd)
The person closest to you is likely to experience changes that affect your life goals. If you are married then your partner sparks big decisions. If you are single you may meet someone who changes the course of your life. Your profession is also in the spotlight. It is possible that you are itching for changes in your career. On the other hand a surprising event on or around April 7th could prompt changes in your life direction. You need to go with the flow rather than resist changes right now.
Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
Money flows, your self-esteem is high and you are able to see the big picture. You can make plans that lift you out of the humdrum of everyday life. This could be an overseas holiday, a spiritual retreat, pursuing a passion or teaching opportunities. The New Moon in your fellow Fire Sign Aries is likely to give you the impetus to rise above everyday matters and seek adventure. It is also possible that you experience a personal epiphany this month, a realisation that excites and motivates you to discard the past and move forward with your life goals.
Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
April sees you assess how you spend your time, energy and money and make changes. Your investments are likely to come under scrutiny. If you have joint resources then you are likely to make changes. Now is the time to ensure that you are on the right track with shared resources. US President Barack Obama has stated: “Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” This is your month to search within and make the changes.
Libra (September 23rd - October 22nd)
In one way or another your major relationship is the focus during April. It may be that your loved one demands your attention this month or matter connected to your primary partner affect your life. If you are in a committed relationship then your partner’s affairs are likely to be at the hub of your life. If you are single then someone may waltz into your life. Your family and home also ramps up during April. Changes are afoot and with a New Moon in your opposing Zodiac Sign of Aries you may need to indulge yourself so that you can stay balanced. Massages, facials, walks in nature and other pleasurable activities help you stay focussed.
Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)
The time has come to focus on your own health and wellbeing. You need to incorporate positive and uplifting activities into your daily life. Anything from giving up cigarettes to starting meditation can apply. This is the ideal month during which to start new projects that help you focus on healthy habits, improve your everyday work and boost your energy. You need to clear out the clutter in your life and make way for new projects. Your health and wellbeing may add some unexpected costs to the budget and therefore this is a good time to be resourceful. If you tighten the budget now you benefit in the future.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
Your public life is the focus this month. This includes your role at work, in any group or club and your marital status. It is time to be creative, taking each day as it comes in the same way that small children live in the moment. In fact children and other life enhancing fun factors are coming your way. A New Moon in your fellow Fire Sign Aries is likely to spark creative ideas, playful activities and perhaps some latent artistic talents. You can enjoy making changes that increase the pleasure factors. Money matters need some honest assessment. It is time to make changes that really boost your coffers. Otherwise you could see money flow out faster than it flows in.
Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
A New Moon in your Home sector sees family as the focus this month. You benefit from taking time out of your usual duties and spending some time with family members. Even if you live a solitary lifestyle, there are those who you consider close to home. You may be more reclusive than usual because of a project that needs focussed attention or so that you can spend some time on home improvements. The New Moon on April 7th is likely to stir up restless feelings in many. As a steady Capricorn you may need some quiet time alone so that you can stay focussed on what is important.
Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
The start of April is a busy one for the Aquarians of the Zodiac. The New Moon is combining with the planet Uranus and electricity abounds. You are likely to connect with a different set of people. This can be because you take a short trip, change your routine, or start a short training course. On the other hand you may have made up your mind about something that takes you in a different direction. Social circles are changing. If possible you need to escape somewhere quiet, perhaps even take a short break in order to stay focussed and balanced. Quiet reading, walking and swimming can be beneficial.
Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
You may still be feeling the effects of last month’s eclipse which urged you to make changes. Self-worth is the key this month. You are encouraged to pursue activities that boost your personal self-esteem and boost your financial coffers. The two may be linked. The New Moon on April 7th in Aries is in your self-worth and money sector indicating that these matters may be causing you some concern. You need to take a deep breath and relax as much as possible. Let the New Moon pass and make decisions later in the month when your concerns have calmed a little. Then you are ready to know and speak your own mind with clarity and composure.
