Aries April 2018 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


Whether you are a March or an April born Aries this is going to be an important month for you, with the Sun not leaving until the 20th April and your birthday month still playing out until then. This year there is a stronger than ever sense that this is the year where it matters how you start the year, that this is the year when following your personal truth is a must. If this feels like an important solar year it’s because it is and not just because of the major developments unfolding professionally and starting to develop on the income fronts.

In 2010 Uranus returned to Aries for the first time since 1935, with the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected the planet that helps us find our personal truth. Since then Uranus has been working behind the scenes to both point out your most authentic path forward and help you find it. Each year since then the Sun, Mercury and Venus have returned to get your birthday month and new solar year off the ground and in the process touch base with Uranus, making that authentic path forward easier to establish. As they leave the message to Uranus is ‘we’ll see you next year’.

Except there will be no next year, for with Uranus leaving Aries next month it will be another eight decades before you move into a new solar year with this beacon of truth leading the way. It is not a question of needing to get it right this year, for there is no wrong or right and more that this is the year to follow your personal truth. It is next month that Uranus will join the planets just starting to arrive in your income sector this month, where for the next eight years he’ll work with the powerful planets in play on the career front.

Love 2017Aries April 2018 Love Horoscope

The month not so much gets off to a false start but might give an impression of what the whole of the coming month is about, which is not the case. What I am talking about is not only starting the month with the Moon in your relationship sector but with a Full Moon already underway. This is a Full Moon that will always fall at some point during your birthday month and always just before or over Easter. It is, in fact, this Full Moon that defines when Easter will fall each year. This will see the Moon confront the Sun in Aries, bringing your personal and relationship needs into conflict.

This may see the month start with tensions running high on the relationship front and even some tension over Easter. Yet when the Moon leaves your relationship sector on the 2nd April there will be nothing for this to attach itself to and will quickly drop back. By the time the Moon comes full circle from the 27th April to the 29th April Venus, planet of love and guardian of your relationships will be in your communication sector, able to give your emotional responses and relationships a voice. Venus’ return on the 25th April will be good news for your relationships full stop.

Apart from the early and later days of the month, this month is more about matters of the heart and all things romantic. Venus left Aries in the final hours of March, leaving you with clear romantic and relationship desires and expectations for the coming year. This comes just as Ceres is spending her first full month in direct motion in your romantic sector and as the month progresses, romantic forces will only strengthen. A month that starts with all the focus on your relationships, is actually a romantically charged month.

Money 2017Aries April 2018 Money Horoscope

The dynamics of your financial year completely change this month, but not because it shifts from one focus to another and more that another layer has been added that changes everything. Until now the only planet in either of your two money houses has been Jupiter, in your financial sector since last October. With no planetary activity on the income front since mid 2017, the money gods have been able to put all their focus onto your financial situation and money matters and you have been able to do the same. Yet after five months in your financial sector and in his first full month in retrograde motion, Jupiter is ready to take a back seat.

It doesn’t mean that money matters as a whole are no longer important, but in retrograde motion Jupiter allows you to focus more on review, revision and cementing everything in play until now. This leaves space for income matters to have their turn and they will in a way that will eventually eclipse everything that even Jupiter is doing. It was Venus’ return to your income sector on the 31st March that has brought the first real focus on income matters this year and the perfect planet has returned for the job. As the planet of money, but more specifically earned income, Venus is the perfect planet to get the ball rolling.

Until leaving on the 25th April Venus will focus on fuelling your confidence, desires, expectations and a sense of entitlement, along with attracting opportunities. The Sun’s return on the 20th April will see the solar spotlight shift onto your income situation, matters and options while keeping the ball in play after Venus moves on. However, there is no danger of things going off the boil, with Uranus’ return next month changing everything. You haven’t just reached the most potentially lucrative months of 2018, but the most potentially lucrative years in decades.

Career 2017Aries April 2018 Career Horoscope

Any concept of a normal professional year flew out the window when Saturn returned to your career sector just before Christmas. Saturn not only returned for his first visit since he was last here, from 1988 to 1991, but to team up with Pluto here for the first time in our lifetime. Pluto is the planet of change and revolution and Saturn is all about discipline and self control. Yet just as these two very different energies were adjusting to working together, Mars’ return last month added a whole new dynamic.

Slowing down ahead of a retrograde turn that will see Mars return for a double dip visit in August, instead of moving through your career sector in the six weeks this normally takes, the warrior planet of the cosmos is here for two months. Not due to leave until the 16th May, Mars will spend the whole month firing things up professionally. This is a game changer, for with Saturn turning retrograde on the 18th April and Pluto on the 23rd April, this is the month when things should be slowing down.

The month begins with Saturn and Mars aligned until the 3rd April, with a chance to balance Mars’ need for action, with Saturn’s call for restraint. The other game changer has been Venus’ return to your income sector in the final hours of March, with the 1st April her first full day. As the planet of money Venus will always trigger the most potentially lucrative weeks of any year, but even after she leaves on the 25th April things will still be evolving. It is Uranus’ return next month that will kick off the most potentially lucrative years in a decade, the perfect partner for what is now evolving on the career front.
