Gemini April 2018 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


At the same time that things are settling down professionally, they are also settling down financially, though in both cases to a whole new normal. The Sun, Venus and Mercury’s departure from your career sector last month will always take the spotlight off your career and professional situation, matters and options, but  with Chiron here since 2010 and Neptune since 2012, things never completely go off the boil. This year you have Jupiter in your work sector for the first time in 12 years, but in retrograde motion he is not pushing things.

On both the job and career fronts this is a chance to regroup and with Chiron finally leaving on the 17th April, to shift the focus from laying old professional demons to rest and more onto chasing your dreams. However, with Neptune here until 2026 and Jupiter in retrograde motion in your work sector until July, the two planets driving your professional year are in no hurry. This not only creates an opportunity to pull back professionally, but personally as well.

While the month long wind down of your old solar year doesn’t begin until the Sun returns to a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart on the 20th April, Venus will start the month here. Until she returns to Gemini on the 25th April, Venus is taking your heart on a nostalgic trip down memory lane. Yet this is more than a chance to embrace old memories, with Venus making time out to relax and recharge your batteries enjoyable. With Saturn turning retrograde in your financial sector on the 18th April and Pluto on the 23rd April, Mars will keep money matters moving, even here there is a call to pull back and regroup.

Love 2017Gemini April 2018 Love Horoscope

A month that starts with the Moon in your romantic sector is obviously off to a good start, but with a Full Moon underway as the month begins is a chance for the love gods to reclaim some of their power. It was last month that Mars not only left your relationship sector, but wrapped up over three years of near continuous planetary activity. This included Saturn’s three year relationship boot camp from December 2014 to December 2017. From Mars’ return to your relationship sector in September 2014 to his departure in March 2018, note not the same visit but the only time there wasn’t any planetary activity was 16 days, between the 11th January and the 27th January this year.

Quite frankly the love gods are tired of being sidelined and are ready for their turn. With no planets in your relationship sector there will be less pressure on you and your relationships, so even without any romantic influence this month was going to feel freer and lighter. You’ll have a chance to give your relationships any attention they might need when the Moon moves through your relationship sector from the 4th April to the 7th April. Yet starting the month with the Moon in your romantic sector and a Full Moon underway is not the only leverage the love gods have.

The Full Moon on the 1st April coincides with Venus, planet of love’s first full day in a nostalgic part of your chart and of a 25 day nostalgic trip down love’s memory lane. A romantically charged Full Moon is the perfect way to start this romantic journey back through the past. Yet by the time the Moon comes full circle, returning to your romantic sector from the 27th April to the 29th April, new doors will be open. For it is just two days earlier that Venus, planet of love will return to Gemini on the 25th April.

Money 2017Gemini April 2018 Money Horoscope

With Venus not returning to your income sector until next month and the Sun and Mercury not returning until June, it is too early in the year for the money gods to turn their attention onto income matters. However, with some powerful forces in play on the job and career fronts, there is so much untapped income potential being created that all it will take is a trigger. Venus’ return next month will definitely do that, but pay attention as the Moon moves through your income sector from the 21st April to the 23rd April. If this doesn’t trigger unexpected income developments, at the least this will sharpen your nose for money and give you a lucrative sense of direction.

For now, the focus is still on your financial situation and money matters, but even here this is to a much greater degree than you would normally expect at this time of year. With Pluto in your financial sector from 2008 to 2024 money matters will never entirely go off the boil, but Saturn’s return just before Christmas has already made this one of your most powerful financial years in decades. Yet with Saturn turning retrograde on the 18th April and Pluto on the 23rd April, this was going to see money matters slow right down.

That will still be the case to a degree and especially where there is a need for review or you need to spend time back at the drawing board. Yet where he can Mars, in his first full month in your financial sector, will continue to fire things and push money matters forward. You start the month with Mars and Saturn aligned and that will give you a better sense of how to balance Mars’ need for action and Saturn’s need for restraint. The Moon will not only move through your financial sector from the 7th April to the 9th April but will align with all three planets, giving you a better sense of how to play things.

Career 2017Gemini April 2018 Career Horoscope

The Sun’s departure from your career sector last month is something that will happen at that time every year, taking the solar spotlight off your professional game as his month long visit wraps up. Yet unlike other areas of your chart, even though Venus and Mercury had left weeks before the Sun, on the career front things never completely go off the boil or at least that has been the case since 2003. It was in 2003 that Uranus returned to your career sector and while he left in 2010, Chiron returned before he left and after his return in 2012, Neptune is now here until 2026.

However, the new normal pattern is that once the faster moving planets have moved through, Neptune and Chiron are about to pull back, regroup and taking everything on board and commit to the journey that is this new professional year. Because the much faster Chiron returned two years before Neptune they were never destined to align and over the years the gap between the two has widened. This allowed Chiron, planet of healing to focus on laying old professional ghosts or demons to rest and Neptune, planet of dreams to focus on your professional dreams.

This year is different, for with Chiron leaving on the 17th April, Neptune is getting ready to fly solo. Fortunately, you have Juno, queen of commitment in your career sector until the 28th April, helping you to commit to your professional dreams, to laying old professional ghosts or demons to rest and to the journey ahead. This year you also have lucky Jupiter in your work sector and while in his first full month in retrograde motion, this is putting work and career forces on a tandem course. Jupiter and Neptune, the planets of luck and dreams will continue to work together until November, making this a huge year for job and career matters.
