Scorpio April 2018 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


It will come as no surprise that there will be a need to find a balance between work and play this month. For not only is that always the case at this time of year, it has been your reality for several months now. Even though the Sun, Mercury and Venus all left a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart last month and returned to your work sector, this pendulum hasn’t shifted fully to the work side of the fence and won’t. Yet the practice you’ve had when it comes to a balance between work and play, should also benefit your relationships this month.

It was in the closing hours of March that Venus returned to your relationship sector, with the planet of love and guardian of your relationships the first to arrive this year. The 1st April is Venus’ first full day and with the Sun not returning to turn the spotlight onto your relationships until the 20th April, this is giving her a head start. Whether single, in a relationship or between relationships, this is a chance to let your heart take the lead before there is any call for reality checks or relationship housekeeping.

Yet for the first time in 12 years Venus and the Sun this month and Mercury next month will return to find Jupiter on the opposite side of the sky, in Scorpio. This is not a problem and more a reality that you will have to balance your personal and relationship needs. Venus and Jupiter’s opposition on the 17th April will be the first time those needs clash, but as the planets of love and luck, this should be a chance to recognise the kind of balance you need.

Love 2017Scorpio April 2018 Love Horoscope

There is something special developing on the romantic and relationship fronts this month and while any planets here at the same time will naturally support each other, there is something very different developing on each front. On the romantic front, there is something very old coming to an important turning point, while on the relationship front something very new is developing. There has been continuous planetary activity in your romantic sector since 2003 but Chiron and Neptune are the oldest current planets here. Chiron, planet of healing has been in your romantic sector since 2010 and Neptune, planet of dreams since 2012.

However, on the 17th April Chiron will leave, leaving the path clear for Neptune to become the sole planet directing romantic matters, for the first time since it returned. Neptune has returned to fuel your romantic dreams in what is his first visit in our lifetime, a visit that won’t end until 2026. But until now Chiron’s mission to lay old ghosts to rest has come first, underway for two years before Neptune returned. Chiron’s departure is a big deal, for it makes way for romantic matters to become more about following the dream.

Meanwhile, the 1st April is Venus, planet of love and guardian of your relationships’ first full day in your relationship sector and from the first full day she loves what she sees. This includes the three powerful planets in your communication sector. With Saturn turning retrograde in your communication sector on the 18th April and Pluto on the 23rd April, before Venus leaves your relationship sector on the 25th April there will even be a chance to give your relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice. What you might not be able to explain is the relationship confidence, something that will strengthen when the Sun returns on the 20th April. For what the Sun and Venus know, is the game changing implications of Uranus’ return next month.

Money 2017Scorpio April 2018 Money Horoscope

All is quiet in both your money houses this month, remarkably so and in a way that you might still be adjusting to. Because the last time you moved into a new month without planetary activity in either of your two money houses was in September 2014, over three years ago. What began then with Mars’ return to your income sector, only ended when Mars became the last planet to leave last month. Mars had returned twice in that time, always to find Saturn here, from December 2014 to December 2017.

Mars may have left your income sector last month, but there is plenty of momentum and enough happening on the job and career fronts to keep the wheels turning until lucky Jupiter returns in November. This will have no detrimental impact on income matters and if anything this might have taken some of the pressure off you. However, this will have huge implications on the financial front, as Venus will find out when she returns to your financial sector on the 25th April. Venus is not only the first planet to reach your financial sector this year, but the first to return and not find Saturn on the other side of the sky in over three years.

You have all the benefits of over three years momentum on the income front, but none of the downside, which is financial tension whenever a planet moves through your financial sector. With the Sun not returning until later next month, this gives Venus time to put her focus into fuelling your financial confidence and getting a feel for money matters on your terms. The Moon will move through your income sector from the 4th April to the 7th April, before Venus returns to your financial sector and therefore without creating any financial tension. This will simply sharpen your nose for money and give you a link into all the untapped income potential and momentum Mars left you with.

Career 2017Scorpio April 2018 Career Horoscope

April will always be a busy month for you or at least a month when the focus is on your work situation and job matters. This is because with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of April in your work sector, the solar spotlight is always on work and job matters at this time of year. This year there is a mix of the ordinary and the extraordinary, making this anything but an annual update. With Uranus in your work sector since 2010 work and job matters have been ticking over all year and simply become more active when the Sun, Mercury and Venus return each year.

That is still the case this year and while Venus left on the 31st March, she has left you with the confidence and motivation to continue to work with the Sun and Mercury. The Sun will leave on the 20th April and while this will take the solar spotlight off your work situation and job matters, with Mercury in retrograde motion here until the 15th April and not leaving until the 14th May, he will keep your head out of the game for another three weeks. It is once Mercury leaves next month that things should settle back to normal, which means Uranus taking the reins again and keeping the wheels turning until the Sun returns next year.

Except Uranus is leaving next month as well, just two days after Mercury on the 16th May. Uranus will pop back for a few months later in the year, but that will be to tie up loose ends and double check that nothing has been overlooked. The Sun, Mercury and Venus will return to your work sector each year, but it will be another eight decades before they return to find Uranus here again. Uranus needs the Sun and Mercury to make his last full month count and they need Uranus to give work and job matters the kind of wings that only he can provide. While there shouldn’t be any urgency on the job front this month, there is a definite need to put everything you have into everything you do.
