It is while there is a natural lull on the professional front that life is literally exploding all around you. So much so that while Venus will return to your career sector on the 25th April and Mars will return to your work sector next month, it might be too late by then to ever go back to an all work and no play mode. Yet if you’re looking for a moral compass you need to look no further than Saturn, hard taskmaster of the cosmos for some perspective. Whichever way Saturn leans is an indication of which way life should lean and that means on the playful side of the fence.
You start the month with Saturn, Pluto and Mars all in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart at the same time, something that has never happened before in our lifetime. Mars, the last to arrive only returned on the 18th March so this is something you’re still adjusting to. However, what shifted the pendulum even more to the playful side was Venus’ return to your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery on the 31st March. This was an ordinary event that is set to have extraordinary consequences.
At first glance, this is just Venus getting a three week jump on the Sun, who will return to this adventurous part of your chart on the 20th April, as he does at this time every year. Yet both will sense that there is nothing temporary about this, with Uranus returning to begin an eight year visit next month. Once playful and adventurous forces come together, they will become the dominant force in the heavens for the next six weeks. This might be an important month for financial and money matters, but playful and adventurous forces hold the real power.
Virgo April 2018 Love Horoscope
There is something special developing on both the romantic and relationship fronts this month, both in a unique and different way to each other and to what is the norm at this time each year. With Pluto in your romantic sector since 2008, Chiron in your relationship sector since 2010 and Neptune since 2012, neither romantic nor relationship matters ever really go off the boil. With the Sun always leaving your relationship sector in March, this is the point where Chiron and Neptune usually regroup. With the Sun always leaving your romantic sector in January, April is when Pluto has turned retrograde each year since arriving.
On both fronts that is still the case, but in a very unusual way. Normally Pluto is on his own, but this year you not only have Saturn in your romantic sector but Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos as well. While Saturn will turn retrograde on the 18th April and Pluto on the 23rd April, Mars will continue to fuel your romantic passions and fighting spirit and move romantic matters forward, until leaving next month. This gives you the best of both worlds, with Mars continuing to seek out new romantic opportunities, while the doors will also open to the past and second chances.
On the relationship front, something equally stunning is happening and not just before you have Juno, queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships here for the first time in four years. On the 17th April Chiron, planet of healing will leave your relationship sector after eight years. This makes way for Neptune, planet of dreams to become the last planet standing, once Juno leaves on the 28th April. Chiron will check for any remaining old relationship ghosts later in the year, but for now, he is putting that quest on hold.
Virgo April 2018 Money Horoscope
The focus will always be on your financial situation and money matters at this time of year, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of April in your financial sector. Where you find the Sun you’re more likely to find Venus and Mercury and that was the case until just a few hours before you moved into the new month. Venus only left on the 31st March, but not before fuelling your financial confidence, desires and expectations. Venus and Mercury were not only here when the Sun returned last month but were aligned, allowing you to start your annual financial review with heart and head in the game from the get go.
Mercury who will normally move through in just 15 days should have left before Venus, having done what he could to give you the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game. It is Mercury who works with the Sun each year to help you create a financial game plan and resolutions for the coming year. Instead, Mercury turned retrograde just after the Sun returned and will remain in retrograde motion until the 15th April. This will make it important not to push or rush money matters in the first half of the month, but it gives a chance to spend time back at the drawing board.
While the Sun will leave on the 20th April, a New Moon on the 16th April will give you a chance to commit to your financial game plan and resolutions for the coming year. Except with Mercury not leaving until the 14th May and Uranus, here since 2010 leaving on the 16th May, this is something that is still evolving. Normally the message to Uranus from the Sun as he leaves each year is ‘we’ll catch up again next year’. There will be no next year when it comes to working with Uranus, the planet that reveals the truth, with Mercury staying on to create a game plan and resolutions for the ages.
Virgo April 2018 Career Horoscope
There is a saying about letting sleeping dogs lie that you need to take heed of, especially in the early part of the month. You might feel that you need to be on top of things 24/7, but the professional gods are asking that you rest on your laurels. From the Sun’s departure from your work sector in late February to Venus’ return to your career sector on the 25th April, you have a chance to let things settle and play out. You might not have any planetary activity in either of your two professional houses until Venus returns to your career sector on the 25th April, but with the South Node in your work sector, there is plenty of natural momentum.
The South Node is not a planet and more a gravitational force and as the power behind February’s solar eclipse, there is a need to trust the natural momentum this is creating. The Sun’s departure in February should have brought all planetary activity on the job front to a close for the year, but Mars will return on the 16th May for the first of two visits between then and November. With the Sun and Mercury both returning to your career sector next month, Venus’ return on the 25th April is the point where things will start heating up again.
As you wait for a new surge on the job and career fronts, the Moon’s monthly visits are an important chance to both check you’re on track and to line up for what lies ahead. The Moon will move through your work sector from the 9th April to the 12th April and through your career sector from the 19th April to the 21st April. In both visits keep your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground, without over thinking things.
