April 2024

The Sun and therefore the faster planets that travel with him are moving through the same part of the sky where the outer planets are located and this is making for some familiar but also major themes this month. One of those themes is on the relationship front, where while the Sun left on the March equinox, you will begin the month with Venus and Mars still here. As was the case when the Sun and Mercury moved through over recent months, it was to find Saturn here for the first time in three decades, putting a major focus on your relationships. Venus will leave on 5th April but Mars, making his first visit in two years will spend the whole of April here. Venus’ aim before leaving, will be to give your heart a voice and to give Mars, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos something to keep fighting for. This will see Venus take off her planet of love hat and don her planet of money hat as she joins the Sun in your financial sector. While the solar spotlight is always on your financial situation and money matters at this time of year, for the first time in 18 years the North Node is also here, giving you a sense of financial direction while turning an ordinary New Moon into a total solar eclipse. This will happen when the Moon moves through from 7th April to 9th April. This will be an opportunity for major new beginnings, though with Mercury in retrograde motion here from 2nd April to 26th April, at a time when his smart head for money will come with a lot of hindsight. Meanwhile, when the Sun leaves and returns to your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery on 20th April, it will be to put the spotlight on yet another major theme this month. It is six days later and three days before Venus joins them on 29th April, that Jupiter will move into his final month in this adventurous part of your chart. With Jupiter returning to your career sector next month to begin your biggest year for professional growth and expansion in over a decade, there will be a push to make his remaining weeks in an adventurous part of your chart count.

April 2024

Mars only returns to your relationship sector every two years, so to have the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos spend the whole of April here, is making this one of the most important months in what is already an important year for your relationships. For the first time in three decades, you moved into the New Year with Saturn in your relationship sector and for the first time ever, with Neptune here as well. Neptune is the planet of dreams and fantasies and Saturn is the hard taskmaster of the cosmos, but having come together last March, by the time they moved into their first full year together here, they had learned to work as a team. And just as well, for they will be together here until they both leave in early 2026. Neptune is showing you the dream or a sense of what’s possible while Saturn is keeping your feet on the ground while giving you the resolve to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes. This is something that the Sun put the solar spotlight on when he moved through and while he and Mercury, the planet of communication have been and gone, as you move into the new month Venus and Mars, the planets of love and passion are here. It is Venus’ alignment with Neptune in her final days before leaving on 5th April that will bring her desires and Neptune’s dreams together, while Mars will stay on all month to help you fight to make this a reality. The Moon will move through from 6th April to 7th April and returning a day after Venus leaves, this will be a valuable chance to check in and regroup. Meanwhile, instead of getting ready to leave your romantic sector the dwarf planet Ceres is slowing ahead of a retrograde turn next month that will keep her here until December. The Moon will make two visits to your romantic sector this month, making these the most romantically charged days of the month as well as bringing a chance to check in with Ceres’ deep dive into your heart’s needs and priorities. The first visit will run from 1st April to 3rd April and the second from 28th April to 30th April, with the early and final days of the month being the most romantically charged.

April 2024

Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of April in your financial sector, the solar spotlight is always on your financial situation and money matters at this time of year. However, this year there are a lot more moving parts, while this is also being extended over a longer period, with the Sun’s month long visit more the epicentre of a wider circle of influence rather than the sole point where there is an extended focus on money matters. Because the dwarf planet Eris, the warrior planet of the cosmos has been here for nine decades money matters will never go off the boil and you will always have her financial passions and fighting spirit to draw on. At the same time, with the North Node spending the whole of 2024 in your financial sector, this is giving you a built in sense of financial direction. However, while the Sun only returned on the March equinox, Mercury’s return earlier last month was a chance to use his smart head for money to get your head in the game ahead of time. Normally here for just 14 to 15 days, instead of leaving a retrograde turn on 2nd April will keep Mercury here for over two months, allowing you to keep your head in the game and your feet on the ground all month. In retrograde motion until 26th April, this is also a chance to spend time back at the drawing board while taking away any urgency. Moving through from 5th April to 29th April, Venus will add to the mix by working to fuel your financial confidence, update your financial desires and expectations and work to turn those desires into reality. The Sun, Mercury and Venus will all be here when the Moon not only returns to your financial sector from 7th April to 9th April but as an eclipsing New Moon, creating the potential for major new beginnings. This comes two weeks after an eclipsing Full Moon in your income sector did the same on the other side of the financial fence. Yet all this is in preparation for Mars’ return in the early hours of May, with the warrior planet of the cosmos then using everything until now as preparation for a major push to take your financial power back.
