The Sun and Mercury conjunct with Uranus as part of a Grand Cross with Jupiter, Mars and Pluto — and all six planets are in cardinal signs. April showers a heck of a lot of planetary energy into the cosmos. Will it be a rain or meteor shower? Pack an umbrella…and a helmet.
ARIES (03.21-04.20) Gay Rams are shooting stars sitting right in the center of all the attention. You move in important circles and can press the flesh with notables. Great! Now what? Temper your enthusiasm and focus your efforts carefully and strategically. You could make an unforgettable first impression with some influential VIP. Hmm. Define what you mean by “unforgettable.”
TAURUS (04.21-05.21) There is so much going on behind the scenes this April that queer Bulls could be forgiven for not being able to focus their attention on any one important thing. But, you need to cut through all the static and parse out what is noise and what is a secret warning signal. Go with your intuition before taking any sharp actions. You don’t want to poke yourself. Poke elsewhere.
GEMINI (05.22-06.21) Pink Twins are very sociable, which is why April might bring extra stress with certain friends. They insist on getting involved in areas that you would prefer to remain private. But, no matter how hard you try to keep a lid on things, something or someone will make it pop open. Go with the flow and don’t get hung up on who said what and what said who. What? Who?
CANCER (06.22-07.23) If you are itching to change your professional life’s course, scratch that itch by taking a break from any decision making. You don’t want to upset the applecart at home before you have time to consider the impact of any major change. There is time to see how things play out, gay Crab. Meanwhile, relax and play with an assortment of things. No names, please.
LEO (07.24-08.23) It will be hard to contain you this April as you seem to find any excuse to break out of your hum-drum routine to let loose with any crazy new experiences. This is not a bad thing, but be sure that you enjoy with purpose and don’t squander any opportunity to learn and expand your knowledge. Save it for a rainy day, proud Lion. Bring on those April showers!
VIRGO (08.24-09.23) Lovers and their all-encompassing, seductive intensities will become a little too cloying and restrictive this April. While you love all those passionate tête à têtes, you may feel reined in and restricted. Be flexible and set boundaries for your time this April. They say absence makes the heart grow fonder. I say, possibly. Do you dare give that a try, queer Virgo?
LIBRA (09.24-10.23) Expect a few surprises in your personal relationships with April, proud Libra. Not only will you find that certain folks are ready to push you in a direction that you would prefer not to take, they might also (surprisingly) have your best interests at heart and your success at hand. Hmm. Will you allow yourself to be led blindly on faith alone? Miracles do happen, you know.
SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) If you have any nit-picky, detailed tasks on your “to do” list, why not try and tackle them now. But, choose your jobs carefully and try to stay on track despite surprising detours. You can accomplish a lot this April by focusing, nonplussed, as the ground shifts and churns. Gather your forces of concentration, proud Scorp, and you will rule the roost, if not the entire world.
SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) Outrageous, wild fun is possible throughout April. But, you will need to know the limits of your party-hearty abilities so that you don’t squander all of your energy on the lightest of light entertainments. There is a lot to pile on your plate, so save some spare oomph for the biggest stuff, gay Archer. The bigger the better…with the exception of the monetary cost!
CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) Capricorns are more focused on their domestic agenda this April and this means anything from a physical change within your home to an emotional change with certain relatives. Are you in a good place? Do you have a warm, inviting sanctuary? If you think you are ready for a spring cleaning, get to it. Reassess, renovate, decorate, congregate or even bloviate?
AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) Aqueerians love to hear themselves, which can be good if you are thinking before you speak, but not so good if you unthinkingly spout opinions right off the top of your head. You are compelling and charming and your words pack a punch this April. Aim them carefully, strategically and calmly. You change the world faster than you change your mind. Uh oh.
PISCES (02.20-03.20) Money could become a source of contention for you now, especially if you have been cavalier about your budget and have been spending on whims. Partying around town with your needy pals may be great fun, but it can also be wastefully expensive. Try to be a bit fiscally conservative and save something for a rainy day. No, April showers do not count!
