April 2019 Horoscopes-
When looking at horoscopes in newspapers and magazines, people typically only look at their Sun sign. For those of us in the field of astrology, we know there is a lot more to each individual person than just that, we are all a combination of all twelve astrological signs that each manifest for the individual person in specific and very unique ways. I personally find that by looking at the horoscopes of my Moon (our emotional selves) and Rising (aka Ascendant, us at first glance through first impressions as well as physical appearance) signs, not just the Sun (our ego, who we are at the core); everything makes even more sense because we see how the puzzle pieces of who we are fit together. In terms of romance, even looking at your Venus (the planet of love and money) and Mars (our physical drives) signs makes a world of difference.

Hi guys! I took a big hit in my health over the last month that pretty much left me unable to even do the simplest tasks. It wasn't fun, but I'm glad to tell you that I am on the road to getting well and I am already doing much better now.
April has given us a New Moon on the 5th with a bang, as we had the cardinal-warrior energy of Aries pushing as hard as it can but while we're still in the post-shadow period of Mercury retrograde (who is tangled up with Neptune no less, so holy confusion). If you can get past the mental fog and refuse to get lost in the world's distractions, the message of the New Moon is to jump on the boat going forward to choose to de-clutter your past and live your best life.
We are given a bit of a reprieve for a short time up until the 10th, as all planets are moving direct until then. Jupiter retrograde begins April 10th in it's home sign of Sagittarius and as always, retrogrades signify a need to go back over and review our recent past. When it comes to planet Jupiter, the general areas to reflect on involve hope, beliefs, our spirituality, our priorities in terms of what we are paying more attention to and/or what we need to pay more attention to (or less!), overindulgence and practicing moderation. The area that would be personally influenced for you all depends on where Jupiter is currently moving through your own birth chart, through houses and the relationship is forms with fellow planets.
We have a second Full Moon in a row occurring in the sign of Libra on April 19th, making it pretty significant as the first one last month began at the very beginning of the sign and this last one at the tail end. The theme is instant gratification and patience: We want what we want when we want it (phew say that 3 times fast out loud), but cannot expect it to just magically fall from the sky without putting in the effort and hard work. Planet Uranus plays a part in this Full Moon, so be flexible as Uranus likes to throw some unexpected curve balls our way... and hey, that's not such a bad thing most of the time if you really think about it!
Other planetary happenings during this busy month include Mercury leaving Pisces and moving into Aries on April 17th, Venus entering Aries on the 20th as well as the Sun entering Taurus on the same day, and a doozy of Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn going retrograde on the 24th and 29th respectively (more information to come on those two retrogrades on the next month's batch of horoscopes)!
Aries (March 20 - April 19): Mercury, the planet of all things mental will finally be entering your sign this month after what seems like an eternity in Pisces. You especially will find the brain fog clearing for you at an accelerated pace compared to the rest of the zodiac. Towards the end of April, you can find yourself making an important decision without fear or a need to second guess yourself.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20): Jupiter is magnifying an itch you just haven't been able to scratch lately. The purpose of this retrograde for you serves as a time to internally retrace your steps and discover once and for all what the culprit is (and finally feel some relief)! That way, you can move forward at your classic steady and persevering pace towards inner contentment.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20): Gemini, April is a month that is handing you the opportunity to make wrongs turn right. It is time to come clean to yourself, but in a compassionate way by taking some accountability on your end of social interactions that may have turned sour. The choice of course is ultimately yours, however heading this direction will prove to be very beneficial in overall healing.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22): Cancer, the month of April asks you to release your grasp on a situation that is doing more harm for you than good. Often, holding so tightly onto something is more painful than letting it go. Instead of counting your losses on the scoreboard, become more aware of what really brings you joy in your life that you do have.
Leo (July 23 - August 22): Not only does Jupiter retrograde have you dwelling in your head, but soon having Chiron and Mercury teaming up in the area of belief systems and faith for you will have you questioning your own path during this month. Have patience with this, and do not force what doesn't intuitively feel "right" to you. The answers will come when they are meant to. All that you need to do is have willingness to trust.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22): Virgo, April may be a month for you to focus more inward than on the outer surroundings in your perception. You don't need to over think or over -question yourself to a pulp over what you worry "has gotten into you", sometimes we just need a break from socialization to rest and recharge ourselves. Take a breather from the daily routine (I know, easier said than done) and try to embrace a little bit of a different take on self-nurturing.
Libra (September 23 - October 22): Libra, be aware of the flashes on insight you receive this month. With Jupiter in your house of intellect and communication, along with Saturn and Pluto in your house of family, roots and heritage; signs will be shown to you which will leave you intrigued to discover more about your ancestral lineage. Your mind is craving mental stimulation and new knowledge, making this a fantastic time to take the initiative to learn something new.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21): Relationships may very well be the main focal point for you this month, Scorpio. Keep some level of awareness with you not to stick by rigid expectations. If you can keep an open mind, you'll be pleasantly surprised as the potential for an unexpected, yet exciting change is apparent while planet Uranus moves through your house of romance.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21): Towards the last half of this month, you'll find yourself feeling much more inspired and motivated to create. It can definitely help you to reflect back on your life and re-adjusting your priorities, with your ruling planet Jupiter moving through your house of identity and personal autonomy. Enjoy the process of exploring new routes of expressing yourself!
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19): Planet Jupiter going retrograde will be traveling throughout the house ruling your subconscious mind. This means you're being asked to reflect and look back on what messages this planet has been trying to get through to you. Are you suppressing your intuition? Are you ignoring or denying synchronicity that crosses your path? This may feel overwhelming to realize, however the timing of this wake-up call has a beautiful silver lining around the corner for you.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18): Aquarius, with Mercury and Neptune hovering so closely together for a while, now is not the time to make any rash financial choices. These planets are snuggling up tightly right in the house of money and worth, so wait for the mental clarity to return when these planets move apart. On a good note, Mars is in your house of creativity and inspiration so take a moment to brainstorm some outside-the-box ideas and solutions for the time being.
Pisces (February 19 - March 19): Pisces, this month is great for you to continue solidifying your own boundaries accordingly. With Chiron in Aries sitting in your house of worth, you may find yourself being given tests in how you are feeling about yourself, in your own skin. This in turn equates directly to how you allow others to treat you. You don't owe anyone an apology for distancing yourself if you see fit, especially for your own mental health. You do you.
