Aries April Forecast

Painting by Kelly Lynn Kimball

Happy Birthday, Aries. The Sun transits your 1st House of your physical appearance, the way you see yourself and the way you interact with others. These areas will be highlighted and magnified throughout this month, Aries. You could be ultra focused on your most intimate relationships and at the same time learning how to remain calm and centered while living in a chaotic world. Being the 1st sign of the zodiac gives you an edge but it also can make you appear to be a "know it all," but you really don't care much what most other people say. "Consider the source" is your motto.

You're the consummate leader, and as April begins, there could be something you're working on which will benefit you as well as others and will highlight your leadership qualities. The spotlight is on you this month, Aries. With several planets retrograde, you could be feeling physically drained at times while having stamina at others. Circle April 9th on your calendar as a standout day for you. Also keep in mind that Pluto (transformation) goes retrograde on April 10th and this could cause you to possibly feel some insecurity regarding your career. Whenever planets go retrograde, things start to slow down and this is the last thing fast paced Aries enjoys. Pay close attention to events that occur on April 10th though, as they WILL have an effect on your career, although it might not progress as quickly as the Ram wants. Hang in there, Aries. Pluto will turn direct on September 17th, 2012. You could benefit, believe it or not, from what you may perceive as a career slow down.

Venus enters Gemini, an air sign compatible with your fire element, on April 3rd. Love will delight and excite Aries in April. This Venus placement puts single Aries in line to meet a new love interest possibly through friends, a family member or through a group with which you are involved. Single Aries will definitely have options this month. Coupled Aries will enjoy the transit of Venus in Gemini as it bonds you closer and makes communicating seem effortless. Coupled Aries will be overjoyed and extremely satisfied with their relationships throughout April.

Full Moon occurs in the sign of Libra on April 6th. This Moon impacts your 7th House of marriage. This brings feelings of prosperity, good luck and positivity. Your relationships, personal or professional, will find that good fortune is part of this picture. You will be content, excited and in sync with your significant other.

A New Moon in Taurus on April 21st joins Jupiter in your 2nd House of gifts and possessions and makes you ultra aware of your current cash flow. This is an ideal time to pay with cash (what is that?) as opposed to using credit. You could also be the recipient of or give a significant gift to someone special on this day. You will learn where you stand in connection with your finances.

The signs of Leo and an Aquarius will play key roles in your month, Aries.
