April Horoscope 2017 – Overview
The Sun began the New Year according to the Zodiac on March 20/21 (AEDT/EDT), when we reached the Equinox for the first time in 2017 – (Autumn/Spring depending on the hemisphere you live in). On March 28/29 this was cemented in by the Aries New Moon, bringing you courage to believe in yourself and stand up for what is right for you. It’s a great time to be selfish if you like – the reverse of what you were taught as a child!
Venus Retrograde is asking you to look at the whole way you approach relationship at the same time. Is it really working right for you? Altogether there were five planets in Aries at the time of the New Moon, so you may have noticed a bit of competition and aggression in the air.
On April 6/7, Saturn (the Lord of Time and Karma) begins his annual four and a half month backward journey through the zodiac – right slap bang on the same degree as the centre of our Milky Way Galaxy, 27 Sagittarius. The Galactic Centre is a Black Hole emitting powerful infra-red radiation which has the ability to squeeze your subconscious into releasing old emotional programs that are no longer serving you. So you will be going over what really is the truth in your beliefs around your talents and abilities, as well as what do you really believe about the Natural Laws of the Universe.
Mercury joins Saturn on April 10 and Pluto on April 20/21. So with Jupiter already being in retrograde motion for a while, there will be five aspects of life you will have the opportunity to revisit, going back over, replaying, remembering and reviewing the decisions you made the first time around.
The Full Moon on April 11 will have the Aries Sun merging energy with Uranus and Eris the Goddess of Discord, in opposition to the Moon in Libra with Jupiter. Any restrictions from your partnerships or relationships will be under the spotlight, and you will see clearly which parts of your authentic self are being sacrificed on the altar of togetherness. Artemis (the Goddess of Freedom and Nature) will be with the pair and a cross will be formed in the sky with Juno (the Goddess of Marriage), opposite Vesta the Pure Spiritual Flame, all in the active and initiating Cardinal signs.
The pressures to be true to your own needs will have never been higher or clearer! This all needs to be dealt with before the New Moon in Taurus on April 26, when Mercury and Uranus the planets of the mind, will be combining their energies – highlighting exciting possibilities for a safe and successful future.

During April, you, Taurus, will feel rather unsure about who you really are. As you plod backwards and forwards, between wanting to be noticed and appreciated and wanting to remain in the background, you’ll be quietly working on your next move. It is not a good time to make changes to how you are seen, so this is all happening for a reason.
Big transformations are taking place for you on a deep inner level. You are letting go of emotional patterns that are not working for you anymore. Around April 11 Taurus will find more balance coming into the way you spend your daily life. In some way, you will be more strongly connected to nature or natural remedies.
Be patient (something Taurus is not good at) and all the confusion will prove to be worthwhile by the time of your New Moon on April 26, when the way forward will reveal itself.
Healing Crystals & Stones: Taurus can be extremely fixed and when they are a square peg in a round hole, they will often accommodate the discomfort, rather than find a place that fits their abilities. Aquamarine offers Taureans the ability to climb out of the hole.
