If you haven’t already read my piece in the masthead called Astrology and the Corona virus, please do. It’s why I’m looking for positive news in these forecasts.
In April, there are the dates to watch:
April 4 – exact conjunction between Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn
April 7 – full moon @18 Libra
April 15 – Sun/Jupiter square
April 19 – sun enters Taurus
April 22 – New moon @3 Taurus
Aries: The full moon on Libra on April 7 falls in your 7th house of partnerships. If you’re isolated at home with our family and spouse, you may find yourself conceding more readily to your spouse on whatever the issue is. Libra is a sign that craves peace and right now, it’s likely you don’t have enough of it.
On or around the 15th, with that Sun/Jupiter square, you may take on more than you can realistically handle. When the sun enters Taurus and your second house on the 19th and is followed by a new moon in that same sign and house on the 22nd, your finances should benefit. Since Uranus is closely conjunct to this new moon, there’s an element of surprise to any new financial opportunities that surface. Maybe a check from the government? Maybe a surprise job opening?
Taurus: April 7 features a full moon in Libra, in your sixth house of health and work. Full moons are about completion and news, so you may hear news about a health concern or your daily work. Right now, Jupiter has your back because it’s trining your sun sign. On the 15th, there’s a sun/Jupiter square which could indicate some sort of power struggle in your career area. Just sit back, chill, and don’t make any decisions until the 19th, when the sun enters your sign.
The new moon in your sign on April 22 is conjunct Uranus, the planet of sudden, unexpected events. It means that new opportunities appear out of the blue and even in this weird time in which we live, these opportunities should be positive.
Gemini: On April 7, the full moon in fellow air sign Libra should be a beauty for you. If you’ve been working on a creative project, you’re nearing completion or there could be news about it. The other possibility is news about your kids or about something fun you had planned – that probably got cancelled because of the corona virus. Don’t fret about it, Gemini. Get busy on your next project.
On the 19th, the square between the sun and Jupiter indicates that you may have a falling out with a friend or acquaintance over. Difference of opinion. Stay away from political discussions! With the sun entering Taurus on the 19th and the new moon in that sign three days later, a new opportunity opens up for working behind the scenes in some capacity. With both Saturn and Mars now in fellow air sign Aquarius, your thinking is more visionary.
Cancer: The full moon in Libra on April 7 occurs in your 4th house – home, family.
