Happy Birthday Aries!
In April you are beginning a new birthday year and fittingly this month is all about you: your personality, the way in which the world sees you, what you decide you want the world to see, your appearance, and your ego.
Your first house is where Uranus has been residing since 2011 and you may have witnessed many fits and starts, sudden changes, and an upheaval in this area of your life. Other major planets have made some major position changes in the chart in the past year, with Jupiter moving in your 5th house last summer to stay for a year and Saturn moving into your 9th house until 2017.
Whereas last month, the attention was on the hidden area of your life, your unconscious, your inner mental processes, and the repressed parts of yourself, this month the attention is on you, your appearance, and the side of you that everyone sees.
Uranus has upscaled your needs for independence and basic freedom and with the Sun shining its spotlight in this part of your chart, this desire will be more apparent. There may also be a streak of rebelliousness and sudden changes that may already have occurred may have already affected you in an all encompassing way.
Venus and Mars have already made their way through the 1st house last month bringing a sense of peace, harmony and a splash of passion into your personality and affecting you to your core — and this month, the Sun is basking in the attention directed upon you.
Venus and Mars have moved on and into your 2nd house of material security and you will notice that spending was on the increase, but at the same time, you will be able to make up for it by aggressively going after ways to bring in more income. Venus will move on halfway through the month bringing your spending down, but Mars will remain in the 2nd house all month keeping your drive focused on making money. Venus will then give you a way with words, to charm your clients, and bring a level of diplomacy to your communications with others.
Mercury will infuse your month with lots of discussions and talks about you and what you value and there may be a wisp of rebellion to your tone as the Sun and Mercury rub shoulders with Uranus. You may even try something new and unique with your appearance, such as changing your wardrobe, or sporting a new hairstyle.
There are a few trends that are taking place this month. On April 8th, Jupiter will go direct in your house of romance, projects, children and leisure time which is good news because it is the planet of luck and abundance, and, on April 16th, Pluto will go retrograde in your 7th house of relationships and partnerships, placing a more concentrated effort and energy into the transformation taking place in that area of your life.
This month will begin with its focus on you and what you have to say, and lead into the things that you value, your material security, your attitudes toward your partners, and on the things you own.
April 1. The Sun in your 1st house opposes the North Node in your 7th house. With the focus this month on your Self, your ego, how you appear to others, what you choose to show to others, and how others perceive you, it is possible you may be eclipsing your partner and their needs. Your lessons until November 2015 are in the partnership area of your life where you must learn to balance your partnerships and close relationships, creating a balance between your own goals or needs and those of others close to you. If you are successful in your quest to learn these lessons, you will reap opportunities, good fortune and happiness in this area of your life.
April 2. The Sun in your 1st house trine Jupiter. in your 5th house. Even as you are learning to balance the area of your life concerning your Self versus your partners, you seem to be doing well in the area of your children or your personal projects. You are able to tap into your inner child and can empathize with your children or with people younger than you.
The Moon in your 6th house trine Pluto in your 10th house. You are undergoing wide sweeping changes and transformations in your career sector. You will not notice this outright because it is a slow transition to last until 2017 however, this will be amplified with the moon traversing your 6th house of work routine and health touching upon the type of work that you do.
April 4. Mercury in your 1st house opposes the Moon in your 7th house. There is a full moon lunar eclipse in your area of partnerships bringing up issues or challenges in this area. Your partner may have news for you that affects you to your core. I hope this news isn’t too jarring, because lunar eclipses are usually connected to endings and culmination. If you are in a business partnership, your partner may be choosing to leave the corporation, or changing the nature of your business. So, an ending is not necessarily the ultimate ending of a relationship or partnership. It may simply be that the nature of your relationship is changing.
April 5. Mercury in your 1st house opposes the North Node in your partnership sector. You will be discussing and communicating with your close relationships and partners which may be a result of the news you have received. Your ego and self-preservation may be kicking in as the easy way out of the challenge, however your lessons lie in your working through balancing both areas of your life. The moon is in Libra in your 7th house so you have love and a helping hand to smooth out any issues or challenges diplomatically.
April 6-7. The Sun in your 1st house conjuncts Uranus in the same house. What makes your lessons in balancing your close relationships that much more difficult is your need for change and constant fluctuation in your life and this you have felt since Uranus transited into your first house in 2011. There have been surprises, turns of events and unexpected circumstances and you are comfortable with this kind of disruptive energy.
April 7. The Moon in your 8th house sextile Pluto in your 10th house. With the moon in Scorpio in your house of joint resources reaching out to Pluto in your house of career will bring up some deep and hidden desires in connection to power. You may intuitively know what is your next course of action to gain more control or power in your career. You may also come across quite a powerful woman or join forces with one in connection to your career.
Mercury in your 1st house trine Jupiter in your 5th house. You will receive some news or kudos for a job well done related to a project you have been working on.
