Monthly Horoscopes April 2020

Aries (March 21st - April 19th)

Your social life is curtailed this month. Social isolation is something that affects everyone but the planets are aligned in such a way that suggests that Aries feel it more than others. This is because it influences your health and happiness. What a great opportunity to reassess what makes you happy. The more introverted Ram may welcome some time for self-reflection. You may have a project that can be undertaken in your own home, or close to home. April is also the ideal month during which to have a health check-up, or to make changes that enhance your well-being.

Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)

The lead-up to your birthday is quiet as the world moves into a different phase. Taureans are affected most in the work-place. Your profession is likely to be curtailed in some way during April. This could mean restrictions, or perhaps a shortage of opportunities. As a true Bull you know when to follow the rules and benefit in the long-term. If you stay the distance then you are likely to build a strong reputation for reliability and hard-work. The Sun is in the 12th House of your Solar Chart indicating a time for being more reclusive than usual. Rest and recuperate.

Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)

Your social life is likely to be more hectic now. Of course, this could be social media outlets. This is the ideal time to enjoy connections with other people no matter what form they take. Any plans for overseas travel may be curtailed. Connections with other countries, or as a publisher or teacher are likely to be either cancelled or postponed. Perhaps you could link up through the world wide web. Your charm and quick wit are likely to increase your influence. An artistic project or hobby may also be highlighted.

Cancer (June 21st - July 22nd)

Your professional life flourishes this month, particularly if your career involves nurturing other people. One person, or perhaps many, need your support. This is more likely to be connected to your career than to your home life, although both may be affected. Your natural ability to encourage and foster others is needed. You are a natural home maker. If this is your main role then you thrive. You are the head of your household and this keeps you busy. You may dream of escape but you know that books, films, prayers and meditation can also lift your spirits.

Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)

April sees you somewhat embroiled in relationship politics. As a true Leo you are an excellent leader, well able to assert yourself. However, this month compromise is the name of the game if you want to move forward. A personal partner, an ex-partner or a business partner is calling for change. Are you up to the challenge? The trick is to see the bigger picture. The Sun is in the 9th House of your Solar Chart indicating that you can rise above any tricky negotiations through mediation, broadening adhering to spiritual beliefs or perhaps immersing yourself in a much-loved sporting activity.

Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)

How well do you adapt to change? Your work-a-day life is likely to alter this month, calling on you to vary your usual lifestyle. Restrictions and delays may affect your working environment, or perhaps your role at work changes. You may have more responsibilities. It is time to consider your own health. Work-life balance is important at all times and this month you have the opportunity to assess your own and make sure that you are on the right track. Put your health first during April. Consult your doctor with any niggling health matters.

Libra (September 23rd - October 22nd)

The focus is on partnership. This may be a personal or business association. Romance may be restricted, so it is more likely to be quality time with your partner. One other possibility is that you feel the urge to become involved in a healing mode, either for yourself or as a practitioner. Perhaps some counselling, or consoling of someone else. Alternatively, it could be that you have some much-needed self-healing time. This, in turn, prompts more quality time with loved ones. April is also a beneficial month for reassessing any joint assets or monetary investments.

Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)

The year 2020 is your time to shine. Finally, your unique skills are appreciated. Your power of discernment helps cut through unnecessary fear and fake news. You have the wisdom to know what laws of the land should be followed and respect to adhere to them. In April you are likely to embrace any laws enforcing self-isolation as you know that it protects the vulnerable in society. It also helps that planets are aligned in the 4th House of your Solar Chart emphasising home and family. This month you are likely to hunker down and complete a project at home, one close to your heart.

Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)

Your natural mode is to broaden your horizons through travel and expansion of your mind. Boredom is not your friend. April somewhat curtails your usual modus operandi. If you have travel plans then these are subject to change. You need to adapt, to be creative. However, you can focus on something that inspires your imagination. You can expand your horizons through a hobby, project or artistic pursuit. Children, too, can inspire you this month. Adventures can be sought in everyday life. Your ruling planet Jupiter combines with potent Pluto this month giving you the impetus to focus on the power of faith.

Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)

Material matters are foremost in your mind this month. World politics has been buffeting the goats of the Zodiac for some time. So, you are well-prepared for tougher financial times. April sees you re-examining your budget, making some adjustments and moving forward. You need to avoid pessimism and favour pragmatism. It is time to take practical steps to shore up your own health and happiness. Family responsibilities are also highlighted. If you are single then your living quarters take centre stage. Working from home may be an option this month.

Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)

Serious Saturn has moved into your Zodiac Sign indicating that you are shouldering more responsibilities than usual. This could be connected to older people and your siblings, if you have them. Alternatively, it could be neighbourhood issues that are to the fore. Whatever your personal situation it is a time of reckoning. You need to decide what or who is important and move forward step by step. Self-discipline is the key. This may not be fun but you need to look at the long-term goal and benefits. What do you ultimately want to achieve? A lack of short-term gratification can sometimes lead to greater rewards.

Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)

April calls on you to ensure that your self-esteem is strong. If you do not feel good about yourself then why not? What can you change? Or how can you accept yourself flaws and all? This is a time when you need to surround yourself with uplifting people and activities. Once you feel self-assured then you are able to look at other personal matters – such as your possessions, values and income earning ability. Money matters weigh on your mind. How can you improve your income earing potential or do you need to implement a tighter budget? These are the types of questions that arise now.
