A dream you thought may never materialise could come into being now as the New Moon lights up your 11th House of Wishes and Dreams and Mercury starts his retrograde. So what do you want? Consider retrying something which didn’t work before. Or come up with a new list of goals. Tip: Being methodical is your key to success throughout 2017.

ALL ABOUT APRIL … Information for all signs

Good news: No matter who you are or what your star sign is, relationships which have been under strain for the past few months should start to move forwards again in April. The planet of love and relating to other people, aka Venus, has been in a rare retrograde cycle. As of April 15, that cycle is over.

When Venus goes backwards, we all start to ask ourselves how much someone or something really matters. It’s a very deep question. Who are you really friends with, in this new world of texting and social media? Are you being a good or a bad friend? Are you collecting people or making heart connections (not possible through a computer screen!)?

Whatever your answers, use the first two weeks to work on your most important relationships. If you need to forgive someone, do it. If you’re feeling pain, forgiveness really can help. Understand there could be a very important lesson in any romantic or friendship or even professional upsets for you at the moment. Can you see the lesson? If someone has been flicking you off them like a gnat, are you being too clingy? Are you in the relationship for the right reasons? Is Auld Lang Syne all that’s keeping you together? Or do you really care for someone and you jolly well need to let them know it more?

Whatever your answers, are you determined to learn from whatever you have been through and use it in the future? Then you have made the most of Venus retrograde.

And if you have a hurt that you can’t seem to heal, try chanting. Really. It’s very powerful. The Sanskrit words “Om shakti” said over and over again can be very soothing. It’s said that these ancient sounds create a powerful healing vibration in the body. Can’t hurt to try it! (Chant silently or out loud.)

Also be aware that Venus will clash with Saturn on April 21 which is tough. If you’re feeling unloved, make sure you don’t go out looking for more evidence that you’re right! If you have had some tough love or friendship lessons recently, there could be a echo here somehow. Your job is to show you have learned your lessons about love. The sooner you learn them, the sooner you will not have to keep attracting partners sent to teach you those lessons.

After April 21, we are moving into easier Venus times. Here is where Venus will be going forwards for you, as of April 15.

For you, this cycle is all about loving being away from home, or at least loving the idea of it. If you’re actually away now, your fun factor should be about to increase. It certainly makes the coming few weeks ideal for a holiday. If you’re staying at home, someone foreign or from interstate could catch your interest. Alternatively, someone very well-travelled or broad-minded could open your eyes to exciting and new experiences.

Speaking of retrogrades, Mercury, the communications planet, starts to go into a reverse cycle this month, too. This time around, it will be in the sign of Taurus, starting on April 10.

That makes the first 10 days of April time to back up your computers, sort out your travel plans and sign any contracts you would like to have set in stone. After that, we are in Mercury retrograde territory which means it’s time to rethink, revisit and revise everything!

Here is where Mercury retrograde is taking place for you this time around:

For you it’s time to have another think re your friends and social networks, as well as re your hopes and dreams. The upside is that you’re in a position to acquire new insights into who your friends really are and what your main hopes and goals are. The downside is that some of your friendships will suffer unless you can stay in good humour! One of the best ways to think of this cycle is to think of someone hanging upside they – they see the world from another angle. This is what you can do whenever a problem crops up between now and the end of the cycle, whether it’s connected to a person or to something you’re tring to ‘make happen’. Look at any dramas from another angle. Re your hopes and dreams – accept that some of them are changing. Can you take a new approach, to make them come true, or is it time to reconsider their validity? The key with Mercury retrograde is always to let the cycle unfold without making any major decisions, if you can. Mercury retrograde usually leads to more information being sent your way so it’s best to way and see what transpires before you act.

Just as Venus retrograde took us back to the place where we thought about love and our relationships, now Mercury retrograde is the time to think back or hark back to the past in a different way that’s more mental and less emotional.

The good news is that as Mercury goes backwards, it’s a really good time to say sorry or bring up something from the past that needs to be talked through. Of course, some conversations are best left in the past! However if you said something you want to take back, or indeed if you want to go back to somewhere from your past, that is all good under Mercury retrograde.

MOON TALK

The Full Moon will be especially important to celebrate this month because it’s taking place post the Venus retrograde and while Mercury is retrograde. In other words, we can move on from the past, from part upsets in relationships and from relationships we no longer even want to be a part of.

Full Moon at 22 Libra

SYDNEY: April 11, 4.08pm
NEW YORK: April 11, 2.08am
LONDON: April 11, 7.08am

Here’s where the Full Moon is taking place for you:

The last few weeks have most likely seen you giving Number One priority to your career. If that’s the case, you can expect your personal life to start demanding some more of your attention now, as the Full Moon takes place across your career and family zones. It’s all very fabulous doing brilliantly at work and getting kudos (or at least managing to hold your own). But don’t let your ego lead you into thinking that that’s the most important part of life. Because it’s just not. Sure, there will be time to start to focus again on your professional life, but right now, if you listen to the Stars, you will hear them reminding you to take care of your personal life.

The New Moon this month will take place in the sign of Taurus.

New Moon at 7 Taurus

SYDNEY: April 26, 10.16pm
NEW YORK: April 26, 8.16am
LONDON: April 26, 1.16pm

So wherever you have Taurus in your chart is where you will feel that. Here is a quick guide – read your Rising Sign if you know it (and if you don’t but which you did, you can find out here for free www.moonmessages.com/freechart)

Aries or Aries Rising – there is a new start coming re cash. This new cash cycle should in fact be related to your feelings of improved self-esteem.

Taurus or Taurus Rising – it’s your annual chance to start ALL OVER again. This is a mega chance to leave the past behind, Venus retrograde upsets and all.

Gemini – it’s triggering your 12th House which is the part of your chart all to do with spirituality.

Cancer – this is your annual Wishing New Moon – careful what you’re wishing for!

Leo – there is a New Moon in your Career Zone so expect professional developments

Virgo – the New Moon in your 9th House is a great time to start travel and study projects

Libra – sex and money are both areas of your life where you can make a restart happen now

Scorpio – your love life is getting a re-boost so you bring some lighter energies in!

Sagittarius – time to think about your daily routines and over all well-being

Capricorn – time to have more fun, be creative and be more playful

Aquarius – there is a new vibe at home and regarding family matters – maybe even a move!

Pisces – time to change the way you’re thinking and communicating with at least one person

YOU ALSO NEED TO KNOW THAT

If you’re thinking of going back to work, be it part-time or fulltime, then this is the month to make some investigations, as Mercury reverses in your Professional Zone. Even if you’re retired, doing something to generate a bit of income won’t go astray, will it? It could even be something you used to do back in the day – perhaps you can revive an old “nice little earner”? And if you don’t work and have no intention to, that’s fine as well! Cancerians hoping to travel or do some evening classes or other form of study have excellent stars.
