If you have been wondering when your hard work is going to pay off in the form of some cold, hard cash (eg a payrise), it could happen this month. You have been hopefully working hard. Now as Venus changes directions in your Career Zone, you cash flow could start to pick up, as the rewards for your efforts begin.

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.

Venus will be going forwards again in your Career Zone. If you feel as though your working life has been a bit shaky or fraught with tension (either because of your pay situation or because of your relationships with your colleagues) this can change now. Your popularity is about to increase, your work relationship should flow smoothly, and if you play your cards right, you might even find that this Venus cycle now brings you a pay increase. Good luck!

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:

Mercury is now going backwards in your 12th House – that’s the part of your chart connected to your sub-conscious, the part of you that no one else sees, and the part of your chart where you keep your fears. So expect to be doing some rethinking and reconsidering re one of these subjects. Perhaps an old fear comes back so you can deal with it this time. For others, an old secret becomes current again. There could also be confusion regarding something you don’t really want to talk about. Now is the time to do what you can to release past sorrows. Where you know you have a fear which is holding you back, do all you can to see where that fear comes from and use that information to help you banish it. If you know how to meditate, now is the time to get (back) into it. You are on the verge of closing an old chapter in your life so do what you can to tidy your mind. Consider who and what you want to leave in the past. The key with Mercury retrograde is 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 Full Moon in your 5th house of fun suggests that there is likely to be some kind of tug of war going on in your heart – you have hopes and dreams that you know you have to work hard to make come true. But you also wish you could have more fun. And honestly, that is your challenge right now. You do need to work to make your dreams come true but you need to balance that out with having time out for good behaviour. For some, this month will be all about learning to be a great friend to other people while also allowing yourself the quality Me Time that we all need.

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

April is the month for you to look up an old pal as Mercury goes retrograde in your House of Friends. As the years unfold and new people come into our lives, it’s easy to get distracted, and to forget about the people we once knew and loved. However Mercury retrograde now strongly suggests you would do well to get back in touch with one or more people who still have a place in your heart, be it a romantic, friendly or even family connection. For Gemini’s not sleeping well, that should ease up around April 21.
