Your ruler Venus ends her reverse cycle this month which means you should start to feel as though you’re actually getting somewhere again! You should now be clear on who and what you really value. Based on that information, what are you going to do? This is also a great time for you to give yourself a proper, full make-over.

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, your planet, 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.

If you’ve been slacking off, not taking care of yourself and not doing all you should at work, well, prepare to make amends! Venus is now going forwards in your 6th House of Work and Health. You’re going to have to have a little less fun and put a bit more love into getting your life running on a better schedule. This cycle is good for your professional relationship – but do make sure you and the people you work with are all on the same page in terms of expectations.

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:

It’s time to have another think re who you’re ‘getting into bed with’ both financially and sexually! Mercury is now going backwards in your eighth house so anything related to joint financial ventures, sex and intimacy is up for debate. Joint finances refers to your salary, credit cards and loans – wherever your money is tied up with someone else’s. It can also be where it’s tied up with a partner, past or present. When Mercury goes backwards in this part of your chart, you can expect to be doing some rethinking and reconsidering re one of these subjects. There could also be confusion in one of these areas. Look at how well you are relating to people on an intimate level. If you’re keep people at arms’ length (whether by being stand-offish, or by constantly cracking jokes, for example) now is the time for you to do some serious thinking re the barriers you’re putting up. This part of your chart is also about jealousy and obsession – for some, an old jealousy problem will come back. See if you can deal better with it this time around. For others, if you know have a tendency to try to control other people, now is the time to (a) deal with the fallout from that and (b) work out a better way to carry yourself. 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 Full Moon takes place in your sign which is a sure message from the skies – it’s time to stop thinking so much about someone else, and time to start investing some emotional energy into your own well-being. This is a potentially highly emotional time so don’t be surprised if life feels extra intense. The trick is not to loose your cool, and to stay mindful of the fact that what happens now can be a path to your future. The Full Moon is definitely a marker for you – it can also be a turning point. If you’re not happy about where you life is headed, it’s time to turn and face a new direction.

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 should draw a line under the past for you. If you have been having issues with someone you care about, think about what you have learned. Have you been expecting everything just to fall into place for you? Have you been trying to get away with making the least possible effort and expecting great results? If that’s the case, you should realise now that all the luck in the world (which you have) isn’t enough! You also need to work hard to get what you want, whether you’re chasing personal or even professional success and fulfilment.
