The New Moon is in your sign this month which is a great blessing. Use April to decide what you want for yourself for the coming 12 months and make notes about how you can achieve your goals. Note that studies* show that writing down goals boosts your chances of success. Make sure you’re aiming for something you feel passionate about.

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 is now picking up speed again in your 11th House, which is the part of your chart connected to Friends and Networks. If you felt like you couldn’t really connect with your mates over the past few weeks as Venus went backwards, that can change now. You’re likely to be a whole lot happier to see people and they in turn are going to be keen to have some fun with you. “The more the merrier” would be the ideal motto for you now.

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:

There could be confusion re your image, your reputation and how others see you during this cycle. It could be time to make some important if superficial changes. For example, now is a good time to rethink your image. Even if you’re happy with who you are, it’s also a good time to ask yourself if you’re getting your message across to others? Perhaps it’s time for a revamp – your hair, your wardrobe, your website, your business cards? For others, it will run deeper as something reconnects you to your past – for some an actual trip or meeting will out you face to face with ‘the old days’. Mercury going backwards in your sign can also be a time when life seems to hit one snag after another. People find it harder than usual to understand what you’re trying to say to them. Some of you will find it impossible to write anything without at least one grammatical or spelling mistake per line! This is a small price to pay for a period when you get to re-evaluate your old life, a chance to decide if you are happy with where you have left behind and where you are going. 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 wait 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:

Now is the moment to take a good long hard look at yourself and where you are self-sabotaging yourself. If you know you are clinging to unhealthy habits (eg: smoking) which are doing you no good physically, now is the perfect time to give that habit away. If it’s some other unhealthy behaviour which is scuppering you again and again – eg: acting jealous, drinking too much – again this is the ideal time to bin the behaviour. If you’ve recently reformed (eg: started exercising properly) this is the time recommit to your new regimes. Meanwhile an important work project could come to fruition now.

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.

YOU ALSO NEED TO KNOW THAT

If you have felt like life was a bit of a drag or you were being forced to face some old fears or demons in the past month or two, relax. That cycle is now over. Whatever you have been through was heaven-sent, believe it or not. Your soul is on a mission to evolve, so have a think about how recent events and developments have made you a better person. If you’re not happy with the way things are, the good news is that that Mercury retrograde in your sign this month will give you a second chance at whatsoever you put your mind to.
