Almost immediately, on April 2, Mars moves to join the Sun in Aries. It'll be go, go, go with this super dose of Aries energy ... but not necessarily with much tact. At least your directness will help get the job done -- and with this much Aries, people won't hold grudges.
Then on April 3, Mars conjuncts Uranus, triggering even more Aries energy. But at the same time, tentative Saturn opposes the Sun, and even with all this vigor, moving forward will still pose a struggle.
Not one to remain on the sidelines, Jupiter tangles itself in the mix on April 6. Enjoy the good luck planet while you can! This lighter, more confident mood will be fleeting.
On April 11, Mars squares off with Pluto, leaving you trapped and frustrated. It's time to practice that old motto of 'Change what you can, and accept what you can't.' Mars eventually frees itself from Pluto, only to fall into a cranky opposition with Saturn on April 18 -- the same day as the Full Moon. Try to practice self-discipline, and watch your feet as you may become accident-prone.
April 20 brings relief when the Sun moves into placid, indulgent Taurus. The very next day, April 21, Venus moves into say-what-you're-feeling Aries, a contact that makes everyone become more romantically courageous.
An amorous tug-of-war ensues between April 23-27, as Venus meets up first with flirtatious Uranus, then with jealous Pluto. Remember that tug-of-war is a game to enjoy -- even if you find yourself pulled into the mud!
Also on April 23, Mercury turns direct, at which point the communication issues plaguing everyone this month will, at last, come to an end.
On April 28, a meeting between the Sun and Pluto brings closure to a major problem you've been battling; you'll feel great, and the lessons you learn will last a lifetime!
In the backdrop of all this activity, Neptune slowly slides into Pisces on April 4 for the first time in over 150 years. Neptune takes 15 years to move through a sign, but this month, you should start to feel some of the heightened Piscean effects this transit will bring.
