A Note from Susan Miller
As you start to read your April forecast, you will see that we have a difficult full moon on April 19. Everyone will likely notice it in different ways. Upon hearing this, before you stand on your desk with a bull horn, screaming, I knew it! I’m doomed! Wait!
While it is true that Uranus, planet of sudden, unanticipated events, will be in direct opposition to the full moon in Aries on one side of the heavens, and 180 degrees away, on the other side, Uranus will conjunct the Sun (a potentially nerve jangling aspect), I know that when there are difficult aspects, there is always a remedy—and I’ve found the perfect one!
Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
You have a big month ahead. Mars, the vitality planet will be in Gemini from March 30 to May 15. You’ve waited two years for this high-octane planet to arrive in Gemini to defend and energize you, so this is great news. Mars will give you courage, determination, and drive and will favor you above all other signs starting immediately. With Mars in Gemini, use these precious coming six weeks to plant seeds for a desired outcome to a venture, relationship, or goal that you hope to lead to success. I don’t know the most meaningful desire you hold in your heart, for Mars in Gemini keeps that hidden from me, but you know what it is—it’s something that would change your life for the better, making you happier, calmer, and more optimistic. What seeds can you plant in April to make your aim a reality?
You are fortunate that Mercury has finished being retrograde. Everyone feels some of the frustration when Mercury is out of phase, such as the infamous delays, forgetfulness, mix-ups, lost items, and missed phone calls, among other things. As a Gemini, however, you feel the thwarting effects more because Mercury is your ruling planet. Don’t be upset that Mercury rules your sign (and Virgo)—this is the planet responsible for your agile mind, rapid responsiveness, adaptability, and awesome talent in the communication arts. Be glad Mercury has regulated his orbit while Mars is entering Gemini to help you. No waiting! You can use April productively from the very first day.
Speaking of the start of April, Mercury will be scheming tricks when nearly conjunct Neptune on April 1, and you may deal with pranks on April Fool’s Day. I hope you don’t mind April Fool’s jokes because they could proliferate more than usual. Be on alert and don’t fall for them!
On April 5 you have a new moon in Aries, the sign of adventurous fresh starts. The new moon will fall in your eleventh house, which rules your deepest hopes and wishes, including what you might have your heart set on buying (whether big or small purchases, from a house to a smartphone). The eleventh house rules the friendships you have now and the new ones you may make in the weeks ahead. This part of your chart also rules clubs, both those you joined in the past and/or a new one you might join now. The eleventh house also rules charities and humanitarian efforts you might become involved in to make the world a better place. Finally, the eleventh house rules profits made from the effort you’ve put in your own business that you are now ready to reap. (This last one applies only to those who are self-employed.)
