Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
Your best time to shop for new things to wear for the coming season will be while Venus remains in Aries, until the day Venus moves to Taurus, April 14. Single Libras will have the best luck in love from April 1 to 13, so if a friend offers to make an introduction to a new romantic interest for you, go for it.
When it comes to your career, you’ll have tons of opportunities in April for Mars will fill your tenth house of honors, awards, and achievement with brilliant light. This is a rare visit from Mars, suggesting you’ll bring on another client—a prestigious one, who will help you find more clients, and they would also be prestigious. When news gets around your industry about your success, others will want your services, too. You will have late April, after April 23, and most of May, to start your campaign for more work or a new job.
Mercury will go retrograde from May 29 to June 22. As you see, that cuts into part of your wonderful career phase, where Mars will work hard to help you make a bigger name for yourself. During April and the first three weeks of May, focus on finding completely new job opportunities. As you get to the third week of May, however, you will feel the approaching slowdown of Mercury, as soon as May 21 or so. Even though Mercury won’t turn retrograde until May 29, you will feel Mercury’s haywire effects start to crop up earlier in the month.
That suggests you might want to consider calling present and former clients to suggest a socially-distanced lunch or simply to say hello and thank each one for their present or past support. When Mercury is retrograde, it is always a good idea to return to your past. Experts often cite this rule: 80% of your business comes from 20% of your clients, and those clients have had a strong and comforting effect on your livelihood. Mercury retrograde is the perfect time to thank those who have always believed in you and supported you in the past. Showing appreciation would be a great way to use Mercury retrograde—those clients are special.
