Aries: April 2017
YOUR MONEY, HOUSE, BUSINESS, APARTMENT, POSSESSIONS, CHARITY
From Friday 31st March, one or two stories here will go back and forth, because Mercury Retrograde will hit the paper trail, discussions or e-mails. Of course, you may also be affected by a wider state of flux with the sharemarkets or currency exchange, as the whole world will experience this Mercury Retrograde cycle in the money sign, Taurus, for several weeks. Near Monday 10th April things heat up and speed up, and you’ll need to step on a plan to compromise, share or divide what you have. It won’t be until Monday 21st May that you know the full and final story, though, so you may want to allow for waiting games, standstills or reversals along the way. Near April 20th and 26th there is a lot to discuss or read, but despite this apparent new beginning, your horoscope suggests there is still quite a long way to go, before you can sign off on this particular issue. There is also a long-term point to all this! From May 2018 you will experience a radical change affecting your money, business or property when freedom is on offer. A great deal of what happens then, owes much to what is being talked about now. From around this time next year, independence will matter quite as much as money, and as you will see then, the freedom ride began with a journey, now.
YOUR NAME, FACE, ROLE, TITLE, IMAGE, BRAND
Near Tuesday 28th March we have a New Moon in Aries. This would normally be some kind of relaunch or rebirth for you, perhaps with a fresh spin on how you are presented or packaged in the world. It may not be until June that the new version of yourself is actually complete, though, following long delays, changes or pauses in your plans until 15th May. A typical example would be a blog or website which stutters and stalls or cosmetic surgery appointments which need rescheduling. Another example might be an autobiography or a media spotlight on yourself which sputters and stalls, along the way. This is a very good month for first attempts, first takes or dress rehearsals but if you are going to commit to the new you, or a new version of the old you – be aware of the potential for this, over the next few weeks. Actually, there is method behind the universe’s madness, because tremendous change like this, requires more time to process and absorb than usual. Even though the stop-start progress is not what an impatient Aries typically wants, it will force you to sit still and contemplate the enormity of what is happening, because actually, you are being unshackled from people or situations which locked you down. The new you will exhilarate you, though. You’ll feel set free, Aries. Premium Member? Continue.

Taurus: April 2017
THE PURSUIT OF FREEDOM
We all know about the pursuit of happiness. The pursuit of freedom is more important, and although it’s going to take longer than you thought, it’s on the way. In fact, in about one year from now – very close to your 2018 birthday – you will be able to break out of your own box. The phrase ‘free to be me’ will ring very true then and you may surprise yourself as much as you surprise others, but your own Independence Day is coming, at least in terms of your personal appearance, your portraits, your identity and your title. In the meantime, Taurus, change happens on the inside. Looking at your chart it’s clear you either need to break away from a secret or start cultivating one, the better to feel free. Let me explain! You have major patterns involving Uranus, one sign behind you, until June. This classically means you will find your independence by pushing away from what you cover up, or finding that something you cover up actually gets you the freedom you crave. Sometimes the issue is not what is classified or confidential in your life; it’s the invisible part of yourself that never gets any credit or attention for what you do – and of course this is also concealed. Again, this invisibility may be a liberating thing to pursue now, or it may be that you need to break right away from being unseen/uncredited in order to become more independent. It’s going to take time, though, no matter which of the four scenarios you experience. Expect standstills, delays and a rewind by June.
ALL EYES ON YOU
Near Monday 10th April we have a Mars-Ceres conjunction in Taurus, your own sign, so all eyes are on you, and the action you need to take about your image, reputation, name, profile, portrait, shape, face, persona – and so on. As I’ve mentioned, it’s a bigger deal (in fact it’s life-changing) from about this time, next year. In April 2017 though we have a small start to the process, which I’d call a revolution for you. A compromise about your profile is called for. For purely practical planning purposes, make allowances for stop-start progress, as it may not be until 21st May that your whole ‘me’ agenda is complete. Normally what happens near 20th and 26th April would be pretty clear-cut and take just a week or two to happen. Instead we have Mercury Retrograde to consider, so the plans, paper trail, discussion, e-mails, texts and so on – about the way you look or appear to the world - will take you back and forth. This may be because there is a weak link in the communication chain, or because you have a technical issue. There is certainly time for you to stop and think, and that’s important. Why? Because your horoscope clearly shows that from May 2018, you will be relaunched in quite a radical way, with the most exhilarating, breathtaking and memorable changes affecting the way you are seen by the world. What happens then owes much to what happens in April, so even though it’s a long way off, it really is time to think about ‘Me.’ Premium Member? Continue.

Gemini: April 2017
YOUR SECRET LIFE, YOUR INNER MYSTERIES, YOUR INVISIBLE ROLE
Well, this is new. Your secret life, inner mysteries, classified information, invisible role or confidential concerns are now right at the top of your agenda. From May next year, when Uranus changes signs, what is happening in April will turn out to have been the first stage of a dramatic revolution which will alter everything about your inner world. For the moment, concentrate on what nobody (not even your best friend) can know, see or understand. This is because you are either operating behind the scenes with no recognition, or because you are attending to something very hard for outsiders to fathom. This matter will go backwards and forwards for weeks, so don’t be surprised if you end up absorbed by it as late as May. The idea of making a deal with yourself, or making a deal with a confidante, is very important, especially near Monday 10th April. It’s really no surprise that you have to make a fresh start a couple of weeks later, but despite all this momentum, nothing is really moving forward. In fact, it’s moving backwards and forwards, and occasionally getting stuck. Be careful with text messages, e-mails, letters and any other digital or paper trail, now through May, because the chances of it getting stuck, vanishing or lost are higher than usual. Your ruler Mercury is Retrograde. Essentially, the action in Taurus, one sign behind you, is the preamble to the revolution in about one year from now. This will set you free from a secret you are covering up at the moment, but also set you free by inviting you to become more secluded; more invisible; more fully beneath the radar. Both kinds of experience will be strangely liberating, from May 2018, and the long road to that freedom begins in April 2017.
FRIENDS, GROUPS, COMMUNITIES, SOCIAL MEDIA, CIRCLES
You’re in a cycle when you either need to leave a group/friendship behind in order to be free, or you need to bring on board a new group/friendship in order to be free. Never let it be said you don’t have choices, Gemini! Perhaps you need to quit the band, or join a new band – for example. There is also the possibility of a reshuffle in the ranks, so you may experience a classic social media swish, or the wider circle/community of people may see departures and arrivals. It’s all about chopping and changing, but with some purpose, as you may need to be far more independent. Raw honesty with yourself is a good idea. Truthfully, who or what is holding you back, when you think about your social life, group commitments or social media? Ask your gut feelings and your heart. Ask your soul. Where do you feel stifled, trapped, or basically not your own person? Where, stepping aside from all the drama this month, might you admit that someone had you locked down and locked into his/her/their agenda – but not your own free path in life? This is still all going to be happening, as late as 3rd June, so prepare for stop-start and a little bit of standstill. You should be excited about what is possible, though, as new friends and groups, or changes within existing connections, will shake things up and if there have been any shackles on you, they’ll fall right off. I don’t want to be glib about this because Uranus transits can sometimes be quite extreme, but it’s also time to take a deep breath and know, for sure, that nothing with your social life, friendships, groups or social media ever radically changes without there being a pretty decent long-term reason.

Cancer: April 2017
YOUR NETWORKS AND CIRCLES
Cancer, there clearly needs to be a reshuffle within your networks and circles, either because you want to reshape what is going on, or because there will be a departure or arrival, between now and May. This is all pretty recent, but by May 2018, you will begin to see why April 2017 was the beginning of the Big Change. In fact, by this time next year, you will be on your way to a revolution, either leaving the group/s or radically rethinking the part you play inside it. This is about more than friendship. It’s also about the needs of you, the individual, pitted against the needs of the group as a whole. It is also about how you can work your way into a group, in new ways, which allow the group itself to set you free. This may be your Twitter circle or something more formal, like a professional association, football team or political party. What may be useful, on a practical level, is a ‘wait and see’ attitude, as Mercury Retrograde is going to stall you all the way, now through May. You’ll hit e-mail, telephone or basic communication issues with people, or there will be a stop-start story which even has a possible reversal; a complete u-turn. Around 20th and 26th April you’re going to think this is a whole new start, with or without these people – but actually, nothing is fixed, firm and final until Monday 21st May. You’re being forced to wait, but sometimes waiting is useful because it makes you dig more deeply into your heart and soul, for what you truly need from these faces in your life. You’re at a real precipice this time next year, when it’s your friends, and the groups you belong to or join, which will bring a revolution. This is the first step towards the cliff, but at a certain point you will be exhilarated by letting both feet leave the ground and bungee-jumping into the new life. It’s about a year off, as I say, but I reckon you’ll sniff the air in April and see the way things are flowing.
CLIMBING EVEREST OR MOUNT KILIMANJARO
The standard take on success is that you set your sights on a lofty mountain peak like Everest or Kilimanjaro. You dream the impossible dream and start to climb. Careful not to put a foot wrong, you use every available resource you have – every helping hand to hoist you up the slopes of status, achievement, ambition, position and the rest. Now, Cancer, imagine that your social status, success, position or achievements did not depend on steadily ascending a mountain, but something quite different. April falls in the ‘definitely different’ category because this is not your old pre-2011 version of success and you are going to need to zig-zag as the lightning crackles around you. Cancer, you also need to remember that Mercury is Retrograde Shadow from Monday 27th March, so the conversations, news, paper trail or e-mails are going to take you backwards and forwards until 15th May, when the final shadow ends. Throughout it all, in terms of the people, organisations or situations which are throwing lightning bolts - it may be useful to remember all the times you have been rejected! By this, I mean you personally, or your projects or achievement, because it looks as though you’ve been in a typical rejection dance, these last few years. The long Uranus in Aries cycle began in 2011, so you’ve had about six years of hearing ‘No’ and also saying ‘No’ - thus changing course, particularly with your career, university degree, unpaid work or full-time parenting. There are other kinds of status too, like being a trophy wife or trophy husband – and we all know that. Cancer, no matter if this has been about your career or social position, each time you have said ‘No!’ or heard ‘Sorry, no’ from others – you have been pushed into becoming more independent. Well, April well and truly rocks the mountain. You are now at a point where Everest means something very different to you. This month you’ll zig zag your way up it one more time, or even decide you’re not so interested in that – more interested in scaling Mount Kilimanjaro instead. A very different sort of mountain, for the very different sort of person you have become. Other people can do the standard Everest thing, you’re doing your very own Kilimanjaro and there are so many, many ways to get to the peak. Premium Member? Continue.
Leo: April 2017
YOUR SUCCESS, AMBITION, POSITION AND MISSION
The new story with your career, university degree, unpaid work or full-time parenting that began near Friday 31st March will go backwards and forwards for weeks. The truth is, though, reality is about compromises, and the turf needs to be shared in a new way, with your boss, lecturer, staff, colleagues, clients or classmates. To make the new arrangement work, do not be pushed or rushed near Monday 10th April. Everyone deserves his/her/their fair share of power and control. Be aware, too, that communication is not all it could be, so the best use of your time in April is to treat the paper trail, phone calls, meetings or emails as a dress rehearsal. Do get things in writing and read them in detail. Allow for gaps caused by technology, or human frailty, or extreme weather, or the Number 2B bus not turning up outside Woolworths! Leo - in terms of your general success in life, what comes to light around Thursday 20th April is very important; what you hear, discuss or read then will lead you straight to a fresh start near the New Moon on 26th April. Just be aware that there will be about another four weeks of standstills and stop-start. In fact, this new project, role, reshuffle or arrangement may not truly settle until Monday 21st May. In the meantime, if your instincts tell you this is all about a much bigger revolution in your career, you are correct. You will see why from May 2018; in about a year. It will be very exciting – and set you free. I can’t emphasise enough what a massive revolution this is going to be, in about one year from now. You could switch jobs, industries, professions, or do something more drastic. Therefore, even though April and May involves muddles and occasional befuddlement, it is buying you time to think (and feel, very important) because you really do need all the time available, just to process and absorb what is going on. This is the diving board you walk, into the big, sparkling, strange new pool in May 2018. You’ll be swimming in there for years.
TRAVEL, PUBLISHING, EDUCATION, FOREIGN AND REGIONAL DIFFERENCES
Leo, it’s Independence Day again. From Monday 27th March the stage is set for rewinds, reviews and rehearsals with your revolution with planes, trains, books, courses, workshops, foreign people and places – and the rest. Just put the ‘re’ prefix in front of everything now changing your world and you’ll get the picture. When you look up and see the sliver of the New Moon, there will be a new chapter in your life, on the table, but it will be rewritten, paused and rewritten again in April and May. Why? Retrograde planets! Near the 11th and 14th of April the sheer pace of change will take your breath away and you will need to keep all four paws on the ground then, to stay centred and deal with what is whipping around your head. The situation with your journey, relocation, book, course, website, workshop, foreign or regional connection in question will completely alter your plans. Normally you would roll up your sleeves and set about making the change, but the truth is – you can’t do that, because the people or situation around you will be stuck for a while, with a different monetum - or the whole situation will shift every time you look at it. This gives you until June to chop and change, too - along with the story now unfolding. What’s the point of all this, though? To be free. To be independent. To be liberated. To feel the space around you. Leo, Uranus transits like this usually involve hearing or saying ‘No.’ So you might be turned down to study at the Sorbonne, or you might turn down a foreign exchange student. You’ll know exactly the ‘No’ I am talking about, but please trust it when it happens. Without it, you would not dramatically change the way you teach, travel, study, write, read or see the world, and you have to trust the astrology here – it really is to your ultimate advantage, in terms of how free you are on this planet.

Virgo: April 2017
TRAVEL, WEB, EDUCATION, PUBLISHING, FOREIGNERS
Virgo, you are in an odd situation with your trip, website, course, workshop, book or foreign connection. There is a tremendous need for action, on near April 10th and the pace is picking up, yet your ruler Mercury is Retrograde Shadow from 31st March, so this is going to be like revving up at the green lights, only to find you have a strange green-amber-red-green-amber situation happening elsewhere. What to do? Well, common-sense says, you could take your time – and in fact play for time, if possible. Even though you may have news, paperwork, e-mails or a meeting to attend to near Thursday 20th April and a new start near Wednesday 26th, it may not be for another three weeks that everything is final, in any detail. Just knowing that might assist. Sometimes life is a rough edit, not a final cut. There may be a lot of chopping and changing in April and if you can possibly arrange the luxury of a long process, or a leisurely rehearsal for the final outcome, it could help to take the heat off. There is more to this than meets the eye, as you may suspect. In fact, in about one year from now, you start the biggest revolution of your life as a traveller, migrant, teacher, student, writer, publisher and so on. It will go on for years and it will utterly change your life. April 2017 is the starting point. It’s not a bad idea to ask yourself questions about independence in relation to this – independent publishing? Perhaps, solo (independent) travel? You get the picture. Questions asked now start a crucial discussion with yourself, which will transform everything from mid 2018.
FINANCE, BUSINESS, PROPERTY, CHARITY, POSSESSIONS
There is always a solution on this cycle, Virgo – and often a fantastic opportunity to gain or save. No matter how unpredictable or erratic your progress this month, try to see that you are being allowed more space to experiment and explore, to your advantage. As an earth sign, Virgo, I am sure you would prefer the steady hum of security, but for many years now, you have been dealing with a constant churning which has affect your bank account, house, company, apartment and so on. Please allow for a story which began around March 27th to take an odd course. Your ruler Mercury is retrograde in not one, but two zones of your chart at the same time. One of them is financial, and from late March until 15th May you will see one matter go back and forth. The Full Moon on Tuesday 11th April will lay everything on the line for you, but make allowances for issues with communication, computers, transport, the post, unreliable human nature and so on. Even though you’ll have to make an important choice near that date (and put a price on some aspects of your life) it is also an odd time, when it’s wise to get things in writing and then read the details with a microscope. Jupiter is backing you, so there will be useful answers and perhaps even rather profitable advantages for you during this odd period, but do be aware that Mercury is your ruling planet so when he’s retrograde it pays to put ‘re’ in front of everything. You may have to renegotiate, or look at product recall, or just retract a plan. I say this a lot in your predictions, I know, but please put a price tag on freedom and ask yourself what you’d pay for it. Freedom is not purchased in a catalogue, but it’s priceless, glittering, precious and remarkable.

Libra: April 2017
HE (OR SHE) WHO MATTERS MOST
It is one thing to feel the emotions, where the other person is concerned, but April and May will be months of discussion, with the issue going back and forth between you. The lack of certainty, security or stability with mere words…makes you go into your feelings. And actually, Libra that is the whole point. This person, described by the planets in your Seventh House of partnership or enmity, is either your former, current or potential partner. Perhaps he/she is an enemy or opponent. See yourself on one end of the scales. He or she is on the other end. That is your chief concern in April! As always, Libra,you take pride in being able to adjust your end of the scales (or the see-saw) so that the other person can meet you in the middle. Some people would say that this is what marriage or divorce is all about. Professional partnerships, too. Perhaps people politics, but of a very particular one-on-one kind…Just be aware that the path of communication will not be straight, Libra, and plan around that. Mercury Retrograde Shadow is upon you, from 27th March to the last shadow on 15th May. Anything from unreliable information to a missing letter could be the story here; sometimes it’s just crossed wires on the internet. At its worst this cycle produces weasel words and false promises; it really depends on your personal birth chart. Libra, the bigger theme in your life as a result of what goes down with this person, is the pursuit of freedom and independence. It takes great insight to appreciate when you have been liberated from something (or someone) that restricted you, but what you are experiencing in April, is yet another example of this constant process of radical change – and release. This may explain why so many other Librans you know have seen partnership rifts over the last few years, or chopping and changing with lovers. In other cases there have been battles at work – thumping rifts - which have, oddly, resulted in Librans winning liberty for themselves. April 11th and 14th (allow a day or two either side) seem to be a case in point, as you will once again be staring at the person on the other end of the see-saw or scales. It may take a lot of stop-start discussion, paperwork or e-mails until May, but once again, you are on your way. Space is the final frontier, in science fiction. Space is actually what you need, crave, deserve, have earned – and what you are absolutely going to get, one way or another. Crack your own Easter egg, Libra! (It’s only love or war).
FINANCE, CHARITY, BUSINESS, PROPERTY
From October this year, you will begin a life-changing cycle when your financial world will transform, allowing you to break new ground in your life and explore money, property or business in a radically different way. It begins with money saved (or made) from October, with a second revolution starting from May 2018. This is all a long way off, but I mention it now, as your plans for the company, house, apartment, business and so on, may already involve long-term strategies. What happens in April and May is part of this story. It’s also rather muddled and there may be quite a few weeks of stop-start with the paperwork, discussion or e-mails. Some of this can be laid squarely at the feet of the Wall Street bull, because we are experiencing Mercury Retrograde in Taurus, the money sign, from 31st March to 21st May, and global ripples may hit you. For a simple life, you may want to insist on important financial, business or property matters on paper, or at least in writing – and then go over the details very carefully. The Mercury Retrograde cycle can come down to lost keys and missing documents sometimes; keep your beady eye on the small things! If you can set aside April as a ping-pong discussion about the money, so much the better. This cycle turns up a lot when people are on the path to marriage or moving in together – but also on the path to separation or divorce. Why? Because it’s that combination of independence and love, but also money and property. There are a few variations on the theme, Libra. We have to remember that all the action from this time next year, is about deadly serious arrangements, like the last will and testament, the inheritance, the children’s share of the property – but also rather more unusual deals you have going down. Some of this, for some of you, is about the Mafia or the insurance. It’s about the brothel or the bedchamber (and the cash). Premium Member? Continue.
Scorpio: April 2017
THAT MAN. THAT WOMAN.
This month it’s time to talk, or deal with paperwork, that powerfully affects the relationship you have with your former, current or potential partner. This also applies to enemies, rivals or opponents. From Friday 31st March you can bank on the conversation going in stops and starts, though, as Mercury is retrograde shadow. It may take as long as 21st May, almost two months, for every fine detail to become firmly settled with this man (or woman). The issue may be something as simple as a technical error, or perhaps a dramatic change of mind (or heart) from one end, either yours, or the other person’s. Try to allow as much time as possible for the big compromise, which becomes very clear to you near Monday 10th April. At that point, the heat will be on, but try not to be rushed or pushed, and play a long game if you can. This really will feel like a chess game, particularly near Thursday 20th April, yet despite the feeling that you are making and withdrawing moves, or seeing him (or her) do the same, there is a purpose to the stop-start chess. You basically need to get the measure of the situation with as much time as possible, so that even if the new beginning near Wednesday 26th April is still not the full story, at least by the third week of May you can say, you’ve been given time to think – or time to reshape the discussion. If you are psychic I am sure you know that from May 2018 major changes are going to affect the relationship, so April-May 2017 could well be playing a part in all that. This April is not a bad time to play ‘What if? ‘ with yourself. So, what if there was genuine space, freedom, liberty and independence in the chemistry with a particular person? Or with the institution of partnership in general. Or divorce. Or marriage. Or common law marriage. These mind games will become real, thumping heart games from 2018 onwards, for many years, but it’s not a bad idea to ponder, muse and mull while Uranus is one year in the distance, and April 2017 surely is the time.
YOUR LIFESTYLE, BODY AND WORKLOAD
From Monday 27th March the discussion or paper trail affecting your workload, or your body, will go backwards and forwards, so allow for stop-start progress. Mercury Retrograde Shadow is upon us and it may be as late as 15th May before you can say you know precisely where you stand. This may be the month to focus on doctors, food, drugs, drink, fitness or healers. It’s certainly the month to look at your workload and your sense of service and duty to other people, no matter if the issue is a deadline, a delivery or housework. The faster you can let go of old, fixed ideas about how everything should be, the easier your life will become. In fact, the idea is to experiment on a daily basis, if necessary, to find out what you need to invent or create in your life, to cope with changing conditions. Think of your lifestyle as clay on the potter’s wheel and start to find a rhythm which suits you, so you can reshape and craft the situation. This will go across all aspects of your world, from sleep (quality and duration) to regular tasks and chores (your work ethic) into questions about your Me Time as well, and what you do with it. Uranus is the planet which runs your life here, as it has for many years, and this cycle is associated with regular revolutions, which change everything very suddenly. This is another one. Ask yourself what you need freedom from – that’s partly the point of all this. You are having the same planet (Uranus) in two cycles, back to back, which is why I’m talking to you so much about being free. It’s not unusual to go through stuff on this cycle which – at the time – turns aspects of your world upside-down, yet makes perfect sense months later. Why? Because you realise you were just like a fish being scooped up in a hand, from the water, and released again, to swim in your own direction. Had you not been scooped up by the hand of fate, you might have been caught in/stuck in…heaven knows what! Premium Member? Continue.
Sagittarius: April 2017
THE DAILY PATTERN OF YOUR LIFE
Sagittarius, the daily pattern of your life will be affected by the long Mercury Retrograde cycle, which begins with the shadow on Friday 31st March. It looks as though there will be a reshuffle at work, or a switch in rights and responsibilities. If you don’t work, this applies to university life, or housework. What happens near Monday 10th April makes it necessary for everyone to agree on some kind of roster system, but it may not be until 21st May that everything is in place. Be aware of that when you are talking and try to get things in writing if you can. Some Sagittarians will have major stories taking place with new jobs or projects at this time. The other central issue throughout April and May is your body and the choices you are making about food, drugs, doctors, drink, healers, fitness and the rest. Near 20th April light will be shed on something you need to know (or discuss). That’s not the end of the story, though. For a further three-four weeks you may find things are rewritten around you, so that it takes longer than usual to call a situation final. There may be rescheduling, for example. Sagittarius, this is all a really early step in a very long path, which becomes bigger and more obvious from May 2018. If you are psychic you’ll know it now. You are simply not going to work the way you did, live the lifestyle you had, or go about your business in the same way! It begins when Uranus moves into Taurus in May 2018, but as we have a fair amount of activity in Taurus in April 2017, this is like the first course on a huge menu of change. It’s not a bad idea at such times to be ruthlessly honest with yourself about what you do/don’t want to do, in terms of your career, housework, university degree, unpaid work, service, duty, full-time parenting and the rest. Nobody else can hear and you are the only audience. What you pick up now, helps you wake up faster, sooner. That will save you a great deal of time in about one year from now. April will help you tune in, as you will be receiving signals from your body, or your job.
LOVERS OR YOUNG PEOPLE
Your house of courtship, romance, children and young adults is showing the usual ‘regular revolution’ that you see every year. Each time this happens, you are shown a new way to separate yourself from circumstances (and sometimes people) which restricts you. It takes great insight and honesty to admit this, sometimes, but if you can step back from your love life, your parenting, or some other role with younger people – you will soon see why you are locked into a system, or confined by a particular set-up. Sagittarius, it is also possible that you know, immediately, who or what is tying you down. Normally, the changes which destiny requires would take 2-3 weeks, but as there will be a lot of stop-start conversation, or even a standstill with plans, you may have to keep talking until 15th May. The background to all this is really about your continuing independence, and that has been evolving over a number of years. It is certainly time to make your romantic life, or your connection with younger people, a unique statement again. If that means another rewrite, or even a radical edit, then so be it. There are an awful lot of restrictions, rules, do’s and don’ts about parenthood (you may have noticed). Likewise the family, and what it means to continue the tree. Then we have the whole lucrative business of dating, mating and relating to consider. Everyone has an opinion, but with Uranus completing his cycle in your Fifth solar house of love, sex, romance, children, pregnancy, contraception, fertility, adoption and the rest – you are entitled to do what you want, when you wish, as you wish. As long as you are allowing space for others, your horoscope suggests that you can rightly claim that freedom in April. And the beat goes on.

Capricorn: April 2017
LOVERS OR CHILDREN IN YOUR WORLD
Capricorn, the conversation which begins regarding your lover, or the role of children in your life, begins now, but will stall – or take you back and forth. News which reaches you around 31st March, 1st April is not the final story, so allow for that as you go through April. This may be about child custody for some of you, or the relationship you have with the in-laws. In other cases perhaps your concern is with your own lover, first and foremost. Things are moving along at a cracking pace near Monday 10th April when it will become clear that a new deal is imminent. The trick is leaving the heat out of discussions, as although it would be very easy for one issue to flare up with you, him or her – it’s obviously not going to make the compromise any easier. Long-term, this matter is important, as you will see from May 2018, when nothing short of a revolution comes to stay in your life. That’s a long way off, but for now, give yourself until at least 21st May to sort out this necessary new arrangement. Near April 20th and 26th you’re on your way, but there will probably be a standstill, waiting game or even a reversal within four weeks. A typical example would be your godson’s education, or the path of true love not running smooth. Yet, perhaps you also need time to spend, as you must fully absorb the implications of this new set-up in your life. It might help to remind yourself that everyone wants to have their hands on the controls; that’s actually just human nature. The art of managing that is April’s challenge. In about one year from now, everything that went down this month will make more sense to you. At the moment it’s the first course of a future menu, which will radically change the way you see the younger generation, and also intimacy, for many years to come. It’s not a bad idea to be open, flexible and to see what comes this month. It’s mind or heart yoga for your own best future.
HOUSE, HOUSEHOLD, TOWN, COUNTRY, FAMILY, FLAT
You’ve become an independent home-owner or renter with a capital I for Independent, in recent years. Alternatively you’ve found your own sweet alternative way to have a house or apartment, or rotate them. Making a complete break with the past as it stood pre-2011 has been about circumstance as much as choice, but it’s far more exciting and liberating to do it your way, correct? Now, you are being given a chance to go further with the new path in your life, whatever front door you have, or once had. In fact, you’re already on track, given what happened in the closing days of March. It’s also clear that you are not about to give up on innovating and inventing – other people have their way of handling family, local issues, their sense of national identity, the house, apartment or garden. You very much have yours! Having blazed a trail here, you are also in the right place to add to your original idea. What we have here is a month full of the unlikely and the unusual, but as long as you are prepared for zig-zag progress you should get a lot from it. The zig-zag comes from Mercury Retrograde. Until 15th May you may find the conversation is circular or the plans go back and forth. That’s why it’s a very good idea to read the fine print. There is a lot more to this than just a decision about a relative, or the kitchen! Home is not so much where the heart is, as where the freedom currently resides. If you want to enjoy that freedom to the hilt, you’ll be open to even quite radical new lines of enquiry. Finally, Capricorn, depending on your personal chart, there may be a massive event involving a relative or your home; perhaps your town or country. The best thing I can tell you is that the lightning bolt illuminatesthe sky, and although we feel stunned, even shocked, sometimes we need that light to see clearly and understand (and recognise) what or who had to leave us. Why it had to leave us at that particular point. Why freedom is calling for us and them. Premium Member? Continue.
Aquarius: April 2017
HOUSE, APARTMENT, FAMILY, HOUSEHOLD, TOWN, COUNTRY
Given that you’re all over the discussions as you read this, or at least coming to terms with some very new news – you’ll need to devote more time than you thought to home, family and related issues. Around Monday 10th April it will become clear that changes need to happen now, even though they can’t. This may involve a relative, flatmate, or wider issues about the actual space you’re living in. Even your local area or country, if we’re going to take ‘home’ as being your wider location. Aquarius, getting the pace right is what April is all about and it may be useful to think about May as your deadline. Around 20th April and 26th April you’re deeply into the Mercury Retrograde cycle so ‘looping the loop’ is really what it’s all about. I’m sure you know Mercury is the planet which rules meetings, paperwork, e-mails, negotiation and the rest. The fact that this planet appears to be stalling and retracing his steps, tells you all you need to know about April/May. You could easily be doing the same thing, so read the fine print and get everything in writing. Keep one eye on the future too. From May 2018 there will be quite radical changes with your house or apartment so when you’re talking, do look to the long-term and ask yourself ‘What if…?’ because life will be very different. It is quite useful to entertain these impossible possibles, and think like Lewis Carroll at such times. April 2017 is one pot of marmalade, but from May 2018 it’s a different breakfast altogether. As it will involve close family, your patriotism, real estate prices and so much more – tracking this month for changes and being honest with yourself about what needs to change, will make the transition so much easier.
INTERNET, EDUCATION, PUBLICATION, COMMUNICATION.
Uranus in Aries has been with you for many years, and in that time – for different reasons – you have been experimenting wildly with your website, blog, smart phone – and perhaps with public speaking, singing or songwriting, acting, debating or other ways to use your voice. Art, multimedia and poetry are also channels for your ideas and thoughts. April brings yet another turn of the wheel as you will find a new pathway for experimentation opens up. You are actually finding tremendous new freedom on a regular basis these days and it may help to remember life before 2011, when your hands were so tied! Recalling the tremendous amount of limitation and restriction upon you will make April even more enjoyable. Just remember that there is a fair amount of rejection going on as well. You maybe rejecting – or others may be rejecting you! This is pretty typical of the cycle and it loosens things up, breaks up the old ground, and allows new things to grow. The process will take longer than usual, because of Mercury Retrograde, so try to factor in u-turns or waiting games, specifically affecting your project, course, idea or concept. It will all be in place from 15th May, though. In the meantime have Plan B and keep an eye on the technology. All this chopping and changing is pretty familiar with your concepts, projects, ideas and so on – because it’s been there since 2011. Premium Member? Continue.
Pisces: April 2017
CONNECTIONS AND COMMUNICATION
Pisces, what’s on your agenda as April begins (the idea, website, concept, course book and so on) is not fixed. In fact, it will be in a state of flux until May, as you go back and forth with details. There may be computer issues behind this, or perhaps a paper trail with someone which has gaps. This Mercury Retrograde cycle is also associated with people who change their minds. Just being aware of this will help you. Treat April as a first draft or dress rehearsal, leaving May for the edit. You’re actually going to remember the significance of this month, in around one year from now, because from May 2018 the most radical change to your internet life (in your lifetime) is coming. I’m not going to say too much about that just yet, because the revolution is such a long way off. Still – if you are psychic, as so many Pisceans are, you may already know that independence is the goal, and that Independence Day online will be about 12 months away. Right now, though, you’ve really got to be flexible enough to deal with the flux around the current project or plans, and that’s what April is all about. What looks and feels like a new beginning around 26th April could go round the houses until 21st May so just be aware of that. The Third House of your horoscope, ruled by Taurus, is where the revolution begins in about one year from now. The Third House describes couriers, radio, television, newspapers, books, ebooks, the worldwide web and all the radical innovations to come, from May 2018. This may embrace the smart phone; it may embrace a total rejection of the internet. We count poetry here too, and all forms of non-verbal communication, like art. Pisces, what goes down in April 2017 is a big hint about life from May 2018, into 2019, 2020 and beyond. Ask yourself who or what stops you from being free to communicate your feelings and thoughts. Could be an interesting answer.
MONEY, BUSINESS, PROPERTY, CHARITY, POSSESSIONS
Cast your mind back to 2010 and earlier and you’ll soon realise how revolutionary the last half-dozen years has been. This perspective will help you get the measure of the changes to come, in April, as they are part of a wider pattern with your finances or property which all adds up to one thing – you turning into an independent operator. If you are honest about what it took to get you here, it’s been a combination of turning away from what/who does not sit right with you – and also hearing the word ‘No’ from those you assumed would say yes. This is the famous Rejection Dance of the Uranus cycle, when you turn your back on everybody else’s financial, business, charity, ownership or property approach and find your own. I suspect there will be even more invention going on in April, but just bear in mind Mercury Retrograde. You’re going to hit delays, reversals or standstills so please get everything in writing, then read the fine print, terms and conditions. This odd cycle commenced on 27th March, which probably explains the letter, e-mail or conversation you’re sitting on, as you read this. It will not end until 15th May. There are so many different ways this could pan out for you, but if you stick with the idea of separating yourself from situations, organisations or people which make you dependent, you’ll be on track. I also need to tell you that you’re in a beneficial cycle not possible in 12 years when you can save or make a small fortune, so keep looking broadly and widely for possibilities. Premium Member?
