Planetary Movements

Time to clean the house and blow away the cob webs!

Planetary Movements

The Sun has started its transit Aries and your 4th solar house of domestic arrangements. It stays there until 21st of the month, when it moves into your 5th solar house when you will want to be out in the world having some fun.

New moon, 5th April in Aries, is a great time to start a new project around the home. The Full Moon, on 19th April in your 1oth solar house, is a time for you to close down any projects that have come to a natural close.

Mercury in Pisces until 18th, then Aries until the end of the month. You are likely to spend quite a lot of time around the local area.

Venus in Pisces until 21st April then Aries until the end of the month. A time to catch up with family members. After the 21st when you will be more focused on your home life.

Mars is in your 6th solar house. Work is very much at the top of the list this month.

Jupiter, is in Sagittarius all month. Retrograde (That is when a planet appears to move backwards across the sky) from 10th April for the rest of the month. Past deeds may come back to you.

Love and romance

If you are looking for a new romance, it may be closer than you think. You will be doing a lot of travelling around the local area this month and may well meet someone on these short trips. Another possibility is through a family connection, perhaps to a brother or sister at a social occasion.

In general, there will be a lot going on socially for you. This is a time for you to just enjoy being with people and this area of your life will be pleasant. Venus leaves your 3rd solar house on the 21st and moves into the domestic area of your chart. There is also an artistic flavour to this transit, in that you will want to beautify your surroundings, making them more pleasing to the eye.

Uranus continues to make its way through your 5th solar house, the house of fun bringing you into connect with the more offbeat side of life, including romantic encounters.

Prosperity and opportunity

Towards the end of the month, there is an opposition between Mars and Jupiter. As with most things in life, there is an upside and a downside. On the positive side, this time can represent a culmination of your efforts in work. You will want to take on more and more and drive forward, expanding your sphere of influence.

On the downside, you are not aware of the impact that you are having on others and can be seen as dominating and overbearing. You will not tolerate anything that stands in your way or restricts your freedom. There is a risk that you will alienate others who will not be there to help when you need it.

The middle road is usually the safest and that is the case here, as you will need to moderate and control your drive to achieve more or you may find that you exhaust yourself.

General outlook

This is the time of year when your focus will be very much centred on your home life. You may feel the need to make your home more inviting and welcoming. You may want to make the surroundings more opulent, give it some glitz or perhaps just brighten it up now that the dark nights are receding.

As both Mercury and Venus move into this sector of your chart on the 18th and 21st respectively, the plan is likely to gather momentum. Under these transits, domestically, things are likely to go quite smoothly for you without to many dramas to upset the household.
