Horoscopes for April 2018 ♡
Horoscopes by Astrologer, Miriam Nyx
This month, the Sun travels from Aries to Taurus, asking the whole world to chill and smell the flowers. However, Mercury is still retrograde in Aries until April 15th, so just roll with the punches (unless you know, there are literal punches, let’s hope not). Softening everything is Venus is at home in sensual Taurus, asking us to celebrate our own taste and beauty. Later on, it transits into Gemini, making us more concerned with other women’s beauty and graces, but also compelling us to seek inspiration from each other.
The first half of April may feel as if you’re on the cusp of something but you just can’t organize your thoughts or get your stuff together to launch. This should be over by the middle of the month, but then a new crop of worries emerges. Think of this time as an opportunity to figure out what you’re really made of. If you need to talk, you’ll find that friends are welcoming.
Your month is coming up, and your energy is coming back. Insecurities may hold you back in the first half of the month, but it doesn’t really appear that way. No matter what’s happening, you’re always pleasant, even if you’re not in the mood to talk. Avoid dealing with stress by indulging in too many sweet or in shopping or you may be in over your head.
Whatever it is you hope for in the future, you may have to wait a little longer to get it going. This doesn’t mean not dreaming, but rather, learning how to deal with obstacles. Frankly, you may run out of steam by mid-month and want to just chill for a while, which may be exactly what you need. Stopping to smell the roses refreshes you and makes you more attractive others.
Career concerns are on your mind at the beginning of the month, particularly having your ideas respected. Misunderstandings between you and you superiors may make you feel as if you’re going to succeed, and that perhaps you may not have what it takes. That’s just fear talking, and it will pass. People find you pleasant even if you can’t see that. You’re extra careful to be pleasant even if you’d rather not.
Your ambition is going to reawaken this month, so get ready! It may feel as if the only way to get ahead is to hit the road and find greener pastures. Look at places you think you could live or new businesses you could work in. Start applying and interviewing in the beginning of the month and say yes to anything that comes out of it, especially if it’s a new opportunity.
You lighten up this month, largely because others around you lighten up. You’re able to determine what everyone is about despite whatever front they put up. Let your new insight guide you and your decisions. Your heart will continue to deceive you, but if you catch yourself before you create too much of fantasy, you’ll be the one sought after by others rather the one pining away in unrequited love.
Others need you, particularly because you have clarity where they have confusion. Be careful with being too demanding in your relationships; especially if you’re in a romantic relationship. You’ll want to jump ship later on if the waters get too deep now. Go in slowly and steadily. Moderation may not come easy this month, but you’ll want to tighten your belt when it comes to intimacy later this month if it’s just empty action.
April is about romance for Scorpio, but it doesn’t feel that way in the beginning – it could be that you’re just minding your own business and someone sweeps you off your feet, or you’re surprised to find a secret admirer has been waiting for you. As the month goes on, be careful not to focus too much on someone else and too little on yourself or the things you have to get done.
Sagittarius has been working her butt off, and she may have to stay that way. Plans with friends may not materialize, but the work will always be there. The good news is that you’re probably seeing some gains if you’ve been working hard and staying the course. Insecurities about your ability to take care of yourself eases up, and you’ll be dying to catch up with your friends and just enjoy life again.
The good news is that you don’t care about the noise in the world, and you can focus on what really matters to you. Be careful about arguing with your family, especially about trivial things. You can smooth most things over, but you may need to prove yourself to someone. This is your specialty, and you can exceed expectations near the end of the month if you have the nerve and can stay objective.
You need a vacation, and even if you can’t take one now, you should try to give your brain a little break, because you’ve been in overdrive. You don’t have to be the one doing all the thinking for everyone; you deserve some time to simply enjoy life. Your sense of style is particularly strong this month, and you attract friend and your pick of admirers. Ride this wave all the way into May.
This month, you realize it’s probably not you, but rather the people around you who are insane. Okay, so maybe you’re all a little squirrely, but that’s not your fault. It may be too hard to get out of your head because it’s prettier in there. Write your ideas down or put them into some sort of written form, as they can inspire you later this spring when you’re ready to put yourself out there. ♡
