for April 2018
by Frederick Woodruff / astroinquiry.com
ARIES (MAR 21-APR 20): There’s
a pressure in place to exert yourself more on the job front–but
expressing grace at the same time you desire control is going to be
tricky. This is a good to understand your motives. Do you want power
for power’s sake? Or do you have a unique skill that can truly
revitalize a flagging enterprise.
Lucky Days: 15 – 19
Lucky Numbers: 22 - 24
TAURUS (APR 21-MAY 21): With your ruling planet gliding through
your house of self you’re feeling the revitalizing joy of spring deep
down in your bones. This new energy can best be applied to your love
life. Venus imparts a subtle but magnetic pull on the objects (and
people) we desire. Charm is her most effective tool. Proceed and enjoy!
Lucky Days: 4 – 9
Lucky Numbers: 34 -38
GEMINI (MAY 22-JUN 21): You’re hunting for clues, trying to
determine the next step for your anticipated changes. As one of the
zodiac’s most restless signs, I have a secret for you that you’ll love:
Don’t fret over planning; focus on what’s in front of you and let
serendipity show you the way forward. You’ll love the results.
Lucky Days: 14 – 23
Lucky Numbers: 9 - 46
CANCER (JUN 22-JUL 22): You’re working backwards right now,
researching and reevaluating the last few strokes of your big master
plan. Make sure you’ve got all the resources (and details) in order.
The world is ready for you to emerge from your shell–but the next few
months require careful rethinking. We can’t wait for your big debut in
Lucky Days: 7 – 17
Lucky Numbers: 21 - 26
LEO (JUL 23-AUG 23): Think about this quote from Seneca: “Travel
and change of place impart new vigor to the mind.” A change of scenery
doesn’t need to involve an airplane–what’s crucial is a brand new way
of thinking. Your old approach to problem solving is failing. Instead
of running on fumes plan a trip, take a night school course, write a
memoir–anything but what’s familiar.
Lucky Days: 5 – 19
Lucky Numbers: 12 - 58
VIRGO (AUG 24-SEP 23): Life appears to us in stages. There are
new beginnings and middle paths, where we strive for balance and the
ability to maintain what we have created. And then there are
finales—closure. Saying goodbye to people or situations that we are
ready to release. Practice your keen ability to discriminate this month
as you shut one door and prepare to open a new one in May.
Lucky Days: 5 – 21
Lucky Numbers: 19 - 38
LIBRA (SEP 24-OCT 23): Your love of harmony keeps you leaning
towards the sweet side of life. But April finds you engaged with
intense detective work to solve a niggling problem at home. Be prepared
to take off your velvet gloves and lay down the law. Don’t sacrifice
your peace of mind for the sake of appearing easygoing. Make Wonder
Woman your mascot this month.
Lucky Days: 18 – 23
Lucky Numbers: 44 - 48
SCORPIO (OCT 24th-NOV 22nd): Jupiter in your house of you
provides a second chance to create a new lease on life. Here’s a secret
from Ralph Waldo Emerson to play with: “Creativity is a natural
extension of our enthusiasm.” Relinquish control and allow yourself to
get a little crazy with a pet project or hobby. And then look
out–you’re on your way to a new you!
Lucky Days: 11 – 18
Lucky Numbers: 40 – 43
SAGITTARIUS (NOV 23rd-DEC 21st): The centaur, your symbol,
combines the keen instincts of the horse with the wisdom of the
philosopher. You can put these talents to work this month by
spearheading a new movement or cause that benefits others. You’re a
natural instructor and coach. Ask yourself how your community might
benefit from your horsepower and insights.
Lucky Days: 5 – 30
Lucky Numbers: 4 – 51
CAPRICORN (DEC 22nd-JAN 20th): Allow yourself to take a break
this month. Celebrate all that you’ve accomplished since the start of
the new year. No one works as hard (and with such persistence) as the
goat, although sometimes too much effort results in slower outcomes.
Taking a time-out will allow you to recalibrate and get back on an
easier, more constructive path in May.
Lucky Days: 19 - 28
Lucky Numbers: 4 – 55
AQUARIUS (JAN 21st-FEB 19th): The new moon this month pushes
your curiosity into uncharted terrains. Opt for subjects that are brand
new to you; the novel and whimsical stimulate you the most. You’ve been
eager for new stories to share with friends and family and April is the
month you reveal some extraordinary discoveries.
Lucky Days: 11 - 14
Lucky Numbers: 5 – 59
PISCES (FEB 20th-MAR 20th): You’ve the patience of a saint, but
even the most tolerant of souls can become antsy and start smashing the
crockery. You hit a tipping point on the 15th when the new moon reveals
a new solution to a tiresome problem at work. Don’t hesitate, take
action and shake off the dead weight. You can worry about the mess in
the kitchen later.
Lucky Days: 3 - 20
Lucky Numbers: 36 – 51
