The planetary momentum is still overwhelmingly forward this month. Until the 27th all the planets are moving forward, and even after that date the figure is 90 per cent forward – which is still very high. Events in your life and in the world move swiftly. There is fast progress towards your goals. For those of you born early in the sign of Taurus (April 21 to April 26) this is a great period to launch new products or ventures. The planets are moving forward and you have waxing (growing) cosmic and personal solar cycles. Even Pluto’s retrograde on the 27th will not detract too much from the favourability. Your projects will have more ‘oomph’ – more cosmic support – behind them.
The Eastern sector of your chart – the sector of the Self – is ultra powerful this month. At least 80 per cent (and sometimes 90 per cent) of the planets are in the East. This was the case last month too, but now, the short-term planets are moving into their maximum Eastern position. You are in a period of maximum independence. Thus, it is easier to have things your way now. You know what’s best for you. This is the time to go for it. Make the changes that need to be made. Your happiness is up to you. You can make changes later on in the year, of course, but it will be more difficult and the outcomes less successful. Others might disagree with your plans but go for them anyway. They will come round to your point of view eventually.
You’re still in a very strong spiritual period (until the 20th). So, cultivate solitude – a great gift – and focus on your spiritual practice and studies. The new Moon of the 12th will clarify your spiritual conundrums in normal and natural ways as the month progresses. The information you need will just come.
On the 20th the Sun enters your 1st house and you begin one of your yearly personal pleasure peaks. Family members seem more devoted to you and are going out of their way for you. There will be financial windfalls and happy opportunities from the 19th onwards, as your financial planet enters your sign. You look good. You have star quality. The opposite sex takes notice.
Love also seems happy this month. The only issue is the retrograde of your love planet Pluto on the 27th. This will not stop love from happening – singles will still date and meet people – but it slows things down. Your love planet will be retrograde for many months, so go slow in affairs of the heart. There’s no rush. Let love develop as it will.
