Monthly Horoscope Events for April 2017

New Moon in Taurus - Apr 26 2017 ~ Simple Pleasures

New Moon

 The New Moon on Wednesday April 26, 2017 is at 6° Taurus. A new moon marks the beginning and end of the 28 day lunar cycle. Sun conjunct Moon gives an invigorating burst of energy and initiative. Old habits, behaviors and beliefs can be questioned as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.

This New Moon is blissfully unaspected aside from a trine to the North Node. Seeds of intention planted at this time aids spiritual progress. With ruler Venus precariously on the last degree of Pisces, rest, relaxation and appreciating simple pleasures may be the best way of working with this quiet lunation. Mercury conjunct Uranus gives flashes of insight and higher awareness of your inner demons. This electrifying influence on your brain makes this an ideal time for any mental or creative work requiring originality. Saturn trine Uranus represents a transition phase in life. This is the ideal time to make positive changes in your life because they should run smoothly.

The major planetary configuration this year, Saturn trine Uranus, is activated by the messenger Mercury. This brings stunning insights and understanding which will lead to a positive transformation. Revealing your inner demons will be very liberating. Shining light on such dark and sinister energies makes them weaker. Discovering and accepting your dark side can lead to a rapid and positive transformation. This reduction in negative karma will relieve you of guilt, shame, self loathing and fear.

Full Moon in Libra - Apr 11 2017 ~ Good Fortune

Full Moon

The April 11th full moon at 21°32′ Libra falls in Libra decan 3 and is extremely sensitive to the collectives’ emotions. It could offer some respite to difficult situations that may be occuring within your relationships. The Moon will conjunct Jupiter in Libra within 4 degrees.This should make you feel happy and content. You will want to share you good mood, which is ideal for socializing and partying. This is a time of optimism, generosity and good fortune. Luck is on your side your but most rewarding should be your emotional and spiritual growth. The Jupiter retrograde period can bring success and luck in love but since it is opposing Uranus things will seem to be very unexpected or our luck could change at any moment. Domestic bliss and relationship happiness are also threatened by the Sun and Uranus opposition, and by Pluto square Moon. 

Sun conjunct Uranus does have positive attributes. Apart from being exciting, it opens up your consciousness to higher vibrations. Change is just a part of full moon April 2017. The manner in which you react to change is critical. Impulsive decisions could turn a minor drama into total chaos. Try to remain aware of subconscious urges to break free, antagonize, or tease just for attention and excitement. Unexpected events, mood swings or emotional detachment can put a lot of strain on an existing relationship. This is time when luck and fate collide out of the blue sky.  If you want to improve your odds of something good happening, keep your eye on the horizon and for Godsakes, leave the house. Remember that, “life favors the risk-taker” and people who expect good things to happen, have good things happen more often than those who lack optimism.

The Libra Full Moon, whilst generously accented by its closeness to Jupiter, may have us weighing up the costs to our freedom in our relationships. It makes me think of that track by the Clash ‘should I stay or should I go’.

Saturn Retrograde in Sagittarius - Apr 06 2017 until Aug 25 2017 ~ Learning Lessons


Saturn stations retrograde on 6 April 2017 at 27°47′ Sagittarius. The retrograde phase of Saturn and its effects depends on the position of Saturn in your birth chart. If the placement of Saturn is not favorable then it may bring delays and difficulties in your life and personal relationships. Bad transits to Saturn during this time may make things worse, so it is important to look more into the areas those transits affect in order to not let any relationship issues get out of hand. Saturn has always been regarded in a negative light in classic astrology and has been known to be the lord of Karma. However, in more reccent times we regard Saturn in a more positive way, where the more work and effort we put in to ourselves, our work and our loved ones, the more likely we can avoid any harsh negative karma that we may have accumulated in the past.

Saturn entered the retrograde zone on 30 December 2016 at 21°10′ Sagittarius. This first shadow phase lasts until Saturn retrograde on April 6. During this time you may find some tests and challenges that relate to work and career, as well as your current financial situation. Saturn will turn retrograde whilst there is a Venus Square to Saturn which will add problems to do with finance and relationships that are already rocky will need extra work to maintain during this period. You may feel like avoiding any problems with your love life but it is important to try and maintain healthy communication so that you dont end up causing more problems. 

 It is common under this influence to feel lonely and depressed. Money can also be tight so avoid a tendency toward wasting money and other resources. Hard work is needed to maintain your present relationship, career or other valued part of life.  Some will be burdened by guilt, while victims will feel the pain of very old wounds. Initial healing of the extreme sadness and misfortune should have begun during Saturn retrograde. Sun trine Moon together with Mars trine Pluto would have started the healing process. You will learn many lessons both good and bad until Saturn turns direct on August 25

Use the form above to enter birth times to calculate chart. The chart calculator will take a few seconds to produce your personalized created chart. There is a natal chart view as well as a summary page and each section supplies descriptions on each planetary influence such as mercury,venus and mars.

To find out about your current planetary cycles, the personalized forecasts will give you the updates about your birth chart with details about the domains that are activated during the planetary transits. The monthly horoscopes utilize the planets Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars predominantly to determine the effects on your Sun sign. If you have an exact the time personal horoscope can be drawn up and these transits and then looked at with respect to the rising sign at a time you are born. In Western astrology both the Sun sign astrology and rising sun astrology are given validity. Vedic astrologers calculate the transits with respect to the lunar position more than the rising sign.

The planets are always moving around the zodiac. As they make angles (aspects) to places where planets Were when you were born, things will Tend to happen in your life. This section lists what each individual aspect means. Several possibilities are listed for each transit since they can work out in different ways, depending on the context of your birth chart, and, of course, your stage of life. Transiting Uranus making a conjunction with the natal position (the placement in the birth chart) of Venus will not produce a love affair in the horoscope of a two-year old. Nor will Jupiter crossing the Mid-Heaven of a homeless drug addict suddenly produce “advancement in career”. Another word of warning. Never try to make a forecast based on just one factor alone. Look at them all because you never can tell. Beginners always make that mistake (and even some practicing astrologers!). That Jupiter aspect you were counting on to increase your money may be canceled out by that accident aspect between Uranus and Mars. Be sure to Check everything before making that forecast.

Many astrologers base transits on the movements of the Sun to different houses of your horoscope (see the Houses of the Zodiac). Usually by studying month by month where the Sun will be, we can gain an insight into the upcoming trends fairly accurately leading us to develop monthly horoscopes. These transits of the inner planets when making contact with the other planets will obviously trigger the more important events and this is how we can forecast what and when the important highlights of the year will occur for each star sign.

The rising sign on this free astrology report is different than I expected, why?

Provided you have entered the date, location, time and timezone correctly, these free astrology reports are accurate. The 'rising sign' changes roughly every two hours, so the place and time of birth must be accurate to calculate an accurate rising sign. The locations in the database and their associated timezones should be correct. However, further adjustments are made for Daylight Savings Time at certain locations, and it is worth checking that the timezone set in the form for your location is correct for your date of birth. I store the central coordinates for locations, as given by my sources.

I have a lot of aspects in my chart and I often get contradictory interpretations within the same computerized reading, so it is hard for me to see the overview.

Unfortunately, along with the rise of natal astrology (more or less a 20th century invention) came the assumption that the astrologer (or in this case, the computer) should be able to construct a little essay proclaiming 'what this person is like', without considering that to attempt such a thing is to attempt The Most Difficult Prediction of all, namely, how this or that person has so far expressed the various and contradictory elements at work in his or her psyche. What you usually end up with is a very gray average picture of the human being. The 'average' is a mythical entity. There is always more going on than we consciously realise. Individually, human beings are bundles of contradictions. Some charts are glorious, and some are real monstrosities. An 'astrology of imperatives' (the idea that one has a cosmic purpose to fulfill as depicted in the birth chart) acknowledges this and encourages us to take our cosmic remit to the highest levels expression, rather than settling for the 'average' expression, whatever that is. Each planet is a different 'organ of the psyche'. The heart does not perform the same function as the liver. Another feature of these computer generated reports is the inclusion of so-called 'minor aspects' (semi-square, ses-square, etc.), which were invented by Kepler in the 17th century and do not form part of traditional astrology, but have been included here because users expect them. You can ignore these if you wish.
