Today’s Astro Highlight for Capricorn from Cafe Astrology
April 20, 2018
The Sun is now transiting the sector of your solar chart that rules your individuality and creative expression, dear Capricorn, and will continue here until May 20th. This is a show-and-tell house, and it’s a time for expressing your talents, abilities, and affections more heartfully. A stronger urge is with you to create, put skills to use, show others what you can do, experience and enjoy romance, and partake of many of life’s pleasures. You are less cautious with your heart, and more spontaneous in your actions during this pleasing cycle. In the first half of today, however, there can be some deflation or a desire to escape. Avoid trying to find definitive answers to problems and instead offer others (and yourself) kind words. While there can be a strong temptation to fudge your way out of facing situations that you’d prefer to avoid, it’s unlikely to benefit you in the long run. Try to take some time off today for yourself to be alone with your thoughts and ideas, as they can serve you exceptionally well right now.

Today's Capricorn Horoscope by Patrick Arundell
(Capricorn 22 December - 20 January)
Friday 20th April
Leisure activities may be more to the fore as the Sun moves into Taurus for a four week stay. This dynamic sector is also linked with self-expression and can be the perfect time to let others know about any hidden talents. If you have a skill you have been perfecting, then putting your work on display in shops, craft markets or on-line, can be a way to take this further, if you desire.

The Astrology of Today – All Signs
- Friday, APRIL 20 The Moon continues its transit of Gemini until 10:27 AM EDT, after which the Moon moves through the sign of Cancer, stimulating our needs for a sense of belonging and safety. All that is familiar is a strong draw with this transit. We can experience lowered willpower or a temporary loss of focus and commitment in the first half of the day as the Sun and Neptune form a semi-square. This aspect serves as a small reminder to consider our need for downtime, fantasy, or spirituality. It's better not to push for answers at this time. The Moon squares Mercury tonight and moves towards opposition to Saturn, and we can feel some frustration with little things that go wrong or with expressing ourselves as the Mercury-Saturn square rebuilds towards exact.
- The Moon is void from 8:06 AM EDT, with the Moon's last aspect before changing signs (a sextile to Uranus), until the Moon enters Cancer at 10:27 AM EDT.
- Creativity: Fair ~ Love: Good ~ Business: Fair

This Month: Capricorn
April 2018 Capricorn Monthly Horoscope: A Full Moon at the end of March has lit up a new path for you, dear Capricorn, and you begin April more aware of the need to make changes in your personal life, with family, or in your domestic affairs. Even so, there is a big theme of career, reputation, and responsibilities this month, and you'll continue to sort out your goals and follow your ambitions in April. Indeed, your many personal goals can compete with professional ones, but you stand to gain some momentum after first establishing your priorities and pacing yourself just right. Venus is in a lovely position vis a vis your sign until the 24th, and friends and lovers, or potential ones, see you in a most favorable light. While other areas of life can be weighty at times, you seem to find the time to enjoy leisurely activities and relationships this month.
Mars in your sign all month can pump you up, but from the 2-26, Mars is in between Saturn and Pluto, and you'll need to adjust your approach to make the most of this tricky configuration. On the 2-4, you could have a hard time adjusting, but refinements you make now can make life more satisfying and straightforward later. There can be reminders to take better care of yourself, follow the rules, be thorough, and take matters step by step so that you get things right. Be conservative but keep moving forward, slowly but surely, for best results. Disconnects with others or irritating delays can be part of the picture, particularly related to home or family life, but they also have a way of pointing out new ways to do things that you may not have seen otherwise.
Mercury is retrograde in your home and family sector until the 15th, after which delays or blocks lift, or the information you need to move forward comes through. This is the same day that the New Moon occurs in the same sector of your solar chart, pointing to new beginnings and fresh energy for making improvements. Until then, progress can be made, but it's slow going and brand new beginnings should probably wait.
One particularly useful window in the first half of April is the 10-14. This is a strong time for creative, romantic, and entertaining pursuits. Others are drawn to you, particularly for your frankness or independence. Relationships might strengthen in subtle ways now, and you're giving off exceptionally warm or exciting vibes. You could receive attention that helps boost your confidence. More importantly, you're proud of your accomplishments. You can feel on fire with passion and creative energy, and you could be excited about prospects, ideas, and projects. Do pace yourself, though. Pushing ahead too quickly is not advised for much of April. This can also be a nice period for moments to release some pressure or combat stress. Your romantic imagination is stimulated now, which can be expressed or applied through relationships or artistic creativity. A generous, open approach leads to rewards. Even so, a bit of mystery is helpful in your work. You're coming on quite strongly these days, with more energy at your disposal and more directness in your requests, but at this point of the month, you benefit from a little more subtlety.
All month, you're in a good position for creative and romantic pursuits, but you're also in wonderful shape for friendships, group associations, banding together with others, and learning, transforming, and growing through the process. Helping others helps you! This can be a time for forming significant, long-term, and positive friendships, alliances or associations. While Venus will move out of your creative sector on the 24th, the Sun moves into it on the 20th, and this is a terrific month for recognizing your need to play, enjoy yourself, have some fun, and share your affection or creations with others. It's a time to shine!
On the 22-23, your social life gets a nice boost. Both cooperative and competitive efforts can thrive now. Sharing activities with others can lead to something special and enterprising, or you may be gathering up a team or group or drawing upon the resources of an associate in order to move a project forward.
Venus is the first to move into your work and health sector, and these themes will come into stronger focus in May. For now, you're gearing up for more enjoyment with work or the pursuit of your daily goals. Work opportunities emerge, or you find ways to enjoy your current work more fully.
While it has been building through much of April, Mars finally meets Pluto in your sign on the 26th, after which it may feel a little freer, and so will you! You might feel especially motivated to reach a personal goal now, but you could also feel quite pressured. People may be looking to you to take the lead, and you might choose to embrace this and take charge. The power to shape your image is strong. The Full Moon on the 29th calls further attention to your social need or particular feelings for a friend or project, as well as the need for more attention to enjoying your life and finding your happiness. It's a particularly good time for celebratory activities or the recognition of your attachments and allegiances.
This Year: Capricorn
2018 Yearly Horoscope Overview
2018 is a significant year for you, dear Capricorn, as Saturn, your ruler, has returned to your sign and feels right at home there! This transit does point to increased responsibilities that may feel burdensome at times, but it’s also a fabulous period for getting your life in order, which is sure to please you. Of all signs, you’re inclined to understand the value of preparing for the future, so that if you need to give up something now to achieve a longer-term goal, you’re bound to have the maturity and patience to do so. This is what is asked of you now, and this theme is with you until 2020.
Saturn performs very well in your sign, and this can point to various improvements in your mannerisms, personality, appearance, and personal reputation. The more insular side of this transit is likely to become most apparent from November forward when Jupiter moves into your privacy sector for a year, and you find more solace, joy, and comfort in your private life or relative solitude. However, until November, Jupiter is moving through your friends and hopes sector, enlivening your social life and keeping you connected.
So, while Saturn tends to add personal responsibilities to your plate in 2018, the year offers some real joy in your relationships and projects. You’re often found going solo, but you’re still reaching out to others, and people tend to be supportive. You continue to focus on going after your fondest hopes and wishes while also attending to your material affairs.
2018 is powerful for establishing rewarding friendships and group associations. Those of you in business for yourself could enjoy an unusually profitable year.
Do your best to avoid going overboard with self-criticism. It is appropriate now to work on improvements, but it’s important not to waste time on regret. Pressures and responsibilities notwithstanding, there can be exciting social developments this year, and there can be opportunities to share your expertise with associates that shouldn’t be overlooked.
You’re seeing opportunities everywhere this year, and it’s exciting. Saturn in your sign will help you tame the urge to take on too many things–beyond your means or energy levels.
A new theme entering your life this year takes away some of the pressure or unsettled quality surrounding home and family. Your romantic and creative worlds are heating up, but this influence will develop more fully in 2019. Challenges and rewards in close partnerships are also on their way, and you’ll see hints of this theme in 2018.
From June 26-August 27 particularly, it’s important to review your money situation rather than push new financial initiatives ahead.
You have a more acute sense of your responsibilities, duties, and obligations in 2018, and you’re becoming a lot more focused and deliberate in your approach to your life. New beginnings at this time are notable and significant for you in the long run, even if you do not quite see where you’re headed with these things, whether they’re hobbies, personal interests, or studies.
You come into closer touch with your spiritual and emotional renewal needs from November forward. This can be a time when, more often than not, you may very well enjoy your own company!
This Year in Love: Capricorn
2018 Love Horoscope for Capricorn
Jupiter moving through your social sector until November this year puts the emphasis on friendship in 2018, dear Capricorn. It also means that Jupiter is transiting in harmony with your sign, which helps you minimize daily stresses and concentrate on your happier goals. It also boosts your faith.
Another new theme for you this year is a significant one: Saturn has recently entered your sign, and you’re bound to be taking yourself and your life a little more seriously. While this is an important time for bringing more order to your life, there can be times, of course, when the people you love (and the people you want to love) may feel a little alienated, left out, or downright intimidated! Making a conscious effort to let others in can help people understand you better. Try not to communicate your stress or negativity if that’s going to be others’ first impressions.
Watch for sending out vibes that may be pushing others away. It’s true that you may not be as trusting of new things, and new people, but it may be wise to avoid pushing people away before they have any chance to prove themselves. This is more likely after the first week of November when Jupiter retreats into your privacy sector. With Saturn in the foreground and Jupiter in the background in the last two months of 2018, you can be quite self-protective and withdrawn, which may limit your love life.
Saturn in your sign can also serve to enhance your responsible side and this can be a major draw for some people in your life, however. There are times during this 2-3 year transit when you feel very much …more
