This Month’s Highlights
Horoscopes for the Month
Void of Course Dates this Month
On April 1st, the New Moon occurs in the sign of Aries, prompting us to start fresh. This lunation brings a “fresh start” to our lives and challenges us to show a pure part of ourselves to the world. By acting upon our own inner impulses (constructive ones!) without fear, and by abandoning the need to refine these impulses based on what others might want us to do or what others think we “should” do, we discover more about ourselves. In turn, as we learn to depend on ourselves, we exude an all-new aura of strength that comes from personal integrity and confidence, as well as a pure and fresh charm.
This New Moon brings on a period of new beginnings and initiative. It aligns with Mercury and occurs when all major planets are direct, suggesting a courageous mindset and few obstacles. However, Mars, the ruler of Aries is applying to a conjunction to Saturn, and while we’re ready to work hard and pace ourselves, we can be combatting some fear of not being number one.
Jupiter aligns with Neptune on April 12th, and idealistic and humanitarian goals or impulses surface. This is a one-off transit (it doesn’t repeat two more times as many outer-planet transits do). A spirit of altruism and generosity, making connections with others from a different background, widening our minds through unusual or different experiences, expanded faith, and a feeling that anything is possible if we believe in it are all themes. Practical considerations could take a back seat now. We more easily make personal sacrifices for what we believe to be the better good.
Everyday, ordinary life doesn’t satisfy, as we hunger for a more idealistic life. This can certainly lead to disappointment or strong feelings of discontent and restlessness. In fact, we may need a reality check in order to keep our expectations realistic. Caution should be exercised with legal matters, finances, and other worldly, practical affairs, as the tendency to ignore critical details or to take foolish risks runs high. However, if expectations are kept in check, this can be a fabulous time for dreaming up new possibilities. It’s also a period of greater compassion–when our guiding principle is to trust in people or the universe. Read more about this Jupiter-conjunct-Neptune aspect.
On April 16th, a Full Moon occurs in the sign of Libra. This lunation brings sudden awareness to our lives, particularly of the need to improve and enhance our relationships. Something is exposed or illuminated, prompting us to get in touch with those things/feelings that we may have been neglecting or putting off. Relationship imbalances and flaws are more noticeable and perhaps even glaring now. We can feel quite inspired to make improvements, coming up with excellent strategies for doing so now.
This Full Moon awakens us to our feelings, particularly about relationships and social exchanges. While it’s an emotional time and the focus is on our affections, we recognize the practical side of getting along or find practical ways to improve our relationships. Relationship epiphanies occur now–we’re likely to experience revelations about our independence, need for others, and partnerships.
Saturn harmonizes with the Sun and Moon, while Pluto forms a square to the lights at the time of this Full Moon. There can be helpful interactions with superiors or with older or more experienced people, and benefits can come as a result. There can be a choice to structure, limit, or simplify our lives in a significant way that leads to major improvements. We’re a little more careful and conservative now, but we can also feel a lot of pressure related to our ambitions or desire for more control over our lives. However, all planets are direct at this time, helping us to feel less burdened or held back.
On April 29th, Pluto turns retrograde, and Pluto’s intense and complex energy hangs heavy in the air in the days surrounding this event. Now and over the coming months (Pluto is retrograde until October 8th), we may be reassessing how we use our power. We are not as open, overt, or direct about our desire for control or power, and some of us may be less in touch with it.
A Solar Eclipse occurs in the sign of Taurus on April 30th, and it’s the second in a Taurus-Scorpio set that began in November 2021 with a Lunar Eclipse in Taurus. It’s the first Solar Eclipse in Taurus in this set. The Solar Eclipse occurs when Venus is tightly (partile) conjunct Jupiter in Pisces. Since Venus is the ruler of this eclipse, it’s particularly significant. This eclipse aligns with Uranus and harmonizes with Mars, and we can get off to a great start mentally as we embark on new beginnings. Its effects can be felt for up to six months after the actual date of the eclipse.
In the sign of Taurus, matters related to personal finances, values, ownership, physical and material resources, personal possessions, feelings of worthiness, desire for safety and security, resistance to change, comfort, sensuality, and familiarity will be a strong focus on a personal level. Long-term changes in these areas are in the works. It’s a time for strengthening our sense of security and re-evaluating our relationship with money and possessions. We’re discovering what it is that truly makes us happy and fulfilled. It‘s also a period for considering new ways of increasing our income or earning power. New and potent energy is with us for taking charge of our personal possessions and finances.
Taurus New Moons are generally good for getting back in touch with simple and physical pleasures–savoring good food, and enjoying activities that bring us in touch with nature and with our bodies. It’s time to “stop and smell the roses”, and to become more aware of what makes us feel comfortable and secure. We are challenged to be more sensible and possibly conservative in our approach but, at the same time, open to making fundamental changes. We are also challenged to follow through on projects or situations that we may have abandoned or considered dropping if we deem them to be appropriate and worthwhile. We may be dealing with a certain level of stubbornness, both in others and in ourselves. However, it’s an excellent time for connecting with our bodies and with nature through earthy activities, as well as appreciating what we already have.

This Month’s Overview Horoscopes
The following horoscopes outline how the above astrological influences might affect each individual sign.
Overview horoscopes fill in here as I write them, ideally during the week before the month begins. It is not unusual to see some signs temporarily missing as I write the twelve of them over the course of a few days, starting with the featured sign of the month (birthday month).
April 2022 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Aries:
While you're sure to get attention this month, dear Aries, there is some sense of holding back as the month advances. The month begins with a New Moon in your sign, symbolizing a fresh start and new beginnings. Still, Venus enters your soul sector on the 5th, and Mars, your planetary ruler, does the same on the 14th. You might need some sort of a sabbatical with major decisions, in general, and perhaps relationships. Creative pursuits can thrive if you're doing something behind the scenes or on the last stretch of a particular project. Money matters are increasingly making headlines.
The New Moon in your sign on the 1st puts personal power in your hands, and it occurs around the time of a healing, problem-solving Sun-Mercury-Chiron connection. It stirs a whole new orientation, a blast of personal energy, and a sense that you're revving up. It's also a beautiful time for self-honesty.
You're inclined to connect with what you truly want from your life and where improvements can be made, particularly how you approach the world, take the lead, and present yourself. Your natural talents, the areas where you shine, and your savvy are readily discoverable and perhaps on display. Mercury is in Aries until the 10th, and you want to be heard and share your thoughts.
You're considerably more engaged and ready to make things happen. Others notice and hear you loud and clear as you begin the month. It's a time for really shining and feeling more in control of your life personally. Aim to start your solar year with confidence and mindfulness. In the week following the New Moon, you may decide to begin key projects.
Even so, while you begin the month quite active with friends and groups, two key planets, Venus and Mars, move out of your social sector and into your hidden sector on the 5th and 14th. There's some need to pull back from overly demanding and competitive situations, and perhaps people. Your perceptions heighten, and you're learning important things about your inner world, most profound needs, and loved ones. You could be contemplating and perhaps hesitating with affections and feelings. It's healthy and natural as Venus closes out a cycle, and you prepare for a new one in early May, when Venus enters your sign. In the meantime, undercover feelings could be in focus, or there's a tendency to look behind you before starting anew.
Jupiter is in your privacy sector, too, reinforcing the personal, private, and inward focus that often dominates the month's energies. While you could be wrestling with some decisions, you can, in fact, be a real dynamo with a bit of extra solitude and time to yourself.
If you've been overdoing special interests or your social life, a Mars-Saturn alignment on the 4th can remind you to slow down. Considering your limits is wise. A Jupiter-Neptune alignment on the 12th colors the month with quite a bit of imagination, however. There can be an increasing feeling of spiritual protection, spirituality, heightened intuition, and understanding. Your dreaming world is active, and your faith in the unknown strengthens. Rewards for past good deeds or projects can emerge, or events expand your innate compassion, warmth, or inner eye. There can be hidden or elusive elements to your communications, interests, and studies.
Pay special attention to what others reveal around the 16th when a Full Moon occurs in your partnership sector.
The Sun and Mercury move into your sector of resources, natural talents, and self-worth on the 19th and 10th, respectively. These shifts stir a desire to build up your resources, improve your bottom line, and develop what you already have.
Pluto turns retrograde on the 29th, and you may be learning of areas where you've been over-attached, worried, obsessed, or a bit paranoid. The coming months are excellent for reworking career and planning initiatives, doing the research and legwork, and refining projects. It can initially magnify work and reputation problems, but going forward, some of the pressure you've been feeling to perform is moved to the backseat. This is likely to feel good for those who've been a little bogged down recently.
A Solar Eclipse occurs on the 30th in your solar second house, prompting new directions with money and things. You could bring your recent ideas and endeavors to life and build or develop these projects. You're moving towards a more patient and moderate approach to life that truly works for you.
You might free yourself from a burden or unhealthy attachment, or there can be forgiveness and understanding that help you move on and embrace your future. With Jupiter soon entering your sign, now is the time to clear the path for new beginnings.
April 2022 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Taurus:
April gets off to a motivating start with your career or life-path goals in solid focus and perhaps some extra attention on professional levels, dear Taurus. Nevertheless, the Sun and Mercury are transiting a hidden area of your chart until the 19th and 10th, respectively, pointing to the need for personal downtime as you wind down your solar year. You may be a little more private or insular than usual.
It’s a natural time of year for some retreat, withdrawal, or a sabbatical — emotional and physical renewal before your birthday month. This could be symbolic only but important as you recharge and refresh. Some things may be up in the air now, and these things need additional time to mature. It’s not the time to rush.
If you need to handle a private matter or deal with an ending or a problem from the past, the week following the New Moon on the 1st is powerful. Responsibilities are strong on you around the 4th, but ease off as the month progresses. You could be in the position to take the lead or make a decision, and it weighs on you as Mars and Saturn head into a meeting on the 4th.
While insular on a personal level, your reputation, career, professional developments, and responsibilities continue to grab your attention as you begin the month. Still, things are shifting as the month progresses, and Venus and Mars head into your social sector on the 5th and 14th. These transits are remarkable for added charisma with friends and groups. Jupiter's already in this sector, and it aligns with magical Neptune on the 12th. Venus-Mars-Jupiter keeps you engaged, creative, popular, and curious.
All in all, it's shaping up to be a powerful time for your social life, networking, and communicating as April progresses. You could build a following for your ideas or work. You're making connections and sharing your ideas, and you enjoy experimenting and entertaining new ideas. Fortunately, you're more confident in what you have to offer others and the community, and you have faith in your happiness goals and dreams. You may be taking the lead in a group, or people may be looking to you for guidance. New people coming into your life could inspire you to make important changes and improvements. Love requires more emotional space, acceptance, and tolerance. Then again, it's possible you find love through group associations, networking, and friends.
With Jupiter and Neptune coming together this month, friendships can feel magical or confusing! Certainly, your dreams and ideals play a considerable role in your social life. More faith in the universe is possible through your connections.
Look for ways to improve physical and mental health through activities and mind-body healing techniques when the Full Moon on the 16th reminds you to attend to your overall well-being. It's also a time when you recognize the need to better manage your daily affairs.
Mercury moves into your sign on the 10th, and you find your voice. The Sun moves into Taurus on the 19th, boosting your sense of personal power and increasing your influence and presence. These transits also bring out the need to share your ideas and use the power of words to improve your life. Use this extra boost of visibility to further your plans. It's a fine time to consider new personal initiatives, make changes to your presentation or appearance, and update your year-ahead resolutions.
Pluto turns retrograde on the 29th, and you're more aware of evolving relationship needs. Strong feelings about partnership or a specific person can emerge. Still, you may need to back off a situation just a little so that you can gain perspective and see where you’ve been too attached, controlling, or tense. You may be reassessing, observing, and gaining a new vision of a close relationship, publishing project, educational path, or belief system in the months ahead.
The 30th brings a Solar Eclipse in your sign, acting as a powerful slate cleaner. Something new begins, and it can feel much like a new chapter in your life story. You are ready to kick bad habits, start fresh, and present a more self-assured “you” to the world. However, this can emerge from a feeling that you’re very much not in control or in charge, so there can be some discomfort involved. The eclipse receives nice support, suggesting that efforts put forth now lead to successful, rewarding changes. Before this date, focus on review, meditation, and activities that help you purge or process and release negative energy.
Going forward, you’re likely to find yourself at a turning point or experiencing a significant shift. This eclipse is part of a series that began last November and ends in October 2023. You’re in the midst of this robust process in which you’re reinventing yourself in a meaningful way, getting in touch with your personal power and independence. You’re changing how you approach the world, and as you do, you’ll find that you attract different experiences and people into your life. This can be a time of social refreshment and detox from pressured situations and goals. You're feeding your soul and reminding yourself that happiness counts!
April 2022 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Gemini:
You continue to look for ways to improve your life experiences and increase your knowledge and wisdom this month, dear Gemini. Expanding your mind and exploring extracurricular activities can be rewarding. Sharing ideas and focusing on your happiness goals can figure strongly. It's a time for feeling freer and happier as your knowledge of the world around you grows.
When Venus and Mars move into your professional sector on the 5th and 14th, respectively, you continue to enjoy networking and learning. However, you are also in the position to bring more creativity, energy, and charisma to your career or public life. The 11-13 is especially powerful for personal and professional influence--you have the chance to shine. You can be both warm and assertive, helping you get ahead.
With the Sun in your solar eleventh house until the 19th, it's a great time for networking, group efforts, reaching out to the community, and friendships. Long-term plans look exciting now. The New Moon on the 1st brings wonderful energy for making connections and solving problems. Emerging opportunities have the potential for longevity and meaningfulness. In the week following this New Moon, you might decide to begin a new venture or join a group or team.
Even though career, responsibilities, and life plan goals come into focus as the month advances, they do have a social element to them. Very creative dynamic energy is with you, particularly from mid-month, for manifesting your goals. It's a time for getting noticed for your performance. You might connect with people who can further your career or personal interests. Through others' faith in you or wisdom, you are encouraged to reach your potential. Your intuition, compassion, or creativity can play a decisive role in your career. Support or connections can seem to appear suddenly or out of nowhere.
The Full Moon on the 16th can bring affections and creativity to full bloom. The route to fulfillment may not be immediately apparent, but the first step is acknowledging what you want.
You begin to need more time to yourself with Mercury and the Sun moving into your privacy sector on the 10th and 19th. There is a natural inclination to withdraw and rest more. Taking the time to relax, refresh, and get in touch with your inner world can be in order. You might see old problems or projects in a new light. Life is a little quieter as you find more time to slip into the background to enjoy private moments and times for rest and reflection. New opportunities can emerge that turn your attention behind the scenes.
Pluto turns retrograde on the 29th, and if the give-and-take or trust in a key relationship has fallen out of balance, you'll feel it more intensely now. Health and work matters, primarily related to control or fear issues, can also come into sharper focus with this shift. Over the coming five-plus months of this retrograde, you'll benefit from reviewing or reassessing current wellness programs, routines, work projects, power dynamics, intimate relationships, shared assets, or debt.
A Solar Eclipse occurs on the last day of the month, reinforcing a need to look within. Current eclipses pull up important themes revolving around whether you're attending to a healthy work-rest balance. Hunches are powerful and hard to ignore. You're not exactly putting everything on hold, but there's a call to take more time for yourself to recharge.
In the weeks ahead of this eclipse, you'll have the motivation and energy boost needed to deal with the past or private matters, let go of things you no longer need, and attend to your mental and emotional wellness. It's a great time to clear the decks. You can be more confident in your path or happier about where you're heading.
April 2022 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Cancer:
Life is picking up speed for you this month, dear Cancer, in a most enjoyable way. You seem to be balancing work and play well right now, with opportunities emerging on both personal and professional levels.
With the Sun and Mercury at the top of your solar chart to the 19th and 10th, you're in a great position to look after the major structures in your life. It's a time to give extra attention to career, long-term goals, rules, responsibilities, and performance. It can also be a time of greater visibility and for reminding yourself of long-term plans and the rules of the road.
The New Moon on the 1st can boost career efforts and your reputation. There can be a sense that you can start fresh. Transits are good for revitalizing your intimate life and getting a better sense of what you can count on in terms of monetary and emotional support. It can also be a rich time for better understanding yourself or an intimate partner. Combining your resources or talents with someone can be beneficial for reaching a goal.
Venus and Mars move into your spirit sector and harmonize with your sign from the 5th and 14th. Jupiter is already here, blessing this area of your solar chart. These influences can boost your spirits and bring more spontaneity into your love life, communications, and everyday experiences. Promotional or marketing efforts can prosper.
As the month advances, you may get the chance to apply your knowledge and skillset in practical ways, or your ideas reach a larger audience and gain recognition. Publishing, learning, and teaching come into stronger focus. You might enjoy an exciting new project or a revival of one already in progress. Personal magnetism is strong and increasing. You'll find that moving outside of your normal bounds and routines improves your opportunities. There can be a great hunger for new experiences and knowledge that feed your mind and spirit. With Venus, Mars, and Jupiter moving in harmony with your sign, you're likely to easily bounce back from minor problems.
Jupiter and Neptune meet this month, producing magical energy for finding a special line of study or personal interest. Increased faith or enriching cultural activities can figure strongly, and you especially love any art that elevates the human spirit. It's a strong time for hooking into a cherished dream or plan and feeling more hopeful as a result.
The Full Moon on the 16th can be a time for recognizing a stronger need for family and the comforts of familiarity and the home.
Mercury and the Sun move into your friendship sector on the 10th and 19th, turning your attention to enjoyment, friends, teamwork, and networking. You're entertaining long-term happiness goals now.
With Pluto turning retrograde on the 29th for over five months, you're likely to identify areas where you've been pushing too hard or where you've been too attached for your own good.
A Solar Eclipse occurs on the last day of April, and changes are in the works for your social life, hopes, dreams, or community involvement. This trend first emerged in November and will continue to develop until this year and the next. If you've been pursuing a project independently, you might now recognize the need to delegate tasks, collaborate, or start something brand new. With eclipses, sometimes we have to let go of something–and often, this is simply an idea or preconception–before we fully embrace moving on. A fresh start is possible when it comes to a friendship or group connection. In the period ahead, the people and causes with which you align yourself may evolve.
It can also be a time of romantic possibilities with someone offering you an entirely different perspective on life. Stirrings of restlessness can motivate you to improve your life, such as through a new course or adventure of sorts. A fun and healthy escape may be in the offing and can be a real refresher.
April 2022 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Leo:
The month begins spiritedly, dear Leo, and learning, sharing ideas, and relating are in strong focus. You're more experimental, spontaneous, and adventurous than usual at this time of the year. Benefits come from learning pursuits, transportation, and general spirit or attitude towards life. While you can be especially excited by your special interests in the first part of April, you become more concerned with goals and responsibilities as the month progresses, making it best not to take on more than you can handle.
Close relationships and partnerships continue to be an area of focus this month--transits are likely to reveal some strong needs and desires in the area of partnering. There is excitement stimulated through your relationship with others.
A New Moon occurs at the beginning of April, pushing your need for refreshment. Opportunities to break the routine, learn, publish, promote, or share can emerge. Something that connects you with a new, different, or broader audience or with other ideas and cultures can be in focus now, and it's gratifying. A change of scene or mental refreshment can be beneficial now.
You're exploring and discovering more frequently this month, but Venus and Mars head into your intimacy sector on the 5th and 14th, respectively, where Jupiter and Neptune meet. For people in love relationships or looking for love, this month and the next are vital for getting closer. Connections can deepen. While you're seeking out a little more adventure from your life this month, your private world holds a lot of appeal. In fact, there can be times when you're utterly absorbed in quiet activities, research, and projects. Your feelings run deep, and your intimate world is richer and more profound. Private time is special as April progresses. You feel more supported and more genuinely confident now. This can be a great period for intimacy, pouring extra energy into passion projects, or taking action on a private matter.
Under these transits, any new relationships in your life may deepen. Indeed, your feelings and desires transform, deepen, and grow more complex or layered. It can be a time for consolidating or combining your resources, gaining financial support, or bringing a little more excitement to your intimate life. It’s a time for sharing responsibilities and combining resources or talents to advance your goals. Money or support may come through, or financial dealings can be successful. Do keep an eye on your shared resources as you explore boundaries.
Around the Full Moon on the 16th, you can be especially busy and enjoy good news or contact with a special friend. It's a generally busy time, but do find some space for relaxation.
You experience more motivation to realize your business goals with Mercury's move to the top of your solar chart on the 10th and the Sun from the 19th. These transits are shifting your attention to the rules and structures in your life.
Pluto turns retrograde on the 29th, putting you in the position to review and reassess work and health matters in the coming months. You might more clearly see where you've been over-attached or where you've been putting too much pressure on yourself. You may decide to delegate or let go of some initiatives so that you can catch your breath and find more time to explore, expand, and flourish.
A Solar Eclipse occurs on the 30th, and there can be new responsibilities, recognition, or a new position or project in the weeks following. You might come into the limelight in some manner now, or you'll find others are noticing you for your performance and actions. There can be the need to follow the rules or straighten out an area of your life.
Changes in goals, plans, and priorities could be on the horizon. This eclipse set challenges you to pay more attention to balancing your inner and outer worlds. It started in November and will stick with you this year and the next. Right now, the thrust is for better managing your responsibilities to the outside world.
April 2022 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Virgo:
You continue to focus on work, health, and relationships as April begins, dear Virgo. You're pulling back a little, strategizing, observing, and researching your options.
The New Moon on the first day of the month prompts you to organize your financial affairs, seek support, or start a new plan for emotional health and wellness. You can be excited to study a topic in more depth or find solutions to long-standing problems. Finances deserve special attention, mainly shared money and property or loans and support payments. This can be a time of a refund, bonus, or loan coming through for some.
If you've been pushing too hard towards a work or fitness goal, there could be a roadblock or slowdown in the first few days of April that reminds you that long-term success requires pacing yourself. You could be working particularly hard at improving your health or working conditions. Look for ways to simplify so that you can move forward in the best possible direction.
As April advances, your focus begins shifting to your social life, partnering, connecting, and exploring new adventures or experiences and ideas. Pulling yourself away from work and tasks can be of great benefit now. Relationships enliven.
Venus and Mars head into your partnership sector on the 5th and 14th, animating your relationships and highlighting your needs from others. Jupiter and Neptune are already in this area of your solar chart, and these bodies come together in a magnificent alignment. As such, there's some special magic with you for one-to-one connections. Negotiations are well-favored. Exciting or enticing people could be part of the picture now. For those in a partnership, a relationship is lively, perhaps a little demanding, and a valuable learning process.
Relationships, in general, can advance to a new level. Your sense of security is strongly reinforced by close partnerships this month. A partner might rely on you for emotional support, existing partnerships may be especially nurturing, quiet, and moving, or you tend to buddy up with a family member.
Be open to new ideas and stimulation, but experiment wisely and creatively. Be sure to get a word in edgewise, even if it's a necessary time to consider the input of others. A partner or special friend can inspire or motivate you to pursue a dream or work up to your potential. It's a time when you may not only seek some feedback or one-on-one, but you're also likely to benefit significantly from it.
As April advances, expressing love, pleasure, warmth, and affection comes more naturally than usual, and you're likely to find others especially enjoy your company. Cooperating or merging with others can be in focus.
With Mercury on the 10th and the Sun on the 19th moving into your solar ninth house, it's about the broader vision emerging and a pleasant feeling of confidence to explore and discover taking over. Opportunities to break out of your regular routine abound and inspire. An outward focus and more outgoing feelings figure strongly. You're likely to find the spirit and motivation to enjoy extracurricular activities.
Pluto turns retrograde on the 29th, and in the months ahead, you'll be gaining a new perspective on learning, connecting, romance, creativity, recreation, communications, and transportation. Ultimately, you'll see where fear and over-attachment may have been working against you in these areas. This retrograde period is powerful for gaining self-knowledge.
The Solar Eclipse on the last day of April reinforces and energizes your need to branch out, make a mark on the world, and communicate. The thing to watch at this time, however, is prematurity. It's better to observe and intuit in the days following an eclipse and avoid rushing ahead. You're likely to enjoy new ideas and experiences as your perspective on your life is evolving. Expanding your reach or audience or exploring different topics can figure strongly in the months ahead.
April 2022 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Libra:
The month ahead is pivotal for your relationships, dear Libra, and for exploring your needs and wants. As April advances, creative ways to spiff up your daily routines can figure strongly. Your motivation to do something meaningful with your time is strong in April.
There's a New Moon at the beginning of April, and it can point to a new beginning related to a partnership. New insights arrive, particularly with a Sun-Mercury alignment at the same time. You see relationships from a new angle. There can be counseling, advice, negotiations, and business agreements.
Venus and Mars move through your romance, entertainment, and creative expression sector until the 5th and 14th, respectively, framing you well. You're looking good and feeling good! Boosting your relating sensibilities further are the Sun (until the 19th) and Mercury (to the 10th) in your partnership sector. You attract strong and intelligent people into your life. You're also taking more pride in your close relationships, motivating you to make a solid effort to relate in positive, rewarding ways.
Still, you have lovely energy building for work, taking better care of yourself through improved or extra attention to your habits and routines, and getting happily on track with your practical affairs. Venus and Mars move into your solar sixth house on the 5th and 14th, boosting your daily life. Good energy for consulting, negotiating, and partnering is with you, mainly connected with your work or health goals. You could be teaming up with someone to pursue wellness programs or complete a project, for example.
Newfound or increased joy in your work can also bolster health. You are especially inventive, creative, and enterprising, particularly with your work, methods, and pet projects.
