Astrological Forecast for April 2008

by Mark Dodich


The keyword is ‘Gung Ho!’ for April as fast planets move through quick signs. It’s time to throw off any sluggish residue from winter and kick it into high gear. April Fool’s Day is under the lunar influence of expect-the-unexpected Aquarius, so don’t believe everything you hear.

Tuesday the 2nd is the most complicated day early in the month. Pluto, the great transformer, begins its five-month retrograde cycle. You must simultaneously plant seeds to create new structures in your life while also placing the finishing touches on a philosophical transformation that has been going on since 1995.

Quick Mercury adds volatility to the mix as it enters impulsive Aries for the next three weeks. Communicate ideas that have been simmering below the surface and are ready for fresh air.

Avoid impulsive words leading up to the New Moon on the 5th. This courageous Aries new moon is aligned with the Orion constellation stars of Bellatrix and Betelgeuse. This combination helps you succeed with new projects or activities in the weeks ahead if you are willing to face your shadow side.

Sunday the 6th falls under the quiet influence of the void-of-course moon. This introspective phase supports a gentle ‘do-your-laundry while taking a nap’ type of day. Relaxed energy now helps you move into a highly active workweek that includes a crazy-busy Thursday the 10th. Maintain your flexibility this week because life is going to shift under your feet.

Settle into the weekend with a nurturing meal with intimate family and friends on Friday the 11th. A Cancer moon leading into the weekend supports close to home activities.

A geographic pattern, called a Grand Earth Trine is forming in the sky throughout the middle of April. During the week of the 13th, there is a hurry-up anticipation to take advantage of this harmonizing trinity. Receive the help that is offered by releasing, restructuring, and then initiating a new method to achieve your goals. Conversation is abundant this week. People have good intentions under this passionate energy, but don’t believe everything you hear now.

Enjoy romance and sensual pleasures on the weekend of the 18th. The moon is in social Libra, supporting heart-centered sharing. Friday is better for casual and friendly conversations, with the 19th better for warm & fuzzy expressions.

The Scorpio-Taurus Full Moon arrives early in the morning of Sunday the 20th. Sacred Sabian Symbols for the next two weeks are ‘a crowded sightseeing bus on a city street’ and ‘a clear mountain stream.’ Meditate on these symbols for personal meaning. You benefit by balancing and blending your worldly needs with the healing benefits that come by sneaking off into nature.

Monday the 21st, and Earth Day on the 22nd, help you to establish harmony between your stability and freedom needs. There is ample opportunity to bring innovative ideals into manifest reality in the mundane world. Assert your needs early in the week before minor relationship challenges arise on the 23rd and 24th.

‘Pragmatic romance’ is the key phrase for the weekend of the 25th. Loving Venus brings romance while a Capricorn moon wants to accomplish home tasks. Mix social and business this weekend.

The tone of the month has been talkative and quick-paced, and the final days of April are no exception. Explore new options early in the week of the 27th. Get up early on Monday morning and rebel against your routines. Take a different route to work, stop at a new breakfast restaurant, or take off on a spontaneous day trip.

As the month ends, Venus moves into Taurus for the next three weeks. Materially-focused people need to go make money and tend to their possessions. Artistic people can produce new works of beauty now. You will feel better if you accomplish something that you can point to and say “I did that!”

The next Mercury retrograde is coming up in May, combining the planet of travel in the sign of scheduling snafus. Check back for details.
