April 2015 Astrology Forecast
The day-by-day astrology forecast for April 2015
April 1: With the waxing Virgo Moon testing Neptune early, put practical jokes and other pranks on hold until after noon. Instead, pay extra close attention to your morning rituals and preparations for the day. Make sure keys, phones, papers and other necessities are where they need to be. Attune inwardly. Morning meditations, reveries and each of the six senses may be supernaturally enriched by the alignment. Because Virgo can be one of the Zodiac's kindest signs, jesting is likely to be good-natured and the healing power of laughter as well as a job well done is made more apparent by tonight's lunar trine with resilient Pluto. There's much to be gained today through persistence, cooperation, sympathy and gentle persuasion.

April 2: The gibbous Virgo Moon slips into void of course mode well before the start of this work day. However, with the exact full Moon less than forty-eight hours away, most folks will hardly miss a beat. Two very favorable planetary alignments help keep minds sharp and spirits and hopes up. First, mental Mercury makes a morning trine to Saturn, the planet of practical necessities. After noon the Aries Sun forms a heart-stirring trine to Jupiter. The motivating mix of celestial energies helps sustain a steady and productive pace. All the same, it's best to stay cautious when it comes to major purchases and decisions. A lunar eclipse accompanies Saturday's upcoming Full Moon so many things will not go as originally planned.

April 3: The nearly full Libra Moon hooks up with Saturn in a sextile, fostering an intelligent, patient and orderly approach to today's challenges. Join forces with partners and associates to increase productivity. Get input from higher ups and other more experienced people. Relationships can improve in unexpected yet very satisfying ways. A late afternoon lunar opposition with mental Mercury may necessitate clarifying some agreements. The same aspect can also mark the start of many heart to heart conversations. Stay fully immersed in the present moment and give your companions' words your complete attention. More than one partnership is about to venture into exciting new territory.
Moon in Virgo v/c 12:00AM-3:07AM Moon enters Libra.
April 4: This morning's powerful full "pink" Moon is also a lunar eclipse. Every eclipse is an opportunity for centering, aligning the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies. The Aries Sun and Moon in Libra oppose one another and at the same time recharge the still close square between Uranus and Pluto. Today and the next few days are volatile on many levels. Physical and emotional stresses can surface suddenly, testing relationships. Political surprises, computer and mechanical failures, earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions may also impact many lives. Use extra care and caution in everything you say and do. If you are under increased stress, employ relaxation techniques. Breathe. Exercise. Roll with changes, don't fight them. New values, ways of thinking and living are emerging. These are fast-paced, evolutionary times!

April 5: Even as the dust settles from yesterday's full Moon, the Aries Sun continues to test Pluto and Uranus. No doubt some folks will employ devious tactics in trying to get their way but everyone, no matter their power or position, is dealing with at least one uncertainty. The quieter first part of the day features a void of course Libra Moon. During the mid-afternoon the Moon changes signs, entering Scorpio where she opposes Mars. Tempers may flare but tactful communicating remains the greatest tool for resolving differences. Stay calm, flexible and resolutely committed to creating win-win results.
Moon in Libra v/c 12:00AM-3:04PM Moon enters Scorpio, Sun square Pluto.
April 6: Brilliant ideas, sensational scientific inventions and enlightened moments of self-discovery punctuate the morning hours. These early hours also favor travelers and anyone with an idea to sell or story to share. However, despite all the wonderfully eye-opening possibilities, the Aries Sun is conjunct Uranus, the planet of unforeseen, uncontrollable and sometimes unwanted surprises, including accidents. Be prepared to deal with unexpected events. Drive conservatively. Avoid stepping on anyone's toes. Big ideas and controversies remain topics of discussion later in the day. Give events as well as friends a chance to catch up with your thinking. It may take longer than you expect, but minds are changing.
Moon in Scorpio, Mercury trine Jupiter, Sun conjunct Uranus.
April 7: The Scorpio Moon's opposition with Venus inclines some folks to reach out and touch other lives in heartfelt, meaningful ways. Many social interactions are in fact rich in content and deeply rewarding. Not everyone is able to feel the love though. Others find their nerves are uncomfortably on edge. Mental Mercury is square to obsessive Pluto while drawing close to rebellious Uranus. Those who live primarily in their heads can suffer from judgmental thinking and imagined slights. Don't jump to conclusions. Reality is far more malleable than most of us imagine. Do your best to keep your mind on a positive track. Visualize desired results. Practice forgiveness. If necessary, suspend judgment and just stay open to the possibility of improvement.
Moon in Scorpio v/c 4:42PM-12:00AM, Mercury square Pluto.
April 8: Dueling influences combine to create a most curious morning. Mental Mercury is conjunct highly intuitive Uranus. Minds can race off in unexpected directions and come up with ingenious ideas and plans. Pay attention to wild impulses as well as far out thoughts. On the other hand, petulant teenagers and wise cracking cynics are also in their glory. At almost the same time the Sagittarius Moon is conjunct dour Saturn, injecting a dose of serious realism. All is made better by Jupiter. The giant planet of happiness, good health, wealth and prosperity resumes forward motion shortly after noon. Competing trends continue into early evening as a lunar square to Neptune raises caution flags. Don't be too trusting or get carried away with living beyond your means. Moderation in all things leads to a happy ending tonight.
Moon in Scorpio v/c 12:00AM-1:08AM Moon enters Sagittarius, Mercury conjunct Uranus, Jupiter Direct.
April 9: The spirited Sagittarius Moon ignites a string of uplifting and endearing trine alignments with Jupiter, Uranus, Mercury and finally the Sun. From midnight until early afternoon, the day sparkles! Moods are upbeat. Hearts and minds are open. The future looks bright. Most folks feel comfortable with themselves and the world around them. If you have decisions to make, meetings to hold or shopping to do, the period before mid-afternoon is fabulous. The Moon then begins a lengthy void of course period that lasts into tomorrow morning. With Mercury drawing close to a midnight rendezvous with the Sun, objectivity could be lacking later in the day. Remember to factor other opinions and points of view into your thinking.
Moon in Sagittarius v/c 1:42PM-12:00AM.
April 10: Night owls and early birds may feel as though they are swimming against the tide but then a moment of inspired cosmic perfection occurs. The Moon slips into industrious Capricorn just as the work day begins. Clear the decks and get ready for action. This is a no-nonsense, take care of business kind of day. A lunar trine to energizing Mars sustains motivation throughout the day and well into the night. If you get an itch to go beyond the call of duty and venture into a creative or humanitarian project, the stars are on your side. Something magical is brewing so pay heed to crazy impulses and hunches. Later tonight, a thought provoking film or musical performance may be deeply inspiring. It's time to practice random acts of kindness and love generously.
Moon in Sagittarius v/c 12:00AM-8:47AM Moon enters Capricorn, Sun conjunct Mercury.
April 11: Venus' late morning entry into Gemini lightens hearts and could see numerous flirtations. However, the goddess planet is simultaneously at odds with Saturn and Neptune so be wary of giving or receiving mixed signals. A compliment or thoughtful gesture could easily be mistaken for something more than intended. The Capricorn Moon also faces challenges, testing Pluto, Uranus and the Aries Sun during the second half of the day. The Moon's noontime conjunction with Pluto can make some folks very intense, narrowly focused to the point of obsession. Impatience and irreverence are troubling during the mid-afternoon period. Stay alert to bad or outrageous behavior and control your own. Slowing down may help. The stressful last quarter Moon dominates tonight's events. Employ the Golden Rule and give headstrong folks space to do their own thing.
Moon in Capricorn, last quarter Moon in Gemini 11:44PM, Venus enters Gemini.
April 12: A void of course Capricorn Moon gives us all time to relax and get caught up this morning. Tackle household chores and be in touch with friends and family or just relax with a favorite book or magazine. Fiery Mars is also in a splendid sextile with Neptune today, fostering flights of imagination. By early afternoon the Moon arrives in Aquarius where she harmonizes with Venus and Saturn. This is the time to turn your dreams into something tangible. It's also a wonderful afternoon for gadding about, shopping, socializing and putting a friendship on a more solid track. After dusk have a heartfelt talk with a loved one and map out long term plans.
Moon in Capricorn v/c 4:15AM-1:44PM Moon enters Aquarius, Mars sextile Neptune.
April 13: Early risers find shaking off the Monday morning blues a difficult proposition. Some are grouchy but by late morning moods rebound nicely. The day rolls merrily along as the Aquarius Moon opposes optimistic Jupiter. Confidence builds. Travel is swift, messages are loud and clear and personal growth may come in leaps and bounds. Don't get too cocky. Like a boat bobbing on ocean waves, life has its ups and downs. Today however, the enthusiasm carries over into evening and horizons are broad. Try out a new gizmo or the latest software. Meet new friends. Make plans for the future. An after work get together is a fun experience.
Moon in Aquarius.
April 14: A helpful sextile between the Aquarius Moon and Mercury facilitates strong working relationships. Thinking is clear and words are to the point in an unassuming, constructive way. A forgotten idea or previously overlooked information could prove very useful. Take advantage of team spirit today. Everyone has something to contribute. Expect a mood shift late this afternoon when the Moon slips into impressionable Pisces. Here she tests Venus and Saturn, raising red flags for some couples. Complicating matters, Mercury changes signs this evening, entering Taurus. Be patient with loved ones. Fine tune your communication skills. Partnerships may benefit from a thorough review of mutual needs, expectations and commitments. We get back precisely what we put out as Venus makes a midnight opposition to the Lord of Karma, Saturn.
Moon in Aquarius v/c 3:45PM-4:12PM Moon enters Pisces, Mercury enters Taurus.
April 15: As day breaks the Pisces Moon is conjunct dreamy Neptune. Sensitivities are at a peak so heed your gut hunches and psychic impressions. Helping urges are spontaneous, as is showing kindness. The conjunction also stirs compassion for less fortunate souls. During the morning practical matters are masterfully handled as the Moon forms supportive angles with Mars and Pluto. This is a fine day for turning inspired ideas into high quality items that are beautifully crafted as well as functionally useful. The productive period concludes late this afternoon when the Moon begins to travel void of course. Let your imagination wander and plan on relaxing tonight.
Moon in Pisces v/c 5:37PM-12:00AM, Venus opposite Saturn.
April 16: The waning but visionary Pisces Moon continues to meander, void of course until late afternoon. As a result, much of the day is curiously quiet, lacking energy and ambition. Do not attempt any heavy lifting. Things begun during a void of course Moon rarely fulfill expectations so content yourself with routine work requirements and, if time allows, let your imagination take flight. The atmosphere is great for daydreaming! The evening sees the Moon enter Aries where she soon initiates a round of pleasant socializing. Powerful Pluto retrogrades late tonight. The Lord of the Underworld, poised in Capricorn, the sign of big business, could precipitate another round of corporate scandals and global instability. Be cautious with investments.
Moon in Pisces v/c 12:00AM-5:00PM Moon enters Aries, Pluto Retrograde.
April 17: The Cosmos is sending very mixed signals. With Pluto having retrograded last night and this being the last day of a lunar cycle, certain indicators point to sitting tight and waiting for a more definite green light. In contrast, impatient Mars is testing extravagant Jupiter causing some folks to be tempted by smooth talking, pie in the sky dreamers or their own impulsive desires. Don't get lured into an "act now" or "limited time offer" scheme. A fortunate early afternoon trine from the Aries Moon to Jupiter offers a hopeful outlook as well as a good amount of intelligent, analytical thinking. Strategic planning is also aided. But again, the lunar tide is out. File away good ideas and make plans but this is not a good day for making bold moves or risky investments. Evening stresses may reflect pent up frustrations. Be patient.
Moon in Aries, Mars square Jupiter.
April 18: This afternoon's new Moon is the first of the astrological year. Arriving in Aries, the sign of beginnings, it provides liftoff for a good many springtime projects. If you've been waiting to launch a new strategic plan, the cosmos has your back. Mental Mercury is in a helpful sextile to Neptune, prompting wonderful flights of imagination and great creative ideas. The devil is in the details, though. Make sure your plan is carefully thought out and includes an accurate assessment of risks and costs. As signs go, Aries is notorious for impatience and losing interest once a new challenge has been met and routine sets in. How long today's new beginnings will last is anyone's guess. It all comes down to the strength of one's commitment.

April 19: There's springtime enchantment in the morning stars. Plan an outing to a favorite park or spot in nature. Mercury and the Taurus Moon both engage mystical Neptune. The Earth speaks to us with more intensity, her beauty seems more captivating and inspiring under these influences. Mother nature's salubrious effects can be healing and deeply restorative. Sporting events and other contests are appealing afternoon. Be happy to participate or enjoy watching the competition. Respect the game. Not everyone can be a winner. Things slow down by evening when the Moon begins a lengthy void of course period. Take time to get ready for the coming week and also for relaxing.
Moon in Taurus v/c 7:06PM-12:00AM, Mercury sextile Neptune, Venus square Neptune.
April 20: The Sun's early morning arrival into fertile Taurus signals the start of many earth related, spring-themed activities, garden care and planting among them. However, take things slowly. A void of course Taurus Moon oversees much of today's action and offers scant motivation. Minds may time and again outpace the body's ability to keep up. Use self-control. Take things slowly and methodically, one at a time. The somewhat lazy atmosphere does provide time to stop and smell the flowers or listen to springtime birdsongs. The relaxed atmosphere lingers until evening when the Moon enters Gemini. Tonight's conversations are likely to be far-ranging, informative and stimulating. All the same, don't believe everything you hear. Mercury's midnight square with Jupiter could incline some to brag, exaggerate or distort the truth.
Moon in Taurus v/c 12:00AM-7:28PM Moon enters Gemini, Sun enters Taurus.
April 21: Take pains to avoid or clear up any misunderstandings this morning. A lunar square with Neptune puts pie in the sky wonder in some eyes and that in turn can lead to inattention or believing in unproven facts and faulty ideas. If an outcome is doubtful, wait. The afternoon transits are far more promising as the Gemini Moon compliments Venus and Jupiter while Mars also makes a fab trine to Pluto. There's reason to feel optimistic, loved and appreciated. A business opportunity or money-making idea is probably quite good. This is a powerful environment for mending fences with estranged partners, pulling together as a couple or team and making big things happen. Faith and courage are in abundant supply. Use them well and enjoy life.
Moon in Gemini, Mercury square Jupiter, Mars trine Pluto.
April 22: The Gemini Moon, having begun a long void of course period just after midnight, may be taking Earth Day off but the planets have other ideas. Mental Mercury forms a morning trine to Pluto, offering deep understanding of complicated formulas and situations as well as insights into hidden motives. Venus' sextile to Jupiter helps lovers express their affection and facilitates friendly vibes between friends and foes. By evening Mercury has drawn into a conjunction with Mars and it is important to remember words can just as easily encourage as hurt another's feelings. Be tactful, show resolve but with understanding and respect for different points of view. This is an excellent day for recycling and repurposing. Gather your seeds but save the actual planting for another day.
Moon in Gemini v/c 1:38AM-12:00AM, Mercury trine Pluto, Venus sextile Jupiter, Mercury conjunct Mars.
April 23: If you farm or garden and followed yesterday's advice about collecting seeds, now is the time for planting. The Moon is in Cancer, one of the most fertile signs of the zodiac. Her early morning sextile to the earthy Taurus Sun assure optimal growing conditions for things started today. A lunar trine to mystical Neptune dominates the latter half of the day. Nature spirits, devas and the like make their presence felt while many folks revel in daydreams, quiet reveries, sacred spaces, museums and other art palaces. Meditation practices can be notably deep and rewarding. Creative pursuits are driven by active imaginations and many different kinds of Muses. Inspiration can come at any time so listen to the promptings of your heart and soul.
Moon in Gemini v/c 12:00AM-12:25AM Moon enters Cancer.
April 24: It has been more than a month since the last Uranus/Pluto square but the two astrological heavyweights remain less than two degrees out of their confrontational alignment. Instabilities persist. The Cancer Moon tests both planets during the morning hours. Because of the stressful alignments, tension, insecurity and irritability can surface at home or on the job. Care is advised during the commute as the Moon and "in a hurry" Mars join forces. It's best to slow down and stay calm during the early going. By mid-morning calmer heads prevail and the stars ably support rational thinking, negotiating, making decisions and handling financial matters. The early afternoon brings a noticeable letdown. The Moon goes void of course so try to wrap up important business before then. Head home or to a close by, familiar haunt this evening. It's time to get needed rest and relaxation.
Moon in Cancer v/c 1:04PM-12:00AM.
April 25: The quiet early morning hours favor relaxing and sleeping in but by mid-morning the waxing Moon makes an emphatic jump into Leo and the day takes on new life. Finish up the household chores and get down to the business of having some serious springtime fun. It's best to avoid naysayers and doubting Thomases if you want to maximize your pleasure today. For fun, plan a casual get together or more physically challenging outing with upbeat, light-footed, fast-talking and witty friends. Keep a close eye on spending or you'll have cause for regrets this evening when the first quarter Moon tests the Taurus Sun. Find your correct formula for soaking up life's radiant goodness without breaking the bank.
Moon in Cancer v/c 12:00AM-9:13AM Moon enters Leo, First Quarter Moon in Leo 7:55PM.
April 26: Good vibes dominate throughout this most promising and joyful day. A late morning conjunction of the Leo Moon and jolly Jupiter brings a positive outlook and gladdens hearts. Impulses are generous, and encouraging words mark many conversations. The confident mood is further enhanced by a friendly and flirtatious sextile between Venus and Uranus. Follow a hunch. Meet up with friends for spontaneous outings and improvised fun. The good times last well into evening as social auspices continue to be excellent. If you happen to be out and traveling late tonight care is advised. As midnight approaches a lunar square with Mars raises caution flags. Slow down and play it safe.
Moon in Leo, Venus sextile Uranus.
April 27: Gearing up for the work day could require extra careful planning or a detour from the usual thinking and travel routes. A late-morning lunar square to mental Mercury lies behind travel, communication and scheduling problems. This can be a good time to get out of a mental rut but to minimize hassles, simplify your morning. Stick to basics. Double-check meeting times and sensitive information. Keep track of documents, phones and other personal possessions. After the aforementioned square the Leo Moon begins a lengthy void of course period. It may not be possible to locate a missing item or clear up a confusing situation until tomorrow. Avoid making new commitments, major decisions or purchases during this void of course Moon. Creative projects and inner growth work can be quietly satisfying. Plan a relaxing evening and recharge your batteries. Moon in Leo v/c 10:12AM-9:07PM Moon enters Virgo.
April 28: This promises to be a banner day for folks who enjoy keeping busy. The industrious Virgo Moon is in harmony with the Taurus Sun. Because both lights are in practical earth signs the urge to put things in order or improve various skills and working systems is strong. If you decide to go for wholesale changes in a big way, be sure you've got a good handle on the ramifications of your actions. Unwanted consequences can be avoided by apprising higher ups and co-workers of plans. A late afternoon lunar opposition to Neptune raises the possibility of an oversight or lapse in judgment. If everyone is informed and on board with planned changes, the odds of a misstep are greatly reduced.
Moon in Virgo.
April 29: A potent earth sign Grand Trine configuration supports ambitious go-getters. With the waxing Virgo Moon leading the way, attention to detail is important. Work can become so engrossing during the afternoon hours that certain relationships may suffer. Be sure to check in on a sweetheart or co-worker. Someone could be feeling neglected. Not only is this an auspicious day for career matters, the Taurus Sun is also in a fine sextile with visionary Neptune. The sextile helps channel creative and altruistic ideas into concrete actions and results. Visions become things of inspired beauty. Crafts people, artists and musicians do some of their finest work today. Humanitarians are also highly motivated. Pursue emotionally and spiritually elevating activities tonight.
Moon in Virgo, Sun sextile Neptune.
April 30: Despite a smooth, fast start today could have a few hiccups. The Virgo Moon's trine to sign-ruling Mercury begins things auspiciously but then a two hour mid-morning void of course Moon period slows the pace. A change of plans or schedules could be called for. By late morning the Moon arrives in Libra and everything seems to again be moving right along. A lunar sextile to Saturn provides solid motivation to take care of business, and make fair-minded decisions. Priorities seem clear. However, late in the day mental Mercury leaves Taurus and settles into Gemini. The change may take some folks by surprise. For a few hours logical thinking can be muddled or a communication breakdown may also occur. Patient attention to detail is the best way to head off confusion and avoid misunderstandings. Or if possible, just relax and let your thoughts wander as they will.
