This month shapes up to be lively and eventful. There may be a certain amount of confusing or conflictual information to sort out before Mercury, the planet of communication, paper work, and travel, is no longer retrograde starting on the 4th. After that, you should be able to more easily handle information or integrate your personal affairs in a more satisfactory and clear manner. Usually when Mercury goes direct, life assumes more of a normal rhythm and the linear functions of the mind seem to work more smoothly. This can be an excellent period for research, rescheduling trips, or for handling important communications.
On the 10th, Pluto, the planet of transformation and regeneration, goes retrograde. Some may experience this energy as a form of a psychological pressure because of unresolved current events, but this period can be profound for spiritual studies, or, on the mundane level, handling situations related to gov’t funds, pensions, taxes, retirement benefits, or important banking matters. On health-related matters, Pluto is related to the process of detoxification.
Also significant is that the action planet Mars is no longer retrograde and goes direct in motion on the 13th. This change can correspond with the release of a great deal of pent-up mental, emotional or physical energy. If you have a major project in mind, something you wish to start related to business or financial gain, new creative activities, or to set up important travel plans – the period after the 13th can be excellent for taking a chance and moving forward. But stay aware the Mars represents the expression of anger and there could be sudden flair-ups if you’re taken off-guard. Mars is also related to military actions and there may be major decision along these lines related to Syria and other hotspots around the world.
Health-wise, Mars is the significator of such healing practices as acupuncture, vigorous physical exercise, muscle development, or beneficial surgical procedures to help allieviate pain, if necessary. Overall, April is one of the more active and productive months of the year to brighten our lives during the blossoming of spring.
