April 2017 Horoscope by Elaine Marolakos Edelson

Astrowheellg* Mercury is in retrograde April 9 until May 3, first in Taurus then in Aries. Your Sun Sign is your theme. Your Rising Sign is your daily wealth, health, passion and purpose. Read both for true results.

ARIES March 21-April 20

Before investing time, energy and money in a project, feel it through. It’s imperative that you value yourself first, not the widget or financial proposal. It might feel like do or die, but it isn’t. Pause. Breathe. You’re being given a gift by being shown your unconscious sabotage alongside your superpower. Allow realizations to heal, then fortify your resolve as you move forward. Leaping without looking? Your body will rebel. Your body, mind and spirit connection ushers in Love and prosperity.

TAURUS April 21-May 21

Neglecting yourself? Throw integrity out of the window. Anxiety, grief and ambivalence compromise your head, eyes, blood system, ears, neck, throat and thyroid. Be true to your needs. Rest. Release the past. Counseling or healing modalities help to work out the kinks. Uncover mistrust and how it manifests as impatience, stubbornness or blind loyalty. Multiply that grind by future days. Tired yet? If you allow, angels enter. Your truth becomes clear. You matter because your matter is Divine.

GEMINI May 22-June 21

If you withhold your honest truth from others or hoard stuff (cash, energy, ideas), you attract reactions to help balance your extremes. It’s not about women or challenges outside yourself, but it echoes loss and letting go of friends or groups with whom you’ve identified. Who you are is what you’ll attract. Express a truer version of your truth, and you’ll magnetize your tribe. They’ll resonate your frequency, reflect your sparkle and support your dreams.

CANCER June 22-July 22

Partnerships that began (resurfaced?) in December or early January return. Retrogrades are revealing times, yet they also leave you feeling unresolved. There’s no good or bad about it, just the question of how to proceed. You and your spouse have heart to hearts about lifestyle changes. Also not good or bad. Sudden events prompt conversations about home, parents and bucket lists. Though retrogrades aren’t times for decisive or impulsive actions, it is time to think long range.

LEO July 23-Aug. 23

You want to edit, retract, declare or make a sudden right turn in life, but you need to slow down. Step back. Review your options. No matter how terrific the potential proposal sounds, some intel is missing. If you’re just wanting to play and take a workshop in something fun, go for it. When traveling, keep an eye on important papers and don’t allow anyone or anything to rush you. Profundity shines in minor details and experiences. Allow.

VIRGO Aug. 24-Sept. 23

Financial prowess won’t alter the numbers on the calculator. Be mindful about how to proceed. Now’s not the time to act rashly. Investments, real estate, buying, selling, taxes, estate planning and future earning potential rule the day. Feeling ruled by finances? Your options are plentiful. You don’t have to do it all. Repeat, “My needs are met, even if I don’t know how to meet them.” Trust that you trust the universe to support you.

LIBRA Sept. 24-Oct. 23

Tapped out? The beauty of this interval is coming to terms with your stubbornness, talents and control issues. Who wants to admit they’re controlling? What’s that mean anyway, other than you want things a certain way? Needing to direct the flow indicates lack of faith. Regarding mates, partners and clients: Speak your mind, then let them grow at their own pace. Harmony is achieved through creating tiny bridges of trust, not extremes. Love self and them equally. Cake.

SCORPIO Oct. 24-Nov. 22

There might be a disconnect with your work practices, inciting mini tantrums from employees, especially if you’re impulsive, dictatorial or unclear. Not everyone can move as fast as you. Vacation? That or your body will rebel, causing you to be immobilized anyway. Heed the body, mind and spirit alignment, and create a streamline flow of inspiration straight from Love. Support hormones, adrenals, head, blood and ears, and temper the sugar or alcohol. You’ll benefit more.

SAGITTARIUS Nov. 23-Dec. 21

Former romances or ex partners invade your thoughts or email. That, or you discover something about your partner, shedding light on your own personality. Been too passive? Too aggressive? Communicating well? You’ve heard that it takes two to tango, and you can’t have it both ways. Yet you can have a clearer vision of how to live your life. Not with ultimatums but by valuing yourself. Anything less dishonors all. What do you want? Articulate.

CAPRICORN Dec. 22-Jan. 20

If mom’s still here, she might be undergoing a huge transformation. It’s almost as if your life passes before your eyes: things you’ve done, you have left to do or you wished you hadn’t done. Pack up old memories, clear clutter, buy or sell real estate, then ponder where to go from here. It isn’t so much about four walls but who you are within them. Make space in your home and energy flows, lending sudden inspiration and profound awareness.

AQUARIUS Jan. 21-Feb. 19

Foot in mouth disease? It’s easily cured by pausing before speaking. Be aware of volunteering for something that you really, really don’t want to do. That impulsive part of you thinks it “should” go to extremes by either making it all about you or all about them. Conflict in your world reflects your inner doubt. Feel things through first. Train yourself to listen to your intuition by acknowledging your gut reactions.

PISCES Feb. 20-March 20

All that soul searching begins to reveal messages from within and beyond. Your values are changing. What you once held dear is no longer as important. What’s key to advancing with projects, family matters, education (learning or teaching) and even travel are words. Words matter: what you think, where those thoughts come from and how you express yourself. Release outdated beliefs. Use honest words to create your truth. Start with Love before you utter a sound.
