Heavenly Headlines

April 2021

The go-ahead Aries Sun until the 19th will be less restricted and hassled than last year with only Pluto remaining in square to slow progress mid month. Enthusiastic plans should work out with expansive Jupiter blowing fair winds and Mars in Gemini until the 23rd will speed up everyday trips and make for lively if not argumentative conversations. There won’t be any shortage of motivation or confidence.

   Venus in Aries will make for adventurous social occasions and romantic escapades until mid month. Then a gradual shift into earthy, indulgent, possessive Taurus will make for a pleasure-seeking though stubborn mood. The Sun and Mercury will join in from the 20th to bring a steadier pace, a more practical outlook and common sense though there’ll be a surprise or two before the month is out. Mars moving into Cancer in the final week will be volatile, excitable, emotionally assertive.
