Your Monthly Horoscope for April
Although you'll be happy at home and contented within yourself, you'll feel at times you're pushing boulders uphill elsewhere in your life in the first three weeks. Confidential matters, both financial and emotional, will need attention and fixes found where there have been differences. At times it'll seem all work and no play since loved ones will be demanding and you won't find it easy to let your hair down and enjoy yourself spontaneously. Do what your conscience tells you is enough and then put down a few limits. With Venus in your opposite sign the affectionate support of one close partner won't be in doubt and you'll be in social demand so there will be some high points as well. From the 21st you'll be aiming higher, thinking bigger and talking more confidently, spreading your opinions around widely. Your feelings will be running hot and strong at the same time.
and Next Month's Horoscope for May

You won't want to be stuck in a rut doing the same old-same old, but will be venturing into the odd risk to waken up your life. This is a time to think big, speak confidently and broaden your horizons however you can. Your ambitions will also be on display since you've no intention of being outwitted or outdone by anyone. You'll work hard, put your foot down about others doing the same and be keen to see tangible results for your efforts.

Relationships within the wider family will be easier as well with a generally hopeful mood about sharing ideals and hopes for the future. Which isn't to say you won't feel weighed down at times by the responsibilities that loved ones are landing on you. There'll be less time and energy for kicking up your heels socially. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't try to inject more adventure into your leisure activities and demand more attention for yourself. Your heart will yearn for more exciting trips and travel so make the effort to move out of your comfort zone once in a while. You'll be exploring new ideas and belief systems and opening your mind to a new view of the world. If those close scoff at your unconventional interests you won't care. April to June will find you battling ambitiously ahead, determined to make your mark and gain recognition for your talents. Though it'll be all too tempting to withdraw into your intimate surroundings and stay in your comfortable shell. After mid-year, you'll gear yourself up to sort out a long-term plans that gives you sensible goals to aim for and a practical strategy for making it work. A wider circle of friends will be around to keep you company and offer advice.

Tightening your belt and cutting out extravagances will boost your security and give you peace of mind. From December you'll move into a more buoyant, enthusiastic, sociable and confident phase which augurs well for 2020.
