April Horoscope for Sagittarius

(November 22nd – December 21st)

You may be fixed on your finances this month, so why not make this work for you and create a budget. It’s time to understand just what’s coming in and going out and why. Relationships are a challenge, but only if you bring the past into the moment and try to recreate it. Keep things fresh and new. Pay attention to your spiritual needs they’re strong now. Spend some time alone.

Can you distinguish between fake news and the truth? It’s more important than you realize. What you may not understand is how important your thoughts are. What you believe to be true is what you base your decisions on. And the decisions you make, even the ones that seem so inconsequential, are what create your life. Your mission is to get to the truth, to go beyond the surface, the chatter, the beliefs of others, and discover something real and lasting. It’s not easy to see what we don’t want to see, to look at reality and deal with it. But if we don’t, we live in a La La Land that has no power or ability to manifest. It’s just an escape into fantasy. If you want to feel your power, if you want others to see you as strong, then find the courage to seek the truth. The sign of Sagittarius rules beliefs and the beliefs you embrace determine your level of consciousness.  A higher consciousness is determined by your ability to transcend your animal instincts. Can you rise above your own human needs and see another and greater reality.

The Full Moon on the 30th falls in your 12th house – the unconscious and your spirituality. Most Sagittarians have a deep yearning to connect to their spiritual side and a higher power. It’s what often sends them out into the world in search of “something”. That something may be a desire to succeed, to achieve fame, a yearning to explore and discover, or a quest for the truth. They are seeking an environment that makes them feel at home. With the Moon in the 12th house, that yearning is activated and they once again feel the need to reach for something more. It’s a time to reconnect with your sense of destiny. You’re here for a reason, no matter how big or small, personal or global. Don’t judge yourself for the past, accept yourself and start from where you are. This is a time to acknowledge your inner yearnings, your quest for something important just to you.

With Mercury, the ruler of your 10th house of career, you may feel stuck when it comes to advancing your goals.  Mercury is retrograde until the 15th so don’t begin to move forward until then. Add a square from Saturn as soon as Mercury is direct and you realize that there’s no way things are going to move quickly. If you want a raise or if you’re independent and looking for new ways to make money, this is a time to see what’s stopping you. When you can identify the problem you can fix it.  There is always a way, but that requires we go beyond our old limits and think outside the box. This is your chance to break free of old patterns and allow yourself to be challenged. If you do, things will begin to move forward.

Finances have a mixed message. There is a strong emphasis on making money, perhaps even an obsession on the details of how and where it comes and goes. What a perfect time to create a budget. With Saturn, Pluto and Mars in conjunction in Capricorn it will be the focus of the month. To add to the challenge, Mars is square Uranus, which indicates anger. You are not happy with how others have influenced you when it comes to your finances, but then the truth is you’re in charge. You can’t rely on others and then blame them. So take responsibility for whatever is going on and you’ll get to the bottom of the problem.

Gemini rules your house of relationships and Mercury, its ruler, is retrograde until the 15th. If you’re in a relationship it’s a good time to deal with old issues and see if you can straighten them out. People from your past can appear and hopefully you’ll be happy to see them. But Mercury is also square Saturn so there will be things that annoy you; that you’d rather avoid – but can’t. The best thing to do is to  sit down and be honest with each other. If you keep pushing things under the rug the pile only gets bigger and nothing gets resolved. If you’re single, this is not a great time to meet someone unless, of course, your personal chart says differently. You’re not in the right state of mind to open yourself up to someone new. Old issues from past relationships may be getting you down. The challenge is not to let the old influence the new. That’s why we call it baggage; we bring the past into the moment and recreate it over and over again.

Neptune has been in your 4th house since 2012. A loner by nature, this aspect would activate it more acutely. What it’s really trying to tell you is to not depend on the worldly things to make you happy. You are a soul that is strongly connected to spirit, but your sense of isolation may also prevent you from connecting to your soul and its path. Open yourself up to nature, your intuition, creativity of any kind and you’ll find your way back to your core.
