Aquarius Horoscope for April 2013
By Susan Miller
After weeks of dealing with Mercury retrograde (until March 17) and many delays that were beginning to drive you a little crazy, early to mid-April will be highly productive and very much in tune with all you hope to accomplish. As the month opens, you may be busy writing, speaking, traveling, or negotiating a major contract. Many heavenly bodies, all in enterprising Aries, are now gathering in your third house of communication, including Uranus (genius, and disruption), Mars (energy and action), Venus (beautiful design, fun, and romance), and the Sun (authority and strength). The fact that Uranus is included means that these areas are important to you now, for Uranus is your ruling planet.
To package all these diverse energies, the new moon will soon arrive in Aries at 21 degrees, on April 10, and will be operative for ten glorious days. If you decide to pack your suitcase and head out the door, if only for a weekend, you will likely go a short distance, not too far from home, to a place that can give you a chance to relax, do sports, and possibly to enjoy camping. You seem to be in a mood for a bit of adventure, so with many planets in Aries, you may travel to compete in a race or other athletic contest, as Aries is a sign that teaches us it may be a good idea to try new physical activities (assuming your doctor agrees, of course).
If you would rather get your adventure off a computer screen (after all, you are Aquarius, and Aquarius LOVES the digital life), you still would benefit from traveling, albeit with your computer or iPad. Imagine going to a new setting to enjoy the new season, get fresh air, and in your case, the ability to return to a cozy hotel room with a heavenly bed where you can settle in and use the hotel's WiFi. Romance and travel will go hand-in-hand this month, as Venus in Aries blends beautifully with your Aquarius Sun.
I will digress for a moment here to discuss the most wildly romantic moment of the month, when Venus and Mars will have a rendezvous over Friday, April 5, through Sunday April 7, in a once-in-two-year occurrence. Venus and Mars love to be together, although they can't get to see one another nearly as often as they would like. In any chart, when you see Venus orbiting close to Mars, it's called a sex appeal aspect, because the combined energy of Venus (polar energy female) and Mars (polar energy male) is to fan the spark of love. The moon will be in Aquarius on Friday, April 5, making this day an especially wonderful four-star day. This is the first time Venus and Mars have met in Aries since 1985, so make the most of this weekend!
Now I will return to talking about how you can use the new moon of April 10 to greatest advantage.
You may have a different reason to travel this month - other than to enjoy romance - and that would be to see family, but most specifically to see a sister or brother. The third house, so lit up for you, rules siblings. If you want to create a plan with your sister or brother, say, to stage a family reunion or do something special for your mother, as two examples, do so after the new moon, April 10 or during the ten days that follow.
If you don't travel, the many Aries planets may bring you writing or speaking assignments, as the third house, where these planets are gathering, will tap your skills in communication. With Jupiter in Gemini, this would be an ideal time to begin (or put the final touches on) a book or screenplay manuscript, business plan, thesis, or other key documents.
If a new project does come up, you will be centering your attention on something very new, as Aries rules the untried path - the pioneer. In that regard, it may be that you are designing a new app or software that is very innovative. Following along the line of communication, you may successfully begin planning (or launching) a new publicity campaign, an advertising campaign, or working on getting a new look to your new website or blog. If self-employed, you might also want to begin to redesign your logo, stationery, and business cards.
If you need to sign a contract, the days just after the new moon, April 10, would be an ideal time to do so. As said earlier, Aries energy is fast, but when you sign a contract, the last thing you need to do is sign quickly. You would be best to take your time, confer with your lawyer, and then choose a date to sign.
This month, if your birthday falls within five days of January 6, this new moon will affect you the most, and you will benefit from it, too. If you have your natal chart, look to see if you have any planet at 6 degrees, plus or minus five degrees, of Aquarius, Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, or Gemini, for that planet will benefit from this new moon too.
Here are two days you will want to watch carefully:
On April 19 and 20, Mercury will link to Uranus, your ruler, sure to be a spectacular day to come up with new ideas especially in regard to any communication project. Writers, make use of this day! It's a superb time to brainstorm, for the innovative, original ideas you come up with will surprise you, along with all in your team. Uranus is your ruler, so who better than you to harness this energy?
One of the finest days for signing a contract would be April 23, when Mercury in Aries will signal Jupiter, giver of gifts and luck - and also profits. Jupiter is now in Gemini, helping you excel in all your communications
As you get closer to month's end, on April 25, a major full moon lunar eclipse will appear in Scorpio and will bring a major development involving your career within five days plus or minus this date. If you have been interviewing for a new position in the weeks and months leading to this full moon lunar eclipses, you will finally be told whether you have won the position or not, or if self-employed, whether the business you pitched will be yours.
The job you will be discussing will be clearly very high level, as indicated by the position of Saturn in your tenth house of career status. The ancient astrologers used to call this "the house of dignity" where members of the community view you as having risen in status. Saturn, to stay in Scorpio until September 2015, will hold your feet to the fire, to make sure you work hard and follow rules to the letter, but if you work with Saturn, you will rise very high and be respected in your industry in a way you will find thrilling.
If you don't get this position (I still think you have a great shot at nabbing it now), you seem destined for something big in the months ahead. You want the right setting to show off your talents and experience, dear Aquarius, so that like rare diamond, you can show off your facets most brilliantly.
Saturn will be conjunct the full moon eclipse, adding a strong gravitas to the events near April 25. Because three planets have gathered in your fourth house of home by this point, and that Saturn will get ready to oppose Venus and Mars, as well as the Sun, it is clear something is going on at home, and whatever it is may give you pause about what you humanly can take on in your career right now. All full moons have an area of influence of five days on either side of the day it appears, so keep your antenna up.
If you don't hear about a new job now, you may one month to the day later, on May 25, plus or minus five days. (The reason for the delay of a month has to do with certain mathematics in your own chart that I cannot see and that are too hard to go into here - the point is, if you don't hear career news, you still might hear at the end of May.
Saturn will oppose the Sun to exact degree over the weekend of April 27-28, and extend its influence to April 29, a time when you and your partner may not get along or when you may be concerned about one of your parent's health. You appear to have someone near you at month's end who is suffering in poor health, or who is giving you a hard time.
Still, Pluto, the planet of transformation, will be friendly to this eclipse, and Pluto is in your solar twelfth house of hidden actions, suggesting you will have supporters behind the scenes to help you through any difficulties that you may encounter. Pluto's position in your twelfth house also suggests that if a family member has to be hospitalized or enter other medical facility, you can, with due diligence, find the right care for your beloved relative.
You may be negotiating up a storm with five planets in assertive Aries in your third house of communication. A contract on your desk may need to be signed, but before that happens, you appear to need to talk though many points. The new moon, April 10, will start the conversation going, and because planets in Aries are highly supportive to your Sun, you'll likely see the pieces of your puzzle will neatly fit into place.
You seem to be involved in a project that deals in a very new area for you, and this assignment will give you the opportunity to pioneer into a new realm and possibly help you set the tone for others who will follow you. Details will count, so keep all your notes organized and in one place, including new phone numbers and email addresses you will pick up from new contacts this month.
You may travel too in April, and if so, the location you will go to will be fairly close to home - Venus' presence in your trip sector suggests you'll love the setting. See if you can flee town over the weekend of April 6-7 for the very best possible, highly romantic experience.
Your sister or brother will be on your mind too in early to mid-April - check in, for your sibling may have important, rather exciting news to share. It would be news you'd never expect to hear, doubly so if you hear it over April 20.
A huge career opportunity or development is very likely over the lunar eclipse April 25, plus or minus four days. This moment may crystallize a series of meetings you've had leading up to this date, perhaps going back many weeks or months. If you do get an offer for a new position or impressive promotion, it is likely to be an extremely responsible position, with the pressure you'd expect to go with it. Be sure you will be compensated justly - for the coming nearly three years, you'll have a lot to learn, much to do, and very little time for yourself. Expectations of you will be sky high, so you may feel the pressure. If you master this position, you will become a force to be reckoned with in your industry. Saturn will conjoin this eclipse, accounting for the serious thread that will run through news you receive. Make no mistake - this could be the offer of a lifetime, and one you should consider carefully.
Eclipses always bring a floodlight of information and build on events that have been going on up to the time the eclipse falls, sometimes for a very long time. With an eclipse, we must allow for the possibility for untoward news, too - that your company is not doing well, that layoffs may be in the works, or that you didn't get the job you had interviewed for so diligently. You might have to brace for that, but if so, chances were that you will have seen small indications that this true. It also may be that your boss, possibly a female VIP, may announce that she is leaving her post, and when news comes out, it will shock you.
As you see, at eclipse time (within five days, plus or minus April 25), you may feel the career message you receive is either jarring or thrillingly positive. In the former case, you may be able to guess which way things go as you read this. You may have picked up subtle indications of the direction events are about to take - clues so tiny you may have overlooked them or dismissed them had you not looked closely.
Not withstanding the possibility that news might be not what you hoped to hear, it seems more likely that career news will be very positive because Pluto will be very helpful to this eclipse. A powerful person based behind the scenes apparently cares about your future - and that is a fact you can practically take to the bank. Eventually you may find out the identity of your benefactor, if you don't know who it is now.
You seem destined to get your big career opportunity in 2013 or in early 2014 to show the world what you are capable of doing. The new job will represent plenty of long hours, hard work, and the taking on of responsibilities so new you'll have to spend a lot of time to learn the ropes. Saturn's presence in your career sector suggests you will soon encounter the defining moment you will long remember.
Dates to note Aquarius:
Most romantic dates: April 1, 4, 5, 6, 10, 13, 14, 18, 19, and 24.
Travel over the weekend of April 6-7 when Venus and Mars, together, will make sure you enjoy the most romantic getaway possible.
Much more travel will dot your schedule after the new moon April 10 (plus ten days). Getting away will do you a world of good.
You may decide to spontaneously take a weekend getaway over the weekend of April 20-21, due to the meeting of Mercury and Uranus in your house of short travel.
Your career will reach an important juncture at the lunar full moon eclipse April 25 - prepare to make a faithful decision.
Save time for family over April 27-28, when one of your parents (most likely your father) may need assistance from you, due to the opposition to the Sun and Saturn.
Your home will become a much bigger focus from April 20 until May 30. If you need to make any grand moves regarding your residence or other property, it will most likely happen in that time period.
