pril showers bring May flowers in the professional realm of our worlds. Now is the time to plant the seeds for the future and to see where it takes us. Changes are underway and coming in the next two months, which is why April serves as an ideal month to manifest professional visions and to assess the future.
The new moon on April 1st helps steady matters out by giving you the means to push through issues that come your way. The loose ends that have been taking a toll on completing projects and forcing you to put a pin in situations will be completed on April 16th’s full moon and April 29th’s Pluto retrograde. This means that you will have room for abundance and new professional opportunities that are coming your way.
The month ahead is making you second guess the vision you originally set out to accomplish, particularly when Venus swims into Pisces on April 5th. Finding your new role may be confusing. Luckily, you don’t have to have it all figured out immediately. Think about what sparks your interest, then move towards that. More importantly, be easy on yourself and believe in your dreams. Then, you will flourish during your solar return on April 19th.
The question and issue that you’re dealing with this month is about whether this is the right path for you to pursue, also if you wish to continue on it in the future. As you roam through April, you’ll realise that your colleagues and boss aren’t pulling their weight and making you take on the brunt of the work. You won’t be able to speak up until April 29th and 30th, when you’ve had enough.
Get ready for your career to rock and roll. April 1st’s new moon is a chance to level up your professional game. Be very careful before taking this on, as you might bite off more than you can chew. Too many projects will make you feel off-balance on April 16th’s full moon. The only way to counteract this energy is to make sure that you are maintaining an equilibrium between your personal and professional worlds.
If you haven’t been getting the appreciation from your boss that you deserve, it’s going to sting a bit more when they don’t give you positive feedback. This stems from differing work styles that are presenting themselves as larger obstacles when the Sun moves into Taurus on April 19th. It’ll create tension, but the energy will calm down by the time the solar eclipse occurs in the career sector of your chart on April 30th.
The end of April will put you at a professional high. Mercury’s planetary ingress into Gemini on the 29th will make you rethink the direction that you are taking with your career and the plans that you have made. The good news is that this will bring you to an emotional high which will allow you to take leaps and bounds when it comes to jump-starting the new path of your career next month.
This is a wonderful month for you to experience tremendous upgrades and business changes. Your outlook will take on a new level of awareness that will shift your professional focus. There is a great deal of autonomy being asked of you. Whether or not you own a business or you are generally working for yourself, allow Venus’s shift into Pisces on April 5th to open your mind to fresh inspiring visions and bring financial well-being.
You might be surprised at all the genius ideas bouncing around the office or work place on April 14th, when one of your ruling planets, Mars, moves into the sign of Pisces. It’s not just you coming up with all the great ideas for once! However, this transit also brings a threat of easily losing focus so if you’re on a deadline, watch to make sure you’re not getting thrown too far off the task.
You are evolving and growing at a personal level, which is why your professional aspirations are changing. The caveat is that you may not be able to make any major changes or move forward at this time — especially on April 12th and 14th. If you’re finding that you are lazier than ever, due to the Neptunian haze, then a creative outlet will help you find your footing and centre your energies at this time.
If you’ve been having any interpersonal issues with a coworker, then conflicts may emerge during April 1st’s new moon and April 16th’s full moon. Trust your intuition on whether or not it’s a good time to try and heal any wounds at this time due to Mercury gliding into Gemini and Pluto retrograde commencing on the 29th. Listen to the vibe that they’re putting out, as they may be unable to have a productive conversation.
If you haven’t been getting the appreciation from your boss that you so rightly deserve, it’s going to sting a bit more than usual this month. Pluto’s planetary moonwalk on April 29th, followed by the solar eclipse in Taurus on April 30th occurs, you’ll seek the praise that you should be receiving or you will make moves to leave your current position as they’re not showing you the appreciation that’s needed to keep you happy.
Set boundaries with colleagues and try not to soak up everything in your environment on April 12th, 27th, and 30th due to the overwhelming cosmic energy. You’re aware of the layers that people aren’t saying out loud and doing behind your back during this time, from your deep intuition. Your spidey senses are high, which means that you need to keep your distance to ensure that you can manoeuvre out of uncomfortable situations at work.
