April is a time for pioneers, innovators and risk takers. The month starts with four planets in Aries, the first sign of the zodiac. This time is ideal for starting projects but not necessarily having the skills to complete them. There's an antsy, itchy feeling that's great for motivating bold actions and new professional directions. Creativity is very high around April 6 when artistic and sociable Venus joins punchy and passionate Mars. The ability to charm others can help to sell concepts on the backs of strong personalities. However, facts might be overlooked in the rush to make things happen right now!
The Aries New Moon on April 10 continues this impulsive trend. It's fine to leap into a different job or sudden opportunity because this is a season of change. Yet the thrill of the chase will fade quickly if we're unable to slow down and deal with the routine tasks that are an essential part of working life. Currents cross when mental Mercury enters Aries on April 13 to speed up thinking and accelerate conversations.
Yet only two days later Venus moseys into stable Taurus where relationships and values need to be put on a more solid foundation. Anger, impatience, and initiative are taken to another level when the Sun joins Mars on April 17. But that may be the last blast of impulsiveness before the Sun enters Taurus on April 19 ... with Mars following on April 20. Settling down to a slower pace is needed to ensure the continuity of resources and relationships needed for professional success.
