Cancer Horoscope: April 2013
Call of the Wild
This month gets off to a fiery start with four planets ramming through rowdy Aries and your 10th House of Career and Public Life. Although you are normally cautious about asserting yourself at work, you are growing more impatient every passing day and want your perspective taken into immediate consideration. It's exciting to forge ahead boldly as an uncharacteristic desire to take risks pulls you outside your comfort zone.
Mercury adds to the uncertainty as it swims through murky Pisces in your 9th House of Adventure and into unexplored territory. The action picks up on April 7 as creative Venus conjuncts with hyperactive Mars in your 10th House of Career and Public Life. You're challenged to keep up the frenetic pace, yet when the powerhouse Aries New Moon on April 10 joins Venus and Mars, your enthusiasm prompts you to show off your leadership skills.
You may have doubts about your professional objectives on April 12, as restraining Saturn forms an anxious quincunx to unsettling Uranus in your 10th House of Status. You might secretly wish you could retreat into the safety of anonymity, but persuasive Mercury helps you talk your way back into the public eye on April 13, as it enters your 10th House of Status.
You long for peace and quiet when Venus shifts into pastoral Taurus on April 15, and you may actually find time to relax when the Sun slips into easygoing Taurus and your 11th House of Community on April 19, followed by Mars on April 20. Although you may worry about the changes foretold with karmic Saturn's conjunction to the Scorpio Lunar Eclipse on April 25, you can handle them successfully if you rely on your common sense … and a little help from your friends.
Keep in Mind this Month
Marshal your courage, let go of the shore and head out to sea. The swiftly moving currents of change will carry you to your destination.
Key Dates for Cancer
April 6-8: Waves of Temptation
You feel the subtle, yet powerful, pull of enchanting Neptune these days, as it creates stressful aspects with sexy Mars, sensual Venus, and the brilliant Sun. Your creativity is irrepressible, especially when cosmic lovers Venus and Mars hook up on April 7. But Neptune's presence in your 9th House of Big Ideas indicates that the dream of starting a project or embarking on an adventure might be better than actually doing it. See how you feel in a few days before getting in over your head.
SUPER NOVA DAY
April 25: Stop and Go
You don't know whether to step on the gas or slam on the brake today due to the passionate Scorpio Lunar Eclipse aligning with hot Mars and cold Saturn. The Moon is eclipsed in your 5th House of Love and Creativity, so you find it challenging to express yourself in the moment. Fortunately, a smooth trine to compassionate Neptune enables you to take the high road, as long as you remember that faith has helped you overcome obstacles in the past and will do so again in the future.
