Friends and colleagues can be critical to the quality of your professional life this month. April begins with four planets in your 11th House of Groups, putting a premium on cooperation. However, they are in feisty Aries, which tends toward independent thinking. Finding ways to deal with aggressive co-workers and competitive individuals can make the difference between progress and conflict during the first half of April.
Turning on the charm around April 6 could take some of the bitterness out of a working relationship. It's essential, though, to find ways to express yourself honestly without inciting defensiveness and anger from others. Use your sense of humor and intellectual flexibility to keep conversations from overheating. The Aries New Moon on April 10 could spark a fresh project or change of allies.
April 13 should be significant because your cerebral ruling planet, Mercury, fires into Aries that day. The pace of thinking and talking is likely to quicken. Genius ideas might burst out on April 20 when Mercury joins innovative Uranus, yet your concepts may be ahead of their time or require simplification for others to understand them.
Patience is a must because sociable Venus, the willful Sun, and active Mars all enter stable and slow-moving Taurus on April 15, 19 and 20. These transits occur in your 12th House of Behind-the-Scenes Activities, which can make it more difficult to get the attention your thoughts deserve. Biding your time until the right moment arrives may not be easy, but could be critical if you want your words taken seriously.
