Sagittarius Horoscope: April 2013
Hit the Ground Running
You can practically count on finding new forms of fun and experiencing breakthroughs in creativity this month. The pioneering Aries New Moon falls in your 5th House of Self-Expression on April 10, offering fresh opportunities to demonstrate your talents and showcase your desirability. This Sun-Moon conjunction is joined by spicy Mars and sultry Venus, stimulating romantic impulses and flirtatious behavior. You're ready to take the lead in your personal life and in any professional situation that calls for putting on a good show.
Fleet-footed Mercury blasts into uncontainable Aries and your 5th House of Spontaneity on April 13, sparking even more bright ideas and brash statements. The fun quotient in your life is definitely on the upswing, but making it last long enough to produce enduring results could be a major challenge for you. Living in the moment comes easily to your adventurous sign, but when excitement cools you struggle to maintain your interest.
The pace starts to change when sensual Venus enters stable Taurus and your 6th House of Employment on April 15. Slowing down to enjoy your work instead of rushing to get things done can improve your skills and earn you additional approval for your efforts.
The Sun and Mars enter Taurus on April 19 and April 20, placing more emphasis on your job and increasing your commitment to excellence. Your persistent efforts at self-improvement are admirable, but a stubborn streak could make you less flexible about changing your methods.
The emotional Scorpio Lunar Eclipse on April 25 rattles your 12th House of Secrets, where it could expose an inconvenient truth. Saturn's conjunction to this Full Moon reminds you to redouble your efforts to work through your fears and self-limitations instead of taking the easy way out and settling for less.
Keep in Mind this Month
Investing more of yourself in the activities you enjoy ensures that they will continue to be significant sources of pleasure for many years to come.
Key Dates for Sagittarius
April 1: Window of Opportunity
You can impress others easily today when the confident Aries Sun in your 5th House of Self-Expression forms a supportive sextile with lucky Jupiter in your 7th House of Others. It's an excellent time to make a sales pitch or initiate a professional relationship. Enrolling people in your plan works especially well if you can match your enthusiasm with your command of the facts.
SUPER NOVA DAYS
April 20-21: Curb Your Enthusiasm
The smartest way to use a bright idea is to test it before fully committing to it. An optimistic Sun-Jupiter semisquare and ingenious Mercury-Uranus conjunction on April 20 lights up your mind with brainstorms of originality. But a tendency to act too quickly or say too much too soon can undermine your plan before it gets off the ground. You might feel like you can do anything on April 21, when zealous Jupiter stresses superhero Mars. Fighting for your beliefs may seem like a noble endeavor, but passion alone doesn't prove that you're right. When the truth is on your side, you can present it in a calm, self-confident manner.
