Virgo Horoscope: April 2013
Although you begin April with a surge of progress, by mid-month the noise begins to settle down, enabling you to sustain your enthusiasm while seeking new ways to widen your horizons. Your normally cautious approach to change is at odds with the challenges you face with a cluster of planets in impulsive Aries and your 8th House of Transformation.
You bring an especially creative approach to relationships from April 6-8, when animated Mars, amorous Venus and the Sun aspect poetic Neptune in your 7th House of Partners. The assertive Aries New Moon on April 10 conjuncts Mars and Venus in your 8th House of Transformation, motivating you to move beyond the status quo by embracing the future rather than holding on to the past.
However, resistant Saturn in your 3rd House of Immediate Environment forms an irritating quincunx with uncontrollable Uranus on April 12, escalating your discomfort with any transitions that are unfolding too fast. Fortunately, quicksilver Mercury dashes into trailblazing Aries on April 13, giving you a much-needed new perspective to handle current developments.
On April 15, resourceful Venus enters your 9th House of Higher Thought and Faraway Places, raising your interest in subjects and activities that expand your mind and broaden your view of the world. The Sun enters dependable Taurus and your 9th House of Higher Thought and Faraway Places on April 19, followed by Mars on April 20, reinforcing your pragmatic approach to growth.
Taskmaster Saturn's opposition to Venus on April 22 and the Sun on April 28 may slow your progress substantially by placing obstacles in your path, compelling you to work hard without necessarily seeing immediate gain. The enigmatic Scorpio Full Moon on April 25 is a Lunar Eclipse that conjuncts Saturn in your 3rd House of Communication, requiring you to concentrate on one task at a time.
Keep in Mind this Month
Reaching your goals may depend upon your ability to turn your passion at the beginning of a project into sheer determination and willpower later on.
Key Dates for Virgo
April 1: Sunny-Side Up
It's easy to imagine that you can accomplish nearly anything today because exuberant Jupiter in your 10th House of Career and Public Life is illuminated by a supportive sextile from the Sun in fearless Aries. Others may think that you're lucky, but it's your positive attitude that's at the root of your current good fortune.
SUPER NOVA DAYS
April 25-28: Practical Magic
Your life feels unpredictable right now. Even though the Sun, Venus and Mars are all in down-to-earth Taurus, a magnetic Scorpio Lunar Eclipse in your 3rd House of Immediate Environment on April 25 infuses you with a sense of instability. The Full Moon Eclipse conjuncts concrete Saturn, enchanting you with the power of your desires and the possibility of concentrating your emotional intensity to get what you want. Your fascination with what lies beyond the real world is encouraged by an illusory Mars-Neptune sextile on April 26. However, the karmic Sun-Saturn opposition on April 28 indicates that you won't get away with outsmarting reality if you try to stretch it too far.
