Capricorn Horoscope: April 2013

Shifting Sands

The earth shifts beneath your feet this month, causing you to question the life path you've chosen. April begins with four planets, including volatile Uranus, moving through restless Aries and your 4th House of Foundations, stirring up excitement on the home front. The ardent Aries New Moon on April 10 energizes your domestic 4th House and shifts your concerns away from work so you can spend more time with your family.

An anxious Uranus-Saturn quincunx highlights your 11th House of Community on April 12, pitting your need for freedom against the restrictions of social and professional obligations. This destabilizing aspect is the second in a series of three that began on November 15, 2012, and will recur on October 5. Instead of waiting for Uranus the Awakener to reveal a problem you've been avoiding, consider what adjustments you can make now to ease unexpressed tension before it reaches a breaking point.

You can recover your sense of control by letting others know what you want when three planets move into unambiguous Taurus and your 5th House of Self-Expression: Affectionate Venus leads the shift on April 15, followed by the Sun on April 19 and insistent Mars on April 20.

Instead of withdrawing into the privacy of your inner world, seek creative and playful ways to show others what's really in your heart. But it's not all fun and games when the inflexible Scorpio Full Moon Eclipse on April 25 conjuncts somber Saturn in your futuristic 11th House, testing your commitment to going the distance in pursuit of your goals. Paradoxically, recognizing your limitations gives you the freedom to accomplish even more than you expect.

Keep in Mind this Month

Although your anxiety grows in proportion with your uncertainty, you're wiser to choose a radical approach now than to always follow the most reliable path.

Key Dates for Capricorn

April 7-10: Fools Rush In

You're riding a creative wave on April 7, when flirty Venus in impulsive Aries hooks up with sexy Mars. This passionate combo may trigger romantic urges, but it might be a bit overwhelming for your naturally reserved personality. Being overly aggressive, insensitive, or even inappropriate could damage your reputation. The impetuous Aries New Moon lands in your 4th House of Home and Family on April 10, freeing you to make a fresh start. But cerebral Mercury crosses paths with resistant Saturn, so think about the consequences before you begin a project around the house or at work. Proper planning could prevent headaches down the road.


April 12-15: Call of the Wild

If your goals have become rigid, you may see them shattered by the disruptive Saturn-Uranus quincunx on April 12. You're ready for action on April 13, when inquisitive Mercury fires into fearless Aries to blast you out of your cautious mental grooves. But just as you talk yourself into doing something significant, delectable Venus enters bucolic Taurus and your 5th House of Love and Play on April 15, enticing you to slow down and enjoy yourself instead of pushing forward. Slip into something more comfortable, settle into a delicious meal, or turn on the charm in the pursuit of sensual pleasures.
