Sun Signs April 2014

By Kris Brandt Riske, PMAFA


Aries (March 21-April 20): Expect more than a single incident of conflict this month as several outer planets align near the 20th. At least some relationships will be stressful, at work, at home, or both. But you'll also have a unique opportunity if you handle things with tact. Months end will bring a solar eclipse in Taurus, your solar money sign, which is auspicious for increased income during the following months. Above all, don't be hasty; think before you speak and act.

Taurus (April 21-May 21): Tend to any health-related concerns sooner rather than later, and avoid activities that could result in an accident. This is not the time to take chances, especially near the 20th. Deep thinking at months end could net new insights and opportunities, and mid-month could bring a Eureka! moment. Even if you're anxious to set new plans in motion under the solar eclipse in your sign on the 29th, hold off until late May; make plans between now and then.

Gemini (May 22-June 21): You and a friend or romantic interest could part ways this month. It might seem sudden, but the energy has been building for some time. On the upside, someone new could enter your life; if so, take things slowly because this tie could end as quickly as it begins. You could a achieve a career goal or earn well-deserved recognition (and compensation) this month. Save any extra income rather than spend on impulse, and be cautious with investments.

Cancer (June 22-July 22): You might feel as though you're putting out fires everywhere later this month. Chances are, that's exactly what you'll be doing at home, at work, and in relationships. Be wary if sense a conflict brewing at work and avoid taking sides and being drawn into a power struggle. The solar eclipse on the 29th will ramp up your social life through summer and into fall. If a home improvement project is on your agenda, hold off until late May.

Leo (July 23-Aug.22): The lunar eclipse on the 15th could trigger an urge for a new vehicle or electronics. Postpone the purchase until well after Mars turns direct on May 19, and use the time to research possibilities. Avoid travel around the 20th, when delays and cancellations are possible. The 29th will bring a solar eclipse that holds promise for career gains in the following six months. Begin to lay the groundwork in May, but without pushing too hard to advance your position.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Romance could capture your heart around the 11th, but the same influence could put you in touch with someone who stretches the truth. Be especially skeptical if a friend or someone at a distance promises great things. Difficult planetary alignments this month urge financial caution. Don't trust others with your money, check your credit report, and postpone investments. A chance encounter at months end could reconnect you with someone from the past.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): A lucky break could yield positive career results this month or the promise of good things to come. If the latter, you'll have a few hurdles to clear in the coming months before everything comes together. Relationship tension is likely near the 20th, when several outer planets clash. Although sudden events and changes are possible, its wise to postpone major personal decisions and actions until at least late May. By then you'll have a clearer direction.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Make rest and sleep your priorities this month, and take extra care of your health. If you're concerned about something, schedule a checkup. Social and romantic opportunities come your way throughout April, and you could hear good, if surprising, news from someone at a distance. Forego travel, though, as delays and cancellations are probable. Close relationships will be in focus during the six months following the solar eclipse on the 29th.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Your work life will be a major focus this summer and fall, thanks to the solar eclipse on the 29th. Plan ahead to take advantage of this influence that indicates a new start with potential for advancement. A dating relationship or friendship could end in conflict near the 20th, when you should avoid mixing either of those with money. Finances also require attention this month. Budget, with an emphasis on saving, and be cautious with investments.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): If it seems as though you need to everywhere, do it all, and be everything to everyone this month, you're probably right. Stress, tension, and conflict are the likely result, so set aside time for you, your interests, rest, and relaxation. Good news could reach you in mid-April, when you'll also benefit from the support of someone close to you. Reconnect with an old friend if you have the opportunity as it could have lasting and positive personal results.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19): Extra money could come your way this month, or you could discover a collectible or receive a family gift. A raise, new job, or promotion is also possible. However, be cautious on the road and postpone travel if you can as delays and cancellations are possible. The solar eclipse on the 29th highlights your solar domestic sector, so start planning improvement projects or begin a search for a new home. Take action after the third week of May.

Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20): Your attention will be focused on finances in the days surround the lunar eclipse on the 15th. Take action rather than put the matter off until later, and don't be surprised if it takes until late May to resolve any issues. Dreams around the 11th could be insightful and lead you to answers, as could the days surrounding the solar eclipse on the 29th. Reconnect with old friends at months end, but postpone plans for a get-together; you could change your mind.
