Horoscopes for April 2024 by Jeanne Douglas

Aries (21 March to 19 April):
With the Sun moving through your sign this month, not only is it ‘birthday’ time but expect light to be thrown on a long-term issue, solving something painful for you. Your willingness to communicate and discuss matters puts you into a decidedly advantageous position. The new moon in your sign heralds new beginnings.
Taurus (20 April to 20 May):
With the expansive planet Jupiter currently moving through your sign, no-one can keep up with you especially when it links to the genius planet Uranus also in for a long-term stay with you. In business, you’re formidable and socially you’re quite the dapper charmer! As Mercury joins in, you start to open up more and share.
Gemini (21 May to 21 June):
You may be forgiven for feeling exhausted and overwhelmed at times with so much planetary activity in your career and social areas of your life! Work is relentless and you’re really having to dig deep in order to deal with problems and come out on top. Some acquaintance brings up an old issue which is tiresome but needs sorting.
Cancer (22 June to 22 July):
You’re starting to analyse others quite accurately and some of your own insights amaze even you! This will start to transform your connection with them and they start to see a different side to you too. You’re inspired to conduct some research or study that gives you an advantage although work continues to be challenging.
Leo (23 July to 22 August):
A partner is grappling with some deep-rooted problems and realisations and although this is tiring, they will in fact throw some interesting light on your own problems. Friends generally all seem to have problems of one sort or another, which is demanding and you have an issue yourself linked to knowledge and study. Keep trying.
Virgo (23 August to 22 September):
You’re doing a good deal of work trying to understand others and to see life from their point of view. This is very helpful to you personally and you give others space to find their own way and to be themselves. Partners are particularly warm and loving right now and this is reassuring. A friend struggles with childhood wounds.
Libra (22 September to 23 October):
The new moon in your opposite sign of Aries this month links to a new friendship that is expected to naturally blossom and grow. This brings up memories of some previous wounds yet you are destined to purge this from your soul for once and for all. Problems at work are nevertheless enjoyably absorbing and challenging.
Scorpio (23 October to 21 November):
Life continues to teach you lessons in its masterclass and this is developing you beyond belief so start to have more faith in yourself and in your abilities! Work is difficult as old wounds re-emerge, demanding that you find a new way of dealing with them. You solve these by openly discussing issues and hitting them head-on.
Sagittarius (22 November to 21 December):
You are learning from recent developments that link to past issues. It’s almost a recurring pattern that you are observing! The aim is to be more aware and to get more control over things and only then can you move forward. Your domestic world is also hard going and demands lots of hard labour. Keep going.
Capricorn (22 December to 19 January):
You begin to understand your financial position more fully and to appreciate the potential clout that it can muster! This has the ability to transform your life in a way that you can only just start to appreciate. The daily routine keeps on throwing up one problem or another and family is stuck in old patterns. Sigh.
Aquarius (20 January to 18 February):
With Pluto more firmly in your sign now, expect to be made more aware of your own personal power although the lessons that you are learning also make you uncertain and humble. Your finances continue to present problems and need sorting out. The daily routine has become stuck with old habits and needs a good shake up.
Pisces (19 February to 20 March):
You work hard on practical tasks and find much energy and stamina to keep on going! Romantic thoughts dominate your mind when someone takes you by surprise. And now you can’t stop dreaming. You could do with discussing some long-standing financial issue with others before you are able to move on.
