Monthly Career Horoscopes - April 2019
Things slow down a little professionally this month and the timing couldn't be better. While the last of the faster planets left your career sector early last month and the pace should have dialled back then, having Mars in your income sector has maintained the hype. Mars finally left on 31st March and while there is still plenty of support between forces on the income and career fronts, neither are in any kind of hurry. Instead, with Pluto slowing down ahead of a retrograde turn in your career sector on 25th April and Saturn on 30th April, you should notice that the pace is slowing down. With both needing to come to a standstill in order to turn retrograde, the pace will gradually drop back as the month continues. This gives you the whole month to adjust to this, allowing you to slowly adjust, rather than finding that you suddenly have to slam on the brakes. The Moon will move through from 24th April to 26th April, fuelling your professional instincts and imagination during both Saturn and Pluto's final days in retrograde motion. The Moon will be here when Pluto turns retrograde on 25th April, giving you a better chance to ride the waves as the tide turns. With both Saturn and Pluto then spending the next five months in retrograde motion and new developments on the job front not beginning until August, this will give you a chance to let things settle and play out. This does make the Moon's monthly visit to your work sector important, for this will give you an intuitive read on work and job matters, as well as a valuable chance to check in. The Moon will move through from 15th April to 17th April, giving you an intuitive read on work and job matters just days before the Sun's return to your income sector on 20th April.
This is not usually an active point of any year for work and job matters, with the very fact that you have a second Full Moon here demonstrating that. For you can only have a Full Moon in your work sector when the Sun is halfway between his last visit to your work sector and the next, putting you halfway between the last active period of the job front and the next. However, things aren't as quiet as you would normally expect. While not a planet, you have the asteroid Pallas Athena in your work sector and while she is not usually powerful enough to rate a mention, she has a pair of Full Moons doing that for her. You will have a Full Moon in your work sector at some point during the month long wind down of your old solar year and you had that Full Moon last month. However, as the Full Moon fell just hours after the Sun's return to a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart, by the time the Moon comes full circle again from 17th April to 20th April, he is still there. This will create a second Full Moon on 19th April. This is the first time you have had two Full Moons in your work sector in a row in 57 years and with Pallas keeping the wheels moving in the background and Venus having just left your career sector at the end of last month, this could be a game changer. Fortunately, you begin the month with the Moon in your career sector and here until 2nd April, this will ensure you begin the month with your professional instincts and imagination fuelled from the get go. With the impact from last month's Full Moon still unfolding, a second Full Moon on the job front this month and Mars having returned to your income sector on 31st March, there is the potential for unexpected developments across the income, work and career fronts.
GEMINI While the Sun left your career sector last month, Venus and Mercury are not so much tying up loose ends, but working to bring everything together. Venus returned to your career sector six days after the Sun left and just two days before Mercury's retrograde phase was due to end. As you move into the new month Venus is still in her early days in your career sector and Mercury is still in his early days in direct motion. The Moon will move through from 2nd April to 4th April, bringing a valuable chance to regroup, while fuelling your professional instincts and imagination as you begin bringing everything together. With Mercury aligning with dreamy Neptune for the third time in two months on 2nd/4th April, this will ensure you move into this with your professional instincts and imagination fuelled. This time as Mercury's intellectually savvy edge and Neptune's dreams and imagination merge, there is a chance to use this to cement your professional game plan and resolutions for the coming year. Venus' alignment with Neptune on 10th/11th April is less realistic, with a chance for some wishful thinking. Until Mercury leaves on 17th April Mercury is working to keep your head in the game, able to make smart choices, decisions and plans. Until she leaves on 21st April, Venus will work to fuel your professional confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. And with exciting income developments next month, the timing couldn't be better. By the time the Moon returns to your career sector on 29th April, Venus and Mercury will be gone and Neptune will be shifting into long haul mode, making this a valuable chance to regroup.
This is not only one of the most important months of this professional year, but a chance to really bring job and career forces together, along with a chance to more evenly distribute the load. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of April in your career sector, with the solar spotlight always on your career and professional situation, matters and options at this time of year. However, for the first time in 12 years, the Sun has returned to find lucky Jupiter in your work sector. It was the same for Mars when he returned to your career sector on New Year's Day and will be the same for Mercury when he returns on 17th April and Venus on 21st April. However, the dynamics are shifting, with the busy pace that the year got off to dialling back, with the Sun able to provide the transparency and awareness to see and work with that. The pace is dropping back because both Ceres and Jupiter are slowing down ahead of retrograde turns and with Ceres turning retrograde on 9th April and Jupiter on 11th April, by the time you move into April the pace is already dropping back. You may experience this as a sense of wariness, that after a busy end to last year and start to this year, you are ready to dial back. With both Ceres and Jupiter spending the next four months in retrograde motion, even the professional gods need to pull back. To have Ceres and Jupiter both turn retrograde while the Sun is in your career sector means there is both support and transparency. The Sun is opening new doors on the career front and when Venus and Mercury return, they will continue to pursue new opportunities and ideas. This sends a clear message to busy forces on the job front, that a more big picture focus on your professional game can take it from here. Even on the career front, with Uranus gone the volatility and unpredictability of the past is gone, replaced with a new sense of confidence and stability.
Do you remember as a child or maybe if you still run, that you can't just suddenly stop. We don't come with brakes so even after we cross the finishing line, there is still momentum. That is likely to be the case on the job front. Mars may have left your career sector in the final hours of March, but after spending over six weeks fuelling your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit, that momentum might continue into the early days of April. It might not be until the Moon moves through from 7th April to 9th April that you notice that a rush and at times manic mentality is gone. What you have is a valuable chance to pull back and get your bearings, before the Sun returns on 20th April. As you wait for the solar spotlight to shift onto your career and professional situation, matters and options, you will also notice that the pace is dropping back on the job front and that could happen quickly. In reality, this is a month overdue. It was Venus' departure from your work sector in early March that brought you to the point that the pace on the job front should have started to dial back. Instead, with Mars in your career sector and especially as he aligned with Saturn and Mars on the job front in the second half of April, this kept things energised. With Mars gone there is nothing to fuel that urgency and this will see a rush mentality evaporate on the job front as well. This is being exacerbated by the fact that both Saturn and Pluto are slowing down ahead of their retrograde turns later in the month. With Pluto beginning a five month retrograde phase in your work sector on 25th April and Saturn on 30th April, with Mars gone expect the pace of your whole professional year to ease back. Even the Sun's return to your career sector on 20th April won't change that, as this gives him time to simply explore your options.
Held back by a retrograde phase last year, Venus didn't even return to your work sector until early March, almost two weeks after both the Sun and Mercury left. This saw work and job matters that should have run their course by the end of February instead flare up again and with Venus having just left in the closing days of March, this should give you a break until the Sun returns to your career sector, later next month. While work and job matters have now run their course and will continue to unfold and play out on their own, this professional year has just received another boost. This one might take you by surprise, moving into April to find that things have literally fired up professionally overnight. It was in the closing hours of March that Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos returned to your career sector for the first time since 2017 and not leaving until mid May, will spend the whole of April fuelling your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit. Until now the planetary activity has been in your work sector, with the focus on your job and what you do on a day to day basis. Mars' return puts the focus onto career matters, which is more focused on your path forward, your overall goals and where you are going professionally. Your work sector is the workhouse of the solar system, a time of year when you put your head down, tail up and do whatever it takes for as long as it takes. Mars' return to your career sector has your head up, looking at what excites you, your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit. With the Sun returning later next month and Venus and Mercury over the coming months, Mars is able to trailblaze a path for them.
The Sun may have left your work sector last month, but in terms of the opportunities and the benefits, it all happens this month. For the first time in five years, by the time the Sun left your work sector last month, on the equinox, Venus had yet to return. And with Mercury still in retrograde motion, it looked like and was a case of this smart and intellectually savvy planet waiting for her. Mercury turned direct just two days after Venus' return and together they're ready to bring things home on the job front. Where the Sun had the solar spotlight on your work situation, job matters and options for a month, Venus and Mercury are now able to take action. Mercury is a smart and intellectually savvy planet and not only back in direct motion but moving over the same ground for the third time, he has 20/20 hindsight to draw on. This time you are ready to make choices, decisions and plans. For Venus this is her one chance to fuel your job confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. In addition, there is a whole new energy this year, one that is lighter, more confident and despite Mercury's retrograde phase, more focused on the future. For the first time in nine years Chiron, the planet of healing is gone and not returning for another four decades, you are no longer weighed down by the past. With dreamy Neptune now the planet that will take work and job matters into the future, it is more about having a dream. Mercury's alignment with Neptune on 2nd/4th April is a chance to pool their resources, turning dreams into a game plan. Venus' alignment with dreamy Neptune on 10th/11th April is more about having a wish list. Until Mercury leaves on 17th April and Venus on 21st April, they will be working to create or position outcomes on the job front and to put work and job matters on the path you want them to continue on.
The fact that the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of April in your work sector, is about the only thing that could be considered the norm this month. This includes conditions on the job front itself, but also outside support. For the first time in 12 years, the Sun returned last month to find lucky Jupiter in your income sector, with both support and a lucrative sense of direction from the get go. The Sun also returned to find that Mars has already spent the first six weeks of 2019 in your work sector, with plenty of traction and momentum from the get go. Yet the Sun has also returned to find Uranus gone, taking the volatility and the unpredictability of the last nine years with him. In its place is a new sense of job confidence and stability. Things might appear more tame, without the dramatic highs and lows of the past, but you have been ready to get off that roller coaster for a long time. With Mercury not returning until 17th April and Venus until 21st April, this gives you time to simply explore your options, without any call for action. Even during the Moon's visit from 4th April to 7th April and the New Moon this will create on 5th April, comes with little or no urgency. It is not until Mercury and Venus return that you will have heart and mind on the same page and in the game, ready to make choices, decisions and plans. With Venus and Mercury both here well into May, throughout the Sun's time here it is more about simply observing, while the solar spotlight is on your work situation, job matters and options. It is once Venus and Mercury return that you will have a chance to start bringing everything together. You might be wary from the journey over recent years, with this month's easier pace just what you need in order to regroup.
Because Mars only wrapped up a nearly seven week visit to your work sector in the closing hours of March, you might not notice his absence at first. That manic pace only ended on 31st March and for a while, things will be operating on the pace and momentum this has created. Yet you will start to notice that no additional urgency is being added and as you accomplish things that more isn't added to your 'to do' list. You will find that you are starting to finish or accomplish things and that you even start drifting into the slow lane at times. Don't fight this, because in between Mars' departure from your work sector on 31st March and the Sun's return on 20th April, there is a valuable chance to catch your breath, let things settle and even recharge your batteries. However, things are unlikely to go off the boil and for the first time since Uranus' return last month, there is a chance to get a feel for his influence. Uranus is in your work sector until 2026, with a lot of water set to pass under the bridge over the next seven years. It was impossible to hear Uranus' less urgent message while Mars was here, but this month you have that chance. This will be especially so as the Moon moves through from 7th April to 9th April. As the first visit since Mars left, the last before the Sun returns and before the Moon itself returns as a New Moon next month, this is a quiet and unrushed chance to simply check in. With Pluto beginning a five month retrograde phase in your income sector on 25th April and Saturn on 30th April, a lack of urgency is also taking hold on the income front as well. By the time the Sun returns to your work sector on 20th April and the solar spotlight shifts onto your work situation, job matters and options, there will be time to slowly explore what this exposes.
This should be a slow point in your professional year, with little if any planetary activity on the job or career fronts. While the Sun will return to your work sector later next month, always has and always will, that doesn't explain why things will feel very different from the get go. Things already had a surreal feel after last month's Full Moon on the career front left you with a lot of unfinished business. This is a Full Moon that falls at the halfway point between the Sun's last visit and the next and therefore at the least active point of the year on the career front. However, for the first time in 57 years, the Moon will return from 17th April to 20th April, creating a second Full Moon on 19th April. The last time you had two Full Moons in your career sector in a row was in 1962 and what began on last month's Full Moon, will conclude on this month's Full Moon. However, the professional landscape has changed in that time and it all changed in the final hours of March. For it was on 31st March that Mars returned to your work sector and will now spend the whole of April firing things up on the job front, including your work passions, fighting and competitive spirit. To have Mars in your work sector during a rare second Full Moon in your career sector will ensure that whatever this triggers, the warrior planet of the cosmos is here to catch the ball and run with it. You also have the asteroid Pallas Athena in your career sector all month and while normally not powerful enough to rate a mention, she is more than capable of maintaining the momentum from last month's Full Moon. With Venus having just left your income sector late last month and the Moon here until 2nd April, this month could deliver some real surprises across the income, work and career fronts.
While there is no planetary activity in either of your two professional houses there is definitely something brewing, especially on the job front. Just having Mercury in your income sector until 17th April and Venus until 21st April is boosting your job confidence, with both moving into a friendly alliance with the North Node in your work sector, during their final days. This is the tip of a very large iceberg, with a more powerful alignment between Neptune in your income sector and the North Node on the job front set to peak just before a total solar eclipse in early July. What Venus and Mercury will do, as the Sun did before them, was expose the growing confidence and support on both fronts. The reason why there are no signs of real movement on the job front is that while you have the North Node here, this is a force drawing you towards future opportunities, opportunities that will peak around the time of a total solar eclipse on the job front in early July. While the North Node is supported by planets in your income sector, there are no actual planets in your work sector, so you are still moving towards opportunities, rather than having arrived. Things will change dramatically when Mars returns to your work sector on 16th May. However, there will be signs of movement on the job front from 21st April, the same day Venus leaves your income sector. This is when Juno returns to your work sector and while an asteroid and not a planet, this is the first tangible support the North Node has had, since returning in November. Returning nearly four weeks ahead of Mars, this is a chance to start easing into what will be the most active months of the year on the job front, with the potential for major new beginnings ahead.
For the first time this year, there is a chance to ease back professionally, with a well earned chance to spend more time in the slow lane. With Jupiter in your career sector from November 2018 to December 2019, there will be little chance to take your professional hat off this year, but there is a safety system built into this. Any planet that spends a year or longer in any area of your chart, turns retrograde once a year and this gives you a chance to not so much take a break, but ease back. Ceres, in your career sector until November will turn retrograde on 9th April and Jupiter, here until December will turn retrograde on 11th April. This is when both begin a four month retrograde phase, one that gives you a chance to pull over and with new doors not opening on the job front until early July, to spend some valuable time in review mode. This is also a chance to stop acquiring or beginning anything new and instead to let what you are already working on play out and unfold. When Jupiter turns direct in August, it will be time to bring things home and with things very active and busy on the job front by then, the final months of this professional year will be busy. This is very different to a Mercury retrograde phase, which just ended late last month. Where a Mercury retrograde phase can lead to mixed messages, misunderstandings and mistakes, tripping you up when you try and rush things, here you are not fighting against forces that want to maintain the right momentum. The whole professional tide will turn, with the professional gods moving into review mode and allowing you to do the same. Over the next four months both Ceres and Jupiter will retrace the same steps taken over recent months and after turning direct in August, will retrace the same steps a third time. With Jupiter not returning for another 12 years, this is a chance to turn back, go back over old ground and to make sure no stones have been left unturned.
