April 2021

Aries (March 20 – April 20)

It is said that a healthy body is a healthy mind. Avoid traps such as addictive behaviours like overindulging in food, booze or drugs. You’re going to be busy dealing with scrambled ideas and thoughts. Physical activity will keep you grounded when you have to plan any new direction you want to go in.  Your friends and partners will be there to help and to talk you through any difficulties you may be facing. You tend to be head-strong, but you need to learn when to accept things are going a different way.  That will make your path easier.

THEME OF THE YEAR, Not everything comes easy, so work hard and do what’s right for you.

Taurus (April 20 – May 21)

Sure, you can take that siesta after lunch.  Kick up your feet and try to chill for a bit. Think of this month like you have just pedalled up a hill, and you‘re going coast down the other side. There is always time for business and more business, but a good nap will get you charged up.  Relaxing is like a necessary medicine.  It will charge up your mind and let you develop a plan to figure you how to get what you need. You might get a glimpse of how you want to transform relationships by understanding how to balance both what you and the other needs. 

THEME OF THE YEAR, The same old isn’t working for you. Shake things up for the better.

Gemini (May 21 – June 21)

What and who you expect you are is going to be in question this month. You can fantasise you are the Incredible Hulk or Marie Currie, but others may see you as Pee-Wee Herman or Phyllis Diller. Remember, perceptions are just that. What you have to draw on is the connection you have with other people. You should not dismiss the emotional support they can give you. Regardless of what is going on, you can make the most of your opportunities this month, but you have to take action. The only thing is you have to heed your limitations.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Your choices decide your future. Be part of the decision!

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Time to switch from fun and games to get down to work. Sure, it is okay to fantasise, but if you don’t take action, nothing is going to happen. The folks around you can help lend you a hand, but you need to take it in order for them to help! Think of it like the old days when you had to do a mail campaign. One person stuffs the envelopes, and the other seals them and puts the stamp on them. Look beyond the things of the past and take action for the future you want to have. Take some time for reflective contemplation as that will help you clear your head in between busy periods.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Your values will be challenged. Learn to adapt but also to stick to your essence.

Leo (July 22 – August 23)

When illumination comes, it doesn’t have to be a profound event like being knocked off a horse or anything like that. It sometimes is just that sudden realisation of what it is you have to do. That’s step one. Step two, if you want to make things happen, is to plan your actions accordingly. When a musician executes their solo, they have years of experience behind them and practice. Running 42km without training will land you in the hospital. Now is an excellent time to capitalise on events to give you more freedom.  Fly and be free.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Revolutions don’t have to be destructive; they can be creative. Make things happen.

Virgo (August 23 – September 23)

You may be holding onto outdated dogmatic beliefs.  This month you have to examine if these are pushed on you by other people or just something you have outgrown. Some people do a spring cleaning where they removed junk from their house, and this is something you can do to remove junky beliefs limiting your progress. If you want to go further than you have been going, you have to unload some of that burdensome load you are carrying with you. Whether you receive an inheritance or a loan, make sure you put it to good use.

THEME OF THE YEAR , A gift can get used and put to use or just put in the closet. Your choice!

Libra (September 23 – October 23)

The serpent in most ancient cultures represented transformation and wisdom. When the serpent offered the fruit from the tree of knowledge, eating it meant you could not be naïve anymore. This month you will be provided with that knowledge, and you have to turn it into wisdom. How do you want to use it?  Do you want to let others know? They might not be ready to find out what you have to offer. What you need to do is to put it to good use so it can benefit you and others. One thing that should not change is being true to yourself. Lying to others is one thing but lying to yourself is never good.

THEME OF THE YEAR , True change comes from within. If you force the revolution, then life goes your way.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)

If you have to make a decision on anything, trust your instincts. Whether you want to figure it out or just go with your gut, it will work out but get ready for things to change on you.  Life is full of stop and goes, right and left turns, and hills and valleys. Don’t worry! You will be busy navigating your life, and time will fly because there is a lot to do. There is the opportunity to get creative in what is that you do. Don’t let the boundaries that others have set for you be what limits you. Break free of those limitations and go freestyling for a change. Life can be interesting.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Who said an old dog can’t learn new tricks. Always advance.

Saturn rules limits, your fears, your structure, and your skin and bones?

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Your creative gifts for self-expression need to come out this month. It would be best to have confidence in what you bring to the table, be it at work or at home. Fearing you are not good enough should not be in the deck cards that you are playing. Hold your chin up and let people know what you can do. Sometimes a bit of experience can go further than an encyclopedia of knowledge. You have the ability to mentor those around you. That being said, make sure you are ready to take the lead. If you’re worried, those around you will provide hints on your direction.

THEME OF THE YEAR , You know what you want, but you have to work to get it.

Capricorn (December 21 – January 20)

If you are going to make a move to further your career/status, this is a time to step up and go for it. Don’t ignore relationships along the way; in fact, they are what will help you get to where you are going. It would help if you were clear about your communications with people.  You may be prone to misunderstandings which could provide setbacks. Ensure you are actually making points while you talk and not talk to listen to yourself. Take time to develop a strategic plan to get things in motion and make your dreams come alive.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Learn from your ups and downs and make necessary, not whimsical changes.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

You are itching to get socialising. Keep in mind any protocols that must be taken into account. You want to get together with others because you want to share your ideas, but you feel limited. Call past acquaintances who are knowledgeable in what you want to discuss rather than just gathering whoever will listen. Avoid anything that may be a financial scam. If you are not sure, don’t go for it. The old adage of “if it is too good to be true, then it is” will be valid. You have the urge to change jobs but do your research first.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Growth comes from reflection and putting efforts into improvement. Make the change.

Pisces (February 18 – March 20)

There are times you need to lay down the law. As a Pisces, you have to do that all the time and even if it is only for yourself. Give yourself some rules which can make you focus on things that are important to you. Your values will come into question, or you may be pressed to determine what is important to you.  Don’t take your philosophy on life as the be-all and end-all because your views change as you gain life lessons as you grow. Pay attention to what your spouse/partner is saying. Partnerships are about listening to one another. Be ready to lend a helping hand.

THEME OF THE YEAR, You have to put in effort to achieve things, so don’t give up.
