Your Monthly Horoscope for April 2018
 by Victoria Fugit 

Full Moon on March 31st at 10º 45’Libra – 6:37 AM MDT
New Moon on April 15th at 26º 02’Aries – 7:57 PM MDT

Aries Astrological Symbol
Aries –The beginning of the month finds Sun, Mercury and your old friend Uranus in your 1st house. In mid-month these will be joined by the Moon and Venus. This would normally make for a busy month full of new exploration and discovery as well as innovative ideas and projects. However, this month you will have to contend with a few glitches as well. Weather glitches or pitfalls, depends on you and how your maturity meter is working. If your birthday falls in the beginning of April, you will have an intense square to your 1st house (sense of self) Sun (Life force, personality) and Mercury (thought patterns, belief systems) by Mars (impulsive action, warrior behavior) and Saturn (coldness, cruelty, frustration) from the 10th house (career and function in the public domain) and an opposition to the Moon(emotions, women in general) in the 7th (marriage and partnership). Mid-month, later Aries have Saturn, Mars, Pluto squaring your Sun, Moon. Bottom line – be kind, and compassionate to the spouse and play a cool game of chess at work or career.
Taurus Astrological Symbol
Taurus – This is a month to get projects started, as Venus is in Taurus and Mars in Capricorn are trine your Sun. Long distance travel may not go as smoothly as you might like with Saturn and Pluto playing havoc with your plans. Don’t push, just relax and enjoy supportive partnerships. Don’t involve yourself with the drama possibly playing out in friendships, even if you feel you absolutely must step in from obligation or “karma”. At this point in time everyone must work on themselves or get appropriate assistance with problems. Apply discernment over judgment in mulling over new beliefs or concepts. Is common sense an underlying factor or is there a sense of “it could be true”. There is much unknown and hidden in social relationships this month.
Gemini Astrological Sy
Gemini – There is a possibility of an old love or hidden love coming back into your life this month. The charm and emotional high may not be worth the cost, however, because there are some gnarley and harsh aspects in your house of divorce and legal matters. You may have an overly booked social schedule this month as well, which just may be enough to keep you out of harm’s way related to hidden romance. Neptune is still slowly, but surely, pulling the threads of your life apart to make room for a new, more expanded version of yourself. It can be exasperating, however, to not quite know who you are or were comfortable with being. Take comfort in knowing that if you follow your highest instincts, let go and “follow your bliss” you will very much like who you become.

Cancer Astrological Symbol
Cancer – Jupiter in Scorpio in your 5th house of creativity, pleasure, children and romance for the next year, calls you to a more expansive and possibly more intense exploration of what supports your pleasure and creative centers. Your 7th house of partnership and marriage may have a rough go this month as you have Mars, Saturn and Pluto. These can be planets of destruction, cruelty, domination, and harsh action. Do your best to stay in love, balance and responsibility. Projection of your own faults or fears on the “other” is usually what gets things fired up with these aspects. Walk away from conflict in the areas of marriage or business partnerships, as much as possible,. If things really do need to be shaken (not stirred), do it in a constructive, safe and responsible manner that leaves no one feeling damaged. Exploring your own creativity may be the most productive and joyful activity for you this month, Moon Child.
Leo Astrological Sign
Leo – The North Node in your 1st house is gently pushing you towards a new expression of your life path. Are you paying attention or still trying to follow the well-worn path of the past. Get out and play with life – you may be surprised by the new games waiting for you. Pay attention to health this month, especially teeth and bones. If you have an interest in history or archaeology, but haven’t pursued it due to time or obligations, this might be a good time to discover if either of these fields hold a passion for you. Your dreams may be vivid and fantastical – pay attention to them, by writing or recording them. Revisit them next month and you could find metaphorical gems of direction on your life path. If you are planning long distance travel this month, delaying until May might bring better experiences and results.
Virgo Astrological Symbol
Virgo – Your optimism should be high in April, communication skills good and new creative ideas flow freely. Venus in your 9th house brings inspiration on new ways to improve your finances. Stay away from legal disputes, as there can be unexpected and unwanted turnarounds in expected results. Neptune is still in opposition to your Sun, bringing rare intuitive abilities or a tendency to self-delusion. It’s in your house of partnership in a positive aspect to your 5th house of love, children and romance. Nevertheless, be cautious of any newly blossoming romances or sudden grumpy changes in children. There are some intense, aggressive and manipulative aspects in your 5th. Fascination with a darker, more intense experience or relationship could easily lead to misfortune. Stay tuned to your higher nature.

libra Astrological Symbol
Libra – The full Moon in your 1st house at the beginning of April sets a more emotional tone for the month. Investments espoused by a female friend may and could be too good to be true. For mid to late Libras, home and marriage could have some unexpected, overwhelming, intense periods. Remember, ”discretion is the better part of valor” and don’t add to the situation. On top of all that, your workplace may present some confusion or ambiguity that puts you on edge. Just think of “April showers bring May flowers” and this too shall pass. Long Spring walks and solitude go a long way to smoothing out the energies of this month.
Scorpio Astrological Sign
Scorpio – Jupiter in your 1st house for the next year is calling for expansion and growth of the person you know yourself to be in the deeper layers of self. This period of expansion is supported by Saturn and Pluto in your 3rd house of beliefs about reality and habitual thought patterns that keep you on automatic pilot. With Venus in your 7th house of partnership and Neptune in the 5th of love and romance, you may have a very pleasant and affectionate April. The only glitch may be in overindulgence, lack of self-discipline and a dose of unwillingness to work. Spring fever at its best, which may expand you in ways you’d rather not. Actually if you are in a position to be so laid back, it would be a good time to get to know the deeper layers of self. Enjoy your spring.
Sagittarius Astrological Sign
Sagittarius – Mars in your 2nd house along with Saturn and Pluto could put a damper on finances this month. The catalyst for unexpected expense may have to do with a minor medical problem or house repair that you have put up with for some time and are just now putting your mind to solving. Children play an important part in your life this month and bring excitement, joy and possibly unexpected moments of relief from the seriousness of life. Romance is not unlikely and could turn up on short journeys or visits to neighbors. Opportunities to learn a new skill or more fully develop an unused one could be valuable in a new path that is opening in front of you. Be patient - remember the fun is in the journey and you are about to start a new one that will have your imagination racing overtime.
Capricorn Astrological Symbol
Capricorn – This month with the Sun, Moon, Mercury and Uranus in your 4th house of home and immediate environment-- all in a challenging aspect to Mars, Saturn and Pluto in your 1st house of identity and boundaries, you may have to reign in your cold pricklies this month. Too much stimulation in your immediate environment can lead to frayed nerves and a strong need for solitude. Part of the comings and goings in your home seem to stem from beginning a construction or remodeling project. This may be a test of your ability to stay out of judgment and be more flexible and easy-going. The bright spots are your long-time friends and indulging in the romance and/or creativity Venus is stirring up in your 5th house. Take a deep breath and visualize the long term benefits of all this frustrating activity.
Aquarius Astrological Symbol
Aquarius – Jupiter square your Sun from your 10th house of career provides a chance for real growth and expanded opportunities. The test is in knowing yourself well enough not to over expand. To get the most from this transit you must know precisely where you are, what your real needs are and when you can’t handle more. Your communication skills are well up to any situation this month. However, there may be behind the scenes manipulation of your meaning from someone hoping your words miss the mark. With Venus opposed your Sun you just don’t feel like getting into conflict with anyone, and you would rather compromise than fight. Just don’t give up anything that is important to you. Keep your communication going, and in the end your true words will be heard.

Pisces Astrological Symbol
Pisces – Women and positive social interaction play a large part for you in April. Your employment is and will be going well in fact this is a year-long trend. Your finances are also on an upward trend, just don’t get cockey and assume more than you really have. This month you may spend more time with relatives. Policital situations in which there is not a lot of agreement may come up. Just roll with it, as your temper, although generally mild, may pop up unexpectedly.

About Victoria: The passion I have for Astrology began when I was twenty-four. I had been traveling in Europe for months and was becoming more and more curious about the letters my mom was sending me. They were waiting for me in each city or town I went to and it was as if she had a spy following me. She seemed to know my every move. Then she started to give me advice about what was coming up and what to watch out for. Coming home, I was horrified to learn that both she and my dad (LT. Colonel in the Air Force) were involved in Astrology. I asked them how two well-educated and intelligent people could possibly believe a superstitious myth that was so lacking in any proof of its claims. My dad said he had no belief in it. It worked, so he used it, much like electricity – we don’t believe in it, don’t know exactly how it works, but are happy to turn on the lights with it.

So I set out to prove that they were deluded. After three years of study in San Francisco and taking a correspondence course from a school in England, I apologized.
Astrology has been part of my life ever since and has led to my involvement with researchers and teachers in the human potential movement, such as Jean Houston (Institute for Mind Research), Werner Erhardt (EST), Elmer Green (Duke University), Joe Kamiya (early researcher in bio-feedback), Swami Rama (Himalayan Institute) and others.

Sun sign astrology obviously doesn’t give the depth of knowledge available in a full reading. Each chart is unique, like snowflakes. But it’s fun and entertaining. Hope you get both from this column. You can get in touch with Victoria at 435-259-9417 or
